Capricorn October 2017 Horoscope: Love, Money & Career


It is said that from small beginnings big things grow and that is definitely what is happening now. Except when you’re at the small beginnings stage you can’t appreciate that, with nothing to go on but a sense that the tide has turned. This comes from Pluto’s direct turn in Capricorn late last month, something so ordinary that it can’t be responsible for a new sense of anticipation. In Capricorn from 2008 to 2024, Pluto will spend from April to September in retrograde motion.

This makes his retrograde turn in the final days of September part of the annual pattern. Yet it wasn’t Pluto’s direct turn that has you excited, but the view you have of the road ahead. This is the point where, personally you’re moving to the future rather than the past and it’s that future that has you excited. It will take you until just before Christmas to get there, but by the time the Sun returns to Capricorn you’ll be in the early days of a period of major new beginnings. For what you’re looking ahead to is Saturn’s return to Capricorn.

Saturn returns once every three decades, but has never and will never again be here at the same time as Saturn. The most powerful three years in several lifetimes and now less than three months away. This is going to put a new context on everything, including a final professional push, taking your financial power back and will empower every aspect of your life. After driving through windy mountain roads for months, you finally reach a point where you can see the landscape stretching out in front of you.

Love 2017Capricorn October 2017 Love Horoscope

You have reached a point in the year when all the planetary activity in your romantic and relationship sectors is over for the year. This is not surprising and is the norm. What is surprising is that the last planet only left your relationship sector in late September, two months after all planetary activity for the year has normally run its course. Romantic matters did the same, only just running their course at the halfway point in the year.

So while all the planetary activity for the year is over, in both cases it has extended far enough that all you really need are the Moon’s monthly visits to keep both on track. When Ceres left your relationship sector late last month, she not only left you with some clear relationship priorities, but with locked in support from the communication gods. Keeping your relationship on track is now down to keeping the communication lines open.

This will be especially so during the Moon’s monthly visit to your relationship sector, from the 11th October to the 13th October. At the same time, while there is no planetary activity in your romantic sector Venus, planet of love is doing her best to keep the romantic flame burning. Until leaving an adventurous part of your chart on the 14th October, Venus will be working with Mars to brew a potent cocktail of romantic, adventurous and passionate forces. They will get some help from the romantically charged lunar vibes that move through from the 7th October to the 9th October.

Money 2017Capricorn October 2017 Money Horoscope

With the South Node in your income sector and the North Node in your financial sector until November 2018, the wheels will continue to turn on both fronts. However, not in the dramatic way that they did with August’s lunar eclipse in your income sector and total solar eclipse in your financial sector. It is having the lunar nodes here that created those eclipses, along with the eclipses next February and again in mid 2018.

Until now all the planetary activity has been in your financial sector, with income forces having to wait until January for their turn. However, with Jupiter in your career sector until the 11th October and so much support here during the month, income matters have more than enough support. It was Venus’ departure from your financial sector last month that did bring all the planetary activity there to a close, temporarily leaving the lunar nodes on their own. This was a chance to balance the two.

Yet it was just four days later that Ceres returned for her first visit to your financial sector in four years. Here until June 2018, Ceres will operate in the background, focused less on the money and more on redefining your financial priorities and your definition of financial success. Normally Ceres will just focus on money matters, but with the lunar nodes needing to maintain a balance between money coming in and money going out, she will focus on both. Maybe that’s why she’s staying for nine months, rather than her usual three months. While the lunar nodes are constantly working to maintain a balance between money coming in and money going out, there is no competition or tension between the two.

Career 2017Capricorn October 2017 Career Horoscope

October is a month that will always have the spotlight on your career situation and matters, due to the fact that the Sun will always spend the first three weeks of October in your career sector. However, there hasn’t been a moment of this year when you haven’t had your professional hat on, thanks to Jupiter’s return last September.

Yet what you have this month is a passing of the baton, with Jupiter’s 13 month push coming to an end, while the forces that will take things from here arrive. The Sun and Mercury both returned to your career sector last month, the Sun just as Jupiter moves into his final 18 days. By the time Jupiter leaves on the 11th October, he will have done everything he could to bulldoze a path for ongoing professional growth and to give you as much professional traction as possible.

By the time Venus returns on the 14th October Jupiter will be gone and the Sun and Mercury will be focused on the ‘when, where and how’. With so much water having already passed under the bridge, Venus will be focused more on attracting opportunities and exploiting all the potential. Mercury’s departure on the 17th October means he won’t be here for a New Moon on the 20th October, but his intellectually savvy edge will make it easier to draw a new line in the sand. Yet with Mars returning on the 23rd October but not leaving until early December, it will take a few more months for things to fully play out.
