I just came across this and it's pretty interesting to read. Check it out!


The Hindu Book of Astrology, by Bhakti Seva, [1902], at sacred-texts.com

p. 14

Capricorn.

All persons born from December 21 to January 19, inclusive, were born under the sign of Capricorn.

This is the last sign of the Earth Triplicity, and is the dark or mysterious sign of the earth. It will be well for you to study, read much, and do a lot of thinking. Many professional men and women come out of this sign, especially orators, lecturers and teachers. Education and knowledge of all kinds will be very beneficial for you. Work hard at one thing at a time, and don't try to accomplish too many things in a given time. Act as you think best, and don't permit anyone to run your affairs. By attending strictly to your own business, and not meddling or interfering with the affairs of others, you will become very successful. At times you are liable to become blue and depressed. Really there is no cause for any Capricorn person to ever feel dejected or disheartened, as everything good in the Universe is attracted to this sign. By being kind, gentle, noble and generous you will

p. 15

become very magnetic and charming and people will love you, especially those of the opposite sex. You also have wonderful hypnotic powers which can be brought to a very high degree of development by always being patient and never allowing yourself to become angry or to feel envious or jealous of others. Both your magnetic and hypnotic powers will lead you to wealth and success. Be careful of your money, and don't try to help others too much. Always keep well informed of the progress of the world and keep your mind open, broad and tolerant, respecting the opinion of others even if you don't believe in them. Always put your whole heart, soul and energy into everything you undertake, no matter if the undertaking is a small one. I know your nature is to do large and great things, and that is all right; but ever remember if you do the smallest thing in the world successfully it will put you in a position to do something better and greater. All Capricorn people ought to have a good business education, and should ever strive to acquire and save money. I don't mean to be stingy, mean or penurious about money matters, because no one in this great and wonderful age will be much of a success who is not liberal and

and broad-minded with respect to money matters. The

p. 16

women of this sign are very sensible, practical and lovable; they make excellent wives, managers of homes and housekeepers of large institutions. Music to you is very beneficial. Some excellent singers, musicians, actors and actresses come out of this sign. Enjoy yourself all you can in a rational and sensible way, such as attending social gatherings, entertainments, concerts, lectures and public meetings. Be moderate and temperate in all you do, and your success and happiness is assured. Never doubt your ability to amass money in any line of work which you really love; it is foolish for you to engage in work that is utterly distasteful to you, and in which you cannot willingly put your whole heart, head and soul. Ever remember that while wealth is a great thing to have there are other equally as great things for you to acquire, viz., perfect health, and a thorough cultivation of your mind and higher nature. Don't be proud, arrogant or dictatorial; remember we are all of one family and that we are all God's children. It is difficult to get Capricorn people to give much time to the cultivation of the spiritual side of their natures; yet, when once aroused in this respect they often become enthusiastic and earnest workers in religious causes. Right here I desire to state that it will be well for you to remember

p. 17

that without any exception every great and true man and woman in all history was a lover of God and obeyed the Divine Law. You may question this, but look into the matter fairly, deeply and honestly and you will find my statement is the absolute truth. Avoid being skeptical or pessimistic; don't talk too much, but be a good listener. You can become a very good and useful citizen by holding in your mind high and noble thoughts, and keeping well balanced. When a Capricorn person can fully control their mind so that he or she will not be angry, and free from worry or anxiety, there is no telling how wonderful they will become in their achievements. By often silently thinking and meditating on life and its meaning and the beautiful and higher things in life you will draw to you the Life forces of the Universe and all the good planetary and solar forces of your sign which will bring you to the greatest success and complete and perfect happiness. A study of occult science, philosophy and metaphysical works would be of untold advantage to you. Many of the greatest men and women in th

if you see fit to do so. There is scarcely any limit to your powers if you only will exercise your wonderful will intelligently. A happy marriage is essential to the success and happiness of Capricorn people of both sexes. In India the Yogic astrologers say to you people, get married and follow the Divine command by raising a family of children. We also are very strict in our advice to Capricorn people, that they must love their fellowmen and do unto all as they would be done by. The Golden Rule has been practised in India for thousands of years before the Christian Era. Your sign is governed by Saturn, and you are continually surrounded by planetary forces and solar fluids which can help you. Now, dear friend, be guided by what I say, as I love you dearly and wish to see you make your life a grand success. You can read every word in this book many times to great advantage. A Capricorn person is very foolish to ever doubt his or her ability to succeed.

