Capricorn: Pragmatic Capricorn’s always have this pinched look on their faces, like maybe they’re smellin’ last week’s bait. Open up a Cappy’s tackle box, and you’ll find organized lures, hooks arranged by size, flies in neat rows — it’s so tidy — it’s disgusting. Cappy’s all have perverse sense of humor, Cap being ruled by Saturn and all. Watch it, these are the guys who will pull the drain plug on the boat, “Just joking,” they say, as you start swimming. Can’t fish very well, but bless their Capricorn hearts, they keep tryin’.
Grocery store: Food shopping with a Capricorn is an experience that’s unlike any other sign the zodiac. There’s a utilitarian side to the event to begin with, but then, like any good Capricorn, there is also a certain flair that is required. It’s like mixing and matching both super cheap generic brand groceries with special, name – brand extra deluxe goodies. To an outside observer, that would be a non–Capricorn, the rhythm and the reason for what is name brand and what is cheap would not make sense, period. But to the Capricorn, there are certain items where the name brand can actually affect the flavor, and this shows up in their shopping cart. The Capricorn is not always an expert, but it’s always best to let them lead the way.
Shopping at midnight: It was long after midnight before you can catch a Capricorn in this kind of a store. Except that the price is a deal, and that always appeals to the more pecuniary side of Capricorn. Don’t get the wrong idea, because a Cap has a sharp eye for a good deal. In other words, hang with the Cap on this excursion, and you might be surprised what you can find him buying. The sartorial splendor that Capricorn can be widely known for, the underpinnings of that outfit might just start some place with a less than regal nature. Of course, in order to make the Capricorn happiest, it has to be a deal and it has to look good.
Brick wall: When a Capricorn is faced with an obstacle, a brick wall in his path, there is only one answer, one solution to getting through this wall, and that would be worry. It’s not like all Capricorn’s have a propensity for worry, but the thought of an immovable object in front of them worries them to begin with, and then, under the close Capricorn scrutiny, that brick wall will eventually succumb to the fevered and furrowed brow of the Cap. This ability to worry is inherent, and in some circles, this worry feature is attributed to Saturn. Whether it’s really Saturn’s fault, or some other quirk in the sky, the way a Cap deals with problems is worrying about it until they arrive at a solution.
Bait: Muskie Lure, the Chub Sucker — Despite the name, the Chub Sucker is a stalwart and dependable attraction for a Capricorn fishie. Its design comes from a long line of ancient lures, and it is very popular in vintage fishing tackle collections. The true beauty of this timely design is the new fangled edition of super – conducting noisemaker spoon bill. It’s that little flair of excitement that is added to a time-proven lure. Classic lines with a modern update. That’s what will always hook a Cap.
Body part: Knees.
