Tough and sure-footed like a mountain goat, Capricorns pick their way to the top
Arguably the most mature sign of the Zodiac, Capricorns are serious and sober individuals with a strong sense of built-in responsibility to protect and provide for others. These are solid-as-a-rock individuals who aim for the top, and usually get there. Ambitious and achievement-motivated – in their books, striving to attain and maintaining high standards are essential. This pursuit of excellence, can be interpreted by some, as snobbishness, but to the Capricorn, presenting a good self-image to the world is critically important.
At work and play, success is life’s driving force for Capricorns, and few will sit idly by when there is work to be done – especially when the job in question will enable them to climb up one more rung of the ladder. For Capricorns, success means, money, power and prestige – the essential ingredients that reward a life’s work. To their colleagues, they are rocks, towers of strength who never flinch from their responsibilities. They are able to carry out their work with cool efficiency, often over and above the call of duty.
In love and relationships, creating a stable and secure environment for their partners and dependants is top of the agenda for Capricorns. They become so busy in fulfilling this obligation, that they often forget the lighter side of life, or they neglect the emotional and spiritual needs of their loved ones. However, make no mistakes about these people – they may seem dour and unsentimental, but beneath their seemingly crusty exterior, there’s a soft and tender heart beating.
In health – bones, and in particular, knees are the most vulnerable areas for Capricorns. In fact, problems with joints and cartilage are especially prevalent. The skin can also be a problem, prone to allergies and nervous rashes, which break out at stressful times. Psychologically, black moods and depression can sometimes get the better of this sign, when emotional problems can make them look inwards, bringing out a strong introspective streak which seems to be a characteristic of Capricorns.
Where wealth is concerned, with excellent money-making skills, Capricorns do well financially. They are instinctive savers, prepared to work hard and invest their earnings in safe, reputable companies. For these careful individuals, taking any sort of financial gamble is their biggest nightmare and most detested act. As far as they are concerned, money is far too difficult a commodity to come by, and they are not prepared to risk, or squander a single penny of it without a very good reason.
