This is your Harper’s Bazaar birthday horoscope, Capricorn. If you were born from around 21st December to 21st December then your Sun is in the most ambitious sign of the zodiac. The next Queen of England and current First Lady of America are born under your sign. If you were born on the cusp, though, please check your time, date and place of birth at Astro.com to confirm your Sun Sign. These are some famous Harper’s covers of Kate Moss, who has been at the top of her profession for decades.
CONTROLLING YOUR IMAGE IN 2014
Almost as soon as the Sun changes signs on Saturday 21st December all eyes are on you. This lets you see yourself from the outside looking in. Once Mercury enters Capricorn on Christmas Eve there is much to discuss. This may feel self-indulgent; even egotistical. You are just being practical, however, as what is under discussion near Sunday 29th January sets up 2014 as a whole. The New Moon at 11.14am on New Year’s Day in Britain is your cue to take control of your image, brand, identity and appearance at last. The internet is not so very out of control if you play it right. Your horoscope also reveals that the person, organisation or situation which dominated you so unfairly and relentlessly is also much diminished. Your photographs, film footage and Google profile has a very different glow in 2014. Why? Because you are in charge of your exterior and it is so powerful these days, it matters quite as much as your interior.
FORMER, CURRENT AND POTENTIAL PARTNERS
From Thursday March 6th, there is movement at last with your former, current or potential partner. You are quite right to remain optimistic and trusting. Jupiter has a great deal in store to reward your faith, energy and effort from 2013. The story develops in welcome and wonderful stages until Wednesday 16th July when Jupiter moves away, leaving you satisfied with the one solution or opportunity you needed most.
ENEMIES, OPPONENTS AND RIVALS
Those who are against you actually benefit you in this cycle as I wrote last year. You gain advantages that would not be possible any other way, either because your Moriarty figure is a weak opponent (and thus a pushover) or because this impossible person actually does you favours without intending to. What could be more quietly enjoyable? If you are tired of a conflict, though, here is an old trick. Create a duet or partnership, even a temporary one – perhaps through work or outside interests – and turn your attention and energy to that.
FINANCIAL ANSWERS AND ADVANTAGES
You enter a stunning new financial, business, property or charity cycle (depending on your priorities) when Jupiter moves into Leo from Wednesday 16th July and stand to gain quite dramatically near the New Moon on Saturday 26th July. Discussions, news or paperwork near Saturday 2nd August is equally encouraging. The Venus-Jupiter conjunction on Monday 18th August makes it clear that a new arrangement is a win-win. This is a constant theme for the rest of the year, well into 2015 as well. This is not just about what you stand to accumulate or eliminate. It is about other people’s vested interests as well. The presence of Psyche in Aquarius also suggests that what you create in your financial or material world this year lasts forever. It will actually outlive you.
FRIENDS AND GROUPS
Saturn turns the corner into a much easier phase from January 2014 and for around five months you will be given a break from what has been extremely gloomy weather with (or for) an old friend, or particular network of people. This gives you the breathing space you need. The issues will be largely over by Christmas apart from a brief period in 2015.
HOW TO BE FREE
With Pluto in Capricorn, your own sign, you must have noticed how much control everyone wants these days. Politically, professionally, economically and in business, there is a burgeoning need to dominate. This has a trickle-down effect into the behaviour of particular people in your very personal world. So how can you be free in the context of that? The answer actually lies with your house or apartment. Perhaps your home town or homeland. April will find you at your most radical. Then there is the family or household. Everyone has tremendous projections about domestic life or the clan and how it should be. This is not your issue, but independence is. You need and deserve oxygen and space. It’s close.
Do not contribute to a possible conflict affecting your career or other calling in life. The situation would have been set up in December, when suddenly one particular project, organisation, person or trend seemed to move up several gears at once. As you read this you can use your astrological advantage. There is an early warning system in place for your horoscope very close to Christmas. No matter how much you long to be impulsive or to release pent-up frustration do not start a fire nor contribute to it. If you do it could burn until July. Awareness is everything so practise avoidance. You are such a success story you know how to do this blindfolded!
