No one else’s imposed ideas will work as well as the self-growth it takes to claim your own glory,” says Quinn.

You’ll feel a heavy emphasis on peeling back all the complicated layers of your subconscious in order to move forward in your professional and spiritual endeavors. “Your Capricorn mood looks like rest as an act of self-devotion. You are not afraid to work and put in the intellectual vigor that it takes to actualize your vision but make sure that it is balanced with time to refuel. Every arrow that makes its mark is stretched backward before it makes it forward charge, your energy works just the same. How is your rest a powerful component to your own success?” says Quinn.

Let this Capricorn energy help you find time to be rooted in all of your connections and biggest dreams,” Quinn explains.
