Capricorn! About Your Sign...
Capricorn is one of the most stable and (mostly) serious of the zodiacal types.
These independent, rocklike characters have many sterling qualities. They are normally
confident, strong willed and calm. These hardworking, unemotional, shrewd, practical,
responsible, persevering, and cautious to the extreme persons, are capable of persisting
for as long as is necessary to accomplish a goal they have set for themselves. They
are reliable workers in almost any profession they undertake. They are the major
finishers of most projects started by the 'pioneering' signs; with firm stick-to-it-ness
they quickly become the backbone of any company they work for.
Capricornians make of themselves, resourceful, determined managers; setting high
standards for themselves and others. They strive always for honesty in their criticism
of self, they respect discipline from above and demand it from those beneath them.
In their methodical, tough, stubborn, unyielding way, they persist against personal
hardship, putting their families and/or their work before their own needs and welfare
to reach their objectives long after others have given up and fallen by the wayside.
In fact when practical ability allied with the drive of ambition are required in
employees to make a project succeed, Capricornians are the people to hire. They
plan carefully to fulfill their ambitions (which often include becoming wealthy),
they are economical without meanness, and able to achieve great results with minimum
effort and expense. Because of their organizing ability they are able to work on
several projects simultaneously.
They have a great respect for authority but may not, if they reach high rank, be
willing to listen to other opinions on things they are directly responsible for.
As the ranking authority figure in a given situation they expect their underlings
to be as self disciplined as they themselves are, and to perform every task undertaken
to the highest standard. They are, nevertheless, fair as well as demanding. Among
their equals they are not always the most pleasant of work fellows for they are
reserved and too conservative, valuing tradition more than innovation, however valuable
the latter, and they are often humorless. There is also a tendency to pessimism,
melancholy and even unhappiness which many Capricornians are unable to keep to themselves,
especially if they fail personally. In the extreme this trait can make them a very
depressed individual; ecstatic happiness alternating with the most wretched kind
of misery which is so subconsciously buried that he or she should seek help if such
emotions become frequent. For the above reason, capable Capricorn should spend many
hours in meditation, gathering the strength to control such inner emotions.
The swings in mood are not the only reason some Capricornians deserve the adjective
based on their name - capricious. They can be surprisingly and suddenly witty and
subtle for the quiet, reserved individuals they seem to be, and they also have a
tendency to ruin things by unexpected and utterly irresponsible bouts of flippancy.
In certain individuals in whom the characteristic is strong, the temptation to do
this has to be resisted with iron self-control. Another unexpected quality in some
Capricornians is an interest in the occult which persists in spite of their naturally
skeptical turn of mind.
Their intellects are sometimes very subtle. They think profoundly and deeply, throughly
exploring all possibilities before deciding on a 'safe' alternative. They have good
memories and an insatiable yet methodical desire for knowledge. They are rational,
logical and clearheaded, have good concentration, delight in debate in which they
can show off their cleverness by luring their adversaries into traps and confounding
them with logic.
In their personal relationships they are often ill-at-ease, if not downright unhappy.
They are somewhat self-centered but not excessively so, wary and cautious around
people they do not know very well, preferring not to meddle with others and in turn
not to allow interference with themselves, thus they tend to attract people who
do not understand them. Casual acquaintances they will treat with diplomacy, tact
and, above all, reticence. They make few good friends but are intensely loyal to
those they do make, and they can become bitter, and powerful enemies. They sometimes
dislike the opposite sex and test the waters of affection gingerly before judging
the temperature right for marriage. Once married, however, they are faithful, though
inclined to jealousy. Most Capricornians marry for life.
Their occupations can include most professions that have to do with math or money
and they are strongly attracted to music. They can be economists, financiers, bankers,
speculators, contractors, managers and real estate brokers. They excel as bureaucrats,
especially where projects demanding long-term planning and working are concerned,
and their skill in debate and love of dialectic make them good politicians. They
are excellent teachers, especially as principals of educational establishments where
they have the authority to manage and organize without too much intimacy with the
staff members. If working with their hands, they can become practical scientists,
engineers, farmers and builders. The wit and flippancy which is characteristic of
certain Capricornians may make some turn to entertainment as a career.
Possible Health Concerns...
Capricorn governs the knees, bones and skin, so its subjects may be liable to fractures
and strains of the knees and other defects of the legs. Skin diseases from rashes
and boils to leprosy (in countries where that disease is prevalent) are dangers,
and digestive upsets may be caused by the tendency of Capricorns to worry or suppress
emotions. Anemia, Bright's disease, catarrh, deafness, rheumatism and rickets are
also said to threaten the natives of this sign.

The color of choice for Capricorn isBROWN
and most dark colors
The beautiful Onyx is your starstone. Onyx is a type of agate (cryptocrystaline
Quartz) that is recognized by the alternating, parallel bands of black and white.
It is used for the carving of cameos, (a figure carved in the white layer which
stands in relief against the black layer). If the white layer alternates with a
different color then the agate is given different names: if red it's carnelian-onyx,
if brown it is sardonyx, and if the second layer is of the pale shades that characterizes
common chalcedony it is called chalcedony-onyx. A solid piece of pure black Onyx
is dyed. Agates are not always dyed black unless it is called Onyx, (Agate is frequently
dyed red, green, blue, etc.)
