Capricorn 101

Learn the basics of the sign Capricorn


Capricorn is here to make things tangible and to achieve its goals, dreams and ambitions. Success is on the menu, along with the recognition that come along with it. Capricorn is represented by the goat, climbing to the top of the mountain no matter how long it takes or how treacherous the path—it knows that you just need to keep putting one foot in front of the other to get to where you want to go. Capricorn doesn't shy away from hard work or a challenge, and sees the obstacles as part of becoming a master in whatever it turns its sights on. The part of your chart that Capricorn rules is where you are working toward creating a legacy.
