Anyone have any great insight into the personality of Capricorns? Most of the literature I've read says they are stable, steady, homebodies, faithful, etc...

But actually the ones close to me (i.e friends and family) seem to be a bit materialistic, (gold diggers) dishonest with lovers, unfaithful, (but its always the other person's fault cause they DROVE them to cheat) self absorbed, party animals, and downright cheap. Not all, but a lot of them.

Any opinions?

The women of the species I have known are lovely...grounded, beautiful, spines of steele, calm, nurturing...but..

Controlling...

And the men of the species...controlling, controlling, controlling...even men with something other than a Cap sun, just a high Cap influence...controlling....

But...the need for control is manifested externally as a reflection of an inner feeling of lack of control. From what I have seen...

Glad you posted this....(me tired of Aquas too.... <sigh> )

My FAV Cap man...the epitome of the male Capricorn persona....

It's interesting that you say they are controlling, cause by looking at their outward physical behavior I would never think so, but actually the ones I know DO use a lot of mental manipulation to try to get what they want from their partner. An attempt at control...

They play a lot of mind games so they always know where they stand.

So do the men have positive traits as well? Are they known to be faithful? Romantic? or Players and Roamers? I've also seen "loners" used to describe them.

...from what i've experienced, i can agree with everything said so far. lol

controlling, indeed.

game playing, self-absorbed & cheap, yes. especially when Aquarius is a personal planet as well.

just what i've gathered from experience and observations of these folk.

I have a lot of observations of Cap females..I am one, my sister is one, a best friend, my aunt, my cousin..

Cap women have quirky sense of humor and can be pretty ferocious

Though I wouldn't call any of us cheap..controlling, yes.

Here's the chart of a man who could fill that bill -- half the time.....

That was my ex-partner: alcoholic, often unemployed, narcissistic/manipulative. I see wasted potential in this chart :-(

Hippi, that hit the nail on the head in regards to my ex -- VERY perceptive of you

On the other hand:

..... that's my mother

*In General* I like Cappies, square to my Sun or not. My Mars in Virgo likes and approves of their Earth-Sun energies.....

Don't make me pull this thread over!

I unfortunately have to give Hippichick her "epitome of a Capricorn" singer. That guy's (Peter Steele's) chart is insanely Capricornian (Sun, Mercury, Venus, and Mars. Edited to remove conjecture about the time he was born.).

Alternate Capricorn singers of note:

Elvis Presley - 2nd House Sun. I can see the Taurus influence I think.
David Bowie - 12th House Sun. So that's why he's so cool, so sexually ambiguous, and so out there.
Jimmy Page - Sun conjunct Mercury in the 2nd, he probably should have sang.
John Denver - Sun the 8th (Gemini Rising), Pisces Moon, Saturn in the 1st. My Sun is also in the 8th, but I have the opposite Moon placement in Virgo. My Saturn's also in the first. He's got more water than I do. I also favor the acoustic guitar.
Dave Matthews - No birth time. Sun, Moon, Merc all Capricorn.
Dave Grohl - Sun in the 1st conjunct Ascendant. I guess we know where he gets his edge.
Michael Stipe - Sun in the 4th conjunct Saturn. Yikes!... but Moon in Pisces.

The women Caps that I know are outgoing, very witty and have a great sense of humor.

I always seem to draw them as friends. But they're the kind of friends that you have an "on and off" relationship with. But, when you pick it back up, it's as if you never stopped talking. HAS ANYONE ELSE EXPERIENCED THIS?

On the downside, I have noticed them to be back-stabbish, somewhat gossip-y and quite moody.

The ones i've met are insanely talented/workaholic, very attractive in an unconventional way, and almost always fall for the wrong people [especially if their Venus is aspected by/connected to Neptune].

Of the singers, John Denver is the embodiment of most of my Cap male friends. They're all amazingly talented and were born with an acoustic guitar attached to the hip.

I would swear that Bowie belongs on the Aqua thread, though.

As for Cappies on LL...AG is King Cool.

Despite everything, there is something about the men that radiates a quiet strength, and I love that. I dated one Capricorn years ago, and had to break it off when I discovered he was MARRIED!

I have many Capricorn girl friends, and they are all over the spectrum from happily married domestic goddesses to untamable party girls gone wild!

I'm sorry to say but they are my least favourite Zodiac sign.
All the ones I have met always have a "plan". And if plan A doesn't work then they have contingency plan B and if you don't fit in with their plan they can walk away without a backward glance.
It's not that airy fairy Aquarian thing about walking away it's a cold dismissal that if you don't fit the agenda there is absolutely no point continuing.
I find them somewhat sinister.
If you fit in with the agenda great if not they can amputate quite painlessly.
They always remind me of the goat depicted in certain Tarot decks as the Devil.
A double edged sword.
Oh I just know what this will unleash but I have to be honest about my experiences of them.
Put it this way, I am willing and more than happy to be proved wrong but so far......

My best friend is a Cappie. She is sweet, thoughful, intelligent, proud, diligent, ambition-driven, fun.

She is also controlling, arrogant, dismissive, overbearing, unwilling to open her mind to another opinion, self absorbed and a might devious.

