Capricorn is the tenth sign of the zodiac, ruled by Saturn, and symbolized by the goat. Capricorns are one of the most ambitious signs of the zodiac. They have a need to succeed in their career and love to be in a position of authority. Appearing cool and collected, Capricorns enjoy power and the respect that comes with it. They recognize there are rules and conform to them, often serving as the voice of reason in some instances. Capricorns are practical people with their feet firmly planted on the ground. Because Saturn is the planet of limitations, Capricorns often realize that time is short and that realization makes them great organizers. They love to plan out every detail.

However confident they appear on the outside, they are not always this way on the inside and if a Capricorn’s authority or power is compromised, they may make faulty decisions.

Despite their desire to succeed, Capricorns are very patient people and will wait as long as necessary to get what they want. This patience and willingness to wait makes them very cautious decision makers. This is especially true if the decision involves money. Capricorns are great money handlers and know a good investment when they see it. This need to accumulate wealth comes from the Capricorns need for security. To them, money equals security, so they make financial decisions very carefully. In fact, Capricorns don’t ever like to feel like they “owe” anyone anything, whether it be money or an act of kindness in return.


Capricorns are so driven, they are rarely at rest. Because they do believe in themselves and their ability to succeed, they don’t leave this success to others. They figure if it is going to happen, they have to make it happen, so they are very self-sufficient people. In relationships, Capricorns often look for other people who are successful or wealthy. But, even if their partner has more money or fame than them, the Capricorn still likes to be in control.

Due to their self-sufficient nature, Capricorns are very independent. Yet, this independence combined with their natural drive can lead them to be loners. They may work long hours to achieve their goals because they often have tunnel vision and don’t seem to have time for anything or anyone else. Others often don’t understand this internal drive and may see Capricorns as bossy or domineering, but they are just so focused on getting what they want.

Capricorn children are often very obedient and intelligent, but may be introverted, especially in their early years. They may be the teacher’s pet because of their desire to achieve. Their rooms will probably be tidy as Capricorns love to keep things in order.

Physically, Capricorns are susceptible to stiff joints, rheumatism or arthritis, and suffer from orthopedic problems.

Famous Capricorns include Humphrey Bogart, Kirstie Alley, Cary Grant, Faye Dunaway, Elvis Presley, David Bowie, John Denver, Joan Baez, Rod Stewart, Edgar Allan Poe, J.R. Tolkien, J.D. Salinger, Muhammed Ali, Sandy Koufax, Howard Hughes, Conrad Hilton, Martin Luther King Jr., Richard Nixon, J. Edgar Hoover, and Mao Tse Tung.
