Capricorn Horoscope: Dates & Meaning
Capricorn dates in astrology are typically from December 22 to January 19. If your birthday falls in this date range, you most likely have a Capricorn Sun sign. Although Capricorn's horoscope birth dates can change depending on the year, these are customarily the Capricorn calendar dates.
For about 30 days each year, the Sun travels through the part of the zodiac occupied by Capricorn. December 22-January 19 is typically the Capricorn birth date range. Some years, the Capricorn start date will be a day earlier on December 21, or the Capricorn end date will fall a day later on January 20.
Capricorn is the tenth sign of the zodiac, which contains 12 signs in total. The Capricorn horoscope dates are close to the end of the 12-month astrological cycle, which proceeds all the way to Pisces. The Capricorn star sign is a grounded earth sign (element) and a leadership-oriented cardinal sign (quality). As the only cardinal earth sign in the zodiac, Capricorn people are ambitious, hardworking, and driven to achieve. Capricorn celebrities include Katie Couric, Dolly Parton, Howard Stern, Rush Limbaugh, Orlando Bloom, Jude Law and Elvis Presley. Capricorns are the successful stoics of the zodiac. If you date a Capricorn, prepare to take second place to their ambitious projects at times and to embrace their families and childhood friends, as this sign remains most loyal to people and relationships that stand the test of time.
The constellations have shifted. Is there a different Capricorn birth date range now?
Periodically, astronomers will announce “breaking news” that horoscopes aren’t accurate because the constellations have shifted. Or they will announce is a 13th zodiac sign, citing the constellation Ophiucus and claiming that the horoscope dates for Capricorn (and every other sign) have changed.
Here’s an interesting bit of clarification between astronomy and astrology. The actual constellations have shifted over the ages, but astrology follows a different system, which uses “artificial” constellations. Rather than following the movement of the visible stars, Western astrology is based on the apparent path of the Sun as seen from our vantage point on earth. Within that path, astrologers have carved out static zones, and we track the planetary movements against these. That is why Capricorn dates remain the same even as the heavens keep shifting.
In the second century Alexandria, the great mathematician and astronomer/astrologer Ptolemy created the Tropical Zodiac, which is a fixed system that is not affected by changes in the constellations or the Earth’s axis. Ptolemy used the same names for the zodiac signs as he did for the constellations, which is why there is confusion around the Capricorn birth date range. The Tropical Zodiac is static and not affected by shifts in the Earth’s axis. It begins every year with the Aries pseudo-constellation, which is based on the position of the Sun at the spring equinox on March 21.
Capricorn Horoscope: Personal Traits
Smart, hardworking, and fully in control of their destiny, Capricorn signs will always get what they set their mind to, in both personal and professional life—no excuses. Capricorns may get a reputation as stubborn, but they simply know what they want, and also know how they wish other people would behave.
Natural rule-followers, Capricorns thrive on order and love strict rules, hierarchies, and set ways to do things. Can a Capricorn sign think outside the box? Yes, they can, but they prefer when they have strict boundaries to constrain against—free reign can make them feel paralyzed by choice. Capricorns are great at climbing the corporate ladder, and especially adept at making (and investing) money. Capricorns love family, and put a lot of stock in traditions. A Capricorn might stress themselves out trying to do everything perfectly—a Capricorn may feel like they must present a home-cooked meal every day, and would never admit to doing drive-thru or takeout. Capricorns believe presentation is everything, and their homes are usually Insta-worthy. A Capricorn sometimes is overly focused on what things look like, instead of how things feel, which could cause them to feel stifled and unhappy.
Capricorn needs to find a firm sense of self beyond how others perceive them, and recognize that racking up achievements is only one small part of their personality.
Capricorn signs are loyal friends, and have a funny and sly sense of humor when you get to know them—it is fun drawing them out of their shells. In love, Capricorn is a true partner, who is laser-focused on helping their partner find success and happiness. A Capricorn will dive into a relationship like a job, and believes that hard work can help make a bond as strong as possible. While sometimes a romantic conversation may veer toward feeling a bit like a board meeting, especially with action items and improvement plans, but if you roll with it, they have a point: Your bond will be stronger.
|Belonging to the element of Earth, like Taurus and Virgo, this is the last sign in the trio of practicality and grounding. Not only do they focus on the material world, but they have the ability to use the most out of it. Unfortunately, this element also makes them stiff and sometimes too stubborn to move from one perspective or point in a relationship. They have a hard time accepting differences of other people that are too far from their character, and out of fear might try to impose their traditional values aggressively. |
Saturn is the ruling planet of Capricorn, and this planet represents restrictions of all kinds. Its influence makes these people practical and responsible, but also cold, distant, and unforgiving, prone to the feeling of guilt and turned to the past. They need to learn to forgive in order to make their own life lighter and more positive.
Capricorn – the Goat of Fear. A goat with the tail of a fish is created to face fear and create panic. It is the sign of decisions made to be protected from monsters in our minds, lives, and immediate physical surrounding.
Always ready to transform into something that scares those scary things off, Capricorn speaks of each natural chain reaction of fear, where one scary thing leads to many others, rising up as defensive mechanisms that only make things worse. Immersed in their secrecy, they face the world just as they are – brave enough to never run away, but constantly afraid of their inner monsters.
