It is an astrological fact that you ideally look like your ascendant. A.k.a. your rising sign. If you know your time of birth, this is very easy to establish via Astrodienst.
So if you are – say – a stealth Scorpio with Leo Rising, it’s auspicious to LOOK Leo. Even if your Scorpionic psyche shrivels at the mere thought of big hair, bling and a 20 metre radius ostentatious entitlement scent from a designer/model/celebrity you personally feel a psychological affinity with.
If you want bones and structure, you’ve come to the right place. What else would one expect from Capricorn Rising, ruled by Saturn, the planet of steel, time, structure, tooth, bone and what endures. Call it their compensation for an often difficult early life but Capricorn Rising peeps barely need styling, their basic bone structure is SO awesome. The finest specimens look like someone engineered them.
Paul Newman – A Solar Aquarius, he had Mercury AND Venus smack-bang on his Capricorn Ascendant.
Catherine Deneuve – Libra, Moon/Lilith in Leo and Capricorn Rising. Metal accessories – a flash watch, a chunky bit of platinum – are THE Capricorn Rising accessories. Saturn = Iron/Metal/Silver/Brass/Gold. They draw strength from it and of course, such items represent portable wealth, a totally liquid asset and literally ON the Capricorn Rising. As opposed to be being digital, cumbersome to sell or in a vulnerable-to-theft vault.
Zac Efron is a more contemporary example of the cheekbones and chiseled jawbone combo that is the signature of Capricorn Rising.
Capricorn Rising is also brows. Unless they have massively interfered with nature, a la the 90s brow shaping OCD zeitgeist, this lot have big brows. Statement brows. Voila Trent Reznor and Russell Brand:
So if you are Capricorn Rising, you accentuate your brows and you favor metal accessories to suck up to Saturn. You always know what time it is.
Saturn as ruler lends you a natural, stoic composure that vibes regal and which other signs (no specificity here) would do nigh anything to acquire. Queen Elizabeth I and Queen Elizabeth 2 were/are both Capricorn Rising.
So note the brows. This is Queen Elizabeth 2 at the moment of her coronation on June 2 in 1953. She had Chiron exact on her Capricorn Ascendant and Neptune in Libra squaring it.
She is one of the longest-reigning monarchs ever, as befits a staunch Taurus with long-haul Capricorn Rising. If Capricorn Rising were a stock, you would go long on it. They specialize in giving time the finger. Respectfully, of course. Age genuinely does not wither them.
Voila Jane Fonda, whose been working since the 1950s. Note the metal and that is also the trim on the jacket. Capricorn Rising IS the metallics.
And this is Virgo-Capricorn Rising Joan Jett, who is about to have her 2nd Saturn Return and whose Bad Reputation as been taken up as anthem by Ronda Rousey. Jett is still super-relevant and looks supernaturally good. This is her performing a few months ago.
Another key aspect of the Capricorn Rising look is that they can do zero or next-to-zero makeup and it looks clean, fresh-scrubbed, aristocratic. Capricorn Rising can glide in with that clean look and in baseline normcore and make everyone else look over-done.
The super-Frenchy-chic actor Carole Bouquet. Note metal and ability to slouch with cleavage, sans seeming blowsy.
Voila Charlotte Casiraghi, Capricorn Rising brows, clean face – because Capricorn Rising people tend to have a complexion care regime that, along with the bone structure, renders cosmetics more for performance/appearances. Note also the denim jumpsuit. Capricorn Rising can get away with wearing super on fleek fashion that would be hideously unflattering on most people but not them. See bones, sangfroid.
AND Gisele Bundchen.
Another reason they can pull off the undone hair and all look is because this lot are often obsessive worker-outers. They are obsessive everything but the work-outs are where they success-theme, generate endorphins and sweat or grapple with the Iron.
Gemini/Cap Rising Colin Farrell (note his brows) now channels the same ferocity he once reserved for getting laid/out of it into a rigorous work-out regime. And this is Abbie Cornish in Cap Rising chic physique attainment mode:
Recently, someone commented in the Scorpio Style Your Ascendant that I should have said something about how they wear black. But they don’t. At least, not as much as Capricorn Rising.
Lenny Kravitz, in a symphony of black.
Susan Sarandon has been around and being baseline amazing for a long time now. Technically, Capricorn Rising do better without gemstones, as THEY are already Cardinal Earth and gems are rocks, aka Earth. If you are Capricorn Rising, try wearing only metal – no stones – and see how it affects your VIBE.
Taylor Swift has been doing Pluto across her Capricorn Ascendant, Mercury, Neptune and now Saturn since 2012. I like how Pluto ON her Saturn (which some say can be a shit of a transit) coincided with her on the cover of Time magazine.
And then we have Monica Bellucci, who has been working since she was 13 (again, that Capricorn Rising work ethic) and is about to play a Bond “Girl” (she is 51) in the new Bond movie Spectre, making her the oldest one ever. She also appears to be a pantheist: “If there’s something I believe in, it’s a mysterious energy; the one that fills the oceans during tides, the one that unites nature and beings”
Anyway, she favors baseline black a LOT. So often her street style is black, it just seems like her stylists insist on color for shoots and appearances but then bam, she’s back to the timeless security of the mono-chromatic.
A trenchcoat also feels very Capricorn Rising and in fact, cold-climate Cap Rising peeps tend toward serious coats. They will invest in such a thing.
Even when Capricorn Rising people are acting flamboyant, you get the feeling it’s like part of their brand. It’s work. Exhibit A: Naomi Campbell.
Her throwing the telephone at the maid makes a LOT more sense when you see her Capricorn Rising. Poor service or bad help reminds them of childhood issues. NOT that i am excusing abuse toward employees, obviously.
THIS is how she turned up to do her community service for that crime, in a silver (note – metal) evening gown.
And this is Cristiano Ronaldo, the apparent best soccer player in the world. More bones.
And finally, a brilliant example of multiple Capricorn drive: Helena Rubenstein. She was Capricorn Saturn, Sun, Venus, Ascendant and Mercury. She emigrated from Poland to Australia in 1902 and with no money or backing behind her, began a business that became a global enterprise and made her one of the richest woman in the world.
