Capricorn Strengths

Capricorns are known for their desire to reach new and higher heights. In order to achieve this, Capricorns hone their minds to be sharp and detail-oriented. Nobody works harder than a Capricorn so that they can achieve their dreams.

Capricorns love challenges, and they are more than willing to take on new things, especially if they see it as an opportunity to learn and be better than what they are now.

Capricorns are sticklers for rules, and they are also very disciplined. These two qualities often endear themselves to their superiors, which is why you see many high ranking officials and leaders who are born under this sign.

As Capricorns have this one direction approach to success, it would not be unusual for those who are born under this sign to rack up one success after another, perhaps beginning in school by getting good grades and being teachers’ pets. As such, Capricorns are typically highly intelligent, multi-skilled, and are usually not the type of rest on their laurels.

Capricorn Weaknesses

The most common negative trait of Capricorns is their stubbornness. In their goal to achieve success, they are often inflexible and take a take-no-prisoners approach in life, especially in their careers.

As they are used to being among the cream of the crop, they hold others in the same regard and expect them to be up to the standards that they think are normal or average. This gives Capricorns a lot of frustration especially if others fail to deliver based on their high expectations.

Capricorns can also be quite controlling, preferring to do things themselves and refusing to ask for advice or assistance even if it is already an inconvenience.

Being cold and calculating are signs of a Capricorn, as they would do whatever it takes to succeed, often to the point that they would be stepping on somebody else’s toes. While Capricorns are defined by rules, they may not hesitate to bend or break regulations outright if that is what it would take to get a win.

Capricorns in Health

Capricorns are prone to health concerns such as knee ailments, skin conditions, as well as mental health problems. Mental health disorders are pretty common due to their personalities. The stress of trying to be the best all the time as well as the frustration of failing at times can put such a strain on a Capricorn’s mental faculties.

Fortunately, Capricorns are also known to be calm even in times of stress, but there are always dangers when the pressure gets to be too much.  As such, those who are born under Capricorn are recommended to relax and take up a hobby that will soothe and calm their minds.

What’s great about Capricorns, though, is that sickness rarely locks onto them due to sheer force of will. The mind over body approach works well for Capricorns, and this allows them to fight off conventional diseases. As they do not like being told what to do, this can of course work against them especially as they tend to visit doctors for what they would consider being mild medical conditions.

Capricorns are also known to have a healthy regimen. They have the will and discipline to eat healthily and exercise regularly. However, they should also include mental exercises such as relaxation, yoga, or just do some social detoxing to help clear up the mind and keep the mind in tip-top shape.

Capricorns in Career

Capricorns are usually successful in their careers. Due to their A-Type personalities, they are usually found in the echelons of the corporate ladder. Capricorns should prepare to have a lot of enemies, though, as those born under Capricorn can easily rub people the wrong way.

High expectations from your co-workers and subordinates can cause a lot of friction, so you should definitely set the bar a little bit lower especially if you expect a lot from your team.

Some Capricorns may also find the need to have a mediator between you and other people. This is because Capricorns often have a little bit of difficulty conveying emotions. What’s good about Capricorn bosses, though, is that they are loyal to a fault and they will do whatever is necessary to protect and support you, for as long as you are on their side.

Capricorns are not known to be party people. They are the zodiac’s introverts, and would often appear to be shy and guarded even to those that he deems friends. It takes a certain level of closeness for Capricorns to open up, and that is something that may take years to manifest.
