This is a dynamically powerful entrance into 2020 for you, Capricorn! A big juju storm surge that you can surf so long as you remain calm and collected. The storied collision of planets in your sign, both now and in mid-November, presage a year of change like no other. This is a good time to remember not to fear it, but to embrace it, that stasis is an illusion, and that life itself is change. As Bob Dylan famously put it, way back, whoever is “not busy being born is busy dying.” Your ongoing identity crisis that has been active all last year comes to a head with the extremely potent Cancer Full Moon eclipse of January 10th, when many questions seek their answer, including partnership considerations, in part as significant reflections on your own evolutionary journey. Your artistic inspiration is strong, and your yearning for freedom of expression, which must yet be tempered by the practical considerations of your basic nature enhanced by the strong Saturn in your current astrology.

This is your time of the year, Capricorn, and you will probably find yourself busier than usual or at least busy envisioning new challenges and projects you want to accomplish in 2020. With the current line-up of planets in your sign, there is no lack of ambition to start the New Year. You might be feeling determined and ready to make some powerful reforms in order to bring desired upgrades into your reality in the coming months. The First Quarter Moon takes place in Aries on January 2nd, and could challenge you to find a more compromising attitude with family members or important people in your life. Mercury and Jupiter are conjunct in Capricorn on the same day and this should support progressive and optimistic dialogues and exchange with other. The ongoing eclipse cycle on the Capricorn/Cancer axis is pushing you to find greater acceptance, and teaching you to soften your hard edges. The first half of January is your opportunity to practice what you have learned in regard to relating, receptivity, and the importance of open and tolerant communication with others.
Mars enters Sagittarius on January 3rd and will be working behind the scenes for you this month. Mars represents the way we tend to process anger, assert ourselves, and experience conflicts. With Mars traveling in your soul sector this month, it would be an excellent time to get clear about your motivations and the way you express anger. Getting clear and honest about old wounds and frustrations that are still simmering will help you move forward. Be willing to clear the space, and cleanse yourself of old resentment. Connect honestly with your motivations as to not let them control you unconsciously. That way you can direct all of your energy on moving ahead instead of fighting old demons.
A Lunar Eclipse in Cancer takes place on January 10th, which brings an important reset in these matters of relating and receptivity. Relationships could be shifting as you adjust to demands being made by others at this time. You could feel polarized between your need for sovereignty, and a real desire to find common ground within partnerships and collaborations. Uranus in Taurus turns direct on the same day demanding innovative approaches to old conundrums.
January 10th to 14th serves up the ‘pièce de résistance’ of the month: the much talked-about Saturn-Pluto conjunction in Capricorn. The last time these two planets were together was in 1982 just to give you an idea of its relative rarity. For you, Capricorn, this is your impetuous to get really serious about the current structures in your life and pay attention to what terrain you are building on to begin the year. Saturn is often associated with maturity, responsibilities, discipline and the wisdom that comes from time and from limitations. Then, Pluto is often linked to powerful transformational periods, a time when what is obsolete in your life must be composted, and this includes what has grown stale, and must be surrendered, as past habit patterns fade away to make a place for new growth. Some things in your life may have run their course; the beginning of the year is an excellent time to acknowledge this and recognize the new territory you are heading into.
On January 13th, Venus enters Pisces, the sign of her exaltation. For Capricorns, this ingress will serve as a gentle balm on your communications, softening your exchange and supporting sound agreements with others. If there were challenges within your partnerships in the last month, Venus in Pisces will help sooth and restore peace.
On January 16th, communication planet Mercury leaves your sign and enters Aquarius. A few days later on January 20th the Sun follows suit. For Capricorns this signals a time when your attention is on money matters, assets, your worth, and also signals a period of assessments in regards to your financial situation. A New Moon in Aquarius takes place on January 24th, which is the perfect opportunity for you to plant seeds of intentions in regards to your finances. With the spurt in momentum of the New Year, and the growing realizations around your true assets, the time is ripe to find more autonomy and agency. You could be feeling an incredible urge to gain more autonomy financially so that the New Moon in Aquarius is your cue to delineate what that looks like for you.
With Jupiter, Saturn, Pluto and the eclipses happening in with the Sun in your sign, it’s an incredible time to be a Capricorn. You have a lot of power at your disposal but it has to be allocated wisely. Any stale paradigm you are enduring for the sake of habit will be very obvious at this time. You need a certain dose of courage to move through what wants to happen in your life, and you are very well aware that nothing is free in this world. Your stoicism is your ally; as a Capricorn you do not shy away from efforts and discipline. However, you will also require a good dose of faith and courage in 2020 if you are to birth to the relentless visions arising in your heart.

