The serious, business-like Capricorn Sun arrives on Thursday, December 21, 2017 along with the celebrated Winter Solstice. As the year’s end approaches with all the festivities, it’s the perfect time to look at what we’ve accomplished in the last 12 months and make plans for 2018. I love that “what’s next?” question – a New Year, a blank calendar, great things are possible!
Tap into some of that leftover holiday energy because with Capricorn‘s affinity for work and organization, we can keep busy, accomplished and sensible. Strategize, tune up career moves, set up a networking campaign, determine whatever needs to be shaped up and do it. Make something happen. But don’t get so bogged down that you become rigid and over cautious. Relax, remember that you have a sense of humor – use it.
There are 2 major planet transits for the 10th sign of the Zodiac:
Pluto – deep feelings, possible changes in career direction, upheavel, rebirth (since 2008 until 2023)
Saturn – rules Capricorn so its influences will be tweaked. The visit lasts from 12/19/17 to 12/20/2020. Mature decisions, duty, responsibility are all highlighted for hopefully good results down the line.
