2017 Yearly Capricorn Horoscope
If there’s anything challenging about 2017 for you, Capricorn, it’s that the year will be more about exploration than it is about action. It will be more about what you can learn than what you can achieve.
As a Capricorn, one of your greatest strengths is your ability to focus on a goal, to set a target and to stick with it until you’ve seen that objective take form. This ability is not only one of your greatest strengths, it inspires others. The fact is, many Capricorns put this skill to work by creating organisations or arrangements that benefit others by creating jobs.
For this reason, you often feel the weight of the responsibility for others, for family, employees or colleagues, on your shoulders. Consequently, you’re always looking ahead towards what needs to be done next. You’re careful about what you do, and commit to, knowing that your decisions could influence others, now and in the future. While this has led to many accomplishments, these commitments have also created restrictions. You’ve been longing to break away, but haven’t known where to begin. Now, during 2017, you’ll find that events lead the way. They actually demand that you think of things in a completely unaccustomed manner. If one phrase could be used as a theme for the year, that phrase is ‘broaden your horizons’.
While you’re by no means rigid in your thinking, once you’ve figured out a formula that works, you tend to stick with it. You hate wasting time on unnecessary exploration or experimentation. And it’s not until you’ve come across something that you’re convinced is new and better that you’ll begin to think about making changes.
During 2017 a series of events, encounters, discussions and new ideas take you down differing avenues. Not everything will work as you’d hoped. But what you learn as a result your experiences will improve your judgement and, most of all, give you a far wider perspective on life.
These events are particularly focused around the year’s eclipses, in mid-March and in mid-September. During these periods, discussions either force you to examine existing arrangements or new ideas come your way, many that might otherwise not have crossed your mind.
With your ruler, Saturn, remaining in the part of your chart that has to do with joint ventures in general and with the practical side of those ventures in particular – that is, with the use of your resources, your time, your money and even your ideas – you’ll be reflecting on what is in your best interests. You may find yourself thinking about doing things or going places that you’ve always regarded as impractical or even self-indulgent. Intriguing offers could come from out of the blue.
Here, again, this is a process. While no single day could be said to be the turning point, the odds are good that what you experience or learn around 31 August, when your ruler Saturn forms a rare and powerful aspect to Neptune, the planet of vision, could not only be interesting, but could lead to far-reaching changes. If you’ve already explored various ideas and options, what you’ve learned will mean you’re better informed, and able to take advantage of what arises, who you encounter or even surprising developments.
In every case, however, the important thing is to remember that what comes your way around this time is only one piece of the puzzle and that it may not be until you’re able to view situations in retrospect that you’ll recognise how each of those will influence the ultimate decisions you make.
Of perhaps the greatest importance during 2017 will be that you’ll rediscover the joy of learning. There are times when you become so bogged down in what you must do, in obligations, in life’s practicalities, that you forget how much fun life can be. With the expansive Jupiter actually accenting new ideas and those with whom you undertake them, you’ll be feeling inquisitive and restless. You’ll be thinking about what could happen, about where encounters could take you and may even rediscover the childlike enthusiasm for the unknown, the feelings you experienced when you were younger, but which seemed to vanish as life’s burdens accumulated.
Similarly, you’ll rediscover the importance of balancing love, time spent with those you care about and time spent doing what you enjoy, with life’s pleasures. Focus on this during the year, and gradually you’ll re-establish the balance that is so important to enable you to both achieve what you wish and enjoy life in the process.
Capricorn Horoscope- the Sea Goat
December 22nd to January 20th
The horoscope sign Capricorn is the tenth sign of the zodiac and is symbolized by the sea goat. The ancient Greeks connected goats with climbing. The fish tail it has symbolized the winter rains. The Greeks also considered this constellation to be the “Gateway of the gods” and this is where dead men’s souls passed after death. The Greeks related the sign to the horned god Pan. Pan encountered the beast Typhon and while attempting to get away, he turned his lower half into a fish so he could swim away safely.
Capricorn is the third of the Earth Signs making them down to earth realists. Security and dependability are their mainstays. Capricorn is ruled by Saturn. Saturn is the planet that gives us our personal ethics, self control, patience, self discipline and the perseverance and determination to overcome obstacles and hardships. These obstacles allow us to grow and makes us strong. Capricorn is ruled by the Tenth House called the House of Occupation and Calling.
They are also one of the Cardinal signs which means they don’t wait around for others to take action. Capricorns are the probably the most ambitious, stable and serious of all the signs. Their ambition drives them to achieve and they aren’t afraid to work hard to achieve their goals. With their eyes always focused on their goals, the tenacious goat climbs its unwavering ascent into getting ahead and not faltering along the way.
Capricorn Traits and Capricorn Personality
Capricorns are intelligent and hard working but they lack social graces and charm. They don’t like experimenting with new things being too orthodox in their views and they don’t like taking risks, but sometimes in life we all need to take risks. Capricorns should be more willing to take risks or they may find that progress and growth will leave them far behind.
Both Capricorn and Leo are the power signs but each assumes power differently. Leo with their regal bearing, compassion and elegance assumes power naturally while Capricorn assumes power out of a sense of duty. They are also better managers and administrators than Leos are. They are good organizers and are conscientious, patient, industrious and sedulous workers. They set very high standards for themselves and once they set their minds to doing something, they will see it through to the end long after other signs will give up.
Yet while they set high standards for themselves, they expect others to share these same ideals. Others may become resentful of them because Capricorns can be too constrained in their views. The Saturnine influence gives the Capricorn their stern discipline while never letting emotions get in the way. They have a tendency towards being melancholy and pessimistic and if they are not careful can fall into selfishness and constant worrying and complaining over nothing. They have good memories with a clear headedness, logic and rationale and they love to engage in debates.
In personal relationships They are usually very uncomfortable in them. Like Scorpio and Pisces they are difficult to get to know. They take a long time falling in love and are not prone to emotional displays of affection, which, may make them seem like they are unfeeling and indifferent but this is not so. It’s just they prefer to wait until they know where they stand with the object of their affection before showing affection and love. They prefer a partner that is practical like themselves and like structured and routine relationships. Once They are married they make faithful spouses but can get jealous.
While they don’t make friends easily, they are extremely loyal to the friends they have.

Capricorn Birthstone / January Birthstone
With Sun in Aries, you will enjoy beginning new projects and do not have to look far to find the courage needed for enterprise. Aries Sun folks are willful and strong of heart, making fast decisions and swift judgements. Along with this, they do have a reputation for having a quick temper as well, though I find that this is more common in the Moon placement of Aries than the Sun. Instead, it might be fool-hardy, spur of the moment decisions that give this reputation, as an Aries Sun feels the need to act angry to defend their personal honor.
Sun in Aries can have the tendency to act selfishly or self-centeredly. They tend to be very impatient, not waiting for an answer to a question they have asked before belting out the next topic on their mind. These folks have no patience for folks who are slow or reflective. Dynamic and charismatic, These people tend to make an impression on everyone they meet. Not always a good impression, mind you, but always an impression none the less! If an Aries Sun cannot begin something the moment they get an idea, chances are it won’t begin at all. However, once an Aries Sun begins something, look out! If they have other placements that show an aptitude for patience and perseverance, they can get things done with the best of them. One thing to look out for with this placement is the need to act on a challenge. Most folks with an Aries sun cannot decline a dare, and there could be a disastrous result if the person doesn’t use common sense in these areas before reacting.
