Do Capricorns Like Silly People?

Do Capricorns like silly people – is a search term which led someone to my blog. It made me chuckle so much that I decided to dedicate a post to it. It also made me intensely curious about what had inspired such a search. Whether I’ll be able to answer the question… doesn’t really matter because the querent is long gone and chances are they had already made up their mind about the relationship between Capricorns and silly people, they had the answer they wanted and were just looking for confirmation which they may or may not have found in one of my posts about my Sun sign.

My uncertainty as to whether they found what they were looking for comes partially from that problematic issue which occurs in most interactions – you know what you mean when you’re expressing something, you know where you’re coming from, you know what you’re thinking and feeling (and all the tangents which connect to it), however the other person interprets what you’re expressing from where they are coming from, from what they are thinking and feeling (and all the tangents which connect to it).

The person who asked that question knew exactly why they were asking it. They probably had a Capricorn in mind (maybe themselves), someone with whom they have a personal connection. They have a particular definition of the concept of ‘silly’, and of who they consider silly people to be (maybe themselves in this scenario). This question has a living breathing world within it which inspired it and prompted this person to use it as a search. But I can’t see any of that, all I can see is the words as they are… or as I interpret them to be based on my own personal reference points for Capricorns and silly people – if I use myself then Capricorns and silly people are one and the same. There are other Capricorns which could encompass the silly people label too.

The serious label which is often assigned to Capricorns isn’t without merit. It isn’t just a veneer or a facade, or a projection which other signs have applied to our sign which sticks to us like glue even though it is incorrect (as some of the other things which are associated stereotypically with Capricorns often come across as being). We can be very serious people. Ridiculously serious… which would explain why a common search term which brings astrology fans to my site links narcissism and Capricorns. Narcissists take themselves extremely seriously and find it nigh on impossible to laugh at themselves. Capricorns do take themselves seriously, but they can and do laugh at themselves, however they usually do it in a deadpan style and so it is easily missed and misinterpreted… which in some ways makes our wit funnier for us.

There are many different forms of humour. Many different ways to interpret the word ‘silly’. Many different Capricorns. And many types of narcissist. As many as there are people in the world.

If you were to accuse a Capricorn of being a narcissist, they might consider that you were being humorous. They might enjoy the jibe as a delightfully silly interlude in an otherwise serious day, and accept your accusation as a nudge, nudge, wink, wink between you and them.

However if you were being serious when you labeled them as such, and they realised that you were earnestly enlightening them to what was wrong with them according to you, it might raise an eyebrow of disdain in your direction and they might consider that you were being a silly ass… partly because if they were a narcissist, confronting them about it is a silly thing to do. You’ve just revealed your hand and yet you keep wondering why you’re always losing at cards.

Tell a Capricorn the awful truth about themselves… and they will more than likely pause to assess your reasons, motivations and intentions for the words which have just spilled out of your mouth and what they reveal about your mind.

If you think that you’re doing them a favour… be sure you’d enjoy having that kind of favour returned. Capricorns don’t like being indebted to anyone and pay their I.O.U’s as soon as possible. They also have a tendency to keep hypocrisy as a pet peeve.

.

Most Capricorns are aware of their faults, flaws, and all the other things which annoy other signs about them. They annoy us too. We’re quite stoic about it, which often irritates others, especially those who think that we should be on a mission to eradicate such things, change who we are until we become who we are not (to please who exactly?), transcend being human, rather than accept them, own them and be responsible about them. Embrace the fact that we’re human and it’s messy… but a mess can be creative. Margaritaville, anyone?
