Capricorn decan 2 is ruled by Mars in the Chaldean system and Venus (Taurus Triplicity ruler). The Sun patrols through the constellations of the Archer, the Harp, the Octans, the Peacock and the Eagle from January 1 – 10. This is undoubtedly the most authoritative decan of Capricorn. The heat of Mars makes it strong in command and extremely competitive. These subjects need to display their achievements in material form and will show off their strengths in quite an ostentatious manner (Venus).
Capricorn decan 2 does things grandly, but there is the risk of them having delusions of grandeur also. The centaur here really aims high, just like status-seeking tropical Capricorn. The artists and musicians among them have a weakness for finely-crafted furniture and will want the highest quality instruments to play on.
Workmanship is of the utmost importance, for Capricorn decan 2 cannot stand cheap, plastic, mass-produced junk. If they can’t afford the solid oak dining table they really want, then they will just trash through substandard items. This is because they believe that it won’t be long until they can actually afford the high-spec version.
Capricorn decan 2 believes they were made for greater things, so the ‘trash’ doesn’t get treated with respect. That goes for people too… The worst offenders of this decan can be very bigoted and may even refer to the lower classes as plebs or worst still ‘savages’. Capricorn decan 2 are missionaries and believe is their duty to civilise the ‘rougher’ folk.
Barristers & Baritones In Artistic Domination
If Capricorn decan 2 never make it to the impossibly high grade that they aspire to, then their mental state can be a problem. Self-loathing and depression can take hold if these goats can’t be the very best. Capricorn decan 2 can also vent their anger and frustration on those they believe are holding them back from world domination. These goats are very good at domination, however, for Capricorn decan 2s have a powerful aura of authority and they make great headmasters and headmistresses….(Continued in eBook)
The tarot card associated with this decan is the Three Of Cups. This card depicts the architect and specialised tradesmen. It is about learning practical skills and putting long-term commitment into building something that will last. Churches are both something useful, lasting and sacred.
In this incarnation, you are ” being rewarded at long last for all the effort you have been putting in for so many years (Lifetimes). Others are prepared to back you now and offer support where in the past you struggled alone with your ideas and plans for the future.” ~ teachmetarot. These folk can be elitists, but the material gain that comes with this decan is usually well earned and deserved. The evolved native does not become complacent, nor expect rewards to be handed to them on a plate. Everything is worked hard for and material gains are valued and reinvested for future generations….

Ascendant Capricorn 2
Nunki 12º ~ “It gives truthfulness, optimism and a religious mind.”  and “Pelagus (Nunki) is an indicator of one who may be expected to be an authoritative orator on Sagittarius and Capricorn topics on business, state or foreign affairs, religion. Interest in long-distance travel and in ships and aeroplanes.”  Ascella 13º ~“good fortune and happiness.”  Vega 14º ~“Can be trained in duties of court. Avengers of crimes and in charge of public courts and inquires. If Saturn is in any aspect with Vega when rising, the native will pursue this vocation with a fanaticism to the point of utilizing tortures and executions to stamp out what he considers evil.”  “The poetic soul seeking the magic in life: One who wants to understand life and the complex interplay of things.” 
The ascendant gives the purest expression of the decan’s energy since no planets will colour its expression. The ascendant is also the relationship axis, so the influences above will play out mostly in how the subject relates to others. With Capricorn decan 2 the ‘artistic domination’ behaviour will be most notable in love relationships. Underworld Capricorn decan 2’s tend to become ‘godfathers’ within their criminal community. They will be the ones giving orders from their shiny office, no dirt on their fine suits. Other Capricorn decan 2 rising goats join the police force and become high-ranking officers. These natives are attracted to elitist clubs and exclusive golf clubs. They like the security of being in a team and looking after their own, like the Mafia. It’s not surprising to find famous Tudor Queen Elizabeth I’s Ascendant below. Her decision not to marry preserved her sovereignty, but also brought an end to her family lineage. This elite ‘gentlemen’s club’ is heavily weighted to the masculine/left brain principle. We find here a safe, secure and straightforward place which does not get distracted by messy watery emotions, touchy-feely empathy or indeed sex… That would get in the way of good business.

Sun Capricorn 2
Nunki 12º ~ “ Influential public position, favourable for domestic and family matters”  Ascella 13º “Good fortune and lasting happiness”.  Vega 14º ~ “Critical, abrupt, reserved, unpopular, fleeting honours, influential position, insincere friends.”  “Seeing the magic in life; touching another world. Devotion to another world; music and the arts, or a strong spiritual life. A charismatic leader or a cause.” 
Here are the Zodiac’s workhorses, they will labour and toil through the most phenomenal amount of errand with a steely determination to see it through to the end no matter what. Mars ruling this decan makes is extremely ambitious and they see themselves as being important specimens of the human race and essential to the building of civilisation. The word ‘industrious’ describes these folk very well. Sometimes Sun Capricorn 2 can find they just cannot get off the treadwheel. When struck by this workaholicism Sun Capricorn 2 wills for someone to throw a great big spanner in the works. In some cases, this action pushes the cloven-hoofed ones into the very opposite mode.
They become as devilishly indolent and stubborn as the Taurus triplicity that rules here. You can definitely see a touch of Beelzebul in some of the natives below, there is a dark humour and also a touch of the supernatural too. Austin Coppock calls this decan the Pyramid. “Castles are built, labyrinths of laws and hierarchies. The architecture of civilisation takes shape.”  The pyramids are indeed mysterious but also hierarchal. The soul needs to go thorough upward stages of evolution in order to return back to the source. This decan is about the competitive nature that helps achieve excellence. The structures that support Sun Capricorn 2 spiral the human upwards and are aspirational.
