Capricorn zodiac sign

Capricorn is the tenth sign of the zodiac and is the sign of people born between December 22 and January 19.

Your sign is represented by the horned sea-goat, Capricornus, which has the tail of a fish and a goat’s body. This makes it easy for you to navigate both the emotional and pragmatic realms.

You are hardworking, stoic, ambitious, and very determined. Also, you don’t mind spending hours at the office and tend to have a business-like attitude to everything.

Capricorn is a moveable earth sign which maybe explains why you are realistic, far from unfounded dreams. You expect the worst, which makes you come across as pessimistic.

Simultaneously, you are practical, making it easy to accomplish goals you set your heart to.

The ruling planet of Capricorn is Saturn, a symbol that represents restraint and restriction. Its influence explains why you sometimes hold people to a high standard and come across as stiff, condescending, and overly critical.

Your zodiac sign vibes with earthy neutral colors, and charcoal gray is one of the best zodiac colors for you.

Capricorn rules organs like the knees, joints, and hair.

The color of Capricorn is charcoal gray, a color of sophistication according to the meanings of the colors. Your lucky color communicates strength and maturity and helps enhance your reliability and practicality.

Dark gray is also strong, strict, and conventional, which pretty much sums up your Capricorn traits.

Also, a conservative sign like yours will feel more comfortable in neutral and muted colors instead of the bright, wild colors.

If you have an interview, a date, or are about to bid for a contract, enhance your energies by wearing a gray suit, heels, or purse. Adding your Capricorn color scheme to your outfit is the good luck charm you need.

Charcoal gray interiors are also getting popular, and now is the best time to get into this trend as a Capricornian who wants to attract luck.

Your zodiac color palette is also made up of dark shades of blue, like navy blue, dark brown, black—these deep colors are perfect for Capricorn.

Colors you should avoid

As a Capricorn, it’s best to stay away from pastel shades or light colors like pink, yellow, red, and purple.

Pink is a delicate color that can stir up physical weakness. The color also represents a lack of self-worth and self-reliance, which will dampen your energies as a Capricorn.

Also, pink is associated with inexperience and an unwillingness to take matters seriously, which is opposite to your workaholic and responsible soul.

Red, because your zodiac sign already comes across as too serious and stubborn, and red will only empower these traits by portraying aggression and anger.

Yellow is the color of cheerfulness and makes people more critical, which may shoot up your pessimism, fear, and anxiety.

Purple is commonly associated with imagination, magic, and illusions, which explains why it’s often seen in magic shows and fairy tales.

It is also the color of spirituality. As a practical person grounded in reality, purple may make your mind wander, causing distraction.

These are the worst colors for someone with strong personality traits. Your down-to-earth spirit requires bolder colors to fulfill your powerful energy.

If your Sun sign description doesn't resonate with how you feel, you need to look up your Full chart on You may have a weak sun and strong moon and/or rising sign. With Saturn on my Sun from birth, that was my case. Gemini and Pisces were how I felt and how others would describe me, despite a couple main characteristics of my Sagittarius sun, such as valuing truth and understanding the "Big Picture" over tip-toeing around feelings, needing my freedom, and loathing boredom!
