Have you heard the story of the Incey wincey spider? The one who gets washed out in the rain but never ceases to climb again? Well! You can totally relate this spider with the Capricorns. They are quite like the spider in the story never deviating from their ultimate goal. They never give up and they are a total work addicts. Just like the spider's nature silently weaving the web, the Capricorns too work silently and relentlessly. They aren't loud and attention seeking but they are disciplined and orderly. They don't like to grab attention, they aren't dominating and they have no intentions of over shadowing anyone. They are ok with anyone leading them, they are ok to take a backseat and be a mere spectator. But do remember to catch that smirk on their innocent face which says “I'm watching you!” Just like the spider weaves the web and even the largest insect is trapped in it our goat silently observes and finds a way to outwit even the most powerful among the crowd.
The Capricorn symbolised by the goat is very ambitious and strong willed in nature. They are determined and hardworking. Governed by Saturn, they believe in facts over fantasy. They are realistic and pragmatic in nature so winning a lottery ticket or finding a secret benefactor or the magic wand of the fairy godmother is not their cup of tea. They believe that hard work is the only key to success. People often hate the Capricorns because they always win and it is always take people by surprise when they win. Just like the tortoise and the rabbit race, the Capricorns never deter from their ultimate goal and their persistency is highly commendable which is why they eventually win the race.
Capricorns are very materialistic in nature. They are of the believe that People measure status not with good looks, qualifications or good heart but only with how many houses and car you own. They aren't attention seekers but they seek status and respect in the society. This is one of the primary reasons why you mostly see them hanging out with influential people and you'll rarely find a Capricorn born doing a community service.
Although they look very gentle, delicate and sober, the typical goat is very strong from within and most of them can get really cold sometimes. Their mood swings are terrible and they can attack you with those strong horns anytime. The goat is very patient, firmly rooted to the ground and they are very pessimistic by nature. The fact that the Capricorns are practical, they believe that if someone can turn from rags to riches, there is every possibility for anyone to turn from riches to rags. This is the main reason why the goats work really hard and tries to save a lot because they firmly believe in making hay while the sun shines and security is what matters to them a lot.
As much as the strong willed Capricorns are often mocked at being materialistic, selfish, unemotional, prude and moody deep down these goats have a soft nature and they too can love unconditionally. However, if you rub them on the wrong side be prepared for a war for they hold grudges till their grave and they are vindictive in nature.
