If Your Birthday is Jan. 18
(The Day of Childlike Fancy) | Capricorn Birthday Reading | All Other Signs
The way to purge yourself of any self-doubt or self-defeating thought patterns is to be aware of them, and then take noticing as an opportunity to choose something better. Your growth goal this year is understanding, appreciating and caring for yourself. You are the only person whose approval you need, and you’re the only one who can give it.
|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
If you need to check in with your emotions, particularly if you feel something you don’t quite understand, Mars trine Chiron suggests you dig deep. This may take some courage or some impetus, but the new understanding that could follow is likely to be worth the effort. It might seem tempting to hide or shut away a part of you that may at times feel inconvenient (to you, anyway); but when on a journey of growth or healing, it’s necessary to bring your whole self.
