Tarot Card for Capricorn

Capricorn's Tarot Card: The Devil

Capricorn’s cycle of neverending work and its need to succeed is represented in its Tarot card, The Devil. This Tarot card often pictures Pan, the half-man/half-goat nature god, reigning over a dark and fiery hell. Capricorn’s constant need to get to the top -- no matter what -- can often make this sign feel like a victim of circumstances. Much like the Mountain Goat’s tireless and eternal work ethic, The Devil is about feeling trapped or stuck and creating our own personal hell.

Capricorn Planet

Capricorn's Ruling Planet: Saturn

Seriously, Saturn! The planet Saturn rules over the zodiac sign Capricorn with a serious hand. In Roman mythology, Saturn was the god who ruled over space and time, so in Astrology it’s no surprise he represents limits and lessons. This planet brings out the traditional side of Capricorn, enhancing its practical nature to ensure the Goat takes calculated steps toward success. As the planet of karma, Saturn says that if you put in the work, you will be rewarded, and that’s what Capricorn is all about.

Capricorn Astrology Element

Capricorn's Element: Earth

The element of Earth keeps the zodiac sign Capricorn committed, disciplined, and hard-working. Capricorn embraces the Earth element’s reliable and sound sense of foundation. This sign often takes on the responsibility of being the glue that keeps its family, friends, and loved ones together. Just like a Goat on the side of a treacherous mountain, Capricorns put in extra effort and careful strategies to turn their dreams into realities.

Capricorn Color

Capricorn's Color: Grey & Brown

Like a rough winter landscape, grey and brown are the colors of Capricorn. These strong but neutral colors represent Capricorn’s solidity, reliability, and traditionalism. A combination of extremes -- white and black -- grey enhances the conservative nature of Capricorn and its no-nonsense approach to life. Brown represents stability, and can greatly benefit the Goat’s steadfast determination as it strives to reach its goals.

Capricorn's Quality: Cardinal

As a Cardinal sign, Capricorn welcomes us to a winter wonderland! Capricorn is the first sign of the winter season, and its natural initiative and drive stem from its Cardinal nature. Cardinal signs represent beginnings, and since we ring in the New Year under the sign of Capricorn, this Cardinal energy helps push us forward with hope and determination.
