| Capricorn is an earth sign and as such concerned with the things of the
earth. The Goat is Capricorns symbol. The Goat is sure footed and able
to walk up steep hills and rocky roads. Likewise Capricorn is usually
looking to climb the corporate ladder and above all, prove himself. Saturn
can be a harsh taskmaster and many Capricorns have truly difficult
childhood situations to overcome. They learn early on that the world can
be a difficult place and they have to depend on themselves if they want to
make their life better. So they usually start to plan early. Capricorns love
a good plan. Many parents are surprised at how adult Capricorns are.
They will demand good grades from themselves as well as keeping their
room clean and doing chores. Many times this is imposed from without
and they are brought up in a household that is more about rules and
responsibility than fun and games. But even if their household is more
relaxed Capricorns still push themselves toward success. They are looking
for tangible rewards in the work they do. The sign of the Goat wants the
corner office as well as a title on the door and they do not shrink the work load that goes along with it. They will not ask more from their employees than they ask of themselves but they are the hardest working sign around
so that's not always a comfort. Because they are so focused on whatever
goal they have set for themselves they can seem cold or aloof at times. It's not that they don't have a sense of humor, but they don't play around at the
water cooler. Work is about work. Surprisingly most Capricorns come from a household where the mother assumed a dominate role. The mother
mother is a powerhouse and they too want to be in charge of something.
Many people identify themselves with their profession but none more so
than Capricorn.To lose a job or be downsized is one of the most awful
things that can happen to this sign. They excel at being in charge. And
most people benefit greatly from their capacity to do so.
