Just make sure that extra oomph steers clear of your wallet. Otherwise you may find yourself whipping out your Target card for three more books your kids will never read, that super cute but totally unnecessary kitchen gadget you saw on Pinterest, and a Funko Pop keychain. Weren’t you just swinging by for some shampoo?
Mars Retrograde enters Capricorn on the 12th, marking the first of two shifts this month for your ruling planet. This one might make you feel like you’re getting a crash course in sorting priorities.
