Capricorn Qualities and Characteristics
Being a Capricornian, you tend to quite introvert and reserved, and at the same time hard and sturdy in terms your personality. You make your way to your destination with slow and steady pace. You have a strength of character and your ambition is something that you wont be willing to part at any cost.
You are quite systematic and have a tremendous verve that you exhibit in everything you do. Your narcissistic approach towards life can get really unnerving for your mate and friends. You might also be restricted and misfortunes may come your way at various points, but this will make all the more strong and patient. You also tend to become orthodox and conventional at times, losing your broad-mindedness. While negotiating, you just cant believe someone until you have scrutinized the situation thoroughly, and you tend to lose out on a lot of effort and fun in this process.
You are symbolic of authority and industriousness and these qualities are bound to increase your earnings greatly. But refrain from getting into the rat-race for money and power, lest you lose out on the more important things in life. Your unemotional and too professional approach and your reticence towards your colleagues at gatherings will not help your fortune.
Qualities that make you lucky are common sense, steadfast, cooperative, and hardworking. Qualities that hinder your success are distrust, selfish, pessimistic, and conventional philosophy.

There is a divide right in the middle where personality is concerned, in case of Capricorn. There is the never-give-up always fighting, always moving, always gaining altitude kind of person and there is also the confined person with self-imposed restrictions, who likes to stay at one place and work for what he values the most. But these two kinds of personalities have some common traits, the most notable of them being that of complaining and grumbling.
Capricorn brings about a trait of not being contented with prevelant conditions, which is good in a way because it spurs people to do something about it, but it also brings about this other not so congenial and understanding side. Capricorns are very committed to their cause and are really good at getting what they want. There is a negative side to this too – they become successful and privileged and find that there are not a lot many people up there and it is not really possible to be friends with people who are not there – so they feel quite lonely. They are really good at coping up with this, but now this not something that can be completely taken out of the system, is it?
Capricorns are people who seem to be a little formal, a little out of place with their fun-loving background, but that is because they actually like to have the right thing in the right place. They like to climb the social and professional ladders and are not left behind in trying to impress their superiors and even loved ones. They have a different kind of sense of humor which is rather refreshing in a gathering or party.
In matters of love, even though they might seem a little too suited-up and unromantic, they make very good partners and very faithful spouses. The problem with them is that they might be a little too strict and formal even with their children. They might never wanna deviate from the formal methods, and expose their hard self a little too often. So, accordingly, the children might learn not to take them seriously, and this might be a serious cause of heartache for them. There is no doubt a lot of satisfaction to be had from professional and domestic spheres for them, but things can get a lot better if they learn to take things easy, and deviate from the norms.
Capricorn Friendship Compatibility
If you are a Capricorn, you will make really loyal and warm friends, who will be really happy for their friends’ successes and endeavors, even encouraging and helping them in their paths. Your friendships will be timeless ones in more than one way.
Firstly and more importantly, you will be able maintain the same warmth and closeness with friends even after losing touch for a long period. Once you have come to a level of closeness with a friend, you will never lose ground. But the other aspect of this timelessness is that you do not need to be of the same age as another person in order to make a connection and get close with him/her. You have the unthinkable power of appearing contemporary and striking up a conversation with anyone you find interesting. This goes a long way in making you popular.
You will be viewed at as a very valuable friend for your unparalleled loyalty and reliability. But as I have mentioned, you have a strong urge for telling your story. As soon as you feel they have come close enough, you will start letting things out. You will tell them how your life has been ruined by all sorts of people, how rotten the world is from inside, and how void of human dignity and honesty people are out in that world. But all this a result of your urge to share all you have inside you, whether good or bad, with those that you feel are close to you in your personal or professional sphere. If you have some good news, you will turn it into an occasion and celebrate it with your spouse or friends.
None of this means that you are not emotionally strong, you are probably more resilient than anyone else. You just need someone to laugh and cry with you, a shoulder to cry on, an ear to listen to your … you know! But what keeps you going in your friendships in spite of all this for years altogether is your easy accessibility and your affectionate side. Your friends will find it easy to empathize with you and give you handy advise at the right time.