A good Capricorn is completely loyal. You should appreciate that.

I haven't posted here in about... a year and a half. However as i'm going through a miserable reaction to choices i've made in the past (along with my wife) I decided to open myself to how i feel and think about how I really am, as well as who i want to be.

At work, i'm quiet, i'm a trainer by profession so i get to look into details about things, develop things no one has done before, and i take all the punshiment and the glory for my own work. I wouldn't have it any other way. On the other hand I have a tendency to be lazy. I find myself lacking motivation, insipration two things that are very crititcal to my own success.

At home: I have a wife, and 2 daughters. I come home everyday, and do 1 of 3 things. Watch tv (always something educational), sit on the computer until my wife yells at me (I have the ability to block out anything that i'm not focused on when i'm focused if i want), or work on a model (my longstanding hobby). Besides the people i know at work, and my wife/kids, i have not a single friend, not a person that i would go to, to just drink a beer with, and talk, or anything else. I hide my home life from anyone that i converse with. Mostly due to our drug addiction.

Outside of home and work: Non-existant no exageration, i have no life outside of my work and family. Every time i find a person to connect with, it happens to be a woman, and after about 2 minutes I realized that even a friendship is impossible...

I like to consider myself an average capricorn, but i've nothing to compare myself to. All the ones that I knew in my former life i had to burn the bridges with.

To sum up my character:
Good days: A bit eccentric, creative, emotional, insipring, charismatic, nurturing, listener, I can offer excellent advice in personal matters, I dream deep and large (owning my own business), On good days I also long for attention, a glance, recognition, even a motivation push from someone in the form of words... however.

Bad days: Depresssive, envious, misunderstood, angry, even though i dream deep i'm either too scared to take steps to make something happen, or I will create an excuse as to why this isnt the best time. Judgemental, when i get recognition, i almost refuse to accept it. I lack the confidence i need to move forward with my life, I lack the willpower to fight the fights that need to be fought. I've been known to completly give up on things. Jobs, relationships, friendships, even some of my faimly. Withdrawn, distant, un-forgiving.

I can't tell you which if any of these qualitites stick out to me as some that we would posess. Regardless of what you are, it's sad when you hold secrets in your soul that you could gaurentee others would love you for, but you can't bring yourself to fight enough to feel like it's ever worth opening up to someone.

If i had to say there was any one thing that I think nearly all capricorns have in common is that because most of us are so causious, and reserved, when we do open up and get burnned, it's a scar we seem to bitterly carry forever, but in an i can do better than you/that sort of way. Which in turn makes us more causious... Kind of ironic isn't it?

My mother is a Capricorn, and I don't know her time of birth,unfortunately. She's also more than a bit emotionally unstable, and we suspect she's got Borderline Personality Disorder, so she's probably not the best frame of reference, but...

My husband is a Cap sun, Cap asc, Cancer moon. And although he and my mother would both detest being told they have anything in common, these are the common threads I see:

The bank account is always foremost in their mind. They're always on the lookout for the best rate at all banks. They know the price of everything at the supermarket. To the penny. They are both forever returning at least 50% of their purchases to the store, since they get home, rethink the purchase and decide it's not such a great buy after all.

They both have trouble giving money to relatives (like for wedding gifts, for example) and think and think and think on this ad nauseum... and have this little internal debate going on, and usually err on the side of cheapness, and usually regret having given "too much".

They both do "too much" in the house and at work and bemoan the fact that nobody appreciates them.

They both have trouble sleeping if something went wrong at work. And talk about it the next day, so you know how exhausted they are.

They both look much younger than their age.

I burst out laughing at that one -- and I thank you deeply for the laugh: not having many these days.....

This is my Cappy mother to a "T"!!! I kid you not, if toilet paper was on sale, she would bring home 10 packages. If hamburger was on sale ("it's 20 cents cheaper per pound than it was yesterday!!") she'd buy ten pounds and freeze most of it.

The last time I was home, before she sold her house, I found dozens of packages of toilet paper, at least 50 boxes of kleenex, 20 blankets, and at least 50 cartons of light bulbs in her attic-storage.....

But I think that bargain-sniffing and salting-away-for-a-rainy-day behavior was as much from being a kid growing up in the Depression, as it is being a Sun Cappy.....

Now Azalaksh, you made ME laugh... and it's because I forgot to mention that my mother has a mini-mart in her basement. Toilet paper for six months (on sale), Bounty in heaps (for the same reason), every Suave and VO5 shampoo you could imagine (how could she resist, on sale?). And on and on and on. Sardines piled up, ramen noodle soup.

And my husband has filled our closets to the point of bursting with shaving cream, soap,deodorant, and razors. All, guess what, on sale!

I'm a Cappy NN (Cappy wannabe ), and guess what I have in MY closet?? A mini-mart of different shower and facial soaps, at least 10 different kinds of shampoo and conditioner, and the same in body butters/skin lotions
Mama taught me too well
Or maybe it's my Venus in Libra -- things that smell intoxicating and feel oh-so-lovely on the skin/hair

I have Venus in Libra, too, BTW, so I understand completely.
