Capricorn, the tenth sign of the Zodiac, is marked by patience, sure-footedness
and an ambition to reach the top no matter how long it takes! Like
their symbol, the Goat, they like to proceed at a steady pace and are stubbornly methodical in reaching their goals.
Inwardly quiet and shy, their feelings take second place to a well thought-out plan for success, and they make good managers or business leaders where the spotlight is not on them, but on their often hard-won results.
Usually impeccably though conservatively dressed, they prefer the finer things in life - as along as they are not flashy or draw too much attention.
Similar to other earth signs with which they are most compatible, the Capricorn personality is essentially quite serious and perhaps too materialistic for their own good as they focus all their workaholic energies on a single goal. Capricorns are usually good providers, however, and with loved ones and close friends are dependable, loyal and steadfast.
