Character Traits of the
Astrological Sun Sign Capricorn

Capricorn is one of the "power-house" signs. If you were to throw out the old symbol, the sea-goat, you'd have to replace it with a CEO in a power suit. Famous Capricorns like Rush Limbaugh, Tiger Woods, Elvis, and David Bowie typify this Sun Sign. Dedicated, passionate, ambitious and practical, many of the world's corporate captains of industry have strong Capricorn energy somewhere in their charts. Capricorns are known for "workaholic" tendencies, excellent leadership skills and comfort in the public arena. This is not because they are overly interested in money necessarily, but because they seek the respect and power that comes from social status. Capricorn will often sacrifice much to maintain or improve their position in the social hierarchy. When there is support in the chart for it, Capricorn is a creative force that cannot be denied. It seeks for "the top" in everything it touches. Despite the practical, earthy, heavy nature of the sign, however, Capricorns do have their share of quirks. Capricorns are known for having some strange creative and sexual eccentricities that they like to keep secret. Additional Water and Air in the right place in their charts makes them devoted, passionate and creative lovers.

Capricorn the Goat

Capricorn the Goat Symbol Comparison
Goats are surefooted, agile animals. They are gregarious, except for old bucks, which tend to live by themselves. Goats are considered to be rather hardy animals. Capricorn is most often compared to the mountain goat. Capricorns are thought to be loners at heart, with introverted characters. Mountain goats find security in cliffs and heights—the highest places that can be climbed. Slowly but surely, a goat climbs the mountain. And, Capricorns are thought to move through life, achieving success slowly but surely. A large measure of strength of character is also associated with Capricorn.

The glyph for Capricorn is a little more intricate than most. The V is thought to depict the goat's beard; and the tail is that of a fish. Capricorn, in ancient times, was associated with the sea-goat.
