Style Your Ascendant: Capricorn Rising

Filed in Astro-Fashion

Sophia Loren

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

Paul Newman – A Solar Aquarius, he had Mercury AND Venus smack-bang on his Capricorn Ascendant.

Catherine Deneuve

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

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:

Trent Reznor.

 

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.

Elizabeth 1

Queen Elizabeth at her coronation

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.

Jane Fonda

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.

Joan-Jett-Hall-of-Fame-Opening

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.

Carole Bouquet

The super-Frenchy-chic actor Carole Bouquet. Note metal and ability to slouch with cleavage, sans seeming blowsy.

Charlotte-Casiraghi

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.

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.

Colin Farrell

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:

Abbie Cornish

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

Lenny Kravitz, in a symphony of black.

Susan Sarandon

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-Street-Style

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.

Monica Belluci

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.

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.

naomi-campbell-community-service-last-day-20

And this is Cristiano Ronaldo, the apparent best soccer player in the world.  More bones.

ronaldo_shirts

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.

My AC has Progressed ( long ago) from Virgo into Libra. I love beauty and clothes, and my natal sun, Mercury, mars and Venus are all in Taurus. I feel like i go back in time, and depressiv by wearing boing Virgo minimalism ( thats ooohh so popular here in Scandinavia) Is it really auspicius for me to blend in with the wallpaper and be pure and servise oriented? or is it time to follow my bliss, get a walk in closet, and have others serve me for a change. Is the Progressed AC the thing for me?

“Pluto ON her Saturn (which some say can be a shit of a transit)” I know this is a very old post but I have to acknowledge the bang on choice of words Mystic. Pluto on my Cap rising has been a year of literally dealing with it – bowel cancer.

I just have to add my two cents here — as a highly critical skeptic of astrology, everything mentioned here, including the anecdotal comments, describe my Capricorn Ascendant so perfectly it’s a little freaky. My Cap Asc is in the first few degrees, so Saturn rules my Asc Decan, which supposedly makes the Asc sign effect stronger. Moreover, I also have Saturn in the first house in Capricorn. I wonder if it’s any coincidence that people always think I’m a Capricorn, even though my sun sign is Libra (they are always surprised my sun sign is Libra, because I act… Read more »

Have been impatiently awaiting his post in the hope of getting some astro-sanctioned style advice and it turns out I’ve been doing it right all along, lol – all black, minimal makeup, jacket/coat fetish. It would seem that you just can’t help but look like your rising sign 🙂 Now if only I could suck less at time management…

After reading this, maybe I am actually 0 degrees Cap Ascendant after all.
I say it’s 29 Sag… and First House is all Cap anyway, with Jupiter 3 (Conjunct Asc) and Saturn 18.

And most of those attributes I can relate to. Black is usually my colour du jour… every day. Wear only gold sleepers and 3 gold bangles. Hardly any makeup. High cheekbones. Add mascara to my eyebrows daily… brush them on a la Sophia. Do like a good trench. (But my teeth need some attention.)

Here’s a little tribute to Sophia. She is awesome.

Beyond the beautiful bone structure I can’t help but notice the timeless jackets and the gorgeous legs in tights on Giselle and Taylor… staples of my look for the last decade. The bits about being OCD about fabric were accurate on the Taurus rising style post. But other parts didn’t apply whatsoever to me… I’m a Taurus rising with Venus at 0 Capricorn and found this article on Venus in Capricorn a few days ago: http://www.oxfordastrologer.com/2013/11/venus-in-capricorn-beautiful-bones.html It was very interesting to me because beyond being compared to Scarlett on more than a few occasions (https://youtu.be/lBEn3a4TIUw) I have accidentally had a… Read more »

I had been wondering about the Venus aspect as well- I’m a Libra Rising, but my Venus is in Capricorn, so when your chart ruler is in another sign, does that sign’s aesthetic get imprinted on your rising sign’s? I ask because my look seems to combine aspects of Libra and Cap, and because I have very sculpted and apparent cheekbones, collar bones, hands, feet, etc. And my preferred lingerie style is definitely Cap-inspired.

I do not have Capricorn rising, but I do have Saturn/Asc as well as Capricorn Venus. Yes, to all of these. This describes me very well. I did not need braces when I was younger because my teeth were already straight- Saturn energy coming into play. I also favor minimalism in all of my outfits- too much jewelry/flash/blind makes me feel overdone and stuffy. And yes, obsessive workaholic energies. I like minimal makeup or none at all. Dislike spending too much energy on hair because then I spend the rest of my day worrying whether it is still upright or… Read more »

I am really puzzled. Can MM answer this–or can anyone else respond?

