Your January 2017 Monthly Horoscope: Capricorn

We’re constantly fascinated by what our zodiac sign says about our lives, whether it's which signs are most compatible, how Mercury Retrograde affects us (it can actually help your love life BTW), or how each sign handles conflict in relationships. That's why Bustle has enlisted Mecca Woods, a New York City-based Astrologer of to tell us all about how astrology is affecting our lives each day. Today's topic: The January 2017 monthly horoscope for capricorns.

Happy birthday, Capricorn! Fresh off the December 29 New Moon in Capricorn, you should be ready to get started on making all your dreams come true in 2017. Though this month may feel a bit stop-start (thanks to Mercury retrograde), it doesn’t mean that you can’t get what you want in January.

Below, you'll see what's in store for you during your birthday month, Caps, from your love life to your career life to your luckiest dates this January (you may want to keep an eye on January 11, wink wink).

Your Love Life In January:

Austin Courrege/Bustle

The first half of the month is strongest for you when it comes to love as you could find yourself feeling the most confident than you have in quite a long time, drawing admirers to you like moths to flame. Someone might even pop the question! Though with Mercury still retrograde until the 8th, keep those exes at bay. *Growl*

Your Career In January:

Austin Courrege/Bustle

The first half of January may feel as slow as molasses, especially with Mercury retrograde in your sign until the 8th, and a clash between the Sun (power) in Capricorn and Jupiter (opportunity) in Libra on the 11th which might have you feeling like you’re running in a giant circle. Look to the second half of January, especially after the New Moon in Aquarius (Jan 27) for better opportunities to make that cash.

Your Family & Friends In January:

Austin Courrege/Bustle

Things may get a bit tense on the home front this month – though the cosmic clashes that’s in store could help you resolve some things you need to get off your chest. Look to your friends to provide you with a few welcome escapes when things become a little too crazy.
