Capricorn December 22 - January 19

Your Sun Zodiac sign may not best describe your personality features, your characteristics and general qualities that you bring to life. For many people, their Ascendant or its planetary ruler is the more obvious characteristic, or sometimes the Moon sign. Your Sun sign, rather, says more about the direction you should be moving in, to make the contribution to humanity you were born to make, and thus achieve a degree of personal fulfilment.

A typical Capricorn has good organizational skills, is neat and tidy, have hardheaded practicality. You have strong work ethic, materialistic tendencies, a conservative streak, conventionality and great respect for authority. You are ambitious, serious and dedicated to duty. You are self-disciplined, responsible and practical but at times, you can wallow in self-pity. Your reasoning ability is excellent and has strong sense of purpose and direction.

The Capricorn personality witnesses to the importance of the social order in which one lives, its proper functioning, and the personal fulfilment which can be found through finding ones true place within it. Capricorn follows Sagittarius in the zodiac. Sagittarius is concerned with finding a philosophical or religious framework in which life makes sense, but is not necessarily interested in the practical implications.

A Capricorn may appear somber and reserved in their dealings with others, but once they give the trust, they are a loyal and steadfast friend. Socially oriented, you are willing to work hard for anything you want, and your self-esteem is extremely important to you. You are bright and quick. You are good in detail as well as in insight and conceptual formulation. You are materialistic rather than philosophical. You are capable of falling in love for its own pleasure but love alone will not motivate you to marriage. To you marriage serves a social design.

All the earth signs, of which Capricorn is one, give substance to the ideas of the preceding fire sign. For Capricorn, it is not enough to have a grand idea about the meaning of life. The meaning is lost unless it can be contained within the social order in which people live. Ethical ideas (Sagittarius) must be worked out in terms of socially responsible behaviour (Capricorn).

Loners

Their desire for fame and success, combined with their independent nature and natural inhibition, Capricorns tend to be the loners of the zodiac. Many Capricorns have tunnel vision when it comes to their goals. They disregard everything else - family, friends, even their own emotions - while in pursuit of their goal. They know they have what it takes to complete the job, so the "I don't need you" attitude often turns others off.

Ambitious

Driven as they are, Capricorns are rarely idle. They have faith in themselves more than in other people and realise if something is going to happen, it is going to be because of their doing. Many see this trait as cold, but Capricorns are merely self-sufficient people. Because they realise time is precious, they are great organisers and capable of paying thorough attention to detail. Capricorns are the most likely sign to marry someone for their money or status in life. Not that marriage will prevent a Capricorn from continuing to be ambitious in his or her own right. But, even when their partner is more financially and socially powerful, Capricorns need to be in control.
