Capricorn: The 10th Sign of the Zodiac
The tenth Step: Reaching the peak

by Serenity Chappell



capricorn goat


Capricorn is the tenth sign of the Zodiac. It follows Sagittarius in the Zodiacal line-up. As a rule, the range of Capricorn covers the time from December 22nd until January 21st. It is a time of consolidation, organization, and reinforcement.

It is associated with structure, long-term ambitions, fortification of things that have to last, professional accomplishments, public life pursuits, and personal fame and prestige. Capricorn is involved with authority issues, political systems, government, corporations, and social institutions.

The Zodiacal symbol for Capricorn is the Sea Goat. Capricorn is the Cardinal Earth sign. Earth signs are pragmatic, grounded, conservative, and materialistic. Cardinal signs are proactive and initiating. They deal with life's problems by taking action to change circumstances ... and create new conditions.

Carpricorn is a Cardinal sign

Capricorn natives combine these qualities into characters that are practical, determined, methodical, and concerned with creating structures, relationships, and assets that will endure pretty much any experience life throws at it ... and survive.

The other Cardinal signs are Aries, Libra, and Cancer. The natural style these signs take in their approach to life can bring challenges to their relationships with Capricorn. The other Earth signs are Taurus and Virgo. Common values and similar preferences in habits and ambitions help these signs find an easier, more natural compatibility with Capricorn.

Mix and match

Traditionally, Capricorn is compatible with Taurus and Virgo, other Capricorns, Scorpio and Pisces. Scorpio and Pisces bring supportive and complementary qualities that can enhance their relationship with Capricorn.

On the other hand, a match between Capricorn and Aries or Capricorn and Libra carries special challenges ... and a relationship between Capricorn and Cancer will require well-defined "territories" for each partner ... and a constant willingness to compromise on many issues, for these two signs often hold to different values. As you can see, Cancer / Capricorn relationships can be kind of a mixed blessing.

Physically, Capricorn rules the legs ... particularly the knees and calves. The ruling planet of Capricorn is Saturn. Capricorn is associated with the colors black, dark gray or dark navy blue. (All the "businesslike" colors.) The starstone (not the birthstone) assigned to Capricorn is the black onyx.
