Why Capricorns Are So Misunderstood?

By Carol Allen

I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but those born with the Sun, Moon, or rising sign in Capricorn get a pretty bad rap.

It’s probably because second only to Scorpio, this sign is the most full of contradictions, so it can be very confusing. It tends to be receptive, sensitive, and introverted. But it’s also a cardinal, or “movable” sign, known for giving incredible ambition, and a willingness to put one’s feelings “on the shelf” and make huge sacrifices to “do one’s duty.”

It’s ruled by Saturn, the planet of slow and steady progress, and conservatism. But again, it’s movable, so it tends to be extremely creative and innovative, and lead a person to make lots of changes all the time.

Capricorns, being ruled by Saturn, are supposed to be humble and concerned about the suffering of others, but are just as known for their coldness, selfishness, and love of fame.

In fact, flip through any Sun sign book, and this sign is the most accused of shallow social climbing, marrying for money, and using others for their own personal gain.

I once even heard in an astrology class that most of the top Nazi officials were Capricorns… Yikes!

So, what gives?

Should you avoid people of this sign at all costs? If you are a Capricorn, should you alter your birth records and pretend to be a Sagittarius?


I’m here to testify that there are many WONDERFUL qualities about this sign. Every person I’ve ever spoken to that had either the Sun, Moon, or rising sign in the sign of Capricorn has had some key things in common.

“Capricorns are known for their slow and steady progress, and this is also why the second half of their life is usually the best, and commonly when they’re happiest settling down.”

Capricorns are perfectionists, thus need to be doing well to be truly happy. They tend to have extremely high standards in everything – even relationships. They can’t help but compare themselves to just about everybody.

So, if you love a Capricorn, do yourself a HUGE favor: NEVER criticize him. NEVER bring him your disappointment. NEVER, ever, ever compare him to someone else in a negative way. (But he’ll LOVE it if you compare him to others in a positive way!)

Aside from the perfectionism and high standards, Capricorns can also be giddy and fun.

They’re born very serious and responsible, but get more and more easygoing and carefree with time.

When I tell an older Capricorn how serious they are, they’ll say, “Oh yeah, I USED to be like that. Now I don’t so much worry about it…”

They’re known for their slow and steady progress, and this is also why the second half of their life is usually the best, and commonly when they’re happiest settling down. They work hard at being good partners, and pride themselves on being totally there for loved ones.

When a healthy Capricorn man he says he’ll call at eight, he’ll call at eight. He’ll be “steady Eddie” and “Johnny on the spot” about everything.

If you commit to a Capricorn, you’ll enjoy a down-to-earth partner you can count on, who will be constantly bettering himself and his situation, who will say what he means and mean what he says.

Now, you may not know there are actually three signs within the sign of Capricorn called “constellations” or “asterisms” that are unique and distinct from one another.

Each has specific needs and gifts that are more personal than what I’ve described here.

Which is why one Capricorn man will be a better “catch” for you than another…

When you understand a man’s personality from this deeply psychological perspective, you can know just how to relate to him and how you’ll really get along.

So I’ve put all of this into my program, “Signs Of Compatibility” which you can read all about, or order totally risk-free by going here:


Take the guesswork out of understanding this confusing deer-faced, half goat/half reptile guy… :)

And everyone else in your life!

I explain ALL twenty-seven constellations and all of the nuances and subtleties that have EVERYTHING to do with relationships in my audio program, “Signs Of Compatibility – A Celestial Guide To You And Your Relationships Using The TRUE Love Zodiac.”

Best of all, you can run your own charts, and know at a glance which constellations are compatible together, and which ones are not – way beyond what you’ve ever learned about the “normal” signs and how they go together.

You see, you can be VERY compatible with one Capricorn (or Leo, or Gemini, or Cancer – you get the idea) but VERY incompatible with another.

The key to it all isn’t in the signs – it’s in the subsigns! And most people – even most astrologers – have never even heard of them.

Have all of this information at your fingertips to help you more deeply understand everyone you love in a way you never knew was possible.

And find out what’s really up with that Libra, Capricorn, Sagittarius, or “fill-in-the-sign” man in your life.

It’s all right here:
