If you’re a Capricorn, (like me), you probably know that the seagoat is known for being pessimistic, serious-minded, and hard-working, but that sounds like no fun at all! Capricorn sun people, as you can see from the list below, (BETTY WHITE and Jim Carrey), are actually funny, clever people! Before you can say, “excuse me,” as you sneeze, sitting on your couch at home, they’ll have quickly replied, “Why? Are you lost?” Or “There’s no excuse for you.” Or “You’re excused… this time. Next time, it’ll be off with your head!”
Yes: A capricorn’s first language is biting sarcasm. And Yes, that’s where the “corn” in Capricorn comes from– because we’re so corny.
We just can’t help ourselves. It’s an impulse! We apologize for being a smart*ss to you, but it’s better than being a dumb*ss.
Although they will indeed climb mountains to meet their goals, they’re not as serious as people seem to think. They love being lazy and doing nothing at all when the timing is right! With fins, they’ll also swim oceans for those they love. Half grounded goat and half water creature, Capricorn is both grounded as well as emotionally deep, and even a bit dark and intense at times. The difference between Capricorn and the water signs Pisces, Cancer, and Scorpio, is that they express their emotions less. This can make them appear cruel and numb at times. More inwardly focused, this is where the pessimistic and cold ideas come from about us Capricornus folks.
More accurately, in my opinion, is that they naturally deal in dualism and know no gray area to life; They’re unconsciously all or nothing, meaning they feel all the emotions inside of them and hold it close to their hearts, with extreme focus, loyalty, and dedication. However, if this is stripped away or they feel slighted, where they were otherwise kind from the beginning, they’ll “ghost” you or cut you off without much of a word.
Sometimes, it seems to be the only way they can move on from what actually hurts them very deeply. It’s not necessarily ill-inteded if they walk away. Sea goats just aren’t designed to talk about their emotional upsets. They’re willing, but confused on how to go about it the right way, often causing both parties frustration and anxiety- or at least that’s how we feel.
We really don’t want you to think we’re the devil!

Two words for Cap Moon: Capable & Respectful!
Your sense of self-respect and self-love seem to be defined by how successful you are and your standards are quite high for yourself, but you can do anything as long as you keep trying!
You’re quite independent, reserved (not shy), ambitious, and sometimes even a bit bossy. Being a cardinal sign, Capricorn likes to manage. The moon being your emotions = managing emotions.
Perhaps you don’t enjoy being vulnerable or you feel blocked in some way emotionally. Able to fully feel your emotions, you are often unsure how to put them into words or wonder if you even want to anyway.
Because you’re unsure of yourself emotionally, but quite confident in most other areas, you are pretty hot and cold and possibly even confusing to others. One day you’re ready to commit to a relationship and the next you don’t even call. Either way, it’s important to be a bit more cautious of how and what you give and take with others and decide if it’s for the right reasons. Feeling vulnerable may be quite an uncomfortable place for you, but it’s very brief and you’ll be glad you opened up. Unfortunately, no matter how driven you are to achieve your dreams, your choices and your feelings will eventually catch up with you.
Capricorn is Cancer’s opposite, which is the moon’s ruling sign. This may mean that you’re full of funny, little paradoxes that make you more human. For example, you may enjoy antique furniture, but you reupholster them with modern designs. While you’re quite a domineering go-getter, you’re also passive when it comes to an argument. You’d just rather avoid it. You’re also very intuitive and your biggest mistakes have always been when you just didn’t listen to the correct voice inside of you. You’ll get younger, yet wiser with age, however!

If you’re Capricorn rising aka ascendant, you are ruled by our only planet with rings, Saturn!
If you aren’t familiar, Saturn is symbolically known for its limitations, restrictions, discipline, responsibility, hard work, and being a father figure.
You may have had a few hard knocks in life that taught you some difficult lessons that led you seemingly off your path, but you grow wiser as you ask some rather philosophical questions in your needed alone time.
On top of the planet, you can see the symbol of Capricorn, which looks a bit like an n with a hook.
With Saturn ruling you, you’ll most likely live a long life! Saturn, being the planet of restriction, can even put a hold on death and keep you quite healthy up into oddly old ages. This is definitely a blessing and a curse. You live a long life, which is great, but you also get to be the one to watch everyone else pass on before you. Tough and brave, many people have even mistaken you as cold and uncaring at times. Those who you keep close know that it is only a lack of emotional vulnerability and expression that makes some folks wonder who type of character you possess.
Capricorn rising, you often do things rather instinctively. You may want to go one way and head that way all the way up until the moment it’s time to choose a path. At that moment, something tells you to choose the other one and you just do it. Now, you’re walking somewhere in which you were not prepared and wondering what the heck even happened?! Saturn happened.
Saturn will again and against break an individual down so that they can rise from the ashes stronger than before, every single time they falter. Deep inside you, a voice knows exactly what is needed of your soul. Even when life is uncomfortable, never stop following that voice!
Rising Capricorn people are often thin, with small but sharp features. You have darker, finer hair than your family members and thick, shapely lips. Queen of the resting b*tch face, Capricorn rising has an intense and piercing face, even at rest, but we know you’re a boss!
