The major astrological news this week is the shift of Jupiter into Capricorn, where it will stay for the next year.

Ethics and maturity are strong themes here and success comes from careful planning and research rather than from spontaneity.

Be prepared to work hard!

This energy is most likely to translate into worldly power and material success. Capricorn is the sign of success earned through hard work and steady progress within established structures. This is a powerful placement for manifesting dreams, combining Jupiter’s visionary seeking with Capricorn’s ability to climb even the highest mountain, one step at a time.

When Jupiter is in Capricorn, we make our own opportunities.

We trust the universe to provide but also take responsibility for creating our own reality. Jupiter’s blind faith is tempered by realism, discipline, and patience. Jupiter’s journey through Capricorn is likely to highlight the organizations which rule society, such as governments, as well as the structures we build in our own lives. Jupiter in Capricorn has a need for honesty and integrity, for high moral and ethical standards. Jupiter in Capricorn may call us all to account, especially in March and April 2020 when Jupiter meets feisty Mars (on 20 March) and then transformative Pluto (on 5 April).

Pluto is the planet of shadows and the shadow side of Jupiter in Capricorn may manifest as the rich getting richer, as those already in privileged positions seek to maintain and even expand their personal fortunes. Jupiter in Capricorn may bring a sense of entitlement and a love of high social status which exaggerates the divisions which already exist in society. Hidden conflicts may be brought to the surface and those whose voices have gone unheard may find the power to speak out, as Jupiter in Capricorn also brings confidence and determination to those who work to right social injustices and create a fairer world.

Ultimately the goal of Jupiter in Capricorn is soul growth.



Think about your professional image, your dignity, and your integrity. Present an accomplished face to the world, even if you’re shaking in your boots. Status and success come from making people believe that you’re a calm, cool head.




Take a wider, more philosophical view of your everyday niggles. How much do they really matter, in the greater scheme of things? Focus your energy now on life’s bigger questions and leave minor worries to sort themselves out.




This week’s energy is about understanding your own power. Spend time understanding which parts of your life you can control and where or instead where it’s necessary to simply go with the flow. Don’t waste time on battles you cannot possibly win.




Love is a key focus this week and Jupiter’s arrival in your romance zone is fantastic news if you’re looking for a long-term partner. In an established relationship, work together on your shared goals. As a team, you can make a real difference.




You can change life for the better by simply deciding to do things a different way. Break out of any stifling routines or limiting self-beliefs. You have the power to evolve and to become whoever you want to be.




A creative project should bring great joy this week and will set you off thinking about your own under-used creative talents. If you’ve ever wanted to set up your own arts or craft business, this would be an excellent time to take the plunge.




With Jupiter now in your family zone, it’s the ideal time to plan for a baby or to adopt a new pet. You may need more space, so think about moving or extending your existing home. These are big, life-changing plans – but so exciting!




You have so much knowledge to share – don’t keep it to yourself! Writing, publishing, teaching and mentoring are all brilliant opportunities at this time, which should bring personal success as well as a great deal of satisfaction.




Jupiter is now in your money zone! Since this is the planet of abundance, that sounds pretty promising. Focus on ways to expand your income… and think big! There is SO much potential around you at this time.




Your mood should lift considerably now that Jupiter is in your own sign, and your enthusiasm is catching. Spend time this week reaching out to those who are feeling depressed, isolated or lonely. You know that feeling – and you can help.




Lots of quiet time is essential now, so try to find time for meditation, visualization, prayer or ritual. It would be an ideal week to go on a spiritual retreat or to spend time in nature, just absorbing the cosmic energies and recharging yourself.




Long-range planning is a good idea now, especially as your confidence is growing. Think about where you want to be in ten years, five years, one year and six months. Crucially, plan out the steps to get there too!
