What does an Ascendant in Capricorn Reveal?

Capricorn is the tenth sign of the Zodiac, and is an earth sign. Those with an Ascendant in Capricorn are disciplined, structured, and strict. They usually succeed in life by working hard and climbing up the ranks, and are very generous to those less fortunate. They speak with intellectually and eloquently, always trying to get their point across in a persuasive, yet correct manner. Capricorn Ascendant people often suffer from low self esteem and feel the need to compensate by working and studying hard. They are intelligent, responsible, and financially savvy. Free from naïveté, they need things to be proven to them before they believe. They are the skeptics of the Zodiac.

Regarding career, a person with Capricorn rising is generally in a position of authority. They do well in the fields of law, politics, and entertainment, (not so much as an entertainer, but as a director or other high position). They are natural born leaders and like to take charge while at work. Those who were born at a time when the Capricorn was rising in the eastern sky have a structured and well disciplined home life. Their children will be raised in a strict manner, and will need to follow a tight schedule. They look to their spouses for emotional support and encouragement. They see their life partners as a form of refuge from the cold, hard world they exist in. Home is the place to relax for the Capricorn Ascendant.

      Your Moon sign does play a role in love, but not near as much as your Venus sign because Venus cotrnols how you love. Venus in Aquarius people are a bit detached when it comes to love, but that doesn't mean they don't love you. They just don't always show it.
