Hi loves! Welcome to Capricorn season!
Capricorn comes right after sweet and fun Sagittarius and brings a bit more seriousness into the air. The symbol for Capricorn is the sea goat— a half goat, half fish creature that is both deep and grounded. It’s a cardinal earth sign, meaning it initiates, especially in regards to worldly matters. Capricorn thrives when there is structure and order. Here are some ways to get the most out of this season.
Capricorn is ruled by Saturn, and Saturn is known as the teacher. If you’re familiar with Hinduism or yogic philosophy at all, Saturn can be likened to Ganesha in this way. We know Ganesha as the mover of obstacles, but he’s also the creator of them. Saturn, too, teaches by way of obstacles and limitations. These lessons tend to show up in our lives in very trying ways, and
the best way to get through them is by cultivating self-discipline and creating structure. It’s a good time to focus and concentrate on the work that needs to be done. What lesson is being thrown on our path right now? Embrace those struggles and tests. It’s necessary for your evolution.
Reflection and Maturation.
Last season, we explored our morals and philosophies and came to better understand what it is we believe in and stand for. We were focused on growing, exploring, and expanding consciousness. Now Capricorn invites us to bring it all back in for reflection and maturation. In Capricorn season, we contract. We integrate our belief systems and morals into our daily life and mindset in a more meaningful way. Shave off the parts of your life that don’t align with the path
you want to be walking. It’s time to release those aspects that are distracting you from your purpose here. Get serious about your goals, intentions, and projects, and start living the life you envision for yourself.
Duty and Responsibility.
Capricorn corresponds to the 10th house, which is all about vocation, career, external authority, and legacy. This season encourages you to double down on your life’s work. What are you on the earth to do? What’s your job here? Either continue to work toward actualizing that purpose or take the time to consider what it might be. (We all have one.) This season encourages you to take responsibility for the outcome of your life. You’ve arrived where you are now due to all the decisions you’ve made and actions you’ve taken up until this point. Humans are incredibly powerful beings, and Capricorn wants us to acknowledge that. This time gives us the push needed to use our power in service of the world. Hone in on that and make moves!
Capricorn season is all about integrity. So be true to yourself, be real with others, work hard, and stand up for what you believe in. Find a daily routine that emphasizes productivity and stick to it this season. Time to buckle down and get to work, friends!
