WESTERN ZODIAC SIGN OF
CAPRICORN

Those born under the Western Zodiac sign of Capricorn are responsible, patient, and self-sufficient. They respect self discipline and pride themselves on their resourcefulness and perseverance. When Capricorns put their mind to a goal there is no stopping them. For people so deeply interested in their own success, members of this sign are also surprisingly sympathetic, helpful, and caring. Capricorns enjoy rising to a challenge, whether or not that challenge is their own or a friend’s. This ambitious and dedicated sign likes to put in a good day’s work and earn the respect of others as well as themselves.

Capricorns have big plans, which means that they are very cautious about letting others into their inner world. To disrupt their plans, even unintentionally, is like spitting in their faces. Capricorns rarely trust anyone else to do the job right and may come across as controlling or even dictatorial at times.




This is not the most imaginative of the Western Zodiac signs. Instead, Capricorns enjoy playing by the rules, painting by the numbers, and knowing that they have taken all of the recommended steps toward success. They are a great combination of practical ability and ambition. There is little a Capricorn can’t do when they dedicate themselves to a goal. However, Capricorns can also overwork themselves to the point where they are wasting a lot of energy instead of stepping back and looking at challenges from a different angle. Feeling “stuck” is the worst case scenario for Capricorns, and usually means they need to take a break.

The sign of Capricorn is all about playing by the book and succeeding, but what they want to succeed at specifically has more to do with other zodiac influences than an inherent Capricorn interest. Each Capricorn has a corresponding Chinese Zodiac sign that can help shed quite a bit of light on the approach to life that each Capricorn chooses to take. The 12 different Chinese Zodiac sign combinations are listed below. If you don’t know your Chinese Zodiac sign, you can find both Western and Chinese signs using your Primal Zodiac sign, which can be found on this chart.




Capricorn born during the Year of the Dog...

Capricorns born during the Chinese Zodiac’s Year of the Dog are represented in Primal Astrology by the Boxer. The Dog intensifies Capricorn’s existing loyalty, helpfulness, and caring nature, but it also brings with it a tendency to be overly emotional and anxious. Boxers are not the most socially adept of Primal Zodiac signs but they are one of the most sincere. The life of a Boxer is more about overcoming internal indecision and inhibition than about finding external success, though in a perfect scenario they could go hand in hand.

Capricorn born during the Year of the Dragon...

Capricorns born during the Chinese Zodiac’s Year of the Dragon are represented in Primal Astrology by the Eagle. Eagles are proud, hard working, and extremely ambitious. The Chinese Zodiac’s Dragon brings a flair of nobility and a rather tireless sense of self confidence, though it also increases the likelihood that these Capricorns will become too black-or-white judgemental and get stuck defending their beliefs rather than questioning them. Eagles can easily overwork themselves and fill their days with more promises than they can keep. You can read more about the Primal Zodiac sign of Eagle by clicking here.


Capricorn born during the Year of the Horse...

Capricorns born during the Chinese Zodiac’s Year of the Horse are represented in Primal Astrology by the Salmon. Salmon are more outgoing and energetic than most other Capricorns, but they also have a tendency to be more moody and self-centered. Salmon are often restless and love to start new project and come up with new goals, but the downside is that they are less likely than other Capricorns to actually finish what they start. Still, this is a very self reliant sign that must be careful to stay open minded on their journey through life. You can read more about the Primal Zodiac sign of Salmon by clicking here.


Capricorn born during the Year of the Monkey...

Capricorns born during the Chinese Zodiac’s Year of the Monkey are represented in Primal Astrology by the Woodpecker. Capricorns are known for being resourceful but not necessarily innovative.

Like those born under the Year of the Horse, these individuals often like to jump from project to project and don’t always finish what they start. However, they usually remain cheerful and upbeat and along with Capricorn’s natural perseverance, this can be a powerful combination.

Capricorn born during the Year of the Ox...

Capricorns born during the Chinese Zodiac’s Year of the Ox are represented in Primal Astrology by the Ant.

They are quiet, serious, and focused on completing the task at hand. There never seems to be enough time to do all of the work that Ants want to do, but there are also no end to the projects they will take on.

Capricorn born during the Year of the Rat...

Capricorns born during the Chinese Zodiac’s Year of the Rat are represented in Primal Astrology by the Aardvark.

Capricorn born during the Year of the Sheep...

Capricorns born during the Chinese Zodiac’s Year of the Sheep are represented in Primal Astrology by the Mole. Moles are interesting because they often defy Capricorn’s need to be in charge.

Capricorn born during the Year of the Tiger...

Capricorns born during the Chinese Zodiac’s Year of the Tiger are represented in Primal Astrology by the Komodo Dragon. Komodo Dragons may be the least Capricorn-like of all Capricorns.

They have all of the tools to make their visions come to life as long as they can keep moving forward without self destructing.
