Capricorn Baby

Favorite phrase: “I’m all grown up”

Good Points:     Trustworthy, intelligent, disciplined, and ambitious

Bad Points:        Conventional, critical, over-cautious, and fussy

Capricorn babies may astound you and make you feel slightly unnerved with their mystifying maturity. When your baby looks at you with those serious, intelligent eyes, you’ll be left wondering exactly who is the child, and who is the parent! Much to your disappointment, baby talk will soon be replaced by more sensible unintelligible, chatter. Practical Capricorn children just cant wait to be all grown up; they’re extremely disciplined and responsible, taking all their tasks much more seriously than their playmates. Your astute 2little Capricorn learns quickly, and once an idea is grasped it will never be forgotten. So be prepared to attend all her school prize-giving ceremonies. Open displays of anger are rare and are only likely to occur when you don’t take her words of wisdom seriously. Just because she’s only little, it doesn’t mean she doesn’t know what’s best! Being more timid and shy than other more out-going zodiac signs, she’ll never deliberately draw attention to herself. Don’t worry if at tim
es she seems a little inhibited in company – in later years her caution will be a blessing. In any case, once a friendship is formed it will last and last – probably through teenage years and into adulthood. This child’s loyalty knows no limits. If your baby is a Capricorn you may well be able to plan an early retirement as Capricorns tend to grow up to be extremely shrewd business minded individuals. This tendency will display itself very early in life; as soon as your Capricorn infant can talk they will begin negotiations about exactly how many sweets they should earn for keeping their toys tidy. The Capricorn child loves to understand how things work and so you may need to keep any clocks, radios and remote controls well out of their reach. When they start school the Capricorn youngster will be instantly attracted to anything mechanical that they can play with. Once they have discovered how to take things apart they become quite adept at building their own little machines, usually made out of the contents of your kitchen cupboards! The Capricorn baby has a plan from day one and will definitely stick to it! A bit on the serious side, this is a child who is disciplined, methodical and highly organized to boot. Is this really a child?! Well, yes and no. Not adventurously inclined, the Capricorn baby seems almost dull, but they are simply taking time with things, learning lessons slowly so as to learn them well. This child enjoys feeling important from an early age, so don’t hesitate to give them responsibilities. The Cap baby is up to the task! They also understand things better as they get older and appreciate the merits of a reward system. Good deeds are repaid in kind! This babe will rejoice and will happily live with that precept in mind. When it comes to learning, the Cap baby shouldn’t be rushed, preferring to follow their own pace of discovery. Early lessons will be organizational, which is how this tot’s mind operates. Organizing the play group will be play indeed. As with everything, the Cap baby will be hyper-focused and determined. Even speaking will be undertaken with great effort and diligence, leading many Cap babies to bypass babbling and go straight to chatter! To sum up, the Capricorn baby prefers to play it safe, enjoying the efforts of a job well done.

Capricorn Child

image10

The Capricorn child is that kid who looks and acts like an adult from an early age. The stock market whiz of the family? Pretty much. Entrepreneurial from early on, the Cap child has a plan, and that’s to be king of the hill and top of the heap. And you can bet that this plan will be mapped out in great detail! What can you expect from this Cap youngster? Well, for starters, business schemes. It’s the Cap child who would set up a lemonade stand and hire “employees” to run it for them! Fear not, though; the Cap kid is fair, so those other pups helping out will be well taken care of. Cautious and responsible, the Capricorn child is not likely to attempt anything that doesn’t have a good chance of succeeding. This kid will leave the mountain-climbing to someone else while they keep their feet firmly planted on the ground (Capricorn is an Earth sign, after all). It’s the Cap child who should be the likely choice when finding someone to look after others. These kids have a way with their peers and will surely keep everyone in ship-shape. The perfectionist in the Cap child ensures that this is someone who will work hard for that allowance, too. No goofball here — this is a serious child with big aspirations!

