Who holds down the fort? Goats do! With an occasional assist from a Bull or
an Eagle, i.e., a well-grounded Taurus or an enlightened Scorpio. The Capricorn's
Christmas season this year centers on you, as always, and your interpretation
of the news you hear, the information you receive. Having Mercury in your sign
not only makes you more perceptive, it also increases your ability to communicate.
Mercury in Capricorn brooks no bullshit, so go ahead, make plans, map out the
coming year. Just tell someone who cares what's on your mind.
The focus is so not on you this holiday season, you might as well fade into
the woodwork or become an anonymous elf in Santa's workshop. It's your significant
other, or others, the business partner, your boss or an attractive client, who'll
command the attention. It's also possible that a parent could manipulate you
into doing what you'd rather not. Under the circumstances, go with the flow
(not an easy thing for a fixed sign such as yours) and enjoy whatever wretched
excess the others are planning.
It suddenly dawned on me that Santa Claus must be a Pisces. No other sign is
as popular this time of year. Who else spreads so much joy? What other sign
could become such a famous spokesman for the wholesale consumption of mood-altering
substances like glogg and eggnog? Then there's that sweet tooth, and all the
cookies. Well, you know your role this season. Give everything you've got, agree
to be worshipped from afar, do the impossible, make headlines, and once Xmas
is over, arrange to disappear for a while.
