Capricorn is traditionally ruled by the planet Saturn. Physically it is related to the knees, and to a certain extent the joints, skin and bones. It is said to have a feminine nature, and is therefore more reactive in its energy expression. As a Cardinal sign Capricorn is goal-oriented, and channels energy into strategic planning to attain long-term results. As an Earth sign, goals tend to be practical and related to material interests.

Planets in Capricorn will express themselves in a determined and serious manner, striving for honor and some kind of recognition in society. There is a desire and ability to reach the top through hard work and perseverance. Status and executive power are important - as is social position.

There can be a certain formality and lack of spontaneity with planets in this sign, due to setbacks at early stages of the life. There is a tendency to control feelings and exert considerable self-discipline, but it would be advantageous if a greater emotional sensitivity and concern for others could be integrated into the nature.
