Origins in Mythology
The sign of Capricorn within
the Astrological zodiac dates back to at least some 4,000 years. It
is known that the Sumerians placed a great emphasis upon this particular
time of the period. During their age, the winter solstice occurred
within Capricorn. On this date, many cultures of the ancient world
would perform elaborate rituals and carry out sacrifices.
The association of the goat with Capricorn clearly dates back to ancient
Babylon, at least. The Greeks related the sign to the horned god Pan.
The image of the hybrid goat-fish creature corresponds to the tale
of Pan's encounter with the beast Typhon..Attempting to escape
the dreaded monster, Pan turned his lower half into a fish, in order
to swiftly swim away. However, here again, the association of Capricorn
with water, also dates to earlier cultures.
The Egyptians and Chinese recognized
this period as the commencement of the much anticipated rainy season.
Immediately following Capricorn are Aquarius, the water bearer, pouring
moisture upon the earth, and Pisces, the fish, immersed in the
unseen life giving forces of water.
