December 2017 Monthly Horoscope for Capricorn
The planetary concentration is now at the most eastern position in your chart this month. This symbolizes your personal identity, independence, and necessities. You will focus a lot on yourself and the changes you need to make for your personal happiness. Your career goals will also be redefined, in addition to how you see the future in general.
Venus will be in your 12th house starting on the 1st until the 25th of December. If you are in a relationship, you will feel extremely tied to your partner and often confuse your needs with theirs. This is the house of the subconscious, so all of your deepest fears and desires will manifest this month. In some way, you might feel conflicted in love, and will need to express your feelings clearly to understand what is going on. You can get hurt quite easily if you are in love, feeling much more vulnerable than usual, especially if your affections go unreciprocated. You will be extra giving this month, and very compassionate towards all people in your life. If you are a single Capricorn, you will be drawn to a lot of different people, and will be open to having casual or serious relationships. The more romance you can get the better! On the other hand, you may feel more discreet about having these relationships out in the open. You may feel the need to keep them secretive or have short affairs. This is because you are hiding from yourself, and you are afraid to get hurt this month.
Mars enters your 11th house of friendships on the 9th of December. You will channel your inner humanitarian, and see the ways in which you can create an environment to promote the highest good. You will invest a lot of your energy focusing on ways to fix the problems of society, and will develop a new perspective on how to solve these issues. Because you have close friendships rather than a larger social circle, you will share your ideas and opinions with others whom you trust. You will be more dreamy than usual in this alignment, as you have high hopes for the future. You will also apply yourself at work to achieve your personal goals, but will need to focus on building a team in order to create the greatest success. You are independent and strong-willed, so this may not be your strong suit, but cooperation and compromise are key here, Capricorn. Let your hardened self-soften up a little!
On the 20th, Saturn moves into your 1st house. This is usually an uncomfortable alignment for other zodiac signs, but for you dear Capricorn, this alignment is quite natural. Saturn is the disciplinarian of the solar system, and he is also your planetary ruler. You and Saturn are both hard working, take responsibilities seriously, and are methodical in how you approach life. This alignment will further emphasize your true nature, however, Saturn may make you overly cautious. Over the next few years, you will really begin to apply yourself in your career, choosing an environment that emphasizes production, accomplishments, and clear goals rather than experience within the process. You will feel very organized, steady, and practical at work, and your supervisors will see you as a foundational employee within the organization. You will feel quite comfortable in a job that is routine and that requires planning, which might make you shift careers over the next few years. Saturn will help you redefine your sense of duty and honor in work, and you will also find fulfillment by helping others achieve their goals. You will focus on self-sufficiency, financial security, and independence from authority in this house. This is probably the most perfect alignment for you in the chart, dear Capricorn!
Mercury will be transiting retrograde through your 12th house of the subconscious starting on December 3rd until the 23rd. You will have to exercise patience here, as a project you have been working hard on, seems to stand still. You will have to rely on movements behind the scenes to take place, but it is best not to make assumptions about the process or outcome. After Mercury stations direct towards the end of the month, things will begin to flow and materialize. It is an also a good time to get closure on an issue that has been bothering you for some time. Because this is the house where inner workings and hidden feelings reside, the Universe encourages you to reexamine problems in your life that are still causing you to suffer. Define your attitudes and perceptions of past events, relationships, or aspects of yourself, so that you can let go of old beliefs that no longer serve you now.
Jupiter also remains in your 11th house of friends well into next year. You will expand your social connections and make more friends than you ever thought possible! While you can be somewhat stubborn and fixated, Jupiter will bring you a lot of people who might break down these walls. You will feel joy from hearing and expressing new ideas that are more progressive than your conservative nature. Jupiter will expand your awareness of your community and also introduce you to other ways of learning, growing, and contributing to cultural society. You are spiritually quite inclined in this alignment as well, and will be seeking an enlightened path to walk upon.
This is a very interesting month for you, Capricorn! With planets transiting between the very beginning and end of your chart, you are quite balanced between your personal identity, and the identity of your higher self. This may lead to spiritual exploration as well as a deeper understand of the nature of reality. You will also enjoy good health all month long, making your goals even easier to achieve. You are powerful and strong this month, and the stars encourage you to shine, accomplish, focus, and dream!
