The Personality Traits of a Capricorn
Goats are well known for being stubborn and this translates into both a positive and negative characteristic of Capricorns. The positive side of it is that it allows Capricorns to be extremely persistent. When faced with a challenge, they will not back down and will keep working at overcoming all obstacles in their path. They will not allow themselves to fail and will be focused on completing any type of task to the best of their abilities.
However, Capricorns are also realistic about what is possible and very rational. They will not bother wasting efforts on something that they know to be unachievable. Rather, they focus their considerable talents on completing what they know to be possible and that way avoid letting themselves or others down.
This also makes Capricorns highly dependable, which is a characteristic typical of Earth signs. By only taking on realistic tasks and then working at them diligently, you can be sure that a Capricorn will get the job done, and usually more efficiently than anyone else.
These traits also make Capricorns excellent at business and it is not unusual to find them in important positions. They know how to drive projects forward in a profitable manner and will quickly earn the respect of their higher ups.
Capricorns are known to be sophisticated people. They are polite and sensitive to others around them. Capricorns are happiest when surrounded by the best, both in terms of material things and people. They will seek to climb the social ladder, making friends who are of higher social standing, and look for those that are always mature and behave with dignity.
Whether faced with a difficult task or looking to reach a personal achievement, a Capricorn will be able to break down the route to success into logical steps and carefully plan and carry out each of them. Even if many of the steps are extremely difficult, a Capricorn will not be scared or back down, rather they will adopt a slow and steady wins the race attitude and tackle each step with care and logic.
Family is important to a Capricorn and most will look forward to starting one of their own. They will then work hard to provide for their family and ensure that they lead a comfortable life that is full of opportunities. As such, some will view Capricorns as too conservative or traditional, but this is really a misunderstanding of the Capricorn nature.
More problematic is a Capricorn’s tendency to become too focused on achieving their goals. They will work incredibly hard and often forget that they too need time to relax on occasion. If a Capricorn does not make a conscious effort to have some fun and let their hair down, then they may end up too serious and even neurotic.
The ruling planet of Saturn, which represents limitations, social order and conformity, furthers these traits. Capricorns will often have overcome great hardships in their life, and this too can make them appear humourless and too serious about the world around them. It can also make them highly intolerant to those who waste their time. A Capricorn wants to achieve things and recognises that time does mean money, so they can become highly irritated by those they perceive to be wasting either of the two.
In general, Capricorns are likely to have a battle to avoid becoming too serious. They will find it hard to forgive those who have deliberately wronged them, and are capable of holding a grudge for life. Furthermore, Capricorns will often view public displays of emotion as a sign of weakness and they will tend to keep things buttoned up. As a result, others may see them as cold and distant people. However, this is clearly not true; Capricorns are far from robots, they just prefer to keep things private and hidden. There is a further disadvantage to this that Capricorns should watch out for. When a Capricorn sees others having fun in what they view as a frivolous or irresponsible manner, they may have a desire to put an end to it.
In general, Capricorns have to remember not to be too judgmental of others and recognise that other people will have different priorities and a different way of navigating the world. However, with a little self-awareness, they can turn their analytical capabilities and impressive work ethics into a means of advancing themselves without the risk of alienating others and enjoy significant success in all areas of life.
How Capricorns Treat Love and Relationships
Due to the ruling influence of Saturn, a Capricorn knows that relationships can be hard work and they will be prepared to rise to the challenge. They are interested in long-term commitments and know that even the best of relationships will have their ups and downs. They approach relationships with eyes wide open and a sense of realism that can come across as unromantic but can save a great deal of heart ache.
However, at the same time Capricorns are extremely loving people and look forward to finding their perfect match. As people who like the best, they will love going out on dates to fancy restaurants, and will enjoy the formality of the early stages of dating. As traditional people, they may expect to follow traditional practices, such as having the man pay for the date. However, they are not inflexible and they will see the value in different approaches.
Capricorns thrive in structured environments and this extends to their romantic lives. They may look for regular date nights and will be keen to establish a routine to the relationship. However, they will want this routine to include plenty of time with their partner, and in particular, they will look for a lot of one-on-one time.
Capricorns are not interested in playing games with relationships. They believe in monogamy and are not afraid of committing when they feel that they have met the right match. They can fall deeply in love and will be looking to start a family as quickly as possible. However, as realists, they know that relationships require work, and they will be happy to put the work in, no matter how difficult it may appear. They want to address problems and fix them with honesty, trust and work from both sides.
Capricorns will often find themselves drawn to Fire signs, a combination that on paper should not work. Fire signs (Aries, Leo and Sagittarius) appeal to Capricorns’ need for excitement and a suppressed desire to break out of routine. They are curious about the unknown and part of them finds wild things irresistible. Furthermore, they will view the nature of Fire signs as a challenge, and part of them believes that they will be able to tame them and make them into a perfect partner. However, a Fire sign is likely to find this stifling while a Capricorn will eventually become frustrated by a Fire sign’s unpredictable nature. This doesn’t mean that the relationship cannot work. Each needs to give the other their own space and recognise the need to meet in the middle. Capricorns can be spontaneous and Fire signs can follow a routine; as always, the secret to success lies in compromise.
