Capricorn, the tenth Sign of the Zodiac, is all about hard work. Those born under this Sign are more than happy to put in a full day at the office, realizing that it will likely take a lot of those days to get to the top. The Capricorn-born are extremely dedicated to their goals, almost to the point of stubbornness.

Individual of Capricorn is someone who is sure-footed and negotiates every obstacle with care but with a lively step. Only getting to the top will do, and a great deal of determination will be present in the character to help Capricorns every step of the way.

People with this Sun-sign will not stride upwards without reflection, we must not forget that here is an Earth sign, and the influence of that element is ever-present. Every decision will be carefully taken, every challenge and opportunity carefully assessed, so that risks are minimal. The free-ranging mountain goat will then be able to use every bit of potential to the full, and feel that life is worth living.

People who are born under the sign of Capricorn are practical, self-reliant and tenacious. As a Capricorn, people see them as patient, realistic and responsible, but Capricorn’s take life far too seriously sometimes. Friends think of Capricorn individuals as kind and very peaceable, ambitious and hard working, and know that they can be easily embarrassed, so they try not to tease too much. Capricorns’ generally have a dry sense of humor come across as aloof and difficult to get to know with strangers.

At work, they never brush aside their responsibilities, but must have a goal to satisfy in order to keep their mind on work. And if they feel that they are not getting back from job what they are putting into it, they will most likely move on; a lack of challenge is what bores them most. Their coworkers and friends alike might turn to them with their problems, both personal and professional, because Capricorns’ seem to be a good problem solver and have excellent intuition.

Initiative and willingness to accept responsibilities are keys to the Capricorns’ success, but a false pride makes it hard for them to admit when they are wrong, or to ask others for help. Though you compete aggressively for what they want, they harbour an inner lack of confidence that can make them defensive. Viewing insecurity and fear as weakness, they attempt to hide such feelings, making it hard for others to get close to these people.

It is often the case that those born under this sign do not have a ready gushing flow of emotion. There is a tendency to coolness in love, for instance, and enthusiasm for new ideas may be somewhat muted by their typical matter-of-fact attitude. However, once committed in love they have tremendous loyalty, and while most young Capricorns will to a certain extent "play the field", on a more serious level they are usually discriminating. As a lover, they are faithful and reliable, but can be shy at first. In order for a relationship to become sexual, they must be exceedingly comfortable with their partner and have complete trust in them. Although they enjoy relationships and tend to prosper in them, individuals in this sign fear becoming too dependent upon their mate: they must have some time to themselves now and again because they are by nature rather independent person.