Capricorn Girl

A Capricorn girl has a difficult time seeing that there is more to life than work. She is both studious and hard-working, necessary elements for someone as ambitious as herself. Not only is she a member of the National Honor Society, she’s also at the top of her class. She’s likely to be friends with people who will help get her where she wants to go in life. A bit quiet at times, she nevertheless knows exactly what she wants and will wait for it to happen. She’ll need support and encouragement so she won’t take life too seriously. Conservative and rarely risking too much, she is likely to dress in a preppy style. However, she’ll spice up her look a bit if it will help her agenda for success. Otherwise, she has a traditional take on both hair and clothes. As Capricorn rules the knees, she’ll need to watch herself on the Stairmaster or she might wind up hobbling around. Practical and realistic, she is careful not to get in over her head. Her great organizational ability combines with her diligence to help her achieve her goals. With a cautious approach to life, she isn’t likely to be a daredevil. Certainly, she will have her homework done before she goes out with her friends and will be home well before curfew. She’ll easily do well in school, as that’s a good start on the road toward being CEO of a billion-dollar corporation.

Capricorn Boy

The Capricorn young man has barely any free time since he’s too busy stuimage8dying and working on his life plan. He’s a serious guy who has his head on far more “important” things than socializing and other frivolousness. While he doesn’t intend to be rude, he can be a bit bossy at times due to his strong desire to achieve his goals. In fact, this young man is generally quite polite; he understands that making enemies will not help him achieve his goals in life. In his leisure time, the Capricorn boy enjoys competition with other people, team sports in particular. He’ll need some support and comfort if the team loses since it can be rather difficult for him to cope with losing. One-on-one competition also appeals to him. He might especially enjoy golf and martial arts. Practical and reliable, he can be trusted with the keys to the new car. At the end of the day, a Cap boy wants eventually to be surrounded by objects and symbols of his own success. He is scheming for success morning, noon and night which is why his hobby is probably following the stock market. All this planning is sure to pay off since he’ll someday rule the world.


Capricorn and Independence
: Capricorns are very independent because they know their capabilities and therefore they rarely trust others to finish details, they like to do it all themselves. Capricorn is the longer of all zodiac signs.

Capricorn and Friendship: The Capricorn is the strong friend, they will always be there to help, and they are very sympathetic, caring and helpful to a friend in need. A Capricorn will get someone back on their feet again with a steady plan for success and for all this, they expect nothing in return. The Capricorn friend is deep and mysterious and full of intrigue, there always seems to be something going on in their mind.

Capricorn and Business: The Capricorn personality is geared towards that of leadership and achievement, they always want to climb the corporate ladder and be the best they can be. Capricorns have excellent sense of time and manage it very well, they are excellent organizers. Capricorns are very creative, not spontaneously creative but it is incorporated into their time management skills and their ideas for executing a plan. Capricorns make good, wise investments because they look at the long term and what will be the most beneficial down the road.

Capricorn and Temperament: Capricorns might seem melancholy and stern because they livimage23e by self-discipline and responsibility. They evaluate everything and they don’t take daring chances without weighing the advantages and disadvantages first. To the onlooker, they might seem boring but it is the serious drive and structured way of life that the Capricorn feels safe with. Capricorn’s self-sufficiency is often mistook for coldness, they are not as cold as they seem, this might be apparent just because Capricorns like to do everything themselves this way there is no worry about something not finished or not done properly. It is all about control of their surroundings and their daily lives and sometimes this spills into other people’s lives. They believe they can give structure and organize other people’s lives too, which they can but others might see this as intrusive and not welcome the Capricorn’s suggested changes. According to Capricorn, there is only a right way and a wrong way to do things and this idea makes some Capricorns closed minded, stubborn and reluctant to agree with others. This is an ongoing lesson for Capricorns, knowing that there is more then one way of doing things and even though their way is usually right, it does not mean that they have to impose their ways on others.

