The Ultimate Connection!
Capricorn begins on the Winter Solstice, in the Northern Hemisphere, December 21st and extends until later January usually between the 18th and 20th. The Winter Solstice is also the shortest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere. As I stated in earlier pages, the beginnings and end of Astrological signs are mathematical calculations based on the actual movement of planet Earth around the Sun. The beginning moment of an Astrological Sign's change each year but there are similar starting points in 4 year cycles.
EXACTLY 30 degrees of arc in a 360 degree circle around EARTH is the standard that defines all the Astrological Signs [30 degrees X 12 signs] and the ZODIAC.... EACH !!, Astrology Sign is an absolute measure of distance, 30 degrees 0 minutes 0 seconds of arc out of 360 total. That, only, sets the boundaries of the Signs not a certain number of days. AND. There is no such thing as a cusp when it comes to SUN SIGNS. That's why some people born on April 21st are ARIES and some are TAURUS, also that's why some folks born on June 22nd are GEMINI and some people born on September 23rd are still VIRGO'S.
At Sunrise, each year on the first day of Capricorn, 0 degrees of Capricorn is on the Eastern horizon. For Greenwich Mean Time, by definition, that makes a person born at that time have an Capricorn Ascendant of 0 degrees. Every Astrology Sign spends exactly 30 degrees of arc, approximately 2 hours on the Ascendant each day because the Earth rotates through the entire Zodiac each day. 2 hours [120 minutes] divided by 30 degrees equals 1 degree every 4 minutes or 1/4 degree each minute. Time, a living entity, is continually moving in the forward direction as the Earth spins within the Zodiac.
On the last day of Capricorn each year 30 degrees of Capricorn is on the Eastern horizon making people born soon after that moment a Aquarius with a Aquarius Ascendant.
Each morning of Capricorn an additional degree of the sign is on the Eastern horizon at Sunrise and Capricorn sunrises are around 7:00 AM each day.
By knowing the approximate time of sunrise, using the 2 hour per sign rule and adding 1 degree each day; it is possible to realistically approximate a persons Ascendant.
EXAMPLES: (1) Born on Christmas day, Dec 25th, at 2:24 AM; 4 degrees Capricorn would be on the Ascendant at sunrise. Remember; Add for an Ascendant after sunrise, Subtract if before sunrise. Subtract 2.24 from 7. giving you a difference of 4.36 hr's. 4 hours=60 degrees of arc + 36 minutes=6 degrees; totaling 66 degrees. Subtract 66 from 4 degrees of Capricorn which equals 28 degrees of Libra on the Ascendant.... (2) Born on January 15 2:22 PM. 24 degrees of Capricorn is on the Ascendant at sunrise. 2:22 is 7:22 hours after sunrise. 7 hours = 105 degrees + 22 minutes = 5 1/2 degrees, total = 110 1/2 degrees. 24 of Capricorn + 110 1/2 = 14 degrees Taurus on the Ascendant.
[If a little confused about the examples, please read all 12 of the Interactive Horoscopes to better understand the concept presented here.]
You can now look to one of the 12 options below for an accurate personality profile. Some may have to look at more than one caricature because you can't accurately calculate an ascendant or you don't know your birth time. Very, Very rarely is a persons birth TIME accurate, unless the mother or father happens to study Astrology.It is a good idea to check the sign on either side of your calculated Ascendant or Moon to see which fits the best.
If you've had your horoscope done you can look up the exact information there. That chart will also give your Moon Sign. the Moon sign can also be gotten from an Ephemeris [book of planetary tables]
These dissertations apply generally to the Astrology combinations listed. For absolutely accurate interpretations a full horoscope is required but these should give an general indication the individuals personality unless an all powerful aspect dominates the native, i.e. Uranus square Mars which is conjunct the node of Mars.
