capricornWhere would we be without the Capricorns of the world? Half goat, half sea creature (and all workhorse!), those born between December 21 and January 20 know how to roll up their sleeves and get down to business. But when are you being ambitious, or becoming a complete workaholic? Ruled by Saturn, the planet of commitment and challenge, Capricorns can go from being the glue that holds everything together, to the chain that holds it all back.

Capricorn, when you’re at your best. . .
…you are utterly dependable. You are the friend who withstands the test of time because you don’t flake out. When you RSVP for birthday party, you will actually show up. With a present. That’s because a Capricorn knows how to deliver. You cringe when other people over-promise or make flimsy commitments. You operate with integrity, and know how to keep a secret. You can comfortably step into leadership roles without being flashy or vainglorious. While you do like to be in charge, you also respect the authority of the overall hierarchy in which you take part, so you don’t overstep your bounds. You’re also fairly self-contained, and capable of deferring short term gratification for a long term goal. People turn to you for down-to-earth advice. Too bad they don’t usually take it.

…and at you’re worst…
Sometimes, you can defer gratification TOO much—to the point where you have trouble relaxing and enjoying the present. It’s kind of like waiting months to use a gift card you received on Christmas to only find out, in the checkout line, that it has expired. Does it ever seem that you actually get punished for being so self-abnegating? Maybe there’s a message there for you, Capricorn. At times you can be overly stoic, repressing your emotions to the point where they are hard to read. You can be realistic to the point of pessimism, since you overly anticipate the bad things in life, and have a tendency not to expect positive outcomes. In fact, if you are a Capricorn reading this post, you have probably barely glanced at the above ‘best of’ section to only focus more on this section since you feel more comfortable with criticism. Capricorns can also become obsessed with their careers, and often neglect the softer side of life—family, friends, a home-cooked meal. And your reward for getting on a power-career track is. . . well, more work.

Handling your Capricorn nature
You have always had a serious side to you, and you may feel that as a child you practically raised yourself. Learn to be patient and don’t be hard on yourself—a grave demeanor may be off-putting in a child, but adds to your authority as an adult. Over time, you’ll learn to relax and be more flexible, silly, spontaneous, and emotionally open. Capricorns get better with age, so view yourself as a fine wine or quality scotch. Since you identify with your work, find a career where you can advance and develop. A dead-end job would feel literally like death to a Capricorn (perhaps because you would persist anyway). There is also one more thing you must do, and it this may be the hardest: don’t worry so much! Your mind naturally gravitates towards the worst-case-scenario, and that has become your coping strategy. In a sense, you have earned the right to relax. And if you ever get called a Debbie Downer, remember that the original Debbie, always pouting at social events, was probably a Capricorn. What I’m trying to say is that it wouldn’t hurt if you smiled a little more at parties and worried a little less.

Clueing others in about you….
You should always let others know that you are feeling more than you are probably showing. You are great at taking action to be dependable and reliable, but you are not as good at expressing feelings. You don’t have to throw a tantrum or speak in a shrill voice to be heard, but it helps if you use sentences that begin with “I feel …” to clue others in. You also don’t appreciate it when your earning power is taken for granted by others. Gold diggers may want to cozy up to you, but don’t lead them on with your resources and be clear that you are not a free lunch ticket. Also let others know that when you are being cynical, you are not just bursting their bubbles for the fun of it. Tell others that giving realistic feedback is your way of trying to help, and they should view it as a signal that you are taking them seriously. Try to find ways of cushioning your criticism, by offering a few positive (gulp) statements first before you slam down the hard hammer of reality.

Do you love a Capricorn?Cap heart 4
Are you a Capricorn in love?

Human relationships are complex, layered things.  Every sign responds to love differently and has needs that are particular to it.  Also no individual can be categorized by their Sun sign alone.  Every person is a mixed bag of astrological traits, but an emphasis on Capricorn in your chart (or its ruling planet, Saturn) will result in distinctly Cap experience.  In particular, if you have the Sun or Moon in Cap OR if you have Venus or Juno in Cap, this article is just for you.

