Capricorn you're the conservative, ambitious, punctual, practical, serious, inhibited and unemotional people who rule nations, corporations and courtrooms.

You use everything around you from material things to people. You're driven to achieve in your chosen career. You tend to be melancholy and do not smile easily.

You love the old and think in terms of long term outcomes.

Everything in life is an investment to you. Career comes first and marriage second. If you marry, it will be late in life or to someone older than you. You like to be challenged and then recognized for your accomplishments. You tend to be a loner and act superior but have a deep fear of failure.

You excel in corporate environments, politics and government. You could be a jailer, scientist, watchmaker, chiropractor, osteopath, miner, mathematician, orator, serious actor or school administrator.

Famous Capricorns include:
Benjamin Franklin, Elvis Presley, Kevin Costner,
Tiger Woods, Carolyn Kennedy, Martin Luther King,
Maureen Reagan, Janis Joplin, Cassius Clay,  Kit Carson,
Al Capone, Thomas Becket, Clara Barton, Joan Baez,
Albert Schweitzer, Loretta Young, Daniel Webster,
Paul Cezanne, Andrew Johnson, Joan of Arc, Howard Hughes,
J. Edgar Hoover, Alexander Hamilton, Barry Goldwater,
Kahlil Gibran, Edward Teller, A.A. Milne, Woodrow Wilson,
Conrad Hilton, Mao Zedong, Millard Fillmore,
Marlene Dietrich, Cicero & Robert E. Lee.

(Note: Pluto has just recently begun its transit through Capricorn, you will witness the transformation of many famous Capricorns as this planet activates each Sun directly. They will experience at least three passes of this planet on their Sun. You can note some of the experiences that Tiger Woods is going through, and then watch for the next two passes of this planet on his Sun. It is the planet of transformation and will bring to the surface issues of secrets, power, hidden affairs, intimacy, and shared resources. With each pass, Pluto requires the individual to own up to who they are and become who they truly want to become. A very interesting time to watch. This will also be true of many corporations and nations. I will be doing a blog on this and most likely a radio show. Contact me on facebook if you are interested in learning more.)
