The zodiac symbol for Capricorn is actually the goat - the "sea goat," to be exact, but I always think of the white stag with Capricorn because of its association with Solstice, which is actually marked by the sun arriving at zero degrees Capricorn every December.
However, the origins of the stag's association with solstice actually come from the ancient shamanic cultures of the north - where it was actually a reindeer - a female reindeer - while male reindeer lose their antlers for the winter, the females keep theirs. And there is even more magic associated with the sign of Capricorn.
Capricorn is much more than a mountain-climbing goat in astrology, although taking practically planned strategic action steps IS a part of this energy. The sea goat is actually the only zodiac symbol that's a mythical creature, and it relates back to the ancient Sumerians and the god Enki, who ruled over fresh water. Fresh water and irrigation were very important to the Sumerian civilization, set upon the marsh lands of the Fertile Crescent. Saturn, ruler of Capricorn, was a Roman god of the harvest, which falls in line with this.
While we see the modern expression of Capricorn as a sign ruling over the big systems of society like governments and financial systems, and Saturn as the athority figure and one who rules over time, responsibility, rules, limits, and boundaries, if we dig a little deeper we will find in this sign something much more ancient and magical, having to do with earth magic - the magic at the heart of alchemy - using the elements to create something new here on the earth plane. This magic has rules, we must follow the laws of nature. But when we correctly apply the rules to the given materials, and use the proper structure and containers, we can create new magic.
While the sun arriving at zero degrees Capricorn for solstice represents the brand new solar cycle, the Capricorn new moon is when the moon catches up to meet the sun in Capricorn to begin a new lunar cycle.
On the evening of Tuesday, January 12th, we arrive at the Caprcicorn new moon, with Capricorn's ruler having just met up with Jupiter at solstice for the Great Conjunction at zero degrees Aquarius, a brand new 20 year cycle and 200 year cycle, and a big shift from earth to air. This is the new moon that really gets the new year vibe going.
The planetary set up is completely different from this time last year as we embark on a new era.
So with this Capricorn new moon, what new magic would you like to create?
