2008 - Capricorn Astrology Forecast

For Capricorn natives, the year 2008 means first of all cooperation with the others and accepting changes. Although you are generally a lonely person, in 2008 teamwork will be both inevitable and favorable to you.

Jupiter has been in Capricorn since 2007 and it will stay there all year round in 2008. Jupiter in your sign announces a series of changes for the better on all levels: you might find great love or settle down, you might find a better job or get promoted at your current one, you could develop your business, redecorate your house or even move to a bigger one – and so on and so forth. Be prepared to take full advantage of this favorable period, because Jupiter won't come to Capricorn again sooner than in 12 years!

All year round in 2008, Saturn will be in Virgo, i.e. in Capricorn's Ninth House. Saturn is the planet that brings order and stability, and the affected area (your Ninth House) is that of higher education, of travel and relationships with other countries, of wisdom, of philosophy and religion, of laws. Therefore, Saturn in your Ninth House will bring you wisdom before anything, but also trips abroad and even the chance to move to another country.

Uranus continues its transit through Pisces, i.e. in Capricorn's Third House, during the whole year in 2008. Consequently, there could be surprising events and sudden changes in the relationships with close relatives, neighbours, or the community you live in.

Neptune is still in Aquarius, i.e. in Capricorn's Second House, which it entered in 1998. The planet of inspiration and illusions still makes you have a false idea about your material status and values in general. On the other hand, you manage to make money precisely by exploiting some passions.

Pluto joins Jupiter in Capricorn at the end of January 2008. From June to November, it will come back to Sagittarius for a short while, i.e. to Capricorn's Twelfth House, where it stayed for many years and brought out many things that had been hidden before. But in November Pluto will return to Capricorn for good and it will stay there until 2024, leading to important and irreversible changes in your life.

Capricorn man
If you meet the Capricorn man when still in his twenties, you actually meet a self-conscious Capricorn that is still building up and acquiring experience, sometimes through painful endeavour. If you meet him later, you will deal with a real Capricorn.

To the Capricorn man, who is a pragmatic, ambition and career come first. Because he is hard working, enduring and tenacious, he will surely climb up the ladder and he will have his merits recognized even if it lasts for a lifetime.

The Capricorn man sets high value on duty, power, respect and loyalty. If you look beyond his armour, you will notice that he is a romantic. However, he will never allow his romanticism influence his decisions. Because of his emotional complexity and self-consciousness, as well as because safety means a lot to him, eventually the Capricorn man will want a steady relationship and he will settle down.

The Capricorn man definitely has fatherly qualities. He will support and protect his darling and he will be a real source of wisdom and help for her. It is important that she really wants to be protected and that she is not a very independent woman because otherwise she will feel she has a guard confining her freedom.

Actually, the Capricorn man does not like independent women too much; he is more of a traditionalist who thinks that men should rule the world and women should be mothers and wives first.

The Capricorn man is generally faithful because he does not understand why one would want other women since he has already chosen the right one.

The Capricorn man is a long-term lover, careful and resisting.

Capricorn woman
The Capricorn woman is not just an ordinary woman. Often too serious and mature, she is just waiting for a "warmer" atmosphere meant to allow her to be herself. She won’t be caught gossiping or talking about trifle things, but if she happens to become the centre of attention, you must be prepared for a good laugh.

The Capricorn woman possesses unimaginable resources, many of which are tempered by the fame of this astrological sign as an "old" one. She rather thinks that she doesn’t need to cast pearls before swine.

At first sight, you might be shocked by the Capricorn woman’s lack of charms due to her not paying attention to her way of dressing or to make-up. However, a man claming to be a woman expert, will know how to unleash this hidden femininity and let it manifest naturally and spontaneously. It will reveal in pale hues and elegant lines, which combine old cuts with the latest underwear, all in a conscious neglect of shapes and fragrances.

At first glance, the Capricorn woman doesn’t strike anybody, but her separating from the others, her being silent and her convenient and significant interventions, with a good sense of humour, will make her presence noticed. The Capricorn woman knows how to blend the Pisces woman’s ineffective romanticism with the Scorpio woman’s deliberate assault. So don’t be surprised if you suddenly turn into the main character of a great love affair, which implies both the required discretion and the erotic weapons that you didn’t even guess she had.

The Capricorn woman’s presence in your life could count as a book about lost civilizations or as the entire cinema programme for the last three months. She has a special relation with time, which will lead you to believe that she came either too late or too early into your life.
