Capricorn Horoscope (December 22 - January 19)
Your ruling planet is Saturn.
Welcome to the inner whirlpool, Capricorn, for you are now surely in the midst of it; not actually going down but admitting yourself into another dimension. You are engaged in an important process of revisioning everything that you value, your very basis for security, and how you see the world around you. Communication is key, even though your words might seem a bit unfocused right now. The ideals that you share to others around you are yet by this means clarified. A thorough-going transformation needs to spread further, to your head as well as to your heart, and you might be suspending mental operations for a while in order to reorganize. Out the other side, your sense of who you are at base comes back to you, and with added dividends.
As the month begins, you are bent of networking and communicative outreach but there could seem to be obstacles and uncertainties separating you from your intended desire. This month is a strange time when what is real can feel like illusion and what is magical and unreal can seem like reality itself. To get entirely with the program means accommodating yourself to paradox, and it is difficult for a soul of practicality such as you to even begin to orient yourself in this way; that is, to subscribe to a system with a palpable lack of orientation. The mystical side of life on planet earth is perfectly real and underlies everything that you see and do, but it is extremely difficult to get a handle on. This month, with several planets retrograde including your ruler, Saturn, and with Neptune and Uranus highlighted in your sectors of communication and familial concerns, is the perfect time to become more familiar with this unseeable world that surrounds and informs the day-to-day world of your senses. The magical mystery tour bus is stopping at your doorway with the sign on the side that reads “get to know your own inner world!” With the Full Moon that comes along in the second week of the month, taking place on Thursday, March 8th, you might be making a form of peace with this idea. A balance point can be reached whereby you go about your everyday concerns with a strong attitude toward the practical, and yet still take a mystical viewpoint into account as well. Your philosophy is somehow able to be expanded to allow holding both visions simultaneously. Your communication and your creative output is fairly sizzling during this mid-month period and reflects this idea. By the time of the Last Quarter Moon of Wednesday, March 14th, you are making quite a stand for your own unique identity in this way, and rethinking everything that you thought you knew up to now. Mercury is now retrograde, for the next five weeks or more, when you count the period of the retrograde shadow, that is the time during which it is catching up to its original station point in early Aries. Your sense of who you are at the core is a changing landscape over these many weeks and months now, and this ongoing and vital transformation is being given a huge boost in this March timeframe. Your worldview is a changing now as well, and this basic instability is difficult to accommodate to, so that you are in a natural cycle of the reexamination of all that has gone on in the previous three weeks of this lunar cycle. You win when you begin to love change and reject stability as illusion, so that nothing whatsoever disappoints you, but this is the advanced stage of the learning process that you find yourself in the midst of. With the New Moon of Thursday, March 22nd, you are making a fresh start on that goal and potentially even succeeding at it. Home and family is your strong focus now, but with equally the idea of being comfortable with the changing tides surging through this area of your life and transpiring within your inner world also.
