The year 2020 is almost upon us and we are presently bathing in a felicitous Capricorn (December 22 – January 20) interval. If you pay close attention, you might notice that people are extra jolly this time of the year. We Capricorns will take some of the credit. Thank you.
To refresh your memory (and your Zodiac lineup), Capricorn is a Latin word for “horned goat” and it is depicted as a mythical creature that is half goat and half fish.
The Capricorn originally had goat legs because he is connected to Pan, the god of nature who also has goat legs. Pan was a loafer; among other things he liked to play panpipes and cavort with nymphets.
The Capricorn finally got a fishtail because one day, during a gathering of gods, the meeting was interrupted by Typhon, a monstrous serpentine giant. Extremely scared, and to confuse Typhon, all of the gods morphed into different shapes and ran; Pan himself jumped into a river, and to confound the monster, he reshaped his legs into a fishtail. And that’s why the Capricorn is now a horny goat with Billy goat legs.
As you can see, Capricorns are resourceful, disciplined, dependable and trustworthy.
Famous (and infamous) Capricorns are legions… Joan of Arc, Benjamin Franklin, Al Capone, Elvis Presley, Louis Pasteur, Richard Nixon, Mao Zedong, Martin Luther King, Steve Allen, Stephen Hawking, Giacomo Puccini, Elizaveta Petrovna (Empress of Russia), Greta Thunberg, etc.
Maybe lesser known Capricorns, but closer to home, we have William Lavelle, Jacques Gautier, Jean-Claude Bunand, Carlos Couto, Margo Efron, Bart Zachofsky, Mark Shirkey and your humble chronicler.
Capricorns are a sturdy lot. They are resilient and opinionated.
“I don’t like to bother people, says a man who drove himself to the ER with a nail in his heart.”
Spoken like a true Capricorn!
Among the major presidential candidates, Pete Buttigieg is the only Capricorn. He is a smart guy, becoming the mayor of South Bend, IN, at age 29, and he is a good debater.
I would definitely endorse him if he became the Democratic candidate. It seems to me that he is the type of guy would walk to the ER with a nail in his heart. Our actual figurehead would be incapable of doing this because he cannot walk and tweet at the same time.
“The most compatible signs with Capricorn are generally considered to be Taurus, Virgo, Scorpio, and Pisces. The least compatible signs with Capricorn are generally considered to be Aries and Libra.”
All right then, Sanders is a Virgo, Biden is a Scorpio. Any of these two will do.
Bidy/Butti (Biden/Buttigieg) has a nice ring to it.
