Jupiter’s Transit of Capricorn: December 2, 2019 to December 19, 2020
What Jupiter’s transit through Capricorn means for you…
Jupiter enters Capricorn on December 2, 2019, and stays in this cardinal earth sign until December 19th, 2020. See how this transit affects the signs of the zodiac later in the page. First, we’ll look into what Jupiter in Capricorn means for us in general.
Jupiter’s effects are to expand our experiences, our knowledge, and our understanding. Jupiter represents optimism, growth, generosity, 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. Now, with Jupiter in Capricorn, a new focus comes into play.
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. This is how we grow and expand. 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 best good fortune when we organize and direct, conduct ourselves with integrity, and employ an ethical and mature approach. We need to take a disciplined, committed, step-by-step approach to the realization of 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 during this cycle. Our judgment is prudent and mature, but we may lack the imagination or risk-taking attitude that helps us to innovate at times. We need to learn to be more flexible and tolerant of weaknesses during this transit. We should also watch for an overly self-serving approach.
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.
Because Jupiter’s nature is extravagant, we must guard against “too much.” 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 are well-intentioned, but it can blind us to our immoderate behaviors. In Capricorn, we can be materialistic and miserly. Especially as it aligns with Pluto in Capricorn during the course of its transit of the sign, we may be quite power-hungry or status-conscious during this period. These are things to watch for.
However, the higher vibration or expression of Jupiter seeks 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 our joy at this stage in our development. This area of your life expands and improves in some manner. There is also a need for new tools to develop these areas of life. In order to develop, we need to pursue our goals with determination, ambition, responsibility, and common sense.
With Jupiter in Capricorn, we value achievement in the long term and we’re especially proud of ourselves when we’re taking responsibility for ourselves. We succeed through resourcefulness and reducing waste. We may very well get a window into areas where we have been limiting ourselves due to wasting our time, energy, and resources. Some form of streamlining is important at this time, particularly with Saturn’s transit of Capricorn taking place concurrently for most of the Jupiter in Capricorn transit.
During this Jupiter in Capricorn cycle, we particularly value integrity, common sense, practicality, patience, reflection, wisdom, precision, discretion, restraint, reliability, self-control, and self-reliance.
Jupiter in Capricorn is a time for pouring extra attention into the structures that hold us up. We are shrewd, strategic, and careful. We may take great pleasure in establishing more order in our lives and in the performance of our duties. Jupiter in Capricorn is opportunistic, perhaps revealing to us areas where we might turn a profit, turn around, and repurpose. We may see more Capricorn themes and topics in the media as we become more and more fascinated with Capricorn energies.
Health issues with Jupiter are usually related to excesses, while Capricorn issues are often connected to the knee or bones, to obstructions, rheumatism or arthritis, or issues related to melancholia. It’s possible that latent problems in these areas can magnify during this Jupiter transit.
Energetically speaking, Jupiter and Capricorn are not a particularly good match. However, with Saturn in Capricorn concurrently for most of the transit (Saturn does leave Capricorn briefly from March 21-July 1 in 2020), Jupiter helps to create more joy and pleasure in pursuing our goals.

Jupiter’s trine to Uranus opens us up to new energies, approaches, and attitudes, which is particularly useful with Jupiter in the traditional sign of Capricorn. Fortunate events occur as a direct result of our willingness to entertain the unusual and to think outside of the box. This transit favors group activities, financial endeavors associated with groups or organizational efforts, educational pursuits, writing, publishing, speaking, and humanitarian efforts. Pursuits can thrive if they’re fed with progressive, inventive energy, and it’s important to allow some breathing room to come up with new ideas. We’re open to possibilities and new ways of doing things, and we’re also quite focused on being fair and impartial. It’s a good time for digital learning. Unfortunately, it’s only a one-time pass, occurring in December.
Jupiter sextile Neptune
Jupiter’s sextile to Neptune suggests we’re able to check in with our needs for imagination and dreams or spirituality, helping us moderate some of the more extreme expressions of this Jupiter in Capricorn transit. We’re able to incorporate and manage our expectations, faith, and dreams. It helps us maintain a sense of proportion and to consider our morals and spiritual values as we pursue our objectives. It’s a time for connecting with idealistic and humanitarian goals, making connections with people from vastly different backgrounds than us and learning from their perspectives, and otherwise widening our experiences and broadening our minds. This transit first occurs with exactitude in February, again in July, and finally in October of 2020, affecting us from January to October, effectively.
Along approximately the same timeline, Jupiter conjuncts Pluto, magnifying our ambitions to better ourselves or our circumstances. We can be doggedly determined to make improvements. We might also take things too far with this combination, and in the sign of Capricorn, this can relate to power. As long as we channel our intense ambitions appropriately, this can be a powerful period for achievement. We’re striving toward autonomy, driven to improve our circumstances, and seeking prosperity with determination. We want to take something to a completely new level. However we define success at this time in our lives, we’re ready to do what it takes to achieve it. There is a real sense that we can achieve something of significance now. We might focus this energy on an important project or focus it inward–on bettering ourselves through greater self-understanding. Overcoming obstacles can figure strongly during this transit.
Perhaps the most interesting side to this transit is the discovery of our deeper desires–our resentments or jealousies give us windows into things we may not have known (or dared to admit to ourselves) we wanted, and it’s a time when we’re embracing these desires. Jupiter is wonderful at opening our minds to possibilities. As such, this is an excellent year for identifying our deeper wants, desires, and ambitions, and for pursuing these passions, whether it’s a hobby, adventure, lifestyle, or line of work. This transit lasts from approximately March to November 2020.
