The Pure Capricorn Native

He is practical, cautious, responsible and ambitious. He will work hard if it is going to get him somewhere. He will bear with limitations and frustrations since his very nature is conditioned to them. It is through the realization that success is achieved through the willing acceptance of necessity, which, he wins through in spite of all obstacles. “Saturnine” is well understood as meaning gloomy or grave, but the Saturnalia, the festival of Saturn, was a time of gaiety and fun.

In love as in everything else, he is cautious. Before taking on the responsibility of marriage, he will want to be very sure that he is safe in his choice. Once satisfactorily married “he is likely to be happy, as he is a natural good provider,” and knows how to “husband” his resources. “She” will be economical and will run her house well, and will aid her husband in the social side of any “climbing.”

Overstress or misuse of these traits will mean too utilitarian an attitude to life, too stern a behaviour to younger people. Economy can become mean and miserly. Love of punctuality and orderliness can become a reason for fussy nagging. Cautious looking ahead can become a selfish counting the cost before any action is taken.

Inhibition of his natural traits will be caused by being subjected to a careless, disorderly type of life with no possibility for advancement. Reaction will be the seeking of “place” by mean ways.

As a child the Capricorn native is sometimes a “slow developer,” like the Earthy Taurus. The Saturn period is that of older life and he may be expected to come into his own all in good time. He should be made to share his toys and not hoard them for himself only.

Physical Characteristics

The darkness of Saturn is usually in evidence, both in skin, hair and eyes. There is a bony look, especially about the knees and knuckles. A typical signature is the presence of long deep creases at the sides of the mouth. The face is often long. Usually a grave, serious bearing.


Diseases which limit, such as rheumatism, Orthopaedic troubles, Embryologists show that the endocrine glands and the central nervous system are formed from an infolding of the outer layers of the developing embryo, so they may be said to be related to the skin. Skin eruptions often follow a nervous shock. This may explain some of the skin troubles of this sign.

Way of living

The Capricorn person is at his best in any sphere, where his natural urges can be reasonably expressed. He is therefore better in routine work or in the organizing of work on such lines. Hence, any business, government, or political organization suits him, or the church and the army from the point of view of an organized body. In such placing, he can look ahead and feel safe, since he will have steady advancement and a pension at the end. His sense of order makes him a good servant or official since he will carry out orders from above faithfully and will see that those below do their duty.


The Capricorn native is generally happy alone and in the enjoyment of serious reading and music, and in practical hobbies.
