Capricorn is ruled by Saturn, the serious planet and taskmaster.  Here we have the most responsible sign of the zodiac.  There is a tremendous drive to succeed in the world through their chosen profession, climbing the social ladder, material gain.  It’s as though Capricorns are born as little adults and get younger as they age.  Don’t be fooled, it’s not all seriousness, Capricorns are gifted with a wonderful, quirky sense of humor and unique creativity.

The symbol for Capricorn is the Goat and the written symbol or glyph for Capricorn comes from a V shape for the goat’s beard and the curved tail of a fish ♑ from the ancient symbol for Capricorn, the Sea-Goat.  It can also be seen as a symbol for the knee and kneecap, which is the part of the body ruled by Capricorn.

Capricorns, like their goat symbol have an enormous drive for scaling greater and greater heights, overcoming insurmountable obstacles.  They have a goal in mind and systematically work at it until they reach their destination, literally moving mountains to get there.

Our Capricorn friends are of the Element Earth (practicality) and as with all signs starting at the Solstices and Equinoxes they are a Cardinal sign (leader, initiator).  Work wise this translates into areas that are solid, stable, practical and have a solid potential for growth.  Capricorns are suited for careers where they can counsel and guide others, they have a vast storehouse of experience and knowledge to share with others.

Capricorns are practical, steadfast, purposeful and ambitious.  Like their opposite sign Cancer there is a need for security.  This manifests in Capricorn through material gain and a drive to succeed in worldly matters.  While the  Cancer sign seeks to bring security to home life, Capricorn looks to the larger world to build a structure that better serves the whole.

Capricorn rules the knees, skin, bones and joints.  As a ruler of the knees this gives Capricorns the opportunity to choose flexibility and humility over rigidity.

Thank you to our dear Capricorns.  These are friends and family members who are loyal, cherish and protect those whom they love and are known to hang in there even when the going gets tough.  Capricorn friends listen to our problems and help us with their advice.  Let us return the favor to help them in their time of need.
