Jupiter enters Capricorn on December 3rd, 2019 to stay until December 19th, 2020.
Jupiter in Capricorn is one of the most important transits of the year and will influence you deeply and profoundly.
Imagine you have a friend who’s always up for a joke, even when the joke is not appropriate. In fact, they’re up for pretty much anything, and if you call them at 1 o’clock in the morning to plan your next adventure together, not only do they pick up the phone immediately, but they keep you awake till 5. We all have this friend.
Imagine you have another friend, friend no. 2. You call them at 6 PM (you wouldn’t dare to call them late at night) to ask if they want to meet up for dinner. They say “sorry, I have to work. Why you didn’t let me know in advance?”. When you finally go to their place (one month later) they won’t let you touch anything, let alone do the dishes, because there are house rules not to be messed with.
Now imagine your first friend goes to your 2nd friend’s place. Not only to have dinner, but to move in and stay there – not for the night, but for like, one year. How do you think your 1st friend will put up with your 2nd friend’s structure, rules, and what they would call “lack of spontaneity”?
This is how Jupiter in Capricorn will feel like (your first friend is a metaphor for Jupiter, and the 2nd friend is, of course, a metaphor for Saturn, Capricorn’s ruling planet).
Now, if your 2nd friend – let’s call him Saturn – would just give your 1st friend – let’s call him Jupiter – the house keys, Jupiter would still have to follow the house rules, but hey, he will still be Jupiter. He will still have some fun, even if he’s in someone else’s house.
But nope. Saturn is at home, and he will be living with Jupiter under the same roof for the whole year (Saturn is in Capricorn, and will stay there throughout 2020).
Now, to make things even more interesting, imagine that your friends Jupiter and Saturn don’t actually interact with each other. They live in the same house, they see each other, but they don’t exchange any words.
Throughout 2020, Jupiter and Saturn will agree on what to disagree. In Capricorn, Jupiter will play by the rules, but will also show Saturn those rules that are too restrictive and create an unnecessary division.
Jupiter In Capricorn And Saturn – A Long Term Affair
Jupiter and Saturn finally meet up in a conjunction ONLY once they both move to a ‘new home’, in Aquarius.
Believe it or not, even if they share the same sign for the whole year, Jupiter and Saturn only conjunct on December 21st, 2020 (at 0° Aquarius), when they both leave (a few days from each other) the haunted Capricorn house. This is when they finally reach an agreement.
PS: yes, I said the house was haunted, because Pluto is also in Capricorn (sharing the same roof with Jupiter and Saturn), to stay there until 2025.
This was a long introduction. But I wanted to paint the overall picture of Jupiter’s one year transit in Capricorn.
Does this sound gloom and doom? Not necessarily.
Saying that Jupiter in Capricorn is not fun is like saying intelligence is not sexy. Jupiter in Capricorn can be hysterically funny, because he’s not the stereotypical Jupiter, telling the same jokes over and over.
Yes, Jupiter will not feel at home in Capricorn. Jupiter is in “fall” in Capricorn, after all. But he will find creative ways to bring his Jupiterian agenda to life.
In Capricorn, Jupiter will get clever and pragmatic. He will dump those goals that are outrageously unrealistic and focus on what can practically be achieved. Jupiter will still seek consensus. BUT he will become more political and will learn how to use his position to call for real change.
Jupiter Conjunct Pluto – “I’m Your Father”
Jupiter will be very active in Capricorn, but the most important aspect Jupiter will make is, of course, the triple conjunction with Pluto, aka the Lord of Darkness, aka Darth Vader.
Truth be told, Pluto is quite comfortable in Capricorn. He’s been here since 2008 and he has pretty much claimed his reign.
But now, with Jupiter’s ingress in Capricorn, things will change.
Yes, Pluto is powerful beyond measure, but Jupiter is powerful too. He’s the largest planet in our solar system afterall, and the king of all gods.
Jupiter expands everything it touches, even when he’s in the restrictive Capricorn. He will want to blow off some steam. To release some skeletons from the closet.
Jupiter conjunct Pluto will be like a full-on therapy session. Some deep truths will be revealed. Truths about our mission and role in life. Truths about what’s possible, and what’s not. Truths about where we stand in the hierarchy of power and success.
