Capricorn in Astrology: Meaning and Traits

Capricorn in Astrology: Meaning and Traits

In episode 382 astrologers Diana Rose Harper, Madeline DeCotes, and Chris Brennan discuss the meaning of the zodiac sign Capricorn in astrology, and explain the traits and characteristics associated with people who were born under this sign.

Capricorn is the tenth sign of the zodiac, and it is a feminine or nocturnal sign, cardinal, earthy, and ruled by the planet Saturn.

This is the tenth entry in our series of episodes where we do a detailed treatment of each of the signs of the zodiac, one per episode, in order to develop a more nuanced understanding of their core meaning and significations.

During the course of the episode we talk about different keywords and archetypes associated with Capricorn, and also look at the birth charts of celebrities who were born with different planets in that sign.

Diana and Madeline’s credentials for this episode are that they both have a number of prominent placements in the sign of Capricorn in their birth charts.

  • One step further, on the metaphor of Capricorn being the grandmother:

    Women’s ovaries develop while they’re still in their mother’s wombs. Which is to say, that as a woman, I was an egg (potential person) in my mother’s ovaries, while she was still be carried as a fetus in my grandmother’s womb. Real life nesting dolls!

    But Capricorn as Grandmother fits this beautifully too – any pregnant woman you see, who is also carrying a female fetus is potentially (present/in the flesh) three generations of her family, two within her.

    Talk about providing for your family!

    But also, on the fact that Capricorn is exalted in Libra (relationships) if she doesn’t tend to the relationship with her female child, she may be cut off from the legacy/familial relationships. So in order to watch her family grow, she needs to tend to herself (so she’s around) and her relationships, so she can enjoy them and be enriched by them.

    This whole episode was very insightful and helpful for me, in understanding Capricornians!

    Thank you!!
