An Open Letter To Capricorn For July 2021
I hope my letter finds you well and eager to capitalize upon whatever opportunities your stars foretell. Capricorn the Goat has the dogged determination required to climb any mountain or endure almost any hardship imaginable. This ability makes you a very special person indeed. However, I'm not saying you don't experience anxiety or succumb to long-term stress and fatigue. Only comic-book heroes and heroins can do that. You are no different from the rest of us. Consequently, because you inhabit the real world, you are subject to all the emotions every other member of the human family feels. The difference is that when events knock you sideways, you regain your balance — pause to consider all your options — then take appropriate action to address the situation. And what's more: you usually succeed!
Younger Capricorn are always at a disadvantage because, obviously, this might be their first taste of adversity. Conversely, if you are older and more mature, then you have your experience to fall back on. Always bear in mind the fact that Life is a learning curve, and you won't always get things right first time. It's OK to make mistakes, but clever Capricorns always try to learn from them. That done, just get up and dust yourself down and "keep on, keeping on!", so to speak. There's no reason why you should lose your self-confidence. Fear not; you can do it; you can make the necessary changes required to enjoy life to the full. It might help if you think of it this way: the past is a different country. And you don't live there any more!
In true Capricorn fashion, your main concern for the week is your continued long-term security. Now, I don't mean to imply you are acting in a self-centred or parsimonious manner, just the opposite in fact. Some of my Capricorn friends will be motivated by a desire to nurture, cherish and protect their partner come hell or high water. Many more, will become increasingly sensitive to the emotional needs of their own children and step-children.
Perhaps you are one of the numerous Capricorns who want to build a protective "brick-wall" around your family, especially if you are currently trapped in a potentially negative situation. You only want the best for them. However, having said that, you must avoid becoming partisan. They won't forgive you for taking sides. Indeed, it might require the Wisdom of Solomon to solve the growing dispute. Nevertheless, it will be worth the effort. Remember, family-life is seldom tranquil and uneventful, so try to remain philosophical about it all. In all probably, it will boil down to the lack of experience or maturity of someone involved. But as my old Dad used to say to me: "you don't get old heads on young shoulders!".
Somebody is making waves in your social circle. In fact, they are doing their best to test the limits of your patience and self-control. The individual craving your attention the most could be a highly-strung creative type who has to be spoon-fed ladles of complements and adoration on a 24x7 basis. Under normal circumstances you'd know how to respond to their demands and take it all in your stride, but this week it's different. Why? Perhaps it's something to do with the Mars and Venus energies currently stirring up your emotions and putting sex high on your personal agenda. Indeed, your passions could prove an itch just too powerful to ignore. Scratch you must, and scratch you will. Surprisingly, you might have the hots for the very person displaying the emotional tantrums. This could place you on the horns of a dilemma. Do you show them the door if it means the only thing you are going to embrace in the near future is celibacy? That's for you to decide because it is your life, and you are in the only one in the driver's seat!
Making plans to outwit somebody you see as a competitor or an opponent is uppermost in your mind this week. However, let me stress that you have been extremely patient and slow to anger with this person. You have given them every opportunity possible to amend their ways or turn over a new leaf, so to speak. You are not motivated by malice, but simply want them to end some potentially self-destructive behaviour or way of thinking. Not only that, but you can see where it possibly leads, and you are simply trying to avert future problems. However, you might just as well talk to a brick wall for all the good it is doing. You are almost at your wit's end and seek only what is best for everybody in the long run. Are you getting any thanks for it? Not a chance.
The Sun makes a glorious trine aspect to Neptune. This potentially peace inducing contact will help you through testing events. You might seek solace in stolen moments of quiet reflection and prayer. Other Capricorn may turn to their local parish priest or vicar. While many more will return to the fold of the Spiritualism. This is a potentially auspicious time to consult a psychic medium for advice, especially over a matrimonial issue. However, speaking of affairs of the heart; Venus and Neptune energy combine to stimulate your desire both to give and receive love. While Mars simultaneously gives you the courage to make the first move. In short, things look good for love and romance. Although it might be at the experience of one friendship that has finally run its course and is no longer fit for purpose.
Indeed, Sun and a purgative Pluto urge you to reconsider your position over some gigantic issues. Things have been stacking up a bit recently and many of my readers might be thinking of clearing out the attic, so to speak. You know the old sating "you can't make an omelette without breaking a few eggs"; well decision time might be here. You'll know deep-down in your heart if the hat fits. It's all up to you, really.
Indeed, this week could be characterized by incidents of transformative change. Perhaps you'll branch out on your own and grasp the levers of power and self-determination with both hands. You are more than capable of living life in the fast lane and carving out a reputation for yourself. Money, wealth and fame are aspirations common to the majority of Capricorn born. Perhaps it's your turn to stand on the threshold of a potentially rewarding future and experience the butterflies-in-the-tummy moment that comes with it.
If I was asked to characterize this week in as few words as possible, I would plump for "Romance; Adventure and Family Fun". But that doesn't tell the whole story, of course. Most Capricorn are going to feel more self-confident in themselves as they get on top of some shared emotional/sexual issues and celebrate their new-found harmony with a few early nights, if you catch my drift. New romantic relationships might be formed by those Capricorn especially keen to end their lonely existence, while those in established relationships will rediscover some of the old magic that made them fall in love in the first place. Additionally, Jupiter and Venus negotiate a respectful harmony with each other; the Sun is in a wide trine aspect to Neptune, while simultaneously offering an olive-branch to both the Lesser and Greater Benific; and Mars and Venus engage in a potentially passionate embrace. It's all looking good.
Having said that, I have to concede some astrological aspects are challenging and there might be the odd hiccup if your Natal Horoscope is at odds with the current planetary alignments. Therefore, — in response — a few of my Capricorn readers may accuse me of looking at the stars through rose-tinted glasses — and you might be right — but I hope I'll be near the mark for most of you. As a general rule of thumb, I think most Capricorn will have good reason to be optimistic. I can only cross my fingers and wish you all well. And to those of you who feel I got it wrong, I can only apologize. I'm only human: and who wants to be the bringer of bad news? "Look on the bright side" is my motto.
Well, that's it from me for this letter. Until I write again, "Take care of yourselves and each other!" Finally, keep listening to the scientists and remember: hands, face, space and last but not least: ventilate enclosed spaces. Bye!
