All About Capricorn Rising And What It Adds To Your Personality

Last updated by Susan Taylor

Having Capricorn rising in your birth chart is a stroke of luck because it combines wisdom with youthful appearance. If this is your case, you play by the rules but have fun doing so. This aspect helps you develop a calmer approach to life and gives you the patience you need to analyze situations objectively. If this is your ascendant, your ruling planet is Saturn, and your main aspiration in life is to explore all facets of reality on your own terms. As a result, you tend to perceive the world around you uniquely, bearing all responsibility and consequences. Discover Susan Taylor's interpretation on this component.

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).

What this ascendant adds to your daily life

Capricorn rising teaches you to be consistent and most importantly, patient. You know that it is better to move forward slowly but surely than to throw yourself in all directions. Little by little, with strength, courage and determination, you climb the ladder to success one step at a time. There is no question of putting the cart before the horse, you like to take your time and do things well, in order. Your great sense of duty mixed with your ambition allows you very often to find yourself in key positions. With this aspect in your natal chart, you'll lead a life of wisdom, duty, but also of great success.

The associated strengths and weaknesses

On the positive side, a Capricorn ascendant is an excellent catalyst. It calms the ardor of certain personalities that are too explosive, such as the Fire signs. It calms the spirits and transforms these explosive energies into perennial forces. Under its influence, one thinks of the long term and avoids making hasty decisions. It also helps the most sensitive among us to better channel their emotions and to take a step back. On the negative side, Capricorn could make you somewhat bitter if results aren't up to par. The more pessimistic among you will feel that they deserved better... 

The influence of Capricorn rising on your love life:

Capricorn rising acts as an anchor for your romantic feelings. It drives your desire to build a lasting relationship and even start a family. Your traditional values mean that marriage and a strong family unit are very important factors for you. When you are dating, you can be a little picky, however, when someone wins your trust, then you dive straight to it. You're not exactly naturally romantic, but will make the efforts required to make your partner feel good about themselves.
