Integrity is crucial now that the Moon is visiting hardworking Capricorn. Mountain Goats live at higher altitudes than other mammals, a symbol of the ambitious feelings we tend to have while the Moon is in this practical earth sign. Also, an enthusiastic Mars-Jupiter conjunction fires us up with self-confidence. We yearn to be recognized for the work we do and we aren’t afraid to climb the ladder of success to achieve status and get what we need.

It’s time to fulfill your domestic obligations or professional responsibilities and, if you do your job well, significant rewards are yours. The point is that you must earn them the good old-fashioned way with determination and hard work. It may be tempting to take a shortcut now, but this tactic will only delay your success. However, if you do what is required, good news could be waiting just around the next corner. In the meantime, honoring your commitments leaves you with a lasting feeling of personal satisfaction.

Even if you’re deeply involved with family issues now, you might have to adopt a more cautious approach to what’s going on at home. At first, it seems like you’re choosing the easy way out but this strategy only buys you time, not answers. Eventually you have to take a stand for your beliefs. Nevertheless, it’s still useful to remember that petty conflicts are not worth feeding with negativity. Rather than acting on your fears, visualize the best possible outcome for all involved and then strive to make it happen.

You may wake up on the wrong side of the bed today, thinking about all the responsibilities being piled upon you. There’s no need to be silent; speak up if you don’t think you should be doing what’s being asked of you now. But don’t do the work begrudgingly and then whine about it later. Instead, find a project that makes your heart sing. Doing something you love elevates your self-esteem and is ultimately good for those around you, too.

Feeling stress from a relationship has you questioning your own motives today, along with everything else. You don’t know what to say in order to delay an emotionally disruptive interaction but nearly any action is likely better than doing nothing at all. Don’t waste energy dancing with self-doubt; it’s simply not productive. Instead, use your time to isolate what matters to you before stating your position and then doing what it takes to defend it.
(Jul 23 – Aug 22)
You’re slightly annoyed today because you feel as if you should be working on something even if you don’t know exactly what it is. Thankfully, your dilemma might not even be noticeable to others, but it still can add frustration to your day. An obvious solution is to just jump in and get busy; start by crossing some of the lingering items off your to-do list one at a time. Once your adrenaline kicks in, you’ll quickly develop a better idea of how you want to spend your time.
(Aug 23 – Sep 22)
You are quite aware of your social obligations now and you are resigned to fulfill them, no matter what it takes. This determination may bring up familiar issues about your need to meet the expectations of others and how this can get in the way of your own personal satisfaction. But the good news is that you are on a sensible track to take care of unfinished business. Fortunately, staying focused early in the day leaves you time to pursue your own interests later on.
(Sep 23 – Oct 22)
Applying your energy toward projects around the house is nurturing for your soul today. However, frustration might set in if the good times seem to be a step or two away. Nevertheless, a pragmatic approach makes the most sense now; there are things to be done and you’re the one to do them. Acknowledging the feelings that surface while fulfilling your responsibilities is empowering. Ultimately, you can enjoy yourself if you remain conscious about the choices you make throughout the entire day.

You have places to go and people to see now that the ambitious Capricorn Moon is moving through your 3rd House of Distractions. Unfortunately, your calendar may be so full that you don’t get to do what you want. Instead of keeping your desires to yourself, share them with those around you. It’s difficult to go out on a limb and talk about you own needs when others are relying on you. However, being honest about your wishes is a healthier strategy now than denying your feelings to meet everyone else’s expectations.
(Nov 22 – Dec 21)
You are so smooth at justifying your decisions today that others might think your actions are based upon your strong personal values. You’re adept at keeping your feelings hidden now, making it nearly impossible for anyone to see your real motives. However, your current choices are probably determined by your emotional needs rather than core beliefs or ethical judgments. There’s no need to waste energy covering up what’s in your heart. Fortunately, telling the truth can actually set you free.
(Dec 22 – Jan 19)
It’s a mixed blessing when the Moon activates your sign for a couple of days. Normally, the evocative Moon draws you toward your emotions. However, you may be keeping your feelings to yourself now. Try to hold steady in the practical world instead of letting your fluctuating moods get the upper hand. If you must express what’s in your heart, take your time. A thoughtful disclosure can positively impact your most significant relationships.
(Jan 20 – Feb 18)
Almost anything that isn’t out in the open now can be the source of great stress. For example, someone may be creating trouble behind your back to block your forward movement. The smartest move is to expose whatever is hidden so everyone can see what’s actually going on. However, it’s not wise to force an issue yet because you might not have all the facts at your disposal. It’s best to play the waiting game until others come to the same realization; in the meantime, prepare to swing into action on a moment’s notice.
(Feb 19 – Mar 20)
You may be quite creative today, but it’s challenging to locate an outlet for your bursts of spontaneous expression. Fortunately, you can reveal your current enthusiasm by sharing what’s in your heart. However, you might feel external resistance to what you’re trying to express. Cool your heels if you must, but don’t blame your inhibitions on anyone else. Taking full responsibility for your self-restraint places you in the driver’s seat where you belong.
