Do you have a beloved hard-working Capricorn in your life whose birthday is coming up? Here you will find more about Capricorn personality and how to make their birthday celebration special, Capricorn style.


Capricorns are the most determined out of all zodiac signs. They steamroll through obstacles that fall in their way. Capricorn is the tenth astrological sign in the Zodiac, which spans the period between December 21 and January 20. Its symbol is Capricornus, a mythical creature which is half goat, half fish. 

They are disciplined and organised, and they like to work hard. They prefer to do things in a particular order and don’t like to be in disarray. They understand why we are here in the world, and because of this, they know what they want in life. It is not easy for them to let go of any dreams or desires. 

In terms of their relationships, Capricorns are traditionalists who value family greatly. They can be very controlling of their partners. In order for someone to be accepted by a Capricorn, the person has to be able to stand up for themselves and not allow to be controlled by anyone else. They enjoy being with people who have a similar point of view about life, but it is important that they also get along with others who have a different outlook on life.

Capricorn will grow up being responsible for taking care of others from an early age. They often find themselves taking care of others financially later on in life as well. However, there is a thin line between responsible and controlling, so it is important for them to realise when they have enough.

In the sky

Although a faint constellation, it has one of the oldest mythological associations, dating back to the Middle Bronze Ages, when Babilonians used it to represent the Sumerian god Enki, later known as Ea. Enki was one of the Anunnaki Gods. He was a god of creation, intelligence, crafts, water, seawater, lakewater, fertility, semen, magic and mischief. 

Capricornus means “the goat” in Latin and the constellation represents a sea goat, which was the symbolism used for the Sumertain god Enki. 

In Greek mythology, the Capricornus constellation is represented by the forest deity Pan, a half man, half goat creature who has saved Zeus and other gods from losing battles with monsters.

The faint, but distinctive star pattern of Capricornus resembles a goat’s head and neck. The constellation is one of the oldest recognized constellations and spans a large area of sky between Aquila, Sagittarius and Pisces.


Delta Capricorni is the brightest point of light in Capricornus. It is a multiple star system with an apparent magnitude of 2.81, located at a distance of 38.70 light years from Earth. The star is a fast spinner, with a projected rotational velocity of 105 km/s.
