Sun in Capricorn ~ Dec. 21, 2009 to Jan. 19, 2010

Capricorn. Credit and copyright to Hareth.The Sun leaves Sagittarius and enters Capricorn on December 21 at 12:47 p.m. (EST) and will stay through January 19, 2010.

The Sun represents our vitality, our conscious will, and our untapped potential. In Capricorn, the Sun is tenacious, willful, ambitious, goal-oriented, and not afraid to do the hard work required to achieve goals.

While the Sun is in Capricorn, we are reminded that each of us have a purpose in life. There are goals we work toward. The Sun in Capricorn picks up where the Sun in Sagittarius left off. In Sagittarius, our ideals take center stage. The Sun is a visionary in Sagittarius. In Capricorn, the Sun takes what's been envisioned and finds a way to make it happen -- to make the commitment, devise the plan, do the work, gain success, and receive the recognition. What are your short-term or long-term goals?

With Mars retrograde beginning on December 20th and Mercury soon to follow on the 26th, it's an ideal time to reflect upon what motivates us, determine or redefine what we truly want to work towards, and make plans on how we can make them happen with the resources we have and the time we can dedicate to it. It's best to hold off on actually taking action until Mars is out of retrograde in March 2010.

While the Sun is in Capricorn, he will make alignments with the following celestial bodies (all dates reflect Eastern time zone; give +/-2 days for life span of influence):
  • December 24 and 25 ~ Sun conjunct Pluto and square Saturn. Serious tone to the holiday. The Capricorn-Sun is determined to put a spotlight on the cracks to our foundation. Expect for secrets to be revealed or what's been hidden to be uncovered. Harsh truths may have to be accepted, as the Sun shines a flashlight on our flaws.
  • December 31 ~ Eclipsed Blue Moon in Cancer at 2:13 a.m. (EST) at 11 degrees
  • January 4 ~ Sun conjunct Mercury-rx. Avoid making any life-altering decisions. Misunderstanding is common now. Choose words wisely. Easy for intentions to be misinterpreted.
  • January 7 ~ Sun quincunx Mars-rx. Refrain from making any major decisions or actions that have long-term effects. Watch tempers, especially with authority figures. Adjust attitude or point of view and use this energy to review upcoming action items.
  • January 11 ~ Sun conjunct Venus. In Capricorn, love and relationships take on a serious tone. Issues with commitments and the work that comes with being in relationships may come up now. Money matters might also be highlighted now. Redefining personal value systems.
  • January 13 ~ Sun sextile Uranus. Unpredictability. Breaking away from the norm. Need for individuality/freedom. Brilliant outlook. Unconventional solutions to existing problems. Opportunities from unlikely places or sources.
  • January 15 ~ New Moon in Capricorn at 2:11 a.m. (EST) at 25 degrees

What significance do planets, signs, and houses have in astrology? Planets have the function, the job to do. The style/manner they will use get that job done is defined by the zodiac sign they occupy. Where in our life the job gets done is determined by the house the planet occupies/transits. So, when Mars (aggression) is in Aries (bold), he is more assertive than when he is in Cancer (sensitive). When traveling through the 10th house (professional life), he may bring his confidence and motivation in matters relating to our career. While in the 11th house (friendships), we may be more inclined to having our social calendar packed with activities. Having the foresight for what may be coming up or receiving confirmation on what may be happening now are ways astrology can be beneficial ... as above, so below.
