Comparatively fairly quickly, we are moving towards Jupiter’s next transit in Capricorn on 30th March, 2020. As I see, Jupiter’s transit in Capricorn will be the most important transit during 2020-21 as it will be joining Saturn in Capricorn. So, two of the most important planets are going to remain in same sign during this period. So, here is my take or understanding of this transit. At the outset, I may repeat that events in our life happen as per collective impact of all planets. One planet transiting in any sign neither going to make you King nor Beggar, but this one planet’s transit will certainly contribute its mite into the collective impact. Hence, it is important to know what Jupiter’s contribution in the total.
Also, Jupiter is the biggest and most expansive planet among all. Its transits last for about 13 months. This is a considerably long time in comparison to other transits we have of Sun, Moon, Mercury & Venus. So, if a big planet like Jupiter is transiting in one sign for about one year, it is going to make some impact to Human Life. This article is little effort to get an idea of impact.
Also during 2020, Saturn and Nodes are changing their signs. All these are big transits which last for more than an year at least. Plus it will be an year of retrogrades when all 5 planets are going to retrograde. We will surely look into the details of those transits in 2020 through different articles and posts, but we have to understand that Jupiter’s results will be impacted by other transits and vice-versa. Everyone is impacting each other. Hence, we are also going to be impacted accordingly. None is too big to have all impact and none is too small to have no impact. We have to see the complete picture.
So, let’s 1st look at all the important factors to understand this transit –
Jupiter’s current transit – Somehow my approach in Astrology is about experience. So, if a book says something about a planetary position but person having that planetary position didn’t experience what book says then after doing in-depth analysis and seeing all possible reasons, I will prefer to be on the side of person rather than Book as what he is saying is about his own experience. We can’t deny that. So, before looking into what Jupiter in Capricorn will do, it is important to see what Jupiter is currently doing in Sagittarius? So, from Nov, 2019 onwards, Jupiter is in Sagittarius. It has made people more inclined towards higher education and knowledge gain. Jupiter’s transit in Mula has helped people in gaining occult knowledge and to uncover the mysteries of their past. At the same time, we have seen that when Stellium was in Sagittarius - https://www.astrosaxena.com/SagStellium during Dec-Jan, we have seen fire almost everywhere in world. Needless to say that fundamentalism was on a high during that time. So, we can say that Jupiter has given us relevant results even in this short term of 3 months. Hence, we can expect Jupiter’s next transit also to impact us equally.
Jupiter - Jupiter is the most benefic planet and it represents all the auspicious things like Knowledge, Wisdom, Law, Guru, Spirituality, Religion, Philosophy, Literature, Expansion of Things and Elderly People. For a girl, Jupiter also represents Husband.
Capricorn - Capricorn is the 10th sign of Zodiac Belt, hence it represents many things related with 10th house of horoscope like Law and Order, Government, Authority, Organisation, Discipline etc. Besides it also represents World outside your home and people, Fear and Anxiety etc. Capricorn is consisted of next 2 and half Nakshatra, i.e. Uttar-Ashadha, Shravana and Dhanishtha. Capricorn is ruled by Saturn and that's why it represents Fear and Anxiety.
Transit Period – Jupiter will be in Capricorn between 30th Mar, 2020 to 30th June, 2020. Then it will be in Capricorn between 20th Nov, 2020 to 6th Apr, 2021 and then finally, it will be in Capricorn between 14th Sep, 2021 to 20th Nov, 2021.
Retrograde Period - Jupiter will be retrograde in Capricorn from 15th May, 2020 to 30th June, 2020 and then from 14th Sep, 2021 to 17th Oct, 2021. This means that Jupiter will be closer to Earth during this time. So, the results stated herein will be felt with greater intensity during this time. As Jupiter represents belief systems, this is also the time when we will reflect back at our belief system, teachings or Guru.
Meaning of Jupiter in Capricorn – Wherever Jupiter goes, it brings the knowledge and wisdom to that sign/house. It makes us learn things related to that sign/house. So, when Jupiter is in Capricorn, we can see following results –
- Now, most important thing is Jupiter is debilitated here. It is losing its dignity. So, we cannot expect Jupiter to give us its best results as the most beneficial planet. Most of its benefic results will be reduced and may come after hard work, perseverance and frustration.
