What does Sun in Capricorn mean?
It means that the aggressive, warmhearted, dominant, brilliant, royal, authoritative, self-centered, charismatic fire planet Sun combined with cold, emotionless, serious, ambitious, persistent, hard-working, introverted, focused, patient, cardinal earth sign Capricorn.
This is considered a difficult or negative position for the Sun as sharing an inimical relationship with Saturn, ruler of Capricorn.
As a result, negative results out of Capricorn traits arise, such as ruthlessness, selfishness, cruelty, pessimism, distrust, etc.
Saturn also becomes the guiding planet of the Sun in this sign that is governed by Saturn. Hence, if Saturn is in good dignity and well-paced, it can mitigate the negative results from this combination to some extent and ensure positive outcomes.
With that being said, Saturn is able to cancel or neutralize the enmity with Sun, if it (Saturn) is placed in the 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 10th, 11th, and 12th sign from Sun.
Sun in this sign is in 6th from its own sign Leo which is considered a difficult disposition because the 6th is one of the malefic houses and is called a Dusthana Bhava. This house indicates service, challenges, enemies, trouble, quarrels, litigation, as well as endurance, persistence, teamwork, gains from service, etc.
By default, negative significances out of the 6th house are extracted because of the undignified Sun. It indicates a lot of hurdles and negative karma that have to be compensated through the hard way before reaping the results of this combination.
However, if Saturn is strong, well placed, or cancels the enmity with Sun, it is capable of lifting the native to great heights in life through unshakable discipline.

Results of Sun in Capricorn
Hard-Working & Persistent
People with this combination are extremely hard working and determined, but greedy and selfish as per sidereal Vedic astrology.
This is because of the influences of the great planet of the discipline, which is Saturn – the ruler of the Capricorn zodiac sign.
Moreover, the zodiac sign Capricorn is the 10th zodiac sign while this combination forms the 6th disposition. Hence, this positioning of the Sun makes the native very disciplined regarding main activities in life.
Accordingly, people with this combination are extremely strong-minded, focused, persistent, and determined in order to reach their goals.
On the other hand, because of the affliction of the Sun, they struggle hard before getting the results and prestige they desire.
When considering the fact that Capricorn is a cardinal earth sign, it makes them very efficient in initiating new things and projects with extreme devotion, earth-like stability, and persistence.
If Saturn is ill-placed and misguides the effort of the Sun in this sign, it indicates a very cruel, cold, and selfish person who uses their power immorally to achieve selfish goals and ambitions.
It also makes them struggle hard because of receiving tons of disapproval and opposition (6th disposition) from authority figures and society because of their cruel and selfish nature caused by the undignified Sun which is further misguided by its weakly positioned depositor planet Saturn.
This character also applies to their main activities. Accordingly, they attempt to obtain their authority and position in society through base or immoral ways.
However, if Saturn, the planet of universal karma and cosmic judge, is in good dignity it guides the energies of Capricorn Sun in ethical ways effectively.
As a result, the native becomes extremely persistent, determined, and hard-working with a sense of righteousness which enables them to reach great heights in life.
They are also very dutiful and take their responsibilities and service very seriously.
These brilliant traits also make them respected by authority figures and society for justice-respecting nature despite their strict character.
Stubborn & Determined
The combination of Sun in Capricorn in a birth chart gives a rigid personality to the native. It is because Capricorn is a sign of Earth, which is considered inflexible (stubborn), fixed, and steady.
The firmness, however, bestows them a lot of persistence which helps them to achieve their desired goals. These traits are provided by a well-placed Saturn. They are extremely hard-working people due to the influence of strong Saturn.
Saturn is a slow-moving planet that makes us face many obstacles and work hard for success. The success the considered planet offers is long-lasting because everything that involves much effort will last long.
Many times this type of delay is confused with unnecessary obstacles but Sun in Capricorn natives understand this blessing in disguise and continue chasing their dreams with a high level of determination.
Again, for good results, the ruler of Capricorn which is Saturn must be in good dignity and well placed in the natal birth chart.
Avoid Being Selfish & Greedy
Classical book Saravali states that Capricorn Sun natives are greedy, selfish, and thus, will (attempt) prosper by performing base or immoral deeds.
The astrological explanation for that is hidden behind the 10th zodiac sign Capricorn, which signifies main activities, duties, profession, and karma as per Vedic astrology.
As mentioned previously, selfishness arises due to the undignified Sun forming the 10th sign of power, authority, and social status.
Moreover, the 6th disposition negatively signifies envy, jealousy, which motivates the performance of base acts and ruthlessly using others as stepping stones for personal success.
However, if Saturn, the guide of the Sun is well placed, it mitigates these negative results and removes selfishness from the equation.
In this situation, they remain still thirsty for social status but attain it through fair means as a dignified justice-loving Saturn, which is the ultimate judge, guides the Sun out of trouble.
Quarrelsome & Critical
Sun, the planet of the soul is in 6th from its own sign Leo which indicates that people with this combination are very quarrelsome.
They are inclined to criticize others and wildly try finding faults in others to compromise their weakened self-awareness, which is a direct result of undignified Sun forming a difficult 6th disposition.
Moreover, they are fond of initiating various kinds of disputes and quarrels with others. The motive for that is caused either by jealousy or an attempt to lower the self-esteem of others in order to rise above them artificially.
