Capricorn is a cardinal water sign ruled by Saturn. It’s one of the most practical signs, and usually people with this sun sign are productive, responsible, and serious about their goals. It’s a very eye on the prize type of season, especially since it occurs at the end of the year and the beginning of a new one. Capricorn is the go-getter who focuses on how to make exciting dreams come true. Capricorns are adept at getting down to work, making real, solid plans, and getting the ball rolling.

Saturn, the planet of rules and structure, rules Capricorn. Saturn usually brings about hard lessons... like really hard. Most Capricorns are well-versed in overcoming major challenges--these challenges help shape who they are, and they then become shepherds for others who experience the same struggles.

Nothing good comes easily or without hard work. It always requires willpower, patience, and determination to get where you are going. And that is why Capricorns are one of the strongest signs.
