My fraternal twin brother was born at 3:43pm. Even with three minutes, it was enough to push some planets into different houses.
Rising Sign is in 28 Degrees Gemini
Extremely active by nature, you like to get around, meet people and do different things. Very restless, you just can't seem to stay put. You need to be involved in several projects at once in order to keep your mind stimulated. You like to read books and to write letters and to talk -- constantly. Seemingly ageless, you will always appear to be much younger than you really are. Very adaptable and inquisitive, you are always open to new ideas and experiences. A "jack-of-all-trades", you are lively and versatile. Because of the high nervous tension that you always seem to have, athletic activity would be a good way for you to burn off energy. But be careful of a tendency to experience things only superficially -- try to dig in and absorb things at a deeper level.
This is very accurate description of me. Except the talking part. At least on a phone. Although if I'm comfortable with someone, I can be quite talkative.
Sun is in 18 Degrees Capricorn.
Extremely serious and mature, you are capable of accepting responsibilities and do so willingly. Others expect you to be dutiful as a matter of course. You tend to get angry when people get rewards after not having worked anywhere near as hard as you. You are goal-oriented and an achiever by nature -- you're a hard worker and are justifiably proud of the tangible results of your efforts. You tend to have "tunnel-vision" -- this allows you to block out extraneous matters that might distract others and to concentrate totally on the matter at hand. As such, you are the ideal one to manage or administrate any ongoing project and to be practical and efficient at it. You are not a fast worker, but you are quite thorough. You are known for being totally persistent, tenacious and tireless in reaching your goals.
The tunnel vision thing is true. Although this whole section is thrown off by me being rather lazy.
Moon is in 13 Degrees Taurus.
Warmth, comfort, security and familiar surroundings are necessary for you to feel at ease. Very loving and affectionate, you prefer a steady, patterned way of life. Patient, calm and steadfast, you are not easily upset. Others look to you for support. You tend to be a slow starter and a slow mover -- others may try to rush you, but they will never succeed. Emotionally, you are quite stubborn -- your attitudes about people and things were firmly set in your youth and will change very little as an adult. You are also very cautious and conservative about spending money. It is not that you are selfish, you just need to feel secure. Beware of a tendency to become overly complacent and too self-satisfied.
This is fairly accurate. Although it's taken me a long time to get more conservative about spending money. I like to think that others look to me for support.
Mercury is in 25 Degrees Capricorn.
You are a careful thinker, very cautious and conservative. You are quite skillful at organizing, directing and planning activities. Practical and useful things interest you -- you are not attracted to abstract thoughts or ideas. With your tendency to be highly focused and very goal-oriented, you have a good head for business. But beware of a tendency to be narrow-minded and dogmatic. Your sense of humor tends toward being earthy and slapstick crude.
Except that I'm not that practical and I'm not a careful thinker. Perhaps the Uranus thing is overshadowing this.
Venus is in 09 Degrees Sagittarius.
You are very aware of the need to maintain a high sense of morality in a relationship. Your loyalty and interest will remain constant in any relationship (either friendly, personal or business) that is based on fairness, honesty and justice. But you will become greatly hurt and disappointed if the other person takes any but the high road with you. Also, you cannot tolerate anyone being overly emotionally possessive of you. You are known for your friendly, outspoken manner.
I don't think I ever thought of myself as having a friendly, outspoken manner.
Mars is in 00 Degrees Pisces.
Very sensitive and vulnerable, it is difficult for you to assert yourself. At times, you feel quite tired and you will require a lot of sleep in order to maintain your health and your strength. You are at your best when you act without your ego being important. You can be very unselfish and considerate of the needs of others. You get the most satisfaction by giving to others when you expect nothing in return. Beware of a tendency to want always to work behind the scenes or to become overly deceptive by doing things behind others' backs.
This is very true and is one of the key things holding me back. It can be very hard for me to assert myself. If I'm in charge of something that I know a great deal about, then I can be very assertive and be a dynamic leader. Otherwise, I tend to follow out front. But I can be very unselfish and enjoy that. However this impulse is at war with the Moon in Taurus thing.
Jupiter is in 05 Degrees Virgo.
You feel most expansive and at ease with yourself when you are doing something that you consider to be practical or useful. You enjoy being dutiful and carrying out responsibilities. You gladly take on the little tasks that others seem to want to avoid. At times, you carry things to extremes and feel guilty anytime you do something that you consider to be self-indulgent. While it is appropriate for you to demand little for yourself in life, try to loosen up once in a while -- go out on a fling and enjoy yourself!
Not very accurate at all. This doesn't take into account that Jupiter was in retrograde at my birth, along with Pluto and some others. That throws things off a lot.
Saturn is in 06 Degrees Aries.
