When it comes to shutting it down or lighting it up, Capricorns bring just the right amount of ambitious and focused energy. So it's very appropriate that Capricorn season should encompass both the end and the beginning of each year.
If you find that in the short, wintery days between December 22 and January 19 you're suddenly feeling inspired to finish everything you started in the last 12 months, thank the cardinal earth sign.

At its essence, Capricorn is an immaculate vibe that should be exploited whenever possible.
