Were you born on December 25th? If so, then according to Western astrology, your zodiac sign is Capricorn, the sign of the makara, or sea monster. This means that when you were born, the Sun was in the stars that make up the constellation known as Capricorn. Let's delve into the basics of your horoscope.

Capricorn Overview

Capricorn is known as मकर (makara) in Sanskrit, which translates to "crocodile." Like every sign of the zodiac, Capricorn has its unique traits. Let's explore them:

Sign of the Makara

Capricorn natives are peculiar and powerful. They possess great intelligence but often have a mean streak.

Ruled by Saturn

Saturn, the planet of karma, poverty, disease, austerity, and mysticism, rules Capricorn. Saturnine individuals are somber and mysterious.

An Earth Sign

Those with a Capricorn moon are grounded, thoughtful, and practical.

A Movable Sign

Individuals born under this sign are fluid, spontaneous, and fond of change.

A Feminine Sign

This makes Capricorn natives receptive, sensitive, and empathetic.

Capricorn's Preferred Gemstone is Blue Sapphire

Capricorn can also benefit from blue spinel and amethyst.

Traits of the Sun in Capricorn

In Western Astrology, a person's sign is determined by the position of the Sun. If you were born on December 25th, then you're considered a Capricorn. The influence of the Sun in your birth chart will vary depending on factors like its location in the houses and its relative position with other planets.

Here are some general traits often found in those with the Sun in Capricorn:

You are a Natural Businessperson

You are drawn to business, trade, and earning money. Independent and competitive business environments suit you well. However, be cautious of resorting to unethical practices. Giving a portion of your earnings to a good cause can reduce the tendency toward greed.

You Like to be on the Move

You love to walk and explore new places. Traveling is your joy. It's likely that you have friends from foreign lands, and you may excel in professions requiring regular travel.

You have Strong Digestion

You have a good metabolism and enjoy eating. This helps you maintain good physical health. According to Ayurveda, a strong digestion promotes overall wellbeing. Weak digestion can lead to various diseases.

You may Struggle to Live up to Your Full Potential

You have ambitious dreams and ideas, but often lack the motivation and willpower to see them through. Finding a mentor can help you properly channel your energies and increase the chances of realizing your full potential.

You are Likely to Have a Variety of Professions in Life

With diverse interests, you are inclined to pursue several careers throughout your life. However, be cautious about abandoning good opportunities solely out of boredom. You can always take up side jobs or hobbies without sacrificing financial stability.

Capricorn Careers

Capricorn natives are hard workers and can be found in a wide range of professions. Consider the following career options:

Recommended Careers

Anything stimulating to the intellect. Capricorns make excellent lawyers, writers, scientists, philosophers, professors, detectives, financial advisors, administrators, or industrialists.

Careers to Avoid

You may want to avoid careers that require extensive negotiation or compromise, such as sales, diplomacy, or sports management.

Capricorn Mantras

A mantra is a short phrase that uplifts and cleanses our mind, heart, and consciousness. Mantra meditation offers relief from suffering and negativity. Here are two mantras you can benefit from:

Capricorn Mantra: ॐ वामनाय नमः Om kurma-devaya namaha
