So today is the third time in a week that Capricorn imagery has penetrated my consciousness (I’m not very symbol aware – my nose is required at several grindstones, perception is limited from that angle). First a sticker of a goat appeared on my home-office desk one morning (placed there by Better Half, who found it amongst his old stuff and thought I’d like it), then an embroidered sea-goat on a t-shirt appears as a recommendation whilst idly web-shopping, and finally the fixed star that makes up sea-goats’ tail is apparently prominent in my chart. Also one of your comments about amazing hoof-grips for sheer cliffs has been bouncing around my head.
WTF is happening? I have no Cap in my chart, in fact I have an Earth deficiency. Seriously, the goat is chilling by himself in my 12th, currently watching Pluto cruise past on his path of des(recons)truction. So why all the goats? Why now?
My gut tells me it has something to do with my final year university project (ie; critical point of a big career change). The project is getting a lot of unexpected positive interest, it’s growing rapidly, unsolicited help has appeared. It’s supposed to be a manageable academic project but it keeps whispering things like ’empire’, and I have to tell it to shut up because I have neither the energy or resources. No really. My Saturn doesn’t let me ignore time/money/energy debt; I’ve tried, he got angry, it didn’t end well. This steep project growth makes me uncomfortable – maybe that’s why I keep seeing goats?
Does this happen in people’s astrological lives; that previously uninfluential signs/planets barge in on the status quo? Or is this just Murphy’s Law in the form of a randomised cluster of events?
Curious about what you and subscribers think of this.
Dear Future Goat,
Hang on, I have Pluto in my Soul Sector at the moment – and yes, the path of Plutonic re-de-construction is one i am familiar with. I should purchase a granite bench with a plaque on it there. So you are Aquarius Rising i presume which means – as you may not realise – that Saturn is your planetary ruler along with Uranus. You could also be super Zeitgeist-prescient and just be trendily getting with the new Saturn in Capricorn era – we are ALL Capricorns now.
Or, i would hazard your Midheaven just progressed into that sign? It is hard to say without seeing your chart but i think YES there are times when a new sensibility is suddenly apparent and you either resist for the sake of consistency/loyalty to a dying era or you evolve. Actually, this is most likely your natal Saturn being powerfully activated. You certainly sound Saturnine enough to me. I DREAMED of Saturn the night it went into Sagittarius – it was a really potent archetype, a man of indeterminate age but definitely older, on a white horse, with amazing abs and posture with a white hair that had a kind of indigo/blue rinse through it. It sounds naff but it was not.
Anyway, fair warning to all – Saturn in Capricorn is coming and this will make Saturn Vibe a lot more potent. I think you are just really with it. Now i need to go and file my hooves + complete monthly horoscopes.
