Capricorn in natural astrology
by Richard Pellard
English translation by Julien Rouger

The interpretation examples that we are suggesting are very far from being exhaustive: they only show and outline a general frame describing the problematics of this Sign. They should therefore not be taken literally. Each being brings indeed its own responses, more or less original, to the issues raised by a Sign. Through using the Theory of the zodiac and combining logic, observation and imagination, you will be able to develop a thousand other possible meanings, a thousand other variations on the same theme.

It’s possible that your Sun Sign is not dominant in your birth chart. One can for instance be born under the Aries Sign while the most valorized Sign is actually Taurus. In this case, it will probably be difficult for you to recognize yourself in the interpretations that are offered to you below. You will have to refer to the interpretations corresponding to your actual dominant Sign in order to relate to these. For further information, please feel free to visit our website and get a free mini-interpretation of your birth chart with our software Astrosoft.

Adapted Capricorn

S−Eliminating Inhibition strength for Capricorn: the impassive. Nighttime, still dominant, is from now on decreasing: of all the things one acquired, one only preserves what is strictly necessary. One therefore radically loses interest in the outside world and its stimulations, one stays cool, stone-faced, unmoved; one distances oneself from anything secondary, relative, factual. One tunes out the world in order to exclusively dedicate oneself to what one reckons to be the essential, the absolute, the most important. Power of oblivion and detachment; elimination, boycott, impassiveness.

Sl−Inhibition slowness for Capricorn: the Sphinx. Defence reactions are slow, persistent, persevering: shielding, bunker, systematic refusal. Habits and monolithic principles keep the heart of hearts safe from the fluctuations of beings, things and situations. Endurance, tenacity, patience, hermetism, sense of strategy, extreme rigor, abstemiousness, method, soundness, dryness. Development of an intuition that focuses on abstract structures.

SSSense of syntheses for Capricorn: the legist. Quest for the fundamental matrix, the invisible framework, the absolute structure. Everything must fit within a very high architectural, mechanical or metaphysical precision and cohesion. The perfect puzzle, without any gaps between the elements. The inner principles of functioning of the society, of the cosmos or of the individual. Need to be fundamentally oneself, properly built, well-ordered, each facet of the being in its place, rigorously fitted to and articulated with the others. Abstract humanism: may each one be a humble and tight-fitting cog of the Whole, and everything will be fine. Integrity, respect for the necessary Order, strict compliance to the rules.

S−SSThe impassive-legist is taken with absolute and authenticity, building his magnum opus over the long term, indifferent to the inessential.

Sl−SSThe Sphinx-legist is a tenacious silent, persevering in his inflexible principles, showing a merciless rigor when it comes to enforce the rules that are universal in his eyes.

Unadapted Capricorn

w+Expending Excitation weakness for Capricorn: the disillusioned. No spontaneity, no vital impulse, no healthy animal aggressivity, no initiative: one can’t take action or assert oneself openly. Tiredness, asthenia, prostration, staying in the background, depreciating self-criticism, feeling of powerlessness, general lack of interest, inability to respond opportunely to external stimulations, pathological indifference, repression of affect, expressionlessness, incommunicability.

q+Unadapted Excitation quickness for Capricorn: the maniac. Difficulties to operate the accelerator, to start up. In the event of an impossible startup, it’s an absolute stagnation, a total inactivity that hides an intense inner febricity that can’t or won’t manifest itself. In the event of an inadvertent startup, one gets excited for very little, one gets exhilarated by fantasy perfunctory attempts at action: tiresome teasing, mischiefs, short attacks of nervousness, of volatile and temperamental mood, after which one slips back into a disillusioned prostration.

UPUltraparadoxical phase for Capricorn: the totalitarian. What’s normally stimulating becomes inhibiting: hostile reactions are triggered by going out, opening up, or approaching the unfamiliar. One isn’t excited by novelty, one is left cold by the best news. Caricatural composure, unmovable habits in the situations where a vigorous and immediate reaction would be preferable. Greed unadapated to the actual needs: the more disregard one has for what one doesn’t own, the more one craves for it. One becomes totally identified with the Law, the Rule, the Sacred, the Ethics, the Transcendent Cause; hence the risks of merciless fanaticism, of ice-cold passions where the individual completely forgets oneself in the service of an absolute for which he’s capable of sacrificing everything, including whatever and whoever is just minding one’s own business.

w+UPThe disillusioned-totalitarian may be a misanthropic hermit, embittered, fatalistic, indifferent to everything and everyone, an egoist prisonner of his ivory tower.

q+UPThe maniac-totalitarian may be dangerous due to the inner fire that smoulders under his apparent impassiveness: his out-of-control nervousness is liable to burst out against any traitors to his Cause. NEXT
