2022: Capricorn Horoscope: Love, Career, & General Trends
Note: This is where the summary of the year resides; more details are below!
Your communications increase and expand in 2022, dear Capricorn. It’s an exciting year for enjoying your daily affairs and learning endeavors. You’re also improving your daily environment or the transportation systems in your life.
Depending on your current situation and your unique personality/circumstances, you might enjoy a greater ability (and desire) to express yourself, and your personal interests grow. Developing a mental interest or project more fully can figure strongly this year.
Much focus is on personality, career, and finances in 2022. Personal changes run deep, but you’re also finding more interesting things to get you out of bed in the morning. You are rediscovering yourself from the inside out, and ultimately learning that fear is the only thing holding you back in life–you are learning to fear less.
You’ve been through enormous personal changes in the last few years and, ideally, you have connected with what really motivates you or makes you tick. The year 2022 brings pleasing social interactions, plenty of opportunities to learn and improve your skills, and a changing attitude towards money and income.
Plenty of opportunities arise on intellectual lines and on the home front. Some of you will have your eye on a dream home, and many of you will be enjoying pleasing family connections and support.
You can go through periods of great optimism and hopefulness, which is not exactly in character for a practical, risk-averse, and realistic person like yourself. You are learning about taking more risks in your creative or romantic world. Your siblings, acquaintances, or neighbors might be the source of wonderful opportunities this year. Your summer is likely to be extremely busy and changeful, with a stronger focus on family and home life.
Key Events in 2022 for Capricorn:
Outer Planet Transits:
Pluto trine True North Node in February. This transit intensifies our passion to make a difference, a change, or connection. We can feel strongly connected to people or groups at this time.
This can be a powerful period for making meaningful connections for you, Capricorn, particularly along romantic or creative lines. You’re opening up to more self-expression, and who you meet or connect with at this time can be integral. Ties to someone can feel karmic or conducive to healing, growing, and getting closer to your heart. Your talents might benefit others.
You’re finding a greater sense of purpose through your creative pursuits, hobbies, or love life. You take great pride in developing yourself as an individual, discovering your strengths and joys, and expressing your unique qualities. Confidence-boosting activities can figure strongly.
Jupiter sextile Uranus and semi-square Pluto in February. With these aspects, changes and innovations are exciting. We’re open to new energies, approaches, and attitudes. Fortunate events occur as a direct result of our willingness to entertain the unusual and to think outside of the box. We’re less tolerant of repetition and routine, and we’re resistant to obligations or limits to our self-expression. Good luck or money can happen unexpectedly, appearing in the nick of time.
Capricorn, as you push your boundaries creatively or romantically, you find yourself expressing yourself more successfully all around. You’re finding entirely new channels for expressing yourself and your affections, and they’re satisfying. You might find voice for some of your more unusual ideas. You’re inclined to do pleasure, leisure, love, and entertainment in different ways, and this attitude can open new worlds for you.
There can also be new insights and developments in learning areas, studies, in your neighborhood or with siblings, or in activities surrounding communication. You may receive good news or you might read something that inspires you to change your learning focus, to write about a topic you hadn’t considered before, or through channels that you have never tried, for example. You can be more open to communicating about subjects or feelings that you have previously kept to yourself. Inspiration can be found now, and it’s likely to come through your conversations or communications with others.
Jupiter conjunct Neptune in April. With this fabulous alignment, idealistic and humanitarian goals or impulses surface. Themes now are making connections with others of a different background, a spirit of altruism and generosity, widening our minds through unusual or different experiences, expanded faith, and a feeling that anything is possible if we believe in it. We more easily make personal sacrifices for what we believe to be the better good.
Everyday, ordinary life doesn’t satisfy, as we hunger for a more idealistic life. This can certainly lead to disappointment or strong feelings of discontent and restlessness. We may need a reality check in order to keep our expectations realistic. However, it’s a period of greater compassion–when our guiding principle is to trust in people or the universe.
For Capricorn, your imagination blossoms, and creative writing, speaking, and other such pursuits can thrive. With the ruler of your solar third and twelfth houses aligned, you could be writing or otherwise communicating your more personal thoughts and feelings, perhaps focusing on the past or more private material.
You are considerably more intuitive with this influence in play. Chance meetings with past acquaintances (and future ones) are part of your life now. The lines of communication are opening in wonderful and perhaps unusual ways. You could feel strongly connected to siblings, classmates, and possibly neighbors.
Jupiter sextile Pluto in early May. We’re discovering our ambitions and motivations, and it’s an enjoyable, productive experience. It’s a time when we want to improve, grow, and bring something to the next level. As we connect with our hidden talents or desires, we begin to embrace new directions or pursuits.
For Capricorn, this influence brings meaningful opportunities your way, particularly to share your ideas, learn, or guide. Communications and learning can be in sharp focus, and you’re likely to excel in these areas. Your personality comes through beautifully in whatever personal interest or project you’re involved with now. This is a time for appreciation and praise from others, as well as fabulous rewards for your efforts. It’s a stellar time to write, speak, publish, or guide. It’s also a brilliant period for using the power of thoughts and words to transform your life for the better.
