Those with a strong emphasis in the sign of Capricorn have a difficult time revealing their emotions. This is not to say that their emotional makeup is less than any other sign, only that much of what they feel remains contained within and is only released when and if it feels appropriate to do so. This does not happen frequently. Their emotions run deep and they feel things on an intense level, but to those around them, they appear to have their emotions in check and offer little of their emotions externally to others. They are contained and reserved with their emotional expression and prefer it this way, probably due to the intensity of their emotions.
Most Capricorn individuals are professional in their outward expression. They appear to have their proverbial heads on straight and can generally be relied on to present themselves to the outside world as informed and knowledgeable, particularly in their chosen fields. Many have strong drive when it comes to achieving their objectives and are willing to work hard to move up the corporate ladder. They instinctively understand that everything takes time, due to the influence of their planetary ruler, Saturn. They realize that by using an approach that could be defined as one step at a time, they will gradually make their way in life. They also understand that this approach leads to less mistakes and they will not miss any steps along the way. Being well informed and not just appearing to have the know how is very important to them. They want to be relied on to make the proper decisions based on experience and knowledge.
When it comes to love, the seventh house should be taken into account as this describes the potential significant other that they would be attracted to; however, in general these people are looking for a knowledgeable individual, one who can be relied on and is consistent. They will not do well within a flighty partnership as there is a need for stability as well as commitment within the framework of a structured marriage. If they find someone with these criteria and also has a great sense of humour, which will inadvertently help them relax a little and enjoy life, they would feel as though they have attracted the perfect partner.
There are often deeply ingrained spiritual or religious ingredients in their personality. They are religious in their own sense although this does not indicate that they will be attracted to traditional religion although this is possible, because of the nature of Saturn. Tradition is important as it has been tried, tested and holds some truth to it. They will not just follow along blindly within cults or religious organizations as they have to understand the religion’s concepts and be comfortable with its teachings.
As a friend, Capricorn individuals are very reliable and usually true to their word. They rarely miss appointments and are on time and constant. If they say we will meet at such and such a time, they will be there probably even a little early. If you are late or are a no-show, it will not sit well with them.
These characteristics will be interlinked with the many other attributes found within the birth chart, but in general, the above characteristics describes the inner personality of most Capricorn individuals. It is important to remember that we are far more complex than just our Sun signs.