Are you a Capricorn in love?
Great.  You got over the hump.  But the next question is, does the object of your affections know you care?  The reason I ask is, being vulnerable is almost as hard for Capricorn as it is for Scorpio, but for different reasons.  Scorps go around feeling hyper-vulnerable all the time, and compensate by being grouchy with the ones they love the most.  Capricorns just plain get calcified from the sheer emotional pain of life.  You see the difference?  After that first flush of adolescent love—and the attendant rejection—it becomes harder and harder for Capricorn to open up again.  By the time true adulthood is attained, there are usually some walls around the heart for a Capricorn to dismantle.  But doing so is worth it, Capricorn, because the world wants to love you.  Yes, let me say it again:  the world wants to love you.

How to manage your relationships as a Capricorn. . .
Who has broken into your inner sanctum?  Who has braved your dragons and your briar hedge, O My Prickly One?  Give that person a medal because they have seen the real you and persisted.  Now that they’re in, don’t make them work so hard next time.  If you thought opening yourself up to love was hard, wait till you try practicing that emotional openness over time.  Again I say:  It’s completely worth it.  The feeling of being loved and lovable is so blissful, it’s fills in all the little corners of your soul and reminds you  why you work so hard, why you do all the wonderful things you do.  Without that feeling, life doesn’t mean as much and ambition seems empty.  And with that feeling, life has vibrancy, excitement and you are buoyed up with purpose because supporting those you love is what you were made for.  No kidding.

Do you love a Capricorn?
Then prepare to spend your time softening up what is essentially a crotchety, curmudgeonly creature.  Not that your Cap wants to be that way—not by a long shot.  It’s just that suspicion, criticism and judgment are Cap’s first reaction to love.  Don’t take this personally, because it’s not about you.  Also don’t be surprised if it creeps in slowly over time because a habit like this is hard to break.  Here’s the key thing that will surprise you and help you manage your Capricorn with finesse:  treat him as if he’s much more sensitive than he looks or acts.  In addition to that, your Capricorn feels most loved when his burden is eased.  Promises mean nothing; actions mean everything.  Jumping cheerfully into the trenches with your Capricorn can bring a tremendous relaxation of spirit.

If you have Venus or Juno in Cap in your chart, the chances of you dating Capricorns is very high.  How to handle the Capricorn you love. . .

  • Does my description of Capricorn above sound like Scrooge?  Well, wouldn’t you be grumpy if your birthday was so near Christmas that you never got the attention that others seem to get for their birthdays in other seasons?  Pay special attention to his birthday but stop short of embarrassing him.
  • When your Capricorn criticizes others who are not present, take a step back and ask yourself if she’s pushing human warmth away.  Remind her that no one is perfect and help her learn how to manage her sensitivity to other people’s flaws.
  • Assume your Capricorn is driving himself way too hard.  Encourage relaxation and watch for that look of longing.  Your Cap has forgotten how to relax.  Show him gently and without shock to his hard-working system.
  • Work as hard as she does.  Or free her up to be the family provider—but only if she really wants that and not if she’s doing it because she secretly thinks you’re incompetent.
  • When the tough façade cracks, be gentle.  Be very gentle.  Go on being gentle, loyal, steadfast and kind with him for years and years at a time.  No emotional wall can bear that.
  • Praise and respect what she does, but love who she is.  Unconditional love combined with conditional praise is great learning for the little Capricorns and great medicine for the adults.

A Relationship ‘Aha!’ Moment
VenusVenus is retrograde this month, something that happens about every year and a half.  This time her backwards journey is happening in Capricorn and today she conjuncts the Sun.  In past posts I’ve called this “Relationship Epiphany Day” but now I’m dubbing it “Relationship Clarity Day.”  Relationship Clarity Day is a day of insight and clarity about your relationship.  If your relationship has been undergoing reexamination during this retrograde period (December 21, 2013 to January 31, 2014), then today negotiations are at hand, and the stakes are high.  The results can be very good:  a restoration, a renewal, even a rejuvenation of the love that was once there—if you follow Venus’ instructions.

