Capricorn Horoscope: February 2013
Dazed and Confused
This month brings you an overabundance of incoming data, much of which doesn't help you achieve your goals. You grow busier day by day, yet have little to show for your efforts as macho Mars enters meandering Pisces and your 3rd House of Immediate Environment on February 1.
Then, on February 4, Mars hooks up with indefinite Neptune -- already in the 3rd House of Immediate Environment -- for a long-term visit, which prompts you to inadvertently mislead others with your confusing actions and unclear motives.
Messenger Mercury adds to the uncertainty when it enters your 3rd House on February 5 and conjuncts Neptune on February 6. Your life shifts into high gear when Mercury and Mars square boisterous Jupiter on February 9-10. The intellectual Aquarius New Moon on February 10 occurs in your 2nd House of Values, encouraging you to look at what's most important to you personally and to set priorities based on your individual needs.
You're ready to bring your visions down to earth and make your dreams come true with fluid trines to industrious Saturn from Mercury on February 12 and Mars on February 16. The Sun's shift into Pisces and your information-rich 3rd House on February 18 repeats a now-familiar theme as the tempo picks up another notch.
But when your key planet, Saturn, turns retrograde also on February 18, followed by rational Mercury going retrograde on February 23, it creates an undertow in the currents that begins to pull you backward. Review your plans and reconsider recent decisions. The selective Virgo Full Moon on February 25 brightens your 9th House of Big Ideas, challenging you to narrow your field of vision by ignoring interesting yet distracting messages that don't further your development.
Keep in Mind this Month
You like having good information at your disposal in order to get where you're going, but collecting too many unrelated facts could just leave you stranded.
Key Dates for Capricorn
SUPER NOVA DAYS
February 10-12: Saving for a Rainy Day
You're overconfident about your income-earning potential when the brilliant Aquarius New Moon on February 10 activates your 2nd House of Finances and an inflationary Mars-Jupiter square blows your optimism out of proportion. However, self-doubt and discouragement can set in on February 11 as fears of scarcity overtake your initial enthusiasm, triggered by a frugal Venus-Saturn square. Your chances for success are greater if you pay attention to the obstacles you now face and respond to this reality check by reining in your expectations and acting with self-discipline. Thankfully, realistic thinking returns on February 12, when a pragmatic Mercury-Saturn trine enables you to make a concrete plan and stick to it.
February 25-28: Know Your Limits
You're lost in fantasy and illusion when loving Venus enters compassionate Pisces on February 25 and conjuncts spiritual Neptune on February 28. The Sun's square to extravagant Jupiter on February 25 encourages blind faith and can make anything seem possible. However, these expansive transits are countered by the narrowing Virgo Full Moon that squares indulgent Jupiter to remind you of the value of just saying no.
