Capricorn (December 22nd to January 20th)
You’ve never been the kind of person to rest on your laurels. In fact, I’d think the opposite: you’re more inclined to distrust laurels and too many awards because you’d feel other people had set the bar for your success rather than you. Success pretty much works like that for everybody though. What’s tricky for you is how you derive pleasure from the success, not just how you are lauded and appreciated for it. Pleasure’s always a fun conversation with you, and I mean that earnestly. You know that pleasure has a spectrum of “colors” that not everyone appreciates or is comfortable with. Toward the weekend, you might come face to face with what happens at the darker end of your own spectrum. Don’t think you can ignore or sidestep the need to deal with this. Ya can’t. But you can settle in on whether you’re going to touch at it lightly or go all in.
