Capricorns are ambitious and the lives of those born under this sign are marked by a purposeful pursuit of their destiny. Your motivating force is desire for success, money, status, position, authority and (though you might not realize it) for love.
Capricorn is both an earth sign and a cardinal sign. The combination of practicality (earth) and initiative (cardinal) produces a personality geared toward leadership and power. You’re a born climber who’s not content to poke along down in the valleys. As long as there is a top to get to from the bottom you will persevere in your upward striving.
The Goat symbolizes how to bound up impassable terrain and find new footholds where no one thought they existed. You always carry with you the knowledge that there are tasks to be fulfilled and if you can’t move mountains then, at least like the goat, you can scale the heights. You have a heightened sense of the value of time which makes you a superb organizer and planner. Unlike those who don’t look beyond next month you will carefully examine your goal, separate it into all its necessary steps and plot out a long term timetable that often involves years.
In the sign of Capricorn the quality of patience reaches new heights. One of the hallmarks of your sign is that you learn to wait for things you want. You are willing to give up todays temptation for tomorrows reward. You are ambitious, practical and (above all) determined. Your active mind quickly grasps ideas and you have an admirable ability to concentrate. You are precise and orderly and generally don’t trust others to look after details. When you give your word you stick to it. When you undertake a task you complete it to the best of your ability.
Because your diligence people sometimes fail to give you credit for your creativity. Yet you are highly creative and your skill is to link this with your talent for organization and eye for detail. You put dreams into action and are especially drawn to the artistic arena and performing arts. One of your more striking characteristics is your sense of humor. Your wit is extremely funny and has a way of erupting when others least expect it.
Anyone who cares enough to penetrate your shell of reserve will be greatly rewarded. Your affections and loyalty run deep and you cherish and protect those you love. And you stick around when the going is toughest.
