A Capricorn is a complex character, something that a lot of people may not see. What most see is a boring and square personality and someone who revels in following the rules at all times.
Beneath the dull exterior, however, lies an interesting and intense individual waiting for the opportune moment to show their true colors. If you get to know them, they are definitely the ones you should have in your life. Here are the top ten signs you are a Capricorn ( December 22 – January 19)
1. They are hard workers and selfless.
Capricorns are one of the hardest-working signs of the zodiac and almost never call out of work or slack off on their jobs. They place a high value on ambition and advancing (honestly and patiently) in their careers. They pride themselves on being highly productive and will thrive best in work environments that challenge them.
They’re not afraid to work really, really hard to reach their goals. They are passionate about everything they do. Capricorns might be perfectionists, so they are probably their own worst critics. They are never satisfied with whatever they achieve and always prepare for the grand show. It is like they work so secretly that their success creates a robustious atmosphere eliminating the abdominal lull. Responsible, caring, and diligent.
Who wouldn’t want a Capricorn working for them?
Capricorns have an angelic way about them. Capricorns are very considerate and devoted to helping others. This trait is ingrained in them and they are just inclined to help others out. Always there to lend a helping hand and always thinking about others before themselves.
In someone’s time of need, it will be Capricorns who come forth with a helping hand. It is often a Capricorn who will put their friend’s needs before their own. They are not those souls who love to live for themselves. Instead, they cherish tending to others.
2. They are actually shy.
Capricorns are reserved. They never reveal their inner side since they are soft inside and a hard nutshell for the outer world. They know that there is only one road that leads them to the accomplishment of their goals and thus they work secretly and keep them dispatched from others and don’t allow anyone to guess what’s cooking inside.
Their reserve nature reveals their shy nature. Capricorns doesn’t get comfortable with such people likely. They tend to be introverts who are generally quite reserved around people, at least until they get to know them better. They take time to get cozy with the surroundings. They take time to adjust because they want themselves to appear polite and surely they are.
This might make them seem a little self-centered and cold to people who don’t know them. It’s only with people they know well that Capricorns are comfortable expressing affection.
3. They love MONEY.
Capricorns are occasionally accused of being materialistic, but for the most part, they just like to take care of their finances in ways they consider practical and safe. They desire money because theirs is a long-lived sign. They fear being dependent on others when they are old. They are not afraid of love, but one can say their ambition is fueled by financial gain. Living comfortably and being secure is a desire for Earth Signs, especially.
Finding love is something Capricorn hopes for but to be blunt, they know love doesn’t pay the bills. Capricorns are cautious when it comes to money. They prefer to save their money today for something better tomorrow. They like to spend their money on the best and will save up until they get the best. Tacky and cheap are not in their dictionary.
4. They are not big risk-takers.
Capricorns have a fixed agenda in life and will not do anything rash or wild. They have a full life chart planned out for themselves and thus can never be strayed in their path. As Capricorns are good planners and have goals in their life, they inevitably have future plans. They are very careful and responsible in planning their future.
They are not risk-takers. Risks make Capricorns nervous. Ever the pragmatist, a Capricorn is more likely to employ familiar routines and processes that have worked well for others rather than trying something new him/herself. They would pass up the small gains for long-term happiness and benefits.
Although they are ready to take up challenges, they hesitate to adopt unconventional or innovative methods to deal with them. And, this tendency of them may, at times, may go too far, and they may lose on excellent opportunities in life. Not that the Goats will regret it, though! They will either find another, better one or shall completely forget about it – that Rigid a Goat can be.
5. Their sarcasm game is on point.
Capricorns are often masters of sarcastic, deadpan wit. Capricorns have an excellent sense of humor, which tends to be rather wry or dark. When Capricorns feel hurt, this humor can become sarcastic and cruel, but the rest of the time they are inclined to be diplomatic, preferring to avoid unnecessary conflict.
6. They are extremely loyal and reliable. Their close friends know they can always count on Capricorns.
Capricorns valuing honor and tradition, are typically very dependable and loyal friends. When it comes to relationships, Capricorns will always be faithful. But, they won’t open their hearts to just anyone. They need someone who won’t be intimidated by their success. Being in a relationship with a Capricorn is all about teamwork.
They love a sense of humor and someone who’s just as real they are. As emotionally guarded as they can be, they will love you eternally and expect you to do the same for them. If you ever dare turn on a Capricorn, you’re going to have to do a lot of legwork to gain back their respect. They may forgive you, but their trust will be lost for good.
7. They were grown up at 5.
Capricorns are the old souls of the zodiac. They are mature beyond their years. When they are young, they seem older and more mature than their peers. Most view children their own age as immature and seek out older companions who are more on their level. Capricorn children are usually good at amusing themselves and not bothering others.
Some Capricorns get picked on in school because they earn good grades or they are shy and withdrawn. If you meet an 18-year-old Capricorn you will usually think they are about 30 after having a conversation with them. Capricorns are old souls and their level of maturity is always the highness in the room. They are tough cookies that don’t crumble in spilled milk.
