Capricorn, the tenth Sign of the Zodiac, is all about hard work. Those born under this Sign are more than happy to put in a full day at the
office, realising that it takes a lot of those days to reach the top. That's no problem, since Capricorns are both ambitious and determined
- they will get there. Life is one big project for these people, and they adapt to this by adopting a businesslike approach to everything
they do. Capricorns are practical, taking things one-step at a time and being as realistic and pragmatic as possible. The Capricorn-born
are extremely dedicated to their goals, almost to the point of stubbornness.The Goat is the Capricorn symbol, and an apt mascot for these
people. Goats love to climb to the top of the mountain, where the air is clear and fresh. In much the same way, Capricorns want to get to
the top of their chosen field so that they can reap the benefits of success; namely fame, prestige and money. Getting to the top is not
always easy, however, so it's likely that Goats will ruffle a few feathers along the way.
A true workaholic. Capricorn sees the world as a harsh and exacting arena. Always taking the most direct route. Not afraid of hard work. A tendency to be cold and snobbish.
Underneath that cold exterior is a very lusty and loyal friend. Frequently long-lived and healthy into old age. They are know as the "sage" later in life for they have lived
Capricorns are diligent, conscientious, hardworking and cautious, seldom allowing themselves any sort of permissiveness; this makes them among the most reliable people to
work with. You endure hardship well and can be very tolerant, slogging your way up life's steepest climbs and climb you must. You are highly ambitious and will work your way
up with patience and hard work - exactly like the mountain goat that represents your Zodiac sign. You have an admirable sense of discipline and a good head for managing finances.
Most of you are self-contained and tend to carve your own way. Those who know you well will admire you for your sense of duty, your selflessness in service and your devotion.
Although not exactly the centre of attraction at parties, you have a sense of humour that many find attractive. You are sure-footed and most of your productivity is the result
of the confidence you bring to your work. You tend to spend far too much energy in being the achiever. You also tend to be moody and fairly self-destructive.
It is the darker colours, the colours of night, that bring you luck. Black, brown, blue and grey will be good colours to wear, while in gems you should choose sapphire,
amethyst, garnet and black onyx. Numbers 1, 4 and 8 and those that add up to these prove lucky for Capricorns. Saturday is your lucky day. Saturn is your ruler and your
element is earth.
PROFESSIONAL AND MONETARY WELL-BEING Capricorns make good business people. Shrewd and hardworking, it is unlikely that you will take any rash decisions.
You are ambitious and even if you do not have a career of your own, you will make sure your spouse climbs the ladder. You are not up to too much competition and will work
at your own pace and deliver the best you can. Capricorns will do well in the fields of academics, industry and even agriculture. Dealing with antiques is also a good
profession for you. Money rarely comes to you as an unexpected windfall. It will come through hard work and it will come in a bit late. You should, however, settle down
comfortably by the time you are in your early forties.
Your ardent and incurabe romantic yearning for true love, which is checked by Saturn -- the stern planet of discipline. It commands you to be calm, practical and serious.
To top it all your practicality and sensibility ensure that you snag the right partner in marriage who can be a good parent and do you proud. Those belonging to the zodiac
signs of Taurus, Scorpio and Virgo will make good partners for Capricorns. Nevertheless, love for a stable home and loyalty towards the spouse are your primary concerns.
Man or woman, Capricorns love their home, but they are reverent about family ties -- be these their own or the ones created with the partner. If you marry a Capri then be
prepared to love your in-laws, no matter what. They seldom marry in haste and abhor divorce, but when it happens it is final.They are pretty good and strict parents always
concerned with the best for their children's future.
Capricorns can indeed be domineering, even egotistical, on their route to the top. They'll tell you it's part of being a leader with bright new ideas (in keeping with the
Cardinal Quality attached to this Sign).Capricorns are industrious, efficient, organised and won't make a lot of waves. They are scrupulous with details and adopt a rather
conventional posture in business and in life. These people prefer to play it safe, since this is the least risky route to the top, even if it takes a while.Thankfully,
Capricorns are also patient, and are happy to wait for their ship to come in. The flip side to this staid behaviour is that Goats can become quite unforgiving of those
who aren't as diligent or ambitious as themselves. Capricorns need to remember that they do need allies along the way, ambitious or otherwise. In any case, once Capricorns
receive the recognition and social status they so fervently crave, it's likely that all will be forgiven.
Capricorns tend to be mature and are amply blessed with common sense, two qualities that help them become successful. A combination of luck and hard work results in
Capricorns finding themselves on the top rung of whatever ladder they decide to climb. They should always remember, however, those who have helped them on their quest.
They are traditional (but not quite the conservatives some would suggest) and somewhat inhibited, prompting others to wonder if they can ever enjoy the success they
strive for. Rest assured, these people will be smiling inside.
The Element associated with Capricorn is Earth. No big surprise there. Caps are down-to-earth, in the sense that they're not interested in wild ideas or round-the-world
dreams. They would much rather stay put and get to work. Remember, these are the business people of the Zodiac, so in their sensible and economical way, they'll get up
every morning and see to it that their job is done well. While Caps can occasionally get a bit materialistic and greedy (they just want the rewards for all their hard
work), they are far too dignified and practical to get carried away. Plus, they love tradition and reserve and want to appear polite and friendly.
Capricorn at rest enjoys leisurely sports, like golf or croquet - as long as they still have a chance to win. Playing with a crew is also nice, since it brings to mind
their beloved workplace. Team colours for a Capricorn are likely to be earthy brown and khaki, much like the classic, relaxed slacks they like to wear. Athletic Caps
also need to watch their teeth and knees, and they shouldn't be too daring, lest they break some bones. When it comes to love, Capricorns are ever devoted and never
The great strengths of the Capricorn-born are their willingness to work hard and their determination to succeed. Their ambition is boundless, yet they are cautious, responsible
and play fair, always. That is why their successes are all the more sweet.
