Your February Capricorn Monthly Horoscope
Let’s get those 2024 goals in gear, Capricorn! With the Sun in Aquarius and your productive second house until February 18, material and emotional security are on your mind. Many Sea Goats set ambitious intentions in January since 2024 (and your birthday season) featured a number of planets in YOUR sign that shot your personal priorities to the top of the list—for once. It’s a refreshing change for your dutiful sign, famous for shouldering the responsibilities of so many others.
Now it’s time to start building and crafting a plan. What would you like to accomplish by the end of this year, Capricorn—and what actions do you need to take to get there? Dig a little deeper for the answer. For the first time in your life, transformational Pluto will be in Aquarius at the same time as the Sun. El Sol’s illuminating rays will reveal what’s been hidden in the shadows.
Where have you not valued yourself or honored your own worth? What limiting beliefs are you carrying around money and the universe’s ability to provide for you? Get ready for some eye-opening insights and, hopefully, a surge of self-confidence that will bring your life to a whole new level of certainty in the coming months and years.
The biggest shift for you is still taking root. Pluto has been in your sign since 2008 and just recently departed this January 20. You may be feeling free of its intense presence but also a little unsettled by the new level of lightness. Soon you won’t be looking over your shoulder and waiting for the other shoe to drop. (Pluto delivered many plot twists that made you stronger, but could have left you feeling a little shook!) Trust that you’ve passed the karmic tests and are ready to use all that you’ve learned to forge the next chapter of your life.
You might just start that on February 9, when the year’s only Aquarius new moon, a supermoon, kicks off a new six-month cycle of productivity and prosperity. Take one of your big ideas and start building out a beta version of it. If you’re looking for a fresh source of income, this money-minded new moon can help you boost your bottom line.
Just beware a stressful 90-degree square to the new moon from destabilizing Uranus in Taurus and your dramatic fifth house. Your efforts to lock down security could be sidetracked by someone who’s competitively jockeying for the spotlight or acting in a childish and distracting manner.
Gung Hay Fat Choy! February 9 also happens to be Lunar New Year’s Eve. Don your scales and invoke your fire-breathing fierceness as we welcome the Year of the Wood Dragon. Since January 22, 2023, the skies have been ruled by the timid and intuitive Water Rabbit. But get ready to swap out that gentle energy for the action-driven, competitive Dragon’s lair. The past two years have been shaped by the flowy water element. Now, 2024 and 2025 will be wood years, emphasizing growth and expansion. Whatever you plant will grow in abundance, so think things through before you sow those seeds!
On February 18, the Sun embarks on its monthlong tour of Pisces and your third house of community and communication, fueling you to connect with people and get your message out there. You have the energy to buzz around town, engaging with people, sharing ideas and gathering intel. Put your personal stamp on everything you say, post and write because you will have a way with words in the month ahead, Sea Goat.
Got a big announcement or a courageous leap to make? This February 24, the year’s only Virgo full moon lands in your outspoken ninth house, helping you share from the heart. You’re feeling expansive and visionary, excited to take a risk. Cautious Capricorns, this is a day to “feel the fear and do it anyway” rather than playing it safe.
This year’s Virgo full moon could bring an opportunity to teach, travel or publish your ideas. Have you been working on an entrepreneurial venture? Your startup dreams could come to fruition now. Or you could have a lightning-bolt insight about the next big risk you want to take. This is your moment to go for it, Capricorn!
But hold the press on February 27 and 28, two days that are challenged by cosmic clashes and aren’t fertile ground for fanning your feathers. On February 27, you’ll need to show some restraint when impulsive Mars in your money sector quarrels with Jupiter in your passionate fifth house, putting you in danger of splurging a little too freely on something you think will make you happy. Once the dopamine rush wears off, you may not feel as satisfied as you’d hoped you would.
Maybe even more importantly, don’t put your self-esteem on the line in pursuit of a love interest. Bet on yourself today instead of on an enticing object or person. And if it’s an object that can be bought and sold, make sure there’s a generous return policy in the (likely) event you’ll change your mind!
February 28 serves up another reality check—in the form of the annual meetup between the illuminating Sun and your cosmic custodian, sobering Saturn. This one takes place in Pisces and your cerebral third house, prompting you to mull over which projects you should sign onto in 2024.
Since mental Mercury is also entering the Sun-Saturn chat, you won’t have any trouble putting your thinking cap on and taking an honest look at what each venture will entail. The third house also rules writing, so it may help to jot down your thoughts. The physical act of putting pen to paper can be very grounding, plus it requires you to adopt Saturn’s deliberate pace. Bottom line: Don’t rush into anything, no matter how certain you may feel. It’s always better doing one final review of things before you make it official. This leap year is about anything BUT leaping…at least not until you’ve looked things over carefully.
