Capricorn: December 22nd - January 19th, is symbolized by the Goat. Picture that little mountain goat, always climbing to the top of the mountain -- that's Capricorn, ever ascending to the heights of their career. Capricorns are hard workers who feel a lifelong, inner need to impress others with their accomplishments and that healthy bank balance.
A Cardinal Earth Sign, Capricorns not only know how to get things going, they've got the perseverance necessary to get things done. They're not much for risk-taking, though; this sign only likes risks if they're the calculated type -- and sometimes calculated, recalculated and figured out a third time.
Capricorns work hard, and they like to see returns for their efforts (read: cold, hard cash). That's right: Capricorns have an eye for the bottom line. Will it cost more money than it's worth? Then Capricorn won't do it. On the other hand, this sign will take a low-paying position as a stepping stone to something higher-paid and more prestigious.
It's no wonder Capricorn is so conscientious and hardworking -- this sign is ruled by Saturn, the taskmaster planet that urges discipline in all endeavors. And while Capricorns can be something of a stick in the mud, insisting on adhering to the plan, the itinerary or the routine, they also make incredibly loyal and devoted friends.
Capricorn is an honest sign that lives by two mottoes: deceit doesn't pay, and it takes twice as long to do it wrong than to get it right the first time.
Capricorns make great stock analysts, loan officers and news anchors.
In fact, language seems to be somewhat stilted in general. It is not as if you're incapable of communicating a point, it's more as if the words you select don't come off quite as you planned.
What you consider as direct verbiage may be misconstrued as an accusation or command. Even a simple request that you regularly make may be heard as an aggressive order. This planetary period is not conducive to flowery expressive language, so creative writing and song lyrics aren't to be attempted just now.
Your tolerance for idle chatter is also at an all-time low. You would rather get straight to the point, which leaves you little patience for Grandma Betty's long-winded explanation of her quilting strategy.
Make sure to say 'please' and 'thank you' often, however. Avoid controversial subjects and certainly don't initiate new projects. Use this time to check on your financial health. Do home repairs, and reassess career goals you made five years ago. This is a fine time to take catch up on piles of old work.
After a period of playful indulgence, the New Moon in Capricorn helps you evaluate the priorities in your life. At some point in the midst of all of our human endeavors, we stop to consider our place in this world -- what we have to contribute to society and where our path lies.
Is your nine to five job really exemplifying who you are? Is the place of your employment really where you want to spend half of your waking hours? These maybe the types of questions you find yourself pondering as you wonder what the future holds for you.
If you realize that you aren't thrilled to get up in the morning, maybe it's time for a change. It's important to give consideration to your work and your work environment.
You might need only a very simple fix such as transferring within the company you already work for. Or, it may take some elbow grease to find your fulfilling livelihood.
The first step is to look at various possibilities, given your skills and experience. Don’t be afraid to try something completely different. Once you have decided, then doors will open up for you. At the very least, keep your eyes open to all that is available out there.
Your efforts during the past couple of weeks could generate the kind of response that you've been hoping for. Although there may not be a guarantee of a new position, getting feedback is always great for your self-esteem.
If you've been questioning your recent decisions, you may become more certain by what the universe seems to be sending your way. Your hunches have gotten you this far in life. Continue following the many leads that arise.
A proactive attitude allows you to feel in charge of your own destiny. There is a delicate balance between financial security and meaningful employment. Where are you in that balance? You may want to narrow your search. Perhaps you need to investigate further career options or research the benefits that a certain company has to offer.
You might also want to check out the stock performance or the track record of a business you’re considering an investment in. A little diligence on your part should grant you a step towards fulfilling your goals.
As the moon begins to wane, you might want to make a decision about any long terms plans you have been considering.
