Capricorn Monthly Horoscope

MONTH OF December

It’s your time to shine, Capricorn! In December, you start to emerge from a yearlong hibernation or off-the-grid escape, and it’s good to have you back. This month is THE most important of the entire year—and decade—for you. On December 2, expansive Jupiter will begin a yearlong visit to Capricorn, kicking off a new 12-year chapter of your life. Get ready to be shot out of the cosmic cannon after a 2019 that may have felt more meandering than many years. And with a pileup of planets visiting Capricorn all month (including Venus, Saturn, Pluto, the Sun and a solar eclipse), you can expect one of those eleventh-hour victories that Capricorns are famous for achieving. Don’t sleep on the Sea Goats, people—they’ll sneak up on you and win the race when nobody’s paying attention!

Better still? A deeper, more heart-centered version of you will rejoin the land of the living…even if you didn’t realize that you’d left! More aptly, we could call it the “land of the visible.” You’ve BEEN here, but you’ve been hanging out in a parallel dimension—what the ancient Greeks called Kairos (non-linear time). Normally, you obey the dictates of Chronos (linear time), which is another name for Saturn, your ruling planet.

Your sign is often cast as a cutthroat competitor, and it’s not a reputation entirely unearned. But since November 8, 2018, expansive Jupiter has been swimming through Sagittarius and your twelfth house of healing, escape and closure. Your internal life has been all-consuming, and at moments, you just didn’t have the energy to care about striving and status. Now you’ll reenter the game, albeit from a more soul-driven place.

You’ll still be hanging out in that flowy zone for a while. The Sun is in Sagittarius and your imaginative twelfth house until December 21. Are there problems, grudges or outworn relationship patterns that you want to leave behind in this decade? Now’s your chance! Before you set your sights completely on the future, deal with any lingering remnants from your recent past. Make amends, wrap up those projects that you don’t want hanging over your head, say your goodbyes and wish people well who don’t belong in your 2020 personal “org chart.”

You can make those kinds of decisions pretty swiftly on December 12, when the Gemini full moon beams into your sixth house of wellness and organization. These clarifying beams will reveal exactly who’s on Team Capricorn and who’s a weak or draining link. From a major Konmari-style decluttering to a cleanup of your eating habits to a total makeover of your administrative systems, you’re ready for some year-end streamlining! If you’ve been waiting for results of a medical checkup, you could get your new treatment plan under these moonbeams. If you’ve been hitting the holiday party open bar and passed hors d’oeuvres trays a little too hard lately, this wellness-focused full moon helps you rebalance.

Ready for your coming-out party? On December 15, you’ll achieve rockstar status when gutsy Jupiter in Capricorn forms a golden trine to liberated Uranus in your passionate and performative fifth house. All eyes will be on you—and two of them could belong to a sexy admirer. Strong attraction and potent feelings could ignite out of the blue. Have you been holding back from expressing how you feel? The Jupiter-Uranus trine brings those raw desires to the surface, and it will be impossible to hold back. Well, at least you got THAT out in the open, Capricorn. This is the kind of day when you spontaneously sign up for a striking makeover—the kind where you chop seven inches off your hair or dye it turquoise. And you know what? It might just work.

And then…it’s Capricorn season! On December 21, the Sun blazes into your sign for a month, kicking the bountiful Jupiter vibes into high gear. In fact, the Sun and Jupiter will make their once-a-year meetup on December 27, considered by some astrologers to be one of the luckiest and most confident days of the year. With these fearless luminaries both in YOUR sign, it’s an auspicious moment to push a personal project forward.

But right before that, something even bigger happens! On December 26, your dreams are catapulted by a Capricorn solar (new moon) eclipse. This one is an annular eclipse—also known as a “ring of fire” because of the flaming outline of the Sun behind the moon’s shadow. And the world will see YOUR halo under these otherworldly beams as one of your projects or ideas springs into the spotlight. (Maybe an “angel investor” is waiting in the wings to take it to proper heights?) Your hardworking sign likes accolades, provided you’ve earned them through hard work. Well, Cap, the dues you’ve paid could put you on center stage before the year closes out.

New Year’s Eve is yours to own as the Sun, chatty Mercury, visionary Jupiter, master planner Saturn AND transformational Pluto all gather in Capricorn. Talk about finishing the decade powerfully! With the moon in Pisces and your expressive third house, you’ll be the shining star of any party, with witty words and inspiring ideas to share. Capture the lightning-bolt downloads in your phone’s audio recorder app because they’ll strike between champagne sips and crudite bites. Kindred spirits are afoot, so get out and mingle among people who appreciate your mind but aren’t afraid to express their own equally original thoughts.

