Your 1st house is where the power is this year, Capricorn. You are personally more independent, self-willed and self-motivated. And though you are enjoying all the pleasures of the senses, you are not likely to gain too much weight. It looks like you binge, then diet, binge, then diet – and so forth and so on. A great year for getting the body and image in shape.
Jupiter is in your sign now, and you are in a prosperity period. This will get even stronger as the year progresses. More on this later.
Now that Uranus has left your 4th house for good (and won’t return for approximately eighty-four years) things at home, and the emotional life in general, are much calmer. Uranus is now in your 5th house for the next seven or so years, and those of you involved in the creative arts or entertainment are having an exciting time. Rarely have you been this original and innovative. You’re not capable of copying anyone. Your work is original. More patience will be needed with children and children figures in your life, though – they seem unusually rebellious and difficult to handle. More on this later.
Four lunar eclipses this year (twice as many as usual) shake up the love life and test current relationships. More details below.
Mars will spend over six months in your 4th house of home and family, from June 28 onwards (an unusually long time for Mars to be in a house). This can temporarily ignite passions in the home and family. However it is a very good transit for doing major renovations or repairs to the home. Some of you might want to build a house during that period. More on this later.
Capricorns are always ambitious but the year ahead is not a very strong career year. It’s more about preparation for future career pushes. All the long-term planets are below the horizon of your chart – on the night side. So the activities of night are more interesting than the activities of day. Details to come.
Your most important areas of interest this year are the body and image; finance (from March 23 to July 1 and from December 18 onwards); communication and intellectual interests; home and family (from June 28 onwards); and children, fun and creativity.
Your paths of greatest fulfilment this year are the body and image (until December 20); finance (after December 20); love, romance and social activities (until May 6); and sex, personal transformation and occult studies (from May 6 onwards).
(Please note that this is an astrological perspective on health and not a medical one. In days of yore there was no difference, both these perspectives were identical. Now there could be quite a difference. For a medical perspective, please consult your doctor or health practitioner.)
Health should be good this year. Usually Saturn in someone’s sign – which you’ve had for two years now – is not a great health signal. But because Saturn is a friendly planet to you – the ruler of the Horoscope – you are comfortable with his presence. There are no long-term planets in stressful alignment with you this year, and your 6th house of health is basically empty – only short-term planets will move through there. These are all positives for health. You need not focus much here as there is nothing wrong. You tend to be disease resistant. Sure, there will be periods in the year where health and energy are less easy than usual. These are only temporary, caused by the planetary transits, not trends for the year ahead. When the stressful transits pass your normal health and energy return.
Good though your health is you can make it even better. Give more attention to the following – the vulnerable areas of your Horoscope (the reflex points are shown in the chart below):
Important foot reflexology points for the year ahead
Try to massage all of the foot on a regular basis – the top of the foot as well as the bottom – but pay extra attention to the points highlighted on the chart. When you massage, be aware of ‘sore spots’ as these need special attention. It’s also a good idea to massage the ankles and below them.
- The spine, knees, teeth, skin and overall skeletal alignment are always important areas for you, Capricorn. Regular back and knee massage should be part of your regular health regime. Regular visits to a chiropractor or osteopath would also be a good idea. It is very important to keep the vertebrae in right alignment. Good posture is more important for you than for other signs, and so I like therapies such as Alexander Technique, yoga and Pilates. All of these help the posture. Therapies such as Rolfing or Feldenkrais are also good for the spine. Good dental hygiene is always important, and you should give the knees more support when exercising.
- The lungs, arms, shoulders and respiratory system. These also are always important for Capricorn as Mercury, your health planet, rules these areas. Arms and shoulders should be regularly massaged. Tension tends to collect in the shoulders and needs to be released.
A lunar eclipse on November 30 occurs in your 6th house of health, showing that you’ll be making important changes to the health regime after that date. Sometimes such an eclipse shows a health scare, but since health is good this year, it is not likely to be more than that.
With fast and often erratic Mercury as your health planet, your needs in health constantly change. Also you tend to respond better to certain therapies at different times. These are the short-term trends in health that are best covered in the monthly reports.
Normally when Jupiter is in someone’s 1st house – which is the situation this year – people tend to put on weight. Women of childbearing age tend to be more fertile as well. But Capricorns tend to slimness. They tend to be personally more ‘Spartan’. This tendency is even stronger this year as both Pluto and Saturn are also in your sign. So you might put on some pounds (this comes from enjoying the good life) but then you’ll diet to lose them. This, as we mentioned earlier, is a constant see-saw this year.
Pregnancies for women of childbearing age seem complicated.
