Vedic Astrology and Capricorn
Many individuals pick up the paper and read
their horoscope, but few really understand the
Zodiac symbols or signs that they were born
under and what their true meaning is. With Vedic
Astrology, the study of the Zodiac is much more
personalized with the understanding that the
sun represents an individual's inner nature,
personalities, and characteristics.
Capricorn, the Sea Goat, who is a methodical
sure-footed climber, is a feminine sign and
the tenth sign under the Zodiac calendar. The
sea goat is half-goat and half-fish and symbolizes
the death of the lower mind and birth of the
spirit. In ancient times, the goat was a popular
animal that was often sacrificed to the Gods
as well. It is ruled by Saturn, which is known
for its power of structure and responsibility,
and the planet Mars, which is known for its
action and desire.
Saturn is the king that gives individuals who
are born under the Capricorn sign their karma,
which is strong. Capricorn is an earth sign
and individuals born under this sign tend to
be possessive and quite jealous in nature. These
individuals are also very goal-oriented and
know what it takes to get the job done, so they
are ambitious enough to try and acquire positions
that have power and authority or positions that
are admired by others.
Capricorn individuals are tenacious, logical,
and equipped with urge to work long and hard.
They will not hesitate at an opportunity to
advanced or be promoted. They have a will to
succeed in their strong will for personal ambition.
These individuals are ambitious and are determined
to succeed no matter what it may take and have
the natural abilities of being executives or
Early in life they have to learn how to overcome
insecurities, but they will soon become grounded
and succeed due to their initiative and overwhelming
willingness to accept responsibilities.
One of the downfalls of Capricorns is that their
pride is so strong that it makes it hard for
them to admit whenever they are wrong or, when
they are in need of assistance, to be able to
ask others for help. They lack confidence that
tends to make them defensive and even compete
more aggressively to make up for this lack of
confidence. They view this insecurity and their
fears as a great weakness and try to hide these
feelings and any other similar feelings from
others, which does make it hard for others to
become close to Capricorns. These individuals
need a structured guideline to follow to obtain
their goals, because if not, then they will
often lose their way.
Capricorns are constantly in search of reaching
the top and are happy to work hard and long
to get what needs to be done to finish a job.
Their readiness and energy is worthy in any
given situation, but they can be lazy if they
feel there is no need in working or if the same
results can be achieved in another manner. Capricorns
often fail to see the point of personal jokes,
but their sense of humor is impeccable. They
do hold grudges and beware for they might seek
revenge as a result.
Capricorns tend to be builders, engineer, lawyers,
business executives, and even politicians. Once
they gain an understanding of a situation, then
they are capable of easily manipulating it.
These Capricorns live with traditional values,
regulations, and rules along with thought and
actions of proper behavior. At times, later
in life these might be rejected.
Capricorns will develop good eating habits at
an early age that they will keep with them as
adults. They are actively competitive in sports
and are known to be aggressive in their determination
to win, but are gracious with losing. Capricorns
enjoy participating in jogging, running, skating,
hunting, wrestling, boxing, body building, and
