CAPRICORN (December 22–January 20)
The theme of your life these days involves understanding your family connection. Family is tribe, in the closest sense we as members of Western civilization can get to the hunter-gatherers roaming around Africa eating magic mushrooms a million years ago. You identify strongly both with family and with the concept of the tribe; though, with Chiron's arrival in Aries, you may start to question that. The thing with a tribe is that it tends to subjugate, or outright ban, too much individuality. And it would seem that the thing you want the most is to live life as a discrete being, rather than as a member of a hive or collective organism. One way to do some reality testing is to consider all the things you cannot say to your family of origin or your family of choice (including your closest friends). What you cannot say may be something you've stuffed so deep under the surface, in order to conform, that you've lost track of it. If you retrieve that feeling, thought or idea, you get a little panicky about whether you'll still be acceptable to those you seemingly identify with so strongly. Pick the thing that would potentially be the most offensive, shocking, or embarrassing, and imagine having a little coming-out party. Could you actually do it? Could you say what you really say, do, feel, want, or know is true?
