Happy Birthday, Capricorn!
December 22, 2015
As a Capricorn, you may have been through many challenges in recent years, but you have handled them with grace and fortitude. You were born at the time of the year when nature shows her beauty though simplicity. The trees are bare, and the sun casts strong shadows against the mountains in high relief. Your earthy, practical view of the world makes you especially well suited for handling difficult situations in a cool, calm way.
Uranus in Aries has been in harsh angle to your Sun in Capricorn. Ever since Uranus entered this constellation in March 2011, you may have had to relocate—possibly more than once—and the decision may have come up suddenly. Your career was likely driving this situation, for you may have had to move to take advantage of emerging professional opportunities. This situation might continue for you, as Uranus is still in Aries, especially if your birthday falls between January 7 to 16.
The eclipses that occurred in October 18, 2013, April 15, 2014, October 8, 2014, and April 4, 2015 were important points when decisions about your career and living situation may have been required. We have only one more eclipse in the Aries-Libra series, due March 23, and that one will affect only those with birthdays that fall near December 24.
If you still need to move, you may run into problems from April through June when Mars will be retrograde. Mars will be moving direct but will still be weak in August. Mercury will retrograde in September (August 30-September 22), which could also impact your home-related plans. Things begin moving forward in October, November, and December 2016. This is generally the case for all parts of life—and everyone will be subject to Mars in slow motion—but Mars rules your home sector.
You might consider the middle part of this year (April through September) as the time to fix or improve actions, projects, and relationships.
Your most potent part of the year will be when Mars tours Capricorn for the first time in two years, from September 27 to November 9, 2016. Mars will give you high energy and drive, and could make others sit up and take notice of all you have to say. This will be the time of the year to launch your most vital relationships and projects.
Turning the attention to other parts of your life, you may find that travel is quite exciting in 2016. Throughout the year, until September 9, you will host good-fortune Jupiter in your ninth house of broadening, awe-inspiring travel, dear Capricorn. Jupiter visits your ninth house of your horoscope every 12 years. Jupiter will help you widen your scope and open you up to new cultures, colors, tastes, scents, sounds, and views—forming an exciting experience.
The same area of the chart that Jupiter will be brightening rules your ninth house of higher education. This year you may be finishing up an advanced degree, presenting a thesis, or simply taking important courses to update your expertise in your chosen field.
Getting your goals for higher education in place will be a sterling idea, for in September 9, 2016, Jupiter will move out of your education sector and into Libra and your house of prestigious career success. No other sign will have this favor—you will be Jupiter’s favorite when it comes to helping you reach your professional goals.
You may have gone through many career challenges and adjustments, but once you get to September 2016, relief is in sight. Jupiter in a new position and can help you transform yourself into a force of nature in your chosen field. You will have until October 10, 2017 to make your mark—a period of 13 months when you could be showered with opportunity. You may always be able to climb to the top of the mountain, for certainly, you are an ambitious sign. What makes this coming period different is that you may find that from September 2016 to October 2017 you will be able to make enormous leaps forward. Of course, you will have to do your part by working hard and smart. Have your priorities set, and when asked by influential people how they can help you, have an answer ready.
Romantically, things could improve enormously, too. Saturn in Scorpio was a bit of an obstacle for you to find love, but as of June 2015, Saturn left Scorpio—a tough place for Capricorn—for good, not to return for several decades. If you are single, from now on you might find it easier to locate your one true love. Mars in Capricorn will make you seem more attractive than ever and raise your profile. You won’t feel invisible—in fact, you may be surprised and even a little bewildered about the attention you may be getting. In this case, married or single, you will love this period, and if you are attached, you could have an opportunity to bond more closely with your partner.
Just when Mars is leaving, Venus will tour Capricorn from November 12 to December 7, 2016, a time you will be most charismatic and magnetic. When Mars tours your sign you might be more interested in going out and mixing and mingling. Mars will make you a bit more assertive; in contrast, Venus teaches that it is not necessary to try too hard. Just being you will be enough—put yourself in social situations, and you will most likely find that admirers will come to you.
