|Gifts and Lessons
||Capricorns are prudent and reserved. The keyphrase for
Capricorn is "I use". The symbol for Capricorn is the sea goat. The word
Capricorn comes from the Latin word for goat horn. While this also related to the
cornucopia - horn of plenty - and while Capricorn is associated with wealth, the wealth
does not come magically - it comes from hard work or from knowledge. The fish tail
associates Capricorn with water, and indicates that Capricorns are sensitive, although
they may not show it.
Capricorn is the sign of the head of business. Howard Hughes, Aristotle Onassis, and John Delorean were born Capricorns.
Like Aries, Cancer, and Libra, Capricorn is an initiating sign. Capricorns, while cautious and prudent, do take action for practical and important reasons. They do not dive in, as Aries might; they carefully think about the practicalities and usefulness of what they do.
Capricorns are ambitious. They are responsible and goal oriented and they achieve their results through personl discipline and commitment. They are honorable and serious in what they do.
Being extremely practical, they are well organised and can organise others. Capricorns are very professional and they can wait for the results of their efforts.
Capricorns can be idealistic in a practical or useful way. Martin Luther King was born under Capricorn.
Capricorns can be cold, heartless and selfish. Al Capone was born under Capricorn.
Capricorns can teach others to be more motivated, organised, grounded and more sensitive to the thoughts of groups.
They need to learn that others may think that their organisations are like straight-jackets!
Capricorn rules the knees, skin, skeleton.
