BASIC SOUL PURPOSES: A CAPRICORN incarnation is one of initiationthe gateway through which
the Accepted Disciple, having walked the Path of life through nine tests (or zodiac signs), is now ready to
culminate her journey and ascend to the Mountaintop. (Oken) Whereas Cancer is the gate in,
CAPRICORN is the gate out where freedom from the personality, through successfully passing
the initiatory tests, is granted. CAPRICORN IS THE PATHWY TO TRANSFIGURATION.
QUALITY TO OVERCOME: Personal Ambition.
LESSON TO LEARN: Detachment to the material forms of life, so that she is left free to be the cocreator of those forms.
MOTIVATED BY: Expediency.


COMPATIBLE ENERGIES: Cancer, Scorpio, & Pisces
INCOMPATIBLE ENERGIES: Those of fire & air elements often compatible Ascendant energies
will largely overcome incompatibility.
An intimate relationship with another CAPRICORN means inability to recharge each others
energy field. There is a tendency to blend and act as one element. Unless there are other strong
energizing elements present, there can be a slow starvation of the nervous system. Conflict need not be
Attraction to others attuned to an element one lacks usually does not form the basis for a
lasting relationship. One or both end up saying, We are too different.
Relationships can be either too intense or devitalizing according to the energy
combination of both persons. A strong reason for knowing the Soul Maps of those with whom we have
close personal relationships. We can work positively with what we know.
Sleeping together merges the energy fields and can dramatically affect each persons state
of health, for good or ill. If in an intimate relationship with a neutral or incompatible Sun Sign, sleeping
in separate beds/bedrooms can be very beneficial. (Stephen Arroyo, Astrology, Psychology, & the Four

EVOLUTIONARY SPIRAL: (According to Alan Oken, Soul-Centered Astrology ) as we grow

holistically, we spiral upward from Personality-centered >>> Awakening to Soul-Personality relationship
>>> Soul-Centered Individual.

Functioning totally on the Personality-Centered Level marks the end of the crystallization of the
personality, resulting in a total attachment to the physical plane. For this reason, CAPRICORN at
personality-centered level can contain very difficult lessons. The attachment to form can be so great
that CAPRICORN is totally earthbound in orientation. The physical environment in which CAPRICORN
is reared and the psychological patterns existing within the family-of-origin allow little freedom for
individual choice. There is little or no awareness of a spirit living within the forms of life. CAPRICORN,
at this level, can be heard saying, What you see is what you get. SATURN, ruler of CAPRICORN, is

very restrictive at this level, resulting in a disposition characterized by worry and melancholy. Fear of
lack, of not getting what she wants, or of losing what she has are paramount in the mind of the
personality-centered CAPRICORN. Life seems to be one constant uphill battle. CAPRICORN is
dragging behind her all the excess baggage from many previous lifetimes. This baggage is glued in
place by untransmuted emotional habit patterns centered largely in fear. Because CAPRICORN can
never be complacent, ambition drives her forward. When ambition expresses through the personalitycentered CAPRICORN, her self-seeking ways lead to further karmic baggage until she is ready to
collapse under the load. It is at this point of collapse that a ray of light is able to penetrate the hard crust
of earthbound CAPRICORN. The birthing of the Christ awakens the unconscious heart.

Awakening to the Soul-Personality Relationship CAPRICORN begins to awaken to the hidden

spiritual value within the forms of life. CAPRICORN begins to transform her desire for worldly status and
recognition into the aspiration to take on responsibilities that will be of benefit to others. The urge to
create form out of purpose is paramount. CAPRICORN now has far-reaching goals toward which she
works with great determination and will for success. She is learning to act ambitiously, while not being
attached to the outcome of her actions. CAPRICORN is planting the seeds of self-sacrifice in
preparation for embarking on the Path of living and working in the NOW moment. Money and material
possessions are increasingly viewed as representatives of energy and power.

