Capricorn is the tenth sign of the Zodiac. It is a distinguished yet earthy sign and a sign of giving.

You are a perfectionist in all you do; you are ambitious and idealistic, and you are blessed with good looks.

Saving is one of your strongest points, so much so that quite often you may be accused of being miserly.

Your thoughts and views are extremely profound. Your out­ward appearance of being modest and shy, hides the fact that you are very determined. Once you have made up your mind your perseverance is terrific.

Where work is concerned you will go to any lengths to be really efficient and you never rush any task which you have on hand. Indeed, you are virtually impossible to hurry.

You are not conceited, proud or selfish. You are a friendly person and you prefer to mind your own business rather than meddle in the affairs of others.

There are, however, two opposite types born under Cap­ricorn. The first are those who like to become leaders and guides to others around them; the second are those who like to make rather a show of their jobs (much more than is strictly necessary) and like to be known as steady workers.

If you were born between December 22nd and 31st, you can at times be rather fickle. This is due to your indecisiveness and because you do not have the staying-power to put your ideas into action because you go on to something new before completing your plans, and thus your fortune tends to fluctuate.

If you were born between January 1st and 10th, you are, with little doubt, very obstinate. If someone says that ‘blue is blue’, you will quite often argue that it is ‘pink’. You are a steady worker, but unhappily you do not possess as much energy as you need. On the whole, your group is the most likeable of the Capricorn types.

If you were born between January 11th and 20th, you are a modest type, invariably gifted with very good brains plus a friendly personality. You are the type who become leaders, and nine times out of ten, improve your status of living by your own determination and ambition. The only weakness you have is that you occasionally fail to see opportunities which he right under your nose.

You would make a good builder, air hostess, agricultural worker, engineer, mechanic, or, occasionally, consultant banker.

You are usually wiry and strong. Your health is good and normally improves with age. It is difficult to pinpoint any one real element which seriously bothers you because you seem to go under only when you are depressed, which happens quite often.

Partnerships/Marriage: you never rush into these. You are best suited to the Virgo type or to the Taurus type. You are likely to meet with very little success indeed if you team up with a Leo or a Gemini or a Sagittarius type .

If you choose a Virgo subject, you can expect your partner to be most generous-hearted, although, at times, given to depression. At other times there will be great happiness, for Virgo subjects are inclined to go up and down rather like a yo-yo. When ‘down’ they are best left alone and not questioned, tor the mood is nearly always short-lived.

If you choose a Taurus subject you can expect to make a good, solid partnership, for a Taurus subject is a very dependable type. It is no good trying to deceive Taurus subjects for they will always find you out in the end, and be careful, too, not to anger them, as once their tempers are roused there is no stopping them.
