Hey guys, welcome back to TNTH!
Today is December 21st, which means it’s the official first day of winter and Capricorn season begins!
Uh, Liz, so what?
It’s Capricorn season, which means that it’s my season. My birthday is on January 9th, which means that my zodiac sign is Capricorn. Now, I’m not one of those people who read their horoscope every single day and believe that shit is a fortune teller or something. I occasionally read them for fun and yeah, there are times when I’m like “wow, this is currently my life to a tee”, but I do have an open mind about them, and it’s just something that was assigned to you because of your birthday.
When it comes to Capricorn personality traits, though, I feel like I am a legit Capricorn to heart. Capricorns are notoriously the most serious sign out of the zodiacs. They are the workaholics of the signs and I honestly feel like as I get older, I see just how hardworking I’ve become. I’m always working on something whether it’s for school, my personal life, and TNTH. As much as I say I’m too overworked and burnt out, I know that without it, I wouldn’t know what to do with myself.
Some other positive Capricorn traits are that we are typically very helpful, ambitious, determined and loyal. Although we focus in on our work and the things that have to get done, we still are able to be there for those around us when they need us the most, and I’m definitely that type of person. As much as I focus in on my workload, I make time for those around me, especially my family and my partner because it’s always important to come back and take a break from your individual busy lives. We may be one of the more “boring” signs out of the bunch (which is true to an extent; we don’t stand out that much), we are still very chill people to be around.
Some negative traits that Capricorns have are that we appear to be very shy, which I can say that’s completely me. No matter how hard I try to open up and express myself, I still become extremely shy and awkward, which is also another Capricorn trait. We’re awkward because we don’t do well in social situations. We’re the type of people who go to parties because our friends invite us and we have a miserable time there because our friend is off somewhere partying with everyone else and you’re sitting at the table in the corner of the room. I remember going to a quinceanera with a couple of my middle school friends and I was practically at the table all night. Because we don’t know how to socialize right, we appear to be self-centered, which I can say this is me at times. I forget that those around me have feelings as well and that my feelings are just one side of the story. I occasionally get into arguments because I tend to not take into consideration for other people’s feelings, and I try my hardest to not let that happen. But it does, and it sucks.
When it comes to compatibility with other signs, I find myself not fitting into that aspect because I feel like I get along with everyone in every sign, but I do find myself looking back at all the best friends I had in my years and most of them were Taurus (which is the most compatible sign of friendship for Capricorns). My college best friend is a Virgo which I never knew were friendship compatible because I never had a friend that was a Virgo, so it’s crazy to see just how different we are as people, yet are still really good friends.
It’s funny to see that Capricorns and Gemini’s are like the sun and moon. Geminis are literally the sun, and Capricorns are the moon. My partner is a Gemini at heart. I’ve encountered a lot of Geminis in my day and you can just tell that they are Geminis. Capricorns and Geminis clash a lot; Geminis are the life of the party, sociable, and are constantly on the moveCapricornsns are quiet, antisocial, and have to plan things before they move. They do say opposites attract, so maybe that’s the reason we work out, but we do have our moments and we do have our miscommunications.
Typically, signs get along with their own signs because they’re literally the same. Me? I really dislike people who are Capricorns. When Capricorns interact with other Capricorns, they usually have to be “the better, smarter person”. I’m constantly looking at other Capricorns like ugh they think they’re the shit, they are smartasses, they think the world revolves around them, etc. Whenever I do that, I tend to have to look at myself like, “do I appear this way to people? Am I like this?”
Something special that is happening this Capricorn season is that the first time in three decades is that Saturn is going to be in Capricorn, and Saturn is our ruling planet. This means that Capricorns are going to have a positive, life-changing experience that helps us grow and strive in the long run. As great as that sounds, I really hope that this Capricorn season treats me good. I mean, this time of year is usually a good one for me, but if it actually helps me blossom and be the person I’m working towards, then so be it.
Happy birthday, Capricorns!
