Talking about emotions will not be easy with this sign, but once they open up, Capricorns and their partners can have a relationship of eternal growth.

What influences Capricorn?

Capricorn is the tenth sign of the zodiac and is represented by the Goat. Those born under this sign are generally pragmatic, ambitious and disciplined, although they can also be somewhat stoic and pessimistic.


Capricorns belong to the Earth element (as do Taurus and Virgo), which makes sense considering how grounded they are in reality when it comes to fulfilling their dreams.


In fact, Capricorns see everything as a task to be completed, which makes them an incredibly independent and hard-working type. They can accomplish anything they set their minds to, regardless of the energy it takes, as long as they have a clear goal and a path to get there.


However, this also means that Capricorns can hold other people to incredibly high standards. Because Capricorn is connected to Saturn, a symbol of restriction and limitation, Capricorn's personality can sometimes seem distant, emotionless and overly analytical; therefore, it is important to occasionally relax and get in touch with your feelings through activities such as meditation.


Capricorns value tradition and tend to be more conservative.

Capricorn personality: 6 key traits

What kind of positive and negative traits does the Capricorn personality have? On the good side, Capricorn is hard-working, ambitious and responsible. Meanwhile, on the bad side, the Capricorn sign is pessimistic, work-obsessed and stubborn.

Positive traits of Capricorn

Capricorns are devoted rule followers and seekers who will always do whatever it takes to fulfil their dreams. Here, we present the three best characteristics of Capricorns.


#1: Worker


Capricorns are one of the most diligent signs of the zodiac. They are persistent when it comes to specific tasks, such as work-related projects and school papers, and they work hard to ensure that they get the result they want (whether it's a promotion or a 10, for example). This trait is by far one of the best things about Capricorns: they never give up!


Even if they lack natural talent in something, they are compelled to do it well and meet their goals simply because of their can-do attitude. They are always willing to learn new skills if they believe they will help them achieve their goals.


In short, never underestimate the tenacity of a Capricorn!


#2: Ambitious


Capricorns are extremely ambitious people with lofty goals that they are sure they can achieve, as long as they keep working hard and trying their best. They are always driven to do better - better than themselves and better than others - and this drive is what ultimately sustains them during those long, gruelling hours they spend on whatever it is they are trying to achieve.


Rewards are naturally expected once a Capricorn reaches the top, and these can be anything from money to job security to fame.


If you are looking for someone to partner with on a project, a Capricorn should definitely be one of your top choices!


#3: Responsible


As a result of their hard-working and ambitious attitudes, Capricorns are very responsible types with a mature, pragmatic and disciplined approach to following rules, staying organised and pursuing their goals.


They recognise their mistakes and learn quickly from them, enabling them to successfully use these obstacles to their advantage.


Capricorns are especially good at keeping track of important things, such as passwords and homework assignments, and are known to have a keen eye for interior design as well.

Negative traits of Capricorn

None of us are perfect... and that goes for Capricorns too. Here are three of the worst characteristics of this sign.


#1: Pessimistic


Being practical and grounded is not always a good thing, especially when it causes you to focus on all the negative aspects of life. Capricorn's strict, no-nonsense attitude can cause them to overlook the good in life, causing them to feel unfulfilled and deeply unhappy.


When a Capricorn thinks too much about how things look rather than how they feel about them, they can get stuck in a cycle of negativity and mood swings.


Perfectionism is a problem for many Capricorns, as it regularly causes them to perceive failure as the ultimate disappointment. If things are not perfect, Capricorns can easily become discouraged and adopt a negative view of their future, which undoubtedly affects the mood of those around them as well.


#2: Workaholic


Capricorns are admirably hard workers, but they also have a tendency to overexert themselves, often to the point of exhaustion. This obsession with success and perfection means that Capricorn will stop at nothing, not even to rest and relax, to make their dreams come true.


Being a workaholic puts a ton of stress and pressure on Capricorn and is one way the sign works against its greatest strength. Since Capricorn can be extremely hard on themselves, it is advisable for them to take an occasional break to focus on their physical and emotional health.


#3: Stubborn


Capricorn thrives on ambition and diligence, but not everyone is like this, which can lead this sign to become stubborn and demand incredibly - sometimes impossible - standards from others.


Because Capricorns value tradition and have a strict way of thinking, they often struggle to open their minds and find it difficult to change their perspectives. They are too focused on the practical and materialistic side of things to look beyond themselves.

