Insight for Every Purpose under Heaven

Capricorn

CapricornDear Capricorn,

It may be dark when Sagittarius ends, but Capricorn is the first step towards heading back into the light. You’re much too pragmatic not to given that your Sun is in the earth element. Enough story telling and globe trotting: time to take control and manage the situation.

Earth tends to make you motivated by material needs and practicality. There’s nothing wrong with that. You want to achieve in and climb up whatever social order you consider worthy of you. Just remember that the people you step on while you’re on your way to the top may turn out to be the people who step on you should you fall. And because Capricorn often learns more from failure than success, you will fall many times as you learn how to take appropriate responsibility for your own life.

To be who you are, you need healthy boundaries, clear limits and well defined structure for everything you do, even when you have to be satisfied with it inside rather than outside. Unless of course you’re really just putting in time. Then you can easily look for ways to abdicate. Whatever you choose to do, you always know what needs to be done.

Because Capricorn is a cardinal sign, you are action-oriented and dynamic. You relate to life through your self-mastery and the use and utilization of your environment. You bring a seriousness and gravitas to every endeavour you undertake and provide wise and can provide canny council to all those who come to you for advice.

Capricorn archetypes include:

  • The Boss
  • The Stoic
  • The Hermit
  • The Denier

Proper care and feeding of your Sun sign means:

  • Keeping yourself from becoming too ego-centric about your success or failure
  • Seeking opportunities to lead others responsibly
  • Learning how to utilize personal and interpersonal resources
  • Continually remembering that your respect for yourself is what matters, not the respect that you receive from the world

Love,

Michael
