This is a time for relishing the idea of a long-term plan, dear Sagittarius, and for bonding with someone over a shared goal, vision, or responsibility.

You might even take some pleasure in making a budget, facing a financial situation confidently, or saving money now or this week.

Paring down is not as difficult if you have a solid goal in mind. You have an eye for practical details and for things that will last over the long term. Venus moves into Capricorn today and will transit the sign and your solar second house until January 17th.

This transit can stimulate your desire to accumulate new possessions, and/or beautify and improve existing ones. Your desire for comfort is strong during this cycle. Pamper yourself by centering yourself, through earthy activities that keep you in the here and now.

You have a sneaking suspicion that you overspent for the holidays and now you already regret it. Or, perhaps, you’re worried that someone won’t like the special gift you purchased.

In any case, fundamental issues of self-worth rise to the surface as valuable Venus joins judgmental Saturn in your 2nd House of Self-Esteem. Keep in mind that you can’t undo what has already been done.

Instead of reconsidering a past action, focus on what you can do now to address the situation. Learn your lesson and move on.

It has been years since Mercury spent any time on his own in Sagittarius, having to work with Saturn over the past three years and often here during your birthday month.

Yet after Venus left yesterday, Mercury’s first full day on his own in Sagittarius is a chance to pull back and take the time to hear yourself think.

Mercury allows you to keep your head in the game, but having just turned direct over the weekend he is in no hurry. This gives you time to think things through.
