By The Power of Capercorn

The moment I saw it I loved it. But why? What was it about it which inspired me to feel for it? Why did I love it?

It… is the image which is the feature of this post.

It… is by Kira.

What do you see when you look at it?

I see the zodiac sign Capricorn, which is my sun sign. We’re in Capricorn season at the moment.

Several heavenly bodies are transiting the sign of the Seagoat in space – the Sun, Mercury, Saturn and Pluto.

In astrology, Pluto in Capricorn has been voted most likely to destroy existing structures in your life.

Don’t worry, though, because Saturn in Capricorn will rebuild… as long as you’re willing to do the internal DIY which comes with the personal rebuilding.

Mercury in Capricorn is there to help you with thinking things through methodically. Don’t buy the wallpaper until you’ve rebuilt the walls. Don’t rebuild the walls until you’ve sorted out the foundations.

Sun in Capricorn shines its light where you need to see what you’re trying to ignore.

Stop ignoring it.

You think it’ll go away if you do, but it won’t and it will get sad that you don’t want to look at it.

It’s not ugly, you just think it is. It’s actually rather beautiful, but you refuse to see it.

The sadness will eventually get mad at you for pretending it isn’t there.

The sad which became mad will at some point decide to burn everything with fire… then perhaps you’ll understand it.

By the power of Capercorn embrace what is real, what is authentic, what is true to you – that’s you, as is, raw, sans fards.

And then all those grays and greys will reveal their magnificent colours to you.

The hard problem of consciousness is only hard and a problem because we’ve decided to make it that way for ourselves…

I wonder why we did that and keep doing that kind of thing?

Must serve a purpose…

What do you think?


  1. Interesting..
    Got 27 degrees capricorn in 7th house in my draconic chart.
    With 21 degrees on descendant.

    I have been challenged by an ex, to build up a business, hone, marriage and have kids together..

    Our composite chart has venus 19 degrees in 12th house..
    With 28 degrees on the ascendant.
    We had a secret rendez vous.

    My natal has juno R on 9 degrees capricorn exact on his natal mc. His natal juno 24 capricorn 10th house.

    He was an ex of 21 years ago..
    How synchronic is are all those facts.
    My south node R beeing 16 degrees capricorn in the 3rd house.

    They are all nice offers of this sugar daddy but is he really that sweet or is there karma at play?

    Ive always been a type you cant keep it real, then no deal.
    Although im not such a business woman (yet) they were my dreams but investigating it all im doubting to take the risk.


      • No no marriage..
        The relationship is already bad for a few years..
        No growth, no challenge, daily grind..
        Plus capricornus depression uh


        • Sometimes the “no growth, no challenge, daily grind” is the challenge. How we experience the world outside of us is reflective of the structure inside of us, if we want to make changes on the outside, the system inside needs to experience a change. With Saturn and Pluto transiting Capricorn the focus is on personal responsibility, owning the part we play in our experience of reality. Since they both transit slowly, they give us time to step back and take a long look at how the inner workings affect the outer.


          • True, im beeing confronted here with the same things..
            A guy who’s 40 and wants what i already have, family life..
            The business thing, well i started a few things but never pushed through..

            Too many options.
            And to combine it all with family life was always a challenge for me. Now the kids are older i have more freedom.. now a man walks in wants to have a baby too..
            And invest his money in a business..
            All i see is work now πŸ€ͺ
            Contracts, deals, administration, rules, etc


            • It sounds like what you want is to focus on the work/business/career part of your life. Having a financial investor can be great as long as they are on the same page as you and you both agree on the terms of your contract.

              This man wants more than a business relationship with you, his financial investment and business contract includes a personal and intimate relationship, with children as interest on his investment. That’s not what you want. So the decision should be clear.


    • What you choose to share in the way of thought is up to you πŸ™‚

      If my posts ever confuse you, there’s a trick to understanding them. I am always talking to myself through my writing. So the question – what do you think? – was directed at myself.

  2. My version of the image is the person himself set the fire to burn whatever he meant to burn and wait to see what’s left of it… Or perhaps if a Phoenix would arise from it…

    Couple years back I wrote a short poem “And in his vision all things burn, in a fire that even the Scrolls can’t transpire”

    Another thing which caught my attention was the human with arms wide stretched, reminded me of an image saved quite awhile ago in my phone, just the human no fire though.

    Hmm… A prompt for my next post πŸ˜‰


    • Ah! What you said here – “the person himself set the fire to burn whatever he meant to burn and wait to see what’s left of it” – coincides with something I wrote for this image but then deleted. I wrote three posts using this image as inspiration. The first two I deleted (thus they were burned) when I got to a point halfway through writing where I thought – Nope, this isn’t it. And this post is what was left πŸ˜‰

      That’s a powerful poem, very evocative. There are many ways to read it. Love it!

      • Thank you πŸ™‚

        Hm, I’m kinda slow these days… While writing my new post which I took the prompt from here, I began to think ‘Capercon’ is probably not just a deliberate misspelled of Capricorn.

        ‘Caper’ + ‘con’ – I pinned down to a playful movement or escapade, but ‘con’ can mean a few things… Perhaps you would enlighten me here? πŸ˜‰

        Your posts are as fascinating because they are more than one way to read them too. Which is why sometimes for some your posts I enjoyed taking a second read or more, even for the long ones πŸ™‚


        • Thank you very much πŸ™‚

          “Capercon” came from a search term in the search term stats of my blog. I just liked the word. I’m guessing it was a typo. When I type ‘Capricorn’, I often end up writing ‘Capricron’ πŸ˜‰


  3. Fantastic image! The Viking who is enraptured by sunset. πŸ™‚ I am looking forward to the return of light – the days are getting longer but they’re still really short and it’s very cold. The painting IS raw, but that makes it real.


    • We’ve had a very mild Winter in the part of the UK where I live, although there is talk of another Beast from the East because it’s been so mild. I saw you posted a photograph, yay, I’m going to check your post out in a minute πŸ˜€

      • Beast from the East? Scary name! Evokes the idea of digging storm cellars πŸ˜‰ .
        Thanks. πŸ™‚ It’s similar to at least one other photograph I’ve published, but it’s the colours that I find interesting. They look different to me somehow. Is sharp a colour? πŸ™‚


        • Sharp could definitely be a colour πŸ™‚ It’s a gorgeous shot! I was about to comment on your post, but got called away from the computer, heading over to your blog place to do that now.

          Yeah, there was a whole article last year when we had the Beast from the East all about how storms have to be given dramatic names in the news. It was a very dramatic storm though, with snow drifts reaching up to and over the roofs of single story houses, ambulance teams trekking on foot across snow plains to reach their patients, and tractors coming to the rescue of stranded motorists. Basically it was an ordinary Canadian Winter for a part of the world which isn’t used to it.

          • It’s really hard to deal with that type of storm when your experience is so limited and the right tools for dealing with it aren’t available. There probably aren’t too many muscular snowplows and sand trucks in UK. πŸ˜‰

            One time, I missed a flight from Frankfurt to NY because the tiniest amount of snow had fallen (over here we would have called it a trace). I had tons of time to make the airport but all the drivers were so scared that people were just crawling along in a sort of panic. My taxi driver was almost losing it. I hope nothing happened to him.
