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.

The Goat is an animal that lives in rough conditions and is always climbing and enduring a harsh climate.

It reveals the nature of someone who is down to earth and hardworking but also ambitious and resourceful.

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 the 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, never takes a step aside his root, and always knows 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.

Capricorn Symbol

The symbol of the Capricorn zodiac sign depicts a goat climbing or just the head of a corned goat. The glyph is one of the most complex and contains a combination of straight lines (suggestive of the rational), crescent and circle (suggestive of a rather emotional and spiritual nature).

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 wilful but also moderated. They set their goals early in life and they aim high but they also know when to stop and settle.

They are very 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 behaviour in the life of Capricorn.
