The Sign Capricorn: The Mountain or Sea Goat
On December 21 (the Winter Solstice), the Sun begins its month-long trek through Capricorn, assigned to the devil card of the tarot. Capricorn’s ruler Saturn is associated with the tarot’s final trump, the world card. The sign Capricorn belongs to the element earth. The tarot’s earth suit of disks or pentacles illustrates typical scenes related to work, finance, education and family life. Capricorn’s connection with Saturn and the devil has its roots in the symbolism of the Winter Solstice, the mythology of the Greek gods Kronos and Pan and the adversary Satan from the Book of Job.

Yes.Someone asked the same question not long ago but I forgot why?
I’ll come back though for more info!
Okay here it is and although it isn’t exactly what I was looking for it made some good points.
Perhaps the most misunderstood card of all the major arcana, the Devil is not really “Satan” at all, but Pan the half-goat nature god and/or Dionysius. These are gods of pleasure and abandon, of wild behavior and unbridled desires. With Capricorn as its ruling sign, this is a card about ambitions; it is also synonymous with temptation and addiction. On the flip side, however, the card can be a warning to someone who is too restrained, someone who never allows themselves to get passionate or messy or wild – or ambitious. This, too, is a form of enslavement. As a person, the Devil can stand for a man of money or erotic power, aggressive, controlling, or just persuasive. This is not to say a bad man, but certainly a powerful man who is hard to resist. The important thing is to remind the Querent that any chain is freely worn. In most cases, you are enslaved only because you allow it.
This card explores some very frightening things, things we are taught to view as evil or shameful. Like earthy materialism, sexual desire, valuables, food, or drugs. Lack of control, excess, obsession and raw ambition. At its absolute worst, this is either the addict or the stalker, totally obsessed, enslaved. At its best, this is a card about giving into impulse, cutting lose, going for the gold, climbing every mountain. Among all the cards, this is one of the most complex; interestingly because no other card is so one-sided. Most cards urge balance, unity, restraint, yin-yang. Not this card. Completely tilted toward the masculine, it is a card that revels in extremity. There is a convincing argument that this is the most powerful and dangerous card in the deck. Magically speaking, it is the one card in the deck that holds the secret of how to escape the material and temporal bonds of Earth. It is a very potent and fascinating card.September 12, 2010 at 1:22 pm #343634September 12, 2010 at 1:54 pm #343619September 12, 2010 at 2:19 pm #343607September 12, 2010 at 2:41 pm #343599
