Saturn has returned home to your sign, which will feel good for at least three reasons. You’ll get some relief from your anxieties, which reached a peak in late 2017. Next, a missing part of you is now present and accounted for. Last is that you’re on track for completing many unfinished tasks — and letting go of the ones you don’t need to do. Get that bit out of the way.

Daily News Short Annual Horoscope for 2018, #1182 | By Eric Francis Coppolino
Aries

Aries (March 20-April 19) — Most people would rather lose themselves than find themselves, though you don’t have that seeming luxury. Yet with Chiron entering your sign this year (which last happened in 1968), you’ll find that self-discovery makes you bold, and that self-awareness is the first remedy in your quest to heal all that may ail you. Society is going through a mass-scale identity crisis, and you will run counter to that trend. Your best discoveries will come through the work that you do, and the success that you aspire to. There are times when your professional activities are the most spiritually meaningful aspect of life, and this is one of them. Let your work be driven by passion; never complain, only strive to do what you do in the most beautiful way you can. As in your relationships, you don’t need some abstract notion of connecting or oneness; reach for the heat and light of deep emotional and erotic sharing, knowing it’s your most direct path to enlightenment. For your Eric Francis horoscope this week, please see this link.

“One’s relationship to change is the underlying reality that determines how one handles transits. This relationship counts for a lot now, and you would be wise to bring it to full awareness. What you’re currently experiencing is the culmination of six years of nonstop and ever-increasing energy. All of that has been excellent preparation. Now, you’re experiencing the actual threshold, the invocation of your new life.”

Taurus

Taurus (April 19-May 20) — Of all the signs, yours may be the one that most prefers things stay the way they are for as long as possible. Yet with revolutionary Uranus entering your sign this year, you will experience the desire to change in ways you might have never expected. You will feel this first as a surge of energy, followed by the sense that there’s much more to life than you imagined. The first place this starts to take up residence is in your intimate relationships. Next is a more tangible sense that, no matter how old you are, you have a future that’s worth building, reaching for and aspiring to. Yet once Uranus is in your sign (which starts right around your birthday) you will want to exceed all limits, and become a master of self-reinvention. Contrast that with your previous mastery of self-preservation and a gift for stability that comes in handy on our planet. With the world in a state of constant upheaval, your ability to transform yourself will be a rare and precious gift. For your Eric Francis horoscope this week, please see this link.

“You possess actual creativity, actual devotion and a strong tendency to be ethical. If you don’t let fear contaminate your mind, you will be able to connect these things in the form of your true vocation. If you are involved in what you consider to be your true vocation, you will have opportunities to go deeper and to bring in something that has the power to change you and change the world around you. That’s the mark of truth: it’s alive, it’s active, it’s provocative, and it compels you to establish an ongoing relationship with it.”

Gemini

Gemini (May 20-June 21) — Your relationships have been something of a whirlwind the past few years; and you’ll be happy to hear that in the coming seasons, you’ll be encountering others not in the air but on solid ground. Most of the difference will come from your newfound desire to commit yourself, whether in business or personal contexts. The key will be engaging with the right people, for the right reasons. Consider following a simple life policy: never make a promise that you’re not fully prepared to keep, which means both willing and able. With that as your guide, you may invest yourself in situations, confident in your identity. When you lose your sense of center, that’s when to take a step back, and spend some time alone. Your planets are describing the potential of having a stable person somewhere in your life, someone perhaps just a little older than you, whom you will recognize by their wisdom. For now, the purpose of your relationships is getting to know yourself. For your Eric Francis horoscope this week, please see this link.

“The two most significant aspects of life — love, and work — are coming in at full strength at the moment. You’re in a moment unlike any other you’ve lived through, at least speaking from the viewpoint of your astrology. It’s all so much that you might not be so thrilled; you may not see the opportunities in the wild mash-up of factors that are influencing your life. To begin with, I am here to remind you that you’re larger than it all.”

