Capricorn Decan 2 ~ General Meaning

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 Dec 31 –Jan 9. 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 2Capricorn 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.

Barristers & Baritones In Artistic Domination

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 civilize the ‘rougher’ folk.

The tarot card associated with this decan is the Three Of Pentacles. 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.

Sun Capricorn 2

Nunki 12º ~ “ Influential public position, favourable for domestic and family matters” [7] Ascella 13º “Good fortune and lasting happiness”. [8]
Vega 14º ~ “Critical, abrupt, reserved, unpopular, fleeting
honours, influential position, insincere friends.” [9] “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.” [11]

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.” [12] 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.

25 thoughts on “Capricorn Decan 2 ~ Dec 31 to 9 (10º-20º)

  1. Had one friend of this kind… but not anymore!

    She was the most insensible pretentious and wanna-be person I´ve ever met!

    I´m glad she is not my friend anymore… on my choice.


  2. Oh dear. Mercury and Ceres on Vega/Albaldah in a generally-packed Capricorn. I am clearly a monster in human form. 😉

    1. Oh, forgot to mention – that comedian was the very brilliant Mike Gunn.

    2. How odd. I actually saw him at a Comedy Night in Chiswick the other night. I had no idea he was on the bill. He actually did that line! I just found out he started his career dressed up as funeral director. I wish I could find out his birthdata. He is so Saturnian.

  3. Oh dear feel like a bit of a monster after reading that! Yep i will say i like my surrondings to be beautiful my home is my sanctuary and I effing hate ikea! I do love beautiful clothes that are of good quality i do hate cheap resource eating mass manufactured clothes..does that make me a bad person??? Yep prone to pangs of snobbery but for 2 seconds and tell myself to cop on and get over myself. I Dont lord it over people who having a tough time I do csting work and im not in it fir the power and social standing. Yep im a dec2 cap born on dame day as elvis and bowie but be gentle i have a big heart too and that hurt

    1. Yes, I realise that was a bit of a generalisation and have changed it. What I meant to say was: “The more judgemental (but also insecure) among them, do well as judges and barristers since they quite like to lord-it over the poor unfortunate wretches in the dock. It makes them feel better about their own perceived failures.”

  4. my sister and all her efforts towards perfection has made for unlivibility, the furniture bit is well in play as a 3 thousand square foot barn, 1 thousand foot out building, basement, attic are crammed. It’s strange too…Capricorn desiring obstacles? as a kid we called her packis-ratis , she borrows and doesn’t return, buys and is first in line for the hand out and is a great believer in the written word so thinks she’s right all the time. Like other Capricorn she totally lacks intuition, doesn’t understand the importance of real spirit or charm. Although is a good actress. She and her husband keep trying to get their hands on our mothers estate even though she’s still alive…the fact that I’m one step ahead preventing and in the most recent episode humiliating them, I avoid her and will never be alone w/ her or her husband as images of a shallow grave….I also avoid my brain injured sister for the same reason.

    1. My sister also wanted the trees….. too separate battles, with her sabotaging my plans on removing 24 250-300foot pines from around our mothers house, interior rot had them leaning over the roof, big effort on my part as I had to travel down there 5 times, it would of been less but my sister removed the tags, and I had to re-flag, then tried to persuade mother to cancel. later after the price was signed on she wanted the cut logs brought to her place (200 miles) at mothers expense.

    2. 2 additional friends here, both spell binding story tellers, bringing to life ordinary work-place characters inexhaustibly continuing the story of hours, me not missing a word. 1 a woman w/ venus/conq/sun, 2 a man w/ venus/mars/mercury/sun. delusions of grandeur yes! The man was an ex- business partner and was always calling up the press to see his latest creation, when the truth is less grand, both social climbers, and suffer exquisitely over slights, (all ears me!), the woman’s ex husband is moon/sun/ dec 3, so he really turns the screw. They are both fond of their things and identify with them in a class orientated way. The woman is very sweet tho, but has the same focus of Capricorn’s on the object not spirit.

  5. Haha, absolutely spot on about the furniture, I know someone, sun on Sabik and Venus at 12 Capricorn, generally a wise, kind and lovely person but ABSOLUTELY MERCILESS when it comes to furniture, if it was made after 1850 he doesn’t want to know and he admires or despises people on the basis of what they have in their homes. He’s made a career out of dealing in very wonderful furniture that gets overlooked at provincial auctions, and his Moon/Neptune conjunction gives him almost supernatural instincts for sniffing out treasure. His own home looks like a museum set and if someone moves an item slightly it’s enough to give him a fit of the vapours.
    Unfortunately his Venus square my poor moon meant that I couldn’t stand up to his withering attacks on anything I did to my home – now I understand why he wouldn’t live with me! Thank you Marina, all has become clear!

  6. But my jupiter retrograde keeps me humble, and down to earth.. Only major planet to be retrograde..
    But that jupiter retro sure knows how to understand that money isnt everything.. My brother is very capricorn like.. And he adores money, buying stuff, talking about money..
    He has jupiter direct.. Sometimes I find jim ridiculous in his obsession with it.. But thats duality for ya :—p

  7. Very true about the furniture..
    I have midheaven 14-16 degrees cap, and i like to dream about expensive real estate.. And i often watch christies and sothebys real estate, and what they have to offer..
    I would much rather live in the woods, with rustic furniture, instead of buying my stuff at ikea.. And i am very critical of the house renovation shows and interior stuff, and have no qualms about saying my honest opinion, blurting out: what hideous colors, that looks cheap, horrendous materials and decorations and so forth..
    I like pretty stuff.,. Athough content knowing i will probably never own a 50 million $ mansion, i just look at it for fun, to see what beautiful arcitecture some can invent..
    Also an artistic side of course.. With neptune 17 degrees and uranus 16 degrees..
    I remember being at a party once, and sae this paintng a girl had done as a present, and could not control myself, and said, how ugly! It was mean.. The same girl once asked me for some art advice, and i said sternly that she had to copy and learn from ancient greece, renaissance, and study the works around 1880-1920.. And read every art book she could find.. Hopefully its not all snobbery within these degrees :–p
