CapricornDecember 22 - January 19
These final days of Leo Season are all about checking in with ourselves regarding ways we consciously or unconsciously keep ourselves small. It’s not too late to break out of your comfort zone, you know. Capricorn, Mars enters Gemini this wknd, and remains there for 7 months. You’re encouraged to revamp your fitness routine during this transit, as well as your eating regimen. You may have been too strict with yourself lately, and depriving yourself of what you want in order to remain “disciplined”. Mars’ transit in Gemini will help you learn the art of moderation. Definitely take care of your health, but be less rigid with yourself in the process.
Key themes: collaboration, expansion, self-worth, wellness, flexibility.
Capricorn, for you this month is a good time to pay close attention to your collaborations and who you share your energy and resources with. How are they making you feel inside? If something feels funny, don’t brush it off. You’ve got to stick with the ones that empower you, and make more space for them by ditching the ones that rob you of your life force.
On the 4th, Mercury will enter Virgo until the 25th, where it feels freer. You love rules, dear Capri. It makes life easier and keeps structures working. Just make sure that you’re not abiding by rules that are too constricting, to the point that they limit or even extinguish your creative fire. Find the expansive and sustaining rules, the ones that give you space to roam.
Venus then enters your area of joint ventures on the 11th, until September 5th, reminding you that deciding to share a life with someone else means giving up your personal freedom to some extent. But you’re also inviting something new into your life, something magical and transformative. This requires that you loosen up your control. Are you up for it?
The Full Moon in Aquarius is happening on the 11th as well, at 9:36 pm EST, inviting you to check in on what you do with what you have. Pay attention to the feelings that come up around your livelihood. What do you want to do differently in your life?
On the 20th, Mars leaves the manifesting energy of Taurus and enters the connecting energy of Gemini. This transit will be a long one, going until the end of March 2023. You may have a larger workload. But you’ll certainly have the energy to put into your work and your daily routines. It’s a great time to start to take better care of your health, and to do your yearly check ups.
Virgo Season swoops in on the 22nd, inviting you to explore the ideas, philosophies, spiritual practices, places that get your innovative juices flowing. It’s a great time to find ways to move your energy, in order to bring new dynamics into your life that can shift what makes you stagnant. Bring more fun into your days!
Uranus will be going retrograde on the 24th for the next five months, inviting you to be more flexible. This will help you tap into the kind of freedom you need in order to fully bring through your creative self-expression.
On the 25th, Mercury enters Libra until October 29th, inviting you to trust your authority. Speak through it, not in a despotic way, but in a way that you take into consideration your needs, the needs of the ones that you’re addressing, and the ones that will be affected by the actions that your words put into motion.
The month comes to an end with the New Moon in Virgo happening on the 27th at 4:17 am EST. Nothing that you or any of us do will ever be perfect, can you live with that? It’s important that you find the ease and the acceptance in making mistakes. It isn’t the end of the world. You live, you learn, you grow and you improve. And you have a chance to do it better the next time.

Where You’ll Find Them: Working their butt off, planning for retirement, stacking their money
What They Avoid: Laziness, procrastination, small talk
Capricorn, the 10th sign of the zodiac, is often the most hard-working and ambitious. In fact, Capricorn would benefit from not taking their selves or their lives as seriously they do — but that’s way easier said than done. They were born to be successful, and they feel a huge drive to surpass their own expectations and crush all of their goals. But unlike some super assertive signs, Capricorn isn’t extremely flashy when it comes to their determined nature. They keep it really low-key, only speaking when they feel like what they have to say improves upon the silence, and only laughing when they truly mean it. Capricorn keeps it real, even if it’s too real for the masses to handle, and that’s what makes them so special and unforgettable. The sarcastic and cynical Capricorn plays absolutely no games.
When you ask a Capricorn what they want to achieve, the list will be endless, and it will be extremely impressive. Capricorns thrive in positions of authority, such as being a business person, a lawyer, an entrepreneur, a principal or administrator, etc…They don’t do as well when it comes to taking orders from others, and that’s mostly because Capricorn does a much better job of calling the shots — they intuitively know what must be done to get the best possible results and they wouldn’t want to waste any time trying out other methods. Even if Capricorn works for someone else, they often become distinguished team members who are given leadership positions.
Having a Capricorn as a friend means that you have a constant shoulder to lean on. But don’t think that means cry on — Capricorn has little tolerance for people who feel sorry for themselves. Capricorn is the zodiac sign that experiences the most challenging experiences in their lifetime, but that also makes them the wisest, strongest and most mature of all the signs. Because Capricorn has such high standards for their own life journey, they know what it means to fight and to be a warrior, and they will love you in a tough-love manner to teach you to also stay strong amidst adversity.
As a lover, Capricorn has to constantly work on tearing down the walls they so carefully built. Capricorn must avoid letting their workaholic tendencies cause a rift in any relationship they do begin. Capricorn is best suited for a relationship where their partner agrees to let them pursue their passions and independent interests, and where they can feel motivated and inspired by their partner. They can’t be with someone who is unsure about their life direction or who holds them back from going after their ultimate goal. Still, Capricorn’s romantic lesson is to avoid trying to check off all the items of what an “ideal match” looks like, and to open up to the variety of possibilities that the Universe may present them with. Sometimes the high standards that Capricorn impose are more liberating than anything. Capricorn can shock their lover by loving them uninhibitedly, and without skepticism. It takes a very special kind of lover to see that side of Capricorn. It’s worth the patience and effort.
