November Horoscope for Capricorn
(December 22nd – January 19th)
Your focus is on career and goals because you’re about to make a giant leap forward. All your preparation has led you to this moment, and it will come in the form of a surprise. If it’s what you want jump in and make it happen. Relationships may feel neglected, because your mind is somewhere else. Strength is the driving force now, and you won’t have time for those who want to complain.
Capricorn has both a wild and a conservative side; the key to sanity is to embrace them both. The side you don’t acknowledge is the one you will project onto relationships. And until you incorporate it into your life, you won’t have much choice as to whom you’re attracted to. We are all looking for our disowned parts. So if you’re a wild, free-spirited Capricorn, you may find yourself in a conservative relationship that drives you crazy. And if you’re someone who follows the rules, you are probably attracted to a free spirit that could never fit into your life. To integrate these two apparently opposing sides, you need to accept them both as a part of you. If your work demands you fit into a mold, make sure you do something that takes you out of the box when you’re on your own time. Capricorn’s love nature because it’s totally free, displaying both peace and anger depending on the weather. Find a way to nurture the more hidden side of yourself, and you’ll find peace and happiness.
The Full Moon on the 4th sets off your 11th and 5th house -- the ruler of pleasure, friends and humanitarian causes. If you get pulled into a cause, embrace it. You’re meant to spend time connecting to something greater than yourself. Everyone needs ideals; they lift us up and make us feel better about ourselves. There is a need now to make a difference, to offer your services to either friends in need or to a larger cause. When you do you balance your ambition and you learn something important about yourself.
With Libra ruling your 10th house of career, you are lucky when it comes to business. The good news is both Mars and Venus are in Libra this month so the focus is on your career and your ability to make money. Br prepared to be surprised with a new opportunity or adventure. Mars keeps the focus on your goals and where you’re going. Venus is all about making money and with the opposition to Uranus opportunity will appear from where you least expect it. The question is not whether you can handle it, but whether it’s a project worthy of your time. There is no doubt that bills have to be paid and money keeps you going, but know that those who really succeed, don’t take their focus off their goals for too long. Too much diversity can distract and slow you down.
Relationships may suffer this month. Your need for independence and power is always challenged by the people who are close to you – they want your attention. They get energy from your strength and they feel taken care of when you’re around. Your reluctance to show vulnerability is compensated by taking care of everyone else’s demands. You should help out, support and guide when needed, but you’re not there to live their life and to make them happy. Happiness comes from the challenges we embrace and how we live our life, never from others. Part of you encourages their dependency because then you feel needed. Just realize that when you both can take care of yourself you can help each other voluntarily because you want to and not because you have to. This makes the best relationships. If you’re single, you will be attracted to strength now, more than even love. It’s the theme of the moment. As you reach for your strength and power you see it more clearly in others. And that’s a good thing. You can trust someone who is strong; they’re able to make a stand when necessary. Weakness is easily manipulated or seduced, so even if they have good intentions you can’t rely on them. Surround yourself with strength and you’ll have less problems in life.
