Capricorn Traits, Numbers, Qualities And Facts

Updated on July 16, 2014

Capricorn Traits

Capricorn is the tenth sign of the Zodiac, given to men and women born from December 22nd to January 20th. Capricorns are often independent because they know their capabilities and rarely trust others to finish details, they like to do it all themselves. This tends to one of the strongest traits of the Capricorn, which is leadership. The Capricorn symbol is one of the most prestige symbols in Astrology.

The Capricorn is perhaps the most steadfast and resolute Sign of the entire Zodiac. The Mountain Goats, or so the Capricorn are known, are ambitious, reserved, determined, relentless, practical and helpful. They make excellent leaders and organizers, thanks to their focused, concentrated thought process and a responsible, sincere attitude. These Workaholics of the Zodiac, however, are liable to be perceived as cold, detached, stern disciplinarians, mostly owing to the influence of their ruling planet Saturn. Yes, they can be negative, suspicious, resentful, inhibited, pessimistic and obstinate, but the Capricorn are rarely bad at heart. They are tender inside, and their hard exteriors are designed well to help them stay guarded against the hurt and rejection, they so strongly despise.

Capricorn Health

Since Capricorns are well known for their work ethics, they often suffer health issues brought on by themselves. Stress can often become a health concern for Capricorns, due to their working nature and the negative thoughts. Having the ability to control stress levels is vital. Pointing back to their working nature, Capricorns can also take projects over the edge. They often don't know when to stop, which can be counter-productive and self-destructive. Sitting proper goals and milestones at work can tend to the added stress and perfection behavior.

Some of the most common health concerns for Capricorns include arthritis, rheumatism, skin concerns and eczema, bone diseases, knee injuries and depression. The key to good health for the sturdy Goat lies in being good to oneself – they need to fiercely guard their health, often reminding themselves of the benefits of good, timely meals, regular rest and exercise and ample doses of sleep. Possibly more then any other sign in terms of health, the Capricorn needs to think "me."

Capricorn Love And Romance

Capricorns can be very loyal lovers. Inner peace and finding peace within is important to the Capricorn relationship. Some may believe that they are boring in relationships but they do like to have fun. When a Capricorn can trust you, the results are often rewarding. Again, loyalty is big for them. Security also plays a major role in Capricorn relationships. They want to feel safe, secure, seeking routine at times.

Capricorns do often seek monetary gains. This is one of the reasons that they make good owners and businessmen. Improving their life and surroundings is important for the Goat. Remember, they want to be secure, having enough money to pay this month's bills is security to them. They are not doing it for gains, they do it for security.

It is true that Capricorns command in a relationship but they rarely try to dominate. Their natural leadership skills are the leading reason. They are not aggressive nor like arguing. They prefer everything to run smooth like a well-oiled machine, which may become boring to some. They can have their moments. They can get into the negative thought mode and they can become stubborn.

Capricorn And Business

The Capricorn personality is geared towards that of leadership and achievement, they always want to climb the corporate ladder and be the best they can be.

When they have time to think things over, they often make the best out of a situation or circumstance. Capricorns make good, strong investments because they look at the long-term and what will be the most beneficial down the road. Investors and business positions in general is where Capricorns often find themselves due to their will to achieve success and greatness.

Capricorns are business-minded people. Due to this, the Capricorn is the type of person that will get someone back on their feet again with a steady plan for success. Since they have a helpful and caring personality anyway, they wouldn't expect anything in return, a thank you would be fine for them.

Capricorns are big thinkers, if they had the opportunity to fix the world, they would give it their best go around. Your Capricorn friends may already know that you need help. There may not be another sign that can compare to friendship like the loyal Goat.

Capricorn Males And Females

They guard their heart and close friends dearly but the trust barrier must come down first. They are loving and loyal but usually shy away from the spotlight or parties. Although Capricorns are logical and leaders at heart, they like to keep it simple.

The women born under this Sign are modest, goal-oriented and tend to be aggressive about the tasks on hand. Besides, they are methodical and disciplined ladies who have faith in their strengths and know their weaknesses as well. This can be a fault but also a strength for Capricorn women. They will give you effort in a relationship.

      Capricorn is indeed a powerful sign. In fact, Capricorn is a sign of power. Capricorns love being in control as you have said in the hub that they do not trust anyone. Capricorns hate to be vulnerable as to be vulnerable is considered quite undignified in their eyes. Capricorns want to be the ones who call the shots; they do not want to be at the beck and call of someone else.

      Capricorns also love power as power gives them independence. Capricorns love to OWN, not be OWNED. That is why Capricorns dislike sentimentality and outward displays of emotionis. These things in the Capricorn's eyes is considered to be weak in addition to being vulnerable. Those things are the last things Capricorns want to be.

      Capricorns are cool and collected. That is the image they want to project to others and to the world. This is an excellent hub. Voted UP.

      I've dated 2 Capricorn women and due to their more negative traits I can safely say that I don't trust people under this sign ... your analysis was fairly accurate but since I'm not a Capricorn (I'm a Gemini) I've abstained from voting ..Looking forward to reading your analysis on Gemini men btw :)
