These actually all sound a lot like me.

I’ve been hearing so much around me about astrology, horoscopes and stars aligning… I had to look into it a little since it’s never really interested me before. Surprisingly, most of the attributes attached to my ‘sign’ are fairly accurate. I’m a Capricorn – daughter of Karma, rooted to the Earth, water is the soul.

The daughter of Karma bit, I’m not so sure of.

But being rooted to the Earth makes complete sense in this head of mine. I’ve always felt more grounded just by stepping foot outside and seeing nature. I’ve always been amazed with the way nature and the Earth can move together harmoniously, and then, at times be suddenly so infuriated that it sends catastrophic wavelengths throughout its entire being. Yes, I’m a force to be reckoned with myself.

Water is the soul. Water. Is. Soul. The only thing I can think of that makes this piece make sense is that when I’m near the ocean, my entire body feels at peace.  Anxiety? Gone. Constant thinking? Not here. Sore muscles and bones? Gone. Head filled with doubt? Not anymore. The ocean has been the ONLY thing I’ve ever experienced that has truly given me the sense of being at home with myself and my mind. It helps my head feel clear; it gives me a state of mind in which is what I imagine meditation creates – though instantly, I don’t have to think about it or even try – as soon as I hear and see the ocean it’s like my slate has been instantaneously cleared.


Other characteristics I found that I thought were great descriptors of my personality and being:

  • Capricorn’s are shy, cautious people and take a long time to open up their deep feelings and fun side to others. Typically being labeled ‘too serious’ or ‘unapproachable’; however, beneath the tough exterior lies a warm heart wanting to love and be loved
  • An insatiable, yet methodical, desire for knowledge
  • Hard working, sincere and soft-hearted; yet a stickler for quality
  • Misfit often underestimated for their cold nature
  • Rational, logical, intelligent and clearheaded
  • They care what people think, and hate being doubted
  • They try to be an outgoing person but in the first meeting them they come across as very shy and innocent but once get to know they come across as more of a carefree soul
  • Meticulous women who have full knowledge about their strengths and weaknesses
  • They give and demand respect. They believe that everyone should get equal opportunities to build a secure future
  • Concerned with family values
  • Fair and have a strong sense of justice

  • Straightforward and thus don’t like to be shocked or surprised
  • Takes time to get cozy with new surroundings
  • Takes time to adjust because they want themselves to appear polite, and surely they are
  • Productive by nature
  • Simply not built for making promises they can’t keep or accepting responsibilities they can’t deal with

  • Expect more from themselves than anyone else
  • Pushy

  • Love to be free and independent
  • Temper is often mild unless they disapprove of something – in which case they will not hesitate to express their annoyance
  • Usually have a very silly, playful and enjoyable sense of humor that most don’t get the chance to experience
  • Awkward romantics
  • Loves the concept of love, but it doesn’t come naturally for them
  • Let a Capricorn know from the beginning how you feel and they’ll respect you more – whether it’s what they want to hear or not
  • “Show me disloyalty, I’ll show you detachment”
  • Do their own thing
  • Down to earth
  • Realistic
  • Often quiet and reserved at work – not often the easiest to get to know

These were the ones that really stuck out to me. What other characteristics have you found that fit you as a Capricorn? Does your astrology sign hold any significance to you? Does your sign fit your personality? Do you even care?
