Don't be so intent on the power situation that you forget there's a big wide world out there. Carl Spitzweg - Der Naturforscher - c1880 {{PD}}

Don’t be so intent on the power situation that you forget there’s a big wide world out there. Carl Spitzweg – Der Naturforscher – c1880 {{PD}}

You may be looking at yourself through a microscope this coming Solar year, dear Capricorn, inspecting the power situation and the effect you are having on your world–and how others’ power is affecting you–and the problem may be that you rarely look up from your myopic view of things. Too much concern over hurt, trying to even the playing field, and over your ability to change things (and especially to be taken seriously by those in your sphere) may consume you–and that’s both necessary (as a Soul expression) and destructive (in the way you may be tempted to do little else). The difficulty may lie in the way you will regard holding absolute power in any situation as the only truly effective way to be; if you can see that there are many ways to approach an issue, and that sometimes the quieter or more passive form may actually create more change than does an active approach, you might have a chance of actually creating an atmosphere were your actions truly matter, and where others give you a great deal of respect for your accomplishments–so do that, consider every option, even the ones you judge to be ineffective, before you make a move, and consider that making a positive impression on others may go a lot farther than trying to impress them through might or absolutism. Happy Birthday, Cappy, and good luck!

You may be feeling rebellious, spontaneous, and a desire to express your originality and uniqueness, dear Capricorn–and it’s all in service to getting a handle on your own personal power. That’s not a bad thing at all; it’s your totally human need to feel you are in control of your life, and able to affect the course it takes–and to some degree this coming Solar year, through to your next birthday, you will do spectacularly at it, gaining tremendously in areas you value. Two other things are also likely to come out of this period, other than the expected control and gains: you will be surprised at how much really is under your control, and even more surprised at just what is not; and you will get rid of the false conception that those with power act erratically and on a whim as a matter of course. This latter will may be a case of you learning ‘the hard way’ that power and having a say-so requires much more Self-control and discipline than you every imagined–and it will be your choice whether you accept that invitation to have a greater impact, or whether you will be content with the progress you will have already made. Happy Birthday, Cappy, and good luck!

Will you spend this coming year on wheels, dear Capricorn, or is that just my imagination? It seems like you’ll be on the move, roller-coastering or roller-blading, or at least so much in motion, literally and figuratively, that you may not see a moments peace. If you’re a more energetic Cappy, you may enjoy it, but inevitably there will come a point when there’s too much chaos, and too many others acting in unpredictable ways, for you to be comfortable–and that’s when you have to ask whether you’re projecting, and if the unpredictable, undependable, unreliable one isn’t really you. You have the tendency to enjoy stirring things up, and then suddenly deciding that everyone else needs to sit down and listen; it turns out this year, through to your next birthday, you may get a dose of your own medicine. That’s not a bad thing; it’s actually designed to get you out of a rut that you’ve convinced yourself is a super-highway. You’ll be required to set aside the coaster or blades and step into a Ferrari, and the bonus is you’ll find out what traveling at high speed really is. Happy Birthday, Cappy, hold on tight, and good luck!

This is the final day to order ECLIPSE–subscription closes at midnight Pacific time.

'Across Mounts Bay' Elizabeth Forbes {{PD}}

‘Across Mounts Bay’ Elizabeth Forbes {{PD}}

Your biggest challenge this coming Solar year, through to your next birthday, dear Capricorn, may be in finding some kind of balance between being unique and being accepted by the group. You may be strongly inclined to go your own way, to act as much on impulse as possible, to invent and innovate in a way that puts you way ahead of your peers, to indulge every little whim of the Self–and yet, you’ll quickly find that much of this at all leads to isolation, rejection based in being seen as erratic, and jeopardizes your standing within the group. What’s a goat, just trying to be the best goat possible, to do? In your case, you need to sort through those impulses to separate the true-to-the-Soul creative choices from those that are simply rebellions against the standards and constraints of others. At this time it’s very important you feel free; and it’s just as important that you find a way to be completely yourself, completely unique, and yet still play a vital part in group efforts and the social circle. Part of what you may have been missing is that a positive manifestation of your most unique qualities and talents needs to take place where others can see it, so alienating your audience is the last thing you should do–and if others are allowed to feel a part of your most original expressions, they’ll support just about anything you propose. That sounds good, doesn’t it? Happy Birthday, Cappy, and good luck!

Order ECLIPSE before midnight Pacific time 1 January 2015 (end of day) in order to get it all, including a FREE copy of my next book!

William Merritt Chase ‘Making Her Toilet’ 1889 {{PD}}

It looks like you may be feeling unloved this coming Solar year, through to your next birthday, dear Capricorn, and may compensate with physical pleasures and material goods. Now, please notice, I didn’t say you were unlovable–no no no–I said you will be feeling unloved, but that’s your fault–yes it is! Here’s why: when we turn our vision toward ourselves and fix on something we believe we don’t have, we are shut off from the rest of the world–in this case, we can’t feel, see, or experience that we are loved by others. That means your job this year, Cappy, should you choose to accept it, is to give up the idea that you can see what you’re receiving from those around you by looking at yourself. Only by being willing to look around you, see, and acknowledge the bounty others are offering (including some excellent empowerment options for you, possibly ones that will change or boost your status) will you be able to make the most of your upcoming year. Happy Birthday, Capricorn, and good luck!

