What Does It Mean To Have Lilith in Capricorn?
A person with Lilith in Capricorn is resilient and steadfast. Lilith, a placement continually striving towards liberation and self-expression, is generally not comfortable in Capricorn, a sign known for its steadiness and reservation.
The combination of these two can cause unique challenges to the native.
Capricorn Lilith can become ruthless and ice-cold in their endeavors to the point of becoming promiscuously ambitious. They tend to be calculating and bitter and may develop an authoritarian personality. Capricorn Liliths can become cold and cynical when they bare their fangs.
At one end of the spectrum, Capricorn Lilith can become too self-reliant, developing distrust in others’ competence as a form of control. The need for control stems from issues regarding authority in childhood.
Ruled by Saturn, you are disciplined and prudent to the point of excess.
Relationships with the family can also be quite strained from childhood for Capricorn Liliths. For instance, your family may have had a family business had you had to take on many responsibilities as a child. In a way, you may have felt you had to parent yourself (and maybe even others) growing up.
When angered, Lilith in Capricorn may resort to blackmail, intimidation, and coercion to protect their reputation. She has power and connections and is not afraid to use them.
Lilith is a strong, independent woman who knows what she wants and has no problem vocalizing her opinions. She rebels against the patriarchy, instead choosing to embrace her own sexuality without apology. She is not afraid to say “no” or stand up for herself when necessary.
As Lilith also represents sexual repression, Capricorn Liliths can be attracted to people much older or younger than them.
Lilith in Capricorn Challenges
Being an Earth and Cardinal sign makes them a great leader able to carry on plans and inspire others.
Black Moon Lilith manifests at the extremes, so having it in Capricorn may either be too focused on their career to the point of tyranny in the workplace or someone who is underemployed or unemployed and generally having a difficult time financially.
Perhaps at a young age, you have felt trampled over, and as an adult, you continually feel the need to take care of yourself and prove your worth.
Capricorn Lilith can also be someone who has difficulty realizing his professional goals, whether literally (inability to move up the professional ladder) or figuratively (i.e., your perfectionist tendencies are insatiable).
Lilith in Capricorn may have been shamed at a young age due to their ambitious pursuits and felt that their hard work was not recognized.
There is intense discomfort in ambivalence for Capricorn Lilith. There must always be structure. You may be your greatest critic, and unlike some Liliths, the struggle of one in Capricorn is quite internal.
You despise glamour and bohemian fun, even though it would probably do you more good than the humdrum life you’ve chosen.
Despite constant hard work, natives of this placement may feel like they have no time for pleasure-seeking, security and prestige are important for you, but at the same time, you may feel as if you shoulder the world’s responsibilities.
How Do I Embrace My Lilith in Capricorn?
Heal your Lilith in Capricorn by learning how to compromise. Capricorn placements tend to have jealous enemies due to their reserved and cold nature.
You possess the ability to hypnotize others with your charm and charisma. This can make you popular and powerful in a career setting.
However, it also comes at a price: the people around you will try to use information from your past against you.
Capricorn Lilith inherently fears failing to meet others’ expectations. They work themselves too hard and can become depressed. They fear being dismissed and invalidated despite their hard work.
The truth is, they are their worst enemy. They’ll do whatever it takes to get ahead in life—including making themselves look good at the expense of everyone else and their own emotional health.
Because your standards are so high, you can impose the same despotic rule on others. Learn that not everyone plays the same game as you and that power isn’t an end in itself.
Loosen your grip on others and learn to be comfortable with some level of vulnerability. It is lonely at the top, after all. You can’t please everyone, and it’s OK to take a break from work once in a while without feeling guilty about it.
Black Moon Lilith is the dark side of your personality that you may feel shame for or those others will judge you for.
However, this placement can also allow you to liberate yourself from the shame or trauma that was holding you back and begin to explore this shadow side. It symbolizes your deepest desires and urges, so it’s important to honor these rather than try and repress them.
With Lilith in Capricorn, it’s a challenge not to become oppressive towards others, especially yourself. Your ambition is your greatest asset, but sometimes the methods you employ to get there may make others uncomfortable.
Because your public image is naturally important to you, you may set impossible standards and ironically set yourself up for failure. Be careful of being a slave to the quest for power. Likewise, even the ocean cannot fill a bottomless cup.
Lilith is free and unrestrictive. Access your Capricorn in Lilith by looking inwards. Material and financial pursuits can only take you so far.
