Capricorn: The Ambitious Sea Goat (December 22 – January 20)
The Seagoat is duty bound, ambitious, serious with single minded focus. Their drive makes them efficient, faithful, even sensual, yet they tend toward showing the conservative/traditional side. Capricorn are prudent, realistic, formal, methodical, disciplined and traditional.
They can also sometimes be rigid, suspicious, status–seeking, demanding, insensitive, inhibited and saturnine, and be prone to coldness, conservatism, materialism, and dullness.
It is within their nature to be more cautious, conventional, and hardworking. While at the same time, they need to be persevering, and self-reliant in order to be businesslike and career oriented. This gives them an air of authoritative, conscientious, and competent.

The houses of the horoscope represent different areas of life, described in terms of physical surroundings as well as personal life experiences. The placement of a planet or zodiac sign in a house will determine, to a large degree, the area of life in which it acts, and the goals and activities on which its drive or impulse will be focused.
Your Planet Saturn
To ancient astrologers, the planets represented the will of the Gods and their influence on human affairs. To modern astrologers, the planets represent basic drives and impulses within the human psyche. These drives express themselves as different qualities throughout the twelve signs of the zodiac and in different circles of life through the twelve houses.
Medical astrology, traditionally known as Iatromathematics, is an ancient medical system of healing connecting the body and disease with the twelve astrological signs. Each astrological sign, along with the sun, moon, and planets are associated with different parts of the human body that correlate to disorders of its associated muscles, nerve systems and organs.
The system of medical astrology has been used to codify the associations of the signs of the zodiac with the parts of the body as follows: Capricorn – knees, joints, skeletal system, skin, teeth, hair.
The planets are also associated with certain portions and functions within the body: Saturn – skin, hair, teeth, bones, the body’s defenses, spleen.
In medical astrology, Capricorn is ruled by the knees, joints, skeletal system, skin, teeth, hair.
Capricorn apparently holds the key to longevity! Your ruling planet of Saturn is known as the Father of Time or (Father Time). The fact that your sign is associated with the body’s defense or immune system explains much of this. For the majorities of Capricorn, the older you get, the younger you look. In fact the greatest amount of people between 90 and 100 years old (nonagenarians) and those 100 years old and over (centenarians) are found under the sign of Capricorn.
Your weakest link, are all issues related to the kidneys (in both Western medicine and Chinese Medicine). The kidneys rule the teeth, bones, hair and joints and it is here that you can have the greatest problems. That is why keeping your kidneys tonified and boosting any deficiencies are very important.
Joint pain, inflammation and arthritis are something you must pay attention to early on in your life. Especially problems with your knees can be a recurring problem. Capricorns are also prone to skin disorders, especially those aggravated by stress.
Conditions such as acne, eczema, psoriasis and dermatitis can all be issues that arise. As always, a proper diet (for you) and low impact exercise such as cycling, Pilates, golfing, walking, low impact aerobics and stretching are all important.
Your healing color is green.
Capricorn is yin in nature. Yin energy is more feminine, is related to dark, moon, earth, north, west and right. Yin signs are the even numbered ones. Those belonging to yin energy have a tendency to be more passive and introverted.

The Lucky Capricorn
Luck. What exactly is luck? Is luck being at the right place at the right time? Finding that lucky penny? Always landing on your feet? Finding a four leaf clover? Discovering bird droppings on your shoulder? What ever your idea of luck, research has found that people are divided.
Capricorns are lucky people. Robust and resilient, you know how to keep your feet on the ground and reach for those stars. Your element Earth ensures that you stay grounded while your cardinal quality propels you forward. You create your own luck. You are too calculating to wait around to “see what happens”. You leave nothing for chance.
You vibrate to the number eight – associated to Saturn – ruler of Capricorn. Saturn is vulnerability, with lessons to be learned in life.
You are not a free spirit. You create restriction, limitation, fear, and structure. Saturday is your day within the natural cycle to work on responsibility issues and task work. Your number eight represents power. An 8 crystal will stimulate the power to assert and express yourself if you so need it. Your wisdom is learning through experience. Stability, patience and responsibility make you who you are. Now get lucky!
Money and Capricorn
Money is your reward for hard work. Some important values about money include giving, sharing, accepting compliments and recognizing new beginnings.
Capricorns are economical. You are able to save and understand the value of money. Your planet, Saturn, is the task master of the Universe and because of this, you have great discipline and can be very responsible with your money.
You are not a risk taker when it comes to your money. You stash, hoard and save every penny in order to create a health nest egg. This is what helps you stay centered when it comes to cash! Now get money!
Capricorn and Career
Abundance is a long lasting, enduring enjoyment of life. It is being in love with living. Your career should be something you absolutely love doing. Since we spend the majority of our lives working, why would you ever just do something to get by. Life is much too short to not be doing something that brings you joy and happiness, reward and fulfillment, pride and satisfaction!
Capricorns are ambitious. You will take charge right and get the job done. You organize and take action. This is your expertise, making order out of chaos. You are an instigators who is ready to forge ahead with plans, and attract those that can support your efforts.
