To understand Capricorn, it is necessary to imagine the mountain goat making its journey to the top of the mountain, steadily and slowly. Capricorn’s from an early age have an ambitious urge for success, always aiming to reach the top in whatever field they pursue. This is the sign of age reversal; when young, Capricorn’s are serious and cautious but as they get older they lighten up considerably due to the fact that goals have been reached. This is a very sober, conservative and disciplined sign that like working within a structure and taking on responsibility and authority. Public reputation and image holds great importance to a Capricorn.
