Capricorn Season 2022: Capricorn season begins on December 21, 2022, when the sun makes its yearly passage into the sign of the goat. It’s the shortest day of the year, and it falls on December 21st, at 4:47 p.m. EST in the Northern Hemisphere when the Earth is at its most oblique to the Sun. Capricorn season ushers in warmer, longer days in the new year, so even though today is darker and chillier than usual, things will start to look up in the coming months.
Yule, the Wiccan Sabbat celebrated during the Winter Solstice, is a time of introspection and renewal as the days get colder. Entities from the spiritual world can easily manifest in the material world due to the fragile veil that separates the two. Since this is the case, it is essential to burn a Yule log in the fireplace and light candles all over the house (yes, you can finally use the candle your coworker bought you for the holidays) to ward off evil spirits and keep the house warm.

What’s in Store This Capricorn Season?
This year, the start of the Capricorn season is on December 22, the day after the winter solstice and the day before the new moon in Capricorn. Imani Quinn, an astrologer, tells mbg that this vibe is perfect for finding stability during what could otherwise be a chaotic time of year. (Hello, pressures of the season!)
The last of the earth signs in the zodiac calendar, Capricorns (Caps), are noted for their diligence, determination, and high standards. This means that in the following weeks, everyone should prepare to reflect on their definition of success and the steps they will take to achieve it.
As mbg’s Quinn points out, though, this year’s Capricorn season will also feature two major astrological players in retrograde: Mercury, from December 28 to January 18, and Mars, which has been retrograde since late October and will not end its retrograde phase until January 12. Mercury and Mars are currently retrograde, emphasizing looking inward and honing our craft, yet this could make us impatient.
In other words, once both planets are back on their proper trajectories, this density will begin to diminish, and we may start putting our reflections into action, as explained by Quinn. She continues, “So it’s going to be a lot of the grunt work toward the things we want to see come to reality, and it won’t be until the end of January that the energy’s going to lighten up.”
Capricorn’s willingness to take on any challenge, along with its grounded, practical energy, will allow us to identify what needs fixing and put in place the institutionalized norms and practices that will serve us best. Quinn points out that this sense of stability will be beneficial during the holiday season, which is, in its way, all about structure and tradition.
How to Work With This Energy?
Capricorn season marks the beginning of the Northern Hemisphere’s winter, a time of introspection and planning for the future year. Quinn suggests asking (and journaling on) questions like, “Will I be ready to move forward after Capricorn season?” because the atmosphere of this season is particularly conducive to that. To what do I hope changes come? How can I use this time of year (Capricorn) to set myself up for success?
Capricorn energy can help you achieve any long-term goals you’ve been contemplating. The winter solstice marks the beginning of a new seasonal chapter, which indicates a transformation in our life, as Quinn explains mbg. With Mercury and Mars both in retrograde, it’s important to proceed cautiously. “So we’re not rushing into things, but we’re thinking ahead to what we want in the new year, what values we’re setting or resetting, and then especially allowing the new moon in Capricorn to be an early starting point to the new year,” adds Quinn.
It’s not always exciting to keep your head down and your horses in the stable, but just as there are times of year better suited to rapid growth and change, there are also times better suited to quiet introspection. The latter is more accurate for this Capricorn season.
When Jupiter enters Aries on Tuesday, it will move into your home and family sector, reminding you that home is where the heart resides during this holiday season. This time of year, when we start to feel more at ease, is an excellent time to begin the search for a new residence, begin some home improvement projects, or even start a new family member. Keep an open mind.
When the sun enters your sign on Wednesday, marking the beginning of your season, you will experience a significant increase in both your self-esteem and your confidence levels for the remainder of the week. Now is the time for your accomplishments to shine. To be the best of the Capricorn, you must start behaving and dressing the part.
Especially on Friday, when the new moon will be in your sign. Use the fact that you are currently experiencing the best version of yourself to your advantage. It is a beautiful time to go on first dates, begin a new profession, or take the initial steps toward constructing the life you have always dreamed of living.
What Does Capricorn Mean?
Capricorn energy teaches us the power of structure, delaying gratification, and setting goals for the long run because it is the calculated master planner of the horoscope family. The zodiac has 12 signs, and Capricorn is the tenth one.
What is the Capricorn Element?
One of the three astrological signs that are governed by the earth element is Capricorn. Taurus and Virgo are the other two signs associated with the earth element. Capricorn is the third and final earth sign, and as such, it combines the firm foundation of Taurus with the meticulous planning of Virgo to create a high-rise penthouse that is well-suited for global dominance.
People born under the sign of the Capricorn are known as the CEOs and master strategists of the zodiac because they constantly have one eye on a five- or ten-year plan. We will feel more driven to take on our most ambitious goals and to establish structures in our lives that will stand the test of time when a Capricorn planetary cycle is in effect. During this time, the Sun will be in Capricorn.
