Capricorn season starts on December 21, the same day that winter officially arrives. Capricorn is all about hard work and this is a time for setting goals for the future. It’s no coincidence that this is the month that we set New Year resolutions. Capricorn has the gumption to see thing through with their non stop energy. Capricorn is an Earth sign and are known as pioneers and leaders, but they can take this too far at times. Work hard during this time, but know when to take down time too, slow and steady should be your motto. That isn’t to say that you can’t dream big, but try to focus on one thing at a time and have a plan for long term. If that seems boring, bear in mind that Capricorn is the architect and is focused on building something that will bring lasting success, the fun parts will come later. You know what they say though, ‘all work and no play, make Jack a dull boy’, despite the theme, make sure to take time to have fun and stay active, after all, all that hard work deserves to be rewarded.
Capricorn’s ruling Tarot Card is the Devil.
The Devil card is frequently about facing what you fear most as well as a possible obsession with money and power. Capricorn tends to be the most hard working sign of the Zodiac and the devil warns that if you fear the success you are capable of, you will unconsciously self sabotage and become what you fear most. The Devil shows that if you become aware of this fear and take control of it, you are able to walk away from the fear and embrace your success.
