If Your Birthday is Jan. 2
(The Day of Self-Requirement) | Capricorn Birthday Reading | All Other Signs
Before you can allow someone into your home, you must first open the door. In a similar way, to accept the love and affection of others, you will need to be more vulnerable. This will remind you that others are sensitive and subject to your feelings as well. Beautiful things are possible in your relationships this year, if you proceed gently and consciously.
|Current Capricorn Weekly Horoscope
Stop yourself every time you notice yourself saying, “But what would my [mother/father/family] think?” This may be subtle; it may be below the level of tangible inner dialog, though the message will still come through.
|Current Capricorn Monthly Horoscope
Saturn’s return to your birth sign describes a sense of completeness you have not felt for a very long time, if ever. Take a moment to collect yourself: a week or two of reflecting on your goals and preparing your mind.
Written in the Planets
Everyone knows it’s a cliché to overindulge in unhealthy-but-tasty foods during the holidays and then vow to eat better after the New Year starts. But guess what? Today’s square between Jupiter in Scorpio and Ceres in Leo picks up on this theme. While Jupiter in Scorpio could indicate a continuance of overindulging in secret, Ceres in Leo seems to push for heart-healthy habits — physically and emotionally. If you can tap into that, you may be able to harness the power of Scorpio to flush out toxins and get metaphorical (and literal) clear water moving again. The Capricorn Sun’s sextile to Neptune in Pisces should help you to harness your inner idealism to your outer drive for a good start on any resolutions for 2018. It also supports deep meditation (especially regarding your sense of purpose), if the holiday weekend was too busy for you to tap in that way.
