Ruled by Saturn, Capricorns are essentially self repressive, passive, restrained, with qualities of enterprise and practicality.
Traditionally they are cautious, methodical and work patiently and perseveringly to achieve their desired results. Their life may not always be easy but they are resilient and their self-discipline will help they through most of the problems that they encounter. They are able to plan carefully, coolly and deliberately to achieve their ambitions and they do not give up easily.
Mentally they can be cool and calculating and can appear quite a severe and down to earth person to others.
In love they are a serious and faithful lover and enter into relationships with an element of cautious reserve. They do not find it easy to demonstrate their affection but will stick by their mate through thick and thin.
Financially they are prudent and they drive a hard bargain. They acquire to keep and prefer to save rather than invest. Property and land are their main interests and if they gamble they take risks or seem to go for the most improbable options.
Their ideal occupation is working for the benefit of the community or a business, for example, as a scientist, manager, headmaster, engineer, politician, farmer or mathematician. They exercise authority and constructive systems of production and administration.
They value their independence and have an instinctive need for self-sufficiency.
Physiologically they could suffer afflictions of the knees, skin and digestive upsets through over acidity - often as a result of worrying and suppressing their emotions and feelings.
