Resident body+soul astrologer Natasha Weber dives deep into the characteristics and traits of December babies and the goat of the zodiac, Capricorns. 

Capricorns are born: December 22 – January 19

ELEMENT: Earth

SYMBOL: The Goat

RULING PLANET: Saturn

COLOUR: Chocolate and charcoal grey

BODY PARTS: Teeth, skin and the skeletal system

Capricorn personality traits:

Aspiring, serious and grounded, you’re the #bossbabe of the Zodiac, preferring to depend on your own abilities rather than rely on others. As a result, you’re fiercely independent. Shyness often plagues you in childhood. Yet, ruled by time-lord Saturn, you can be a late bloomer.

Your steely determination and tenacity keep your eyes on the prize until your objective has been won. Achievements are born from sheer grit and hard work. Highly ambitious, you set your sights high and quietly work towards conquering your goals.

Oozing with old-fashioned style, one might mistake you for a film noir femme fatale. Your classic tastes are refined and never vulgar. Amongst your best qualities are your competency, practicality, and wisdom. However, at times, you can be rigid and a tough taskmaster.

What career and money means for Capricorns:

Known as the sign of the millionaire, you’re destined for success. Responsibility sits comfortably with you, as you’re a natural-born leader. You thrive best in jobs that offer a formal process of advancement to higher levels of salary or authority. Your ambition drives you to the top of the career ladder.

Like the mountain goat, you see your job as a gigantic hill to conquer. And luckily, Goats are expert climbers. In the workplace, you’re efficient, organised, and resolved to always get the job done. While dedicated to your team, you can become a little obnoxious, especially if you feel your coworkers are not taking their job seriously.

Best jobs for Capricorns:

Due to your cool logic and stellar capabilities, suitable career choices include real estate agent, teacher, financial advisor, human resources manager, business analyst, editor-in-chief, police commissioner, CEO, architect or any high-ranking position in a large corporation.

Growing your money tree is one of your favourite past times. Your philanthropic nature is ethical when considering investments, going above and beyond by choosing stocks, bonds and shares that are in line with your principles. Overall, you excel at saving and money management.

Once you’ve found a satisfying job, you’re likely to remain there and generate a healthy income. Rather than spending money on unnecessary stuff, or ostentatious things, you’d prefer to buy quality products or practical items such as a reliable car.

What romance means for Capricorns:

Capricorns have a habit of serial monogamy. They prefer to date people well known to them or already within their social circle. A captivating personality and an inquiring mind spark your interest, keeping you coming back for more. Once committed, you’re a protective, supportive, and faithful partner.

Until trust has been established, you can be reserved in the bedroom. Still, the right lover will bring out your inner sex goddess. The biggest hurdle you face in relationships is your tendency to put up walls for the purpose of self-protection. Left unaddressed, this can create rifts between you and your sweetheart.

Taurus and Virgo (suss them out here and here, respectively) are your rocks. Belonging to the Earth element, you understand each other’s need for commitment and keeping it real. Cancer’s heightened emotions heat up your cool-as-a-cucumber vibes, making for an intoxicating combination.

Avoid Gemini. They desire something more spontaneous than your predictable approach to romance. And, Leo will be yawning at hello.

Together, two Capricorns can work like a well-oiled love machine. As a couple, you’re willing to work through problems. The only speed bump you’ll face is both wanting to be in control, which can create issues if compromise isn’t made.

What family and friendship mean for Capricorns:

Family responsibilities are taken seriously. No matter what your age, you’re often considered the head of your clan, thanks to your dependability, honesty, and most of all, your stable influence. Your ability to remain calm sorts out a plethora of family disputes.

Sometimes, you come across as a strict disciplinarian or too impartial. Later in life, passing your wisdom onto your children brings you great satisfaction and purpose.

Friends think of you as intelligent; admiring your sharp mind and dry sense of humour. Although, you can come across as a little icy. While you enjoy meeting new people, it can take many years before you truly open up and allow acquaintances to become friends. You love hosting because you can dictate the music, food, and overall party vibe.

What health means for Capricorns:

Capricorns tend to be susceptible to broken bones, arthritis, and sluggish digestion. Due to your hardworking nature, you can be prone to injuries caused by strenuous labour. Always be careful to guard your knees and lower back. Deep tissue massage with a muscle warming balm helps to relieve tension.

The sign of Capricorn rules over bones and teeth, so include plenty of calcium in your diet such as dark leafy greens, sardines, seeds, and cheese. Being super goal orientated, you should treat good health as another challenge to meet head-on. Exercise with a competitive edge will keep you motivated.