Soul-Centered Individual at this level, the Unicorn emergesalways sensitive to the Plan and
the Will aspect of Divinity. CAPRICORN is now able to synthesize the three RAYs on which she is
functioning, allowing for a tremendous outpouring of creativity. CAPRICORN is magnetic and focused
through her highly evolved 3rd RAYs active intelligence. She is, thereby, able to bring about the
necessary organization and order required to bring forth her created forms. This combination of the 1st,
3rd, and 7th RAY influences grants CAPRICORN the capacity to tear down the old and create the new
forms that allow for the externalization of the Divine Plan. CAPRICORN may appear distant, aloof, and
unrelenting in her need to bring about change and transformation. The Unicorn is one-pointed. That
point is directed to the heart of humanity, so that it may open ever wider and allow the light of the
Christed Self to radiate forth. CAPRICORN, as the Unicorn, creates the physical plane forms through
which this Light may manifest as the Wayshower for humanity. CAPRICORN is now a Server to the
Earth and Creator of resources. The soul-centered CAPRICORN Initiate may remain in the
consciousness of Divine Love. Yet the call to service is so strong that she turns her back on a period of
heavenly rest and returns into incarnation to continue serving humanity.

This I USE, THEREFORE I AM sign is ambitious, practical, responsible, efficient, and patient.
She is happiest in work that calls for organization, integrity, and perseverance. CAPRICORN builds
walls of reserve around her innermost being and appears to be a loner. She is, in fact, very sensitive.
She isolates herself out of fear of being hurt; she does not really enjoy being alone. Her friends receive
her unswerving loyalty. CAPRICORN likes to view all sides of an issue, to plan in advance, and to learn
where she went wrong when she makes the rare mistake. CAPRICORN enjoys the limelight and is
attracted to politics and acting. She is hardworking and dependable, particularly in a crisis. Hard wok
invigorates CAPRICORN. She intuitively knows that work is therapeutic. With Saturn as ruler of both
personality and soul-centered CAPRICORN, there is strong self-discipline. CAPRICORN seldom
wastes time talking; she speaks when she has something to say, often with a dry sense of humor.
CAPRICORN is stoic; if one path is blocked, she will try another. CAPRICORN is thoughtful,
warmhearted, tactful, compassionate, and self-contained. CAPRICORN suffers because she
incarnated to climb the mountaintop of soul growth. Once she recognizes this, CAPRICORN can
consciously orient herself toward soul growth and eliminate the need to suffer. In love, she is
romantic and emotional, though she may have difficulty expressing those emotions. CAPRICORN is
family oriented and enjoys her children.

NEGATIVE CHARACTERISTICS: (Remember that as you focus on developing your positive

characteristics, the negative ones tend to disappear. Those who express in negative ways are
frustrated, consciously or unconsciously, because they are not being who they truly are.)
CAPRICORN can be intolerant, suspicious, stubborn, and have a tendency toward retaliation.
CAPRICORN can be melancholy and depressed with a tendency to worry. An inferior complex can be
at the root of CAPRICORNs need for recognition and positive reinforcement. Seeing tangible results of
the work CAPRICORN has done also helps in overcoming the inferior complex. CAPRICORN often
fears being without the necessities of life. CAPRICORN needs to learn to believe in herself and to
consciously develop optimism. Rigidity of thinking and behaving can result in arthritis. False pride and
a tendency to dominate can be present. The CAPRICORN MALE clings to his mother, even after
marriage, which often causes friction in the marriage. As long as his mother lives, she is the center of
his life. If Saturn is afflicted with challenging aspects, CAPRICORN may be kinder to those in the
external world than to the family she helped to create within marriage. CAPRICORN can be a strong
disciplinarian, tending to say, Do it because I say so. CAPRICORN has difficulty understanding the
feelings of others. CAPRICORN may be plagued with conflict over her duty to father. This feeling of
obligation to father can mean that CAPRICORN will not come into her own until the father is deceased.
The CAPRICORN FEMALE may hunger for an emotional relationship with her father that he is unable to
offer. The CAPRICORN FEMALE will often select a marriage partner on the basis of fathers approval.
CAPRICORN can feel duty-bound to parents, to the family business, and to collective society. Fathers
approval, as well as the collectives approval, is important for CAPRICORNto the point of allowing self
to be imprisoned by this need for approval. CAPRICORN will even allow herself to be the familys
scapegoat. CAPRICORN will often use the words debt repayment when describing her childhood and
family dynamics. At some point, CAPRICORN will break out of prison and follow her instincts. This is
usually the point at which CAPRICORN comes into her own. CAPRICORN CHILDREN need to be
encouraged to be playful, to relax, and to be creative. It is especially important to expose CAPRICORN
CHILDREN to the arts; otherwise, their innate practicality can lead them into dry areas of work that do
not allow for the extreme creativity lying dormant within them.