Characteristics of Capricorn in love, friendship and business

Capricorns can be overly practical and stubborn at times, but they are also devoted and loyal to their loved ones. Here is an overview of how Capricorns fare in different types of relationships.

Capricorn in love

When it comes to romantic relationships, Capricorns' personalities are an unusual combination of intense dedication but lacking in emotion. They are a bit rigid and reserved, but that doesn't mean they can't be ideal partners.


Once you get to know a Capricorn on a deeper, more personal level, they are likely to commit to you for life. Although it may take years to get them to open up emotionally, it is worth it for their loyalty, strength and protection.


Capricorns often treat their romantic relationships as if they were their job: they believe that hard work will ultimately mean success for them, their partners and the relationship as a whole. This hands-on approach can sometimes make the relationship feel clinical or unnatural, but it is how Capricorns best express their love and how much they value the relationship.

Capricorn in family and friendship

In family and friendship, Capricorn is a loyal and hardworking person whom you can always rely on to be there for you. Capricorns tend to feel strong connections to family traditions and their past, and generally look forward to birthdays, holidays and group dinners where they can enjoy their memories with loved ones.


Outside the family, Capricorns usually have only a few close friends, but they are reliable and will remain close to them for life, especially those with whom they connect on an honest and intellectual level.


Friends of the domineering Capricorn should avoid acting in a meddlesome and overbearing manner - Capricorn is very independent and as such needs to always be (or at least feel as if they are) in charge of their destiny.

Capricorn in business

The diligent, meticulous and highly organised Capricorn shines in business and work matters. Being success-driven, Capricorns do well in almost any type of work, as long as it provides them with stability and the opportunity to succeed professionally (read: make a lot of money).


Capricorns perform best when they are in charge of their work environment. As mentioned, this sign is known for pulling all-nighters and working until exhaustion, which can be both a good and bad thing.


In addition, Capricorns are very detail-oriented and do well in positions that give them the ability to see long projects through to completion; this, in turn, gives Capricorns a sense of satisfaction and tangible proof of their achievement.


With co-workers, Capricorns are kind and polite and enjoy engaging in intelligent conversation. Above all, they value the loyalty of their co-workers.


Some examples of suitable jobs for Capricorn are as follows:


- Accountant

- Banker

- Business Analyst

- Business Executive

- Economist

- Financial planner

- Human Resources Manager

- Politician

- Director or teacher

- Real estate agent

Advice for the sign of Capricorn

Even if you are a Capricorn, you probably don't have all the Capricorn traits described above. Therefore, what you will need to do is to find out which Capricorn characteristics apply to you. You can then use this knowledge to improve your shortcomings and build on your greatest strengths.


For example, you may consider yourself a hard worker but find that you have not been doing your homework well lately. You can take back control of your schedule by making the most of your organisational skills: make a concrete plan for when you study and work on your homework.


Or maybe you're the ambitious type but don't have a clear goal yet in terms of what you want to do with your life. It doesn't matter. Use this as an opportunity to explore some possible career paths. For example, you could study job shadowing or do an internship to get a feel for the areas and types of work that might interest you.


Now, what about Capricorn's negative traits?


If you feel like you've been working too hard lately, either at work or at school, take a step back to breathe. It may help to set aside time to relax or take up a hobby. You can also try meditation and deep breathing exercises to relieve residual stress.


Feeling pessimistic and overly critical of the world or your life lately? Then consider coming up with a positive mantra that you can say to yourself every morning, such as three things you are grateful, excited or proud of yourself for doing.


You could also make friends with one of the more optimistic signs, such as Aries or Leo, so that their positive energy rubs off on you a little.

How to get along with a Capricorn

Capricorns are generally friendly to those they meet, but it can take a while for them to come out of their shells, so you have to be patient. Once you make friends with a Capricorn, however, they will be a loyal companion who takes to heart what you say, even if they disagree with you.


One way to get to know Capricorns is to offer to participate in a new activity together, such as a cooking class or a language group. Capricorns love to learn new skills and usually won't say no to a challenge. It is also helpful to know if you want to ask a Capricorn out on a date.


Don't forget that Capricorns take pride in family traditions and enjoy large gatherings to celebrate holidays and birthdays, so these are perfect events where you can really get to know a Capricorn.


If you work alongside a Capricorn, be sure to take their drive seriously, never mock them for their diligence; doing so will only make them even more stubborn (and possibly cause them to resent you! ).


At the same time, don't be afraid to remind them to step back, take a breath and enjoy the moment - it doesn't always have to be all success and future.
