Annual Horoscope for Capricorn Born of the Third Decan

Theme for 2017: There’s a Good Year Ahead of You

Mercury, and Saturn. In order to get the most out of their presence, it’s good to know what to expect from each of them.

The Sun is the ruler of the year. You could compare the influence of the year’s ruling planet to the power of a classical conductor. Of course, the orchestra is important – in our case, the other planets – but the conductor determines what piece is to be played, as well as the tempo, and – especially important – manages the interaction of the musicians. In this regard, it’s good to have the Sun in charge. With Mercury as the sub-ruler of your sign's decan, there's a strong relationship between this planet and the Sun. This will show to your advantage in 2017, when you can count on the Sun’s goodwill. What impact can this have? Quite a large one, in fact. Everything will become a bit easier; you’ll be under less stress, and have the chance to simply enjoy life more often.

As mentioned, Mercury is the regent of your Capricorn decan. His path through the heavens, therefore, has an impact on you. As you may know, most of the time, Mercury advances, clearing the road for you to make good progress, good contacts, and have good business. However, there will be three phases in 2017 during which Mercury is in retrograde. During these periods, you can expect things to be backward for you too. Your progress will stall, there will be obstacles in your path, and it will take some work to clear the way once more. As long as you’re aware of these phases, you can take measures to work through them, so consider reading more about when Mercury goes retrograde in 2017.

The third planet is Saturn, who’ll take on an important role this year, playing the solo in your “star orchestra”. Even under normal circumstances, you would profit from his involvement, but in 2017, you can count on him one hundred percent. You still have to expect a certain amount of discord; problems will arise that force you to navigate new waters, and thereby make you smarter and stronger too. On the whole, positive influences will prevail in 2017. You will progress and be spared from any great calamities. By fall at the latest, you’ll receive news that will make you very proud.

Your Love Life

Expect strong feelings, but also many demands from your partner. Capricorns can often be perceived as cold and distanced, which often gets in their way when it comes to love. You want to feel until you lose ground, be passionate to the depths of your soul. You’re looking for new experiences in eroticism, and, acting like a typical Capricorn, you seek out information, test it, try it out, and discover even more novelty. A side effect of your passion may be that you’re somewhat intimidating. You are already strong – and your planets this year make you even stronger. Singles among you also have demands of prospective partners. Your ideal match has depth, values commitment, totality. Luckily, you will meet such people this year, and many of you will find long-lasting partnerships. Your best times for love are in January, March, June, August, and October.

Your Career

In the first three months of the coming year, you’ll have to overcome obstacles from time to time. Try to be positive about it: the difficulties will make you grow. Don’t shy away from a challenge, but rather push forward, surge ahead, elbows out! The reward for your effort will come in fall, at the latest. Then, in addition to the Sun and Mercury, you’ll have another special benefactor in the sky: Jupiter. One thing to remember is this: you need to be ready for sudden change. Look out for change yourself, and be open to it, even if the change comes from outside. Have faith. Uranus is in a challenging position for you, and wants to bring about great change in your life. If you make room for this change, and work towards it instead of against it, you’ll be successful

Your Health

In 2017, one of your major maladies – muscle or bone aches, rheumatism, sciatica, and knee problems - could become even worse. From an astrological point of view, such ailments are inherent to Capricorns. Think of it this way: if your character hardens, your body follows suit and stiffens up. In 2017, you have a lot on your plate and a certain rigor is expected of you. But respect your body too, and be on the look-out for signals of stress. Give your body a treat now and then: long baths, time in the sauna, maybe even a massage now and then.
