Many individuals pick up the paper and read their horoscope, but few really understand the Zodiac symbols or signs that they were born under and what their true meaning is. With Vedic Astrology, the study of the Zodiac is much more personalized with the understanding that the sun represents an individual's inner nature, personalities, and characteristics.
Capricorn, the Sea Goat, who is a methodical sure-footed climber, is a feminine sign and the tenth sign under the Zodiac calendar. The sea goat is half-goat and half-fish and symbolizes the death of the lower mind and birth of the spirit. In ancient times, the goat was a popular animal that was often sacrificed to the Gods as well. It is ruled by Saturn, which is known for its power of structure and responsibility, and the planet Mars, which is known for its action and desire.
Saturn is the king that gives individuals who are born under the Capricorn sign their karma, which is strong. Capricorn is an earth sign and individuals born under this sign tend to be possessive and quite jealous in nature. These individuals are also very goal-oriented and know what it takes to get the job done, so they are ambitious enough to try and acquire positions that have power and authority or positions that are admired by others.
Capricorn individuals are tenacious, logical, and equipped with urge to work long and hard. They will not hesitate at an opportunity to advanced or be promoted. They have a will to succeed in their strong will for personal ambition. These individuals are ambitious and are determined to succeed no matter what it may take and have the natural abilities of being executives or managers.
Early in life they have to learn how to overcome insecurities, but they will soon become grounded and succeed due to their initiative and overwhelming willingness to accept responsibilities.
One of the downfalls of Capricorns is that their pride is so strong that it makes it hard for them to admit whenever they are wrong or, when they are in need of assistance, to be able to ask others for help. They lack confidence that tends to make them defensive and even compete more aggressively to make up for this lack of confidence. They view this insecurity and their fears as a great weakness and try to hide these feelings and any other similar feelings from others, which does make it hard for others to become close to Capricorns. These individuals need a structured guideline to follow to obtain their goals, because if not, then they will often lose their way.
Capricorns are constantly in search of reaching the top and are happy to work hard and long to get what needs to be done to finish a job. Their readiness and energy is worthy in any given situation, but they can be lazy if they feel there is no need in working or if the same results can be achieved in another manner. Capricorns often fail to see the point of personal jokes, but their sense of humor is impeccable. They do hold grudges and beware for they might seek revenge as a result.
Capricorns tend to be builders, engineer, lawyers, business executives, and even politicians. Once they gain an understanding of a situation, then they are capable of easily manipulating it. These Capricorns live with traditional values, regulations, and rules along with thought and actions of proper behavior. At times, later in life these might be rejected.
Capricorns will develop good eating habits at an early age that they will keep with them as adults. They are actively competitive in sports and are known to be aggressive in their determination to win, but are gracious with losing. Capricorns enjoy participating in jogging, running, skating, hunting, wrestling, boxing, body building, and martial arts.
