Motostrology – Capricorn




Welcome to Capricorn season and Happy Birthday to all the Capricorns! The Sun marches into this grounded Earth-sign on December 21 just as we are solidifying our resolutions for the coming year. Perfect timing, Capricorns are built for planning and goal-setting! Capricorn is known for setting challenging aspirations for themselves and working hard to achieve them.

They’re extremely driven and committed to being a success in whatever arena they decide to conquer. Capricorns can get a bad rep for being no fun, which is entirely untrue (they actually have a wicked sarcastic sense of humor) - it’s just that for Capricorns, work IS fun! They truly love the hustle. They are the climbers of the zodiac who are focused on the monetary rewards, recognition, and satisfaction that come with their accomplishments. Capricorns make fantastic entrepreneurs and leaders as they have plenty of ambition, perseverance, and a natural air of authority about them. They take charge, get the job done, and ensure it’s done well! Capricorns have very high standards for themselves and others. They mature quickly in life and even as young people they come across as ‘old souls’. Their disciplined nature serves them well, along with the old-fashioned values at their core loyalty, dependability, and integrity.

At this point, you may be starting to think that being a Capricorn sounds a bit tiring, and it can be! They take on a lot, stay the course, and don’t cut corners. Growing up fast and taking on serious responsibility while striving so hard to achieve new heights can be a heavy burden. The achievements make it all worthwhile for Capricorn. But as they age and gain wisdom and perspective, they learn that career achievements, status symbols, and applause don’t mean much if they aren’t allowing themselves to enjoy the journey and let loose now and then

Capricorns, you have full permission to enjoy the fruits of your hard-earned success. Give yourself a break, let your hair down, take the ride - you’ll just have to schedule it into your busy calendar! With Capricorn’s more cautious tendencies, their adventures are planned rather than spontaneous. Solo cycle excursions are perfectly suited to their tough, independent personality…as long as they’re well-prepared with all the protective gear and a Triple A card. Capricorn’s destination of choice will be somewhere low-key where they can connect with nature, an essential place of bliss for any Earth sign.


If you’re a Capricorn Sun, Moon or Rising sign, then you’re sure to relate to these energies to some extent. If you don’t know your ‘Big 3’ signs, then get in touch! Knowing these 3 pillars of your character is the starting line in your astrological self-exploration.
