CapricornDecember 22 - January 19
What are you ready to call in Capricorn? Over the next few days we’ll be experiencing Mars (planet of action) harmoniously connecting with Saturn (career, structures, physical manifestation). This can feel like full circle moments, new ideas and overcoming challenges – especially when it comes to making practical moves in the world. Because Saturn is your planetary ruler, this will be particularly powerful for you Capricorn. The Moon in Aquarius provides another clue, reminding us to get creative and think outside the norms. This could be a good time to hash out some plans, have a think about your goals, next steps, then solidify your intentions by writing them down. You’re supported and loved Capricorn, and so it will be.
New! KTZ Compatibility
Key themes: personal myths, nurturing and renewing spaces, following your dreams, healthy interpersonal dynamics.
October begins with Mercury going direct in the sign of Virgo. For the past 9 days or so you’ve had no choice but to hold space for wonder. You’ve been able to see where your personal story may be keeping you from your creative potential. Now, it’s time to unlock yourself from the narratives that hold you back.
On the 8th, Pluto also goes direct, in the sign of Capricorn, where it’s been for the past 14 years. During its retrograde, you got a chance to see how you show up in the world, and how much that’s in alignment with your inner truth. Pluto’s slow, so this realization isn’t something so evident, it happens at a very steady pace. When it turns direct, you get a chance to cultivate new ways of harnessing your inner power.
This month, the Full Moon will happen in Aries, on the 9th at 4:55pm EST. A light will be shining on your roots, inviting you to connect with the land beneath your feet. Acknowledge the parts of yourself that are in need of re-parenting, in need of a little bit more care, protection and passionate love and affirmation. Check in on what’s missing at home for you to be able to surrender to the kind of rest and retreat your inner child is in need of.
Mercury will re-enter Libra on the 10th, taking you back to the things you were experiencing or thinking about surrounding your career, long-term goals, and social status between August 26th and September 22nd. There are things that aren’t meant to make it with you to the top. Keep feeling though, and keep moving towards your dreams.
Saturn also goes direct this month on the 23rd in the sign of Aquarius. This is your ruling planet, so you’ll be feeling freer. It’ll be easier for you to act, make decisions and move forward. Things will start to ease up when it comes to your material security, so go ahead and work on strengthening your financial structures.
Also on the 23rd, Venus enters the sign of Scorpio, followed by the Sun, and on the 25th we welcome the second eclipse season of the year with a New Moon Partial Solar Eclipse in the sign of Scorpio. Something is shifting within certain friendships and communities. Dynamics and changing, and it may be time to leave the spaces that feel draining. With some you can be there for the hard conversations, but respect yourself when you know it’s time to take distance.
On the 28th, Jupiter retrograde will re-enter the sign of Pisces, bringing back some of the wisdom we began to tap into at the beginning of May. In your case, it has to do with being present within the details of your day. Instead of thinking of what you have to do next, put your focus and your energy into being there with every single thing you do, and everything that comes to meet you.
Mercury will join Venus and the Sun in Scorpio on the 29th, and you’ll be able to connect in the most intimate and healing levels with some new and old friends. But you’ll also be vulnerable to people that don’t have your best interest at heart, so stay vigilant.
On the 30th, Mars will go retrograde in Gemini for the next two and a half months, helping you get in touch with what you honestly want to put your energy into, and with how much energy you actually have to put into things. It’s great to have goals, but remember that rest can also figure into your list.

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.
