Capricorn Zodiac Sign Traits
SPIRITUAL GIFTS: Ambitious, Reliable, Prepared
Tough, organized, and practical, you’re the swiss army knife of the zodiac lineup.
Remarkably ambitious, you seek to elevate yourself to the highest heights. Like the surefooted goat that represents your sign, you were built to climb to the top of any mountain that catches your eye, bucking obstacles with your natural strength.
With that said, it’s important to note you don’t earn your success with force, but through knowledge and cleverness. You network, research, and plan to the greatest extent possible. By the time you’re ready to execute, you are perfectly confident in your abilities. Planning is not a step to be skipped!
You may appear to be a bold risk taker, but the truth is that you’re quite cautious; you’ve just done your homework and know exactly what to expect. The result gives onlookers the impression that you have supernatural talent. But the truth is, you’ve put in the time/effort/training way ahead of time, and often in private.
While you expect to be taken seriously for your accomplishments, you are humble and not at all showy. On the contrary, you’re a private soul by nature. So much so that your greatest successes seem to come out of nowhere.
More About Capricorn Personality
Structure and tradition are important to you, and you’ll choose tried and true methods over radical, unproven approaches any day. Your sign is ruled by the planet Saturn, which represents work, as well as the concept of time.
As a result, you’re an incredibly hard worker who knows the value of a dollar. You’re hyper-aware of how much can be accomplished in a day, and are great at combining tasks to squeeze the most productivity out of every hour. Wastefulness is not in your vocabulary, and that includes the precious resource of time.
A true child of the earth, you’re right at home in nature, happiest when you’re exploring outdoors. Being outside is medicine for your soul, because its one of the few ways that effectively relieves your stress.
Opportunities For Growth
This makes perfect sense if you consider the time of year your soul entered the world. For our ancestors, winter was a time of scarcity, when they heavily relied on their survival skills. As a Capricorn, you’ve inherited the strong desire for self sufficiency and stability, and this makes you a creature of habit.
Always well informed, knowledge is power in your book and you’re perfectly comfortable in powerful positions. Primarily, because you simply don’t trust anyone else to steer the ship – you can sniff out incompetence quickly. For this reason, you may get caught up in the need for control. At work, you may lean toward being a workaholic. At home, you want to actively manage your tribe – or at least weigh in on how they should manage themselves.
When you find yourself feeling the weight of your responsibilities, remember its okay to step back and let your loved ones stumble a bit as they gain their own footing. Set healthy boundaries for yourself so you have plenty of time to balance work with play.
It’s important you tap into your lighter side on a regular basis, for your physical and emotional health. It’s safe to relax, dearest Cap!

BEST ROMANTIC MATCHES: Taurus, Virgo, Pisces, Scorpio
In addition, water signs like Pisces and Scorpio will offer you lovely balance. Water signs are all about intuition and emotion. These people will thrive under the influence of your grounded energy, and in return they’ll help you develop your emotional side.
On the contrary, you may find air and fire signs a bit too much to contain. These souls are energetic, embrace change, and aren’t quite as comfortable submitting to your alpha vibe. But if you’re both up to learning new ways of looking at life, you’ll be good! Often your opposites will offer the most spiritual growth.

How To Attract A Capricorn
If a Capricorn is the object of your desire, here are some tips for a successful courtship!
For starters, know that Caps are fiercely committed to their tribe (a group of goats is actually called a ‘tribe’ and that’s no coincidence). So make it a point to take an active interest in their family and friends.
Your Cap will probably prefer to be in charge of making date plans, based on their own research. So if you’re easy going, leave the details to them.
Also know that it’ll take a while for you to gain access to their emotions. They are private when it comes to matters of the heart, choosing to reveal their softer side to only a chosen few. So don’t expect a swapping of secrets and innermost hopes and dreams until they’ve made a complete assessment of your worthiness (side note: if a Capricorn trusts you, it’s a profound compliment).
Like everything else, Caps take partnerships seriously, and will wait as long as necessary to find a proper mate – they don’t settle. But if you make the cut, your Capricorn will make a remarkably loyal companion, with every intention of staying right by your side forever, if not longer. In return, they expect your unwavering fidelity and respect.
Warning: if you borrow something from a Cap, don’t forget to give it back. Their possessions are representations of the hard work they put in to acquire them. Plus cap’s vibe is all about preparedness; so if they find themselves in need of something they’ve loaned out, it really gets their goat (pun intended).
FRIENDS + FAMILY
If you were born under the Capricorn zodiac sign, the people you care about are always top priority. You show love in practical ways, showing up to help someone move, offer advice, or plan a family reunion. You’re also quick to step in if you see a situation going sideways, even if it’s against popular opinion.
When the tribe is in crisis, you’re the one making phone calls, reaching out to subject matter experts, and coming up with a game plan while everyone else is scratching their heads on where to begin. Your alpha vibes kick in when your people need you most. This is one of your most beloved qualities.
Capricorn Career and Life Purpose
Cap, you are all about hard work, dedication, and timeliness, which makes you an all star employee. People trust you to get things done properly, on schedule, and under budget.
You have patience when it comes to getting what you want. Whether this means saving every penny for your dream home or going back to school for additional education.
You have a diverse skillset: your endurance and capacity for hard work means you can handle jobs that are physically demanding, yet your way with money and planning means you’d do great in finance, too.
To top it off, you have an aura of authority and sincerity around you. When you’re in ‘wheeling and dealing’ mode, people usually can’t even tell. This makes you a good fit for sales as well. Whatever you do, you’re likely to make your way to the top of the ladder in your chosen craft.

Capricorn Tarot Card
The Capricorn zodiac sign is represented by the Ego card. Don’t take this the wrong way, Cap! The ego card is all about earthly experiences (as opposed to being focused on spirituality or philosophy). With your feet planted firmly in the ground, you are right at home in your human life, and this card honors that.
The ego represents the instincts that allow us to survive. You are always making sure the ones you love are safe and secure. Plus, you honor the lives of animals and respect mama nature. All of this is reflected in The Ego. The spiritual number of this card is 6 which represents material concerns of daily life. You are the keeper of this realm and we love you for it!

Capricorn Chakra Healing
The Capricorn zodiac sign is ruled by the root chakra, which is your energetic foundation.
When this chakra is in balance, you feel grounded, secure, and connected to your tribe. This is when you’re at your very best! If you ever feel the need to strengthen your root chakra, close your eyes and mist yourself with a few pumps of You’re Grounded. It will reestablish your connection to mother earth.
In addition, most Caps could benefit from regular solar plexus chakra healing. You tend to carry your stress in the upper belly region, in the chakra that rules control and personal power.
It can be difficult to surrender control and trust the universe! So when you’re struggling with this, use Power Pose solar plexus chakra spray to bring yourself back into balance.
Affirmation for Capricorn:
I surrender the need to control, and trust the universe.
