Capricorn (♑) is the tenth astrological sign in the Zodiac, originating from the
constellation of Capricornus. It spans the Zodiac between the 270th and 299th
degree of celestial longitude. In astrology, Capricorn is considered an introvert
sign,[1] an earth sign, and one of the four cardinal signs. Capricorn is ruled by the
planet Saturn. In the Tropical zodiac, the Sun transits this area of the zodiac from
December 22 to January 20 each year. In Sidereal astrology, the sun currently
transits the constellation of Capricorn from January 15 - February 14
(approximately).



Capricorn Mythology

The constellation is usually depicted as a goat with a fish's tail. One myth says that
when the goat-god Pan was attacked by the monster Typhon, he dove into the
Nile; the parts above the water remained a goat, but those under the water
transformed into a fish.

Capricorn is sometimes depicted as a sea-goat, and sometimes as a terrestrial
goat. The reasons for this are unknown, but the image of a sea-goat goes back at
least to Babylonian times. Furthermore, the Sumerian god Enki's symbols included
a goat and a fish, which later combined into a single beast, the goat Capricorn,
recognized as the Zodiacal constellation Capricornus.
Early 1800 rendition of Capricornus as a sea-goat.

"The symbol of the goat rising from the body of a fish represents with greatest
propriety the mountainous buildings of Babylon rising out of its low and marshy
situation; the two horns of the goat being emblematic of the two towns, Nineveh
and Babylon, the former built on the Tigris, the latter on the Euphrates; but both
subjected to one sovereignty."

On the other hand, the constellation of Capricornus is sometimes identified as
Amalthea, the goat that suckled the infant Zeus after his mother Rhea saved him
from being devoured by his father Cronos (in Greek mythology). The goat's
broken horn was transformed into the cornucopia or horn of plenty. Some ancient
sources claim that this derives from the sun "taking nourishment" while in the
constellation, in preparation for its climb back northward. As such, it is a symbol of
sovereignty.

The Capricorn Constellation in the Zodiac! The Capricorn Constellation
The Constellation Capricorn

Capricornus (or Capricorn) is usually translated as "The Sea Goat" or "The Goat-
Fish", although the name literally means horned goat. The constellation is ancient,
and was one of the earliest members of the zodiac, perhaps transferred to the
heavens from far older earthly concerns.
Horned animals...were worshipped icons in the prehistoric Near East, as seen on
pottery as far back as 5500 BC. Often these animals appeared with pictorial
representations of the 'Tree of Life' and lunar or astral symbols. That is, for
thousands of years— as attested by both pottery and cylinder seals— this horned
animal played a central part in some mythology which involved the heavens....

The constellation Capricorn represents the tenth Zodiac sign. According to Greek
mythology, Capricorn is portrayed as a fish-tailed goat, Amaltheia, who nursed the
baby Zeus who was in hiding from his evil father Cronos. Zeus became lord of the
Gods and took one of Capricorn’s horns which came to be known as cornucopia,
the horn of plenty. The horn was said to abound with whatever fortune its owner
desired. Amalthia was rewarded with a place in the heavens by Zeus.