You are a born leader, tending towards being outgoing as you engaged with the world in a dynamic way. You make sure you are first, positioned at the starting line so that you finish with flying colors.
Wealth, power and money are your head-strong goals. You often set the tone and as one of the “scout signs”, you govern creativity. You are restless, active, self-motivated, ambitious, and often the leader in your community. Now find success!
Happiness and Capricorn
Happiness is an expression of gratitude. Research has found that a great deal of unhappiness stems from negative thoughts. Happiness is not just a life lived by accumulating moments of pleasure. Happiness is a rhythm, an order, a balance. We choose to be happy.
Capricorn can be happy people. Your key word for happiness is success! You are at your best when you are on top of your game! When you are not at the top of your game, you can be the most demeaning, demoralizing, and judgmental.
If you do not get your way, you can be down right miserable, taking your frustrations out on other. No one is excluded. Your family, friends, co-workers… who ever you feel is the cause of your demise, you become resentful, unforgiving and bitter. Consider a slice of humble pie! Balance is the key word for those struggling with these kind of inadequacies.
Try controlling your control issues. This is where you get in the way of yourself and then you can really look bad. Your happiness is absolutely driven by your accomplishment of tasks. Just remember, slow and steady wins the race. Your happiness should not be judged by how much you have, but by how much you chose to enjoy. Now find happiness!
Sex and Capricorn
Our “sexual-esteem” or positive reverence for and confidence in our capability to experience our sexuality in a satisfying and enjoyable way are all a part of our sexual health and a very important part of our well being. Our most sexual organ is the brain! Our minds can create the most perfect fantasies or sexual relationship. It is the power of our minds that can enhance the desired sexual experiences and is what realizes our sexual pleasure.
Capricorns are guarded and grounded. You have a no-nonsense and practical approach to your sexuality. Your stead-fast ways and champagne taste keeps you looking for the best. Your sexual energies tend to be within limitations and you often make the best out of any situation, as long as it does not cross your personal boundaries.
Whether a blind date or date night with your spouse, you tend to have a set goal that you work towards and that goal seems to be success in your conquest/relationship/task at hand! All of this behavior tends to reflect back on the fact that deep down, you are shy and much of this way of acting and thinking tends to be due to the fact that you feel you have to overcompensate to get to the point you want to be or the emotions you want to express.
You tend to give off mixed messages and therefore, it can be difficult for you to connect in a relationship or communicate properly. Say what you mean and mean what you say! Ultimately, you are not a game player and you do seek a level of seriousness in your sexual partners. Better yet, when it comes to commitment, you take fidelity very seriously and are a big believer in the matters of the heart!. Now get sex!
On the Edge: Born on the Cusp
If you were born within a few days of the Sun’s movement from one zodiac sign to the next, this means you were born “on the cusp,” and you’ll feel the influence from both zodiac signs. This combination creates a “personality type” that makes you unique!
Cusp of Capricorn and Sagittarius
December 18 to December 24
If you were born on the cusp of these two signs, you fall under the cusp of Prophecy, as you truly have the gift of vision and foretelling. Your ruling planets of both Jupiter and Saturn are the two biggest planets in our immediate galaxy and virtually sums up the two opposing personality traits. Saturn is associated with the principles of limitation, restrictions, boundaries, practicality and reality governing ambition, career, authority and hierarchy. Jupiter, is known for growth and expansion, but is also associated with the urge for freedom and exploration, humanitarian and protecting roles, and with gambling and merrymaking.
This creates the hardworking and practical ethics with the carefree and optimistic outlook, allowing you big ideas and a way to create and execute them! Your vision of the future can actually become reality. You incorporate both earth and fire elements in your personality, making you very responsible, fair and a loyal person. On the other hand, when out of balance, you can be intense, uncooperative and selfish. Your elements also give you this “burn fast and go steady” conflict, which works when in balance, but causes you to throw practicality and optimism out the window. This can make you closed down, moody and rather impatient.
When you manage this stress, you are truly your outgoing, friendly, humorous self. You are set up for success and all you need to do is maintain the right cosmic mix to create your future!
Cusp of Capricorn and Aquarius
January 17 and January 23
Considered the Cusp of Mystery, this combination comes from the grounding aspect of the earth element and the lofty, care-free air element. This contradiction in “energies” inspires your quirky, off-beat nature with your reserved, yet social approach to interacting with others. You are a mentally inclined spirit that acquires knowledge through experience, education and association. Your conventional, proper ways are embellished by your socially acceptable conduct while interacting with others.
Your imagination only adds to your mystique and gives you the opportunity to see, ideas and approaches that can lead you to much success in most career endeavors. You love to entertain, talk about intellectually stimulating subjects and have no problem conversing about “off the wall” or strange topics. Your “internal excitement” often leads you to live an unusual life. This can put you in your own category, making it difficult to maintain personal relationships. Probably because you feel a need for independence and a tendency give off an aloof and/or critical aura.
Your vivid dreams and wild fantasies usually need to be expressed, so doing this creatively will make you the happiest. Also, if you show your loyalty and your friendly and funny side, you will make friends all the time.