Venus in Capricorn—what are her desires?
Venus in Capricorn thrives from shared goals.  When two partners are working together towards a long-term end, it’s like glue for their relationship.

Venus in Capricorn appreciates structure.  She likes to know what the rules are and to know that both partners are following them.  This allows her to relax and soften into the relationship.

Venus in Capricorn desires a love-bond between two autonomous entities.  Does that sound cold?  It might, because Capricorn (Cardinal Earth) is pragmatic to a fault.  But this Venus gets turned on by mutual respect.

Venus in Capricorn wants wealth, status, bling and power.  She’s got a stamp on her forehead that says, “Expensive, but worth it.”  But underneath all this she really wants what Venus always wants:  pure, passionate desire, a true bond and romantic attention.  She wants to be valued.  After all, to the Greeks, Venus Aphrodite was known as the Golden Goddess.  Naturally, she wants gold and she wants to be golden.  More about that in an upcoming post.

How To Handle It
While Venus is in Capricorn you might well ask yourself, “where do you truly place value in the relationship?  What is really important?”  Enter into negotiations about the rules of the relationship.  Plan ahead—what can you accomplish together?  And more than this—plan to work on the relationship itself, and let your partner know that they are worth their weight in gold.

Worked for, love IS gold.  Venus in Capricorn teaches that love is work and that love, when worked for, is more valuable than love that came without effort.

Begin this post-thread about 2013’s Venus Retrograde in Capricorn at the beginning: Love vs. Gold.  And watch for more posts in the next few weeks.

capricornRumor has it that Capricorn (Dec 21-Jan 19) is the most hard-working, ambitious and successful of the zodiac signs.  This sign is famous for populating corner offices and millionaire mastermind groups everywhere.  But exactly how does Capricorn get to the top?  And how can you, regardless of how much Capricorn you’ve got in your chart, do it too?

1. Eyes on the prize.  Figure out what you want to accomplish and start focusing on it every day.  Always be thinking of the future fruition of your accomplishment.  Goals are like steroids for Capricorn—they motivate you.  If the goal is too big or too unrealistic, you’ll know it, because it depresses, rather than enlivens you.  Trim the goal until you feel excited just thinking about it—that’s how you’ll know it’s the right size for you right now.  Which brings us to . . .

1. Take a practical approach.  Dreaming is one thing, but doing is another.  Capricorn understands the need for a concrete plan with achievable goals and realistic deadlines by which to accomplish those goals.  A Cap without a plan is a sad-and-sorry, going-nowhere Cap.  Write your goals down and really flesh them out.  How long will it take to achieve them?  What tasks are needed to accomplish the goal and how much time is necessary to make it happen?

3. Be your own worst critic—and your own best cheerleader.  For Cap, being your own worst critic is the easy part—every Capricorn has a well developed Inner Judge, a voice inside that’s always ready to criticize, test and deliver a well-timed reality check.  Like a slave-driver, this voice eggs you on by putting your attention on what you’ve not yet accomplished.  The trick is to create an equally loud opposing voice—your Inner Cheerleader.  This voice reminds you of all you have accomplished and tells you how far you’ve come.  Without this balance, you’ll drive yourself into the ground in despair, because goals are there to be achieved.  Capricorn lives in the space between setting goals and achieving them—once a goal is achieved, it goes away and is replaced by a new, not-yet-achieved goal.  That’s just the nature of the beast.

4. Relax into your competency.  Relaxing is not something that comes easily to Capricorn, but every successful Cap comes to realize at some point in their career development process that a certain level of competency has been achieved—and when that happens, watch out!  On the day you wake up and realize that you are actually good at what you do, the Capricorn in you is motivated and empowered.  Reward yourself immediately (remember the Cheerleader!) and plan how you’re going to exercise your competency.

