Capricorn is the tenth astrological sign in the Zodiac. The sea goat is the symbol associated with the Capricorn. This symbol comes from the constellation which is normally depicted as a goat with a fish’s tail. People born between about December 22nd through around January 20th are considered Capricorns. The exact moment of the beginning of the Capricorn cycle is at the moment of winter solstice. The Capricorn Zodiac is ruled by Saturn and is an Earth sign. The Capricorn Zodiac is also considered one of the four cardinal signs.
Capricorns are generally thought to be most compatible with the other earth signs, which are Taurus and Virgo. To a lesser extent, they are also compatible with Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces because they are also water signs. Regardless of which sign you are, it is possible to have an effective and productive relationship with a Capricorn as long as you both are able to work with each other and learn the Capricorn characteristics, which can benefit each other.

For those seeking a long term relationship such as a spouse with a Capricorn, you surely won’t be disappointed. Their desire to stay well grounded and committed fits perfectly with this. Some people may find the Capricorn horoscope traits to quickly get boring, but with the right effort, a Capricorn will be happy to do enjoyable things with you. Just note that any exciting or out of the ordinary events should not be planned by the Capricorn since they are more apt to want to say home or do other more grounded activities. Capricorns often like things to do with nature, like hiking or camping, so this may be an ideal activity which can be a good, exciting thing as well as something more grounded.
When looking at a Capricorn as a potential coworker or business partner, there are few people that could be better chosen. The Capricorn is very disciplined and will do all they can to ensure they successfully complete any task. There is never a need to micro-manage a Capricorn because, by their very nature, they will be able to ensure things are completed successfully every time. As managers, Capricorns can sometimes seem overbearing at first, but that is just because they expect excellence from others. They are normally going to be very happy to assist others to help them achieve success as well because they might see that as helping them gain a solid foundation for their own life.
Many of the Capricorn horoscope characteristics will make them ideal candidates for a successful career in the military. Capricorns come wired perfectly for the traits that are expected in any branch of the armed forces. They are stable and dependable and won’t have any problem performing the tasks assigned to them without question. The Capricorn will be very loyal to his or her country and also to the individual unit in the armed forces and may be quickly selected for leadership roles. Capricorns excel in leadership positions inside and outside the military because they truly lead people and not just demand that they do things.
The leadership potential that comes from the Capricorn horoscope traits is something that often comes naturally to them. They will help their team through difficult times to ensure the success of the entire group. They don’t need to have a show of dominance in their position because people will naturally want to follow their lead in most any situation. Capricorns are able to show and explain things in ways most anyone can understand and then they are trusting enough to allow their direct reports to finish the task on their own. They will be available to assist or give guidance for any situation, even if it’s not directly related to the task at hand. Capricorns often take a more holistic approach to management or leadership positions.
Capricorn characteristics make them reliable in nearly every situation. They are very willing to learn new things, especially when they can see the value in learning it. A great example of this is if a Capricorn is having an issue with their car, they will likely ask the mechanic to not only fix it but also teach them how they could fix it next time, or better yet, how they could avoid having a similar problem in the future. They will retain this knowledge and gladly assist others who are having a similar problem in the future. Capricorns are often quite intelligent, which allows them to learn many things. Some Capricorns struggle with becoming a “jack of all trades, master of none” meaning that they are good at many different things but not great at any. This is the result of possibly spreading themselves to thin, but once they recognize this as a problem, they will take decisive action to fix it.
Capricorns are great, down to earth and stable people which most anyone would be happy to be friends with. The Capricorn horoscope traits are ideally suited for long term friendship, becoming a committed spouse or being a successful business partner. They often have a wide range of knowledge and are very happy to help others in nearly any situation. Capricorns make great leaders and friends, which people want to have around in all situations.
