Capricorn Myths and Legends
Capricorn is the 10th sign of the zodiac, represented by a Goat with crooked horns and the hind parts of a Fish. The goat is Pan, the lusty and licentious god normally portrayed as a bearded, curly-haired human with legs, tail and horns of a goat. On plunging into the Nile to escape from the mighty Typhon, the father of dangerous winds, his upper part became wholly goat but the submerged parts changed into those of a fish. The story is remarkably like that of Pisces.
The Mythology: Pan, while fleeing a monster called Typhon, jumped into the river Nile. The part of him that was below water turned into a fish, while the rest of him above water, stayed as a goat.
