This month sees the turn of Capricorn to shine, albeit in a more understated way than perhaps a Leo might shine. This earth sign is known to be quite practical, good in business, steady, and reliable. This month we caught up with 2 Capricorns – to give a polar perspective – to see how they perceive the world, and themselves… Meet Ellie and Dmitrij
Do you ever sleep?
Such a simple question yet such an unexpectedly complicated answer 🤦🏻♀️😂 I actually love to sleep and can do so for many hours, yet I’m not keen on the going to bed part and love to stay up at night which leads me to a much to frequent lack of sleep
I try to sleep for 7-8 hours, otherwise it is difficult to concentrate during the day even with lots of coffee. When concentration is not needed can afford to sleep less.
What needs to happen for your cup to overflow (when you cannot take it anymore)?
One of two things: for me to take on too much for too long – the all so popular “it’s ok, I can do it” attitude – or for me to forget to take care of myself for too long (which some of us find surprisingly easy)
When my boundaries are crossed.
How do u feel about receiving help from others?
Depends, if I actually need it, it makes me feel loved and cared for; but if I don’t, despite appreciating it, I can find it irritating if I feel that the person is overstepping or is underestimating me
Nowadays I am more inclined to ask for help when I really need it.
How do u feel about sharing emotions?
Good when they’re positive. Ok, when I feel safe. Challenged when I feel vulnerable and not very safe
It is OK to share emotions with the people I trust. Difficult with the people I don’t know. And almost impossible with people I don’t trust.
What do you think is people’s biggest misconception about Capricorns?
I’m not sure.. the only recurrent comment I get from people is that they think Capricorns are stubborn.. and so am I, so can’t say much about it 😂
Capricorns are not emotionless robots 🙂
What would you like people to understand about Capricorns?
To never underestimate the depth of their loyalty, their sense of responsibility and determination.
We all have different values, for Capricorns it is persistence.
If you could change the world what would you do?
If I could, I’d change our society. I’d make it less transitional and a lot more in tune with nature
I believe we can change the world but first we need to change ourselves. Emotional regulation is a good starting point 🙂