Both Earn and Fire signs value respect, so as long as each feels that their partner is giving them the respect they are owed, then compromise can be found and the relationship will have a chance to flourish.
That said, there are other signs that are likely to be a far better match for a Capricorn. Both Capricorn and Taurus believe that family is of the upmost importance, will have clear goals, and will be good at planning how to achieve them. Furthermore, both signs are passionate within their relationship but believe it should remain private, ensuring a lasting long-term connection. Similarly, Virgos are extremely loyal people who believe in passion and predictability. They will happily follow the kind of a routine that a Capricorn needs to thrive. A Pisces will appeal to a different side of the Capricorn nature. They can help them learn to embrace their imaginations and not be afraid to follow their dreams, even if they do seem slightly unpractical. Furthermore, the two are capable of fully committing to one another and building a foundation that will last a lifetime
Capricorns can be seen as cold, distant and arrogant, but when understood properly, a Capricorn will prove himself/herself to be kind, loving, and an excellent partner who will thrive within a relationship and bring great happiness to their family.
Capricorns’ Approach to Career and Money
Capricorns are driven people who are not afraid of hard work. They are determined to succeed, and this if of course a fantastic asset when it comes to work. When presented with a task they will approach it slowly, steadily and methodically, making sure that they do not make mistakes and that it is completed as efficiently and effectively as possible. They are not procrastinators, but rather tackle jobs head on and aim to finish them as soon as realistically possible.
Capricorns are not afraid of major projects and are happy to shoulder a great deal of responsibility. They will thrive under pressure and will love challenging tasks that require them to utilise all of their skills. Furthermore, they are good at compartmentalising and they will not allow their personal lives to interfere with the professional. As a boss, they expect the same standards from those under them, but they are also fair and won’t penalise people for things that are truly beyond their control.
However, they will be frustrated by what they perceive as unfairness in the workplace. For instance, if someone appears to be advancing at a faster rate while not working as hard. Furthermore, they may struggle with projects that require out the box thinking and they may become too hung up on the rules, especially when a little creative thinking would produce better results. As a result, they may be passed over for promotion when bosses are looking for leaders who are able to adapt and innovate.
However, a Capricorn will not struggle with office politics. They are able to recognise the games being played around them and are capable of playing them. As a result, they will not struggle to find a job and will have no problems holding one down. In general, they are suited for detail-orientated work, especially roles that require research, such as lawyers, financial advisors, or anything in the sciences.
When it comes to money, Capricorns will find it easy to earn money and they are excellent at saving it. Their analytical approach to life means that they can spot good investment opportunities and they will always be planning for the future. Furthermore, they are excellent at spotting deals and will look for areas where they can make savings, even if they don’t strictly need to. For example, they may spend a long time comparing prices and reading reviews before making a purchase, and they will refrain from spending money unnecessarily, often to the point that will view things such as takeaway coffee as an unnecessary extravagance.
A Capricorn may be good at investing and putting money aside, but they will not take financial risks. This means that while they are often very comfortable, they may not take the risks that are sometimes needed to accumulate vast wealth. However, with the right advice and a bit of planning, they should be able to devote some funds to riskier ventures, opening up the possibility of even greater rewards.
How Capricorns Responds to Friends and Family
Capricorns truly believe in traditional family values and they will feel a real connection to their past and childhood. This means that they look forward to any kind of family gathering and after starting their own family, they will work hard to keep everyone close and content. In regards to their children, they will be strict but fair, and not shy away from the responsibilities that come with parenthood.
Capricorns will also take their friendships very seriously and are truly loyal to those that they accept in their inner circles. They will always be ready to provide advice, and will happily take care of their friends in whatever way they can, including the practical when necessary. At the same time, Capricorns expect a lot from their friends and will not shy away from letting others know if they have let them down. They will not let poor behaviour go by uncommented on and will also gently remind friends when they have let them down in a minor way, such as by forgetting a birthday.
Capricorns recognise that they are not usually the ‘fun’ friend, but they have the confidence to recognise that they have a lot to offer others. They will often inspire and challenge their friends, and they are looking to receive the same in return.
Taurus’ can be particularly good friends for Capricorns. Both signs enjoy routine and they are both excellent at pursuing goals. While both signs have the ability to be stubborn and unforgiving, they are big hearted and are able to work through any differences that may arise. Furthermore, they may have the self-awareness to laugh at each other together.
Capricorns make fantastic friends for a number of reasons. They are extremely loyal and will do almost anything they can to help. They will remember everything (or at least make a note of everything), so they will never forget birthdays, they will know their friends’ preferences, and will do their best to accommodate them. Furthermore, they are able to recognise true talent in others and are excellent at bringing it out.
With their excellent work ethic and their desire to achieve success, it is no surprise that there are many celebrity Capricorns.
