Uranus in Capricorn Personality

The marriage of Capricorn, the rule maker, and Uranus, the rule breaker, is a strange one. Not unlike Uranus in Taurus, Uranus in Capricorn doesn't take well to changes to their status quo. But given that Capricorn is a more reasonable sign, there's much less stubbornness here, and eventually, Uranus in Capricorn accepts the inevitability of change and will contribute to it, albeit at a moderate pace.

In true Uranian fashion, Capricorn Uranus looks at society and imagines what it could be. However, the Saturnian essence of Capricorn reminds them that change requires work and time. Those with this placement feel that they must first understand the system in order to dismantle it. So, they formulate their master plan and little by little do their part to make the world a better place.

Whatever innovations they dream up—yes, Capricorn placements do sleep from time to time—will undoubtedly outlast the natives themselves. Fortunately, Uranus sweeps away that classic Saturnian doubt and self-loathing, so Capricorn Uranus hesitates less than their solar and lunar counterparts, for example, reducing the time between the creation and implementation of their ideas.

Negative Traits

Eccentricity meets practicality and takes it on a wild ride with Uranus in Capricorn. With such a freedom-loving planet being introduced to the sign of the Sea-goat, Saturn's child has an opportunity to take a walk on the wild—or at least mild—side and a little breathing room. However, even Uranus' shockwaves can't peel the realism from Capricorn's character.

So, while Uranus Capricorn is down for the cause, they are also cognizant of the limits of idealism. This Uranian cohort was sent to balance destruction with construction and lead society into the brave new world at an even pace.