With so many planets in your 1st house (it is easily the strongest in your Horoscope this year), self-esteem and self-confidence should be good. But you need to be careful of overdoing a good thing. The South Node of the Moon will also be in your 1st house – this denotes a feeling of deficiency. You might be overcompensating because of this. Real self-confidence is quiet and natural. It’s not bombastic. Saturn in your own sign counsels ‘shine but silently’ – keep a lower profile.
Home and Family
After seven years of instability in the home, family crises and perhaps even family break-ups, things are much calmer now Uranus has moved on – especially until June 28. Many of you have moved multiple times over the past seven years. Some have made multiple renovations to the home. You have kept upgrading the home the way you upgrade your software or computer. You are much calmer on the emotional level now too. Family members seem more stable as well.
Enjoy the calm while it lasts. On June 28 Mars will move into your 4th house and spice things up. This can bring conflicts with a parent or parent figure – you will have to work harder on your relationship. This parent figure is having some emotionally rough times. But other family members (or those who play that role in your life) also seem more passionate, angry perhaps, at the moment. They seem easily ‘triggered’ to anger. So, you will have to work harder on your relationship with them too.
Mars in the 4th house often signals construction or serious repairs happening to the home. The home should be safeguarded against fires too. Make sure the electrical wiring is safe and keep your smoke detectors in good working order. Keep sharp objects out of the reach of children too.
Mars in the 4th house would indicate that you’re installing athletic or exercise equipment in the home. The home is as much a gym as a home. Home security seems a priority as well. Probably security systems are being installed.
Moves are not likely this year, but renovations are very likely to happen.
Mars, your family planet, is a relatively fast-moving planet. This year he will move through six signs and houses of your chart, so there are many short-term family trends that depend on where Mars is and the kind of aspects he receives. These are best dealt with in the monthly reports.
Renovations and major repairs are best done in the latter half of the year – from June 28 onwards. If you’re repainting, redecorating or buying objects of beauty for the home – February 7 to March 5, September 6 to October 2 and December 15 onwards are good times.
A parent or parent figure has dramas in the home and emotional upsets this year, but a move is not likely. Siblings and sibling figures are spiritual and idealistic these days. Perhaps they are dealing with scandals and unpleasant revelations. A move is not likely either, but they can be redecorating from April 3 to August 7.
Children and children figures are more difficult to handle, as we mentioned earlier. They are more rebellious and self-willed. If you want them to do something, they need a good reason for it. You have to explain the ‘whys’ behind your request. They don’t respond well to authoritarianism. They can be living in different places for long periods of time but an actual move is not likely.
Grandchildren (if you have them), or those who play that role in your life, will have a stable family year. However, if they are of childbearing age, they are more fertile than usual.
Finance and Career
Ever since your financial planet, Uranus, moved into Taurus in March last year, you’ve been in a new financial era – and a prosperous one. Uranus is receiving beautiful aspects for most of the year; Jupiter, the planet of abundance, is making especially nice aspects. So earnings are increasing. This will be the case all year, but early in the year earnings come more easily than later in the year. Late in the year, as both Saturn and Jupiter move into Aquarius, there’s more work involved – but prosperity is still happening.
But the year ahead is not just about increased earnings. The quality of the earnings is much improved too. Your financial planet in your 5th house of fun, creativity and children (and for many more years to come) shows ‘happy money’ – money that is earned in happy, enjoyable ways. Money is also spent on happy things – on leisure and fun activities. You’re enjoying your wealth more.
The financial planet in the 5th house indicates that you spend more on your children or the children figures in your life. But they can also be a source of income – much depends on their age and stage in life. Older children can actually be financially supportive. Younger ones are a strong motivating force for earnings and often they have ideas that lead to profits – ‘out of the mouth of babes’.
The 5th house is a speculative kind of house, but Capricorns are not usually speculators. Further, the financial planet in conservative Taurus is not a very speculative transit. So you might indulge in a little bit of speculation, but you’re not likely to go overboard.
The financial planet in the 5th house signals a good affinity for the entertainment and music industries. Also for companies that cater to the youth market. Utilities and power companies are also interesting – especially those that are involved in technology.
Uranus as your financial planet tends to instability in finance. Earnings can be erratic. And this was the case over the past seven years. But here in the sign of Taurus earnings are less volatile, much more stable than they have been.
Saturn, the ruler of your Horoscope, will move into the money house from March 23 to July 1 – a brief flirtation – and then again, for the long term, on December 18. This too is a positive for finance – it shows focus and good fortune. You adopt the image of a money person and people see you that way. You’re taking more personal control over finances – not delegating things to others. On December 20, Jupiter also moves into your money house and will be there through most of 2021. Jupiter’s move into the 2nd house is a classic signal for prosperity. (Also keep in mind that Jupiter will be much stronger in Aquarius than he was in Capricorn – he is more comfortable there.)
This is not an especially strong career year. All the long-term planets are below the horizon – on the night side of the chart. So you are preparing for career success later on. It is a much stronger financial year than a career year. This is a year for building the psychological infrastructure, carrying out the behind-the-scenes activity, so necessary for career success.
