Horoscope: How Pressure Makes Diamonds (Sun in Capricorn

By December 24, 2018 Horoscope

Just yesterday, after the Solstice, the Sun changed signs, from expansive and abundant Sagittarius, into heavy and serious Capricorn.

This shift brings a completely different energy to light, giving you the opportunity to achieve great success for the next month through tackling your responsibilities, rolling up your sleeves, and getting to work.  

When the Sun enters Capricorn, we have an entire month to reflect on our past year, and make the necessary changes to ensure a bright and successful future.  

However, it’s rarely all fun and games.  Capricorn energy is all about hard work, facing your fears, and doing it anyway – even if you’re terrified of failure.  

This year, we also find Saturn, Pluto, and the South Node in Capricorn.  This gives the next month ahead a much more heavy tone than usual. Saturn tends to weigh us down with the burdens we’ve taken on intentionally, while Pluto helps us transform our lives through trauma and irreversible change.  The South Node ensures what we experience is karmic by nature.

Mix these energies up in Capricorn, and it can force us to face our fears without a safety net to catch us, or a rope to hold on to.  You will discover new challenges during this time that will become your cross to bear for the rest of 2019.

But it’s not all doom and gloom, if you know how to work with the energies right.  

Now is the time to take care of your business.  The more you admit your limits, the better you can stay on track and persevere through the peril you encounter.  

Capricorn is all about getting things done, no matter what obstacles you face, or surprises show up in your life.  This is the best time of year to set goals, get organized, and plan for your future. In fact, this energetic quality is why we have “new years resolutions” in the first place.  

Logical and conservative, Capricorn asks you to be mindful of your budget, especially after holiday spending!  It’s a great time to press your suit and dress the part, because now you can become the boss of your own life, even if you’ve felt things have been out of control.  

You’ll find it easier now to put in those extra hours at the office, and achieve more than usual.  Just be careful of burning yourself out! It’s easy to put your nose-to-the-grindstone when Sun is in Capricorn, but it’s also easy to grind yourself down to the bone.  Take frequent breaks and listen to your body so you don’t go overboard.

You will feel this more intensely over the next 18 months, as we will also experience an eclipse in Capricorn on January 5th, starting a new 18 month eclipse cycle that highlights the serious matters in your life.  

Horoscopes by Zodiac Sign

Note:  These horoscopes are not a full chart reading, but they do offer insights into how your Zodiac Sign is affected while the Sun passes through Capricorn, and transits Saturn, Pluto and South Node this time around.

Aries:  March 21st – April 19th

This energy urges you to focus on your professional duties, and understanding your obligations to others.  You may find yourself jumping out of bed at the fear of going broke, which may actually help you, even though it doesn’t feel great.  Don’t fold under pressure. Because from this energy comes the ability to refine your purpose in life, and harness your duty to the world.  Be reasonable with yourself. When the going gets tough, remind yourself of why you are doing what you are doing, and you’ll find the internal strength to come back even stronger.  

Taurus: April 20th – May 20th

This energy pushes you to come to terms with reality, and the path you’ve chosen through it.  We are all raised with ideas of the world, but now is the time to challenge them. Are you doing what you want to do, or what someone told you that you SHOULD want to be doing?  This time period is about removing blockages that may be getting in the way, even if they’ve been silently blocking you for years. You may have been taught these obstacles without realizing it, so even if this becomes a rude awakening for you, it will be a necessary purge of everything standing in your way.  Remember, ideas only have authority over you if you allow them to.

Gemini:  May 21st – June 20th

This energy puts your attention on your interactions with other people, and the time, energy, and finances you invest in them.  You may find yourself in long-term entanglements that no longer serve you, and if so, don’t be afraid to cut the cord. There are things you have always thought you’ve needed from others, that in reality, you don’t need at all.  In fact, they could be hindering your progress. Allow for the upgrades you want in your life to come into fruition. You might not actually need the support structures you’ve been relying on for so long, and during this time, you’ll find you can be much stronger standing on your own without them.   You are much more self reliant than you give yourself credit for.

Cancer:  June 21st – July 22nd

This time period shines a light on your relationships, and the patterns you’ve repeated for most of your life within them.  It’s time to transform what you think about others, and how you act with them. You may have found yourself in submission to others in the past, that is now stirring up a rebellious spirit inside of you.  This is about finding your own raw, organic, and authentic self amongst the patterns you’ve been living through unconsciously. You deserve respect just as much as everyone else, but that doesn’t mean you must demand it when you don’t feel it.  Being a rebel or a follower both stop you from growing into the person you are destined to become. Put yourself first for a change, and you’ll see that other’s show you more respect than ever.

