i am a Cancerian chick with Aquarius Rising and a philandering Capricorn ex. By “philandering” i mean “town bike.” There are few people i know who have now not slept with him and no i can’t move as we share our child together. My question is this – Philandering Ex is a Capricorn and i thought they were meant to be staunch and ambitious?
Philandering Ex changes his whole job and identity every six months, usually to get a root ( Australian Slang for sex) but sometimes as it’s a new career. He has no core identity other than getting laid. During our marriage he went from right wing rugby protestant to mall rat surfer dude to arty farty to nature loving tree hugging man.
Since our split he has been a triathlete, sculptor, zumba instructor and now he is a rockabillie. His wardrobe morphs to match that of his latest conquest. He also takes on the personality of who ever he is pursuing, it’s all about getting a root basically. He is really good at that aspect of things but his resume is, as you can imagine, haphazard. He seems to be showing an interest in the music of The Cure and wearing more black so I am wondering if a morph into being Goth or Emo is not next.
My question is is any of this characteristic of a Capricorn? Nothing i have read features any such traits?
Love, the Confused Cancerian Chick.
Dear Confused Cancerian Chick,
I share your bemusement! I must say, this makes me think of the God Jupiter – who in mythology used to swoop down to earth and change himself into whatever it took to get the object of his lust. A myrtle tree. A swan. Another maiden. Your Ex is an archetype! Or stereotype. He is certainly an anecdote. Some exes simply become the children’s father – others become colorful anecdotes. Once the sting of his predilections and infidelity is passed (and it does pass, as you know) you will be able to regale your friends at lunch with hilarious tales of his pursuits.
Now his astro is interesting. I could not resist looking at his chart (details not shared here) and the dude has nearly everything in his chart in Earth – untold Virgo and Capricorn. Then there is Saturn in Pisces, North Node in Gemini and Moon in Leo. He’s SO low in Air and Fire that i think he’s over playing his Moon in Leo. He needs to do some acting courses or direct musical theater or something. The conquests are most likely not so much about sex per se as they are about his ego gratification. It takes a village to satisfy this man and it’s a pity you have to live in this village for the time being.
Also, this actually is kind of Capricorn – not the slack and erratic attitude towards crafting a sustainable career but if seducing as many woman as possible is his m.o. and he’s worked out that sliding into whatever character they’re most looking for at the moment, well, he’s doing it competently, right?
What does everyone else think?
