Capricorn Love Horoscope for December 2017

Rising to the occasion


Although you might have a few things to sort out in your head this month, there's one area of your life you're about to become more certain than ever: personal responsibility in relationships.

Saturn, your ruling planet of commitment, discipline, and lessons, will enter your sign for the first time in nearly 29 years on December 19 and remains here until 2020. As you can probably guess, this will be quite a significant transit for you and your world. It can initially feel as if life has suddenly become more somber and more real when Saturn moves through your sign. You're being called to take on a level of maturity that you might never have before. This can feel daunting for some people. In many ways it's as if you're lifting up that huge boulder and you know that what lies ahead is a very long and arduous climb up a mountain as you carry it.

Interestingly enough, this is a boulder of your own choosing. That's right, Capricorn. Although you'll take on a weighty new responsibility, you are consciously deciding to go down this path. And if there is any sign who knows how to work well with Saturn's limitations and delays, it's you because Saturn rules you. As a result, you naturally vibrate to an energy that demands prudence, discipline, and realism.

How will all of this be applied to love and relationships? If you're single, this is a time when you're likely to become quite serious about building a personal foundation that allows you to display to a prospective partner exactly how much you truly have to offer in a relationship. If you're dating someone, you might be ready to embrace a serious commitment such as marriage or starting a family. If you are married already, it's possible that you'll have to take on a new obligation or responsibility in your marriage. You'll do it with love.
