Capricorn — The Sea-Goat


Courtesy of Wikipedia

The tenth sign of the zodiac

In Hindu astrology: Makarar — and considered by the ancients to be the most important of all the signs. Is it possible the ancients recognized in the Winter Solstice the point of gravitation that controls the Sun’s orbit?

Its symbol represents the figure by which the sign is often pictured — that of the forepart of a goat, with the tail of a fish — vaguely suggesting the mermaid. Sometimes also by the sea-goat, or dolphin.

The Sun is in Capricorn annually from December 22 to January 20. Astrologically and astronomically it is the first thirty degrees following the Winter Solstice, marked by the passing of the Sun over the Tropic of Capricorn and occupying a position along the Ecliptic from 270° to 300°.

It is the Leading (Cardinal) quality of the Earth element: negative, nocturnal, cold, dry, obeying.

Ruler: Saturn.

Exaltation: Mars.

Detriment: Moon.

Fall: Jupiter.
