One of my friends -- a very Neptunian artist type -- has a Capricorn in her life, who recently helped her clear out a room packed floor to ceiling with stuff. She wants to turn it into a library/guest room, but was overwhelmed and didn't know where to start. She knew her Capricorn ally would take control and be demanding about what had to be done.
This kind of unsentimental, whatever it takes attitude is with us to the New Moon (Jan 11th), with five planets in Capricorn. Those of us that find it hard to "deal," get some resolve to see it through. There's also penetrating vision for seeing pathways that are based on the real world and your real gifts/resources/skills. It's an opening to insight about security, self-sustaining ways of living, and setting a standard that's aligned with your conscience and life purpose.
