Re: Ancient Capricorn was a water sign

In Hellenistic astrology it was also known as a moist/watery sign alongside Cancer, Aquarius and Pisces - Dorotheus, Ptolemy, Hephaistio, Palchus and others.

Capricorn is universally licentious, but it is infertile according to most authors not because of Saturn, but because the image does not look to be able to have children (Sagittarius is infertile according to some for the same reason, even though Jupiter otherwise signifies fertility).

The constellation and sign are two different things.
That's a shame. Signs were also once images/living beings.
