Here Are the 3 Main Characteristics of a Capricorn:

Whether this sign belongs to you or not, this information will help you understand this cool, collected earth sign a little better.

1. This Earth Sign Goddess Is a Dreamer AND Doer

Capricorn has high aspirations for herself and is prepared to do whatever it takes to make it happen. This sign refuses to let fear, or any other obstacle, keep her on the sidelines.

She sees a vision board as a to-do list, and won’t wait around to let serendipity make its rounds . . . but she isn’t a blind risk-taker either. Thanks to her ruling planet of Saturn, stability, self-discipline and patience are all key strengths of the Capricorn sign.

She’s always focused on the big picture, even if it means sacrificing a wild night out on the town. But she also knows how to have a good time. Her easy-going and confident personality makes her a friendly face in a crowd of strangers. However, while Capricorn has many acquaintances, only a lucky few get accepted into her inner circle.

2. Capricorn Never Settles

Capricorn is gifted with seeing everything as a project or opportunity. With a laser focus and keen ambition, she finds joy in her work. This also means she must find purpose in everything she does, and she plans on changing the world!

To achieve her vision, she’ll go above and beyond, put in extra hours and burn the midnight oil without batting an eyelash.

Is Mercury in retrograde, or are you feeling an existential crisis looming around the corner? Call up your Capricorn sign friend. Her realist perspective will shake you up and out of your comfort zone, igniting the growth you need. Or, she’ll offer you a stable shoulder to lean on and help pick up the pieces.

3. Capricorn Zodiac Knows how to Keep Her Cool

No matter the situation, the Capricorn sign knows how to stay neutral, calm and collected. She’s able to find stability in chaos, which makes her an asset to the workplace. She isn’t fazed by tight deadlines or demanding bosses. In fact, she welcomes the challenge, allowing her resourcefulness and experience to make impressive judgment calls.

And when it comes to love, her allure is so fierce it’s almost intimidating. It takes a rare individual to tap into Capricorns emotional depth. Once they do, they’ll know her for the truly special person she is and they’ll be treated with an unshakable love and devotion that the world only gets a glimpse of.
