How to Treat your Capricorn

.


Your Capricorn is so much more than a mischievous mountain goat. This playful kid can merrily prance to the top of any hill. Life is a cherished challenge for your Capricorn, who is always prepared for the long haul. His tremendous patience and perseverance is only possible because he also knows how to enjoy life. Picture impish Pan with his alluring flute. To Capricorn, it is all one, great long game.

If you have the good luck to have captured capricious Capi, rest assured that you will never go without. Your Capricorn never gives up - your life will only get better and better. Practical, persevering optimism is built into your Capricorn, along with a strong sense of responsibility and keen powers of observation. Capi goes for the ultimate in personal achievement.... and you are in for one long goat-ride! And I mean that in every sense of the word!

How can you show proper appreciation for your hooved companion? Well, first off, remember that Capricorn is a leader. Either go with the program, or come up with something better. Second, your Capi needs to feel needed. Tell him how successful he is and recognize his monumental efforts. Take notice of every step up the ladder. Third - make your Capricorn take time out for fun and adventure. She might only see in one direction - up! Encourage her to turn her head around from time to time and look at the scenery. Finally, take your Capi's love completely seriously. He might be having a wonderful time, but when it comes to love - there's no funnin'. Capi plays completely for keeps!

Don't be put off if she shows a serious demeanor in public - that's just her way of assuring a spotless reputation. Be his partner in the business of life. Recognize the playfulness in your Capi's heart. Remember that you are blessed with a companion who will get younger and younger with time, and who willl give you many years of devoted attention to your needs.....and good, long lovin', too....no kidding...

How to Treat your Aquarius

.


Aquarians are a slippery lot. A fixed Air sign, it may seem that your water-bearing friend is always on a crusade or a mission. Well he is! When the Aquarian gets an idea in his head - there's no way of getting it out unless you come up with a better one. The Aquarian gets involved in a project, then in the wink of an eye he's off to start another. And every project has new, pressing importance.

So why are Aquarians slippery? Because the moment that Uranian lightning bolt strikes your ingenious friend, she will slip right out of your hands! Your Aquarian has the potential to save the planet, convert all her friends to a new religion, or take off on a dangerous adventure of discovery. And danger doesn't get in her way!

Your Aquarius friend or lover needs the freedom to follow inspiration, ideas and dreams. He thrives on communication and travel, excitement and changes, science and technology, the strange and extraordinary. Aquarius lives and breathes for new experiences. They help him to form his very solid opinions on life. You show your friendship best when you give him every opportunity to expand his mind to the fullest. Also, your Aquarian makes friends wherever she goes, and each one is special in her heart.

Understand that her openness is not a threat to you. Give her the freedom to make new and fascinating connections! Better yet, be a part of the adventure

Feed your Aquarian with respect, friendship, unusual outings, group activities, modern clothes and new ideas. Show interest in his musings. Let her know how bright and intelligent she is. Protect your Aquarian from harm. You will be rewarded with devotion, fun times and a little wildness!!

The Devil in the Tarot

.


The Devil is associated with the Sign Capricorn in the Tarot

~ Attachment ~
Most religious traditions and spiritual practices serve to distract us from worldly cares and direct our attention to a higher social and spiritual vision. We are asked to have faith, to examine our actions, and to behave according to a prescribed set of rules that demands that we help others, and hurt no one. The Devil represents that spirit who does not play by these rules! Now before you take all the following in - there is a positive side to this card as well..

The Devil, man or woman, child or elder - steps on everything and everyone to get where he wants to go, and attain that which he desires. He represents the lowest expression of humanity. What may be shocking to hear is that most of us, at some time in our lives, has been this demon.

What makes the Devil act so selfishly, and without regard for others? This may sound strange - but the Devil lives in FEAR, and Fear is what motivates him. Fear is the opposite of Love. True love gives unconditionally, and trusts without question. The Devil cannot love or trust - he assumes that everything important in his life will fall apart if he does not FORCE his hand, and grasp all that he can. It is the people who live in fear who torment the faithful, and who need our patience and love. They need to get a spritual grip!

The Devil is attached to that which he desires. He is afraid to let go, because he is weak in spirit, and lacking in love and trust. So he enslaves, deceives and acts with violence. He is the rapist, thief, abuser, murderer, spy, torturer and tormentor. He holds people hostage, and conceals his weaknesses with lies. There is no end to the damage he can do - but ultimately, the greatest damage is to himself...

Click the link to read more about this card, and remember, attachment is not in itself evil, and "holding on" can serve an important purpose in the long run... as long as we hurt no one in the process!

The Outer Planets - Chiron, Uranus, Neptune, Pluto and the Lunar Nodes
~^. .^~

.


Uranus in Pisces! ... Uranus will stay in the Sign of the Fish 'til 2011! Spiritual Revolution you say?? Yes, that would describe it well. What can we expect with Uranus in Pisces? Perhaps our ideas about death, sacrifice, the fantastic and impossible, transcendence and service to humanity will take some dramatic and innovative turns. We can hope that humanitarianism will take on new meaning and purpose, and that service to others may become a more integral part of our social order. With this placement, Uranus can become quite reclusive or fanatical. Scientists who may have been hiding out for years in research can bring new and surprising inventions and discoveries into our midst, and Political Messiahs may come out of the woodwork. With Uranus and Neptune in mutual reception - they will rely upon each other more than usual, and herald perhaps a renewed and revolutionary (Uranus) vision for humanity (Neptune) The cost may be a certain amount of turmoil and confusion regarding just where we are going for humanity, and will probably not be without conflict.

