Your planet Saturn is on the move this month as it retreats into Capricorn on the 2nd. Saturn has been out of your star sign since March 22nd but now it returns until the end of the year.
Therefore, you may be returning to events which happened back in March, perhaps to bring something to completion. Or, returning to a job, situation or role which you had earlier this year.
Saturn is the planet of authority and discipline, duty and responsibility. Consider where you might need to flex these qualities within yourself or where you may be required to take on a leading or caring role.
Capricorn Lunar Eclipse
Saturn’s move into Capricorn coincides with a powerful Lunar or Full Moon eclipse on the 5th. This also falls in your star sign and completes an important eclipse cycle which began in July 2018 cutting across the Cancer/Capricorn axis of the zodiac.
Consider how far you’ve come since then, what’s changed and how you’ve changed in particular. When planets light up your star sign, Capricorn, this is about your identity, how you see yourself and how others see you, your image and profile.
Partnership has also been an important part of the Cancer/Capricorn eclipse cycle and this month’s events feel definitive. You might be putting into practise what you’ve learned over recent years. Or, making a major decision about a love relationship or a business partnership. This can influence all your significant 1-to-1’s.
Wait until the 12th, however, before issuing an ultimatum or making a key decision. This is the date that Mercury, the planet of communication, turns direct in Cancer after three weeks on go slow.
This often coincides with new information coming to light, which is why it’s wise to play a waiting game. You could hear from someone on or around the 12th and this influences your next move.
For some of you, a love affair could spring to life this month and the dates to note are the 1st and 22nd. In fact, things could develop and happen quickly. There’s a New Moon in Cancer and your relationship sector on the 20th.
This is the second of two New Moons in this part of your horoscope. The first took place on June 21st during the Solstice and it was a Solar Eclipse.
Traditionally, New Moons are a symbol of new beginnings. However, on the 20th, your planet Saturn opposes the Sun in Cancer. This feels more like an ending. Or, something you need to finish before you can start afresh.
The period from the 14th to the 20th is swayed heavily towards your star sign Capricorn. This could be a challenging period if you’re having to make some tough decisions that impact on other people.
If you feel disillusioned by your situation or recent events, turn to people close to you for support or solace. The Jupiter-Neptune aspect on the 27th is key for you as Jupiter is now in Capricorn.
This combination helps to restore hope and faith and it’s an ideal time to seek solace beyond the everyday. This could be a spiritual path, your religious faith or your belief in the goodness of humanity and other people.
Allow your imagination and dreams to soar far and wide and tap into the side of your nature that’s charitable, caring & philanthropic.
If you’re at work, enjoy being part of a team. Venus in Gemini brings the feel-good factor to your daily routine, especially if you’re hanging out with other women.
If you’re keen to improve your finances, the Sun’s move into Leo on the 22nd lights up your joint finance sector. This is the time to pursue new deals or contracts.
Mars & Home
Finally, Mars is moving through Aries and your home and family sector. This is going to be a long transit of Mars through this part of your horoscope – perhaps you’ve got the builders in or you’re working on a long-term project.
If anything, life at home is likely to be noisier and any tensions could flare up and quickly. The key dates to note are the 8th and 27th which feel argumentative. Try not to get involved in petty disputes with your partner or someone else close to you.
If you do want to move home or catch up with family you haven’t seen, Mars in Aries stokes the fires and adds drive and a sense of urgency to your personal affairs.

Thank you for your horoscopes. They really are helpful. I am a 2nd Jan born and have experienced a massive drop in career trajectory after years of glory since August 2018. Perceptions have changed and so the want from life. I know your scopes are pretty much generic but could you indicate whether its the end or is there any chance of reclaiming my previous success story..
Thanks a ton. Be safe and peaceful !
Sally Kirkman says
Thank you for your comment and I’m glad you find the horoscopes helpful and insightful. As things have shifted dramatically for you since August 2018, you would expect this time now to be the end of this particular chapter for you, as it coincides with the major Cancer/Capricorn eclipse cycle – July 2018 to July 2020. Eclipses often coincide with dramatic events, highs & lows. Use Jupiter in your star sign up until the end of the year to keep seeking new opportunities. Be powerful too and ensure you are seen/get noticed. Sending best wishes.
Thank you for your horoscopes.
I came back to this especially today. My grandfather, who is stuck in another city, really needs knee surgery and has also had a minor nerve problem last month. We’re reluctant to go to any big hospitals as of now and moving between the cities is also restricted because of corona virus concerns. He’s birthday falls mid-Jan. When are things going to be better for him, health-wise and otherwise?
Sally Kirkman says
Hi Diana, that is a big question in light of what’s happening globally. A lot would depend on your grandfather’s personal birth chart. Saturn rules bones so hopefully Saturn turning direct on September 29th may coincide with a turning point for him. Also, Jupiter turns direct in Capricorn on September 13th. Aim to get things sorted for him that month if possible. I hope that helps.
Bill Hobart says
Sounds like things are finally moving forward slowly towards our move to Maui. I’m hearing September for our move soon after Jupiter goes direct. I’m glad we’re done with the eclipse cycle that began in July 2018 cutting across the Cancer/Capricorn axis as lots of changes have happened. Thank you as always for your amazing knowledge. I appreciate you Sally and share you on all my social media
Sally Kirkman says
Thank you, Bill 🙂 Sounds like great timing for your move. Sending best wishes.
Alice Ma says
Thanks for the free monthly horoscopes. I know these scopes are generic and apply to the general public. However, I have been out of job for 8 months and never see any indication about when to land a job. Would you please help to give me some indication in this aspect in the coming horoscopes?
Thanks so much and please stay healthy and well.
Sally Kirkman says
That will come up for Capricorn next month. Sending best wishes.
