Capricorn New Moon is always good for planning and this year it will be even stronger because it is a Super Moon. The Moon’s orbit comes closest to the Earth (perigee) and the quality of the lunar energy is more intense on Monday 3rd January at 5:33am AEDT.
The Capricorn New Moon encourages us to think big and be practical. It allows us to broaden the scope of our enterprise. We can take on more responsibility and gain more authority under the influence of Capricorn energy.
Goal-oriented and ambitious Capricorn finds strength in structure, organisation, and planning. It understands the need for restraint. If you have a goal in mind for 2022, now is the time to plan the steps to attain it.
This article provides key dates for the major transits throughout the year and tips for using these energies in your planning approach.
Strengthening your people skills
From 1 January 2022, Jupiter in Pisces will powerfully expand your ability to feel empathy, compassion, and spiritual connection with others. This will be a huge aid to communication, both in speaking your truth, and in listening deeply to other people. You are likely to experience growth in this area of your life. This is a good time to learn new people skills.
Your imagination will also be activated under this transit. How can you allow your creative fantasies to become part of your life and business? This is the perfect time to use music, art, poetry, and psychic or spiritual practice as tools to tap into the psyche of your customer base and to find your true purpose. Be sure to include a few of these activities in your plan for 13th April 2022, when a world-wide spiritual awakening is possible (Jupiter aligns with Neptune in Pisces).
If your work involves people, then this transit will be particularly helpful. As your intuition heightens, communication and creativity will improve and you will enjoy engaging with others because it enlivens your true nature. When you integrate your soul into all that you do, the relationships that you develop have a deeper quality and this is possible now. This will ultimately lead to more personal satisfaction and happiness.

Initiating new ideas and actioning your plans
From 11 May 2022, the pioneering spirit of Jupiter in Aries will push us out of the emotional realm and into action. This initiating energy is excellent for starting a new project, launching a plan, promoting a new business or product, or taking an exciting adventure. Aries is a cardinal fire sign renowned for the capacity to shift energy to new heights.
This part of the Jupiter cycle has a competitive quality and is good for entering a new market, starting a persuasive advertising campaign, or setting yourself a huge challenge that you would not usually attempt. Tap into the surging power that Jupiter in Aries has to offer. The changes you are most likely to notice during this transit include:
- willingness to step outside your comfort zone
- impatience to get going with your new ideas
- ability to exert energy on anything fresh and adventurous
- frustration if blockages or delays occur
- more assertiveness and competition than usual
Try to start any new projects before 29 July or after 21 December 2022 (Jupiter retrogrades then returns to Pisces). It is recommended to use this period for thinking about new projects and ideas that can be started in 2023. The period 28 October – 20 December 2022 will be particularly good for injecting intuition and imagination into these ideas (Jupiter in Pisces).

Expressing your unique skills
The boundary-maker planet, Saturn in Aquarius continues the mission it started in April 2020. Challenging out-dated structures of authority such as governments, financial institutions, and the religious organisations to incorporate humanitarian values such as equality, freedom, and innovation has not been easy. On a personal level, this transit can enable individuals to bring their unique skills into the foreground and let go of restrictions that previously silenced them. An example is the 2021 Australian of the Year: social activist and advocate, Grace Tane. Watch her powerful National Press Club speech here.
Under the influence of Saturn in Aquarius, it has been possible to implement radical ideas into business. This energy allows you to follow your dreams in a structured and responsible way. Network group She’s the Boss, which supports and nourishes female founders, is an excellent expression of this energy. The wide range of successful business women in this network demonstrates this cosmic energy at work. Be quick to take advantage of this transit, which ends in 15 months (March 2023) when Saturn in Pisces will generate a completely different boundary experience.

Shifting your sense of what is possible
Uranus in Taurus is a paradoxical energy due to the fact that the planet of unexpected and sudden shifts is traversing a fixed earth sign. The physical changes that have been occurring around our planet since March 2019 can be attributed to this transit, which will continue until May 2026. Policy changes around climate change are not quick enough to make a difference. We can expect more unwelcome natural disasters this year. The only recourse is to alter our personal response to this situation. Taurus is ruled by Venus, therefore relationships are vitally important.
Each individual has their own story about how this transit has influenced their life. Uranus seldom removes what is necessary. It often takes away restrictions to allow us the freedom to become a truer version of our self. If you have lost something or someone that you thought you could not live without, consider how this passing has allowed you to challenge yourself in new ways. Would you be where you are now if this change had not occurred?
The theme of Uranus in Taurus is practical authenticity. This can be expressed through our values about the physical environment and about personal security. During 2022, the direct motion of Uranus can be used to advance your practical innovative energy. For example, build or renovate a house, garden or temple; be constructive and decide how to join the war on waste; support people who have lost something or someone dear to them and encourage them to envision their future self. During the retrograde period, reflect on how these changes have affected your own and other people’s lives.
Uranus in Taurus:
- Retrograde 1 January – 18 January 2022
- Direct 19 January – 25 August
- Retrograde 25 August – 31 December 2022
Dwelling in your spiritual aspects
Transpersonal planet Neptune in Pisces is still traversing its own sign. During this transit, which began in 2012 and will last until 2026, we have begun to understand how the spectrum of enlightenment and escapism operates in the world today. For some people, this period has opened up a new consciousness about being connected to the whole. Life is less ego-driven and more focussed on service, compassion, and give and take.
For other people, there may be confusion about the amount of suffering in the world and a sense of being lost. These experiences can be overwhelming and may cause anxiety, depression, and other forms of mental illness. If individual trauma is not healed during this period, numbing the emotions with substances or behaviours will be favoured.
During 2022, spend time in meditation and inner reflection on the spiritual aspects of your life, or enter therapy to undo childhood trauma. Astrology Counselling provides an alternative approach to personal growth and healing.
A simple and effective tool for this transit energy is the Gratitude Journal. This is an excellent way to engage with your spirit and remain positive about life. In a small book or diary, write down 3 things that you are grateful for each day. Record your thoughts and dreams on the same page as your gratitude and periodically look back the pages to see how your year is progressing.

Transforming your energy
Pluto in Capricorn continues to move very slowly through the last degrees of this sign, finishing off what it started in 2009 and not leaving until 2024. Losses, endings and beginnings that ultimately transform and purify life have been happening on a large scale. This transit has been putting pressure on the government, financial systems, large institutions and physical structures to change. Out-dated frameworks and ideologies have been challenged and those that have been using corrupt practices have been exposed and fined or jailed (Crown Casinos).
On Christmas Day 2021, a new combination of transit energies in Capricorn began to put pressure on our personal relationships (Venus retrograde conjoined Pluto). This will be help you to evaluate your friendships and your business partnerships. You may let go of relationships that do not support your life purpose. You may also be examining your values to check that they are aligning with your relationships.
From 17 February 2022 until 6 March 2022, passions are likely to run hot in relationships (Venus conjoins Mars; Mars conjoins Pluto; Venus conjoins Pluto). This is the final stage of a cleansing process, which has the potential to transform your energy and release the capacity for better relationships into the future. Like cleaning dirty windows, the task may be unpleasant but the end result will be sparklingly clear.
