The stable and slow motioned planet Saturn is the ruling planet of the Capricorn born. This influence is what makes them consistent and slightly sluggish in nature. It is represented by the mountain goat whose goal is to reach on top of the mountain someday and this is from where they pick their strong will power and magnificent determination. They fall under the realistic earth sign and they are earthy in nature, which means they choose facts over fantasy. This influence makes them extremely pragmatic in nature. Capricorns are known for their multi tasking and multiplying skills. You must have heard the great lines “give her a house and she will give you a home.” Well, that is our typical Capricorn. Just remember two things when dealing with them. Firstly, they are vindictive in nature so do not mess with them and secondly and most importantly no matter how hard you try, the Capricorns always win!
