- 18-MONTH KARMIC PHASE: Nov. 8, 2018 to May 5, 2020
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
The 18 months to May 2020 urge you to seek advice, to negotiate, to sign contracts, relocate, form partnerships and relationships in love and business, to deal with the public, and generally, to go out from yourself toward others, toward opportunities, toward new, fresh horizons. Deal with strangers, increase your contacts. Seek publicity and fame.
Two exceptions: 1) if you project a surly character, your “fame” will be negative; and 2) —it’s a long one. If your birth chart counsels against partnerships in general, these 18 months somewhat “neutralize” that effect, and give you a “window” in which to form a bond. (And a window through which you can see why partnerships did not work in the past.)
(Many of your 2019 opportunities, BTW, will lie in governmental, administrative, institutional or other bureaucratic situations. This might be a second step to a promotion or career boost 2 years ago — 2017.)
During these 18 months, avoid extreme independence, self-reliance, or withdrawal urges. (An exception is a scheduled spa retreat or “recuperation vacation,” especially favoured both Decembers.)
Don’t force your agenda on others. Eschew self-pity. If you feel knocked around by life, consider how your past actions/attitudes have brought you to this pass. Realize that self-pity, anger toward others, self-criticism, vanity, are merely ways to separate yourself from others. They are the independence temptation in disguise, during a phase in which independence is your Achilles heel.
One of the best ways to improve difficult luck (karma) during this period is to forgive yourself. Then see that any bad luck (now) tends to be payback for any wrong turns/wrong-doing during the last 17 years. This way, if bad luck comes, accept it as fair payment, pick yourself up, smile, and march forward.
Laugh at yourself, open your arms and heart to others, and you’ll do fine. Make efforts to understand where others are coming from, their desires and needs, and why they see a situation differently than you do. Several good, “blessed” people can enter your sphere now. Those who do newly enter, will tend to be good for you, even 20 years from now. Welcome them!
❤️❤️ CAPRICORN: Dec. 22-Jan. 19
2019 won’t be your year to win big prizes or to attract fawning crowds. Instead, this year offers you a much-needed and deeply rejuvenating rest, a breathing space. Quietude comes easily — use it to ponder your life. How did you get to this point, and where do you go from here?
You’re in the middle of a 14-year phase that has 3 goals: 1) transform you, from head to toe; 2) clear out your social circle, deleting old relations and bringing new ones; and 3) altering or entirely changing your life goals. This process, though it might leave you wondering or “out of the swim” for awhile, will ultimately prove to be a good one, refreshing you, and bathing your life with newness. 2019 is an excellent time to contemplate this process, and to quietly tinker with your direction.
Civil servants, administrative and institutional workers loom large from January to November. So do agents, advisors, and health workers. All these could surprise you with their generosity. It’s a great time to change your health habits, or your medication. Pondering, meditation, spiritual and charitable pursuits will bless you.
All year, seek to join others — in mutual ventures and in affection. If you, for instance, ask someone for a romantic date and they say no, you’ll still feel a nice glow of satisfaction because you had the courage to try. Others, even if they turn you down, will do so graciously, even affectionately. Now to May 2020, interdependence will lead you to smooth progress, while independence can inexplicably frustrate you.
You’re energetic and effective January/Feb. Your home demands attention. Romance, beauty, pleasure or self-expression become a driving force in March. This month kicks off a 7-year phase of sudden, unpredictable events in all these areas (romance, beauty, et al). Money or possessions (or possessiveness) will be inextricably tied to love.
You might begin what appears to be a casual, sensual affair; but it can become a full-fledged amour. Love is most favoured in January (you’re attractive), May (perhaps with a co-worker), July (exciting meeting and deeply sexual urges), September (gentle, mellow love) and November (friendly flirting, maybe an old flame).
Higher-ups are snarky, impatient and short-tempered October/November, so be diplomatic. You might end one job to embrace another. Strictly avoid legal hassles mid-August to early October.
