The mountain goat is always climbing
higher and higher toward the summit. He is sure-footed and never
falls, and knows where he is going. Other animals cannot catch him
because he simply climbs higher and looks out over the world from a
safe and secure place on the mountain top. Astrologers think that
the mountain goat is a good symbol for those born under the sign of
Capricorn because they are the type of people who have a goal
towards which they will work hard and long. Capricorn people usually
have plenty of self-discipline and are successful in what they do.
The most important thing to a
Capricorn is achievement. He will tend to take life seriously, and
it is important for him to be good at something. He needs to feel
that he has a skill, something he can do better than anyone else.
Capricorn people are hard workers and many of them make excellent
teachers, lawyers and statesmen. They are also quiet and diplomatic
and know how to be subtle and tactful in their dealings with others.
It may take a long time for you to get to know a Capricorn person,
because he is often serious and shy by nature.
Capricorn is an earth sign, like Virgo and
Taurus. If you are a Capricorn you will probably find that as you
grow older it will be more and more important for you to achieve
success in something and earn recognition for your abilities. Work
is very important to you. Family life is equally important, and you
may have a love of history and tradition. Your special and unique
gift is your inner determination to succeed at what you want in
life, and that means you probably will.