My question is: Why was “preppy” style associated with Sagittarius, not Capri? I thought Preppy was the essence of vibing rich and old money. So why Sagittarius?

I’ve been trying to figure it out and I can’t even make a wild-shot-in-the-dark guess.

syrynx

Preppy to me is more your ’50s- ’60s ivy league kid; vests, flannel trews, pleated skirts and twinsets. So yes old money, but young bod in upright, even uptight duds. Deffo No ripped jeans no kohl and black leather a la Joan Jett, LOL.

Electro

I see preppy as learning toward academia and having the money to travel and knowing its importance for cultural repertoire. Cap on the other hand vibes to me as solid, grounded, and fiercely pushing forward. Solid. Embodying rather than seeking. IMO.

Sagitta
Sagitta

Electrolocator, let me see if I read you right, using a very broad brush and stereotyping both Sags and Capris: The Preppy Look is appropriate for Saggo because it’s about wearing boat shoes and striped t-shirts or polos, and looking leisurely, well-read, and well-traveled, as if you were about to go golfing, or hang out with your college buddies and talk about Lucretius all night. The Preppy Look is not appropriate for Capris because Capris don’t waft about vibing “casual”–they are more likely to wear a “power outfit” and look as if they are about to takeover a company or… Read more »

Well I’m grateful for “Style Your Ascendant” mainly because I’m still getting to know mine better. Haute or Low I still am a part of this world and celebrities dead or alive add some spice to astro ideas. I’m a Cap rising Libra Sun and my mom loved shopping for me until I was an adult so I often dressed like a 60 year old when even in college. (I never turned down free clothes). It took a good finance job that requires good suits and heels to discover my real style. I’m still struggling at nearly 50 because the… Read more »

Cap rising as well and I resonate with this 1000%

Naomi Campbell is a Capricorn Rising 😯 NO WAY!!! Losing my faith in astro. NO Cap rising would turn up to community service like THAT!!! Surely she’s Leo rising. Caps don’t throw phones either!!!!

Don’t agree that Cap risers can get away with wearing “super on fleck fashion” either. I’d leave that to the Gems.

Jane Fonda looks like a Leo ascendent with all that metal.

Don’t like metal. Too flashy

I’ve been waiting for this post since I have Saturn rising in Aquarius AND uranus in Capricorn, and always wondered just how much of the cap vibe I channel into my looks. The description was pretty spot on: brows, all black everything (though I do wear earthy tones quite often), metallic accents, minimal make-up. My facial bone structure is not particularly remarkable, but my collarbones, knees and hip bones have always been very apparent (and I’ve never been skinny). I also have long, thin fingers, bony wrists and big teeth that cost my parents a small fortune to fix (hehe).… Read more »

Interesting. I’m 25 sag rising but have cap intercepted in my 1H (placidus). Juno/Lilith conj at 1 cap. I do have the bone structure and brow thing, but struggle with the responsibility factor that is Capricorn. I’m not at all practical. I lack practicality. I read horoscopes with Capricorn as my rising usually though because the house placement matches up. I just ignore the Saturn rulership info and read Sag for Jupiter.

So many facets of my personality have now been explained. I always wondered if my Aries moon gave me the brows but now I can chalk that one up to my rising sign too. Colour of choice to wear: black. Jewellery = none, or plain gold sleepers. Make-up just makes me feel disgusting! Oh and people say I’m a vampire because I haven’t seemed to have aged much past 7. Okay, maybe 12.

Ok So I don’t have Cap rising, but I do have late Sag rising (20 deg) and with most of Cap in my first house.

But in 2012 I became a progressed Aqua rising and boy did I feel that change occur. In my Draconic chart I am Cap rising as well. I figure this is a vibe I can channel if I want/need to.

High Cheekbones – check

Her female “friendships” is not supportive of all women from what I have seen. It is exclusive and often does not include people of colour, unless they are white-passing and skinny. It also seems to be just cis-women but I could be wrong. Older women aren’t represented either. It is more like those annoying cliques you see in high school.

Finally! I’ve been waiting oh so impatiently for this. It’s a long way from Aries to here (in more ways than one!). Both hubby and I are Cap Rising, and it’s all there – bones, ‘brows, timing, no/low make-up. No watches anymore, or jewellery. And I usually prefer deep navy to black. But I am known to be freakish when it comes to knowing what time it is – to the minute.
This was well worth the wait Mystic – thanks! I feel honoured to be in such great company!

