Capricorn Forecast for December 2014
By Susan Miller
This month holds a big surprise. For two years, Saturn has been in Scorpio and limiting your social life. Now, Saturn will move into Sagittarius on December 23 and change the whole look and feel of your private life, just in time for the start of the New Year.
You had hosted Saturn in your eleventh house of hopes and wishes since October 2012, so when Saturn departs later this month, you will likely notice the difference almost immediately. Having Saturn in this house is a bit of an astrological oxymoron, for the eleventh house is all about fun, friendship, and making new connections, but Saturn is all about hard work, not play, With Saturn in this house, you may have been frustrated by not being able to see your friends as often as you would have liked. Your friends were preoccupied, and a close friend may have moved away or changed his/her lifestyle, such as to get married, giving the two of you less in common. The frustration may have been more pronounced if you moved to a new city, for you may have had problems making new friends. All this will change now, and your social life will take on new vibrancy.
It was not all bad news with Saturn over the past two years. The upside of hosting Saturn in the eleventh house is that you may have made the acquaintance of an older person who took you under his or her wing, and advised you on a variety of matters, but especially ones that centered on your career. This person might have become a mentor to you, and if so, your association with this person was very positive, helping you succeed in areas you could not have done without the advice you received.
Saturn in this house also calls for sacrifice at times, so you may have worked very hard to help a humanitarian or community project, and in so doing made a difference to many others. Additionally, Saturn teaches us to take on leadership roles, and if you did on behalf of a charity, you can now use much of what you learned at the office, in terms of managing others, and rallying the group to complete certain tasks and goals. Some Capricorns worked on a one-on-one level with another person, such as, for example, helping a friend who was in crisis. As one instance of many possible examples, you may have kept her spirits up by talking with her, and by frequently helping her with her children, doing some of the cooking, driving them to school, or by coming by on weekends to help the children with their homework. If she had no children, you may have come by to see what needed to be done around the house while your friend coped with her challenges.
The place Saturn is heading now will be in a gentle "cadent" house that is considered weak, giving you a rest from Saturn's demands. If you have to do research on a book or write your thesis, this placement of Saturn will help you concentrate and get the work done. The twelfth house is thought of as a place where you gain through solitude, where you can think deeply and not be distracted by others. All this means that this month will mark a positive change for you, dear Capricorn.
Saturn will retrograde back into Scorpio on June 14, to stay until September 17, 2015, a period of thirteen weeks. That is a very short time, so although Saturn, known to constrain all it touches, will be back in your friendship house, and I doubt you will be troubled by his presence. In fact, you may tie up loose ends, say, when you get ready to turn over the reins of your post as a chairman of a committee in a charity. You may want to write a report on what you learned and how the next person can benefit from your experience. For all practical purposes, you will be done with Saturn in Scorpio now, and he will not be back to Scorpio and your eleventh house until 2041. Yes, 2041! The period of time Saturn will spend in your behind-the-scenes sector - the twelfth house of research, rest, deep thinking, and solitude - will be from now until December 19, 2017.
Now let's look at December. Mars will be zooming through your financial second house starting December 4, sure to coax you into spending quite a bit this month. Of all the signs, you seem to be spending the most, but it could be that your spending is related to real estate or home related repairs or upgrades. Ironically, on the same day, you will have a stroke of luck from Uranus, planet of completely unanticipated developments, now touring your home sector, in beautiful angle to the Sun. This suggests a breakthrough on the home front could be brewing, an area most Capricorns have been frustrated with because of a lack of affordable, suitable options. Stay alert!
As if this day had enough going on, December 4 (December 3 on the West Coast of the US), also will bring a lovely interplay between Venus and good fortune Jupiter. Venus is Capricorn's ruler of the tenth house of fame, so good news about your career could come up, and because Jupiter is in your house of other people's money, a big-time bonus for you may be in the offing. Wow! When you're hot, you're hot!
The next day, more news about real estate matters, whether having to do with a rental or purchase or the sale of property, or repairs, maintenance, a renovation, redesign, or any other project, will leave you smiling. News will come out of the blue and should make you very happy.
