Is Your SUN in Capricorn?

Welcome to the World of Capricorn!

Capricorn Sun Symbol

The symbol of the goat represents Capricorn in the zodiac. The meaning behind this symbol begins with the nature God, Pan. According to Greek Mythology, Pan is the ruler of woodlands and forests. He is commonly known as the god of the wilds. The hindquarters, legs, and horns resemble a goat, and on the top, he resembles a man. This woodland god chases nymphs with determination and basks in nature, drink, and physical love.

Capricorn Sun Element

Capricorn displays the element of EARTH and tends to be a sign of surefooted determination. The Earth signs (Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn) are all different, but they are each grounded and strong. If something needs to be accomplished with precision, then look towards an Earth sign. Their responsible nature might be boring to some, but reliability should never be taken for granted. This group will accomplish their goals without playing into distractions.

Earth signs are sensual in the way they appreciate life through their physical senses. They understand the world around them and value beauty, food, nature, and peak performance. Sometimes too practical, greedy, or driven, Earth signs would do well to take time to rest and appreciate the little things in life. 

Capricorn Sun Quality

Capricorn is a CARDINAL sign, which evokes a sense of leadership or ability to ignite a movement and run the show. The four cardinal signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn) each usher in a different season throughout the year. They are original, innovative, and capable of great things.

Being a Cardinal Earth sign, Capricorn displays a natural authority in situations where leadership is required. Cardinal Earth will achieve their long term goals because hard work drives them.

Capricorn Ruling Planet

SATURN rules the sign of Capricorn. As the planet of determination, hard work, and discipline, Saturn perfectly encapsulates the Capricorn vibe. Although some may find this description intimidating, dull, or exhausting, the Capricorn brain is wired for success through sheer determination. Saturn spurs Capricorn to face fears, take life seriously, and work through any difficulty. In the end, life is far more enjoyable because the problems were dealt with ahead of time, and Capricorn can bask in the beauty of accomplishment.

Capricorn Sun Mantra

I use my affinity for hard work to make my dreams a reality.

Capricorn Personality and Purpose

When your Sun is in Capricorn, you can attain success no matter the circumstance. Others may be faster than you or more skilled than you, but they don’t have your determination. When others have given up or become bored with something, you will keep working and perfecting your skills. As an extremely ambitious sign, Capricorn tends to dominate their competition by keeping their eye on the long-term and working steadily.

A Capricorn’s authority is often stern, and their personality is reserved, so an outlet for physical or emotional well-being keeps them from turning pessimistic. You dislike embarrassment, which can make you shy, but letting go a little and putting yourself out there helps to manifest your desires.

You are respectful towards authority when the figure in charge possesses characteristics you deem admirable. If someone isn’t worthy of your respect, then you tend to write them off. You have a critical eye that can be difficult to satisfy your high standards.

When a Capricorn says, “I love you,” it is a truth directly from the heart. You are not overly emotional in that way, but you do yearn for connection and love. Sometimes putting practicality over romance, you choose a partner with an eye on the future. A Capricorn needs to be stimulated intellectually and loves to be amused. You will go for someone who makes you laugh because their vibe loosens you up.

Often quite scrupulous, you work until the task is completed correctly. You attend to every detail and expect everyone else to push themselves as hard as you do. This comes from the tendency to believe that your way is superior to others, but it often is because results don’t lie.

When you were younger, your shy and reserved personality was central to your character. You liked to read, be alone, or with a tiny group of friends and crafting things. A younger Capricorn would study for fun or work towards the completion of a personal project. You may have been strong-willed at a younger age, too. Your worrisome nature may have caused panic or anxiety.

Creating a routine is the Capricorn key to success. Usually, you have no problem working long hours, so it would be beneficial to schedule something relaxing. If you are working on a project that interests you, then you will never stop.

Although Capricorns sound very serious and wholly practical, which is true, they are hilarious. Your timing with jokes is impeccable, and the delivery is sarcastic and humorous. 

A Capricorn is the best at giving gifts, plus they provide excellent advice. If you need a solid, grounded opinion, ask a Capricorn. If you need someone to listen intently, find a Capricorn.

Your energetic value to humanity should not be taken for granted. Capricorn energy demonstrates the potential found in self-discipline. 

Capricorn Compatibility

Capricorn is most compatible with Water signs (Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces) and other Earth signs.

Are you a cusp?

If the description of Capricorn Sun is characteristic of your personality, you may find several of your planets are aligned with this sign, element, or quality. If very little of the description represents your persona, then other signs in your chart may carry more substantial aspects. Also, if you were born on a cusp, which is when your birthday is within a few days of the Sun’s move from one zodiac sign to the next, then your Sun might not be the most accurate representation of your potential. Being on a cusp means you display the traits of two different Sun signs or a unique blend of the two.
