Capricorn Season begins on the December 21st Solstice and runs until January 20th. The Solstice is a time to celebrate the Sun, the dependable Sun that rises and sets each day. Dependable is an energetic quality of Capricorn, which is represented by the mythical Sea Goat.
The Sea Goat is half fish, half goat, and belongs in three places- the mountains, the oceans, and nowhere. You see, the Sea Goat doesn’t really fit in. Neither place is really its true home. But despite this, the Sea Goat has remained dependable towards itself. It overcame the odds and climbed the tallest mountains and navigated the roughest waters.
The Sea Goat has the determination, the motivation, and the drive to make the most of whatever life has to offer. And, in turn, the Sea Goat has experienced the magic of the mountains, the mysteries of the sea, and the awareness to know it belongs everywhere and nowhere.
During Capricorn Season, we can all connect with the energy of the Sea Goat. We can all lean on its qualities to enrich our own lives and to make it through the season of our life we are in.
Capricorn is a hardworking, ambitious sign that knows how to survive. So if you have some challenges in your life, or you find this time of year particularly stressful, call on the Sea Goat to guide your way.
Cosmic Energies for Capricorn Season
This Capricorn Season, Mercury will be Retrograde. Mercury is the planet of communication, so we may find it easier to be on the receiving end of miscommunications. We may also find it more difficult to express how we really feel, or what we say may come across differently than intended.
Thinking before speaking is going to be a good practice here!
Mercury also rules over travel plans, so if you are heading off on a trip, be sure to double-check your reservations, be organized, and give yourself plenty of time. If you do encounter delays, trust in the diving timing of the Universe!
Capricorn Season 2023 also brings a sensitive and beautiful Cancer Full Moon on December 26, and Chiron stations direct on December 26, and Jupiter follows on December 30th.
As we move into January, we have a beautiful Capricorn New Moon on the 11th, and as Capricorn Season comes to an end, Pluto moves out of Capricorn into Aquarius, bringing a powerful shift in energy!
Let’s explore more of what this means for your sign with your horoscope for the Season!
Your Capricorn Season Horoscopes December 2023-January 2024
Capricorn Season will be sending some ambitious waves of energy your way! While other people may be resting and relaxing, it’s likely you are going to be hard at work, planning and organizing your next big venture! You are the sign of starting new things, so perhaps you have some new things that you wish to get started, and rather than wait for the new year, you are ready to start now! While it’s great to have such ambition, try to create a balance by also giving yourself time to rest and recharge too. The Cancer Full Moon on December 26, holds some soft and sensitive energy that may have you focusing on what is truly important to you. This Full Moon also holds supportive rays for creating a loving and supportive environment. See what small steps you can take to create more love and support in how you talk to yourself and in your living space. The Capricorn New Moon on January 11 is wonderful for any career endeavors you may have, so whatever ventures you have been busy working on, the New Moon is a wonderful time to put them out into the world and to make progress. If you don’t have any new projects you are working on, you can channel this energy into other areas of your career. You may find that you can step up and take on more responsibilities at work, or perhaps put yourself out there to be considered for a new position. If you want to change jobs, this New Moon is also great for putting your resume out there. Your hard work will pay off, so keep at it, Aries!
This is a season for exploring and expanding your mindset. What you once believed to be true may no longer resonate, and that’s ok. We are always moving to higher levels of truth and understanding as we journey through this life. It is also good once in a while to challenge our beliefs and the things people have told us. It is far more powerful to form our own opinions and to keep coming back to what resonates with us and what does not. The Cancer Full Moon on December 26 will be a powerful time to focus on sibling relationships. If a sibling relationship has been strained, this would be a good opportunity to find your love and compassion for each other again. Family matters are always triggered around a Cancer Moon, but this seems extra relevant for you under this one. Be sure you are protecting your own energy before you start involving yourself in the energies of others. You don’t have to solve everyone else’s problems, so if sitting on the sidelines works for you, then don’t feel bad about it! By the time you arrive at the Capricorn New Moon on January 11, the dust will have settled, and you will feel more empowered about the year ahead.
You may be feeling extra reflective as the year rolls to an end. So much has happened in 2023 for you, and you have a lot to be thankful for, but maybe there is a heaviness to how you are feeling too. Maybe things have not gone exactly the way you wanted, or perhaps they have, and that, too, is getting you to question things. There seems to be some deep introspection around you, so lean into it. Get out that journal and start writing down how you really feel. You may just surprise yourself as to what is lurking beneath the shadows of your mind. The Cancer Full Moon on December 26 is going to light up your finances! You may receive a nice holiday bonus or some good news moving forward in regard to your income. Alternatively, a work project may be coming to an end, or you may be leaving your current job in favor of something new. It does seem that your work life and finances are being supported and held by this Full Moon, so you direct the energy how you want it to go. The Capricorn New Moon on January 11 will help spice up your romantic life! If you are single, this is a good New Moon to put yourself out there, and if you are in a relationship, spend some quality time with your loved one. The sparks will fly extra high!
Capricorn Season will have you reflecting on your relationships. What makes you feel loved? What is a good partner? What friends do you wish to keep close to you? All areas of relationships will be on your mind this season, and perhaps you may find yourself needing to make some changes. You are a sensitive soul and are often picky about who you let into your inner circle. While this is not a bad thing, you may need to adjust some of your boundaries. Are you bound too tightly? Is there room for some more openness in your life? Or is it the opposite, do you need to be better at asserting your boundaries when around others? It is especially easy around the holiday season to let our boundaries go. We are often surrounded by family and may feel obliged to act or behave a certain way. While it is always a nice idea to be polite, especially with our elders, there are still things you can do to protect yourself. Carrying protective crystals, excusing yourself from conversations or the room, or simply avoiding situations that you know will not be healthy for you are all positive examples of how you can create boundaries. By the January 11th New Moon, life will be flowing at a better pace for you, and your attention will turn to some much-needed self-care! Enjoy some pampering under this New Moon, you deserve it!
Under the Capricorn Sun, you may find yourself extra busy! While a lot of people wind down at this time of year, you may find yourself winding up!

