Progressed Ascendant in Capricorn
This will bring a more ambitious and withal diplomatic attitude of mind, and if progressive enough to respond to this new vibration the native will gain advancement in life and rise to a higher position than that held at birth.
He will become much more industrious and persevering and with endurance and tact may now make great headway; though it too often happens that those under this progressed ascendant have not the inherent ability to take full advantage of its influence.
To the very progressive it is a grand opportunity to gain recognition and to obtain a footing which will make the whole of the future; for it means eventually independence and position to those who have the ability to rise through their own merit.
To the advanced, it brings a love of service to others; to the ordinary individual, industry, thrift, economy, prudence and chastity. It will benefit the native according to the directions operating, but it is an influence that only the progressive can truly appreciate.
Progressed Ascendant in 1st Decanate of Capricorn
If the progressed ascendant is in the first decanate of Capricorn (0 degrees to 9 degrees and 59 minutes), the general interpretation above applies.
Progressed Ascendant in 2nd Decanate of Capricorn
If the progressed ascendant is in the second decanate of Capricorn (10 degrees to 19 degrees and 59 minutes), the general interpretation for Progressed Ascendant in Capricorn applies, as well as this:
This will bring some acquisitiveness into the desire-nature, and it will cause the native to acquire wealth according to this ability to make the most of the directions operating. He will now become more persistent and plodding, working on toward the desired goal quietly and cautiously, yet with determination.
He will have a fixed ambition to rise and to make progress, and should therefore gain many financial advantages. To whose who are advanced it will give increased intuition, both regarding material and spiritual things; but it is chiefly an influence that brings about a very practical and “common-sense” attitude with regard to all things.
It is a very good progressed ascendant for those who are naturally thrifty and painstaking, but is apt to be somewhat indifferent to the ordinary person. By those who would progress with this new influence the “sterner virtues” should be studied and practised.
The greatest success will come to those who can live purely, and also to those who are not so obstinate as to stand in their own light; for firmness and determination are obtained under the influence of this decanate.
Progressed Ascendant in 3rd Decanate of Capricorn
If the progressed ascendant is in the third decanate of Capricorn (20 degrees to 29 degrees and 59 minutes), the general interpretation for Progressed Ascendant in Capricorn applies, as well as this:
This will make the native very practical and adaptable in his ambitions, causing the latter, however, to be tempered by a discriminative and critical frame of mind. He will be in danger, consequently, of being somewhat selfish under this progressed ascendant, and should therefore be careful not to allow his activities to carry him to extremes.
A great deal will depend upon the directions in force as to how this influence will operate; it will in any case assist him in arranging his affairs so that by a wise and careful judgement he may see clearly the best course of action in any difficulty.
It is a decidedly favourable influence for those who are naturally tactful and painstaking, but there will be a tendency for the health to fail if there is too much worry or anxiety while this progressed ascendant operates. It will cause the native to be very practical and to use common-sense methods in all his actions; he will not, however, meet with all the success he may desire, for it is not a very “lucky” period, being a time for sowing rather than for reaping.
