Starting December 21st, the Sun enters the Capricorn sign, kicking things off with the Winter Solstice, the shortest day of the year. Capricorn also connects one year to the next, encouraging us to self-reflect in the first half of the season, and then use those insights to guide us through the new year. As you learn from the past and prepare for the future, we’ve got you covered with a collection of star sign inspired wines. Check them out below, along with our new Capricorn Season playlist on Spotify, where you’ll find a stellar collection of tunes to keep you bumpin’ all month long.
As the year comes to an end, you may find yourself having quite a few late nights at work. While a little extra spending money is always welcomed, especially this close to the holidays, make sure you’re setting clear work-life boundaries so that no one is taking advantage of you. Start thinking of some long term goals. Once the new year hits, you’ll be at your most productive.

Use this time to get a little introspective and really hone in on what your desires are, which will give you the upper hand in the new year.
