Capricorn Horoscope (December 22 - January 19)
Your ruling planet is Saturn.
This is a powerful month for you, Capricorn, in the midst of a powerful year. As you find yourself reaching for the gold ring that comes from deep inside yourself, some level of new information that is coming your way right now will likely rock your world. This is not necessarily a bad thing as you could be in need of a shakeup. Active partners in your life are also claiming a piece of your turf and you find yourself reaching for a point of balance. Everything is truly all right. It's a big bold beautiful world out there and it's waiting for you to notice. You only have to turn your head slightly to see it.
As the month begins, you are forging new territory within your mind and heart. New conceptual frontiers are awaiting you in the course of this month's important cycle, and might even take the form of physical travel or else of the armchair variety. This is a climactic period of time in which you will likely come to terms with conditions and perceptions that have been building up for some time now. The Full Moon that comes along on Friday, September 4th, begins an intense two-to-three week period that will put you in a different mode operation by the time the month is over. Mental conception leads the way for the reality train to follow. You are facing others in a new light at this time, brought on in part by amazing information that has been subtle or perhaps more obvious for several weeks now, but which reaches new heights of directness over this timeframe. Mercury retrogrades two days later, in the late evening of Sunday, September 6th, and everything that you do out in the world becomes called into question, as you make a move to a more internal and introspective process. You are seeking answers to the riddle of your life right now and perhaps even finding them. Your process increases in intensity with the Last Quarter Moon of Friday, September 11th, which has been traditionally referred to as a "crisis of consciousness" and when Pluto also stations powerfully in your sign. Your awareness is blossoming over this time period, no doubt about it, and to a greater or a lesser extent depending on how open you are to receiving the wisdom flowing out to you from the universe of possibility deep inside. This is a time of increased tension and of breaking into new territory versus staying with old tried and true methods and patterns of existence that have served you well for so long. This is naturally a difficult series of choices to make, but the recommendation at this time is that you not completely abandon previous foundations, especially in light of the Mercury retrograde period which is better for reflection and research into possible new pathways than for actually taking them. This lasts through to the end of the month, and beyond; to mid-October when you take the two weeks of the retrograde shadow into account. The New Moon of Friday, September 18th, signals a time when nothing is left unaltered and when everything somehow also stays the same. You are mediating between perceived polarities at this important juncture and for the remainder of the month. The First Quarter Moon of the 25th will be a crucial passage, when it will become much clearer what portion of what you are attempting is truly viable. You are striving to find a middle ground that takes multiple viewpoints into account, allowing the fresh concept to have sway without abandoning prior principles. Your task over these final two weeks is to work out how this concretely manifests in your own particular situation.
