Capricorn Season 2019 Horoscopes
As we close out one year, we start another: lighting up our homes for the holidays and welcoming in the year 2020—a new decade and, numerologically, a year for fresh beginnings. And there’s no better moment to get to work than right now. After all, from mid-December to mid-January, the sun is moving through industrious, goal-oriented, tradition-loving, pragmatic Capricorn.
When Is Capricorn Season?
From December 21 to January 20, the sun moves through the cardinal earth sign Capricorn, ruler of the tenth house and the realm of social status, authority, public reputation, career goals, and professional recognition.
Capricorn Characteristics and Capricorn Season
The earth sign is ruled by Saturn, the taskmaster planet associated with challenges, hard lessons, discipline, responsibility, rules, and regulations. That explains why Capricorn season plays host to the time of year when we feel compelled to clean up our acts and get down to serious business before New Year’s resolution time.
The grounded, family-oriented Goat has reverence for traditions (and, as a result, might be a bit old school or conservative in some ways). So, spending time with loved ones—perhaps baking Grandma’s sugar cookie recipe, singing carols Dad loved as a kid, making sure the next generation has seen It’s a Wonderful Life—is a priority, as well.
Given that Capricorns are practical, loyal, assiduous old souls who often seem to age backwards Benjamin Button-style, it makes perfect sense that Capricorn season is a time for allowing your heart and head to bring you closer to your big picture goals. It’s the ideal time to pinpoint and then begin a slow and steady climb to the peak of your very own mountain. Cap season sets a tone that’s fit for connecting with the past so that you can then identify, create, and revel in your ultimate future. Here’s what each sign should focus on to make the most of this promising, magical season. (Be sure to read your rising sign, too!)

Aries (March 21–April 19)
Being an Aries, you always have your eye on the prize. Thanks to the sun’s trip through your career zone, you’re ready to make a game changing plan to conquer those goals. Your path to progress and recognition might be a bit slower than you would ideally like but working alongside higher-ups and striving to be a team player can go far to supporting your big picture goals.
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
Let’s be honest, Taurus: You’re generally perfectly content to stick with your tried-and-true routines, especially during the holidays. But because Cap season will see the sun moving through your ninth house of adventure, you’ll be stirred to shake things up. Booking an exotic vacation or signing up for a class that allows you to advance your professional skills could be exactly what you needed to fulfill that burning need for change.
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
You could easily spend Cap season flitting from one holiday party to the next, or even setting one New Year’s resolution and then redirecting to a different goal. But because the sun will be in your eighth house of sexual intimacy—encouraging transformation, personal growth, and physical expression—you’ll be inspired to settle down a bit and deepen your relationship with a significant other. Focus on taking in some quiet, meaningful moments to yourself Gemini, in which you open your heart and mind could be game-changing.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
As a family-oriented person, you’re happy to spend time with all your loved ones—entertaining one another and cooking up comfort foods galore. But as the sun moves through your seventh house of partnership during Cap season, you’ll want to invest the most time and energy in your closest one-on-one bonds. This is the ideal season to work alongside your S.O. or BFF on a project that’s close to your heart, Cancer. Simply enjoying one another’s company, taking trips down memory lane, and telling inside jokes can be restorative for your heart.
Leo (July 23-August 22)
As a fixed sign, Leo is a creature of habit. And one of the habits you so adore is finding opportunities for playfulness. Thankfully, while the sun moves through your sixth house of wellness during Cap season, you’ll find even more joy in daily routines that bolster your wellbeing. You might gravitate to workouts that challenge you just as much mentally as they do physically, or regular meditation, or talk therapy. Getting into a flow with your agenda and feeling like your schedule is supporting your self-improvement can go far for supporting your self-image.
Virgo (August 23-September 22)
The promise of a new year feels just about as appealing as a blank page on which to write juicy to-dos for you, Virgo. But you might want to take up a lighter, more playful vibe as the sun moves through your fifth house of romance during Cap season. Unstructured time with loved ones and creative self-expression are especially fulfilling now, so make sure you carve out time to journal, paint, dance, or take in a play you’ve been wanting to see. The bottom line: Allowing your heart to take the reins can be just as productive as letting your head run the show.
Libra (September 23-October 22)
You’ll be in sync with this wintery season, given that the sun moves through your fourth house of family life. While you’re often buzzing from one social function to the next, Cap season will inspire Libras to stay close to home, perhaps inviting friends and loved ones over for a catch-up session on the couch, fresh-baked goodies, or a good old-fashioned Netflix binge. The moment also presents an opportunity to “feather your nest,” pinpointing the aspects of home life that make you feel happiest and magnifying them in whatever way feels right intuitively. This can go far to boost your feeling of security and centeredness.
Scorpio (October 23-November 21)
Get ready to be a little vulnerable, Scorpio. Maintaining an air of mystery and preferring to err on the side of private over public is generally your M.O. But Cap season marks the sun’s trip through your third house of communication, so you could be stirred to open up more often. Interaction with others fuels your work and your energy even more than usual right now, so pack a heavy schedule. The more you can tune into and cater to your intellectual curiosity, as well as thirst for knowledge and connection, the greater your mental and emotional benefits.
Sagittarius (November 22-December 21)
While it might be tough for you to transition from the festive, non-stop partying spirit of the holiday season into the more staid vibe of Capricorn season, there is an incentive! When the sun leaves Sagittarius, it moves into your second house of income, where it can amplify your desire to create security and do work that reflects your values. In turn, you’ll want to pitch solid moneymaking ideas and pursue professional paths that feel practical yet right for you. It’s also possible you’ll want to pamper yourself a bit, so just make sure you’re sticking to your budget!
Capricorn (December 22-January 19)
Welcome to your season and the sun’s trip through your first house of self, Capricorn! It’s your time to shine—and define how you want the year ahead to look. Though you’re often content to first identify pragmatic aims, then put your nose to the grindstone, you’ll do well to use this confident solar power to identify your biggest, boldest aspirations, then envision a step-by-step game plan for making them a reality. Remember to take breaks and be kind to yourself, as you’re reminded now that self-compassion and self-care are just as integral to your success as hard work.
Aquarius (January 20-February 18)
You’re more comfortable in the realm of science and data, facts and figures—anything you can see, touch, and prove. But Cap season and the sun’s journey through your twelfth house of spirituality encourages you to go deeper, to rest and recharge, and to explore themes of psychology, spirituality, dreams—even escapism. If these nebulous ideas make you a bit unnerved, you’re doing it right. After all, doing the work that can lead to self-discovery is rarely easy, but it’s definitely rewarding, Aquarius.
Pisces (February 19-March 20)
You’ll be devoting much of your time to a wide array of social gatherings, team efforts with colleagues, and group workouts while the sun moves through in your eleventh house of networking. Being a Pisces, you're insanely sensitive to other people’s energy. So realistic Cap season presents an opportunity to both connect with others and stay centered in your emotions. If you feel like the latter is being compromised, you’ll do well to take a time-out for self-care.
