There has been a lot of internal, spiritual growth in the past two years, as the ruler of your Horoscope, Saturn, was moving through your 12th house, and there will be more later on in the year as Jupiter moves into this house on November 8. But now, your internal growth becomes visible to the world and to other people. Saturn has moved into your sign and will stay there for the next two years. Most people are uncomfortable with a Saturn transit, but for you it is good. Saturn will make you even more of a Capricorn than you already are. You will be even more organized, more structured, more of the manager than you have ever been.

Pluto, your planet of friends, has been in your sign for many years now. So, you have been attracting friends. They seem to come to you naturally without much effort on your part. This year, with Jupiter in your 11th house, there are even more friendships happening. These seem to be more on a spiritual type of level than usual.

Uranus has been in your 4th house of home and family for the past seven years, bringing much change and instability in the family circle. Happily, this is beginning to reduce a bit this year. Uranus moves out of your 4th house on May 16 and enters the 5th house of fun, creativity and children. This is a nice financial signal, as Uranus is your financial planet. It is also a good transit for your health. More on this later on.

Capricorn Horoscope 2018

Neptune has been in your 3rd house for many years now, and will be there for many more to come. Your intellectual interests are becoming more refined and spiritualized. You would enjoy poetry and spiritual literature. Siblings and sibling figures in your life are under strong spiritual influences too. Students below college level need to be careful of ‘mind wandering’ or daydreaming during class or study. Keep your focus on your studies.

Your most important interests this year are the body, image and personal pleasure; communication and intellectual interests; home and family (until May 16 and from November 6 onwards); children, fun and creativity (from May 16 to November 6); friends, groups and group activities (all year but especially until November 8); and spirituality (from November 8 onwards).

Your paths of greatest fulfilment this year are friends, groups and group activities (until November 8); spirituality (from November 8 onwards); sex, occult studies and personal transformation (until November 17); and love and romance (from November 17 onwards).

capricorn Health Self-Improvement 2018

(Please note that this is an astrological perspective on health and not a medical one. In days of yore there was no difference, both of these perspectives were identical. But now there could be quite a difference. For a medical perspective, please consult your doctor or health practitioner.)

Health is much improved this year, and it will get even better in the coming years. Uranus, which was in stressful aspect with you for the last seven years, is now moving into harmonious alignment. This year it is only in this new alignment for part of the year, but next year – from March onwards – it will be for the long haul. Saturn in a person’s sign is generally not a good health indicator, but for you, Capricorn, it is. He is the ruler of your chart, and always ‘friendly’ to you. Your empty 6th house is another positive health indicator. You have little need to focus here as there is nothing wrong. You sort of take good health for granted.

Good though your health is, it can be made even better. Give more attention to the following – the vulnerable areas of your chart (the reflex points are shown below). This is where problems are most likely to happen and by keeping these areas in good shape problems can mostly be forestalled (and even in cases where you can’t completely prevent a problem, it can be softened considerably; it need not be devastating).

  • The heart. This has only recently become an important area this year (really from late last month), but it will be important next year too. Worry and anxiety are said by spiritual healers to be the root cause of heart problems. Meditation will help you to avoid these emotions and, eventually, to transform them.
  • The spine, knees, teeth, bones, skin and overall skeletal alignment. These areas are always important for Capricorn, as your sign rules these areas. Regular back and knee massages should be a part of your normal health regime. Regular visits to the chiropractor or osteopath would be beneficial. The vertebrae need to be kept in alignment. Therapies such as Alexander Technique, Rolfing and Feldenkrais are good for the spine. The Alexander Technique, which educates the muscles in right posture, is an especially good preventive therapy. Good dental hygiene and regular check-ups are advisable. If you’re out in the sun, use a good sun screen.
  • The lungs, arms, shoulders and respiratory system. These are also always important for Capricorn, as Mercury, the planet that rules these areas, is your health planet. Arms and shoulders should be regularly massaged. Tension tends to collect in the shoulders and needs to be released.

Capricorn tends to physical leanness. But if you are one of the rare ones that need to lose weight this is a good year for it. Your efforts will be supported by the cosmos.

This is a good year for getting the image and body the way you want it to be on the ‘appearance’ level – the cosmetic level. We can liken the ruler of your Horoscope to your personal trainer. Saturn is concerned with your outer image. The ruler of your health house, Mercury, plays the role of your ‘personal physician’. He is concerned with your health and wellbeing more than with your outer look.

