Our Cardinal Earth leaders are the last earth sign of the zodiac. Capricorns and their unique spirits are powerful pioneers. Capricorn is ruled by Saturn, the planet of discipline, stewardship, structure, boundaries and most importantly – time. In fact, Saturn’s ancient name is Chronos the Titan personification of time. Thanks to Saturn, Capricorn is so incredibly connected to the concept of time. Capricorns are known to be extremely hardworking visionaries, leaders, and trailblazers. Capricorns are dynamic individuals who express a unique balance of confidence and humility. At this particular time within our wheel of the year, Capricorns energy manifests in themes of dedication and stamina, perfect for getting serious about long term goals and buckling down to endure the lingering chill before the inevitable thaw.
There’s something that makes Capricorn extremely special. Perhaps it’s their fearless ambition? Their limitless resilience? Their ability to keep pushing forward, even in the face of challenging adversity and painful strife? Or, maybe it’s their secret wild side that’s very rarely depicted in standard personality assessments, but that rumbles within the soul of every Capricorn. Capricorn is symbolized by the sea goat, a mythological creature with the body of a goat and tail of a fish. This imagery speaks to Capricorn’s bifurcated abilities: Capricorns are skilled at navigating both the material and emotional realms. They scale the steepest mountains. Capricorn rules the knees, making it easier for this sign to climb while simultaneously building up their psychic fortitude. Capricorns are relentless: They are determined to overcome whatever stands in their way.
I have a deep love for our Capricorn kindred. My son is a triple Cap!
Please be sure to provide yourselves with extra time for cool down. This one packs a punch!
I had a blast cooking up this recipe in honor of our beloved goat-fish brethren. The song that I chose had to be elegant and intense at the same time. Simultaneously elevating and grounding. Babel by Gustavo Breveti is no exception.
