Capricorn season 2022 sees many transitions including Winter Solstice and moving into the New Year. This season invites you to get serious about establishing structure, purpose, and value in your life. 

We have recently shifted out of the fire element and motivational power of Sagittarius season 2022 into the earthy and constructive attributes of Capricorn. Good ole Cappy - the hardest-working star sign in the zodiac. This is perfect astrological weather for leaning into some productive work! 

If you have mindfully harnessed the Sagittarian energy of inspired action last season, then you can now use the pragmatic and hardworking earth energy of Capricorn season 2022 towards galvanizing purposeful structure towards your material realms.

Capricorn, which comes from the Latin word 'Capricornus' (horned like a goat), is the zodiacal archetype of sustained ambition. Born into the world with an innate mantle of responsibility, Cappy’s are old souls and as children can often appear to be adults trapped in the body of a child. No doubt, freaking out a parent or two!

The resilient and resourceful Capricorn sea goat strives upwards from the depths of the sea onto land and through mountainous obstacles on a quest for personal development and integrity. The ambitious manifesto of the trusty sea goat highlights all things - self-control, determination, strategy, patience, and pragmatism. The serious nature of the Capricornian archetype fuels the zones of reliability and self-sufficiency. 

A cardinal sign ruled by the planet Saturn - Capricorn is driven to express itself through action, self-initiation, and leadership. Cappy’s ruling planet Saturn is linked to the mythical Greek god Kronos (the stern father) and is associated with the concepts of structure, order, tradition, time, and boundaries. Determined Capricorn means serious business and expects you to get serious too!

Ruler of the tenth house of ambition, during Capricorn season 2022 there is an emphasis on career. From restructuring, contributing, influencing, strategizing or leveling up into a leadership role, Capricorn season 2022 will be dynamizing you into a successful plan for manifesting a solid and sustainable material life.
