Capricorn: Love and Hate FAQ
Q) Why do people hate Capricorns (January 16 to February 14)?
A) Because Capricorns are almost always RIGHT. Because we NEED them. Capricorns have managerial strengths and a powerful sense of values. This is why their leadership, friendship, or affections can be oppressive and insufferable. But they often win in the end, and that’s what scares the competition. Caps do their homework before the test. When you go into the board rooms of wealth and leadership, and meet the power-brokers themselves, they are likely going to be predominantly (Sidereal) Capricorns. Several U.S. presidents were Capricorn, including Abe Lincoln, Franklin Roosevelt, and Ronald Reagan.
Q) Why are Capricorns so bossy?
A) The sea goat is the most resolute, starts at the bottom and ends up on top of the heap. Most Capricorns also drag a lot of other less ambitious, less talented people with them, thinking all the while that these passengers, as it were, are superior to them. Capricorns are filled with scorn for anyone that doesn’t listen to them. Eventually, heavy responsibility comes their way, even though they don’t want it; power will be thrust into their hands because of their competence and abilities.
Q) Why are Capricorns boring?
A) They think the same thoughts over and over until they get them right, or until someone corrects their mistake. Capricorns don’t take anything at face value, they question everything, especially untried ideas and methods. If you come at them with high hopes, optimism or hype, they will shoot you down and remind you of all the reasons why it won’t work. They know too much to explain it all to fools.
Q) What are Capricorn’s positive traits?
A) Who else is so well grounded (earth sign) can employ delayed gratification so well (patience is the virtue of Capricorn) and has such lofty goals and sense of destiny? Capricorns are the surprise package, the goodies are saved for last. Think of a clump of soil and then realize all the energy, the fertility, the life forms it supports, all the complexity of the universe that could be mistaken for plain dirt.
Q) What happens if you fall in love with a Capricorn?
A) You are in for a rough period at the beginning, because Caps need to have respect for those who love them. Capricorns have a built-in bullshit detector, so you better be coming at them with the real thing. If it’s just a crush, they will pop the balloon before someone else does. But when Capricorns drop their defenses, and open themselves to love, they can insulate you in a blanket of security and a sense of belonging. If Capricorns don’t easily express passion, it’s because they haven’t met anyone powerful enough to break their routine. Your time is rewarded when you feel the certainty of Capricorn’s unconditional love, it is truly without limit!
