Capricorn

Your Most Likable Trait: STEADINESS

The Sun is in this tenth sign of the zodiac from 23 December until 20 January every year. The symbol of Capricorn is the Goat. Capricorn is associated with the harshness of winter and its stark realities. In Capricorn, the Sun is strongly goal-directed and persistent. Ambitious, serious and dedicated to duty, life is difficult, but you are the type of person who will triumph and achieve success. Your aptitude to persevere, no matter how difficult the road, sets you apart from most of your peers. You are anxious to climb the ladder of fortune, and you can usually reach your goals because of your sense of the right way of doing everything. Your patience is never ending.

You are a very thoughtful and serious person, thinking everything through carefully before you set off in any direction. You possess excellent reasoning skills, and you can be counted on to select options that are both practical and that provide an economic advantage. Your attitude is conservative; conservative with time, money, and all other resources. Your philosophy is waste not, want not. You are also likely to be conservative in your political and social attitudes, although your age, upbringing, and education perspectives may influence this somewhat.

You are especially well suited to business and government because of your sense of organization and structure. You combine a talent for management with an ability to carry out instructions with care. You are the quintessential careerist, taking job and duties very seriously. Therefore, you are never one to shirk responsibility and you have very little use for those that do. That which matters most to you is your public image. You show your best face to the public. You enjoy being in a position of power and authority, although you are not very much inclined to enjoy the limelight. You may prefer instead to run your business from an isolated perspective. You are loyal and dedicated, and you demand utter loyalty and dedication from subordinates. Advancing up the ladder of success is all important. You are unconcerned about, sometimes even ruthless toward, those getting in your path as you move upward.

You don’t handle chaotic situations very well. You may need to develop the ability to lighten up a little and not take life, and everything else so seriously. Although you are self-disciplined, responsible, and practical, at times you can wallow in self-pity. It’s essential for you to remember that your most important asset is self-esteem, and you should never devalue this. Rigidity and fear of change may be your biggest stumbling block.

Sober and reserved in your dealings with others, it takes you a good while to warm up enough to anyone to be considered a close friend. Yet once you do, you are a very caring, reliable, and most steadfast ally. Your private side is different from your public side. In private you are shy and sensitive. The harshness of your public image disappears. Emotionally demanding relationships are very difficult. Love relationships may be more like business relationships, and you are unsure of yourself in most intimate situations.

THE INNER YOU

You don’t need anyone to convince you life is serious business; you’ve known it all along. That’s what keeps you anxiously asking yourself: Am I fulfilling my responsibilities? Am I achieving as much as I should? Am I self reliant enough? You know you have the persistence and strength of purpose to reach your goals. But you also have a deep need to connect on an emotional level in your relationships so that you don’t feel separated from those you care about. You worry about keeping all that is valuable to you- which includes relationships. Despite your intelligence and the fact that you’re determined, you often feel insecure. You’re a bundle of conflicting emotions. You require discipline and order–chaos drives you crazy and makes you doubt yourself and what you’re capable of. But maybe the gods meant for you to have some doubt; if you believed you;re as powerful as you really are, you’d be impossible to live with.

HOW OTHERS SEE YOU

You are often sen as an irresistible force and immovable object. People put you in charge because you are decisive-you’re famous for having a great sense of realism. When others need a rational head in a crisis- they call you. In personal relationships, some friends will stand in line to unload their problems on you, others avoid you because they think your outlook is too downbeat. Everyone agrees that it is difficult to divert you from your coarse when you have set a goal. Some people feel that in order to find the real you they have to strip away layers of secrecy, but most understand that your aloofness stems from a deep sense of personal privacy.

CAPRICORN DECANS

Each Star Sign of the Zodiac can be divided into three subsections called Decans. Each Decan roughly corresponds to 10 degrees or 10 days of the Star Signs time period. Decans can provide a more detailed account of an individual’s personality traits and character and reveal how people born under the same Star sign can be very different. The Capricorn personality can differ according to which one of the Capricorn Decans an individual is born under:

If you were born between December 22 and January 1

This is the first of the Capricorn Decans and is ruled by the planet Saturn. The first Decan Capricorn personality is characterised by patience, determination and hard work. Capricorns are always hard working but this applies even more so to the first of the Capricorn Decans. You also have the determination, strength and will to complete any worthwhile project. You have tremendous patience but this is tested by ‘airy fairy’ people who have their head in the clouds and have fanciful ideas. This is because you cannot relate to them as you are well grounded with your feet firmly on the ground. You like to get the job done, rather than dreaming about it. You are extremely loyal and devoted to those you love and will strive to provide material wealth and security for them. Material wealth is important to you as it firstly shows others how successful you are and thus commands their respect. You value the respect from others, rather than their affection or love. Material wealth also allows you to spoil those you hold dear. You have the potential to be in careers that allow you to be very successful and powerful. You can be very competitive in the workplace and with your dogged determination will never lose sight of the prize. The main flaw in this first Decan Capricorn personality are that you can be the victim of low moods, depression or mood swings.

