The Capricorn Horoscope

Our delineation of the Capricorn horoscope follows a very logical method, based on ancient basic and archetypal principles. It's NOT about stereotypes.

Every zodiac sign is the result of the so-called Quadruplicities or Modes (Cardinal, Fixed and Mutable signs) and Triplicities (related to the four elements: Fire, Air, Water and Earth).

The Capricorn horoscope is based on the Cardinal Earth energies:

  • The Cardinal principle is about acting (doing) and urges. It implies initiating activity and executing power. Cardinal is changing, disturbing and unsettling. Cardinals are the "do-ers" and initiators.

  • The Earth principle is about material, tangible things. It's the solid-state and always very condense. It's cold and heavy. It wants to retain in a contracted manner.

Blending cardinal air into something tangible or material, you get the keyword of "the mountain."

The main characteristics of the Sun (representing your self-expressing life force) in the cardinal earth sign Capricorn are:

  • always want to climb higher and higher, to the top in whatever job or field. This causes them to often surpass themselves -- not always in a positive and/or healthy way.
  • ambitious; wants to be in the highest position (literally or figuratively) (compare this with Aries who wants to be the first)
  • sometimes humorless or a dry sense of humor
  • emotionally detached, impersonal and formal
  • strategical and business-minded
  • interest in matters of money and insurances
  • interest in political matters and our society
  • responsible but tends not to bond easily
  • needs to express oneself factually and authoritative
  • sets limits (to others) to be in control and to feel secure (see the next bullets); restrictive and rigid
  • censorship
  • always wants to feel secure
  • always has something to do with "locks" (locked doors, locking up rooms...) and/or feelings of (in)security
  • always mind the (unwritten or unspoken) strings attached!

Depending on your birth date, the Capricorn horoscope divides into the following three decanates:

December 23-31

  • unstable emotional behavior
  • needs prestige
  • very active
  • traditional
  • dependable
  • strict and dogmatic
  • disruptive family (power struggles)
  • sets ultimatums and threats
  • attached to ideology and ethics
  • money is important in their life
  • workaholic tendencies
