The Wise old winter

The sign of the goat

In astrology, Capricorn is considered an earth sign, introvert sign,[2] a power sign[3] and one of the four cardinal signs. Capricorn is said to be ruled by the planet Saturn.

The mountain goat part of the symbol depicts ambition, resolute, intelligence, curiosity, but also steadiness, and ability to thrive in inhospitable environments while the fish represents passion, spirituality, intuition, and connection with the soul

as Capricorn take place around January. Its numerology for January is 1, and certain astrology experts chose Capricorn to be the starting sign than Aries hence the month and year which meant Capricorn is associated with the construction career, in a reference to Janus. Who was the one named for January and is associated with things that can open like doors.

Capricorn is the caricature of the wise old sage, it is ruled by the planet Saturn. In mythology, Saturn (known to the Greeks as Kronus) was the nasty, ruthless father of the 12 Olympian gods.

In astrology, Saturn’s lighter face is the archetypal energy of the “Wise Old Man” (and/or “Wise Old Woman”) The “Wise Old Man” earned his wisdom and insight the hard way. The “Wise Old Man” gains wisdom through all the varied experiences and trials encountered through the living of a long life. As the “Wise Old Man” (and/or “Wise Old Woman”) of the Zodiac, Capricorn helps you define yourself through what’s called the process of limitation. (or maybe better said - the process of elimination). It’s a hard, cold fact of life that we often best define “who we are” by first determining “who we are not….”

What really makes Capricorn energy happy is being able to shape (i.e. organize) the world around them for their own sense of comfort and safety. Capricorn is usually willing to work long and hard to reach its goals. Capricorn energy is persistent and willing to wait for just the right opportunity.

Capricorn represents the climb to the top of the mountain, the attainment of goals, and ultimate success. That explains its association with things like big business, authority, bosses, financial success, and worldly power. This underlying drive behind Capricorn makes it the most goal-oriented sign in the zodiac.

The Winter Solstice on December 21st also marks the first day of Capricorn
