Capricorns are patient, realistic and responsible and they take life seriously. They need security but they may find this difficult to achieve. Many live on a treadmill of work, simply to pay the bills and feed the kids. They will never shun family responsibilities, even caring for distant relatives if this becomes necessary. However, they can play the martyr while doing so. These people hate coarseness, they are easily embarressed and they hate to annoy anyone. Capricorns believe fervently in keeping the peace in thier families. This doesn't mean that they cannot stand up for themselves, indeed they know how to get their own way and they won't be bullied. They are adept at using charm to get around prickly people.
Capricorns are ambitious, hard-working, patient and status-conscious and they will work their way steadily towards the top in any organisation. If they run their own businesses, they need a partner with more pizazz to deal with sales and marketing for them while they keep an eye on the books. Their nit-picking habits can infuriate others and some have a tendency to 'know best' and not to listen. These people work at their hobbies with the same kind of dedication that they put into everything else. They are faithful and reliable in relationships and it takes a great deal to make them stray.
If a relationship breaks up, they take a long time to get over it. They may marry very early or delay it until middle age when they are less shy. As an earth sign, Capricorns are highly sexed but they need to be in a relationship where they can relax and gain confidence. Their best attirbute is their genuine kindness and their wonderfully dry, witty sense of humour.
Tarot Card: King of Pentacles
Mythological Reference is: Midas
The King of Pentacles is symbolised by a dark-haired man seated upon a fine throne that is decorated with the heads of mountain goats, the symbol of Capricorn. This sign desires status and some kind of position in the world. In consequence, social acceptance is therefore of great importance. To achieve their goal, a strong sense of determination and powerful will is detected. Very disciplined and organised, this sign wastes no resources that are not entirely necessary. They usually continue the family traditions and project the way to behave correctly onto others.
