It's understood that Hollywood sells Capricornication
Hello, I'm sorry, and also, you're welcome. It's 2022, and are you even human if you haven't lost it kind of a little bit? Aren't many of us struggling to return to work (ew, work)? Is our inner Capricorn trying it's hard to pull us through the hard times, but finding that even they can get stuck in the mud?
I've asked my tarot deck how shall I achieve clarity and calm in 2022, and I pulled the King of Swords. You can see him here, sitting proudly, holding strong, staring determinedly ahead. He's got a steady hand and a steady mind, and he's not afraid of what's to come. According to The Internet, the King of Swords is "a symbol of intellectual power and authority, and has the courage and intellect to achieve all that he desires". According to my tarot book (that's right, I know how to read), the King of Swords is a "profoundly fair person to the point that there is no space for grey areas between the black and white". Ummm, Capricorn much??????
I have a lot of Capricorns in my life, and I must say this King is much like they are - rational and reasonable and just. It looks like for me, I will reach tranquility by making measured decisions about my life and my relationships, and by being brave. Ow. I'm not a very Capricorn-y person, though I am known for being more stubborn and grounded than my other Gemini siblings. I have much to learn from my Capricorn Kings, so so much.
Capricorn Season Mix: Architect
For our Capricorn Season mix this year we have been blessed with a 60 minute belter from Architect. Whether you know him from the always active and always bouncy Prestige Pak, or his EPs and edit packs that are bound to set your heart aflame, OR his various and varied radio appearances - this guy truly never stops never stopping. A Capricorn through and through, Architect shows us creativity and passion and drive in every step he takes. He's brave and bold, and this mix is no exception.
"I wanted to explore a blend of sounds I love, across different styles of music: west coast rap drums, heavy Moog basses, darker percussive stuff, bright glossy Pop chords and infectious vocals.+ a couple new bits from myself as well a couple from the archive - yet again I find myself unable to get beyond 120. Love to Season crew for letting me be a part of this prestigious series. C Gang!!"
It is no coincidence that Capricorns are the GOATs. I can't decide what my favourite part of this mix is, because it makes my heart sing and soar and feel grounded yet light on my feet. The power of this cardinal sign lies in acceptance and growth and independence, so it feels only right to start this year off with this transcendent mix. Listen now, and tell your friends.
Taurus Season x Separation Anxiety
Reader, if you would cast your mind back to the heady days of April 2021 you may remember we hosted a wonderful Taurus Season livestream as part of Sable Radio's Separation Anxiety series. To brighten up these dark winter days and nights, Sable have uploaded the sets from Kindness, Sayang, Abena, m.Kwas, Say It With Your Chest and Fred M-G, as well as the conversation between Algernon Cornelius and Tayyab that formed part of that beautiful day. Watch them all on YouTube now, or access the archives via our website.

Venus Retrograde - Tell It To My Heart
As if there wasn't enough going on right now, Venus is in Retrograde. This happening in Capricorn season may be asking us to reflect on our commitments, our boundaries, and our relationship goals or progression in 2022. Venus is the planet of love, but that doesn't mean it only applies to lovers. We love our friends, our pets, our families, our housemates, our friends who live in the computer. How can we honour those connections, while still honouring ourselves and our boundaries?
Why not have a little read about how this Venus Retrograde will impact you depending on your rising sign, or what power lies in Unbeauty?
Finally, everybody wish our gorgeous Capricorn resident Tayyab a (belated) happy birthday. In case you didn't know, he's the freakin best. Here's a cute one from the archives to warm your cold hearts.
