CapricornDecember 22 - January 19
Capricorn, check in with yourself. Today the sun in Aries comes into a tension with Pluto, who moves through Capricorn. This has the potential to create a rift between our sense of self, and the external elements of our lives. An active Pluto also means themes of the subconscious will rise to the surface. Anything we’re intentionally ignoring may start to reveal itself, in a build-up over the next twelve days that culminates with the upcoming Full Moon. Capricorn, as this energy moves through your sign, it’ll be raising ideas of identity – who you really are. You’re in a whole new chapter to last year, you’re a different person, with a different outlook on the world. Today, get introspective and check in with what still matters. What do you want to focus on next? What habits have you grown out of?
Believe in yourself dear Capricorn. Today the moon moves into Gemini, while the sun forms a harmonious connection to Jupiter, the planet of abundance. These planetary vibes will have us feeling refreshed, reinspired and somewhat renewed. Areas of our lives which seemed murky might just start clear up, through an epiphany or new perspective. There’s a clear way forward. Capricorn, the universe is prompting you to look at themes of self-criticism. You might be feeling more aware of negative patterns and limiting beliefs rising to the surface… or themes that you’ve ignored might come back to the forefront. Pay close attention to this process and feel the empowerment of awareness. You are the master of your thoughts – and you have the ability to choose better ones that will actually uplift you. There’s an old paradigm: that harshness towards ourselves is what’s required to succeed. This is simply not true. Capricorn, become your own cheerleader and notice how much changes.
Ruling Planet: Saturn, the Planet of Challenge
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.
