Capricorn Ascendant

Capricorn Ascendant

One of the biggest challenges you may face is fluctuating self-confidence: sometimes you feel like you can conquer the world and other times you doubt your ability to write a simple note for the milkman! This can result in being confident in some areas and nervous in others: you may be certain that you can handle your job, but lack confidence that you can maintain or start a close personal relationship. This often stems from a lack of self-awareness, so you undervalue your own accomplishments. You should trust others’ opinions of you, receiving compliments graciously and sincerely. Interestingly, once you find a stable relationship, you become very caring and attentive to your partner’s needs and your emotions become more positive. These traits may only be visible to your partner; even your close friends may not notice them. A downside is that your natural worry may increase as you care more about your partner.

People with Capricorn rising have a serious demeanor that is hard to miss. They have a dry sense of humor and can deliver jokes with a straight face. Many of them are very funny, but they don’t laugh until the punchline. They exude competence and care about their image. They dress well and act professionally. They aim for success and usually achieve it.

The Ascendant persona is usually shaped by our family’s expectations. For instance, a child with Libra Ascendant may be labeled as “nice”; a child with Aries Ascendant as “independent”; and a child with Pisces Ascendant as the family’s dreamer. We tend to internalize these roles as familiar and use them as our coping strategies throughout our lives. Capricorn Ascendants often assumed the role of the responsible ones. They either felt compelled by their circumstances or by themselves to be the structured, dependable, and responsible members of their family. Therefore, Capricorn rising people value tradition, family, and security very highly. They are always concerned about their own and their dependants’ well-being.

These people appear to be diligent, capable, and reliable to others. However, behind their calm and charming demeanor, they face an inner conflict: they often question themselves, “Am I doing enough?”, “Do I deserve all of this?”, “How can I make things better?” They fret a lot about the future. They have not achieved success easily; they have simply concealed their efforts with a patient, hard-working, driven personality.

People with Capricorn rising often practice self-denial. They can eliminate the unnecessary things in life. However, they are willing to spend money on the clothes they really like (especially those with the right labels) and other symbols of status. They are not flashy, but they have a subtle aura of success that is usually the result of deliberate effort. They are often success stories, even if they had difficult childhoods. They gradually improve their lives with perseverance. Saturn is the ruler of this Ascendant, and this implies a reverse way of living–they are serious and responsible as children, but they grow younger as they mature, learning how to relax.

Celebrity examples of Capricorn Ascendant are George Burns and Alan Alda.
