Capricorn Overview

Capricorn, also known as "crocodile" or मकर (makara) in Sanskrit, possesses a distinct set of qualities:

  • Sign of the Makara: Capricorn natives are known for their peculiarity and strength. They are highly intelligent but can sometimes have a mean streak.
  • Ruled by Saturn: Saturn, the planet of karma, poverty, disease, austerity, and mysticism, governs Capricorn. Individuals influenced by Saturn are often somber and mysterious.
  • An earth sign: Capricorn moon individuals are grounded, thoughtful, and practical.
  • A movable sign: People born under Capricorn are fluid, spontaneous, and fond of change.
  • A feminine sign: Capricorn natives are receptive, sensitive, and empathetic.

Traits of the Sun in Capricorn

In Western astrology, a person's zodiac sign is determined by the position of the Sun at the time of their birth. If you were born on December 29th, you are considered a Capricorn. Here are some general traits associated with Capricorn:

  • Natural business acumen: Capricorns are drawn to business, trade, and money-making ventures. They excel in independent and competitive business environments. However, it is essential to guard against unethical practices by giving back to society through charitable acts.
  • Love for exploration: Capricorns enjoy traveling, discovering new places, and meeting people from different cultures. They thrive in careers or professions that involve regular travel.
  • Strong digestion: Capricorns have a robust appetite and a good metabolism. This contributes to their overall physical health and well-being. Ayurveda suggests that a strong digestion is crucial for maintaining good health.

  • Diverse professional pursuits: Capricorns possess a wide range of interests and are likely to pursue various careers throughout their lives. It is important to avoid abandoning good opportunities out of boredom. Flexibility in taking up side jobs or hobbies can prevent sacrificing financial stability.

Capricorn natives are known for their diligent work ethic and can excel in a variety of professions. Some recommended careers for Capricorns include law, writing, science, philosophy, teaching, detective work, financial advising, administration, and entrepreneurship. However, careers involving negotiation or compromise may not be the best fit for Capricorns.

ॐ वामनाय​ नमः (Om kurma-devaya namaha)
