If you or your child is born under the sign of Capricorn, you know how to stay the long course. Have you ever seen a mountain goat hanging off the edge of a cliff? That’s Capricorn!
Slow, steady, sure-footed.
Capricorns can stay in the same job for years. Or they can own the company. While the faint of heart are running for the door, the Capricorns are counting the bounty.
They need fresh air—but could forget to get it because they are working so hard. Capricorn is ruled by Saturn, the task master.
Sometimes small and wiry, Capricorns are always smart.
Capricorn is the natural sign of the 10th house of the Zodiac, which is the height of power. Governments are ruled by Capricorn.
For the past several years, the planet Pluto has been going through this sign, breaking up old forms and making new ones.
The old guard, tradition, the patriarchy—all governed by Cap. In fact, many prominent leaders are Capricorns.
There is a gentleman who runs the parking garage by my chiropractor’s office. The tiny cubicle in the four-story garage is his office. He is always on the phone and always has visitors, usually people on their lunch breaks who come and seek his advice. All he really needs is his cell phone, it seems, and he always has time for his “clients,” acknowledging each one of them. Guess his sign!
I expect by the time he is 50, he will own that garage!
You’ve heard the expression “trust but verify.” For a Capricorn it would be, “verify … then maybe trust.”
If you have a Capricorn child, you will be dealing with a mini economist. Your child will want and need to know how to progress on their own path. Everything will be a series of steps in order to achieve their goals.
Their idea of fun is different than other kids’. It is serious fun. How inspiring to know that everything you help this child learn will become a building block to their successes.
Capricorns are many of the most prominent people in our society and throughout history: Michelle Obama, LeBron James, Martin Luther King Jr., Kate Middleton (the Duchess of Cambridge), Muhammad Ali, Henri Matisse, Paul Cezanne, Hayao Miyazaki, Lee Daniels, Steven Soderbergh, Jeff Bezos, Jimmy Page, Liam Hemsworth, Orlando Bloom, Bradley Cooper, Jared Leto, Howard Stern, Gayle King, LL Cool J, Sienna Miller, Diane Keaton, Kate Bosworth, Marlene Dietrich, Meghan Trainor, Pit Bull, and Ellie Goulding, to name just a few.
Some Capricorn youngsters are already well known in their neighborhood and their family—and if they are not prominent now, they may well be later in life, especially when it comes to their particular sphere of work. Their hard work and ability to keep going, one step at a time, will ultimately lead them to their destiny.
