2017 is a great year for Capricorn’s career and social life, thanks to Jupiter transiting the tenth house. The best astral influences are experienced by those born under this sign starting from the first day of 2017 until the 6th of February, then between 9th of June and 11th of October. In the second half of the year, the greatest astrological event is Saturn entering Capricorn.
Below, I describe the most important planetary transits that influence Capricorn in 2017, regarding money, career and business: Jupiter direct in the tenth house (January 1st-January 6th), Jupiter retrograde in the tenth house (February 6th-June 9th), Full Moon in the tenth house (April 11th), Mars in the sixth house (April 21st-June 4th), Jupiter direct, for the second time in 2017, in the tenth house (June 9th-October 11th), Mars in the tenth house (October 22nd-December 9th) and Saturn entering the first house (December 20th).
JANUARY 1ST-FEBRUARY 6TH: ASK FOR A RAISE, GET A PROMOTION! – With the benevolent and enthusiastic Jupiter moving forward in the house of career and social status, your work and career get a major boost, in the first month of 2017. This is a good time to go ask for a raise or to get a promotion. If you do not obtain a new and better position within the same company, maybe you have to find a new and better job, where you will be more appreciated. Jupiter will support you to find a new job. Just focus on your strengths, think about things you’re good at, customise your CV for each recruiter you meet and go for it! Authority figures and influential people (parents, bosses, mentors, teachers or spiritual gurus) have a kindly attitude toward you, during this transit. This period of time is particularly beneficial for those Capricorns having jobs in public relations, administration, politics, performing arts and showbiz – it will be expanded audience and acknowledgement for their work.
FEBRUARY 6TH-JUNE 9TH: FIND WAYS TO IMPROVE YOURSELF! – During these four months, Capricorns have to improve their professional skills, in order to fulfil their projects and their professional goals. Capricorn employees discover that they need to complete their studies and to expand their knowledge. So, between February and May 2017 it is a good time to take some college courses online, to participate in conferences and workshops, to read more (remember that all the billionaires are doing it!) and to try to become the best in your domain of expertise. In just two words: self-improvement. Or, if you like it better, personal development. Then, you will be able to create new goals for yourself, that are bigger and more daring than you would’ve previously thought possible.
APRIL 11TH: PROMOTE YOURSELF, HIGHLIGHT YOUR ACCOMPLISHMENTS! – The Full Moon in the tenth house is the time when everyone notices you, whether you want it or not. Now, with Moon in Libra opposite the Sun in Aries, it is the best time to highlight your accomplishments and to promote yourself. You have to create an effective action plan, to prepare yourself for meeting a lot of people, going to a job interview or speaking in front of a large audience. These are only few possibilities – every Capricorn has to choose the right action, having the best chances to make a difference. But this decisive action must include self-promotion. Renounce the false modesty and speak freely about yourself – no one knows better than you what you have accomplished and where you want to go, in your career.
APRIL 21ST-JUNE 4TH: MORE ENERGY THAN EVER, AT WORK. USE IT CONSTRUCTIVELY! – With the powerful and energetic Mars transiting their sixth house (astrological house of jobs and employments), Capricorn employees have more energy than ever, at work. Their productivity is enhanced and they succeed to accomplish all their tasks, every day. They are always in control off their time, don’t get distracted and stay mentally alert. Having much energy at their disposal, Capricorns should get regular exercise, so that they can channel excess energy constructively and knowing that physical activity also improves emotional and mental health. So, this period of time between 21st of April and 4th of June is great for building a work-out routine or for starting your own amateur sports team.
JUNE 9TH-OCTOBER 11TH: For the second time this year, Jupiter transits your tenth house, bringing increased public recognition and professional success. Like in January, there could be a raise, a promotion, new job opportunities, maybe a major award. You have four months to take advantage of this beneficial astrological transit.
OCTOBER 22ND-DECEMBER 9TH: TRY TO AVOID CONFLICT AT WORK! – On October 11th, the benevolent Jupiter leaves the house of career and social status, where it will return only after 11 years, in 2028. But it doesn’t mean that this house remains empty for a long time. On the contrary: after only eleventh days, Mars is entering the tenth house, making Capricorns powerful and determined to push ahead, until they reach their goals like a mountain goat reach the summit. No obstacle will get in the way of Capricorn’s success, but there are some risks, caused by the competitive and even warrior influence of Mars. Sometimes during this period, it will be difficult for Capricorn employees to avoid conflict in the workplace. If you can not to avoid it, sometimes is better to address the conflict sooner. Don’t wait until you and a colleague feel completely hostile towards one another, but try to discuss the problem face-to-face as soon as possible! And, if the conflict degenerates, try to involve a third party!
STARTING DECEMBER 20TH: MORE RESPONSIBILITY – Saturn, the ruler of Capricorn, enters the first house and helps you to become more realistic. You feel more mature and you can take on more responsibility. But this is a long-term transit, so that I’ll speak more about it the next year.
