Zodiac cards: Capricorn


CapricornCard: Your cash sherpa
Color scheme: Dark green with garnet goat’s horn
Chief feature: Generous line of credit
(Dec. 22-Jan. 21)

Your goal: The mountaintop. Your plan: Steady ascent. Your tool: CapricornCard. There’s no room for error with a mountain to climb. One false step and you’re a made-for-TV movie about OxyContin and broken dreams. You deserve better, don’t you? But it’s going to take more than stamina to reach the top. You’ll also need lederhosen and a sherpa with local currency to get you over the rough spots. CapricornCard’s generous $100,000 line of credit will be that sherpa. Sure, our 24.95 percent APR is a little steep. But so are your dreams. Reach the top with CapricornCard. Metaphor not guaranteed and may lose interest.

For fun, click on your Zodiac sign below to read about how a credit card might one day be tailored to your unique astrological make-up.  Remember, this is imaginary, not real, so don’t try to apply for it, no matter what the stars say.
