Capricorn the Zodiac’s Late Bloomer
Capricorn are very much about soliciting their real place in the ‘real’ world. Their gifts lie in the realm of organization, pragmatism and ensuring efficiency found within the existing structures. Capricorn are a unique sign of the zodiac courtesy of their curious tendency to ‘age backwards’. Considered ‘late bloomers’ in astrology, Capricorn really come to life when they can sit back and finally enjoy the revenue from many years of hard work. They want to build something important in the world that stands as a testimony to their dedication and effort; and become eternally illuminated when they these projects finally see fruition. The comfort that comes with age is usually enough to free the Capricorn from their inborn feelings of responsibility, duty and unworthiness. By the time they are elders, Capricorns have the ability to really let go and delight in simple things in a childlike way.
The Capricorn life is filled with many lessons leading to the attainment of will power. Their ruler, Saturn is a powerful ally that throws these individuals many obstacles in path, though always providing the promise of immeasurable success once they are overcome. The early life of Capricorn seems harsh, with many conflicts arising with authority as well as within themselves. Typically reserved as children, they were often scared of expressing their true feelings and emotions. Young Capricorn are eager to shoulder adult responsibilities and feel more comfortable around people older people, and will seek out friendships with people outside their peer group on purpose. Sometimes Capricorn only allow themselves to express their inner child when they are almost too old to enjoy it.
In their 30’s, Capricorn finally begin to release hold of all the self imposed restrictions and limitations. They begin to allow himself to relax into life a little more and start growing into their own skin. The Capricorn youth can be plagued by the monologue of a vicious inner critic; the inner judge that is always quick to criticize and deliver a well timed reality check. As Capricorn ages, they learn to create that equally opposing voice; the voice that tells them how beautiful, intelligent and vital they are. With every birthday crossed off the years, the Capricorn becomes lighter, freer and truly blooms as the incandescent flowers they are.
