As you can see, Swift's natal chart takes on a see-saw shape, with most planets grouped directly opposite one another.

According to Kathryn Hocking, a renowned Business Astrologer, AstroBrand Strategist, Creator of the Business Astrology Oracle Deck & the founder of the Business Astrology Certification, "Someone with this chart shape may tend to seesaw with their life following a pattern of two distinctly contrasting alternatives." She explains that those with this chart organization "may find it difficult to integrate these two sharply different parts of your life, which are often in competition with each other." We may see this effect come into play with the competition between Swift's private and public lives.

Since they are very innately responsible, they sometimes want to run away from their responsibilities and get more in touch with their spontaneous side. Since Saturn in Capricorn people are very responsible, they can easily get annoyed or angered if they have too much on their plate.

They are also perfectionists who put a lot of pressure on themselves, so if they are scared to follow through in a situation that could even be advantageous for them, they will quit.

This stirred up a lot of controversies, and lead to some drama where it became apparent that Taylor Swift's friends weren't always 100 percent on her side.


At the end of the day, Neptune is optimistic, and Taylor Swift has proven herself to be also. She usually has big goals and dreams but their aspirations have to be practical for them to follow through. Neptune in Capricorn people have to genuinely enjoy what they are doing for them to continue doing it.
