A few days ago, Jupiter left its home sign of Sagittarius and entered the cardinal earth sign of Capricorn, where it will remain until December 19th, 2020. This changed Jupiter’s expression from one of adventuring for truth to accepting responsibility and discipline. The transfer into a much denser and more sobering expression of Jupiter from a more spirited and free expression is already easy to feel.
Jupiter, the planet of expansion, blessings, knowledge, and growth will merge with the energies of Capricorn.- the sign of structure, management, bossing up, karma and responsibility- calling on us to take its lessons seriously. We may have to experience setbacks, delays, or blows to our reputations or a myriad of other restrictive occurrences that are ultimately beneficial to our growth.
This transit very much has the flavor of our lessons being our blessings. And over the next year, what can we expect to learn? A look at your birth and progressed charts will give you a specific understanding of this, but there are some things we can look at on a collective scale, particularly for the day Jupiter went into Capricorn.
On December 2nd, 2019 at 2:07 pm Eastern Time, Jupiter entered Capricorn while squaring Chiron, trining Uranus, and conjuncting Ceres, Venus and the South Node. The square to Chiron indicates this transit activating our inner warrior alchemist and perhaps doing so in a less than comfortable way. We’re not all necessarily going to like this activation given its call for us to boss up and take responsibility for our healing process, but those who have already begun their commitment to their healing will be given the task of figuring out how to responsibly take an active role in the process.
The wounds we need to overcome are often due to a lack of structure, boundaries, accountability and integrity on our parts. Given that Aries and Capricorn energy both have a soldiering essence about them as well as the will and desire to get things going, the square between Chiron and Jupiter can overwhelmingly compel us to action. Our wounds may feel more pronounced, deeper situated, and more incensed than usual because Jupiter is putting us on notice that we’ve got to tend to them or face proverbial infection, amputation, and even death- all consequences of avoiding the responsibility of healing.
Aiding in the sense of urgency to responsibly address our wounds, Jupiter is trine Uranus in the value-oriented sign of Taurus. The electric shock of Uranus pushing us out of our comfort zones due to the fixed and stubborn nature of Taurus will have us needing to be innovative in our approach to healing. This electric shock of sorts indicates a “ready or not” sense of urgency reminding us that we can’t escape Jupiter’s lessons and will be impacted by them in ways that force our growth.
Jupiter’s wide conjunction to Ceres, Venus, and the South Node invites us to examine how we’ve sacrificed our true value by continuing outdated patterns. We’re being shown how we’re relying too much on the past; be it old habits, antiquated ways of thinking, or karmic connections. Jupiter is expanding our need to be accountable for both our clinging to old toxic behavior and us using the wisdom we’ve garnered through that experience to recognize what, if anything, has been beneficial to us. Capricorn energy wants to manage things appropriately and Jupiter wants to bless us with opportunities to do so.
Jupiter joining Pluto, which has been in Capricorn since 2008, and Saturn which has been in the sign of the goat since 2017, is also very significant. Pluto in Capricorn set us on a path of destroying and rebuilding structures and boundaries that were outdated and owning up to being the boss of our personal transformation. Saturn returning home to Capricorn reminded us that working in integrity, doing our due diligence and committing to the hard work of a job well done will ultimately reward and strengthen us and our ability to make things manifest. Jupiter is punctuating those themes and asking that we have greater faith in our abilities to be patient, prudent, dependable, disciplined, competent, and focused upon the real work we need to do.
So where are you in need of a super boost of “boss up and take responsibility energy”? Taking a look at where Jupiter will touch your chart for the year it’s in Capricorn will give you insight, but here are some general interpretations for Jupiter in Capricorn transiting through each house:
Jupiter transits to the house of self in general can literally result in gaining weight. In Capricorn, Jupiter will help you reap the consequences of previous bad behavior that has worked against your sense of self and/or physical self. This could result in a new sense of discipline regarding how you carry and present yourself. You also could be rewarded for having taken positive action in recognizing some unconscious reckless behavior while Jupiter was in your 12th house when it was in Sagittarius. Jupiter is poised to set you up for public embarrassment if you act irresponsibly with this transit. Have integrity about who you are and how you present yourself to the world.
Jupiter transits to the second house in general can typically result in blessings in wealth, money, possessions and self-worth. In Capricorn, Jupiter will want to bless you with a more responsible approach to what you value. Lessons on money management and your ability to earn more effectively are likely. Jupiter doesn’t just want you to earn more money, it wants you to be more responsible with earning and handling your money. This transit will not hesitate to help you fall flat on your face in regards to possessions and having things if you don’t act responsibly and with integrity. If you’re being reckless with your finances you will be made heavily aware of that during this transit.
Jupiter transits to the third house in general tend to grant blessings in short-term travel, communicating and receiving new ideas, interactions with neighbors and/or siblings, and writing. Jupiter in Capricorn will encourage you to use new ideas and ways to communicate to more firmly establish yourself as a person of authority with what you know and say. Lessons may surround doing your due diligence with research before espousing anything, or in other words, working hard on what you know so that you can speak on it with confidence. Jupiter will help you put your foot right in your mouth if you don’t know what you’re talking about. Writers especially should use this time to put work into their craft.