Mercury, is a fast-moving and often erratic planet. Sometimes he moves very fast, sometimes very slow, sometimes he’s stationary and sometimes he moves backwards. So there are a lot of short-term health issues that depend on Mercury’s status at a given time. These trends are best dealt with in the monthly reports.

capricorn Home and Family Self-Improvement 2018

As we mentioned, this has been an important – and volatile – area for at least seven years. Probably there have been multiple moves and renovations of the home over this period. You have the profile (and I know people like this) who upgrade and renovate their home and then sell it (at a profit). Then they move and repeat the process again and again. It’s a constant upgrading and moving. They upgrade the home the way you upgrade your computer and software. It goes on and on and on. In many cases it shows the search for the ‘dream home’ or the ‘dream domestic situation’. Every time you think ‘this is it, I’ve got it’ a new idea comes to you and you move on.

In many cases, there have been break-ups of the family unit, rifts in the family. Sometimes there has been a divorce, sometimes quarrels and realignments in new ways. The whole family situation is vastly different than it was a mere seven years ago.

You also have the profile of someone who is installing all the latest technical gadgetry in the home – smart alarm systems, video cameras connected to the internet, smart toasters and appliances. Anything high-tech is alluring. You’ve been spending a lot on the home and family – it’s been expensive. But the good news is that you earn from this area as well. Uranus, your financial planet, in the 4th house signals earning from home – perhaps in the form of a home office or home-based business. Your home is as much an economic centre as it is a home.

These trends are still in effect this year, but they are much weaker than they have been. The urge to move and renovate and upgrade is lessening. Uranus moves out of your 4th house on May 16 for several months, and by March of next year he will be out of the 4th house for good. So a lot of instability in the home and family life will subside. You’re probably settled in your current home for the long haul.

Uranus’s move into your 5th house between May 16 and November 6 is a harbinger of things to come. The focus will be less on the physical home and more on the children and children figures in your life. They will be more difficult to handle too. You can’t be your normal authoritarian self with them. They won’t accept it. You will have to explain – rationally – why such and such has to be done. You will have to appeal to their reason.

Uranus in your 5th house shows that the children and children figures in your life are going through many personal changes. For the next seven years they will be constantly redefining themselves and their image, constantly changing their ‘look’ and self-concept, constantly upgrading their image and personality. Every month or so it will be like you’re dealing with a ‘new person’.

Children and children figures will become more experimental with their bodies. They want to test its limits. This is basically good, but it needs to be done consciously and mindfully – not in daredevil type ways. Yoga, tai chi and the martial arts are safe ways to do this.

capricorn Finance and Career Self-Improvement 2018

Very important financial changes are happening in your life this year (and this is only the beginning), with your financial planet’s move out of your 4th house and into your 5th house. As we have said, this year it is only from May 16 to November 6. But next year, Uranus will move in for the long term.

So, you’re still spending and earning from the home, from the family and family connections this year. But as Uranus enters your 5th house there will be a financial shift too. With Uranus in Aries these past years, you were perhaps a bit impulsive in your financial decision making – perhaps too reckless. Perhaps you lusted after the ‘quick buck’ and got burned a few times. Uranus’s move into Taurus will bring a more conservative kind of outlook. The financial judgement will improve. And since Uranus will make beautiful aspects to Saturn, the ruler of your chart, there will be prosperity this year. (Next year looks even better.)

The financial planet in Taurus favours investments in copper, land, cattle and agricultural products. Companies that supply farmers are interesting investments.

The financial planet in the 5th house is a very fortunate aspect. There are various ways to read this and all could apply. The act of making money becomes enjoyable, a form of entertainment. You enjoy it as much as some people enjoy video games or the theatre. Making money is not just ‘necessity’ but a form of leisure. (I know many people who feel this way.) Another way to read this is as someone who enjoys his or her wealth – someone who spends more on leisure and fun activities. The symbolism here is of ‘happy’ money. This position favours the youth market – industries such as music and entertainment that cater to them. It shows spending more on the children and children figures in your life – perhaps investing in them. The children can be a source of income as well. Much depends on their age and stage in life. Those of appropriate age can be financially supportive. Younger children often have inspired ideas. And often they are the motivating force behind one’s earnings.

The financial planet in the 5th house makes you more speculative. But it will be different than it was over the past seven years. It will be more ‘controlled’ speculation – well thought out. It will not be rash and impulsive.