Capimage16Capricorn Deep Inside: Capricorns have this sense of melancholy and necessity for structure and work because inside they feel they are unworthy and need to continuously prove their worth. Once they realize that all they need is self-love, door will open and they will see the world in a new light, one that allows for pleasure and guilt-free fun. Capricorns most important need is security, financial and material security. This is the driving force behind their ambitious character and all other personality traits of desire to succeed. They are very concerned with their public standing and their prestige. Capricorns are loners but they also need to feel appreciated, but they are excellent at hiding this truth. Capricorns are very self contained and they have many faces they present to the world, they are known as aloof and indifferent but this is them concealing themselves from the world, unfortunately, they may never know who they really are. This causes feelings of insecurity and causes them to question their own self worth. Capricorns make it difficult to get close emotionally because once they let someone in, they do not want to let them go and emotional connection makes them feel vulnerable yet satisfied at he same time. This is an ongoing internal conflict of contradictions inside the Capricorn’s mind.

14-capricorn-fantasy-artworkCapricorn in a Nutshell: Capricorns are very ambitious people, they always have something they are pursuing and they want their lives to be fulfilled and important. Capricorns are extremely patient and will wait a long time for something they want, when the opportunity arises, they will plan their steps carefully to others, they might appear hesitant but this is not true, they know that there is only one chance to succeed and they are filing together their information to take the proper steps to accomplish their goal with flying colors, not just second rate. Capricorns have a very active mind and strong powers of concentration. Capricorns like being in control of their surroundings and everyone in their life. Capricorns are very cautious but this only to survey the situation before leaping in, they will never make a hasty jump in. They accept change but introduce it slowly so they can get used to it and incorporate it into their life. Capricorns tend to see life in black or white, definitive only. There are no gray areas for these are areas that are not understood and this makes Capricorn feel uncomfortable. They tend to be in control in a romantic relationship that way they are never vulnerable to another person.

capricorn-joseph-soiza Capricorn Health

Capricorn, the Sea Goat, is the third sign of the Earth triplicity and the tenth sign of the tropical zodiac. This loyal, but ambitious sign is ruled by Saturn (structure; karma) and is the exaltation of Mars (action; passion). The key phrase for Capricorn is “I use”.

Saturn, considered the great malefic, harbinger of stasis and disease and also the planet of structure and reality, is the ruler of Capricorn. This is the sign of personal independence and the struggle for economic security.
Capricorn people have knowledge of practical affairs; prudent habits teach them to utilize everything they see and hear. They are adept at finding solutions and are neat and methodical in their work. They like their money and have frugal instincts. Capricorns often look older or more mature when they are young and are prone to be weak when young. However, when they reach middle age, the reverse occurs. They seem to defy the aging process and retain a remarkably youthful appearance well into old age. Good dietary habits, if learned in their youth, tend to stay with them as adults. Their innate spirit of competition makes them enthusiastic in business and great sporting competitors.

Capricorn Rules the Knees

Each sign has internal, external and structural rulbloody_zodiac__capricorn__by_vasylina-d6l5wpser ships. Externally, Capricorn rules the joints (especially the knees), hair, teeth and skin; internally, the mucous membranes, the peripheral nerves and portions of the stomach. Structurally, it rules the skeleton, bones and patella.

The Sun is weak in this sign, but Capricorn does tend towards longevity unless afflicted by the Moon or Saturn. Many diseases result from business anxieties. The accidents from this sign are broken bones, sprains, dislocations and hurts from the knees and below. Sensitive skin, allergies, and broken bones are problems, while worrying too much can also result in physical disorders. Capricorn suffers from insecurity and anxiety in youth, but blossoms under Saturn in the later years. Capricorn people do not readily yield to disease, but once sick they hold onto the symptoms and can become hypochondriacs. Worry and anguish can also result in health problems like heart attacks if they are not careful to relieve their stress with proper exercise. The pathological tendencies are crystallization, dryness and constriction. Routine massage and foot reflexology can be of considerable benefit.

You & Your Capricorn

image12

Do…

… Discover what outward image most appeals to your Capricorn — and adopt it. A Capricorn is likely to respond quickly to this, as appearances mean a lot to this Sign.

… Be understanding of your Capricorn’s devotion to work and desire to succeed. They will want to succeed for your sake as well as their own.

… Give your Capricorn thoughtful gifts that show your devotion and your ability to manage your bank account. They will appreciate the gesture, as well as the way you manage your money.

… Be patient and understand that good things come to those who wait. Capricorn, once ready, will commit to you completely and will become the most dependable and constant force in your life.