Jupiter’s alignment with the South Node of the Moon (which is the same as its opposition to the North Node) in January points to some tendency to grab at those things that comfort us but that are no longer serving us well for our growth and development. We should watch for these types of excesses, which can magnify at this time. We may be attempting to avoid closeness and emotional intimacy both with loved ones and ourselves by grabbing too tightly onto our material goals and ambitions. It can be difficult to trust our intuition under this influence until we can learn to embrace our emotional side by engaging our feelings as well as our need for nurture. While Jupiter encourages us to embrace our ambitions and our focus on achievement, without balancing our vision with our intuition, we may flounder.
Jupiter’s Minor Outer Planet Aspects of Jupiter while in Capricorn:
Dec 20, 2019, at 1:14 PM, Jupiter is quintile Neptune
Mar 23, 2020, at 2:42 AM, Jupiter at 23 Capricorn 14′ is quintile Chiron
Jun 1, 2020, at 4:05 AM, Jupiter at 26 Capricorn 45′ is quintile Chiron
Nov 15, 2020, at 1:38 PM, Jupiter at 23 Capricorn 21′ is quintile Chiron
Nov 29, 2020, at 1:12 PM, Jupiter at 25 Capricorn 54′ is biquintile the True North Node
Effectively, Jupiter is quintile Chiron from March to November 2020. This transit helps open our minds to others’ struggles and facilitates explaining our perspective to others. We’re more willing to learn and grow through our experiences under this influence. Both Jupiter and Chiron are good for seeing the whole of a situation, making holisitic problem-solving particularly rewarding and successful as these bodies connect through a creative aspect.
The following conjunctions of inner planets to Jupitercan help us pinpoint particularly opportune period for Jupiter in Capricorn (times are Eastern):
Mercury aligns with Jupiter on January 2, 2020, at 11:41 AM (Mercury and Jupiter are at 7 degrees Capricorn 04′). Our ideas are big, brilliant, and inspiring.
Mars aligns with Jupiter on March 20, 2020, at 7:35 AM (Mars and Jupiter are at 22 degrees Capricorn 49′). Mars aligns with Jupiter, encouraging our enterprise and initiative.
Jupiter in Capricorn (December 2019 to December 2020) and Business/Career Jupiter encourages a determined approach to business during the course of this transit. However, this comes at a time when Saturn in Capricorn — an overlapping transit for the most part — gives us a different message. While Jupiter asks us to grow, expand, and believe, Saturn asks us to simplify, test, and question. We may need to use our better judgment on when to do what. Saturn is quite stubbornly and comfortably in its own sign, so it won’t want to compromise. We need to be principled to succeed in business and career during current transits. It’s an excellent period for getting comfortable with those in authority or with higher-ups. Showing our dedication and consistency, long-term viability and promise, as well as conservatism and willingness to simplify if it serves a good purpose.
Conservative and traditional values may be quite prized during this transit. Rags to riches stories appeal. Businesses related to old age, health care, the bones including teeth, government, the sea, purging, transformation, organization and streamlining, parenting, management, and administration may prosper. Maturity may be more important than innovation at this time. There can be significant advances in health care. As was the case when Jupiter was in Sagittarius, it’s an important time for doing the right moral thing.
Jupiter in Capricorn (December 2019 to December 2020) and Relationships/Love Jupiter in Capricorn is dedicated, committed, and rather content but also traditional and conservative. Combined with strict Saturn in Capricorn for most of the transit, suggests that we may be less tolerant of lies and deception in our relationships than usual during this cycle. We might consider working together or showing interest in one another’s goals and ambitions to improve our connections. We’re attracted to people who are mature, responsible, and ambitious at this time.
Jupiter in Capricorn Ephemeris 2019-2020 (Monthly)
Jupiter’s recent transits: In Aries (most recently, from June 2010 to June 2011), Jupiter encouraged us to make our own opportunities, to believe in ourselves, and to take charge of our lives. Jupiter will be in Aries next from May 2022 to October 2022 and then December 2022 to May 2023.
In Taurus (from June 2011 to June 2012), Jupiter urged us to enjoy and appreciate what we already have and to adopt a patient approach to achieving our goals. Jupiter will return to Taurus next from May 2023 to May 2024.
In Gemini (from June 2012 to June 2013), Jupiter encouraged us to learn as much as we could about the people around us, as well as to share and connect. Jupiter will return to Gemini next from May 2024 to June 2025.
In Cancer (from June 2013 to July 2014), Jupiter motivated us to honor our intuition, emotions, families, and inner needs, and to build our support systems.
In Leo (from July 2014 to August 2015), Jupiter encouraged us to express ourselves confidently, to be generous and creative, and to find new ways to enjoy ourselves.
In Virgo (from August 2015 to September 2016), Jupiter motivated us to take pride in our health, work, services, and routines.
In Libra (from September 2016 to October 2017), Jupiter expanded our awareness of our partnerships, the need to slip into the shoes of our partners, the importance of equality, and our diplomacy skills.
In Scorpio (from October 2017 to November 2018), Jupiter expanded our awareness of our intimate relationships, personal power, and coping skills.
In Sagittarius (from November 2018 to December 2019), 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.
Jupiter spends over a year in the sign of Capricorn. The last time Jupiter transited Capricorn was from December 2007 to January 2009. What we started during this period is now enjoying a Jupiter return — it’s going through a rebirth, of sorts — so that it might blossom, increase, or require adjustments in order to grow further.
Before that period, Jupiter was in Capricorn from January 1996 to January 1997, from January 1984 to February 1985, from February to July 1972 and then September 1972 to February 1973, and from March to June 1960 and then October 1960 to March 1961. If you have Jupiter in Capricorn in your natal chart, then YOU are enjoying a Jupiter return.
