Capricorns are the 10th astrological sign of the zodiac.
Capricorn season begins on the same day as the winter solstice, which is the longest day of the year, indicating the 10th zodiac sign’s resilient attitude and growth mindset. The Capricorn’s authentic nature comes from a place of deep introspection and stillness, as the last Earth sign in the zodiac signs is ruled by Saturn, the 10th house. The goat’s legacy is of the utmost importance to them as Capricorns are driven by developing a strong social reputation and achieving their goals.
Capricorns are ruled by Saturn and are an Earth sign.
Depicted as the strong mountain sea goat scaling a mountain top, Capricorns are relentless when it comes to pursuing their goals. Their astute focus and resolute nature give them a deep sense of purpose, highlighting their abundance of willpower and resolve. Known as the hustler of the zodiac, the Capricorn’s internal mantra pushes them forward, as the steely mountain goat knows that they will only eat if they are willing to work for their meal. The determined Capricorn knows that dreams will remain an illusion unless action is taken. Grounded in reality and exuding pure main character energy, it’s easy to see why Capricorns are a pragmatic Earth sign.
Capricorns are most compatible with fellow Capricorns and Tauruses as the Earth signs are both practical and patient in nature, sharing similar values, like loyalty and responsibility.
Water signs like the Pisces, Scorpio and Cancer, which is a sister sign, will also enjoy a spiritual connection with Capricorns, as the signs can work together to create a safe space for honest and vulnerable communication.
Earth (Capricorn, Taurus, Virgo) + Water (Pisces, Cancer, Scorpio) = a garden with plenty of water and nurturing not only thrives but survives.
Earth (Capricorn, Taurus, Virgo) + Earth (Capricorn, Taurus, Virgo) = an abundance of soil creates the blueprint for an ever-expanding garden.
The Capricorn mantra is, “Will you respect the architecture I build around my highest self, acknowledging the grace of my drive?” These driven hustlers will stop at nothing to bring forth the complete crystallization and transformation of their wildest dreams, reminding us that life is short and we must celebrate our experiences as a parade.
Capricorns are known for their persistence and ability to keep going, even when things get rough, engendering an untouchable energy that propels the initiation of our idealistic visions into full gear. The Capricorn’s ability to romanticize their life as a Greek epic allows them to view circumstances, karma, time and restrictions as whispering guides, encouraging our self-governed paths, whereas the obstacles that come our way are a means to test our stamina and desire for said dreams. Capricorns in turn continue to inspire us with their innate wisdom, grounding force and raw dedication to build and expand.
Capricorn’s desire to want the best out of life may lead them to be overly influenced by power and material wealth. The Earth sign’s laser focus on their end goals may also mean they are never satisfied and put off celebrating small accomplishments. It’s easy for the pressure to succeed to morph into an unhealthy obsession that prioritizes physical treasures over people.
When challenges or the weight of your responsibilities arise, contemplate and celebrate previous accomplishments, reminding yourself that the journey is as rewarding as the end goal. You’ve carved a beautiful world for yourself that invites others to share in your accomplishments and success, only if you allow them. After all, what we give power has power, and sometimes the pressure to succeed morphs into an obsession that prioritizes the material over people and passions. Taking inspiration from Buddhist principles, we practice releasing our grasp on attachments, things and people that no longer serve our purpose, reminding ourselves that in the end these things matter most: How well did you love? How fully did you live? How deeply did you let go?
Love & Sex
The Capricorn’s romantic relationships are filled with adoration and heartfelt gestures, as the 10th sign of the zodiac loves to shower the apple of their eye with gifts and one-of-a-kind experiences. To be with a Capricorn is to be immersed in love and affection, as they take their time when observing and understanding the people around them, with an emphasis on the partnerships they pursue romantically. Once a Capricorn sets their eyes on their love, their loyalty and devotion is forever.
Capricorns are most likely the personal cheerleader or manager of the friend group, as they want their friends to succeed as well. Often the one to give you the truth or a much-needed pep talk, Capricorns inspire their close circle to kill it at life with them, as they only want the best for those they love.
Known as the architects of the zodiac, the Capricorn archetype appears at the top of a cliff, surveying the vast landscape below as they contemplate the blueprint they’ll create to bring together and build their empire. With competitive advantages rooted in persistence and tenacity, their gifts inspire others to achieve the “impossible,” influencing others to invest in their own potential. As the last cardinal earth sign of the zodiac, Capricorn energy emits a leadership know-how that effectively brings people together in a kind and thorough manner with key attention to their vision.
