You are one of four signs that bore the brunt of some fairly challenging influences in play over the final two weeks of 2016. If you’re looking for someone who can relate to what you’ve been through, then seek out the Cancereans, Aries and Librans, for you all had it just as tough. Yet you’re all part of a unique survivors club, that have been given a massive head start on 2017, some clear objectives from the get go and some valuable lessons learned. The only reason why tensions came to a head over Christmas was that for the first time in 12 years you’ve moved into the New Year with lucky Jupiter in your career sector.
Take Jupiter out of the equation and there would have been no tension, but then you wouldn’t have the enormous opportunities you have for professional growth and opportunity. These are opportunities that will dominate the first 11 months of 2017, so a few tough weeks were a small price to pay, even if it was over Christmas. However, rather than a cost this was a gain, especially when it comes to the work/life balance lessons learned.
The problem came from the fact that Uranus, in his final days in retrograde motion in your home and family sector, was not happy about Jupiter’s professional focus and it was their opposition that created the tension. Now that everything is out in the open and a truce has been called, you’re able to not only benefit professionally from the professional growth ahead, but there are signs that January could be a lucrative month. What is clear is the importance of working smarter from the get go, but goes one step further in that you’ll also find it easier to think creatively and outside the box. With your birthday month not running its course until the 20th January and Mercury staying on until the 7th February to tie up loose ends, get a feel for this new month and new year before finalising your game plan or your resolutions. Too soon and you run the risk of associating too much with 2016, a very different year to 2017.
Capricorn January 2017 Love Horoscope
While your birthday month won’t run its course until the 20th January, even before it began you had a clear sense of what you want from love and your relationships. Venus, planet of love and guardian of your relationships left Capricorn in early December and not due to return until Christmas Day, she won’t return until the final week of 2017, too late in the year to make any real impact. It was the Moon’s last visits to your romantic and relationship sectors for the year that gave you a chance to confirm that.
This allowed you to form your romantic and relationship desires and expectations for 2017 from Day 1, but it also makes the Moon’s last visit for the year a lot more important. Moving through your romantic sector from the 7th January to the 9th January, the first romantically charged lunar vibes of 2017 will speak directly to the romantic desires and expectations Venus left you with, most likely confirming what you already know. It is the Moon’s first visit to your relationship sector for the year that is especially timely, for moving through from the 11th January to the 13th January this will fuel your emotional responses and even push some buttons, because that’s what it’s supposed to do.
However, with Venus not only returning to your communication sector on the 3rd January, but teaming up with Mars, the planets of love and passion will be on hand to give your emotional responses and relationships a voice. With communication the key to keeping your relationships on track while this is being supported all month, the most important days will be while the Moon is stirring your emotional responses to relationship matters, from the 11th January to the 13th January.
Capricorn January 2017 Money Horoscope
Moving into the year with the Moon and Venus in your income sector gives you a dream start, with your nose for money sharp, a strong sense of entitlement and a clear sense of what you want from the get go. The fact that the Moon will leave on the 2nd January and Venus just a day later on the 3rd January, not to return until 2018 hardly matters, for like a bell that can’t be unrung, how you start the race determines the outcome. With Mars having only just left your income sector on the 19th December, the shards of glass are still strewn on the floor from those glass ceilings he has attacked with a battering ram, especially those in your own mind.
Venus stayed on to help you capitalise on that and together, this allows you to start the year knowing what you want, your fighting spirit fired up, a sense of entitlement and the laws of attraction in effect. The Moon’s return on New Year’s Eve was the icing on the cake, giving you a nose for money that was a pure bonus. By the time the Moon returns from the 27th January to the 30th January the Sun will be here and together they will create the first New Moon of 2017, falling in your income sector on the 28th January.
Yet anything this might trigger, will owe a large debt to what Venus and Mars began triggering in late 2016. It also helps that for the first time in 12 years you have also moved into the New Year with lucky Jupiter in your career sector. While the Sun will leave on the 19th February and Mercury, who doesn’t return until early next month, will be gone by the 25th February, having such a good start to the year is all you need, especially with the professional gods staying on.
Capricorn January 2017 Career Horoscope
Moving into the New Year with lucky Jupiter in your career sector is something that you haven’t experienced in 12 years and despite the fact that he’s been here since September, you are only now feeling the full weight of both the opportunities and the challenges this brings. It was over the holiday period, when for the first time in five years taking your professional hat off wasn’t an option, you felt the weight of this. It wasn’t just that this conflicted with Christmas and the holiday period, but your home and professional lives came into the conflict cosmically, with planets on both sides in opposition.
Any work/life balance tensions or issues this raised are dropping back as you move into this new professional year, but it was a valuable reminder of the importance of working smarter and pacing yourself. With Jupiter not leaving until October and already slowing down ahead of his retrograde turn early next month, you really are running a marathon and not a sprint. After a Full Moon in your work sector last month, a lot of the momentum for the early months of this new professional year has already occurred, calling for a slower and more measured approach. You will get a better read on both the speed and approach required when the Moon moves through your career sector from the 18th January to the 20th January.
This will be both the Moon’s first visit for the year and the last before Jupiter turns retrograde, making these an important few days for having your finger on the pulse and ear to the ground. You’ll get an intuitive read on work matters from the 9th January to the 11th January. Coming full circle from last month’s Full Moon, this may trigger some unexpected job developments.
