Self-esteem -- it's the crucial foundation for everything we aim to accomplish. Whether it’s healthy relationships, robust creativity or money -- if you don't believe in yourself authentically, none of these achievements amount to much. Sure, it's possible for you to fake it 'til you make it, but what you really want is meaningful mastery -- not just the outward trappings of success.

Our popular culture, family dynamics and professional lives create myriad challenges that keep us from loving ourselves with wild abandon. And when Capricorn dominates the skies, you're even more likely to be hard on yourself.

Capricorn, ruled by Big Daddy Serious Saturn, can make you feel like you’re being criticized all the time. This powerful sign also has a cruel side, one that can slam you back down to Earth when, like Icarus, you fly a bit too high.

Your quest between December 21 and January 19 is to find that fine line between healthy self-esteem and hubris. If you make friends with Capricorn energy, you can achieve the perfect balance and enable your inner mogul to hit the big time -- and then some.

The key is to turn off the negative mental tapes. It's as if the callous teacher who made you feel stupid in seventh grade is right there, whispering, "You'll never amount to anything" in your ear. When conservative, authoritarian Capricorn dictates the astrological matrix, these false messages can get louder and louder. You must find a way to tune these negative voices out so you can tap into the higher power of Capricorn. Your success and happiness depend on it!
