There’s a strong emphasis on love affairs, friendships and your roots this year, Capricorn, in what should be a strong year for your family.
The Capricorn Super New Moon on January 2nd starts things off on an optimistic note and the Full Moon in your love zone on January 17th is a time for making memories. Watch out for Mercury retrograde moving backward into Capricorn in late January, however – astrology suggests that this will inhibit your communication skills, just as Mars moves into your sign on January 24th, increasing your assertiveness, but also your temper.
The Northern Hemisphere spring months are strong for you, with a stellium of Venus, Mars and Pluto working in your favor in early March in particular. Early signs of the astrological year’s emphasis on family pop up around the Aries New Moon on April 1st. You’ll be pondering the mysteries of life during the rare Jupiter-Neptune conjunction on April 12th, so you’ll appreciate the firm foundation of your roots even more.
A Solar Eclipse in the love affairs sector of your natal birth chart on April 30th shakes things up. If you are single, this could point towards a dramatic and fated encounter with someone new; if you are in a relationship already, an intoxicating attraction elsewhere could be problematic. On May 10th, however, joyful Jupiter takes up residence in the family zone of your chart, bringing happiness as well as a green light for family projects.
The Lunar Eclipse on May 16th is in your social zone, so friendships may start or end in dramatic style around the middle of the year. With Mars changing signs to focus on your family zone on May 24th, channel your energy into a house move, renovation or the resolution of a long-term family problem.
July 13th brings a Super Full Moon in Capricorn – an emotional and poignant moment, during which you’ll want to express gratitude for your blessings. On July 28th, Jupiter turns retrograde in the family area of your natal birth chart, so family matters may turn less optimistic for a while, at least until the Full Moon in this zone of your chart on October 9th.
A Solar Eclipse in your social zone on October 25th, together with its partner Lunar Eclipse in your love affairs zone of the zodiac on November 8th, suggest that a friendship may turn into something much more significant particularly if you are single. Venus changes signs and arrives in Capricorn on December 9th, promising a festive season full of romance. Meanwhile, Jupiter returns to the family zone of your natal birth chart on December 20th. This together with the Capricorn New Moon on December 23rd rounds out the year on a very positive note – although do look out for Mercury retrograde in your own sign on December 29th.
Whether a friend turns into a lover or a lover becomes “just a friend”, this year’s Eclipses have a story to tell regarding your personal life. The Full Moon in your love zone on January 17th is an emotional rollercoaster and perhaps the first indication of unease in this area. Matters will settle down quite quickly initially, however, particularly once Venus turns direct in Capricorn on January 29th and the February 16th Full Moon provides an upswing of passion and depth.
Look to the Solar Eclipse in your love affairs zone on April 30th for a dramatic meeting of some kind; there could be infidelity here, or a tempestuous attraction. Although warm-hearted Jupiter changes signs and focuses on your family life from May 10th onwards, the Lunar Eclipse in your friendship zone on May 16th points towards an unstable set of circumstances.
The early summer months in the Northern Hemisphere are the best time to seek lasting love, if you are single. Venus’ arrival in your dating zone on May 28th is a good sign, as is the New Moon in the romance sector of your natal birth chart on June 28th. Mars changes signs and increases your passion on July 5th, ahead of the Capricorn Super Full Moon on July 13th – this in itself is just one week ahead of Venus’ arrival in your love zone, so this period should feel exciting and memorable.
The borderline between friendship and love becomes very blurred in October, however. Venus arrives in your social zone on October 23rd, just two days before the Solar Eclipse in this area of your natal birth chart. This is swiftly followed by the Lunar Eclipse in your dating and love affairs sector on November 8th, suggesting that emotions are tempestuous, and any new attraction may be extremely significant.
Passionate Mars turns retrograde in your wellbeing zone on October 30th, in an indication that the stress of the situation is affecting your mental health. Take good care of yourself in this period. Surround yourself with friends and supporters and seek professional counseling if you think it would help.
