Our symbol of the Goat isn’t highly regarded as a sexy, sleek one, but that’s probably because people don’t realize just how meaningful our sign’s glyph is! Here’s what else I learned about it...
- It depicts the V-shaped beard of a steadfast goat, plus a sea goat’s mermaid-like tail.
- Another interpretation of it is the Sun rising slowly up during the Winter Solstice (the first day of Capricorn).
- It is a depiction of the human knee and kneecap, the part of the body that our sign rules.
- It is two straight lines that meet up and connect into a circle, forming a crescent. This illustrates how responsibility and authority are strengthened by enthusiasm and passion!
