Even if you think that you know best, any attempts to manipulate the thoughts or actions of others today could backfire. If you feel that you've been compelled into doing something you don't feel right about, hold your ground and get on with what needs to be gotten on with. Start by downloading my free list of the 2018 New and Full Moons - you can do some amazing things with it, including timing your New and Full rituals and ceremonies, launching new projects and doing forgiveness work to release negativity which inevitably builds up.
You're a natural-born power sign, but right now, it's all ramping up. As they say, with great power comes big responsibility, though. So take a look at your life and see where you know you need to change your behaviour, if you want to be on course to make your dreams come true. It's going to take a lot of restraint on your part, but you really can turn 2018 into a year to remember for all the right reasons.

Your year is off to a powerful start as Venus, Pluto, the Sun, and Saturn - the ruler of your sign - are all lined up in Capricorn. This is a lot of planets to have in your sign!
Towards the middle of the month this is amplified as Pluto, the Sun and Venus join forces with Mars and Jupiter to provide an energy boost right when you need it most.It's is a time when faith and power work hand-in-hand to help you achieve your goals at home or school or work. It's not so much about what you know, as what you believe that you know.
Mercury joins the party in Capricorn on January 12, and meets up with serious Saturn the following day. If you haven't already made any resolutions for 2018, use this energy to aim higher and wider than you might normally have thought is possible. The period between January 10 and 19 have the potential to be power days for you.
The Full Moon on January 2 shines a spotlight on your relationships. Are you giving too much of yourself away in your partnerships? Perhaps you're not giving enough. Correcting the imbalances - or perceived imbalances - can help bring more satisfaction to this part of life. Consider also how collaboration with like-minded people can help you achieve your goals.
Work and play are also under scrutiny at this time. Don't forget to step away from the books or the desk every so often to recharge your batteries and connect with your nearest and dearest.
January 17's New Moon in your sign is your opportunity to revamp your image or set intentions regarding self- improvement. You are the most important project that you'll be working on this year, so ensure that the changes you intend to make are realistic, practical, and achievable. As a Capricorn, you know better than most signs that the key to success is through small and repeatable steps.
If you meet someone who's driven and seems to have it together, who can keep their cool in the middle of mayhem, who's reserved but hot, odds are they are Capricorn. Yes, you are the ambitious one, the realistic one and the one who keeps his or her head on his or her shoulders while the rest are losing theirs.
You are ruled by Saturn, who is the teacher of the zodiac. This doesn't mean that you are 100% bound to be a teacher yourself. But it does indicate that you are someone who can teach others lessons and also someone who learns by the lessons life teaches you. You have the ability to see the facts of a situation and to face up to them. Eg: Female Caps don't need to read that book "He's just not that into you". You not only KNOW when someone isn't into you, you're not afraid to admit it to yourself either (unlike many other signs who just keep hoping and wishing forever, wasting time as life slips by...)
A setback doesn't seem like the end of the world to you and even bad news is something you can deal with. It's far better to work with the truth than to live in some airy-fairy floaty world - for Capricorns. Some say you're a tad cold, but as far as you can see, there's enough mushy stuff in the world without you blathering as well! You are also the sign that relates most to the passage of time. You are aware and respectful of the past and you welcome change because you know it's progress. Some would see your ability to let the past go as cool bordering on cold. That's their lookout. You know better that the past is indeed over and the present and future is what counts. You are down to earth and an Earth sign for that matter and you are not at all afraid of taking on responsibilities. But it's not all work and building and constructive growth. Capricorns are as soft and mushy inside as the next human being, and don't let anyone tell you otherwise!
Avoid allowing your great grip on reality to translate into drudgery. Yes, only tangible results count, but that doesn't mean we shouldn't applaud efforts that go awry. As a Cardinal sign, you are one of the leaders of the zodiac. It's your level head and wisdom that makes you that. Your ability to work consistently towards any goal also helps. Capricorns help the rest of us stay real.
