Happy new year, dear Capricorn! Welcome to 2022!
The new calendar year always arrives during your special season, when the Sun pours light into Capricorn after the December Solstice and your birthday season arrives. I hope you’re celebrating yourself and feeling those warm rays, even if it’s cold where you live.
How are you doing on your latest cosmic assignment? The one where you do your part in lifting Earth and humanity up into the new Age Of Aquarius? Ever since 2020’s memorable Solstice in late January, when Jupiter and Saturn (your zodiac sign’s planet) met in Aquarius in that historic grand conjunction, you may have felt more urgency around letting go of the old age and entering the new age.
Take a moment before we get to your 2022 horoscope to look back at the past year by touring your 2021 horoscope.
Excellent, Capricorn. Excellent.
Now let’s turn to this shiny new year, when you will continue playing a key role.
While your Capricorn sense of duty and responsibility may spur you to dive into new projects right away, prevailing astro energies indicate a slow start. Here’s why:
Because both these planets affect you directly and so personally, you’ll benefit from taking life slowly the first several weeks of 2022. Use this period to continue the deep soul searching you’ve been engaged in since powerhouse Pluto entered Capricorn in 2008.
With Saturn, your ruling planet, in Aquarius (your second house of earning, possessions, and values) until March 2023, focus particularly on work, from the type of job you do to the money you earn to how both reflect your values. Look at whether your boss, coworkers, and clients value you and your talents; if you realize you need to make a job or career change, this retrograde period offers a perfect time to gain clarity on your next move. (But wait until the retrogrades end to act on your ideas.)
By January 18, you may feel a change in the air. Sense what’s coming up for you at that time because love, money, and destiny may need to combine in a new equation for you, Capricorn:
That means you’ll have two celestial helpers in your fifth house, urging you to leverage all things creative to express yourself in a futuristic, “out of the box” manner. Note that planets in Taurus always point to Venus because the love planet rules this zodiac sign, so, as the year starts, your forward momentum is tied directly to all the Venus retrograde energy in Capricorn.
As the year progresses, you’ll find it revealing to track Venus’s moves through the zodiac. Watch which sign Venus occupies and when this planet changes zodiac signs, then consult your birth chart for which house (and other planets) are emphasized for you, which will show where your future and Age Of Aquarius destiny currently are playing out.
As planets move through Taurus later in the year, your move into future paths will have more help as well as greater urgency. Dates to watch are:
Speaking of Mars, this fiery planet of new beginnings will spend a full seven months (instead of its usual several weeks) in Gemini, your employment and health house, due to retrograde motion. You’ll host the zodiac’s fireball from August 20, 2022, through January 12, 2023, allowing you to act on all this year’s inspirations about money, values, self-expression, and work.
Mark your calendar for the periods May 10 through October 28 as well as December 20 through May 16, 2023, when Jupiter spends two chunks of time in Aries, your fourth house of home, family, and spiritual underpinnings. Explore your roots, maybe with a genealogy project, increase time with loved ones, or consider enlarging your home. See how lineage informs your beliefs and philosophy of life.
Turnarounds and turning points may arrive with this year’s eclipses. Now that the North and South Nodes have changed signs to Taurus and its opposite sign, Scorpio (your eleventh house of friendship, humanitarianism, and networking), you’ll see four eclipses in these signs:
As you can see, Capricorn, you have plenty of planetary action in 2022, bringing new opportunities and support.

I wish you triumph as you dive deep, overcome outdated habits, and align even more strongly with your inner self and soul’s desires. Let Venus’s love and pleasures guide you as you step into a higher version of yourself - and your life.
Happy new year, Capricorn!
