Key Characteristics

Those with Capricorn Dominant are the pragmatic realists and master planners.

The Capricorn motive is based on the need for security and achieving their goals, often through hard work and discipline. They value tradition and often take on a serious, responsible persona.

They are often conservative, believing in tried and tested methods of doing things. They are patient and disciplined, often making them the rock others lean on during difficult times.

Capricorn dislikes impracticality, flights of fancy, public displays of emotion, and disobedience.

They recognize and accept barriers and limitations that might phase others because they measure their worth by visible proof rather than by potentialities. Because they believe experience is the best teacher, they are apt to shoulder any responsibility and work long, hard hours to prove it.  Their ambition builds every temporary failure into one of the rungs on their ladder to success.

Capricorn enjoys being given responsibility, achieving goals, tradition, a good meal, quality craftsmanship, and slow and steady progress towards a goal.

When their Capricorn energy is not properly managed, they may become pessimistic or overly reserved and detached. However, when harnessed effectively, their determination and strong will power can lead them to accomplish great things.


In relationships, they are very loyal and seek long-term commitments. They might take their time to open up and trust, but once they do, they are steadfast in their devotion. They value a partner who appreciates their sense of responsibility and ambition.


In their career, Capricorn dominants are often excellent managers, organizers, and administrators. They excel in professions that require strategic planning, persistence, and careful attention to detail.


Capricorn is associated with the knees, bones, and skin. Its representatives are characterized by their endurance and ability to weather any storm.

Potential Challenges
