December 22 – January 19
Capricorn is the tenth zodiac sign and is connected with winter in the northern hemisphere. This earth sign, the mountain goat of the zodiac, is one that can survive harsh conditions, which is why Capricorns are known to be resourceful and hardworking. This is a sign known for grit and tenacity.
Capricorn is ruled by Saturn, who the Romans connected with the Greek god Kronos. Kronos (Saturn), was the Titan who overthrew his father, Uranus, to then rule over a golden age of peace and plenty before being overthrown by his son, Jupiter. You’ll find with this sign, there’s a theme of time, responsibility, generational shifts, and building upon the past. And, in fact, Capricorns are in their element when they are working toward some end, whether it’s building skills, wealth, an organization, or actual physical structures.
What are the signs of a Capricorn?
Capricorn can be a serious sign, and especially as an adult, they can have a conservative streak. This is because it’s in the mountain goat’s nature to achieve a goal through dedication and hard work – to climb the mountain so to speak. Having this type of experience, Capricorns tend to be realists. They prefer the practical over the superfluous, the known over the unknown. This is why Capricorns tend to make great scientists. With the pragmatist nature and their enterprising cardinal energy, they’re also effective business leaders.
What signs do Capricorns attract?
Dedicated and often stable, Capricorns can attract other earth signs – Taurus and Virgo. They also can be appealing to Cancer, who are drawn to the security of Capricorn’s committed nature.
What sign should date a Capricorn and what sign will marry a Capricorn?
Most signs can date a Capricorn as this sign of the zodiac can offer the type of consistency and grounded nature that most people can appreciate. Taurus, Virgo, Scorpio, Pisces and Cancer will probably enjoy the down-to-earth personality of Capricorn the most.
Cancer can be a great marriage prospect for practical Capricorn. At the opposite end of the zodiac, these two cardinal signs balance each other. Cancer symbolizes mother, Capricorn, father. Cancer is linked to family and home, where Capricorn is work and society.
What signs do Capricorns not get along with?
Capricorn can clash with the freedom-loving, independent signs, especially Aries and Sagittarius. While Capricorn and Aquarius can make decent friends, there’s also the potential for friction between these two – Capricorn craves order and the golden age of the past, where Aquarius wants to bring in a new order and a golden age of the future.
