The Devil in Tarot & the sign of Capricorn

devil tarot meaning

Yes that is me in buffer days ! That outfit took a very long time to make & the bodypaint was a nightmare bigger than any scary Tarot card …

“The inverted Pentagram glowed, behind I saw him. The Devil. I saw the chains & knew all men & all women were beholden to him. The voice returned: ” He is evil incarnate, though only if you allow him the power. Look with purity & truth, see only love beyond time & he will dissolve. Eternal love can be yours”. All fear left me as I felt the love in my heart …”


If you are a Capricorn (December 22 to January 20), you are a personality to be reckoned with, but in a quiet, subtle way. These are people who will achieve whatever goal they set for themselves. They have the grit and determination to see out a project or an objective, no matter how long it takes. They are surprisingly witty, when they allow themselves to be, although they’re not the fiery, flashy kind. A Capricorn will always be on time, will always have positions of responsibility. They make good psychologists because of their ability to listen to short-tempered people or people on a rant. They have an ability to stay calm and reasoned in a disagreement or conflict, even though the other side may be more passionate.

Contrary to Capricorn belief, there is more to life than money. And, although Capricorns may find this hard to accept, too, weekends are for leaving the house, not staying home to count one’s money.

Advice: Pessimism doesn’t look good on anybody. Lighten up, Capricorn.

They are deep thinkers who have good memories and a never-ending intellectual curiosity.  In their relationships, they can have a tendency towards unhappiness. Capricorns set very high standards for themselves, and can be easily disappointed if others don’t set equally high standards.

Professionally, they are strongly attracted to music, although their logical side also makes them excellent bankers. Some famous Capricorns include Anwar Sadat and Martin Luther King. Paul Cezanne and Henri Matisse were also Capricorns. Other famous Capricorns include Richard Nixon, Simone de Beauvoir and Edgar Allen Poe.

After the Age of Aquarius in the zodiac Great Year (approximately 2000-4000 CE) will come the Age of Capricorn. It’s hard to predict what the human condition will be by then. Will we have moved on to other planets and solar systems. If the Age of Aquarius is to be marked by humanitarianism and greater understanding among the people on Earth, (we hope!), what will define the Age of Capricorn. Will we achieve the goals of Aquarius. Many people look towards the new millennium and the beginning of a new era in the Great Year with hope that we will have learned from the mistakes of the past. Hopefully we will continue to learn and in the Age of Capricorn will have evolved to even greater human potential.

For the month of January, the zodiac Earth sign is of course Capricorn and your birthstone is Garnet. It is available in a variety of colors except blue. If you were born in January, you should get a garnet jewelry as a powerful addition to your wardrobe. Capricorn are stable and consistent. While not as compassionate as the water signs, they are nonetheless nurturing. If you are Capricorn Saturday is your best day, ruled by Saturn and Capricorn and its color is Brown. Capricorn lives with the fear of rejection

The Mythology of Capricorn
In ancient Sumeria, the sign of Capricorn was often associated with the planet Saturn and the Sumerian deity Enki. But the full picture of Capricorn as we know it today comes from†the ancient Greeks. In Greek mythology, Cronus was a Titan, and the father of the gods.
Just as he overthrew his own father, Uranos, Cronus knew he would be overthrown by one of his children. So, as each of his and Rhea’s children was born, he swallowed them whole. Hestia, Demeter, Hades, Poseidon, Hera, all of them were swallowed before they could grow up and threaten his rule.
Rhea wanted children to play with, so when Zeus was born, she wrapped a rock in swaddling clothes and gave that to Cronus instead. Zeus was hidden away in a cave and raised by foster parents. There are different versions of the myth. In one version, Zeus was raised by a goat-tending nymph named Amalthea or Adamanthea, and in another, by the goat herself (also named Amalthea), but the one constant through all of them is that Zeus was raised on goat’s milk.
When Zeus was old enough, he released the imprisoned brothers of Cronus–the Giants and the Cyclopes–who gave him power over thunder and lightning. With their help, Zeus was able to overthrow Cronus, and force him to spit out Zeus’ brothers and sisters.
The goat’s horn later became the Horn of Plenty, or Cornucopia. In some versions, the goat’s skin became the Golden Fleece that Jason and the Argonauts searched for.
In thanks for tending him as a baby, Zeus placed Amalthea in the sky, as the constellation Capricornus, the Goat. Saturn is the ruling planet of Capricorn and is associated with principles such as reality and restrictions, boundaries and rules. The best love match for a Capricorn is Scorpio; they understand each other on a profound spiritual, almost psychic level. Scorpios give their hearts completely and passionately.

