Born on the Cusp of Capricorn?
Those born on the day the Sun moved into the next sign are referred to as being “born on the cusp”.
For instance in the year I was born the sun moved from Taurus into the next star sign of Gemini, just two hours before my birth. As a result I was born on the Cusp of Taurus and Gemini.
Those born “on the cusp” of either Sagittarius-Capricorn or Capricorn-Aquarius (ie around the 21st December or 21st January) should use this link to check exactly which star sign the sun was in on the day of birth: Cusp Signs

The Story of Capricorn the Sea Goat
The Constellation of Capricorn
Capricorn lies in the area of the sky called The Sea and is a very small, dimly lit constellation. The planet Neptune lies within Capricorn.
The symbol of Capricorn is the Seagoat, a hybrid of mountain goat on the top and fish tail on the bottom.
There are confusing and conflicting stories in the mythology behind the Capricorn constellation. However, the most well known story involves the giant Kronos from Greek mythology, known as the Father-God of all the other Gods.
Legend says that Kronos was worried he would be challenged by his children, the same way he defeated his own father. In order to prevent this, he ate each of his children born to him through Rhea as a result.
These children included Hestia, Demeter, Hades, Poseidon and Hera, all well-known in Greek mythology.
When Kronos fathered Zeus, Rhea hid him in a cave to be raised by goat-herders who nursed him with goat’s milk. In another version of the story, Zeus was actually raised by a goat named Amalthea.
Zeus grew to become the legendary God of thunder and lightning. He freed his siblings by demanding his father to expel them from his belly.
Later, it is said that he immortalized Amalthea the goat by placing her among the stars as the constellation of Capricorn.
Another version, which explains the Capricorn symbol better, is the story of the God Pan. The legend says that he was the goat God who morphed into a fish after jumping into the sea to avoid being assaulted by Typhon.
As a result the part of Pan’s body that was below water became a fish, while the top half remained goat.
The Ruling Planet of Capricorn Horoscopes
Capricorn is ruled by the Planet Saturn. In mythology, Saturn is known as the god Kronos, father of Zeus (see The Story of Capricorn the Sea Goat above).
Those ruled by Saturn tend to be authoritative, disciplined, responsible, goal-oriented and ambitious.
Saturn is said to lead Capricorns to the achievement of their goals and aspirations.

The signs of the Zodiac are also divided into Qualities: Cardinal, Fixed and Mutable.
Signs that share a Quality are known to be hostile to one another.
The Quality refers to an individual’s ingrained temperament. This means that they will have unique and prevailing identifying characteristics that remain the same throughout their life.
Each of the four Qualities sees the world around them in a different way and their reactions to their environment vary so that any resulting action will also be different.

Cardinal signs stand for action and initiative. Capricorns tend to be go-getters and workaholics, focusing on achieving worldly success and material wealth.