The Sun represents the Self, one's way of being in the world. It can represent, on different levels, both the ego and the higher Self or soul purpose. It rules Leo and is exalted in Aries. The Sun is the most important 'planet' in the chart and symbolizes one's will and sense of vitality. When the Sun is afflicted (poorly placed or poorly aspected) it could indicate problems with the father, or male role model. The Sun energizes your entire chart, and planets in close relationship to the Sun (by planetary aspect) are emphasized in your personality. If your Sun is prominent in your chart, you will exhibit great power to do and to be.
The Moon represents the personal self, the feelings and the unconscious. It is a reflection of the true self, represented by the Sun. The Moon also stands for security and instinctual or habitual patterns, as well as the ability to relate to others, and to be nurturing to others. The Moon rules Cancer and is exalted in Taurus. It is often contrasted with the Sun as the female receptive principle versus the masculine or positive principle. The Moon represents the feminine and nurturing part of oneself. In a male chart, the Moon represents the feminine within, or the 'anima' and also indicates the type of partner you will attract. The Moon also represents an attunement from the past, which operates at an instinctive or habitual level in your present life.
Mercury represents the mind and intellect, and rules Gemini, sign of duality also Virgo, and has its exaltation in Aquarius. Mercury is an airy planet, associated with all forms of communication and the in-flow and out-flow of intelligence. Its position indicates how your mental function will be expressed, and where techniques and skills are available to you.
Venus is the planet of love and relationship. Venus is in-taking, rather than out-going (as represented by Mars), and rules the signs Libra and Taurus. Venus has its exaltation in Pisces, and is associated with aesthetics, beauty, refinement and romance. Its position in the chart indicates the area in which the give and take of love, affection and sensual pleasure will be expressed.
Mars is the planet of outward activity and animal passion. It rules Aries and is exalted in Capricorn. This fiery planet is masculine in action, versus softer more receptive Venus. When strong in the chart it can indicate a volatile temper, and also great courage. Its position indicates how your personality will assert itself, and what modes of activity will stimulate your physical energies.
Jupiter is the planet of faith, positivism and optimism. It rules Sagittarius and is exalted in Cancer. Jupiter represents the principle of expansion, versus contraction (as represented by Saturn) and the aspirations of the higher self. Its position in the chart indicates how your faith will be expressed, and what modes of activity will stimulate self-confidence.
Saturn is the planet of limitation and contraction, and the trials of life experience. This includes disciplive, punctuality, and the conservation of material resources. Saturn rules Capricorn and is exalted in Libra, and is limited and material, versus unlimited faith (as represented by Jupiter). It indicates areas where the personality will be restricted by fears and lack of confidence, and also areas which are important to be worked on in this lifetime.
Uranus is the planet of freedom and revolutionary vision, the urge for change and the ability to visualize new possibilities. Uranus rules Aquarius, and is exalted in Scorpio. It is also associated with mental studies, electricity and astrology. Its position indicates the arena of originality and freedom from conventional thinking in your life.
Neptune represents the universal ocean of oneness with all beings. It is thus highly compassionate, also idealistic, imaginative and self login or even self undoing, and can be associated with drugs or media, as fantasy expressions. Neptune rules Pisces, and finds its exaltation in Cancer. Its position indicates where there may be confusion and also great creativity in poetic or musical fields. Neptune has been called the higher octave of Venus.
Pluto is a force for change that can be destructive in its power. Pluto rules Scorpio, and is exalted in Leo. Pluto is related to will, and intense passion, and has a reputation for ruthlessness. As god of the underworld Pluto brings the deepest compulsions into the light. Its position indicates areas of life that must ultimately become transformed as part of the soul's evolution.
Chiron is a small planet, or 'planetoid' that was only discovered in 1977, and which has already shown itself to be quite powerful in an individual's chart. Occupying an eccentric orbit between Saturn and Uranus, and named for the centaur physician of Greek myth who taught ancient wisdom to mankind, Chiron represents the archetype of the "Wounded Healer" and is associated with shamanism and going within to heal oneself. Its discovery is synchronous with the rise of the holistic health movement. Chiron's position in the chart reveals where one has been wounded, and where also there is the opportunity for discovering healing from within and sharing this discovery with other people, since from our wounds arises our compassion for the suffering of others. The position of Chiron, by house and sign, can also show where we have talent and access to ancient wisdom, as well as where we may depart from the mainstream in service to a higher practicality. Those with prominent Chiron are likely to be educators and spiritual healers.
