DO: Get Your Grind On

Not only is Capricorn an emblem of hard work and sustainability, but Mars officially goes direct on Jan. 12. This homecoming jolts us out of our lethargy, making it a great time to revisit the projects, ideas, or deals that have been left on the back burner.

DON’T: Forget To Rest

Even CEOs like Capricorn need to recharge. Avoid burnout this season by carving out time for needed breaks and establishing boundaries. Not checking emails after hours or turning down overtime to get a few extra hours of sleep can go a long way.

DO: Plant Seeds

Capricorn season always kicks off the winter solstice, which is about self-preservation. It's an ideal time to create intentions and set goals for what you want to accomplish in the new year. Try journaling and using a vision board to design your ultimate 2023.

DON’T: Avoid Old Wounds

With Chiron stationing direct in Aries on Dec. 23, expect to face inner conflict. This transit is a time for healing, so don't be afraid to be vulnerable and address trauma or pain from your past. Leaning on a confidant or mentor is ideal right now.

DO: Quiet Reflection

Now that the transition to winter is inspiring us to stay in, it's a powerful moment for introspection. Review your 2022 by revisiting your journal entries and vision boards, or by taking a moment out of your day to reflect (and celebrate) your milestones.

DON’T: Compare Yourself To Others

With an overly ambitious spirit like Capricorn imbuing us with a competitive mindset, it can be easy to get sucked into doom-scrolling and self-critical comments. Practice daily affirmations or go on a social media cleanse to clear your head.

DO: Take Your Time

Winter slows things down, but that's especially the case since Mercury goes retrograde in Capricorn on Dec. 29, which prompts work bloopers, miscommunication among coworkers, and blasts from the past. Go at your own pace and pay no mind to restlessness.
