Ruling Planet: Saturn
If you know the time you were born then your chart will include your Rising Sign: the person you become when you are out in the world. It is your public face, a mask you wear that protects the real you, until people get to know you better. Some people's rising sign are the same as their sun sign, so what you see is what you get. For some of us, who you see when you first meet us is quite different then who we really are.
My Rising Sign is Capricorn. Out of all the signs, this one, to me, is the least fun. Having my Sun in Leo I just want to dance in and paint and have a good time. My Capricorn says, “No, you need to be serious. You need to work more. More than more. Oh, and by the way, you suck.” Capricorn is all about making money and being responsible, disciplined.
But, thank god I have it. I may not have taken my art or writing seriously or thought to make money from it. My Capricorn won’t let me waste much time doing frivolous things. It also pushes me to be the best I can be at whatever I am doing. I have been told that I work too hard and am too hard on myself since I always strive to be better, but I am not competing with anyone but myself. I have personal standards by which I hold myself to. I constantly want to go further and out do what I did before. But forever climbing higher mountains is not always fun. I need to balance my work with off time and play.
People see my videos online and then when they meet me, expect me to be that person. But with a video camera on me alone in my room, I am more myself alone then when I meet a stranger. Does that make sense? I try to get my Leo to shine, but in a new/public situation, I am more introverted then people realize. I can fake bravado but it stresses me out. After a public event I need to go drink starbucks and hide under the covers. It's not that I am shy, but I get overwhelmed.
My Capricorn also gives me a funny and dark sense of humor. I am able to see what is comical in what is tragic. I use this comedy to combat the horribleness in life and it helps me be less depressed.
In my painting: I used cool colors to represnt winter, the months that the sun is in Capricorn, which is end of december through most of January. My girl looks straight at you and is strong and determined. She doesn’t need you to like her. Her life is her own and she is going to live how she wants to. Becoming something is important to her, and so is making her own way. She will be a leader in her field. Their is nothing a Capricorn girl can't do!
