Capricorn is an Earth sign

People of Earth signs tend to be practical, loyal, responsible, down to earth and cautious. They tend to prefer to plan things down to the last detail and to avoid unnecessary risks (they don't get a thrill from risk taking like some other signs do). They typically prefer long term relationships over one night stands, and are often more concerned with practicalities than being swept off their feet, and tend to value stability and loyalty from a partner.

The earth signs: Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn
The air signs: Gemini, Libra, Aquarius
The water signs: Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces

Capricorn is a Negative sign

People of negative signs tend to be introvert, responsible, practical, serious and more likely to be pessimistic (when compared to people of positive signs). They typically relate better to people of other negative signs (though their soulmates are typically of positive signs).

The positive signs: Aries, Gemini, Leo, Libra, Sagittarius, Aquarius
The negative signs: Taurus, Cancer, Virgo, Scorpio, Capricorn, Pisces

Capricorn is a Cardinal sign

People of cardinal signs tend to be initiators and leaders, and are typically forceful and dynamic. On the negative side they can be seen as demanding, inconsiderate or controlling. Two cardinal signs together can have control issues.

The cardinal signs: Aries, Cancer, Libra, Capricorn
The fixed signs: Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, Aquarius

Capricorn is ruled by Saturn

Appropriately, Saturn (the ringed planet) represents boundaries and limitations. It represents the belief that we reap what we sow, and that structure, stability, responsibility, tradition, discipline, authority and similar concepts serve our best interests and ensure that everyone gets what they deserve.

Capricorn is associated with the 10th house

The 10th house represents how the world see us. Our results, status and achievements. What we pursue and what we are recognized for. Our lifes work. Conceptually the 10th house represents ambition, persistence, expertise, authority, monuments, legacies.

Are you really a Capricorn?

If you were born on the first or last day of Capricorn then it's worth noting that the signs do not neatly correspond to calendar days. You may wish to check out the articles on the Sagittarius Capricorn cusp or Capricorn Aquarius cusp.