Neptune in Aquarius (til 2012) is helping to set our expressions of love and creativity into positive, innovative motion. A change in the prevailing style in movies, fashion and art will be seen in the months and years to come - probably bringing much more in the realm of the unusual, shocking, rebellious, and inter-cultural.

Pluto in Sagittarius speaks of honesty. While Pluto remains here (till 1/25/2008), we are all challenged to be true to ourselves and others, and to accept and nurture the rich diversity of humanity and our animal companions on this earth. The world is our family, and those who are not willing to find, or at least look for the wisdom of the ages - reflected in many ways through many religions, traditions and philosophies - will surely suffer a crisis of faith.

Pluto is on the Sagittarius/Capricorn cusp from 1/26/08 until 6/14/08, harboring in a new Plutonian era of change in our social institutions, government and power structures. The very fabric of society may begin to be re-woven - these are exciting times!! With Pluto entering Capricorn accompanied by Venus and Jupiter, we may indeed feel blessed with good fortune, harmony and high ideals!

The powerful Neptune/Pluto septile, exact on Dec 1, 2006 and Feb. 21, 2007 will last (going in and out of close orb) into 2011! For those of us who are very creative, tremendous inspiration can bring influential, explosive, mind-blowing creations. In love - the potential for making inspired changes is heightened - yet there also exists the possibility of getting lost in confusion. Avoid falling into a pit of despair, or indulging in self-destructive activities. Getting nowhere fast? Look for Creative and Healthy, Inspired, Loving outlets to save your skin! Get involved in helping others.... this is especially important now! Neptune/Pluto can bring a fanaticism wthat has not been seen since the last such aspect at the beginning of WWII. Yet - this aspect is also very positive for creating lasting, humanitarian changes throughout the world.

The North and South Nodes are now on the Aquarius/Leo axis ('til 8/21/09). This node placement brings positive connections based on love for humanity and the quest for social equality, along with healing in the area of self-love and love for loyalty's sake. This is a good time to examine our motives, use our egos wisely, and take the high road - or face karmic consequences!

Chiron in Aquarius... This archetype of human compassion will be passing nonstop through Aquarius from January 06 til Feb. 2011, bringing a period of higher inspiration in the realm of healing. We may look forward to greater cooperation worldwide in the healing sciences, and perhaps going back to tradition - those time honored ways that our ancestors enjoyed and practiced in harmony with nature. Perhaps we may find more and more "health" foods (ie unaltered and unprocessed) on our grocery shelves, greater acceptance of mind-body healing approaches, and some brave new ideas to surface, too.

Mewsings from Venus & Mars... January 2008

Mars is retrograde in Gemini (from 1/1 until 3/5/08 when the red planet is back again in Cancer). This placement for Mars brings the ability to multi-task, and a greater focus on our communications, community and education. For lovers who are very jealous or possessive, this can be a challenging time. It will be important to honor responsibilities, keep it real and honest, and not jump to conclusions!

Venus in Sagittarius until 1/25 is opposite Mars (by sign placement, and exactly on 1/19-20), and brings a need for freedom, honesty and wisdom. All month long, couples can expect joy, optimism, humor, great ideas and good times! Exploring differences honestly can bring greater awareness and respect.

Venus in Capricorn 1/25 to 2/17 is a bit more somber, likes to take charge, and wants to make sure things are moving forward. Lovers may tend to be more earthy, demonstrative and playful in private, yet very proper in public.

 
FUTURE FORECAST FOR LOVE
The first week in January, Mars opposes Pluto (exact 1/2), Jupiter quintiles Uranus, and Venus quintiles Neptune and squares Saturn, bringing strong sexual energy, the will and desire to create change, and ample imagination and determination to make big things happen. It will be important to be especially aware and careful not to antagonize, take unnecessary risks, or push too hard.

During the second and third week in January, Mars quintiles Saturn, Jupiter octiles Neptune, and Venus sextiles Chiron/Neptune and squares Uranus People who are earnest about getting things done will get them done with a vengeance, and use every resource and ounce of creative and intellectual energy they can muster. Interesting things can happen, and amazing connections can be made!

during the fourth week, Venus conjuncts Pluto/Jupiter, opposes Mars and quintiles Uranus, among many other Venus contacts. Feminine power, spiritual and intellectual healing forces, imagination and hope will be strong - and some may be bowled over with change and renewal.

~ The Big Guys ~
Jupiter in Capricorn til 1/5/09 will help set the stage for societal changes, and perhaps help to broaden the horizons of our policy makers and power brokers. This can be a year of making great leaps forward, taking chances, and making new ways the status quo.

Saturn in Virgo 'til July 21, 2010 brings our focus to the things of the earth.. the cleanliness and purity of our physical environment. These coming years can bring a stronger sense of purpose and responsibility within our social institutions, government and authority figures regarding the sanctity and protection of our mother earth. A wonderful time this can be!! Let's feel our earth permeating society, and becoming the central focus for all we do!
