When Capricorn instead of looking for proof of their importance from the outside world acquire Inner Power, they begin to use their remarkable abilities to start doing really important things, those that will give them the feeling of inner accomplishment and satisfaction. Capricorn will understand that the main thing is to respect oneself, give value to one’s own opinion and perception of what is really important. As a result they begin to live as their Higher Self (or Spirit) have intended. If that happens, a Capricorn not only begins to respect oneself but also begins to inspire other people, and teaches them how to live in cooperation with true self through their own example.
Capricorn discovers true meaning of self-control when their main goals are connected not with the outside world, but with the inner world. In other words, Capricorn has to realize that the main thing is to learn how to control perception of the mind. They have to stop allowing external conditions dictate what they should do, think or feel. Capricorn have to make their own choices – without being depended on what is happening around them. Serenity is self sacrifice, ability to control and direct oneself as well as accumulate energy.
When Capricorn embraces their own tenacity to get rid of negative emotions and start treating everything with kindness and in the positive light, their inner wisdom and broad personality help them to obtain results in anything they do. That is when Capricorn will be able to have remarkable influence on the lives of other people including their own.
If Capricorn does not try to understand what is really important to them, then they begin to define their success the way other people see them. Capricorn begin to think that they can be an important person only if outside world sees them that way and it makes Capricorn fight as hard as possible to win affection and respect from other people. This desire is the biggest Capricorn’s problem and the main karmic teacher.
Instead of building their own life in accordance with their wishes, Capricorn spends precious time (sometimes even lifetime) to meet expectations, receive approval and acknowledgement from others – when in reality they should accept, value and recognize themselves. Capricorn can be doing the “right thing”, talk to the “right people” for the sake of success and recognition, but as a result get nothing but disillusion.
Sooner or later most Capricorns, who believe that outside recognition is the only thing that can be an evidence of their importance, discover that this kind of recognition is fake and does not bring desired pleasure, since it forces them to live up to the standards and expectations of other people.
This disillusion can bring Capricorn to realization of their higher purpose. Instead of looking for proof and recognition in the outside world they should find this proof inside by asking themselves – what is important for me and showing self-control by doing everything possible to realize their own plans – that would be the time when Capricorn starts receiving true pleasure and satisfaction from living.
To learn how to accept themselves for what they are is the main secret of happiness and success for any Capricorn. When Capricorn have respect and value for themselves, they most likely will not “force” recognition from other people. When they know that they are doing something important, they invest all their energy into what they believe to be important. Otherwise they will constantly be lacking energy since they will often try to live up to overwhelmingly high standards of other people. Capricorn will be able to live their life in true happiness if they live the way they like to live.
Saturn is a planet which makes people go through the most difficult and harsh challenges and at the same time gives them enough energy to overcome those challenges. That is what Capricorn is all about: they often encounter problems and overcome them due to their patience. When they know that they have to wait – life leads them towards the destiny and they fulfill their karmic goals. Capricorn can become successful not only due to their own patience but also if they have clear mind, self-control, wisdom, endurance and ability to overcome obstacles.
Saturn – is the planet of wisdom and moderation that is why Capricorn should have both such qualities. People may see Capricorn as “old and wise” and it is possible that they are an “experienced soul”. It is very interesting that the younger Capricorn are, the older they feel. It is possible that the reason behind it is a big feeling of responsibility that Capricorn feels from a very young age. The responsibility can be so big that they start seeing life as being too “difficult” – sometimes this feeling becomes a part of their character. They feel that they have to carry some kind of a load and that is why they have to always be serious. Some Capricorns are not very emotional from Nature, others think that they have to be persistent to show off their weight of responsibility.
If Capricorn takes life too seriously it becomes a burden for them. They isolate themselves and treat life as a hard mission – as something that should be endured and not something that should be enjoyed. You can always identify this kind of Capricorn, they constantly sigh and it seems that they are saying: “I am so tired”. And it is true – they constantly have to carry this load.
Capricorn who falls into the dark side of the Saturn becomes a pessimist who is an anxious and unpleasant person. They see only imperfections. While they do not consider themselves as a pessimist – Capricorn believes that they are mere realists. Capricorn can consider themselves to be a realist, if they view problem solving as a creative process.
One of the Karmic goals of a Capricorn is to overcome the habit of worrying about nothing. The cause of worries could be anything or anyone. Pessimism and anxiety tell Capricorn that they have lost faith in Universe being perfectly organized, that they consider themselves responsible for everything that happens in the Universe (this is a common form of arrogance for a Capricorn). Capricorn have to renounce their own conviction that someone has to control what is happening – then they will be able to spiritually evolve and improve themselves. Life will teach this lesson to Capricorn again and again. Some of them realize in the early age the fact that there is a perfect order in the Universe. This order will always exist regardless of our will or consent to sustain this order – realization of this fact can be quite beneficial for Capricorn.
Capricorn has to commit to finding joy in everything they do. Then everything they do will be interesting for them and then they will be able to show their sense of humor and make whatever they do interesting for other people.
It is quite interesting, that the older Capricorn gets the younger they feel. It could be happening because with time they stop feeling a constricting burden of responsibility (especially for others). Gradually they come to the conclusion that they can really accomplish anything they get their mind into – that is when their responsibilities no longer seem so burdensome. This gives encouragement to a Capricorn. When Capricorn reaches middle age they are happier, more joyful and carefree than in their young age. And by the time they reach old age they can become light-hearted and frivolous person!
Saturn not only gives rare feeling of ambition to Capricorn but also creates challenges on the way to realize those ambitions. Many Capricorns don’t realize why life demands more from them than from other people. It seems to them that others are given what Capricorn doesn’t have, that it is easier for others to reach success. They begin feeling jealous towards success of others and think that a Capricorn had a bad draw.
In a sense a Capricorn has to go through bigger challenges than other people. The main lesson that they should learn is how to overcome those challenges and through the experience reach mastery in a chosen field. It makes challenges and obstacles an important part of Capricorns life lesson. However, very often they treat themselves and results of work with too much criticism – and by doing that they make their own life much harder. They expect too much from themselves, they fail to comply with the demands and as a result feel devastated. Of course, sometimes Capricorn feels that others have an easier life – since other people treat life much easier and don’t pressure themselves too much if something does not work out. In this sense, life of others is easier. However, life will surely indulge Capricorn with success if they set a goal to evolve spiritually. When Capricorn begins to challenge their own fears and worries, they reject egoistic desires – a desire to make the world do things the way they want to.
