Capricorn are never as conservative as they present, and remain acutely aware of which face to wear for which occasion. The Capricorn is always looking to do ‘well’ and ‘right’ in the eyes of others.
We have Taurus as the form aspect of Nature and Virgo as its beauty aspect. Capricorn represents the spiritual aspect, the transformed matter, which the light of the spirit can permeate.
Capricorn is traditionally connected to the mystery of the human soul and symbolizes the fertility process, the initiation, the cosmic birth and the crystallization of creativity into material form. This is the ability to apply streams of creativity into practical form and manipulate the material plane. Capricorn is the ancient sign of magic, and their understanding of the universal laws bring about the manifestation of the formless into form… so Capricorn create everything from nothing. The ability to paint a portrait isnt the only definition of creativity and art…
Capricorn’s bruises can be soothed by moon water, the open arms of healing, affection and love, the Lunar dream portal within him that takes him beyond time and space. The divine angel wings of Cancer flutter within him. There are twin themes of celestial power in this axis. Traditionally in astrology, Capricorn is understood to be the one of the closest occult signs, mentored by its ruler, Saturn, who governs life’s deepest karmic dynamics. The Moon is the ancient ruler of mysteries, the supernatural, the occult, witchcraft, ritual and psychic receptivity. And while Capricorn imagines the potential of the known, Cancer relishes in wondering through the infinite unknown.
