Capricorn humor is often overlooked. For one thing they’re pretty discerning about when humor is appropriate. Sometimes their dry wit is dismissed as something else because it’s so keen and neat. Jim Carrey is a Capricorn. While his famous brand of humor is not subtle, he does possess an undercurrent of subtle intelligence and control as well as overblown corn and physical humor. Stalin was a Capricorn.* Nixon was a Capricorn. These are men not known for their wit, but look below the surface and you will find many accounts of their understated humor.
This morning I got a reminder for a party I RSVP’d to. My pal is a Capricorn Sun, Capricorn Mercury with Mars and Saturn in Libra, so just a friendly reminder! As an aside, with her Libra Mars conjunct Pallas Athena in the second house trining an Aquarian Venus in the fifth, she is an mind-blowingly fabulous artist. With that Venus placement you better believe she throws one hell of a party. Jupiter in aspect to the Cappy Sun makes her wit more audacious.
In any case, her note read: “There will be snacks and finger foods. If you do not eat in front of others please by all means eat before you get here. There will be tons of booze and I will be encouraging you to drink it. Please look cute. I will be capturing sweet and precious moments on my camera for all eternity. No excuses. Will also not share your craziness on film with others unless asked to do so, no worries. You are asked to hang at least one ornament on our tree to help make it pretty. Try not to get so bombed I have to babysit your ass… There’s one in every crowd at every party… Will it be you this year? Sincerely LMAO this am, Xxxx Xxxx”
That is Capricorn humor at its best.
*Wikipedia and the Astro databank give his birthdate as earlier, in Sagittarius. Other accounts such as his official biography put his Sun on the Capricorn cusp. If he’s not a zero degree Capricorn I’ll eat my hat… and his.
What is your sense of humor like? Can you peg the astrology?
