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!
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!
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!
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!
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!
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!
