The Home Stretch of the 2020 Capricorn Stellium: Your 5-Point Checklist

Two people on the computer focusing on getting their stuff together before the new year.

In need of some great news? The 2020 Capricorn stellium is almost over! We’re here to help you navigate and harness this powerful energy as we move towards the home stretch.

This 2020 stellium has made it a year for the record books, and we’re almost through. But, it’s not done fully just yet!

It ends when Jupiter and Saturn both move into Aquarius, Saturn first on December 17th and then Jupiter on December 19th. The middle of December is when it all comes to a close.

Pluto has been in Capricorn for about a decade, and Saturn has been in Capricorn since late 2017. Jupiter entered Capricorn December 2019, starting the Capricorn stellium.

Meanwhile, we still have just over a month left to deal with the Capricorn stellium. If you were wise and paid a lot of attention, this year may not have been bad for you at all, and you created something that could end up lasting for years, decades, or the rest of your life.


Because the Capricorn stellium is monumental energy that doesn’t come along very often (it’s been about 30 years since the last Capricorn stellium with the major planets, and about 40 years since the last stellium with Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto). Big energy like this gives you the opportunity to do something incredibly impactful with your life, and we should feel ambitious enough to do so with Capricorn.

If you haven’t been able to do that this year, you don’t have to miss out on the energy. There’s still time left, and for all of us, that means there is still time to turn this year into an unforgettable one for the right reasons!

A Little on the Stellium in Capricorn 2020

A stellium is when three or more planets are together in the same zodiac sign. This can happen fairly often with the faster planets (Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, and Mars), so those usually aren’t as impactful (except in the natal chart).

The slower planets (Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto) take longer to go through the signs, so three of them aren’t in the same sign very often. The last Capricorn stellium was about 30 years ago involving Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune.

This current Capricorn 2020 stellium involves Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto. The last time this trio was in the same sign was about 40 years ago (in Libra).

Natal Capricorn Stelliums

A stellium in the birth chart is something that channels a lot of energy, and can play an important role in your life and personality. Success is often found through your natal stellium, but it can be difficult to get control over (especially in youth) until you have an understanding of what it requires of you.

If you were born with a Capricorn stellium, you’re someone who really needs to focus on your goals and pursue your ambitions. You need to have a solid direction, good self-discipline, and reach heights in some way.

The Capricorn stellium man is likely highly ambitious, but this can come at a price to your personal life. Finding balance between the personal and professional is a lesson that has to be learned.

The Capricorn stellium female can achieve a lot in life, and can be seen as very respectable, but may also suffer from detachment in relationships. Turn more inward and connect more emotionally.

The 2020 Capricorn Stellium Aspects & in the Houses


When there’s a current stellium involving the slower planets, this is huge energy for everyone.

They are power players when it comes to what is happening in our lives in the present moment. Because they move slower, their impact lasts for a couple of weeks (Jupiter) to a couple of years (Pluto).

How exactly this impacts you personally depends on what it’s doing to your own birth chart. If the Capricorn stellium was making beneficial aspects for you (sextiles and trines), this has likely been easier energy for you to manage and make positive.

These occurred with points between 22 and 27 degrees of Taurus, Virgo, Scorpio, and Pisces.

If the Capricorn stellium was making challenging aspects for you (conjunctions, squares, and oppositions), then this has probably been a rough year where you’ve had many obstacles to overcome and difficulties to face. But, it’s even more important for you to make major transformations in your life and set yourself up long-term.

These occurred with points between 22 and 27 degrees of Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn.

Let’s go over the general impact on the houses with this 2020 stellium:

1st House Capricorn Stellium (Capricorn Rising)

This has been a huge year for you!

You should be transforming in so many ways, pushing for huge changes in your life, and feeling the start of something completely new. Not just a new cycle, almost more like a whole new life and whole new you!

2nd House Capricorn Stellium (Sagittarius Rising)

Your values, what you feel is worth something, and what makes you feel confident and secure has likely been the focus this year.

It may have seemed like some things were turned upside-down in your life, but it’s given you a better sense of what is important to you.

3rd House Capricorn Stellium (Scorpio Rising)

How you express yourself has likely been the focus this year, and you may have worked to be more understood and listened to.

You might’ve had to assert yourself more and develop more confidence in your ability to speak up, and this helps you to be even more confident moving forward.

4th House Capricorn Stellium (Libra Rising)

Tackling emotional matters and addressing issues at home has likely been the focus for this year.

You’ve probably had to deal with some things that you would rather not, but you should emerge much stronger emotionally and better able to manage whatever you go through.

5th House Capricorn Stellium (Virgo Rising)

This year has likely focused on your heart, and made you confront love issues and release love baggage.

Inspiration and affection may have dwindled at times, but as you become more secure in who and what you love and more connected to your heart, it can return tenfold.

6th House Capricorn Stellium (Leo Rising)

This may have been an especially stressful year for you, and you’ve likely taken on a lot of projects, had to manage more in your daily life, or had health matters to deal with.