… Always mean what you say and do what you say you will do. Your Capricorn will show you how to be persistent, faithful and dedicated.

Don’t…

… Even think about making your Goat look stupid in public! Caps hate being humiliated, especially in front of others.

… Be too wildly extravagant with the purchases you make — your Capricorn may make you return what you bought. This Sign does not approve of frivolous spending, even on their behalf.

… Go back on your word. This Sign appreciates integrity and follow-through much more than fancy speeches and empty promises.

… Expect this Sign to relax after a few dates. Capricorn is the most serious of all the Signs, and it may take a while for them to lighten up.

… Criticize your Cap for being so devoted to their job, their family or anything else; if you do, you’re criticizing what makes them special. Capricorns possess a deep sense of loyalty and will always work for the benefit of the people and causes that they consider important.

The Cimage17apricorn in Love: In a relationship, Capricorns are a slow starters, but prove to be explosive performers and long-lasting, loyal companions. They are quite skilled with people, once they overcome their initial reserve.When aroused, Capricorns are enthusiastic and adventurous in the art of love, but can be possessive and jealous when threatened. Partners can sometimes be overwhelmed by the intensity of their passion, coming as it does from beneath such a cool exterior. In marriage they are loyal, good providers and strive to develop a strong home environment.
Capricorns strive to conceal their vulnerability beneath a confident veneer of ambition and material success, but passionate Mars is always bubbling just below the surface. When the curtain is lifted, the passion flows like lava from an erupting volcano. Indeed, when they are sure of their ground, they delight in living up to the randy reputation of the Goat. Your kisses are intense moments of sublime relief from the stress of your day.

 

Love Insight
Be stylish, interesting, and upscale to get a Capricorns attention. To win their heart, prove you’re consistent, responsible, financially independent, and totally loyal. Seems like a tall order, and yes mr/ms Cap can be controlling, but the benefits far outweigh the drawbacks.

Capricorn-Aries: Anything is possible, once they agree.image18

Capricorn -Taurus: In-sync and happy to be in their own company.
Capricorn -Gemini: Different mind-set, but they can teach each other.
Capricorn -Cancer: They’re opposites who are complete when linked.
Capricorn -Leo: A high level of public recognition works for both.
Capricorn -Virgo: Common goals, dreams, wishes – a winning formula!
Capricorn -Libra: When the going gets tough, they’re supportive.
Capricorn -Scorpio: A force to be reckoned with – influential.
Capricorn -Sagittarius: They are both dedicated to their individual missions.
Capricorn -Capricorn: Life is bliss when you’re both reaching for the top.
Capricorn -Aquarius: Aquarian insightfulness and Cap practicality unites.
Capricorn -Pisces: They can access deeper levels within themselves.

Capricorn Erogenous Zone: The legs and especially the knees are very sensitive. Lightly tickle the backs of Capricorn’s knees and this will get them giggling with excitement and initiate foreplay.

Sex wimage14ith Capricorn: Capricorns have stamina, lots of it. They like nice, classy surroundings and a comfortable atmosphere. In the bedroom, they will last all night and want some more. They are very physical and good at what they can do. Do not expect any creative or zany positions, but expect it to be good.  Your sexuality is powerful and always thrumming just below the surface. Unfortunately, in your youth you tend to allow others to take the initiative, though this changes as you get older and become more self-confident.

