Meaning of Capricorn

Before proceeding to determine the meaning of the term Capricorn, it is necessary to know its etymological origin. In this case, we can establish that it is a word that derives from Latin, specifically from “capricornus”, which is the result of the sum of two components of that language:
-The noun “caper”, which can be translated as “goat”.
-The noun “cornus”, which is equivalent to “horn”.

Hence, it can literally be established that it means “goat’s horn.”

The notion of Capricorn has several uses. There is a constellation called Capricorn or Capricornus, which is usually represented as a goat with a fish tail. Astronomy points out that, among the stars that make up this constellation, are Alpha Capricorni (also called Al Giedi), Beta Capricorni (Dabih), Gamma Capricorni (Nashira) and Delta Capricorni (Deneb Algedi).

The astrology is Capricorn as one of the signs of the zodiac. A person who was born between December 22 and January 1 belongs to this sign: that is, they are Capricorn. For example: “My son is a Capricorn and my husband is Aries”, “You can tell that you are a Capricorn”, “I would like my grandson to be a Capricorn like me”.

Taking into account that it is a horoscope sign, it must be established that it is determined that the people who have it have a series of marked personality characteristics. Thus, it is established that they have a strong character, that they hate monotony and boredom, that they place a lot of value on love and that they can be, at times, very cold.

In the same way, it is indicated that they never give up, that they always have to have goals to fight for and that they are faithful. Not forgetting that they identify as shy and, above all, reserved.

In addition, it has been established that the lucky number of Capricorns is 4 and that the colors that most identify them are blue, yellow and brown.
