Jupiter Enters Capricorn: Big Dreams Need A Plan

Jupiter In Capricorn: December 2, 2019 – December 19, 2020

Jupiter is the biggest planet in astronomy and the best planet in astrology. It represents opportunity, growth, expansion & freedom and is the planet of hope, trust & faith. Wherever you find Jupiter in your horoscope, this is where you can embrace life to the full.

This week, Jupiter is on the move. The big planet takes 12 years to circuit the zodiac which means it spends approximately 1 year in each star sign.

Jupiter Leaves Sagittarius

For the last twelve months, Jupiter has been in ‘big picture’ Sagittarius, its sign of rulership. This is a crusading Jupiter, aligned with vision and truth, justice and faith.  Jupiter in Sagittarius is full of high ideals, sound beliefs and a world philosophy.

Yet, as some of you may have experienced, Jupiter’s promise in Sagittarius didn’t always live up to expectations. This was partly because Jupiter was constantly squaring up to Neptune, the planet of disillusion & confusion. You can feel lost in Neptune’s realm and this may have dissolved the enthusiasm and vigour of Jupiter’s big goals in Sagittarius.

You may have encountered some unfulfilled dreams or hopes that faded before they came into being. Fire signs, like Sagittarius, are great for energy and motivation. Yet, without a solid plan, they don’t always see things through to the end.

Jupiter Enters Capricorn

So, what can you expect when Jupiter is in Capricorn, its sign of fall. How does the planet of optimism and joy get on in the sign of work and discipline, especially if Capricorn insists on viewing the glass half empty?

You could just give up and think that Jupiter in Capricorn won’t bring the goods in the year ahead. However, before you do so, know that this could be a great partnership.

Jupiter in Capricorn is the practical visionary, the realistic optimist.  In fact, it can be a partnership made in heaven, when those big dreams finally come to fruition because you’ve made a plan and have the discipline to see things through. Capricorn is an earth sign, great for seeing things through to completion.

Also, Jupiter is coming along behind Saturn and Pluto, already in Capricorn. It’s bringing truth and justice to their dictatorial & underground ways, including corruption and wrong-doing.

On a personal level, this could bring you freedom from a stale-mate situation and put the wind in your sails allowing you to break free and break through after a time of difficulty or challenge.

I think the biggest challenge with Jupiter’s move into Capricorn is going to be keeping faith. Jupiter represents hope & optimism, whereas Capricorn can feel gloomy when possibilities are limited.

Therefore, there may be times in the year ahead when you lose your trust in life. Bear this in mind moving forwards and use any tips and tricks that work for you to hold on to your faith.

Jupiter’s Influence

There’ll be lots to say about Jupiter over the next twelve months as it interacts with other key planets, on the whole, in a positive way.

Dates to note in December are the 15th when Jupiter and Uranus align, both in earth signs – think entrepreneurial risk-taking – and the 27th when there’s an annual Sun/Jupiter conjunction in Capricorn, the day after a Solar Eclipse in Capricorn on the 26th – turbo-powered energy.

This blog will keep you up-to-date with all the top astrology as it arises. For now, here’s a quick guide to the areas of life that Jupiter will highlight in your horoscope in the coming year. Read both your Sun sign and your Ascendant sign.

Remember, it’s important not to sit back and wait for Jupiter’s gifts to come to you. When you know which area of your life Jupiter is highlighting, take advantage of the best planet.

Jupiter encourages risk-taking, envisioning, enthusiasm and positive vibes. The more you put in, the more you get back in return.

Jupiter in Capricorn means Big Dreams Need A Plan.

Pisces December 2019

Moving On

On the 2nd, your ruling planet, Jupiter, leaves Sagittarius, the star sign at the peak of your horoscope, linked to your career and vocation, your status and reputation.

Jupiter takes approximately one year to move through each sign of the zodiac and has been in Sagittarius since November 2018. At its best, Jupiter brings new opportunities, success and a wealth of work.

You may have found a way to break free from the daily grind and follow your true vocation over the past year. For some of you, this may have brought a sabbatical from work to study or a chance to work abroad as Jupiter is the planet of liberation and freedom.

Jupiter is at its best when you play big in life and grab new opportunities. It’s a good time for sowing seeds and there may be one more chance to benefit from Jupiter’s transit through your career and vocation sector.

