The zodiac sign of Capricorn is represented by the
symbol of 'The Goat', more precisely a Sea-Goat. Capricorns are not the
ones who seek limelight; rather they make up the audience that admires.
They are like the tortoise, which moves slowly and still wins the race.
A Capricorn finds it extremely easy to merge into a group and will look
like one of its original members. He always seems to be surrounded by an
air of melancholy and seriousness. He has a soothing voice, pleasant
appearance and a convincing personality.
A Capricorn not only looks harmless, rather he is quite incapable of
any serious damage. He takes abuses, strains, failures as well as
responsibilities quite calmly, without even batting an eyelid. He knows
where he has to go and will persistently move towards his goal. He holds
great respect for the people who have excelled in their life, respects
authority and honors conventions. One of the most admirable traits of
Capricorns is their ability to submit and adapt. They let people go
ahead and then find a way to reach the finish line before them.
A Capricorn's characteristics profile exhibits his quality of keeping
the eyes fixed on the aim. A Capricorn does not daydream. He is above
envy, obsession, recklessness, rage, abuse, idleness and negligence. As
far as he is concerned, all these things are obstacles in the way of
success. He is very romantic, but emotions do not make him oblivious of
the practicalities of life. Unrestrained passions and emotions make him
uncomfortable. At times, a Capricorn may put his foot down and refuse to
work till he is given the complete power.
However, such a situation is pretty rare and the spell won't last long.
After some hard jolts, he will back on his track. Capricorns are quite
contended with their lives and show respect for age and experience. They
mind their own business and would not give advice, unless asked for. In
case you do ask for their advice, be ready to get it with some harsh
suggestions. He will also expect you to follow it. A Capricorn has to be
prepared for everything, be it a business venture or an emotional
commitment. He never waits for the opportunity to knock twice on the
door. He is always waiting for it eagerly.
A Capricorn will come across as an extremely sweet person, who is shy,
harmless, trustworthy and perhaps, a little obstinate. You confide
everything in him and trust him blindly. In the end, he becomes
indispensable and you start depending on him. But then, who's
complaining? It's always comforting to have his strong shoulders to lean
upon. A Capricorn loves taking responsibilities and will carry them out
meticulously. With him, you will never have to worry about anything,
just remember to let him handle the reins.
