Your guide to understanding the energy of Capricorn season and how you can make the most of this time.
Dates: December 22 - January 19
The entry of the Sun into the zodiac sign of Capricorn inaugurates Winter. It is the Solstice, the period of the year in which solar radiation is minimal, and the hours of darkness prevail over those of light. In nature, subjected to bad weather, the vegetation seems to be asleep, but in the heart of the earth, the seed is preparing for the future to come to light in spring.
The Symbol of the Capricorn
A goat with the tail of a fish symbolizes facing fear and also creating panic. It is a sign that represents always being ready to transform into something else that enables us to scare things off that we may be afraid of as we hold that power ourselves. The symbol of the Capricorn speaks of the natural chain reaction to fear and what will happen when we do not face the fears within ourselves.
Attributes of the Capricorn sign
People strongly characterized by Capricorn are often introverted, thoughtful, and thoughtful. They are capable of great concentration. Saturn gives the zodiac sign rationality and tenacity, the ability to resist difficult conditions. In winter, nature almost closes in on itself to withstand adverse climatic conditions: a barren, icy landscape, but which contains within it the movement that will give life to the future, the intentions destined to germinate in spring.
The psychological nature of Capricorn faithfully reflects this situation: solid and determined, the natives of this zodiac sign are capable of pursuing their projects with patience and under prohibitive conditions. Very introverted, they are not afraid of isolation and often seek solitude. They love silence and tranquility. They have excellent vision and are far-sighted and patient. Saturn gives them a sense of Time: Capricorn knows that achieving something lasting as it takes time and perseverance.
Utilize the energy of this Capricorn Season
Utilize the energy of the Capricorn Season, as they are often ambitious, and, like the goat that represents them, they want to reach the top. They work hard to achieve success in the material field. Still, we must not forget that this zodiac sign embodies a vigorous drive toward the Beyond, towards transcendental goals and objectives, not just material. Spiritually, the Sun in Capricorn is at its lowest point but marks the apex of the inner human path: the inner Zenith, which corresponds to the outer Nadir of the visible path of the Sun. It is the Midnight Sun, which symbolically alludes to the secret of realization; Initiatory.
Shadow side of Capricorns
Emotionally, Capricorn natives can be like that barren, cold land: apparently emotionless, cold, and detached, almost fearful of getting caught up in the seething world of emotions and sensations. In reality, they are affectionately warm and tend to establish lasting and constant relationships over time. Before the outer ice melts and opens up, it just takes some time. Capricorns are practical and concrete, and you can always count on their common sense. Almost always as even the indestructible Capricorns have their weaknesses.
Capricorns are ambitious! It can be a point in favor, but often people marked by this zodiac sign tend to subordinate everything, including emotions and their emotional life, to their goals. For example, they easily slip into work addiction or "workaholics" unable to quit their jobs, or their duties, until they have finished everything. And as they say, with precision and efficiency, neglecting their emotional needs, with the risk of becoming arid, cynical people, projected only towards the material world.
Rigidity is another weakness, or shadow side, of Capricorns. They can have excessive formalism, the attachment to exteriority, to status symbols, to the point of leading to the most reactionary traditionalism. Closure or blind attachment to one's own small world are some of the possible outlets. Other shadow sides can be dryness, the fear of getting involved in emotions, or excessive rationality. These are all attitudes that, in reality, only hide the fear of letting go, defending oneself, and preserving one's identity.
