Qualities of a Capricorn

Represented by a goat with a fish’s tail and ruled by the ringed planet of Saturn, Capricorns are born at the end of one year and the beginning of a new one. All of this comes together to make for a practical, sometimes rigid personality focused on balance, stability, and responsibility.

Capricorns are clear-eyed about dangers in their world, sometimes tending toward a nervous or restricted perspective. They seek to create order out of chaos and identify where things can be joined, fixed, or corrected. Like the closed rings of Saturn or the transition from one year to another, Capricorns like patterns and connections.

Capricorn Symbols

Goat: Capricorns are represented by a horned goat with the tail of a fish. This mythical creature spans the real and the fantastical; the water and the land. Just like their symbol, Capricorns like to find ways to bridge gaps and insist that everything, even strange things, have a purpose and make sense. 

Saturn: The ruling planet for an Capricorn is Saturn, known for its massive rings. The unbroken circle of Saturn’s rings represents the Capricorn’s preference for tidiness and cohesion in everything from plans to ideas to their living space. Clever and resourceful, a Capricorn can find a place for anything and put anything in its place.

Brown: Visible in images of the ruling planet Saturn, the earthy color brown is associated with the Capricorn sign. Rich brown soil, where new life grows and where even decay has a role and a purpose, is representative of the Capricorn’s sensible and grounded nature. From soft bird feathers to rough tree bark, brown brings together all the complexity of nature, just like a Capricorn does in their own life.

Crystals for Capricorn 

Brown crystals, sometimes understated or overlooked but no less powerful in their energies, are a good choice for the Capricorn who likes to keep both feet on the ground. Leopardskin Jasper, which comes in a variety of shades and often has circular patterns, is perfect for the Capricorn interested in crystal healing. Bronzite, a coppery metallic stone, is also excellent for a Capricorn sign.

Crystal Work for Capricorn

Capricorns can sometimes be uncomfortable with ambiguity and prefer for everything to make sense and fit into clear patterns. Crystal meditations can help open the mind to new ideas and find flexibility. 

Crystal meditations for Capricorn:

  • Truth is not limited to my own understanding
  • I can find meaning even in chaos
  • Disarray is natural and unavoidable

  • Resourceful and practical, a Capricorn likes to make connections between ideas, people, and things; and seeks order, meaning, and cohesion.

    Use crystals to:

    • Organize workflows and spaces
    • Articulate your cohesive worldview 
    • Lean into opportunities to develop structure
