Prepare for Capricorn Season with Crystals, Yoga, and Essential Oils

Capricorn Season (December 21 – January 19)

Here we are at the beginning of a new year and season of Capricorn. After bold, optimistic and adventurous Sagittarrius, Capricorn will bring out the hard worker in all of us.

Capricorn is ruled by the planet Saturn, also known as the planet of order, focus, routine, dedication, stability, and career goals and achievements. Astrologically speaking Saturn is also associated with fate, karma and time. It governs our sense of duty, commitment and responsibility.

This season emphasizes for all of us, the need to make long-term goals, high ambitions, and to set intentions for the coming new year. It’s an ideal atmosphere to use your persistence and will power, and whatever your zodiac sign, you can harness the disciplined and ambitious energies of Capricorn and use them to your advantage.

Don’t forget time for self-love and self-care during this season of hard work and goal setting. Balance is always necessary, and even more so during the “hustle” energy of January.

We should always strive to find a balance. The following are suggestions for you to draw on during this month to channel your inner Capricorn and harness those hard-working energies without detriment to yourself mentally, emotionally or physically.

Crystals for Capricorn Season

I recommend that you read the following and then take a few minutes of quiet time to consider what energies you need to personally address during this time when choosing your crystals.

Green aventurine

Green Aventurine is all about taking exciting risks, following our dreams, and taking a leap of faith. Its beautiful green color is also a connection to nature and the calming and grounding vibes of the natural world.

It brings harmony, and relaxation, and is ideal for rejuvenating and centering yourself.

White howlite

This stone is incredibly calming and grounding. It can relieve pain, help relieve stress and anxiety, and provide powerful energies for anyone feeling overwhelmed or tense. It is an excellent crystal to meditate with and hold in your hand when you feel out of balance.

Black Obsidian

Black Obsidian rebalances your energy and acts as a positive protection from negativity. Its energies are about strength, resilience, and sticking to things with a will, so it will strengthen your Capricorn’s efforts to achieve your goals.

It is also a great crystal for healing an emotional block and any feelings of bitterness or resentment. It helps bring out your best side and enhances feelings of compassion and empathy.

Yoga and Fitness Tips for Capricorn Season

Capricorn natives are generally considered very diligent workers, and although they are physically resilient, they can also work too hard, burning the candle at both ends and prone to stress-related illnesses and injuries as a result.

Capricorn rules the teeth, bones and joints. If you tend to sit at your desk for long hours you may find that being too sedentary can cause problems.
Tension can also accumulate in the jaws and teeth (grinding teeth at night for example).

Weight bearing exercises will help you a lot during this time. Any activity that helps increase bone density, muscle mass, and endurance.

You can even do the weight with your own body weight, you don’t have to take heavy weights, the main thing is that you are working against gravity.

All forms of movement such as walking, jogging, running, skipping, dancing and jumping.
Weight lifting
HIIT or Tabata or Bootcamp workouts
Power Yoga or Vinyasa Flows (any kind of flowing, rhythmic yoga)

The following yoga poses will also be wonderful for you:

  • Warrior Poses
  • Lunges
  • Mountain Pose
  • President Pose
  • Dancer Pose
  • Plank
  • Tree pose
  • Try to aim for yoga at least 2-3 times a week along with long walks/runs and weight bearing exercises.

    Essential Oils for the Season of Capricorn

    Capricorn is an earth sign, so woody scented essential oils are an ideal match for the season. They promote calmness and grounding and will bring a deep sense of relaxation.

    Use essential oils in a diffuser, soak in a warm bath, or dilute in a water spray.

    sandalwood – An ideal scent to accompany meditation, the woody and mystical aroma will relax you deeply after a long day.

    Eucalyptus and tea tree – Perfect for stiff, swollen joints and general calm.

    cedar – grounded and earthy, it is perfect for the respiratory system.

    Birch – with anti-inflammatory properties, it promotes relaxation and centering of the mind.

    This Capricorn season encourages us to take responsibility for where we are right now in our lives. We are made of our decisions and the thoughts we have had up until now. Capricorn encourages us to take control of our lives by recognizing this and directing our energy, focus and power towards what we want in the future.

    So enjoy Capricorn season and make sure you take care of yourself at all levels.

    Create a balance between productivity and relaxation, and you will reap the rewards of this season for the future.
