Capricorn Is Ruled by Saturn
This is the true, original analysis of astrology as pertains to Capricorn by Professor Fredrick White as written in “A Guide to Astrology”, published in 1901-1904. In other words, here is your information from the source; without the 100+ years of modern interpretation and commercial modifications by others.
This 100+ year-old manuscript has been cleaned up and somewhat paraphrased for an easier Third Millennium read. However, as promised, an image of the original, unaltered manuscript is also included. Ctrl+/- will adjust the size. For historical perspective and additional nuances, it is worth the read.
Information for this article was compiled from United States (U.S.) government archives.
