Capricorn Sign Characteristics

Like its sign goat, Capricorn is steady and confident as it climbs to the top, ever reaching higher and higher. And it does reach the top. Capricorn has organizing and managing skills and it like such careers. It sets goals, being full aware of all the necessary steps required to succeed, and continues to get there. Nothing gets in the way of their plans and ambitions. But it feels loneliness at the top.

Its ruling planet is Saturn, therefore Capricorn has great power of self-control. They are independent people. They like to plan their every move, weighing all the pros and cons of any issue in advance. Capricorn has attitude of "work first, play later", many times forgetting to "play later". Work is very important to them and they do not take it lightly. For them, work is the best medicine for their every problem. It is difficult for a Capricorn to really relax. They are happiest when busy, even in their spare time. They try to get security by holding fast to duty and responsibility. Many Capricorn persons have an inferiority complex and this sometimes is what makes them to work hard to succeed.

They have the fear of being without material things, therefore it is necessary for them to have a regular income. Their achievements in life are accomplished through gradual progress rather than through quick-rich schemes. They have strong self-discipline and nothing turns them from their course if their mind is made up. They will sacrifice many pleasures in order to reach their goals. Hard work energizes them. They are economical and like to collect things. They dislike waste. This includes wasting a lot of talk in idle talks. They speak when they have something to say.

From their quiet, silent and reserved outlook, Capricorn persons appear to be loners. They build a wall around them to protect themselves from the ill winds of the world. They can be very sensitive to hurts and feel alone as if no one understands them. They need people, but they have a tendency to isolate themselves from people due to their fear of being hurt. They can be very loyal to close friends and people they care about. Respect and recognition is important to them. Encouragement and praise are essential for motivating a Capricorn.

The ruling planet of Capricorn is Saturn, therefore it has a cold, dark side. It is gloomy and has fear of failure. Capricorn person can be creative but it must learn to overcome its self-doubts and lack of confidence. It must protect itself from depression. Pessimism in its own abilities can send them back. They must learn to believe in themselves and become optimistic. There is no mountain they cannot climb if they desire to do.

Capricorn persons have a lot of patience, which is good, because many of their plans meet with delays, setbacks and obstacles. This teaches them obedience, which can help them for spiritual achievements.

They are dependable, particularly in a crisis. When asked, they give sound, practical advice. They are, not aggressive people, and only express hostility as a defense when attacked. They want to look good in front of the world. There is a "fatherly" or humanitarian side of Capricorn, and it wants to contribute something to society once it has obtained its goals. Their own personal sufferings help them identify with the sufferings of others.

Capricorn is sometimes selfish, looking for benefits and higher position. It uses all earthly resources for the climb, even using people when necessary, but its appearance is calm and cool. Capricorn knows diplomacy very well, and tells "white lies." This means that although Capricorn is dependable, it also has a tendency to be dishonest (directly opposite of Sagittarius, who lacks diplomacy and tact but is honest).

In love, Capricorn persons are as romantic and emotional as anyone else, but usually they feel shy in expressing their emotions. They are very careful in making a total commitment until they know that the personality and lifestyle of the possible partner are compatible with theirs. Once married, they seldom divorce because they feel that any situation can be worked out, only enough effort is required.
