Turning Capricorn

Filed in CAPRICORN

Salvador Dali White Bird and Mountain goat

I don’t have a single planet in the sign of the Sea-Goat but I’m turning Capricorn.

I so completely blame the Saturn-Pluto Square for this.

I’m getting Capricorn Consciousness.  At least, I think that’s what it is.  Could any actual real-life Capricorns please enlighten me.

I am walking home and realize that i need to buy olive oil spread (like butter) but that i’ll have to either get $ out at a non-my-bank atm & thus pay a fee or purchase enough stuff to make the shop card limit. Petty stuff. Usually, i would be like so t.f what. But my Capricorn Consciousness said “you know what? You don’t even NEED revolting hydrogenated crap in your arteries. Live clean. You are not going to give that bank a cent that you don’t have to and why go and buy extra stuff you don’t actually need? Enjoy the thrill of not doing it…”

Guys, this is how Capricorns get +stay thin and rich. Stinge on the small stuff so they can slurge on the big items. The only thing I have ever known Capricorns not mind paying for is good advice (like their lawyer).

But for me it’s uncharacteristic. So if you haven’t been paying attention up the back there, Saturn in Libra squared (a challenge) Pluto in Capricorn last November and just the other day.  Saturn is now whizzing backward to oppose Uranus again (that all began last Feb) and then forward again to square Pluto for the third and final time in August 2010.

So a lot of us are doing Saturn Girl/Capricorn Consciousness and it’s feelling okay. It’s sort of like we are settling into Pluto in Capricorn. I mean, it’s there until 2024.  And you know Saturn RULES Capricorn so when Saturn aspects Pluto in the sign that it rules, you betcha there are tangible changes and some hardcore pragmatism.

Even my Saggo Neighbour Dude, renowned for his feck-free approach to life, has embarked upon a cleaning, gardening (growing salad vegetables to provide his band with cheap nutrition so they can work extra-long hours) and 60hour a week funds-sourcing ventures.

And here I am, a Capricorn, and I can’t save a penny! I’m forever looking for stuff I just have to have or else and no one can slide through an inheritance like me! I just want it all!! If my husband didn’t manage our money, we’d have nothing, but I’d have it all materially anyway and have to put on yard sales eventually. So go figure…….I have an ascendent Aries and a moon in Pisces and grew up dirt poor as a child. Maybe that’s what has led me off the true Capricorn climb the mountain to success woman.

Aries energy can be impulsive sometimes (see my blurb on gambling on La Luna endarkened Cappy Moon thread). I have Aries Sun and Merc….My Cappy Moon however usually pulls me back from utter destruction.

Subconscious things that need to be looked at go hand and hand with these types of things. Since you grew up poor as a child, perhaps you are still working on those issues even though you have money now.

Just a thought doll. Right there with you.

absolutely hate bank fees of any sort … and i’m a pure butter and/or virgin olive oil girl so i wouldnt bother with the spread.

As a cap i reckon life is looking pretty damn fine right at this moment… feel like i am BACK (has been a bit tricky these past few weeks) … good food, lots of exercise, mind is pretty sharp too.

however… when things are tricky – i think the old leo moon takes over and then goodbye budget and hello good wine and food!

If i could, i would, but can’t peddle in traffic. Biking would have to be between
9pm-5am, but just love bikes but sans dorky helmet & use a cap or scarf for
pretends.
Blue Libra, no more wheels for you, shank’s pony from now on 🙂

SweetPea, did you say CHOCOLATE! I’m down to 3 large blocks a week from 5 & only
eat it in bed.
Absolutley know it’s a subsitute for sex, a girl’s gotta get her endorphin buzz.
It’s addictive ingrediant’s called phenylenline? phenylaniline?

Capricornian Quality over Quantity is a great attitude, along with VALUE
for money spent on anything.
Heard a male Cap once say ‘i’ll give you anything but my money’…lol.

cap ascendant. I have bursts of being very cappy and then dip back into my piscean sagg moon ways. I did think, a little while ago while jogging on my treadmill, “isnt it awesome that i have a treadmill with an incline so i dont have to waste any time going DOWN the hills”! felt very awesome and cappy in that moment.

I would have purchased a couple of tubs of spread to make the card limit and so I didn’t run out in future – it’s not like the stuff goes off in a hurry. Actually, I thought at first that you were out of olive oil and were going without that – oh, the horror!

Mars in Capricorn here and feeling v. sensible and grown-up about health issues and facing things I’ve been avoiding for years. What else is Capricorn in a chart for if not to give one a good kick up the arse now and then?

Total change in money focus. Fastidious percentage rule applied to banking and looking at EVERY expenditure and its justification. Must remember to let this earth vibe influence my Taurus Merc and Ven more often. Too much air otherwise.

