Capricorns are motivated, driven high-achievers. They will work steadily until they reach the highest level in an organisation. Occasionally this drive may distract them from looking after their personal and emotional lives, and a Capricorn should always try to make time to keep things in balance.

Emotionally, Capricorns may be slow to form bonds or partnerships, but once they do they will invest everything into making sure it works - consequently if things do go wrong they can take it very badly. Often a relationship is held on a par with a career, and will be pursued with similar dedication and drive.

An ingenious streak often manifests itself in this star sign, giving Capricorns the ability to find new and unusual solutions to problems. Combined with their tenacity, this helps them greatly in their journey to the top.

Their view of the world frequently gives Capricorns a dry and somewhat odd-ball sense of humour, and they are skilled at using their wit and charm to bring people around to their point of view. Capricorns try to avoid strife and conflict, and use their negotiating skills to bring peace in times of dispute.
