Capricorn, sink into your own strength today. In the early hours of today at 6:21am EST, the intense moon in your sign forms a square with a powerful Aries sun. This aspect marks the second quarter phase of the lunar cycle, a time in the month where lunar energies start to heighten and come into a more active interplay with the sun. Here we see a beautiful activation of the moon in its home water sign, and the sun sitting comfortably in a fire sign. This will likely lead us to a feeling of balance and insight. For you Capricorn, this day is one for pouring love into yourself and recognising your own capabilities. If you feel so inclined, take a step back from people today, to create a safe space within yourself. The criticism, voices and judgement of others have become a little noisier than usual lately. Today, bring it back to yourself and what you already know in your heart. You’re strong enough to handle anything. You’re in the right place, and on the right track.

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.
