Cradling the Capricorn Heart
Every fibre in their bodies, reminds Capricorns the heart is a physical organ. And yet as it provides the body homeostatic mechanics, it also pumps love, discontentment and yearning through their vessels -grey washing every logical framework, leaving them confused and uncertain. It is easy for Capricorn to become too one-sided, neglect their emotional fulfilment and eschew all romantic sentiment. Their ruler, Saturn, mentors harsh discipline and constant reminders of harsh reality. Although the Capricorn will conform, deep within them, these individuals are hiding an intense need for appreciation, adoration and pure love. They will work tirelessly if only to gain the recognition of others, rarely receiving it in the form they need. This is legacy of Capricorn’s austere expression and surface level assertiveness. Their natural composure and tendency to avoid conversations with emotional undertones suggests their company is unlikely to gauge the screams coming from deep within their beings - ‘tell me I have done a good job,’ ‘tell me you appreciate my work’, ‘tell me you noticed..’. More than often, the people around them have no idea, of the childlike vulnerability and terminal isolation that Capricorn inside.
Capricorns are exceptional at masking inner worries, anxieties and volatilities. Born with an inbuilt sense of self assertion and responsibility, these individuals feel they must remain consistent, stable and dependable, for the sake of what is their cosmic duty. People feel naturally inclined to rely on Capricorn for the sake of re-assurance, and this often leaves them feeling as though if they lost their dependability, they may have nothing else to offer. Even early on in life, the Capricorn was victim to an intense inner monologue. This is one that is quick to criticize, and remind them of their shortcomings. The fondness and admiration of others is the suture to the cutting critique, and yet, they experience so much trouble expressing this need. Capricorns understand adulation can come from career success, and will direct most of their energy into ensuring the revenue of corporate triumph. Materialism comes only from the need to fill the outside with the jewels and treasures that can be missing from the inside.
Capricorns prefer to deal with issues on their own. They are typically reticent about soliciting advice. They tend to feel vulnerable, and uncomfortable in deep conversations regarding themselves. And even when by nature, the Capricorn seeks nothing more than the approval of someone else. Often time, Capricorn feel unworthy of affection and devotion, believing they have not achieved enough to be recipient of the love they deserve. Innately more oriented to work than pleasure, it is common for Capricorn to repress all emotion and sentiment until they have a logical composition to work through. The tendency of others to find comfort leaning on Capricorn for their support instils them with the fear that if they lose stability, everything around them will collapse.
I guess all I am trying to say is next time you see a Capricorn tell them you love them and they are so appreciated and loved.
