Jupiter in Capricorn
Known to astrologers as the "Great Benefic," Jupiter is the planet of luck and abundance. It is boundless and expansive. Naturally at home in the signs of Sagittarius and Pisces, Jupiter is also the planet of wisdom, travel and higher education. It is associated with philosophy, religion, spirituality, and values such as freedom, liberation & truth. The sign and house placement of Jupiter in a natal chart will not only tell you about a person's destiny and where they will find luck, but it will also tell you a little bit about their personal philosophy, their outlook on right & wrong, and how they acquire knowledge.
Traditionally, Jupiter is uncomfortable in the sign of Capricorn, considered to be the sign of its fall. Capricorn is the sign of the goat, a cardinal, earth sign ruled by Saturn, known to astrologers as the "Great Malefic," virtually the opposite of what Jupiter represents. Where Jupiter brings faith, Saturn brings doubt. Where Jupiter brings opportunity, Saturn brings blockages. Where Jupiter brings abundance, Saturn brings scarcity. Where Jupiter brings joy, Saturn brings depression. Where Jupiter brings freedom, Saturn brings restriction.
For some of us, Jupiter in Capricorn might limit our perspective, especially if it makes unfavorable aspects to planets in our natal chart. Jupiter in Sagittarius helped many of us make our dreams a reality, but Jupiter in Capricorn might make us wonder if it really was just all a dream after all. We may begin to doubt whether the opportunities brought on by Jupiter in Sagittarius are really possible. While Jupiter in Sagittarius brought us to unspeakable heights, Jupiter in Capricorn brings us back down to earth. It isn't all bad, however. So long as we don't lose the optimism of Jupiter in Sagittarius, we can use Jupiter in Capricorn's realism to help us achieve the dreams Jupiter's transit through Sagittarius merely gave us a taste of. While Jupiter in Sagittarius opened up our eyes to what could be, Jupiter in Capricorn will help motivate us to take the practical, sometimes painful, steps necessary to get there.
Really, Jupiter brings good luck, no matter where it is located. In the sign of Capricorn, Jupiter brings good luck to areas of career and finance. If making good aspects to our charts, it will bring us an abundance of wealth and money. It can also bring an increase in social status and reputation. It can even bring fame!
People born with Jupiter in Capricorn in their natal charts are often very ambitious, career-orientated individuals, through the rest of their charts, especially the Midheaven, tell us more about what type of ambitions they aspire too. When Jupiter is transiting through Capricorn, we may all be very ambitious. All of us have dreams but not all of us are willing to work for them. Or should I say, not all of us know how to work for them. We may have so many great ideas that we don't even know where to start! Jupiter in Capricorn brings with it an increase in our organizational skills, our time management and our executive functioning. It helps us achieve our dreams, by increasing our work ethic, and giving us a greater dose of reality, and by slowing us down, helping us take all the necessary steps to achieve our ambitions.
Jupiter's transit through Capricorn might make us hyper-aware of what people think of us, how we appear to the public. It might also bring us a greater awareness of our own mortality: what kind of legacy do we want to be leaving? What is our live's mission? What did we come here to do, and how do we achieve it? What do we need to complete here on Earth in order to make our presence here a meaningful one? What kind of mark do we want to leave on the world?
Those with personal planets or angles in Capricorn, Taurus or Virgo will most strongly benefit from this transit while those with personal planets or angles in Aries, Cancer or Libra are more likely to struggle.
Jupiter in Capricorn will make a ton of aspects throughout the year. I will list them all, month-by-month, along with a short description. They may or may not affect you personally, depending on whether or not and how they aspect the planets and angles in your natal chart.
In December, Jupiter will trine Uranus in Taurus midway through the month, on December 15th, bringing us unexpected opportunities, especially in regards to career and finance. Meanwhile, on December 27th, just two days after Christmas, Jupiter will conjunct the Sun at 5 degrees Capricorn. This is considered to be the luckiest day of the year, bringing us a healthy sense of joy, good fortune and gratitude.
The first month of 2020 starts out with a conjunction between Jupiter and Mercury at 7 degrees on January 2nd. Communication is favored, and so is manifestation, as we become more aware of the power of positive thinking. Later in the month, on the 23rd, Jupiter will sextile Venus in Pisces, bringing us a healthy and happy sense of love and romance. Venus is exalted in Pisces so this is an especially good night to schedule a date.
On February 20th, Jupiter will sextile Neptune at 17 degrees Pisces, heightening our sense of spirituality and purpose. Just three days later, Jupiter will square Venus at 18 degrees Aries, sign of its detriment. Be careful not to rush into a relationship too soon, expect too much from your loved ones, or make any hasty decisions that threaten existing relationships.
March 2020 will begin on a happy note, with Jupiter making a sextile to the Sun at 21 degrees Pisces on March 11th. On March 27th, Jupiter will trine Venus in Taurus at 23 degrees. Venus is at home in Taurus, making it an especially good day for love, romance, a good date night and also anything related to beauty, fashion, or art.
On April 4th, Jupiter will conjunct Pluto in at 24 degrees Capricorn. This is probably the most important aspect Jupiter will make during its transit through Capricorn. Expect an article on it to come. On the 27th, Jupiter will sextile Mercury at 25 degrees Pisces, benefiting communication and thought.
On May 10th, Mercury in Taurus will trine Jupiter at 27 degrees Capricorn, benefiting communication and thought, followed by a trine from the Sun in Taurus only a week later. On May 14th, Jupiter will station Retrograde at 27 degrees. Expect an article on that to come, detailing how Jupiter's transit Retrograde will affect each of the 12 signs.
On June 20th, Jupiter will sextile Mars in Pisces, benefiting action of all kinds (sports, sex, etc.) and potentially pacifying war and conflict. On the 29th, Jupiter will conjunct Pluto once again - this time at 24 degrees.
On July 14th, Jupiter will oppose the Sun in Cancer at 22 degrees. This could either bring mania, with many of us being too optimistic and over-doing things, or depression, as many of us are out of touch with the faith and blessings symbolized by Jupiter. Later that month, on the 27th, Jupiter will sextile Neptune once again, and on the 30th, opposing Mercury at 20 degrees Cancer. This could bring miscommunication and errors in thought, particularly in regards to being too emotional, and making assumptions about the emotions of others that may or may not be true.
On August 4th, Jupiter will square Mars at 19 degrees Aries. Since Mars rules the sign of Aries, this could bring an increase in war, conflict and impulsive behavior. On August 25th, Jupiter will oppose Venus at 17 degrees Cancer: avoid falling in love too fast and viewing people with rose-colored glasses. On August 29th, Jupiter will trine Mercury at 17 degrees Virgo. Mercury rules Virgo, giving us an increase in logic, lucidity, ideas, intellect and clear-headedness, as well as benefiting all communication.
September 9th will be a lucky and positive day, with Jupiter in Retrograde making a trine to the Sun at 17 degrees Virgo. On September 17th, Jupiter will finally go direct at 17 degrees. More on that will be discussed in my Jupiter Retrograde article to come.
On October 19th Jupiter will trine Venus at 19 degrees Virgo, making it a good day for romance.
Jupiter will conjunct Pluto once more at 22 degrees on November 12th. On November 14th, it will sextile the Sun at 23 degrees Scorpio, bringing us a dose of good luck and a boost of self-esteem. Just one day later, however, it will square Venus in Libra, the sign that it rules, potentially creating disharmony in relationships, possibly as a result of indecision or over-idealization... flirting too much, perhaps, too much of a good thing, and hurting the one you really love and care for as a result? Jupiter will sextile Mercury at 25 degrees Scorpio on the 28th, benefiting our minds and our communication with others.
In December, Jupiter will leave Capricorn and enter the sign of Aquarius, where it will make a Great Conjunction to Saturn on the 2020 Winter Solstice. This is major: expect an article on that to come.

