Capricorns are true earth signs. Steadfast, stubborn, and sure, good luck derailing a Capricorn once they’ve made up their mind or set their sights on a goal. Capricorns are unique souls with their own kind of energy, who experience the world in their own way. Here are at least 10 things that every Capricorn knows.
The Value of Hard Work
While other signs might think they are hard workers, they often have nothing on the Capricorn, who values honest and often backbreaking work highly. There is nothing more satisfying to a Capricorn than feeling tired after a day of constructive work. Capricorns reach their goals and relish the hard work, commitment, and discipline it takes to get them where they want to be.
Capricorns often apply this admirable work ethic to everything – their homes, families, careers, and even their romantic partnerships. They know that good things don’t often come easily, and they don’t mind rolling up their sleeves metaphorically or otherwise to get down to business. This star sign would never shirk their responsibilities, but they also realize that it doesn’t always feel like work if you really love it.
The only downside to this perspective is this astrological sign can tilt toward judging others. Because they work so hard, Goats have a tendency of seeing others as lazy and unmotivated. They might need to be reminded that they can’t hold other people to their high standards. Having a little compassion for others could go a long way.
Being The Center Of Attention Isn’t Everything
Despite all of their hard work, Capricorns rarely want any of the glory aside from basking in the glow of a job well done. They want practical and useful rewards that they’ve earned. Whether professionally or personally, you will rarely find a Capricorn clamoring for the spotlight. As long as the people they care about and respect appreciate them, a Capricorn is happy.
While some star signs do everything for the glory, the Goat is satisfied with a job well done and knowing that no one else can do it quite as well as they can. They won’t climb over you for credit, and a high-vibing Cap will even reach a hand out to help you get to the next rung on your career ladder. At the end of the day, this celestial sign knows that being the center of attention isn’t everything, and a job done well is a job well done.
Risk-Taking Is Overrated
While other signs fly by the seat of their pants, Capricorns rarely enter any situation without an exit strategy and even a backup exit strategy. They know what they want, what they need to do to achieve it, and have no time for any fanciful funny business. What others might call spontaneous, Capricorns call reckless. Capricorns don’t make decisions lightly and love to analyze, sometimes even to the extent that they get in their own way.
The risk-averse Goat shouldn’t be mistaken for a big chicken. They don’t lack bravery, but they do prefer to take their time analyzing the pros and cons before making a decision. If you ever spot this analytical Earth sign engaged in risky behavior, you can rest assured that they have crossed every T and dotted every I and evaluated every possible outcome before deciding to go for it. Fortunately or unfortunately as the case may be, Capricorns can also take this attitude toward relationships. They may analyze them to death rather than risking a broken heart. It should be noted that Caps are epic overthinkers, and sometimes, they might need to be reminded that a little spontaneity can be a good thing.
If You Work Hard, You Get To Play Hard
Capricorns get a bad rap for being all work and no play, but the opposite is true. Caps learned early that if you work hard, you get to play hard because you’ve freed up time and have more money to play with too. It makes a lot of sense if you think about it. They’ll be relaxing or living it up while other signs are still stuck in the grind. Goats can sometimes take themselves too seriously, but when they let their hair down, things can get crazy. Who knew this celestial sign could party so hard?
This is part of the reason you’ll see Caps working so hard. Their list of goals often includes leisure activities. They know that if they hustle hard, they’ll get to end the day doing what they love without extra work hanging over their heads. They understand that hard work comes with many rewards, and just one of those rewards includes having the freedom to go out and have a good time with a clear conscience. They love to work hard, play hard, and live the good life.
Age Is Just A Number
Capricorns might start out as studious and reserved, but over time, this star sign usually grows more lighthearted and playful. As Caps age, they discard their serious reputations to seek out joy and fun. They’ve already realized that age is just a number, and they’re really good with numbers.
Plus, Capricorns are likely to see aging as an achievement. It’s almost as though ages are levels they’ve achieved on the game of life. They’ve put in the work time, and they know they’ve earned the right to live it up. Goal-oriented Caps often reach career achievements early and then set new goals for their remaining years. Having a good time and seeing the humor in life might just make the list. While this Zodiac sign is unlikely to suddenly begin seeking attention, you can expect that they’ll age by their own rules and not let any little thing like age come between them and their goals.
Sweating the Small Things Is A Waste Of Time
Capricorns are sometimes mistaken for cold and aloof because they don’t always react to life events the way you think they should. While it seems unfeeling, it’s not that at all. The truth is that the Goat has harnessed the power of perspective. They realize that sweating the small things in life is a gigantic waste of time – and Caps don’t have time to waste.
