Jupiter in Capricorn: Don’t Settle
Jupiter, the planet of expansion moves from Sagittarius into Capricorn today until December 19th, 2020. Jupiter’s energy holds space for us to bloom. It is perhaps the most positive energy we can work with in astrology. Jupiter reminds us that our unwavering faith and belief in ourselves is exactly what attracts serendipity and magic. Jupiter wants us to behave like kings and queens in every situation; to hold ourselves in a regal matter worthy of living our greatest dreams. Jupiter encourages us to feel our power to create our reality through positive thinking and the willingness to grow. To feel the immense magic of Jupiter, we must be willing to expand past our comfort zones, into the unknown where unlimited potential awaits us. If we are standing on a cliff looking at a vast landscape full of everything we desire, Jupiter pushes us off the cliff. It is only our committed belief that we can fly which prevents us from falling flat on our face. Jupiter gives us wings and teaches us how to use them.
Capricorn is a very different energy compared to Jupiter. Capricorn is focused, grounded and motivated. Capricorn’s energy helps us expand through hard work, dedication and calculated risks. Capricorn asks us to be conservative in our energy expenditure. It wants us to be very cautious when deciding who and what is worth our energy. Once we set our sights on something, Capricorn helps us discipline ourselves to keep the focus on the end goal. Whenever you feel yourself wander from a decided path, call upon Capricorn to help reorient yourself towards what you want to achieve.
