If Your Birthday is Jan. 4
(The Day of the Formulators) | Capricorn Birthday Reading | All Other Signs
The fewer secrets you keep, the happier you will be. The more you reveal about yourself, the happier you will feel. Take over this process; don’t wait to be ‘found out’. There’s just one definition of integrity, and that is honesty. You may be surprised to find that this strengthens your existing relationships, and helps you build a solid foundation to build on.
|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
Today’s aspects involve a couple of minor planets associated with holding space: Vesta and Chariklo. Just after midnight ET, Vesta makes a trine to Chiron; a few hours later, the Sun conjoins Chariklo (mythologically, the wife of Chiron). In what ways do you hold space in your life for others’ needs, and for your own? You might consider whether you feel there’s a healthy balance; that would also mean ensuring you’re expressing your whole self in all its complexity. Real devotion means being completely free. How else can you freely give?
