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.
