Capricorn Horoscope (December 22 – January 19)

Capricorn 2020 Horoscope
(December 22 - January 19)

Capricorn isn’t the last sign of the horoscope, but it’s the one we’re closing out the year with. They’re a driven, focused sign that’s patient and efficient.

This might feel like the perfect time to sit back, relax and enjoy the holidays, but the only way to get through this season is to buckle down, focus on what you want, make a game plan then follow it to the T.  

We’re using our time in isolation to find ways to improve ourselves. There’s a whole world waiting to see how we transform for the better. So let’s show them what we can do.


Three of Wands | The Star | Knight of Wands

Things are moving slowly and it’s starting to get on your nerves. Your sign was made for moving and shaking but the current state won’t let you get out and move. You may not be on the path to glory but keeping a positive attitude could help you get farther in life.

 We’re working through tough times. But you have to be your own ray of sunshine and work through the rough times, and just because you feel down doesn’t mean you can lash out at those around you. We’re all stuck in the same boat, so take time to figure out what pleases you. Remember that this too shall pass.

The Chariot | Queen of Cups | Knight of Pentacles

It might feel like this is your time to shine. You’ve had plenty of time to think, plan for the future three months or three years from now. But you’re feeling directionless and lost. 

The time you’ve had to plan has been spent letting your mind wander. It’s gone to some pretty nasty places (not in a fun way). Being alone has taken its toll on you, pushing you to two extremes, spending too much time with yourself or too much time with other people.

Drawback and regroup, your friends and family can survive without you for an hour, a day or a week. Focus on your biggest responsibility: you.


Ten of Cups | Six of Cups | The Hermit

This has been a time of confusion and stagnation. But on the bright side, you’ve built something worthwhile that you can be proud of. As you prepare to make your next major step in life, don’t let the past get in your way. It has a nasty habit of popping up when we least expect it. 

Your decisions now will affect the rest of your life. Don’t let past prejudices or experiences alter how you make your decisions from this point on. It’s your life, the ghosts of your past don’t get to decide how the rest of your life turns out. Look forward with confidence and pursue what you want out of life.


The Moon | Five of Wands | King of Cups

Everything is grinding to a halt but your life has just gotten far more interesting (complicated). It might be a new job or romance, but it’s a wrench in your plans. What might be an exciting plot line in a Hallmark movie is throwing your life out of order. 

Even though you’ve found new drama in your life, an old conflict has finally been laid to rest. It’ll be a relief to face your new problem head-on without worrying about the weight on your shoulders. 

Now you can deal with your problems, major and minor, with clear head and sight.

Eight of Pentacles | King of Cups | Five of Cups

You have a good reason to be proud of yourself and your work. You’re good at what you do and you make sure everyone knows it. 

The time we’ve spent cooped up indoors has helped you hone your craft, whether it’s as simple as baking or as complex as coding. You’ve also had a chance to find balance. Whether you work at home or go into the office, the extra quiet time has helped you find a little bit of peace. 

With that comes a clear head to make a big decision. Something important is going to be leaving your life soon. Although it may hurt, it’s important to understand that things and people come and go. It’s just the unfortunate nature of life. When the time comes, grieve, finding the strength to move on.


King of Swords | Four of Cups | Ace of Cups

Last season, you had plenty of good luck and weathered the trouble headed your way. The ease and good fortune of Sagittarius has gone to your head. You had to get serious last season to set boundaries and cut some unpleasant people out of your life. That power has gone to your head and now you’ve become the judge, jury and executioner of all your relationships, including the good ones. 

You’ve already started to remove the bad friends and acquaintances from your life. Take a step back. Feeling all over the place is okay. It’s expected. You’re restructuring your entire support circle and it doesn’t feel good but it’s time to focus. You have to find a new center in this time of confusion. 

It’s time to explore a new frontier of things you like. Find what brings you joy and happiness while you’re going through this difficult time.


Two of Pentacles | Knight of Cups | Two of Cups

Like your sign, you’re pulling off a balancing act this season. Whether you’re working from home or venturing out of the office, you’re balancing a busy schedule full of work, family and little free time. While we’re supposedly able to multitask, it doesn’t seem to be working out for you. 

The balancing act of home and work looks like it’s leading to some spectacular drama in your life. While you may be avoiding conflict like it’s COVID-19, you’re contributing to the storm that’s brewing at home and at work. Avoiding problems, whether you started them or not, will only make them worse. 

Toughen up–find reasonable solutions to your problems instead of sweeping them under a rug. Future you will probably thank you for the lack of headaches.

Three of Wands | Ten of Cups | Four of Cups

Good things come to those who wait and you’ve waited long enough. Get ready for the good times to come rolling in. But remember that good fortune sometimes comes with strings attached. 

While your fortunes may be increasing and your relationships flourishing, conflict might start rising at home. Whether it’s meddling nosy relatives or just a lack of communication turning silly problems into major problems, get your house in order. 

It won’t do for you to ignore it. When it feels like it’s too much to handle, don’t give up. Keep fighting for your peace of mind. 


Queen of Pentacles | Ten of Wands | Queen of Wands

Last season was your time to shine, but things are taking a turn for the worst. You’ve found that there are a lot of unreliable people in your life. Unfortunately, this is the time they decided to show they’re flakier than a head full of dandruff. 

You need more help than ever now that a bulk of your friends have left you to the wolves. They helped you reach your goals, but weren’t interested in helping you deal with maintaining your wins. You didn’t think it would be so hard.

 But there are still people you can lean back on. Look to the people who didn’t leave you high and dry when you first asked for help and share your workload. Don’t worry about rushing. Rome wasn’t built in a day and trying to force calm won’t work. Though you may feel down now, chin up, you can take anything the world throws your way and make it better. 


Eight of Wands | Ace of Swords | Six of Swords

Life is moving through the fast lane for you. Luckily in the right direction and it’s your time to shine. We’ve been stuck inside for a long time, cooped up with our thoughts and annoying family members. Despite the space you’ve had to share your thoughts and with Mom, you’ve had plenty of time to focus your energies on what you want. 

You’ll soon be moving on to bigger and better things. That might be a bigger room, a place all to yourself or a better job. It might be painful to step forward because all the things and people you love might get left behind; your family, friends and old life, but that’s the price of progress. Think about what’s ahead of you and the happiness you’re looking forward to.

Four of Pentacles | Death | Queen of Cups

It’s more important than ever to learn to be grateful and generous. It might be a bit of cash to a friend or charity or giving your time to a friend who needs it. Don’t think of the doors your kindness might open, but instead of the people you can help. 

Don’t think that being kind lets you off the hook. Growth and change are always around the corner and it’s no different for you. Avoiding it just makes your life more difficult. It makes life a little dull, especially when you aren’t finding ways to reach your full potential. 

It makes you needlessly doubt yourself. These last few weeks be generous, be open and find ways to make yourself more complete. 


Three of Swords | The Lovers | King of Wands

Things don’t seem to be looking up for you. Your loved ones feel far away, they might be across the country or across the street. But you’re feeling the separation and their absence either way. 

The time stuck inside has led to tears, sadness and conflict. Now that you’ve had a lot of time alone, you’ve seen a lot of your relationships aren’t that balanced. You may have become the mom of your group or you’ve found that people continuously take without giving back. Imbalance is the name of the game and it is not in your favor. 

That’s why it’s time for you to start looking out for you. As much as you want to help others, focus on you and take control of your life. Be bold and brave. If you haven’t had the chance, use this time alone to look inside and figure out what you want. You’ll feel better pursuing the thing you love.
