The Capricorn Profile

Prudent, Ambitious, Disciplined, Patient, Careful, Humorous and Reserved, Pessimistic, Fatalistic, Miserly, Grudging, Overly Conventional and Rigid.


Capricorns are ambitious, hard working and never lose sight of their goals. While the pragmatic Capricorn's "one step at a time" approach to getting things done may not be that interesting, it tends to yield the correct results.

It is not uncommon for Capricorn to be overbearing on his or her journey to success. He or she will rationalize their behavior by implying that an ambitious nature is a key ingredient of any born leader. Yes, Capricorn is very industrious and overly detail oriented. But, they also are very sensual and empathetic. Don't let that tough facade fool you!

Not one to generally take risks, Capricorn has to wait for success. Being patient and confident assures success and those requirements are not even a problem for steady, consistent and most pragmatic Capricorn.

Capricorns are traditionalists to the extreme and can frequently appear hazy or slightly "out of sync". They never wander very far from home and don't chase "out of reach" dreams. They are rational, contained and never display emotional outbursts, unless generally provoked.

Sometimes they can be brooding, intense and inattentive, but their devotion to work and family offsets this easily. They are just mulling over their plans for present and future successes. And they are so loving and fun to chill out with.

Although their ambition may seem limitless, when success does come his or her way, they find this most fulfilling because they persevered, persisted and did it "their way". They tend to achieve as they age, both in personal and professional relationships.


In a love relationship, Capricorns are slow starters, but prove to be explosive performers and long-lasting, loyal companions. They are quite skilled in sex once they overcome their initial fears and insecurities.

When aroused, Capricorns are enthusiastic and adventurous in the art of love, but can be possessive and jealous when threatened. Partners can sometimes be overwhelmed by the intensity of their passion, as it can suddenly "erupt" from beneath a rather cool and calm exterior.

In marriage they are loyal, good providers and strive to develop a strong home environment. Thank the stern planet of Saturn for blessing them with brilliance and haunting memories of past injustices .

When they are certain of their personal success they tend to delight in living up to the reputation of an accomplished individual, both in love and in their chosen profession. In love: This is where Capricorn will be at his or her best.