Cancer

Cancer (June 21-July 22) — Yours is the sign associated with cozy homes, good food and families. On a closer look, though, your knack for navigating the complex and competitive world of business is one of your strongest suits. So, too, is your ability to find yourself through the work that you do. These factors are being called forth from your character now, and will be for some time to come. Saturn now moving through your opposite sign Capricorn is an invitation to take your goals and aspirations seriously, and to clear out of the way anything that does not support your chosen purpose. That means engaging in relationships only with people who help create a supportive environment, and those who appreciate the positive influence you have on their life. (This mutuality must infuse every relationship you have, whether personal or professional.) It’s time to focus your efforts on what enhances who you are rather than in any way diminishes you. What for others might merely be “making a living” is for you more about creating yourself. For your Eric Francis horoscope this week, please see this link.

“You are the kind of person who must become your intentions and give everything all you’ve got. You feel better when you do this, even if you’re having to stretch a little. Being half-hearted does not suit you. You are a whole-hearted person, you want to feel that fully, and you want to be appreciated for what you do. This is the essence of self-esteem and it’s currently one of the most basic elements of your astrology.”

Leo

Leo (July 22-Aug. 23) — Your astrology is calling on you to create a sense of order and organization in your life. Your creative energy has been all over the place, which has led to some interesting experiments; though now it’s time to be more focused. This includes your personal projects and what you consider your professional work. A little discipline will go a long way. You will find it easier to adopt a more structured schedule and physical work environment, if you make just a little effort. And any movement toward health, fitness or wellbeing needs structure as well. Beginning with food would be a wise point of orientation; walk around all day reminding yourself “you are what you eat,” and that fast-food taco might not seem so appealing. The process of elimination is your best friend: notice what does not serve your best interests, and then subtract it. Once you have cleared away what does not work, it’ll be a lot easier to see what does. Not only that; you’ll feel better, and have more time and more space to maneuver. For your Eric Francis horoscope this week, please see this link.

“The more you take a proactive and creative role, the less it will feel like changes are happening to you and the more it will feel like you are working with the incoming forces to create the change that you want. Therefore, pay close attention to just what that is: know what you want to change. I suggest you work with two lists: what you want to resolve or eliminate, and what you want to create. Both will happen as part of the same process.”

Virgo

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sep. 22) — There’s a little child in you who wants to come out and play. Yet that means serious play, the kind that’s meaningful, and which you lose yourself in. It might involve your profession or vocation, but is more likely something personal that exceeds the relevance of a hobby. Your astrology describes you making something, such that there’s a tangible, useful result when you’re done. This is about passion for what you love. In a similar way, your romantic relationships need a job. It’s nice to think that people can get along without a core purpose that unites them, though that’s not usually the case. An example might be anything from raising children to building a business to creating a life that suits your mutual pleasures or interests. Whatever it might be, your connection to a conscious, well-expressed mission will both ground you and help open doors. In practical terms, if you’re dating, look for people who would prefer to attend a talk or go to a museum rather than some form of idle entertainment. We all need diversions, though those are easily enough found. For your Eric Francis horoscope this week, please see this link.

“You could say that apart from all the psychological concepts attached to self-esteem, the experience you’re looking for is feeling good about who you are. This is a feeling, not a concept. Rather than strive for the feeling, the thing to do is give yourself the experiences that you want; the experiences that will enrich you and help you develop into your personhood. To feel good about yourself, it’s vital that you know how to express who you are, and what you feel.”

Libra

Libra (Sep. 22-Oct. 23) — For many moons, one of your most important personal growth projects has been emotional independence. This applies to your family and to any other aspect of life where your household or living situation is involved. Pursuing this objective has at times been messy. Perhaps you sent some mixed signals about needing to be free and also needing human contact — though in fact both are true, and they don’t contradict. This year begins a process of tidying up your boundaries. Start with something simple, like making sure all your doorknobs work; and if a lot of housemates have passed through, change your lock. Then clean some closets. Next, evaluate whether you have a space where you can actually enjoy some privacy any time you need it. For as hard as you work, you should have at least that much. Then set some guidelines for how you handle your family. They are not your masters, nor your judge, jury or guidance counselor. Step by step, day by day, build the emotional life that works for you. For your Eric Francis horoscope this week, please see this link.

“Your workplace must be not just habitable but truly supportive. You simply must like the place where you work, or you risk your mental and emotional health. Others can get by with jobs they hate, or substandard working environments; you cannot. Therefore, invest the time and energy that you need to have a place of work that supports your creativity, your health and your wellbeing.”

