Capricorn: The Seagoat
Capricorn: The Seagoat
For the week of Monday, March 12, 2012
Something we often do because we are human is focus on the bad times and the things that go wrong. We forget, at that moment, all the things that go right for us, all the good times we’ve had. My dad always used to say that nothing bad happens that isn’t for a good reason. Many years after his death — and hearing this all my life — I still think of that and how right he was. Right now you may be focusing on the things that didn’t go well for you recently, dear Capricorn — and I don’t blame you — but your time would be better spent thinking about all the good in your life, the things that did go well, and all the blessings you have around you. Think on that.
This week, we have Mercury going Retrograde on Monday, March 12th, the same day a Grand Trine appears in the sky, which is the best aspect possible. The Full Moon of March 8th, brings you great energy, minus or plus four days, and will make its energy available to you. There are four planets forming this Grand Trine and will help you in magnificent, even surprising ways. You are an earth sign and the four planets that make up the Grand Trine are all in earth signs, too, which brings you a lot more help than you can imagine right now. These planets will be in top form on March 12th, 13th, and 14th, which should immediately begin to indicate what areas of your life they are going to help you with including new ideas for ways to deal with your current challenges.
Anything you’ve been working to complete, anything you’ve been trying to finalize, I hope you got done by March 9th. Mercury’s Retrograde phase beginning the 12th means things will not go as smoothly as prior to that date. The Full Moon on the 8th, like all Full Moons, brings things to a culmination point, to a head, you get it. After the Full Moon, and possibly up to four days later, you still have the benefit of this Full Moon influence but after that the Moon, of course, begins to wane as we head toward the New Moon. This Full Moon served to light up the sky and all the good things the Grand Trine will bring to you! This Full Moon was in your ninth house of travels so if you took a little jaunt over that weekend you’d have done yourself some good. Some people who cannot travel, can’t afford to, have children to care for, etc., make time to create story boards of places they’d like to travel to, read magazines that inspire vacations — anything that you’d like to do that involves travel would be good to at least visualize at this time. This travel influence could also speak of something you’re working on that includes people in foreign or far away places. Distance learning would be included in this same area of influence so if you’re considering furthering or continuing your education, keep planning on it because that will work well for you, too.
Anything pertaining to law and any legal matters you are dealing with would be a good time to try to settle and if you didn’t get that done by March 9th, I’d like to advise you to hold off making decisions or signing contracts, agreements, making verbal agreements (which are often just as binding) until mid to late April. Again, that is if you were not able to reach a settlement before the 9th. Just wait — things will work out better for you in the long run, anyway.
Love, love, and more love on your mind, Capricorn? This area of your life is lit up, too! The fifth house rules just that and creative efforts so if you’ve been dreaming of doing something creative that you love it’s also time to think more about that because the Grand Trine will help you here, too. The indications are, to me, that this year is the year when you could find true love. Venus will dance with Taurus in your fifth house and bringing you good news in the area of romance. March 13th would be the high point of this influence and you may find your mind wandering to these things we dream about including finding the right, even perfect person. It is possible now, dear Capricorn, that you find the love of your life this year, 2012. Remember though that you can’t find love if you’re not out and about and love can’t find you if you’re hiding in your little house. So please understand that it’s up to you to make things happen including to make yourself available for other people to know you’re looking for true love! For those trying to conceive a baby, this month is also well aspected for you!
Contemplate: Career and legal matters on your mind should be finalized if at all possible by March 9th and no later, if at all possible. Anything you agree to now will be subject to the usual delays and misunderstandings Mercury Retrograde usually brings but it’s all over April 4th and a week or two later you will see things start moving again. Of course, if you cannot delay signing or agreeing to something for whatever reason out of your control, just be careful and understand what you are signing. In matters of love, 2012 promises, with the help of the Grand Trine, to be the year you could finally find the one true love you have wished for. God bless and get out there, Capricorn!

Settling isn’t your forte, Capricorn, in fact — you hate it! But what if I told you that right now, settling will get you what you actually wanted in the first place? Hear me out on this: sometimes we feel pressured to make a decision on something that we know we didn’t want. Sometimes we feel we have to make a decision when we aren’t ready to — and if that’s the case and you are currently being presented with options that are none to your liking I am here to announce that I want you to make a decision and choose the best option from all the options that you do not currently like at all. I know it sounds crazy but I’m telling you that right now it feels like settling but settling is what you can call it if you like. I prefer to think of it like just another move in a chess game that may not be the one you want to make but you are going to make a move, anyway, knowing that the next person may make a bad move. I know you’re thinking that this sounds nuts but if you thinking about it the way I’m writing it, as if it were an instruction, follow it. There are some options out there that you don’t like and rather than making no choice I’m telling you to choose right now. Just choose. It’s nothing unlike having a hat full of slips of paper and me telling you that this is a game you do not like, you may not get anything you want, but you could end up with something very different from what you expect. Take my advice: just settle if that’s what you’d like to call it and leave it at that.
Contemplate: Sometimes making a decision, choosing among options that you don’t like at all, is necessary and this is one of those times, Capricorn, as later this choice will lead to exactly what you want. It will all make sense later. Good luck and remember blind faith, my friend! God bless!

