Happy Birthday Capricorn!

Happy Birthday Capricorn!

What you are looking for is something you are, not something you possess or need to have. You can feel confident searching within, as well as looking in certain specific places in the past where you feel you may have been sidetracked. The chances are, you probably were — but the beauty of this moment is that you can find your way. Remember, if you see the past as a source of gifts rather than a source of trauma or loss, you will experience it that way. Seek and ye shall find, so be conscious of what you look for.

Aries (March 20-April 19)
You’re finally seeing what you were missing: your usual boundless energy, which appears to have returned in force and there seems to be no stopping you. Certain issues, however, need to be handled carefully and with a combination of foresight and hindsight, particularly if they are of a professional nature. You need to understand one work-related situation a lot better than you currently do in order to make sure the ultimate result is progress. As an Aries, I recognize you have only limited patience, but if you remember what is important to you, you’ll find it a lot easier to slow down and make sure it happens.

Taurus (April 19-May 20)
A situation is rapidly developing that may eventually wind up getting filed under “more trouble than it’s worth.” You can help yourself by making sure that you don’t kick the nests of stinging insects, open jars of chemicals where you’re not sure what they contain, or invoke forces that you don’t understand. Still, a particularly sexual situation pertaining to a past involvement may be more alluring than you can stand to resist, in which case you need to enjoy whatever happens the very best you can and take a “come what may” approach.

Gemini (May 20-June 21)
If you can go out of your way to empathize with someone who really needs your attention, you’ll go a long way toward averting a minor crisis in that relationship. It is, unfortunately, a true astrological clich√© that those with strong Gemini traits often devote more time to inner dialog than the real thing. This can leave you standing in the dark where the concerns of certain other people are involved, or when it comes to really understanding their motives. If you think this may leave you short-changed in some way, fear not: by keeping a measured dialog going, you will only save energy and contribute to the good vibes.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)
You may be feeling edgy about something you cannot exactly put your finger on. The tension is building. Fear and desire are perhaps mixing into one emotion, and you seem to be getting attention; but perhaps it doesn’t necessarily feel like the right kind. Anyway, I suggest you not waste any time indulging anxiety, because it will only feed on itself. Right now whatever you are feeling will multiply and the world will deliver the results accordingly. It is true that you have quite a bit of attention — and can use that fact to spread a particular message that’s been important to you for quite a long time, but has not quite had its moment yet.

Leo (July 22-Aug. 23)
If you’re wondering whether you’re actually making progress, you are, despite the feeling that you’re somehow moving backwards. I hope that allays some concern you may have about proceeding in any direction you happen to be going. Certain work situations may seem more complex than they are, which more than anything is a function of how much is going on. Just keep following your instincts, which are pretty keen and sending you clear signals. It’s just that over the next week or so, the intensity and number of those signals are going to increase, so you will have to use your best listening skills from this point on.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sep. 22)
Persistent questions relating to your childhood and in particular your mother refuse to go away. It may seem inappropriate for a grown person to be so concerned or even obsessed over this subject, but it affects you in many ways and is thus worth devoting conscious thought in this direction. If you can keep your feelings close to the front burner over the next week or so, you have a fine opportunity to work something out on a deep level and finally let yourself off the hook. Less guilt is better, and no guilt is necessary — and in particular, remember that feeling guilt is not evidence that you’ve done something wrong.

Libra (Sep. 22-Oct. 23)
This may be one of the most introspective phases of your life in many years, and I would not doubt if many people you know are not hearing from you. They will still be there when you’ve sorted out your feelings about how your life has gone the past couple of years — none of this is anybody’s business but your own. You may be involved in assessing the damage, or trying to figure out how it was that your trust seems to have taken a beating. But I suggest you look back a lot earlier in history than the past three or four years; start long before the age of seven and you’ll get a clearer picture.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 22)
People who hold injuries from the past don’t often want to hear that this is an optional state of affairs. I recognize that all injuries are in some way the result of the past, so I may seem to be proposing that holding onto pain is unnecessary. It all depends on who you ask. If you ask the people who hold onto their pain, they will tell you it is in fact necessary. If you ask the people who have let go of their pain, they will tell you pain is not necessary and probably offer some details. So, what I am really saying, is be careful who you ask, and even more careful whose answer you accept as the truth.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 22)
You seem to be the person in the equation most able to tolerate the intensity of the discussion, but in truth, the least willing. That’s because you can feel the struggle for what it is and also are the one who knows consciously that it’s unnecessary. But whether you can apply your diplomatic skills at this point remains to be seen. You may want to stay back for most of the coming week and wait till things rise to a head, which will happen surely enough. It is clear that not only are people not seeing one another’s points of view, they may not know where they stand themselves.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 20)
I recognize that an odd kind of fog is surrounding you and may be leading you to question the sanity of just about everyone, yourself included. But don’t get carried away with the questioning. If you’re suffering from anything, it’s a false lack of confidence. You’ve already been through anything you’re going to go through any time soon; there are not a lot of surprises in store at the moment. However, for that to remain true, you need to keep your attention fixed on the road. Just because it’s foggy out doesn’t mean that’s a good time to doze off behind the wheel.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19)
Events of the next few weeks may seem poised to play on your worst insecurities, but only you have the power to turn this energy to your advantage. The time has come to question the role of fear in your life, as well as your concerns about the power of lies. Both fear and deception have one thing in common, which is that they erode integrity — no matter who is involved, or how. Therefore, if you rise above fear and have faith that the truth is all that matters, you will be a stronger person from moment to moment. At this point, you need to devote yourself to the constant maintenance of a realistic perspective, and do frequent reality checks.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)
There’s a wave of energy rising in your life now. It’s rising for everyone, but for Pisces there is a particularly intense quality. That does not mean destructive, nor does it necessarily imply productive — but it surely can be. You get to decide, but how exactly you do that may not be clear. As a Pisces, you know more than most that we all have a significant ability to determine what is real for us, and what is not. Yet implicit in that process is making decisions about these things as they present themselves, rather than delaying. The pace of your feelings, your mind and your activities is quickening now. Make sure you take your choices one at a time.
