Here we are in the year 2020. A year that feels new, but familiar, thanks to Barbara Walters. And as much as I hate those phrases that circulate around the internet this time of year—New Year, New You, or It’s Your Year—this year might very well be your year to make big changes!
Jupiter is in Capricorn from December 2, 2019 until December 19, 2020 and there’s no time like the present to make big and long lasting changes. Just like in Virgo season, I’m filled with the desire to make big plans and take advantage of the wealth, status, and security that this year of Jupiter in Capricorn promises.
Capricorn is an earth sign, which makes them practical, self-reliant, stoic, and ambitious. Take it from someone who has a Capricorn as a business bestie, this is definitely someone that you want in your corner. They’re steady and practical, and in this time of expansion, those Capricorn traits to help us stay grounded.
Here are a few stones that can help each of us tap into that Capricorn energy:
Capricorns are amongst the most driven signs in the zodiac. They’re dedicated, determined, and made of struggler’s stuff. The season they’re born into carries that same energy – an energy that can easily slip into obsessive striving if we’re not careful. Black tourmaline grounds and calms that tendency toward industriousness and allows space for us to focus on tasks that will get us to our goals in a logical manner.

Because they’re such hardwoods, Caps are very sensitive to any criticism regarding the quality of their work or their work ethic—even if it’s constructive. They’re even hard on themselves when the response is positive! It’s also true that at the beginning of the year, many of us are accessing last year’s progress and setting goals for the new year. Emerald can help us treat ourselves with grace during this process and assist us in overcoming feelings of unworthiness if we feel that we fell short in some way. It will also help to dispel fears of scarcity and allow us to set goals that serve us in productive ways.

Capricorns are notoriously stoic. They have a very practical approach to feeling feelings that is rooted in realism. Either it follows common sense and logic, or it doesn’t make sense at all. This way of thinking is definitely useful in some ways, but it can easily lead to pessimism — especial when they direct it onto themselves. Rose quartz can help the Capricorn in you remember to treat themselves with compassion, love, and grace.
