(August 23rd to September 22nd)
2016: You were supposed to cut loose ends. This was the year that you had to come face to face with what wasn’t working in your life – lest it is forcefully removed from you first.
2017: You were supposed to pursue a new dream. This was the year that you embarked on a new, long-awaited adventure, whether it was a new relationship, the next level of your career, or perhaps even travel.
This was the year in which you were supposed to take risks and see firsthand what works and what doesn’t for your life.
2018: You are supposed to make some firm decisions. After the past two years of an intense tug of war between what you think should be working and what you know isn’t, this is the year to ride or die.
You will either start to soar and thrive like you never have before or come to terms with having tried something new, even if it wasn’t supposed to be forever.
(September 23rd to October 22nd)
2016: You were supposed to learn how to plant seeds. The past few years have been nothing short of radical for you, and it all began with your emerald Jupiter year in 2016 lighting the way for you to start making connections – perhaps with partners, employers or even with your inner self – that would come to fruition over the next few years.
2017: You were supposed to realize how you were holding yourself back. This year was all about letting those seeds start to sprout, and identifying the ways in which you were stomping on your garden before you gave it a chance to grow.
2018: You are supposed to learn how to let your garden feed you. This year is about finishing up what began in 2016 and allowing yourself to thrive in it.
It is about making serious relationship commitments, becoming more financially stable than ever, and adjusting to your highest vision of yourself – because deep down, that’s who you’ve been all along.
(October 23rd to November 22nd)
2016: You were supposed to learn how to see for yourself. Despite being particularly self-assured and confident – even standoffish at times – you’re almost overwhelmingly swayed by what you think other people think.
This was the year to start believing in your power more than your doubt; to start honoring what you feel, not what others believe.
2017: You were supposed to embrace the feelings you’d been shoving away for so long. This year was all about confronting the emotions that you had been trying to avoid.
Of course, it is all with a purpose: next year is going to be about your renewal, and so to know what you want, you usually must first identify what you don’t.
2018: You’re supposed to start new. With Jupiter touring your sun sign for most of the year, it is your time to build the life of your dreams. The relationships, jobs, challenges, and choices you make now will leave you with (positive) repercussions for many, many years to come.
(November 23rd to December 21st)
2016: You were supposed to learn what it means to reconcile. This was the year that you had to look face first at what you think you’ve failed at, the relationships that had deteriorated over the years, and the ways in which you need to improve your wellbeing.
This year likely brought you to many distant lands and into the arms of people you’d never expected. This was a year of mind, body and spirit exploration. You were supposed to come out on the other end with a greater sense of clarity.
2017: You were supposed to learn how to reconnect. Whether it was a sick parent who you needed to stay at the bedside of, or a cousin who you’d regrettably lost contact with over the years, or even a friend who you’d always think about but never make plans with, this was a year that you opened your heart back up, and let the right people in… however slowly you had to do it.
2018: You are supposed to make a significant change in your life this year.
Whether this means finally moving, changing careers like you’ve known you had to for so long, or just re-adjusting your daily routine to be more sustainable, this is the year in which any unstable bridges will collapse. This is for the best – you’d been hanging on by a thread for far too long. Besides, greener pastures await.
(December 22nd to January 20th)
2016: You were supposed to learn how to have vision. Despite being strong-minded, Caps are known for being malleable, if not gullible. They easily adapt other people’s ideas as their own, and this was the year to break out of that.
It was time for you to learn how to think and feel autonomously, and the chances that succeeded those revelations seemed nothing short of miraculous.
2017: You were supposed to get clarity on what’s not working. This was the year that didn’t hold back: you saw what doors were closed, you saw people’s true colors and intentions, you saw which business ventures were becoming fruitful and which weren’t.
You couldn’t fool yourself if you tried to this year, the only question was how long it would take for you to finally choose to pivot.
2018: You are supposed to start a journey into the unknown. This is a year in which you will do things you’ve never done before, perhaps live in or visit places you’ve never been, try work you’ve never done.
This is the year that you will surprise yourself with your capability, and you will see all your past regrets dissolve now that you are truly living for your own best interest, not your preoccupation with someone else.
(January 21st to February 18th)
2016: You were supposed to learn patience. Some years are revolutionary, some are stationary, some just… are. This year was the latter for you, as things seemed to move slowly, if at all. Little did you know then, the gears were turning, it was all just happening beneath the hood (so to say).
2017: You were supposed to learn how to trust. This is a year that bridged the status of your life between 2016 and 2018, and it was built entirely on trusting people.
Letting others into your sacred vision for business, love or life is not easy, but it is crucial. This year, you started to open up to the potential you hadn’t recognized before, whether that was dating someone outside of your norm or letting other people take on more responsibility at your job. Either way, it worked out for the best.

2018: You are supposed to learn how to coexist, and co-work, better than ever before. You’ve learned over the past few years that teamwork makes the dream work (ha, but seriously, it does).
Therefore, it’s in your best interest to be the best partner and in some cases, boss, that you can be. This means honing in on your empathy, your compassion, and at times, your selflessness, all while holding true to a greater vision. It’s a challenge, but the rewards will be invaluable.
(February 19th to March 20th)
2016: You were supposed to look into your past, and feel into your depths. This was a year in which some of your darkest traumas peeked their way out of the closet and said hi again.
Of course, this was not so you’d needlessly suffer, but so that you’d see them for what they are – harmless ghosts in the closet – and resolve that you can move on.
2017: You were supposed to find passion again. Over the past few years, if you’ve been less than thrilled with life it’s because you’ve felt your passions were suppressed by the weight of responsibility and loss.
This is the year you rediscovered what you really love, or noticed that maybe you made a wrong choice with a move, a job, or a personal life decision. Either way, it’s not too late to turn around, or in some cases, keep running toward the horizon.
2018: You are supposed to change your life – for good. With all of the evidence you’ve gathered over the past few years, now is the time to take action. You know where you want to go, the challenge is only whether or not you will be fearless enough to let yourself do it.
