Capable, Careful, Capricorn Sun 12/21/17

The serious, business-like Capricorn Sun arrives on Thursday, December 21, 2017 along with the celebrated Winter Solstice. As the year’s end approaches with all the festivities, it’s the perfect time to look at what we’ve accomplished in the last 12 months and make plans for 2018. I love that “what’s next?” question – a New Year, a blank calendar, great things are possible!

Tap into some of that leftover holiday energy because with Capricorn‘s affinity for work and organization, we can keep busy, accomplished and sensible. Strategize, tune up career moves, set up a networking campaign, determine whatever needs to be shaped up and do it. Make something happen. But don’t get so bogged down that you become rigid and over cautious. Relax, remember that you have a sense of humor – use it.

There are 2 major planet transits for the 10th sign of the Zodiac:

Pluto – deep feelings, possible changes in career direction, upheavel, rebirth (since 2008 until 2023)

Saturn – rules Capricorn so its influences will be tweaked. The visit lasts from 12/19/17 to 12/20/2020. Mature decisions, duty, responsibility are all highlighted for hopefully good results down the line.

Capable, Careful, Careerist Capricorn Sun 12/21/15

A serious Capricorn Sun arrives on Monday December 21, 2015 along with the celebrated Winter Solstice. As the year’s end approaches, mixed in with all the festivities, it’s the perfect time to look at what we’ve accomplished in the last 12 months and make plans for 2016. I love that whole “what’s next?” questioning process. A New Year, a blank calendar, great things are possible!

astrology_chartwheel 2Capricorn, an Earth sign ruled by the planet Saturn, ambitious, efficient, grounded, practical and patient. Yes, very different from all the upbeat holiday revelry most of us have been experiencing under the Sagittarius Sun, however, there’s no need to have a letdown. Capricorn can keep us busy, accomplished and sensible. Re-goal yourself (I made this word up), tune up career moves, network in house, organize whatever needs to be shaped up. Make something happen. Just don’t get so bogged down in responsibilities that you become rigid and cautious.  Key word – “delegate”!

There are 2 planets, plus the Sun, in Capricorn right now meaning that wherever this sign appears in the birth chart, its traits are intensified in that section of life. (And of course, a Capricorn Sun or Rising sign is especially energized.)

Planets in Capricorn:

*Pluto – Deep feelings, possible changes in career direction, upheavel, rebirth (since 2008 until 2023)

*Mercury – Moved into Capricorn on 12/10/15 – Communication can become serious and narrow-thinking. Maintain sense of humor. Reign in sharp, hurtful speech. (Until 2/14/16 * the planet will be Retrograde from 1/6/16 – 1/26/16)

However, regardless of your birth date, we may feel the Capricorn influence as we reach for an upgrade in status, get a thrill directing traffic and telling people what to do and where to go. Being the “top dog” is not a burden. Being in charge is welcome – fun for the boss, but maybe not so much for the employee? Remember to be careful with how you treat others, you can be authoritative with honey, rather than vinegar.

FYI:  “The Winter Solstice occurs exactly when the Earth’s axial tilt is farthest away from the sun at its maximum of 23° 26′…The seasonal significance of the winter solstice is in the reversal of the gradual lengthening of nights and shortening of days.” (per WikiPedia)

 

 

Winter is Here & So Is The Capricorn Sun!

astrology_chartwheel 2The Sun enters Capricorn on Friday December 21, 2012, and it also heralds the Winter Solstice, the official start of Winter in the Northern Hemisphere. This Earth sign, ruled by Saturn, believes in duty, responsibility, and loves being in charge. Regardless of our birthday, we may all feel some of the ambitious, “being the Boss” Capricorn energy until January 19, 2013 when the Sun moves into rebellious Aquarius.  Also, note that feisty, in your face Warrior planet Mars is visiting Capricorn until December 26, 2012. Be careful with others as you tell them what to do (Christmas tree decorating is supposed to be fun). You can be authoritative with honey, rather than vinegar.

No need to experience a letdown after all the holiday spirit. It’s the perfect time to look at what we’ve accomplished in 2012 and make plans for 2013. With Capricorn‘s affinity for work and organization, we can keep busy, accomplished and sensible. Tune up career moves, plan your networking push, determine whatever needs to be shaped up and do it. Make something happen. Just don’t get so bogged down that you become rigid and/or cautious.  Relax, remember that you have a sense of humor – use it.

BTW:  “The Winter Solstice occurs exactly when the Earth’s axial tilt is farthest away from the sun at its maximum of 23° 26′. Though the winter solstice lasts only a moment in time, the term is also a turning point to midwinter or the first day of winter…The seasonal significance of the winter solstice is in the reversal of the gradual lengthening of nights and shortening of days.” (per WikiPedia)

Capricorn, 10th sign of the Zodiac is an Earth sign ruled by the planet Saturn.  It is traditional, grounded, likes structures and boundaries and has striving ambition.
