Last year, health and work were important priorities but this year attention is shifting to the social sphere. Wedding bells are ringing for many a Capricorn these days.
Finance is always important to Capricorn but for many years now it has been even more important, almost a consuming passion. This trend is abating somewhat now. It’s not as intense as it was last year.
Religion, philosophy, higher education and foreign travel were important (and happy) interests last year and this trend will continue in the year ahead but after September 25th there is a renewed interest in career and social status. Career will start going great guns during that period.
The major headline this year, though, is the new prominence of intellectual interests in your scheme of things. Uranus makes a major and important move into your 3rd House of Communication this year and will spend the next seven or so years in this House. (Last year he was flitting in and out of this House but not really committed to it. This year, Uranus fully commits himself.) This is an important interest for many years to come. This is a year for study, taking courses in subjects that interest you, teaching, marketing and sales. A year for developing your mind.
Pluto has been in your 12th House for many years now and will still be there this year. There is a deep spiritual ferment going on with you. You are coming to terms not only with your personal past but also with the past of the entire human species. Many psychological issues that you face, many intellectual conundrums, can only be understood when you understand the entire sweep of human evolution. This revelation is coming to you now. A long-term process. A study of history and genealogy would be very interesting and appropriate.
Your areas of greatest interest this year are finance, intellectual interests and communication, love and romance, religion, foreign travel, higher education, philosophy until September 25th and after September 25th, career and spirituality.
Your paths of greatest fulfilment in the year ahead are children, love affairs, creativity, personal pleasure, the joy of life, religion, philosophy, higher education and foreign travel until September 25th and career after September 25th.
Health is very reasonable this year. Almost all the long-term planets are either making nice aspects to you or leaving you alone. Your 6th House of Health is not a House of Power, which I read as a good thing as you can more or less take good health for granted now. Later in the year, though (after September 25th), Jupiter will start making a stressful aspect and you might want to pace yourself more.
The main danger now is your demanding social and career duties. Both of these urges are very strong and your fire in the belly for both social and career success could cause you to overextend yourself against your better judgement.
Mercury is your Health Planet. He is a fast-moving planet and in the course of the year will move through all the Signs and Houses of your Horoscope. Your health needs will vary from month to month. Therapies that might work one month might not work another when Mercury is in another position and under different aspects. Healing can come to you in a variety of ways. These short-term trends will be discussed in the monthly forecasts.
Mercury’s retrogrades (four times this year) are always significant for your health. These are times to study and research new health regimes but not to actually undertake them. Important changes to your health regime or important health decisions (such as elective surgery or other invasive procedures) are best delayed (if possible) until the retrograde is over. Mercury will be retrograde from January 1st to 5th, April 6th to 29th and August 10th to September 1st and December 2nd to 19th.
Mercury rules the nervous system, the lungs, intestines, arms and shoulders so these organs need more attention than other organs. Since health problems would most likely arise there, keeping them fit becomes powerful preventive medicine. There are many natural and drugless ways to achieve this and they should be explored.
Mercury rules the mind and the intellect. Thus mental health is as important to you as physical health. And there is a strong correlation between your mental and physical health. Your mind needs to be given more attention. (Happily, this year you seem to be doing this.) The mind needs exercise as much as the body needs it. It needs good nutrition as much as the body does. Reading the great books especially the inspired literature of all cultures is very important. You want your mind fed with the best ideas, the highest wisdom and truths that humanity can offer. There is a need for good communication. When communication is blocked up, overall health can suffer. If you have friends with whom you can share intellectual interests, all well and good. If not, keep a diary to record your thoughts, ideas and impressions.
The mind needs to be used, not abused. Excessive speech or over stimulation of the mind can cause insomnia and other nervous problems. Worse, it can sap the energies that the body needs for healing and rejuvenation. Happily, Capricorns by nature are not excessive talkers but they can be prone to worry and anxiety due to an overly pessimistic perspective on things. This needs to be guarded against.
The health of a parent or parent figure can be enhanced by spiritual and meditative methods. Health of children and grandchildren, likewise.
Your 4th House of Home and Family is not a House of Power this year, Capricorn. You have much freedom and latitude in how you handle things. The Cosmos isn’t pushing you one-way or the other. Usually this shows a status quo kind of year. No major moves or family changes. If domestic life was happy last year, the same trend will continue. If there were problems last year, these trends will continue.
Career and love are much more important than domestic interests and family duties in the year ahead.
Though all seems quiet on the family front, a Solar Eclipse on April 19th could shake things up a bit. Flaws in the present home or family relationships will come up. Usually these are long, brewing issues that force correction.
Home and family issues become more important from January 1st to February 3rd and from March 20th to April 19th.
If you are doing renovations or construction in the home, January 1st to February 3rd seems like a good time. If you are redecorating, beautifying or buying objects of beauty for the home, try to schedule these things from February 8th to March 5th. This period is also excellent for entertaining from home, family gatherings and peace making with family members. Family gatherings are also more likely (and favourable) from May 7th to June 23rd.
