This combination resembles footprints in the sand: visible until the tide washes the beach clean. Strong intuition in business matters, even real genius, is qualified by possible miserliness and a penchant for fuzzy-headed schemes (the motives of which are always mixed). A barrage of leveraged buy-outs has sent the corporate world into a dither, and there is generally an attraction to conspiring against institution, fraudulently if necessary. There is heightened perception of opportunity, and the wherewithal to take advantage of it. Neptune always has a strong Pisces side, regardless what sign it is in, and connotes integration of the life function, a translation of consciousness from what is possible to what is real. Pisces is also the sign of boundaries. All too easily, with Neptune in Capricorn, you lose yourself in pursuit of opportunity. There is a nagging warning not to sell out or bargain with alien needs. You evince a subtle martyrdom to mass prerogatives. Too easily you may be tempted by peers to veer from your course. Neptune in Capricorn warns against a lack of self determination which challenges all people embarked on the quest of self-knowledge. Be careful you don’t end up with agendas and priorities you don’t understand, much less can’t execute. Regularly assess the nature of your needs. To what extent have you taken on dependencies or distasteful customs, having let your convictions be manipulated by the forces of “a foolish consistency”? Do not confuse usefulness with bondage or enslavement.
Neptune in Capricorn is characteristically revealed in drugs, both trafficking and addiction, small and large scale. Being out of touch with the Self fuels a need to anesthetize pain. You compare yourself to others: athletes who think they cannot compete without steroids, teachers who loath learning because they cannot admit any capacity for error. There is a battle of learning versus suppression. Consider the People’s insurrections against repressive government throughout the world in 1989, most successfully in Europe, harrowingly in China and Tiananmen Square, dramatically in Romania with the execution of Nicolai Ceausescu. And consider the flip side of Neptune in Capricorn relative to these events: entrepreneurs buying up the tumbled Berlin Wall and selling it as souvenirs at $10/pound in retail stores (complete with certificate of departure). There were face offs between the ruthless: pragmatism and ambition of narrow-visioned political entities and every individual’s genuine need and right for freedom. The Chinese students became Neptune in Capricorn martyrs by throwing themselves at a cause with such conviction and passion.
Ask yourself if there are any people whom you permit rulership, anyone who justifies atrocities with a pretense of inalienability – for world events occur in microcosmic form within individuals. Neptune in Capricorn supports the survival of the clever and ambitious, and where it might seem that compassion would mitigate such Darwinian mechanics, beware how quickly kindness is diffused by the paralyzing loneliness which results from seeking salvation in otherness.

You are part of a 14 year group of people who are conservative and traditional in spiritual aspirations and religious outlook. Your age group returns to some traditional basics in religion, and also traditional styles in music and art. Classical music and literature have a revival with your age group, and a great deal of inspiration is gained from the masters of arts, music, literature, and philosophy throughout history. Your age group is contemplative and reflective about religious matters and you take an objective and logical approach to religious issues. Many of you are cynics and critics of spiritual and metaphysical ideas.
Other age groups criticize your group for not having enough heart and compassion. Sometimes this is true and is evidenced by some unusually crafty and manipulative fraud and deception that occurs in the higher ranks of governments and large businesses.
