Planets, Signs and Houses: Zodiacal aSigns Described and Attributes of Various Ascendant and Signs, Chapter III, Part - 34


Dr. Shanker Adawal


Capricorn described: This sign is lorded by Saturn, is Tamoguna and its element is earth. It resides in the south and is strong in night. It rises with its back, has an unwieldy or huge body is variegated and wanders on land and in forests. It is quadruped in the first half, and is foot less in the Second half and glides in Water.

Capricorn is ruled by Saturn, and its symbol is the Mountain Goat. Capricorn is an Earth sign, conservative and ambitious.

Note- (There are two types of goat, so there are two types of Capricorn native. In the country India where astrology must have begun, the goat is a domestic animal, a sad-looking creature kept to provide milk. It is seen limited to the sphere of activity by the rope to which it is tied. If free, it is stopped from making its way through the surrounding hedges of its field by the wooden cross bars on its neck. It has nothing to do, but eat what it can find and give its milk. Many a Capricorn person has this sad, long face and seems to spend his life in a very limited sphere, debarred from wider enjoyments, strictly keeping to the main point in life, which is provision of sustenance for the family by practical sensible work. He never ceases his efforts to “get some-where,” but actually goes round the same stake on the same rope for ever.

However, the mountain goat or antelope is a very different animal. Gaily leaping from crag to crag, he mounts higher and higher in his search for what is good. The phrase “to play the giddy goat” is now applicable. This other type of Capricorn native has a delightful sense of humour and yet is never trivial. His common-sense and practiced ability never desert him. He constantly aspires to higher and higher positions, ambitious to get to the top in whatever sphere of activity is his).

The one trait that best describes those born under this sign is ambition. Their lives are devoted to achieving something, whether it be an intellectual discovery, meeting a personal commitment, fulfilling a business obligation, or some other lofty objective. Capricorn native have a tireless drive to accomplish their mission and they plod on methodically until they succeed. Like their symbol, the mountain goat, they are steady and sure-footed, and take few risks on the way.

Capricorn native are highly intelligent and take naturally to positions of authority. They are excellent administrators and use every tool at their disposal to organize, plan, and problem solve their way to their goal. Capricorn native constantly strive towards security, and they regard hard work and financial rewards as ways to secure their well-being. They only desire money because it is a guarantee against whatever the uncertain future holds.

Capricorn native are very confident and have great faith in their own abilities. Often, they feel that they can only depend on themselves, and this is sometimes misinterpreted by others who think them cold and detached.

This is far from true, however, as Capricorn native can be very sympathetic and understanding. Just when you least expect it, Capricorn native can show you an excellent sense of humour which is wry, witty, and very funny.