Jupiter Transiting Capricorn Horoscopes: What it Means for Each Sign
The following are excerpted from my 2020 Preview Horoscopes. In a general sense, this is how Jupiter’s transit through Capricorn affects the different Sun signs (and Ascendant signs):
From December 2nd, 2019, to December 19, 2020, Jupiter climbs to the top of your solar chart. Your ambitions, career, business goals, and reputation grow and develop. Your talents and skills are recognized now like never before (at least not in twelve years). All of the hard work you’ve put in begins to pay off and is rewarded – or at the very least, recognized.
You are in the limelight in some way during this cycle. Although it’s a great period for expansion and recognition on a professional level, and you should take advantage of it, choose your projects carefully. Don’t take on more than you can handle. Watch also for gossip or mishandling of information. Be wary of situations that could get blown out of proportion or misunderstood. While Jupiter bestows gifts, these can be wasted if we go to great excess. As well, because Jupiter, which rules expansion, is in Saturn’s sign, which rules contraction, it’s best not to go overboard.
This can be a time of significant progress in the outer world, a fortunate change in status, and increased recognition.
With this transit, there are several possible scenarios that depend on your particular situation. Your hard work and effort can be recognized now. You could find yourself in a position that truly suits you. You take great pride in the work you do. For some of you, more prestige or a higher social standing may be part of the picture now. You can be quite charismatic in a position of authority or responsibility. Advancement in achieving an important goal can occur now. Your reputation may be enhanced in some significant way. You have more faith in your goals and aspirations during this period of your life.
This is a time when believing in yourself, your competency, and your ability to take the lead opens up opportunities for you. For the most part, you are likely to take advantage of this period in your life in order to expand your reach. You’re in a period in which you find considerably more joy in your work or feel particularly good about where you’re heading.
Your worldly or public status may change for the better. There could be a promotion, new job opportunities, a diploma, an important award, or marriage — something official.
This can be a time for coming into the limelight in a significant way. Authority figures or other influential people tend to look upon you favorably, see more potential in you, and readily help you along, so work it! Something might happen now, or circumstances are such, that your career (or professional interests in general) expands, and you find more joy and pleasure from your work. You could enjoy more freedom, or possibly even responsibilities, in your career. Either way, it’s a move for the better in your mind. Integrity, directness, and honesty will get you everywhere now. The more willing you are to put yourself in the limelight, the more positive the rewards–this is not the time to be a shrinking violet!
From February to October, you get special support from your intuition, from behind the scenes, or you benefit from past work. This is a wonderful time for bringing more imagination and compassion to the equation. Another influence overlaps and happens from April to November: you get a power boost to your career, reputation, or life path goals. Ambition increases, and so does enjoyment of what you’re doing and where you’re headed!
Interestingly, while this influence encourages you to expand, grow, and reach for the stars in the areas of career, you’ll see that another theme in your life, explored in the Areas of Contraction section of the full 2020 Horoscope Preview for Aries, encourages the opposite. This can help you come to a productive balance. Ideally, you don’t swing between expanding and contracting.
The most favorable periods for these matters occur while Jupiter is in direct motion in your solar tenth house, from December 2nd, 2019, to May 13th, 2020, and then from September 13th, 2020, to December 18th, 2020.
From December 2nd, 2019, to December 19, 2020, your belief systems, learning experiences, and hunger for adventure develop, grow, and expand at a rapid pace. You are feeling more courageous and spirited as you sense that there is more “out there” for you to learn and take in. This transit is a happy one, although it can seem subtle since it runs so smoothly!
This is a time in your life when you don’t sweat the small stuff as much as you normally do. You see the broader perspective on life, and you generally feel supported, so that smaller inconveniences don’t stress you out quite as easily. Your positive outlook is notable during this cycle. Learn as much as you can now, in preparation for the next cycle beginning in December 2020 that puts your career on center stage. You’ll want to be prepared!
Your views on life in a broad sense are changing, growing, and maturing. Connections with faraway cultures, people, or a broader knowledge base can open up opportunities to grow personally. Teaching and sharing knowledge can be in strong focus. It’s a good time for publishing, writing, and media.
You might consider fine-tuning your talents and skills with higher education or experience during this thirteen-month cycle.
New learning experiences as well as “life” experiences (travel, adventures, contacts with others of a vastly different culture than yours, and so forth) are likely to emerge. Over the course of the coming year, you might have the opportunity to reach a broader audience. You might choose to learn a new language or take on other interesting studies.
From February to October, you get special support from friends and associations, or you are particularly inspired to grow, improve, explore, discover, and move outside of your comfort zone. Another influence overlaps and happens from April to November: you get a power boost forward that motivates you to learn something new or explore new ideas and/or places. Ambition increases, and so does enjoyment of what you’re doing and where you’re headed! This is a good time for feeling both motivated and inspired. People and experiences outside of your norm can affect or inspire you. You’re also no longer tolerant of procrastination or denial–you recognize your desire to grow, improve, and transform now.
This can be a time when you make friends in faraway places or who have vastly different backgrounds or perspectives than you and who enrich your life during this empowering cycle. You’re likely to enjoy opportunities to expand your experiences and to impress others. Education can be transformative now, leading to important opportunities.
The most favorable periods for these matters occur while Jupiter is in direct motion in your solar ninth house, from December 2nd, 2019, to May 13th, 2020, and then from September 13th, 2020, to December 18th, 2020.
From December 2nd, 2019, to December 19, 2020, there is a wonderful, refreshing focus on your private world or intimate life – a possible deepening of a relationship, or an increased understanding of your inner workings–a boost in your relationship with yourself! Your intimate life enlarges and expands, bringing you more joy and new discoveries.
