CapricornDecember 22 - January 19
We have an explosive weekend coming up Skymates! Capricorn, we’re about to collectively experience the meeting of Mars (planet of action) and Jupiter (planet of expansion), in the powerful sign of Aries. The fiery energy of this conjunction will begin to arise in the days before and continue to reverberate for days after – initiating us into a space of vitality, new paths and empowerment. Capricorn, before it meets Mars, Venus first comes into a tension with Pluto in your sign. This can bring up hidden dynamics, fears or obstacles that arise from self-limiting beliefs. Notice any tensions and triggers that arise – and try your best to objectively follow them back to their root within your psyche. You’re ready to evolve into the highest version of yourself. This conjunction, as well as the upcoming New Moon support you in this glow up.
Key Themes: Self-expression, home, routine, self-care.
Capricorn, the month of May will be a time of creativity, play and romance. As the month begins, you’ll still be feeling the effects of the Partial Solar Eclipse New Moon in Taurus on April 30th. Be present with all of the changes that are emerging within your self-expression.
On May 2nd, Venus enters Aries, activating your area of home and family until the 28th. It’ll be a nice time to bring more balance, beauty, harmony, and peace into your home, domestic life, and the relationship with your family members. Take good care of yourself, be with your loved ones, and make more space for rest.
On May 10th, Mercury goes retrograde in Gemini until June 3rd, and it starts its backwards journey in your area of routine and health. It may become impossible for you to organize your schedule and follow it out. So, it’s not the best time to plan important meetings. Take this time to feel into how you’d like to rearrange your time in a way that’s healthier for you. On the 22nd, Mercury retrogrades back into Taurus, bringing themes from the previous Eclipse.
Also on May 10th, Jupiter starts a new cycle as it enters Aries until October 28th, joining Venus in activating your area of ancestry and foundations. You’ll have more clarity when it comes to the patterns that keep you stuck. Jupiter, traditionally known as the great benefactor, offers you the opportunity to begin to take the steps to let go of these limitations and take up healthier habits.
On May 16th, the Full Moon Total Lunar Eclipse in Scorpio is happening at 12:14am EST, illuminating your area of friendships and community. Your need for a sense of belonging will be heightened. Move closer towards the people that see you, and accept you for who you are, and that embrace your changes and your complexities.
Gemini Season comes rolling in on the 20th, shining a light on your wellness practices until June 21st. As Mercury retrograde moves out of Gemini on the 22nd, it’ll be a great time to clean out the clutter and to activate all of the things you reviewed and reassessed concerning the kind of routines, practices and order you want more of in your life in order to create a healthier day-to-day.
On May 24th, Mars enters Aries, joining Jupiter in your area of home and family until July 4th. You’ll have more energy for your domestic needs and activities. So, if there’s something you’ve been meaning to repair or rearrange within your home, this is the perfect time.
On May 28th, Venus enters Taurus, joining Mercury in your area of creative expressions until July 17th. Venus will help you connect with something very intimate and very honest that you want to express. Allow yourself to connect with a craft or a practice through which you can allow this to come out into the world. Sing, dance, write, paint.
May comes to an end with the New Moon in Gemini on the 30th at 7:30am EST, helping you tap into the emotions that keep you from connecting with and resting within your natural rhythm. In order to walk to the beat of your own drum, you’ve first got to recognize its tempo.

Ruling Planet: Saturn, the Planet of Challenge
Where You’ll Find Them: Working their butt off, planning for retirement, stacking their money
What They Avoid: Laziness, procrastination, small talk
Capricorn, the 10th sign of the zodiac, is often the most hard-working and ambitious. In fact, Capricorn would benefit from not taking their selves or their lives as seriously they do — but that’s way easier said than done. They were born to be successful, and they feel a huge drive to surpass their own expectations and crush all of their goals. But unlike some super assertive signs, Capricorn isn’t extremely flashy when it comes to their determined nature. They keep it really low-key, only speaking when they feel like what they have to say improves upon the silence, and only laughing when they truly mean it. Capricorn keeps it real, even if it’s too real for the masses to handle, and that’s what makes them so special and unforgettable. The sarcastic and cynical Capricorn plays absolutely no games.
When you ask a Capricorn what they want to achieve, the list will be endless, and it will be extremely impressive. Capricorns thrive in positions of authority, such as being a business person, a lawyer, an entrepreneur, a principal or administrator, etc…They don’t do as well when it comes to taking orders from others, and that’s mostly because Capricorn does a much better job of calling the shots — they intuitively know what must be done to get the best possible results and they wouldn’t want to waste any time trying out other methods. Even if Capricorn works for someone else, they often become distinguished team members who are given leadership positions.
Having a Capricorn as a friend means that you have a constant shoulder to lean on. But don’t think that means cry on — Capricorn has little tolerance for people who feel sorry for themselves. Capricorn is the zodiac sign that experiences the most challenging experiences in their lifetime, but that also makes them the wisest, strongest and most mature of all the signs. Because Capricorn has such high standards for their own life journey, they know what it means to fight and to be a warrior, and they will love you in a tough-love manner to teach you to also stay strong amidst adversity.
As a lover, Capricorn has to constantly work on tearing down the walls they so carefully built. Capricorn must avoid letting their workaholic tendencies cause a rift in any relationship they do begin. Capricorn is best suited for a relationship where their partner agrees to let them pursue their passions and independent interests, and where they can feel motivated and inspired by their partner. They can’t be with someone who is unsure about their life direction or who holds them back from going after their ultimate goal. Still, Capricorn’s romantic lesson is to avoid trying to check off all the items of what an “ideal match” looks like, and to open up to the variety of possibilities that the Universe may present them with. Sometimes the high standards that Capricorn impose are more liberating than anything. Capricorn can shock their lover by loving them uninhibitedly, and without skepticism. It takes a very special kind of lover to see that side of Capricorn. It’s worth the patience and effort.
