Dear Capricorn, your perseverance and follow through are two solid pillars of your successful life, both professionally and personally.
These qualities, in addition to your sound work ethic and tenacious approach, make you stand tall in your chosen field and society.
You often reach professional pinnacles that others can only dream of. Those who are envious of your success are also oblivious to your sacrifices and the extremely long hours you put into building your reputation and assets.
In fact, Saturn—the planet of hard work, service people, the underprivileged and success through tenacity—is your powerful yet fear-inducing ruler.
Parashara, one of the fathers of Vedic astrology, called you “reliable, honest and sincere.” This is because your steady and no-frills approach makes you a favorite of all those who want a serious and stable relationship partner and colleagues.
However, you seek a sensitive and emotional partner who can compensate for your distant façade.
But you aren’t unfeeling, dear Capricorn.
It’s just that to ‘get things done’ you must avoid turmoil and drama. And it works.
Unlike many peers who start projects and leave them unfinished, you take all your goals to the finish line and know no boredom in the process—because you know that sacrifice is a must when you set to achieve anything of value. And you do sacrifice yourself, dear Capricorn.
For this reason, your family and loved ones are grateful to you—even when they complain about your long hours at the office and miss you.
- Status builder
- Overly ambitious
