Welcome to the horoscopes and tarot cards series. In this series, you will learn some of the basics of astrology tarot cards. The first one to be introduced is the Capricorn Tarot Card.
What is the Capricorn Tarot Card?
Capricorn is the 10th sign in the zodiac, its’ element is earth, and infamous for its cold, authoritative, and sometimes suppressive traits. Capricorn month is January, but to be specific, Capricorn dates are between 22 December and 20 January.
What is lesser known about Capricorn is that he always thinks about what’s best for the whole community and makes his decisions keeping rules and regulations in his mind.
Capricorn’s personality is disciplined and ambitious, and their relentless nature makes them a powerful enemy. The Capricorn symbol is illustrated as a sea goat.
The goat represents stubbornness and the earth element, whereas his fish tail depicts his suppressed emotional side and water element.
Although we perceive Capricorn people as cold and distant, behind the veil, they experience a constant flow of emotions that chase them all the time (tail).
You can think of Capricorn Sun as someone who is very critical and demanding, yet very protective on the inside. Just like Capricorn Sun, Capricorn moon people may fear attachments and avoid committing to deep connections with people.
Capricorn traits can include negative self-talk habits and contemplating the worst of every situation. This is merely because Capricorn is a realistic zodiac sign who prepares himself for any possible negative outcome, but these negative accumulations are likely to hurt Capricorn the most.
How do tarot cards represent Capricorn?
In mythology, Saturn was the lord of time and since Capricorn is ruled by Saturn, the most important aspect of this sign is patience.
Capricorn learns the value of patience and time throughout their journey. If you master these most important lessons, then you achieve fulfillment- which is wonderfully illustrated with The World tarot card.
The World tarot card represents the full completion of the cycle and shows that spiritual lessons have been mastered. If you asked a question and this card popped up, then count yourself lucky because there’s a lot of success, happiness, and fulfillment awaiting you!
Anything is possible with this immensely positive card! Now, the universe is your playground and you can manifest any desire that comes to your mind!
The downside of Capricorn is that it can be hungry for power and sex, which is best depicted in the tarot with The Devil tarot card.
This is the card of temptation and it can indicate a person with addictions. The Devil symbolizes a person in your life who is manipulative but it can have power over you only if you let him!
The Devil is the 15th card in tarot, therefore, don’t give up on your freedom, you still have 6 cards for you to learn and master your life lessons! It can also point out some unresolved emotions, blockages, or unhealthy patterns of behavior.
All of these may be hindering your progress, but remember, you can break free from them!
As for the Minor Arcana, there are four main suits: Wands, Swords, Cups, and Coins. You’ll immediately notice that Capricorn energy is infused in the Coins suit.
Knight of Coins, Ace of Coins, Seven of Coins, and Nine of Coins are all Capricorn tarot cards. Let’s begin with Knight of Coins: Knight is a middle-aged, mature man building a business that is moving along quite nicely. He is learning how to master finance on his current path and this is a very beneficial card for business/career readings.
Ace of Coins is the best card in Minor Arcana if you’re interested in starting a new job or jumping into a brand new career path. It heralds new beginnings with excellent financial prospects! The money tree is entering your life and you must seize the opportunities that come!
Seven of Coins symbolizes an era in your life where you need patience (Saturn) in your material affairs. Don’t give up and keep saving money, later you will use these savings for a wise financial investment.
If you are considering switching jobs and picked this card, then perhaps you should stick to your current routine, and then change your job when you are financially secure.
Nine of Coins is the absolute best representation of material harvest and financial stability. Saturn appreciates all your hard work and now you can enjoy your money!
This is an extremely prosperous card to choose for business and the card suggests you continue to practice self-discipline and plan wisely to manage your wealth.
Coming back to personal ground, Capricorn’s personality can be best observed when their loved one is in danger. Capricorns will stand out in the crowd due to their cold-blooded nature that can make a successful getaway plan even in the darkest times.
Capricorns are incredibly resilient because they have a vision for the future. They can make long-term plans and commit to them. Can you imagine a Cancer in a bottomless pit?
Cancer is the exact opposite sign of Capricorn, and it is ruled by the Moon. Being ruled by the moody Moon, Cancer is far from being grounded. In a love relationship, Capricorn and Cancer can easily wear out each other, however, they would make a terrific duo when it comes to forming business alliances.
You might ask, how about Capricorn compatibility? Well, Capricorn can easily get along with fellow earth elements (Virgo and Taurus), but perhaps the most underrated match is Capricorn and Pisces.
One represents taking responsibility whereas the other symbolizes letting go and living in the flow, making this duo a combination of opposites. Another match can happen between Capricorn and Scorpio, due to the emotional intensity and passion, they can walk the path of life together and master the lessons of Saturn: Downfall, death, and rebirth.
Last but not least, Libra and Capricorn would be great together due to the exaltation of Saturn in Libra. Saturn is the classical ruler of Capricorn, but he adores Libra because the most important lesson of Saturn is balance (Libra). Only if we offset the material world with spiritual teachings, we can become whole.
In conclusion, Capricorn’s most vibrant card is The Devil, however, The World card has the greatest importance, because it symbolizes satisfaction, self-realization, mastering the elements of the world, and the lessons of Saturn.
