Capricorns are ambitious and motivated by a desire for success, status, money and position. Practical and patient, they are determined to succeed one way or another but they must learn, however, that the end never justifies the means. They have a good sense of humor but will not forgive being ridiculed or slighted. According to Indian Astrology, Capricorn’s make of themselves resourceful, determined managers; setting high standards for themselves and others. They strive always for honesty in their criticism of self, they respect discipline from above and demand it from those beneath them. In their methodical, tough, stubborn, unyielding way, they persist against personal hardship, putting their families and/or their work before their own needs and welfare to reach their objectives long after others have given up and fallen by the wayside. The loner of the zodiac, they are experts at concealing their insecurities preferring to be admired and respected. With a tendency to always test the loyalty of those closest to them, Capricorn has a great need to be loved and appreciated. If you can break through their cool exteriors, passions run deep and love will prove to be faithful and long lasting.
