Capricorn Horoscope (December 22 - January 19)
Your ruling planet is Saturn.
This is an intense time for you, Capricorn. You are intent on forging a different life path, and making great progress, as you find surprising resilience within yourself and begin to take intuition more seriously as a simple fact of life. What stops you might be only that you are afraid of losing what you already have. The caterpillar knows loss but it also eventually knows gain; and yet what comes as gain is of a very different kind. The strange thing is that you fear the surprise enhancement even more than the disappearance of your current possessions. New information comes your way this month that will make it easier to accept both the gains and the losses that are inherent factors of living in a changing world.
As the month begins, you are riding the wave from the powerful New Moon and Solar Eclipse from the 20th of last month. You are very present in real-world activities, but with a twist, in that you are also more aware than perhaps ever before of the spiritual implications implicit in what you do in the world and in how you make your mark there. The area of your solar chart highlighted by the eclipse was referred to by seminal astrologer Dane Rudhyar the sector of the discipleship to your higher Self. The eclipse was also making a subtle and essentially spiritual connection to Saturn, your ruler, located in your sector of career and professional life. This underlines the way that career pursuits represent a changing landscape for you. You have been intent for many months now on public recognition, as that relates to career objectives, and proceeding with vitality to put yourself out there. Lately you find that a deep-seated change in what you are up to involves a great deal of internal questioning and growth and has also its application in finding a better reason for what you do out in the world than money or accolades, even though they perhaps used to be all that you wanted. Your personal evolution has reached a stage where it is no longer enough, the search for recognition in the eyes of the world that has been going so well lately. This is difficult to digest and might lead you to question everything, including the basic beneficence of the universe in taking you to this point. One of the lessons of this time period for you is that you trust that you are on the right track, even when it might seem to be the wrong one. With the Full Moon and Lunar Eclipse of Monday, June 4th, you are finding a full flowering of the point of view that includes the idea of service to the larger collective as a fundamental principle in everything that you say and do. This is the higher purpose of your sign: becoming a significant cog in the machinery of change. The trick is to see the place that the society is headed toward, and that you support, and to choose to head that way yourself. With Pluto transforming your identity sector and with the destabilizing factor of Uranus in your sector of home environment, this has been a tricky time. You might just have to surrender to the process and let cosmic currents carry you, as you have been discovering over the past week or so. This is a potentially life-changing juncture represented by these two eclipses and the time between; a reconciliation between warring factions within your personality posing the question of whether to go all out for your work or to stay more private. You are presented with a kind of truce right now, and yet in another way also plunged into a thorough-going reworking of your priorities, based on new vision. The Last Quarter Moon of the following week, taking place on Monday, June 11th, is traditionally a time of mulling over where you have been during the weeks of the cycle that is concluding. The second New Moon in the sign of Gemini follows a week later, on Tuesday the 19th, and you are likely to find yourself further down the path of discovering important mission for yourself out of your work in the world, and through the day-to-day realities of being available to it. While yet in many ways remaining ordinary, your work nonetheless becomes a practice of morphing into something that you can actually believe in. You will find that the last week of the month, with the First Quarter Moon of Tuesday, June 26th, taking place in your career sector, and with the station of its ruler Venus, will represent an even greater and more intense shift in the energy that you have for your real-world presence, and its implications for your transforming Self.
