December 22nd – January 20th Capricorn is the zodiac's tenth sign. The planet Saturn governs this cardinal feminine symbol. Capricorn is a water sign, key phrase "I master" and it's emblem is a goat with a fish tail, and its glyph is the "V," which is thought to represent the goat's beard; and the tail is that of a fish (Capricorn, in ancient times, was associated with the sea-goat). Capricornus, which means "goat horn" in Latin, is the name given to it.
The Capricorn Man
The Capricorn personality is described as optimistic, determined, and realistic. As long as he knows that victory awaits him at the mountain's top, he is content to tread along a brow-beaten course, scaling steep hills and weathering nasty storms. He needs to climb to the top so he can enjoy the benefits. Fame, prestige, and money are all advantages of success, but perseverance is the name of the game. His persistence and attention to detail serve him well as he works against his objectives.
The Capricorn man takes love as seriously as he does anything else in his life. He's neither a flirt nor a gamer. He believes in true love and will wait patiently for it, then work hard to hold it once he finds it. He has high expectations and will watch from afar before taking action. Either a determined step toward happily-ever-after or a determined move away to greener pastures will be made. The Capricorn man isn't one for playing games with his mind. Deep down under the thick hide, he's a hidden romantic.
The Capricorn Woman
A Capricorn woman is extremely strong, and she can calmly rise above any storm, disappointment, or tragedy. She is the zodiac's powerhouse. Her lofty goals and inner drive often leave others in the dust. But watch out for those precious horns, because she'll throw something out the way to make her date with destiny.
She takes matters of the heart into her own hands, but it may be a while before she makes her move, as she is still confident in her own abilities. She is observant and analytical, and she takes time to get to know her partner before allowing herself to fall fully in love after all the possibilities have been considered.
