Capricorns are awesome. I know that because I personally am one. So is Kate Moss and Martin Luther King Jr. So that's pretty good company I'd say. People born between December 22nd and January 20th fall under Capricorn otherwise known as the sign of the goat. But what are some of the typical Capricorn traits?
Being compared to a goat may not be the most flattering (personally I'd rather be a dolphin or a unicorn) but turns out goats do have some good qualities, even if they kind of resemble Satan. Goats are steadfast in their ways (which means they know what they want and they stick to it) and can easily handle rough terrain. And who wouldn't that in a partner? Goats are loyal and true yet dynamic and funny. Ever play with a goat? They are peculiar yet oddly entertaining. Not as predictable as a dog and not as snobby as a cat.
Capricorns might need your help from time to time loosening up. Seeing as they love to work Capricorns have a hard time just chillaxin and having a good time. But once they open up their whacky sense of humor comes out and they're a barrel of laughs. Here's what you need to know about dating them:
1. Capricorns Are Logical
It's not that Capricorns can't appreciate whimsy or festive people, (remember Kate Moss is a cappy.). But if you say things like "this cleanse is so amazing" or "my wet hair gave me a cold" a Capricorn is likely to dismiss you. Facts are highly appreciated.
2. Capricorns Are Frugal
They may not want to splurge on that $500 handbag but their frugality will undoubtedly pay off when you guys are old and gray. Don't start bugging Capricorn to live a little because you want to eat out every night and can't figure out how to balance your bank account even though you're 35. Cappy isn't interested.
3. Capricorns Are Ambitious
For Capricorns, ambition is everything. So if your favorite activity is chillin with a bag of salt and pepper kettle chips in front of the TV, your sloth ass best keep walking. Because your Capricorn is having none of it. Capricorn yearns for success and accolade so appeal to their work-a-holic side. I'm not saying you should brag but letting a Capricorn know about your career success is the fastest way to their heart.
4. Capricorns Are Responsible
Do you like having your bills paid on time? Well then dating a Capricorn will likely whet your appetite. Capricorns are always responsible saving money for retirement at an early age, never losing their phone, and picking up the kids for school on time.
5. Capricorns Are Hilarious
Capricorn humor is either absurd and over-the-top or dry and witty. Jim Carrey, Betty White and Maggie Smith are Capricorns. So you get the idea. Either way a Capricorn will make you laugh so hard you'll pee your pants. You'd better get that diaper ready.
6. Capricorns Make Great Lovers
As Capricorn (like Taurus and Virgo) is an earth sign, they love partaking in pleasure of the flesh. In other words they like to get it on. Capricorns make for quite the passionate lover so if you've ever wanted to try handcuffs and whipped cream now's your chance.
