Capricorn

Capricorn, the tenth sign of the zodiac, is all about hard work. Those born under this sign are more than happy to put in a full day at the office, realizing that it will likely take a lot of those days to get to the top. That's no problem, since Capricorns are both ambitious and determined: they will get there.

CAPRICORN I The Week of the RULER - December 26 - January 2

 

Highly dependable, Capricorn I's are able to assume many of the responsibilities of daily life without complaint. Not necessarily leaders, they often assume the position of ruler by default, or take over because they can't bear to watch the way others are running things. Ruling their family, business, department or social organization is their forte, and they are excellent at delegating responsibility and seeing that things run smoothly, to the mutual advantage of all concerned.

 
Strengths: CAPABLE - HARD-WORKING - CONCERNED
 
Weaknesses: DOGMATIC - BOTTLED UP - TYRANNICAL
 

ADVICE: Let others take the lead more often. You may be wise, but remember that wise men learn more from fools than fools learn from wise men. Work hard at trying to admit mistakes when you make them. There is no particular merit in holding on to an outworn creed or outdated idea.

CAPRICORN II The Week of DETERMINATION January 3-9

 

Those born in the Week of Determination often have the drive and ambition necessary to reach the top of their profession. Whether or not they succeed, no one can fault them for not trying. Capricorn II's are strivers, like the mountain goat who seeks the highest crags. Once embarked on a course of action, they are extremely difficult to dissuade from their plans. No matter how great or modest their gifts, Capricorn II's make the most of their abilities and stretch their talents to the outer edge of the envelope. Capricorn II's are usually pictured as hard-headed, down-to-earth thinkers, but those born in the Week of Determination are often interested in the theoretical, even metaphysical, religious or spiritual subjects and practices. Nor are their ideas in these areas at all conservative; they may in fact be rather radical. No idea is too strange or far out for Capricorn II's to at least consider and they have the undeniable tendency to let their minds range over the broadest questions of cosmology and human existence. This philosophical bent, however, is usually based on fact and observation, for Capricorn II's have little time for idle or ill-founded speculation.

 
Strengths: RESILIENT, RESOURCEFUL, THEORETICAL
 
Weaknesses: NAIVE, ARMORED, WORKAHOLIC
 
Advice: Recognize your limitations - they do exist. Allow yourself to give in occasionally, even to fail and acknowledge it. Showing your more vulnerable side should not be threatening. Try to keep your ideals grounded and be sure your "reality" is not in fact an

illusion.

CAPRICORN III - The Week of DOMINANCE - January 10-16 

Many Capricorn III's find it unnecessary to rise to the top of their field, or even to lead, as long as they can express their dominance within the day-to-day dynamic of their family, work or social group. Although ambitious types may well be born in this week, Capricorn III's often reach a certain level in their particular circle and are content to stay there for the rest of their lives. They have tremendous diligence and dedication, which enable them to stick to the path they have set for themselves without being sidetracked.
 
Strengths: PROFESSIONAL - SURMOUNTING - MAINTAINING
 
Weaknesses: UNHEEDING - OUTRAGEOUS - SELF-SACRIFICING
 
Advice: Don't be afraid to take chances. If you do not dare to fail you may not achieve your true heart's desire. Your insistence on security may be misplaced at times. Try to be more flexible where the feelings of others are concerned. Don't assume that your values have absolute or universal application.

CAPRICORN-AQUARIUS CUSP - The Cusp of MYSTERY and IMAGINATION January 17-22

The vivid and expressive individuals born on the Capricorn-Aquarius cusp generate excitement wherever they go. Unable to keep out of action very long, they make their presence felt almost immediately on entering a room. Their viewpoints tend to be controversial, and whether conservative or radical are highly stimulating, often because of the dramatic way they are delivered. Capricorn-Aquarians' interest in the poor and downtrodden is more than theoretical: most of them will not hesitate to make direct contributions of time, money or energy to help anyone less fortunate than themselves. At the same time, however, they have little sympathy for those they see as freeloaders or parasites, able to pull their own weight but refusing to do so. 
 
Strengths: EXCITING - ENTERTAINING - LIGHTHEARTED
 
Weaknesses: CHAOTIC - DIFFICULT - ERUPTIVE
 

Advice: You must an outlet for your creative energy. Communicate what you experience. Try not to be discouraged by lack of understanding, ignorance or negative criticism. Don't go off the deep end, but, rather, find those who understand and appreciate you.
