The top, or midheaven, of the zodiac is commanded by this old sign, whose most shining qualities are loyalty, industriousness, resolution, and rationality. The time frame of Capricorn ranges from January 15th till February 15th in real time; from January 20th till February 20th in the seasonal zodiac.
The true nature of Capricorn lies in water, as it is half fish, hence feeling. They do not emote openly as do Cancer natives, yet they feel even more deeply due to their watery depths.
The duality of human nature is represented here by the goat, innocently but rapaciously grazing on a mountaintop, having the tale of a huge fish, which, free and wild, thunders through the sea.
The natural Capricorn native struggles with the same rapacious appetite, the same drive that thunders through the natural world. The prudent magickal Capricorn concentrate these forces into a finely honed tool of Will with which to reshape the world.
The Lilith Influence is at home in the sign at the Top. Lilith says 'No!' 'that's enough!' and 'go no further'. Lilith demonstrates choice, the freedom and power to give our life form, structure, boundaries, even to limitations. She focuses herself willingly and eagerly to concentrate her energies, rather than trying to restrict from without. Here is the influence which inspires us to do the most serious planning and growth; we mature by measuring ourselves against ourselves.
The natural scent of Capricorn is a pine tree by the seashore. The intriguing metals are pewter or lead. Most Capricorns can be matched with onyx, jet, smoky quartz or malachite as their gemstones, but the smoky quartz is the wisest choice by far. This quartz stabilizes and enhances security and safety, encouraging awareness and responsibility of the Earth as a biosphere and living being, and helps one to accept ones place on the planet; healing fear, depression, addictions, and obsessions.
The materials and fabrics are leather, cashmere, and hemp.
The foods exclusively Capricorn are mushrooms, carob, barley, beer, potatoes and all their forms, and poppy seeds.
These associations give the prudent Christian Capricorn a deeper insight into her nature and place in the world.
Your words of wisdom are, 'I know just what to do!'
The garden of Capricorn centers on holly, carnation, mistletoe, pansy, hemp, aconite, poppy seed, carob, comfrey, skullap, oak, wintergreens, all moss, thistles, and pine. The centerpiece is a any reference to Time, such as an hourglass, though the wisest of gardeners center on a unicorn.
The most effective pilgrimage for Capricorn and anyone with a strong influx of the Serious influence would be to Rosslyn Chapel in Scotland.
The most effective shrine would be in an old church, or a vault, sepulcher, tomb, like a mausoleum; an animal manger or pen; on thorny or barren ground; in the cellar, a deep pit; in a convent, a cave; or a deserted forest. Dedicate the shrine in the key of G.
Capricorn enbodies all which pass through its stars with dignity, prudence, reverence, practicality, fertiity, ambition, organization, and concentration!
Every sign has three phases, or decanates, which change every ten days or degrees. This is another reason for the vast differences between the Capricorns! Called Rising Stars, these constellations stamp their signature on us at the hour of our birth, and at the birth of each new day. These rising stars tell us a great deal about which myth we may be enacting, with which archetypes, and which dramas we may live out in our lives.
The three decanates of Capricorn are Sagitta the Arrow, the falling eagle Aquila, and the Dolphin.
The first phase, Sagitta, reaches from the 15th of January till the 25. When Sagitta the Arrow (of the Centaur) rises before the sun, it points precisely at the center of the galaxy. Those people and relationships born under these stars are noble, enduring, tenacious, and ambitious, concrete and thrifty.
The second decanate of Capricorn is Aquila, the Falling Eagle. This magestic bird reigns from the 25th of January till the 5th of February. Aquila was awarded with starry immortality by the Goddess for accurate discernment coupled with outstanding loyalty. Those people and relationships born under these stars constant, reliable, industrious, and persevering.
Delphinus the Dolphin leaps up to form the backdrop from the 4th till the 14th of Febraury. This wonderfully playful mammal has a magickal skin which turns blue and gold when it dies. Those people and relationships born under these stars are rational, changeable, somewhat Mercurial, with considerable success in commercial affairs.
Birth Chart for Sarah Heath Palin
I chose this rising star because she personifies the power of the Top! She is on top of events, in the public eye, and exerts raw power. It is that simple. There is a lot in Sarah's current circumstances which reminds me of what happened to Richard Nixon- vilified for his few faults while his triumphs and triumphant qualities were ignored by the Lame Stream Media. Sarah has Jupiter rising from her seventh house of Pisces, at the Master Number 22, so there you go; others see her as larger than she is, but at the Master Number she can live up to her own expectations of herself.
I chose Sarah's chart to debut my blog, too! Check it out on my blog page, or go to westernsiderealstars.blogspot.com
Plenty of planets in Capricorn, no matter the house, or tenth house activity, no matter the sign, always makes us tough! It lends us tenacity, a belief in our case or cause, a strength of character!
A fascinating American icon! In spite of what you might have heard, this man is a real American, a patriot who loves his country, a staunch conservative, and follows his star!
Born February 10, 1964, in Mount Vernon Washington State, Glenns' sun is conjunct Mars in Capricorn, so he is a rish taker, a mans' man, ambitious and direct. Saturn sits at 0 degrees of Aquarius, so he is all or none when it comes to innovation, ideas, philosophical views- well that sure describes Beck! All this takes place in his tenth house of profession, interstingly enough!
