It’s Capricorn season! From approximately December 22nd – January 21st each year, give or take a day, we naturally gravitate towards setting new long-term goals for the year ahead. As the sun moves through Capricorn, we automatically begin planning ahead, making strategies, thinking about the future, and taking practical action to bring our goals into action.
This is why setting new year resolutions is such a popular thing! And as this ambitious Capricorn energy fades towards the end of January as the sun moves into Aquarius, our resolutions can also lose steam – or change.
Here’s how I use this Capricorn energy to create an abundant year:
- Create a vision board. Get dreamy and creative as you create a visual representation of what you want to manifest for the year ahead. Some things I add to my vision boards: courses I want to take, specific amounts of money I want to receive, places I want to travel to, and – most importantly – how I want to FEEL. I’ll add some corresponding crystal chips, dried herbs/pressed flowers and essential oils too for a bit of extra manifesting magick!
- Do a rough plan of the year ahead. I look at the things I want to do and create a rough timeline of when I’d like to make these things happen. For example, last year I KNEW I wanted to do a yoga teacher training course, so I planned it for April. I also scheduled in retreats I wanted to run and a family holiday – which didn’t happen because COVID happened! But the point is – write it down, put it out there to the Universe, and then just wait to see what the Universe provides!
- Break it down into smaller steps. This is where the magick really happens! So you’ve set those big goals for your year ahead – now break it down into small, actionable steps! So you want to sell your house, go to Hawaii, find your soulmate, or whatever your big goal is – what’s the first step you need to take to make it happen? You can schedule these smaller steps into your 2021 Moon Planner so you stay in alignment with your goals for the year ahead.
- Commit to ONE ACTIONABLE STEP today! Use this ambitious Capricorn energy to fuel you towards taking just ONE step towards your goals today. It might be something simple like making a decision, having a conversation, or doing a Google search. Commit & do it – you’ll be one step closer to achieving your goals!
Capricorn Season Forecast
So now that I’ve shared my tips for making the most of Capricorn season, here’s a forecast so you can work in alignment with the cosmic energy!
21st December 2020
Sun moves into Capricorn; Jupiter conjunct Saturn in Aquarius
For the next four weeks, we’ll be tuning into how we can plan ahead, strategize & reach our goals in 2021. Use this ambitious energy to get a headstart on what you want to achieve for the year ahead!
Today also marks the Great Conjunction – Jupiter aligns with Saturn, an event which only occurs every 20 years. A new age is beginning as we step into the free-thinking, rule-breaking, future-focused energy of Aquarius. Our society will shift into an age of innovation, technological advances, rebellion – all to help us GROW through meeting challenges with fresh ideas.
23rd December 2020
Mars in Aries squares Pluto in Capricorn
Power struggles arise as we strive to be the best. Anger & other low-vibe emotions may surface today as we feel frustration towards a lack of growth & power. Today is an important day for shadow work – diving deep into your triggers so you can understand why you’re feeling this way, and how you can heal that part of yourself.
24th December 2020
Mercury in Capricorn squares Chiron in Aries
You know that saying, “Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me”? Well today proves this old playground rhyme to be wrong. WATCH WHAT YOU SAY – your words may inflict pain, even unintentionally. You can channel this energy through journaling practices so you can work through your own healing & past wounds. Just be careful of how you express yourself to others…
25th December 2020
Mercury in Capricorn trines Uranus in Taurus
Be open-minded and follow your intuition! You may receive unexpected insights today about what you would really like to do in 2021. Strange conversations or weird ideas may occur today, but these can spark your imagination & creativity in a practical sense.
26th December 2020
Sun in Capricorn squares Chiron in Aries
A day for healing. Your ambitious focus may come to a crashing halt as the need for healing becomes apparent. Let go of the future and come back to the present, focus on healing your inner/outer self. What is your soul craving? A lazy day in front of Netflix, a restorative yoga session, a large detoxifying salad…? Listen to those calls for healing yourself so you can show up to your highest potential.
28th December 2020
Sun in Capricorn trines Uranus in Taurus
Today will be a good opportunity for you to start planning ahead for 2021, as we’ll be fuelled with creativity energy + inspiration to make ambitious + practical plans. You’ll be able to come up with original ideas that fit YOUR unique style, and express these in a grounded & future-focused way.
30th December 2020
Full moon in Cancer sextile Uranus in Taurus; Venus in Sagittarius squares Neptune in Pisces
The last full moon of the year! Time to release 2020. Emotional healing is a big focus for this full moon, and you’ll find an opportunity to do this in a way that feels good for you, even if it’s not what others would call “healing”. Trust your intuition and RELEASE in whatever way you feel called to. Venus squaring Neptune will bring up sensitive emotions and perhaps a difficulty of expressing love for yourself or others. LOVE YOURSELF even if 2020 has brought up a lot of ugliness for you. Love every part of this journey, because it’s shaped you into this AMAZING person who is ready to change things for the higher good in 2021.
