Capricorn Astrological Sign Information
A Historical Reference Guide
This is the true, original analysis of astrology as pertains to Capricorn by Professor Fredrick White as written in “A Guide to Astrology”, published in 1901-1904. In other words, here is your information from the source; without the 100+ years of modern interpretation and commercial modifications by others.
This 100+ year-old manuscript has been cleaned up and somewhat paraphrased for an easier Third Millennium read. However, as promised, an image of the original, unaltered manuscript is also included. Ctrl+/- will adjust the size. For historical perspective and additional nuances, it is worth the read.
Information for this article was compiled from United States (U.S.) government archives.