5. Face your greatest fear—your greatest triumph is inside it, waiting to be released.  They are one and the same.  And while on your success path, when you feel fear, thank your ruling planet Saturn, and then run headlong into that fear.  You will find your triumph inside, like a vein of gold that was waiting for you to mine it.

You don’t have to be a Capricorn to benefit from this wisdom—everybody’s got a little Cap in them and these principles of success can help you get on track and stay there.

More good stuff about your ruling planet, Saturn. . .

SaturnWe all have, built right in, the urge to do something great in our lifetime, to build a monument (symbolic or literal), to create a legacy, to achieve.  Saturn in our astrology chart tells us how to build that monument and where.  Saturn in Gemini?  Write something.  Saturn in Cancer?  Build a home.  Saturn in Libra?  Build fine relationships.  The sign Saturn occupies in your chart begins to tell the answer, and the rest of your chart fills in the details of that answer.  But what you may not know is, Saturn also tells you when.  In your Saturn cycle, which begins the moment you are born and isn’t over till you die, is the natural timing of your achievements, fallow periods, times of frustration and pressure to perform.  Get on that track and your career unfolds logically.  Not necessarily effortlessly—in fact, you can count on there being effort involved, because Saturn’s very purpose is to show you where to put your effort in life for the best results.  So perhaps not effortlessly, but certainly your career can unfold in a logical, practical way.  Saturn invites you to practice and promises you will become very, very good if you will only do the work.

The timing of Saturn’s cycle dictates that you will have a Saturn Return approximately every 29 years—once the year you are 29, then again around age 58.  The exact timing will be specific to your chart.  This is incredibly useful to know because it explains that immense sense of pressure, fear, limitation, obligation and seriousness that comes over us when we are approaching 30—and then repeats itself in age-appropriate ways as we approach 60.  There’s a hard barrier at the Saturn Return, and once you have passed through it and entered your thirties (or your sixties), you are a different person—a more mature, grownup version of yourself.  Even those who spend their Saturn Return evading responsibility do not come away untouched by the lines of care in their face.  It’s a true rite of passage.

But Saturn’s times of pressuring us to achieve are not limited to ages 30 and 60.  The Saturn cycle is divided into quarters, each of which is seven years long.  At the end of each seven years there is a milestone—accompanied by the usual Saturn feelings of seriousness, obligation, duty, pressure to perform.  Thus the famous “seven-year-itch” or that feeling of being trapped that comes over us after seven years’ involvement with anything at all.  If you are truly committed to something and you stick with it over time, Saturn will bring you periodic feelings of entrapment, limitation and “no exit.”  That’s just part of the package.  If your response to those feelings is to run away, you will be unable to build anything lasting.  If instead you can push through the fear, stick to your path and keep pushing forward, you will break through the wall of fear that appears to be stopping you and you’ll find Saturn just on the other side, cheering you on, saying, “I knew you could do it.  I had to test you, and you have passed.”

Where are you in your Saturn cycle right now?  Resting and allowing momentum to gather, spinning your wheels or perhaps in the thick of some really big push?  A look at Saturn in your natal chart and the location of transiting Saturn right now can explain why things feel the way they do and in a reading you can learn the very specific dates of the next milestone you’ll be facing.  (Because I think this is really important information, I’ve designed an astrology reading around it, focusing on career, purpose, your life’s Great Work and your own personal career cycle, along with how to use right timing to make career moves–and leaps. You can find out more about that here.)

Saturn bestows upon us that wonderful sense of purpose, importance, and power that it’s possible to have as we pursue a meaningful career.  This is his promise: “do the work and you will get the reward.”  The reward is the respect of your peers, a feeling of momentum, the joy of speed as you barrel down the track sitting on a train that hums.

If you don’t know when they are coming, those milestones—those testing times—feel like pop quizzes, which can feel really oppressive, even punitive.  But they do occur at sensible, predictable intervals.  Find out when—and be ready.

