Capricorn and Cell Salt Calcarea Phosphorica
Unraveling the Zodiacal Secrets of Bone Strength
In the vast tapestry of astrology, our zodiac signs not only shape our personalities but also influence our health and well-being. In the case of homeopathic remedies, each one of Dr. Schuessler’s 12 cell salts, otherwise known as tissue salts or essential minerals, aligns with one of the 12 astrological signs and serves as a key to our health.
Capricorn, represented by the steadfast goat, holds a special place in the zodiac as the ruler of our skeletal structure. In this post, we delve into the intricate relationship between Capricorn and its corresponding cell salt, Calcarea Phosphorica, unveiling the secrets of bone strength and overall vitality.
Capricorn: The Goat of the Zodiac
Capricorn, pictured with its top half as a goat and the bottom half as a fish, is the tenth sign of the zodiac. The reason for its fish tale comes from the Greek myth of Pan. In this story, Capricorn jumped into the water to avoid the monster, Typhon, just as he was changing into his animal shape.
In astronomy, we refer to the constellation known as Capricornus. It resides in the southern sky between Aquarius and Sagittarius. Capricorn, which indicates its zodiac sign, governs the period of the year from December 22 to January 19. In our physical body, it governs the knees.
Interestingly, the Cabalistic numerical value of the letters G-O-A-T adds up to 12. Capricorn symbolizes dependability, seriousness, and a strong sense of structure. Ancient beliefs and stories depict the goat as a sacrificial creature, bearing the sins of humanity.
In the realm of astrology, Capricorn represents the foundation and framework of society, akin to the bones in our bodies—the essential support system upon which everything else rests. When our bodies are buried, the bones remain in the grave for a long time before they are converted back to dust.
“In the mountains of India, it is said, a tribe dwells, the priests of which claim that man’s complete history from birth to death is recorded in his bones. These people say the bones are secret archives, hence do not decay quickly as does flesh and blood.”

The Significance of Bones in Capricorn
Bones, as the foundation of our physical form, are composed mainly of phosphate of lime, otherwise known as Calcarea Phosphorica or Calcium Phosphate. This vital mineral is the building block of bones and teeth, ensuring their strength and integrity.
Saturn, the ruling planet of Capricorn, also symbolizes structure and stability. It plays the role of the record-keeper and mirrors Calcium Phosphate's function in maintaining stability and foundation within the body. According to Dr. Carey, the body requires more calcium than any other mineral.
Albumin, which is created in Aries, combines with calcium to form the basic parts of the body. Any deficiency in lime results in excess mucus, and thus is the root cause of colds. In this view, a cold is actually nature’s way of cleaning “house”, expelling surplus albumin.
This alignment, that Saturn rules the bones, emphasizes the intricate interplay between astrological symbolism and our physical well-being. Calcium Phosphate is essential for growth and well-being; no cells can be formed without it.
Without a proper balance of lime, bones cannot form adequately, leading to various health issues. Just as a building needs a solid foundation, our bodies require Calcium Phosphate for stability and overall health.
Calcarea Phosphorica: The Cell Salt of Capricorn
Calcarea Phosphorica is the second cell salt of Dr. Schuessler’s 12 cell salts. This essential mineral plays a crucial role in bone strength, teeth health, calcium absorption, and injury recovery. When deficient, it can lead to weak bones, dental problems, and various health issues related to our bones.
Think of it as the construction worker ensuring the strength and durability of the body's foundation. Beyond our bone’s foundation, a deficiency in this cell salt can also lead to other symptoms including sensitivity to artificial light, bad breath, anxiety, poor memory, and more.
Capricorn's Personality Traits and the Role of Calcarea Phosphorica
In the body, Saturn's vibration finds its match in Calcium Phosphate and stands for truth, stability, honest values, honor, and integrity. Those born under the Capricorn sign, with their traits of rigidity and dependability, find a parallel in the properties of cell or tissue salt Calcarea Phosphorica.
Just as the goat has a connection with bones, your Capricorn tendencies might lead you to experience health issues related to bone health and strength.
Understanding the importance of Calcium Phosphate can help everyone maintain their skeletal health and overall well-being. It can be used to help alleviate osteoporosis, brittle teeth, build the immune system, support your digestive health, and speed up recovery from a sports injury or illness.
Cell salt Calcarea Phosphorica is often recommended together with cell salts Calcarea Fluorica and Silicea (Silica) for the natural and healthy mineralization of bones and teeth.
