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 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!

Hiding just won't cut it right now, Capricorn. 'Cinderella'  Val Prinsep {{PD}}

Hiding just won’t cut it right now, Capricorn. ‘Cinderella’ Val Prinsep {{PD}}

Is shyness a perpetual problem for you, dear Capricorn, or are you just experiencing a severe bout right now? In either case, you may feel that hiding in a box is your only option; and I can see why. You are being plagued (haunted?) possibly at a mostly subliminal level, by some serious matters that you have so far successfully ignored, or have even denied exist. Your natural tendency is to withdraw from these issues, which may involve vital details of material matters, your own or others’ rage, reactions to criticism, and ‘dividing the spoils’, which may not have gone as it should/ was planned; now you need to deal with these, in order to allow for gestation time involving a highly creative period you will shortly enter–not clearing up what’s haunting you means you will have energy and attention diverted to holding off awareness or putting out related fires, when it really should go to cooking a major creative or imagination-fueled thing that only you can offer the world. The choice is clear. Happy Birthday, Cappy, and good luck!

Bruno Liljefors – Winter Hare 1928 {{PD}}

I’ve noticed a lot of people today sounding as if they’re operating in crisis mode, but also clearly in denial about the level of stress they’re carrying; maybe this will help.

26 December we are hyper-aware of our current life direction and the repercussions of our choices, and that may have an odd effect: we could try to outsmart the Universe (by anticipating where our actions might lead) and so end up landing in uniquely disempowering circumstances. What we imagine occurring in financial or relationship sectors could be misleading, and send us in the wrong direction. We need to tap creative powers and apply them to our surroundings, with an eye to where we want to find ourselves in the future; that will turn our efforts in a positive direction and help us avoid moves where we end up doing nothing so much as outsmarting ourselves. (Perfecting today: Mars opposed Juno, Venus semi-square Neptune, Mercury square the Nodal axis, which catches Saturn at the midpoint of NN-Merc, Earth trine Neptune)

It may be an incredibly active year for you, dear Capricorn, one of major excitement and change, but it may feel as if it’s all happening on a stage, and you’re just watching, at least at first; you may be too busy putting out fires generated by issues ignored or denied, or even by the consequences of your own temper, to step out onto that stage. Here are some pointers to help you handle both your own ‘performance’ and what may come at you: Be careful with your words–reverence and extra attention in communication and agreements is important; use your best judgment in relationships and finances–there’s no room to spare at this point; and be prepared for actions and choices to feel ‘fated’–because they will lead to your future. Be prepared for some tough going that should give way to a widening of horizons and the ability to learn just what it was all for. Happy Birthday, Capricorn, and good luck!

William Orpen ‘The Eastern Gown’ 1906 {{PD}}

23 December we may face some serious concerns over how much relationships or the financial situation do or do not support our empowerment, and smart money says we take the long view, considering how this may end up affecting our future course. At least, that will be the approach of those who are listening for the Cosmic undercurrent; everyone else may treat those things we find upsetting us or drawing our attention as much less meaningful than we know them to be. The good thing is you’ll easily see who’s taking a deeper approach, and so be able to identify the kind of communication that may be most effective, either speaking ‘on the surface’ or looking beyond the obvious, depending on who’s in front of you. In any case, respect for others’ communications, reasoning processes, and mental perceptions is necessary, because there just won’t be any room to question or ridicule what others propose—everyone will need to be able to retain a sense of dignity in interaction—it’s best kept in mind that identities are fragile at this time. One thing you can count on: people will be telling you what they care about, even if the message is sent indirectly. (Venus quincunx Juno and square the Nodal axis, Mercury conjunct Vesta, Sun sesquiquadrate Juno, Saturn enters Sagittarius)

Today’s image is a baby. Close your eyes for a moment and imagine holding one, imagine the clean, ‘new baby’ smell of one, recall how incredibly soft they are. Have a completely human moment, communing with that very distinctive way we all begin our journey. There, doesn’t that feel better?

Visits by winged sprites are unlikely, Cappy, but you never know. Maria d'Harcourt et d'Aumale, wife of Reinald IV, Duke of Guelders and Jülich, in a houppelande, fol 19 of the Breviary of Marie de Gueldres c1415 {{PD}}

Visits by winged sprites are unlikely, Cappy, but you never know. Maria d’Harcourt et d’Aumale, wife of Reinald IV, Duke of Guelders and Jülich, in a houppelande, fol 19 of the Breviary of Marie de Gueldres c1415 {{PD}}

Dear Capricorn, you’ve got a fated year ahead of you–and by fated, I mean one that you have constructed out of choices and have been rolling inexorably toward for a long, long time. Don’t worry, it’s all of your own making, and will happen without conscious attention from you–and if you find that scary, that fear is only a suggestion that you re-consider some of your choices and methods. The banner headline for you this year, and the one that will grab your attention through to your next birthday, concerns the communication of your emotions and emotional perceptions; feelings, along with a strong desire to take action that will ‘fix’ what needs reform and that will allow for true freedom and/ or Self-expression, will likely be the centerpiece for the next 12 months. Concurrent with this, expect your reality to change–and know that will be a direct reflection of what you’ve built. Happy Birthday, Capricorn, and good luck!

The year’s almost up–and so is your chance to subscribe to ECLIPSE and receive not just the Weekly and Daily forecasts, articles, and more, but also a free copy of my latest book, on Vesta, as soon as it’s published. Thanks!
