Capricorn star sign - Horoscope, compatibility and traits explained
Updated: Mar 28
Capping off the zodiac year, the Capricorn season is associated with stability and practicality.
Capricorn people are ruthlessly efficient and direct with their energy, but also generous, responsible, and compassionate. They can be overly hard on themselves in an effort to gain control of their lives, and have the tendency to be controlled by their fears.
Once Capricorn achieves its goals (which are many), it tends to live life by its rules rather than following the flow of nature.
Known as the 'Go-Getters' and the 'Trustworthy Idealists', people born under this sign are very practical, organized, and responsible. They make excellent leaders who know how to delegate. Their quiet determination makes them great managers of both people and projects. They love having high standards in everything they do, whether it's as a career or as an artist.
The cardinal modality makes Capricorn a sign that's very interested in new beginnings and fresh starts. The Capricorn season falls right during the New Year transition, so it's no surprise that this zodiac sign tends to plan out every aspect of their life with great attention to detail.
The Capricorn sea goat is a creature of practicality, but also spiritual and almost mythical. As a business-oriented sign, the sea goat takes care of its finances and assets better than most, but they do so while simultaneously having a deep appreciation for the mysteries, power and beauty of the cosmos.
Aesthetics and function, worldly success and spiritual truth, practicality and idealism--these are the dualistic demands of any Capricorn's life. The job of the Capricorn is to find a creative balance between them all.
Capricorn and friendships
Capricorns value their friends dearly, but there is always work to be done. Typical Capricorns are career-oriented and very passionate about what they do for work. This means that their friendships and relationships must take a back seat sometimes, which can be hard on friends and lovers.
If you're a Capricorn and wonder which signs are your best friends and worst enemies, the answer is not as cut-and-dried as some of you might think. While there are no absolutes when it comes to astrological compatibility, Capricorns typically gravitate toward folks who are supportive and direct (again, no drama!). Here are their most compatible and incompatible signs in friendship and love.
Capricorn is a stable and ambitious sign characterized by cautiousness and the willingness to wait for what they really want. Generally, the most compatible signs for Capricorn friendships and romantic relationships are fellow earth signs (Capricorn, Virgo, Taurus), as they speak the same emotional language, and water signs for their emotional connection (Cancer, Pisces, Scorpio).
Caps tend to be serious and analytical, which might not mesh well with Air or Fire. Air signs (Gemini, Aquarius, Libra) and fire signs (Aries, Sagittarius, Leo) might deliver romantic attraction with Capricorns, but they're not necessarily built to last with the ultra-serious sign.
