Sun in Capricorn
Those with the Sun in Capricorn exude a sense of being in charge, and they usually are. They may be in pursuit of status and power, but they never compromise their integrity to get there. These are the masters of the physical realm, and widely admired for what they’re able to accomplish.
They are born with a sense of purpose, and many Capricorn children are mature beyond their years. As they get older, they seem to age in reverse, becoming childlike and retaining a youthful glow. A penchant for melancholy creates a unique filter for Capricorn humor that is known to veer toward the darkly absurd.
A fortress of defenses can keep the curious and insincere at bay in their lives. To the world at large, this can give the Capricorn a remote feeling that is intriguing. But those that pass the test of loyalty are allowed to see a more vulnerable side. At heart, they’re interested in enduring ties, and often look to family and longtime friends for emotional support.
The Sun in Capricorn has an intense drive for achievement that never lets up. They strive for a personal standard of excellence, even if the rest of the world settles for mediocrity. The ones that pursue the Arts have a disciplined approach that sets them apart from mere dreamers. If the Capricorn seems serious, perhaps it’s because they’ve got so much to do. They won’t linger too long in idleness or rest on their laurels when there are mountains to climb.
Capricorns fall into dark moods, at times, which can really linger. They’re ruled by Saturn and being serious or saturnian comes with the package. They live with an intense sense of mortality (Saturn rules time and aging), and this is a motivator and a bummer. It can be hard to rouse a Capricorn out of their funk - sometimes it just takes time.
In romance, the Capricorn would fare well as one half of a power couple. The ideal would be someone they can respect, but also allows them to take charge most of the time. Once happily settled, they’ll go about the business of building both an empire and a cozy home life.
The Light of Initiation
Love/Wisdom expresses itself through the creation of those mental structures needed to carry forth and distribute the Will of the Plan into the world of form. This is very much the result of the interplay between the Second Ray of the Sun and the First, Third and Seventh Ray lines of manifestation of Capricorn.
The Second Ray qualities of the Sun must express themselves through three quite different Rays (I-III-VII) of the sign Capricorn. An incarnation taken in this sign has a very profound struggle but an equally great reward. Capricorn has to be able to express Love/Wisdom through the intense need for the expression of Will and Power (Ray I). This requires the total acceptance of the biblical phrase, “Let Thy Will be done.”
Capricorn has to modify and direct his or her creative and active intelligence (Ray III), so that the mind is used for the goals of the Soul. Furthermore, Capricorn´s incredible urge for control, structure, and order (Ray VII) have to be transformed and totally redirected. Instead of being qualities which are used to manipulates the outer circumstances of life in order to fulfill the desires of the personality, these very same characteristics have to come under the directed will of the Soul. Once all of this is achieved, then the Soul level purpose becomes a reality.
