Governded By Saturn
Capricorn’s ruler Saturn gets a bad reputation in astrology. Saturn is considered one of the colder energies. It isn’t lovey-dovey like Venus or nurturing like the Moon. Saturn doesn’t give out bountiful blessings and abundance like Jupiter. With Saturn, we earn our keep. It is very much the karmic energy of reaping what we have sown.
Karma is not the bad boogie man that it is made out to be. Karma is neutral and a manifestation of the energy we have earned. Depending on how accountable and responsible we choose to be, Capricorn/ Saturn affirms our good deeds and hard work or burdens us with our poor decisions and actions.
Capricorn season encourages us to embody maturity and adulthood. While Capricorn is one of the signs of cardinal change, these changes can only happen if we are willing to see our realities for what they are and take the necessary steps to be accountable for the trajectory of our lives.
With 2022 drawing to a close, we must reconcile for ourselves if we have lived up to everything we thought we would achieve this year. The more we are able to be honest with ourselves about our successes or failures the better we will be at creating those plans that allow us to correct ourselves and move forward successfully.
Moving On A Master Plan
As a cardinal action sign, Capricorn is all about creating changes in a practical manner. So, we would all do well to embrace change that brings tangible results. Now is the time to put in the work. Don’t talk. Work. Actions mean far more than words at this time. This is not the energy for resting on our laurels hoping that something will fall from the sky to improve our lives.
Capricorn understands that we are here to make something of ourselves in this physical experience. These are the people who look back at their lives and see the results of their efforts, so this is the energy that we are encouraged to embody over the next 30 days.
What is your plan for your life? For some, this is a hard question to answer. Nevertheless, Capricorn asks us to get real about why we are here, and what we plan to do with being on this earth. All too often, people don’t achieve the success that they desire because they don’t have a plan. The energy of Capricorn season encourages us to create a plan for our lives, and the end of the year and the beginning of a new year is the perfect time to get started.
If you’re not much of a planner, start small. Capricorn energy promotes taking action…even its small steps to get to where we want to be. Make a plan for the next 30 days, then try the next three months, then the six months. Capricorn is always looking ahead. These are the people who have a 5-year or 10-year plan. This may seem extreme to some, but this allows Capricorn to direct their efforts towards what matters, and it keeps them on track.
Thus, Capricorn season calls us to consider where we want to be in our lives and get to making a plan for execution.
Willing To Climb Mountains For Success
Now that we have a plan ready for execution, Capricorn says get to work! This zodiac sign is all about putting in hard work and effort to reach success. Good things come to those who are willing to work for them. True to the nature of Capricorn and Saturn, there may be delays. There may be obstacles to overcome. Sometimes plans will have to be changed. Sometimes it may even feel like nothing is going our way.
But don’t give up! Capricorn never gives up, and neither should you. Capricorn also rules time, and it takes time to achieve success that has longevity. Whether you want to start a business, lose weight, or finish school, it’s important to keep pushing forward. We all will reach the mountaintop if we stay the course.
Let’s all do ourselves a favor this Capricorn season and put in the work to get the physical symbols and displays of success we desire.
Emotional Self Control For The Win
One of the reasons Capricorn is able to get ahead in life is due to self-control. While Capricorn’s opposite sign, Cancer, is very much the nurturing, mother figure invested in emotional expression, Capricorn is more of the stiff-lipped emotionally distant yet practical father figure that is always there to provide you with practical assistance.
While you won’t get a hug, Capricorn energy teaches us how to take care of ourselves. Emotional self-control allows us to avoid the distractions that move us off our path. When we allow our emotions to rule us even the best laid-out plans can easily be trashed on a whim. We are advised to take a page out of Capricorn’s book and harness emotional self-control to obtain the success we desire.
It is important to note that Capricorn’s emotional control is often perceived as coldness. While it is true that Capricorn is not the most emotionally expressive, this energy understands that there is a time and place for everything. So, we may want to be careful about open displays of affection during Capricorn season. Keep it professional in public and intimate in private.
Ultimately, Capricorn season is all about being accountable and responsible for ourselves so that we can experience tangible results due to our efforts. Yes, Capricorn/Saturn energy is serious, but that’s exactly what’s needed to get things done. Since we are wrapping up the old and beginning the new, Capricorn offers us clarity about what we have done and where we would like to be so that we can make practical changes that lead to success.
Here’s to embodying the energy of accountability, responsibility, self-control, hard work, and determination to reach our goals this Capricorn season and beyond.
