The Rashi of Makara (Sign of Capricorn)

The Sun is beginning its transit into the sign of Capricorn, the tenth                                 sign of the zodiac. CapricornMakara means crocodile, an animal that is equally comfortable on land and in water. Capricorn means goat and the symbol for this constellation and sign is a goat with the tail of a fish. Both the crocodile and the goat-fish symbolize the stage of life and of the spiritual path where one is still living in the material world (land, earth) but also submerging consciousness into the watery depths of the subconscious and the vibrations and currents of the realm of Spirit and the universal sea. Under the influence of Capricorn, one may feel disillusioned with material matters, overburdened with responsibilities, dutiful, and depressed.

Capricorn is a cardinal earth sign ruled by Saturn. Ascendant in Capricorn indicates one who is very hard working, steady, has a strong sense of duty, and usually stubborn. With Saturn as ruler, Capricorn Ascendants have sturdy bones and structure, and like goats, are very steady on their feet. Sun in Capricorn indicates one who deeply wants to activate and deal with past accumulated karma. This tends to evoke many unusual and problematic events and hardships in one’s life, but the soul’s goal is to pay for past karma so it can move quickly towards awareness and shine its inner light. Moon in Capricorn indicates one who is emotionally stubborn yet sensitive and intuitive. Capricorn Moons can also be self-sacrificing, rebellious of traditions, and have a tendency to suffer from depression, though this may be their path to absolving past karma and connecting with their deeper/higher Self.