Your insecurities can hold you back, though you have inner strength and a load of ambition. Ruled by Saturn, the god of karma and restraint, you may be frustrated in the pursuit of your desires, yet have the ability to keep pushing out the envelope until you finally achieve your goal.
The Goat is a randy beast, so despite your self-consciousness, you have deep-seated desires that somehow just keep thrusting up to the surface. You are open to sexual experiment, but as a rule, prefer not to take the initiative until you are sure of your ground.
You are fundamentally loyal and need a suitably supportive partner to whom you will remain faithful, once you have committed yourself. However, should that person prove unfaithful, the green eyed demon of jealousy will emerge with a vengeance. Some Capricorns are sexually repressed and can appear frigid or disinterested. This can be overcome by a caring partner who is prepared spend some time and delicate experimentation finding out what turns you on.
For example, oral stimulation may just be the trigger to wake your sleeping beauty! Once awoken, she is hard to shut down again, so admirers should realize that Capricorn is really in it for the long haul, even when apparently undergoing a more promiscuous stage.
Famous Capricorns Include: Sir Isaac Newton, Richard Nixon, Louis Pasteur, Edgar Allen Poe, Elvis Presley, Michael Crawford, Phil Spector, Little Richard, Nostradamus, J. R. R. Tolkien, Kepler, David Bowie, Joan Baez, Joan of Arc and Muhammad Ali
Iimage15deal Jobs Include: Capricorns are well-suited to careers as generals, administrators, ministers, managers, computer wizards and engineers.
Lucky Numbers: 10, 28, 37, 46, 55
The Capricornian is one of the most stable and serious of the zodiacal types. These independent, rocklike characters have many sterling qualities, although admittedly some of these are as dull as they are worthy. This type is normally cautiously confident, strong willed and calm. Hardworking, unemotional, shrewd, practical, responsible, persevering they are capable of persisting for as long as is necessary they are reliable workers in almost any profession they undertake. But they are neither original nor creative and can only develop what others invent or initiate.

Within their limits, however, they are resourceful, determined managers, setting themselves and others high standards. Honest in their criticism of self, they respect discipline from above and demand it from those beneath them. In their slow, tough, stubborn, unyielding way they persist against boredom, frustration, and hardship to reach their objectives long after more brilliant and volatile subjects have given up. In fact when practical business ability allied with the drive of ambition and lust for power and wealth are required in employees to make a project succeed, Capricornians are the people to hire. They plan carefully to fulfill their ambitions (which often include becoming wealthy), are economical without meanness and able to achieve great results with minimum effort and expense. Because of their organizing ability they are able to work on several projects simultaneously. They love authority but may not be popular if they reach high rank, for, self-disciplined themselves, they expect their underlings to be equally so and to perform every task undertaken to the highest standard. They are, nevertheless, fair as well as demanding.

Among their equals they are not always the most pleasant of work fellows either, for they are reserved and too conservative, valuing tradition more than innovation, however valuable the latter, and they are often humorless. There is also a tendency to pessimism, melancholy and even surliness which many Capricornians are unable to keep to themselves, especially if they fail personally or do not achieve the corporate success which they had planned for their firms. They can spread gloom and tension in their circle which depresses everyone around them. In the extreme this trait can make them manic-depressive, ecstatic happiness alternating with the most wretched kind of misery for no reason that the subject of these emotions can name. The swings in mood are not the only reason Capricornians deserve the adjective based on their name – capricious. They can be surprisingly and suddenly witty and subtle for the dull, prosaic creatures they seem to be, and they also have a tendency to ruin everything earned by their caution and shrewdness by unexpected and utterly irresponsible bouts of flippancy. In individuals in whom the characteristic is strong, the temptation to do this has to be resisted with iron self-control. Another unexpected quality in some Capricornians is an interest in the occult which persists in spite of their naturally skeptical turn of mind. Their intellects are sometimes very subtle. They think profoundly though with little originality, have good memories and an insatiable yet methodical desire for knowledge.