Before you can go out and celebrate all your recent good news, you will need to finish up a big work-related project due within four days of the full moon in Gemini, 14 degrees, December 6. This full moon is full of sugar and spice. A lovely beam from the most active planet this month, Uranus, may bring unexpected praise for the creativity you put into this project. Jupiter will be in the wings, and although not very close, close enough to sprinkle financial luck on this project too.
Speaking of money, you seem to have the Midas touch with negotiations and money matters on December 12, and if you will see the people you are making your deal with, over the weekend, December 13-14 too. On December 12, Mercury (news, contracts) will receive support from Jupiter, so the financial portion of the deal will be generous. December 14 brings one of the most generous aspects of the month, when Jupiter works closely with the mighty Sun, a truly golden moment. Alternatively, someone may give you a valuable gift that takes your breath away, or a check may arrive that you love so much you simply want to stare at it rather than deposit it! Make a copy of it, and frame it, dear Capricorn!
With Venus in Capricorn from December 10 to January 3, 2015, you'll be eager to get into the swing of the holiday. You certainly will sparkle, so up the wattage of your looks even more by shopping for new things to wear to festivities. Having Venus in your sign, whether you are a man or woman, is always the time to spend a little money on yourself and refresh your look.
Venus teaches that an assertive approach is not necessary - when you have Venus in your sign, you draw interested admirers to you, almost effortlessly. Life is almost never like that, so while you have this once-a-year visit from Venus, make the most of it!
December will take on a transformation when the new moon appears on the arm of the Sun, at 0 degrees Capricorn, considered a very powerful critical degree. In the new moon's entourage will be the Pluto (power), Mercury (news and agreements), and Venus (charm, good looks - and money too). With all five heavenly bodies in Capricorn, this will be your moment to be decisive and to make announcements. You will be in control of the direction events take, which is unusual in life - often we are forced to compromise. Watering down any of your ideas will not be necessary now, so it's time to make presentations and negotiate deals to your full satisfaction. Capricorn is considered a big-budget, big money sign, so you may be working on something that has massive appeal.
Neptune will be in lovely angle to that new moon, underscoring how wonderful it will be to put forth creative, artistic ideas. With any new moon, you have the best energy immediately, the day it appears, and for the days that quickly follow. Every new moon decreases in energy with each passing day, until she is "spent" when she reaches the doorstep of the full moon (this time, that'll be January 3 - and this time it will be a cranky one). Even though it's holiday time, don't assume every VIP will be away. Your chart says you have best aspects now of 2014, so you must use that energy or lose it!
If your birthday falls on December 21, or within four days that follows, you will feel this new moon the most, and benefit from it too. Wow, dear Capricorn, you will have hit the jackpot.
On New Year's Eve, the transiting moon will be in Taurus, lighting your house of love and romance. Now THIS is a New Year's to celebrate!
The second part of December is sure to mark an important turning point. The new moon of December 21 will bring FIVE planets in Capricorn and the kind of control over events that you only used to dream about. Many people think of January 1 as the start of the New Year, but in fact this year, astrologically, the mathematics say December 21. Make your New Year's resolutions and announce them after December 21. If you apply yourself earnestly to your dreams for 2015, that plethora of planets in Capricorn will the help you see outstanding success.
You will want to have holiday fun, and you will, but first you need to get a major project out of the way, December 6. With Jupiter (good fortune) and Uranus both collaborating in a winsome way, you may see a generous fee for your work, or earn yourself a raise for your fine performance. The money will come in handy as this month, with Mars tearing through your earned income sector, you will have heavy expenses. You might say that everyone has high expenses in December, but actually, your levels seem much higher than those of other signs.
You may be thinking about buying a house, or renovating one, and that may explain why you are going through a pricey period. A golden triangle is appearing this month in the sky, linking Jupiter (good fortune) in your eighth house of other people's money, Uranus (sudden breakthroughs) in your house of home, and Venus (happiness) in your house of behind-the-scenes tips. If you want to find an apartment or house, call your broker and keep your cell phone powered up or another motivated person will grab that golden opportunity. The eclipses have been falling in your home sector lately suggesting you need to find a solution to housing, or alternatively, the care for one of your parents (mother-father are also ruled by house of home) - this month, that resolution could appear, much to your surprise.
