About Capricorn

Sanskrit/Vedic name:


Capricorn Meaning:

The Goat



Capricorn Sign Capricorn, the upward climbing, always forward moving Mountain Goat, represents the 10th Sign of the Zodiac. Committed to responsibilities, Capricorn is a sign that represents the work side of life. They are very focused on achieving the most amount of work in the least amount of time with the highest degree of quality. They are often calm and appear slightly cold, meticulous, and dogged in their persistence for quality and productivity.

They are incredibly focused on detail and quality and are persistent and dogged in their pursuit of goals. Because Capricorn is a fixed sign, they don't do a lot of casual or socializing, and they can come across as a bit cold and distant. However, once they get to know someone, they open up and can be very loyal and devoted friends. They are reliable and methodical in their approach and seek to achieve results rather than simply busywork. They are hard workers and are very good at making time for both the most important things and what needs to be done. They are good planners and often great at managing their time and calendars.

It is often the case, and it is admirable, particularly if part of a designed strategy and system. However, the downside is that some people born under the sign of Capricorn can come across as cold and aloof, mainly when they are at work. They are often so focused on quality, and productivity that they forget to include the human touch and connection in their day-to-day work.

Capricorns are creatures of habit, and they never stop working until they've completed every last task on their to-do list. Because of this workaholic streak, they can be a bit cold and distant to others. However, once they get to know someone, they are incredibly loyal and will defend their friends and family with their lives.
