Dates – When are Capricorn People Born?

Capricorn is the star sign of anyone born between December 22 – January 19. This astrological sign is represented by The Devil card in Tarot, reflecting their feelings of restriction, of being unable to ‘break-out’ of the structures and limitations imposed by their ruling planet Saturn. The greatest limitations on Capricorn are their own expectations of themselves, yet like The Devil card shows, they have the choice to break free at any time.

Temperament – What are the Characteristic Capricorn Personality Traits?

Capricorn’s element is Earth making them practical, reliable and down to earth. Their ruling quality is Cardinal which accounts for their driving ambition and leadership skills. In fact, Capricorn is considered to be the zodiac sign of ambition and achievement. Those born under this star sign are ruled by the planet Saturn which explains their self-discipline and ability to achieve their goals regardless of obstacles that may come their way.

Like the Goat that represents this sun sign, the true Capricorn is consciously focused on climbing the mountain – whether the preceived ‘mountain’ is career or a long-held ambition. They are said to be the most dutiful of all the star signs and certainly the most single-minded! Success is crucial to Capricorns and the more successful they become the happier and more confident they are. However, given their pessimistic nature, they still like to complain!

Despite their serious nature, their single-mindedness and, what is often seen as an austere character, Capricorn’s saving grace is their wonderful sense of humor, which is both offbeat and witty. As they get older they become less serious, more optimistic and way more fun. Saturn’s influence on those born under Capricorn is major – and it is this influence that has helped to create some of the most successful, self-made people, in the world.

Compatibility – What Sun Signs are Most Compatible with Capricorn?

Perhaps it is the influence of the mountain goat intent on climbing great heights, that makes Capricorn a little shy and to some extent, aloof. Their dedication to work means this star sign has less time for play, making it difficult for you to meet a mate. The ideal situation for Capricorn is to meet their partner at work – and their perfect partner is someone who shares their desire for success and who isn’t afraid of hard work. Like everything this astrological sign does, their standards are high and they are slow to commit. When they do commit, their chosen one can be confident of being loved for life! Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn, with their hidden passion and earthy sensuality, are their ideal match for Capricorn.

Work – What is the Best Career Choice for Capricorn People?

Work is where Capricorn sun sign comes into his or her own! Whether working for a large company or locked away in the managing director’s office they are likely to work longer and harder than anyone else. Those born under this star sign work well with others, provided everyone knows Capricorn is the leader of the team. In the ideal work, Capricorns own their own business and can be found at the centre of many true-life ‘rags to riches’ stories. The longer this sun sign can run things on their own the better and they need to be very sure before going into partnership with others. Be aware that your unbending nature and conscientious approach to work are not always shared by others.

Ruled by the element earth and the structured and self-disciplined planet Saturn means careers like research, copywriting, Corporate CEO, business or financial analyst suit Capricorn. However, this zodiac sign also has a creative side which is often ignored in terms of a career – yet they can excel at painting, photography, writing and interior design.

Wellness – What Health Issues do Capricorn People Have?

Capricorn’s most difficult time, healthwise, is in the early years. Once they reach puberty, they become stronger and, are the longest living of all the zodiac signs. The parts of the body ruled by the astrological sign of Capricorn are the teeth and the joints. Bearing this in mind, make sure to visit your dentist regularly!

Many Capricorns are excellent athletes, including boxers Muhammad Ali and Joe Frazier and golfer Tiger Woods. To avoid developing stiff joints as they get older, take plenty of exercise – walking, running, jogging will all help to keep Capricorn mobile. Keeping warm is also important and many Capricorns enjoy particularly good health when they live in the sunshine.