During this cycle, you learn to embrace inner change in order to feel more empowered. There may be more opportunities to find support, financial and/or emotional, but you should be wary of living on credit and borrowing too heavily from the future.
During this year-long transit, it’s time to grab opportunities that help you to feel empowered and on top of your life. Conversations are deep and lead to fruitful discoveries. Sexuality is richer. There can be benefits and support coming your way through or from others, whether it’s refunds, an easier time getting loans or mortgages, a partner’s income increases or you inherit something valuable. Combining your resources, talents, and/or money with those of a partner can improve your financial outlook. You might also benefit from managing others’ resources and talents without the “teaming up” part. All depends on your current circumstances.
These things are more likely to relate to a partnership or key relationship in your life since Jupiter rules these things in your solar chart. There may be a metamorphosis of sorts related to a partnership.
Potential negatives: Taking on too much debt or relying too heavily on others for support. Be wise when/if lending and borrowing.
Otherwise, it’s a strong period for opening yourself up to others and for feeling more confident about your emotional depths. This is a period when you can quite successfully purge yourself of some of your inner demons, guilt, and buried psychological problems. While there can be some reality checks at times, it’s a powerful time for psychological growth. Imaginative activities or behind the scenes efforts can be rewarding, either (or both) spiritually and materially. Generosity, faith, and compassion increase. You may be opening up to family or loved ones and sharing your burdens.
This influence also positively impacts your career, especially from February to October. From April to November, you’re in particularly good shape for going in deep, advancing your goals, attracting support, and enjoying a deeper connection with a person or project.
The most favorable periods for these matters occur while Jupiter is in direct motion in your solar eighth house, from December 2nd, 2019, to May 13th, 2020, and then from September 13th, 2020, to December 18th, 2020.
From December 2nd, 2019, to December 19, 2020, your relationships receive a boost of forward-moving energy. This cycle that lasts over a year helps you succeed in partnership or improve your relationship status/situation.
Your partnerships, relating abilities, and powers of negotiation begin to grow and expand. New partnership opportunities can arrive now, or the chance to bring fresh energy to an existing committed relationship emerges. Relationships entered into now are generally successful and happy — they are mutually beneficial. Sometimes, this transit absolves an existing partnership, but if this is the case, it is likely to come as a relief, or it is a “blessing in disguise.” Meeting someone better for you at this point in your life may be a reason for this, although it’s important not to jump into something new blindly. Your ability to get along with others is enhanced as you are especially willing to compromise, and you are more appealing than usual.
The positive potentials of this transit are many: You can negotiate more successfully, and, if applicable, win in legal matters. Legal matters or challenging relationship problems from the past can be resolved, and more casual disputes can be settled amicably as well. You may find yourself taking on the role of consultant or advisor, or you could benefit from help from same. Good publicity may come your way. If your career has you working with or before the public, you can safely expect increased popularity now, particularly if you do counseling or negotiating in your job. Relationships and partnerships benefit from expansive, warm energy, difficult relationships may be absolved, and/or successful new ones are entered into during this period.
Jupiter rules your sector of work, health, habits, and routines. Any of these things can be tied with partnerships during this time. A romantic or business partnership could form through your work or through connections you make in your pursuit of lifestyle changes, or a lifestyle change/makeover may result from collaboration. A partnership may strengthen as you work together or pursue the same/similar health program.
This can also be a time when shared beliefs, interests, and ideologies are a focal point in a close relationship. For some, a significant person comes into your life with common educational goals or belief systems, possibly through long-distance connections, schools, or publishing/online activities. For many of you, you are attracting people who want to help, who are on your side, and who take a strong interest in you.
Potential negatives: You may be attracting partners who are more concerned with freedom than with pairing, or who seem to be quite extravagant or full of themselves. There could be troubles associated with an existing partner’s extravagance or demand for freedom.
However, for the most part, you are likely to enjoy an improved social life during this cycle. You learn a lot through your experiences and interactions with an important “other.” From February to October, you are in an excellent opportunity period for taking advantage of the benefits of this influence. This can be a time for enjoying alternative or extra-curricular activities with a partner or for connecting with someone significant through mind-expanding experiences or non-routine activities. A partnership can be a source of inspiration, and the realization of a happiness goal seems more likely now through the support or positivity of a friend/partner. Another influence from April to November is powerful for making alliances.
The most favorable periods for these matters occur while Jupiter is in direct motion in your solar seventh house, from December 2nd, 2019, to May 13th, 2020, and then from September 13th, 2020, to December 18th, 2020.
From December 2nd, 2019, to December 19, 2020, your work, daily routines, and health endeavors continue to expand, improve, and grow. This is a time when your work projects or duties expand, or you have increased opportunities for employment. You can be so confident in your ability to take on projects and endeavors, however, that you overload your plate, so do watch for that. Even so, Saturn’s concurrent transit can help keep you in line and productive. This influence is with you for all of 2020 with the exception of the last two weeks of the year.
You find more joy in your work (as long as you don’t overload), self-improvement endeavors, and taking care of your health. If you provide a service to others, it is likely to prosper, largely because you’re enjoying it more. You are especially successful in hiring people to work for you, if applicable, and improvements to your working environment are likely. It can be easier than usual to find employment now. You may get a new job during this cycle or significantly improve an existing one. Work tends to be very available to you. You can be very focused on what really matters to get ahead, and recognition for your efforts may be forthcoming, particularly from December forward, when higher-ups recognize your talents and efforts.
