Why is Capricorn The Devil Tarot Card?
The Devil is Capricorn’s Major Arcana card. It makes sense. The Devil can sometimes mean obsession and Capricorns are insanely focused, mostly on their careers. They are preoccupied with success in this life. The Devil can represent the desire for material goods, for tangible things. Every Capricorn I’ve met has a darker side, a self-destructive side, probably because they put so much pressure on themselves, which is also represented by The Devil. On a more superficial level, The Devil has cloven hooves and so do goats, which are associated with Capricorns.
But there are other notable Capricorn Tarot Cards.
This is a bit of an odd one, but for me, as a reader, The Chariot represents Capricorn. Simply because Capricorn is all about success, about getting ahead. Literally, The Chariot means going places. Maybe you are trying to get a promotion, or a better job, or you want to buy a nicer house or car. Capricorns are never still, they are always chasing their dreams.
Six of Wands
Again, success is a huge trait for Capricorn. When this card shows up in your reading, you have been noticed for your hard work and excellence. This is a card about getting a promotion or more money. This is also a card associated with Leo.
Two of Pentacles
So, the Two of Pentacles means you have a lot of balls in the air. You are juggling multiple priorities, which is a very Capricorn trait. Capricorn is always working on projects, side gigs, and trying to climb that ladder of success.
Three of Pentacles
Capricorns are ambitious and they work well with others. This is definitely a team work card, a cooperation card. Capricorns are willing to put in the effort to achieve their goals.
Four of Pentacles
I think of this card as saving for a rainy day. It’s protecting or guarding your resources. Being very careful about the things that are valuable to you. Capricorn’s manage their resources wisely. And…taken to an extreme, they can seem stingy to others.
Page of Pentacles
The Page of Pentacles offers you a golden opportunity. The Pentacle represents something valuable. All you have to do is accept it. Capricorns are always looking for success and they take advantage of the options and opportunities that come their way.
Queen of Pentacles
The Queen of Pentacles is very stable, grounded, and centered. This Queen is an exemplary employee. She has her life together as well. This is very successful, wealthy energy, which is perfect for Capricorn.
