Capricorn Birthstone

February 28, 2019 6 min read

Capricorn is one of the 12 star signs that are derived from the constellations that are present between the sun and other planets. The constellation of Capricorn is Capricornus but it does not coincide with the zodiac sign Capricorn directly. It is a constellation that is said to represent a sign that later became the symbol of the astrological sign Capricorn. That is a sea goat. A sea goat is the one whose upper body is like a goat but the lower body is that of a fish. Another explanation that we get from the location of stars in the constellation of Capricornus is that of a long tail that is said to represent the sings and mistakes of the past that one drags with him.

There are a lot of myths connected to the astrology sign of Capricorn but the most narrated one is the one related to the Greek God Pan. Pan was the god of wild and music. It is said that once during the meeting of gods a giant attacked them and all of them changed shapes to hide from the monster. Pan changed his shape and converted in a goat with the fish tail and then jumped into the river. This is how he confused the monster and managed to escape. Hence the goat fish became a symbol of smartness and intelligence.

Capricorns are the people who are born from December 22 to January 20. They are connected to the plant Saturn. This effectively mean the Saturn and its movement can have a deep effect of the life of a Capricorn person and hence in order to understand the happenings of his life and deal with them a Capricorn must start getting to know the effects of the movement of Saturn on his life. And this could also turn into an opportunity to change the bad that is coming towards you or at least reduce it effectively.

There are many ways by which one could help himself to get the positives out of the energies coming towards him and protect himself from the negative. One of the most tested one is to wear gemstones and birthstones related to the particular zodiac sign that they belong to.
