What the Divine Is Doing With You as a Complete Individual.
WHAT IS THE DIVINE DOING? Making you a more specific, more clearly specialized individual. It is the HOUR of your birth that determines what your Rising Sign is, and thus your Outer Personality.
What are the HOUSES? There are 12 houses. Imagine 12 aspects of life -- Home Health, Travel, Career, Hopes, et al. I won't list all 12 here.
Imagine a CIRCUS WHEEL. On a given day the planets are in their position in one of the12 spots. When you are born, at that moment, the Circus Wheel STOPS and your OUTER PERSONALITY is given to you, at that same time, with the peculiar aspects of that sign.
THERE! RIGHT THEN IN THAT MOMENT, TAKE A SELFIE IN YOUR MIND'S EYE! Your specific Outer Personality is crafted to work hand in hand with your Inner/Ego.
Where is the Rising Sign at the Circus Wheel? As a baby, you don't know the HOUR of your birth. Mom herself (generally they know) or A Doctor or a Dad or a relative standing by, has to tell you later in your life, or it is deduced by you as you read these articles for comparison.
The Rising Sign has to be determined. At the 1st House, you "mathematically" turn the Circus Wheel, and the placing of that Rising Sign determines WHAT HOUSE receives the energy, significance, (aspects) of that placement.
So, you see how your individuality AND your chart gets determined by your Rising Sign. The Rising Sign turns the wheel to place the (Mars in Leo, for example in your 10th or 8th house, or which ever). So the Rising Sign determines the House Placement of each planet.
In doing interpretations for people I have always used this TWO LENSES approach. Think of the Sun and Rising as your INNER and OUTER, your PRIVATE and PUBLIC self.
Capricorn’s Strong Ego May find itself Being Challenged By The Differing Inclinations of Its Taurus Rising Sign.
Capricorn is EARTH and CARDINAL. The Saturn-dominated Capricorn really takes the word "dominant" to Heart. Capricorn will enjoy basking in success and enjoying the nice things that it has purchased, to show off its success. But, remaining with its core essence (EARTH and CARDINAL). You are “solid”, but you are also ACTION based in your daily approach. But now with your Taurus Rising, which is EARTH and FIXED, you are getting a dose of the languid, peaceful, sensible Taurus. That Bull, lumbering and pondering, might give you a style that is quite pleasing and personable. You have probably noticed in your life that your Taurus Rising has helped you in your social milieu that you hadn’t really noticed as being “a softer and more charming” Capricorn.
The reason for this series of articles is to cause people to think about the Rising Sign as The Outer Personality that they wake up with as they greet their PUBLIC DAY. When people don’t know they tend to make generalities about their sun sign. This is why people argue about the nature of Sun Signs. Thousands of arguments are really about Rising Signs. “Well me and my husband are both Capricorns and we are somewhat alike, but not much!” Or “Virgos are different from each other!”
Capricorn loves the dynamics of success and will tend to go right on to the next project, and the next project.
Capricorn will hope to build their savings, while Taurus Rising may might want to spend the savings on vacation or be at upper class restaurants. Knowing your outer personality will “groove” on the fun, your inner ego has to tilt its head and wonder how its Inner and Outer Self will work together..
If both of yourselves have moderated their tempers and kept up "mutual respect", then they could work out the the apparent conflicts that might arise; but both should realize that getting along in this internal activity could mean that "counterbalancing" was in order.
How Capricorn Can Stay True to Itself, and Still Allow It’s Taurus Rising Outer Personality to Make “Cap” more Effective.
Capricorn should always be aware, if they truly appreciated and loved Taurus Rising, that "keeping up the balance" would be a career goal. If it makes it onto that list, then Capricorn will be OK. If not, then Capricorn's tendency toward smugness and self-satisfaction could trip it up. Taurus' (FIXED) nature of constant ease and sense of comfort and languid manner, could destabilize things. This is when "living with your total reality" would become important.
How You as a Capricorn Can Idealize the Combination with your Taurus Outer Self.
You could say that Capricorn is more self-important, grim and subdued. You can say that Taurus is more at ease with itself. But remember both sides - Capricorn is Earth and Cardinal, and Taurus is Earth and Fixed.
This is a time when the Cap can take natural benefit from its "cozier" way. (a natural inheritance from its Taurus nature.) But then there may be times when Cap is slowed, when it wants to shift up to a higher gear.
Let's be honest, both of you know how to work hard. Both of you kind of understand when to "be quiet". Both of you are intrinsically civilized. The Capricorn can cut people off and act superior. The Taurus can just "not listen" or give a grunt for an answer. As one might think, there are times when the Sun and Rising GROOVE on each other too much! Times when a mate or a partner, subordinate or child may want your attention or time.
Capricorn is not going to mess up or be foolhardy as time goes by, because, face it, you have been bequeathed with the friendly Taurus' pleasant smile and quiet diplomacy. This friendly duality will be one of your blessings or curses depending on how fully in control you are, at the wheel, as you course through the storms and waves of your journeys.
Ways You Could Go
Capricorn will probably let all kinds of possibilities into your head, but that's because you tend to always ponder "career options." But because your whole life tends to be a career, you won’t be too impulsive, as you carry your mental ambitious load. Your Taurus will be cooperative unless it is pushed to anger. Anger can dwell in the heart of the Capricorn too. Tempers, when hot can run in both Capricorn and Taurus. Loss of temper could be an unfortunate result. This duality could have a "Lord it over" manner that can be pernicious and harmful. Taurus Rising can help alleviate these possibilities. Capricorn and Taurus can be a reasonable partnership.
And so, as you look over your decades, you can see how given the proper consciousness, blending these gifts that you have been given into one cohesive mature individual will lead to greater control.