image20

They are rational, logical and clearheaded, have good concentration, delight in debate in which they can show off their cleverness by luring their adversaries into traps and confounding them with logic. In their personal relationships they are often ill-at-ease, if not downright unhappy. They are self-centered, wary and suspicious of others, and in turn attract people who neither trust nor understand them. They prefer not to meddle with others nor to allow interference with themselves. Casual acquaintances they will treat with diplomacy, tact and, above all, reticence. They make few good friends but are intensely loyal to those they do make, and they are bitter, revengeful enemies. They sometimes dislike the opposite sex and test the waters of affection gingerly before judging the temperature right for marriage. Once married, however, they are faithful, though inclined to jealousy. Family life, if well ordered as they like it to be, more than balances the goat like inclination to lechery and inconstancy which some old authorities have ascribed to Capricorns. Besides those already mentioned, faults to which the type is prone are over-conventionality, bigotry, selfishness, avarice and miserliness, chronic complaining, incessant unnecessary worrying, and severity spilling over in
to cruelty. Their occupations can include most professions that have to do with maths or money and they are strongly attracted to music. They can be economists, financiers, bankers, speculators, contractors, managers and real estate brokers. They excel as bureaucrats, especially where projects demanding long-term planning and working are concerned and their skill in debate and love of dialectic make them good politicians. They are eimage22xcellent teachers, especially as principals of educational establishments where they have the authority to manage and organize without too much intimacy with the staff members. If working with their hands, they can become practical scientists, engineers, farmers and builders. The wit and flippancy which is characteristic of certain Capricornians may make some tur
n to entertainment as a career. Capricorn governs the knees, bones and skin, so its subjects may be liable to fractures
and strains of the knees and other defects of the legs. Skin diseases from rashes and boils to leprosy (in countries where that disease is prevalent) are dangers, and digestive upsets may be caused by the Capricorn’s tendency to worry or suppress emotions. Anemia, Bright’s disease, catarrh, deafness, rheumatism and rickets are also said to threaten the natives of this sign.

Capricornus, a name meaning Horned Goat in Latin, is one of the constellations of the zodiac. It is commonly called Capricorn, especially in astrology. It is commonly called the sea-goat, as it is in an area of the sky known as the Sea. Capricornus is one of the 88 modern constellations, and was also one of the 48 constellations listed by Ptolemy. Under its modern boundaries it is bordered by Aquila, Sagittarius, Microscopium, Piscis Austrinus and Aquarius.

Capricorn Mythology

image24

This constellation is one that has retained a mythological explanation which predates the Greeks. Capricorn, the Seagoat, is thought to be the image of a powerful Babylonian deity named Ea. He has the lower half of a fish and the head and torso of a goat. The god lived in the ocean. He came out every day to watch over the land, and he returned to the sea every night. The Greek version of this legend does not match with the physical description of the Seagoat. Greeks thought that the starry figure was Pan, a Greek demigod. Pan had the upper half of a man, but he had the legs of a goat. He was the son of Hermes and a forest nymph. According to legend, when the nymph saw her strange baby, she shrieked in fear and ran away. Hermes, however, loved his strange son. He took him to Olympus, where the other gods and goddesses also took a liking to Pan. He became the god of shepherds and flocks, taking the responsibility from his father. He did not dwell on Olympus; he preferred to live among the shady trees in the mountains. He amused himself by playing his beloved reed pipes (known as Panpipes), or by chasing nymphs through the woods. The constellation of Capricorn is called Capricornus. The association of the Goat with Capricornus dates back at least as far as ancient Babylon. Capricorn, the Seagoat, is thought to be the image of a powerful Babylonian deity named Ea. He has the lower half of a fish and the head and torso of a goat. The god lived in the ocean. He came out every day to watch over the land, and he returned to the sea every night.3

eek demigod. Pan had the upper half of a man, but he had the legs of a goat. He was the son of Hermes and a forest nymph. According to legend, when the nymph saw her strange baby, she shrieked in fear and ran away. Hermes, however, loved his strange son. He took him to Olympus, where the other gods and goddesses also took a liking to Pan. He became the god of shepherds and flocks, taking the responsibility from his father. He did not dwell on Olympus; he preferred to live among the shady trees in the mountains. He amused himself by playing his beloved reed pipes (known as Panpipes), or by chasing nymphs through the woods.

The Egyptians and Chinese recognized the Age of Capricorn as the commencement of the much anticipated rainy season. Immediately following Capricorn are Aquarius, the Water Bearer, pouring moisture upon the Earth, and Pisces, the Fish, immersed in the unseen life-giving forces of water.

Other Horned Gods:

Cernunnos, Pashupati, Puck, Pachacamac, Lord of the Winter, Hu Gadarn, Belatucadros, Osiris or Apis later combined to form the name Serapis …. among many others.

 

The God of the Wicca is the Horned God, the ancient God of Fertility: the God of forest, flock, and field and also of the hunt. He is Lord of Life, and the Giver of Life, yet He is also Lord of Death and Resurrection. For, like the Goddess, the nature of Her Horned Consort is also dual.