Scorpio

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 22) — Jupiter in your sign is magnifying certain aspects of your life, like living in a house with gigantic furniture, or where your innermost thoughts appear projected onto your living room wall. You’re seeing everything that you’re made of, and you’re also seeing certain missing elements. Cutting to the chase, the central question of your life is: what do you want? Don’t be content with stock answers (happiness, a relationship, winning Lotto). What do you actually want, as relates to your stated purpose for living? Have you even worked that one out? It matters. Events of this year will draw the distinction between thinking you know, and actually knowing. You must go beyond appearances, and get to the heart of the matter. That will involve rinsing off or washing out the programming of the last 100,000 advertisements you were exposed to (all designed to tell you what you supposedly need or desire). You must also get yourself beyond any care you have about what people may think about you — and that will take courage. For your Eric Francis horoscope this week, please see this link.

“You must gather with people who share common values with you. You can no longer afford to invest your precious time and psychic energy with people who do not embody the highest vibration of what you desire, and know to be true. You will feel better about yourself when you can speak openly about what you value the most, and spend time with those who share your spiritual goals and your purpose for living.”

Sagittarius

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 22) — You have just experienced three years of Saturn in your sign — an event that happens just two or three times in a lifetime. This may have felt like an endurance test, or a time of enforced growth and maturity. First, evaluate what you’ve accomplished during this time, going back to late 2014. Consider the ways you’ve evolved your relationship to yourself. Consider how you relate to your work and life purpose. Going forward, you must use what you’ve learned during Saturn’s visit to your sign. You have unusual manifesting power, and your reliance on self-knowledge will serve to filter out goals, desires and options you don’t really want. Money becomes an important focal point under this astrology, though there’s an added twist: you’re now on notice that you must fully endorse, and feel good about, what you do for the sake of cash. This is the time to live up to your own values, not to violate them. Based on your experiences the past three years, you actually have the knowledge and power to do this. For your Eric Francis horoscope this week, please see this link.

“To succeed, your work plan must have metes and bounds. You must choose the specific things you need to accomplish within a specific timeframe, and these choices must be prioritized. This does not mean that you will follow your plans exactly, and you’ll very likely alter your priorities as you proceed. Yet it’s essential to start with some organized scheme, so that you have an overview, and you have a first draft to revise.”

Capricorn Birthdays 2018
A Special Year-End Gift for Capricorns

“Your passion, deep care and love always shine through; and you have the gift of all great teachers, of making one feel that one is being personally addressed, respected and taken care of.”

— Liz Glanville

Dear Capricorn Friend and Reader:

Are you looking for an in-depth review of your year as 2017 winds to a close? You’re invited to listen to last year’s Capricorn reading, as a gift from us, as you set your intentions for the New Year.

Planet Waves

Once you’ve looked back at where you’ve been (and check Eric’s accuracy), I hope you’ll pre-order your 2018 Capricorn Birthday Reading. This is the reading to get if you have a Capricorn Sun, rising sign or Moon and want an intensive spoken-word meditation on the major astrological events of the year to come.

With Saturn in your sign for nearly three years, you have a powerful ally at your side as you set goals and work toward them. You also may have some questions to answer, such as: How do I take even greater ownership of my choices? And: How can I define myself as an individual and still ‘belong’ to a tribe?

You have a unique set of challenges, opportunities and missions on the way, Capricorn. And you’ll be navigating them in a world where the ground keeps shifting rapidly — both culturally and astrologically, as Uranus enters Taurus and Chiron enters Aries. Luckily, you’re a sure-footed goat — and you have some of the best internet astrology available on the internet at your fingertips.

“The Capricorn 2017 Birthday Reading was expansive and mind-blowing, and absolutely on the money in everything. You helped me immeasurably as I change and change and grow, and change some more. What a time!”

— Linsey

Eric will serve as your cheerleader, thought-provoker, perspective-shifter, inspiration-stoker and deputy problem-solver in two segments of astrology (at least 30 minutes each) plus a tarot reading that combine the best of his therapy training, life-coaching skills and well over two decades of astrology experience. You also get an extended description of your sign.

You can still nab this reading for only $33. This is the lowest price we offer — the price will increase as soon as the reading publishes, which could happen later today.

Happy Birthday, Capricorn!

