Capricon, the upward climbing, forward-moving Mountain Goat, represents the 10th Sign of the Hindu Zodiac.  In Sanskrit, Capricorn, also called Makara or Makar, refers to a crocodile. It is also known as Karma Bhava, representing all types of professions or works a human does.

The Nakshatras of Uttara Ashadha, Shravana, and Dhanishta lie within Makara. Capricorn’s ruling planet, Shani (Saturn), moves the slowest among all the planets. Thus, it influences Capricorn-born people to act slowly after analyzing everything. Before taking action, they think about its effects multiple times.
