Capricorn represents discipline, patience, and rationality. A Capricorn knows the value of sacrificing short-term satisfaction for the long-term goal, and you can rely on them to persevere to get there!
Those born in the sign of the goat tend to have a good sense of humor, although it is often expressed as a dry wit.
Capricorn understands the value of what has been tried and true - they lean towards conventional wisdom. At the same time, they excel at seeing what's not working in a given situation, and you can depend on them to come up with a plan that will make a difference.
Caps respect tradition and the elders of the culture. In esoteric or spiritual astrology, Capricorn rules initiation. An example would be when ancient Egyptians entered the pyramid: they let their lower self die in order to be initiated into embodying a higher form of their Divine Essence.
Negative traits associated with Capricorn include inflexibility, pessimism, mean-spiritedness, and a tendency to be a stick-in-the-mud.
Capricorn rules antiques, big business, government, the skeletal structure of the body, teeth, clocks, mountains, and depression.
