CAPRICORN ASCENDANT/ MAKAR
Capricorn ascendants are generally social
people since Venus rules
their tenth house. Capricorn's
are conservative, at times selfish and they can
be selective in their approach. They are vigilant
and tactful and can have a compromising
nature in order to achieve leadership. Capricorn
have a pleasant temperament and are emotional
in the matter of partnership.
Capricorn people are hardworking,
persevering and tenacious people and have the potential
for great accomplishments. They often keep themselves
extremely busy and are always on the go.
They tend to take things too seriously
and are often detached from the emotional field.
This detachment can be good, but through
their busy nature, the partner of Capricorn
usually takes a back seat, leading to frustration
or disappointments in the relationship.
As the Sun signifies the soul
and Jupiter signifies morality
and generosity, it is unfortunate
that these planets represent
the functional malefic for Capricorn ascendants.
It is desirable to have as little aspect
as possible from these malefic
planets and to have them well placed and in a favourable
sign. The stress area for Capricorn concerns the
ninth and tenth
houses where the mooltrikona
signs are for Mercury and Venus
respectively. It is because Mercury
is prone to weakness, bringing inconsistency
to the ninth house that signifies good
fortune, spiritual inspiration
and one's soul. Venus
plays a major role in the life of Capricorn because
professional success is dependent on the strength
The mooltrikona sign for Saturn
is Aquarius placed in the second
house for the Capricorn ascendant. If Saturn is strong
and inflicted, then the Capricorn ascendant
will endeavor to acquire assets, pursue a stable
relationship and ensure a good family life. They
will slowly achieve the status
desired as Saturn is lord of the
second house in this chart. If Saturn is weak
and afflicted, then there could be failures
in status and life with an unsuccessful marriage.
There will be constant delays in life, lethargy,
possible cheating and a melancholic nature. Since
Saturn rules the ascendant as well although it is not
the moolatrikona house, a weak Saturn will affect
the body in the area that the ascendant signifies such as
joint pains, weak knees and possible arthritis.
The moolatrikona sign
for Mars is Aries,
placed in the fourth house
and a good and unafflicted
Mars especially in its dasha
periods will activate the acquisition of assets,
good education, alertness and a passionate married life.
There will be happiness from the mother
when Mars is strong. When Mars is weak
and afflicted, then there will be loss
of assets, disturbance in one's education
and general setbacks in life. Arguments
and impatience with the mother will occur.
The mooltrikona sign for Moon
is Cancer, placed in the seventh
house, will ensure the person a happy married
life and wealthy parents-in-law
if the Moon is strong and not afflicted.
A stable relaxed inner state of mind will incur
enabling the person to enjoy even the simple things
of life as the disposition is not under emotional
stress or strain. If the Moon
is weak and afflicted,
then there is upheaval in marital life with loss
of mental peace. There will always be some emotional
disturbance in the relationship and partnership field.
The mooltrikona sign
for the Sun is Leo
placed in the eighth
house. The Sun is a functional malefic
in the Capricorn chart and
owns the most malefic house,
but if it is strong and not aspecting
any other planets or houses at the most effective point,
it will enhance the father's longevity
and one's inheritance. Since the eighth
house signifies one of the houses for marriage,
then it can boost the prospects of a harmonious
marriage. If the Sun is weak,
then there will be troubles to the father and the
person may have a shorter life span and there will be obstacles
and difficulties in life. There will be losses
in speculation. The Sun can afflict any
houses when it is within the five-degree
range of the most
effective point and therefore can bring about obstacles,
illnesses and accidents to the
The mooltrikona sign
for Mercury is Virgo
placed in the ninth
house. If Mercury is strong and unafflicted
especially from the malefic Sun,
then it will strengthen the nervous
system which will in turn strengthen the
person's good fortune, relationship and health of the father.
It will make one less erratic and therefore
stabilize them in their quest for a deeper understanding
of life rather than keeping them busy in mundane issues.
If Mercury is weak and afflicted
and most probably aspected by the malefic Sun
(as eighty per cent of charts are
aspected by the Sun) then there will be a lack
of good fortune, struggles in one's life and much nervous
pressure. The erratic Mercury will constantly
sway the person away from deep connections and
there may be difficulties with the father.
The mooltrikona sign
for Venus is Libra
placed in the tenth house.
When Venus is strong and unafflicted
for the Capricorn ascendant, then the person's career
will be ensured of success. This fact alone makes
the Capricorn a very social person. The
individual will have happiness in a career
and could combine work and social enjoyment together.
In a male chart, the person's
wife could be active in the social and career realm perhaps
mixing the both together. If Venus is weak
and afflicted, then there could be lack
of job satisfaction or a very static career.
There could be losses in business and a
general lack of enthusiasm and happiness.
The wife in a male chart could bring disappointments.
The mooltrikona sign
for Jupiter is Sagittarius
placed in the twelfth
house. As this is a malefic house,
then it is best that there are no aspects
given to other planets or the most effective point by Jupiter
to the other houses. If this is the case and Jupiter
is well placed, then the Capricorn ascendant
will endure fewer losses in life and have happy
sexual liaisons from time to time. Success in foreign
travel and ventures is possible
as well as protected life span. In a female
chart marriage with male with foreign lands would be favourable.
If Jupiter is weak and badly
placed, then there will be losses in ventures
or lack of success and for a female
chart, it can be loss of husband
or disappointment in relationship . There
will be no happy sexual liaisons and could
be problems to one's hips and liver(signification's
of Jupiter). When Jupiter aspects
any other planet or house,
being the functional malefic planet of
the twelfth house, it can bring about
losses in which the planet aspected signifies.
The Moon aspected by Jupiter could signify emotional
loss of some sort.
