Have you ever heard people refer to “Capricorn Season” but not understood what it means?

Well, Capricorn season starts when the sun moves into Capricorn and a number of other personal planets join it during the month-long transit of the sun through Capricorn.

Capricorn is an earth sign and brings a hard-working, disciplined and responsible energy but it can also manifest in a rigid and judgemental energy.

Mantra for Capricorn Season: 

Step by step I can reach my dreams and master my domain. 

Best things to focus on during Capricorn Season:

It’s time to solidify those visions you had in Sagittarius season and do something with them – it’s the perfect time to set goals and new years resolutions. But make sure that you break them down into smaller manageable steps and tasks!

Personal Planets in Capricorn:

Mercury – 14th December- 3rd January

Mercury will move into Capricorn on the 14th of December and will stay there for approximately 3 weeks.

⁠The best way to harness the Mercury in Capricorn energy is to focus on being responsible and masterful with your communications in order to express your sacred message.

Venus – 6th November – 7th March

Venus has been in Capricorn since the 6th of November and will be there for quite some time due to Venus’s retrograde.

Venus in Capricorn makes me think of being hard-working, disciplined, and masterful in order to be receptive to money. However during the retrograde (19th December until 28th January 2022) perhaps we need to rethink this and instead be anti-capricornesque in how we attract abundance to us – what if we just relaxed and released and let it come to us?

Where is Capricorn in your chart?

To find Capricorn in your chart you will first need to create a chart at astro.com if you don’t have it already.

Then you will want to look around the edge of the chart and find the Capricorn Glyph.

Then look at which house(s) Capricorn spans in your chart to see which areas of your life Capricorn season is likely to play out in.

In my chart below you can see that Capricorn spans my 4th & 5th house and my Mars is also natally in Capricorn in the 4th house (working from home is totally my jam!).

In the first part of Capricorn season, it’s important for me to channel energy into communications with my family over the Christmas period and then I get to channel it more creatively and pleasurably as we move into the new year.⁠

I’ll be honest Capricorn season is probably my least favorite in many ways – don’t get me wrong it’s when I take long holidays with my family but my inner Ruler/Workaholic is just itching to get back to my goals and get the new year started! I’m hoping Venus retrograde might help me with this obsession a bit! My family is also quite fiery – hello Mars in Capricorn in the 4th House – so it’s not always the easiest time emotionally for me.
