CAPRICORN

De­cem­ber21 – Jan­uary 19

Friday - - Society -

As a Capricorn and some­body who is both an earth sign and who is ruled by the planet of fo­cus, Saturn, you have an in­stinc­tive un­der­stand­ing of the need to be or­gan­ised... the need to plan.

While many Capri­corns work hard in rather straight­for­ward po­si­tions or jobs, even those whose lives are more on the fringe of life, those who are per­form­ers, ac­tors and artists, or who are at home still have an aware­ness of the need to be or­gan­ised at the core of their ex­is­tence. How­ever, dur­ing 2013 you’ve re­alised that you can­not al­ways do that, what with cir­cum­stances chang­ing and in many sit­u­a­tions you be­ing de­pen­dent on the de­ci­sions of oth­ers.

Not much is go­ing to change this year, but the sil­ver lin­ing is that such chal­lenges will help you look at is­sues from a new per­spec­tive and help you grow in con­fi­dence.

Dur­ing 2013, Jupiter, the planet that’s all about growth, de­vel­op­ment and good for­tune, bril­liantly as­pected your ruler, Saturn, twice, and it does so again in late May, 2014.

This sug­gests that sud­den changes, of­ten be­cause of the in­flu­ence of cir­cum­stances in the lives of oth­ers or un­ex­pected de­vel­op­ments, put you in a po­si­tion to do some­thing in a new way. Your re­ac­tion will have de­pended on your at­ti­tude to­wards change in that par­tic­u­lar area of your life. But there’s a trick to mak­ing the best of this – re­sist the temp­ta­tion to min­imise those changes.

Again, as a Capricorn, once you’ve set a goal, you tend to fo­cus on and stick with it.

Yet, dur­ing 2014 you’ll find that if you can bal­ance that fo­cus with a will­ing­ness to be flex­i­ble – to go with the flow – life will be­come mag­i­cal. You’ll meet amaz­ing peo­ple and you’ll dis­cover things you wouldn’t oth­er­wise have.

This is also about bal­anc­ing your need to plan and to as­pire to achieve with a will­ing­ness to deal with what­ever, and who­ever, you en­counter.

It’s also worth bear­ing in mind that with Uranus, the planet of in­no­va­tion, chal­leng­ing Pluto, the planet of con­trol – which is po­si­tioned in your sign in late Novem­ber of 2013, and in both April and De­cem­ber of 2014 – big changes in your life could mean re­think­ing ex­ist­ing ar­range­ments and plans that had seemed un­likely to al­ter.

Here, again, you might feel that they are dis­rup­tive. But re­mem­ber th­ese are chal­lenges that in­spire you to look at life in a new way.

You’ve al­ways thought of life as some­thing to be lived well and pre­cisely. Essen­tially, you set goals, you work hard to achieve them, you en­joy those achieve­ments and then you go on to the next set of goals.

And with Mars po­si­tioned in the cru­cial mid­heaven an­gle of your chart un­til the mid­dle of 2014, those goals will re­main im­por­tant.

Yet, at the same time, there’s a theme of bal­ance, and that bal­ance has to do with al­low­ing your­self to be in­spired by other ac­tiv­i­ties, not just the prac­ti­cal goals that are so im­por­tant to you, as a Capricorn, but those ac­tiv­i­ties and, per­haps, even in­di­vid­u­als who in­spire you.

With Nep­tune, which is the planet of vi­sion, po­si­tioned in the part of your chart that has to do with your point of view, it’s time to throw a lit­tle ex­plo­ration of new ideas, and per­haps even a lit­tle phi­los­o­phy into the mix.

This year it’s time to blend that Capricorn fo­cus with ac­tiv­i­ties and pur­suits that lift your spir­its, make you re­flect on life, touch your heart in some way and bal­ance your fo­cus on achieve­ment. Do this and 2014 will be a year to re­mem­ber.