I’m an Aqua with Cap Rising and this describes my style uncannily well: no make-up, all black but it vibes elegant or unassuming rather than funereal (I hope), trench-coat favorite of all (old-time elegance, those deep practical pockets — it was originally a coat designed for soldiers after all). Over the last couple years I’ve overcome my aqua aversion to jewelry with a hematite ring and simple necklace with a dewdrop of onyx, the gemstone of determination.

So if this post is spot on, there is hope for me yet to get out of my awkward phase. ? I’m not partial to any one color (except teal or green) but I did try wearing all black yesterday and it was nice thing to try out. I did have very bushy eyebrows as a child but they’ve thinned out from all the waxing and threading I’ve done over the past 10 years. And yes, I did inherit my mother’s cheekbones. I also have a thing for gold, hehe.

I do have good eyebrows — didn’t know that was a Cap rising trait. But they are too light to show up much in photos. Minimal or no make up. Black and denim almost all the time. Camel and medium gray are okay occasionally, but I rarely feel like wearing colors. I had only bright colored exercise tops and started to feel really cross about wearing them. For dressing up wear metal cuffs, chainmail belt, metallic heels, stacks of bracelets or earrings, silver and gold leopard print, lame, sequins, studs. And I like coats the way most people like shoes.… Read more »

I’m a Capricorn Rising/Aquarius Sun/Taurus Moon. I definitely always know what time it is. If I don’t have my watch on (which I always wear to work) they I am pretty talented at guestimating it. I’ve got the bones as well. The cheekbones, the jawline, but it doesn’t stop there! I do find myself admiring my hands and feet also. Born with just about perfect teeth, and no wisdom teeth. When I get a new dentist they usually compliment my teeth. I’m currently in search of a flash watch and serious coat. 🙂 I also have the brows going on,… Read more »

Wow. My boss must be Cap rising—cheekbones–check. All black ensemble–check. Even the desk and stationery are strict monchrome. Metal watch–yep. Fierce work ethic–tick tick tick.

Oh I’ve been waiting for Cappy Rising ever since this series started! My hubby is a Solar Aries with Cap Rising – this is him to a tee – especially the eyebrows. He complains about them, but they make his face. That, and bone structure. Not to mention he’s 37 with nary a grey hair in sight, and could still pass for someone at least 5 years younger. I knew I was onto a good thing when I tried to convince him he needed a special timepiece to call his own 🙂

my cap rising ( + mars) aqua sister. pretty much all of this. over 40 and might pass for mid 30s easily. eyebrows, unflappable facade, work ethic like a freight train, looks like a museum artwork when she wears those shades of pewter, bronze, brass, metallic black, ,.. you get the idea. A trenchcoat, on her looks like she ought to own the copyright. etc. 🙂

maybe it;s also a cap rising thing, she can wear tertiary hues like a boss. colours that make me look like a corpse (i am summer colours ish), she is insta-sophisticated-VIP.

Pi,

Did you get your colors “done”? I was a winter- and avoid yellow based anything. It was worth the $20 in 1983. Hair silvering now- cannot bear grow out of momentary color binge-

I got my ‘colours done’ many years ago too Kell. I think I was a spring or autumn. I remember being told not to wear white. I hate wearing black, love wearing colours, and clashing them. Hate anything beige or muted. (gem, aries rising) I used to wear a lot of red, now find it has to be a softer plummy shade or it is very harsh with my colouring (and age!). Never been into red lipstick though, more plums and purples. I actually only wear makeup occasionally, because I can’t be bothered. Lately I’ve been wearing a lot of… Read more »

Hi Kell, no I’ve never done that 🙂 , I was just reading a thing once that showed multi examples of colours / season thing and I recognised one as mostly the colours that tend to make me look alive, make my eye colour look extra piscean etc. 😉
Silvering hair or not, a family friend still wears what suits her – we did an experiment where we held a few things against her face that were not ‘her colours’- instantly added 10 years. Freaky!

Great read. My newly-teenaged daughter is Cap rising, and she has the bones, the beauty and all that Cap attitude and work ethic already. I found your observations very helpful and affirming, thank you!

I’m Capricorn Sun. This was a serious list of babes, starting with Paul Newman. I would like to dress more chic like that.

I do have thick eyebrows and have always liked wearing black, it’s just more versatile and low-maintenance. Maybe Cap Rising also enjoys black because it’s elegant and does not distract from their work ethic? I also second the feelings of someone here who said she didn’t feel comfortable wearing bright neon workout clothes. I don’t have that killer bone structure, though. I guess I have more of a “Virgo Rising” face.

Omg Yess. Me too! Black is my go to color for everything (Hair, Wardrobe, Home decor, Electronics, etc.) It’s simple but yet powerful, like Capricorn!