This is because the Sun remains in Sagittarius until the 22nd, the day of the Solstice. Plus, talk planet, Mercury is in Sagittarius and this sector of your horoscope from the 9th to the 29th.

Keep on keeping on, raise your profile and ensure other people know who you are and what you have to offer. If you have a particular business or entrepreneurial goal, make the most of this last month of the year when Sagittarius’ energy remains strong.

The Full Moon on the 12th could be a pivotal date in this respect as it cuts across the Sagittarius/Gemini axis of the zodiac and the foundations of your horoscope. You often see your situation clearly during the Full Moon. Trust your intuition in knowing what steps to take so you harness this strong forward-moving energy.

Jupiter Goals – Friends & Networks

Jupiter’s move into Capricorn on the 2nd highlights friends, groups, social concerns and your wider network. Jupiter remains in this sector of your horoscope until December 2020.

This is about finding people of like minds and making sure that your social life is not only fun but supportive too. Bring new friends into your life by enjoying new activities and make an effort to catch up with old friends. Jupiter will create the opportunities, perhaps through a friend’s wedding, anniversary or school reunion. All you need to do is say Yes.

If you have built up a successful business while Jupiter’s been in Sagittarius or you’ve been following your vocation, here’s your chance to take what you do out into the wider world and get people on board who can help you.

Jupiter in Capricorn is ideal for gathering people around you, a team of people of like minds who can work alongside you and make life not only easier but enjoyable and fun too. There’s power in connections now and this planetary move confirms it for you. Dig deep to learn more about your close friends and create ties that can’t be broken.

Whether you’re transforming other people’s lives or your own life is being shaped and developed through your connections with others, go all in. Jupiter’s move into Capricorn is a symbol of forgiveness, especially if some of your close interactions have struggled while Saturn and Pluto have been marching through your friendship sector.

And, don’t forget that your planet rules freedom. Therefore, it offers you the opportunity to move on from a group situation that’s grown stale or where you feel trapped. Spread your wings, go global and seek a wider family of people who can help open up your life.

Key dates are the 15th when there’s a Jupiter-Uranus trine aspect and the 27th when there’s a Sun/Jupiter conjunction in Capricorn. Both planetary events feel lucky and celebratory.

If you’ve been taking on too much on your own, December’s stars are urging you to reach out and reconnect. Say Yes to any invitations that come your way for these two exciting dates in the calendar.

Capricorn Solar Eclipse

There is, however, a New Moon or Solar Eclipse in Cancer on the 26th, the day before the Sun/Jupiter conjunction. This is part of an eclipse cycle that began in July 2018 and completes in July 2020. It cuts across the Cancer/Capricorn axis of the zodiac and social sectors of your horoscope.

Eclipses often coincide with the unexpected and they tend to bring what’s hidden to light. They’re neither good nor bad but they do shift the dynamics and change things around.

As your planet, Jupiter, is caught up with this key eclipse, hopefully it spells good news for you. Focus on your hopes and wishes and keep your eyes firmly focused on your future goals. Dream big and back this up with a solid plan.

Big Dreams

Also, in December, action planet, Mars, is moving through your fellow water sign, Scorpio. This puts the spotlight on travel, education and any activity that expands your experience of life, philosophy and spirituality included.

If you’re involved in the media, publishing or Law, now’s the time to get ahead and create a buzz about what you’re doing. For some of you, this signals a last-minute holiday or a chance to travel or be in contact with friends who live abroad.

Mars teams up with your co-ruler, Neptune, on the 13th and there’s a Venus-Neptune vibe on the 8th. This feels special. Take yourself out of your normal environment and enter a place where you can allow your dreams to expand and flow. Being close to water or the sea is one possibility.

When you find your special place or you connect with the meaning of life, then you feel at home. Explore whatever calls you during this period, whether it’s a spiritual or artistic path. Find your muse and go with the flow. There’s a lot to be thankful and grateful for in the month ahead.

Aquarius December 2019

Social Vibes

This month, the emphasis is on the star sign, Sagittarius, up until the 22nd, the day of the Solstice. The Sun is here until then and sociable Mercury is in Sagittarius from the 9th to the 29th.

This sector of your horoscope rules your friends and group activities and this is likely to be a social time of year for you. You are one of the air signs. If you’re a typical Aquarius, you will have many people you want to catch up with over the next few weeks and in to the holiday season.

