Zodiac (n. an imaginary belt of the heavens, entering on the ecliptic within which are the apparent paths of the sun, moon and principal planets. It is divided into 12 constellations and signs of the zodiac).
Just for the sheer fun of it and something different to do I thought perhaps I could do a series of 12 posts each dealing with a different birth sign so here goes. As I am a Capricorn and as January begins our year it seemed appropriate the begin with the goat. My two grandsons, Luke and James (both born in late December, are also Capricorians and yet we are all different from each other.
Capricorn is the tenth astrological sign in the Zodiac, originating from the constellation of Capriconicus. It spans the 270-300th degree of the zodiac, between 270 and 305.25 degree of celestial longitude. In astrology Capricon is considered an introvert sign, an earth sign, and one of four cardinal signs. It is ruled by the planet Saturn. In the Tropical zodiac, the Sun transits this are of the zodiac from 22 December to 20 January each year.
Capricorn is the mover and the pusher of the zodiac, the 'cardinal' Earth sign, who likes to be in control of situations and to make their mark on the world. The Earth element means they are a sensate type, driven by practical goals, material ambitions and physical concerns.
Capricorn seeks security and stability and has a natural respect for social institutions, like the family and government organisations. It they want to change something they seek to work from the inside to create change. They are most happy when they have a meaningful role, have autonomy and can engineer slow progress. Their key phrase: " I build".
Saturn is your planetary ruler. The power and determination to bring your goals to fruition are the way your Earth is expressed. Ancient Arabic astrology says Capricorn is "of cold and dry nature (earthly). Its angel holds the keys of day and night." You are the 'night sign' of Saturn and the parts of the body Capricon rules are knees, bones. joints, skin and cutaneous system. Maintaining mental and physical flexibility if your key to good health.
Ruled by Saturn, your strengths are patience, responsibility, realism and a persevering attitude that brings eventual success. Strong ambition and the desire to build a safe, secure home are further Saturn gifts. Saturn represents the primal force of contraction the energy that holds things togethre. His special message for Capricorn is to build the foundations well before expecting the golden return.
This information came from "Astrology Spot" as will future posts. I am not sure if you as a Capricorn feel this describes you and I am not sure it describes me very well. I have never sought material goods so that is not me but I do respect families but can't say I have that much respect for government organisations!! Slow progress sounds rather like me, especially these days so I'll have to accept the above as being reasonably accurate if not completely true for me.
Incidentally, I never read my horoscope at all so perhaps I am not a true believer but do find it very interesting.
