Broad Overview of Sidereal Capricorn
For sidereal Capricorn, the need to have enough has taken priority in their lives and all the skills, talents, and habits they’ve developed grow from that need.
If you want it done efficiently and without the drama of demands for recognition and praise, get sidereal Capricorn to do it. They are resourceful, direct, pragmatic, and the ultimate realist.
As one of the 3 earth signs (including Virgo and Taurus), sidereal Capricorn uses the tool of realism to complete the task of taking control of their material resources and their feelings. By conforming their needs to what is available materially and emotionally, they often consciously and unconsciously deny their emotions. This is a consequence of experiences where they’ve been denied or had emotional connection withheld from them by caregivers.
Capricorn is often parentified by a caregiver or by circumstance as a child. They learn to do without because there is usually someone else in the family or household with needs or feelings that were deemed more important. There simply wasn’t enough room for the feelings and needs of Capricorn. They had to take care of the feelings and needs of others. This is why they are so good at being the Caretaker at work, in friendships, in relationships, and in their families.
Sidereal Capricorn in Love

That’s how the Capricorn parent will know that you care.
In love and as a parent, sidereal Capricorn will resist letting others take on responsibilities because the loss of control can be incredibly triggering.
