In The Sandpit

Filed in SUN SIGNS

Capricorn ChildSo one’s first thought is that this child is Virgo.  But think again. This child is surely Capricorn.  As anyone with a Capricorn child can attest, they start achieving early; grokking the importance of grades, advantages of popularity and susceptibility of the teacher within about half an hour of starting school.

Also, the Virgo would not leave sand in that middle red bucket. But Capricorn thinks more of the over-all pattern and/or whether or not it is impressive enough to be seen from the school staffroom or an over-flying private jet. Taurus can also be orderly, ambitious and practical but would probably not want to risk getting sand in a lunch sandwich. Thoughts?

A wonderful friend has a capricorn sun and they are stylish, refined and interesting, but often complaining about the job, the people, the relationship – is that because they have high quality standards and they are let down? Where we do have fun together (and it’s LOL fun) is in conversation about morality, values and assumptions. I always find my friend to be enlightened, progressive and unorthodox, and never ever married to some dumb idea (imo) like ‘finding the ONE’. Hilarious and outrageously clever ideas under a blank exterior.

This is interesting – I’ve come to realise that I have high expectations, of others but primarily of myself, about alot of things, but in regard to what you said h-a-r-p, morals and values. I tend to expect the same level of behaviour from others that I demand of myself. Case in point – I split from the father of my child about April last year (a rather nasty break-up due to abuse issues mainly). A mutual female friend was supportive of my stance (via Facebook) and then didn’t hear from her for 6-7 months. Then she was on FB… Read more »

Maybe, but kids do things like that. I know it’s hard to find these days with small children plugged into structured school settings, or electronic games and media, but if they are allowed creative play, putting things in order is very common at the age of the child in the photo.

Adults are not the only ones who would benefit from going off grid!

Absolutely. I used to baby sit for a five year old boy who meticulously lined up his cars in the hallway and Heaven help his three year old sister if she messed them up.

I have a g/f who is Capricorn with Taurus moon and Virgo mars, and, to be honest, she takes so long to do anything that by the time this was done, it would have rained/seagull pooped in the sand etc. I think this child’s a military Aries 🙂

I am a Cap and I am more than organised in most places and rather messy in others. But, this is totally something I would and still do. All the items in my pantry are in groups according to food type and front facing. Then if new is bought, everything is rotated to put the oldest and need to be used first items up front. All the shampoos, conditioners and scrub in the shower are lined up by height and when I have more than 1 letter to mail, I arrange the envelopes according to length. And on and on!… Read more »

Loving reading about all your Cappy kids! I sometimes wonder if I was just an unbearable precocious know-it-all over achiever as a child, but I think that was probably better for the folks than a little tear-away.

My youngest nephew – a Gemini – does this sort of thing…he is autistic

Why would a Virgo ever do something like that? There is no functional purpose in the pattern. Virgos are about process – like where did the sand come from, what are its qualities, is it the right sand for the situation? But lining up the toys like that?! Its just not right for the job.

that’s a good point you know. Virgo needs an underlying driver for the organising yeah? what is the aim of this task? who or what does the organising need to serve? utility.

Yep, I agree. When I Virgo out it has to be for the sake of efficiency and it has to have a practical element to it —- what’s the purpose, how can we do it well, and timely, and how it is going to contribute to the betterment of that sandpit and the other kids who use it, for crying out loud!

I dont know about that shantidevi, i have 2 boys on the spectrum, and know a bunch of peeps with autism kids, none with this habbit.

OCD

shantidevi
shantidevi

Asperger’s is on the autism spectrum, it’s the high functioning end. Lining things up and liking things that move in straight lines, like trains, is a very common but not universal spectrum trait.

Like all similar diagnoses, OCD is almost always co-morbid with something else.

That pic plugs into my Capricorn Mercury – maybe something else is also at play but I’m naturally tuned into creating structure out of chaos, physically (I’m an architect) and mentally through digging down to the core of a conversation or philosophy… neatly laid out in as few bullet points as possible.

h-a-r-p

That makes total astro sense that Cap Merc is into architecture!! And few bullet points is so worth striving for – it is challenging to achieve because it demands that those bullet-points used are of highest quality (the best trumps quantity).

