lol no Capricorn is an EARTH sign. It doesn't always have a tail. In fact that is up for controversy. Some people say the symbol is a sea goat. Others say its a regular goat. But Capricorn is most affiliated with "climbing heights" and mountains are a symbol of the goat. In fact Capricorn is the opposite of the water sign Cancer. The only water elemental signs are Cancer Scorpio Pisces. This is because they are the signs of emotion. Capricorn, Taurus, Virgo. They are more physically based. Some people think Aquarius is a water sign too, but its an air sign. It is more affiliated with the clouds, rain, thunderstorms. When you do research on it, you will see
the capricorn is indeed a sea goat....based on zodiacs mythology pan the satyr, trying to escape the titan typhon tried to hide in the Nile, but he only succeded in transorming half of his body....here www.heavens-above.com/myth.asp...
also there are many other interesting theories....go and enjoy them....good evening friend
That is one theory behind the constellation, in accordance with a tale that was told in ancient Greece. But the constellation itself could mean many things, even though that is the only clear explanation as to how the constellation came to be. Of course Goats were very prized especially during the time of Saturnalia. Goats were more so affiliated with climbing, rather than water.
But it is very interesting either way. Thanks for the link.
indeed...that is the magic of astology...it is full of mysteries....true...also the planet\god protector of capricorn, saturn or chronos, was the one that romans worshipped during the Saturnalia (interesting, no?)....yes but in terms of spirituality the capricorn is a dual sign....like pisces for example, that symbolises both the hightest point (the horns) and the lowest (fishtale)....etc etc etc....the pleasure was all mine
There was something else that I also read up on Capricorn. It has been so long since I've commented to this post. Its interesting that the Sea Goat is also heavily tied to the actual goat. This website gave an intersesting spin on the correlation to the sea Goat as well as the goat we know of today. www.gods-and-monsters.com/capr…
that was really beautiful...dont worry about the late responses..another info...did you know that the true sign of capricornus has never been properly captured for it may unlock undesirable energy from cosmos??
