Capricorn in the Forest

According to the Chinese zodiac, you are a “Tree.”

In Western astrology, you are a Capricorn.

You may give off the impression that you are mature for your age. Whether at school or work, you display the necessary skills to progress forward quickly. You’re incredibly talented and intelligent. You find rules and regulations reassuring and enjoy spending time with older people. Often, you act as if you know a great deal. However, bear in mind that the real world and people, in general, are more profound than you think.

After reading this description, you may think, “That doesn’t sound like me at all!” Perhaps you view yourself as carefree when it comes to following rules. Or, you insist that you desire happiness and freedom, and you don’t care what others think of you. This denial reveals the second half of your nature, which leads to self-destruction. On the one hand, you’re comfortable following the guidelines. But, on the other hand, you hate that you’re so obedient. This duality is a critical aspect of your destiny.

If you’ve studied astrology, you know that Western astrology classifies you as a Capricorn (or, to be more precise, your sun sign is Capricorn). The characteristics of a Capricorn are obedient, respectful, apprehensive, and serious. The Four Pillars of Destiny in Chinese astrology indicate that your sign is the Chinese character “Tree,” also known as the Chinese character “甲.” This sign represents the will to grow straight toward a goal. Once you set your sights on a plan, your destiny moves towards it without looking aside.

While Western astrology and the Four Pillars of Destiny are two different types of divination, they are alike in one way. The laws of the Eastern and Western worlds each determine the fate residing at the moment of your birth. Thus, you can interpret your destiny from both standpoints. Viewing these two interpretations side by side gives a more comprehensive view, showing how they complement each other to provide a three-dimensional understanding of astrology.
