Sun in Capricorn – Sun in the Devil’s Clothing

Sun in Capricorn, or the Sun Dressed in the Devil's Clothing

The Sun as the Devil

From a Tarot perspective, this transit would be like the Sun child is dressed as the Devil. He’s gotten hairy and has gone underground.

In his element, the Sun is joyous exuberance unfettered by boundaries. He’s made it beyond the wall and is victorious after a long dark journey.

Everything is open now, there’s nothing to hide. He bares it all and asks us to do the same.

The Sun’s lesson is to celebrate and to laugh. Each morning is new and each day another chance to enjoy and live fully.

The Devil has a very different energy about him. He’s dark and somber, some might even say scary.

He’s an obsessive type, engaged fully in the material world. He’s physicality at its most profound, holding issues of spirit at arm’s length.

The Devil likes control and boundaries, and doesn’t trust the light in anyone’s hand but his own. He promises to get things done, but he has to be the one in charge.

The Sun has fun everywhere he goes, even the Devil’s lair. He lightens it up a bit, and gets everyone smiling.

The Sun in Capricorn, or the Sun dressed in the Devil’s clothing, is a good time to look at areas in your life that feel restrictive, whether from the outside, or from within.

If you feel chained, unchain yourself. But if you like your chains, then just enjoy. Be aware though that you’re the one to choose.

Serious play, or structured freedom is also highlighted during this transit. And that makes sense with the holidays.

You might not be working at your regular job, but you’re not completely free either.

There’s an obligation to celebrate, whether you want to or not. And since that’s the case, you might as well dive in and enjoy this time for all it’s worth.

Work hard and play hard, but try not to take any of it too seriously.
