Capricorn 2017 stars: your year ahead

Feel a little like Goldilocks? Too busy, too quiet … if you’ve been searching for that perfect work-life balance, you might finally get it right. For early- to mid-January Goats, the winds of change will be blowing up a gale, but Pluto’s journey through Capricorn is encouraging you to grow and evolve.

As you embrace change, your interests may become broader and more eclectic, and as a result, your circle of friends with expand. Winter may bring dinner parties and intimate tete a tetes, but spring will propel you out and about; as a love for music and culture blossoms, you might even join a local choir or theater group.

Keywords: productive, transformational, social, innovative… coping with change

Love & friendship

Outside obligations may feel heavy, but sometimes, work and play can interweave in interesting ways; an office romance or family enterprise might even materialise. Winter’s sensual starscape could cast a magical spell for lovers (try to slip away in June or August), while singles may find a budding relationship deepening over late-night heart-to-hearts. By October that social, community-minded side will be rearing to go. Cultural events, fundraisers, sporting groups … your energetic approach could make a real difference.

Cash & career

Capricorns tend to be cautious, but this year you’ll be bursting with inventive ideas. New business and money-making schemes may get you excited, but over-capitalising could be a problem until spring, so don’t get carried away. Brush up skills through autumn or if you’re ready to reinvent yourself, consider a full-blown course. The August 22 eclipse could bring a financial shake-up, but spring’s canny patterns should prove to be inspired. Firm up those foundations, then prepare to step into your next stage of life.

Health & wellbeing

Balance is the keyword this year, and that includes your health. Sure, boot camps and fad diets can bring dramatic results, but for longevity, get back to the basics. If Easter proves indulgent, April’s go-getter stars should prove timely; as energy levels climb through May, sporty Goats might even join a local team. Social pastimes like tennis and walking might appeal through spring, along with musical or cultural events, and what a brilliant way to unwind. Catch some live entertainment if you can, or sign up for a few lessons.

Capricorn travel style

Capricorns tend to be hard workers, making rest and relaxation all the more important. Being worriers, preplanned, low-stress holidays should suit best; think package tours, ocean cruises or all-inclusive resorts and you’ve got the picture.

TRY: Classic railway journey, farmstay, Hunter Valley vineyard, Adelaide Comedy festival, hinterland health spa, Canberra museums, Fijian island, Uluru glamping, Tasmanian heritage B&B, Pacific cruise, European bus tour

Capricorn food & fitness style

Your grounded nature responds best to earthy, tasty food. Being a creature of habit, you’ll always want veggies, meat, rice and pasta as your staples, but change can be as good as a holiday. To boost your calcium intake, be sure to include plenty of cheese, almonds and fish in your diet.

Your staying power is legendary, and so is that determination. Running and competitive sports may appeal when younger, but look after those knees, as they can play up; keep your joints supple with plenty of Pilates or strengthening exercises, and be sure to mix things up. Mountain climbing, boating, beach walking, weight lifting … it’s all good.

Capricorn gemstones and crystals

Jet and onyx (your ruling stones, to support self-confidence), amber, azurite, carnelian, tourmaline, peridot, clear quartz, smoky quartz, turquoise. I you’d like to order any crystals please email … I often have a few in stock.