Afraid of the future much, Capricorn? Well, don’t look now — it’s coming right toward you! I mean that in the best possible way, Cap! Though the future is on the way you somehow still feel confused about a recent interaction with someone you possibly wanted to impress. No worries, is the astrological flux in weather and it’s really not you. Leave that situation well enough alone and let it resolve itself, for starters. You are getting or should be getting good feedback in other areas so don’t let this bother you much right now — try to push that recent interaction aside. You’re thinking and rethinking too much again and that’s only going to make you feel tired and confused. You cannot solve a puzzle that has no solution at this time, right? There you go. It may sound confusing what I’m going to write but just work with me: you are changing and everything is changing around you. What you used to think, what you knew, no longer applies now — it’s all changing — the past is of no value at all. That should leave you with a blank slate in all ways. You’re considering what’s important to you, what is of value, what you have at your disposal. You sense these changes and aren’t sure which way to proceed though options and the need to think on your feet continue to happen around you, at you, from all directions, from all sides — my suggestion is that you just literally go with the flow as uncomfortable as that seems. There are shake ups and changes, then changes and shake ups but they are going to work for you in the long run, trust me. You feel like you have to switch gears every five minutes and that’s not far from the truth and you do not like it much at all! Somehow though, you are at peace with it in a way, perhaps thinking, “Whatever…” and that’s alright, and not a bad idea. You recognize some of this journey, even most of it, is one you take on your own. That you travel alone does not daunt you but you’d rather have a clearer idea of where you’re going, right? How about that little inner sense of knowing that although you don’t really know what’s going on or where you’re going feels…right? There you go! It feels right because it IS right and soon more clarity will come to you if you just allow whatever’s changing to do so without your interference. This trend will continue a few weeks so become comfortable in this discomfort. Full moon tomorrow brings yet another shift and that’s okay, too. You’re interested in figuring things out like relationship and love affairs and you would do well to relax and enjoy the journey without worrying about the destination for now. Just let go, Capricorn, go with the flow wherever it goes. For now.
Contemplate: This is one of those times where there is no clear definition of future. Let go, let God, relax, and just enjoy the ride, Capricorn.

Change is not easy, Capricorn, and especially difficult for you. You fear what change means, brings, and when there are others that are going to be affected will say or do. But, what if I tell you that the changes you are contemplated are for your own good AND the greater good? What if I told you that this is your purpose now, to change, to enable the change, and to be the change that needs to take place? I would like to think that you would take advantage of this change and go with it. You fear the backlash of change. Maybe you’re right and there will be some kind of backlash but what if you do nothing — will you be happy with yourself? If I were you I’d embrace the change and consider that it’s not likely going to be as bad as you think. I don’t know how much you can tolerate but I can say that I know Capricorn is a strong sign and can overcome just about anything they choose to.
Maybe these changes need to take place in your workplace, maybe some attitudes needs to be checked and you feel you’re the best person to do this — but you fear, understandably so. Perhaps these changes are in your own home and those involved or around you on a closer than usual level — but you fear because it could disrupt the peace of your home and family life. Also, your own attitudes about many things need to be changed and you fear those changes you recognize you need to make — you fear not what you have to do but what you may become, someone you feel you may not recognize or like. But what if you sit atop your fear: you may feel more in control but can you won’t feel very good about yourself and may even start to dislike yourself and that’s not good.
I want you to contemplate something, Capricorn: what if you found out there are others hoping you will be the one to make these changes — would you feel pressured or would you feel confirmation, affirmation? I need you to know that there are others counting on you to do it, start the process, come what may, because they too want things to change as much as you do.
Capricorn, you are at a time in your life where you want change and are actually thinking about all of this on your own. But if you don’t put your full effort into this, if you stay stuck in your ways and habits, patterns, and behaviors, it will seemingly feel comfortable but will you be really? You’re not being asked to change who you are, you’re just being advised to change things while maintaining who you are and while becoming who you should be.
The new moon of the 22nd is bringing you a fresh perspective where you will see things clearly now. You want to feel safe and secure, you want your life secure and comfortable, your finances comfortable, and your family and home life protected, secured. The next few months are going to demonstrate where change needs to take place and you will able to identify what these changes that need to take place. All of these things are going to help you create the life that you really want, so start now, Capricorn.
Contemplate: Change is good, Capricorn, and at times it is uncomfortable. But keep in mind that change is also necessary and better for you in the long run.