8. They have a few very close friends but get along with everyone.
Capricorns never reveal their inner side since they are soft inside and a hard nutshell for the outer world. They know that there is only one road that leads them to the accomplishment of their goals and thus they work secretly and keep them dispatched from others and don’t allow anyone to guess what’s cooking inside.
Formally they turn out to be a snake in the bush. Since they are straight forward thus don’t prefer shocks. Their reserve nature reveals their shy nature. Capricorns doesn’t get comfortable with such people likely. They take time to get cozy with the surroundings.
They take time to adjust because they want themselves to appear polite and surely they are. It is the secrecy they maintain which makes their success sweeter and a quite new and heart-filling experience for them too. It is well understood that they generate shock waves all around with their work.
Because Capricorns are such homebodies and people who love passionately Capricorns usually aren’t the type of people to have 20 acquaintances. Capricorns usually have about 3 or 4 close friends that they know they can count on and have built strong relationships with throughout the years.
9. They’ve got an unparalleled bullshit detector.
Capricorns are not afraid to call people out on their lies. They are one of the most truthful signs of the zodiac and can almost never tell a lie. They hate even more when a lie is being told to them so don’t be surprised if you try to get one over on someone and hear your Capricorn friend call you out.
During an argument, a Capricorn always speaks from the heart and will be the one who brings the facts to be a table and not assumptions. Capricorns’ inclination to be suspicious/wary of new people and their meticulous attention to detail make them great judges of character.
They’re able to instinctively pick up on a people’s true motivations and intentions within moments of meeting them… and more often than not they turn out to be right on the money. They never have time for bullshit. Just be real with them and you’ll get their respect.
10. They always get things done.
Capricorns tend to be responsible and finish what they’ve started and honor their commitments. Capricorns are go-getters and usually the hardest working person in the room. Because of this, they are more likely than any sign to succeed and to get things done. They are well aware of what they are supposed to do in life.
Capricorns are considered to be the most resourceful sign of the Zodiac. Levelheaded and creative, a Capricorn is very handy in an emergency or an outer space fight.
11. They are practical and value logic above all.
Capricorn has a practical mind that allows them to tackle and solve complex problems that leave others completely stumped. They have a talent for finding ‘real world’ solutions that actually work even when they have little help and few resources at their disposal.
Capricorn is always the person to organize and navigate. They know exactly what they’re doing and where they’re going, know how to change a tire without any problems. Capricorn shows their emotions and affection through their actions rather than their words. Passionate people can attract them, yet intimidate them at the same time.
They have a lot to offer for those who are up to the challenge of getting to know them. Capricorns love law and order and you are dogmatic in your view that a rule is a rule and an order is an order, everything has to be sensible.
Capricorn intellects are sometimes subtle. They think profoundly and deeply, thoroughly exploring all possibilities before deciding on a safe alternative. They have good memories and an insatiable, yet methodical, desire for knowledge.
Rational, logical, clear-headed, and with good concentration powers. Capricorns are skilled in debate, where they can lure others into traps and confound them with their logic. Capricorn is ruled by their logic instead of instinct and emotions.
They understand when an instinct is wrong it can mislead you and how emotions block a logic-centered approach to life. A world of dreams is something which is not meant for Capricorn to see or live in because they have to live struggling life and they are hence equally stubborn to reach there.
12. They are respectful and soft-spoken
Capricorns are hospitable and respectful enough to consider other people’s views and opinions. They never tend to shun off others’ views, but instead, listen to them. It’s not in their nature to ignore other people’s thoughts. They are thoughtful about others’ views too. If you’re thoughtful too, you will gel along with a Capricorn.
They understand other people’s problems and are very thoughtful about them. They will never make fun of others’ problems or worries. If you happen to be in deep trouble, they will help you but never mock or taunt you about it.
Capricorns are basically peaceful people. They dislike the hustle and bustle of daily life. If given an option, they would happily stay at a farmhouse in a small town. They prefer a quiet, calm, and composed life as opposed to a hectic one. They find happiness in living in tranquility and this makes them placid and uncomplaining too. Capricorns don’t like negative energy and almost never raise their voices or have a bad word to say about anyone.
13. They are loners at heart.
They have a bundle of conflicting emotions and an internal struggle brewing inside of them. There’s a sense of melancholy and loneliness within them that they often feel but manage to hide. They are loners at heart. Their desire for fame and success, combined with their independent nature and natural inhibition, Capricorns tend to be the loners of the zodiac.
Many Capricorns have tunnel vision when it comes to their goals. They disregard everything else – family, friends, even their own emotions – while in pursuit of their goal. They know they have what it takes to complete the job, so the “I don’t need you” attitude often turns others off. Underneath their determined and perceptive spirit is someone who often feels insecure and doubtful of their steps.
Because of this, they try to be very self-contained, and they usually put up many faces to present to the world. They desire an emotional connection, but they often make it difficult to get emotionally close to anyone because they know that once they let someone in, they’ll end up fearing that they’ll lose them.
