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.
