I am a Scandinavian woman who has been writing online content for a few years. I love to write about and research zodiac signs.


What You Need to Know About This Power Sign

What do Nostradamus, Rudyard Kipling, Joan of Arc, Sir Isaac Newton, and Muhammed Ali have in common? They are all Capricorns.

Capricorns are born between December 22 and January 20.

The zodiac's 10th sign in astrology, you are a Capricorn if you were born on the days spanning the twenty-second of December until the twentieth of January of any year.

Capricorns have high achieving characteristics. People who are born under the zodiac sign of Capricorn are business and life achievers in different aspects of life. There are two different types of Capricorn which are categorized as garden and mountain goats.

The first type of Capricorn which is the garden goat is characterized as very adventurous, while the other one is characterized as highly ambitious wherein they make sure to achieve every goal that they have in their lives.

Both types of Capricorn are usually very persevering and patient, especially when it comes to reaching the goals that they have. They very well know that achieving something doesn't happen overnight and that the first stage of every goal is usually the hardest part of all.

Being such great achievers, all Capricorns can sometimes forget their personal lives, which can sometimes put their own fulfillment emotionally at risk. That is why they are being advised to know how to balance everything from career to their personal lives.

The Emotional Aspects of Capricorns

Capricorns tend to prove themselves more to other people compared to the status quo, even if they are already doing everything that they can. The reason behind this is because they typically feel very unworthy in everything that they usually do.

Most of the people who are born under the astrological sign of Capricorn need to love themselves before worrying about what other people will think of them. This is necessary because this is the only way to the door that leads them to the other side of life, where fun and pleasure can be experienced.

Capricorns also feel the need for material and financial security. These two aspects are important for them to be able to succeed in every step that they make, whether it is about their career or about their personal lives.

Usually, Capricorns need to feel that they are being appreciated by people around them because they have the tendency to become loners if they feel worthless around other people.

They typically have some qualities that the world and even themselves cannot always comprehend, which can sometimes create a feeling of unworthiness and insecurity.

They sometimes have a hard time making friends because once they get too attached they are having a hard time letting go of the connections that they already created. This kind of feeling can sometimes make them feel very vulnerable but still satisfied no matter what.

The Capricorn Career

Capricorns are usually well driven when it comes to working, and they make sure to achieve everything that they want when it comes to the career that they have.

They are known to climb the ladder to success and be the best that they can be. The reason behind this is because they want to prove themselves to the people around them.

People who are under this astrological sign are excellent when it comes to managing their career and time, which makes them great organizers.

They also have the tendency to execute plans with their creativity, although they are not that spontaneous.

They are known to be good investors because they always ensure that they are going to invest in something that will multiply in value over time. This kind of attitude will help them to experience the benefits that life has to offer.

So You are Attracted to a Capricorn

If you are planning to attract a Capricorn, make sure to find out what makes them smile and laugh. They want someone who can make them happy as well because they have the tendency to become melancholy.

You also need to make sure to make Capricorns feel as comfortable as possible, for them to be able to feel safe whenever they are with you. If you are going to converse with a Capricorn, make sure to talk about things that are sensible because they don't like hearing things that are senseless. Being intellectual is usually the key to attract them to you.

If you are planning to give them gifts, make sure to buy something that is useful and very practical because expensive ones don’t usually amaze them.

Going out with Capricorns would be nice, but make sure to bring them to fancy, high-class restaurant. They are not into underrated, mediocre stuff, so keeping everything top quality and high class would be ideal.

You also need to make sure to be on time whenever you are meeting a Capricorn because they are probably on a schedule. Now once you get to show your self-worth to a Capricorn, you will surely get their loyalty to you in the future.

Dating a Capricorn

Women under the astrology sign of Capricorn tend to be loving and very romantic, especially once you get to know them.

If this is your first time to date a Capricorn, you might first be under the impression that she is not into dating and love.

You will be challenged to pursue her until you get to gain her trust, but you should be aware that you need to be patient because this will definitely take time.

Courting her is going to be necessary for you to be able to capture her heart. You also need to make sure that you are ready to give her gifts that are useful and avoid something that is expensive and useless.

Once you capture her heart, you will be amazed at how she handles the relationship that both of you have.

Men on the other hand are emotional and passionate, and they can make you feel special in their own little ways. But you should be aware that they typically have a hard time trusting the opposite sex, due to a variety of reasons.

They are also full of love, but it will take time before that feeling becomes real. If you want to capture their hearts, then make sure to show them how much you admire them, but don't do it too much because it might give them a different meaning.

Capricorn men have a lot to offer when it comes to love and relationship, so if you're willing to experience these things, then being patient would definitely be ideal.

      I love being a Capricorn (I was born on 3 Jan) but I'm still not sure what type of capricorn I am. I'm the silly one in my group of friends and always make people laugh. I do like to achieve goals but most of the time it won't happen. Also, I'm not that adventurous but then yet I do want to do most activities that my friends won't but not that brave. So I guess I could be both???????
