Capricorn capricorn
(Born between December 22 - January 20)
Capricorn is a feminine earth sign ruled by Saturn, the Goat is reserved, plain and prefers to be the power behind the throne. Although he is not showy or flashy, he is a force to be reckoned with, and enjoys the limelight when that day comes. Quiet determination is the best phrase to describe this sign. The Goat, although passive in nature, is very ambitious. He or she will start at the bottom and work hard for years to reach CEO or build a profitable business.

Success and achievement usually come later in life. Even a Capricorn woman, if raising a family, will work a part time job in her preferred field and eventually rise to rule it. Or she will work to exalt her husband, if he is in high corporate circles or politics.

It is typical for a Capricorn to have few resources but go a long way with what he has been dealt. These people know how to endure. In love, they are picky, and choose lovers and partners very carefully. They don't mess around with casual relationships. In health matters, they are prone to broken bones or bad teeth, but are resilient and can live to a ripe old age even with handicaps.

They are conservative, patient, practical and don't require much of a fancy lifestyle. When they have achieved their goals and a life of comfort, they prefer dark, earthy colors, sensible furniture and lots of real estate. After all, this is an earth sign. They would rather have a 200 acre horse farm and L.L. Bean, than a penthouse suite and Saks Fifth Avenue. Some Goats also enjoy gardening and have a real green thumb. Realtors, stockbrokers, mathematicians, retail merchandisers, politicians, architects, office managers and mountain climbers are found under Capricorn.
