Planets in Capricorn
Capricorn symbol is Goat, and like a mountain goat, your desire is to climb higher and higher in every walk of life. This shows great ambition. You are self-confident and like to set lofty goals. You feel satisfied when others respect you for your capabilities. You do not avoid taking risks, but you are not reckless. All your actions are rehearsed before putting them into action.
Your relationships with others can be complicated. You can be very selfish, and have a h5 urge to acquire power that will raise your status in society. You look to be cool and calm, but below the surface you can be very emotional. You are quite self-motivated, and will manage to find opportunities whenever required. Your powers of concentration are good, but you can be rather unemotional and may have too high an opinion about yourself.
Astrology deals with ten planets, namely the Sun, the Moon (the two luminaries are considered planets in astrology), Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto. Minor celestial bodies, such as the Dark Moon, asteroids and the nodal axis, are also taken into account. Each planet has its precise function in the natal chart, and represents a specific energy. The planet’s action is influenced by the sign it tenants. It plays out primarily in the area of life indicated by the house where it is posited.
Capricorn Ruling Planet: Saturn
Saturn was known as the God of fertility and farming. The Romans celebrated Saturn in mid December to thank them for the harvest they received for the winter. This celebration was called Saturnalia where they exchanged fruits and gifts with one another and decorated their homes. Saturn in Capricorn gives them their planning and controling personality traits. Capricorns tend to have an older soul even when they are young, and this comes from "Old Man Saturn".
Your Capricorn planet wants to build things. Saturn rules Capricorn, so this energy seeks to erect structures or buildings, and to create careers or start up an organization. These planets know how to run things. They’re authority figures constantly marching, shaking their fingers, and saying things like "Better not", "Shouldn’t", and "Let’s not rush into this". Capricorn has a need to exercise caution and discipline, to set down rules and live by them, to sec boundaries, and to put plans in motion from within those limits. Contrary to popular opinion, they’re not humorless. Capricorn is the sign with the driest wit out there. Here’s where your sense of propriety and tradition will be strong, where doing things the old-fashioned way and paying respect to the elders will be the only way to go. Your Capricorn planets are also starved in some way. They want a return for the time they invest.
