Capricorn Travel and Higher Education 2016
The year starts with Mercury, the ruler of your 9th House of Travel and Education, moving retrograde in your sign until January 15. This can complicate a journey or postpone the completion of a learning project. Still, mobility will be easier for you this year: Constraining Saturn has finally exited this part of your chart after a two-year stay. This demanding planet will return briefly on April 7–July 21, though, reviving memories of lost luggage and missed assignments. Mobile Mercury’s retrograde in your 9th House on August 20– September 12 can also be a dicey time for hitting the road or the books, but otherwise the coast is clear for expanding your physical and philosophical horizons.
Capricorn Health and Vitality 2016
You have a chance to find new ways of being more comfortable in your body and at ease with your appearance with the Venus-infused eclipse in stabilizing Capricorn on January 15. It’s a great opportunity to replace boring old habits with pleasurable new ones. Paying more attention to health and vitality is essential now with metamorphic Pluto in your 1st House of Physicality forming tense squares with your ruling planet, Saturn, throughout the year. Managing your energy carefully is especially important when Saturn is opposed by the Sun on March 21 and pushed by Mars on July 31—both periods when stress levels may be rising. If you’re out of shape, these dates are ideal times to commit to proper diet and regular exercise.