The same trait in them also attracts a ton of opposition through enmity from society because sooner or later, karma strikes hard.
In order to avoid negative effects from taking place, these natives must acknowledge their deep wounds and avoid bringing others down because of it. They must acknowledge that we heal by helping others, not by bringing them down.
However, if Saturn, the depositor of Sun in this sign is in good dignity and well placed, it indicates that they initiate quarrels for good reasons in order to fix issues and filter out any negative links in the system.
With that being said, they possess a positively very critical, and accurate mentality which in combination with their discipline makes them very strong, competent, and efficient in day-to-day life.
As this combination carries the energies of the 10th zodiac sign, it makes these natives extremely ambitious from deep within, as Sun rules over the soul of the native.
The 10th sign Capricorn also signifies high achievements and social status which makes these people harness their vital energy of the soul to obtain these matters.
Hence, they are willing to put in a lot of effort in order to achieve great heights and become respected by society.
However, due to the affliction and difficult 6th disposition to Sun being in inimical sign, they often remain undervalued by authorities and members of their immediate society.
As a result, they may not achieve the heights they always aspire unless they let go of selfishness that mitigates the negative influence of this combination.
For great achievements and great rewards, karma should be good, which means that Saturn should be strong and in good dignity in the natal birth chart which also saves the undignified Sun from committing base acts that decrease their positive karma.
Tendency To Cause Adversity
The 6th disposition formed by Capricorn Sun in 6th from its own sign also signifies adversity, challenges, and obstacles.
An undignified Sun influencing the 6th disposition shows that they are also fond of creating adversities and obstacles in an attempt to hinder progress or success for others.
As both Sun and Capricorn signify leadership and authority, these natives become very authoritative and desirous of positions where they can express it well.
The only issue is that the damage to the dignity of Sun in Capricorn can sometimes inspire them to take unethical ways to assert themselves and prove their abilities.
The weakened Sun causes deep insecurities and confidence issues which may cause them to think that they should one way or another establish their name and authority on others.
Yes, they are great team leaders and guides but to the moment when they feel that someone is performing better than them.
This is where their insecurities start to haunt them and urge them to take unethical steps by creating various obstacles to the ones they are jealous of.
However, this should be avoided at any cost because it can damage their souls and bereave them of the success they aspire so much.
They should acknowledge that the ones they train, uplift, and rise, will uphold themselves as long as they maintain respect and dignity.
Classics also mention that such natives are interested in immoral sensual pleasures with bad partners. This can be explained with the Bhavat Bhavam connection with the 10th (natural Capricorn home) and 7th houses of Vedic astrology.
The tenth house from the 10th house is the 7th house of partnerships and also sensual pleasures. With Sun being afflicted in the 10th zodiac sign Capricorn, it gives inherent interest in illicit physical relations with corrupt partners.
However, if Saturn cancels the enmity with Sun, it mitigates this effect and indicates a pure person from the soul which eliminates the above-mentioned negative results.
Lack Of Mental Peace
Sun in Capricorn gives a direct aspect upon the 4th astrological sign of Cancer. The 4th sign of Cancer is related to the home environment, peace of mind, and parenting. Herein the afflicted Sun in Capricorn indicates troubles regarding these mentioned matters.
As a result, such native lacks parental happiness because of frequent quarrels with relatives caused by overly stubborn and selfish nature of Capricorn Sun natives as per Vedic astrology.
This further leads to a situation where the domestic environment becomes stressful and difficult, at times. They feel a constant lack of peace of mind in specific periods of life which is also mentioned in classical texts.
Dutiful & Disciplined
Capricorn is the 10th zodiac sign in Vedic astrology and is related to the highest point in the sky which reflects the highest peaks in the life of the native depending on the overall horoscope. By default, an undignified Sun makes a person irresponsible yet hard-working.
However, when Sun combines with the energies of Capricorn while Saturn is strong and dignified, it results in a very disciplined, dutiful, and responsible personality.
They also possess the great talent of management which makes them proficient team managers (6th disposition for teamwork) or organizers. Their great organizational skills are provided by the 6th disposition that Sun causes from its own sign.
The 6th is the house of discipline and positively confers great organizational abilities that are helpful in service-related activities and jobs.
The level of achievements and fruits of good karma depends on the placement of Saturn in the birth chart. If Saturn is well placed and unafflicted in a chart while Sun is in Capricorn, it indicates great fruits from the pious deeds of previous lives. This includes the blessing of acquiring high authority and social status during the current lifetime.
Negatively, when Saturn, the guide of Sun, is in bad dignity or even fallen (debilitated) indicates that a person with this combination is prone to commit bad deeds.
As Sun signifies authority, it indicates bad karma due to cheating and betrayal that was done in past lives. They tried to obtain their status and dignity through clever but unrighteous ways which cause hindrances in the current life path.
They can be involved in bad companies who follow an immoral lifestyle or even commit unethical acts as the 6th disposition suggests. These people can be selfish and disrespect others because of jealousy. They can be addicted to bad things and are motivated by their selfish interests.
The deity, which relates to Capricorn, is named Bhaga, who is the provider of prosperity and represents devotion to righteousness.
This also indicates the primary goal of Sun in Capricorn natives – to earn in a righteous way and enjoy fruits of good karma.
