Capricorn decan 1 is ruled by Jupiter and Saturn. It ascends through the constellations of the Archer, the Telescope, the Shield and the Serpent from December 23 – 31. This decan is dominated by the constellation Sagittarius the archer, so these folk aim high with their arrows and shoot to kill. They combine the ambition and authority of Capricorn with Sagittarian enthusiasm and zeal. They have a strong and honorable
work-ethic and are so religiously dedicated to whatever path they choose in life, that every business deal they make is sacrosanct. Everything in their life is a crusade, no matter how run-of-the-mill the situation might be. But we are still in tropical Capricorn so this crusading is all very serious, even the comedians among them work incredibly hard to get a laugh.

Shooting to kill may sometimes even be literal because of the presence of ruthless Facies here. 99.9% of the time though, the piercing arrow of the archer will just be a very astute symbolic shot to the heart of the matter. These folks deliver rapier-witted one liners that completely disarm their opponents. On any pulpit (Whether work or at home) their sermon will utterly convince the flock around them. Yes this is no ordinary goat. Maybe there is something about these horny hoofed ones that knows what it is to be one of the little sheep only too well. With afflictions to this zone, or with Facies prominent they know how terrible it feels to be the black sheep of the family. Those Capricorn decan 1’s then have a lot to prove to the world.
Two nebulas in this zone bring the inevitable eye-sight problems. These days it’s not such a big deal, but the ancient “handicap” has left its mark. In modern times we can see that these star clusters are amazingly beautiful works of cosmic art, something only possible with the advent of the telescope. In this decan we do indeed find both stars of the constellation Telescopium. A modern interpretation then would be that these nebulas will gave a person vision and foresight to see into the future and the ability to imagine what is beyond the visible.