A CAPRICORN INCARNATION involves the search for dharma, or a mission in life. Following the
initiatory process of CAPRICORN, she is ready to serve humanityshe has earned her place among
the World Servers. The spiritual work accomplished through CAPRICORN must crystallize and be
grounded on the Earth. It involves the correct harnessing of Earths resources.

Be sure to check your chart to see what your Ascendant is.

The zodiac energy on the Ascendant is the energy that the public beholds. We also look at the
world through our Ascendant. CAPRICORN ASCENDANT, on the mundane level, views a world in
which to succeed and receive recognition.
In soul-centered astrology, the Ascendant is indicative of the souls purpose in physical
CAPRICORN ASCENDANT indicates the soul is now ready to undergo the difficult tests
involved in the Initiatory process. On whatever level these tests are experienced, the goal is to
awaken the individual to a higher level of spiritual awareness. CAPRICORN ASCENDANT gives a
strong desire to succeed in the material world. If this success is sought for individual personal gain and
recognition, the tests are likely to involve karmic blows pertaining to limitations that knock
CAPRICORN ASCENDANT into a consciousness of her own mortality and the way things are. Loss of
persons, things, position may occur. On the other hand, CAPRICORN ASCENDANTs egocentric
ambitions may result in being stuck in the physical plane mentality and lifestyle.
Another test may be CAPRICORN ASCENDANTs need to move out from under the fathers

dominionphysically and emotionally. CAPRICORN ASCENDANT will often deny her own dreams out
of fear of disappointing father. Karmic issues with the father are usually present. The FEMALE
CAPRICORN ASCENDANT may have to deal with these issues before she feels free to marry the man
of her choice (and not her fathers choice for her). Both male and female CAPRICORN ASCENDANTs
are ambitious. If the female is not successful on her own, she may tend to push her husband to be more
successful. This can create real problems within the marriage because often CAPRICORN
ASCENDANT will marry a gentle, kind, spiritual type man who is too sensitive to succeed (according to
her expectations) in the competitive workplace.
A major lesson for CAPRICORN SUN/ASCENDANT is that of unselfish love. Often
CAPRICORN ASCENDANT is subconsciously seeking the ideal mother in his/her marriage partner.
Getting in touch with her Venus is an important task for CAPRICORN SUN/ASCENDANT. Beauty, love,
art, nature, spontaneous funall are Venusian qualities that seldom come easily to CAPRICORN.
Instead, she will seek to experience life through the familys daily routine.
CAPRICORN ASCENDANT reveals that the soul is to be activated through the 1st, 3 rd, & 7th
RAYs. She is to carry out her mission (or dharma) as a leader who exhibits the Will, Intelligence, and
Power to assist in bringing forth better conditions for her entire Earth family.

THE HOUSE IN WHICH SATURN IS LOCATED will indicate the area of life experiences in which
the lessons of 1st, 3rd, & 7th RAYs will tend to manifest. 1 st & 3rd RAY lessons will include leading
others in a compassionate rather than manipulative manner, developing tolerance and empathy for
others, and learning to take constructive criticism without reacting in anger. 7th RAY lessons include a
greater realization of World Unity and releasing too rigid adherence to traditional rules and structures.
SATURN CHANNELS THE 3RD RAY, thereby increasing the powerful influence of that RAY in
CAPRICORNs life expression.

Be sure to check your chart to see where your MOON is located.