You are proud of how useful you are to others during this cycle. The more integrity and honesty you bring to your services, the more “payback” you will receive. Health is likely to prosper now, and medical procedures or programs, if necessary, are more likely to be successful. You are bringing fresh and original ideas to the work you do and the services you offer. Overload or the magnification of problems surrounding work can be experienced during this cycle. There is a tendency now to focus on the details of your work, and you might sometimes feel a little overwhelmed with monotonous tasks. There may be an inclination to put on some weight, however, if you don’t watch your sweet tooth.
Your work might involve more services or the assisting of others during this cycle, and for some, health-related or healing professions can be attractive at this time.
Challenges may occur sporadically during this period with the need for time away from your duties either to take care of yourself or of others requiring care, or the consequences of taking on so much that you have trouble taking time for yourself.
However, for the most part, this is a good time for winning appreciation for what you do or for your skills, enjoying what you do, for finding work, and for working relationships. An influence occurring from February to October supports your sense of a higher purpose and general enjoyment of your work and daily affairs. You take more interest in your psychological health and how it impacts your physical health, and you may receive rewards on financial and/or intimate levels.
Another booster occurs from April to November and is powerful for ramping up your ambition and your sense of personal power for getting things done. You are super motivated to improve your life, particularly through the pursuit of a healthier lifestyle and through your daily routines, habits, chores, tasks, services, and work.
Romance may be closely tied to work and health during this period, which can mean you are pairing up to work or improve your health or you meet a love interest through your work or through the pursuit of health goals. This may instead be about recreation or creativity. There can be opportunities to express or enjoy yourself coming as the result of your work, or chances to bring more creativity to your job. Some might turn a hobby into a vocation or work especially hard on a pastime.
Interestingly, these areas of expansion are also subject to contraction! These influences don’t cancel themselves out. Instead, they co-exist and they can stir up some wonderful productivity. You may be working hard but thoroughly enjoying it as you do!
The most favorable periods for these matters occur while Jupiter is in direct motion in your solar sixth house, from December 2nd, 2019, to May 13th, 2020, and then from September 13th, 2020, to December 18th, 2020.
From December 2nd, 2019, to December 19, 2020, your creative, playful, and romantic side expands and develops. This is a powerful time for self-expression, new forms of entertainment, and romantic explorations.
Your focus is now on having a fun time, enjoying life, and expressing yourself in freeing, rewarding ways. Your romantic and creative worlds grow and expand. Your desire to express your unique side and creativity increases. You are learning to express yourself playfully and creatively without apology, and you are more willing to take some personal risks in order to do so!
Romantic opportunities tend to abound during this cycle; or chances to kick back and have fun, express yourself in unique ways, and pursue hobbies and entertainment are abundant. Creatively speaking, you can be filled with ideas and plans for realizing a dream.
This can be a fertile time on many levels, physically and emotionally. This influence is associated with casual dating and exploring romantic possibilities more so than binding relationships.
This enhancing, supportive influence is also strong for good fortune with your home and family.
Potential negatives: Excessive emphasis on, or attention to, having fun to the detriment of other life departments. Throughout this transit, you may need to come to a balance between attention to friendships and community and attention to romantic and creative needs.
However, for the most part, you are likely to feel supported and confident during this approximately year-long cycle. A booster occurs from February to October and is a magical influence for your relationships. Creative partnerships might be formed during this period. Partnerships can be enhanced with increased attention to creativity, imagination, and recreation. Another booster occurs from April to November, and it’s powerful for your ambition, drive, and sense of personal power. You can be determined to make something of a creative project, for example. You are also in an excellent position to make positive changes to your life during this period.
Interestingly, these areas of life that are set to expand are the same areas set to contract (see the Areas of Contraction section of the 2020 Preview Horoscope for more details). These opposite influences don’t act to cancel the individual influences out. Instead, they coexist and you may get a chance to blend them to your benefit. This can be a productive time when hunkering down or committing can be joyful.
The most favorable periods for these matters occur while Jupiter is in direct motion in your solar fifth house, from December 2nd, 2019, to May 13th, 2020, and then from September 13th, 2020, to December 18th, 2020.
From December 2nd, 2019, to December 19, 2020, you are more confident about your family, living arrangements, and living conditions. These areas of life expand and improve. While this is a rather domestic transit, relationships with anyone you feel especially connected with emotionally can benefit, grow, and expand.
You are comfortable with your position, and you may be building loving and secure connections with others. There can be special attention to the comfort and beauty of your home or a stronger desire to connect with your roots. There is also a greater ability to bounce back from problems.
Your inner world, family life, domestic activities, and domestic arrangements expand and grow. Relations with family can be especially pleasant and supportive. There are various ways this energy can play out, depending on your current situation. You might move to a new home, likely a bigger one, or expand real estate holdings. Some of you can get a mortgage or support that allows you to expand your home base. Family itself can expand, or there might be an addition to your home. Some might take on a roommate for example, or bring more friends to their home. Others might pool resources with a partner and move in together. Entertaining in the home can be emphasized if that is something that makes you happy. Otherwise, you can experience a stronger sense of peace and privacy in your home life.
Because Jupiter is the natural ruler of your solar third house of communications, attitude, learning, and connecting, home life can be busier than usual with personal interests, visits, and studying, or you’re more connected at home. There can also be a strong desire to communicate about your home life or to share your domestic world with others.
Generally speaking, more positive energy is brought to your domestic world, and long-standing problems with family might be put to bed. Do be careful about overextending yourself with home improvements, or larger accommodations that are beyond your means. Your personal life tends to overshadow your professional life or material activities during this cycle. Relationships with family can improve significantly now, although pre-existing problems might be magnified initially.
This can be a good time to set up a home business or for home studies. On a more psychological level, confidence in yourself and feelings of security increase during this period.