Solutions for Earth-Gone-Wrong

EarthIn my recent post Personality Flaws of the Four Elements I described ways the 4 Elements can go wrong, each according to its own nature.

How To Know If Earth Is Grounding You
When your life is carefully measured from achievement to achievement (or failure), it’s easy to forget how to have fun.  Earth is the poster child for “All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy.”  Your Earth has gone wrong when:

  • You’re such a critical perfectionist that your partner calls you a nag.
  • You’re a cynic, only interested in the bottom line and closed to any ideas that don’t have already proven value.
  • You’ve been called “cold” or “calculating.”
  • You’re prone to overindulging in physical pleasures to compensate for how hard you work or how boring your job is.
  • You’ve learned to defer gratification in favor of long-term goals—learned it so well that you can’t let yourself off the hook during a vacation and you despair of enjoying retirement.

Solution One:  Balance Earth With The Other 3 Elements
If your Earth is distorted, the other elements can help restore balance.  When your routines and systems are so effective that even you are bored, it’s time to break up the Earth with a little Fire.  Be spontaneous, take risks, look dopey.  Fling yourself into something, instead of calculating all its details first.

Earth gets dull and blockish without the lightness of Air.  Air encourages brainstorming sessions and crazy ideas—some may sound just like empty theories, but others will, with the time and testing Earth provides, prove useful in the end.  But you have to open your ears and listen first.

Water fertilizes Earth in a wonderful way, bringing warmth, emotion, compassion and sensitivity Earth does not naturally possess.  Too many late nights at the office?  Balance them with cozy family time.  Gotten too controlled or controlling?  Nothing like a nice emotional outburst to break down the walls.  Oh, and don’t forget to be vulnerable.

Solution Two:  Emphasize Healthy Earth
Healthy Earth practices can eliminate the need for compensatory, negative Earth behaviors.  Here are some examples of “Earth-Fu:”

  • Pay close attention to your bodily needs and engage in rigorous physical self-care.
  • Feed yourself delicious, homemade, organic, healthy food on a regular basis.  It tastes best when you cooked it yourself.
  • Organize your home, your office and your projects in ways that allow you to streamline, be effective and stop worrying.  Work smarter, not harder.
  • Fall in love with this physical world:  get out in nature more, breathe clean air and surround yourself with trees.

Set achievable goals and be consistent about rewarding yourself (even if it’s just a mental pat on the back) when you succeed.  When you become preoccupied with your failures, wrench your attention away from them and instead put it on what you’ve done right.

Coming up next:  Does Air Have You Lost In A Cloud?

CapricornWhy does it seem that Capricorns live life backwards?  Strong Capricorn types have a tendency to act like little old men and women when they are children, and to only allow themselves to express their inner child when they are almost too old to enjoy it.  Why is this so backwards for Capricorns?

Capricorns take life way too seriously when they are young.  They judge themselves harshly, measuring themselves against adults with much more experience.  Their expectations are high and they become frustrated when they don’t measure up.

Child Caps crave respect and want to be treated like adults; they see adults as having powers and privileges that they want to have.  Young Caps will eagerly take on adult responsibilities in order to garner respect from others and to be a part of the adult world.  They tend to be interested in what the adults are doing and will seek out friendships with people outside their peer group on purpose.  They may feel downright uncomfortable with people their own age.  As Capricorns age, they find that this comfort with age difference continues and they can enjoy friendships with people much younger than themselves.  They like helping younger people along and mentoring the next generations.

It’s as if the life of a Capricorn is on a time-release mechanism.  They are willing to put in a lot of hard work with little reward while they are young.  Some young Caps have this thrust upon them (many with strong Capricorn or Saturn influences in their charts are oldest or only children) and have to grow up fast and help out in their family early in life.  But whether it’s compulsory or voluntary, this hard work helps them build the self-confidence necessary to blossom into adulthood.  And by the time of their Saturn return (around age 30), your typical Capricorn is beginning to reap the rewards of all that effort.  This is just the first phase, and most Caps will experience another cycle of work-and-reward which culminates around their second Saturn return (age 58 or so), as they are moving into retirement.

