Capricorn & Love
You don’t make a lot of time for love in your life if you have goals that you want to achieve. You’ll sacrifice a love life if it’ll help you get closer to attaining the goals that you’ve set out for. Because of this, you usually don’t date as much when you’re young, and tend to find someone to settle down with at an older age.
It actually puts you in a better position than everyone else because you’re wiser, you’ve lived some life, you know what you want, you won’t put up with nonsense, and you’ve already established your life so you’re not looking for someone to make you happy, only add to your life.
Commitment isn’t a scary concept to you, and you take it very seriously. You’re dedicated to your partner, and you can be with someone for a long time. You’d rather be in a relationship or be single, and forgo that in-between stuff. Either someone is worth your time or they’re not.
You remain detached for a long time, so if you decide someone isn’t worth your time, you don’t feel like you invested too much. It takes effort for someone to get you to open up, and you need to know you can trust them. When you do open up, it’s serious.
The signs that you’re most compatible with are usually the ones in the same element as yours, which are Taurus and Virgo. Both signs want a stable life like you do, and they won’t rock the boat.
Taurus will share in your love of luxury, and Virgo will share in your hard work ethic. Taurus will show you how to put work aside and take time off, while Virgo will show you to be more adaptable to situations. It’s easy for you to be comfortable with these two signs.
The sign that opposes yours in the zodiac tends to be the one you have the most sparks with, and for you, that’s Cancer. Their sensitivity is disconcerting and their moodiness aggravates you, but something brings you together that you can’t explain, and they can be wonderfully supportive of your endeavors and great cheerleaders who give you a comfortable home to escape to, while you help them feel secure and confident.

Capricorn & Money & Career
When it comes to money, you’re very careful about making decisions. You don’t want to feel rushed into anything, and you don’t want to fall prey to any schemes. You know people will do anything to take your money, and you’re extra cautious to make sure that doesn’t happen. You carefully take in all information and make detailed plans for your financial future.
You create budgets that you stick to, but you don’t have any problem buying items that are incredibly expensive, just because they show the kind of status you want. The more of those types of items you have, the more you feel that you’ve succeeded in life, but you won’t spend the money if you don’t have it.
You want stability and understand that means being smart financially. You’ll lend money to friends and family if you have it to spare, but you’ll make sure they pay you back, and even create terms for it.
When it comes to your profession, you’re an incredibly hard worker once you’ve set your mind to a goal. You try to be practical in your approach to your goals, but you can make pretty big goals for yourself. You believe in yourself and that you’ll do anything you want.
Being so ambitious, many of you can be great politicians (and Capricorn rules politicians). You can also work for the government in some other capacity. You don’t want a job where you’ll be working hard for someone else and you’re never recognized for your work.
You also can have a hard time taking orders, and would much rather be the boss and delegate tasks. Some of you are downright bossy! But really, you feel comfortable being in charge, and think you do a better job at it than most, so you can be CEOs and run major corporations. Some other Capricorn professions are: carpenter, dentist, orthopedist, civil engineer, chiropractor, mason.

Capricorn & Health
Capricorn rules the bones and joints, and you can have issues with arthritis, osteoporosis, and especially bad knees, which can even give you trouble young. Capricorn also rules the gall bladder, so watch for gall stones. Capricorn is one of the signs that can be plagued with skin problems, and that can include acne for some, but it’s usually dry skin problems, like psoriasis, eczema, and general itching. You need to make sure your skin is well moisturized and you drink plenty of water.
Capricorn, you’re the tenth sign of the zodiac, and known as the most ambitious of them all. When you set a goal for yourself, you won’t stop until you achieve it. You don’t care what you have to sacrifice to get it, and can sacrifice too much at times, which is what makes people say that you’re tragically ambitious. Success is pretty empty if you don’t have a well-rounded life, but it may take you time to learn that.
You always seem to be older than you are when you’re young, and as you get older, you seem younger. You age in reverse! When you’re young, you’re serious, a loner, and concerned with big issues, but as you get older, you learn how to have fun and get in touch with your inner child.
You set yourself up when you’re young to have a stable life with security as you get older, and you don’t have to worry about those things anymore.
You’re responsible, not having any trouble with your duties, and you try to do the right thing. You take life seriously, seeing the reality of life and understanding how difficult it is to survive. Sometimes you can get lost in the seriousness and become pessimistic, and you have to work on finding the positives.
Your early life may have been difficult for you, but somewhere along the way, it all just clicks for you, and you have an easier time being an adult than being a kid. You can be more of a kid as an adult than when you were that age!