Glenns' moon is Sagittarius, so we can see clearly where he gets into trouble! He is too honest, too direct, and too plain spoken for some peoples' tastes. His moon forms part of a Grand Trine in Fire, along with his Part of Fortune in Aries, twelfth house, and Pluto of all planets in Leo, and Uranus, OMG, both retrograde, both in the fourth house. He did indeed lose almost everything, but that Pluto helped him up from the depths, allowing him to transform himself, and PDQ, into the giant that he is, spiritually.
As long as Glenn follows that star, he will stay strong!
Another prominent Capricorn is Michelle Obama, born the 17th, 1964, in Chicago. Her birth time is uncirculated; I calculate it to be circa 921PM local time, giving her a warm golden Leo rising, a cool and elegant Aquarius moon, and the sun in the fifth house behind Mars. Such planetary attributes explain her so-called 'angry' look, 'abrasiveness', and 'depression'. This working gal isn't depressed, she is just a typical Capricorn! Look how terrific she looks here; Capricorns always dress beautifully. (The birth time cannot be considered noon; that would give her Taurus rising. Does she look like a Bull??? Does she have a prominent neck??? Is her voice mellifluous, but deeper than expected? NO!! )
Saturn through Capricorn is a grave, serious transit, which gives us a good solid understanding of time, limitation, and boundaries.
Saturn always represents a womans father in her chart. While he may not be a Capricorn, this sign will define the nature of our relationship with him; time well spent!
Lilith was the first woman created in Eden.
She was made one moment before Adam, though from the same clay; not from his rib, like Eve. She was not his equal, being a bit older, a bit better.
They lived together in the Garden for a bit, till Adam wanted sex in the missionary position. Lilith laughed, and jumped over the Wall, into the outside world she flew.
Most working women, and all professional women, are daughters of Lilith.
Amen to that!!!
Which Lilith do we mean when we reference Lilith??
Lilith the First Eve?
Lilith the Dark Moon? Many European astrologist's use the Dark Moon in every horoscope, not just womens.
Or the asteroid Lilith?
Does this sound like another reference to the Triple Goddess????
The Devil is the card for Capricorn in the Sacred Tarot, reminding us not to get too attached to our selves, our possessions, our men, or our creations, lest they bedevil us!
The World Is A Dancer! This is the place of Saturn, or Lilith, in the Sacred Tarot; She Dances The World Alive.
So many women are terrified of getting old... is it really so awful? Look into the eyes of the Ages to master the lessons of self possession!
The Dutiful Daughter!
With the moon in Capricorn
we are at our most ambitious, toughest, and most likely to succeed. We must be cautious not to overstep our strength! Family comes first, with work and occupation a close second. Special care must be taken of the bones of the skeleton and the teeth, as these are at their most vulnerable now. Recall, 'touch not with iron those parts of the body resided by the moon.' You won't die if you get a root canal now, but you won't heal as rapidly and recover as fully, either.
If you were born with the moon in Capricorn, then you retain this mood and outlook for life. You think and feel like a Capricorn!
Since the moons placement in our birth chart always represents our mom, having it here is a bit of a challenge. Even if she isn't a Capricorn, this sign defines the parameters of our relationship with her. There may be more unspoken love and support than anything overtly warm; she may be generous, but there are strings attached to her gifts; she may push and push harder for you to succeed, and she may be unapproachable at times. Not an easy placement, but one full of wisdom and rich in tradition!
As a mom, Ceres in Capricorn makes us go by the book.
Mercury in Capricorn
Mercury transiting Capricorn lends light on the best traditions, noblest aims, and foundations of solid good sense.
If you were born with Mercury transiting Capricorn, there is nothing base in your mind, so you need to be circumspect and wary of those of a less pristine nature.
Venus transiting Capricorn describes classic foundations of love, harmony, beauty, and grace.
Mars transiting Capricorn is like a military maneuver! Mighty, energetic Mars disciplines and organizes himself to the point where he conquers.
If you were born with Mars in Capricorn, you find this kind of man a hero!
Jupiter In Capricorn
Jupiter transiting Capricorn increases our dependability, responsiveness to duty, and groundedness.
Jupiter in a womans chart describes the man she would wisely choose in marriage; though the man may not be a Capricorn, he must display deep core values, have a healthy tradition himself, and a high idea of honor.
Enjoys the finer things with hubby.
Uranus transited Capricorn in 1828-36, 1912-20, and 1995-2003.
These years saw new ideas and visions of governance, authority, and power.
Neptune last transited Capricorn from 1998 till January 2010.
Our nation was born under this transit, 1777-99, which means we are about to experience a Pluto return in 2021. Those born under this unique transit will have strong opinions on the work ethic, social positioning, and have no qualm about civil disobediance or disputing existing authority.
Lilith in Capricorn has little leeway for innovation; she steals your boyfriend.
North Node: great success in business and industry through hard work and your own merit.
South Node: you have attained the top in prior lifetimes, and now may see beyond to the next horizon.
Lucky in business and industry, and favored by your bosses!
