The Goat – Tenth sign

Capricorns are masters of self-discipline. As the last earth sign of the zodiac, they are extremely driven to succeed at whatever they set their mind to even in the face of the most challenging adversity. Giving up or admitting defeat is not an option for a Capricorn. They are achievement junkies and take on ever-increasing responsibilities. They are the martyrs and the champions, the chiefs and the generals of war. I chose to reference Joan of Arc for this portrait as I believe that she embodies the spirit of Capricorn perfectly. As a peasant girl in the 1400’s, she rose to lead the French army in a momentous victory at Orleans in 1429 that thwarted an English attempt to conquer France during the Hundred Years War. She became a martyr and a saint and is to this day is the national heroine of France. She was also a Capricorn, naturally.
