The Depiction of Capricorn

The ancient image associated with Capricorn is that of the upper part of a mountain goat and the lower part of a fish. We encounter the goat in the symbol of the fire sign, Aries, and the fish in the water sign, Pisces. It reminds us that when Capricorn honors their foundation and feelings represented by the fish tail, they are welcomed from the bottom of the sea to the top of the mountains.

The Expression of Capricorn

Capricorn energy expresses itself in responsibility, respectfulness, and conserving and maintaining structures, foundations, and rules that hold and protect value. There is a natural tendency to approach by honoring.

When not connected to honoring their feelings, Sun in Capricorn tends to put too much weight on authority and validation or becomes authoritarian. Then honoring can descend into using. To return to honoring, Capricorn must learn to respect the whole process and the different components that are being taken care of and maintained. That includes their own feelings and the feelings of others. When Sun in Capricorn demonstrates that they honor their feelings and the feelings of others, they gain respect from those around them.

Capricorn rules the knees, bones, and teeth. It is associated with corporations, laws, authority, and structures. Capricorn is ruled by the planet Saturn, that although ultimately fair, determines our rewards by our actions. Sun in Capricorn is pulled to preserve and maintain structures and the integrity of past cultural achievements.

Moon in Capricorn

With the moon in Capricorn, there is a need for establishment, security, and to be honored. Security and emotional well-being often come from accomplishment, effort, and hard work.

A parent may be experienced as distant, cold, strict, unavailable, or conditional. With the Moon in Capricorn, honoring feelings is important because when disconnected from taking care of them, there can be an over-focus on goals.

Capricorn and Mercury Retrograde

Sun in Capricorn often sets themselves up during the Mercury Retrograde cycle by putting the cart in front of the horse. And then the horse tramples the cart. This can occur when an over-focus on rules and goals ignores the feelings and enthusiasm of everyone involved, and that, in many ways, is the horse. Mistakes and errors can follow when people feel used or do not feel well treated, or if Capricorn puts aside their feelings or best interests because responsibility takes over. That is where errors and unexpected difficulties can occur that may not have been part of the 'plan.'

Other ways that Sun in Capricorn can contribute to the cycle is through micromanaging and not allowing the full expression and input of others. In this way, more viable or effective solutions can be ignored.
