Zodiac, Self

Challenging but in a good way.

Your daily tarot card reading for each zodiac sign's astrology horoscope is here! The Sun is in Capricorn and aligns with Saturn who is also in Capricorn. The Moon is now in the sign of Aquarius.

When both Saturn and the Sun align with one another within a single zodiac sign, the traits of that sign manifest a little bit more in all signs of the zodiac. Capricorn is the sign of the goat. You might be wondering what is a Capricorn like?

Think about what they need to be. Where do you find goats in their natural element? Goats are often found in rocky, mountain terrain where there are predators, long distances to travel, and often uncertain access to resources.

To survive, a goat has to work hard to get what he wants. This zodiac sign, like a real goat, is often insensitive to the fact that he is in a challenging situation. A goat, like the Ram (Aries) or the bull, (Taurus) is a horned animal. Those horns aren't just there for protection. When something gets in his way, he will push with his head.

The goat doesn't hesitate to be self-sufficient. He's unafraid to go out on a limb — in fact, that's where you'll usually find him.

He unafraid of other goats or animals that threaten him. If you look into a goat's eyes, they are cold and sharp. When he has something on his mind, he is determined to get it. 

Right now, the Capricorn Sun and the Saturn remind us to be goat-like. This is the time to overcome adversity. Interestingly, their timing is perfect. Adversity is something that we all must face — slow-moving Saturn has moved into Capricorn to work out karma in the area of work-life. Sometimes we think about those things right at the start of a new year and the close of an old one.

For many us, the holidays are a bittersweet reminder of the past and the future. We have had our share of good times, and we want even better times. It often seems like we've come so far, and yet, have so far left to go. If you learn anything from a Capricorn, all that matters when you have to get somewhere is starting.

The goat is a cardinal sign, like Aries and Libra. 

The goat would bid us to not get caught up in our feelings about the process. He would say to stay focused on the prize. Although that may seem a bit cold for some zodiac signs, remember that this is the energy to learn how to emulate more in your life, when you need it.

There is symbolism on each Tarot card that you can use to provide insight when things are unclear. Check out your zodiac sign for Thursday, December 21st, 2017, daily tarot reading and astrology predictions.
