the tenth sign in the zodiac and
represents those born between dec. 22 and jan. 19.
usually depicted as a goat or sea-goat, but in greek mythology he is the
god pan. pan ruled
over forests and woodlands, flocks and shepherds. from the waist down he was a
goat and also had the ears and horns of a goat, and from the waist up he was a
man. he was a horny little guy and was always trying to catch a nymph, who
would flee because of his appearance. he, eventually, became the god of nature,
and some of his qualities, such as sexuality and love of nature have become
part of the character of people born under this sign. another story is that the
goat nymph, amalthea,
who suckled zeus as
an infant, was placed among the stars as the constellation capricorn by zeus in
to astrology capricorn is
an earth sign and people born under this sign are responsible, patient,
ambitious and loyal.