- What adds to Jupiter’s troubles is that throughout its transit in Capricorn, it is not only debilitated but it is also transiting alongside Saturn. As Saturn represents limitations and restrictions, it will tame most of the results of the Jupiter. I don’t mean to say that Jupiter won’t give any result but results will be reduced or limited which will bring frustration to us. So, first thing to learn here is to keep expectation levels from this transit to minimum.
- It is further indicated by the fact that through majority of Jupiter transit in Capricorn, it will remain under a Paap Kartari Yoga between Ketu and Saturn. It kind-of confirms that Jupiter is very weak during this transit in Capricorn and can provide us limited results.
- Here we can say that concept on Jeeva Karaka and Ajeeva Karaka - https://www.astrosaxena.com/jkak will be like a guide for us as to what we can expect and what we cannot expect in results. It is clear that Jeeva Karaka results of Jupiter will be limited whereas Ajeeva Karaka results of Jupiter will still be available for us.
- One more thing is that Jupiter will be in Capricorn at different times sporadically (transit will be completed in 3 different periods). What it does is that it reduces the intensity of transit and its results. Like, Jupiter transiting in 1 sign for 13 months continuously can give more potential and prominent results in comparison to Jupiter transiting in 1 sign for a few months in an year. So, this will further reduce the intensity and results of Jupiter in Capricorn transit.
- Now, common theme with Jupiter, Saturn and Capricorn is Law. They all represent Law. So, Jupiter’s next transit can be all about following Law and Legal process. It is not only about Statutory Law but we will be more inclined to follow legal ways or else we will be made to follow.
- People can be inclined to pursue Legal Career, Litigations and word of Courts will hold high importance. Understand that we are entering in this phase after Stellium in Sagittarius which caused lots of conflicts in belief matters. Now, this can be the time to decide those conflicts.
- As Jupiter is karaka of family life, conflicts and litigation related with family matters can be on a high.
- As Jupiter represents health issues related with fat, liver & arteries and Saturn itself represents misery & illness, people need to be careful in matters of health issues related with Jupiter.
- As Saturn remains the most malefic planet and it is with Jupiter, which represents belief system, we can still see fundamentalism and rigidness in matters of belief system on a high. Morality levels of societies can go down.
- Although, debilitated Jupiter is getting a Neech Bhang Raaj Yoga due to Saturn in own sign but it is only going to help in professional life. In personal/relationship life, it looks like a tough time. Even in professional life, Saturn’s presence with Jupiter ensures that only those people would get results who are ready to follow Saturn’s ways of delay, hard work and perseverance.
- This transit will make Cancer/Capricorn axis as important one as both these signs will be impacted by Jupiter-Saturn conjunction. So, we can expect events related to the houses where these two signs are falling in chart.
- Overall, this transit shows more results on professional fronts rather than personal front.
Jupiter’s Aspects – We will only cover the house Jupiter will transit as per the Ascendant as the biggest impact will be there. But we need to be careful about Jupiter’s Aspect during this transit. Jupiter will aspect 5th house, 7th house and 9th house from its house of transit and impact those houses. Especially when Jupiter’s transit is not looking too great, we are left with a hope from Jupiter’s aspects as Jupiter’s aspect is always benefic, even if Jupiter is debilitated at exact degree. So, we need to keep an eye on where it is aspecting from Capricorn in your chart. We won’t be able to cover it here as this article would never end then but I can tell you in brief that Jupiter’s 5th house aspect is aspect of Education. It means wherever Jupiter aspects 5th from its place in your chart, you treat that house as where you want to learn more about things related to that house. 7th house aspect is about sharing of knowledge. Here, Jupiter finds the people with whom it can share the knowledge of the house it is transiting. 9th house aspect is of higher education. So, wherever Jupiter aspects at 9th house from its transit, you want to gain higher education related to that house or want to follow things related to that house as your religion.
Dashas – As always, this transit of Jupiter will be more influential on those people who are going through Jupiter dashas. It doesn’t mean that for others it won’t do anything. About an year is long enough time to give some results to everyone.
