CAPRICORN - December 22nd - January 19th
Capricorn Zodiac Symbol: The Goat
"To pry for hidden things, to smell out riches hidden in the veins of the earth- these skills will come for you." (Manilius, 1st Century)
The goat symbolizes a surefooted, steady character that will see life's goals as mountain's to climb, and will climb them slowly but surely.
The name Capricorn comes from the Latin words 'Caper' (goat) and Cornu (horn). In ancient times a goat's horn was seen as a sign of royalty, strength, and abundance. Throughout history, horns have generally been depicted as symbols of wisdom too.
Astrological Element: Earth
Those born under an earth sign are grounded and reliable individuals, and much like the earth itself, are known to help create and build things in life. There is a darker side to earth signs however, as they can be materialistic and inconsiderate of others as they aim for their goals.
Star-Stone: Black Onyx
The Black Onyx belongs to the Agate family of stones and is said to have good medical and metaphysical applications. It's said to be useful in the treatment of bone marrow and blood disorders, and also ear problems. This stone is also said to give strength, stamina, and self control with regards to sex.
Capricorns are born with a lot of potential, but are often held back from achieving by their own pessimistic attitude to life.
This is partly down to lack of confidence, and they often under estimate their abilities/achievements.
Just like famous Capricorn Rowan Atkinson, many under this sign will have the gift of humor. Other positive aspects of their character include common sense and patience.
Compatibility With Capricorn:
Capricorns can be one of the hardest zodiac signs to find compatibility with, partly due to the conflicts between loyalty, stoicism, and sometimes jealousy. They tend to be wary until they really get to know someone, and those that do form a bond, must be patient and encouraging. This will help to break down the barriers, and switch on a Capricorns capacity to enjoy life. Capricorns tend to share similar outlooks on life with Leo and Aries, and to a lesser extent will also get on with Gemini and Libra. (an air-fire sign match)