As goddess of the harvest and the natural process of fertility and renewal, Ceres represents the process of nurturing and motherhood in an individual chart, and has been attributed to the sign Cancer as a co-ruler with the Moon, as well as to the signs of Taurus, Scorpio and Virgo.
The astrology of the asteroid Pallas indicates the creative use of the mental faculty in combination with ageless wisdom, and is also involved with the arts, especially the plastic arts such as sculpture and pottery, and with medicinal remedies.
The astrology of Juno indicates partnering energy of intimate relationships, as in the more modern issues of where the boundaries are with another person, how much sharing is appropriate, versus holding back, are there issues of bitterness and jealousy, or projected authority and control onto another person, and intimacy needs in general.
In the astrology of Vesta issues of sexuality and completeness unto oneself predominate. Possible associations are the woman (or man) who chooses celibacy, but as a nun or monk takes on a higher purpose than normal family life, also issues of sexuality and who is ultimately served in the process, self or other.
While the lower expression of Eris might manifest as the lust for struggle and violence, there is also a more positive manifestation in the most basic defense of one's rights in standing up to established power, by violence if necessary. By recognizing and coming to terms with this potentially violent factor in ourselves we can grow as humans and become more whole.
The astrology of Haumea seems to be related to love of the natural world and to the fecundity of natural process. This archetype thus signals profound connection to Nature, connection to Source, and a form of natural charisma.
The astrology of Makemake is related to love of the natural world and to the activism associated with defending the environment. This archetype thus signals a profound connection to nature that is quite similar to the archetype of Haumea, his fellow traveler in the Kuiper Belt, with the same astronomical designation and also named from the pantheon of indigenous gods and goddesses.
The Part of Fortune (from the Latin Pars Fortuna) is the only Arabian astrology part still commonly used in modern astrology. It indicates an area of life that is a fortunate one for the native. The house in which the Part of Fortune is placed indicates an area of your life which is likely to be a successful one for you; an area where the applications of your skill will bear fruit. Its is where you will find good luck and happiness.
The Nodes of the Moon indicate areas of life that are of special concern to you. Also referred to as the dragon's head, The North Node indicates your goals.

Aries people tend to be energetic, forceful and outgoing. They are good at getting things done, although they prefer starting to finishing. Like the energy of the first rush of spring, they move into the world in a headstrong, pioneering way. Aries people are likely to rush into things before reflecting, and may also be impatient or unwilling to sit back and allow events to mature.
Taureans revel in the pleasures of life. They crave the security and comfort of relaxing in the warmth of their home environment. They value the senses and the enjoyment of material things.

Leos can be quite determined and usually get their way when they really want to. They also possess great integrity, and are a natural leader.
Virgos love work, service to others and the gathering of the fruits of the material world, as symbolized by the harvest. They are also likely to be a good conversationalist, with wide-ranging knowledge and interesting ideas. They can be analytical and perhaps overly fond of detail, with perfectionist tendencies, and they may miss out on the big picture by concentrating on the micro. It also benefits them to learn the fine line between discrimination and criticism.
Libra is the sign of harmony and relationship. The Sun in Libra is at the time of the Equinox, when day equals night, and similarly Libra strives for balance between polarities. Librans are known for their good taste, elegance and charm. They are seekers of harmony and beauty.
Scorpio is the most intense sign of the Zodiac, and is associated with sexual activity and with the symbolism of death and rebirth. Their emotions run deep. Scorpios have great personal magnetism and great powers of persuasion or even the ability to coerce others.
Sagittarius is an optimistic, positive-thinking sign associated with the quest for freedom from all restriction as well as idealism, religion and philosophy. Sagittarians are direct and forthright, good-natured and affirmative in their outlook.
Capricorn people are ambitious and practical, and are likely to have an excellent sense of social responsibility. They also tend to be conscious of social mores, perhaps to the point of over-concern. Their natural caution allows them to advance slowly and steadily to the top.
Aquarians have a rebellious nature, and are eccentric, spontaneous and original. They are forward thinking and detached, and can seem conservative though they really are not very much so. They are scientifically minded and logical, and confident in manner.
Pisceans are friendly and likable, and yet can be very moody and introspective as well. Pisces is a watery sign, concerned with subtle emotions and secret mystical depths. Pisceans are not entirely at home in this world.