We’re in the final two days to sign up for ECLIPSE and receive my new book free–check it out here–

Dear Capricorn, do you feel like your support system as been dismantled, and that all the wisdom you’ve acquired through the years is now somehow invalid? Don’t worry, this is much less about things falling apart through incompetence or neglect (meaning, it’s not your fault) and much more about the kind of boundaries and structures that need to fall away so that deep, real, permanent, and profound change can take place in your life. This change is likely to involve major healing of wounds, and/ or the discovery of unique skills, things you may have suspected you could be good at, or things you never knew you had the facility for, but are gifted with. The time you’ll spend this Solar year, on the way toward your next birthday, will mostly be spent divesting yourself (willingly or not) of things that won’t work for you anymore, once change takes hold; just trust that your Higher Self is guiding things, and that what’s coming will re-make your life in a positive and profound way. Happy Birthday, Cappy, and good luck!

The final two days to sign up for ECLIPSE are upon us–order today or tomorrow, 1 January 2015, and get it all, including my new book on Vesta when it’s published!

Homer Dodge Martin – The Iron Mine, Port Henry, New York 1862 {{PD}}

Emotions may be at odds with your goals and choices this coming year, dear Capricorn, through to your next birthday; you may feel pulled in opposing directions consistently, and the feeling nature has no way to deal with the pressure except to take its own unique course. Being a personal trailblazer may be something you must do periodically throughout life, and right now is one of those times. A sort of adventure will be yours this coming year, and you will have a tremendous amount of power and you’ll know exactly how to use it–the smart people around you will ally with you and support your cause, you’re that formidable–but all that ability will remain discretely tucked away beneath an unassuming exterior you’ve created–and you may end up even fooling yourself about the extent of your abilities, believing you’re more modest and less powerful than you really are. It’s a point in time when you can make leaps of progress toward your goals, discover new ones along the way, and get a lot of what you want–if you’ll only embrace your assertive, masterful Self, rather than demur and let others go (and get) first. Stake your claim, Cappy! Happy Birthday and good luck!

Consciously or unconsciously, dear Capricorn, you seem to be in the midst of creating–how’s it going? The impulse is strong and clear, almost a case of visualize it and it appears–and shortly it will be time to present your efforts publicly, to the social circle, or to the expanded world such efforts will afford you–so really, the question is, are you ready for that exposure? You’ve been free to make what you will, in something of a genius way drawing from the past and fashioning empowering situations that shape the future; soon, though, your creation will be under scrutiny, as all creations must be at some point, and the pressure of having eyes on that aren’t your own is building. You look at it with love (or at least the loyalty Dr. Frankenstein showed his creation), while others will definitely be more critical–and you need to be ready for that. It’s time, then, to begin shaping your creation to meet an audience–not altering it so much as smoothing out the rough edges and insuring your vision is all of a piece. With your usual thoroughness, Capricorn, you have nothing to worry about. Happy Birthday, and good luck!

To say this will be a creative year for you, dear Capricorn, is an understatement; the coming 12 months, through to your next birthday, may be seminal in terms of bringing what the Soul dreams into reality. Of course, that takes a different form for each individual born on this date, but you can find some hints: matters of the Houses where natal Neptune, natal Sun, and transiting Neptune all sit will figure in; look for biggest results keyed to the House where your natal Earth is posited (Earth is found directly opposite the Sun in all charts); and watch the role of the emotions in making these dreams come true–it will play a major part in motivating and inspiring you. Visualization is your friend; so is being imaginative during tasks and events you don’t usually consider creative ones. One thing you must have to make this work: a strong home front, mate relationship, and/ or dedication to what matters to you–one or more of these will be your source of power. Happy Birthday, Cappy, and good luck!

You may feel a little like your Cardinal compadre Libra during the early part of this coming year, Cappy, as you deal with dual matters, each of which wants your attention. Pieter de Hooch {{PD}}

You may be caught, dear Capricorn, between handling those matters you thought you could ignore, but which you’ve seen just won’t go away, and with losing yourself in some new creative endeavor (or in some matter of the natal House containing or with Pisces on the cusp). Both are pulling the spirit; without attending to each side of the equation, though, you won’t make any headway with either. That means this coming Solar year, through to your next birthday, you’ll be managing a balancing act of sorts, at least until you clear up those ignored issues–once those are handled, full energy can go to that creative matter–and that could become a signature expression of who you are. I know it’s not easy sharing a birthday with one of the most famous individuals to have ever existed, but I hope you’ll go out of your way to celebrate the beginning of your personal ‘new year’–don’t downplay the importance of your Solar Return just because it happens to coincide with ‘that day’–this year your rational intellect is especially strong, and you can draw a distinct mental line between the social hoopla and this marker of your own personal evolution that will help make this day more personally special for you each year, forever after. Happy Birthday, Capricorn, and good luck!
