Family and career issues can require some serious juggling from you as Jupiter opposes Uranus on the 2nd. You may find that family members are demanding your time, or there is a need for you to put something urgent that comes up around family ahead of work.
Venus retrogrades in Aries on the 4th, in your 4th house of family. Venus will be retrograde until 15th April and this will slow you up as you try to do more for family. Again and again in March, your family either needs you to put them first, or is demanding that you do so. Issues around your parents, your children or a sibling could see you dropping everything to be a solid rock for family. But it isn’t all duty and sacrifice. From the 9th, Mars moves into Taurus, your 5th house of romance, children and creativity. With Mars in this sign you will put much more effort into your love life, whether that is an existing romance, or getting out there to meet someone new. Children will also be a high priority if you have them, and that can include trying to start a family, or expanding your existing one. Creative pursuits also benefit from this placement of Mars and you can push ahead with something creative whether it’s to make money or just for sheer enjoyment.
A Full moon in Virgo on the 12th falls in your 9th house. You may hear some good news about studies, international travel plans or be finalizing something related to people you deal with who are based overseas. Partnership is an important factor at this Full Moon and that goes for business as much as it does for love. One thing to watch now is a need for privacy, discretion or those secrets don’t get spilled. Saturn and this moon clash and cause some issues around these matters.
Mercury enters Aries on the 13th, your 4th house of family. You will have plenty to talk about with family members, or about family in general. Perhaps you are making plans with a partner to start a family of your own, or need to discuss how you can make family life work better and bring some harmony into the equation. Then on the 20th the Sun enters Aries and this puts the spotlight squarely on family. This comes around once a year, and it’s a good time to see how your family life is working out, or to make the effort to get in touch with family members, or get together and spend some quality bonding time.
Then on the 27th a New Moon in Aries brings a fresh start in family or a whole new chapter. This moon teams up with Venus and the Sun also in your 4th house. You are concentrating on family and also getting a lot of enjoyment from being around those you love. However family issues around privacy or a need for some time to yourself can also crop up today as Saturn clashes with this moon. Take care of the secrets of family members, or watch for one of your secrets spilling out and causing some ructions.
Jupiter and Pluto Clash on the 30th and this causes some issues with you around your career and a partner either in business or love. Someone doesn’t want to move or won’t be moved on an issue, and it will be very hard for you to strike a balance. You could be the one who refuses to budge, or a business partner or spouse could be like a brick wall. It will be hard to please everyone in this situation, you may need to let down this person, or your work could suffer today as you end up putting this partner’s needs first.
Mercury enters Taurus on the 31st in your 5th house. Communication in love gets a boost from this, however be aware that Mercury will retrograde from April 9th and this will make love relationships or those will your children harder to fathom. A lover could be hard to understand, or show no sign of understanding you and ditto if you have children. If you have been thinking about having children this probably isn’t the ideal time to be discussing that possibility. Creative projects can also be harder to negotiate now with constant slow downs or difficulties getting someone to sign off on important aspects of what you are working on. Leave all of these discussions until mid May if you can when Mercury is direct and not in the shadow of the retrograde.
4th - 10th July
Issues around family may be up and down this week, and money can become a problem between you and your spouse or one of your children. You may decide that you aren’t happy with the attitude of a family member towards money, and decide to counsel them about it. Or they may be spending your money in some sort of arrangement or loan and not being as responsible as they should be. Rather than lecturing, try to take a conciliatory approach.

This year your love life tends to be quiet and steady. There are no aspects that jump out to shock you, or throw you off course. If you are in a committed relationship, it looks as though you are content to just let things tick over. For singles, love and romance aren’t the major priorities this year and it’s not surprising as there as we are in the final year of your ruler Saturn in your 12th house, before it moves into Capricorn in December. You have been more intensely private about your life, your thoughts and all aspects of your thinking over the last three years. Someone that knew you before this time and only catching up with you again now, might think it odd that you are not as forthcoming. Interestingly, people you have met or become close to over the last three years, may be shocked when the real you jumps out at the end of the year and really lets loose. Saturn is at home in Capricorn, and while that means it will emphasise your tendency to be the mature one, the reliable and steady ship in an ocean of change and choppy waters, it will also free you up in a way you haven’t experienced in almost 27 years. The last time Saturn was in Capricorn was 1988 to 1991. Think back to that time in your life and all of the changes that took place. This isn’t a do over of that period, but it’s a good example of the big momentous change that takes place in your life with Saturn in your sign and how different you are before and after the teaching planet has visited you. Saturn will touch on all areas of your life, but perhaps revolutionise your love life and relationships most of all. It can be a period where a partner says to you during, or at the other end, I feel as though you are a completely different person. What changed? Those that have known you the longest will see this just as another facet of the essence of you. Newcomers could be in for some shocks. That serious side, that sense of duty is cast off to a surprising degree, in much the same way a snake sheds its skin in order to grow.
