Happy Birthdays, Capricorns!

Capricorn Howard Stern, Moon Taurus, Gemini Ascendant

Some of you know of January 12, 1954 Howard Stern, some of you know little of him, and wouldn’t want to know more! Yet he has been an impressive intellect and figure on radio. He’s been fined and fired yet stuck to his guns. 2013 and 2014, Stern and Simon Cowell shared first place on Forbes’ list of America’s highest-paid television personalities with $95 million earned between them! In 2015, Forbes placed Stern as the world’s highest paid media personality and the fifth highest earning celebrity worldwide, at $95 million.

This is one instance the planetary placements and aspects make a huge difference in temperament from the classic Sun sign interpretations. Though Stern rampaged his way to success, nonetheless, he did the traditional Capricorn things, worked hard for that success and didn’t give up! He has Mercury and Venus, kind and politely conjunct his Sun, but his Sun is 1 degree opposite Uranus, the planet of shock, rebellion and freedom. Venus conjunct his Sun makes him attractive, makes money. It worked with, perhaps saved him from, his main attraction the scathing Saturn/Mars in Scorpio. With Gemini rising, at 6′ 5″ he is much taller than the average Capricorn. Interestingly his last name Stern is one of the common traits of Capricorn.

Unlike some elders, Capricorns, he is softening with age, is thoughtful about his previous behavior and has apologized to some. In a NYT interview he said: “I didn’t need to be that hungry. There was something going on inside me when I was angry and feeling very threatened and not feeling good about myself.” “It would be really pathetic if I was still in the same space as when I was 20 or 30….”

Stern has a bulldog named Bianca (Stern’s Moon is in Taurus the Bull), and has been a long time supporter and fund raiser for North Shore Animal League America. He supports Gabrielle’s Angel Foundation for Cancer Research, and Janie’s Fund, a philanthropic initiative to bring hope and healing to girls who have suffered the trauma of abuse and neglect.

He married and had 3 girls with Alison Berns. In 2000 he began dating model and television host Beth Ostrosky. They married October 3, 2008.

In the early 1970s, Stern began to practice Transcendental Meditation. He credits the technique with helping him to quit smoking, achieve his goals in radio, and cure his mother of depression. He continues to practice it to this day.

December, January, most of Feb, that is Capricorn, Aquarius and Pisces, there are no exact outer planet combinations.

  • Uranus and Pluto continue in a close range square. Though no exact aspect will be formed again, the reminder of happenings since 2010 remain with us, many taking years to work through.
  • The recent Saturn square Neptune with us most of 2015, first exact aspect Nov 26, is not finished by any means. Two more to come June 17, Sep 10. See more
  • Chiron & Uranus continue in their many years long journey closely together in the background…. More

The first outer planet aspect of 2016 is Feb 23, Jupiter opposite Chiron. This aspect starts the Jupiter/Chiron/Uranus threesome that continues through September 2017!  See More


Outer Planet Transit Aspects with Capricorn 2015 to 2016! 

Pluto is in mid Capricorn through 2017. Pluto is Scorpio’s planet and Capricorn, is a sextile sign, an earth and water mix. Affinity and opportunity. For most with mid Capricorn factors it is intense these days with Pluto right there! This is an unsentimental combination, cleaning up the bricks. Nothing escapes scrutiny and spent structures are unceremoniously razed with no regret, while others may be fastidiously renovated to the nines with superb increases in value. Some careers will end while others are enormously prosperous. Intimacy may take some hard knocks or vows made or renewed that stand until the end of time. Seeing how things really are, and working, building, rebuilding, as needed, are key.

Neptune is in its own sign, just before mid Pisces, still hasn’t reached the hump point, is still finding its way. It is a water Planet in a water sign seeking a deeper side of life. Capricorn is SO different! Yet, both are the peak seekers of their own kind. Capricorn is the last Earth sign, knows the reality, what it takes to thrive. Pisces is the last sign of the Zodiac, assessing the whole achievement, both of earthly matters and the Spirit of our Soul. Capricorn is the scientist and follows the laws of nature and the higher spiritual laws as well. Pisces is the dreamer believer intuitive artist, seemingly a layabout at times, yet, without effort, often arrives before Capricorn does! When they listen to each other, amazing things can be done for the least expense of time and resources. Capricorn’s accomplishments become steeped with a rich vibrancy, so much more than just getting the job done on time….

Uranus is just past the mid of Aries, moving into the final half of the degrees. Capricorn is the sign of authority! Uranus in Aries is constantly bucking it’s way along, giving Capricorn a hard time, undoing some of what was hard won over a long period of time. Life is like a Buddhist sand painting swept aside ~ get out your attachment robes and keep your eyes open to new possibilities! The upstarts are learning how to approach for least resistance, best results. Some of what they find they are surprised is solid and stands true, there is an unlikely alliance formed. Capricorn expertise, experience saves time, and becomes a framework for future campaigns! On the street, avoid picking fights, and generally be careful of accidents.

Chiron is also in Pisces, starting the last half of the sign. The Magi Society thinks Chiron is the #1 marriage factor and good in business. Capricorn loves a well made long term alliance and being down-to-earth. The old mythology casts Chiron as the wounded healer teacher. So much the better! We need our prowess and sharing how to live well. Capricorn has a built in detector and if there isn’t backup for what Chiron says, it will know. Sometimes we wish things were a certain way, but life just isn’t there yet. Chiron holds the Pisces dream; Capricorn can make it so if their hoped for miracle is mutual!

