Jupiter will be entering Capricorn on the 2nd of December in 2019 and from there it will remain until December of 2020 which holds a lot of things for each of us. While not everyone takes the time to look into the things Capricorn has to offer, they should.

This transit will be one to remember as it will push us all to be more mature and really find proper footing. We will all be shooting for the stars but within reason rather than assuming, we are capable of things we clearly are not. When Jupiter is moving through Capricorn we all end up gaining new understandings and working to grow in more optimistic ways. 

In astrology, Jupiter is considered to be a King of the Gods. This planet is very tolerant and expansive for a number of reasons. It offers each of us hope and brings forth a lot of gratitude. When this planet’s energies meet up with those from the sign Capricorn itself things get a bit hectic but not in any bad way. 

Capricorn energies are usually quite focused and tend to revolve around things like spiritual awareness and proper visualization. The more time Jupiter spends in Capricorn the more clear our goals become and stronger we grow. We will begin to value ourselves more and work to be much more ethical overall. 

Cafe Astrology wrote as follows in regards to this transit:

We have a strong need for concrete results. Our attitude towards work and practical, realistic action is positive. Our attitudes and values concerning religion, moral conduct, education, and politics are rather conservative and traditional during this cycle. Our judgment is prudent and mature, but we may lack the imagination or risk-taking attitude that helps us to innovate at times. We need to learn to be more flexible and tolerant of weaknesses during this transit. We should also watch for an overly self-serving approach.

Jupiter is in its fall in the sign of Capricorn–in other words, it is not at its happiest, most expansive position in this Saturn-ruled sign.

Because Jupiter’s nature is extravagant, we must guard against “too much.” Jupiter’s zeal can supersede moderation at times. It can expand the more negative qualities of a sign, just as it can expand the positive traits. Its zeal and enthusiasm are well-intentioned, but it can blind us to our immoderate behaviors. In Capricorn, we can be materialistic and miserly. Especially as it aligns with Pluto in Capricorn during the course of its transit of the sign, we may be quite power-hungry or status-conscious during this period. These are things to watch for.

However, the higher vibration or expression of Jupiter seeks perspective. Jupiter’s perspective isn’t a detached, analytical, or detailed look at any given situation, but an overview–a look at the “big picture.” With Jupiter, ideally, we are able to rise above pettiness, mundane concerns, inconveniences, and the like.

Where Jupiter is currently transiting in your own chart is generally where you are inclined to find our joy at this stage in our development. This area of your life expands and improves in some manner. There is also a need for new tools to develop these areas of life. In order to develop, we need to pursue our goals with determination, ambition, responsibility, and common sense.

With Jupiter in Capricorn, we value achievement in the long term and we’re especially proud of ourselves when we’re taking responsibility for ourselves. We succeed through resourcefulness and reducing waste. We may very well get a window into areas where we have been limiting ourselves due to wasting our time, energy, and resources. Some form of streamlining is important at this time, particularly with Saturn’s transit of Capricorn taking place concurrently for most of the Jupiter in Capricorn transit.

Things might seem a bit stressful at first but from December of this year well into December of the coming year, things are going to be changing for the better. Use these energies to your advantage, you’re capable of a lot more than you might realize.
