Weirdly Wise Capricorns ~ Quotable Goats

With the Sun in Capricorn, here are a few words from some well known goats....I'm not surprised to see a good number of eccentric and controversial figures among them, but then as a Capricorn myself, I never like to miss an opportunity to overturn the image of Capricorn as traditional and rule bound! Enjoy! Oh and the quotes also reflect their Moon sign...

This American system of ours, call it Americanism, call it capitalism, call it what you will, gives each and every one of us a great opportunity if we only seize it with both hands and make the most of it.

People need motivation to do anything. I don't think human beings learn anything without desperation.
Jim Carrey, Actor/Comedian, Sun Capricorn, Moon Gemini

Audiences like their blues singers to be miserable.
Janis Joplin, Singer, Sun Capricorn, Moon Cancer
Other Capricorns with Moon in Cancer: Mary Tyler Moore; Michael Schumacher, Robert Duvall; Kate Middleton

I think it all comes back to being very selfish as an artist. I mean, I really do just write and record what interests me and I do approach the stage shows in much the same way.

The way I see it, if you want the rainbow, you gotta put up with the rain.

I think men are afraid to be with a successful woman, because we are terribly strong, we know what we want and we are not fragile enough.

I stopped living according to my core values. I knew what I was doing was wrong but thought only about myself and thought I could get away with whatever I wanted to.

Over the years, I was never really driven to become a solo artist, but I was curious to find out who I was as an individual creative person. It's taken some time, but now I feel I've truly paid my dues. I guess I'm at a point now where I'm more comfortable in my own skin.
Annie Lennox, Singer, Sun Capricorn, Moon Capricorn
Other Capricorns with Moon in Capricorn: Tracey Ullman; A. A. Milne

The young always have the same problem - how to rebel and conform at the same time. They have now solved this by defying their parents and copying one another.

I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.

Other Capricorns with Moon in Pisces: Elvis Presley; Benjamin Franklin; J R R Tolkien; Michael Stipe; Simone de Beauvoir

With love,


  1. Love your title, Mandi, and it's a delightful collection.

  2. Thanks Donna, you've got to love those Capricorns!

  3. It’s no secret that a man’s ego has a powerful pull on him.

    In fact this hardwired need to impress and to WIN is so deeply embedded into the male mind...

    That nearly everything a man truly desires is based around this biological “drive” to prove, succeed and to win.

    It’s why so many men become workaholics, gym junkies or become obsessed with their hobbies.

    But what most women don’t know... how deeply this “drive” is connected to his love, desire, and attraction for the woman in his life.

    And I’m about to show you how you can “tap into” a man’s ege to refocus that same drive and gut level obsession...

    ...on pleasing you, romancing you, and proving his love for you like you’re his sole purpose in life.

    Here’s how: ==> The “Go Ahead” Signal That Makes Him Obsessed With Winning Your Love

    Mr Gix

    P.S. When you tap into a man’s ego this way, you can cause him to literally become obsessed with proving his love for you. So please don’t use this on a man unless you are ready for something serious.

    Thanks again.