Potential problems: Excessive money spent on home improvement, too much emphasis on the home to the point that other areas of your life suffer, or some unwillingness to expand your horizons. Avoiding or escaping responsibilities may be a problem from time to time. You may be wanting to please too many people, and overdoing things leaves you exhausted, as it seems there is never enough time and energy to meet all your needs.
However, this influences overlaps with one that helps stabilize you, and these potential problems are even less likely as a result. As well,there are two excellent supportive aspects that help you further. From February to October, you’re in great shape for improving your daily routines and home situation so that work and health benefit. You can be improving relationships with family and co-workers through increased understanding. As well, from April to November, a booster influence increases your ambition to make serious and long-lasting improvements to your domestic and personal life.
For the most part, you are likely to feel emotionally secure and supported during this cycle. This is a time of nest-feathering. It’s also a strong time for psychotherapy and purging as you are willing to look at the root of problems. It’s a good period for long-term financial planning and strengthening your financial picture through some form of pooling of resources. There can be more power and resources available to you to establish yourself, especially through a home or property, but also for long-term business endeavors. This is a time of working hard on or around the home, but you’re enjoying yourself as you do!
The most favorable periods for these matters occur while Jupiter is in direct motion in your solar fourth house, from December 2nd, 2019, to May 13th, 2020, and then from September 13th, 2020, to December 18th, 2020.
From December 2nd, 2019, to December 19, 2020, you are set to expand your personal interests, mind, and connections. You are ready to take on big projects! Your confidence in the future is very strong during this cycle that is with you for most of the year 2020.
During this trend, your communications increase and expand. Depending on your current situation and your unique personality/circumstances, this influence can play out in a number of ways. You enjoy a greater ability (and desire) to express yourself, and your personal interests grow. You might develop a mental interest or project more fully this year. Good fortune with vehicles, transportation, through siblings, and with the communications industry can be experienced during this cycle. You are more perceptive, and others are more receptive to your ideas. New opportunities to communicate can open up to you. This can be a busy, exciting, and rewarding period for learning.
Potential problems: Taking on too many daily activities, communications, new interests, and learning endeavors or studies can be a problem now. Don’t overload your plate. There can be a real tendency to want to do it all, forgetting your limits in terms of time and energy.Taking on too many projects or becoming too entrenched in details can cause problems.
However, for the most part, you are likely to enjoy more opportunities through your communications and contact with others during this cycle that spans from December 2019 to December 2020.
A booster transit that supports all of these efforts worth noting occurs from February to October, when you are especially creative. Communications boost romance and love in your life. Your imagination blossoms, and creative writing, speaking, and other such pursuits can thrive. It’s a good time to expand your mind and connect with others through the mind. Falling in love through the power of words is not out of question with this influence.
Another boost occurs from April to November when you can feel especially enthusiastic, ambitious, and motivated to improve your life through your studies, projects, and connections. It’s a powerful time for personal appeal through your communications, persuasion, finding your voice, and feeling a sense of mission about what you’re doing, learning, teaching, and sharing. Perhaps most importantly, you’re discovering your own deeper ambitions and aspirations, and you’re drawing upon resources and talents you may not have even known you had to push a project forward or to achieve your goals.
You might find that you travel less, if applicable, and that you are busier locally. Your thinking is more upbeat, positive, and forward-looking, and so is the way you express yourself. In fact, this is an excellent time for improving your communication skills and your general attitude or mindset. There can be important opportunities through meetings, courses, teaching, and connections made in the neighborhood or through siblings. Some problems with siblings or neighbors could be put to rest now, although they might be magnified initially in order for problem areas to come out into the open and finally be resolved. Some of you might return to school or take some courses.
There can be increased communications with siblings, classmates, and peers in general during this period. You could be finding that transportation options now available make life a little more enjoyable. Since the ruler of your money and resources sector is moving through your communications sector during this period, and your income can be tightly tied in with communications and/or transit. Word of mouth can improve your money situation.
Interestingly, these areas of life in which you’re expanding overlap with the areas of contraction influence outlined in the full Horoscope Preview. While they are opposite influences, this doesn’t cancel the influences out. Instead, these transits coexist. You may be able to blend them successfully, or you could find that some areas expand while others contract. In fact, this can be a powerfully ambitious and positive time when you enjoy working hard at your studies or personal interests. You can find pleasure and joy through self-discipline in these areas of life, in other words!
The most favorable periods for these matters occur while Jupiter is in direct motion in your solar third house, from December 2nd, 2019, to May 13th, 2020, and then from September 13th, 2020, to December 18th, 2020.
From December 2nd, 2019, to December 19, 2020, money, personal possessions, valuables, and self-worth are set to expand, increase, improve, and grow. Your desire for security and comfort is hearty now, and you’ll pursue these things with more confidence and verve. You feel that you deserve more!
This is a strong time for buying long-term valuables. You are likely to make bigger decisions about your material resources during this period.
This cycle is strong for attracting more money from your professional endeavors and for expanding a business. Be careful if you are suddenly in the position to receive, for example, a credit line or sizeable loan – spend wisely, in other words. You should certainly watch for overspending.
Potential difficulties: Be on the alert for an attitude towards money that is careless. If you are accumulating personal possessions too quickly, this can lead to clutter and disorganization. If you’re overconfident about your ability to make money, then you might take foolish risks, such as borrowing from your future. Watch for over-indulgence. Be extra careful if lending or borrowing.
Otherwise, this is a good period for bringing a fresh, positive, and confident attitude towards your own self-worth and value, and to your practical affairs, including work. You could be more enthusiastic or optimistic about earning a living. A money problem may clear up. A major purchase or sale can figure strongly.
