A drive-by birthday celebration for an octogenarian Capricorn

It was a bright, sunny January 7th, 2021 in Southampton – almost Spring-like and just in time for a drive-by birthday celebration for a Capricorn.

                                                           John Cherrie celebrates in style

John Cherrie stood at the end of his driveway and sipped his ‘apple juice’ as his many friends and colleagues took the opportunity to drive by and wish him a happy birthday, with many handing him cards safely from their vehicles.

                                                                      A long line of well-wishers

John, an insurance industry specialist, is also a member of several organizations in Saugeen Shores and all were well-represented as they drove by with horns blaring.

Looking at a Capricorn

Those born under this sign are generally pragmatic, ambitious, and disciplined, although they can also be somewhat stoic and pessimistic. They are associated with Earth, Saturn, and the colour brown. When most people think of Capricorns, they think of words such as “diligent,” “success,” and “practical.

Capricorns look at everything as a task to be completed, making them an incredibly independent, hardworking type. They can accomplish whatever they set their minds to, regardless of the energy it requires, so long as they have a clear goal and a path for getting there.

The diligent, meticulous, highly organized Capricorn shines in matters of business and work, ideal if you’re in the insurance industry. Being success-driven, Capricorns do well in almost any type of job, so long as it affords them stability and the opportunity to succeed professionally (read: make a lot of money).

On the good side, Capricorn is hardworking, ambitious, and responsible. Meanwhile, on the bad side, the Capricorn sign is pessimistic, work-obsessed, and stubborn. This trait is by far one of the best things about Capricorns – they never give up!

Capricorns have the tendency to push themselves way too hard, often to the point of exhaustion. This obsession with success and perfection means Capricorns won’t stop for anything⁠—not even some rest and relaxation … unless it’s for a birthday!

  Rule of thumb – you don’t want to butt heads with a Capricorn!
