by Rebecca Brents

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.

Capricorn Is Cardinal Earth -- Dynamic Practicality ---> Earth Signs ---> There are three Earth Signs in the Zodiac: Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn. These three signs tend to get along well with each other because of their common values. Earth is the quality associated with common sense, groundedness, practicality, and a natural talent for dealing with the physical business of life.

* Capricorn Signatures -- Hidden indications of major Capricorn energy -- in your horoscope, in your character -- ... or in a situation ---> Capricorn is about things that are solid. Things that last. ---> Are you a Capricorn in disguise? ---> Of course having the Sun in Capricorn is a powerful indicator of strong Capricorn energy in a person's character -- or in a situation.

* Conscious Living with Capricorn -- When The Sun travels through -- the Capricorn sector in your chart ---> Where does Capricorn affect you? ---> When the Sun travels through Capricorn what area does it cover in your Natal Chart? What house(s) are involved in this particular slice of the sky? And specifically, what house (or houses) in your Natal Chart have Capricorn on the cusp?


* The New Moon in Capricorn -- Capricorn Energy in the Creative Process ---> The last of the Earth Signs ---> Ah, Capricorn!! The last and most action oriented of the Earth Signs. Things that are nurtured and earned in Taurus, tended to and perfected in Virgo ... are finally established and solidified in Capricorn.

* Born with the Sun in Capricorn -- The Capricorn Character ---> Reputation is everything! ---> If there's a party animal anywhere in your character, it comes from somewhere other than your Capricorn energy. The Capricorn part of you was born sober, and grown up, and knowing how to behave. That Capricorn part of you wouldn't tie one on or wear a silly paper hat at gunpoint. There's bound to be a camera somewhere in the room ... or a lurking reporter. Or the local gossip.

When the Sun is in Capricorn -- December 21 to January 19 ---> Doing what it takes to get through ---> When the Sun is in Capricorn, people are conservative, deliberate, dignified and determined. In the Northern Hemisphere, it is winter, after all -- and everyone needs to make it from here to Spring. Consequently, actions and attitudes are frugal, methodical, organized and steady. The mood is serious, practical, responsible, and prudent.


* Earth Element -- The Earth Signs ---> The Earth Signs in Astrology ---> The Earth Signs of the Zodiac are Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn. There is one Earth Sign for each of the Qualities -- Cardinal, Fixed, and Mutable. Taurus is Fixed Earth. Virgo is Mutable Earth. Capricorn is Cardinal Earth. Earth Signs are concerned with supplying, investing, building, or creating the practical substance and support systems to nourish the inspirations and new beginnings produced by Fire Sign energy.

* The Earth Signs -- Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn ---> Earth Signs take care of practicalities ---> The Earth Signs: Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn represent energy that is directly concerned with practical issues, physical substance, financial matters, and the "business" of living. This energy supports, nourishes, stabilizes, and promotes growth -- especially growth on investments.

* Earth, Wind and Fire ... and Water -- Compatibility in the Zodiac ---> An Introduction ---> Every astrologer hears the question: What signs am I compatible with? The person asking wants a list of three or four answers they can count on ... often to solve problems much larger than just a cluster of incompatible associates.

About the Cardinal Signs -- Aries, Cancer, Libra, Capricorn -- The Movers and Shakers of the Zodiac ---> Fire, Earth, Air and Water ---> One for each element ---> There are four Cardinal Signs in the Zodiac, one for each of the elements. Aries is Cardinal Fire. Cancer is Cardinal Water. Libra is Cardinal Air. Capricorn is Cardinal Earth. Each marks the start of a new season. The beginning of Aries marks the Spring Equinox.