Capricorns are said to be persistent, hard workers.  Perhaps this is why they are thought to be workaholics.  They are driven to get the job done no matter how long it takes.  Capricorn (cardinal, earth, universal): suspicious, prudent, cautious.

Earth Element
Astrology: Taurus, Capricorn, Virgo
Jung: sensation
Feel the Earth under our feet, the soil that sustains all forms of life. Look at the power and beauty of the mountains, a symbol of stability and solidity of the earth. Everyday we experience the physical world, we walk on this earth, enjoy
the beauty and bounty of Mother Earth and feel the comfort of being on solid ground.

Associated with the signs Taurus, Capricorn and Virgo, Earth represents the practical, realistic material side of our nature, it seeks to assert a stable, secure and structured environment into which we can function. Feel the earth under your feet, solid and steady as you walk slowly. Earth is patient and reliable. It is solid and strong. To be on solid ground encourages one to seek the practical and most logical answer to a problem.

Earth can be a stabilizing force in a relationship contributing structure and organization to achieve balance and harmony. Earth sustains growth- watch
plant life grow, from an acorn does an oak tree grow; so does man grow from youth to maturity, and realize the immense growth in every facet of life.

The over expression of this element can be seen in a stubborn and rigid  personality, one that strives to remain in the comfort zone in life, afraid to take
risks. It can also be seen by a love of the material side of life, the comforts of material well- being, material worth can be over emphasized and this can
lead to a stressful worrisome situation.

Weakness: attachment, stinginess, materialism, resists change, too much attention to detail and miss the big picture.

Traits of Capricorn

Capricorn is the workhorse of the Zodiac, working his way up the ladder of success, slowly and steadily.

Goats have a strong sense of tradition and structure, and make excellent teachers.  They respect history and believe in passing on an inheritance.  Capricorn is ruled by Saturn, which means that they take the long view on things.  Like the tortoise racing against the hare, they know too well that slow and steady wins the race.î

Capricorns are probably the most far-thinking of all the signs.  Where Sagittarius and Leo are partying for the moment, Capricorn is planning his schedule four years in the future.  But this focus on the future comes with a price.

Capricorn can get so preoccupied with the future that he starts to focus on death, and then becomes easily and deeply depressed.  It’s very easy for a Capricorn to fall into a woe is me attitude, worrying about the never ending series of bad things that always seem to hit them at their most vulnerable.  Thankfully, because of their long-term views, most Goats can overcome this handicap by just putting their head down and working even harder.

Capricorns understand the meaning of sacrifice, because each of those hurdles that force them into the long and slow path to success means sacrificing something to overcome them.

Capricorns tend towards black, which is perfectly suited to their depression.  They also lean to the traditional in home and style and especially food.  Goats tend to eat plain and straightforward meals rather than something exotic.

Capricorns tend to do well in large corporations, where their work ethic allows them to work their way up a long ladder.  Capricorns are also uniquely suited to handling numbers and data.

Finally, because of their traditional outlook and innate teaching skills, Capricorns make excellent parents.  Children give them an heir, someone to pass along the family legacy to, which is one of the core pieces of the Goat’s makeup.

Capricorn is a sign that begins at the end of December. Anyone born from December 23rd through January 20th falls under this sign. You might know an individual who shares your zodiac sign astrology designation who is nothing like you. Im sure that we all can. It is difficult to determine if the character traits are valid or not because they are often vague.

For example, Capricorns are supposed to take a great deal of time in finding their niche in life. This struggle is represented in the goat. The goat takes a long time to climb a mountain but he works consistently and diligently until he reaches his goal. This notion could be applicable to any of the signs of the zodiac sign astrology chart.
