UPDATE February 18, 2020: I’ve discovered that I could re-submit the files for the book, so the Sun in Capricorn section has been added to the print and the kindle/e-book, as well as a few typos corrected! Hurray for digital self-publishing!
It has come to my attention that in my latest book, Shedding Light on Jyotisha, Vedic Astrology for Beginners, 2nd Expanded Edition, the Sun in Capricorn description in the chapter on the Signs or Rashis was accidentally left out. I want to thank my friend Diane of Indigo Moon Woman for pointing this out. It was in the 1st edition, so a clerical/re-writing/editing error on my part. 🤷🏻♀️
Here is the full section for Capricorn, The Rashi of Makara, with the Sun in Capricorn Addendum:
Capricorn, The Rashi of Makara
Capricorn is the tenth sign of the zodiac. In the West Capricorn is represented by a goat with a fish tail, but Makara actually means crocodile, an animal that is equally comfortable on land and in water. Both symbols speak to the stage of life and of the spiritual path where one is still living in the material world on earth but also submerging consciousness into the watery depths of both the subconscious and the unconscious realm of the sea of the Universe. Under the influence of Capricorn, one may feel disillusioned with material matters and overburdened with responsibilities, but still dutiful.
- Ruled by Saturn
- Element of Earth
- Cardinal Sign
- Symbols: Goat-fish & Crocodile
- Mars exalted in Capricorn
- Jupiter debilitated in Capricorn
Ascendant in Capricorn indicates one who is very hard-working, steady, has a strong sense of duty, and often is rigid in their ways.
Moon in Capricorn indicates one who is emotionally stubborn yet sensitive and loyal. Capricorn Moons can also be self-sacrificing, rebellious of traditions or of change, and at times feel depressed, though this may be their path to connect deeper to their Higher Self.
Sun in Capricorn indicates one who deeply wants to activate and deal with past, accumulated karma. This can evoke many unusual and problematic events and hardships in one’s life, but the soul’s goal is to learn the karmic lessons so it can move quickly towards awareness to shine its inner light upon all the practical matters of physical life.
