We say goodbye to jovial Sagittarius and its planet Jupiter to find Saturn which rules Capricorn. The winter season marks the spotlight on the tenth sign of the zodiac, so it’s time to learn more about this sea goat. Let’s explore what it means to be born between December 22 and January 19, while also discovering the perfect gift inspired by this symbol.
Capricorn comes just after Sagittarius and before the sign of Aquarius. The sign of Capricorn is an Earth sign, cardinal mode. There is one cardinal sign per season, Capricorn represents winter. A so-called “cardinal” sign is a personality that initiates, makes decisions and likes change. The Earth element represents stability, perseverance, patience and reliability Capricorn.
Saturn is his dominant planet. This austere and disciplined star offers him all its rigor. His appearance is often sober and discreet, and although he doesn’t make waves, he exudes an aura of seriousness and determination that commands respect. A Capricorn likes to think, build and deepen, so it is natural that he is associated with the Earth element. His personality is rather reserved and pragmatic, but also ambitious and determined.
The constellation Capricorn is located between Aquarius and Sagittarius; Astronomy enthusiasts can spot it by drawing a line between Ursa Major and Vega. This constellation has been known since the Babylonians, at least 3000 BC: it is among the oldest, if not the oldest, known among those of the Zodiac.
The symbol of Capricorn in astrology is indeed a mixture of goat and fish tail. This representation has its roots in Greek mythology, with possible links to two legends. According to one of them, the god Pan transformed himself into a goat to flee a monster, then diving into the water. In the other, the goat Amalthea, nurse of Zeus, was placed among the stars by Zeus himself, thus creating the constellation Capricorn. These mythological stories add a symbolic dimension to the astrological sign of Capricorn.
True to its earthy character and its horns, Capricorn is a solid, even a little stubborn, sign. It needs concreteness, organization, benchmarks. He can go very far thanks to his great qualities of perseverance and his ability to coordinate and structure projects. Rather shy and solitary by nature, the native of Capricorn is rarely the center of parties: his true friendships are rather rare, but they have a lot of value in his eyes and he will keep them all his life. His serious side can sometimes be a little surprising at the start of a romantic relationship, but if you can break the ice with him, he will then fully invest in his relationship.
Capricorn is considered by many to be the most serious zodiac sign. It is true that natives of this sign are often conscientious people who invest themselves totally in their activities, whether professionally or personally. However, this hardworking side can sometimes make you seem ambitious and lacking in empathy.
Born between December 22 and January 19, Capricorn often adopts a defensive and skeptical attitude. Prudent, defiant, patient and tenacious, he imposes a sort of lucid distancing from others. Stoic, with a great power of concentration and a formidable spirit of synthesis, with him it is reason that takes precedence. He doesn’t give up easily. Just like his symbol, the goat, Capricorn can be judged as stubborn, headstrong but it is thanks to this tenacity that he is capable of reaching the highest peaks. His seriousness and independence ensure that he succeeds in everything he does. Capricorn natives appreciate the values that order life such as family or traditions.
At last, some famous personalities born under the sign of Capricorn: Simone de Beauvoir, Michelle Obama, Carla Bruni, Vanessa Paradis, Kate Middleton, Kate Moss, Jude Law and Omar Sy.
