Motivated by the force of success, wealth, status, Capricorns are supremely ambitious. You are self-sufficient, relying on yourself to get the things you want. A fierce understanding of time makes you very organized and also gives you great patience.
You are responsible and practical, but most of all, determined. As long as there is opportunity, you will be after it. You are cautious and conservative with money, but later in life you will be able to enjoy the fruits of your labor. A project never begins for a Capricorn without a plan, but after that you will not stop until it is finished.
Others may see you as cold and unapproachable, but that is mainly the result of self-sufficiency. In relationships, you must be in control and are always testing the other's loyalty without them knowing about it. And because you keep everything to yourself, people will find it difficult to get to know the real you. Once they do, however, fierce loyalty and true affection will be their reward.
If you're looking for a gift for a Capricorn, you're going to have to remember that these individuals are often motivated by wealth and status as well as being highly organized. Special colors for the average Capricorn are dark green and brown — hues that comfort and remind us of nature.
People born under the sign of Capricorn often times rely on themselves to get the job down. Highly attuned to the essence of time, they are very patient with themselves and others — using time to get their goals accomplished.
In addition, Capricorn personalities are fiercely loyal to their close friends, although they like to be in control of a relationship.
