Capricorn’s Life Horoscope
When you know what you want, you can express what you want clearly, and you’ll draw people who can give it to you. Unfortunately on the 1st and 2nd, you might not be all that clear in your own mind as to what it is you want (and need). As a result, when you try to express yourself, it could all come out a jumble. Then, as a result of that, you might find yourself surrounded by a somewhat flakey group of individuals. Don’t despair! Just take a step back, do something nice and relaxing, and stop stressing out. The answer will come to you when you’re ready to hear it! By the 5th and 6th, you might feel a little harried. Are too many people demanding too much from you? Draw your boundaries firmly. Focus on your career on the 10th and 11th, and you can’t go wrong. Everything starts going very, very right on the stunningly fabulous 16th and 17th. Music, film, a photography exhibit — anything creative will really get your creative juices flowing on the 21st and 22nd. Relaxation could lead directly to romance (who is that cutie getting aromatherapy the next table over?) on the 27th. Don’t take anything personally, if you can help it, on the 30th and 31st. It really isn’t about you.
Capricorn’s Love Horoscope
If you’re feeling flighty on the 1st and 2nd, chances are you could attract an equally ‘I don’t know’ kind of partner. So before you start committing to someone who’s clearly not in this for real, take a step back. Take a deep breath. Now, do the hard work of figuring out what it is you want. This could be about something as big as ‘who do I really love’ or as small as ‘what kind of sandwich do I really want to eat for lunch?’ Whatever the decision facing you right now, make sure you know how you want to handle it. If you and a loved one are having some disputes about what it is you really need and really want in this relationship on the 5th, 6th and 7th, you should do your best to compromise. Don’t forget: Your best is usually pretty good. You’re focused on career, not romance, on the 10th and 11th. That’s okay, but do follow up on that rain check. If your eyes meet across a crowded room and you just know that they are the one for you and you are the one for them on the 14th or 15th, pay attention. After all, you could find out — say on the super romantic 16th and 17th — just how right you are. You’re feeling good and looking great on the 21st. Romance is definitely in the cards on the 25th. Don’t take anything to heart on the 30th and 31st.
Capricorn’s Money Horoscope
On the 1st, you should sit down at your desk with a fine tooth comb and look through all those itty-bitty details. You know, the way monkeys look for fleas. Or a third grade teacher looks for lice. Or a gold miner looks for gold! Because what you are looking for could be a tricky little clause in the third page of an agreement’s fine print that lets the manufacturer off the hook for repairs if the computer system crashes, and you need to give it your attention. On the 5th, a problem could be a real pain, if it goes unchecked. On the 10th, all that minutiae will be taken care of, and you can turn your attention to other things — like your great big castle-in-the-sky dreams for the company’s future, for example. Whatever you dream up now could very, very well become reality — and quicker than you think. The 16th should be a heavy-duty communication day. Whether you’re faxing out a press release or getting the Beijing, Paris and Warsaw offices together on the videophone, prep yourself first on the 20th. You want to know just what you want to say on the 25th. Check your bank account on the 30th and 31st.
Astrologer’s Advice For Capricorn
You are attracting the wrong sorts of people today — they may be flighty or sarcastic, but in some way they are far from serious. You may need to sequester yourself away from them for a bit.
