Capricorn Horoscope (December 22 - January 19)
Your ruling planet is Saturn.
This is an interesting and potentially quite rewarding period for you, Capricorn. The belief systems that provide the underpinning for your thoughts and feelings are undergoing revision right now, and it can be both wonderful and strange. As your values and finances become subject to enormous pressures, you may be forced to yield ground or at least come to greater consciousness regarding your situation. You are breaking out of self-imposed limitation at the very same time that you honor your steadfast adherence to the rules of the game as you have come to know them. This partakes of paradox, but then, accepting paradox is one of the secrets of life.
As the month begins you find yourself in the midst of change. This is a big year for you, with Pluto now in your sign, and you will no doubt be feeling thrust of his transformative power. It is important to note that this is your power, your ability to make changes that are in your own best interest, and which may have been left on the back burner for many years until the time was right. As you settle into the first week of the month, the Solar Eclipse and New Moon of Wednesday, February 6th, marks a special period of making these life changes more consciously available and more fully manifest. Since this month is also coincident with the Mercury retrograde, it is better to contemplate actions rather than jump into new plans and departures from your general course of action. Certainly, some portion of your activities will be in motion from last month and these are the ones to go ahead with right now. Totally new ideas are best left to wait until after the New Moon of early March. This month also represents an important period of consolidation of your ideas from last summer that may have been slowly working their way through your various levels of resistance to emerge now. This is a delicate time of balancing the old with the new, the practical with the wild and hair-brained, and you do well to examine every side of the situation before plunging into action. The First Quarter Moon that comes along in the middle of the following week potentially represents a time of trial, when it may be difficult to get to the bigger picture, although you must try. It helps to realize that every challenge is a test and a chance to overcome. Partnership with others is an important component of your own success right now. The Full Moon and Lunar Eclipse takes place on Wednesday, February 20th, and represents to some extent the light at the end of the tunnel, and a time when you will be communicating more fully with those around you. Throughout the month you are being given clues that taken all together spell an entirely new and better accommodation to the various factors in your life which after all must work together if your life is to work: the spiritual as well as the mundane, the thoughtful as well a the action-oriented.
