“I don’t know if you can set out to be ‘a successful actor’. You can try to learn how to act, but it’s a long process. I’m still learning, and I’m 83 years old. I’ve been at this for, what, 60 years? Almost 60 years and most of that time has been spent trying to learn how to do it.”
— James Earl Jones

If Your Birthday is Jan. 17
(The Day of the Heavyweight) | Capricorn Birthday Reading | All Other Signs
Remember that you’re a passionate being. The “all business” reputation of Capricorn is a kind of ruse. You are driven by love, compassion and curiosity. These qualities are strengths and nothing less. They don’t preclude being a clever strategist or a shrewd planner. Connecting with your deeper motive makes you all the more worthy of trust.
|Current Capricorn Weekly Horoscope
This week, a rare alignment between Jupiter in Scorpio and Pluto in your birth sign presents some unusual opportunity for success. You’ve had a taste of this the past week to 10 days, and you may already be on a roll.
|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
With Venus in Capricorn square asteroid Pallas in Aries today, notice whether the theory and reality of your relationships are meshing. They might not be — but that’s no reason to panic. You can probably think of some ways to express how you feel, even if you do so conservatively, that will help you move closer to what you think is right for you. Having both Venus and Pallas in the last degree of their respective signs is a reminder that you don’t need to overcompensate or act hastily to get results. Venus then enters Aquarius overnight. Bear in mind that “righteous, ethical and correct” are not the same as “loving and understanding.” How are you expressing yourself along that spectrum?
