Capricorn star sign: Horoscope dates, meaning, character traits and compatibility

Must read

CAPRICORN is the tenth sign of the zodiac.

They are known for being ambitious yet realistic.


What are the traits of a Capricorn?

Maybe your career has been ticking along  – but your time in the sun is back, and it’s time for action this week. 

This can be anything from getting work dreams into words, and starting to focus properly on your future, to approaching someone whose job you’ve always admired, and asking for tips.

In love terms, Venus highlights compatibility and Mars fires up pure passion.

Someone right there in your life can provide both.


What are the Capricorn horoscope dates?

If you’re born between December 22 and January 20, then you’re a Capricorn.

The dates for the rest of the signs are:

Weekly Horoscope – November 19 – 25

After a time of resistance you are ready to look deep inside and admit you need more.  This week you have the chart to achieve it.

Step one is honesty about what you want – not what you think others may like.

Step two is allowing yourself to make mistakes, and carry on.

Passion, this week, is going for gold and yes, this can be a special ring, or ornate announcement lettering.

What signs are compatible with Capricorn?

Practical Capricorns have a great sense of humour, and need someone who can appreciate them and their ambition.

Best matches:

  • Taurus – Both earth signs, and are both driven by money and the finer things in life
  • Pisces – Their differences help this romance work, as Pisces can encourage Capricorns to take life less seriously, and Capricorns give security to the relationship
  • Virgo – Both are clever hard-working signs which could create a long-term, successful relationship

Worst matches:

  • Aries – These signs completely clash, as risk-taking Aries will frustrate sensible Capricorns, and they will also both compete for power in the relationship
  • Sagittarius – Sagittarius can be passionate yet immature, which is completely unsuited to sensible Capricorns
  • Leo – Conservative Capricorns won’t see eye-to-eye with extravagant Leos, making compromises difficult

Where does the Zodiac come from?

The Zodiac is the term used to describe the circle of 12 divisions of celestial longitude that are centred upon the path of the sun.

The 12 divisions share the names we know as our star signs.

The term zodiac derives from Latin zōdiacus – meaning “circle of animals”.

Throughout history, the zodiac has been used to predict or echo characteristics of personality.
