Today is a day to consider letting things go. There is so much about us that is reminding us that we need to let go of things in order to make way for the new.

The Moon, in Capricorn, is waning, which is always a time of releasing and clearing away.

Pluto in Capricorn goes retrograde today, which also deals with letting things go.

Saturn, our planet of authority and rules, is in Capricorn as well.

What does all of this equate to?

Capricorn is a sign of climbing, it a sign of ambition, and being able to navigate difficult situations. Consider its associated animal, the goat, and feats it endures to get to grass, to be safe. The ledges it balances on boggles the mind—but it does so with shocking ease and grace.

However, it’s also a sign of control, for so much control has to be had in order to do what a goat does. Personally, I’m a Sagittarius/Capricorn Cusp (by hours), and there is a lot of Capricorn influence in me, and it definitely has it’s down side. Capricorns climb to get to the top, and they often sacrifice a lot to do so, from relationships to health.

So when we’re considering what we need to let go, we need to be considering what negative traits and influences around us are holding us back, are damaging our climbing ability, and work to release those things.

The good news is that Saturn in Capricorn is a positive influence over this. It is the planet of authority and rules, and thus, it can help you take control over what needs to get done in order for you to be successful. Therefore, especially considering that Saturn is conjunct with Pluto in Capricorn, you’ll find the strength and fortitude you need to accomplish this task.

I’ve developed a spread to help guide you in discovering that which no longer or may never have served you.