Then, count down to midnight because you’re moving into the most Capricorn-centric year of your life. In 2020, an unusual number of planets powwow in YOUR sign. You’ll own the new decade, so dare to be bold and embrace a more public or visible role. It’s time to show the world what you’re capable of, no hiding allowed!

LOVE & ROMANCE:

With charm magnet Venus in your sign through December 20—along with a stellar entourage that includes expansive Jupiter, solid Saturn and alchemical Pluto—you’ll be tapping into a bottomless well of charisma, allure and flirtatiousness. In your first house, the amorous planet helps you stand out from the crowd, so indulge that desire to dress up and be a bit more flamboyant than usual with your look. You’ll feel bold and unleashed and won’t be able to avoid turning heads wherever you roam. Attached? OWN your role as a power couple, and model positive action for others to emulate.

Meanwhile, passionate Mars is marching through Scorpio all month (November 19 to January 3), lighting up your social eleventh house. It’s a lively time in general, and if you’re single, sparks could fly with a previous platonic pal. The heart wants what it wants, but let your brain weigh in, too. Couples should emphasize the friendship aspect of your relationship to increase the fun AND alleviate any pressure that may be building during holiday season.

On December 20, Venus undergoes a sea change and sails into Aquarius and your second house of practical luxury. You’ll know exactly how to spend that holiday bonus—or the nuts you’ve been squirreling away all year—and hint, it won’t only be on presents for everyone else! Think quality over quantity when it comes to gift-giving, and remember: Stocking stuffers don’t have to be material objects. Cook someone a meal; treat them to a massage or another of your secret talents; make a charitable donation in their name. When you do go out or indulge, make sure you are loving every minute, bite and sip. ‘Tis the season to indulge the senses—fully—alone or with your favorite plus-one.

Key Dates:
December 11: Venus-Saturn meetup

You don’t have to go along with someone else’s agenda or timeline. Under this grounding alignment of the love planet and your celestial ruler, you can set boundaries that work for you or solidify a teetering union. If you’ve been taking your beloved for granted, correct that now with a declaration (or demonstration) of your gratitude!

MONEY & CAREER:

Step into your power, Capricorn! December marks a huge shift for you as the tides start flowing in your favor and clarity commences. On December 2, expansive Jupiter moves into your sign for the first time since 2008, staying until December 19, 2020. After an unfocused and dreamy 2019 (not necessarily a bad thing), you’re ready to zoom forward on a passion project or personal goal. Lucky Jupiter only visits your sign every 12 years, so this momentous cycle could shine the spotlight directly on you and your goals.

Ready to move in a totally new direction? Good. Not only is Jupiter joining structured Saturn (your ruler) and alchemical Pluto in Capricorn, but a powerful solar eclipse also occurs in your sign on December 26, followed by a merger between Jupiter and the confident Sun on the 27th. This decade truly ain’t over till it’s over. Take what you learned in contemplative 2019 and fearlessly apply your knowledge to what’s happening now. Jump-start the new decade by kicking in long-closed doors. The stars are aligned for you to reach out to friends and colleagues you haven’t contacted in a while. Use social media to rebuild your brand or boost your reach. Post that impromptu IG story and see who engages!

All this expansion could demand a new system or two. This will be illuminated by the December 12 Gemini full moon in your sixth house of organization and helpful people. Ready to upgrade the way you run your life? Those “cracks in the armor” will be revealed, but no worries. This is as good a time as any to refine your work to a spit-shine. Without being too hard on yourself, be ruthlessly honest about the ways in which you work and where you lose focus. Don’t be afraid to revamp your process. Change is good!

And hey, don’t forget to reach out to your network! With go-getter Mars in Scorpio and your collaborative eleventh house until January 3, it’s all about who you know this month. Spread the word with a catchy campaign, a video announcement or by co-hosting an event. Bonus points if, say, your pop-up shop party or trunk show donates funds to a worthwhile cause. Let the good karma flow!

Key Dates:
December 8: Sun-Neptune square

Take nothing at face value today. With hazy Neptune in your communication corner at odds with the Sun in your foggy twelfth house, you may not even understand what people are trying to say, let alone have any reason to believe they can live up to their promises. Smile and nod, but when they’re done with their double talk, get back to work you have some control over.

Love Days: 9, 13
Money Days: 20, 29
Luck Days: 18, 26
Off Days: 11, 15, 24
