Your Capricorn 2017 horoscope: What’s ahead for your Sun sign?
Adapted from The AstroTwins’ 2017 Planetary Planner
Set your sights on the big leagues, Capricorn! 2017 is poised to be one of your most ambitious and successful years in over a decade. Lucky Jupiter is soaring through the top of your chart, as it cruises through the zodiac’s most public and status-boosting sectors all year, helping you score a professional victory, gain fame or realize a lifelong dream. If you’ve been toiling away, your hard work could pay off with glowing recognition and perhaps even a whole new income level. Other Caps might make a big career change. Men, fathers and mentors will play a key role for many Caps this year, too.
Meanwhile, your ruling planet, sober Saturn, is completing a long rotation through your chart that began back in 1988, the last time Saturn entered your sign. This 29-year cycle will end on December 19 as Saturn returns to Capricorn—its first visit since curling irons, Bon Jovi and acid-washed jeans were the rage (Google it if you’re not old enough to remember!). But don’t throw a party just yet. Until December, Saturn will be in Sagittarius and your twelfth house of closure, a time to make peace with the past, heal rifts and leave unfulfilling situations firmly in the rearview.

Saturn has been in your transitional twelfth house on and off since December 2014, forcing you to set up boundaries or make some difficult but necessary changes. As 2017 comes to a close, your goal should be to have cleared away toxic ties and energy-sucking relationships, and to have righted any wrongs you’ve done to others. This year is like an energetic Marie Kondo—ahh, the “life-changing magic of tidying up” your life!
Then you can welcome Saturn back home to a clean slate on December 19 when it enters Capricorn, and use the ringed planet’s stern, structured energy to build a foundation that will define the next 29 years of your life. Note: Saturn is all about integrity, so there will be no cutting corners or rushing into this new phase. Luckily, most Capricorns understand that life is a marathon, not a sprint. Get ready to lace up a brand new pair of running shoes—a new path awaits!
LOVE & RELATIONSHIPS
Codependent no more! Establishing healthy boundaries with loved ones is the key to your satisfaction this year. While romance isn’t the headline focus of 2017, there are plenty of opportunities to grow by taking calculated risks to open your heart and be vulnerable. Since your career is a huge emphasis this year, you could meet someone special through your job, an industry event, or even while traveling for business. Do some heart-healing work in March and April when Venus goes retrograde. Still pining for an ex or clinging to bitterness? Do the hard but necessary closure work so you can finally move on.
MONEY & CAREER
Score! This is poised to be one of your luckiest career years in over a decade, as expansive Jupiter sails through Libra and your tenth house of ambition, fame and leadership until October 2017. You could relocate for a plum opportunity, score a promotion or even reinvent your whole professional path. Focus on enhancing your public image and positioning yourself as an expert or first-string choice in your field. Later this year a team project, perhaps involving technology, can help your big ideas go viral. With a new eclipse series sweeping through your financial sectors, there might be big changes (and windfalls) related to work, money and investments.
HEALTH & WELLNESS
Easy does it: With structured Saturn in your sleepy twelfth house, you need to take things slow and steady. Although Jupiter in your goal-driven tenth house inspires you to set big goals, you could run out of steam of you don’t rest properly. Get enough sleep, nurture your emotions and make sure you’re asking loved ones for support so you actually have time for your own self-care. This year may bring some heavy emotions or transitions, so working with a therapist or energy healer can keep you grounded through whatever comes up.
FAMILY & FRIENDS
Finding time for your personal life can be challenging in 2017, since work or a major responsibility consumes your energy. In March, Venus’ retrograde turn may force you to settle a rift or spend more time with loved ones, especially a female relative. Avoid getting dragged into senseless conflict. From October on, your social life gets revived, as Jupiter starts a 13-month visit to your friendship house, bringing an adventurous and inspiring cast of characters into your world.
