Capricorn in Astrology

Capricorn takes its place as the tenth zodiac sign and Capricorn’s astrological symbol is the goat. This is often referred to as the Goat Fish or even the Sea Goat. The connection with water or the sea is seen to come from the legend of the God known as Pan. Pan leapt into the Nile River in order to escape from the clutches of Typhon, a monster in hot pursuit of Pan (Capricorn). The river had magical properties and these changed Pan’s lower, immersed half into a fish. His upper goat half remained unaffected leaving him as half fish, half goat.

Capricorn is one of three Earth signs, along with Taurus and Virgo. In the same way as the signs of Taurus, Cancer, Virgo, Scorpio and Pisces, Capricorn is found to be negative in polarity meaning that Capricorns prefer to look out for their own welfare rather than being reliant on others.

The constellation of Capricorn lies in the skies to the South between Aquarius and Sagittarius.

The constellation of Amalthera is often identified with Capricorn. Almathera is a goat appearing in Greek mythology as Zeus’s nursemaid. Amalthera (portrayed as a goat) has a broken horn in these legends and this broken horn became the famous cornucopia – the horn of great plenty which reflects the abundant nature of Capricorn.
