The Ascendant and its meaning in Astrology
Discover what it means to have a Capricorn ascendant and read all about your ascendant.
Saturn – ruler of your ascendant – endows you with a particularly impressive skill: you can see the philosophical dimensions of things while you also desire to act alone.
Reality has many sides for you and you feel the need to try and experience it in its every aspect – and in the way that you wish not in the way others have told you to, so that the responsibility and consequences are all yours.
The influence of Saturn gives you a melancholy air, which often affects the way you think. You base your ideas for a better order of things on the respect that everyone should have for each other, so that mutual support can succeed. You are a sociable person but, deep down, want everyone to adopt your views and act in accordance with your ideas.
Your inherent cautiousness, in combination with your preference for being alone and to not say much, gives those around you the impression that they do not interest you at all or that you are a snob – and this is not true at all. You have a great aptitude to focusing on your goals and this is why, over the years, you will enjoy the fruit of your labours.
Your skill in putting your ideas to use and guiding people is remarkable. You are much more satisfied when you have the opportunity to lead a situation or a group of people, especially when you are fully responsible for carrying out and achieving difficult goals.
Strength for you means that you can reach your goals. You are not interested in how people judge your skills, since your biggest critic is yourself. There are two sides to every coin, however, and, deep down, you are a very sensitive person. You care about how other people judge your principles. You don’t like to break rules and so people think you are strict.
You are direct, condemn betrayal and deceit of every kind and are considered unbending and conservative. You distance yourself forever from those who undermine your trust. You have a sense of humour but don’t open up in strange environments and don’t express your feelings easily. Only in a familiar environment can you relax and show your true self.

If your star sign is:
Aries with Capricorn ascendant
This combination makes you very serious, patient and focused on achieving your goals. You are determined to make a superhuman effort and sacrifice in order to reach the position that you deserve. You fall deeply in love, are always faithful to your partner and will thus create a good family of your own.
Taurus with Capricorn ascendant
You have the virtues of patience and persistence. You are ambitious and have goals but you are not flexible and prefer to take slow but sure steps rather than rushing things, thus delaying your success somewhat. Even so, you never waver in your path and usually make progress.
Gemini with Capricorn ascendant
There are two conflicting personalities inside of you: one loves adventure and games, the other is careful and cautious. You often prefer silence, even when you want to communicate with others. You have the genuine introspectiveness of the Gemini and the seriousness of the Capricorn, a combination that makes you a very philosophical person.