This sign is governed by Saturn, and the gems are white onyx and moonstone. The astral colors are garnet, brown, silver-gray and black.

The diseases that you are most likely to suffer from are indigestion and melancholia. You are also given to over-work, because of your determination to succeed in whatever you undertake.

p. 19

Your best companions are those born in Taurus, Virgo and Libra, also those born in your own sign

People born in this sign are usually short of stature, and sometimes have dark complexions and hair, with remarkably expressive eyes.

May the peace and blessings of the Blessed One and all the Devas (angels) and all Yogis of the Universe be ever with you, dear sister or brother of Capricorn.—Bhakti Seva.

CUSPS.
If your first breath was drawn when one sign was taking the place of another, you will partake of the characteristics of both signs. Hence you belong to the Cusp. The residence in a sign consists of six days; any time less endows one with some of the qualities of the preceding sign.

THE CUSP OF SAGITTARIUS—CAPRICORN.
December 21 to 27.

These Cuspers are, as a rule, happier than those born in the sign Capricorn. The social and intellectual ambition of Capricorn is modified by the

p. 20

democratic attributes of Sagittarius. The natives of this cusp are among the greatest thinkers of the world. They are natural teachers of the young, and are much fonder of children than the average Capricorner. The successful training of musical talent is easily developed by the response of earth to fire, and the companionable influence of Jupiter. People born in this cusp are just and kindly, are great observers and fine critics. They do not fall in love easily, and when they marry it is because of affection. They are exact, methodical and efficient in all they undertake. They are good dancers, good linguists, and the best of traveling companions.

Found some REAL Good Analysis of Capricorns that I will post from this site called How to Date a Capricorn

Ultra-sensitive! Capricorn women tend to be ultra-sensitive and easily offended. That's only because Capricorns are sensitive to other's feelings and tend to be extremely cautious in how they approach people and situations. Expectations! Capricorns strive for all great things financial and emotional. Very generous with time, money, attention, so in turn expects the same from everyone. Easily disappointed when she feels ignored or wronged in any way. Gentlemen! We love manners and good treatment. Being spoiled and showered with attention when we want it. The Best! We love having the best. We work not always for what it does for us mentally but so that we can afford to live and have the best. We are not cheap people and in turn, do not appreciate cheapness. Bacon! If we don't get what we want, when we want it, we pout, but we get up and get it ourselves. We are go-getters, we just like to do things on our time. We do not like being told what to do. Controlling men need not apply. This is the type of woman who will remind her man that she helps bring home the bacon. Loyal! Will give you the shoes off of her feet. Very loyal and devoted as a companion. Can be very loving and extremely passionate in every sense of the word. Just don't make her angry. Someone once told me that a person who loves this much, can hate this much; that's scary. There is definitely a lot of fire in us.

"Can be as hot as fire, and as cold as ice. You wouldn't believe she is the same person. Elephant's memory! While we are loyal, we also do not trust people very easily and can be unforgiving. We do not forget. Won't stay angry long, but have a hard time letting things go. Must always win in an argument. We are analytical and will save your misdeed, tailor it to fit the current argument, and through it right back in your face when the fight starts. Beauty! We appreciate beautiful things. We love having fun, watching comedies, but appreciate a good sad movie or chick flick or love song. We can be quiet at times which can be mistaken as sadness. We like being alone with our thoughts. Men, if you see your Capricorn woman sitting alone thinking; trouble might be brewing. Ask her what is wrong only once. If you get the sense that something is wrong - step away - leave the room - go and quietly clean up the mess you made or watch a ball game and let her talk when she is good and ready. Look at Me! Usually the center of attention, and loves it as long as it is welcomed attention. Kind of likes to be in control of situations. Tends to be good with people and speaking in public places. Can switch her personality and mood to fit any situation. This is the type of person who can give a good speech at a function like a wedding. Very emotional and has a hard time with hiding emotions, but will use them to her advantage in any given situation.

