Capricorn is the tenth zodiac sign on the zodiac circle and represents the transition of the sun through the sign of the Goat between December 22 and January 19 every year, according to the tropical astrology.

Therefore, everyone who is born in this period is said to belong to the Capricorn sign. The symbol associated with this sign is the Goat. This is an animal that lives in rough condition and is always climbing and enduring the climate.

It reveals natives that are down to earth and hard working but also ambitious and resourceful. The glyph for the Capricorn zodiac sign depicts a goat climbing or simply the head of a corned goat.

Symbolism and history of the Goat:

The Goat in the Capricorn astrology meaning is the representative figure of the animal living on mountain peaks, enduring the roughest conditions and climbing higher and higher without any retreat. This is an ambivalent nature of a being who is torn between their ambitions and the doubts and obstacles met on the way.

The Capricorn is fixed, sure footed and never making a step aside his root, always knowing where he’s headed. He might be climbing high out of ambition or maybe out of the desire for the safety and stability of the mountain peak.

This is also the symbol of resilience and hard work of an individual working his whole life to achieve accomplishment.

Characteristics of the Goat:

The goat is stubborn and determined, ready to defend itself and ready to resist in the roughest of conditions. What many don’t see is that the goat is equipped with great self awareness and interior wisdom.

Capricorn natives are willful but also moderated. They have their goals and they aim high but they also know when to stop and settle. They are highly self disciplined and there are little temptations they could succumb to in life.

The native symbolized by the goat is tenacious and domineering in the areas he feels he masters and serious and hard working for the rest. There is little risk taking or reckless behavior in the life of Capricorns.
