Capricorn 2017 Horoscope: A Look at Your Year Ahead

(Dec 22 - Jan 20)

You have more impact than you may think—in ways that have not necessarily occurred to you. You must measure your words carefully, which means being aware of your thoughts and saying what you mean. Yet as the evil genius Frank Luntz suggested, it's not what you say, it's what people hear.

It would be fair to say that you cannot take anything for granted. You cannot assume you are understood, or that you understand yourself; you cannot allow others to guess what you're feeling, nor allow yourself to speculate about their feelings. In your current state, it would be easy to allow others to define you— though you simply must stand back from any definition and allow your truth to come to you.

It may take all your discipline to see through this particular fog, though the results will be worth the effort. A measure of consistency is called for; though, given the pace at which you're growing, you're not the same person every day.

To compensate for that, you must at least be aware of your positions yesterday, today and tomorrow and at least admit that you're changing your mind on a fairly regular basis.

Admit your own contradictions, lest others feel that they're going mad or that you don't care about them. It would serve you well in 2017 to be verbal and demonstrative about how much you care, and to do that rare thing of backing your words up with actions and decisions that demonstrate your knowledge. In your relationships, this will teach you that you draw your true power from the strength of others, not from their weakness.
