Capricorn December 2017 Horoscope: Love, Money & Career


There are a lot of inconsistencies about this month that might have you wondering how to play things to start with, which is why you need to take things one step and day at a time. You start the month with Mars not only in his final days in your career sector, but charged with bringing Jupiter’s 13 month visit home and nearly 16 months of planetary activity. Until leaving on the 9th December, Mars needs you to keep your professional hat on 24/7, putting everything you have into everything you do.

The problem is, you’re in the wind down of not just your old solar year, but a three decade long Saturn cycle that began in 1988. This requires some serious navel gazing and time spent reflecting. Saturn first returned to Capricorn in 1988 to begin the Saturn cycle that is still unfolding, but it was in December 2014 that he moved into a nostalgic part of your chart to begin a three year wind down. When the Sun returned last month to begin the month long wind down of your old solar year, the two overlapped. This is what Mars has to compete with, making it important to make work/life balance a priority from the get go.

For while it is important to spend time navel gazing, this is also a social month, with a lot of focus on personal and professional networking. It is just before Christmas that everything changes, starting with Saturn’s return to Capricorn on the 20th December, just two days before the Sun returns to kick off your birthday month and new solar year on the 22nd December. Within the space of 48 hours you not only begin your new solar year, but a new three decade long Saturn cycle. This is a month where the lines between the past, present and future will remain blurred.

Love 2017Capricorn October 2017 Love Horoscope

With no planetary activity in your romantic or relationship sectors, there is a lot more focus at this time of year on both the Moon and Venus. The Moon because it will always visit both at least once a month and this month your romantic sector will get two visits. The focus will always be on Venus, for regardless of what is or isn’t happening on the romantic or relationship fronts, the planet of love has to be somewhere. And in the final month of the year, Venus will spend the majority of the month in a nostalgic part of your chart, taking your heart on a nostalgic trip down love’s memory lane from the 1st December until leaving and returning to Capricorn on Christmas Day.

Venus will then see out 2017 and welcome in 2018 in Capricorn, with the planet of love singling you out for her full attention. The Moon’s two visits to your romantic sector will highlight the two sides of Venus this month. Moving through from the 1st December to the 3rd December, romantically charged lunar vibes will be in play when Venus begins her nostalgic trip down love’s memory lane.

Yet by the time the Moon moves through again from the 28th December to the 30th December, Venus will be in Capricorn and looking to the future and not the past. The Moon will make its last visit to your relationship sector for the year from the 5th December to the 7th December. While your relationships have less direct support, there is a lot of support from the two planets on the communication front. With communication the key to keeping your relationships on track, your relationships have just what they need.

Money 2017Capricorn October 2017 Money Horoscope

With the lunar nodes in your two money houses, things are not going to go off the boil on the income or financial fronts, but the dynamics do become more balanced this month. It was the North Node’s return to your financial sector and the South Node’s return to your income sector last May, the has created a natural current on both fronts. As the forces behind August’s lunar eclipse on the income front and total solar eclipse on the financial front, the lunar nodes are always keeping things ticking over. Yet with Ceres in your financial sector and no planets in your income sector, this has put more weight on money matters.

While that will remain the case this month, the pendulum does start to shift ahead of the Sun and Venus’ return to your income sector next month. That shift is slight, but it is there, with Juno returning to your income sector on the 17th December. Only an asteroid, Juno doesn’t have the power to create outside change, she can bring an internal shift. As the queen of commitment, Juno returns a month ahead of Venus, with a chance to start looking to the New Year. You may not start the month with any thought of new income resolutions for 2018, but chances are you will end the month with them.

This makes the Moon’s visit to your income sector from the 21st December to the 24th December a lot more important. Arriving just days after Juno’s return, this will sharpen your nose for money and give you a sense of her subtle influence. In the meantime, the Moon’s return to your financial sector from the 7th December to the 9th December will be a valuable chance to get your financial bearings.

Career 2017Capricorn October 2017 Career Horoscope

In terms of the push to bring this professional year home, the first thing to note is that this is a push to bring things home and the second is both how intense and how early this is. There was no push to bring your 2016 professional year home because it never ended. With Jupiter in your career sector from September 2016 to October 2017, one professional year simply continued into the next, without taking a break. Yet for the first time since Jupiter’s return last year, Mars’ departure on the 9th December will finally bring things home.

Mars will leave you with more than enough momentum to bring this professional year home, but in what might finally be a controlled stop and time out to catch your breath over the holiday period. However, the professional gods will throw everything they have into making the warrior planet of the cosmos’ final days count, knowing that this is not just the push needed to bring this professional year home, but keep things going next year as well.

This makes the Moon’s return to your work sector from the 3rd December to the 5th December timely, even if all this did was give you an intuitive read on work and job matters. Yet as a Full Moon on the 4th December, this is going to give work and job matters a jump start in Mars’ final days. At the other end of the month, the Moon will come full circle from this Full Moon on 30th December, allowing you to end one year and start the next with an intuitive read on work and job matters. There will be a chance to tie up loose ends on the career front when the Moon moves through your career sector from the 11th December to the 14th December, just days after Mars leaves on the 9th December.
