Capricorn Decan 1 ~ Dec 21 to 30 (0º-10º)

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 21 – 30. 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.

Crystallising Dreams & Venerating Loved Ones

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.

  1. I dont know where to begin,but Fatima you could not have described anymore accurately the heart of my soul’s feelings/imaginings/intuitions/yearnings.T.Leary coined a term which may describe best the gene pool that those of us who feel&see that way belong to……”Futants” http://www.bibliotecapleyades.net/esp_autor_freer03.htm

    It has been a long hard road as the Cappy mantra bemoans.I am 65 the 26th,and i am at a plateau i never dreamt of,but desired very much.It has been worth the journey.

    I have a strident chart that screams recluse,but until Pluto in Cap grounded me,i only knew the restlessness of it’s opposition to Cancer Uranus/MC/PoF~Squares to ASC/Mars>Moon/DC.I see the unconscious direction of a troubled childhood into adulthood to the present,with all my pondering and contemplating life,from it’s micro/maxi coherency,to it’s search for meaning,purpose,and that ever elusive….”Love”

    Since Pluto entered Cap i found a cabin in the rural mountains of the Pacif NW…..with a small river underneath my back porch…..and dreaming of a yurt for my last days,unless Uranus picks me up again.Where i live is on my Uranus/ASC line from the dienst astro-cartography section.It’s conundrum for me as i contemplate and observe the approaching and last square and subsequent manifestations.I am at peace here….but restless.Cardinal,angular GCoss wants to shake something UP!My roots and childhood were in Cambridge Eng,but i will not return there to a crowded society,when there is so much space & country here.It’s getting harder to hide in the US due to the fascist police state we live in,though be it unseen to the hive-mind matrix that prays in their temples to protect a spiritually declining society and quasi-empire on the tit of it’s matron’.But out of this hard growth a new consciousness will sprout,that will be strong from the wind’s constant change and Uranian storms that will charge new frequencies with a reckoning balance of ionic bliss into Aquarius……i think some deep freeze is looming for some places.

    Does that not smack of a Mercury transit on Sun & cross?THAT’S WHY MARINA’S POST IS SO DAMN ON and i had to write after i saw this post.

      I can so relate to your described sentiment. Especially over the past two years (if not 10) I have experienced the most challenging times/lessons of my 71 years, as have others during this time of major changes in which I quite literally lost my farm. I was and will always be, a goat farmer.. as well as organic produce.culinary and medicinal herbs. bees. et al. I grieve deeply for the loss of my animal family as I go forward in the last leg of life. In vision, creating excitement and peace in the magic to come.
      I too live in the PNW and have been actively seeking solace in a cabin away from societal distractions. I have a motorhome and have settled on the idea of making a journey to find that place of my childhood visions.
      I know that for me and many of us who are awake to the folly of over population, consumerism, pollution and toxic environment, corruption of government and corperate business, it is time to create a new saner model. For me, that is in creating a model of sustainable (Permaculture) based alternative. and doing so, in that cabin in the woods. I believe connecting with a latger community is key to manifesting positive change for myself, and definitely for the planet..
      Since we are neighbors, if you are interested in connecting in community, you can find me on FB. My name is unique, so not difficult to find. Blessings.
