Capricorn (December 22 – January 20)
Characteristics: The last earth sign of the zodiac, Capricorn is represented by the sea-goat, a mythological creature with the body of a goat and tail of a fish.
Capricorns tap into their inner fortitude to overcome whatever stands between them and their long-term goals, and they don’t let anything distract them from getting ahead.
Capricorn is ruled by taskmaster Saturn, the stoic planet that governs time and restrictions. Saturn’s transits always teach us tough lessons, but Capricorn is no stranger to growing pains. With Saturn guiding the Capricorn constellation, many sea goats were exposed to difficulties at an early age.
Interestingly, Capricorns are said to age backward: Having already endured hardships, Capricorns become increasingly youthful, optimistic, and playful as they mature.