Staying organized and being on top of things is also going to be helpful, especially as it seems like you are juggling so much! The Cancer Full Moon on December 26, may reveal a secret or bring hidden information to the surface. You may find yourself dealing with some unexpected news or perhaps something you did not see coming. Alternatively, you may just be feeling extra sensitive or emotional under this Full Moon. It will be important to slow down and protect your energy levels here. Don’t overdo things or take on more than you can handle. This is also a good Full Moon to spend some time in quiet reflection. The holidays can be a busy, social time, but under this Full Moon, you may wish to just give yourself some downtime to be alone and do nothing! The January 11th New Moon will be fantastic for all things relating to your work life, this is especially true if your run your own business or work with clients. It seems that you will have an influx of people and projects to choose from! Abundance is also shining in your direction, so make the most of it!

Let go of any heavy stresses, ask for help if needed, and then give yourself time to relax and enjoy!

You may be thinking about making a move that will benefit your family, or perhaps you may wish to move closer (or further away!) from your family.

The Cancer Full Moon on December 26, is always a trigger for family issues, but this time around, it seems that you have the positive end of the stick! There is extra love surrounding you on this day, and perhaps instead of dealing with family conflicts, you are just feeling extra loved and supported by your family, chosen or otherwise!

Perhaps you have some downtime and are able to finally finish that book you have been writing, or pen the final touches to the song you have been composing. Your creative energies are at an all-time high this season, so use them to your advantage! Sometimes, when our creative energies are not given an outlet, they can manifest as anxieties!

The Sun has just moved out of your corner of the zodiac, and I hope you were able to bask in its warmth! As we begin Capricorn Season, you may be questioning what you truly align with or resonate with. What do you wish to keep close to you, and what is no longer serving you? It may be time to do a clearing, and the Cancer Full Moon will help you with this. Arriving on December 26, this Full Moon will guide you to clear and let go of all that no longer resonates with your being. It may be simple, such as stopping a certain supplement that no longer resonates, or it could be more dramatic like letting go of a relationship or apartment that has served its time. It seems that you are clearing or making space for more of what you want and less of what you don’t want! And that is always a good thing. January also brings opportunities for you to focus on your career and income. The Capricorn New Moon on January 11, could see a great new career path open up for you, or perhaps you receive some good news about your pay. This is a great New Moon for pushing yourself further along on your career path, so if that is important to you, use this New Moon to your advantage. Alternatively, this New Moon is also a good time to focus on your finances and to start thinking about investing or saving for your future. Having a retirement account or investment account can be incredibly helpful in creating wealth, so start looking into options that may work for you.

Happy Birthday, Capricorn! Welcome to your Season! I hope whatever is going on in your life, you are able to make the time to celebrate and honor just how far you have come.

It only does this so you can make changes and begin to become aware of what you need to improve in your life and in your relationships. As January rolls around, your attention may turn to your health and well-being. You may feel that you need to detox or perhaps recharge your batteries. Taking a trip somewhere or doing something to bring yourself into a state of relaxation and harmony will be very beneficial. The January 11th New Moon will help to instigate this flow of self-love and self-care. It may also be time to schedule a check-up or get those nagging symptoms taken care of.
The Sun is about to move into your sign next, so before this happens, you need to get ready for its arrival! You may find yourself needing to cleanse and purge things from your life. The Cancer Full Moon on December 26 will help you with this and guide you to let go of things that no longer resonate with your being. As we move into January, you may be feeling introspective or questioning some of the choices you have made. Questioning is a good thing! While you don’t want to doubt yourself, it is a good opportunity to check in and to make sure you are still feeling in alignment with all that you are doing. What resonates with you and what no longer resonates with you? While the Cancer Full Moon may have had you thinking about what you wish to release, the January New Moon on the 11th may have you thinking about what you wish to bring into your life.

Be prepared for a transformation from the inside out, but by the end of it, you will be stepping into some incredible newfound power!
Capricorn Season will have you focusing on your dreams and goals. Perhaps the determined drive of the Sea Goat has inspired you to start thinking about your purpose and what it is that you want out of your life. The compassionate and loving energies from the Cancer Full Moon will be helping you to be supportive and encouraging towards yourself. Perhaps you have big goals and dreams that you have been discrediting or perhaps you have mastered more than you have given yourself credit for! The Full Moon will be on your side to help you realize your potential and just how talented you are! Giving yourself this boost of confidence can help you move mountains when it comes to your goals and dreams. It may also be important for you to check in with whom you are surrounding yourself with. Sometimes, we want our family and friends to lift us higher, but that is not always the reality. This harsh reality may be something you realize under the Cancer Full Moon on December 26. You may have to be your biggest champion and drown out the noise from unhelpful or jealous family and friends. The compassionate energies of the Cancer Full Moon will help you to view things from a place of love rather than judgment, so keep this in mind if you are on the receiving end of some unhelpful comments. As we move into January, you are going to be feeling much more independent and strong in who you are. You may feel more certain and directed about what’s ahead and how you wish to spend the year moving forward. The January 11th Capricorn New Moon is fantastic for getting organized and for making a plan that can support your dreams and goals moving forward. You don’t have to have it all figured out, but just creating a daily schedule you can feel good about is a great place to start.
