Stubborn as a mule or tanacious like a goat?

Someone recently said to me about tenacity and stubbornness and was it a characteristic I was pleased I had? My response was well I was born in December and so therefore my birth symbol is a Goat.  Their response was “you don’t believe in all that rubbish do you?”

So in response to the question … yes I think I do.  I am a Capricorn – The Goat (well there we have it stubborn, always striving to want to improve – ambitious??)

An Earth element and Saturn as it’s ruling planet.  I am married to a Taurean and have a Taurean for a daughter and a Scorpio for a son.  Do we mix well?  Interestingly the other earthies yes and the Scorpio adds another element into the mix.  He is a water element and Those born under this sign are dead serious in their mission to learn about others. There’s no fluff or chatter for Scorpios, either; these folks will zero in on the essential questions, gleaning the secrets that lie within. Scorpios concern themselves with beginnings and endings, and are unafraid of either; they also travel in a world that is black and white and has little use for gray. The curiosity of Scorpios is immeasurable, which may be why they are such adept investigators. These folks love to probe and know how to get to the bottom of things. The fact that they have a keen sense of intuition certainly helps.  This sums our youngest up and is very accurate.

According to my life pursuit is “To be proud of their achievements” and my vibration is: Powerful resilient energy

The sign of the high roller, Capricorn is regarded as the zodiac’s top, but also quiet, life and business achievers. But, there are two very different types of Capricorns.

1)    represented by the mountain goat … climbing higher and higher; never content until reaching the top.

2)  or the garden goat, with little adventurous spirit or ambition but happy to remain within a small domain, refusing to budge unless it is pushed.

Either type of Capricorn, however, is patient and persevering. They reach their goals because they know the longest journey commences with a single step and that the first step is always the most difficult.  

How true that first step is usually the hardest I find but after that it does get easier.

The one thing a Capricorn must always try to do is balance work with play; otherwise they can become too one-sided and work can replace true personal emotional fulfilment. 

It’s the life balance or the ability to focus on yourself (just for a little while and understanding that it is ok to say no.  This is the hardest word I have learnt to use because I always want to say yes and do everything but sometimes we just don’t have the emotional or physical capacity and need to regroup ourselves.

Continually climbing the eternal mountain of success, Capricornians rise to the occasion when faced with a new task or deadline. Even if something comes to a grinding halt, their ambition to reach the ultimate keeps them moving forever onwards and upwards (prompted by the strict influence of ruling planet Saturn).

It is an eternal mountain but one that brings such hope, joy and fulfilment along with the lows as we choose the path that will lead us hopefully to success and sometimes failure.  The “grinding halt” doesn’t usually hold me back but can derail me for a little while and then I am able to regroup emotionally, physically and spiritually.  To resume the journey along the undulating path up and over the mountain. 

Although conservative and cautious, Goats are willing to try unusual approaches on their road to success in business or in love. Romantically, they desire a permanent relationship with someone who’ll give them the affection they crave (and often neglect to give themselves!) “

So is this accurate – pretty much although I would say that I do have contentment but would like to strive to always work to my maximum.  This can be seen in the following 

“The rulership of Saturn – the planet representing responsibility, structure and hard work – ensures that Capricorns in their truest of expression, are ambitious, practical and superb organizers. Although many Capricorns are borderline workaholics, this doesn’t necessarily make them dull or gloomy! They have an offbeat sense of humour, which seems to erupt at the most unexpected moments. Their motivating force in life is success, money, status, authority and – although many might not admit it – love. By nature Capricorns are cautious when entering a new love relationship, but once they feel ‘safe’ with their partner, the cool exterior melts away to reveal a sensitive and loyal heart beneath. As a friend, Capricorns can be relied upon to provide the strongest and most sympathetic pair of shoulders in the zodiac.”

So have you looked at your star sign and checked out whether you have the characteristics that are associated with your arrival earth side?  Or do you think it’s a load of mumbo jumbo?  Each to their own … enjoy.  Cx
