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, order, and structure are essential to 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 to make sure their surroundings run in smooth order.


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 are 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. Cronus is also the god of time, and Capricorn ACs are always very time-conscious. Don't be late for appointments with Capricorn Risings. They will not appreciate it. 

Capricorn Ascendant Motto and Looks

A Capricorn Ascendant must reach all their goals. They have so much ambition that if they fail, they will 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 facial features, making them look serious. They are often dressed structurally with outfits that fit into society, whether religious or business wear. The "power suit" was made for them. They enjoy wearing earth colors, browns, greens, blues, black and white. 

Capricorn Ascendant Qualities - The Good

Capricorn Ascendants make exceptional friends. They will always be honest with you and are a true rock to lean on - they're just so stable. Their moods definitely don't change easily. You can usually trust them because gossip just isn't their thing. If you need to make an important and rational decision, it's best to ask your Capricorn AC friend.

Capricorn Ascendant Qualities - The Bad

They can be extremely judgmental and cold, showing little emotion . They also like to play power games at times because their need to be on top and in charge is so strong. 

Capricorn Descendant - Cancer


Since the Capricorn Ascendant has Cancer as a Descendant , they learn to live out their soulful side and put their own needs first. They will eventually notice that showing feelings and emotions is not disruptive to community life, but quite the contrary, they help achieve their desire for peace.

Their urge for distance from others will be less pronounced, and they will bring people closer. They are naturally attracted to the nurturing type , those who will be there for them after a long day of work and will help to raise the children when they are absent and busy making money to put enough "bread on the table."

Capricorn rules the 10th house of the father and career, while Cancer rules the 4th house of the mother and home. The Capricorn/Cancer AC/DC dynamic creates a personality that aligns with the mother/father principle of discipline and care.
