Natives with the Sun in Capricorn can appear to be serious, sombre, melancholic, calculated, practical and materialistic. Their instincts are about getting ahead in life, overcoming their fears, obstacles, and limitations. They need to feel that they are accomplishing a worthy task which may feel like an inner pressure which may not give them rest so they waste little time on frivolities. Their goal is to build a strong foundation for their security as they get older as life can start full of hardships thus the serious look but as they get older and feel more secure within themselves they spark up the inner light shines forth and they appear youthful. They like more conservative outlooks and know how to save for that rainy day. They like discipline, structure and work deliberatively.

Also, Pluto entering the last degrees in Capricorn continues to promote transformation and regeneration. They have the choice to commit themselves to change their egoic drives, being transformed and be the crystalline consciousness. Happy Birthday, Capricorn.
