Astrological Royal XIII - East merges with West Capricorn and the Year of the Goat
The Zodiac of China and Rome align easily with a few signs like Leo-Tiger, Ox-Bull, Sheep-Ram, and Snake-Scorpion. But Capricorn and the Year of the Goat are the odd balls. They are both Janus-faced signs that align with two Zodiac Signs.
Coincidentally both the Goats from the Eastern and Western Zodiac have two forms. In the West we have a Goat and a mythical Seagoat. Which is correct?
It seems the debate will go on forever, but the key is that there are two forms for Capricorn. Amazingly in the Eastern Chinese Zodiac the same thing happens with the Year of the Goat, which is often referred to as the Year of the Sheep. Which is correct the Goat or Sheep?
Ask an astrologer from the East and you'll be caught in the same conundrum as it is with Capricorn. Some will pick a side, some will say both, some will say it depends, and some will say it does not matter.
But in the big picture, the harmonious synchronicity is that the essence of the goat exists in both the Eastern and Western Zodiac. And a second layer of synchronicity is added that both goats and have two 'competing' forms. With this layer of charm, Capricorn has been blessed with two Zodiac Royal partners: The Year of the Goat/Sheep and The Year of the Pig.
From the other Eastern point of view, the animal positioned in between The Year of the Monkey and The Year of the Horse also has two Royal Partners: Capricorn and Aries. How harmonious is that?
Thus a person born during the Year of the Goat-Sheep and under the sign of Capricorn or Aries is an Astrological Royal - by being an Aries Royal or Capricorn Goat Royal, respectively.
But in order to distinguish between the two types of Capricorn Royals a slight variance in name is in order. Capricorn to Year of the Pig Royals are simply Capricorn Royals, but Capricorn to Year of the Goat matches should be called Capricorn Goat Royals.
Famous Capricorn Goat Royals include: former UN Boss Javier Perez de Cullar, Martin Milner of Route 66, Dian Fossey who studied the Gorillas in Central Africa, Joseph Cardinal Zen a Chinese Cardinal in East Asia, Dabney Coleman, singer John Denver, actor Ben Kingsley, president of Sudan Omar Hasan Ahmad al-Bashir, Led Zepplin lead Jimmy Page, boxer Joe Frazier, Shelley Fabares, fomer leader of Australia Paul Keating, actor director Mel Gibson, Iron Chef Chen Kenichi, talking head Bill Maher, actor David Caruso, leader of Georgia the Nation Mikheil Saakashvili.
Other famous stars include: Patrick Dempsey, Diego Luna, rapper Yelawolf, Richie Faulkner, actress Rachel Nichols, actress Zooey Deschanel, Jason Segel, Eden Sher, Chloe Bridges, US Olympian and Dancing with Stars Champion Shawn Johnson, Logan Lerman, and Kaitlyn Maher.
Coincidentally as the actors who play Spock and Captain Krik are Astrological Royals, fate has it the doctor of the Enterprise, DeForest Kelley is a Capricorn Goat Royal. Thus all three main characters of the original Star Trek television series are Astrological Royals - and all three are Royals under the Janus-faced Year of the Sheep/Goat. Finally one more original Star Trek Astrological Royal - Sulu, played by George Takei is a Taurus Royal.
