If you want to learn further about the untamable goats of the zodiac, we’ve got a lot below. On this page, we’ve gathered the personality and physical traits of Capricorn, and we’ve added some tips on how to handle them.
Capricorn Traits – Personality
Always playing it safe
Whether it’s about their careers, daily lives, or relationships, Capricorns want to feel safe, and they work to build their perfectly-designed safe space. The number one reason behind this wariness is the pessimism.
Like Virgos and Taureans, Capricorns also plan their daily lives and stick to their precious routines. They want their lives on track and they work hard for it, which eventually turns them into natural workaholics.
Although Capricorns are workaholics in many ways, they don’t aim for the top unlike the Leos. They just want to make sure that their lives won’t get off the track in the foreseeable future. This quality makes Capricorns perfect candidates for monotonous professions like teaching, coding, and science since they like their routines and they are more mindful than others.
The grudge is real
If you know a thing or two about astrology, you must’ve heard the most popular trait of Capricorn: Stubbornness. Well, thanks to their unyielding personality, they are big grudge holders. A Capricorn is a quite easygoing person in the general run of things, but when you push the wrong buttons, the angry goat comes out. And believe us, it’s not nice.
Once a Capricorn writes someone on their burn book, there’s no turning back. In some cases, they may even start plotting an act of perfectly-designed revenge. So if there’s a Capricorn in your circle of friends, you’d better show loyalty and honesty unless you can handle the horns of the mad goat.
The marrying type
Capricorns in relationships as well as friendships are great people, but you need to give them enough time to open up first. They are loyal, they are dependable, and they always consider others’ feelings. When a Capricorn decides to go all the way with their loved ones, their feelings gets only deepened. Their expectations from a relationship is a lifelong commitment. Therefore, if you’re a non-committal type, just stay away from the Capricorns. Otherwise, stay 100% loyal. When you see the level of jealousy Capricorns can get, you’ll get what we mean.
Neater than a Virgo
Although Virgos are considered as the neat freaks of the zodiac, Capricorns love order more than anyone in the world. We’ve mentioned that Capricorns like to feel safe and their environment is a key element for their safe zone. But unlike Virgos, Capricorns don’t freak out when you spill some coffee on the carpet; they wait for everyone to get out of sight before bringing the cleaning agents out. It is not very hard to be a hate figure in a Capricorn’s life, so our suggestion, be extra careful not to ruin a Capricorn’s habitat.
Glass Half Empty
The final and the most obvious Capricorn trait is, as might be expected, pessimism. No news is a good news for a Capricorn. The doubt is constantly present, and there is always something bad waiting around the corner— or at least they believe so. The source of all Capricorn qualities may be the negative point of view that is engraved into their souls. Don’t even try to change it, instead just try and go with their flow. Who knows, you may actually learn how to make it through tough times.
Physical Characteristics of Capricorn
What makes zodiac signs differ from one another is not only the personality traits. In some cases, you can tell a person’s zodiac sign by looking at their faces. If you’re a true believer in astrology, you must know that already. It’s an intuition that evolves with you as you grow. Enough said about the eminent personalities of this fire sign. Let’s take a look now at the main physical qualities of Aries.
The main physical trait of Aries is their prominent hair and eyes. Just like their personalities, Aries tends to stand out in crowds with their distinctive eyes or hair. People of Aries usually have pitch black, blond, or even red hair that makes them shine out. Similarly, the eyes of Aries make a good contrast with their faces which distinguish them from the others. Medium height, athletic build, and broad shoulders thanks to their energetic personality are also the main physical characteristics of Aries.
The signs that match with Aries best are Leo, Sagittarius, Gemini, and Aquarius. Although Aries is compatible with other zodiac signs in certain areas, these four we’ve mentioned make the perfect couple with Aries. If you’re one of the four above and seeking ways to a relationship with an Aries man or an Aries woman, always remember to be true to yourself and your future Aries partner.
Just like the Capricorn men, Capricorn women, too, tend to have a bumpy ride when they catch feelings for somebody, but here things are more poised. When a Capricorn woman starts falling in love, she brings out the pros and cons sheet, overanalyzes the person, and after a couple of weeks, she assuredly makes up her mind. Capricorn women in relationships are as stubborn as expected, but as opposed to the the Aries women, they don’t need to have all the power in the relationship. The most crucial thing for a Capricorn woman is loyalty; if she feels that you’re dependable, it’s almost impossible for the relationship to fall apart.
Although the Capricorn men value emotions, it’s really difficult to break their shells in the beginning. The hardest part of a relationship with a Capricorn man is the beginning. When a Capricorn man starts having feelings, they start acting in a weird way, and it’s all because of their need for safety. We know that it might be hard work, but what lies beneath the weirdo is a perfect man that values you more than anyone.
