Capricorn: The Developmental Lessons


” Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony.”
-Mahatma Gandhi

In this world, where image carries excessive weight, it’s easy to become captivated by what others seem to be.

In fact, it’s not terribly difficult to get caught up in the maintenance of our persona’s in lieu of the cultivation of our inner cores.

More often than not, we grow to realize that a facade makes a lot of promises, however it doesn’t withstand the test of time. The return on investment is not all that we thought it would be.

An essential part of Capricorn’s life task is the development of true integrity.

integrity is defined as : The quality or state of being complete or undivided.

Simply put, Capricorn’s greatest growth comes from becoming a whole person, leaving no division in thoughtword or deed.

Displaying stellar consistency no matter what situation you might find yourself in. Through the successful implementation of integrity, you will grow to build a solid reputation as a role model. Someone who people trust. A solid example for others to emulate. 

This is not an easy task.  For emphasis, I want to repeat that again:

this is NOT an easy task.

Capricorn is symbolized by the mountain goat.  Growing from acorn to oak tree is the mountain that you must climb. This requires the delay of short-term gratification in favor of making slow and steady progress toward more long lasting and significant achievements.

Even when  you do reach the top of this mountain, you may find yourself with very little company.

Capricorn’s must recognize that true leadership has it’s price.

However, being alone doesn’t have to equate with being lonely. By using your times of solitude strategically, this allows you to plan, organize and structure short and long-term goals which will allow you to reach even greater heights.

Gaining integrity is a lifelong process. It requires that you trust your inner authority, discipline yourself and engage in a tremendous amount of self-honesty.

Capricorn: You were born to fulfill this task. Always remember that no matter what happens, your true worth will always be measured by your internal evaluation system.

See you at the top of the mountain.
