Jupiter transiting Capricorn 2020-21

Jupiter graha will now transit through Capricorn, his sign of debilitation. This transit is very critical and has to be seen in the context of Saturn occupying Capricorn. Saturn rules Capricorn and is capable of powerful results in it. But his capacity to give results is influenced by his association with the debilitated Jupiter. Both are unable to give their results fully.

As usual Jupiter will show all 8 types of movements at different speeds and also go combust as per this schedule during this transit.

  • Enters Capricorn – 20th Nov 2020
  • Goes combust from 18th Dec 2020 to 9th Jan 2021.
  • Enters Aquarius – 6th Apr 2021
  • Goes retrograde in Aquarius – 20th Jun 2021
  • Enters Capricorn retrograde – 14th Sept 2021
  • Goes forward in Capricorn – 18th Oct 2021
  • Enters Aquarius – 21st Nov 2021

Jupiter is debilitated in Capricorn and his impact is overall adverse, he has the potential to make you miserable in several ways. He represents luck, fortune, blessings, protection, expansion, kindness, benevolence, support from your peers/patrons, auspicious benefits from your past lives, the foundations of your life. The auspiciousness in your life in all ways. All these things in life do not work effectively when Jupiter is in Capricorn.

Saturn owns Capricorn, he gives powerful but not always pleasing results when he is here. He is rules, the karmic schedule you have planned for yourself, restrictions, budgeting your resources, maturity, responsibility, work, no-nonsense attitude, pragmatic nature, social mobility/ status, profession, gains of all sorts, social interactions, etc. Saturn himself occupying Capricorn will bring all these things into high focus. Saturn is a very powerful graha, the force of your own pending karma which demands to be balanced.

They are together in Capricorn. Capricorn is broadly your profession, boss, father, salary income, work, social standing, social mobility etc. So analyse their results together in the environment provided by Capricorn.


First let’s check out the general results. Jupiter is entering Capricorn again this year, the first time he was here, he expanded the COVID 19 havoc. So it is possible that his entry here again may trigger sporadic outbreaks (Do go through the post on Mars retrograde.) In this current Shri Sharvari naam samvarsara, Jupiter has transited through Sagittarius, Capricorn and Aquarius, 3 signs in one year. (The predictions for the year follow the Nav nayak scheme.) Such fast movement is highly inauspicious as is evident.

Wars, famines, emergencies, recession, economic collapses, diseases, civil riots, anarchy, etc are all possible and are happening in some or other part of the world even now. Religious activities will not give auspiciousness. Justice will be denied despite corruption being exposed. Issues do not get resolved. Unnatural deaths of political leaders is possible. Gold prices will stop rising but people are too poor to buy it now. The coming winter will be colder. All seasons in 2021 will all be extreme. Natural calamities will occur. Pollution will be higher, environmental activists will be on an over-drive, preaching. Racism will be high. Hinduism/ Sanatan Dharma will be targeted. Regarding COVID 19, the vaccine should be announced after Mars gets back to normal in Jan 2021. Doubts will be cast on the entire COVID 19 narrative and the USA elections after this. China will continue to break internally, though posing strongly outwardly. For India /Bharat it is a time for hard work which will pay off later.


Now in your own horoscope, you have to analyse the functional roles for Jupiter and Saturn, which houses they are placed at birth etc. The Vimshottari Dasha, Mahadasha and its further antardasha you are in, will have its effect. Finally the transits will fine tune the Dasha results. The current transit of Rahu Ketu in Taurus/Scorpio is very significant. Especially Mars retrograde/forward is on an extended stay in Pisces/Aries now. The planets are going combust and retrograde from time to time also have their typical effects.

One thing to remember, take up only those projects which are related to physical, material, practical stuff. Hopeful and wishful thinking will not get you anywhere. Innovation, creativity, spirituality etc are muted as Saturn is more powerful than Jupiter in Capricorn. Those into spirituality, mediation etc can lose interest, businesses related to these topics will suffer. Jupiter in Capricorn and later in Aquarius will give general dissatisfaction. Take the long view and be patient.

In the list of brief results, if you count from your ascendant sign you will get the physical result, the actual event on you and in your environment. If you count from the birth Moon sign you will get the effect on the mind/ emotions. Eg if your ascendant is Leo, Capricorn lies in your 6th house in your birth chart. If your birth Moon is in Aquarius, then Capricorn is in your 12th house in your birth moon chart. And if you count from the sign occupied by your birth Saturn or Jupiter, it can give a glimpse on the subtle lesson they intend to give you.

