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.
Under Capricorn's Sun, people focus on interests like their public reputation, professional accomplishments, career direction, the accumulation of status and prestige, and the honor they hold in the world's eyes.
Fortifying life's essential structures
They are also concerned with authority issues, social and business positions, matters of public image, and their dealings with institutions like governments and corporations. It's a sober time ... without much flash and dazzle -- but a lot of solemn, sensible stuff gets done when silly distractions don't get in the way.
Under stress with the Sun in Capricorn, people are depressed, pessimistic, and unapproachable. Their outlook turns lonely and fearful -- often without real reasons to feel this way. Relationships can be critical, unsympathetic, cynical, humorless. Even people used to handling life's drudgery can be remote and intolerant ... and feel especially burdened by the responsibilities they have to handle.