A parent or parent figure will prosper towards the end of the year and could move or buy new properties. An expansion of their existing home could also happen. This figure is much more philanthropic in the year ahead, too. Relations with this parent or parent figure are good most of the year but could become more delicate later on.
Relations with children seem status quo in the year ahead. Of course, there are always ups and downs in this department but overall the status quo should prevail. You will need special patience with children from May 17th to June 29th, as they might seem confused in their direction or goals. Be especially mindful of how you communicate with them during this period, as miss-communication is more likely and will only inflame existing problems or create new ones. This advice applies to parents or parent figures as well. There is much happiness from grandchildren this year.
Capricorn 2018 love horoscope
As mentioned, this is a strong social year. Your 7th House is strong. Your own Ruling Planet, Saturn, occupies it.
A person’s Ruling Planet is always considered a positive influence on the affairs of the House in question. This is a very positive love message. Wedding bells or serious relationships can easily happen now. You are taking the initiative both in love and with friends. You are going out there looking for Mr or Ms Right. If you like someone, they are sure to know about it. You are not sitting around at home waiting for the phone to ring. Many of you are taking the initiative by organising social outings or perhaps hosting parties. You enjoy bringing people together these days.
The aggressiveness of a Capricorn will never match that of an Aries or a Leo but for you, this is aggressive. Always very cautious about everything, always looking at the risks and the downside of what could happen, your social aggressiveness will happen with the minimum of personal risk. Still, a little fearlessness in love would be a wonderful trait to develop in the year ahead.
Your overall social popularity is increasing this year, too. This is because you are going way out of your way to please others and doing your best to cultivate their good graces.
The danger with this position especially for the younger Caps is the loss of one’s centre, one’s core ethics and beliefs. Sometimes, the desire for social acceptance will make people go against what they really believe inside. They would rather be ‘popular’ than right and can be led into regrettable behaviour.
Those of you working towards a second marriage also have wonderful aspects in the year ahead. A very serious opportunity or prospect is already there. This person seems philanthropic and spiritual perhaps in the health profession, perhaps in the science and technology field. The relationship will probably start as a friendship and develop from there.
Those in or working towards a third marriage have a status quo year though things are much easier and harmonious than they’ve been for the past two years. Marrieds will tend to stay married and singles will tend to stay single. The same is true for those working towards a fourth marriage.
Friendships in general are happy. Your social circle is expanding. You are having more fun doing things in groups. New and important friends are coming into the picture.
Children of marriageable age have a status quo year though important romantic decisions will be forced by the Lunar Eclipse of May and perhaps by the one on October 28th.
Grandchildren of marriageable age are having a banner year both socially and financially. They seem very happy. They are having serial love affairs and playing the field but stable long-term relationships are not likely. They are enjoying the quest rather than the result of the quest.
Capricorn 2018 money and career horoscope
Finances are always important to you and have been unusually important for many years now and though many of the major trends of previous years are still in effect, you’ve had long-term planets in your Money House, I see some important changes this year. Your Financial Planet, Uranus, makes a major (once in seven years) move from Aquarius into Pisces. This shows many things.
For professional investors it shows opportunities in oil, pharmaceuticals, shipping and water utilities. For others it shows that people in these kinds of industries can be involved in their financial life or help them to prosper in some way, either as employers or as customers and clients. Pisces is the most spiritual of all the Signs. Intuition and spiritual guidance will play a major role in wealth this year and for many years to come. This will be an interesting lesson for you, Capricorn, as when it comes to business, you are all very logical and down to earth. You are not known for leaps of faith or for listening to ‘still’, small voices’. (And even if you did, few of you would ever admit it.) Your virtue (and it is a great virtue) is that you look at things as they are and work from there but intuition will not be looking at things as they are but at things as they will be in the future. This could be disconcerting for many of you but over the next seven years or so you will learn the power of financial intuition. One second of it is worth years of hard labour, plotting and calculating, etc.
Uranus’s move into Pisces is also a move from the 2nd House to the 3rd House, also very important. Many of you will be spending more on education over the next few years. Many of you will be making heavy investments in communication equipment and computers and, mainly, you will prosper though good communication, sales, marketing, mailings and media activities. The marketing aspect of things will be a major factor in wealth. Many of you will get jobs in the marketing field and many of you will use marketing more in whatever field you are in.
With Uranus as your money Planet, finances tend to be unstable as a general rule. There are always extremes in this area. The highs are spectacular but the lows can be equally spectacular. As a Capricorn, you’ve always been challenged to create some stability here. In the past seven years this volatility has been even more pronounced. Happily, things are quieting down a bit. There should be less extremism one-way and the other.
Career is going to soar in the year ahead but later on in the year. Career horizons are expanding. There are honours and recognition for who you are. There is more travel related to business. Pay rises and promotions are happening and though you usually like responsibility, this year it could be more irksome as it could clash with your very active social life.
Those of you who have issues with the government should wait until after September 25th to deal with them. You are more likely to get a better outcome then. Indeed, the government and people in authority over you are more gracious in many ways, not just financially. There could be lucrative government contracts or lucrative government connections. This is a year for ‘prestige’, which is different to plain old money.
