With the Moon now in Capricorn taking us to the Sun soon to be in Capricorn, the usual serious tone is settling in, along with the winter, certainly here in Colorado.
The season is high, as glimmering lights spill their sparkle on gowns and tuxedos at holiday parties, concerts, and gala celebrations nationwide.
There's been some speculation about a return to elegance in the coming Capricorn years. I'm in favor of this. I love the country, I live in a rural enclave within a large city. I also love the urban beat, the night life, and the warmth of human celebration. There's magic and otherworldiness in the air when I put on my finest fabrics, my fabulous fake furs, and of course, my beloved rhinestones, and venture out for a night on the town.
It's been ages since I've done this, and I wouldn't mind opportunities to do it again. But most of all I would rejoice with the return of graciousness, manners, and elegance to all areas of my society.
Yes, I would welcome it enthusiastically.