Mars will be in your 5th house from early March and you put more energy into romancing your partner, or getting out there and meeting someone brand new. Children and your creativity also figure highly in this house, so you spend more time with your children, or nurturing your creative passions. Mercury enters Taurus from the end of March but turns retrograde soon after causing chaos in the way you relate to your lover, or when trying to date. This clears up towards the end of the month, just as a New moon takes place in Taurus. I love this one for you Capricorn, there is plenty of support for communication in your relationships and it’s a day to note for doing something romantic for your partner. You will certainly be in the mood for love. A new step can be taken in a relationship under this moon, such as an engagement, moving into together or perhaps a decision to have children. Mercury turns direct in early May and then moves back into Taurus mid month. Its very easy to get what you want from love, and to talk about how you feel. Venus joins this loved up vibe in early June and you are happy to just enjoy your partner and shower them with plenty of affection through until early July. We don’t see any other major aspects in your romantic life until early November when a full moon takes place in your 5th house. You appear to be just coasting along and getting on with life through this second half of the year, and perhaps you are content enough in the situation you are in to not have to make any big display of your feelings.
Jupiter retrogrades in your 10th house from early February and this has you thinking about how you can take your professional life to it’s next stage. You tend to be less satisfied with the status quo now, and determined to shake things up. If you feel as though you’ve been stagnating you could jump ship suddenly and find a brand new workplace or role, without so much as a backward glance. There is no doubt in your mind that you are a hard worker and worth your weight in gold and there’s a good chance that any Capricorns taken for granted for too long, will up stumps and move on greener pastures. At the end of March you could find yourself with far too much work and no balance in your life. That may frustrate you Capricorn because now you are interested in nurturing your love life, or spending more of quality time with your children. A Full moon in Libra, April 11th is a gold star day at work, but again you are either saddled with too much work, or aren’t organised to the extent you would like to be. Pluto retrogrades in your 6th house from April 20th and it become clear very fast where your routines are bringing you undone. Did you let your fitness slide? Completely fall off the healthy eating wagon? You will be seeing the results now of the things you’ve let slide in your daily life. It will be hard to ignore. Jupiter turns direct in Libra from early June and if you didn’t jump before, you may just do so now. Any feeling that you are under appreciated, exploited, or just going nowhere fast, will see you exit stage left. You are willing to make your own luck always, but particularly so this year with Jupiter in your 10th house. In late September with the Sun in your 10th house we see a family situation working out well in relation to your professional life or your social standing. Pluto also turns direct today in your 2nd house, so money is also looking up and the next day Mercury enters your 10th house making you the communicator du jour. Venus joins the party in mid October and people like the look of you and think you have substance. Then a new moon in Libra just days after Venus arrives gives you the fresh start you need on a project or professional undertaking. Within days Mars is here to give you the energy and sheer force of will to push ahead and get what you want from your work. Heaven help anyone standing in your way and trying to stop you over this period. Mid December Saturn moves into your 9th house Capricorn. This is its starting point in a visit that will last three years. There is something to learn in this early stage of the transit which involves international travel, people from foreign countries and higher learning. Perhaps you need to take a new approach to these issues, or a fresh start is needed in order to forge ahead. You could come to the realisation that you need to study in order to reach the lofty goals you’ve set yourself for your career. Venus and the Sun enter your 9th house right in time for Christmas. Are you travelling overseas rather than sticking close to home? Or perhaps you are making the effort to still study while everyone else around you is relaxing. With Venus here, I tend to favour love, and see you travelling with a romantic partner, or enchanted by a foreign land.
Talk the good talk in early February as Mercury is in Aquarius and your 2nd house. You could sell ice to the eskimos now and without even a hint of shame on your face as you take their money and start counting it even before you’ve walked away from the deal. Make the most of it Capricorn, because money aspects don’t come up for you in any meaningful way again until early August. But oh when they do come, they are BIG. A Full moon Lunar Eclipse in Aquarius on this day is all green lights for your finances. This eclipse is joined by the Sun, Mars and Jupiter and we see something changing, transforming or possibly a contract that starts to pay off. The Sun and Mars are in your 8th house of transformation, and contracts. Jupiter is in your 10th house of career and business. Is this the moment that a job change is finally happening? If so get it done and dusted fast, because Mercury turns retrograde a few days later in Virgo and your 9th house. If the deal involves are foreign company, people based internationally or higher learning it will be very important to get things wrapped so that you don’t need a do over down the track.
Pluto turns direct in your 2nd house at the end of September and you’ve worked out now what you need to do to move ahead. There is no hesitation to go after chances that come you way, or to make some luck all on your own. This is the last of the aspects that are significant around money this year as you spend the remainder of 2017 just getting on with it and doing the job, or making it all happen.