If you are looking for a new position, your stars dazzle. The golden triangle will help you convince VIPS that you have what it takes to do well. Those five planets in Capricorn will give you presence this month, and with Venus in Capricorn, you will charm those you meet and be quite memorable. Along with your clever Capricorn sense of humor, how could anyone say no to you? They will want you on their team. The new moon in Capricorn on December 21 is a sign that you are about to begin a completely new cycle, and it will be an exciting one! Plant seeds after the new moon in Capricorn, December 21, and when you do, choose carefully the projects that you will put your energy behind. Those seeds have the power to grow big, like Jack and the Beanstalk's beans. It's rare to have five heavenly bodies in one sign - the Sun, new moon, Venus, Mercury, and Pluto - so while you have this advantage, make full use of it.
Romantically, love and beauty planet Venus will glide through Capricorn starting December 10 until January 3, 2015, just in time to brighten your holidays. Browse websites for evening wear, and my women readers, visit your hair stylist to find a fresh way to wear your hair for evening. Whether you are male or female, you will be noticed, and that is the first step to meeting someone new. Attached or single, plan something highly romantic to do on New Year's Eve. The moon will be in magically compatible in Taurus - you're sure to enjoy stepping out.
Dates to note: CAPRICORN
Most important dates for love, meetings, or actions Capricorn: 3, 4, 5, 7, 12, 13, 14, 17, 18, 20, 22, 26, 30, and 31.
Mars moves into Aquarius on December 4 until January 12, 2015, and will spark opportunities for you to make money. If there is a new trend that comes your way, integrate it into your plans.
On December 6 there is a full moon in Gemini may conclude discussions in your work place. Perhaps changes that were proposed months ago are now in place and you must now integrate them in your routine.
Venus moves into your home sign on December 10, until January 3, and brings you added grace and charm. It is an excellent time to improve your personal appearance, as in updating your wardrobe or getting a new haircut.
December 15 brings Uranus's fight with Pluto into your life, which may indicate an issue at home that needs attending too. If you are unaware of anything on that front, it might best to not plan trips that take you far from home.
A new moon in your sign occurs on December 21 that opens you up to make new changes in how you live your life. If there is a New Year resolution you thought about making, you can certainly start early and do it now.
Saturn moves into Sagittarius on December 23 until December 20, 2017, which might bring a certain heaviness of whose origin you might not be aware. It is a good time trust your instincts so if you feel something might become a problem, go ahead and nip it in the bud.

P.S. for December 2014
Happy Birthday Astrology Zone!
Since December 14, 1995, 19 Years on the Internet!
I am very excited to see Astrology Zone reach her 19th anniversary!
I have learned so much since 1995, the year I started, and with each passing year I enjoy writing for you more and more.
This past year has been a big challenge for me due to my health condition,
but you stayed with me, and your steadfast encouragement helped me get well.
2015 promises to be a bigger and better year than 2014; that's good news for you.
Before I got sick, I had many surprises in the pipeline for you.
Next month I will be able to show you some of those projects that I kept moving forward,
despite my illness.
My progress was due to the kindness, and help of my partners.
The first project I was working on in January 2014, you may already know about:
It involved replacing my old apps (started in 2003) and introducing two brand new ones.
The world had changed, and it was time to write new code.
My new apps were announced in last September, one for iPhone and another for Android/Samsung. If you didn't get yours yet, they are free and you can download them now in iTunes or Google Play. All the early bugs that showed up in the iPhone app are fixed, and both the iPhone and Android/Samsung apps run flawlessly.
The graphics of my new, redesigned apps are beautiful. Happily, both new apps will resize to fit all your devices. Please check system requirements.
Once inside the app on your smart phone, you will have the option of subscribing to my longer content for $4.99 for one month or $12.99 for three months - you have overwhelmingly chose to subscribe for the third option, the yearly $49.95 subscription.
If you don't have a smart phone or if you live overseas, you can still subscribe to the same content that I write for iPhone, Android, and Samsung.