Natal Planets & House Cusps in Capricorn:
Natal Moon in Capricorn
You always seem to have it all together, not matter what’s happening behind closed doors. When things are falling apart at the seams and everyone’s freaking out, you’re calm, cool, and collected. If there’s ever an emergency, I’m looking for a Capricorn Moon! You don’t let your emotions get the better of you, but at times you can take this to the extreme and be distant and cold. Allow yourself to feel sometimes; it may be messy, and usually is because you hold in too much, but everything can’t be perfect. If you learn to let yourself express your feelings and get in touch with them more often, then you’ll be less likely to have any major meltdowns. Let loved ones in on it too, otherwise they may feel that you don’t care about them because you’re shutting them out. You need to feel like you have a great path in life, and that people look up to you. You likely aren’t a big risk taker (unless you have a lot of fire), though you may be ambitious. Planning for the long haul is usually something you’ll do without realizing it, and this makes you seem even more stable.
Natal Mercury in Capricorn
With your natal Mercury in Capricorn, you take a more practical approach. You go for projects that seem realistic to you, and that you know you’ll be able to accomplish. When you communicate, you demand authority, and you’re someone who’s believable. If you have a lot of information to go through, you’ll make it easier by doing a little at a time. You can be a skeptical person, needing to see for yourself how things will work out. Your judgment tends to be pretty good, though you have a hard time with people who are too big and bold. You’re an adept thinker but not usually very quick, thinking a lot about what you say before you say it. You want to be seen as being totally capable, but it keeps you from being more intellectually spontaneous and open.
Natal Venus in Capricorn
With your natal Venus in Capricorn, you take a cautious approach to love. You don’t jump into anything, don’t want anyone too daring, and need to plan things out first. You need a certain level of predictability, and want a partner who is on the same page with your plans. You can come across as someone who doesn’t care much for love, but underneath it all, are romantic and crave a partner. You need to work on being more open externally. You may be overly concerned with the way other people view your relationships, and need to only concentrate on what you think without any judgments from anyone else.
Natal Mars in Capricorn
With your natal Mars in Capricorn, you have control over your energy and focus. You come up with long-term goals and you stick to them easily. You like working hard, and you want to feel as though you’re achieving something in life. Your drive is towards success, and you’ll do whatever it takes to get there. You can hold in too much when you get riled up, and over time, that bottling up of emotion (especially anger) can lead to all sorts of problems. On the surface, you can seem like you’re as cold as stone, despite how grounded you are. You have great self-discipline, and you won’t waste any time on anything that you shouldn’t. You demand the best of yourself, sometimes expecting too much, and dedicate yourself to work even more when you’re upset.

1st House in Capricorn (Capricorn Rising)
You come across as someone who is responsible, ambitious, and disciplined. You seem serious and mature, and you can take your time when you’re working hard at achieving something. You have goals, but you don’t rush them. You have enormous self-discipline, especially in public. People look to you to point out the big picture, the long view, because you understand how one thing leads to another more easily than others. You may be emotionally distant in public, but you can also seem a bit shy or insecure. You carry yourself well in public, and seem more traditional.
2nd House in Capricorn
You’re not a frivolous person, careful with how you spend, invest, and deal with your money. You exercise caution when making financial decisions. You may come across as a little cheap, and can feel like you have less than you actually do. You can get by on very little, and over time, build up your finances so you’re more comfortable later on in life. You can make money through something Capricorn-related, like politics, as a boss or entrepreneur, working with people older than you or with your parents, as a planner, or a career counselor.
3rd House in Capricorn
You don’t like to express your thoughts or opinions with others until you’ve carefully reviewed what you’re going to say, and believe that it needs to be said. You try to only say what needs to be said, and don’t waste your time on anything else. If you don’t have something productive say, you won’t say anything at all. You may seem quiet or secretive as a result. Learning or getting an education may have been difficult when young for some reason, and as you get older, you take studying seriously, and can use it to help you achieve your goals.
4th House in Capricorn
You feel responsible for your family, and assume a lot of the responsibilities. You’re traditional in the way you envision your family to be and your home to be managed, practical with family affairs, and are the one managing everyone. You may not develop a strong family life until later in life, and as you get older, you can be more responsible, mature, and develop a strong foundation.
5th House in Capricorn
You can view your free time as simply more time for you to get work done. You don’t let yourself have fun as much as you should. Letting loose is difficult for you when young. Your creative side may not come out until you’re older. In love, you’re practical and take your time, not wanting to rush into anything and knowing you don’t need to. You’re strict with your children, but you can also teach them a lot.
6th House in Capricorn
You have great self-discipline with work, but you need to make sure the work that you’re doing is fulfilling, or you just waste your time. You prefer to stay in a job for a long time, not wanting instability with work. You can either be a workaholic, or avoid work entirely. You try to be responsible with your health, and can have issues with your skin, bones, nails, and teeth. With Capricorn here, you can work in politics, government, or as an entrepreneur.
7th House in Capricorn
You want a partner who won’t rush you into anything, is loyal, and needs your support. You take your time picking who you want to be with, taking it very seriously, and you may not commit until later in life as a result. In a relationship, you’re supportive of your partner, and they’ll be supportive of you, but you need to make sure there’s no codependency happening.
8th House in Capricorn
You’re cautious and responsible with joint finances and investing. You opt for traditional methods that take time, but have stood the test of time and will work out eventually. You may be responsible for someone else’s finances. You transform to help you mature, grow, and evolve into the person you should be, and to achieve the goals you have.
9th House in Capricorn
Your beliefs tend to be conventional, and you don’t buy into ideas that seem far-fetched. You require facts and figures in order to believe in something. You may not like to travel, and will only do so when required for work or to fulfill a responsibility.
10th House in Capricorn
You take your career very seriously, and work harder than most to achieve what you set out to do. You take the slow, steady, cautious approach, and come across as determined and practical. Success likely comes later in life, after years of hard work and slow progress. You may choose a career that’s Capricorn-related, like in politics, as an entrepreneur, working with people older than you or with your parents, or helping those older than you.
11th House in Capricorn
You don’t have many friends, but are close to the ones you do have. You may sacrifice friendships until you feel you’ve attained the goals you want in life. You work hard toward your dreams, trying to make them a reality, and don’t need anyone’s help.
12th House in Capricorn
Subconsciously, you feel like you’re constantly restricted in your life, no matter what you do. You can seem overwhelmed by responsibility on the outside, but when alone, comfortable, or out of the spotlight, you’re practical, responsible, and focused.