Remember that Saturn aspects the 3rd and 10th house from where he is. Jupiter aspects the 5th and 9th house from his location.  So you can add more predictions to these basic ones by adding these aspects. 


If Capricorn lies in your 1st house. The middle phase of the Sade-sati is on for you. You will have the fortitude to bear under stress and you will need it as there will be several anxious moments. Try to get adequate rest. Students need to pay attention to their education. Relationships will give unhappiness. Avoid over-spending. You might feel alone. Travel is a possibility. You might gain wealth and status if you are living/ working in foreign lands to the west of where you were born.

If Capricorn is your 2nd house. The third and last phase of the Sade-sati is on for you. This period gives mixed results, but I am counting on Jupiter as the winner of the Graha yuddha between him and Saturn so predicting positive results. So you can gain wealth, family relationships will be good, religious actives are possible during this time. Giving loans during this period is not advisable. Avoid feeling jealous of others and if possible do some charity. This will make what you really have with you seem more solid, more real. Avoid arguments and using harsh words. You might feel alone/ unwanted. Stick strongly to your moral compass.

If Capricorn occupies your 3rd house then, mixed results are indicated depending on the power of Jupiter and Saturn in your birth chart. Either education, trade, family life, children, spouse, friends etc will be good and auspicious or ultimately you might get cheated. Be cautious especially of friends/ family members etc who seem to be too good to be true. Avoid big investments. Saturn in the 3rd is overall good, so even if problems crop up you have the necessary power to deal with them effectively. If Saturn is auspicious for you then this period will be quite good.

If Capricorn is in your 4th house. This is also called Kantak Shani. This means that the home environment is affected. Your mother, residence, vehicles, comforts, rest, security can suffer from Jupiter’s lack of effective ‘protection’. Bouts of depression/diseases can be expected. You might have to leave your home town and relocate to foreign lands. But you will gain if you do so, leadership roles etc can be available. There is a possibility of philosophical growth and maturity. Try to spend time with your spouse/ children, your schedule may be too busy, do not ignore them. Budgeting is necessary.


If Capricorn is in the 5th house. This time will make you challenge your own life philosophies and your experimental, irreligious, non-spiritual behaviour can increase your stress. You are at internal war with yourself. Overthinking is not good. Your children, if any, will need attention, if they are old enough they might leave the house, eg go to hostels, ie separation is possible. Marital life will be strained. Interpersonal relationships will be stressful. Money, education will be good, you might win prizes but get no internal satisfaction. If you work with your hands, eg are a craftsman, architect, engineer, builder etc you can expect success. Try to follow some established spiritual practice during this period, as it will ultimately benefit immensely in the long run.

If Capricorn is in the 6th house. Take care of your health, especially the conditions indicated by Saturn in your birth chart might flare up. Stress from spouse/ children is possible, take care of their health. Enemies will not be able to act against you, though there will be several plotting against you in secret. You will be very busy, ie will be given lots of responsibilities, if you fulfil these effectively you will gain repute but health might be affected. Your professional/ spiritual accomplishments are more in the background, as you are more interested in serving the society. Wealth should flow be adequate. This is overall a good time, despite the debilitated Jupiter. Here I am counting on Saturn to prevail over Jupiter so check your personal chart. Be careful about trusting others this might lead to loss of reputation, unnecessary expenditures, stress etc.

If Capricorn is in your 7th house. Kantak Shani, the thorns in your life. Jupiter though debilitated can provide some relief if he is a functional benefic and strong in your birth chart. There will be stress in the marriage. The social circles/ natures/ life-philosophy etc of you and your spouse will be different and this might lead to differences now. There may be separation from spouse in some way or the other. Spouse’s health might give you cause for concern. Affairs are possible and this affects the stability of the marriage. However there are possibilities of professional success if Jupiter is powerful in your birth chart. Financial situation will improve slowly. Your family members/ friends might need your help.

If Capricorn is in your 8th house. Kantak Shani position. Saturn will give pain, Jupiter though debilitated can provide some relief, but still it is not a good time. Marriage can be a source of frustration but if you engage in illicit affairs, it will complicate the situation even more. Feeling lonely and unloved can be stressful so try to go out with your family/ friends groups. The spouse may be ill, also take care of your own health. Try to appreciate the other’s point of view and avoid self-entered behaviour. You will be kept busy with responsibilities and might not get time for yourself. You might get property or wealth through legacies/ wills from others if Jupiter is well placed in your birth chart. Else losses are possible.


