At 10:48 PM, CDT, December 21, 2015, the Sun enters the sign of Capricorn. It's the shortest day and the longest night of the year in the northern hemisphere. The sun moves so slowly that appears to stand still, a solstice. The sun is at the lowest point in the sky - but it rises nonetheless.
Capricorns rise too. No matter how steep the climb, how many obstacles along the way, or how long it'll take, Capricorns climb their way to the top. They are a cardinal sign, so they initiate, much like the sun finally starts to stay in the sky longer after the Winter Solstice. Though the Sun doesn't reach it's highest point in the sky months later during the Summer Solstice, the Capricorns understand that the hard work today will pay off much later.
Capricorns are often slapped with the labels of being too sensible and too down to earth (in other words, boring sticks-in-the-mud). That's rubbish! They have sensitivity in their souls, fire in their bellies, and intelligence in their head.
Capricorns don't get distracted by the small stuff. They can clearly see the path from beginning to the end on the way to their goals. In youth, they land more towards seriousness and melancholy because of the weight they carry on their shoulders. You might too if you could see the whole path to your goals like they could - how long, how windy, how steep...how hard. But just as a lot of the rest of the signs don't recognize this until their older, the Capricorn is grateful for getting to where they are on time. They lighten up just as the rest of us are starting to feel overwhelmed.
Speaking of time, don't be late for a Capricorn. Although they are understanding, they also don't like it if you waste their time. Second to the Virgo, Capricorns are sticklers about time.
Capricorns make steady, solid, reliable partners - both in business and in love. The Capricorn doesn't take much time to make a decision because they already knows what they do and do not want.
Being an earth sign, Capricorns appreciate value. They believe that if you buy cheap, you buy again and that's waste. They like solid foundations. If you're married to a Capricorn, you probably have a house with appliances and furniture that are durable, yet aesthetically pleasant. Clutter is not something they like either, so the house will be neat.
If you have a Capricorn in your life, you can count on things getting done and done right!
For all of us when the Sun is in Capricorn:
Capricorn's earth energy is a time of self-control, persistence, and patience. All the indulgence of Thanksgiving and the holidays in December come to a halt. It's a great time to prepare for and start a resolution.
The influence of Sun in Capricorn will help to focus your ambitions, give you better clarity of purpose, and help you get what you set your mind to in order.
It's a time to take ourselves and our lives more seriously. Under this Capricorn Cardinal energy, it's more intelligent to do things well the first time.
Do you have a friend or loved one who's a Capricorn (Between Dec. 21 - Jan 20)? Or maybe you are a Capricorn?