Houses Ruled – Jupiter rules Sagittarius and Pisces signs. So, Jupiter will take the energy of those houses where these two signs fall in your chart and will express in through the house where it is transiting in Capricorn sign.
Jupiter Return – This transit will also be important for those who are born with Jupiter in Capricorn, regardless of running Dasha. This will be a Jupiter Return for them which happens once in 12 years. All the results of karaka & house ruler things of Jupiter, as discussed above, will come to the fore during this transit of Jupiter Return - https://www.astrosaxena.com/jupret. Likewise, Jupiter transiting over Sun, Moon and Ascendant are equally important transits.
Jupiter in Birth Chart - Jupiter's position and dignity in Birth Chart will have an important role as dasha of Jupiter in giving the results of Jupiter only as per its dignity in birth chart. So, please keep that position and dignity in mind.
Nakshatra – As Jupiter crosses in to Capricorn, it will be transiting over Uttara Ashadha, Shravana and Dhanishtha Nakshatra. Jupiter passing over each nakshatra will give us knowledge and wisdom related to things of that nakshatra. It will also give us results of the house where nakshatra lords are placed in birth chart. Like, Jupiter transiting over Uttara Ashadha will make us inclined towards gaining authority/recognition and will also give results of Sun as per its position in birth chart. Jupiter transiting over Shravana can make us more receptive to learning and counselling and it will also give results of Moon as per its position in chart. Jupiter transiting over Dhanishtha can bring wealth and marital conflicts. It can also bring results of Mars as per its position in birth chart.
Other Planets in Capricorn – Likewise, if a person has planet/planets in Capricorn in birth chart then Jupiter transiting over that planet/planets will expand the traits and characteristics of planet/planets. Now, the exact result depends on the planet, its dignity and conjunction/aspects on it. So, we can’t cover everything here. Also, during the year, other planets like Sun, Moon, Mercury & Venus will transit through Capricorn and will conjunct transiting Jupiter-Saturn. So, that will also have its impact on Jupiter’s results here.
Other transits and joint impact – Last but certainly not the least, we need to keep an eye on other planetary transits and joint impacts being made with Jupiter in Capricorn. Most importantly, Rahu from Taurus will also aspect Capricorn from Sep, 2020 which will make Capricorn as a hot sign for about
At right time, we will cover these joint impacts with separate articles and posts.
Now, the main course.
This article won’t only tell how Jupiter will impact for all Ascendant and Moon Sign people, but it will also show how Jupiter’s role is switching for each ascendant sign and therefore why making a generalise opinion on a planet or sign may not be a prudent thing to do? As I said, this transit is going to be more fruitful for those people going through Jupiter Mahadasha but it doesn’t mean that it will have no impact on others. We all go through Antar dashas and Pratyantar dashas of all the planets throughout year, so this transit will show its impact in those time periods. Also, for slow moving planets like Jupiter, Rahu, Ketu and Saturn, we don’t have to depend on Dashas. Because of their slow movement, they always impact our life in given time.
Please see results of this transit from Ascendant and Moon Sign both. Predictions from Ascendant Sign will show what will actually happen and predictions from Moon Sign will show what our mind desires and how mind will react to such events. Another thing is that when Ascendant and Moon sign both point towards one event that event has higher possibility to happen.
So, let’s begin –
Aries Ascendant or Aries Moon Sign – For Aries people, Jupiter rules over 9th house (Sagittarius) of religion, higher learnings and 12th house (Pisces) of Spirituality, Charity and Hidden Secrets. So for Aries people, Jupiter is more a knowledge and travel based planet. Jupiter will be transiting in 10th house of Career, Status and Father. As it is transiting with Saturn, it is a transit which will be totally focused on Career and Work. They can be required to put extra effort and show perseverance at their work. There can be changes and challenges in matters of career or authority. They can have stress around authority figures, may it be at home or at office. As 10th house also relates with Father, this transit can keep them away from father or it can bring some health issues or other concerns to father. Their own public image can be at stake and they may need to work really hard to keep up with expectations of others. A change in career or work can be on cards. There can be conflicts at work place due to belief system and losses can come to father or career. They can find themselves very hard working because without hard work nothing will happen.

