What are people born with Capricorn rising like?
Capricorn rising is a real mixture of intense intelligence and self-doubt. These natives suffer from a lack of confidence in their abilities despite their apparent talents. Saturn rules this sign and has a strong influence when it comes to all things personality. Ambition is strong, and these folks really dream of going places. Responsible, sensible, ambitious and sensual are the best adjectives to best describe them.
The Capricorn ascendant tends to be dark in both appearance and spirit. Their moral code is based on the principle of respect. They work hard, are highly motivated and persevere in the pursuit of their goals, so their efforts are often successful. The more difficult the task, the more determined they are to accomplish it. They make very effective leaders and are usually gifted with the ability to translate their ideas into action.
Capricorn as an ascendant tends to be introspective. It is a strong sign that has an enormous influence on the other signs, thus, associated with a Fire sign (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius), it tends to restrict instinct and impulsiveness. However, there is nothing negative in itself, since it allows us to put these bubbling energies at the service of the construction and consolidation of our projects or our objectives. In relation to an Earth sign (Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn), it is all the values of the earth that will be valued. Thus, we will be more objective, more rational, more protective, more resistant, or determined. With an Air sign (Gemini, Libra, Aquarius), our communication will be more thoughtful and less spontaneous. Our minds will be practical and less playful. On the other hand, our curiosity and our taste for learning will be increased tenfold. When associated with a Water sign (Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces), it will allow the control of our emotions, of our feelings. It will invite us to go towards stability and to build a family (in many areas).
