2016 Yearly Horoscope: capricorn


Your ruler Saturn's two year stay in the lofty Sagittarius is now underway, Cap, and you may have noticed ever so slightly in the past year or two how elements of your life are seemingly fading away.

It's subtle, as if you catch the action out of the corner of your eye, but you are in a finishing up phase, especially in career matters. What is actually happening is you are clearing the decks for a new bigger and better beginning.

Those wild-card eclipses in 2015 and into 2016 drop a hint or two about career elevation or change as early as March, but it isn't until September that Jupiter moves into the Tenth House and actually spells out new happenings that could be eminent.

As the year begins you have Pluto in the First House of your chart and there is a new intensity to you personally as well as in both love and career relationships. This is basically a getting-in-touch-with-yourself transit and you could be surprised at your own control issues and how deep they really go.

Despite this new awareness you just can't help yourself, especially in those hot and sexy matters of the heart. You might actually stake a claim this year.


Pluto has moved into the First House of your chart, where it will stay for years into the future, and your personality has quietly begun undergoing a makeover.

For the first half of 2016 that makeover speeds up with aggressive Mars in the Eleventh House, creating an intensity that previously was reserved strictly for career purposes, but it's doing double duty this year. Your body language, which has always been similar to a yellow caution signal, has been sufficiently weakened by the heat from Pluto in your sign, and may be permanently stuck on green for the whole year.

Two star-studded months stand out in the upcoming year and they are June and July. The summer months are hot... and I don't mean just the temperature. With three or four stars filling the Seventh House of love, they create a wildly romantic but possibly secretive love affair to remember. There should be enough fireworks, adrenaline rushes, and delicious love at first sight experiences to move any relationship into the fast lane.

Neptune is in the Third House and Jupiter is in the Ninth House of how we interact with our lovers. They are vying for first place in communication styles as well as increasing your intuitive powers.

Saturn, the tiniest and the toughest star in the solar system and the ruler of your chart, has arrived in the Twelfth House of secrets and spirituality with not just a suitcase, but a trunk. He's planning on staying for the next two years at least. In the trunk are all the reminders of what has faded from your life, and what was black and white may now appear in bright hues. Your divine intuition is heightened even more and you'll be surprised at the hidden strengths and wicked desires that escape from that piece of luggage during the upcoming two years.

Venus, the goddess of love, is literally running through the Zodiac lineup and in November she's right back where she started in the mysterious Twelfth House and immediately bumps into Saturn for the second time this year.

Does this mean that a relationship has matured enough that it's getting the okay to move into the limelight or announce some kind of commitment? If that's the case, Capricorn, in December when she dashes into your sign for the second time it could be there is a new romantic alliance being announced during the holiday festivities. Or possibly the two of you just show up and simply that visual makes its own announcement. This is a year you will long remember!


It isn't an accident that you are probably the most ambitious of the Zodiac signs with Saturn, the architect of destiny, as your ruler. It's similar to having a powerful father figure watching over you since you were a child, gently nudging you in the right direction. In 2016 he is in the Twelfth House, the finishing up house.

Sometime within the next two years, Capricorn, it will occur to you that you want more than career expansion, you want to expand on your talents. For example, if you are an actor you might want to take your turn in the director's chair. If you aren't feeling it at this moment, give yourself a year or so, and suddenly you'll feel a shot of adrenaline. Voila, a new idea is born. That idea is just a baby at this particular time, but we all know how quickly babies grow.

As if you don't have enough to think about at this point, here comes Mars setting up camp in the Twelfth House of group activities, or meeting influential people that raise your consciousness about your goals. Your old buddies and colleagues are important during this transit, as with Jupiter in this place they are more supportive than usual.

In March this warrior star moves into the Twelfth with Saturn and together the two of them support any new ideas you conjure up. It doesn't appear that you can be in a better time Capricorn. This is the year for finishing up projects, boning up on new skills, and concentrating on the future.

Jupiter, the biggest star (not bigger than the Sun, though) in the Zodiac lineup, is in the Ninth House, broadening your perspective so in effect he's working right along with Saturn. He's exposing you to a broader world and a new perspective on career, work, or lifestyle. The Ninth is Jupiter's natural house and he is at his best here as he urges you to mature and be open to more career possibilities. Good luck, Capricorn!