Your career planet, Venus, is a fast-moving planet. So career issues will depend on where Venus is at any given time and the aspects she receives. These are short-term trends and are best dealt with in the monthly reports.
Love and Social Life
Your 7th house of love is not prominent this year. It is basically empty and only short-term planets will move through there. Also, as we’ve mentioned, most of the long-term planets are in the Eastern sector of self – of personal independence. The Western, social sector will strengthen as the year progresses, but only briefly. This is not a strong romantic or love year. Usually this shows contentment and stability in love. Singles tend to remain single, those who are married tend to remain married. But this year we have an unusual number of eclipses – six this year (two more than normal). Moreover, five of the six will impact on the love life. Two eclipses – one solar and one lunar – will actually occur in your 7th house. And since the Moon is your love planet, the four lunar eclipses this year also affect the love life. There will be many shakeups in the love life, many disruptions, many crises this year. The good news is that good relationships – those that are fundamentally sound – will survive. It is the flawed ones that are likely to dissolve.
Often these love testings are not happening because of the relationship per se, but because of personal dramas in the life of the beloved or that of friends. Love is a rocky ride this year. Fasten your seat belts.
The Moon is the fastest of all the planets. Where the other fast-moving planets need a year to move through your entire chart, the Moon will do so every month. So there are many short-term – very short-term – trends in love that can only be covered in the monthly reports.
In general, you have stronger social magnetism when the Moon is waxing (growing) than when she is waning (getting smaller). The waxing Moon increases your enthusiasm for love as well. The New and Full Moons tend to be strong love days (if the aspects are good). Also the Moon’s perigee (when she is at her closest distance to earth) will increase social magnetism and energy.
With the Moon as your love planet, mood is everything in love. You (and the people you attract) can be very moody about it. In a good mood, love is magical and perfect; in a bad mood love can turn to hate. It is vital to keep your moods positive and constructive.
The strength in your Eastern sector of self makes you more independent – a good thing. However, in love independence is not that good. You might feel that you will do whatever you want, regardless of the feelings of your partner. So while independence is a good thing, avoid disrespecting others.
For the past two years your ruling planet Saturn has been in your own sign and this remains the case for much of the year ahead. Thus you are more of a Capricorn than usual. All the Capricorn strengths and weaknesses are greatly magnified. Thus your business and management ability is at all-time highs. (This is a very good position for business.) But – and we have written of this in previous years’ reports – you can come across as too cold, too aloof, too bossy to others. You might not even realize that you’re doing it. It just comes out. This can cause problems in love. So, as was advised in previous reports, make it a project to send love and warmth to others. It will take conscious practice.
Love might be complicated, but the overall social life is very good. You attract friends. Opportunities for friendship seek you out. They will find you with little effort on your part. Just go about your daily business.
Love affairs are also likely for singles. But these are just entertainment – they don’t seem to lead anywhere.
Capricorns are down-to-earth, practical people. They are not known for their spirituality. They feel that ‘duty’ and ‘responsibility’ on the earthly plane is the highest form of spirituality. (They have a point here.) But of late, over the past few years, spirituality has been more important. In 2016 and 2017 Saturn was in your spiritual 12th house, indicating a great focus here, while in 2019 Jupiter, your spiritual planet, spent the year in your 12th house, showing even more interest and great interior growth. This year, Jupiter is in your own sign. So much of what has been learned recently is ‘showing’ – it is more manifest. The lessons are being applied to the physical body. You have more power over it. You are seeing how it can be moulded and shaped by spiritual means. People are seeing you as more spiritual.
Your spiritual planet in your own sign points to a practical kind of spirituality. It has to work in the world – improve your life and circumstances. Often it would indicate a liking for traditional orthodox religion. Capricorns like this anyway. They like the rules, regulations, rites, rituals, pomp and ceremony of traditional religion. This year even more so. This would be a good year to explore the mystical side of your native religion. (Every religion has its mystical side.)
Neptune has been in your 3rd house for many years now. This shows a spiritualization – a refinement – of the intellect and thought process. Your taste in reading is becoming ever more refined. You now favour spiritual types of books and magazines. You are more attracted to spiritual lectures, courses and seminars. Just plain everyday reading is not very alluring.
Your spiritual planet Jupiter will move into Aquarius, your 2nd house, on December 20. This strengthens Jupiter’s influence. He is much stronger in Aquarius than in Capricorn (his ‘fall’). This transit also favours a practical spirituality. You will be developing your financial intuition – and it will be a lot stronger. This will go on well into next year too. Financial guidance will come in dreams or through psychics, tarot readers, spiritual channels or ministers. This transit also favours astrology – especially its esoteric side. It is a valid spiritual path.