Uranus conjunct True North Node in July. With this transit, we attract people or lessons into our lives that encourage us to detach from traditions or conventions that are keeping us from growing. It’s a good time to make pivotal friendships or group connections. We’re learning to be more self-sufficient while concerning ourselves with bettering the world around us.
Venus is retrograde from December 19th. Venus is retrograde in the sign of Capricorn from December 19th, 2021, to January 29, 2022.
Retrograde Venus affects all of us in general, mainly in the areas of love and finances. These matters are not straightforward during this period, and it’s a time for reviewing our attitudes rather than forging ahead boldly into new love relationships or financial projects.
Venus retrograde cycles always have more impact on you when it comes to relationships and love because Venus rules your romance sector. This time around, Venus is occupying your sign during this retrograde cycle. Interestingly, when Venus occupies your sign, you tend to enjoy special attention from love interests–a lover or love interest is generally on the same page as you, or at the very least, has your best interests at heart.
You have the upper hand in love when Venus works her way through Capricorn, and this is the case for a longer period than usual this time, from November 5, 2021, to March 6, 2022. But while Venus is retrograde, there can be some cooling off in relationships. It’s a time for looking into your heart and understanding your needs more intimately. You can do quite a bit of reviewing, reassessing, and perhaps some experimenting with your personal image, looks, manner, and relationships. Take your time with major decision-making! You could be a little withdrawn and hesitant about pushing forward in matters of the heart.
The Sun aligns with Jupiter in Pisces and Venus aligns with Mars in Aquarius on March 5-7. It’s a wildly creative and optimistic time. We’re generous with our time and energy, and we can be quite reactive and affectionate, perhaps bolder than usual as we wish to do something special.
Your desire for comfort or luxury items increases now, Capricorn. You might come up with creative ideas on how to earn more or use what you already have. You’re seeking more independence with money. This might also bring in money or gifts to you, or simply stir a stronger desire to make or spend money. It can be a good period for earning some praise or admiration for your creative talents.
It’s also an opportunity period for learning, studies, communications, mobility, and transportation. This is the start of a particularly special period for personal projects and developments.
Mars is retrograde from October 30, 2022, to January 12, 2023, in the sign of Gemini (pre-retrograde shadow begins September 3). We can feel stuck on past relationships or situations, finding it difficult to move ahead. Slowdowns, reparations, and reconsiderations are significant in your work, health pursuits, daily routines, and habits. There can be weighty issues and delays to manage related to your job or health care.
Keep in mind that pushing yourself during this cycle, Capricorn, particularly in these areas of life, will only lead to frustrations and slowdowns. It’s time to review whether you’re pursuing your desires, and for considering making changes to your approach to getting what you want from your work, relationships, and self-care programs.
Enthusiasm for your current job or health regimes could wane perhaps due to setbacks or stalling, but the adjustments you make now can be valuable. Watch for pent-up anger and passive-aggressiveness on the job or with those with whom you spend much of your daily life. Daily routines or work may feel a little lifeless until you figure out ways to spruce things up. Reorganizing and editing efforts can be very fruitful during this cycle.
Because Mars is the natural ruler of your solar fourth house, issues surrounding home and family may also (or instead) be subject to delays and reconsiderations or adjustments during this Mars retrograde period.

The horoscope on this page, Capricorn Yearly, shows the trends and predictions for the year in detail. Because outer planet transits are lengthy, there are variations in the timing of outer planet transits for each of the three decans of Capricorn, and these are shown below the main, general forecast.
Every year, we see challenges and opportunities in different areas. It’s my hope that by understanding these areas of potential disruption and ease, you can make the most of these trends by seeking out the opportunities and managing the challenges.
The following chart shows the outer planets and other points in relation to your sign, revealing whether they are harmonizing with or challenging Capricorn:
Grey is neutral (no direct relationship, but can be picky, nagging),
Pink is challenging (the planet is in direct, challenging relationship to your sign),
and Green is easy and supportive (the planet or point is in a direct, harmonious relationship with your sign).
The largely green graph above suggests a plethora of harmonious outer planet transits.
As is evident in the above chart, you have considerably more support than not from the outer planets again this year, although there will be some adjustments to make in 2022.
Uranus and Neptune harmonize with Capricorn. Besides Pluto’s continued long-term transit of your sign which is depicted as harmonious but can also bring some pressure, the only challenging bodies are Chiron and, for half the year, Jupiter.

Overview: Harmony and Challenge of Outer Planets:
Let’s start with the energies that you’re accustomed to: Pluto, of course, is a long-term guest in your sign. Its transit challenges you to change, grow, and improve. It’s been with you for many years. Fortunately, it’s in pretty good shape in 2022, suggesting a little more ease understanding what it wants of you.
Uranus and Neptune harmonizing with your sign boost you on the levels of inspiration and dreams. These transits help lighten up the heavier Pluto energy. Pluto on its own tends to pull out your lone wolf tendency, but Uranus and Neptune keep you feeling spirited and supported–they round things out well.
Chiron’s transit suggests some discomfort, conflicts, and clashes, but nothing you can’t handle. Family and home life can need some sorting and healing.