Allow the dust to settle through November. By the time Venus slinks into Capricorn on December 9th, you should have a much better idea of your romantic priorities. Jupiter, having spent some time retrograde, powers forward again in your family zone from December 20th, just in time to create a loving and peaceful festive season, backed up by the very positive Capricorn New Moon on December 23rd.
If some relationship issues are still unresolved, however, be very careful when Mercury turns retrograde in Capricorn on December 29th. You may be ending 2022 on a note of uncertainty, either unsure whether or not to tell the truth, or unable to discern whether someone else is telling it to you.
This year’s Eclipse cycle impacts your risk zone and your objectives zone, so although these Eclipses are more likely to impact your personal life, you may also feel their effects in sudden changes of heart about your career trajectory too.
Money matters get off to a good start in the first quarter of the year with the Aquarius New Moon in your money zone on February 1st; with Mars in Capricorn during this period, you are very focused on success.
On March 6th, luxury-loving Venus changes signs to encourage plenty of spending – fortunately, on the very same day, a sign change from Mars increases your drive to make money but take care that your income doesn’t vanish as soon as it arrives!
April 16th and the Full Moon in your career zone on this date are the first hints that you may be pondering career issues. On April 30th, the Solar Eclipse hits the risk zone of your natal birth chart, and you may feel tempted to take drastic action around this time.
The Jupiter-Pluto sextile on May 3rd brings you food for thought too, but Jupiter’s sign change into Aries, your roots zone, on May 10th is a stabilizing influence. However, that same day, Mercury turns retrograde in your everyday work zone, so you may struggle with boredom or with difficult colleagues. The Lunar Eclipse on May 16th brings news that shows you what is possible.
On July 5th, Mars moves into your risk zone, bringing a sense of restlessness and drama, which is exacerbated by the emotional Super Full Moon in Capricorn on July 13th. Look to the Aquarius Full Moon in the money area of your natal birth chart on August 11th for confirmation about what changes you can afford to make without compromising your lifestyle and your financial security.
If you do change career direction, don’t expect things to happen quickly. Mercury turns retrograde in Libra, the career zone of your chart, on September 9th, which will slow progress, although the Libra New Moon here on September 25th is more promising.
However, it’s the Eclipses again which are likely to prove illuminating. The Solar Eclipse in your objectives zone on October 25th rocks your direction once again and its partner Lunar Eclipse on November 8th urges you to step outside your comfort zone. Matters are not helped by Mars turning retrograde in the everyday work zone of your natal birth chart on October 30th and remaining that way for the rest of the year.
The Full Moon in this area of your chart on December 7th could be crunch time for a decision. The good news is that on December 20th, bountiful Jupiter moves back into your roots and stability zone, so you will end the year on a much firmer footing.

It will probably be a slow start to the year - you may not feel fully back into work mode until Mars turns direct on January 12th. All the more time to enjoy some romance though, especially during the Full Moon on January 6th. Venus transits your money zone from January 2nd, aligning you with abundance, and the New Moon here on January 21st is promising for your income.
On March 7th, your ruling planet Saturn changes signs. This may lead to increased stress levels during the year, as you will feel responsible for everyone and everything. However, with Pluto moving into your money zone on March 23rd, you are likely to discover several hidden talents that will help you manage the pressure. Pluto has not visited this part of your chart in your lifetime, and it could be quite an eye-opener for the next 19 years!
On March 25th, Mars moves into your opposite sign, boosting your passion levels but also increasing your temper. With this in mind, the potent Solar Eclipse at the bottom of your chart on April 20th may create drama and upheaval within the family. Try to stay calm and use the energies of the corresponding Lunar Eclipse on May 5th to rethink your long-term goals. With Venus moving into your opposite sign on May 7th, the waters will soon calm.
Indeed, on May 16th, Jupiter moves into the joy zone of your natal birth chart. This is a truly magical influence for you, bringing you the chance to be fully creative and joyful over the coming twelve months, and freeing up much more time for you to do whatever you love. The New Moon in this zone of your chart just three days later is symbolic of this fresh start.
