so maybe that's my problem...
"A December 31 Capricorn responds to their heart, not their head. They may be impractical in the extreme, but they also paint their world in vibrant and extreme colors. A certain brilliance does not shield them from a great deal of instability. This can be a drawback to maturation, yet it also provides them with the emotional exhilaration they crave.
Capricorn Information for December 31
You should embrace:
Receptiveness, fantasy, the creative muse
You should avoid:
Willfulness, flattery, ego issues
Friends and Lovers
Even though December 31 individuals enjoy being surrounded by a large group of friends, they are anxious to have time in the spotlight. This is generally based on a lack of self-esteem. They often experience a great deal of heartbreak in love, linked to their inability to make good romantic choices.
Children and Family
December 31 people love family life. It's often the anticipated pleasures of a family that prompts them to settle down. Even though they may seek to work out issues from their childhood in their relationship with offspring, they brim with love and tenderness.
December 31 natives often ignore health issues until they notice a problem. Luckily, they possess natural vitality that allows them to neglect exercise and nutrition without seriously affecting their health. They may experience periodic problems with sleep, usually brought on by worry.
Career and Finances
It isn't uncommon for December 31 natives to change careers several times. They have a hard time settling on what they want. Although they have an instinct to make money and lead a stable, productive life, they also possess an emotional instability that is at war with their other instincts. Though adept at making money, they are better at spending it.
Dreams and Goals
People born on this date need to feel loved and valued. This is more important to them than professional success. If they are able to conquer their insecurities, they can be successful in their career. They have enormous creative talent."
Wow, for once I feel at one with my astrology writeup. I can't count how many times I've read Capricorn traits thinking "yeah, I'm organized and practical in my own way... but not in the business/money-making sense that they seem to be talking about."
I guess being born at the end of the month changes things a bit. This is by far the most accurate depiction of my personality any horoscope has ever given me. I'm a wanderlust, schemer, and dreamer at heart.
And so another year ends, and I'm 26. Plans for today are unfortunately the least desirable I've ever had on a birthday. Hostessing at the restaurant. As everyone puts it, at least I'm bringing in the New Year making money, and it will be a festive atmosphere.
After much soul searching and employment issues, my new year's resolution is to enter grad school ASAP.
The professional procrastinator that I am, I just kept thinking "I'll work straight through the year and do grad school later." Part of my problem is that I didn't know what I wanted to go to school for, nor how to finance it.
Being jobless in a bad economy changed all that, and I decided that now is the best time to suck it up and do it. I just couldn't see myself half-heartedly working yet another job that had nothing to do with my goals. I'm applying to SUNY Cortland to pursue my master's in ESL. In state tuition and living with my grandma will be a much better route than trying to support myself while going through school (which is a partial reason why Hamline didn't work out).
Grad school is a pretty good resolution to have. Also on the list: I need to stay in better contact with people. Hopefully 2009 will prove to be the year of fruitful changes.
