elements12 2

Element - Earth; Mode - Cardinal; Season - Winter Solstice

Capricorn is the cardinal sign that belongs to the element earth. This combination represents a turning point in one’s life when we talk about qualities. As a stubborn zodiac sign that lives a structural life, it’s surprising to see these natives go for spiritual cleansing in order to achieve peace and sanity.

Winter Solstice

The Capricorn season begins with the commencement of the Winter Solstice. It is that time of the year when the earth is preparing itself to welcome the icy cold winds and the coldest time of the year. Capricorn’s harsh and distant nature is mirrored by the qualities of the winter season.

Cardinal Mode

Last of the four cardinal signs of the zodiac wheel, Capricorn is a firm leader. Governed by a great sense of intuition, they can tackle high authority tasks like a breeze.

Earth Element

Earth is the element of the Capricorn zodiac sign. Earth represents everything a Capricorn wants to accomplish -- all the material desires. Stiff, unmovable, Earth reflects the stubborn nature of the zodiac sign. Capricorn’s need to live in a structured world mirrors the very structure life is built upon, Earth.

Capricorn Planetary Rulership

Planetary

Ruled by Saturn, Capricorn lives a life full of responsibility and doesn’t seem to be bothered by it. These natives have to go through a deep cleansing process, which involves battling the issues from the past, and confronting them until clarity is achieved. These individuals build boundaries in personal and professional space. This is the reason why they live a happy life.

Domicile of Saturn

Saturn in Capricorn natives are ambitious, disciplined, and authoritative. They are knowledgeable, smart, and live life by the rules. Often born with typical Saturnian qualities, these folks are strong, independent, and materialistic.

The sense of responsibility that Saturn imposes on these individuals doesn’t bother them. Already aware of the rules of this competent world, Capricorn is ready to face anything that might come their way.

Detriment of The Moon

Moon is said to be in its detriment in Capricorn, which is why it has to try harder to compensate for the disadvantage. These natives keep their guards up all the time, making it difficult for others to become a part of their life. They take a long time to know someone before they get comfortable with them. Once their trust is broken, these individuals take a lifetime to trust anyone again.

Vulnerability is a weakness in their eyes, which is why they don’t let emotions impact their decision-making ability. It’s always hard for Capricorn to seek emotional support, and therefore, they become victims of depression and anxiety.

Exaltation of Mars

The planet of war and death is said to enjoy its exalted position in the zodiac sign Capricorn. Mars in Capricorn natives are driven by hard work. They are strategic and determined in turning their dreams into reality.

These individuals do well in business, sports, and life.

Fall Of Jupiter

Jupiter is said to be in its fall in Capricorn. Although the joyous sign Jupiter tries hard to show Capricorn natives the power of faith, this earth sign is too stubborn to envision change. Having achieved everything by their hard work, they don’t believe in luck or in the idea of superior energy.

Capricorn House Rulership

house rulership

The house ruler is the planet ruling the sign located at the cusp of the respective house in the horoscope.

The Tenth House

Capricorn is assigned the tenth house of career and social status. It’s all about high ambitions and finding a way to achieve them. And when we talk about ambitions, Capricorn is the first sign that pops up in our heads. So, it’s safe to say the tenth house is in sync with the typical Capricorn traits.

But everything is not all glowy for Capricorn in this house. When faced with bad choices made in the past, Capricorns feel guilty and vulnerable.

The Twelfth House

Saturn is said to find its joy in the twelfth house of the birth chart. In Latin, this house means Prison. A prison of isolation that can turn your life upside down. There is always something strange about this house, and just when we think we understand what it is, the meaning slips through our fingers.

The planet of the past, karma, and debt, Saturn burdens these natives with mental anguish and anxiety. It expresses itself in a dark theme. The only good thing about such a sign placement is the lesson of patience and perseverance learned by these natives.

Personality

Blessed with immense knowledge, understanding, and wisdom, Capricorn natives mature early in life. They speak highly of the challenges presented in front of them because that’s what changed them into a completely different person. Blame it on Saturn, the discipline loving, hardworking planet, blossoming amidst the adversities.

When in Love, Capricorns are loyal and respectful. They do everything they can to help their partners find success. For a Capricorn, jobs, and relationships require the same things. Hard work and passion. They are definitely not wrong about that!

Strengths

Intelligent. Detail-oriented. Capricorns will never settle for a NO. If they want something, they get it. No matter how hard they have to fight for it. Their hard work is what makes them inspiring leaders and motivational speakers.

Prodigious and confident, always willing to learn something new. This curiosity to gain information about anything and everything is what makes them a master of all trades. But that’s not all about these perfectionists. Although they are not often appreciated for this, they possess a great sense of humor.

Weaknesses

Typical Capricorn traits form their weaknesses in unfavorable circumstances. Though strong-willed and tenacious, if they aren’t able to meet their goals in time, they can become their harshest critics. That also stands true if they assign a task to someone else. Unable to understand the fact that everyone works differently, these natives become cold, distant, and arrogant if their standards of work aren’t met.

Judgmental and unforgiving, they don’t leave a very good first impression. Resourceful and money-minded, Capricorns’ extreme materialism and overambitious trait can lead to their downfall. When experiencing a tough phase in their professional life, these natives can feel insecure and isolate themselves from the world.