In his 30’s, a Cap will finally begin to let go of the restrictions and limitations he’s imposed upon himself.  He’ll begin to allow himself to relax into life a little more.  He’ll start growing into his own skin and let himself have feelings spontaneously in a way he never did before.  This is if, and not until, he’s earned his own respect.

Caps have their old age to look forward to; if they continue to do what’s needed to earn their own self-respect as they age, they will also continue learning to relax, have fun, be soft and emotionally available, play and enjoy.  Other signs do not have to learn this stuff, but Capricorns do.  It makes them feel odd and backward.  Even the youngsters can be kind of curmudgeonly.  But hush—they’ll grow out of it.

You’ve probably already figured out the good news inherent in this description of the Cap temperament:  if Caps have already gotten the hard parts of life over with at the beginning, it stands to reason that life just gets easier.  There’s some truth to this.  By the time they are elders, Capricorns have the ability to really let go and delight in simple things in a childlike way.  Capricorns like to pay at the door—that way they can really relax and enjoy the show.

Capricorn 1That should be fairly obvious:  like a creampuff, a Capricorn is crusty on the outside and soft, gooshy and sweet in the middle.  Capricorn comes on as tough, boundaried, strong, even armored.  But once you get past the crusty exterior, inside the heart and soul of your favorite Capricorn you’ll find a wealth of affection, sentimentality and softness.

But how do you get past the initial coolness, skepticism and reserve?  How do you win a Capricorn over?

It begins when you show respect.  Every Capricorn has secretly longed to be truly, deeply respected, ever since they were small.  In fact, the younger they are, the more they need it; as they age, they naturally feel more respect for themselves, and thus need it less from others.  But for any Capricorn, respect is the way to begin and without it you’ll get nowhere.  Honor and validate their boundaries; they have them for a reason.  If everyone knew what a soft-touch your local Capricorn really is, he would be under siege all the time and he knows it.  Let your Capricorn friend know that you will wait patiently outside the walls forever if need be.  Then watch the portcullis go up!

The next step is to be worthy of respect, yourself.  No Capricorn will suffer fools gladly.  Here are some more clues about what exactly that means . . .

Do what you say you’ll do. Yep, it’s that simple.  If you make outrageous promises, or even tiny promises, that you do not keep, no Cap can take you seriously.  Promise what you know you can do and then do that.  To some readers, this may sound boring, but to Capricorns it is behavior worthy of their interest.  And believe me, Capricorn interest is worth garnering.

Have appropriate boundaries. Don’t blurt out your whole life-story or dissolve into tears on first acquaintance.  And definitely don’t ask for a loan, even a small one.  Wait a reasonable amount of time before deepening your acquaintance.  There’s no underestimating the power of propriety in the mind of a Capricorn.

Mind your reputation. Don’t act like a fool in public (and watch the public displays of affection!).  Note that making your Capricorn look foolish by association with you will surely drive them away.

Make a difference in the world. Do something important.  Make a contribution.  Making money is generally attractive to Capricorns, but that’s not the whole story.  Wealth, prestige, power and status may be attention-grabbers in the mind of your Capricorn buddies, but what they are really interested in is what you did to get to the position you are in.  Did you build a company from scratch?  Did you patent something useful?  Do you serve others in a meaningful way?  Are you truly expert in what you do?  Do you conduct yourself in a professional way?  These are the things that matter.

So let’s say you’ve done a few of these things and gotten the interest of your local Capricorn.  What now?  Know that once a Cap lets you in, they let you in all the way, therefore be gentle.  The trust of a Capricorn is hard-earned, so once you’ve been let inside the high-security, password-protected, Capricorn inner sanctum, tread lightly and know that you have achieved a position of true privilege.  Abuse it at your peril.  Every Capricorn secretly bears a stamp on their forehead that says, “Expensive, but worth it.”