We walk through life together on what I see as many paths: some parallel, some perpendicular to ours, and sometimes we seemingly walk paths on different planets. The point is we are all on one path or another no matter how similar or dissimilar. What this means is we are all similar, different, and that’s what makes us each interesting to the other. You can be very rigid in your thinking, Capricorn, but just because someone else is not like you or is your opposite does not mean they are not worthwhile to know. While all kinds of relationships exist, we all know that sometimes opposites attract: are you having a hard time getting along with someone because of their difference? Are you literally turning down a person or an opportunity because you don’t necessarily like what the next person has to say or don’t like what the situation appears to offer? It’s not a good thing, Capricorn, to reject someone just because they are different and may not agree with you or the other way around. There is someone valuable and good for you in either a relationship or friendship that would be very sad to lose over nothing more than a difference of opinion.
Contemplate: Don’t drop someone from your life just because you’re irritable. Pick up where you left off before you started discussing nonsense.

Capricorn, my friend, you so often forget that not everything can be rationalized that you rationalize yourself half to death. You almost constantly worry and obsess to the point it affects your health. You don’t pay attention to the astrological weather because it’s not logical to you. But what’s logical about worry, Cappy? What’s logical about straining your mind to the breaking point? In the dark, children fear everything about their rooms that even the blankets become quick sand or traps. Children fear everything in the darkness including their own beloved toys. They only calm down when mother or father turns on the light only to prove what they see in dark is the same thing they pay no attention to during day. Perhaps they only calm for a few minutes at a time only to fear the same things they did with the lights on. Is that where you’re at right now, Capricorn, stuck in the dark fearing the same things you practically trip over in the light? There’s no one that can rationalize fear, Capricorn, if it’s unjustified. What the next person will tell you is you’re imagination is over active (again) and you’re making yourself crazy. You feel justified, somehow, in what you fear and that’s where you contradict yourself! I just told you that you rationalize constantly, even to the point of making everyone ELSE crazy, so why can’t you rationalize your fears away? Listen, not everything in life is scary but fearing everything is scary as Hell on fire, to me. What you need to do is realize that there’s much ado about nothing and there’s nothing much to fear. You may be coming down with a cold or flu — you likely are doing this to yourself — and you may just be tired of one too many sleepless nights (and that’s because you’re afraid of the lamp on the table these days!). Settle down, little porcupine! I mean, CAPRICORN! There’s nothing wrong and it just may be the weather! You’ll be alright: go on and sleep with the light on if it gets you one good night of sleep. The full moon in Cancer is behind you — the crazies are safely locked away in the psych ward — and God is with you, angels keep watch over you, and you just need a little rest!
Contemplate: What you fear isn’t even real: see “over active imagination”. You’ll be alright!

Who died and made you caretaker, Capricorn? Someone’s yanking on your emotional chains again and this time you would do well to let others handle their own mistakes, messes, and affairs. While it’s lovely that you love to save people, you cannot save everyone and have anything left over for yourself. You often take the role of mother or father — or both! — when people need to learn something that you cannot possibly teach them. The best way to teach anyone anything, like a good parent knows, is sometimes consequences are rough but there is lesson in them. Just as we often let a child touch something hot to know what hot feels like, you aren’t doing anything but enabling the next person and you can be sure they will keep asking you for help because that’s easier than helping themselves. This person is nothing but a user at times and while you don’t want to believe that, you should learn something yourself. This person could be exhausting you mentally, physically, emotionally, or even financially so how much more are you willing to give away, leaving little for yourself? You can offer advice if you have time. You can offer and ear if you’ve energy enough. But when a person is draining you, there’s your sign. I’ve been there many times myself, helping, helping, over and over while the next person learns nothing except that I’ll save them every time. If I, a Scorpio, have learned that I can’t do for others if it takes away from me, mine, or my mental health, you would be wise to just say no, let the chips fall where they may, because no one who cares about you would drag you down with them. You’re no emotional punching bag, either, so go ahead and even warn that person that you cannot possibly continue enabling his or her pattern. Walk away. The full moon in Cancer may make you feel more drained than usual so go ahead and stop that leak before this person makes you sick.
Contemplate: YOU first.
