Capricorn Ascendant is learning how to be more ambitious, strategic and practical. Capricorn gains strength by focusing on goals, plans and accomplishments. Capricorn is a Cardinal Earth sign and is the symbol of accomplishments, prestige, honor and public success in the material world.
Capricorn embodies the “measure twice, cut once” mentality. Ruled by Saturn and the Tenth House of Career, Capricorn has an excellent sense of social responsibility and leaving a positive legacy behind.
Capricorn Ascendant can be overly concerned with social and cultural manners. This heightened concern can appear controlling to others but Capricorn is just trying to do her best and meet others’ expectations. Watch out for a persistence at achieving goals that can exhaust team members or those close.
Life is a little tough because she can put herself under enormous pressure to perform, feeling responsible for others’ success, too. Capricorn-style aloofness may also function as a way to insulate from close contact with others. The driving force behind so much ambition may be hidden feelings of insecurity or low self- esteem.
Capricorn Ascendant benefits from seeking to share her gifts with the world. When she is at her best, her goal is to improve the welfare of others, as well as your own. Her redemption comes from allowing the love she feels inside to express itself in visible acts of kindness.