Jupiter will have to come to terms with some hard truths that he’s been ignoring for 12 years. (The last Jupiter-Pluto conjunction was in 2007). Jupiter loves to be positive and to focus on the bright side, but everything has a shadow. And we all ultimately come to a point when we have to face it.
Jupiter will also influence Pluto. This ‘larger than life’ planet wants to find cohesion, wants to find the ‘obvious’ truth. So Pluto will have to be more upfront and stop hiding. The master of puppets will have to reveal his agenda.
Jupiter In Capricorn – Vision And Implementation
Jupiter’s one year cycle makes Jupiter the best planet to invoke and work with when we set one-year goals.
Also, thanks to his larger than life, big-picture approach, Jupiter notoriously is a great planet for intention setting, dreaming big and visioning.
Capricorn is the go-getter of the zodiac.
Jupiter comes with the vision, and Capricorn with the implementation. Jupiter in Capricorn is a great opportunity to set new goals and take on fresh challenges.
Jupiter in Capricorn – Grit
If it’s one word that would describe the Jupiter in Capricorn transit, that would be grit. The definition of grit is “the individual’s perseverance of effort combined with the passion for a particular long-term goal or end state”.
“Grit” is such a great fit for Jupiter in Capricorn. Not only we have Jupiter’s “passion for a long term goal”, but we also have Capricorn’s “perseverance of effort”.
And when we dream big, and we also find the inner strength to stick to our goal, we’re unstoppable. There’s nothing we can’t achieve.
According to psychologists who have extensively studied this trait, grit is more important than talent and IQ. Yes, grit is more important than talent. Grit is a greater predictor of success than your IQ!
So there you have it: the secret to success. Jupiter in Capricorn is indeed a transit to look forward to.
Of course, you will have to wholeheartedly embrace the transit. Many times we believe that good things should feel easy, and if they don’t feel easy, if they don’t feel natural, they’re not the right things for us anyway.
Jupiter in Capricorn is here to tell us that good things don’t necessarily come easy. But this doesn’t mean we should stop pursuing them.
On the contrary. Good things become even better when we work hard, when we put in some sweat and tears, when we feel we have ‘earned’ them.
So if anytime during Jupiter’s transit in Capricorn you feel like giving up on your goal, just give yourself some more time. Jupiter in Capricorn will test you. But if you stay there, if you show grit and persistence, Jupiter in Capricorn will reward you big time. It will be well worth the effort.
Jupiter in Capricorn – Important Dates:
Let’s have a look at the most important dates of Jupiter’s transit through Capricorn. (make sure you put them in your calendar):
- December 3rd, 2019 – Jupiter enters Capricorn
- December 15th, 2019 – Jupiter at 2° Capricorn trine Uranus at 2° Taurus

If in Sagittarius, Jupiter was not aspected much (apart from the square to Neptune), Jupiter in Capricorn is heavily aspected. He will have a lot of work.
It looks like Jupiter in Capricorn has no time to breathe, which is pretty fitting for a planet that transits the sign of hard work and ambition (Capricorn).
Once he’s done with one aspect, he gets engaged in another one. He doesn’t stop! This means in 2020 you will be busy too – or more exactly, the area of your life ruled by Jupiter will be busy.
If you have a Sagittarius or Pisces ascendant (the two signs ruled by Jupiter), 2020 will be especially busy and will bring lots of changes and developments.
Also, if you have personal planets or angles between 21°- 25° Capricorn, you will be especially affected by this transit, since these are the degrees where Jupiter conjuncts Pluto.
Jupiter conjunct Pluto will blow things out of proportion in the area of your life that is connected to the planet and with the transited house – for good and for bad. Of course, in retrospect, it’s always “for good” because planets always have our best interests.
So if for example, you have Venus at 24° Capricorn, your relationships may “blow up” which means that relationships will be extra emphasized. If the Jupiter Pluto conjunction takes place in your 10th house of career, you can expect a very eventful year in career matters. And so on.
With a heavy outer planet stellium in Capricorn, 2020 will be a year to remember.
Pluto, Saturn AND Jupiter will share the same sign for the whole year! We will not have 3 outer planets in the same sign anytime soon. Next time we have 3 outer planets in the same sign is 2060! – so this is BIG.
