Mars’ influence in Capricorn this February 2020

Key transformational influences in Capricorn from 2018-2020 signal a period of tension and radical change related to your purpose, and the ways you experience success, leadership and integrity.

This overall period is challenging to embody your personal values in all areas of life.

Mars in Capricorn this February

Between Feb 16 – Mar 30, Mars brings its focus and drive to the sign of Capricorn, while also activating the longer-term transformational energies already present in this part of the zodiac.

As Capricorn energy represents authority figures, the influence of Mars can bring conflicts with anyone in your life from whom you seek (or are ‘expected’ to seek) approval. Note that Mars brings the potential to elevate tensions now, as it gives a voice to repressed desires and emotions.

Mars in Capricorn brings a strong work-ethic and strategic thinking which can be helpful for organizing your life around your long-term goals. At the same time, it is important to consider whether these goals, as well as the way in which they are being pursued, truly aligns to your purpose and core values.

Mars doesn’t meet up with Jupiter, Pluto or Saturn, the outer planet ‘titans’ , until March, but the influence of its co-presence in Capricorn, in combination with potentially restless and/or frustrating Mercury Retrograde vibes, will be gradually building as of mid-February. These energies bring potential developments connected with the recent Solar Eclipse in Capricorn and Lunar Eclipse in Cancer.


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.