The big news this month, however, is the fact that expansive Jupiter is on the move leaving fire sign, Sagittarius, on the 2nd and entering earth sign Capricorn. Jupiter takes approximately one year to journey through each sign of the zodiac and has been in Sagittarius since November 2018.

Sagittarius not only rules friends and groups in your horoscope, also social concerns, politics, humanitarian and environmental networks. At its best, Jupiter brings luck and opportunity your way. Your friends may have been fortunate for you. Perhaps, you’ve joined a new group or club that’s expanded your horizons or you’ve been involved with a charity or organisation.

As Jupiter leaves this part of your horoscope, consider where you’re ready to move on. Ensure you have people in your life who arouse your imagination and inspire your dreams. Move away from drama and towards creativity or a spiritual path. Finding people of like minds this month brings comfort and reassurance your way.

Jupiter Goals – Peace & Retreat

Jupiter’s move into Capricorn turns your attention towards the most hidden sector of your horoscope. Capricorn is the sign before your star sign, Aquarius, and Jupiter remains here until December 2020.

This is your opportunity to focus on your inner world, develop your spirituality or your trust and faith in life and the universe. You may see more clearly the connection between mind, body and spirit and you would benefit from going on retreat or bringing more silence and solitude into your life. Quiet times are nourishing and nurturing.

This could indicate a period when you choose to go into therapy or explore life beyond the everyday and the obvious. Push back the boundaries of your life and get to know yourself or the universe on a deeper and more expansive level.

Embrace the quieter side of life or a spiritual activity close to the 27th when there’s a Sun/Jupiter conjunction in Capricorn. This combination is perfect for caring for yourself or taking care of others.

This theme is flagged up on the 15th too, when Jupiter in Capricorn unites with your co-ruler Uranus in Taurus. Taurus is the star sign at the base of your horoscope ruling your home and family, your past and where you come from. It would be a great date to do something special with your loved ones, whether you take a trip down memory lane or embrace a new addition to your family.

Know that this is a key time of preparation when Jupiter is in Capricorn. It’s paving the way for Jupiter’s momentous move in to Aquarius on December 19, 2020. Start planning ahead and consider how you want to get ready for one of the biggest years in your life, 2021.

You might choose to study or immerse yourself in research. You may have a bigger goal plan that you’re working towards. Do whatever’s right for you personally.

Capricorn Solar Eclipse

This month, there is also a New Moon or Solar Eclipse in Capricorn on the 26th, the day before the Sun/Jupiter conjunction. Eclipses are associated with drama and change, so this is potentially complex astrology. You might find yourself in the dark and need to feel your way forwards carefully.

This eclipse is part of the Cancer/Capricorn eclipse cycle which began in July 2018 and completes in July 2020. For you, it’s about your work and routine, your lifestyle and health. Also, rest and retreat, your inner world and private concerns.

Eclipses bring change to your situation. They’re neither good nor bad but often coincide with times when external events have a knock on effect in your life. Work is one area where you’re wise to tread carefully and it’s a good idea to get on the right side of other people.

Consider what this means for you. Perhaps, there’s someone you don’t get on with at work or you find out about a secret enemy, someone working against you. This isn’t a good month to try and manipulate or control others, even if you feel hard done by.

Benevolent Goals

There is an important reason why life may not slow down as much as you would like in December. This is because action planet, Mars, is in Scorpio the star sign at the peak of your horoscope.

Mars is dynamic and strong in Scorpio and this is an ideal time to turn your attention towards your career and vocation. Scorpio rules your future sector, where you’re heading and why.

Here too, there’s a charitable or giving edge to your astrology. Your goals and ambitions may include other people. Selfish gestures are out and benevolent acts are in. You could be organising a fundraiser at work or find a way to benefit other people. Have faith in what you’re doing and trust that things will work out well for you.

Love Planet Venus

Finally, love planet, Venus, enters your star sign, Aquarius, on the 20th, just in time for the festive period. If it’s all work and service in your life up until then, prioritise love and good times over the holiday season.

Jupiter Goals – Taking Centre Stage

It’s highly like that December 2019 is going to be a month to remember. The big news is the fact that Jupiter, the planet of luck, opportunity and good fortune, is on the move. On the 2nd, Jupiter enters your star sign Capricorn where it remains until December 2020.

