When is a Capricorn Born?

Capricorns are born between December 22 and January 19. The cold and dark season aligns well with the outward image many perceive of a Capricorn; selfish, intolerant, and emotionally cold. However, this is more about Capricorns being highly analytical and realistic, and their conflict-avoidance to such an extent that they’d rather turn their backs on close relationships than engage in conflict.

The Capricorn Personality

Capricorns are often seen as cold and perhaps slightly arrogant – or at least indifferent. This hard exterior, however, stems from a multitude of internal thoughts that Capricorns try to control. So, when a Capricorn gives you the cold shoulder, it doesn’t mean they don’t care, even if it might seem that way.

Despite their outward appearance of being selfish and unempathetic, Capricorns are good and loyal friends, as long as their friends respect that Capricorns don’t readily share their deepest thoughts and feelings.

Capricorns are highly intelligent and prefer to interact with others of the same intellect. Conversations often reach a political or analytical level before a good dinner is over.

Capricorn in Work and Education

A Capricorn is a dedicated and focused employee, capable of taking most things to the next level. Their work areas are typically mathematical or analytical, and Capricorns excel in politics or think tanks. However, positions in finance and programming can also pique a Capricorn’s interest.

Capricorns are loyal employees who take pride in staying with the same organization, but they are also willing to slowly and steadily climb the career ladder.

Who is a Good Match for Capricorn?

In all things, Capricorns are loyal and focused on success, including in relationships and marriage. This success is best achieved with a Virgo or a Taurus.

Capricorn and Virgo: Virgo is disciplined and tidy, which fits well with Capricorn’s desires and needs. They are both highly intelligent and thus, typically very like-minded.

Capricorn and Taurus: Taurus can provide the peace and stability at home that Capricorn needs. In return, Capricorn can typically finance some of the material luxuries that both appreciate.

Capricorns have their lives in order, attracting many, regardless of their zodiac sign. Relationships can work well – even long-term – with others besides Virgo and Taurus, but having a partner with the same intellect and worldview is important.
