CapricornDecember 22 - January 19
Capricorn, slow it down. Today the collective will feel a harmoniously fiery aspect, as the Moon in your sign trines Mars who retrogrades through Aries. We might suddenly see the way forward: our life dreams may start turning into clear, actionable steps. Or, this might look like the desires of your inner world coming fusing together with a newfound sense of motivation… Capricorn, this fiery energy will fill you with momentum. Rather than rushing forward with it, slow down, pause and ask yourself what it is that you want to achieve. These visions have changed for you, even just in the last months. It’s time to get clear on them.
Capricorn, where do you fit into the world? Look closely, it may be shifting. Today, as Mercury retrogrades through Scorpio, it comes into an opposition with Uranus. This means the day could carry a lightning shock type energy, as we see themes of exposure and skeletons coming out of the closet. We might experience an upheaval in our lives, or we could subtly notice truths that always lay beneath the surface… Capricorn, for you this all takes place within your sphere of the ‘collective.’ You might be questioning your place in the world, or how you fit into it. Today is a great one for vision boarding or journaling your way to some clarity. What unique gifts can you bring to others? What do you want to share with the world?
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.
