Capricorn of Light

According to the Chinese zodiac, you are “Fire.”

In Western astrology, you are a Capricorn.

Perhaps someone has told you that you’re a difficult person to read. Or, someone has called you mysterious or said that it’s difficult to know what you’re thinking. These are not negative comments. They are just seeing one aspect of your personality. In reality, you generally are not lost in thought or pondering something profound. Likely you’re simply doing your best to read the room or get a pulse on the situation at hand.

You find rules and regulations reassuring and enjoy spending time with older people. Additionally, you’re often attracted to people who are older than you. Finally, you desire to please others and feel discouraged when someone dislikes you.

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 for “Fire,” also known as the Chinese character “丁.” Fire is not a powerful light in the same way the sun illuminates the whole world. Instead, fire alludes to something smaller and more intimate. It has a role in warming people in the cold, gathering people together, or serving as a signpost pointing out the path you should take.

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.

Your Capricorn characteristics combined with your essence as a Fire sign describe you as the “Capricorn of Light.” One primary trait that defines you is your social skills.
