Capricorn

Capricorn

When the moon is in the Seventh House
And Jupiter aligns with Mars
Then peace will guide the planets
And love will steer the stars

Lucky you, Capricorn. Because, guess what? The Moon IS in your 7th house as the Now Age of Aquarius begins! However, Jupiter won’t align with Mars. It will however meet with ruler Saturn in your 2nd of money, assets and self-worth on the day the Sun arrives in your 1st. How living in the Now Age of Aquarius is that? Your birthday is when the Now Age is cosmically underway.

First, we are in mutable weather with the Sun, Mercury, Venus and Juno in your oh-so-mysterious 12th. Neptune and Ceres in Pisces. Plus, the North Node in Gemini and Vesta in Virgo. And mutable eclipse weather too. You’ve a total solar eclipse in your 12th on the 14th. The day when Mercury will oppose the North Node in Gemini. This is a karmic eclipse for many and will take us back to 2002 – or even further in 19-year cycles.

Remember – ‘mutable’ means changing. So, what emerges or what you hear under this eclipse is going to change. Eclipses conceal or cover-up. When we have a total eclipse the cover-up is just that. We are totally in the dark about something. And in your 12th – the black out could be the supermassive black hole kind. In other words, nothing not even a clue is escaping.

First, check your chart for any factors at 23 degrees. Especially in your 12th house but also in any of the other mutable signs – Gemini, Virgo and Pisces. If you are unsure then one of our knowledgeable astrologers can help you. If you have chart factors at 23 degrees of ANY sign (including your own), then this eclipse will impact you in a personal way on some level. Even if this involves people or events at a distance.

With the Nodes and also the heavy planetary line up in your 12th, this eclipse conceals something to do with your past or people from your past. Don’t forget this includes past lives. Yes, this is your house of psychic ability. But signals may be a little scrambled now. I am not saying your intuition is not correct. But it may not be infallible. So, by all means pay close attention to any messages you pick up. But watch and wait for clarification. You will get this but it may take time to emerge.

Visitations from the past – and that includes again, loved ones or relatives who have passed on or over, could feature. These could come via signs, symbols, dreams, a song on the radio or that feeling you are no longer alone in a room when you are. If someone alive returns now, use caution. They could have an agenda they are not yet revealing. This is by no means a given but again, if you wait you have nothing to lose but your time.

Your 12th is about hidden exits. This is your house of escapism. Watch your intake of alcohol or drugs (prescribed or otherwise), food or even binge watching. Ask yourself what is it you are trying to escape or avoid under this eclipse? It could be as simple as uncomfortable feelings or something you would rather not look at. Is it loneliness you want to escape? The truth may not be obvious under this eclipse.

This is also your house of hidden enemies. The ones we simply cannot see. Usually because they come disguised as friends. Yes, that includes that chocolate, bottle of wine, pizza, crisps, substance or even Netflix series we binge watch to self-soothe. But it can also include someone we think has our back too. What can’t be hidden by this eclipse? History and behaviour. History tells us what someone will do in the future. Behaviour or how someone acts tells us whether they will back up those promises. So, remember that now.

If the hidden enemy is within you and you identify it under this eclipse, be kind to yourself. It has been a means to protect yourself. But give yourself permission to feel those ‘uncomfortable’ feelings instead. And if you feel you need help, this is also your house of asking for it. So, please do.

Sun, sun, sun – here it comes!

Out of the shadows and back into the light, Capricorn. So many people may have dismissed the effects of ruler Saturn in your 1st with ‘Well, it’s your ruler’. That doesn’t mean you’ve not had your own share of challenges. Either on a soul level or else around partners. On December 17, Saturn finally exits your 1st, not to return for another 29 years! Jupiter will follow two days later on the 19th.

Just like everyone else, you may have been dealing with limitations, having to mine that deep fortitude and inner resources you’re known for, or had to work within restrictions since the end of 2017 when Saturn arrived. This peaked in January 2020 when you had the life-changing conjunction between Jupiter, Saturn, Pluto and Ceres. Since then, all of us but especially you, have had to adapt and work within restrictions – symbolised by Saturn’s rings.

However, so many of us are now emerging from this cycle with a new perspective on what really matters. This has also been due to Uranus’s presence in that other earth sign of Taurus. Along with those restrictions, it’s refined our value system. For you it’s shown you the clear difference between what you want and what you need. And now has you very firmly focussed on fulfilling the latter.

So now, take this forward into 2021 and the Now Age of Aquarius. It’s going to be about a new world where those new values matter. Two days after Saturn enters your 2nd, Jupiter follows. Now, check your chart again for any aspects at zero degrees of any sign but especially any in your 2nd house of Aquarius. This includes your ascendant or rising sign, descendant, IC or midheaven as well as your North Node. Again, if you need more insight, one of our astrologers can help you.

The 21st also brings us one of the most powerful solstice events of the decade. This day sees the Sun arrive in your sign. And it will shine on a birthday season like no other. Pluto is now the only slow- moving planet in your 1st. So, you will feel that energy lighten. But this is the day which also marks the ‘official’ start of the Now Age with the meeting of Jupiter and Saturn in your 2nd at zero degrees.

What do you believe you deserve, Capricorn? Go back to what I said about those values earlier. Because this is a new kind of material experience. How you make your bread may change. Or where you direct those resources. You may be looking for more than money as your take-out when it comes to what your work pays you. People may be seen now as your greatest assets and your best resource. Plus you will be more mindful of your own talents, skills, abilities and the love you have to share, than ever before. You will not undersell yourself. Or if you have been, this could mark the up-selling point.

The sharing economy may feature during this period. As could crowd-funding, co-operatives or contributing to something bigger. Your feeling of abundance may be linked to people. So, cultivate a connection-rich mindset now. And invest in who you know.

The Moon appears in your 7th house right on cue on the 30th. This is of course your house of lasting love and partnerships of all descriptions. When the full Moon is in this house, it shines it’s light on us. But from another person’s perspective. So, you get to see how someone sees you, loves you, values you. And perhaps this is what was hidden in that eclipse all along. That perspective.

Like most of us, you are probably happy to be bidding 2020 goodbye. The final day of the old year puts something into perspective for you as Venus in your 12th opposes the North Node in your 6th. This could be making peace with the past year. Or the past in general. Looking at what thoughts and ideas are actually good for you, and the way things actually were rather than how you would like to remember them, will enable you to shed negativity now and free you for the coming cycle. Cultivate an abundance mindset, Capricorn. And take this with you into 2021.

In a nutshell: Happy birthday, Capricorn! With a total eclipse in your mysterious 12th take it there’s something about your new cycle you’re still in the dark about. What’s obvious is the start of the Now Age of Aquarius. Your gift? Reconnecting to that feeling of abundance for 2021.
