Capricorn Season & The Winter Solstice: Embracing Your Potential!

WOW! This year’s potently charged Capricorn Season includes 2 Eclipses, conjunction activations with Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto, AND an epic renewal of the Saturn/Pluto cycle on Jan 12th, their first meetup in 37 years.

The Solar and Lunar Eclipses bring key energetic shifts that will set the tone for the coming 6-month period. They open the door to new possibilities and can bring us to dramatic, sometimes unexpected, turning points. December’s Solar Eclipse ushers in an energized, motivated vibe that can help you gain clarity on your overall purpose, take action towards expanding your horizons, and express yourself more authentically on the world stage.

Jupiter has been energizing the sign of Capricorn since Dec 2nd, inspiring ambition, and motivation to bring greater focus, structure and organization to the pursuit of your goals. Jupiter’s influence also increases your potential for reconnecting with a deep sense of self-respect and integrity, which may include walking away from ‘dead end’ situations.

The personal planet conjunctions to outer planets Saturn and Pluto, as well as January’s Saturn/Pluto conjunction bring advancement to a transformational journey which has been underway over the long-term, on both a personal and societal level. These stories have already been unfolding for a while, however there is an opportunity now to shift the balance of power which has prevailed up to this point.

The Sun’s shift into Capricorn aligns with the Winter Solstice, the longest night of the year in the Northern Hemisphere. The dark season is a vital component of the natural rhythm, for the quiet moments bring an opportunity to look within. Capricorn energy is precise and clear about what it wants, and this season is a wonderful time to reconnect with your sense of purpose, reflecting on what you want to cultivate for yourself over the coming year.

The natural world around us may appear to be still and lifeless, but we know there is a force of life deep within, containing the full potential of maturity; the full bounty of the harvest. Looking inward now, you may embrace the spark of your own inner light; the gifts you already have to share with the world and glimpses of unrealized potential.


Capricorn energy is expressed through your pursuit of respect and recognition in the world. This energy rules your ambitions and who you are as a leader, as well as the rewards that come with accomplishment. It rules your idea of success itself.

Capricorn vibes represent discernment, precision and integrity in action. This archetype lives to play the game and does so with remarkable patience and self-discipline. It’s also highly strategic, instinctively recognizing and seizing opportunities. Shadow expressions to be mindful of will include shrewdness, emotional detachment, a prohibitive emphasis on rules, and cynicism masked as realism.

In its highest vibrations, Capricorn energy represents bringing your personal gifts and ideals into the world through the role you play in your public life.
