What Jupiter’s transit through Capricorn means to you…
Jupiter enters Capricorn on December 18th, 2007, and stays in this cardinal earth sign until January 5th, 2009. See how this transit affects each zodiac sign below.
Jupiter’s effects are to expand our experiences, our knowledge, and our understanding. Jupiter represents optimism, growth, generosity, joy, and abundance. In Sagittarius, Jupiter urged us to increase our cultural and spiritual awareness, to expand our higher minds, to broaden our experiences, and to have faith in the universe. Capricorn’s focus is, of course, different than Sagittarian areas of expertise.
Capricorn is an Earth sign. With an Earth sign Jupiter, we are practical realists who need to visualize results in order to feel motivated to achieve them. We are “doers” who are not easily lured by get rich quick schemes! During this cycle, we are not risk takers–we need direction, clear goals, and strong plans, and we value tangible results.
With Jupiter in Capricorn, we attract the most good fortune when we organize and direct, conduct ourselves with integrity, are ethical and mature. We need to take a disciplined, committed, step-by-step approach to realizing our goals.
We have a strong need for concrete results. Our attitude towards work and practical, realistic action is positive. Our attitudes and values concerning religion, moral conduct, education, and politics are rather conservative and traditional. Our judgment is prudent and mature, but we may lack the imagination or risk-taking attitude that allows us to innovate. We need to learn to be more flexible and tolerant of weaknesses.
Jupiter is in its fall in the sign of Capricorn–in other words, it is not at its happiest, most expansive position in this Saturn-ruled sign.
Jupiter’s zeal can supersede moderation at times. It can expand the more negative qualities of a sign, just as it can expand the positive traits. Its zeal and enthusiasm is well-intentioned, but it can blind us to our immoderate behavior. In Capricorn, we can be materialistic and miserly. However, the “higher” vibration of Jupiter looks for perspective. Jupiter’s “perspective” isn’t a detached, analytical, or detailed look at any given situation, but an overview–a look at the “big picture”. With Jupiter, ideally, we are able to rise above pettiness, mundane concerns, inconveniences, and the like. Where Jupiter is currently transiting in your own chart is generally where you are inclined to find your “joy” at this stage in your development.

You want to create a distinct first impression on others, and you tend to do just that. Furthering your personal ambitions and interests comes more easily during this cycle. At times, you may feel like the sky is the limit! You might need to guard against becoming too full of yourself or overly self-interested, however.
