When a person has his natal Sun in Capricorn, it means that he belongs to the zodiac sign of Capricorn. Capricorn is the tenth sign of the zodiac, and has planet Saturn as its ruling celestial body. The period of Capricorn approximately starts on the 22nd of December and lasts until the 19th of January. Slight differences in the exact hours can occur because we should not forget that every fourth year has one day more than the others. The Sun is the brightest object in the sky, the life-giving star of our Solar System, and also the most important celestial body in astrology. Also called Sol, the Sun is impersonated by the ancient Greek god Helios.
Always arrive on time. Honor your commitments. Respect the rules. Follow the protocols. The zodiac goats do not take things lightly. They organize their lives, including their pleasures and amusements, with an almost military rigor and discipline. So much attachment to the structure has as a counterpart one of the most difficult paths of the zodiac. They don’t have it easy. But that does not intimidate them, on the contrary.
Ruled by the planet Saturn, the wise old man, they inherited the attributes of their master, which go beyond the rings that both wear around them as an essential mark of their limitations. The main one of all, time. Capricorn is the timekeeper of the zodiac, nothing favors him as much as age, maturity. It is said of the people of this sign that they are born old and that throughout life they rejuvenate. Rather, what happens is that they anticipate the world, things, people. They are waiting for you smiling kindly and ironically, and when you arrive, you realize that they were right. This wisdom is characteristic of its ruling planet, which in mythology was already considered the father of laws, the god of time, the ancient legislator.
Sign of the earth element and cardinal modality, it configures an ambitious, practical and realistic personality. That is why Mars is exalted in this sign, in which she acquires the ability to achieve her objectives in a more strategic, calculating and long-term way. Two planets that summarize the Capricorn idiosyncrasy quite well: on the one hand, move forward, act, fight (Mars) and on the other, know how to wait, prevent, endure (Saturn). When he manages to balance these two antagonistic principles, Capricorn reaches a level that is difficult to find in other signs. Perhaps the fact that Saturn prefers its exaltation in the balanced, fair and moderate sign of Libra has something to do with this . We know that, in addition, Libra is related to wealth (Venus) and Capricorn tends to acquire a notable financial position over time. Its sign is equivalent to the last of the earth element, that is to say, to the maximum earthly height. Up there, to the highest mountains, only the zodiac goats arrive.
The astrological house that corresponds to this sign is the 10th, which is strongly related to duty, since it begins at midheaven, the highest point of the natal chart. This is where we carry out our projects or goals , our role in society. That is why we say that in it we see the work, the profession, the social status of the native. Many astrologers also associate it with the father, partly because of Saturn, but also because since ancient times paternity has been associated with the law. That is why Capricorn has a strong paternal attitude: austere, moral, rigid, hardworking, ambitious. This trait is even more evident in Capricorn women: they tend to be more father than mother (just as Cancer men are more motherly than fatherly).
However, Saturn is considered to be in bliss (meaning the planet is strong in its location) in the 12th house. The house of tests, obstacles, chronic illnesses, secret enemies, confinement, asylums, jail. So, how to link these two houses, 10 and 12, apparently so dissimilar to each other? A very clear example to illustrate this is seen in the film What remains of the day ( The Remains of the Day, original title), in which the Capricorn Anthony Hopkins acts. In the role of icy and efficient butler to him, Mr. Stevens spends his entire life in the service of a magnate in his mansion. His sense of duty and his responsibility prevent her from developing his emotional world. The arrival of Miss Kenton, housekeeper, seems to endanger her situation, or iceberg, sentimental. But although both fall in love, love never comes to fruition. There are memorable scenes, such as the death of Stevens’ father, who is also the mansion’s butler. When they tell him that he is dying in another room, he continues to serve at an important dinner given by the tycoon. On another occasion, Miss Kenton finds him secretly reading a love novel.
What is important from the astrological point of view are the keys that history gives to understand the relationship between work, status, economy, duty (10th house) and slavery, confinement, inner life, isolation (12th house). Many Capricorn people tend to be slaves to their own ambitions and, in a kind of vicious circle, they seek to work and ascend even more in order to achieve a freedom that is finally nothing more than a new slavery (to schedules, jobs, professions, etc.). Important positions). This is why traditional astrologers “prescribed” their opposite planet, the Moon, to Saturn: that is, to incorporate the emotional, dependent, nurturing, maternal and family side of life.
