Capricorn, the Goat or Sea Goat, is the 10th sign of the Western zodiac. Souls born between December 23rd and January 19th are born under the constellation of Capricorn
Capricorn is a cardinal sign. In the language of astrology this means Capricorns are concerned with initiating change and setting things in motion. They are initiators! Cardinal signs are the most active and enterprising of the Zodiac.
Cardinal signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn) are more vigorous than Fixed signs (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, and Aquarius) and Mutable signs (Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, and Pisces). Cardinal signs are very assertive, tough, and aggressive. They are natural leaders and have difficulty with taking orders.
Capricorn is a feminine sign; meaning Capricorn people are passive (do not like confrontation), receptive (takes in a lot, very emotional), and withdrawn (can easily be to him/herself which is great for spiritual purposes). Feminine signs (Taurus, Cancer, Virgo, Scorpio, and Pisces) are introverted.
Capricorn corresponds to the astrological 10th House, which is the House of Business and Career. The 10th House present lessons in life pertaining to the outer environment, business, career/occupation, public life, structure, social order (status quo), social status, ambition, recognition, parents (the father), and authority figures.
Because Capricorn is the 10th sign, it automatically corresponds to the 10th House and thus Capricorn people are those who strive for social status and recognition, ambition, success in business or career, and order. These people look up to authority. They seek and crave order. They like to be recognized and to feel important in society. They are driven individuals.
The astrological statement of Capricorn is “I Use!”
Capricorns are predictable, plodding along a steady course, in many respects like Taurus, their astrological elemental brethren. Capricorns are stable, conservative, honest, economical, fair, logical, rational, serious, patient, conventional, independent, prudent, rocklike, cautiously confident, strong-willed, subtle, collected, responsible, consistent, witty, and very hardworking.
However, Caps can also be narrow-minded, pessimistic, and callous. In addition, they can be slow, stubborn, unyielding, lustful for power, melancholic, and depressive.
Capricorn, like Taurus and Virgo, is an Earth sign. Earth signs are grounded, practical, sensual, and security seeking. If you are looking for stability and security in a mate and relationship, Earth signs are your best bet, especially Taurus and Capricorn.
Capricorns do well in relationships with other Earth signs due to the many similarities they share, which facilitate compatibility in relationships. So in relationships, Caps should first look for a Taurus or Virgo.
After Earth signs, Water signs (Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces) would be most compatible for Capricorns. Cancer is actually the most ideal mate for a Capricorn because Cancer is Capricorn’s astrological opposite and opposite signs help to balance each other. Cancer will balance Capricorn just as Aries will balance Libra, Taurus will balance Scorpio, Gemini will balance Sagittarius, Leo will balance Aquarius, and Virgo will balance Pisces, and of course, vice versa for all the signs.
Relationships with Air signs (Gemini, Libra, Aquarius) and Fire signs (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius) may be quite challenging.
