The Capricorn is the tenth sign in the zodiac. To be a Capricorn, you need to be born between December 23rd and January 20th. Capricorns can be stubborn and isolated in nature, which may be why their symbol is a goat. Val Kilmer, Jon Voight, and Anthony Hopkins are all Capricorns.
The perseverance and patience of a Capricorn is unrivaled by any of the other signs of the zodiac. They tend to be goal-oriented and persistent in nature. They are usually dedicated and ambitious people who will succeed no matter how difficult the challenge may be.
They are picky people and consider their options carefully before making a decision. They tend to be highly organized and rely on a fixed structure in their lives, which makes them perfect for management positions at work. They are conservative in all aspects of their lives, and give careful thought to the paths they choose.
They also tend to be very serious about their work and others’ perception of them. They may want power, but are never in the visible spotlight. Their confidence is usually high, but they are also resistant to any kind of change. As a general rule, Capricorns tend to avoid the unfamiliar, so surprising them can be a very bad idea. The perfect gift for a Capricorn is a day-planner or PDA, because it will utilize his or her organizational skills.
Capricorns are very loyal people, and are often shy on the inside. They are very dependable and their loyalty is what makes them good partners. However, their nature may prevent them from becoming truly intimate with another person, which could create problems when it comes to romance and sex. Just remember that Capricorns are not actually frigid, they just find it more difficult to express themselves.
Due to their tough and focused nature, relationships can be challenging to them. A Capricorn may take a long to time to finally warm up to someone. They are loners who need to be eased into a relationship by a patient lover. Even though they may make very good friends, getting close to them will take some extra time and energy. Only a dedicated partner can help bring a Capricorn out of his or her shell.
Capricorns also have a tendency to dominate in relationships. But once they are into the relationship, they usually prove to be very loyal partners and also romantic and passionate. Early marriage is not Capricorns, as they take a long time to make a commitment. However, they take promises very seriously, so once they do make one they are unlikely to break it.
