Capricorn Symbol - images and interpretations of the Capricorn symbol and ruler.
The sign of Capricorn is ruled by Saturn. This planet got its name by the Roman god with a complicated role and many associations. He was considered the god of generation, dissolution, plenty, wealth, agriculture, periodic renewal and liberation. Later on, he was assigned his important role as the god of time.
The most important thing to notice here is the shape of the symbol that actually relates to the inverted symbol of Jupiter, speaking of the archetypal battle of a son with his father. The symbol itself is an illustration of a sickle, representing the time for harvest and the collection of products from one’s work. It consists of a cross and a crescent, showing matter (cross) that takes precedence over mind, or one’s Soul (crescent). This is the symbol of unavoidable circumstances, those we see ass karma in our failed attempt to explain how we deserved what we got.
If we consider the role of Saturn as the god of time, we can see that the symbol shows the passing of time through the cross of matter, representing our aging body that starts holding us back from the needs of our Soul, as time goes by.