July seems likely to be a happy month for your personal life in particular - the Capricorn Full Moon on July 3rd is very empowering, and the New Moon in your love zone on the 17th speaks to plenty of romantic promise. However, watch out for Venus turning retrograde in your passion zone on July 22nd - you will need to be very honest with your partner at this time.
It’s October that sees the biggest potential developments in your career this year, around the time of the Solar Eclipse on the 14th, which may see you thrust unexpectedly into the limelight during a mini work crisis of some kind.

2023 draws to a close on an optimistic note, although you’ll want to be careful with communication when Mercury turns retrograde on December 13th. The Full Moon in your love zone on December 26th, however, is a magical way to close the year.
It’s a very pleasant start to 2023 for love, especially in an established relationship. The Full Moon on January 6th shines from your opposite sign, creating warmth, intimacy, and soul-to-soul connection. There should be pleasant family-related news too, especially on March 21st during the New Moon.
However, Saturn’s change of sign in early March could add pressure to your relationships simply because it creates many more responsibilities for you. You’ll need to work hard to give your love life the attention it deserves, although it will help when Mars moves into your opposite sign on March 25th.
Family dynamics could be shaken by the Solar Eclipse on April 20th, so it’s important to stay calm at that point. The following day, Mercury turns retrograde in one of the most passionate zones of your chart - saying little is a good idea. By May 7th, when Venus moves into your opposite sign, the dust will have settled.
From then on, everything looks very rosy in your romantic life. Jupiter, that most joyful of planets, moves into your pleasure zone on May 16th, paving the way for twelve months of happy memories, new connections, passion, fun, and laughter - with the Full Moon on May 19th opening this up to a great start.
You’ll also enjoy some memorable moments once Venus moves into the passion zone of your chart on June 5th, and again during the Capricorn Full Moon on July 3rd. Be aware, however, that when Venus turns retrograde on July 22nd, jealousy or secrecy could become an issue.
Look to the Full Moon in your family zone on September 29th for a strong emotional connection with loved ones and perhaps a reunion too, or the end to a family feud.

On November 8th, Venus is right at the top of your chart. As well as being helpful for your working life, this influence can also suggest great pride in your love life; you will very much enjoy being the center of attention at this point, so pack on the glamor and the showbiz vibe.
It looks to be a pleasant and peaceful holiday season to round out 2023, and the glorious Full Moon in your opposite sign on December 26th is a wonderfully romantic way to end the year.
Venus, in its capacity as a wealth planet, moves out of Capricorn and into your money zone on January 2nd, making this first month of the year an excellent time for abundance. There’s a New Moon in this zone of your chart too on January 21st, so don’t be afraid to try some new money-making ideas.
Saturn leaves your money zone, finally, on March 7th. This is good news for your bank balance and frees you up to create more wealth - however, Saturn’s new position in your chart does increase your stress levels; be careful not to overwork yourself this year.
Meanwhile, Pluto ends its tour of Capricorn, where it has been since 2008, to move into the money zone of your natal birth chart. Over the next 19 or so years, this revolutionary planet will indeed revolutionize your approach to and understanding of abundance. In particular, this is a very good time to ensure that your career path aligns with your higher, more profound, or spiritual goals.
On April 20th, a Solar Eclipse rocks the family zone of your natal birth chart, possibly due to your increased Saturn-driven work ethic and the conflict this brings with your family responsibilities. Take some time between then and August to try to rethink this balance.
On August 1st, the Full Moon shines from your money zone, creating a turning point in your wealth journey this year - hopefully a good one.

Nonetheless, when Mars moves to the very top of your chart on August 27th, your ambitions will soar.
It’s then a very productive period for work until the Solar Eclipse strikes at the top of your chart on October 14th. What feels like a crisis probably isn’t, so if you can stay calm and take control, you will emerge from this looking good. In particular, the Lunar Eclipse on October 28th rewards you for taking a calculated risk.
Venus heads into your ambitions zone on November 8th, adding to your charisma and making it easier for you to get support or investment from others.
