Back up what you say with fact

Be cooperative – not competitive

Dance to your own tune – not anyone else’s

Be sure of your facts this week, Capricorn. And also look at who has the ‘authority’ in your life and may be questioning either your facts, your opinion or just you. Vesta arrives in your 1st this week and this is an important dwarf planet. In mythology Vesta was the daughter of your ruler, Saturn. With Vesta we often see one man in a situation with two or more women. Think the Vestal Virgins who were under the rulership of one man in ancient Rome. This man can either be supportive or can be oppressive, or even foster a sense of competition amongst women for his approval. No matter what gender you identify with, look closely this week at any situation where one man is surrounded by at least two women. Above all, avoid any situation where you feel you are the ‘other’ woman or being manipulated into being competitive with another female(s) if you are female. If you are the male of the piece here, time for equality and perhaps to embrace your own feminine side. Be supportive and above all, don’t encourage women to ‘compete’ for your favours whether this is within your own family, your job or socially. Be one of the good guys.

You’re entering a cycle of success and achievement this week as the Sun and Mercury head into your 10th of career and reputation. All the more reason to be sure of what you say and where you are coming from. Time to take yourself seriously on a professional level. Mercury rules contracts so serious agreements can be entered into now. Contracts can be signed. People will be watching you. So all the more reason to step free of any competition this week and be seen as someone prepared to make it on their own terms.  Not by dancing to someone else’s tune.

Direct your destiny

Weave a magic spell of enchantment and luck!

Work it like a boss

Who’s the boss this month, Capricorn? Hopefully when it comes to directing your life where you want it to go, that’s you.  At the very least you need to be taking up the reins of responsibility and driving your life forward again as ruler Saturn heads direct in your 1st from the 6th. Time, structure, authority and establishment are what Saturn in your 1st is all about as is getting serious about your direction. You’ll find yourself dealing with these themes this month not just in your career but also via who has the ‘authority’ in your life. Is that you or have you abdicated that authority to someone else? Saturn is handing you your life to live your way. Are you ready?

If you’re not the director of your own life, then who is? The month begins with Mercury and the Sun in your sector of freedom, learning and expansion. Saturn retrograde should have shown you who or what is holding you back or calling those shots. And whether you have allowed them to do this. Once Saturn moves forward, it will form a Grand Trine between Mercury in your 9th and Uranus in your 5th, breaking you free from whatever holds you back. That freedom may be easier to attain than you think. You’ve the confidence to take a big step or make a bold move. You won’t take kindly to anyone trying to block or restrict you now. A little ‘break free to be me’ action is favoured. As is taking that calculated risk. But just ensure you don’t throw the baby out with the bathwater and don’t rebel for its own sake and alienate people whose support you may need later in the month when the focus shifts back to your work and career.

It’s time to forge your path and to strike the balance batten confident self-determination and the realisation that at the end of the day we are all accountable. If not to someone else, then to ourselves. But don’t be afraid to strike out in a totally fresh direction if necessary. The new Moon in your 9th opposes Neptune in your 3rd. It wants to draw you into a bigger, higher experience. Travel, education, large animals, the law, mass media, the great outdoors, education and larger than life people – one, some or even more of these elements could form part of this new path. Time to dream big and expand your horizons. Even if you are travelling now, you could encounter or even do business with, people from far away. And this is an excellent new Moon under which to begin to plan that major trip as it gives you a better than average chance of doing it, rather than just dreaming about it.

Venus enters your 11th on this day too. Your 9th also rules travel and is about big dreams and having a vision while your 11th rules your goals. Having authority over your own destiny allows you to go after those dreams.  You’re probably feeling that someone big is just around the corner – and you’re probably right! Venus in here adds an element of luck and enchantment. You could find yourself in the right place at the right time, telling a total stranger about that goal or vision you have. Only to discover they are in a position to help you. Either directly or via someone they know. Synchronicity is on your side now especially as the Sun also in your 9th angles to Jupiter in your  11th.  If you read your forecasts regularly, you may remember that when Jupiter entered this house in your chat last year, I told you to make three wishes. And to expect at least one to come true during the next 12 months. I also told you that Jupiter needs us to take action to activate its energy. It is not your fairy godfather, the Easter bunny and Santa all rolled into one vast, jolly package. Right now you have both Venus and Jupiter in your 11th, the final time you have these two in this house at the same time for the next 12 years. Both want to deliver good things. So are you ready? Get control of your destiny, set your direction and make your wish and then – ACT! And watch as those synchronicities and apparently random ‘lucky’ breaks begin to happen.

You are the boss of your life and now it’s time to work that career path like a boss – whether you work for someone else or not. Mercury enters your 10th on the 22nd and the Sun on the 23rd. You’ve had a taste of freedom but now it’s time to get serious again. At least for the time the Sun remains in here. Be open to advice and input from people older or more experienced than you. There’s a massive difference between taking advice and allowing someone to dictate your every move. Be seen as someone who knows what they want and who takes themselves seriously. Show you are a leader but always open to learning. Above all, be authentic. That’s another word that’s linked to ‘authority’. Set out to impress with your ideas and what you know. And if you don’t know the answer – don’t pretend you do. It will only backfire later. Focus on your confidence and be aware that you are being watched during this cycle by people in positions of influence so guard your image and reputation. With Mercury in here ensure your word truly is your bond and you could see your efforts pay real dividends now.

