Capricorn seems to be a highly misunderstood sign! Not only are they grounded goats, but they also have the tail of a fish, giving them remarkable intuitive insight. With the practicality of Earth and the emotional intelligence of Water, this Sea Goat is incredibly aware of its environment!
Sun in Capricorn
Birthday: December 22nd- January 19th
Capricorn Sun signs are commonly associated with traits such as pessimism, dedication to climbing social ladders, and hard work. Being one of the most misunderstood signs, Capricorn is much more multifaceted than many believe. In fact, they are quite funny people; generally with a dark sense of humor and they speak fluent sarcasm. This is exemplified by Capricorn figures like Betty White and Jim Carrey, who are hilarious and clever! Sea Goats enjoy things like dry puns and whatever is delightfully corny. Perhaps we should call them Capricorn-y!
Despite their determination to achieve their goals, Capricorns are not usually as serious as commonly perceived. Therefore, they often display quite dark humor to combat their keen awareness of the stark realities of their world. In addition to their complex nature, they possess a deeply emotional side, which isn’t as obvious, and can be somewhat intense. Unlike the water signs, however, they may struggle to be emotionally vulnerable. For that reason, they may come off as cold and emotionally detached. Truthfully, they’re highly reflective and extraordinarily internally driven people.
Capricorns naturally operate in extremes and do not often recognize shades of gray in life. They demonstrate extreme focus, loyalty, and dedication to all they commit to. However, their emotional attachments can be stripped away when they feel slighted. Once that happens, Capricorns may “ghost” others without much explanation. This is their way of moving on from deep emotional pain, rather than acting in ways that could be ill-intended. No matter what, they always keep moving, showing unmatched self-respect, with their eye on the prize in mind.

Two words for Cap Moon: Capable and Respectful! Your sense of self-respect and self-love seems to be defined by how successful you are. Your standards are quite high for yourself, but you can do anything as long as you keep trying! Being a cardinal sign, Capricorn likes to manage. You’re quite independent, reserved, ambitious, and sometimes a bit bossy.
Perhaps you feel blocked in some way emotionally. While you’re able to fully feel your emotions, you are unsure how to put them into words. With a lack of self-trust, you may find yourself deciding it’s best not to. Although you work hard and are responsible, you may easily blow off your responsibilities when you’re emotional.
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. 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 didn’t listen to the intuitive voice inside of you. Unfortunately, no matter how driven you are to achieve your dreams, your choices will eventually catch up with you.
This placement is most definitely a smart*ss! Feeling vulnerable may be quite an uncomfortable place for you, but you can easily direct this with laughter. You’re likely frequently unsure of yourself, but quite confident at the same time. 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.

If you’re Capricorn Rising, your chart is ruled by the only planet with rings, Saturn! Symbolizing the planet of responsibility, you may have had a few hard knocks in life that taught you some difficult lessons. These could have led you seemingly off your path, but you always come out stronger. Saturn, also being the planet of restriction, can put a delay on death and keep you quite healthy up into a very old age, which is a blessing and a curse.
Capricorn rising, you often do things rather instinctively. Your choices are led by simply following the direction of your own two feet. You have a certain presence about you that could either inspire others or make them envious of your hard exterior. Because you are clearly a tough individual, many people have likely mistaken you as cold and uncaring at times.
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 gaze. Even during the moments in which you space out, you still impress upon others that you’re a boss. People take you seriously.