The MOON reveals the personality as it is displayed in our reactions to the events within our daily
lives. It also reveals much that is hidden within our subconscious minds.
On the soul-centered level, the MOON reveals habit patterns that must be overcome or
transformed in order to advance in spiritual maturity. This struggle to overcome the negative tendencies
revealed by the MOON is the cross we bear (Alan Oken). The MOON reminds us of the negative
habit patterns formed in prior incarnations that created the karma we brought into this incarnation.
The MOON IN CAPRICORN indicates that soul growth will occur as the individual learns to
accept and appreciate the self-discipline required by the personality and soul level planetary ruler of
CAPRICORN, SATURN. The more self-discipline we exert, the easier it becomes. SATURN acts as the
supervisor (the Dweller on the Threshold) standing at the doorway of the Rainbow Bridge to higher
consciousness. It is through developing the art of self-discipline that we are enabled to successfully
pass CAPRICORNs Initiatory tests and walk across that bridge as an INITIATE now ready for World
MOON IN CAPRICORN is a reminder that the initiatory tests were not successfully
completed in prior lifetimes. Instead, MOON IN CAPRICORN preferred to follow her own ambitions,
to seek positions of power for her own personal reasons. MOON IN CAPRICORN has manipulated
others in her efforts to win recognition, she has been intolerant of others feelings, and she has ignored
the ideas of others. Though MOON IN CAPRICORN appears serene and charming on the outside, she
is often suffering internally from strong feelings of fear, frustration, and inadequacy. MOON IN
CAPRICORN is likely to engage in a variety of power struggles because, on a subconscious level, she

feels more secure while holding the authority position. MOON IN CAPRICRON continues to cling to
karmic patterns of allowing strong parental influence. The playfulness aspect that can be so healing
to the serious CAPRICORN energy must be consciously developed and integrated into her
lifestyle. The mythic character of Pan relates to the playful side of CAPRICORN (Kathleen Burt).
CAPRICORN MOON holds the potential for outstanding leadership. Operating on the soulcentered level, MOON IN CAPRICORN earns the respect of others; it is the influence of the Law Giver
who creates policies for the good of the organization.




The CAPRICORN/CANCER POLARITIES work together to bring about a positive regulation of
energy flow within the physical body.
Achieving a balance between the qualities of CAPRICORN and CANCER, thereby transforming
negative habit patterns, will assist in maintaining good health. For examples, achieving a balance
CAPRICORNs discipline and CANCERs nurturance.
CAPRICORNs search for personal satisfaction and CANCERs ease in satisfying
CAPRICORNs career interests/responsibilities and CANCERs orientation toward
CAPRICORNs exterior reserve and CANCERs affectionate nature.

Failure to recharge ones Sun Sign energy results in depletion, irritability, and increased
vulnerability to physical and emotional dis-eases. The element of ones Sun Sign is the fuel needed to
feel alive. It is the source of vitality and power, the resource for coping with stress and challenges.

CAPRICORN recharges by: 1) Regular contact with other earthy persons, especially Taurus &
Virgo. 2) Earth is the vital energy of CAPRICORN, therefore, being close to nature, working in the dirt,
and making prolonged contact with trees (hugging a tree, sitting with your back leaning against a tree) is
an all important source of revitalization. 3) Earth plane duties and obligations that offer challenges in
coping with the material world. CAPRICORN needs to see the physical results of her efforts. 4)
Conscious attunement to the Pan (playful) side of her nature. CAPRICORN often has to be forced
by lifes events to allow herself to commune with nature in playful, relaxing ways. Once this happens,
she will end up saying, That was the best thing that ever happened to me. Butthe goal is to intend
this play, not wait until it is forced upon CAPRICORN.

CAPRICORN tends to disdain conflicts, but will express hostility as a defense against an attack.
CAPRICORN is deeply sensitive (a fact she hides from others). If hurt during a conflict, it can take
CAPRICORN a long time to heal. As a result, CAPRICORN may seek retribution for the pain. Since
CAPRICORN resists looking inward, her communication is not likely to be open and honest during a
conflict. Rigidity in thinking can be a problem.

CAPRICORNAs strong and long-lasting attachment to her family-of-origin can be a source of

conflict, especially within the marriage relationship.
