Capricorn Personality

Capricorn is one of the most persistent and ambitious signs of the zodiac. These people are very patient, dedicated and driven by the need to succeed in life. They will often set extremely high goals for themselves, because they are born achievers. Symbolized by the mountain goat, people born under this sign are always climbing higher and higher – they are never content until reaching the top. They are persevering, cautious and patient individuals.
When it comes to love and relationships, they desire a serious and long-term relationship with someone who will give them the affection they crave. Ruled by Saturn, the planet of responsibility and hard work, Capricorns are practical, ambitious and great organizers. As employees, Capricorns are borderline workaholics who will work long hours on the job, constantly climbing the ladder of success.


Capricorn Friends and Family

Capricorns are loyal friends but they are very distrusting, so in order to form a lasting bond with someone, they need a lot of time to realize that they won’t be betrayed. Young Capricorns are capable of spontaneous and joyful relationships, but with age, they get more cautious and tend to close up in their own little worlds. They are caring and compassionate friends who will always be there to help.
According to astrology Capricorn parents are focused on working hard for their family and meeting their responsibilities. Their intentions are good, but sometimes they can place too much importance on being dutiful providers and not enough on other things that really matter, such as spending more time with their children.
As parents, Capricorns will be strict and too rational, which doesn't go well with sensitive children who crave emotional attention. Nevertheless, when it comes to building career, their thirst for success makes a great example for their children. They are also reliable and responsible parents who can raise emotionally strong and successful children.

Capricorn Love and Sex

When it comes to love, Capricorns want a partner who shows dedication to moral values. They are most compatible with the signs of Taurus, Cancer, Virgo and Pisces. Capricorns want someone who is strong, reliable and independent; someone they will want to share a future with. Even though they seem cold and distant, once they open up, their seemingly cool exterior turns to warm and cuddly nature. Capricorns in love require patience, persistence and time. They are loyal, devoted and mature, so they won't have any problems committing for life. Even though many Capricorns have a reputation for thriftiness, they do not stint on gifts and surprises for their partners. Many representatives of this sign delay love by pouring their energies into their careers.
Many Capricorns lack in confidence, so they tend to be a bit self-conscious about their sexual performance. Never make fun of them, because any kind of implied criticism will immediately end your relationship for good. Capricorn is the zodiac sign that is least likely to kiss and tell – your bedroom secrets and your reputation will be safe in the hands of a Capricorn. Those born under the Capricorn zodiac sign can easily miss out on sexual opportunities due to their fear of rejection.

Capricorn Career and Money

Ambitious, determined, disciplined and hard-working, Capricorns often reach high positions. Being as honest and responsible as they are makes them excellent employees that every employer wants. Capricorns are professional and dedicated, so they like to ensure that any project assigned to them is completed successfully. They're generally good with numbers, so it's not surprising to find a Capricorn in professions such as economics, banking or gambling.
When it comes to money, Capricorns are rational and logical, so these people tend to come across a great wealth at some point in their lives. They are generous, but this doesn't seem to affect their wealth in the long run.


Capricorn Man

The Capricorn man may not be very outgoing and sociable, but he possesses patience and strong determination power. He is caring, loving and helpful, but he doesn't really know how to respond to flattery and compliments. The Capricorn man is known as the most loyal of the zodiac signs. He is a romantic, loyal and generous partner who believes in family bonding. If you want to impress the Capricorn man, you will have to impress his family members first. Although he's not overly affectionate, he is very close to his family and won't tolerate anyone who does not get along with his family.

Capricorn Woman

The Capricorn woman is versatile and can perform very well in any field chosen by her. She seeks trust, care, respect, security and authority. The Capricorn female can achieve anything she wants, because she is patient, ambitious and perseverant.
She is socially active and even though she looks very calm and collected, she can actually be easily provoked. The Capricorn woman is very loyal and helpful friend who is always there to listen to other people's problems and offer great advice. She is extremely sensitive and does not like teasing or being the brunt of jokes, so she will go the extra mile to elevate herself into a position where that sort of behavior is not tolerated. A Capricorn woman in love is the warmest and most devoted partner anyone could have.

Capricorn Horoscope

2017 is a year of big changes for you. You're very ambitious, competitive and aspire to do great things in life, Capricorn. You expect nothing but success whether it's in love, business, or family. Your continued search for success will bring you steady financial gain from February to June when Jupiter directs in Virgo. However, don't let success get to your head and try to stay humble. You will realize that only few can keep up with your pace and therefore it can be a bit lonely on the top of your mountain, so don't forget the people who have helped you along the way. In 2017, you will need to offer gratitude and recognition to your lover, friends, family members, and co-workers. Even though you love praise and recognition, now it's your turn to give, rather than receive. You will find that the more you give, the more you get and the Universe will repay you for kindness and generosity.

Love

You prefer to have a rich and exciting love life, and therefore you approach your relationships slowly and carefully. In January you will experience a conflict in your relationship, so whatever the reason, just listen closely to your partner's point of view and try to come to a solid compromise. In June, Jupiter directs in the sign of Virgo, which means that you will experience a happy time in your relationship. On the other hand, if you're searching for love, this is a great time to go out, meet new people and start dating. If you're already in a serious relationship, you should plan a romantic trip in June or July to spice up the relationship. You will be very popular all year long, so it's obvious that you won't be alone and bored.

Health & Wellness

You will be feeling good in the first two months of the year, but in March you may become a victim of illness or injury. You're energetic, restless, and you have a tendency to move through life quickly, wich makes you vulnerable to falls and injuries. Take your time to relax and slow down - it is extremely important to your health and well-being. From July to September you will recover from your health issues and you will be feeling fantastic again.

Career & Money

You're dedicated, ambitious, and a hard working person and 2017 promises fame and fortune thanks to Jupiter. Just remember to slow down to celebrate your success. In the beginning of the year, you will feel stagnant at work, which will be a challenge as you prefer to be on the fast track. You will also feel a lack of control with money, so your wallet will be more often empty than full. Try to work trough this slow and tough period which will last until June when Jupiter directs in the sign of Virgo, so you will be able to see a great shift in your work pattern and a change in your financial situation. Success at work will continue throughout the year and in September, you can expect a promotion or an unexpected financial gain of an investment you made a long time ago.