This month’s full Moon is in the Moon’s ruling 4th. There’s a saying that there is no room for emotion in business. If career matters are climaxing at this time, please remain focused and businesslike. This is your moment. The full Moon can mark an opportunity to rebuild our lives on some level and to reach for a stronger sense of security and belief in ourselves. You may feel under pressure, perhaps juggling work and family commitments or dealing with a deadline, but know this is a passing phase. Thoughts of one or even both parents could be on your mind and these may relate to you having the authority over your own life. Or is there another person you are constantly trying to please rather than yourself? This Moon asks us to step into emotional adulthood and realise whose life we need to live – our own.

September is offering you the opportunity to take on new and additional responsibility, to be a self-directed individual and also the chance to see those ;grown up’ dreams begin to form into real concrete goals. They may be dreams today but take the steps to make them real tomorrow this month, Capricorn.

In a nutshell: Time to be CEO of You.Inc and drive your vision for the business of your life, Capricorn. If you do, expect luck and synchronicity to help you along that path to success this September.

Capricorn 2018 

WOWWEEEE! Have I got news for you! You are about to experience a cosmic conundrum! The Alchemy of 2018 can deliver all sorts of liberation to you. 2018 begins with Saturn your ruler in your sign for the first time since 1991. If you were alive and conscious back then, check out how that year went for you as you might find some juicy clues in how to make the most of this year.

Most signs that have Saturn approaching tend to run screaming for the hills. Saturn is strict, has high expectations and demands accountability. Most signs aren’t you. You work well with structure and blossom when given responsibility. 2018 promises to deliver a juicy challenge and a grand restructuring. Rickety foundations are kicked away with strong, solid roots replacing them.

Capricorn, you are a builder, what you decide to focus on and establish now is not only going to effect this year but possibly the next 28 or so. Choose your projects carefully but as your ruler has your back, aim high.

Love gets interesting this year, as Uranus, the glorious unpredictable one, is going into your 5th house of pleasure and creativity. You have a touch of genius about you, your longings are shifting, and you might find yourself thrust previously unknown sensual experiences. For some Capricorns, there may even be a surprise pregnancy or connection with kids. Uranus intends to spend quite a bit of time here so open your heart to embrace radical loving.

Before Uranus dazzles in your 5th from the 15th May, another powerful love transformation is provided by Venus the Goddess of love hooking up with Pluto the Lord of change on the 9th Jan. Both these babies are in your sign! The Sun in Capricorn is also conjunct Pluto. You are plunging into a fresh way of being. Anything that is not authentic is being swept away. You are determined to succeed and thrive and only want genuine connections around you.

With Mercury entering your sign on the 11th and then teaming up with Saturn on the 13th you enter 2018 making a deep commitment, hopefully this is a commitment to yourself and your life path as well as to anything external. With Mars conjunct Saturn on the 2nd April be careful that you are not being too forceful in pushing your agenda. Take the time to check that you are dealing with others with the appropriate empathy and kindness and are not being too bullish in tearing towards your goals.

Jupiter is giving you a gift in all you collaborations and there should be a feeling of comradery all year. Benefits from friends, groups, bands (literally if you are in one!) and contacts flow your way. No matter what it is you want to achieve this year, Jupiter in here says to begin with exploring the potential for help amongst people you know – or are getting to know. Jupiter always expands our experience in whatever area of our charts he is in. So, expect your social circle to grow and to learn something new about the world from the people you connect with. Jupiter in here also gives you the confidence to be yourself. You’ve the healthy attitude of ‘This is me – take me as I am’. The fabulous thing about coming from this perspective is that you attract others who totally dig you the way you are – and resonate with you. One thing is certain, you’ll be clear about who is on your team – and who isn’t now. 

July 13 sees an eclipse of the heart occur in your relationship sector. What needs to be addressed? This is a solar eclipse and while it is a partial one, you need to bear in mind that eclipses cover up – and then things are revealed over time. Your emotional needs could surface and if you are in a relationship, you can use this to get closer to your partner. Single? If someone appears, take things slowly – again, this is due to the eclipse covering up. Wait for the real person to reveal themselves. If what finally comes to light is that you cannot find the solution to your issues, then you may decide to walk away. Whatever occurs now, expect the outcome to be deep and lasting.  

Pay close attention to career matters or even those of your partner’s may be affected in November. Throughout this year you have Saturn’s support. Even when he retrogrades from April until September this gives you ample opportunity to continue to build on what you have started to work on or establish. Think of this period as shoring up your foundations or adding to the strength of what you have begun. This is important as when Venus makes a rare retrograde in your 10th of career, reputation and status, you may suddenly lose your sense of purpose and drive. Setbacks and delays are possible and you may even end up feeling you have had a successful charisma by-pass operation as no matter how hard you try, you just may not come across to others in the way you would like. This is because Venus starts her retrograde in your 11th and then moves back into your 10th. Try to avoid important meetings during this period if you can. This also includes dates as Venus rules our love life and your 10th rules the status of your partner – another reason why if you are taken, it may be your partner’s career which is affected under this retrograde. As Mercury will retrograde in your 12th immediately after Venus heads direct again, one possibility from this is that you think you are dating Mr. Darcy only to discover you have snagged George Wickham. Or that job offer turns out not to be what you thought it was.  

Fortunately by early December, Saturn, Venus and Mercury are returned to forward motion. You’ll find your intuition to be your compass now as the Sun heads towards your sign, bringing the year to a close for you. New ideas and plans will be at the front of your mind for 2019 and what is more – you will have the foundation in place and the knowledge to get the most of these. Do the groundwork and 2018 could just put you on course for long term success. 


In a nutshell: It’s a year of laying your foundations – but also to dare to dream, Capricorn! You can head in any direction you want now. Expect a liberation from the past with massive potential ahead.
