Astrology - CAPRICORN

Astrology - CAPRICORN December 22nd - January 19th

The zodiacal sign of Capricorn commences on December 22nd, but for seven days, being overlapped by the "cusp" of the previous sign, it does not come into full power until on or about December 28th. From this date onwards it is in full strength until January 19th and then for seven days gradually loses its strength on account of being overlapped by the "cusp" of the incoming sign "Aquarius".

In accordance with their symbol of the mountain goat, Capricorns have immense organizational skills and an overwhelming desire and ability to achieve their goals at any cost. Whatever Capricorns set out to do will be followed through to the end despite any obstacles encountered along the way. They are economical, frugal, cautious and very rarely proceed without planning in advance. They are good and loyal friends, honest, upright, and persevering to a fault without ever complaining. These people are faithful and extremely good providers but need secure homes to which they can always return and reflect upon their busy lives. They are born leaders and posses great executive abilities. Capricorns can be extremely disciplined and calculating to the point of ruthlessness. They are very reserved and usually speak only when they have something important to say. Some people mistake the Capricornian reserve for coldness and insensitivity. For Capricorns, however, it is a way to pursue their goals without allowing extraneous emotions to stand in the way. People born in this period have strong mental force, but they are as a rule, generally misunderstood by others. They are independent and high-minded in all their actions and detest being under the restraint of others. They must be leaders in whatever they are engaged or else they are inclined to lose interest in their work. They generally make their greatest mistake by espousing the unpopular cause, the "under dog" in the fight and so often make the bitterest enemies by their actions being misunderstood. If inclined to be religious they usually go to the extremes and become fanatical in their zeal. Difficult aspects make them pessimistic, depressive, shy, uncommunicative and ruthless.

They have strange ideas of love and for this reason they are often considered "odd" and do not fit easily with their neighbours. Their home and family life is very often a troubled one. They feel "lonely-hearted" and misunderstood.

You are more likely to acquire wealth through your own personal efforts than by any dint of good fortune. Advantageous investments for you would be in land or house property, the building up of factories

dealing especially in coal, lead or iron products, machinery or transport work or agriculture, the developing of farming enterprises and all things solid and concrete. You will experience much difficulty in obtaining money that should be yours by right and you should never lend without security, or you would be sure to lose.

A Capricorn criminal will plan all out to a nicety, keep a steady finger on the trigger and press it after you are exactly in center of the rifle. So thorough and ruthless will be he that he might read it all in the morning papers while sipping his tea - without batting even an eyelid.