As a Gemini, your energy is often scattered - sooo many ideas but no real focus. Use this newfound awareness to hone in on the things you really care about and work on them!
The 8th house not only rules death, however, but also other people's resources. You may receive an inheritance, or you could be loaned or gifted a wide some of money.

While Jupiter's transit through Capricorn will mostly be very positive for you, Cancer, in July & early August, Jupiter will oppose multiple planets in your sign.

March & June are especially good months to take a break from all the stresses in life and travel somewhere, perhaps a romantic getaway, as Jupiter will be making positive aspects to planets in your 9th house.

While this transit is mostly positive, in November, it will square Venus in your sign; be sure to consider other people's feelings (especially your family and the people you care about) as well as your own and everything should be okay. The same could be said of August, when it will square Mars in your 7th house: be sure to compromise, and not be my-way-or-the-highway, but also be assure to assertive yourself when you need to.

If you feel you're too quiet or suffer from some sort of social anxiety (or a related disorder) you can expect Jupiter's transit through Capricorn to help you overcome that. You might also decide to start a journal, or if you're a writer, a new novel or book or something. If you're still in school or involved in some sort of research project, Jupiter's transit through Capricorn can help you with that as well.
November will be an especially lucky month for you, Scorpio. Your confidence is showing, and you're able to put yourself out there and speak your mind with ease. Aspects to planets in your 11th house, in late January, mid March and early June will help you to make good friends, while aspects to planets in your 7th house during the months of March and May are especially good for more intimate connections, and deepening the friendships you already have.

A family vacation or other outing may be a good thing to spend it on, or lend it to a loved one in need.

With Jupiter transiting your 12th house, it is about time for you to focus on you and your own self-care. Because what good are we really bringing into the world if we haven't even healed the demons within?
