In astrology, Capricornus or Capricorn (Latin: “Goat-horned”), is called the Goat. It is the tenth sign of the zodiac, governing the period from about December 22 to about January 19.
One explanation of the fishtail, with which the goat is often represented, is found in the Greek myth of Pan, who, to avoid the monster Typhon, jumped into the water just as he was changing into animal shape. The half above water assumed the shape of a goat while the lower half, the tail, assumed the shape of a fish.
