Social Status and the Full Capricorn Moon

The full moon in Capricorn, the sign of social standing, shows us our rank. It may be done publicly in the form of awards and pronouncements, but more often we can just tell by the way people deal with us. Who gets the most eyeball time? Attention flows to the people who are important to us. But more importantly, how do you feel about you?

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You’ll ask yourself, “Am I living, or just existing?” You’ll push yourself to experience more. You’ll be uncomfortable at times too — that’s how you’ll know you’re doing it right.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). It’s like everything is aligning to help you launch the new you. Your seriously playful approach to life is to blame for the constant ringing of your phone. Everyone wants to be around you.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Don’t settle for what other people call “excitement” or expect them to think your particular interest is exciting either. The thing that gets your heart racing is exactly what you should be pursuing.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Maybe it just seems like an ambitious project, but to you it’s something different — a revolution. You have a rebellious spirit kicking in you today, though you’ll express it in a way that most people won’t recognize as rebellious.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Get out your fish-eyed lens and focus wide. There may be some distortion around the edges, but your broader view of the possibilities is more important than the accuracy of that view right now.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). The person who tells you “my life is hard” is actually living a very cushy existence. What’s “hard” is being around people who are soft and weak without pointing out that others have it much worse.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You can “call out” your own beliefs the same way you might “call out” a loved one for incorrectly spouting off. Don’t believe everything you think. And this week you can’t even believe everything you believe because doing so will limit your options.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). The person who is overly concerned with what he or she is doing for you is acting out of insecurity. It is much more comfortable to be around the person who acts out of genuine affection and is not so worried about keeping score.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Hosting is your gift. You are like a song that brings everyone together in perfect harmony. The details of the party have nothing to do with its success, except the detail of your warmth and smile.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Tiny troubles will be like tiny bubbles in a fizzy drink. One by one, they will rise to the surface and pop. You might find that without them things get a little flat.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). There’s nothing like the exuberant fun you have with your first-choice person. If this can’t be arranged face-to-face, you’ll have just as much fun using the magic of technology together.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Your thoughts drift to the way a relationship unfolded. Even though it wasn’t entirely awesome, there’s little you would change about it, even if you really could. There’s satisfaction in this reminiscence.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (June 23). You’ll love the recognition and money you get for your individual efforts. The group accepts you, but you don’t fit in there. You’ll roam, looking for a “home” for your talents. August shows you a better match. Unpredictable interruptions, detours and surprises keep your personal life hopping. Wedding bells ring in December. Aries and Leo adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 47, 2, 19, 33 and 45.

FORECAST FOR THE WEEK AHEAD: “Who is the fairest of them all?” asked Snow White’s evil step mother, as if being queen wasn’t enough for her — she had to be the prettiest, too. The full Capricorn moon is like the evil queen’s magic mirror, but beauty isn’t the only thing it reflects. Capricorn is the sign of social status, and there are many factors to weigh on the equation. Beauty, position, family name, the respect of peers, charm, money, education, taste. … The list goes on. Which do you value the most? You may notice the answer to that question as you interact with others this week and you’ll learn what they value too. Sometimes they’ll tell you outright, but more often, their behavior will tell the story. People value what they pay attention to, and they pay attention to what they value. So where is the attention going?

One thing that’s important to keep in mind is that even though public opinion may matter a great deal to you and may have a tremendous impact on what you are able to accomplish, it is foolish to base your self worth on the good opinion — or bad opinion — of others. Your public image is but a reflection of who you are. Without the real you, it would reflect nothing.
