Look on the bright side, Capricorn! While you’re typically more of a realist, this year Jupiter in Pisces (Dec. 28, 2021 to May 10, 2022 and Oct. 27 to Dec. 20, 2022) encourages you to embrace an optimistic outlook. You’re enjoying a renewed sense of faith and trust in life and feeling more inclined to give the benefit of the doubt.
This is all thanks to three major aspects that Jupiter makes while in Pisces:
A sextile with Uranus in Taurus (Feb. 17) brings opportunities to connect with your inner child. Spending more time with children—your own or someone else’s—helps to keep you young at heart this year.
A Jupiter-Neptune conjunction in Pisces (April 12) amplifies both your intuition and your imagination. It can also cloud your perception, Capricorn—so be careful to distinguish positive thinking from wishful thinking.
As Jupiter sextiles Pluto in your sign (May 3), words and thoughts have the power to reshape your reality. By transforming negative self-talk into something more kind and compassionate, you could end up transforming yourself as well.
If you have siblings or cousins, Jupiter in Pisces can also see these relationships playing a bigger role in your life. And once Jupiter moves into Aries (May 10 to Oct. 27), this extends to parents, grandparents, and other ancestors.
Whether they’re here in body or in spirit, whether they’re currently in your life or not, your family of origin has helped to make you who you are today. So take time to honor your roots this year, in whatever way feels right for you. Chiron, also in Aries, helps you to heal the wounds of the past and find a deeper sense of safety and belonging in the present.
With the South Node and two eclipses in Scorpio (lunar: May 15; solar: Oct. 25), you might be tempted to go looking for this in others. This can get you tangled up in group dynamics that are more about controlling than connecting. Instead, the Taurus North Node and its eclipses (solar: April 30; lunar: Nov. 8) encourage you to become more grounded and centered within yourself. That way, Capricorn, you won’t feel the need to control anything or anyone else.
Venus begins and ends 2022 in your sign, Capricorn. So whatever happens in your love life this year, it’s likely to begin and end with you. The quality of your relationships depends a lot on how you’re feeling about yourself and the energy you’re putting out there to others. It makes sense, then, to work on bolstering your self-worth and self-love this year.
You’ll also want to spend some time reevaluating your relationship needs, especially during Venus’ retrograde (Dec. 19, 2021 to Jan. 29, 2022). Remember, they might not be what looks best “on paper” or conforms to conventional expectations. The heart wants what it wants—and Venus’ conjunctions with Mars and Pluto (Feb. 16 and March 3, respectively) empower you to pursue your heart’s desires in ways that just might transform your life.
Uranus in Taurus has been shaking you out of your relationship rut. And a Jupiter-Uranus sextile on Feb. 17 brings new opportunities to think outside the box: Experiment with new ways of meeting online, try dating outside your usual type, sample some different date-night spots, or surprise your partner with a grand romantic gesture!
At times, you might feel a little uncomfortable expressing your sensual side. With the North Node and two eclipses in Taurus (solar: April 30; lunar: Nov. 8), pleasure plays an essential part in your personal growth this year. As Mercury spends extra time in Taurus (April 10–29 and May 22 to June 13), you’re encouraged to listen to your body—and let it do more of the talking when you’re with that special someone.
Partnerships take priority in early summer, as the sun, Mercury, and Venus pass through your opposite sign of Cancer. Their squares with Jupiter and Chiron in Aries can bring up some big emotions and trigger some deep sensitivities for you and/or your partner. Their sextiles with Uranus encourage you to embrace these opportunities for healing and change.
Perhaps, Capricorn, you’ve gotten a little too comfortable with each other. If so, the Cancer planets’ oppositions with retrograde Pluto in your sign remind you that you’re always evolving. And if relationships are built to last, they’ll evolve along with you.
You work hard for your money, Capricorn. But, in 2022, it’s all about working smarter, not harder.
With Mercury in Aquarius from January 1–25 and Feb. 24 to March 9, you can set yourself up for success this year by taking stock of your financial situation—not only just what you make, or what you’ve got in the bank but also how your money choices reflect your personal priorities.
As Saturn continues his transit of Aquarius, delaying gratification for long-term rewards remains a smart strategy. Remember, though, Capricorn, that fiscal responsibility doesn’t always mean tightening your purse strings. Sometimes it means going all-in on your investments in the future.
This includes investing in your professional development, perhaps by taking more trainings and workshops this year. Mercury in Gemini (April 29 to May 22 and June 13 to July 4) is great for getting up-to-date on current trends, diversifying your skillset, and getting certified in new technologies or techniques. Just make sure you’re not taking on too many new responsibilities at once!
Once Mars sets up shop in Gemini (Aug. 20, 2022 to March 25, 2023), you’ll have more energy for multitasking. Do be mindful of how much you try to accomplish and how often you pivot from one task to another. Capricorn, you thrive on being busy with a variety of mentally stimulating tasks. Still, even you need to take a breather sometimes!
This is especially important in September and October, as Mercury, the sun, and Venus move through Libra. During this time, Capricorn, you can attract positive attention for your work, perhaps connecting with potential mentors who’ll help you reach the next level. The Libra planets’ oppositions with Jupiter and Chiron in Aries can make work-life balance a sensitive subject.
Fortunately, in October, these planets also form a Grand Air Trine with Mars in Gemini and Saturn in Aquarius—streamlining your work flow and your cash flow, so life feels almost effortless.