31st December 2020
Venus in Sagittarius opposes North Node of Future Destiny in Gemini
Open your heart and express how you really feel. Share your true desires and what you really want to attract. Venus in Sagittarius has got you going DEEP into your true desires + values, but you’ll probably been keeping these to yourself. The thing about manifesting your desires is that, when you SHARE your thoughts with others, it sends a signal to the Universe that you’re serious about what you want!
1st January 2021
Mercury in Capricorn sextiles Neptune in Pisces
We’re starting 2021 with a STRONG intuition. Your psychic abilities are enhanced, your instincts are accurate. It’s a good day for asking your spirit guides for guidance for the year ahead, as your thoughts will naturally be gravitating towards your future goals.
4th/5th January 2021
Mercury in Capricorn conjoins Pluto in Capricorn
A day of intense transformation – your long-term plans may change, you could breakthrough communication/writing blocks. Expect deep change today as your curiosity is ignited and your mind is sharpened. You’ll see the higher perspective & feel empowered with your words.
6th January 2021
Mars moves into Taurus
Mars, the planet of ACTION, moves into the grounded energy of Taurus today. Mars will be transiting through Taurus for the next 2 months, slowing down your impulses and calming anger. I’m feeling this Mars in Taurus energy will bring a wave of calm throughout the world, as we all learn to take a few deep breaths before taking action.
8th January 2021
Mercury moves into Aquarius; Venus moves into Capricorn; Sun in Capricorn sextiles Neptune in Pisces
Shifts are happening today as our thoughts shift towards logic + intellect, and our desires become more practical. Inspiration sparks creativity, and we bring a touch of spirituality to our practical plans. What is the next logical step to take towards your goals? How can you bring some spirituality or magick into the mundane everyday?
9th January 2021
Mercury in Aquarius squares Mars in Taurus; Venus in Capricorn trines Mars in Taurus
The “slow & steady” energy of Mars in Taurus is the spotlight of today. Your mind will be racing with fresh ideas & ways to improve things but feelings of frustration may come to surface – so many things to do but so little time! Today you’ll find comfort through taking a practical approach to manifest your goals. Slow and steady steps to make BIG DREAMS turn into your reality! So take a few deep, calming breaths (maybe meditate for a while too!) and work on those practical action steps.
10th January 2021
Mercury conjoins Saturn in Aquarius
Remember how yesterday your mind was racing a million miles an hour? Today you’ll find it SO much easier to discipline your mind! You’ll also be taking care with your words, perhaps censoring yourself. You may put boundaries in place with time spent replying to emails, communication, or scrolling on social media, as you strive to control your communications.
11th January 2021
Mercury conjoins Jupiter in Aquarius; Mercury & Jupiter in Aquarius sextile Chiron in Aries
After yesterday’s censorship & strict control over communication, today you’ll find new ways to GROW with how you express your ideas. This optimistic self-expression helps you find healing, and can bring powerful manifesting power to you. Talk about those past wounds, release them so you can make room for new intentions to grow.
12th January 2021
Mercury in Aquarius squares Uranus in Taurus; Venus in Capricorn squares Chiron in Aries
Open-mindedness helps you try new things today – embrace the challenge of stepping out of the ordinary and into the extra-ordinary. You’ll feel safe + support to do something different! This new way of experiencing the world comes as you open yourself to healing relationships, finances & other things you highly value. It won’t be easy, but if you shift through these energetic blocks today you will find opportunities will soon come flooding towards you.
13th January 2021
Mars in Taurus squares Saturn in Aquarius; Venus in Capricorn trines Uranus in Taurus; New moon in Capricorn
The first new moon of the new year allows you to set ambitious long-term intentions! Dive deep into what you really want to achieve for the year ahead – what’s the impact you want to make on the world? You’ll be challenged by taking a slow & steady approach VS freeing up your self-discipline – do you stick to your carefully planning, or do you give yourself a bit of freedom? Venus trine Uranus will give you an exciting boost to your manifesting powers as you step into what YOU really want to manifest – you might be open to manifesting some new & exciting things this new moon!
14th January 2021
Uranus stations direct in Taurus; Sun conjoins Pluto in Capricorn
FINALLY all the planets are out of retrograde – but only for a short period of time! The effects of Uranus in retrograde are very subtle so we may not notice a huge shift of energy immediately, but it is nice to know that the planets are all direct again (at least until 31st January when Mercury goes retrograde…).
Also today – the sun is conjunct with Pluto in Capricorn – which can heighten your intuition, bring you a sense of power, but also assist with transformations & breakthroughs. This is a great time to clear out the old to make way for the new – you may feel called to clear out your closets, break bad habits (especially when it comes to money, sticking to plans, or self-sabotage), or maybe reinvent your appearance with a fresh hairstyle.
17th January 2021
Jupiter in Aquarius squares Uranus in Taurus
Find the positive aspects of sudden changes. If things feel out of control, just focus on what you CAN control. S l o o o o w down and rest your chaotic mind so you can find the abundance, joy & hope in your life.
19th/20th January 2021
Sun moves into Aquarius
And Aquarius season begins! Look out for my Aquarius season forecast in January so you can get all the important deets of the astrological energy coming up…
