Dec 22 - Jan 20
"The celestial bodies are the cause of all that takes place in the sublunar world" ~Thomas Aquinas
Duality: Feminine ~ Receptive, magnetic, self contained and strong through inner reserves.
Triplicity: Earth ~ Practical and Stable.
Quadruplicity: Cardinal ~ It's the sign of enterprising and outgoing. They are the initiators. Capricorns are reserved, prudent and patient. They use strategy instead of force, seeks security, is acquisitive; the most womanly woman, disciplined, determined, and quick to seize opportunity.
Ruling Planet: Saturn ~ Roman god who presided over the sowing and reaping of grain. In ancient times, the outermost planet of the known universe. Saturn represents obstacles and limitation.
In ancient astrology Saturn was often referred to as the symbol of Father Time. This makes you excellent organizers and planners to the extent of plotting long term timetables. Most won't look past next month but you, as a Capricorn, will carefully examine your goals and separate them into all its necessary steps even if it takes years to reach. You learn to wait for what you want even if it means giving up today's temptation for tomorrow's rewards.
Often called the Celestial Taskmaster, Saturn, symbolizes responsibility, discipline and restriction. You are in constant need to improve or perfect something. You are ambitious, practical and above all determined. Your active mind quickly grasps ideas and when taking on new tasks you complete them to the best of your ability. You fuss over details to make sure all contingencies are in order. You don't trust people to look after details. This is due to your constant need to be in control. Because of your diligence you are very rarely credited for your creativity. And you are creative.
An aura of melancholy and sternness often surrounds Capricorns. Your remoteness in spirit is often misunderstood making you a target for being described as cold passion. In certain ways, Saturn can make a Capricorn a little cold and calculating; a strict parent residing inside each one of you. Essentially, you feel you can only depend on yourself. You think of yourself as a real person in a real world. By all means you don't deserve the reputation of being sober and gloomy. In fact, one of you most striking characteristics is your sense of humor. Your wit may dry and incisive but is extremely funny and has a way of erupting when other least expect it.
Symbol: The goat ~ A surefooted animal who is able to ascend the heights by taking advantage of every foothold.
Dominant Keyword: I use
Polarity: Cancer ~ Capricorn is the sign governing reputation, career, standing in the community. Its natives seek honor, praise, and approval in the world at large, but tend to be emotionally reserved in personal relationships. Cancer, Cap's opposite sign, is the sign of domesticity and home life. Cancerians derive security from the love and closeness of mates and family members.
Part Of The Body Ruled By Capricorn: The bones, joints, and knees: There is no doubt about it, Capricorn natives often have beautiful bone structure, but they are subject to stiff joints, rheumatism, and orthopedic problems.
Lucky Day: Saturday Lucky Numbers: 2 and 8 Flowers: Carnations & Ivy
Cities: Oxford, Boston, Brussels, Chicago, Montreal. Countries: Mexico, Afghanistan, Bulgaria and India.
Birthstone: Garnet ~ Attracts popularity, high esteem and true love.
Colors: Dark Green and Brown: Classic, comforting colors of nature and the earth.
"we are born at a given moment, in a given place, and like vintage years of wine, we have the qualities of the year and of the season in which we are born." ~Carl Gustav Jung
Capricorns are flawless. Bwahahahahahaha
More like a mixed bag full of good and evil. You either love them or hate them. The erratic mood swings and unexpected wit and subtly are surprising for the quiet, reserved individuals you seem to be. You also tend to ruin things with utterly irresponsible bouts of flippancy. You are greatly loyal to the few friends you do have. But you can be a bitter and powerful enemy.
Yes, you are the most generous, kindest, decent people of the zodiac, for this people tend to take advantage of you. You are also the most reliable and when you give your word you stick to it. You are the most honest. Beneath your reserve you are sensitive and sympathetic. Anyone looking for a shoulder to lean on need not look any further than a Capricorn.
