January Sun Sign Profile: Capricorn (December 22-January 19)

 

Oh Capricorn, so misunderstood! They have a nasty reputation for being workaholics, control freaks, and skinflints.  They like wearing black. Better safe than sorry is a popular Goat-Fish mantra. These Winter babies are serious, worrisome, opportunistic, materialist, and persistent. Sounds like a barrel of laughs, right? But you know what? They have a lot of wonderful traits, too. They can be extremely responsible, loyal, deep, and self-sacrificing. If a Cap wants to achieve something, they go all the way, no matter how long it takes. The problem is, they expect so much from themselves, and they are so hard on themselves, others often feel Capricorn is judging them or holding them to the same standards. And it might be true, but they are usually way too busy climbing their own mountains and giving themselves a hard time to care that much about other people’s short-comings. But for all of their fears and insecurities, the one word that sums up Capricorn the best is capable.

 

Capricorn is an Earth Sign which makes them physical, productive, and “down to earth” in their approach. If they are not succumbing to Saturnian depression, which can be an issue, they are busier than bees. Serious, yes, but they are often quite witty and known for their dry, sarcastic humor. If you can get them to let loose and let their hair down, you’ll find most Capricorns are very sexual and sensual creatures. They tend to show their love by doing things for people, which can sometimes be construed as “controlling.”

 

They make better bosses than employees because they don’t take orders and like to give them. They do well in fields that require hunkering down and mastering difficulty. Executive ability, they have it in spades. But here’s a little secret. As rock-solid as they seem, many Capricorns long for someone to lean on.

 

Capricorn gets along with fellow Earth Signs Taurus and Virgo, but might lock horns with another Cap. They are often fascinated with the fiery strength of Aries and Leo, but control battles almost always ensue. Serious Goats can find overly optimistic Sagittarius annoying, and vice versa, I’m sure.  The intelligence of Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius intrigues Capricorn, but they find the changeable nature of Air confusing. Watery Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces add much needed emotional nurturing and in turn, benefit from Capricorns structure, stability, and devotion.

 

 

Femastrology Horoscopes for January 2013

 

For all the Sun Signs: If you are reading this article it means that the world didn’t end on 12/21/12. Hooray! 2013 will be another year of hefty problems to solve, personally, domestically, and globally, but January looks like a good month to start solving them. Jupiter aligns with Mars early in the month, which should give us all a jump start on our New Year’s Resolutions. Jupiter in Gemini will finally be out of retrograde at the end of the month!  Since Jupiter represents expansion, growth, transition, and opportunity, this is good news for everyone. If you know your birth chart, figure out which house Gemini rules, and you’ll know where to expect things to start moving forward.

 

Aries (March 21-April 19) Things are a little heavy now, as there will be some serious issues demanding your attention. Face your fears, muster up your courage, and commit to your goals. You will make some serious headway, but it won’t come easy.

 

Taurus (April 20-May 20) The Capricorn planets are sending you lots of productive energy, so take advantage of it. Travel associated with work could be super-successful. Things are looking good, but you are beginning to feel the “pressure” of Saturn in Scorpio opposing you. You know that saying “plan for a rainy day?” That’s a good mantra for you this year.

 

Gemini (May 21-June 20) Powerful forces are pushing you to end an old cycle. You are probably feeling more serious and emotional than usual. Tune into to what’s bugging you and make a pact with yourself to open up to some new things. By month’s end you will see a big shift in your energy.

 

Cancer (June 21-July 21) There is a ton of energy flowing in the relationship area of your chart. You will be having some intense conversations with loved ones, and on the job. This could be very stimulating, as long as conflicts of interest don’t arise. Diplomacy is your friend.

 

Leo (July 23-August 22) Time to get your life back into order. Business you haven’t attended to will really bog you down if you don’t tackle it early in the month. Your health could be sensitive now, so take extra good care of yourself. Slow down a little, too. You could be accident prone now.

 

Virgo (August 23-September 22) This could be a terrific month for you, with lots of earthy planets enhancing your energy level and productivity. The luck factor is with you. Creative energy is high, and love is in the air. Single Virgos, take note!

 

Libra (September 23-October 22) Situations on the home front could be throwing a wet blanket on your enthusiasm this month. The Prayer of Serenity could be of great value to you about now. Fix what you can fix, and avoid getting embroiled in other people’s messes, if possible.

 

Scorpio (October 23-Novemeber 21) If Saturn in Scorpio isn’t making you too blue, you’ll probably get a lot done this month. Important communications could lead to positive long-range improvements in your life. Don’t scatter your energy. Be specific about what you want to accomplish, and take it one step at a time.

 

Sagittarius (November 22-December 21) Venus has been cruising through your sign, so you’ve probably been feeling pretty good. But now, looks like it’s going to be all business. Get your finances straightened out. A realistic budget is your friend.

 

Capricorn (December 22-January 19) Well, Birthday Goat, you’ve got Capricorn energy in spades this month. So go get ‘em! This is a great time to make some BIG STEPS. No more procrastinating. The time is nigh. Make commitments, keep to a schedule, and forge ahead.

 

Aquarius (January 20-February 18) Mars in your sign is saying go! But Saturn in Scorpio might be making you feel like you’re driving with the emergency brake on. Relax a little, pay attention to your physical and mental health.

 

Pisces (February 19-March 20) This is a great time for you to connect with people of like mind. Make plans for your future, and for partnerships. You can enlist the aid of influential types. Use it to your advantage.