Person may find an old and wise Guru. Person will even question his Teachers, various Religions and Philosophies. That may lead to stressful situations but it is still worth having such questions and stress as long as none is becoming fundamentalist. Education taken during this time will help him grow his career and income during Jupiter’s next transit in Aquarius. At the same time, 9th house is 12th from 10th house. So, it is also a house of loss of career and authority. It shows some stress around authority figures at work including some problems with father at home. Not a good time for career in job setup and they may have some continuous challenges there. Marriage benefits and desires can suffer. As 8th house lord is going through 9th house, this may be a situation where due to a sudden event, person’s belief might change. A sudden event can also bring his Guru

Person may take care while driving and travelling as 8th house relates to Accidents. Great time for higher studies of Occult, Stock Market and Surgeries or any research oriented subjects, in case person is interested in such fields. At the same time, this transit can bring stress in relationship, dissatisfaction in sexual relation and ego clashes with partner or in-laws. It would be a good suggestion to maintain a long distance relationship for the time being. Gemini people should be ready and receptive for some major changes in overall life. Their whole life can be transformed.

It is not a good transit for relationship as they may have some disputes and conflicts coming up. Again, they need to accommodate as much as possible and it would be a good suggestion to maintain a long distance relationship for the time being. Certainly not a good time to start a new relationship. They also need to take good care of their health. Their focus would be dealing with diseases, disputes and obstacles. There can be health issues to child too. . In a more positive way, it can be a situation where you are required to stay away from your spouse because of various reasons, which can be good too, like travelling due to job etc. Great time to educate yourself in Medicines, Law and Job related matters/courses.

They would love to stay at home or with Mother but as Saturn represents long distances, it can send them away from mother, home or home land. Even if they are at home, it can bring some stress in home or with mother. They may lose interest in love matters or their children may go away from them as 4th house is 12thfrom 5th house.

This shows that they will be interested in collecting information and work hard on business, communication and counselling. They will travel far away from their home land. Their focus will turn away from Home to places away from home, so travelling will be frequent. They will start working on a possible business venture. They will focus on their own hobbies and skills. Things/Events related with younger siblings will also remain focus due to stress or illness to them. They can go away from their younger sibling. They need to be careful while travelling and driving as Saturn remains the most malefic planet. As 3rd house remains the house of efforts, this is a transit of putting best effort with perseverance then only any good result can be expected.

Actually, 2nd house of Wealth & 3rd house of Investments are interlinked for them, so they need to find out new investment ways to safeguard their wealth. Spendthrift nature must be avoided at any cost else they can even face lack of wealth during this transit. There can be stress in family setup, may be due to some illness or lack of wealth. Overall, focus will be Family and Wealth. As Saturn will be 8th from 7th house, their relationship life may go through a change or instability. As Jupiter rules 1st house and 4th house, their whole life can suffer due to debilitation of Jupiter and they may lose peace of mind.

Nothing more to say then transformation in Life Path if you are on wrong life path. Focus will be lost from all areas of life and will be centred at Self. They would want to know why they are here in this world and what is their true life path. As Saturn directly aspects 7th house of Marriage, it shows clear stress in relationships and partners would have to show realistic and practical nature to sustain marriage. As such, their focus will again revert back from marriage and family to themselves. They would like to travel far and away from place of birth and it is a big possibility that by the time Saturn-Jupiter leaves Capricorn, they, their life, life path and career, all will be changed as they will find their true life path.

Aquarius Ascendant or Aquarius Moon Sign - For Aquarius people, Jupiter rules over 11th house (Sagittarius) of Gains, Income & Desires and 2nd house (Pisces) of Family, Wealth and Speech. So, for Aquarius people, Jupiter takes shape of a wealth and desires oriented planet. Now, Jupiter will be transiting alongside Saturn in 12th house of Foreign Lands, Spirituality, Losses and Closures. Whenever any major planet transits 12th house, it is closing time. So, understand like this. As Saturn-Jupiter move each house of chart during different transits, they block/delay some results of each house. Then when they go into 12th house, it releases those results which can be given. Balance sheet tallies and all pending matters get closed, so that when they enter into Ascendant during next transit, a new beginning can be made. So, this transit will see them working on all pending matters. Those which are supposed to be accomplished, will give results. Those which are not supposed to work-out will be considered as closed. Additionally, they will be highly interested in Spirituality. They will travel or relocate to Foreign Lands. They may shift their Family to Foreign Lands. At the same time, they need to take care of their health and wealth both as it is also house of hospitals and expenses
Pisces Ascendant or Pisces Moon Sign - For Pisces people, Jupiter rules over 10th house (Sagittarius) of Career, Fame and Reputation and 1st house (Pisces) of Self, Life Path and Life Purpose. So, for Pisces people, Jupiter takes shape of a path and purpose oriented planet. Jupiter will be transiting alongside Saturn in 11th house of Gains, Desires and Income. This will be a transit where they will be focused on making good gains and income as they may feel lack of resources. They will be focused of their elder siblings due to some stress or illnesses, if any. They will have to work hard so that they can earn and gain more in their ventures, as 11th house also relate with Entrepreneurship. There will be no easy gains. 11th house also relates with Large Organizations. They can also relocate to a new place as 11th house is 8th from 4th house, i.e. change in home. They need to be very practical and realistic in money matters else they can face lack of resources. Gains and R&R of 11th house can come only when person is putting best efforts over the longest period of time. Job Setup Career can go for a toss. Need to take care of father’s health.
Conclusion – As Jupiter is transiting alongside Saturn in Saturn ruled sign Capricorn where it is debilitated, most of the results are of Saturnian nature. It is like the results of Saturn transiting in Capricorn. At least I am not expecting much benefits coming from this Jupiter’s transit in Capricorn. Only benefits we can expect is through Jupiter aspecting houses where Taurus, Cancer and Virgo falls in chart.
