ladyfiddler: I am married to a Capricorn, and the way you describe yourself, is exactly him! Also your picture above covers it all...the goat...My husband is very organized, EXTREMELY patient, loyal, very hard working, EVERYTHING above.
We will be married 40 years in May. I am a Scorpio. I think Capricorns are one of the best people to be around. One thing I DO notice, is that Dave 'is never wrong'...I say that in a humorous, loving way. If we get into an argument, for example, over whether or not there is too much cake batter to put into my small pan, if he says it will work and I don't agree, he firmly states, I TELL you, it will work! And he is always right.
I don't know if it is a male thing, but he will shut down if I go on a tirade...he will NOT answer me...so this hardly ever happens. He will NOT argue!
On the other hand, one of my close friends is a Capricorn. SHE is very confrontational, and, if she is upset with a person, she will give he/she total eye contact and stare them down. I would never want to be on the other side of her anger. Both she and my husband are exactly like you: they believe whatever they are doing should be done good...and if they don't know how to put an object together, they will spend HOURS trying to figure it out. They are determined to achieve this. it is very difficult to oppose them as they are set in their ways.
Yet they both are very wise and great with one-liner advice.
I hope this helps. Thanks for this question...I worked with a doctor who was very much into astrology, and he could tell a person's sign after talking with them for five minutes...he knew them all, and I am now quite familiar with the signs. Blessings, Sparklea :)