Leo: July 23rd – August 22nd

This energy puts your personal habits under a microscope, mainly the negative ones.  Some are easy to spot, like smoking, eating junk food, or mindlessly surfing the web.  Others, are much more subtle, and hidden deeper in your nature. It’s time to audit your unconscious habits, even the ones you didn’t know you have.  One of these habits is your stubbornness, and unwillingness to free yourself when stuck in a rut. Sometimes it’s OK to find a new way to do things, even if you are unwilling to let go of the old.  Whatever your stuck-pattern is, you will find it show up on the January 5th eclipse stronger than ever. Pay attention to the clues. Let go of this habit without replacing it, as a new and healthier habit will replace it, all in due time.  

Virgo:  August 23rd – September 22nd

This quality of time shows the truth in your creative investments.  What are you putting your creative energy into, and how is it truly working out for you?  Often times, we invest our creativity into something we think is positive, but turns out to be a black hole that goes nowhere.  As painful as it is, you must cut these black holes out of your life over the next year, as events will force you to do it otherwise.  Most of these black holes are self-imposed fears that cause great anxieties, and get in your way of creating what will truly help you, not hinder you.  These energies will push you to let go of people, projects, and mentalities that are not getting you the results you want, no matter how much you wish they did.  

Libra: September 23rd – October 22nd

This energy asks you to focus on situations revolving your family and home life.  You’ll feel it the most on the January 5th Eclipse, where these issues will rear their heads in an unavoidable way.  You don’t need to create the same type of home that you were raised in, and you will see this now more than ever. You’ll need to dissect your approach to family, without rebelling against them, or cementing the patterns of old.  Allow the alchemy to happen, and don’t over react to the things that used to get your goat. You will be forced to face lots of family issues, but that doesn’t mean you must be shaped by them. Take into account the feelings of others.  Cooperation is key.

Scorpio:  October 23rd – November 21st

This time period brings to focus your day to day, week to week patterns and cycles.  Where are you avoiding the necessary out of ungrounded fears? Sometimes, it’s the little moments during the day that define your entire week.  Look at how you are managing your time, and focus on becoming more efficient with your energy. When you recognize these moments, realize they are just being exposed, and the next step is to change them.  It doesn’t all happen at once, so don’t be hard on yourself. You will find yourself with more time and energy to shape life as you desire, where you can work amongst the fears that once slowed you down.

Sagittarius:  November 22nd – December 21st

This energy puts a spotlight on money, and how you handle your finances.  What are you spending your money on and what are you saving? The patterns you’ve held on to for years will be challenged during this time.  If you’re wondering what the major issue is, you’ll find out on January 5th. Start putting more money aside than usual now, because you may need it for a rainy day.  Look at what you’ve been spending your money on, and ask yourself, do I really need this or is it just what I’m used to buying? Saying “no” to old spending habits will go a long way now.  

Capricorn:  December 22nd – January 19th

This time period, the month of your birthday, brings about a major focus on your standards, both of yourself, and other people.  These standards may have held you up for a long time, but you may discover that some of them may have been holding you back, and keeping you down.  They may have been your backbone for years, but where did they come from? Where did they originate? Some you’ve chosen, but others have been handed down to you since childhood, and hold no relevance in your adult life.  The eclipse on January 5th will reveal which of these standards are supportive, and which ones have been poisoning your life. Try to stop being so hard on yourself, and on others – even when you think a strict hand is the best way forward.  

Aquarius:  January 20th – February 19th

This energy puts you face to face with your fears, specifically your fears involving one other person.  Who has been holding your success over your head, and why are they still in your life? You must take a close look at your one-on-one relationships now.  Some of these relationships may have been forged out of fear, and only exist because of your guilt from the past. Maybe you have not lived up to their standards, or perhaps you are trying to make up for a shameful episode from the past.  Either way, the eclipse on January 5th will show you who in your life may not be a as positive of an influence as you once thought, so please be gentle with yourself as you are influenced to break ties and let go.

Pisces:  February 20th – March 20th

This next month will bring up issues revolving around your public image, and the groups of people you relate to in your life.  Pay close attention to your reputation, as this energy will pull into focus how you present yourself publicly. You will be forced to confront how you handle these interactions, and dissolve the ones no longer serving you, even if they helped in the past.  If you look deep enough, you’ll discover the underlying current that has guided you into being this way, giving you a great opportunity to change it. Look at how you “think” you are supposed to behave, and start to question where you learned that behavior, if you want the world to see your best self at all times.
