2023: Capricorn Horoscope: Love, Career, & General Trends
Note: This is where the summary of the year resides; more details are below!
Transits bring expansion to your family life and inner world in 2023, dear Capricorn, and a fuller, more rewarding pursuit of joy. At the same time, you’re buckling down in certain areas, and more order can be satisfying and grounding.
Increased feelings of security and joy in your home life can be a theme–you’re building your confidence on an inner level. You might literally expand your home or move to a more spacious place, welcome new additions to your family, or improve your connections with loved ones. It’s not the most adventurous of years. Still, you’re loosening up a little as 2023 advances–you’re taking this increased sense of personal self into the world – expressing yourself creatively and perhaps romantically, and generally enjoying yourself more. New hobbies are possible now. There’s more emphasis on fun in your love life than commitment this year.
Saturn’s move out of your finance sector takes some of the pressure and restriction off money matters. Your relationship with your money and things is evolving and will continue to change in the years to come. For now, you’re not worrying as much about your income. You’re also less inhibited about expressing your natural talents.
It’s a good year for simplifying and streamlining your daily affairs, connections, communications, studies, and transportation.
Romantic opportunities abound, or chances to kick back and have fun, express yourself in unique ways, and pursue hobbies and entertainment are abundant this year. Creatively speaking, transits fill you with ideas and plans for realizing a dream. Communication projects, learning, and creative pursuits can be especially successful.
You are radiating energy that makes you more attractive, and, as a result, opportunities are much stronger for romantic attention. A surprising and exciting opportunity in the romance, recreation, or creativity department is possible.

Key Events in 2023 for Capricorn:
Outer Planet Transits:
Jupiter conjuncts Chiron in March and is parallel Chiron in April These influences encourage an increased need for greater understanding, wisdom, and awareness, as well as a stronger interest in the healing arts and holistic health. It may be a time when we update our personal belief system. The potential is high for working on ridding ourselves of negative attitudes that have held us back.
We can be especially interested in dealing with personal demons that have fractured our confidence and ability to assert our boundaries.
Jupiter forms a square to Pluto in May. We’re ambitious, feeling that if we set our sights high enough, we can achieve anything. However, treading lightly now, while it may not come naturally, is advised as it is easy to stir up conflict. We may take on too many interests, activities, or desires under this influence. We should avoid exaggerating our importance or power, whether to ourselves or others.
Something challenges our belief system, and the need for a major attitude change arises. Narrow-mindedness can be a problem. Trying to force our beliefs on others will only lead to frustration. The tendency now is to push too hard in general and to ignore the critical details. Thinking in big terms is fine as long as the practical elements of any pursuit are taken into consideration.
Jupiter conjuncts the True North Node in early June, increasing our desire to make contact with like-minded people or with those who can help push us in the direction of growth and improvement. It’s a time of positive interaction, learning, and guidance.
Jupiter forms a sextile with Saturn in June, bringing opportunities to put our plans into motion. We’re balanced in our approach to new endeavors, seeing both the potential benefits and pitfalls, and this improves our judgment. This influence helps us crystallize and lock down recent lessons learned and endeavors.
It’s a period of constructive accomplishment. We are practical, realistic, and our judgment is especially sound–and we derive much satisfaction from practical accomplishment. We find a good balance between planning and discovering.
It’s also a time when we value learning and sharing valid information from trustworthy sources. We respect reasonable, ethical, and sound approaches. The key to harnessing this wonderful energy is to identify and find pleasure in the simple things that make us happy.
Mars is retrograde from October 30, 2022, to January 12, 2023, in the sign of Gemini (pre-retrograde shadow begins September 3). We can feel stuck on past relationships or situations, finding it difficult to move ahead. Slowdowns, reparations, and reconsiderations are significant in your work, health pursuits, daily routines, and habits. There can be weighty issues and delays to manage related to your job or health care.
Keep in mind that pushing yourself during this cycle, Capricorn, particularly in these areas of life, will only lead to frustrations and slowdowns. It’s time to review whether you’re pursuing your desires, and for considering making changes to your approach to getting what you want from your work, relationships, and self-care programs.
Enthusiasm for your current job or health regimes could wane perhaps due to setbacks or stalling, but the adjustments you make now can be valuable. Watch for pent-up anger and passive-aggressiveness on the job or with those with whom you spend much of your daily life. Daily routines or work may feel a little lifeless until you figure out ways to spruce things up. Reorganizing and editing efforts can be very fruitful during this cycle.
Because Mars is the natural ruler of your solar fourth house, issues surrounding home and family may also (or instead) be subject to delays and reconsiderations or adjustments during this Mars retrograde period.
Venus is retrograde from July 22nd to September 3rd in the sign of Leo, bringing about a need to rethink or reassess our personal relationships. Past lovers may reappear and some relationships may end. Problems with fire, passion, and attention can be hot topics.
We might revisit our past loves–typically in the mind only, but for some, on a physical plane as well. It’s not a good time for major decision-making regarding love, as we might regret our choices later. Think of this time as a process–you need time to allow your heart to catch up with the rest of you, and so do others.
We are called upon to deal with relationship issues from the past. Events occur that seem fated or predestined. It can be a real challenge getting close to a lover during this period. Unorthodox, experimental, and non-intimate relationships may be favored just for now. It’s not the best period for entering a new relationship or making big purchases, because our sensors regarding love and money are not up to par.

The horoscope on this page, Capricorn Yearly, shows the trends and predictions for the year in detail. Because outer planet transits are lengthy, there are variations in the timing of outer planet transits for each of the three decans of Capricorn, and these are shown below the main, general forecast.
Every year, we see challenges and opportunities in different areas. It’s my hope that by understanding these areas of potential disruption and ease, you can make the most of these trends by seeking out the opportunities and managing the challenges.
The following chart shows the outer planets and other points in relation to your sign, revealing whether they are harmonizing with or challenging Capricorn:
Grey is neutral (no direct relationship, but can be picky, nagging),
Pink is challenging (the planet is in direct, challenging relationship to your sign),
and Green is easy and supportive (the planet or point is in a direct, harmonious relationship with your sign).
The largely green graph above suggests a plethora of harmonious outer planet transits.
As is evident in the above chart, you have considerably more support than not from the outer planets again this year, although there will be some adjustments to make in 2023.
Uranus and Neptune harmonize with Capricorn all year. Saturn moves into harmony with you, which is highly stabilizing. Besides Pluto’s continued long-term transit of your sign which is depicted as harmonious but can also bring some pressure, the only challenging bodies are Chiron, Jupiter until mid-May and, for half the year, the North Node.

Overview: Harmony and Challenge of Outer Planets:
Let’s start with the energies that you’re accustomed to: Pluto, of course, is a long-term guest in your sign. Its transit challenges you to change, grow, and improve. It’s been with you for many years.
But this year, Pluto begins its very slow transition of your sign. This means you’re processing and crystallizing its lessons. You’re stronger, more assertive, and have more personal influence.
Uranus and Neptune harmonizing with your sign boost you on the levels of inspiration and dreams. These transits help lighten up the heavier Pluto energy. Pluto on its own tends to pull out your lone wolf tendency, but Uranus and Neptune keep you feeling spirited and supported–they round things out well.
Chiron’s transit suggests some discomfort, conflicts, and clashes, but nothing you can’t handle. Family and home life can need some sorting and healing. Jupiter helps with this task greatly, and the North Node moves in to encourage positive change and growth in these areas.
