Capricorn artwork by Chris Freyer

The Capricorn symbol is the body and head of a goat with the tail of a fish. It is based on the Sumerians’ primordial god of wisdom and waters, Enki, because Capricorns are intelligent, logical, and goal oriented.

The last earth sign of the zodiac, Capricorn is represented by the sea goat, a mythological creature with the body of a goat and the tail of a fish. Accordingly, Capricorns are skilled at navigating both the material and emotional realms.

Opposite sign and Houses: Cancer

The private life, domesticity, the need for a home base, and nurturance (Cancer and the 4th house) versus the public life, career, reputation, and accountability (Capricorn and the tenth house). Attachments and love are ruled by Cancer and the 4th, while achievements and rewards/punishments are ruled by Capricorn. In some ways, this polarity deals with the balance between unconditional love and conditional love.
