You are made of strong substances; the Earth, Saturn and Cardinal energy. Cardinal is an energy that self-activates, it has energy that wants to be utilised and to get things happening. In Earth, it suggests that you can make things happen out in the world and with your ruler being Saturn, this energy points to self-mastery over your lifetime, utilising Saturn’s traits of structure, discipline, authority. That self-mastery is learnt through your roles out in the world, your responsibilities and duties.
As the Mountain Goat you have come here to ascend to new heights. It is important for your sign to have direction, be they yearly goals or the vision of the mountain(s) that you wish to climb and claim. It is worth assessing your visions and defining what success looks and feels like for you as an individual. It is important that what you are working towards feels true to you as this will provide far more stamina than trying to master another person’s idea of success.
Your ruler, Saturn, represents authority. As children, our authority is naturally outsourced to our care givers and teachers and it is as adults (especially through the initiation of our Saturn Return) that we must re-assess our relationship to authority and pull it back into ourselves, embodying ourselves. Comb through your desires and ambitions and ways of doing and being and observe if they are natural to you or conditioned. This process and application aligns you even more with your own integrity. And as Patti Smith said (a fellow Capricorn), ‘be concerned with doing good work and make the right choices and protect your work. And if you build a good name, eventually, that name will be its own currency.’
Maturity is a trait often applied to your sign and part of this is due to your ruler being the lord of time, meaning that, for you, you have a natural eye on the long game, you can see the Mountains that may take years to climb, that other people cannot see, and this is part of your gold. You have come here to contribute to the world, part of you is geared to go beyond the personal and into your roles in society. This is why Capricorns can seem to skip childhood and go straight into adult responsibility. Your roles are your mountains. They tether you to life and bring a sense of purpose and direction. Your roles bring you your flow.
Cancer, your opposing sign, is a nourishing and revitalising bath for your archetype. While Capricorn is your concrete roles and ambitions out in the world, Cancer energy represents your inner world, your inner sanctuary that you can retreat into and be rejuvenated by. It is self-love and nurturance; it is the processes that fill up your cup so that when the day is new you can go out into the world and be fuelled for your mission, balanced with your personal world.
