It's nearly impossible to imagine that this year of dramatic twists and turns still holds a few surprises, but the winds of change continue to blow strongly through the end of the month. You're ready for the next phase of your journey as the adventurous Sagittarius New Moon on December 2 accentuates your 12th House of Endings. Its accommodating trine to Uranus opens your eyes to what you can accomplish if you don't let your fear of the unknown get in the way.
Fortunately, you're able to rely on the encouragement and support of others as magnanimous Jupiter in your 7th House of Partners trines trustworthy Saturn in your 11th House of Long-Term Goals on December 12.

Nevertheless, don't be lulled into complacency ... there's still plenty of work to do before the third and final recurrence of this trine on May 24, 2014.
The versatile Gemini Full Moon on December 17 lights up your 6th House of Work. Although you want to make improvements to your daily routine, a diffusive Jupiter-Neptune alignment tempts you to spread yourself too thin. The Sun's shift into your sign on December 21 marks the Winter Solstice, inspiring you to shine your inner light. Simultaneously, Venus turns retrograde in calculating Capricorn, possibly postponing the personal or professional satisfaction you thought was so close.
Aggressive Mars adds stress to the holidays by opposing disruptive Uranus on December 25 and squaring suspicious Pluto on December 30. Fortunately, you're able to minimize domestic squabbles by concentrating on sharing love rather than closing down with fear.

Key Dates for Capricorn
SUPER NOVA DAYS
December 24-27: Take the High Road
You can grasp and apply metaphysical or psychological concepts on December 24, allowing you to get along with others -- even amid chaos and mayhem -- thanks to an intuitive Sun-Neptune sextile. Focus on compassion when a cantankerous opposition between hotheaded Mars and incorrigible Uranus on December 25 incites conflict and tempts you to give in to irritability. Controlling your temper prevents tensions from escalating, but hard aspects from the Sun and Mercury to authoritative Saturn on December 26-27 test your resolve. Exercising objectivity and double-checking your facts should eliminate or minimize the potential damage.
December 29-31: Independent Streak
Mercury and the Sun square unorthodox Uranus on December 29-30, triggering you to recklessly break out of your routine in your search for freedom. Impatient Mars squares intense Pluto and messenger Mercury on December 30-31, motivating you to say and do whatever's necessary to make your case. It's useless to pretend that you're willing to submit to someone else's point of view; the most peaceful way to handle this potentially volatile situation is to just smile and walk away.