If Capricorn is in the 9th house. Either you will remain satisfied with what you have gained. Or disinterested in everything you have gained. Either way you now develop your own understanding of life and try to live your life accordingly. Others will find this attitude difficult to understand. This can lead to alienation so do make an occasional effort to interact with others in your family/ society. Senior members of your family may fall ill/ die. Try to perform some pilgrimage or pujas. If your Jupiter is strong in your birth chart then this period can be somewhat better. You might get a long distance job or some gains from long pending issues. Overall there is some hope of positivity.

If Capricorn is in the 10th house. This is also considered to be a thorny proposition, Kantak Shani. He creates lingering issues which give pain. Be careful in your profession, you might be forced to compromise in your job, or be given bribes. You might be involved in teaching type of roles during this time or people might ask your advice. You might get superficially interested in ancient culture or occult etc type of subjects. You might get some special projects in your work. However try to take others along, follow the established rules, dress well, present yourself properly. Being harsh can create unnecessary problems. Health can be down, eyesight, mind, kapha type of issues are possible.

If Capricorn is in the 11th house you can get several opportunities to gain on the material levels. Wisdom and philosophy will also be yours, however for this time you will be inclined towards the material than the spiritual. Respect, fame and general prosperity will be enhanced, you will be very active in society. This is a good time, use it well, several opportunities are going to open. If studying you have to pay attention to your studies. And if you have children you must pay attention to them. If you are a Pisces Moon, this period is the best time for you. Saturn is favourable and Jupiter too. You can realise your dreams during this time, so go ahead with your projects. The current adverse Mars transit will resolve in Jan 2021 and then things will improve dramatically. This coming year will grant you success, fame, wealth and all the things you wish for.

If Capricorn is in the 12th house. The first phase of the Sade-sati is on for you. You might be required to leave your hometown or settle in foreign lands. There will be stresses, take care of your health, especially of the eyes. There may be losses of money, so think twice before spending large amounts. Loneliness, separation from family, arguments, are possible. Avoid addictions, take care of your health, physical and mental. You might perform some religious rituals/remedies which you think will help you but they might not work during this period. You must be careful.


Overall Pisces has the best time, especially the Pisces Moons will fare the best. Leo will face some trying times but overall it should be ok. Scorpio will have to wait till Mars gets to his regular self again, ie after Jan 2021, then things should be better. Taurus should try to find opportunities as there will be some auspicious possibilities. Cancer and Virgo will have an average to ok time. Aries might have to compromise with their morals. Sagittarius is going through the last phase of the Sade-sati so not very happy. Libra will have see issues on the home front. Capricorn is worried about the future. Aquarius and Gemini are not in a good place.

Solutions will be to do some daily pujas or some personal spiritual practice or mantra jaap of the concerned planets, Homa, charity, etc are all possible. Do check out the index page to locate these posts.

You have to tailor these predictions as per your own birth chart. So open the Ashtakvarga table, check the points that Jupiter has in Capricorn, if they are more than 4, then the positive predictions above will hold, else there will be issues during this Jupiter in Capricorn transit. (If your birth rising degree is not at the centre of the sign then you may have to calculate the Ashtakvarga table by hand). Depending on your level of study you can also check out the Shad Bala, ie the Drig Bala, Ishta/Kashta phala, etc related values of your Jupiter to know if he is auspicious for you overall. Or use the Ashtapadmadala chakra. I have written posts on all these topics so use the index page to locate them. Also go through my earlier posts on transit predictions to see how predictions work in real life.

    Hi Tejaswini,

    Thanks for the guidance in making sense of the upcoming transit. I have been going through your blog since the past couple of weeks now and I was wondering how a birth chart indicates that the native was born pre-mature. Perhaps, the parents’ charts must also reflect that their child would be born pre-term? And the native’s DCs D-40 and/or D-45 must have some heavy karmic baggage attached?

    This is an unusual, less discussed topic and I would be grateful if you could address the astrological indications behind pre-term born natives in a post on your blog, TIA.

    In D-1 saturn is in 6th house Capricorn. Its drig bala is -18. Both Saturn and mars are mutually aspecting, through 10th and 4th aspect. Yogakarak Mars is combust having kashta phala 44.

    What you have mentioned about Saturn in drig bala post i.e difficult to accept the fate is very much applicable.

    But I have observed many times that no matter how confidently I decide to give up…. after 2-3 days I, somehow, feel like doing it again, automatically new idea will pop up in mind. And again failure…this story keeps repeating. I just don’t understand from where I get the strength to experience failure again. It seems like it is not under my control.

