The earth Zodiac sign Capricorn is in its active phase, controlled by Jupiter, Mars and the Sun. The Sun is in this constellation from the 21st of December until the 19th of January. Capricorn belongs to the Trigon of Earth, and it is a female passive sign. The people of this sign may be powerful and reputable, but it is only demonstrated in the world outside. Capricorns are rather egoistic and discreet, being like in a rigid cocoon, separated with its shell from the world. They are patient, insisting, and they are able to move towards the goal formulated, regardless the others’ opinion on the matter.

Although their inner nature is amazing, they are not quick to disclose it. They often need some stimulus to act. They are weak and they are worried, until they discover their own Spiritual Energy to implement what was conceived. After that, they are capable of great good. Those people are sensitive and nervous. According to the Secret Knowledge of Initiates, the upcoming Epoch of Aquarius shall become the period of the intellectual Renaissance of the Human Civilization, accompanied by global and disastrous changes on Earth and in Space, which shall result in the sixth human race emerging on Earth, the race that shall possess supreme Spirituality and the Cosmic Mind.

The water Zodiac sign Pieces is in its active phase, controlled by Saturn, Jupiter and Mars. The Sun is in this constellation from the 19th of February until the 20th of March. Pieces belong to the Trigon of Water and it is a passive female sign. Those born beneath this sign are reliable business partners even in complicated situations. They are modest, and they hold their talents within, having at the same time the taste for intellectual caprices and madness, insisting they are misunderstood. They can be caring and tender, but too much worried, impatient beyond any norm, and unforgiving. They use to live double life, their main risk is that they give their will to others being full of sympathy to them, whereas those others demolish their lives, bringing only sadness and disappointment. According the ancient Sumerian myths, the North Fish was named the “Grand Martlet”, while the West Fish was named the “Empress of Heaven”. The antique myths associate the constellation of Pieces with Aphrodite and Eros, who were turned into fish by Zeus to hide them from Typhon, a monstrous giant.