Amanda Painter

P.S. The 2018 Capricorn Birthday Reading is distinctly different from the Capricorn written reading available in the upcoming Art of Becoming annual project. It covers your key astrology in a different format and emphasis, capitalizing on Eric’s more intuitive, improvisational skills. The Birthday Reading also makes a fantastic gift for a loved one!


 

Capricorn

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 20) — Saturn has returned home to your sign, which will feel good for at least three reasons. You’ll get some relief from your anxieties, which reached a peak in late 2017. Next, a missing part of you is now present and accounted for. Last is that you’re on track for completing many unfinished tasks — and letting go of the ones you don’t need to do. Get that bit out of the way. Unresolved matters, even small ones, are an energy drain and they place stumbling blocks on your path to the future. Yet your most meaningful task for the coming four seasons is defining yourself in a way that’s not dependent upon tribal identity. This is challenging because so much of your self-concept has been intertwined with a concept of family that’s likely to be outmoded. While you’ll still be associating with some of these people, the key to your happiness is being different without having to hide that fact. You don’t need to revolt. Yet you can be yourself at all times, and love yourself for it. For your Eric Francis horoscope this week, please see this link.

“You are someone who is more connected to the wider flow of the human experience than you might otherwise be. Even if you’re not an official leader, or into politics, you are connected (often rather consciously) to aspects of life that extend far beyond yourself. This connection sometimes comes bursting into your life when you’re not vaguely interested. Sometimes you feel it as a direct calling, and you may or may not know what to do with that.”

Aquarius

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — Many factors of your astrology describe de-cluttering: letting go of old patterns, coming to terms with the past, and finding new approaches to relationships. Aquarius is the sign of patterns and how they crystallize. So it will be helpful if you choose a habit to change, then in the same gesture establish a new way of moving in the world. Here’s an example: when you’re coming home from someplace, take a different route from the way you got there. Change something, so that you slip out of habitual behavior. Try this with food, with your social life and with the organization of your living space. Strive to meet new people, and to be accepting of them. Let your life be a dance, and allow yourself to be guided by seemingly random experiences. You know that you have important work to do. You are allowing yourself to have new goals. You also know that you need to love in a deep way. All of this implies change: letting go of what you don’t want, and embracing what offers you love and creativity. For your Eric Francis horoscope this week, please see this link.

“Within the morphogenetic fields of your sign is an inbred rebelliousness of mind. This comes with the refusal to accept patterns imposed by others; the capacity to hybridize one’s views and have original positions on social and political issues; which in turn leads to a kind of eccentricity that is very much a quality of your nature. So too is a distinct inventiveness, if you can keep your mind awake, alert and young.”

Pisces

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) — The beauty of your astrology is that you can now see what is possible, whereas before, this was not so clear. You have the confidence to know you can turn possibility into potential into manifestation. This is more like learning how to ride a bicycle than it is fabricating something out of thin air. There are methods involved, and you already know many of them; all you need to do is give yourself a little push and attempt something that you think is just a little outside your known capability. Over the past few years, you’ve established a reputation for yourself, and now you get to use that as a tool, resource or commodity. Focus on the practical aspect of whatever you’re doing, whether it’s building your career, establishing or widening your community, or creating something entirely new in the world. Think of your work as carpentry rather than the expression of some mysterious talent. Imagine that changing the world means building a solid, beautiful cabinet, rather than some abstract idea. Appreciate the cosmic beauty of sandpaper and wood glue. For your Eric Francis horoscope this week, please see this link.

“After many adventures, misadventures, developments, challenges and crises, you’ve integrated the many seemingly separate facets of who you were into someone who you now most distinctly are. I suggest you make a study of this gradual transformation that’s taken over your life, and which is nearly complete. Feel the ways in which you’ve worked out problems that seemed to have no solution. Notice how your confidence level has increased.”

    Eric, As always, thank you for your amazing insights and articulations on the horoscopes. Being a Capricorn Sun & Ascendant, it has been a roller coaster ride of never feeling complete and therefore never being able to complete or even articulate some of my most burning desires. In the past few weeks, it has been like missing pieces of the puzzle are now there and I am feeling a rich wholeness to my very core. Ever since I was a child, there has been a voice inside of me saying, “Keep dreaming, for there is more to life than you could ever imagine”. I sense the Portal of the Greatest Me, is one I am stepping through right now. Sending Blessings and Love to Everyone at Planet Waves.
