Capricorn is traditionally ruled by the planet Saturn.
Physically it is related to the knees, and to a certain extent the joints,
skin and bones. It is said to have a feminine nature, and is therefore
more reactive in its energy expression. As a Cardinal sign Capricorn is
goal-oriented, and channels energy into strategic planning to
attain long-term results. As an Earth sign, goals tend to be practical
and related to material interests.
Planets in Capricorn will express themselves in a determined and serious
manner, striving for honour and some kind of recognition in society.
There is a desire and ability to reach the top through hard work and
perseverence. Status and executive power are important - as is social position.
There can be a certain formality and lack of spontaneity with planets in
this sign, due to setbacks at early stages of the life.
There is a tendency to control feelings and exert considerable
self-discipline, but it would be advantageous if a greater emotional
sensitivity and concern for others could be integrated into the nature.
You have rather conventional tastes and quite a strong sense of morality,
and you will be looking for qualities you can respect in a partner. You tend to judge
weaknesses rather severely and expect a high standard in your relationships.
As you are strongly motivated by your ambitions you may have a tendency to neglect
your emotional life in favour of your professional interests.
It is essential to find a balance between your professional and personal life.
Public commitments can often take priority over private,
though you will always be conscientious in your duty to the family.
Partners can find you rather stiff and unspontaneous, and although this
may be the case, you are normally loyal and responsible as regards family life.
You are generally a person who can be trusted. When your outer facade melts you can
be quite soft and sensual, and very devoted.
