Happy Birthday, Capricorn! We bring you your Capricorn 2015 horoscope, will full into on your year ahead, valid from December 2015 – December 2016.
Over the past few years, you have been slowly culling away people who no longer inspire you. Maybe you came to see just how stodgy and confining many of your friendships were and, instead of putting more energy into cultivating ties that existed only because of history or obligation, you decided to cut your losses and move on.
The only problem is, you are not sure exactly where to move on to. A series of eclipses and a transit of Jupiter are opening up your mind and spirit to new vistas, and by removing yourself from the crowd, you can reflect on what you want your life to be. Saturn moved into your house of psychological wellness in September, shortly after Jupiter moved into your zone of existential awareness and the upcoming year is all about soul searching. In doing so, the superficialities of life no longer matter, you want meaning and nourishment – and this includes in matters of beauty.
You want to present a genuine face to the world, and do not want to be judged for the symbols of status that you so often hide behind. You may want to start by transitioning from traditional premium brands bought for name recognition and logo and start supporting the new luxury economy – skin care products and make-up that is locally and ethically made, perhaps by artisans who create on a very small scale, but of exceptionally high quality. By utilizing products that are ethical and sustainable, you will bring meaning to your world and the entire financial and commercial ecosystem.
This is also a time when beauty is definitely much more than skin deep. Your beauty regimen must be grounded in inner wellness, as your outer attractiveness will spring forth from a sense of deep-rooted harmony. Try to partake in spa days, massage treatments and yoga as a way of glowing from within.
You will need a lot of down time in order to recharge your batteries as most of your energy will go into thinking about life as opposed to living it. You may feel depleted and must make sure to get a lot of rest and eat well. This may all seem a bit heavy, but envision yourself as the Buddha sitting at the tree enlightenment. By slowing down, you will find a more meaningful direction, especially when Jupiter trines Pluto on March 16 and June 26. Embarking on new paths may meet with resistance from your more conventional side when Jupiter squares Saturn on March 23 and May 26, but they will provide the seeds of change you start implementing later in the year.
Don’t launch new endeavors, however, when Mars or Mercury is retrograde in your thinking sectors from April 17 to May 27 and August 30 to September 30, as new initiatives could just be false starts that peter out quickly. On June 17 and September 10, you could make a really negative impression by seeming too formal or haughty, so you may want to keep off the scene and not schedule important meetings.
When Jupiter moves into your career zone in early September and dynamic Mars transits your sign from September 27 until November 9, you will finally be ready to stop thinking and start doing. Your vitality and energy shoots up, and you will be moving from the realm of the mind and spirit to that of the body. Be daring and bold! Try a forceful look, one that shakes things up. This will also help you achieve success, as you are equally courageous at work. You will have finally figured out what you want to do with your life, and now you have the rest of the year to go for it!
The 2016 holidays could be stressful times, with rebellious family tension at Halloween and an overwhelming workload at the end of November. Christmas could have your kin kicking up their heels about the amount of time you need to work – but keep focused as this incredible opportunity for professional advancement only comes once every 12 years. Luckily some quality family time on Christmas Eve will more than make up for it, and also give you more inner serenity than an outing to the fanciest day spa.
Mars conjuncts Saturn on August 24; this is a great day to take care of your inner health, including mental health. Schedule a session with a therapist, and you will be able to get a lot of issues sorted. For external well-being, when Mars conjuncts Pluto in your sign on October 19, you can set up a diet and fitness plan and stick to it. This is also the best day of the year to get a new haircut or color or make other transitional changes to your appearance. Just be careful you don’t over do it!
In a wink: You are ready for a more meaningful life. The first three-quarters of the year is one for reflection, while the last months of 2016 are the perfect moment to implement change into your life by going for your dream job. Beautywise, you will also want to spend the beginning of the year working on your inner harmony, which will then radiate outward to the world. Choose artisanal cosmetics from sustainable companies to live on a higher vibration of consciousness. The last months of the year are for your external body to catch up with your inner growth, by choosing a totally new bold-and-powerful look that fits with the valiant new you.
