Capricorn Monthly Horoscope for September 2020
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 20) — Two astrology assignments for you, both in the form of lists. The first one is: What remains incomplete in your life? What changes have you been wanting to advance for the last few years that you have not come to closure on? Second, which of your personal attributes are you most concerned your family will not accept if they knew the truth? This can include any group of people you are close to and on whom you depend for your security. If your original family no longer exists, which were you concerned with in the past? The two sets of ideas are related. You are in the process of extracting yourself from many former investments, where you left behind aspects of your being — in fact, some of the very best of who you are. Your solar chart describes a situation, going back to the beginning of your life, where your identity became conditioned on what makes you feel safe. Therefore, you had to lie low and not rock the boat by revealing who you actually are. There is another side of this; it can work the other way: you will only feel grounded and confident when you present yourself as you are, and don’t give a toss about the opinions others have of you. It might seem like this would take some real guts. However, push has now come to shove, and through the Mars retrograde process, you are likely to discover that you simply cannot hide your reality any longer — nor do you want to. None of this is a luxury; your wellbeing depends on it.
Sign Description for Capricorn
(Dec. 22-Jan. 20) — The sign of tradition is also the sign of revolutionaries. The sign of reserve is the one associated with the impressive debauchery of the Roman festival of Saturnalia.
Saturn, your ruling planet, is considered the very stalwart of stuck, but is in reality the most dependable agent of change. You are similarly versatile, embracing the new with a mix of eagerness and skepticism, and honoring tradition as a source of information about right now. That, and you think that old books smell interesting. You probably sniff every old book that you pick up.
Capricorn is the sign of all things old and ancient. Caesar said it was his sign of ‘good luck’ and is still associated with him today. You may love to go to estate sales and visit antique shops, not only because you like old things but because you like to contemplate the way things were in different times in history.
You believe that there are lessons to be learned from the past, and we would all be better off for learning them. The past makes sense to you, and so do the reasons for leaving elements of it behind, particularly the useless ideas that don’t work (but we’ll keep that 1924 egg slicer).
Reputed to be an ambitious, hard worker, this is usually true, but the part about being ruthless is more of a myth than anything else. You prefer to get things done by agreement and arrangement rather than by force, but you’ll take authority if you have to, because someone has to be in charge and it’s better if that someone has a clue.
You’re not as boring as you like people to think you are; really, you’re easy to please and if the sex is good, your life is good. Well, that and it’s nice to have a good job where your skills are tested and where you can grow and develop. You have great political skills and are one of the best people to plot and scheme with. You understand the deviant side of human nature.
Capricorn is crispy on the outside and deeply sensitive on the inside, a fact which most people may miss and which you would do well to inform them (by your actions), so they know. You prefer the squishy kind of person as a partner, as in emotionally open (in a way that seems daring to you), but they also have to inhabit their gender in a conscious way.
This is the sign of the winter solstice, associated with the dark days of impending cold; you love the security of the home fires burning. Capricorn is an earth sign, of a cardinal type; the planet that rules your sign is Saturn. Study the position of Saturn in your chart and you will learn a lot about yourself — promise.