Being a better manager of what’s on your schedule and having a healthy outlet for stress is something you should end the year with.

7th House Capricorn Stellium (Cancer Rising)

Relationships have likely been the big focus for you this year, and you’ve probably seen some people removed from your life (whether by their choice or yours).

It might’ve seemed like a lonely year at times, like everyone was being purged from your life, but you’re hopefully getting clearer about what you want, expect, and most importantly, deserve, from others.

8th House Capricorn Stellium (Gemini Rising)

Capricorn had a hard year, but yours may have been harder with the 8th house, and this year has brought out some darker demons and long-standing issues you’ve been avoiding.

A major transformation has been required of you, and it may have been terrifying at times, but it helps you emerge as someone so strong, so powerful, and so formidable.

9th House Capricorn Stellium (Taurus Rising)

Your beliefs may have been targeted this year, and you’ve had to figure out which you’re truly passionate about and adhere to, and which don’t serve you anymore.

Outdated beliefs can go away, and this makes room for expansive beliefs that are true to who you are now.

10th House Capricorn Stellium (Aries Rising)

If you’d done things right leading up to this year, you’ve probably had your biggest year to date, and accomplished some major goals. But if you hadn’t, you may have questioned everything, felt like a failure, and had more responsibilities than you could manage.

This year is absolutely about getting you on the right track and going about your business in the right way, for the right reasons.

11th House Capricorn Stellium (Pisces Rising)

Getting serious about your future has likely been a big focus this year, and you’ve become more realistic about what’s possible, but this might have caused you to give up on something that you truly love.

Think about whether or not it’s something you should work on again, and restore hope.

12th House Capricorn Stellium (Aquarius Rising)

This year has likely been one that was quiet on the surface, but big things were happening underneath it all that hasn’t gotten much external attention (even by you!).

Major baggage, past drama, karmic patterns, and subconscious issues have all been more important, and likely came to your attention in ways you weren’t consciously aware of at the time.

A 5-Point Checklist for the Remainder of the Capricorn Stellium in 2020


So, with just one month or so to go, what can you do with the energy that remains from this Capricorn stellium to make it favorable for you? Here are 5 points you can try to hit:

1. Get Clear on Your Direction for the Future

Capricorn rules the path your life is taking, the direction that you’re going in, so this is an excellent time to get clear about where you’re going and how you’re going to get there. Work on your long-term plans and get serious about the goals you want for yourself not just for now, but for a long time to come.

Jupiter and Saturn both move into Aquarius in mid-December, and Aquarius is the sign of the future. That makes this an important time to think about setting yourself up for your future.

2. Tweak Your Plans to Be More Practical & Be Open to Adjustments

Capricorn also rules long-term plans, so take a step back and assess the plans you have or need to work on. What changes can be made? What little tweaks could be beneficial?

Capricorn is a highly practical Earth sign, so you can work on your plans with a realistic approach. You may have a better understanding of just what you’re capable of, and how to maximize your abilities.

The upcoming sign change to Aquarius brings change energy (since Aquarius rules change), hence needing to keep your plans open to adjustment. Leave room for flexibility so you’re not completely derailed when something unexpected occurs.

3. Work Within Limitations by Thinking Outside of the Box

The natural ruling planet for Capricorn is Saturn, who is restrictive and limiting. This year may have felt extra challenging because of that, and we were held back in ways that were a challenge to overcome.

Instead of bashing yourself against the limitations of your life, think creatively and outside of the box to come up with ways to work within your limitations. Doing so can unlock opportunities that you didn’t realize had been there all along.

This also helps prepare you for the movement to Aquarius since Aquarius loves the unconventional. Start embracing it!

4. Take Responsibility for Anything You’ve Done Wrong & Fix it

Saturn is the planet that rules responsibility, so now would be a good time to look back at what has transpired over the last year and see what you’ve done wrong. Take responsibility for that now.

This does NOT mean to be overly hard on yourself, to blame yourself for things you shouldn’t, or to have a pity party. The point is to recognize where you can improve and then do it.

You have to do so in a responsible, ethical, considerate way. Do things the right way and for the right reasons, and this energy can work for you in a flash.

5. Pick Up Whatever You’ve Put on Hold

With challenges to work through, it’s easy to just put your goals aside and ignore them, but you don’t want to do that. Revisit those goals and find the ones you’re really passionate about to give another shot.

Just because you encountered difficulties, that doesn’t mean you’re supposed to give up. Be real with yourself and what your motivations are.

If it’s something you’re truly invested in, give it another go!

The last couple of months have likely been a road block for many of us thanks to the Mercury and Mars retrogrades, but Mercury is moving forward again as of a few days ago, and Mars goes back to normal motion in a week. This frees all of us up to make better use of the energy available to us.

It can be a lot easier to do something positive with the Capricorn stellium over the next month, so get going! You got this.