You have another concurrent influence, outlined in Contraction section of the full 2020 Horoscope Preview for Sagittarius, that helps to counteract the difficult potentials of this influence. As well, you seem to have the practicality and vision to bring your dreams into concrete manifestation this year.
As well, there are two booster influences that support expanding your resources, developing your talents, and improving your money situation. From February to October, there can be material benefits related to your home, family, or real estate. Improving home life can tie in with a better income or attitude toward money and talents during this trend. Another booster that spans from April to November pumps everything up–you’re ambitious, confident, and ready to pour all of yourself into building your talents or resources. This is a power period for talents, money, and business.
Your personality, confidence, and verve can add to your income during this period. Earning your way is more important to you than usual in the year ahead. It can be a time of a pleasant feeling of self-sufficiency. There can be powerful changes in how you view your money, resources, assets, personal belongings, and natural talents or earning power during this period.
The most favorable periods for these matters occur while Jupiter is in direct motion in your solar second house, from December 2nd, 2019, to May 13th, 2020, and then from September 13th, 2020, to December 18th, 2020.
From December 2nd, 2019, to December 19, 2020, Jupiter is in your sign! This approximately one-year transit comes only every twelve years and serves to bring you out of your shell. You’re ready to take on the world! This is a time for exploring your needs and pursuing your dreams. Your personality, image, body image, and self-confidence expand to new levels with Jupiter in your sign from December 2019 to December 2020. You are seeing whole new possibilities, and your vision of life is panoramic.
If you’ve done your inner “work” well while Jupiter was transiting your solar twelfth house from November 2018 to December 2019, this can be an especially rewarding period. Your confidence in yourself and faith in the world are growing exponentially. Freedom is something you seek, but be wary of the costs of freedom when it’s pursued without necessary attention to responsibilities.
You are more willing to enjoy new experiences and to rid yourself of those things that have been holding you back from truly living and owning your life.
There can be new projects begun now that have long-term potential. You may not yet know where you’re headed with them, but you’re certainly enthusiastic about beginning anew. You experience a powerful intiative at this time in your life.
Expanding your horizons through higher learning or travel might also figure strongly. This is a time for aligning your behavior with what you believe is right. You are taking more “me” time, which is in fact long overdue.
Because Jupiter is the natural ruler of your solar twelfth house, your new beginnings can very much tie in with putting something behind you or bringing a long-standing problem or project to a close.
This transit comes at the same time as a Saturn transit to this sector (for the most part), so that there may be some restrictions or buckling down involved with these areas of life as well. There is generally good energy for bringing more structure and simplicity to your material world. This influence can help you to actualize dreams, as Jupiter and Saturn working together can help bring plans to life. How you handle your money can affect your outlook very strongly during this period.
You are seeking out a new beginning – a fresh start, of sorts – and your desire to do right is especially strong. Work or projects that you have been working on in private or behind the scenes may now begin to pay off. There is less focus on serving and helping others now, perhaps because this is no longer as necessary (for example, a child can go off to college, or even the end of a relationship that took up a lot of your energy and resources, from which you are now enjoying some level of freedom), and now you can put some of your personal interests on the front burner.
You won’t feel like sitting around during this period of your life. You are hungry for new experiences. Everyday stresses that may have frustrated you in the past now seem almost inconsequential, as your vision is lifted above the mundane. As such, your ability to manage stress and pressure increases. You are more tolerant in your attitude towards others, and you’re considerably more confident about expressing the playful, creative, and fun side to your personality.
Boosters occur this year that help all of these things along. One such supportive transit occurs from February to October, and it relates to how you’re communicating and connecting. It’s a time of increased personal meaning and purpose, particularly through your projects, studies, and contacts. Another booster happens from April to November, and it ramps up your ambition, sense of personal power and effectiveness, and desire to make improvements. It’s a powerful time for making positive lifestyle changes, for friendships and connections, and for expressing yourself more confidently. Personal initiative is strong. It’s an intense period for bettering yourself. You may be working on healing any problems with presenting yourself confidently or self-image issues.
Potential problems: Weight gain, pompous behavior, restlessness, over-confidence, wastefulness, and excesses, in general, are potential pitfalls when the energies of Jupiter are taken too far. See to it that these things don’t ruin an otherwise excellent period. As well, in your desire to start over, watch that you don’t blind yourself to certain essentials and responsibilities.
There might also be times when others can feel threatened by your newfound displays of freedom and independence, when your personal desires are greater than your means, or when you have troubles with self-discipline, budgets, and limits.
Otherwise, this can be a time of opportunity. You might choose to pursue a new channel for self-expression or mental interest with great passion. There can be a strong sense of release and freedom from previously limiting, rigid, or stifling conditions. Because this transit occurs concurrently with a Saturn transit, outlined in the Areas of Contraction section in the full 2020 Horoscope Preview for Capricorn, you are less likely to waste your time or pass over the opportunities that emerge. You are especially productive, ambitious, and effective.
The most favorable periods for these matters occur while Jupiter is in direct motion in your solar eleventh house, from December 2nd, 2019, to May 13th, 2020, and then from September 13th, 2020, to December 18th, 2020.
From December 2nd, 2019, to December 19, 2020, your spiritual world, compassion, private life, and tolerance expand and grow. This is a period for looking within and learning of your inner strength. It’s also a time for appreciating some level of solitude.
Matters from the past are magnified in your life now. You tend to sort through the attitudes that serve you well, and the behaviors that need to go in order for you to grow and improve – a cycle that started in December 2019 and runs until mid-December of 2020 when Jupiter will enter your sign and you are ready to share yourself more fully with the world.
