Building, organizing, stabilizing
making things permanent and reliable
Capricorn contains a set of attitudes and perspectives that are closely aligned with the interests of Saturn and of the Natural 10th House. As the Sun (or any planet for that matter) transits Capricorn, all these basically merge and come up for for attention.
You'll see them in your views, opinions and behavior, in the attitudes and concerns of the people around you. You see them in the situations you deal with -- and in the lessons you learn ... which, of course, are part of conscious living. The more you are aware of these, the more complete your experience. This is why Astrology can be such a rich and valuable asset.
