The true nature of Capricorn lies in water, as the rising half of the strange being a live fish, hence, Capricorns feel. They do not emote openly as do Cancer natives, yet they feel even more deeply due to their watery depths.
The duality of human nature is represented here by the goat, innocently but rapaciously grazing on a mountaintop, having the tale of a huge fish, which, free and wild, thunders through the sea. The natural Capricorn native struggles with the same rapacious appetite, the same drive that thunders through the natural world. The prudent magickal Capricorn concentrate these forces into a finely honed tool of Will with which to reshape the world.
How does the prudent Capricorn reconcile such opposites? By using the disciplined nature inherit in every child of Saturn to concentrate her energies from within, rather than trying to restrict from without. It is our internal Saturn who says 'Enough!' This iron britched orb is that which gives our life form, structure, boundaries, even to limitations. Here is the influence which inspires us to do most serious planning and growth; we mature by measuring ourselves against ourselves. It is we, rather than the influence, which decides whether or not we make the grade.
Saturn rules here and gets along fine with boisterous Mars, exalted in Capricorn. We can indeed reach our ambitions heights!
The moon in Capricorn can not emote or express feelings, in sad shape! Jupiter here in Capricorn is robbed of his generosity and spontenaity. These issues have to be reworked and worked around in the other aspects of the chart before we can work them out inside.
