You're as steadfast as they come!

Are you defined by your determination and laser-like ability to focus? Then you're probably a Capricorn!

The Capricorn zodiac sign lands between December 22 - January 19. If you're not familiar with the tenth sign of the zodiac, then here are some things you must know about Capricorns.

What is the Capricorn zodiac sign like?

Those born under the Capricorn sign are true workaholics. But don't take this the wrong way! Capricorns LOVE putting in a full day's work. It makes them feel productive and gets them closer to their goals and dreams.

The Capricorn is an Earth sign. This is fitting, since Capricorns are down-to-earth, logical, and grounded. Although Capricorns definitely have dreams, their dreams may seem smaller than the those of other zodiac signs. Capricorns aren't big on adventure. They would rather stay put and get their work done.

A Capricorn can sometimes get materialistic, but it's only because they feel that they deserve to reward themselves for their hard work. In spite of this, a Capricorn will never let themselves get carried away. They're much too sensible for that.

  • Element: Earth

Capricorn Personality Traits:

Capricorns are the most determined sign of the whole zodiac. They possess all the necessary traits of a hard worker. They're ambitious, helpful, grounded, and committed. If you feel like you're getting tired just reading all that, then you might want to keep in mind that the Capricorn hasn't even gotten started yet!

A Capricorn is so focused on the task at hand that they often appear to be emotionally detached. But Capricorns are really quite soft and have many feelings — they just hide them behind their tough, steely outer surfaces.

Capricorns are highly conventional, both in their work and their personal lives. They like to play it safe. This is how they feel the most comfortable. Capricorns are as patient as they are responsible, two qualities that serve them well in their lives. They realize the importance of understanding that some things take a while and that the best things often come to those who wait.

What does the Capricorn symbol mean in astrology?

Capricorns may have the most interesting symbol of the zodiac. Although they're most commonly associated with the goat, the way that the actual symbol is drawn looks like the bottom half may be a fish. Capricorns are associated with the goat because they both want to get to the top of the mountain where the air is fresh and they can finally enjoy the benefits of their success.

Best Capricorn Compatibility:

Capricorns aren't the easiest sign to win over, but once someone is able to push past their resilient outer exterior the Capricorn will be committed to that person for life.

Since Capricorns are a grounded, patient Earth sign, they need someone who can complement these qualities. The Taurus is the greatest match in love for a Capricorn. With the Taurus being another Earth sign, they will share many similarities with the Capricorn and this is just what they need.

Both signs treasure their money and security, so financial issues will never be a problem for this pairing. This will make for one of the most stable relationships in all of the zodiac. Capricorns will cherish the dedication that a Taurus will put into their life at home and the Taurus will admire Capricorn's effort to make sure they will always stay secure.

All in all, this coupling makes for a happy, loving marriage. Enjoy your wedded bliss, Earth signs!

Best Career for Capricorn:

Capricorns always, always get the job done. Even if they have to put in very long hours to do so. They have high standards and will ensure that every task they complete is done with integrity, organization, and devotion. 

With their intense concentration and ability to solve problems super quickly, Capricorns will be successful in financial or management positions. They're excellent at managing money and know the importance of having some saved. 

Since Capricorns devote so much of their lives to their careers, it may seem like every other part of their lives gets pushed aside and becomes less important. However, they greatly value their loved ones and will make sure to set time on their calendars for them. And if it seems like a Capricorn's work is never done, they often find some way to make it up to their favorite people in the end.
