So, goats…Capricorn is another earth sign. They are the half goat half fish, or you could see it as a sea goat. Capricorn marks the Winter solstice on December 21st. Their time period is December 21st to January 20th. They are the cardinal earth sign that sits on the top of the mountian…or chart in astrology. This sign’s home is the 10th house or midheaven that rules social status, image, career, represents the father, destiny, success, and ambition. Capricorn is ruled by Saturn and is the Feminine aspect of Saturn- the masculine would be Aquarius. When we talk about Capricorn, we should speak of Pricus the original sea-goat, and Cronos to father of time.
Pricus was a creation of Cronos and, for the short story, Tried to revert time to change is children’s destiny because he had the ability over time like Cronos does. But saw it as futile, no matter what he was the only one not affected time while his children were. They reverted to infants and always went to the shore changing from sea-goat to mountain goats incapable of speech or understanding. Because he lost his children to their destiny, he asked Cronos to be killed. Instead, he became the Constellation Capricorn. Cronos, on the other hand, is about the cycle of life the future and destiny. The God overthrew his father, gained power through this then tried to stop a prophecy of his children overthrowing him. Alas, he could not stop his destiny nor his children’s. Cronos was usurped by Zeus.
Anyways, Cronos governs time, repping what you sow. What does this have to do with Capricorn? Capricorn is ambitions- Just like Cronos and Saturn ( the Roman equivalent). They are on the same mode as Aries, so their ambition is about survival. Most of the time Capricorn has to mature extremely fast. Usually, they will experience great amounts of responsibility either of others or just hard knock life. This sign like Scorpio gets served a heavy dose of karma. Though, Capricorn can handle it. They can handle pretty much anything. These mountain goats just don’t stop. They are not emotion…wait let me take that back. They are emotional. Buttttt, most of the time the emotions have been beaten into submission but their cast iron will. These people will make it no matter what.
The good life for Capricorn will happen when they honor the rules of life and stability going after what they want with a practical plan. At the start of their life, the sea-goat may be spendthrift. Though, when this happens life will throw them the worst curveball ever. They will learn to not be reckless with material and financial matters. Being a cardinal earth sign Capricorn will take the initiative to manage and grow their money. Most of the time they will rely on traditional means so wealth building. For example, for years people have saved their wealth in banks. Though, it is not the best thing to do when inflation is 3%, and bank interest rates are 0.01% but who’s to tell a Capricorn what to do? Aries rules the 4th house for Cap meaning they can be hot heads when it boils down to it. The home life could have been a battlefield, or they would have to become the leader of the household. On the one on one romance, they want a relationship where they can emotionally connect with someone else. A relationship where they can feel nurtured and safe.
Capricorn may end up with a partner who is moody and requires a lot of emotional care. Most of the time their other half has strong moon influences in the chart. Noooww, the tenth house is where they shine!! This is the house that gives more in-depth info on Capricorn. They are all about status and image. It may be a tough road up that hill, but you will never know by looking at them. Having Libra here ruled by Venus shows that Capricorns are usually GORGEOUS. They will use their looks to their advantage and most likely marry up. They have a knack for refined art and beauty. Career-wise, Cap can be a lawyer or judge, art dealer or construction worker, architect, commodities broker, or divorce attorney, et cetera.
So, I wrote way too much on Capricorn. But I still have more to say about this sign. It would have to wait for Capricorn 2.0.
The phrase for Capricorn is I use.
