Capricorn is certainly one of the most responsible signs of the Zodiac.

This Saturn-ruled sign looks at life through power-rimmed glasses. So this 10th sign of the Zodiac seeks the power of authority and leadership.

A Capricorn wants to accomplish honors in their career – and sometimes neglect – in an all out effort to climb the ladder of success.

In seeking a partner in life, the Capricorn seeks someone who will support and understand their goals of success and be an asset to them.

Because a Capricorn is so serious in the workplace, they often ignore the social scene. This is because of their need to be successful in the marketplace. This sign needs to be a leader and has all the skills to accomplish this goal.

Certainly anyone born this week is a kind and loving soul, but they are also mighty interested in the power of success.


People born this week: Mel Gibson, Jan. 3, 1956; Patty Loveless, Jan. 4, 1957; Diane Keaton, Jan. 5, 1946; rapper Mike Jones, Jan. 6, 1981; Nicolas Cage, Jan. 7, 1964; Stephen Hawking, Jan. 8, 1942; Joan Baez, Jan. 9, 1941; and Pat Benatar, Jan. 10, 1953.


Here we are in a New Year and also this week is the time of a new moon. So, if you have some New Year resolutions you really want to keep, this is a good week to start. The very best day for the new start is next Thursday, Jan. 9. The moon will be in practical Taurus and it will be making good aspects to both Neptune and Pluto, making it a perfect day for new starts.


Aries (March 21 to April 20) As both Mars and Uranus remain strong in the air surrounding Aries, it would be smart to investigate every project before signing your name. You do that and you can avoid future problems. By checking everything you will be smarter than anyone asking for your support –and that is an advantage in your fast lane life.

Taurus (April 21 to May 20) Life should be settling into a calmer term now, but remember Saturn is still in Scorpio opposite your Sun. That means you need to reflect on responsibility and discipline. New relationships could cross your path, but take some time before letting anyone new into your inner circle. In that way you have the upper hand and you love that.

Gemini (May 21 to June 20) This is a good time to review your goals and find what it is you really want to accomplish in the coming year. Mars is now making nice aspects to your sun so look for a good change in your agenda. It could include a new relationship. Just try listening to your inner voice before saying “yes.” Remember, you are in the driver’s seat this time.

Cancer (June 21 to July 20) You have a choice now since Jupiter is in Cancer. This is good for you, but then Mars and Uranus are making aspects that mean some action that will bring change. So have Plan A and B ready just in case. The last thing you think would happen, in the romance department, could happen shortly. So give all newcomers in your life now a second look.

Leo (July 21 to Aug. 20) If you get yourself out in the world, you will meet some interesting and attractive people now. As you work yourself through a new lifestyle avoid taking anything too personally. In that way you will have a much better time with the new pals coming into your life. This is a good time for you so take advantage of it and dance the dance.

Virgo (Aug. 21 to Sept. 20) With the pressure of the changes taking place in your life try taking some time out and enjoy. A longtime relationship will work if you just cool the stress and enjoy the trip. A new opportunity in your work environment is just what you should be looking at now. It means more control and money.

Libra (Sept. 21 to Oct. 20) As you prepare for the New Year festivities be sure you allow time for some old friends. It may not look like some change is needed, but it is headed your way and will offer you a golden opportunity to expand your horizons. Just avoid the negative and stay away from arguments. For you it is a waste of time and energy.

Scorpio (Oct. 21 to Nov. 20) Any open wounds you may still carry around should be dropped as soon as possible. Once you let go of the past, the future will really blossom. A relationship could turn around and be the perfect one for you now. So don’t give up no matter how it appears. You are in control, so stay there and let things just happen. It will turn in your favor.

Sagittarius (Nov. 21 to Dec. 20) There is no reason to believe that the risk you took last year won’t pay off well for you. Just keep doing what you are doing and let others do the same. Don’t get caught up in confusion on your new direction. You are now discovering the real you. And sometimes it is a surprise.

Capricorn (Dec. 21 to Jan. 20) Life is changing for you through the grace of Pluto. If you cannot see it on the exterior, then look at your mind that is changing. There is a saying, “Change your thinking, change your life.” That sums up what is happening with you. Look for some new relationships, that could help you in your present journey, to show up soon.

Aquarius (Jan. 21 to Feb. 20) If you continue to understand that your spiritual journey includes giving with no thought of thank you then you are cool. It is a hard lesson, but well worth learning. A new relationship is about to appear in your life and if you wish to enjoy it, say so soon. An old pal thinks of you but never has time to be in touch. So you call.

Pisces (Feb. 21 to March 20) A new spiritual trip is just what you need as you continue living with Neptune. Your psychic skills should be improving and once you appreciate them, more will develop. As creative as you are, it is time to take on a new project that will really show off your skills. A new friend will prove to be a benefit.
