Nature: People born under the sign of Capricorn love order and exact schedules. They emit little warm-heartedness and often they give the impression of aloofness and inapproachability. This may be caused by their effort to remain strong. Being appreciated by the others is what they wish the most and they usually consider it more important than closeness and privacy of a friendly connection. They make a lot of effort in order to reach as high social status as possible while using the diplomas and brands to disguise their deeply rooted inferiority complex. If the society appreciates them, their self-confidence grows quickly. Capricorn is ambitious, tenacious, practical, tough, economic, responsible and cold-blooded, they posses good planning skills and the sense of duty and restriction. On the other hand, he may be overly emulous, selfish, unmerciful, cold and may incline to melancholy or sadism. Since Capricorn prefers old and well-established methods he is usually quite conservative, too. He achieves success thanks to his great effort and tireless strenuousness, seldom it is the result of his good luck. He tries to take as much as possible out of any situation, therefore he may be considered to be an opportunist. Capricorn is always grounded, he dislikes dreaming away. He is characterised by his long-term psychics which enables him to be one of the most patient and obstinate beings on the Earth. His plans are mature, deliberate and well-planned, Capricorn continues to work steadily until the work is finished. This stubborn temperament does not react to any immediate stimuli, no abrupt delusions can disturb him or lead him away from the path he has chosen. His conceptions and principles are usually harsh. Capricorn lacks adaptability and likes to surround himself with fixed schemes and structures. He can seldom make people like him spontaneously. This aloofness sometimes puts him into some kind of sniffy isolation. He desires for power but it is just because he thinks he cannot really become part of the world around him. Behind this stoic and harsh behaviour there is often the sharp and painful sensitivity of a person who cannot express his emotions and feelings.
