for you, Capricorn. 2013 brings enlightenment, creativity, refinement and grace. It's a well-rounded year with strong potential in almost every major area. Your sense of intuition is heightened. New discoveries, secrets and mysteries abound.
Serendipity brings good things your way in 2013. Your Earth element helps streamline the influence of Water, and moderates the Snake's fixed element of Fire.

Your words have great weight. In times of trouble, you're reliable and responsible, and will never abandon a friend in need. You have a dramatic flair, and your own individual style.
You're a guiding beacon in a realm of endless night. You can be emotionally reserved at times. In the year of the Snake, still waters run deep. You can be stubborn if opposed, overly independent and occasionally cantankerous. Your practical side may sometimes stifle your creativity, and you may be prone to worry about facts and details. The latter can work in your favor, however, as you're not likely to be fooled - at least, not twice in a row.
You have a true and noble heart, and a pragmatic sense of right and wrong. Your mystique is enchanting. You have a vast inner beauty and an active imagination. Your sense of humor can be quirky or even irreverent. You enjoy good food, fine wine and stimulating company.

Capricorn in love reveals a whimsical, poetic side that may be less obvious at other times. In the Snake year, love and romance sparkle. If you're single, the Snake year brings diversity, romantic flings, stimulating courtship and creative exploration. Your sensual nature blossoms in 2013.
If you're looking for your soulmate, this person could enter your circle at least once this year. You could meet through friends, at a special occasion or event, or at work. This person could even frequent your favorite hangout. Your soulmate will be drawn to your treasure trove of knowledge and life experience, and conversation can flow to great depths.
If you're married or in a committed relationship, you could encounter a few bumps in the road, but in general the Snake year is positive for couples. You love profoundly when you commit to a partnership, and are willing to work on relationship problems. You must not be hesitant to share your deeper needs and feelings.
Trust and honesty help forge stronger bonds of intimacy. Emotional coldness can have unhappy effects, and can be a cause of relationship breakup. Insecurity is also a danger zone, but you usually have no problems ensuring that your partner feels loved. Love is a two-way street, however, and if your efforts are unappreciated or futile, you may retreat into silence or exit the relationship.

Capricorn Money and Career
You have a good head for finances, Capricorn, and know how to make your money grow. The Water Snake year is fortunate for wealth enhancement, and chances are good you'll see increased or additional income this year. You're not one to take outrageous risks. Strategy is beneficial in 2013. Past investments could pay off, and investments you make this year have good potential for growth. It's a lucrative time to start a savings fund, or add to one already existing.
Financial problems can achieve resolution this year, as the Snake releases the past and moves gracefully into the future. You may get a sum of money or material gain from a contest win, past work or investment, inheritance, employment bonus or stipend. While you may not win the lottery jackpot, you could win smaller amounts this year.
As an entrepreneur, you can make significant headway this year. The Snake brings fertility and growth on many levels. You have excellent work ethics and the ability to get things done efficiently. A partnership with someone who understands your vision can function in your favor. You can be quite independent, but may take on too much work at times. Be sure to pace yourself. Periods of re-assessment and evaluation throughout the year can ensure maximum productivity.
If you're seeking employment, stay true to your values, and seek work you enjoy. Capricorn in an unsuitable employment niche can be unstable and morose. Jobs which may interest you include research and development, technology, culinary arts, chemistry, philosophy, occupations at universities or places of higher learning, theater arts, medical science, urban planning, administrative occupations, food or entertainment critic, building or health inspector, business management, banking, accounting, forestry or wildlife management. You need a position with adequate intellectual stimulation, in which you can move up at a steady pace.
If employed, you're not likely to experience dramatic changes at work this year, but it is a period of advancement and growth, and you have the uncanny ability to find the glittering gem in the rock pile. Capricorn is the tenth house, the House of Social Status and Career. Opportunities for promotion or increased work income appear throughout the year.

Capricorn Health and Happiness
Health in the Year of the Snake takes an upward swing, as the Snake brings strong healing energy along with wisdom and understanding. Your body awareness increases, as does your physical grace and balance.
2013 can stimulate your palate, but beware of overindulgence. The effects of heavy desserts or fried foods can linger long after the pleasure has passed. Generally, however, you have the common sense to eat properly and get at least moderate exercise. Cardiovascular activities can be favorable for you this year. Watch for problems of circulation, blood pressure or fluctuations in blood sugar.
The great outdoors can have positive effects on your health. Hiking, swimming, walking meditation, canoeing or kayaking, spelunking or cycling are all beneficial. Basic stretching can improve your limberness. Meditation and aromatherapy can relax your mind and help free your creative powers.
Your lucky colors
for health and happiness this year include cream and warm off-whites, gold, silver and precious metal tones, amber, terracotta, deep blue, royal blue, turquoise, amethyst, translucent and crystal tones, peach, pink, airy yellows and oranges, ebony, obsidian and jet black, rich deep reds and warm grays. If decorating, do not use large areas of red in the middle of a room or house. Peach, pink and airy hues can enhance meditation, while clear or translucent tones can improve spiritual connection. Blues help bring emotional harmony and serenity, but be sure they're broken up with other colors or the room will feel cold.
