Those with the Capricorn birth sign frequently show two different sets of personality traits. Some Capricorns will grow out of one set of traits and into another, but not all Capricorns experience this change.
The Capricorn's symbol is the goat; different types of goats can be used to describe their different personality traits. Some have the symbolic traits of mountain goats, climbers who are constantly striving to achieve more in life, both personally and professionally. Capricorns of this kind are not comfortable with life until they have reached the apex of who they want to be. Others are more like garden goats - they are relatively happy in their station in life and have little will to move above and beyond that station. When pushed, however, this kind of Capricorn can and will achieve greater things.
All Capricorns are patient and determined, by nature. They are in tune with the fact that life is about steps and until that first step is taken there can be no progression. Capricorns have a tendency to be extremely one-sided if they don’t work hard on balancing all aspects of their lives. For this reason, many Capricorns are successful in business, but fail in relationships, or vice versa.
In relationships, Capricorns are looking for long-term love. They need someone to give them the love and attention they rarely give themselves. When a Capricorn finds the perfect mate, they stick with that mate for life. Getting to know a Capricorn personally can be difficult. They often hide their true feelings and personality behind a virtual wall; however, once you break that wall you’ll find a sensitive person dedicated to the relationship.
