About Capricorn Horoscopes
Capricorn is the tenth astrological sign in the Zodiac, originating from the constellation of Capricornus. In Western Astrology, this sign is no longer aligned with the constellation as a result of the precession of the equinoxes. In astrology, Capricorn is considered a "feminine", negative sign and can bring negative Capricorn horoscopes. It is also considered an earth sign and is one of four cardinal signs. Capricorn is ruled by the planet Saturn. Being the tenth sign of the zodiac, Capricorn has been associated with the astrological 10th house. The corresponding month in the Babylonian calendar is Arax Ṭebêtum, dedicated to Pap-sukkal, the messenger of the gods. The Indian equivalent of Capricorn is Makara. The Chinese equivalent is thought to be the dependable, methodical Ox, whose lunar month is 6 January - 3 February. Capricorn is widely thought to be compatible with Taurus and Virgo. Therefore, when a Capricorn comes into contact with either of these signs there is love in Capricorn horoscopes.
Individuals born when the Sun was in this sign are considered Capricorn individuals and should read the Capricorn horoscopes. Under the tropical zodiac, the Sun is in Capricorn roughly from December 22 to January 19. Under the sidereal zodiac, it is currently there roughly from January 15 to February 12.
Capricorn is associated with the Greek myth of the goat Amalthea, who provided the infant Zeus with milk, or ambrosia in some versions. Zeus placed her in the sky to honour her (Catasterismi). Capricorn is also associated with the god Saturn and the god Aristaeus. The Babylonian zodiacal sign is called šaxû "ibex." The sun in this month entered the suxûru-fish constellation, called the star of Tashmetum, the wife of Nabu. The goat-fish is known from depictions on Babylonian monuments. Also linked to the Greek God, Pan.
The astrological symbol for Capricorn is said to represent the horns and tail of the goat-fish or sea-goat. You will often see this symbol next to the Capricorn horoscopes.
Astrologers broadly agree that the Capricorn person is prudent, responsible, realistic, very wise, formal, patient, methodical, disciplined, traditional, cautious, conventional, hard-working, polite, persevering, ambitious, dedicated, focused, honest, dependable, serious, self-reliant, businesslike, career-oriented, authoritative, conscientious, and competent. They can also sometimes be rigid, suspicious, status-seeking, demanding, obsessed with rules, insensitive, inhibited, cold, dry, aloof, lack emotional depth, be possessive, self-conscious, materialistic, stuck up, neutral, narrow-minded, vindictive, bitter, lacking hope, melancholy, controlling, harshly critical, restricting, calculating, and saturnine. All of these characteristics affect Capricorn horoscopes.
Suitable occupations are where responsible, patient and economizing qualities can be exercised, such as scientist, engineer, manager, civil servant, mathematician, farmer, sport players, voice actor, builder, politician, or director. In medical astrology Capricorn governs the knees and skeleton.
