You. Better. Werk!After a month of passionate curiosity, self-taught education, and meaningful discovery under Sagittarius Season, the Sun enters ambitious Capricorn on December 21st 2020 at 5:02am eastern until January 19th, 2021.
Capricorn, as the mythological Seagoat, the one and only cardinal earth sign; ruled by disciplined Saturn wants us to operationalize - such a Seagoat word! - the hope, vision, and education of the last month into inspired action. Like all cardinal signs, Capricorn wants us to take the first step towards initiating a goal. Which, frankly - could be argued as the hardest step, right? That’s precisely why Capricorn helps align us with our: strengths, resilience, empathy, and perseverance because we’re adults who can do hard things!
It’s important here to situate Capricorn’s symbolism as the Seagoat. The half-fish, half-goat mountain climber. This is crucial because so often we simplify the meaning of the half-goat only and locate Capricorn’s ambition, work-ethic, and discipline. But that’s not the whole Seagoat story! The fish tail of the Capricorn gives the sign - and the entire zodiac during its zodiac season! - the emotional underpinnings that motivate our goals.
So much of why we want to accomplish goals and “mountainclimb” in our life is because of our emotional love of something. A passion or desire to be of service to others. That’s ambition and success in the most enlightened Seagoat sense. And In order to understand how Capricorn achieves, we have to understand their emotional motivations and this month inspires us to locate the feelings that inspire righteous actions.
Like we’ve discussed before in our time together, Astrology readers are aware that we are not just our sun sign. We all have our individualized Astrological story written from our birth date, time, and location and it holds the specificities of ascendant, planets, houses, aspects, and more.
Our Natal Chart and all it possesses tells a story of what’s possible for each of us in this lifetime. Of the twelve houses in the chart, the one Capricorn Season wants us to understand is house number ten. It’s also referred to as the Midheaven. The section of the chart at the very top; the closest to our divine inspired soul purpose. The mountain we’re invited to climb. I outlined the Capricorn house rulers of the zodiac here for you begin the journey that starts with the first step.