If you were born between January 2 and January 11

This is the second of the Capricorn Decans and is ruled by the planet Venus. The second Decan Capricorn personality is characterised by charm, creativity and adaptable. Of all the Capricorn Decans you are by far the most charming and sociable. You collect a lot of good friends throughout your life, as they like your company. Your creative skills are many and you can create great success for yourself by using them wisely. Your relentless ambition combined with your hard work will allow you to climb to very top of any profession you choose – so long as it uses your creativity. You take the view that if a job is worth doing, it’s worth doing well. This applies not just to your career path but also to your friendships and love relationships. You cultivate and maintain your relationships with 100% loyalty, attention and affection. The main flaw in this second Decan Capricorn personality is pessimism. Your pessimistic streak can sometimes overtake you and can lead to low moods.

If you were born between January 12 and January 20

This is the third of the Capricorn Decans and is ruled by the planet Mercury. The third Decan Capricorn personality is characterised by intelligence, loyalty and discipline. You like your world to be ordered, structured and disciplined. You have little time for fanciful notions and abstract concepts. Although you do enjoy the finer things in life and admire beautiful things, you need them to have a practical and functional use as well. Of all the Capricorn Decans you are the most intelligent and if you are able to override your innate shyness can become a gifted communicator. Your intelligence coupled with your desire to accomplish makes you ideally suited to careers that demand shrewdness and attention to detail. The Legal profession, law enforcement and teaching are all areas that you can excel in. You are tremendously loyal and faithful in all your relationships. Once you have placed your trust in someone and allowed them into your life you will fully commit to them. The main flaw in this third Decan Capricorn personality is a tendency to dwell on the past and hold grudges.

CAPRICORN LOVE COMPATIBILITY

Capricorn and Aries Love Compatibility

Not a hopeful combination. Saturn, represented by Father Time, is the Capricorn’s standard bearer. The Aries is a restless,fiery, impulsive experimenter. The Capricorn is on the contrary sanctimonious person. Capricorn needs to dominate and so does Aries. Problems also crop up over money Aries is extravagant, Capricorn is security minded. Capricorn is a simple soul and Aries may be too overwhelming; Aries will take risks and enjoy them while the same risks will make Capricorn shudder. Some very violent quarrels can erupt due to this and the many other personality conflicts. Aries will not like the pessimistic gloom that Capricorn use to dampen the Aries enthusiasms. The Capricorn can prefer only one pose for making love or even the certain time. However, the Aries can take the initiative under his/her own control. If it takes place, a marriage is more preferable then a short connection.

Capricorn and Taurus Love Compatibility

Both partners having mutual understanding of each other’s personalities. Both the Capricorn and the Taurus like money, and sure that the safety is really important. While the Taurus is a patient person the Capricorn is ready to work for both of them. Taurus can get through to aloof, cautious Capricorn and give the encouragement and responsiveness needed. Both have earthy, passionate natures, and sensual Taurus can tap the deep well of romanticism that lies under Capricorn’s reserve. This couple can conceive everything in the field of sex – every idea will come truth. Capricorn’s sexual appetite can be either over indulgent, or he/she may abstain altogether if affected by outside pressures. Taurus will need to be sensitive to Capricorns tension and be willing to discus it and ease his burden of guilt he/she may feel because of it. There are perfect prospects for that couple and it can turn out to be a very compatible marriage.

Capricorn and Gemini Love Compatibility

They have different sexual natures. The Saturn ruled Capricorn will be at odds with the Mercury ruled Gemini. The Gemini are usually easy-going, amorous people, while the Capricorn are sluggish, devoted, cautious. Capricorn will have a hard time holding the reins on excitable, flirtatious, wayward Gemini. All of Capricorn’s patience is needed to deal with a partner it considers to be capricious, extravagant, and scatterbrained. In order for the sexual relationship to be a success, Gemini will have to distract Capricorns mind from his/her career and the problems that go with it. The initial interest can not last very long.

Capricorn and Cancer Love Compatibility

The Capricorn is not able to pay very much attention to the partner, and it doesn’t meet the Cancer’s wishes. The Capricorn has too much other interests. Both are good money managers and are unlikely to have many financial problems. Waste is an offense to Capricorn as is extravagance. Capricorn is a faithful and devoted mate which the more positive type of Cancer can be content with, even if life does get a little boring at times. However, there are a strong sexual attraction exists between these two signs. In a bedroom everything will be perfect, until Cancer feels bored with a practicality and restraint of the Capricorn. The connection is unstable, the marriage is undesirable.

