Due to the amazing response from other Capricorns to my Hub, on Capricorns having a hard time, Life of a Capricorn or Maybe Just Cursed (thanks for taking the trouble to write your comments). I am thinking of setting up a site for Capricorns to tell their stories and interact with other Capricorns. I'm no astrologer but I did do some evening classes in Astrology years ago and I have read a lot on the subject. So I have a feeling it depends where Saturn is on your birth chart, we all have Saturn and the other planets on our birth chart. In other words I think those people who have a prominent Saturn might suffer the same as Capricorns (particularly Capricorns born around Xmas time). So if that's you then the site is for you too. The essence of a Capricorn/Saturn experience is one of frustration, hard work, self-sacrifice, delays, disappointments - a feeling of working very hard and doing the right thing but never seeming to get the rewards in life! Never seeming able to move forward, except spiritually of course because I think Capricorns who have a hard time are more spiritually aware but we don't live in a very spiritual world so it's hard!
What do you think of a site for Capricorns called 'Capricorns Together'? A site to discuss with other Capricorns, interact and share experiences? You can be funny, sad or whatever you want as long as you are nice and respectful of others and their space! I think it's a great idea because in my experience it is often hard for others who don't have the same kind of life to understand what I go through just day to day! People often end up calling me negative because of all the problems I face one after another. But I think this says more about them than me because I see myself as realistic and considering what I go through I think I am one of the most positive people ever! I get out of bed every morning and try, that is positive. I treat people decently, in the way I would like to be treated, that's positive, I do lots of exercise, eat well and look after my body that's positive. I don't swear that's my sort of positivity!
By the way if you haven't already, read the book Saturn - A New Look at an Old Devil by Liz Greene, it's fascinating stuff! This was the book which confirmed my thoughts about Capricorns and their leading planet Saturn and how we have a harder time than others. Let me know when you've read it what you think, its great a real eye opener! Listen to this from the book and I quote '......Saturn seems to correspond with painful circumstances which appear not to be connected with any weakness or flaw on the part of the person himself but which merely "happen",........' This says it all to me, because you would think I would have to be a horrible person, if you judged on the life I have in spite of hard work!
So let me know what you think of the idea and the name, suggest other names too and maybe we can vote for the best name or something!