Jupiter transiting the fourth house generally brings blessings as it pertains to our comfort, family, homes, security, immediate possessions and creature comforts. In Capricorn, the sense of security will be heightened. Jupiter here wants to conserve what it has while simultaneously wanting more of what gives it a sense of stability. Jupiter also wants to appreciate the value of home and safety. You could feel compelled to to make improvements to your home or look to invest in buying one. You also may feel compelled to examine your emotional connections to others, namely women, and whether or not they feel safe. Unchecked boundaries in the home and in close connections are going to come up for a harsh examination whether you like it or not.
Jupiter transits to the fifth house generally are known for blessings of excitement, fun, romance and peaks in creative energy expression. In Capricorn, an air of seriousness descends upon this Leo-ruled house which may perhaps help you turn a hobby into a business or a fling into a more serious partnership. When you can build something of substance from a place of passion and creativity, you’re setting yourself up to truly love the process and work it takes to get there. Caution against committing yourself to any creative endeavors or situations that you’re not trying to plant yourself in for more than just a whim. Be honest with people you date if you’re just trying to have fun and don’t want anything serious. Jupiter will not hesitate to slap you where it hurts with the consequences of appearing more involved and committed than you are.
Transits by Jupiter to the sixth house tend to bring blessings of improvement to our day-to-day routines and health as well as an increased initiative to be of help and serve others. How much could you benefit from a tightening up of structures in your routine and health regiment? This transit has the potential to both bless you with the appropriate information and circumstances to perfect healthier habits and more effective time-management skills. The small details will become more important as you take the reigns of control in you daily life. Just be careful not to become too pompous and critical of others not on the same mission to improve their health and well-being. Being overbearing will backfire.
Jupiter moving through the Libra-ruled house of one-to-one partnerships and relationships brings blessings through relationships and greater opportunities to learn about oneself through those connections. The seventh house isn’t just about romantic partnerships, but partnerships of all kinds and this transit also applies to friendships and business partnerships. Legal matters also come to the fore. The Capricorn essence with Jupiter will encourage better management of partnerships and relationships and inspire us to take more responsibility in them. This energy could certainly bring an end to connections where control issues and/or lack of respect and integrity were present. Guard against trying to forcefully dominate your relationships by trying to control your partners.
Jupiter transiting the house of Pluto and Scorpio tends to bring a highlight of one’s issues with power, personal transformation, psychological health, sexuality and joint finances. Capricorn’s influence here will add a strictness and seriousness that allows you to better handle that which may have previously been difficult to face or manage. Jupiter’s expansion of Scorpionic themes can be intense and bring to the surface all sorts of psychological wounds that have been left unchecked. This energy can compel you to dig into the heart of matters that are in need of restructuring and healing which can lead to a feeling that scabs and scars are being reopened. This is all for your greater good so allow what comes up to come up without trying to force it back down. Be brave and unafraid to face darker aspects of yourself.
Jupiter transits to the ninth house typically bring new opportunities to travel, learn or teach, experience different cultures, and expand horizons. Religious and spiritual exploration and growth are also very likely. The essence of Capricorn here lends a seriousness to any adventures we undertake. Jupiter here wants us to embrace our abilities to use the information we learn and are exposed to to give ourselves a better foundation for our endeavors. We may be exposed to people who will be beneficial to our learning and help us explore new concepts suitable for cultivating a better quality of life. Be careful not to get so carried away with taking on new things and exploring that you wind up stretching yourself too thin .
Jupiter transiting the 10th house can generally bring a boost to status and career. In this position Jupiter wants to bless you with expanding your visibility to the world. In Capricorn, this transit is super status oriented and is concerned with prestige and clout, but not of the fleeting or superficial sort. This Jupiter transit wants you to put in the work! To reap the appropriate rewards, you’ve got to be focused, dedicated, persistent and live from a space of integrity. The tenth house is the highest place in the chart and therefore the most visible. It is also the house that Capricorn naturally rules. This concentration of Cap energy is not one to play with as it is Saturn ruled. Be careful not to be too haughty or too full of yourself as Jupiter here can eat you alive and humble you quick with a blow to your reputation.
Jupiter making a transit through the 11th house of social circles, friends, groups, clubs, and activities generally brings out your inner networker and increases opportunities for your connections to bring help your way. You may also see an uptick in your circle of friends. This house is also associated with the internet and social media networking. In Capricorn, this transit may be highly beneficial for gaining friends in high places that can positively impact your career or social standing. You may also have a significant impact on groups or clubs you’re associated with. Use caution during this transit not to seek out connections just for the sake of using them for what they can offer you. Organically formed relationships will be much more beneficial.
Transits to the Piscean-ruled 12th house of what’s hidden and unseen typically bring forth blessings of better connectivity to your subconscious emotions, intuition, dreams, and self-destructive habits. During this transit an inclination to be more conscious of others may be present. In Capricorn, there’s a coolness to the transit of this house but also a feeling of compulsion to do things well in the realm of working behind the scenes to help others as well as ourselves. Your dreams may be very vivid so pay attention to them. During this time there may be a compulsion to keep things more of a secret. Be careful not to hide things from others that would create a sense of mistrust and suspicion. The potential for people to be harshly respond to any secrecy on your part will be strong.
The lessons are the blessings in this transit. Make sure to embrace them fully.
