The buck stops here!  As a Capricorn, your focus is on money; keeping it, that is.  You push the envelope to go beyond mere survival by creating a solid foundation for longevity and financial growth.

Capricorn is practical, disciplined and patient with a keen eye for details. Finances are your domain, whether you are a CPA, bookkeeper or just keeping track of your own stash of cash.

You may be considered a “late bloomer”, since much of your time is spent going from one extreme to another. You are often misunderstood.  You will be deeply entrenched in discovering the differences between two opposing sides, and before you know it, you are off on another balancing act.

Your unwillingness to learn from others slows the growth process, but to you, there is no other way.  You must try on all of life’s dilemmas yourself before finding what really fits.  A seasoned Capricorn’s life has many chapters since their journey takes them in many directions, seeking answers to their quandary.

As a Capricorn, you are more comfortable being behind the scenes, guiding the out-front leaders to success.  Why be out there on the front lines, when you can control all the action from a much safer place?

Energies: Will energy expressing itself as the leader behind the scenes; Manifestation energy expressing itself as a grounding force; and Balance energy expressing itself as the center.

Will Energy

Because of this very strong will energy, you are not afraid of authority figures.  You are a “King Maker.”  You are the one in the background pulling the strings and making your strategies come together.  You use will energy to cut through and destroy anything that doesn’t work.

Manifestation Energy

Manifestation is bringing something all the way down to Earth and grounding it. Your constant evaluation of all matters, your ability to see what isn’t right and your insistence that things be fair and just, assures survival and success for the long term.

Balance Energy

As a Capricorn, you use physical activity to keep you from spending too much time in the outermost realm.  Since you must personally experience these radical differences, you tread in the danger zone of life.  In your quest to find balance, you utilize physical activity that makes you a moving target, rather than getting too comfortable in any extreme.

Virtues: Practical, disciplined and patient.


You are good at managing money matters.  You can also deal with problems and difficulties with a clear head.  You sort things out, look at all sides, play the devil’s advocate to gather more information and end up with a fair conclusion for both sides.


Even in a difficult or stressful situation, you have the ability to stay calm and collected.  You know your own power, but don’t use it unless you have given it much consideration.


As a Capricorn you are able to endure waiting, delay and even provocation without becoming annoyed.  Your trigger is slow to be pulled, as you understand that some things take time.  Once pulled though, you are hurled into another polar opposite.

Vices: Pessimistic, cold, aloof and stubborn.

Your negative characteristics are really just your positive qualities that are not yet balanced. That just means your vices are still in progress and haven’t yet matured into the virtues they will become.


“What is the worst thing that could happen”? Your cup is half-empty instead of half-full.  Since you tend to play on both ends of the scale, your song can be a sad tail. Don’t stay there too long or you may believe that is the only answer.

Cold and Aloof

You spend time alone trying to figure things out and can appear cold and aloof.  If you acknowledge that you need alone-time, others will be more receptive and understand your methods.


“Don’t fix me” and “Don’t rush me”, are your forte. You will not look for help from anyone outside of yourself. You will take forever to figure out what the answer is, but it may be right under your nose if you are just willing to listen.


Capricorns are always taking apposing sides, playing the devil’s advocate.  These abilities are often expressed as mediators, finding a fair and just solution for all.  Their attention to detail brings them into the field of finance, bookkeeping, tax advisors and CPAs.  They are able to see the whole picture and restructure business to be long-lasting and profitable.

Relationship Compatibility

The winter solstice (shortest day of the year) Capricorn, meets with the summer solstice (longest day of the year) Cancer.  You have an instant sexual magnetic attraction. Your strong will is matched with that of Aries and Leo, bringing out the best of each of your signs.

Libra and Cancer are the two signs that are most compatible when it comes to communication.  The family setting is more to Cancer’s liking.  Scorpio matches Capricorn in dark power, and can activate the dark-side nature.  Be careful as it can be overpowering.
