2017 is the year that Capricorn starts to see the peak of the mountain that you have been climbing forever. You have been patiently plodding uphill for years and at last, yes at last, the prize is within reach! All you have to do now is keep really cool and not come out with any overly ambitious schemes that topple over the whole house of cards. Keep playing those cards real close to your chest as some unscrupulous people could steal your best ideas from right under your hoofs.
In your social life you are also reserved and at times feel like hibernating. You need this period to work on slowly creating your new butterfly self and anyway you don’t want distractions from the important goals ahead. The only place you are being really extrovert and pushy is in the business world. If you are not much of an entrepreneur you will still be noticed for your status in some way, even if it’s just “In A Relationship” on Facebook.
There will be much weeding out of any dead wood that has built up in your life. You don’t want any false hangers-on when you hit the big time, so it’s best to cut ties with them now. You want to sail full speed ahead when the winds of success hit you, so no extra passengers! The purging of old contacts will feel good, so will re-purifying the body either by having sex or not having sex! By that I mean, if there are cobwebs on your nether regions due to inactivity then the lovemaking will revive you.
On the other hand, if you have been in receipt of too many toxic love demons then you might need to be celibate for a while. Generally you are still recovering from the intense revelations and transformative action of Uranus square Pluto over the last few years, so be kind to yourself. Don’t let partners pressurise you with over-the-top, sexual demands that cross your boundaries. You are confident at work, but in your romantic life you still feel a little tender.

Prizes and awards of excellence are possible, as is graduating from college.
