About Your Sign...
Capricorn is one of the most stable and (mostly) serious of the zodiacal types.
These independent, rocklike characters have many sterling qualities. They are normally
confident, strong willed and calm. These hardworking, unemotional, shrewd, practical,
responsible, persevering, and cautious to the extreme persons, are capable of persisting
for as long as is necessary to accomplish a goal they have set for themselves. They are
reliable workers in almost any profession they undertake. They are the major finishers of
most projects started by the 'pioneering' signs; with firm stick-to-it-ness they quickly
become the backbone of any
company they work for.
Capricornians make of themselves, resourceful, determined managers; setting high standards
for themselves and others. They strive always for honesty in their criticism of self, they
respect discipline from above and demand it from those beneath them. In their
methodical, tough, stubborn, unyielding way, they persist against personal hardship,
putting their families and/or their work before their own needs and welfare to reach their
objectives long after others have given up and fallen by the wayside. In fact when
practical ability allied with the drive of ambition are required in employees to make a
project succeed, Capricornians are the people to hire. They plan carefully to fulfill
their ambitions (which often include becoming wealthy), they are economical without
meanness, and able to achieve great results with minimum effort and expense. Because of
their organizing ability they are able to
work on several projects simultaneously.
They have a great respect for authority but may not, if they reach high rank, be willing
to listen to other opinions on things they are directly responsible for. As the ranking
authority figure in a given situation they expect their underlings to be as self
disciplined as they themselves are, and to perform every task undertaken to the highest
standard. They are, nevertheless, fair as well as demanding. Among their equals they are
not always the most pleasant of work fellows for they are reserved and too conservative,
valuing tradition more than innovation, however valuable the latter, and they are often
humorless. There is also a tendency to pessimism, melancholy and even unhappiness which
many Capricornians are unable to keep to themselves, especially if they fail personally.
In the extreme this trait can make them a very depressed individual; ecstatic happiness
alternating with the most
wretched kind of misery which is so subconsciously buried that he or she should seek help
if such emotions become frequent. For the above reason, capable Capricorn should spend
many hours in meditation, gathering the strength to control such inner emotions. The
swings in mood are not the only reason some Capricornians deserve the adjective based on
their name - capricious. They can be surprisingly and suddenly witty and subtle for the
quiet, reserved individuals they seem to be, and they also have a tendency to ruin things
by unexpected and utterly irresponsible bouts of flippancy. In certain individuals in whom
the characteristic is strong, the temptation to do this has to be resisted with iron
self-control. Another unexpected quality in some Capricornians is an interest in the
occult which persists in spite of their naturally skeptical turn of mind.
Their intellects are sometimes very subtle. They think profoundly and deeply, throughly
exploring all possibilities before deciding on a 'safe' alternative. They have good
memories and an insatiable yet methodical desire for knowledge. They are rational, logical
clearheaded, have good concentration, delight in debate in which they can show off their
cleverness by luring their adversaries into traps and confounding them with logic.
In their personal relationships they are often ill-at-ease, if not downright unhappy. They
are somewhat self-centered but not excessively so, wary and cautious around people they do
not know very well, preferring not to meddle with others and in turn not to allow
interference with themselves, thus they tend to attract people who do not understand them.
Casual acquaintances they will treat with diplomacy, tact and, above all, reticence. They
make few good friends but are intensely loyal to those they do make, and they can become
bitter, and powerful enemies. They sometimes dislike the opposite sex and test the waters
gingerly before judging the temperature right for marriage. Once married, however, they
are faithful, though inclined to jealousy. Most Capricornians marry for life.
Their occupations can include most professions that have to do with math or money and they
are strongly attracted to music. They can be economists, financiers, bankers, speculators,
contractors, managers and real estate brokers. They excel as bureaucrats, especially where
projects demanding long-term planning and working are concerned, and their skill in debate
and love of dialectic make them good politicians. They are excellent teachers, especially
as principals of educational establishments where they have the authority to manage and
organize without too much intimacy with the staff members. If working with their hands,
they can become practical scientists, engineers, farmers and builders. The wit and
flippancy which is characteristic of certain Capricornians may make some turn to
entertainment as a career.
Possible Health Concerns...
Capricorn governs the knees, bones and
skin, so its subjects may be liable to fractures and strains of the knees and other
of the legs. Skin diseases from rashes and boils to leprosy (in countries where that
disease is prevalent) are dangers, and digestive
upsets may be caused by the tendency of Capricorns to worry or suppress emotions. Anemia,
Bright's disease, catarrh, deafness,
rheumatism and rickets are also said to threaten the natives of this sign.
