Capricorn’s strengths and weaknesses:
|Late Bloomer, ages well||Paranoid|
Capricorn is the cardinal earth sign. Cardinal signs are the most ambitious and motivated. Earth signs are the most practical. The duty of Capricorn people is to build something permanent for the future.
Saturn, planet of responsibility, career, ambition and inhibition, is the ruler of Capricorn. He does not sound glamorous, and he really isn’t (although other planets in other signs in the chart can make a Capricorn very glamorous), but where you have Capricorn in your chart, you have the ability to build things that last. Saturn is the planet of age, maturity, and time; and Capricorns also tend to wear their maturity well, and get better with age.
Being an earth sign, Capricorn has a good head for business and can do very well in the business world. They also have a staying power that earns them trust and respect, and a talent for delegating tasks in a managerial position.
Wherever you have Capricorn in your chart, you have a need to be responsible and serious. You have the potential to work hard, learn from your past mistakes, and get better over time. The other potential is for you to isolate yourself, possibly using your loneliness as a shield to avoid closeness with other people. Many Capricorns are really hard on themselves, often holding themselves up to an outside standard of success.
The challenge for Capricorn is to remember to honor and nurture others on the way up. As they climb the ladder of success, remember who is at the bottom holding it up! Interpersonal relationships can be difficult, since Capricorn can use work and achievement in the outside world to avoid the emotional responsibility required in close relationships.
