Dear Capricorn, this is your career horoscope for 2017:
You have every reason to move into the year with confidence, not only professional confidence but financial confidence as well, starting the year with lucky Jupiter in your career sector and with Venus in your income sector. You might not be convinced of that to start with, but once the fog of war clears you’ll like what you see and will even be grateful for the work/life balance tensions that came to a head in the final weeks of 2016. There is no doubt that with Jupiter in your career sector until the 10th October and his support crew staying on until early December this is set to be an explosive and expansive professional year for you. Jupiter is the planet that promotes growth and expansion and your career sector is the most competitively charged and professionally empowered part of your chart and when they come together, which they do once every 12 years, then you have the recipe for success. It won’t be handed to you on a silver plate, you will probably have to work harder than ever before, but there is one giant mountain with your name on it, success lies at the top and at the base is the support crew, the maps and the guides who will stay with you to the top. There could be some reluctance at the start, for you were walloped with some real wakeup calls in the final weeks of 2016, not just in terms of work/life balance issues, but just facing the reality of what is in front of you. You needed this, because you don’t just suddenly decide you’ll climb Mt Everest on a whim and head off without preparation and without fully comprehending what is in front of you. The last four months of 2016 were just getting to the base of the mountain, with the real climb taking the majority of the year. For the most part Jupiter will be on his own, with only a Full Moon in your career sector on the 11th April, but there will be a massive amount of support from the 22nd September and a huge amount of support from work forces from the 21st April to the 31st July. It is during that period that Mars, Ceres, Venus, Mercury and the Sun will all move through your work sector, not all at the same time but between them providing every possible resource. During that time they will not only support Jupiter in your career sector, but receive support, making these some of the best months of 2017 for both work and career matters, with the first six and the final four weeks likely to be the best. With Jupiter in retrograde motion from the 6th February to the 9th June, things will take off on the work front while the doors are open to the past, second chances and untapped potential on the career front. Support to bring Jupiter’s 13 month visit home will begin with the Sun’s return on the 22nd September, quickly followed by Mercury’s return on the 30th September. While Jupiter will leave on the 10th October, with Venus returning in November and Mars in December, you’ll be dancing with the planets of attraction and passion on that mountain peak come the end of the year. The best part of all, by the time you get there, you will know you have earned every bit of success open to you. From the get go don’t forget the lesson learned in the final weeks of 2016, with work/life balance essential in this very full on professional year.
