About Capricorn

Sanskrit Name: Makara | Meaning of Name: The Goat | Type: Earth-Cardinal-Negative
Capricorn, the upward climbing, always forward moving Mountain Goat, represents the 10th Sign of the Zodiac. Committed to responsibilities, Capricorn is a Sign representing the work side of life. Often calm, to the degree of appearing slightly cold, meticulous and dogged in their persistence for quality and productivity, Capricorn individuals are often a notch above their counterparts. Prodigious and confident, Goats are hard working, sincere, soft hearted yet sticklers for quality. Most of them are blessed with a deep wisdom, understanding and stability of thought and action from an early age. However, this does not make them boring or staid – even though a bit slow to truly flower. In fact, born with the wisdom of mature adults, the Goats, as they grow older tend to hark back to childhood in all its glory. Blame it on their ruler, the slow moving, discipline-loving, blossoming when the struggle is the hardest – Saturn! So, you may find a young Cappy somewhat dull, even lazy and tedious, thinner, shorter or weaker than his/ her peers (or fatter, for that matter) – in short, a misfit – working most nights, unwilling to go out, guarded and closed. However, as this Capricorn gets to the other side of 30, you may see him/ her changing his/ her streaks altogether. This is when you will see the sparkly, lively side of the Capricorn-borns. Patience, achievement, practicality and security net are their buzzwords. They may even act selfishly, if they don’t get what they want. However, love for them is special. It is a lot about stability and commitment, so from an early age, marriage is on the Goats’ minds. Loyal and caring towards their loved ones, the Capricorn individuals, though, will even pass up love for duty and virtue.
