Capricorn | Horoscope Expert


Dec 22 – Jan 19

The toughest lesson for you to learn today is that there's a big difference between acting mature and actually growing up. Anyone can act the part of an adult – and today, someone in your life does a darned good job of it. But don't let yourself be fooled. This someone (or someone else) needs to step up and be the mature one in a tense situation, and you must make sure they're genuine before you give them any responsibilities. They might just be telling you what you want to hear.

On Monday, you're dreaming of the woods: camping, trees, a crackling fire. You may not be able to dart off into a forest any time soon, but do your best to spend some time in an environment that in some way relaxes you. By Wednesday, you will likely feel the opposite of relaxed as flighty people zip all around you. Anyone who makes you nervous doesn't deserve a lot of attention, so be short and sweet on Thursday. Cut to the chase on Friday as well. This weekend, you'll be able to dote on one special person, and nothing makes you happier on Sunday than giving someone else a back rub.

A new Libra moon on October 8 gets your month off to a balanced beginning. This is a great neutral jumping-off point for work projects, personal growth, and new relationships, Capricorn.

Venus turned retrograde on the fifth and squares off with Mars on the tenth, which creates some difficult energy within a close relationship. Sexual tension could intensify in a romantic entanglement, or a friendship may suffer from control issues. Either way, it’s necessary for the two of you to get something out of the way before you can move forward with your relationship. If you don’t address it now, you might never get past it.

You have good judgment during the Mercury-Saturn sextile on October 12, and you tend to make honest and practical decisions under its steady influence. Discussions are serious and to the point, but you always find a way to get in a clever pun or witty reply.

A sun-Saturn sextile on the twenty-seventh emphasizes your strong work ethic and gives you the energy and determination to get the job done. You’re serious, so you aren’t interested in working with people who don’t take their job seriously. You’d much rather do something on your own than be surrounded by a team that cares less about the project you’re working on than you do.
