“‘I wish it need not have happened in my time,’ said Frodo.
‘So do I,’ said Gandalf, ‘and so do all who live to see such times. But that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us.'”
— J. R. R. Tolkien

If Your Birthday is Jan. 3
(The Day of Total Involvement) | Capricorn Birthday Reading | All Other Signs
A magnificent aspect between Venus and Neptune on your birthday is reminding you to put love first in your life. I don’t just mean romance. I mean demonstrating your affection and appreciation for everyone you value in your life, and even people you don’t know or encounter by chance. This is a path to happiness, connection and community.
|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
If Venus in Capricorn has you feeling at all like your love life’s wearing a corset, today might offer some liberation — at least, in your imagination. Venus is making a sextile to Neptune in Pisces. If you can surround yourself with beauty and art, it will likely feed your spirits. If this results only in pleasant daydreams, that alone could be quite beneficial. If you find your sensitivity calls for some active sharing, you can easily use this energy to help make a loved one feel better — though it might feel more appealing to do so in private. That said, the Moon ingressing Leo could indicate an unexpected post-holiday urge to socialize. Who did you not get a chance to connect with these last couple weeks?
