Capricorns are the tenth sign of the zodiac, and are symbolized by the goat with the fish tail. Ruled by Saturn, Capricorns appreciate stability and routine and are excellent at strategizing and planning. Their organizational skills and responsible nature assist them in completing projects on time as well as going above and beyond what is required of them.

Cary Grant, David Bowie, Sissy Spacek and Kate Moss are examples of extremely successful Capricorn individuals. While there are many great qualities that aid in a Capricorn’s success, there are also tendencies to avoid.

Here are the 5 best Capricorn characteristics to depend on:

  1. You are motivated.
  2. You are disciplined.
  3. You are patient.
  4. You are forceful.
  5. You are realistic.

As an earth sign, Capricorns are highly motivated, hard-working and quite dependable. Ambitious and unafraid of tough labor, you will keep their eye on the prize to achieve their long-term goals. Your tenacity will prove useful in any field of work.

Capricorns, being ruled by the father-like planet Saturn, have intense willpower. You are extremely self-disciplined and can restrain yourself from nearly anything if you put your mind to it. All extracurricular activities will be put on hold if they get in the way of responsibility or achievement.

Capricorns are patient and tolerant. You are willing to wait as long as it takes for your goals to be realized, including in love. You understand that good things are worth waiting for.

Capricorn is a force to be reckoned with! Strong and courageous, you stand up for yourself and those around you. We can count on Capricorn to do the right thing, keep their promises and fight for their beliefs.

Unlike other, more idealistic astrological signs, you are a pragmatist. Practical in your endeavors, you dream big, but in a realistic manner. Your spirit is unlikely to be crushed due to unforeseen changes in plans, as you have likely mentally prepared for such an event.

Here are the 5 traits or tendencies a Capricorn could improve upon:

  1. You can lack creativity.
  2. You can be materialistic.
  3. You can be stubborn.
  4. You can be too serious.
  5. You can be inhibited.

You are so pleased by routine and stability that you can sometimes seem to lack creativity. What appeals to Capricorn about habitual activity may aggravate the more spontaneous astrological signs. Try using your imagination more often and breaking out of your routine every once in a while.

There can exist within Capricorn the propensity for materialism. While being financially stable is a wonderful goal, remember that material goods are not all that success encompasses. Success can also be found in friends, family and positive experiences.

Like their fellow earth signs, Taurus and Virgo, you can be extremely stubborn. While you may often feel you know best, try to hear others’ points of view without criticism.

A head for business is a great thing to have, however you run the risk of being too serious at times. While it is important to be serious about your work, remember to take time out for fun and relaxation. Unwinding can allow you to regenerate, leaving you refreshed and ready to conquer the world.

You tend to be reserved around people you aren’t familiar with, which can make you come across as a bit of a loner. Don’t worry about what others think of you and let loose every once in a while.

Capricorns are headstrong and capable of anything they put their mind to. You are already known as one of the most successful and hard-working signs in the whole zodiac! With a dose of self-awareness and a splash of imagination, the determined Capricorn can end up exactly where they planned to be.
