Capricorn’s life is like The Curious Case of Benjamin Button: the older the Goat gets, the younger they look and feel. This rejuvenation is one of the benefits of being a child of Saturn. Actually, it’s about the only benefit of being a child of Saturn. Astrological Saturn is the planet of discipline, structure, karma, and restrictions; he creates obstacles in our lives to make us more responsible, and strong-minded. As descendants of Saturn, aging-in-reverse Capricorn is thus equipped with all the tools needed to forge their destiny.
In fact, from the moment they took their first breath, Capricorn thought about their destiny. Cap might not call it by such a name, preferring to use such words as profession, vocation, and/or legacy, but the sentiment is the same. Indeed, astro-Goats practically popped out of the womb with a manual on how best to master your destiny. (It’s equal parts hard work, sacrifice, and pertinacity.) Ah, and so we’ve already stumbled upon Capricorn’s inner nature, which is, after all, the purpose of this book…
Ths is an excerpt from Capricorn: The Climb, the 10th installment in my Zodiac Abstract anthology, which is more than just a sun sign description book. In it is information pertaining to everything about Capricorn, from how they look and dress to how they think, relate to others, what they strive for in life, and also the grief they can cause themselves (and others). What’s more, I dive deep into the marrow of the myths surrounding the cardinal earth sign– Saturn, the 10th House, the glyph (♑), it’s all here!