And Jupiter will make the difference in what you will be remembering 2020 for. If you want to have a great 2020, your ingredients for success are an unshakable faith, grit and a willingness to embrace some hard truths.

This is a great post, but aren’t all those dates after Dec. 15, 2019 supposed to be 2020?
Thanks for fixing because I always tweet your posts
Astrobutterfly your date of birth must be exciting to check, what astrology insight, you are BIG
It is going to take me a week to digest this!
My South Node is in Capricorn at 24,47′ in the 12th, honestly I’m terrified!
The best and useful description I have read so far 🙂 Thank you for your grit and insightfulness. Really great 🙂
My North Node in in Capricorn 23 degrees in the 8th house. What will this conjunction mean for me?
So… it seems like I’m in for a hell of a ride, this 2020. My Uranus-Neptune conjunction in Capricorn (respectively, 29° and 25°) in the 8th will be sandwiched between Jupiter and Pluto, next year, and continuously stimulated. The 8th, if I’m not mistaken, is about “death” (metaphorical of course), money, power and sex. I’m both curious and terrified. I have Capricorn on my DC too, so I just hope I can rely on someone lol
Fabulous post, thank you. I’ve got 0 degrees Mars Cap and 26 degrees Mercury Cap, in 9th house. I’ve read so much on these Pluto/Saturn/Jupiter placements, this one got my attention, this post absolutely GOT IN ! I’m looking forward to the North Node leaving Cancer too. I’m sure it will help a lot.
What if you have the sign of Capricorn intercepted in your chart, engulfed by Sagittarius in the 12th and 1st houses?
Thank you for a very interesting post. Capricorn ascendant with 4 natal planet (including jupiter) stellium capricorn 1st house. Interesting, but very complex to make interpret for me as a beginner in astrology
Wonderful post, thank you astro butterfly! You are always inspiring and I love your style 🦋
Loved your post, thank you. Interesting year for many
thank you so much for your explanation, guide and every bit of it was amazing!
Running to check my chart.
This is promising as i am a capricorn, 4th house. That house is crowded too.
What a time it will be
THANK GOD I FINALLY READ THIS!!!
You write: “Moreover, in the first days of 2019 Jupiter is applying to a conjunction with the South Node, the Node of karma and past lives (the Jupiter-South Node conjunction will become exact on January 8th, 2019).
So if you set new goals before the 8th of January, these new goals will be too anchored in the past, which goes pretty much against the idea of setting goals for the future.
That’s why my recommendation is to set your 2020 goals after January 8th, when Jupiter has already crossed over the South Node.”
MY BIRTHDAY IS JAN. 8, AND I’LL BE 75 Y.O.
AND IT’S LOOKING LIKE I’M FINALLY CLOSE TO MANIFESTING MY DESTINY — HELPING PEOPLE WHO HAVE DEPRESSION AND/OR ANXIETY LEARN TO LOVE THEMSELVES.
I HAD DEBILITATING DEPRESSION/ANXIETY FROM THE TIME I WAS 28 TO WHEN I WAS 59.
I JUST LEARNED (LAST SUMMER) HOW TO CARE FOR, BE WITH, AND LOVE THE LITTLE GIRL INSIDE OF ME, AND I BELIEVE THIS IS THE MOST IMPORTANT THING WE CAN DO IN OUR LIVES.
WITHOUT LOVING OURSELVES, HOW CAN WE LOVE OTHERS?
Love to all here from Sally
Hello, I already read a few hundreds articles of the year 2020. This one is a very nice one!!!
And you know what????
In my radix I have Jupiter on 22° Capricorn in House 4… so that stellium of january 12 and that conjunction Jupiter^Pluto comes over my radix Jupiter…
It will be a very special 2020 for me!!! I look forward to see and experience what will happen. Greets, Ronnie
Im scared. We the caps have been dealing continuosusly with a lot of problems during the last 2 years and it seems that the next year will be nothing easy
Holy moly!! “I am your father”. I was meditating a few years ago and heard a Darth Vader kind of voice saying “I am your father” and saw Jupiter’s symbol.
Did some research, and discovered in history he was referred to as “the shining father”. He’s been my main man ever since lol