You are aloof, independent and standoffish. This is mainly due to your fear that others might inhibit or restrict you and, quite frankly, you feel that you can govern your life by your own standards. Be careful not to associate with those who are overly critical of you or you will withdraw so deeply into your shell that you will become very lonely. You have the ability to stand on your own two feet and to make up your own mind -- albeit very carefully and cautiously. But you are known for your circumspection and therefore are respected and admired.
I can be aloof and standoffish. This is a combination being shy and, secretly, an elitist. Mostly from being shy. Again, like my leadership qualities, I'm shy around new people, but once I get to know you, then I think I'm quite friendly. That's one of the great things I like about LJ. I get to learn a lot about people and they about me, so that when we meet face to face, there is already that rapport established. But I can definitely withdraw from people who are overly critical, which can seem like an attack.
Uranus is in 29 Degrees Virgo.
You, and all your peers, will be known for the degree of intensity with which you dislike normal everyday routines and chores. You will go out of your way to invent innovative, unique and timesaving ways to perform the various mundane routines and duties of living. You will be attracted to all manner of practical and useful gadgets -- anything that will make your daily life more exciting.
This is very accurate. I'm so unconventional that it hurts sometimes. I've never bought a Rider-Waite tarot deck, because everyone was buying them, even though it was probably the best one to get for my needs. I have to remind myself that getting what everyone else is getting isn't always bad.
Neptune is in 25 Degrees Scorpio.
You, and your entire generation, are extremely interested in anything deep and mysterious. You will explore and idealize the benefits that can accrue from the study of the occult, healing and psychology. You are willing to experiment with substances like drugs in order to push your understanding of your inner being to the extreme.
This is very true.
Pluto is in 22 Degrees Virgo.
For your entire generation, this will be a time when profound changes in society's attitude toward work, duty and responsibility will be initiated. Radical changes in attitudes toward personal health and general nutrition will be promulgated and gain wide acceptance and practice.
N. Node is in 24 Degrees Aries.
You're at your most comfortable when involved in group activities outside of your immediate family circle. You delight in getting involved with others in neighborhood civic or political activities, especially if you can be a part of the leadership of the group. Your zeal and overabundant energy bring out your real creativity when you can work toward tangible results -- things that will immediately benefit those around you. You have a real gift for getting the most out of charity drives and community benefits. Take time out between projects though, because you tire out easily and your effectiveness becomes greatly diminished when your energy is depleted. Also, don't even think of trying to get involved at a peripheral level -- you need a total commitment to feel personally fulfilled. Let others bake the cookies and set up the chairs -- you should be the one to tell everyone what to do and when to do it! <

I have noticed a few Capricorn Suns that I know percieve themselves as lazy, when in reality they aren't. Would someone other than yourself describe you as lazy? I also have never met a Capricorn Sun who wasn't a big worry-wart.
The mercury in capricorn I tend to interpret as someone who loses interest in communication that doesn't have a specific purpose or focus. Basically someone who can't deal with "airheads" and prefers meaningful conversation.
This was fun to read and learn more about you.

No, I'm sure others would see me as lazy too. Or rather I'm very full of inertia. If I'm sitting, it's hard to get me to move. If I'm moving, it's hard to get me to stop. I have 6 earth signs, 3 fire, 3 water and 1 air. So, inertia describes it well.
I wouldn't consider myself a worry wart. I think I have too much Gemini influence from my rising sign. I'm a happy go lucky kind of guy for the most part. I would say that the Gemini influence has warped the Capricorn search for power. I'd rather dominate mentally or with magical powers than the typical big business kind. Although being very rich is a goal of mine, which would give me more time to spend with the mental stuff I don't want to be a CEO of a huge corporation with the corner office and the big shiny Lexus.
Your mercury in capricorn interpretation at first glance I would dismiss, but on further thought I think this may be rather accurate. Meaningful conversations are good and I really don't like stupid people. I much prefer to be around smart people, especially if they are smarter than myself. More to learn that way.
I have a friend who is more the typical Capricorn. He has an amazing ability to disect systems to find out how they work and what he needs to do to get what he wants out of it. He can look through all the extraneous parts to see the real core. He's almost unbeatable in strategy board games and always knows how to maximise points when making characters for role playing games. But this has a flaw in that if the extraneous parts are actually important, he will fail. He can miss out in the inherent beauty and grandeur of things, seeing only how the little pieces fit together. One example is that we were playing a horror role playing game that took place around the end of the 19th century. To maximize points he chose a woman character who was a gypsy, to save points by taking a lower social rank. The rest of us wouldn't deal with him because 1. he was just a woman and 2. (forgive my french) the character was a wog. Thus the character was someone to overlook by us white, English, upper crust types who wouldn't want to be seen dealing with that kind of person.
I'm glad you enjoyed reading more about me.
