Sun In Capricorn

Sun in Capricorn

Capricorns have the desire to climb whatever mountains are necessary
and to stand on their own two feet in order to work out their
ambitions and their salvation. They are conservative, organized,
methodical, traditional, responsible, honest, efficient, patient,
practical, authoritative, disciplined, serious and goal-oriented. On
the negative side they can be worried, pessimistic, retaliatory,
suspicious, stubborn and intolerant. They are happiest in careers
calling for organizing ability, integrity and perseverance. They have
a fear of failure.

Their quiet exterior makes Capricorns appear to be loners. They build
a wall of reserve around them in order to protect themselves from the
ill winds of the world around them. Nothing gets in the way of their
plans and ambitions. They strive for security by holding fast to duty
and responsibility. Work is very important to them and they do not
take it lightly. Many Capricorns have an inferiority complex and this
sometimes is what drives them so hard to succeed. They want to look
good in front of the world.

Capricorns like to plan their every move, weighing all the pros and
cons of any issue in advance. They are dependable, particularly in a
crisis. When asked, they give sound, practical advice. They are, as a
rule, not aggressive people, and only express hostility as a defense
when attacked.

At times Capricorns can be very sensitive to hurts and feel alone as
if no one understands them. A negative Capricorn will seek
retribution for wrongs done him. Capricorns need people, but they have
a tendency to isolate themselves from people due to their reserve and
fear of being hurt. They can be very loyal to close friends and people
they care about. Respect and recognition is important to them.
Encouragement and praise are essential for motivating a Capricorn.

A fear of being without material things makes it mandatory that
Capricorns have a regular income. Their attainments in life are
accomplished through steady progress rather than through speculation
or get-rich-quick schemes. They have strong self-discipline and
nothing turns them from their course if their mind is made up. They
will give up many pleasures in order to reach their goals. Hard work
invigorates them. Capricorns are thrifty and like to collect things.
They abhor waste. This includes wasting a lot of talk in idle chatter.
Capricorns speak when they have something to say.

Capricorns can be creative but they must at times learn to overcome
their own self-doubts and lack of confidence. Pessimism in their own
abilities can hold them back. They must learn to believe in themselves
and become optimistic. There is no mountain they cannot climb if that
is what they desire to do.

Capricorns have a lot of patience, which is good, because many of
their plans meet with delays, setbacks and obstacles. This teaches
them obedience, which is thus helping them to strive for spiritual
attainment rather than material attainment. For them, work is
therapeutic and is probably the best medicine for whatever ails them,
except overwork, which they are prone to do. It is difficult for a
Capricorn to really relax. They are happiest when busy, even in their
spare time.

Capricorns are thoughtful, self-contained people. Lacking, perhaps,
some of the personal magnetism of some of the other zodiac signs, they
are nevertheless quite tactful, compassionate and warmhearted. Their
own personal sufferings help them identify with the sufferings of
others. In love, Capricorns are as romantic and emotional as anyone
else, but usually they feel inhibited in expressing their emotions.
They are cautious in making a total commitment until they know that
the traits and lifestyle of the possible partner are compatible with
theirs. Once married, they seldom divorce because they feel that any
situation can be worked out, if only worked at hard enough.