Capricorn and Leo Love Compatibility

Ordered, organized Capricorn neither understands nor approves of Leo’s exuberant impulsiveness. Leo forgives and forgets; Capricorn being the one who is slow to anger and seldom forgets. The Leo supposes that the Capricorn is full of love and spends it too economically. The Capricorn for his/her turn is also not the best partner for the Leo because of his/her poor imagination. The Capricorn is much more passionate in bed. They not fit each other in the bedroom. They are both representatives of independent signs of the zodiac that inclined to dominate in everyday life. These two are almost complete opposites and in case of a love affair their distinctions can appear insignificant, but in case of marriage they will never be happy together.

Capricorn and Virgo Love Compatibility

Virgo’s neat orderly mind meshes well with Capricorn’s self-discipline and capacity for hard work. Both take pride in their home, enjoy having a few close friends rather than many acquaintances, and admire each other’s intellectual abilities. The Caoricorn’s practicality suits the Virgo’s accuracy perfectly. There are possible misunderstandings in the field of sex, but they know and feel each other so well, that these misunderstandings don’t disturb them. They are both – clever, conservative and patient. This relationship could suffer from lack of romance, as both tend to be a bit reserved in this area. Generally there is a good basis for a long union.

Capricorn and Libra Love Compatibility

Capricorn has a strong sexual interest in the Libra. Libra in her/his part likes the Capricorn’s aspiration to earn money. However, the Libra’s propensity for laziness irritates the Capricorn who got used to work without a rest. As a result the Libra will be dissatisfied by a Capricorn’s sober practicality. The Capricorn wouldn’t like Libra’s constant attempts to be center of everyone’s attention. Capricorn will even bring his/her work to bed, literally, and it will be up to Libra to distract him/her long enough for sexual relations to take place. A sign such as Libra is not about to put up with this for very long before greener pastures are sought out. There is too big personal incompatibility for a successful marriage.

Capricorn and Scorpio Love Compatibility

This union means successful sexual mutual relationships. Scorpio is the more imaginative lover, but Capricorn’s stamina is a delightful match. Scorpio’s possessiveness spells security to Capricorn. These two work well as a team – Capricorn is highly organized and Scorpio has native shrewdness. The Scorpio is more inventive, while the Capricorn is more patient. Their success in bedroom opens some interesting opportunities. The representatives of both signs have strong will, but the Scorpio is inclined to dominate. The Capricorn must understand, that it happens because of the Scorpio’s great love. The connection is usually passionate and marriages are successful.

Capricorn and Sagittarius Love Compatibility

Unless Sagittarius can clip their wings a bit, there is strong warning against this combination. The Capricorn loves making love in some certain places while the Sagittarius is ready to do it everywhere. The Capricorn is cautious and conservative. He/she always worries about safety. The Sagittarius is a careless and irresponsible player. The Sagittarius will be irritated by the close-fisted Capricorn. Their sex life is very apt to be frustrating for both parties, although Sagittarius will feel this more keenly than Capricorn. This is not the best connection, and will end up as unsuccessful marriage in the future.

Capricorn and Capricorn Love Compatibility

Capricorn approves of people like him/herself, so with these two there’s no lack of mutual respect and regard. Both are cautious, reserved personalities who work hard and love to save money. The biggest problem here will be keeping things lively and new. They are both alike in their values and many of their actions. Things could become too serious for too long and stubbornness could cause some alienation. Capricorn needs a more carefree, light hearted sexual partner to keep his/her interest in bedroom affairs stirred up and with these two signs there is not likely to be any kind of love life to speak of, as they will be mentally working on their careers rather than on each other. This is not the best match and not very exciting marriage as a result.

Capricorn and Aquarius Love Compatibility

Both signs have a strong sense of self, but Aquarius wants to be free and Capricorn wants to dominate. They will find out soon that their romance has turned into a friendship. it is uneasy for the Capricorn to cope with the Aquarius in intimate affairs. The Aquarius is a inventive, free-will person. He/she can’t long be in love with the practical Capricorn. Aquarius is continually on the go and likes to spend money. Capricorn considers that frivolous and tries to impose strict controls. Aquarius may go through a number of jobs, searching for the right challenges but Capricorns’ need for financial security is so strong that this will horrify him/her. This is not a satisfactory connection, and marriage will require efforts.

Capricorn and Pisces Love Compatibility

The Pisces will probably try to cheat on the Capricorn, because it is in their character, but the Capricorn is able to cope with it and will be the leader in bed. The Pisces will soon decide to follow him/her. The Pisces are affectionate and sincere creatures and can make the Capricorn’s life full of joy. Capricorn provides a ballast for Pisces’s drifting dreaminess and supplies the stability that Pisces needs and admires. And there’s nothing Capricorn likes better than being admired. These very different people supplement each other emotionally. It is a good combination with complimentary values. They will find comfort in one another providing Capricorn displays his/her emotions at least once in awhile. There is very good forecast for these relationships.