Saturn is about a third of the way through Sagittarius now. It will make mid Sag in 2016 then retrogrades back to 9 Sag! Factors in your chart from 9 to 16 degrees will be activated one after the other. Saturn is Capricorn’s own planet and Sagittarius is Capricorn’s preceding neighboring sign! Saturn is now in the sign that prepares the way for Capricorn’s success. It makes the plans, sees the opportunities to come, sets the foundations. Principles are tested for Truth and how well they work. Trial promotions find which styles secure the best results. Doubts that block timely progress are discovered and put to rest. And Saturn discovers that fun, stopping to take in the sights along the Path, refreshing your Spirit, is enjoyable and well worth the time it takes, and enhances the results!!!

Jupiter in Virgo is happily trining Capricorn, earth and earth! It will go through the rest of Virgo by Sep 9, 2016! It seems every step is blessed! If Jupiter in Virgo gets bogged down in details, Capricorn quickly nips and tucks to the essentials. Capricorn doesn’t miss a trick and sees which of Virgo’s suggestions to keep, and praises their ingenuity! Virgo sees when going by the book can lack the special quality needed, the one that makes the difference, and can show it to Cap’s satisfaction! Extraordinary progress is likely. Capricorn may be heads down working as usual, but Jupiter offers up a campaign that shows the wonderful contribution that is being made, and the word goes out to people who so dearly need what is being produced, especially at the good price it is being offered at! Pride in service.

Jupiter in Libra is so social Capricorn wonders if any work will get done at all! But if you are looking for grants for a tough sell, they may bring the breakthrough! Jupiter in Libra may bring longed for recognition, smooth dicey relationships, team you up at the next level! Your job may just be to accept your good fortune! If they challenge you, sort out what’s true, what’s exaggerated, what to let pass you by. Change what makes sense, keep your high working standards, let time work for you. If legal matters come your way, get a proven advocate who has common sense and keeps a broad perspective. Check credit reports before engagements. Know your potential partner(s) whether personal or business. Otherwise, let the good people get you away from your usual workaday world, maybe take a trip! It might be just what the Dr ordered!

Any of these factors may be activating other factors in your chart as well as your Sun. They may be difficult, may be rosy, maybe both! Check with your favorite astrologer for the whole picture!

Capricorn ~ Winter Solstice, a New Year! 

Capricorn Portal Reynolds Chelsea Celtic Sanctuary
Irish landscape designer, Mary Reynolds, creates amazing natural, healing gardens! This is her Gold winning Garden at Chelsea Flower Show, 2002, Tearmann sí – A Celtic Sanctuary with Moon Gate! See the trailer of her film Dare to be Wild!

Capricorn is the 10th sign, at the top of the basic astrological chart framework. It symbolizes the peak of Ascension, and sometimes the fall from that Grace. It is a natural part of the cycle to decline from the peak, essentially the beginning of a new Circle. There is the enjoyment of our gains, assessments, reviews, some rest, wondering what is next. Our achievements change us, bring us to a new level, a new vantage point, and evolution brings more! When the cycle reaches its low point, in the opposite sign Cancer, there is a gathering, a consortium if you will. Ideas and energies are sprung, some catapulted, upward like seeds sprouting, into new territory!

Capricorn is that natural time of year of endings and beginnings. It starts on Winter Solstice, the longest night, the darkest deepest sleep. Food is scarce, plants are growing slowly. And on that very day, the turning point, the days start to get longer, we can see more. We are enticed to emerge from the cave, stretch a bit, take in some of that electric crisp air. Traditions are kept alive on those long winter nights as the history is told around the table. Sharing our bounty reaffirms our bonds. We acknowledge our successes, and failures, and are cheered by our people. We sit in thoughtfulness and new possibilities are born.

As with Winter Solstice, Portals, Gateways and Thresholds are points of demarcation, a step into the Future. Though Capricorn rules the Past, whether archaic or archeological magnificence, it is also the Builder! There is no doubt of its intention! It intuitively seeks the most durable materials that give excellent service. They are sustainable in every way. The future is built in! New times are well founded.

They are Magicians. Things of the Past are transformed, remeshed, renovated, updated. New laws are introduced in a timely fashion. Careers are redirected. We are reformed! Seasoned pros are our Guides. They shepherd us to levels above what we are used to, show us how to circle away from danger, make switchbacks up steeper grades, catch us when we fall. It’s not always smooth going, but we get there!

Fathering is one of the greatest honors, and tests, of Capricorn. There is always that challenge of finding just the right balance of holding your child to high standards, and tenderly loving them up with high praise to their personal capacity. Teaching them life skills then letting them find their own life Path requires patience and letting go at the same time. If your child is also a Capricorn, then you know how there are doubts at times and how demanding grit isn’t always the only answer. Hands on experience, proving it can be done, is Earth sign wisdom. Parallel on the job training with schooling makes perfect sense. Failure is just a way of finding out what doesn’t work and that’s as valuable as any other experience. A practical Cappie maybe gets some expert advice, regroups and picks another route adding their own ideas as well! Excellent!

Capricorn rules the knees, that we fall to and pray from when the going gets tough, that bend as we walk forward. It rules the bones that hold us upright so we can anticipate where we are going and see where we are stepping. Caps are famous for their sure footedness! Cap rules our skin that holds us in the shape we may have, that senses the temperature around us and which way the wind is blowing! If there is going to be a storm, we know it and can take shelter or choose another direction or a different time. Perfect barometer! Good personally, it tells us how to take better care of ourselves, we sense important timing in relationships. Great in business. If we go chilly, probably not a contract or person to do business with. We sense intention and if it is in harmony with ours, and have an uncanny sixth sense how long the situation will hold true to our benefit.

We are so blessed by your Spiritual perception, your sensible advice in our workaday world. Capricorn, sometimes being called a Karmic sign, often stays in spiritual love with us until they fulfill their mission. Dharma is the aim ~ to do the work of our Souls. They do theirs, help us find and stay with ours, that we may in turn help others with theirs!