Jupiter takes approximately twelve years to circuit the zodiac so this significant event doesn’t happen every year. In fact, you’ve had to wait quite some time to enjoy Jupiter’s bounty in your star sign. Think back to 2008 twelve years ago, the previous time that Jupiter was in Capricorn.

This lucky planetary transit happens three weeks before the Sun enters your star sign Capricorn on the 22nd, the day of the Solstice. So what will Jupiter offer you when it’s in your sign of the zodiac?

Jupiter is the biggest planet in the universe and represents all that’s expansive in life. This is the planet of freedom, allowing you to let go of ties that bind you and anything or anyone who holds you back in life.

When Jupiter’s in full flow, you want to see the world and save the world. Jupiter rules travel, education, spirituality, philosophy and philanthropic activities. Choose your pick. What’s not advised when Jupiter is strong in your chart is to play small or stay close to home. Jupiter rewards bold behaviour and loves the free spirit, the explorer, the entrepreneur, the lover of life.

Jupiter Luck

For starters this month, notice what takes place on the 15th when there’s a stunning planetary aspect between Jupiter in Capricorn and Uranus in Taurus. This combination feels entrepreneurial, gorgeous for risk-taking and being visionary.

It aligns creative sectors of your horoscope and could bring news of a pregnancy or birth. It’s ideal for artistic activities or a project that allows you to express the real you.

Plus, on the 27th, the Sun in Capricorn sits next to Jupiter. Jupiter rules truth and justice so be true to your beliefs, live life to the full and make the most of this exciting astrology. Do something special in the month ahead, whether that means a big party and celebration or you take part in a unique event, a conference or workshop.

Capricorn Solar Eclipse

Plus, it’s always going to be an important month when you have an eclipse in your star sign. The eclipse date is the 26th when there’s a New Moon or Solar Eclipse in Capricorn. This eclipse is part of a bigger eclipse cycle that began in July 2018 and completes in July 2020.

This eclipse cycle cuts across the sector of your horoscope which represents you on the one hand, your identity, your image and profile, your personal goals and aims. The other side of the spectrum represents your 1-to-1’s, your close relationships, both personal and professional.

As eclipses bring change, it’s unlikely that your relationships are going to be the same at the start of this eclipse cycle as they will be at the end. Plus, you’re unlikely to be the same person, especially if you’re being called forth into the world. Tend to these areas of your life and look at where change is needed or where change is likely to happen.

Look closely at yourself and decide whether you’re the person you want to be in a relationship. Have you lost sight of who you are or do you play a role that no longer suits you in a significant 1-to-1?

Also, notice who comes into your life during the eclipse as they are often turning points, moments of destiny, linked to endings and new beginnings. This eclipse could be super turbo-charged and it does sit next to lucky Jupiter. If there’s an opportunity to take centre stage, seize the day.

Love, Pampering & Friendship

Venus, the planet of love, in also in your star sign Capricorn up until the 20th. This could be a truly wonderful time for love. In fact, for some Capricorn individuals there’s the possibility of a proposal or marriage.

Venus in Capricorn is perfect for a make-over or buying a new outfit that suits the new you. It’s time to treat yourself and be kind to yourself. Having said that, this is not a month to sit back and focus solely on pampering. Not when you have expansive Jupiter lighting up your star sign.

Do pace yourself, however, because the Sun is in Sagittarius and the most hidden sector of your horoscope until the 22nd, the day of the Solstice. This is often a time of preparation for you, when the focus is on your inner world.

It’s rarely a quiet time of life, especially if you find that life speeds up in the weeks before the festive period and the holiday season. Sometimes, you feel less confident when the Sun is in Sagittarius and you want to indulge the introvert side of your nature and be quiet rather than noisy. You could turn up to the festive parties but not want to be there, for example.

An ideal way of spending your time with key planets in Sagittarius is to go on retreat and actively seek quiet and solitude in your life and this is potentially a spiritual time of year.

There will be some people in your life who you’re drawn towards or want to be around more than usual. Action planet Mars is in Scorpio and your friendship sector all month.

This highlights old friends and people you’ve known for ever. Scorpio is perfect for 1-to-1 connections, catching up for an in-depth conversation. Again, it may be less about partying and socialising and more about connecting on a spiritual or meaningful level. Choose your friends wisely.

This is about education and learning too, which is also part of Jupiter’s transit in your star sign. The more you’re open to others, the more you receive in return, but do it your way. Expand your life, your community and find your tribe.
