The Goat

With Capricorn as your Sun Sign

With the Sun in the cardinal earth sign of Capricorn you are basically a down to earth and practical person. You possess a great deal of patience and quiet ambition, but you may also suffer from a distinct lack of self-confidence. You are not pushy but once you have decided on a course of action you can work hard for many years, enduring many set-backs, to achieve what you have set out to do. You will want to be seen doing the right thing but saying that you will also need to see some sort of material or tangible result from all your efforts, accruing wealth or a position of authority and power. You do have a tendency to take life too seriously, there is always work to be done and duties to perform and you may have little patience with those who take a more laid back approach to life and love. You may need to loosen up a bit sometimes and enjoy life in the here, and now and that will come out in the form of an off-beat sense of humour that will delight everyone around you.

With Capricorn as your Ascendant

The cardinal earth sign of Capricorn was rising over the horizon at the time and place of your birth. You will tend to approach new phases of your life cautiously, reluctant to let go of the old ways until you are certain that the new venture will be successful, or is the right thing to do. As a result, self-confidence is a real issue with you. One minute you will feel like a king with huge self-belief & the next you will feel so nervous that you will unable to carry out the simplest of tasks. Often you will be unable to see yourself or analyse yourself clearly, so you may underestimate your own abilities. You will tend to have a serious air about you & others may perceive you initially as cool and not very approachable.

You do tend to err on the side of pessimism, even when things are going well for you & you will not allow yourself to become over optimistic since you feel that if something can go wrong it probably will. You are quietly ambitious, with a need to achieve your ideas or ideals through some kind of practical endeavour. Once you have set your sights on a mountain to climb you can pursue your goal in spite of set-backs & disappointments and nothing can stop you from reaching the top, even if it takes a lifetime.

In relationships, those with Capricorn ascendants can be very warm, caring and sensitive to their partner’s needs and may even worry over them and show undue concern. Avoiding tension is necessary, as you can develop skin complaints is stressed, and Capricorn Ascendants can suffer with depression when setbacks block their progress in life. Capricorns are surprisingly musical, and this help to calm them and cheer them up.

Capricorn is ruled by Saturn, the house position and aspects to this planet will be of particular importance to your chart. 

January 2018 for Capricorn Ascendant

These predictions have been written to fit your Ascendant sign, and that is dependent not only on the day your were born but also the time that you were born as well as the place of your birth.

Ok, so Capricorn ascendants, what does 2018 hold in store for you? Well it's natural to starting with the outer planets and how they are affecting you in general and this is a summary of where they are moving before I move on to a more detailed chronological look at the year ahead.


Overview - The Sun and Venus are in Capricorn as we start this year and Mercury joins them in this sign on 11th January and there is a focus on you and your needs. Between 18th and 20th January both the Sun and Venus shift into Aquarius and as they do you'll be looking at your finances, business ideas, personal values and boosting your self worth. Mercury follows on behind moving into Aquarius on the last day of the month.

Mars defines our actions and as we begin the year in your house of friends and groups alongside Jupiter. These two planets will dictate cooperation with friends, your social life, group activities and team events, community activism and your hope and dreams. All these sectors of you life will be enlivened in January and there is a chance to make a big impression in group situations, especially in sports, games and competitions. There is a change to network far and wide, and this adventurous link up will get you in contact with new people. Your social life may be very lively, and you will out often connecting with friends.

You'll be willing to take a chance on and around 8th of the month, and take more control of events around 16th January. On the 17th January there is a quincunx between Mars and Uranus, and this aspect could see a conflict brewing between your growing need to spend time in group activities and your friendships, and spending time at home with family, loved ones and your commitments there. Something may break or crack in these relationships, in where you will have to choose which one of these parts of your life is most important to you. You may initially fight against being told what to do, however ultimately, a choice will be needed to be made, or you'll have to try and adjust things to accommodate both.

Mars moves into Sagittarius on the 26th and your house of undoing and sacrifice. This isn't one of the easiest of places for Mars to move through because this house more than any other works on a very unconscious level. Mars of course is all about open expression and action, and here Mars' dynamic presence doesn't marry very readily with the subliminal and sacrificial nature of this part of your chart. This might be a time of self-undoing, a time when you will find that even your best efforts will seem to be frustrated and you might become irritable as a result. Situations and people could undermine your efforts, so try and protect your efforts by relying just on your own abilities.

On the 31st January we have the first of five eclipses this year, a lunar eclipse in Leo to start things off. The eclipses this year will have a decidedly financial angle and this one will will centre on money and possessions of other people, owed finances to institutions, debts, investments, plus sex and intimacy and anything shared, the unexplained and secrets, power issues, control and inevitable endings including death and rebirths. These areas of life will be prominent until the summertime eclipse season starts.
