Sun in Capricorn

How well can you see in the dark? The sun is what our world revolves around, what gives our planet light, warmth and life. The light of the sun allows us to see and make sense of our surroundings. Every year, the Earth comes to the same spot relative to the Sun, and we have organized our calendars and celebrations to this cycle. As a result, our world figuratively and literally revolves around the Sun. The sign the Sun was in at your birth tells you what season your life revolves around, the way you individuate yourself, your own “light” that you shine forth.

Capricorn is a nocturnal cardinal earth sign ruled by Saturn, which means that a person born when the Sun was in Capricorn individuates themselves in a way that is characteristic of Saturn. It’s the sign of the boss, the task master, the party pooper. They’re serious, stern and stoic, yuppies, useful and utilitarian, cold, cruel and callous, busy bees, brown-nosers, and sometimes a bit of a bummer.

Once the Sun enters Capricorn, the holiday season hangover begins, the year ends and we celebrate New Year’s, which is all about the passage of time, reminder across the board of the inescapable fact that we are all getting older and time marches on. People reflect on the failures of the past year and make resolutions for the new year. If this all sounds a bit grim, well, that’s Saturn’s speciality and Saturn rules Capricorn.

Saturn is about order, structure, tradition, hierarchy, caution. It’s cold. It’s hard. It’s maturity. Responsibility. Adulting. Capricorn is associated with our skeletal structure, our bones, the hard parts of ourselves that hold us up and the only parts of ourselves that can last a long time after we die. Capricorn is naturally a more conservative sign, not necessarily in a political sense but as a general personality trait. It’s, a bit of a glum, cynical and lonely sign, but at the same time, Capricorns are known for their great ambition, scaling great heights by taking the slowest and surest path.

This is especially true if you were born during the day and/or with Leo or Capricorn Rising. If you were born at night, you may identify more with your Moon sign.

  1. Hi Patrick,

    I am a huge fan of the Astro twins and I saw you on their Starstruck Summit series. Your insight was so detailed and well-researched and I am so glad I found your site. However, as a Capricorn, I am so bummed when I read the general outline of my sign, we always sound awful and I know so many fellow caps that are light, giving and funny people. I would love to hear your thoughts on the positive attributes of our sign and how we can use our “seriousness” for good! I swear we have some. 🙂

    Either way, I am glad I found your work and I hope to book a reading with you soon.

    All the best,
    A not so crappy cap
