It's pretty lonely at the top, which is pretty much where goats are. They love their solitude. They're very ambitious, organized, efficient and responsible. The flip side of that is they can be very cold, calculating, suspicious and rigid. They are also their own worst critics. A Capricorn will beat himself up over just about anything that he does not believe he has done as best as possible. So no need to point out their shortcomings. They will do it for you in spades.

The Capricorn must have security at all costs. In order to get this security they will step on anyone who gets in their way. This is an odd mix with a sign that can also be very kind. At the same moment they're telling you that you have a nice shirt that they'll immediately follow that remark with a command to get out their way so so they can go to the men's room. They are certainly odd in that respect. The good thing about a Capricorn is that if you have done them a favor, they will be forever in your debt. They never fail to repay an act of kindness.

A Capricorn needs approval from the whole world. So finding one who will commit to loving one person is not easy. But if you can find your way to their sense of humor, you will also find your way to their heart. This is not an easy thing to do as their sense of humor is very dry. But once you've figured it out, half the battle is won. Once you are able to finally make your way to a Capricorn's heart, you have a very good chance of having it for life.

At the job, goats love to be in charge. Because of this, they make very good managers. Many rags-to-riches stories that you hear will involve a goat. They take great pride in being able to overcome adversity and turning nothing into something great. Howard Hughes and Aristotle Onasis were both Capricorns. These were two of the richest men of their time.

As goats get older their lives become more rewarding. It is rare to see a goat losing fame and fortune as he gets older. They are very shrewd businessmen and know how to invest. As a result, as the years go by they only become more successful. Because of this, many goats live long lives because they become more relaxed as they get older.
