Personality Traits of Capricorn: Our birthday greetings to all Capricorns one of the most hardworking yet misunderstood signs of the Zodiac. Ruled by Saturn, those born under this sign seem to be working and struggling so much that they often represent just a "cash register" to the family! Although there are Capricorns who can really procrastinate (especially if they have Venus in luxury loving Sagittarius), they usually become workaholics and accumulate many assets in order to sublimate their emotions. They have a strong need to lead a structured and disciplined life. Many powerful industrialists and entrepreneurs were born under this sign. The symbol of Capricorn is the mountain goat, constantly striving to reach the top.
Capricorns like to learn by application of knowledge rather than through reading and theoretical discussions. They usually learn the hard way but their experience is very dependable. They make tough taskmasters but need to develop some humour (although they do have a dry wit). They can become too much bound by responsibilities and duty.
In love, Venus in Capricorn is caring but not demonstrative in an obvious manner. They like material assets like big houses and mahogany furniture. Capricorns tend to be rather lonely eagles and should spend time on social activities instead of just work. Their life is like "Sunshine after tears" but it would be in their longterm interest to enjoy the sunshine a little earlier!
Capricorns went through a testing period in 2010 till Aug 2011. Those of you born late Capricorn have the same new 7 year period starting Oct 2011 till Oct 2012. All Capricorns are also going through a major transformation which make you completely re-evaluate your attitude towards life and the only way to offset this is to go along with it and make as many changes within yourself voluntarily as possible. Depending on your Venus position, this may extend to love matters and relationships as well..
Till April 2012, many new opportunities will develop for you and you will especially benefit from travel, foreign lands, foreign people and foreign cultures. This is a very positive transit for self-growth and you will become more confident and positive. Be ready for new opportunities. This is particularly a good time for writers, publishers, philosophers, teachers, and those involved with import/export business. It will also help those of you involved with building construction and any government work.
However, you will also encounter delays as you are in a new 7-year period. In general, any delays that come along should be seen as preparation for the next seven years of your life, in which you will wholeheartedly begin to establish yourself. Establish longterm goals for the next few years and look for secure investments. Now is the time to spend more time with the family, children and if you have been too busy just working, to start a family or move to a bigger place.
Oct 2011 till Oct 2012 will be an excellent time to take trade courses and those that affect your profession directly.
With Pluto in the Capricorn, there is a need for a complete reevaluation of your mission in life as it opposes your Sun Sign. This is a very slow moving planet and depending on whether you were born early or later in your sign, but eventually Pluto will oppose your natal Sun. The only way to offset a Pluto aspect is to go along with it and make as many radical changes in your personality as possible and to make an effort to understand the reasoning behind events as the happen. Use this once in a lifetime transit by reevaluating the last few years in a new light and understanding the reason behind events. This transits makes you feel as if your goals are being thwarted by events or situations which are beyond your control.
When Mars makes an adverse aspect to your Neptune, this transit reduces the immune system of the body and you are more prone to scandals, out of wedlock pregnancies and other nightmares scenarios.
Depending on the age group listed below, you are also more prone to stress related illnesses including the flu and generally need to be careful that you don't set yourself up for a nightmare period. Be extra careful when signing any documents, investing in stocks on going to psychics or tarot card readers (astrologers are a bit more dependable!).
You also need to be extra careful with the ocean (drowning incidents) or being kidnapped! Of course this doesn't happen all the time but at least don't put yourself in that position. False accusations, feelings of betrayal and being a victim of scam artists is also a hallmark of this transit.
Here are the dates given for the different age groups: (For the exact dates, you should consider having Your 12 Month Forecast done):
Everyone born in 20s and 60s: There is a very stressful period from mid Aug 2012 till mid Oct 2012 for those of you born in the 60’s (lot of Hollywood actors) as well as the 20’s age group (Age of the Golden Movies who have to be careful of heart because of their age anyway and stress related illnesses). 60s age group has Neptune in Scorpio and is the most radical (Princess Diana's accident happened during a Mars Neptune transit).
