Symbols: Goat; Cornucopia; Stars
Presiding Goddess: Amaltheia
About Amaltheia: In Greek mythology, this she-goat goddess nourished Zeus as an infant. In later years, Zeus broke off one of her horns, which became the cornucopia, providing sustenance for all earth's creatures. For her diligence and service, Amaltheia was transformed into the constellation Capricorn, where she remains.
To Do Today:
This astrological sign begins on the first day of winter with the power of logic and reason to guide action, balanced by a keen sense of humor when the going gets tough. Those born under this sign strive tenaciously for success, like the stubborn goat they are.
To improve your personal tenacity, make a paper horn filled with fruit. From now until the end of the year, eat a piece of fruit each day named after the area of your life in which you need Amaltheia's diligence. Take that energy with you each day so that by the end of the year you will achieve success.
Other ways of emphasizing Amaltheia's power include keeping the image of a goat (perhaps cut out of a magazine, or one made of stone) on your altar or in another place of honor today, carrying fortitude-inspiring herbs like ginger root and carnation, or tucking in your pocket for the day stones that inspire victory (like marble).