This is generally a warm, protective cycle, although with Jupiter in the background in your chart, there may be some sense that you are not truly living or experiencing your life to the fullest, or that your joy in life is not as obvious to others. With so very much activity in the sector of your chart that rules private matters, anonymity, healing, and endings, this is one of the more withdrawn, reflective periods of your life. You may be exploring the hidden elements of life or developing your spirituality now.
You may also be especially compassionate and empathetic. Events occurring now tend to expand your inner world and your innate compassion, warmth, or inner eye. This can be a powerful period for volunteer work, or for work done behind the scenes, in private, or in the helping professions. It’s also a time when friendships are a little more unusual or made through unusual places. There can be hidden or illusive elements to new friendships formed during this cycle.
Potential challenges: Escapism. You might often be tempted to escape your everyday responsibilities and challenges, and should avoid reliance on drugs, drinking, or other “glamorous” forms of escape.
Jupiter’s influence is generally considered positive, and it is, ultimately. However, it acts to magnify the area of the chart that it affects, and at times it can be uncomfortable if you are having difficulties in this area. In your case, if you are lonely or if you feel helpless, and if you have troubles facing your past, then this influence can heighten these issues. Ultimately, it’s for the good. The cosmos asks you now to surrender some of your attachments and to surrender to the unknown. Releasing control is necessary. Building your faith is the work you are doing now. While your tendency is to play a supportive role to others, if taken too far, you will need to draw some boundaries when it comes to your energy and time. There can be some strains on mental and physical health.
There is stronger joy in being of service to others, but do be careful that you take care of yourself as well.
Connecting with people from your past can figure strongly, or you can be quite focused on past friendships. Sometimes with this influence, a previous enemy or person you didn’t like now becomes a friend.
For the most part, you are likely to feel emotionally secure and supported during this cycle. Your perceptions heighten. Your ability to make sacrifices for others increases, and you can build your confidence in yourself as you help and support others.
Interestingly, another influence on the very same areas of life, outlined in the Areas of Contraction section in the full 2020 Horoscope Preview, is a contracting influence. This means that you have the chance to reach a wonderful balance. These contrasting influences don’t cancel one another out — they co-exist and point to some oscillation, but also the chance to make something significant of these areas of life. With self-discipline, you find more joy and confidence.
Two booster influences help you make the most of this cycle. The first runs from February to October and is excellent for improving your psychic sensitivity, powers of perception, and understanding of what you truly want and value. It can be a time of increased generosity and hospitality. A stronger interest in spirituality is possible. The second booster occurs from April to November, and is powerful for work done behind the scenes or in preparation for a project that you’re rolling out at a later date. You have all the power and willpower to put a problem behind you during this period!
The most favorable periods for these matters occur while Jupiter is in direct motion in your solar twelfth house, from December 2nd, 2019, to May 13th, 2020, and then from September 13th, 2020, to December 18th, 2020.
From December 2nd, 2019, to December 19, 2020, your connections to others, group associations, and friendships are set to expand and grow. It’s a pleasant, supportive transit that only comes around approximately every 12 years for approximately 12 months.
This is a time for feeling considerably more confident about the future, as well as confidence in your ability to set plans in motion that will allow you to accomplish some of your most cherished hopes and dreams.
It’s a time when you are filled with ideas about the future. You are planting seeds, so to speak, aiming to get started on projects that will reap rewards in the future. While this can be exciting, try not to take on more than you can handle. Your vision is quite optimistic, and you might overestimate what you are capable of doing down the road! However, one or two projects can be inspiring and also quite innovative.
With more contact with others, whether it’s about an expanded in-person group of connections or online, you are sure to come up with new ideas and to be inspired. Others can point you in new directions. There can be a cause that you work towards enthusiastically. A new communications project can excite you and bring you into contact with interesting, helpful people. Business income should increase.
This can be a time of budding friendships and/or group involvement. New people may come into your life and seek out your friendship, or existing friendships may be refreshed or enhanced. Opportunities to advance or for new learning experiences can come through associates, friendships, and networking. For many, this can be a strong time for an internet business.
People can be friendlier than usual to you, and you may benefit from group connections or networking. You are popular within groups, and circumstances have a way of turning in your favor. You can accomplish wonders with initiatives or causes that you believe in.
You’re in great shape for enjoying the fruits of your recent labor, promotion, and successes.
Potential challenges: Over-emphasis on activities that take you away from your practical responsibilities, too often.
However, for the most part, you are likely to take advantage of this period in your life in order to expand your social life and friends base as well as to dream up exciting new paths for the future. You’re in a particularly good position for connecting with friends and benefiting from networking and putting plans into motion with booster influences in 2020: One such boost occurs from February to October and is an inspired time for enjoying your social life and feeling a stronger purpose as a result of your interactions or new projects and plans. Another boost happens from April to November and is a time of increased ambition and drive for improving your life, making the connections you need or desire, and advancing toward your goals. It’s also a powerful time for taking the lead of a group, organizing, and starting up a new endeavor, especially an innovative one.
It’s interesting to note that these very areas of life where you can expect expansion are also subject to an influence that contracts and simplifies, outlined in thet section, Areas of Contraction, in the full Horoscope Preview for 2020 for Pisces. Rather than canceling each other out, these counteractive influences can help you achieve a fabulous balance. You may very well enjoy your newfound self-discipline or simplification in these life departments. There may be a practical spin on your friendships or social life this year.
The most favorable periods for these matters occur while Jupiter is in direct motion in your solar eleventh house, from December 2nd, 2019, to May 13th, 2020, and then from September 13th, 2020, to December 18th, 2020.
