Jupiter in Capricorn in 2020

Jupiter is the planet of wealth, abundance, and luck.  While he’s been touring his home sign of Sagittarius this past year, our awareness expanded and idealism for our lives soared.  But on December 2, 2019 big daddy moves into Capricorn and will stay there until December 18, 2020.  All those soaring skyscrapers we built in 2019 are now getting inspected for structural soundness.  It’s time for optimism to face reality.

Just The Facts, Ma’am

Capricorn is known for being serious.  They like stability, practicality, and building things that will last.  While Sagittarius is the teenager on gap year touring the world and staying in hostels, Capricorn is their first job with real responsibilities.

Jupiter in Capricorn feels restricted.  He follows through with his sense of duty and his ethics are sound.  He knows the rules and is ready to show he has the discipline to take on real power versus just puffing his chest like a peacock.  The downside is he can be governed by fear vs. optimism.  He’s trimming the fat and is conservative overall.  

On a positive side, Jupiter in Capricorn teaches us how to be resourceful.  He learns that limits and scarcity teach us how to pair down and focus on what we truly value.  While we may have had the funds to splurge on what tickled our fancy while he toured Sagittarius, we now pause at the checkout line and ask, “Does help me attain my overall big goal?”

Historical Precedence

The last time Jupiter was in Capricorn was in 2008 .  The S&P remained steady until Pluto entered Capricorn in November 2008 when it began to take a turn.  This time, Pluto is still there and Jupiter is catching up. Themes of 2008 will echo back through 2020.  For those of us living in the United States, this transit is hitting our 2nd house of money.  An economic correction is settling in.  Many astrologers and economists expect stocks to fall during this time with potential government intervention. 

Slow, But Steady

The month of December will feel a shift, but it will be slow.  Jupiter will still have dignity by touring through his decan and his term, but by January 29th the tone will become heavier.  Having Jupiter in his term helps him function on a higher ethical frequency where he can be true to his nature.  Bills are due, leadership is more demanding, and you are expected to face the music.  It is a time to step into your self-determination, take stock in your resources, and elevate your professionalism.

While this transit is more of a collective and societal shift, some signs will feel it more than others on a personal level.  Those with prominent cardinal planets, (Aries, Cancer, Libras and Capricorn) will definitely feel this transition.  Those with prominent Capricorn in their charts will actually feel this shift as a sense of relief.