But…at the same time you are ever so proud of the fact that you are the most opinionated self-centered sign in the zodiac. It's true. Do you want to know why? Because you are always right. Egotistical cruel Capricorn puts ambition ahead of personal relationships which can easily be jettisoned (not my word obviously but it sounded good) when needed.
"If you want something done right, you have to do it yourself." "Don't mix business with pleasure." "If at first you don't succeed - try, try again." Money doesn't buy happiness, but I'll take it anyway."
Your desire for success, money, status, authority and even love is the motivating force for the pursuit of your destiny. That's right being an earth sign combined with a cardinal sign produces a powerful personality geared towards power and leadership. Only after being trapped, chained by circumstances early in life are you a born climber.You are not content poking around down in the valley. As long as there is a top to get to from the bottom you will persevere any obstacles that come along. The goat, being your symbol, gives you the determination and strength to climb that impassible terrain, finding the footholds where no one thought they existed. If you can't move mountains, then at least you can scale the heights. Most Capricorns tend to be successful later in life.
You are uncomfortable with uncertainty and tend to see things in black and white. To the un-evolved Capricorn there is only one right way and that is your way. Caps can be very closed minded and critical and put value only in power and success. You are usually materialistic and marry for money and prestige. You can be very spiteful to those who stand in your way. It is often said that Capricorns will live to a ripe old age just to spite people. You have a great sense of pride and will not forgive anyone who belittles or slights you in any way.
Capricorns are considered the loner of the zodiac, but have a great need to be loved and appreciated. Unfortunately, you won't let this be known. You hide behind many masks and when one is revealed there is still yet another. It may take a long time to discover the real you. You may seem indifferent and aloof only because you are so self-contained. But the very elusiveness of your personality can be very hypnotically attractive. Like a riddle wrapped inside a sphinx. There seems to be a fascinating secret buried in your depths and anyone willing to penetrate your shell of reserve will be greatly rewarded. That's if you can get in.
"It is the soul's duty to be loyal to its own desires. It must abandon itself to its master passion." ~Rebecca West (1985)
Whether it be a Capricorn man or a Capricorn woman both are very private and distance when it comes to relationships. Even secretive, but one wouldn't know. The least likely of all zodiacs to fall in love at first sight. Capricorns have no time to waste on silly flirtations. Love is a serious matter and if one doesn't measure up then one is out the door. Anyone looking to a Capricorn better be in for a long siege. Capricorn women are not easy to win and expect to be pursued, wooed and put into the mood. No Don Juan can leap in her bed and leap out again. If a man lets the issue of sex become a contest of wills there will be no contest. This woman could wear down a glacier. As for the Capricorn man, he may not be the most imaginative and poetic partner but he is skillful and lusty. His interest in the physical side of a relationship never wanes. As a matter of fact the older he gets the more potent. Their voracious sexual appetite is almost as intense as their greed for power. But when and if you do find the one, you're in it for the long haul.

The stars in politics ~ There isn't any. Do you want to know why? The stars can't even figure it out. There is no money. There are no jobs. And the war in the White House is more appalling than I could ever imagine. We are in debt up to our ass and the nonchalant attitude I get is, keep borrowing, keep printing and keep shelling it out. Because, well, fuck we can't pay it back anyway, so what's the difference from one million to 100 million or one trillion to 300 trillion. Chinese will soon be the new language. Konichiwa…Oh, I'm sorry that's Japanese.
Let's look into Cap's future:
~ Start the new year being cautious with money. Oh, and be less domineering with people as they will not appreciate your bossy ways.
~ Lighten up the next few months. Put your strong will aside for a while this should be a time for fun and frivolity. This should also be a time to clear up any misunderstandings.
~ Come April things run a lot smoothly at work if you take the "i" out of team and work together. You start to move forward full steam ahead. Expect great rewards by the end of the summer.
~ August is a good time to travel. Contact with people far away will bring promising opportunity for the future.
~ The next few months are all about social gain. You attract new and interesting people. Other people's project may benefit you so stay alert for those promising opportunities. Risk taking is at you beck and call so long as you keep your head on straight and use common sense.
