If Your Birthday is Jan. 6
(The Day of Substantiation) | Capricorn Birthday Reading | All Other Signs
Your prospects for improving your professional income are better than ever, though this is a claim you must make for yourself. There are two elements involved. One is having a goal you might think is out of reach. The second is doing what you actually care about, and doing it well. Know the ways your talent benefits others, and work that angle.
|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
With Mercury in Sagittarius trine Uranus in Aries, stay open to sudden, unexpected ideas. Accompanying astrology — namely the Mars-Jupiter conjunction in Scorpio, which is making additional aspects — is just ready and waiting for you to act on your brainstorms. Remember: goals and desires are not achieved simply by thinking about them. You have to do your part; and right now, there’s some real traction you can use to your advantage if you’re willing to get busy.
