Capricorn, the 10th sign of the zodiac, is known as the most hard-working and the most ambitious. In fact, Capricorn would benefit from not taking themselves or their lives as seriously they do — but that’s way easier said than done for a Capricorn. They were built to be successful, and they feel a huge drive to surpass their own expectations and crush all of their goals. But unlike some super assertive signs, Capricorn isn’t extremely flashy when it comes to their determined nature. They keep it really low-key, only speaking when they feel like what they have to say improves upon the silence, and only laughing when they truly mean it. Capricorn keeps it real, even if it’s too real for the masses to handle, and that’s what makes them so special and unforgettable. The sarcastic and cynical Capricorn plays absolutely no games.
When you ask a Capricorn what they want to achieve, the list will be endless, and it will be extremely impressive. Capricorns thrive in positions of authority, such as being a business person, a lawyer, an entrepreneur, a principal or administrator, etc…They don’t do as well when it comes to taking orders from others, and that’s mostly because Capricorn does a much better job of calling the shots — they intuitively know what must be done to get the best possible results and they wouldn’t want to waste any time trying out other methods. Even if Capricorn works for someone else, they often become distinguished team members who are given leadership positions anyways.
Having a Capricorn as a friend means that you have a constant shoulder to lean on. But don’t think that means cry on — Capricorn has little tolerance for people who feel sorry for themselves. Capricorn is the zodiac sign that experiences the most challenge on average in their lifetime, but that also makes them the wisest and most mature of all the signs. But that explains why Capricorn will not waste their time feeling sorry for their friends or family members. They know what it means to fight and to be a warrior, and they will love you in a tough-love manner to teach you to stay strong and keep pushing.
As a lover, Capricorn has to constantly work on tearing down the walls they so carefully built up. Capricorn must also avoid letting their workaholic tendencies cause a rift in any relationship they do begin. Capricorn is best suited for a relationship where their partner agrees to let them pursue their passions and independent interests, and where they can feel motivated and inspired by their partner. They can’t be with someone who is unsure about their life direction or who holds them back from going after their ultimate goal. Still, Capricorn’s romantic lesson is to avoid trying to check off all the items of what an “ideal match” looks like, and to open up to the variety of possibilities that the Universe may present them with. They very well may surpass their expectations. Sometimes the high standards that Capricorn impose are more liberating than anything. Capricorn can shock their lover by loving them uninhibitedly, and without skepticism. It takes a very special kind of lover to see that side of Capricorn, though. It’s worth all the effort.
