Capricorn (December 22nd to January 20th)

If the world seems to have gone crazy or unreasonable this week, especially toward the bottom of the week, don’t go crazy about it. Notice I didn’t say go crazy with it. I know you won’t do that as you usually keep a level head. But certain aspects of irrationality really bother you. It really shouldn’t because there’s a reason why capricious, doing things on a whim, has the same root as Capricorn.  That’s because on some level, you’re wild at heart like a goat (the actual root for both words from Latin). Appearances or demeanor doesn’t matter. Wild is not the same as irrational, but it’s certainly a good place to start to move toward understanding people who act irrationally or more with their feelings. And the name of the game is understanding here this week. It doesn’t mean you’re ready to be patient; but with another 3 weeks of Cancer season, we have time.
