Capricorn This Month (Dec. 22-Jan. 20) -- The recent Mars retrograde ended in your sign; that's a way of saying that a collective issue of some kind came right back to you. It has landed in your lap for your evaluation. And that issue is desire. You have a way of allowing other people to determine what you want; what is appropriate for you; even what is true and what is not, in what you think of as some objective sense. By now, you may be experiencing the futility of living this way. Your ability to evaluate these things for yourself is the essence of your ability to exert your will. Now, seemingly all of a sudden, your will and your desire are of supreme importance. The odd knife-edge you may be walking is, can you experience desire without guilt? Can you have a notion of what is right for you, without experiencing some emotional compromise leading you to want to apologize for existing? Be clear about that much: guilt in any form means doing just that. This is not about right or wrong; those are subjective judgments. Your existence is about who you inherently are, and your right to guide your life from your core values. You have been told over and over again that you cannot have a value without others first approving of it, which is why you think you need the approval of others.  I have news for you today: that's not true.