    Namaste Tejaswini ji🙏
    Thank you much for the powerful insights on Jupiter transit with Saturn in Capricon.

    As i was going through it, came across a small doubt on sade sati… it says if Capricon is in the first house, then it’s the middle phase of sade sati going on.. at the same time the sade sati (shani) link says that this sade sati starts when shani enters the 12 the house from the birth moon.
    I am a Capricon ascendant with Taurus birth moon, so technically sade sati starts when shani enters Aries, correct?

    Would you be kind enough to shed some light into this as I am not very well versed with the basics of astrology yet!?

    Thanks much in advance 🙏

      Hi there
      there are three ways of looking at it
      1. from ascndnet sign
      2. from birth moon sign
      3. from the sign occupied by tht planet ie Saturn at birth for the subtle readings
      each analysis gives its own interpretations

      classical sade-sati or “janma-sade-sati” or “chandra-sadesati” is counted from the birth Moon – commonly this is understood as “sade-sati” in general usage
      so for you it will be when transiting saturn is in aries, taurus, gemini,

      there is a “lagna sade-sati” too
      for you when when the saturn is in sagi capri aqua, it can cause issues with the physical body, like ageing, greying hair, added responsibilities so tiredness, bone fractures, teeth issues, etc often happen. you are overworked that the force of the personality is dimmed etc etc

        Thank you so much Tejaswini ji🙏

        I can definitely feel the effects of lagna sade sati now. Incidentally, my birth saturn joins my birth moon house in my natal chart😊

        Thanks again for your clarification 🙏


  6. Prasad November 16, 2020 / 4:27 am

    Well I am going through Ketu Mahadasha with Ketu exalted in scorpio and transit ketu also in scorpio both in jyestha nakshatra. As if it is not enough my moon is in mithuna with saturn and jupiter both in 8th house. I am not sure how I am going to hold the fort.

    Hello Ms. I find your posts fascinating. Thank you for some great insights in to some rear subjects. I am replying here because I couldn’t find a direct way to reach out to you. I wonder if you have ever thought of why it looks like some people have it easy, as if the life is being served up on a plate, while others seem to be struggling. It would be interesting to hear your thoughts on this some day. Thanks.

      Hi there
      there is nothing to wonder about essentially, you choose your life depending on what karma you wish to resolve in this life, sometimes you live the life of a king who had the biggest empire in recent history and sometimes you are a beggar who cannot afford to feed his children…

      but analyse the birth chart
      the ongoing dashas, vimshottari is the most commonly used one
      the ongoing transits
      and you get the answers to your these questions

      i have written about these questions in my posts on the nature of Rahu/Ketu, spiritual type of posts and vimshottari dasha/transit analysis
      do use the index page to locate these posts if you feel like it.

    Hello mam wonderful post and it always makes sense reading your blog. I m gng thru rahu dasha being placed in capricon in 8th bhava.what remedy can i do to stay positive and strong during this one yr transit


    • astrologerbydefault November 17, 2020 / 10:43 pm

      Hi there
      there are only two remedies which actually work,
      1. mantra-based – you can try praying to Rahu to be kind with you, or do his mantra jaap, and do your daily pujas overall,

      2. Daan-based – you can try giving away items associated with him to him.

      and the real meaning of ‘daan’ is to internally give away the expectations and deal with situations as they occur.

    Tejaswini…Your blog articles are excellent and it has helped me to see myself better. The psychological aspects are just amazing. I am looking for a counselor who integrates psychology and vedic astrology to seek consultations on specific mental health issues. Since you do not do counseling can you suggest one?


  10. Jinesh k November 19, 2020 / 7:40 am

    Hello mam,

    Sorry for taking this page to ask you a question slightly off topic.mam, you said during the ketu-rahu transit which was occured on 23rd september the events which occured 18 years ago ie 2001-02will reoccur. As far my experience is concerned I am getting a feeling that some events are getting re-occured. But the difference is that the events which was occured in 2004-05 is happening again. So my question will it happen like that or is it merely my illusion?


  11. sunny November 20, 2020 / 4:08 pm

    While doing mantra jaap, center of vibration shifted from third eye to top of the head on its own, I could actually feel that shift. This happened twice. You had mentioned somewhere this is not for common man. I wanted to know what it is exactly, what are the consequences.

    Also, are there any indications or sign that we are heading in wrong direction or doing incorrectly?
