Astrology - Capricorn the Goat Character
Ruled by the planet of ambition and prudence, Saturn, and with a feminine (receptive) nature, Capricorn is reactive in its energy. A Cardinal (creative and inventive) sign, Capricorn governs public life and organisation, with personal ambition and the will to succeed.
Capricorns have a persistent feeling that you must develop into something. You must have some accomplishment to point to, some property to look after, or some obligation to fulfil, which may be business, politics, or the social or intellectual fields. You have excellent intuitions and use them in your struggle to achieve personal independence and economic security.
You have great faith in your own power, and are worldly and careful. Asking for no mercy from anyone, you drive a hard, but not unjust bargain.
You are old when you are young, and young when you are old. and can live to a ripe old age.
With a tendency to be gloomy and, at times, lonely, you behave on the principle that the world is a place in which every man is for himself. Yet you do have a sensitive personality and want very much to be appreciated.
Like your symbol, the mountain goat, you are steady and sure-footed but have a tendency to not only climb the mountain but create the mountain which you climb. Things that stand in your way to the top, however, never deter you.
