I found this photo of a big, black spot on Jupiter on the Fox News website. It was created by the shadow of one of Jupiter’s moons. A similar dark shadow hovers over Fox News right here on planet earth, keeping its dim viewers in the dark while the worst President in the history of the republic continues to destroy the United States of America from the inside out.
But I digress! I’m supposed to be discussing Jupiter’s ingress into Capricorn which occurs on Monday, December 2.
The easiest way to determine how this momentous transit will affect you is to look in the rear-view mirror to late 2007: the last time Jupiter entered Capricorn. Back then, I had just started a new job and I was quickly reaping the rewards of my hard work, earning both positive attention from my superiors and the financial benefits that came with enhanced responsibilities.
Deja vu! I’m exactly in that same place again. The biggest difference this time around, however, is that both Saturn and Pluto are also in Capricorn. In fact, Jupiter and Pluto will be performing a little tango near my IC throughout 2020, forming a conjunction in my fourth house, dipping back a few minutes to form another, then moving all the way back into my third house to conjoin once more.
Of course, I appreciate the slow and steady nature of planetary transits through Capricorn because I have a Capricorn sun. Others might not feel the same way. In fact, Jupiter is considered to be in its astrological fall in Capricorn. But that’s okay with me. I can’t take another minute of Jupiter in Sagittarius and the idealistic polarization that planetary position brings to politics in general. Jupiter in Capricorn is going to force people to grow up and stop acting like spoiled children when they don’t get their own way. Partisan politics is so ridiculous right now.
A few other things should happen, too, including a major market correction. The over-inflated stock market should come crashing down to earth soon. Once Mars enters Capricorn in mid-February, we’re in for six weeks of major volatility as the red planet forms aspects with all the other planets already in the sign. Remember that America’s last “Great Recession” started in December of 2007, the last time that Jupiter entered Capricorn.
The most important thing to note is that Jupiter in Capricorn rewards the practical. Along with a lot of other good information, Cafe Astrology provides this terrific summary of how the planet performs in the sign:
“With Jupiter in Capricorn, we attract the best good fortune when we organize and direct, conduct ourselves with integrity, and employ an ethical and mature approach. We need to take a disciplined, committed, step-by-step approach to the realization of our goals.”
For someone like me — a Capricorn through and through — that couldn’t be better news. I’m ready for my sign to knock some hot air out of that gassy giant. Jupiter in Sagittarius was fun while it lasted, but I can’t say that I’m going to miss the platform that it gave all the blowhards in 2019. 2020 is going to be boring in comparison, and I couldn’t be happier about it.
