What Is Capricorn’s Tarot Card?

June 20, 2022

When it comes to Tarot and astrology, the two practices go hand-in-hand. Capricorn actually associates with five different Tarot cards: one Major Arcana card and four Minor Arcana cards. Not what you expected? Don’t fret! We’ll explain …

The Devil XV

The Devil is the 15th card in the 22-card Major Arcana section of the Tarot deck. This section is used to represent grand life moments, exciting new journeys, or big-picture outlooks on life. Now, The Devil is obviously not a welcomed card in most cases. So, why is it paired up with Capricorn?

Capricorn, a hardworking earth sign and also the ruler of the 10th House of business, career, and public image, is often symbolized as the “CEO” of the zodiac. This sign works hard so they can be at the top—at all costs. The Devil really picks up on this need to succeed as it signifies our toxic relationship with material things. While this can include partnerships, toxins and substances, it can also refer to materialism. 

Overall, The Devil equates to Capricorn’s greed for success, money, and management (control is a real thing with this sign). However, it’s not all bad! Capricorn has four other Tarot cards that highlight more of its positive attributes.

Minor Arcana Cards

2 of Pentacles

The 2 of Pentacles is a card of responsibility and changes in the material world. It hones in on Capricorn’s inevitable tendency to take on too many projects or responsibilities at one time.

On the flip side of this, the 2 of Pentacles also indicates Capricorn’s natural ability to mulit-task and, simply, get things done. So, they may get overwhelmed at times. But for the most part, they are better at helping others manage their life. 

3 of Pentacles

The 3 of Pentacles is a card of teamwork. In respect to Capricorn, this sign is definitely a workaholic, but they don’t need to work alone. In fact, they make excellent leaders and can often find ways to bring people together. This card celebrates Capricorn’s natural leadership skills. 

On the other hand, Capricorn can be difficult to work with—as they are single-minded in how things “should be done.” Learning how to listen to the opinions of others will be key. 

4 of Pentacles

The 4 of Pentacles represents stability … but also greed. This is in particular relation to money. Capricorn is very attuned to money and makes sure money is kept safe. Sometimes, this can be taken a bit far.

Queen of Pentacles

The Queen of Pentacles signifies someone who is not only compatible with others but who’s also a force to be reckoned with. This person knows exactly how to work a business room.