You’re coming out of a strong career year. You were very successful in 2017. This year, career is not a big deal. Most likely you’ve achieved your important career goals (the short-term ones at least) and have no need to focus here. Your 10th house is mostly empty: only short-term planets move through here. So in the career it is a stable year.

Since Venus, a fast-moving planet, is your career planet, there are many short-term career trends depending on where she is and the aspects she receives. These are best dealt with in the monthly reports.

capricorn Love and Social Life Self-Improvement 2018

Your 7th house of love is not a house of power this year. It is basically empty with only short-term planets moving through there. It is not a major focus (though there is fulfilment here after November 17). This tends to the status quo. You seem content with things as they are and have no pressing need to make changes. Those who are married will tend to stay married, and singles will tend to stay single.

There is one complication though. Saturn is now in your sign. While this is great for your business and management skills, it is not so great for love. Capricorns are cool customers as it is. Saturn in your sign can make you even cooler – cold – aloof – business-like – lacking in warmth and love. Someone who just wants to get the job done and get on with it. This can be a turn-off to many people, and especially to the current spouse, partner or romantic interest. You need to lighten up a bit and show more affection. Show more positive feeling. You will need to make this a goal. Every night before going to bed project love and warmth to others. One can be a good manager and still be a warm person.

Three eclipses will test your current relationship this year. There will be two Lunar Eclipses, which always test love (the Moon is your love planet). Then there will be a Solar Eclipse on July 13 that occurs in your 7th house of love. So three out of the five eclipses this year impact on your love life. Good relationships will survive, it’s the flawed ones that are endangered. We will discuss this more fully in the monthly reports.

For singles this is more a year for love affairs rather than marriage. This is especially so from May 16 to November 6. You’re attracted to ‘money people’ or to people involved in your finances.

If you are in or working on your second marriage, the year ahead is a stable one, but those working on the third marriage have romance this year – perhaps even a marriage. Those working on their fourth marriage also have a stable kind of year.

Parents and parent figures have endured severe testing of their marriages in recent years. It’s very unlikely that the relationship has survived. The testing is about over now; it is getting easier although the testing is still going on. If they are single, marriage is not advisable just yet. Siblings and sibling figures have a quiet romantic year. Children and children figures in your life are having an excellent social year. If they are of appropriate age there is serious romance. The only issue is the stability of this. They don’t seem ready for marriage commitment.

For all Capricorns this is a wonderful year for friendships and group activities – a happy area of life. New (and spiritual) friends are coming into the picture. It would be good to join spiritual-type groups this year. But groups involved in charities or altruistic kinds of activities would also fit the symbolism. You seem very active in the online social networking scene – a good source for making new friends.

capricorn Self-Improvement Self-Improvement 2018

Saturn in your sign is going to bring many wonderful things, as we have mentioned. It will strengthen your already strong sense of duty and responsibility. It will strengthen your management skills too. But there is a down side to this that you need to be aware of. Even without Saturn in your sign, you tend to look at the dark side of things. You like to contemplate the ‘worst case’ scenario in every situation, so that you can plan an escape route. But now Saturn is going to accentuate these tendencies. You can become overly focused on the dark side, overly pessimistic. Everything can look black. Often one feels older, much older than one’s years. And this will be true even for young Capricorns. If you overdo this, you can lose all hope, and thus extinguish any desire for improvement.

If you find yourself in this condition, break out of it as soon as possible. Don’t hang out in this negative psychic space. You might think that you’re just being ‘realistic’, but it’s not so. Meditation will be a big help here. Turn your focus to the Divine or to what you would like to achieve. Imagine yourself in this state. Live in where you would like to be, rather than what your feelings are telling you at the moment.

Jupiter, your spiritual planet, is making beautiful aspects to Neptune, the generic spiritual planet. So in the year ahead there will be many spiritual experiences – prophetic dreams, synchronicities, enhanced ESP abilities and a strong intuition. The dream life will be significant this year and you should record your dreams in a journal. If you have trouble remembering them, give yourself the suggestion before going to sleep that ‘I will remember my dreams’.

Those of you who are writers will be very inspired this year.

When Jupiter moves into your spiritual 12th house on November 8, he will make stressful aspects with Neptune, which can create some conflict between your path and the ‘general spiritual trend’ that’s around. It might seem to you that you’re being led ‘counter’ to the spiritual teachings that are popular. But this is only an appearance. The spiritual path is a very personal thing. Each person is, ultimately, his or her own path. It may take some time to see, but you’ll find that there’s no contradiction. What’s being taught publicly is true, and so are your personal guidance and personal path.
