Born: December 22 to January 21
Ruling Planet: Saturn
As the Cardinal Earth Sign that is ruled by Saturn, you have a serious side, that is also very driven by your instinctive responsibility. To others this can read as cold and boring sometimes, but really, you just know what needs to get done and you make sure that it is. Being a Cardinal Sign means you are a born leader, and taking charge of any situation is your superpower. You may not trust others to do things the way that you want them done, or that you would do them. And this is why you are often burning the midnight oil at work or at home to make sure you do it, and do it right. It’s not that you aren’t fun. But with Saturn in your corner, responsibility is your middle name, and you’d rather work first, and play later. And this usually leads to a very successful life for you.
Capricorn in love & relationships
As the Cardinal Earth Sign, your best qualities in love are that you are great at starting relationships, and sticking to them for the long haul. You are very real and grounded in your relationships, and take things and your lovers at face value. Because you are so real and grounded however, you aren’t often described as the emotional party in relationships. You can even come off as a little cold at times. It’s not that you are unfeeling, but being ruled by Saturn and a Cardinal Earth Sign, responsibilities are your priority in life over lovey dovey conversations. When you love someone, you are absolutely committed and you seek partners that are marriage minded. But you don’t get too caught up in woo or romance, you would rather spend the time and energy making sure your relationships are well taken care of financially. You also provide security to your partners in all forms, but could stand to have a few more emotional heart to hearts on occasion.
Capricorn and careers
The same tenacity that can make you appear cold and uncaring to others is also an asset when it comes to your working life. You don’t take work personally. For you, it’s just business. You were born to do, to achieve, and to be the best you can be. You can manage your time well, and you’re capable of organizing others and leading. You can see what you want, and then with practicality, create a vision of how to attain it. You’re very good at looking at long-term goals, and then working backwards to the here and now so that you have a plan of how to reach your success. Cardinal Caps are often the CEO’s of the world. You lead, you initiate projects, and you are very skilled at managing teams. In the business world, on Wall Street, or running your own company are all things you would do well at. If your family has any complaints about your job, it’s that they don’t see enough of you because of it. Learn the skill of delegating and take a vacation with them once in a while, that’s what all that money you are working for is for anyway.
Capricorn and responsibility….
Being ruled by Saturn means responsibility is your middle name. That is your focus in life, and it can come off as cold and stoic at times. When you are met with responsibilities, you meet them almost better than anyone. The people that love you can count on you through anything because of this drive to be responsible. You’re there for people to lean on, offering sympathy and understanding. You can always come up with a plan to get someone back up and running again, and you expect little in return. Some see this as being cold and materialistic. It’s really just a good dose of earthy practicality. Your strong sense of discipline drives you, and you aren’t known to take risks because of that. You would never risk your family’s fortune for a few short lived laughs, and you take charge of what needs to get done because you know your family’s success depends on it. And you usually win as a result, even if you aren’t the most emotional crayon in the box.
