Capricorn Horoscope: December 2017

Personal foundation

Get ready to stretch your muscles, Capricorn, because you're about to embark on a personal marathon that will require every ounce of your endurance, flexibility, and commitment.

Saturn, your ruling planet of discipline and maturity, will enter your sign on December 19 -- the first time in nearly 29 years! Read that sentence again, Cappy, and allow its magnitude to take hold. You're about to walk into one of the most significant phases of your entire life. Will it be easy? No. Will it be worth it? Absolutely.

Here's the deal. With Saturn moving into your sign and remaining there through December 2020, you're about to embark on a journey that truly tests your mettle in terms of personal goals and ambitions. At several points over the next couple of years, you'll willingly assume new and sometimes daunting responsibilities that will remind you just how much you can carry as you climb up your personal mountain of life success. For some, this will be a time of real initiation into adulthood, which may include getting married, having a baby, or making significant career strides. For others, it'll be a time of personal revelation where you need to come to terms with certain limitations in a realistic and mature fashion.

You might also struggle with overcoming any fear of success and/or fear of failure that you've had over the years. Work through it, and remember to stretch. When you feel yourself becoming too rigid, you know it's time to lighten up.

Happily, Saturn rules Capricorn, so you might feel more like yourself than you have in quite some time while going through this transit. And yes, you will certainly have something significant to show for it once Saturn moves on. Why? Because you're about to earn your keep. For real.
