December 22 – January 20
Alongside all their beautiful traits this sign does have a shadow side. Being so serious and determined, they can often appear to be standoffish, aloof, and rigid to the point of not being friendly and fun. Paired with being very focused on their family, they can sometimes be lonely without a large friendship circle.
Capricorn is a zodiac sign where the mystery of the darkest night and the glory of the light merge. They remind us that the crossing of the bridge of darkness must occur before one can reach the radiation of the great white light. It is the conquest of the self that is the ultimate goal of the Capricorn.
The stone lapis lazuli links to the soul for this zodiac sign. Lazuli is the stone associated with Saturn, the ruling planet of Capricorn, and is hence the planetary stone for Capricorn. Lapis lazuli is believed to stimulate a heightened state of awareness and expand perspective and hence keeps the ambitious Capricorn firmly grounded to reality.
