Happy Birthday Capricorn! Above all else in life this Saturn-ruled sign wants power. They want the money, the influence and the status that power can bring to the individual. Because of their strong desire for power Capricorns are willing to forego some of the nonsense and keep their goals in mind.
The Capricorn is practical, disciplined and responsible and willing to work hard to get where he or she wants to go.
This sign gets along best with the Virgo, who loves to work, and the Taurus, who is patient and willing to work hard to get the material that money can buy.
The Capricorn does not have a strong sense of humor like a Gemini or Leo. This Saturn-ruled sign is not really interested in just having fun; they like the serious side of life. The late President Richard Nixon was a fine example of the serious, willing to do anything to get the power person. He did not exhibit a sense of humor, nor did he appear jolly. Nixon was born on January 9, 1913.
A typical Capricorn works hard, laughs little and usually wins the game.
People born this week: Susan Lucci, December 23, 1948; Ricky Martin, December 24, 1971; Sissy Spacek, December 25, 1949; Phil Spector, December 26, 1940; Cokie Roberts, December 27, 1943; Denzel Washington, December 28, 1954; Jude Law, December 29, 1972; Tiger Woods, January 20, 1975; Val Kilmer, December 31, 1959.
A Merry Christmas and a happy 2012. How fast the time flies when you are busy watching the stars. Amazing!
Winter Solstice on Thursday of this week signals the shortest day of the year and it is also the day the sun enters Capricorn. The new moon is on Saturday, the day before Christmas. The best day of the year, aside from Sunday and according to the heavens is will be Wednesday, December 28 when the moon trines Saturn in the early morning giving the day a warm and generous feeling. So start planning your Saturday night celebration. See you next year.
Aries (March 21 to April 20) Things may not be as they appear, so it might be wise to slow down and think before you jump into a new scheme. In that way you can avoid some of the pitfalls you often experience in your projects. Your new motto might be “Slow down and check it out” before you let someone take over any business or personal deals in 2012. In that way you can see life at a better clip.
Taurus (April 21 to May 20) Jupiter is still in Taurus, so if you are not digging in and having some fun you are on the wrong road. Back up somewhere in your life and take it easy. This is a good period and if you don’t see it or feel it then stop, look and listen. You are moving along too fast and missing the best of your life.
Gemini (May 21 to June 20) Your life lesson is right before your eyes. Any relationship giving you any kind of problem should be reviewed before you ring in 2012. After all, you should not bring yesterday’s stress into tomorrow’s fun and games. You have done that much too often in the past and now it is time to make a change. One resolution in line with this would be do not participate in arguments.
Cancer (June 21 to July 20) If you have been turning the other way when coworkers or family have been unfair to you, try keeping it up since you can’t win using your old routine. You need to change your ways. And if you recognize that fact you are well on your way to a glorious 2012. Otherwise, it will just be another year of nonsense since Saturn is not moving fast. The lesson here is to let go of the old ways.
Leo (July 21 to August 20) If you are interested in meeting someone new all you need to do is get out where the action happens to be. Next Saturday night is a perfect time and place. So dress up and act out your dreams and you will get yourself all set up for a new life in 2012. Don’t kid yourself – all you need to do is make some smart moves and life will blossom.
Virgo (August 21 to September 20) If you have ignored a lover or been too busy to pay attention to a good pal you will hear about it this week. So get out there and remember who you really are interested in and want in your life. It is so simple; sometimes we don’t realize what it is we need to do to turn our life around. Your job is making yourself available for fun.
Libra (September 21 to October 20) Sometimes it is proper to speak your mind, but it would be unwise to be anything but diplomatic this week. Work at keeping your friends happy and guiding them to a brighter tomorrow. You are about to meet some new pals who will help change your attitude and give you a new more sophisticated outlook on your life.
Scorpio (October 21 to November 20) It is a good time to get out on the town and really indulge yourself by getting to know some new pals who have the power to help you get exactly where you would like to go. In the meantime, work to make improvements wherever you might be. And make sure you don’t get caught up in someone else’s problems. Stay clear of chaos, whether it is real or just nonsense. .
Sagittarius (November 21 to December 20) This is a good week to remember that things are not always what they seem. Sometimes when we take life personally and feel everything is aimed at us we end up on the wrong side of an argument. So just watch out or you will find yourself on the outside looking in.
Capricorn (December 21 to January 20) With Mars making good aspects to your sun it might be wise to really understand what it is you want and then make some schemes to get it. It is a reasonable time to expect the very best and also make some money. Try looking the other way when you hear things you don’t like. It really doesn’t involve you this week.
Aquarius (January 21 to February 20) The best gift you can give yourself is one of freedom from any heavy relationship. Stay in your own space this week and decide what it is you really want to do in 2012. Once you have made a decision, then get started to make it happen. You could really make some headway and move forward both at home and work.‘
Pisces (February 21 to March 20) Any work you are now doing outside of the usual will pay off in the near future. An old pal could really need some sound advice. You should take the time to pull things together and make the time to offer some help or you will be wondering and worrying for no reason at all. Get ready for a destiny-filled year.
