The year will always begin with the Sun in Capricorn, making you the only Sign that will begin your solar and calendar year at the same time. You’re not just moving into the New Year, but into a new solar year and whether you are a December or a January born Capricorn, this is your month. Yet don’t be surprised if this feels very different this year, with a strong sense that this is your year, especially when it comes to taking your power back. You will always move into the year with the Sun in Capricorn and to have Venus here as well is often the case. And since 2008 you have also had Pluto, planet of change and revolution in Capricorn.
However, it has been three decades since you last moved into the New Year with Saturn in Capricorn. While Venus will leave on the 18th January, your birthday month will end on the 20th January and Mercury, who returns on the 11th January will be gone by the 1st January and Saturn and Pluto will stay on. With Pluto here until 2024 and Saturn until December 2020, this is the start of a major new period for taking your power back. Pluto brings the potential for change and Saturn the power to move mountains if you have to, but more importantly to stick to what you start.
Yet while this is huge, it also takes away any urgency, with this the start of a journey that will not only continue for the rest of this year, but for the next three years. While that journey continues, as the Sun and Venus leave Capricorn they will team up in your income sector, where there are some growing developments all month. After investing so much professionally over the last few years, this is starting to bear fruit. This is also an important month for personal and professional networking.
Capricorn January 2018 Love Horoscope
The Moon’s return to your relationship sector on New Year’s Day is going to put relationship matters front and centre from the get go, especially by the time that this turns into the first Full Moon of 2018 on the 2nd January. With the Sun, Venus and Saturn all in their early days in Capricorn by then, the Moon’s opposition could see relationship tensions run high at the start of the month. Yet it is less the emotional responses that a Full Moon in your relationship sector will always trigger that will strike you, but your response to them.
With Saturn having returned to Capricorn just before Christmas for the first time in three decades, you’re still in the early days of taking your power back. You might have a Full Moon in your relationship sector at some point during your birthday month each year, but you don’t usually have Saturn on a mission to see you take your power back. Anything that your relationships demand from you that compromises your own needs or truth, will face an immediate backlash.
Despite how it feels this is a good thing, especially as you have Venus, planet of love and guardian of your relationships on board helping you to moderate things. This is the first time of a new mission to take your power back and it sets some very clear parameters from the get go, that this is a year where there has to be a balance between your personal and relationship needs. You’ll have a chance to revisit this with a lot less hype when the Moon returns from the 29th January to the 31st January. In the meantime, until she leaves Capricorn on the 18th January, Venus is on a mission to update your romantic and relationship desires and expectations for the coming year.
Capricorn January 2018 Money Horoscope
There is something low key but also empowering in play from the get go on both the income and financial fronts this month. While the lunar nodes returned to your two money houses last May and you have already experienced an eclipse in both your income and financial sectors, starting the year with them here is a different story. Since May you have had the North Node in your financial sector, giving your financial situation and money matters a clear sense of direction and a natural pull that is drawing money matters forward.
Ceres’ retrograde turn here last month means that while money matters will continue on their forward tract, you also have one eye on the rear view mirror. It is on the income front that there is the most change. This was always going to happen with Venus’ return to your income sector on the 18th January and the Sun’s on the 20th January, but the shift began last month. It was Juno, queen of commitment’s return to your income sector on the 17th December that has allowed you to move into the year with a new sense of resolve. Here you have the South Node, with its focus on the past and especially on untapped income potential.
By the time Venus returns to fuel your confidence and trigger the laws of attraction on the 18th January, the South Node has been here for eight months, so there will be a huge amount of untapped potential. Meanwhile, the Moon’s first visits to your two money houses are extremely important, for in both cases this is the last visit before returning as eclipses next month. The Moon will move through your financial sector from the 3rd January to the 5th January, the last visit before returning as a total lunar eclipse on the 31st January. Meantime, the Moon will move through your income sector from the 17th January to the 20th January, its last visit before returning as a solar eclipse next month.
Capricorn January 2018 Career Horoscope
Moving into the New Year with no planetary activity in either your professional houses is something that you haven’t experienced in several years, making this something you’ve got no recent experience in. It has been nearly a decade since you last started the year without a need to have your work and/or professional hat on from the get go, so you can be forgiven if this takes some getting used to. You’ve got a huge amount of momentum, especially on the career front and it’s that momentum that this professional year will use as fuel for several months.
This means there isn’t the push and the pressure of previous years and where you find that there is, you’re likely to find that it’s coming from you. When you expect to be pushed, without the momentum to hear yourself think, then you end up creating what you expect to see. The professional gods themselves are standing back, more focused on watching as the money gods step in to take the focus onto your income situation and matters. You’ve put in the hard work, you’ve created the momentum and now it is more about reaping the rewards, especially financially.
It is the Moon that will keep work and job matters on track, with its visits key to staying on track. You begin the year with the Moon in your work sector and while it will leave on New Year’s Day, starting the year with an intuitive read on work and job matters is an advantage there is no going back from. By the time the Moon comes full circle from the 27th January to the 29th January, things will be coming together on the income front. The Moon will make its first visit to your career sector for the year from the 8th January to the 10th January, sharpening your professional instincts and a sense of professional direction.