Does this mean that my Cappy daughter will become more empowered than what she already is?? I’m donating my written off car to my brigade for road crash rescue practice. I am already enjoying the lack of petrol spending, the fact that my waist is slimming with all the walking and that I’m going nowhere near the shops! But what do Cappy’s do when they are demoted/ chastised and put on ‘enforced leave’ / isolation? Bicycle’s scare me. I tried a motorised one out last weekend and stacked it, scraped / bruised my leg. Shall stick to walking and buses.

lol….Actually, I’m more of a savory person and choc not my weakness but well, what’s a girl to do sometimes? I was in this shop that had all these gourmet treats and one was actually some Aussie barbque sauce…Lemon/Lime/Chile…Picked up a couple of bottles and used that on the chicken.

Had ya’ll in mind of course… Sure wish you could have made it to my barbie….~sniff~

I’m the same, more savoury than sweet-tooth but considering I’ve given up most other vices like smoking and drinking … i need something as a treat!

Aha. January has been very frugal, sensible and shows no signs of abating for this overindulgent Taurean. Lovely, lovely capricorn. I’m even selling my car because I just don’t need it anymore – and buying a bicycle instead.

Hello Gem!!!
*Waves happily*

I have not sold my car, but i have got a bike that I am riding to work everyday… so I am feeling pretty damn smug about the getting fit and saving money on both petrol and going to the gym. I have not bought lunch in a few weeks. I am trying to be all frugal, fit and healthy.
That’s Caps, right…. right?

Nah 😆 Caps use BUTTER (sparingly) because it has no additives but salt and we all need a little salt and it tastes so much better.

Yes, Cappy Moon here and buy real butter always. KerryGold, organic and imported from Ireland. What’s a few extra bucks when my arteries are involved? Little British lady in the grocery store the other day. She was looking for the Philadelphia cream cheese. I thought that amusing as don’t believe it’s made in Philly and told her she probably wouldn’t find a difference between brands overall. She looked on the expiration date of an item in her hand. She said “oh dear, guess that expired then”. I told her we have the date backward from her and that it actually… Read more »

cap nana passed away over xmas and i can feel her no-nonsense thrifty ways creeping into my own M.O.

i’m glad it’s tempered by the fact that caps often do have some kind of a social conscience.

i’d hate to be thrifty and upwardly mobile without also being compassionate for others less fortunate.

Congratulations darl, and welcome to the club. I walked a whole extra three blocks out of my way to use the appropriate ATM this morning and my thighs already feel more rippled from it. As well as saving money by re-evaluating your impulse-spends, here’s some other things you can expect to come into your life now that you are a Capricorn. – A lower phone bill – you will stop making so many ‘catch-up’ calls because instead you will be setting a mental calendar date before which wayward love interests / friends / family need to call / text /… Read more »

Oooooooohhh, Lexicon, this explains so much regarding my new, decidedly non-Libran approach to writing people off for poor behaviour. It’s making sense now. And I’m quite enjoying it, too. So at least that’s ONE part of the Cappie thing I’m down with!

And Lex, lets not forget the most awesome thing about being a Capricorn:

Mystic, now that you’re a Cap you’ll never be found wanting of
Before you even realise your fridge and washer are about to blow you will have inadvertantly befriended and helped someone who turns out to be a white-goods repairman.

Everything, and everyone you need to succeed will appear as if from nowhere! USE THEM!

Hey Lex, I got the “people are afraid of you sometimes” from a tarot card reading last Friday 😎 (Cap Moonie) Lets see, thin and rich….Hmmm.. Today, after an hour hike @ dawn, did the treadmill and eliptical at the gym and then exercised in the pool….Then five hours massage Even though STARVED after work, could not justify a quickie pick up of crap as thought process was that I’d just spent a fortune on groceries over the weekend. So, I opted for a string cheese stick. Satisfying and to the point. Cappy energy isn’t happy if the ends don’t… Read more »

So, the events of today have made me think I should add an addendum, chapter two of “my life in capricorn” if you will…

*you develop an infinite command of sarcasm

*you become ahead of the fashion trends, as you recycle your fave clothes from a decade ago, on the very verge of them becoming retro-on-trend

* AND you are totally calm in a crisis. icy cold, perhaps, but calm, so very calm…

I am really struggling with this energy. I have no planets in any earth signs in my chart, and I’m predominantly air. This earthiness just feels like heaviness and drudgery to me. I can see its uses at some levels – helping me to sit down and write my thesis, rather than skip off to yet another social function, for example – but at the same time I resent it. Massively.

Good luck with the thesis writing LAR.

Oh yeah…as Leo with Cap rising & Saturn in the 5t, I’ve been doing this spin on myself 4EVER…only now, with Pluto conjunct my rising, I’m finally down with it & canubelieve actually getting off on the pragmatism. Hilarious.
