They understand the depth of traditions, cultures and the values they tend to hold. They also have a great sense of acquired social position and status in the society.

Self Sufficient

As Capricorn Ascendants, while the world relies on other people for happiness, they are content and self-sufficient. They only establish bonds based on rationale and terms acceptable to them and not just for the sake of change, learning or emotional dependency. For Capricorn Ascendants, it is of great value to be content and satisfied with themselves.

Trust Issues

While the Capricorn Ascendants feel too responsible for everything, they just safely presume responsibility because of their lack of trust on everyone else. They assume that others would not be as good in the work as they are and this lack of trust risks their relationships.


Health wise, Capricorn ascendants generally suffer from diseases that are air borne. They don’t fall sick easily, but if they do, they are prone to issues concerning the joints, teeth, hair, skin and nervous system.


Capricorn Ascendants have high ambitions and don’t let any distractions come in their way to attaining the set high ambitions. They are too focused on their professional growth and leadership prowess; they seldom miss out on the small blessings of life.

Love Life

Capricorn Ascendants are more realistic than romantic and an equally logical and realistic partner would be best for them. Displaying love is not their best front and while they do take time to get in a trusting relationship, when they do, they are really into it.


Capricorn Ascendants value tangibility over and above emotions. Achievement of goals, winning trophies and living a life full of medals and accolades is paramount to them. They would prefer material gains over lasting human bonds. They don’t open up easily with people and savor their emotions for moments of pride on accomplishments. For them, prestige and goal achievement is a true judge of their personal success. As Capricorn Ascendants are ruled by Planet Saturn, it is hard for them to trust others. They have less trust in the abilities of other people and therefore assume more and more responsibility themselves only. They have high ambitions and they are self sufficient. The reservation in their nature is sometimes misconstrued as snobbery, but they do not have time and interest in justifying their stand to others. They are content individuals and there is no zodiac as goal oriented as they are. They are born achievers.
