Persistent – Methodical – Ambitious – Resourceful – Conservative – Responsible – Practical - Disciplined

Skeptical – Uncompromising – Dictatorial - Unimaginative

Goats are very independent because they know their capabilities and they rarely trust others to finish details, they like to do it all themselves. Capricorns are very ambitious people, they always have a project they are pursuing and they want to feel their lives are fulfilled and important. They are extremely patient and will wait a long time for something they want. When an opportunity arises, they will plan their steps carefully. To others, they might appear hesitant but this is not true, they know that there is only one chance to succeed and they are working out the proper steps to accomplish their goal with flying colors.

Few people are as practical and ambitious as the Goat. The tenth sign, an earthy element, which makes the Goat down to earth and matter-of-fact. Caution is always a concern and this is due to Saturn, the ruling planet. However Goats are sometimes shy and lack self confidence and self-esteem.
