Jupiter in Capricorn

Jupiter, the largest planet in our solar system, is associated with generosity, expansion, travel, higher education, religion, philosophy, and belief systems. Generally speaking, the area of your natal chart that transiting Jupiter is traveling through is more likely to see some benefits, gains, and good luck.

When is it happening?

On 2 December 2019, Jupiter will move from being in the sign of Sagittarius to Capricorn. Jupiter was very comfortable in the sign of Sagittarius as it is ruled by Jupiter. However, in Capricorn, Jupiter is said to be in fall, meaning Jupiter has trouble expressing itself in this sign.

Capricorn is ruled by Saturn, the planet associated with hard work, discipline, and austerity. You can see why Jupiter may feel a little confined in this sign. A Capricorn Jupiter is more level headed and down to earth, no grand schemes, or at least not without a lot of planning first. Jupiter will remain in Capricorn until 19 December 2020.

What does it mean?

Look for the astrological house/s that have Capricorn in your natal chart to discover what areas of your life may benefit from this Jupiter in Capricorn transit. Jupiter changes signs about every 13 months, and after this transit, will not be back in this part of your chart again for another 12 years.

If you don’t know where Capricorn is in your natal chart, I have a breakdown of what it means for all the astrology signs below (although it works best when you know your Ascendant sign).

An article I wrote a while ago when Jupiter was in Libra, demonstrates in more detail why knowing your natal chart details gives you so much more information than just knowing your star (Sun) sign.

As with all signs, Jupiter has its good and its not so good properties. Sometimes it comes down to how you look at the situation (Jupiter ruling philosophy). Sometimes, Jupiter can bring too much of a good thing or even inflate a bad situation because of its expanding nature.

Jupiter retrogrades about once a year for approximately 4 months. We tend to be re-evaluating things of a Jupiter nature during this time, such as our personal moral compass. Jupiter will be retrograde from 14 May 2020 (27° Cap 14′) to 13 September 2020 (17° Cap 24′).

All times given above are Central  Time (CT).
