The star sign of Capricorn is the mountain goat & it's ruling planet is Saturn.Like the goat,the Capricorn wants to climb to the highest point.He is very ambitious.Social status,prestige,respectability,fame & money are what he aspires for.In order to achieve these he exercises great self-control,discipline,hard work,determination & perseverance.He is thrifty, mature,conservative,prudent & practical.All these qualities make him efficient & successful.Capricorns are very stable & serious.Naturally-because the climb to the top is tough business!They make sure that they do not fail-by thinking long & deep before taking any action.
Here is a list of their strengths & weaknesses.Since they are so focused on success,they tend to make use of people & circumstances to their benefit.This could project them as being selfish & domineering.Some of those who have been at the receiving end may call them egotistical and ruthless but of course,it all depends upon individual horoscopes.
Another interesting bit from the web says that Capris are somewhat aloof,inhibited & reserved;which is why they do not have many friends.Fun & frolic is not their cup of tea.
Capricorns' weak spots are their skeletal system & skin.
Martin Luther King Jr and Michelle Obama are two famous Capricorns.
