Climbing to Success in 2016 and 2017
Capricorn, your sign is symbolised by the patient mountain goat, who always climbs to the top of the mountain. This ancient image of striving, succeeding and climbing describes your approach to work and also to society. You were held back when Saturn went through Libra, a few years ago – and held back in a way that really played with your sense of self. Fortunately, you took a rest, and then decided to keep going. You will have your rewards in the final quarter of 2016 and into 2017 as Jupiter goes through Libra and you are promoted; win an award; achieve outstanding business results; land a sought-after new job. The Lenormand Oracle card (below) is my psychic vision for you, in January 2016. It describes the mountain you must climb, around the time of your birthday.
This mountain is either society (the social ladder) or it is professional – you are looking at scaling the heights in your chosen profession, industry, field or business. I am here to tell you, nothing is too ambitious. Please keep climbing and maybe use this image (the Lenormand Oracle is very powerful) to see yourself moving from one ledge to another.
What I am also picking up for you with this card is that you have so many choices! To be successful means settling on one goal and being single-minded about that. It may be that you ‘can’t see the wood for the trees’ for a while. I suspect you need to stand well back from the bigger picture and take the long view. Then ask yourself which mountain. Some involve more work than the others, but they may be more attractive to you. How do you know when you’ve peaked? In your case, you never peak. You stand to triumph over your personal Everest by 2017 and then I feel you will be onto the next one.
You can be a Duchess – why not be Queen? You can be a star in your own country – why not be a global superstar? Sometimes the ambition for Capricorn is about switching fields or moving into new areas of achievement, quite separate to the one you made your name in. That, too, is a distinct possibility.
Love, Sex and Relationships
You are waiting for the Sun to go into Taurus and Cancer, to really get the measure of your former, current or potential partner in 2016. The first phase of wake-up calls and understanding runs from the final week of April to the third week of May. The next phase of ‘Aha!’ moments comes when you move from the final week of June into the third week of July.
If you made relationship or marriage choices based on the mortgage – the house or apartment – then I am sure you are still reeling from the sheer pace of change in the last few years. You can double that message, if your driving force in the partnership was also starting a family, or raising a family. This type of Capricorn relationship is, of course, very common. However, it is also where you need to remember that freedom and independence matter very much to people these days – and also to you. It is through the house or apartment, and the family, that you discover this in April 2016. So it’s Easter, then, that shows you why you need to change, and where you need to change. I think with this kind of relationship, a revolution is always around the corner. You will have many little revolutions while Uranus is in Aries.
If your love life has been seriously disrupted since 2014, it is because something is trying to break through – and that ‘something’ is the life force which insists that everybody and everything must be free. The more restricted or confined the situation has been for you with the mortgage, the family member, the rent – or the actual physical environment of your home and home town – the more dramatic the upheavals have been. If this happened to you I hope you can now appreciate that Independence Day had to come, one way or another. Now you are conscious of just how crucial it is to be independent, you can create your home life in a more awake, aware way. This will miraculously stop the dramas!
Keep Calm and Colour In
Capricorn, by now you have your 2016 Horoscope Journal. The poppy designs to colour in (the new mindfulness) are there to remind you of the planet Ceres and her cycles in 2016. The first major cycle she makes (she is ruled by poppies) is about your way with words, images and ideas. Your relationship with the world of the internet, multimedia or publishing. In March 2016 it is very important that you strive for a new arrangement which will give everyone and everything a level playing field, in terms of the control you all have. In terms of the power.
Reaching Out Across the World
This map (above) is another useful symbol to work with, when thinking about 2016. You already know particular parts of the national or international map really well. Been there, done that! What is completely new and tempting, though, is the chance of developing a big new relationship with a part of your country, or the world, which feels like an open invitation.
I know that travel, or moving, or even exporting ideas with distant people, in distant places, is not always an invitation. Sometimes it just feels so ordinary. What is truly different about 2016 is that you will feel that this pin on the map is personally meant for you. That this place and its customs, culture, history, beliefs is your gateway to something bigger and better. So it is. Don’t just skim over chances to travel there, work there, live there or just develop a Skype connection there. Every offer and opportunity is sincerely meant and beautifully timed and you would be crazy to pass it up.
Some of you will even emigrate by 2017. You may also carve out a new market in a part of the world which, a year or two ago, was quite beyond your reach or even unknown to you!
Did you know that as a Capricorn, your ruler is Saturn, and that the period around your 7th, 14th, 21st and 28th birthday (keep counting every seven years) is more important than any other time in your life? In these approximate time spans, Saturn makes aspects to his birth position in your horoscope. This lovely old Ladybird book illustration passed onto me on Twitter says it all. If you have your Saturn Return this year, then you have Saturn in Sagittarius. This is hugely important in terms of your travel, university, education, religious, spiritual, publishing or foreign agenda.
You will be tremendously helped and protected until September 2016 but after that, you must live in the real world with your plans. So be sharply aware of who and what you are getting into, if you are a Capricorn with Saturn in Sagittarius.
What Not To Do
What not to do this year? Anything sneaky, behind the scenes, which would be a problem for you, if people found out. I include activities you are barely conscious of, in this regard. We often unconsciously do dodgy things without even being fully aware and awake. So get hip to that, right away.
The other ‘what not to do’ is really easy because you’ve had so many lessons in this regard! With Pluto in Capricorn for the long haul, you know not to give your power away to other people or big organisations. You control your reputation. You control what is said about you on the internet, or in the media (if that applies to you).
This sense of power over yourself extends to your wardrobe, hair, body shape and the whole exterior package. I do feel that you will be wrestling with the same old issues in January and February 2016, Capricorn, but it’s nothing you haven’t done before. It gets easier every time it happens.
