Capricorn Rising  people are reluctant to reveal their inner and emotional lives to others for fear of being considered weak. They show that they are willing to do what it takes to get the job done, demanding the same effort from others. They are extremely career and goal-oriented, and work conscientiously towards the success of their ventures. They are the most ambitious of all the Ascendants, and very traditional at heart.  

Law and order are essential to them. For them, adhering to the societal norms that regulate and structure social life, allows for peaceful and harmonious coexistence with others. They don't like spontaneity or coincidences, because they must carefully consider and plan everything. They often put their own needs on the back burner. They also tend to reject the individual expression of their personality and ideas.


Professionally, Capricorn Ascendant people are often successful. Their measured and dutiful approach places them in responsible positions at work , and their strong sense of community helps them do an excellent job as part of a team. Structure and order is everything to them, and they are brilliant at it!
Capricorns are ruled by Saturn, the planet constricted by rings. In Greek mythology, Saturn is Cronus , the great Titan. He is the stern father to many of the great gods, including Zeus. He has a father energy that comes with discipline.  

Capricorn Ascendant Motto and Looks

A Capricorn Ascendant must reach all their goals. They have so much ambition, that if they fail, they will just wipe the dust off their pants/skirts, learn from their mistakes, try harder, and win! They are extremely hard workers. Their motto is "What I work hard for I will achieve!"

They are naturally very tall , with the males often being over 1,83m or 6 feet tall. They can have sharp features to their face which makes them look seriously. They are often dressed very structurally with outfits that fit into society, whether it is religious, or business wear. The "power suit" was made for them.
