Capricorn (astrology), From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Capricorn is an astrological sign, which is associated with the constellation Capricornus. Under the tropical zodiac, Capricorn is occupied by the Sun from December 22 to January 19, and under the sidereal zodiac, it is currently from January 15 to February 12. The opposite sign to Capricorn is Cancer.
Capricorn is the tenth sign of the Zodiac and associated with hard work and business affairs. Individuals born under this sign are thought to have an ambitious, modest, patient, responsible, stable, trustworthy, perspicacious and persistent character but one which is also prone to coldness, conservatism, rigidity, materialism, and dullness. Capricorn is often depicted as having the lower half of a fish. This is due to Capricorn's antiquated classification as a Water sign (sea-goat), while modern astrology holds that Capricorn is indubitably an Earth sign.
In terms of anatomy, Capricorn is said to rule the knees, bones, and skin. Physically, individuals born under the sign of Capricorn supposedly tend to have curly and dark hair, steady eyes, a dark complexion, capable hands, and prominent cheekbones.