Check Out the Star Map Collection by Sequin
Last March, when I was still well, I was invited by Sequin executive women to look at an idea their talented New York City Sequin Design Studio had for a collection of pendants with an astrological theme. I immediately fell in love with the various astrological pendants, and they asked me to check to make sure all the designs and keyword descriptions of the signs to be used on their site were astrologically correct. I made a few changes to the keywords, but my involvement was very minimal. (Everyone, it seems, at Sequin reads Astrology Zone!) I love the quality of these beautiful pieces. Many girls layer several of these necklaces, using various lengths, and that's a great look too.
The pendants are all made in America and handcrafted by artisans using material components from around the world, and are so well priced that I feel they will fly out of their inventory. These necklaces are gorgeous. They are made of 22K gold-plated brass with antique finish and crystal details. I was impressed with the lovely chain that the pendants come with too, as it is tangle-proof and delicately made to look beautiful when worn. Whenever I wear my necklaces, I get so many compliments.
These necklaces make great gifts, and also would be a beautiful addition to your accessory wardrobe. I quickly chose those necklaces as part of my favorite things to give for holiday gifts, or for a friend's birthday. Imagine how surprised I was that Oprah had chosen this Sequin Star Map Collection as a part of her "favorite things" in her December issue! I was so happy for my new friends at Sequin and the incredible success of this new line of jewelry. It seems Oprah and I think alike!
If you order by December 15, you will get your gift by Christmas. Readers living overseas, please order by December 10 to allow extra time for shipping. Your necklace will arrive in a pretty gift box, perfect for gift giving. Remember to think ahead for upcoming birthdays and Valentine's Day - I know these necklaces are going fast!

A New and Important Book on Fashion and Style:
"365 Style" by Nicky Hilton
Wow! Amazon tells me you bought SO many copies of Nicky Hilton's book in November!
I love Nicky's book too! Here is my review in case you missed it last month!
There are many books on the market on fashion and style, and I admit, I have bought many of them. In this new book, Nicky Hilton, designer, author, entrepreneur, daughter of Rick and Kathy Hilton, and sister of Paris, has created a completely original, honest, and remarkably wise book on style. It comes complete with many color photographs, and in it Nicky shows you ways you can upgrade your own fashion style from good to style icon level. The goal is to sharpen your personal style by looking within, not by copying someone else's style. Nicky gets you started by showing you some of her favorite style icons, but only to get you thinking. She gives many stories and examples from her own life, and she makes you enthusiastic about going through your own wardrobe to find ways to amp it up. The title of the book refers to Nicky's suggestion that you consider 3 aspects of your lifestyle, and choose 6 staple items of clothing and 5 essential accessories. Doing that will instantly get you a stylish starting point.
Nicky has attended all the fabulous fashion shows in New York, Paris, Milan, and more in her young years, but her advice is down to earth and certainly does not require you have a trust fund. Just the opposite, her tone is one of a best friend going through your closet and handing you advice that is at times funny but always wise. Certainly a lot of what Nicky says makes you think. In one chapter, she advises, "Always dress like you are going to meet your worst enemy" (i.e, bumping into the ex-boyfriend who betrayed you, or the mean girl in high school who made your freshman year a terror.) Nicky gives many examples of her own life and shows how running into that old boyfriend looking like a million because she had taken just a little extra time with her appearance on the way to meet girlfriends for a casual Mexican dinner gave her a happy boost during that unexpected nano-second on-the-street encounter.
With each page, you will rethink your own wardrobe and habits, and occasionally Nicky will casually toss out the very advice you needed most. When it happens, you will feel like you were hit by a thunderbolt. I enjoyed her advice about dressing for a first date, meeting his parents, and more, and all along she gives you many vignettes that allow you to see her own lifestyle. Those peeks into her own life allow you to understand why she has the authority and experience in her early thirties to write this wonderful jewel of a book.
She has advice on such things as:
- The $30 wardrobe item you can't live without.
- The one closet accessory that keeps everything organized at all times.
- Five must-have wardrobe items, all affordable.
- How to pack a suitcase like a jet-setter.
I feel you will enjoy this book and get much from it. Just click here to order your copy:
