Once again we are talking about Fire & Earth. This time Mutable & Cardinal. This has the potential for being a paranoid personality with an excruciating
headache. Capricorn’s cardinal Earth can be insufferably embarrassed by the independent free wheeling of the Sag mutable fire while Sag feels imprisoned by the restrictions felt by Cap limitations which attempts to keep everything well under control and respectable. “Foot in mouth disease” is intolerable to Cap and at least uncomfortable to Sag when there was no intention to hurt anyone. Didn’t they want to hear the truth? When this happens it is embarrassing to both signs.
Bad enough that Sag has to deal with such slips but much worse with Cap moralizing. It is much more difficult for this uncivilized and insensitive
happy-go-lucky spirit to be comfortable when teamed with this formal, status quo, please-the-public taskmaster on guard. It is equally difficult for Cap to stand the embarrassment that Sag on its own could brush off. If someone is offended there are always more people to party with. Not that Sag isn’t sorry and even willing to apologize if it doesn’t also have to have its nose rubbed in it. If this Siamese conflict is going on in one individual it will be up to that individual to find a way for the fun loving, happy-go-lucky Sag to be civilized without being too imprisoned. The Cap influence will be a lot more sociable and fun also if they learn to take a joke less seriously. Cap can have the ability to diplomatically smooth ruffled feathers and if the embarrassment can be controlled, less will be lost to worry about. Success, fame and honor are possible rewards for smoothing out this conflicting tendency. Each of you have the ability and the obligation only to yourself to find a comfortable balance you can live happily with. It is possible.
