Capricorn is the Earth Element of the Cardinal signs. It is ruled by the planet Saturn.

Capricorn is the sign of organisation, structure, responsibility and planning. They are persistent and patient and are capable of great strength and perseverance. They are careful and calculated in their actions and generally accomplish their goals through sheer determination. Capricorn sets out to be effective in practical terms. Efficiency is something Capricorn desires above all else. It does not want to be dependent on others, but to be in control of itself. It must convince itself that what it enjoys is also socially important.

The key phrase for Capricorn is “I use”. Capricorn is a sign that knows how to utilise whatever and whoever is at hand to accomplish a goal.

Capricorn is grounded, ambitious, realistic, reserved and structured but can be cold, pessimistic and withdrawn.

Wherever you find Capricorn in your horoscope, you can establish something permanent. You are likely to be quite organised, efficient and careful in this area of your life.