It’s not that they don’t care. Rather, they are constantly looking at life’s big picture. While this fixed sign absolutely loathes change, they are able to assess if a small bump in the road portends a major catastrophe or is simply an annoyance along the way. It’s true that Caps can sometimes get tunnel-vision about their goals, but as they climb to new heights, they’ll likely be able to see a little further than what’s happening in the moment. While this sign is known for overthinking and even overthinking their overthinking, they’re unlikely to sweat the small stuff when they’ve got bigger obstacles ahead to consider.
Hurdles Are There To Leap Over
Don’t expect the Goat to balk at a challenge. For one thing, this celestial sign is far too stubborn to ever back down from anything unless they’ve done a risk assessment and good sense prevails. Yet, Capricorns don’t look at obstacles the same way as the other horoscope signs. The determined and tenacious Goat sees them as opportunities, hurdles that you’re meant to leap over. They don’t back down because they know that some of the greatest rewards are over the next hurdle.
Clever Capricorns overcome obstacles with sheer tenacity and grit. They don’t give up, and challenges don’t faze them. Part of the reason for this is that Caps set lofty goals, so they’re used to having to hustle, grind, and climb for anything that’s worth having. They may take a minute or two to run through every possible scenario, but then they’re going to get busy climbing. Caps sometimes need to be reminded that not every roadblock is meant to climb. It can take these stubborn Goats a while to realize that some obstacles are meant to direct them down a new path. This fixed Earth sign might ignore this fact for a while, but reason usually wins out in the end.
The Best View Is The One From The Top
Of the 12 Zodiac signs, the Goat is all about the hustle and grind. They didn’t invent it, but they sure have taken it to heart. Capricorns are willing to put their heads down to work, and they know already that their effort will be worth it. They are known for doing whatever it takes to climb to new heights and reach their goals whether that’s personal goals or climbing a career ladder. After all, the best view is usually the one from the top.
Ever-ambitious Capricorns are focused on the future. They don’t mind making little sacrifices if it will help them reach big dreams. And Caps really do dream big! In fact, this often-studious sign makes space in their day for daydreaming – although they may call it manifesting their future or setting intentions for their day. Regardless of what they call it, they know that some things are worth waiting for. What you may need to remind them is that it’s important to enjoy the journey rather than reaching one peak and then setting their sights on newer, bigger heights to climb. If Caps can master this obstacle, they’ll be more likely to enjoy the views along the way to the ultimate one they’re working toward.
Your Only Competition Is Yourself
Caps know that the best way to compete is to do better than your last performance or achievement. While they can be competitive with others, they’re more set on reaching their own goals and encouraging others to do the same. Capricorns have already caught on to this valuable life lesson: Your only competition in life is yourself, not other people.
The downside of this thinking is that Capricorns have a tendency to set astronomically high expectations for themselves. Even steady, hard-working Cap can sometimes fail to measure up to their own expectations. Because they are trying to do better than they did in the past, a lofty goal indeed, they can sometimes be too hard on themselves. If you love a Capricorn, you might have to remind them that they’re human, not super-human. They’re perfectly imperfect and need to be reminded that it’s okay. This ever-practical sign may need the reminder that rest and recovery are essential to competing at their best level.
Relationships Are Sacred Contracts
It’s unsurprising that Capricorns also excel in relationships. After all, they see all the relationships in their lives as sacred contracts – and you can imagine just how seriously they take contracts! It’s not that they believe other people belong to them. Goats tend to be more service-oriented than that. They believe that people choose each other and that choice should come with honesty, respect, and loyalty.
If you make the inner circle of a Capricorn or have the honor of partnering one, there are some things you should know. First of all, congratulations! You’ve won the affections of a stubborn Goat. Laugh all you want, but you know it’s true. Goats are notoriously stubborn, and it can be one of their most endearing and frustrating qualities. On the one hand, Caps will stubbornly insist that they’re right and rarely ever admit to being wrong, but on the other, Caps will love you just as stubbornly. This star sign gives loyalty for life to those who earn their admiration and respect. They rarely take relationships for granted and will put just as much hard work into a friendship or romantic relationship as they do into climbing the proverbial ladder.
Capricorns know quite a bit, but these 10 things are near and dear to their hearts. Should you find yourself lucky enough to know one or unlucky enough to go up against one, you’ll know it’s true. While each astrological sign has amazing qualities to admire, no one quite reaches the heights of Goat. That’s mostly because this tenacious sign won’t stop climbing.
