Are you a Capricorn?



December 22-January 20

Gemstone: Amethyst, Turquoise

Ruling Planet: Saturn

This is a sign of contrasts. There is a great potential for success in every Capricorn, though sometimes they refuse to recognize it, and their outlook can be pessimistic so the potential may remain undeveloped. On the one hand, some members of this sign are ambitious and aspiring with the energy and will to succeed in whatever they set themselves to do. On the other, there are those who may have the desire to do well, but are hindered by inhibition and lack of self-confidence that is sometimes disguised by a feigned laziness. Parkers’ Astrology

Created on the cusp by Vicky Morgan, Pisces and Cate Shier, Cancer,  Faneuil Branch, Boston Public Library, 1999.
