Ambition – Capricorns can be very ambitious and they can be ambitious to a fault. Being ambitious itself is not a bad thing, it is a very good trait to have however Capricorns can be ambitious at the expense of others.
Capricorns will often become friends with people solely because of the benefits they have to offer. They will do this at the expense of cultivating real relationships. They will strategize and plan how to insert themselves into the lives of the people who can help them. Once again, being ambitious is a very desirable trait, however, it is important to be considerate of the feelings of others and remember that people are not transactions or products.
1. Stoic Nature – Stoicism is a philosophical movement from the Hellenistic period. Stoicism prizes wisdom, moderation, fortitude, and self-control.
When not practiced properly it can lead to repression of emotions and the inability to communicate your feelings and boundaries. This can be quite harmful to Capricorns because they need regular reassurance.
Stoicism and level-headedness are both very coveted attributes however they both need to be in moderation. Emotions are important and they should not be repressed.
2. Determination – Capricorns are very determined. This is why they tend to excel in leadership positions and business. Determination and focus are very prized traits however Capricorns tend to struggle with hyperfocus. Capricorns find it hard to abandon projects halfway however some projects need to be abandoned.
They also struggle with perfectionism so they will overwork themselves at the expense of their relationships, personal life, and even health.
Capricorns are very stable, level-headed, dependable, loyal, and realistic. They are the ultimate earth sign so they are not compatible with all the signs. They work well with Taurus and Virgo, the other Earth signs as well as Scorpio and Leo however they do not work well with Aries and Sagittarius. Let’s take a look at the 2 least compatible signs of Capricorn and why they are not very compatible
Although a romantic relationship might be explosive and interesting in the beginning, it will become stressful very quickly if there is no compromise and proper communication between the parties.
Just like Aries, Sagittarius is another Fire sign that is not very compatible with Capricorn. Sagittarius’ are generous, funny, impatient, not a fan of clingy people and details. This results in quite a stressful match. The lack of attention to detail will no doubt irritate and stress the Capricorn who values practicality, methods, and organization.
Both signs may also clash because of how impatient Sagittarius’ are and their inability to handle clingy people. Capricorn’s need for reassurance may be misinterpreted as being clingy and result in Sagittarius feeling constrained. However, with proper communication and conscious work, these traits could complement each other very well. A Capricorn can help a Sagittarius become more focused and serious and a Sagittarius is just what a Capricorn needs to wind down and forget about work.
