Pluto entered Capricorn in 2008, Jupiter enters Capricorn on December 2, 2019. Saturn entered Capricorn on December 19, 2017 (see below for additional details). Saturn and Jupiter are planets visible to the naked eye and Jupiter is catching up to Saturn over the next few weeks and months.
These two outer planets are alerting us to the possibilities around creating new ways of creating our physical reality that is effective, efficient and sustainable. In essence, how to do less and accomplish more that will serve the generations to come.
Unfortunately part of what our current culture has created is what I like to call the Doing Addiction. There seems to be a mistaken belief that the more we do, the more we accomplish and achieve, the more value and significance we have. When we are driven by the Doing Addiction it can interfere with healthy and deeply fulfilling connections with family and community.
Jupiter and Saturn are reminding us it is vital to cultivate our awareness around how we may be Doing Addicted so we can change it.
Doing (taking action) is a natural part of life similar to the necessity for eating. However, both doing and eating can also become an addiction.
An addiction is anything that we do to excess in ways that are harmful to our health and well-being. There are obvious addictions such as drugs, alcohol, gambling, etc… Most of us might recognize a Doing Addiction as someone who is a work-a-holic. However, the Doing Addiction often shows up in subtle ways that are more challenging to spot.
For example, the most philanthropic work a person might engage in doing, may be driven by a Doing Addiction as a way to avoid feelings or having a personal life.
Underlying the Doing Addiction are three primary fears.
- Fear of not having enough
- Fear of not being good enough (feeling of having to prove yourself)
- Fear of Facing your Fears and having to really Feel your Feelings…

The Capricorn Archetype is represented most accurately by the Circle of Grandmothers, Grandfathers, Wise Ones and Elders. These are the political and other leaders, managers, counselors and teachers who are most effective when they are paying attention to what really works and letting go of what no longer works. When healthy the primary interest of this archetype is how effective and efficient the systems they operate within are functioning and how those systems honor the Earth and the ancestors, as well as serving the future generations going forward.
