As an Earth sign, you're grounded and disciplined. Long term goals? No problem, you'll make a plan to steer past anything in your way to achieve them. You're laser focussed, which has so many benefits, but just be careful that you don't come off too cold to other people.
Perhaps lacking in that lust for spontaneity, but the benefits to being pragmatic and forward-looking are multifold, and if people can't see that, you're inclined to write them off. You're looking for life companions who have the future in mind, rather than just a hedonism in the present.
The mega-mogul of the zodiac, Capricorns play to win. You’re a master of time, and as you age, life gets easier, sweeter and lighter. You are the sign with the most integrity and live by an inner command to hold strictly to your word in every area of life. You don’t believe in taking shortcuts, sacrificing quality or wasting a hot second.
Some may accuse you of being overly pragmatic but you understand the value of cutting out the inessentials. You think in terms of the long-term and have a hard time with people who insist on going for the quick fix. Self-sufficiency is one of your many noble traits.
It’s rare to find a Capricorn who isn’t self-made. Relying on others proves disappointing unless you can find that rare breed that shares your impeccable standards. You were born to be a CEO who worked her way up the ranks – or you scrimped and saved and started the whole company from scratch.
You’re only interested in investing your time and energy in people, places and things that are built to last. This foundation is everything as you’re not one to be swayed by a cut-rate but glitzy façade. You’ll wait as long as it takes to score that which has the highest quality. You prefer to surround yourself with people of excellent moral character who share similar values and self-possession – and you don’t mind spending time on private helicopters or in corner offices, either.
Capricorn Compatibility - Love and Sex
When it comes to love you employ the same high standards and requirements that you expect from everyone and everything in your life. Settling is not an option; you’re willing to wait for the right person.
You look for someone who honours tradition and good old-fashioned values. You are drawn to people with staying power and an awesome work ethic. Ne’er do-well types need not apply.
You swipe through dating apps just like you apply for jobs: with a very specific goal in mind. You won’t waste your time hanging out with someone with a shabby reputation, and you’re not one to play saviour or reformer for that matter.
You’re looking for a partner who will weather the storms of life and build something lasting with you. But if the time and the situation is right and you’re single, you’re totally there for quickies and (safe) casual sex, and are not opposed to interim friends-with-benefits situations when you’re between relationships. There may be a waiting list for people to make this arrangement with you, however.
Capricorn Beauty and Style
Like everything else, when it comes to style you adore the classic and the timeless. Inexpensive-looking accessories make your skin crawl, but perfect fakes are sometimes fine.
Yet you’d rather spend more on a timeless designer piece that you know is built to last than waste your money on a bunch of trendy but flimsy items. Nix the fast fashion, Capricorn. You prefer an understated look that still screams, “I own a yacht”. Less is more and quality over quantity are your style mottos.
When it comes to beauty, that same classic and timeless vibe applies, but like everything else, you’re willing to take the time to put on your most perfect, flawless face and you get better at it over time. You magically look younger as you grow older, and people will think you’ve gotten work done or bought high-priced wrinkle creams when all you did was have another birthday and relax a little bit.
