Capricorns are known for their ambition and are often associated with money and hard work but there’s more to the Mountain Goat than dollar bills. They’re honest, loyal and are known for having a great sense of humor and enjoying time with friends and family. They’re sticklers for tradition and though they may have a small social circle, they are known to be generous and want nothing more than to be surrounded by loved ones during the holidays.
“Capricorn people are exceptionally known for their discipline and practical demeanor. It’s very likely that the Capricorn in your life is driven and always achieving their goals. They can be some of the best leaders of the Astrological bunch. It isn’t uncommon to find Capricorns fulfilling their life’s purpose as entrepreneurs or excelling in managerial positions. They’re action-oriented, logical, and are prone to exhibiting workaholic tendencies. Organization and strategy are key for these go-getters,” according to HipLatina’s astrology expert Esoteric Esa.