"I am a capricorn male, truely at heart, and its true, capricorns do know alot about astrology, like aquarians, both are interested in it usually, which i have alot of both signs in my chart, and my outer personality is more aquarian... capricorns are definitely very sensitive, especially to personal jokes, it's very hard for them not to get hurt, thats why they don't get along with (cunning) geminis and (dimwitted) leos, (careless) sagittarians and (self centered, idiotic) ariens, thats our oppinion, but capricorns have the ability to walk in other peoples shoes and detach from themselves, feeling for other people when someone else gets insulted or hurt, but you may not ever see that on the outside, like two powerful forces pushing against eachother, its hard for capricorns to start things or show anythnig, because they may not know how they feel themselves until they are truely in themselves, capricorns don't really like to feel indecisive or having the ability to see all sides of an issue, but it is their duty to respect everyone and everyone to see things eye to eye, no matter what, everyone is equal

think capricorns are responible for the bad things that happen to them, and its hard for them to accept that, and they cannot stand their mistakes, but only subconsciously and may not see it, so they have to learn how to move on, while very young, as they are pessimistic and worrisome,if they do that, they wil rise higher than anyone, if not, fall lower than anyone, because they have to bring with them a heavy package throughout life, and accept their humanity, then they will be realistic, the best thing they can be. but they may be spineless at times, on the outside, and the more time that goes by- anxieties set in and sensitivities get stronger, but spineless as they are- they have the ability to see the most fairest point of view and shove it in everyones faces, the symbol for capricorn is usually a goat fish, and the goat part is the spine of the character, that keeps its outer layer protected and together, but its also the part that has no sense of direction, wich neither does the fish , which is wishy washy, sensitive and all over the place, the problem is that capricon has to bring all the weight of the world of emotions(fish part) and responsibility in order(goat part) and decisiveness, and it may seem hard to do, until the fish and the goat work in perfect harmony, its hard because they are the equivalent to aries and pisces, the begining and the ending, a sign that sees the whole picture and one that forces one oppinion into action

it may not seem like they are emotional orcring, but this is completely untrue, they have the extremes of mentality, emotions, passion and determination underneath it all, it doesn't show becasue these emotions are deep, which means hidden and strong. earth is basically an element that is balanced, with negative energy, harder to get off the ground than any other element, espesially for capricorns. lately i've been starting to think that female capricorns have more of a lift-off open emotions ability, look anywhere and the female capricorns are usually more open, and do't fit the characteristics that much, because they express their emotions more readiliy, showing a good balance bravery and care, unlike males that can't detach thier two sides from 1 another. another thing that this all creates is their rigid behaviour, capricorns can't stand being pushed into making a fast decision, this is not a good thing for them, butneither is waiting for too long, its good to find a balance for all 4 of the cardinal; signs, more than any other, as they find it harder to attach to their deepest emotions than any other quality group. capricorns are alos very anylitical and mental!! they go over things alot, this is all in the quest to find order out of chaos, you may not see it, but they think long and hard

Guys, if you plan on dating or getting involved with a Capricorn woman, please be nice. Think about what you say first and be very gentle with her. We are worse than Scorpios. If you think you've said something not nice to us, please let us know. We are willing to forgive and forget, but if you run away and avoid us, just make sure you change you identity because we will get you sooner or later or when you least expect it. We also like things with value and character not necessarily expensive but something with meaning. On a date, please bring your money and your best appearance, or be honest that you don't have enough money and we are willing to pay everything and even buy you things if we are heading to the mall. We know how to spend our money and we know what the limit is, so don't be afraid to say you only have this amount for our date. One more don't take your Capricorn date to your friends apartment and watch the ball; she's not a party animal. If want a very romantic date with her, you may take her to the beach for a walk or just drive around. Also do not ignore her when you are with her and no flirting with another women either, she will know it even if she seems like she's not paying attention, if you do, be prepared because she will flirt with another men and will do it in front of you just to let you know you're doing something it's not acceptable to her. We are capable of doing this in a matter of minutes so you will realize it before you can even take your second breath.

Archer if people read that site where tons of Cap Men have commented they'd gain some introspect into the Cap Man. That site was very good.