Capricorn in Love and Romance
Capricorns are full of contradictions and peculiarities when it comes to matters of the heart. You want to love and be loved, but when the feeling starts to blossom in your heart, something always seems to stop you from acknowledging it and pursuing it. You might sometimes want to call it your cautious nature, but you never know. So, as you fancy, you will have a lot many close relationships instead of one very close, very meaningful one. You are very choosy in taking anyone into a relationship. And even when you do, it seems like you take it too lightly and too coolly – you do not seem to be passionate enough about it. This might not be the case from where you see it, but it would do your relationship a world of good if you evaluate yourself and try to find out how demonstrative you are being of your love for your partner, and if that should be enough to satisfy him/her.
The issue with you is that you are so involved in questions of practicality and possibility that you are unable to give yourself sufficient emotional freedom to express instinctively and having fun. This might spoil many an occasion. Taking nothing away from your ability to love someone and express it, you have the making of an excellent companion. The cool attitude is helpful in clearing out cobwebs – many people try to be cool but just can’t. But this cool attitude borders one of not caring, or so your companion might think. As a result, once you are in a relationship that you have selected after a long while, it might not be too warm for too long, as you would demand of it.
You have a great impulse to impress the one you love, and this might make you brag about yourself in ways that might embarras you later on. Here it would be helpful to make a hypothetical line on your head, and try not to cross it. This applies to expenditure on occasions as well. You happen to have excellent organizational skills so that you will surely plan everything out. But you might overdo a few things here and that which can irritate your lover. Otherwise, you will do just fine.
Capricorn in Marriage
When Capricorns choose someone to accompany you for the rest of your life, they are also ready to work hard at that relationship in order to make it work. The relationship means more to them than an instrument for raising a family, and having company in good and bad times. They attach a feeling of pride and accomplishment to success in marriage just as much as they do in case of professional success. That’s why they keep looking back throughout their life at the moments that defined their relationship and the milestones that you crossed in your journey together – they are more like prizes for you.
But when it comes to Capricorns, whether male or female, there is something called being too dedicated to one’s family. You are definitely determined to do all it takes to provide your family with everything they need and want, and you are also dedicated and up to the task with your tasks as such. Thus you might overexert yourself. For example, if a Capricorn mother is through with the first few years after childbirth, she might plunge into work straight away to make more money for the family. But in doing so, because of the workload and stress, if she has a breakdown, then the family will lose a lot. Such things may have a very permanent affect on the children and the marriage, when the sole objective to start with was the betterment of the children and the marriage. Patience, Energy and Love are more important to the relationship than money.
Capricorns happen to be disciplinarians, and thus excellent parent material. Now don’t get cocky, I said parent material not parents. They always tend to overdo things, and judge their children’s abilities against standards that are too high for them. Children thrive on encouragement, and instead of giving that, they may end up criticizing them and make condescending remarks. It will do these parents a whole lot of good if they took time to go and watch their child’s play, their boy’s ball-game, or their girl’s choir song and actually try to appreciate it. Believe me, you have made excellent choices in life, so that your children and wife will truly reflect and fulfil your demand for real quality.
Capricorn Career and Money
What appeals most to a Capricorn is to do one’s duty to the best of his/her capabilities irrespective of the circumstances. That might on some occasions mean giving up familial joy for an improvement in position or social status in the professional sphere (which is again indirectly aimed at the betterment of the family), and on other occasions mean letting go of career opportunities in order to be there for the family.
Capricorns are really loyal to their cause and have great respect for norms and traditions. This might sometimes make them lay low, when the world might think they have lost focus, but they will make that move according to plan nonetheless. They do not fear compromises and lean periods, they are accustomed to them; what they can’t bear is a feeling of having lost ground and having been unfulfilled on the long run – after all, that’s what they always strive for.
Professions such as surveying, farming and politics might interest them, as might professions related to geology and local governance. They are especially capable of making it to the top position of whatever trade they are in, and staying there in perfect harmony with the emotional demands and the internal forces of the organizations. They are actually made for the top job – they are not insecure, they are practical enough to take any kind of tough decision, they are disciplined enough to be in line and bring their subordinates in line, and they are faithful enough to the norms of the trade to work without many objections.Their only problem is that they might tend to get a little to predictable and bookish in their goings about at times; every job in every field requires some level of imagination.
Capricorns sometimes have a different kind of talent, very distinct from their line of work, or their pursued career. For example, a Capricorn may be good at playing an instrument and once in a while have a real impulse take it up as more than a hobby. In such cases, they need to be encouraged – this is what artists are made of.
