More about Capricorn…

Capricorns set high standards for themselves and exhibit resourcefulness and determination as managers.

They are great family people who will out the needs of others before their own and will persist in personal hardships, working in a methodical way to solve their problems. They are economical and are good at managing money.

When things so not go their way, a Capricorn can get very pessimistic and in so doing bring down the spirits of all around them. They are not the easiest people to work with because they are not conducive to innovations or change. They tend to have mood swings, but can be surprisingly witty when in social situations.

Capricorns have a strong will to be achievers in life and are strongly motivated by factors like money, success, status and power.

Astropsychology of Capricorn

“How can you always be so prudent? Today the Stock market is so inviting that it is hard to stay away from it”. This is a good question to a fellow Capricorn if you want to put him on the spot. He will look at you so grimly as if you have insulted him badly.

He will not answer but right after it, he will try to defend himself: “No matter what I do or say, you are always accusing me of the same things:excess of prudence, fear of change, conservatism driven to extremes. Haven’t you ever asked yourselves how many times my so-called faults have saved me from financial ruin?”

Capricorns are not cowards, they simply do not like risk but if you look closely, they are the ones that make the best deals – they are stubborn but ready to take action at the right moment. In short, no risk for those born under the sign of Capricorn, no adventures in unknown territories, no Stock market, because their peaceful souls are ruled by Saturn. Sure, it is difficult to accept advice from those offering you risky investments, But tell me one thing – don’t you feel tempted to play the fool at least for one day? Think about it. Put aside a tidy sum of money, enough to have a good time and spend it all, up to the last penny. How about that?

Wealth does not lodge only in the corridors leading to your bank vaults but in those small and hidden corners of your soul where you have hidden love and sympathy. So, spend! You should buy classy lingerie for your wife, a digital camera for your son and an anti-stress device for yourself. Book a trip to a sunny Caribbean island and once you are there, when it is dark, go outside and count the stars. You will feel so much better.
