The Sun in a birth chart represents our ego, presence, and identity. It also provides direction to where we head in life and the general strengths/weaknesses that influence our journey’s. Our Sun sign is our inner motivation. It shines a light on how we view life and our expectations from it. Likewise, it gives us a sense of direction and soul path.
Capricorn season starts on December 22 and lasts until January 20.
When the Sun transits Capricorn, you may move in slow, steady, and calculated ways. Capricorn season calls you to prove to people that you are responsible and determined and that they can rely on you during times of crisis. Capricorn season is consistent and puts your eye on achieving your goals by making sure you have the right plans and foundations to carry you to the top. The amount of work required to get things done is less likely to intimate or bore you during this season.
People with Capricorn Suns can come across as serious, practical, straightforward, and direct. The stony expression that they can switch on and off masks the warmth that they exude on the inside. Guarding their emotions is done as a way of protecting themselves from getting hurt or let down. They also try to focus their time and energy on things they deem worthy of attention. They’re willing to do whatever it takes to reach the heights that they were destined to, and they see their potential as their greatest competitor.
During Capricorn season you’re less likely to beat around the bush, which causes you to become more assertive with your words and intentions. You typically adopt a ‘don’t waste my time, and I won’t waste yours‘ philosophy that allows you to face your problems head-on, openly and honestly. You’re less likely to fake your emotions to make others comfortable; the look of disapproval or dissatisfaction on your face will be harder to disguise in social situations. Capricorn season brings resilient energy that teaches you to rise from the pain and suffering you have faced and use those memories as fuel to conquer the next quest, rather than letting the past hold you back.
Capricorn Suns are persistent and natural leaders. Nevertheless, they don’t like to feel powerless against other authoritative figures. They’re more likely to follow the rules or find a loophole to create their own rather than rebelling. They are, after all, the yin expression of Saturn: the planet of time, karma, structure, and power. To a Capricorn Sun, money, status, and recognition are symbols of power. While they do have a refined taste, they are more concerned with the feeling of respect, independence, and strength that comes with positions of authority and power in the world we live in.
During Capricorn season you may find that you are harder on other people and hold incredibly high standards that reflect the standards you hold yourself to. You might believe that you know what’s best for other people because you present yourself to be in control of everything unfolding in your own life (even if behind the scenes, you aren’t). Nevertheless, your judgment toward others may be the shadow expression of your willingness to see other people do their best and fulfill their potential.