I would have done this as a child, in fact I am sure I did.

But my virgo venus and rising would have had the sand out of the red bucket or sand in all three. Maybe in one filled all the way up for a backup supply(is that the virgo or saturn talking?).

Oh and we know what the polls are saying, so what, viva la difference and all. The media is more than annoying in casting their analysis of loss and gain BEFORE the actual poll though. I do wonder if vascillating peeps just go with how they THINK the majority are going to vote. Like it’s a foregone conclusion. Such is life, not going to lose anymore sleep over this….

When I was a kid I used to do this with my Halloween/Easter candy. I sorted it by type, and then sub-sorted by color. So, all the red jellybeans in a column, then orange, etc., all the way through to purple. Then I’d start on M&M’s…

The older I got, the less I did things like this, not sure why. Maybe I just have too many other things that have to be taken care of?

Not much Cap in my chart except for my North Node,. and Lilith. Kataka Sun, Aqua Moon/Rising.

Also vote not virgo because 3rd truck is parked facing a different direction too!

I don’t know why people are thinking sand on sandwiches are about Toros being fat. I agree with the statement because the Toros I know aren’t fat but they like their food’s taste to be unadulterated and exact. Having sand in there would ruin it for them. Picnics are too unpredictable. YOu can have flying insects move in or wind upturning paper plates, or some other disaster. LOL! That’s Sagg territory.

My little Taurus used to do just this kind of patterning. She’d take all her crayons and about 3 packs of her playing cards and set up quite an impressive geometric design!

P.S. She didn’t mind the sand but didn’t like walking barefoot on grass.

I look at this and to me it’s not ordered right. I order everything by colour ( wardrobe, lists are written in different coloured pens, books on the shelf, nail varnish in the bathroom cabinet, rainbow order i like to call it) so all I see here is the disorder because all the blue things aren’t together!!! I even do this unconsciously, like when I opened my linen cupboard the other day and realised, without intending it, everything pink was on the same shelf. As a child I used to love it how new boxes of pencils came ordered through… Read more »

Personally, as a Mars in Cap 2nd house with Venus in Aqua 3rd (and being a Piscean, proabably) i play with a particular order until i get it for say, two weeks or longer if it’s a private work thing i’m doing. Then i like to play with the order, and create a completely new basis for it. This includes colour matching, time slicing, space blocking, ritual behaviour order, and number patterns. However, when you throw shapes into the mix, i cannot stand the square much, and work basically with two types of triangle. Circles are cool too if i… Read more »

Makes me wonder which sign is most likely to suffer from OCD–I’m not venturing any suggestions,(no way Jose!) it’s a sad and bizarre neurotic disorder. The picture reminds me more of that, but I agree with your post especially the bit about TAURUS being much too sensible to risk getting sand in their lunch. I’m pretty ordered, but it could be equally mild OCD as perhaps Venus in the 4th house. I dunno. Saturn conj Sun, in Aqua probably has something to do with it.

I color code my washing. Also the pegs – I have a few different ones, but each item on my line must have matching pegs (color and type). Also, its best not to kindly fold my washing for me, because I am only going to redo it all to my standards. Venus Cap … nothing else too OCD that lasts. I am mostly fire and air.

I doubt so, Virgo neighbour’s room has stuff all over her bed + tables. I think they’re more obsessed with schedules and getting things done rather than neatness/cleanliness. Schedules definitely. Their schedules are a mess with things to be done all the time.

I really like capricorns. They Show Up and don’t grizzle. They will do the fucking work. They will also argue with you (constructively) or provide helpful input if they disagree with the work / goals / methods / etc. They follow through. Their secret kookiness also helps them take on new ideas if these ideas will also be effective, useful, successful and not increase the fuqing-around-factor. They are quite matter-of-fact and don’t get all wierd about speaking up or dealing with authority or writing a project timeline. They can also drink a LOT.
