The Capricorn sign is known for being practical, ambitious and success-driven. Their approach to life is often characterized by structure, responsibility and efficiency and this maturity manifests from a young age. As a winter sign, Capricorns represent the motivation that the New Year brings in the form of plans, goals as well as the desire to be surrounded by people you love and the importance of family. At the same time, the contemplative and grim side of the goat is also linked to the winter blues. Just like the austere and icy landscape, Capricorns are often perceived as cold and distant. They find it hard to open up to people so their friend group is small but solid.
Crystal healing can support Capricorns and allow their best qualities and strengths to shine through. Here are some of the best crystals for Capricorn zodiac signs that can help you on your journey.
Characteristics of Capricorn - Strengths and Weaknesses
Date Duration: December 22nd - January 19th
Planetary Ruler: Saturn
As an Earth sign, Capricorn possesses a grounding energy and prefers stability, patience and perseverance. These signs are thoughtful and reflective, aware of their limitations but always working hard to achieve their goals in a logical and structured manner.
Cardinal signs, such as Capricorn, are often on the traditional and more conservative spectrum of the zodiac. When imbalanced, this energy can create a rigid and inflexible need to do what society considers to be "right" rather than listening to their intuition. The need for discipline and structure of a Capricorn is unmatched in the zodiac, even by fellow Earth sign and perfectionist Virgo.
It is no surprise that Capricorn's ruling planet, Saturn, represents obligation, commitment and the restrictions that we face when going through life - hardly a carefree planet. This can also create unnecessary stress and is responsible for the gloomy nature of most Capricorns when self-doubt creeps in. At times like this, close friends and family can ease the tension and help Caps express their feelings instead of bottling them up as they usually do.
However, Saturn does bring blessings as well in the form of delayed gratification, reminding us that good things are worth waiting for. A fair judge that rewards perseverance and hard work.
