The Rundown on Capricorns

Essential info about the Sea-Goat of the zodiac.

Capricorns are the 10th sign of the zodiac, represented by the Sea-Goat. In ancient mythology, the Sea-Goat was a protective god of knowledge and creation, which makes sense considering Capricorns are big on being knowledgeable and wise. Capricorn season begins during the winter solstice, a time when the dark days end and each day starts to become a little longer on the path to Spring Equinox. Capricorns are resourceful and chronically prepared for any situation, a reflection of the winter season, preparing for the worst on the path to better things. 

They are also the last of the cardinal signs. Capricorns are an earth sign, which is the strongest element and the beginning of all creation - without Earth, there is nothing else. As earth signs, Capricorns are natural leaders and strive to be powerful figures. That holds especially true when considering some notable and highly successful Capricorns like Denzel Washington, LeBron James, Bradley Cooper, Kate Middleton, Michelle Obama, and Betty White! 

Ruled by Saturn, Capricorns possess a lot of drive and discipline, which allows them to become successful and focus on creating the best outcome for themselves in any and all that they do. They are strong and strategic, but also reliable and consistent, which often makes them the go-to for any challenge and the greatest friend to have around for life advice. Capricorns like order and organization - they do not do well in chaotic and disorderly environments. They like beauty, elegance, and class. Armed with ambition and strong motivation, they are able to cut out a path for themselves that leads to great fame and fortune. Hardworking is the ultimate marker of a Capricorn, and they are hardly satisfied with their successes. 

The downside to their successful, driven, and passionate personalities is that Capricorns tend to be workaholics, sacrificing their own well-being for the sake of being successful. Taking the time for self-care and relaxing is simply not a priority for them, so it is important to pamper those Capricorns in your life, they really do need it!

Gifts For Organization and Order

Capricorns are always working and busy, so gift them with some organization

One of the most exciting parts of every new year is beginning a new planner! It is easy to tell yourself that you’ll remember when your dentist appointment 6 months from now is, or when the important meeting with your boss is coming up, or even when your best friend’s birthday is, but the truth is our minds are full, and this couldn’t be more true for Capricorns.

Having a busy life means that being and staying organized at both work and home can be a bit of a challenge.

Maintaining an orderly and tidy space can make all the difference in their busy and exhausting lifestyles. Gifting this cute bamboo desktop organizer is perfect for the Capricorn in your life who wants their space more neat and orderly but struggles to find the time!
