Capricorns may not be the most sociable people or the best communicators, but they sure are the most fun to be around. They can plan a party with incredible detail and delight. More doers than talkers, they prefer to show their affection and appreciation through small acts, the kind you find impossible to ignore.
They are very responsible and ambitious friends, and it shows in the way they approach professional tasks. They can even isolate themselves completely while taking care of business, and they never become drowsy or lazy. However, when they can take time off and relax, you can be sure that they are a lot of fun and cheerful.
1) Their friendships run deep and are based on similar ideas, goals and aspirations.
2) Trends come and go, but this type of friend will always remain.
3) They take friendships to a new level, as they are extremely kind, loyal and devoted.
4) They never forget important dates and events in their friends' lives.
5) They are fun, entertaining, love to tell stories and, most importantly, are incredibly affectionate.
They are very possessive of their friends, which means that they expect everyone to appreciate and reciprocate their efforts.
Nothing goes unrewarded, as this is their basic principle in life, both in their own case and in relationships. Moreover, as they prefer to do things rather than declare them, this attitude is even more evident.
They can be perfectionists, doing everything with a precise goal, of which they are very proud. Failures and failures should be taken as experiences, formative bodies of knowledge which, in theory, should further hone their skills.
Moreover, they seem to have no problem performing under pressure. Discipline, self-awareness and self-control are taken to a whole new level with Capricorns.
One thing worth admiring about Capricorns is that they aspire to a deeper relationship, based on similar ideas, goals and aspirations. They are not shallow or ignorant. For example, they are their own people when it comes to fashion.
Trends come and go, but people remain. Their own tastes are based on personal elegance and charm, a modesty and natural grace that far outweigh what others achieve by tricks of beautification. They can also be very competitive and quite dangerous in this respect, so do so with care.
They can be very observant and knowledgeable about how humans act, their inner motivations and desires.
This helps them a lot to pick out the bad people, those who want nothing more than to fulfil their selfish aspirations. Don't even think of going unnoticed by them, because they will catch you.
However, they should not go so far as to use the same methods when dealing with enemies. One should never stoop or lower oneself to fight monsters. As Nietzsche once said, if you stare too long into the abyss, the abyss stares back at you.
If there is one thing Capricorns are not good at, it is being spontaneous and acting on impulse. If anything, they are the opposite, planning and strategic.
They hate having to step out of their comfort zone and face unforeseen and unpredictable situations. This causes them to miss opportunities and to lose on some fronts.
They take friendships to a new level, as they are extremely kind, loyal and devoted. They never forget important dates and events in their friends' lives. They are fun, entertaining, love to tell stories and, most importantly, are incredibly affectionate.
No one can beat them in this game. It is played on their turf, i.e. on the battlefield of interpersonal relationships. Moreover, they encourage their friends to be better, to try harder, to be superior, and they try to correct flaws where they see them.
Guess who fits perfectly with the Capricorn as a friend? We're talking about an earth sign, with a very stubborn attitude and an in-your-face personality. That's right, it's the Taurus.
These two will form a good partnership, based on mutual understanding, kindness and generosity, but also on narrow ideas with which they might struggle.
They laugh every time they meet, whether they end up at loggerheads over their different opinions or end up doing the same things. Common interests are what bring them together, and they are both forgiving and understanding.
You must be prepared to go to great lengths to enter Capricorn's inner circle. They are very observant and analytical, and will want to judge your moral character before befriending you. This takes some time, so be patient and wait for the green signal.
You can speed up this process by inviting them to a social event, trying to gain their trust and introducing yourself in the best possible way. Invite them for a walk, for example, which is what they like best.
A word of warning before we go on: don't forget important dates, their birthday or the moment when they finally get that pay rise they've been waiting for.
These little things matter a lot to them, so be there to celebrate with them. Also, don't just brush it off without saying anything. They'll be worried and, in general, they'll like to know what's going on.
If you can't meet them face to face, send them a text message or call them saying that you can't be there or that you are going away for a while. Remember that although they may not seem like the most sentimental and sensitive people in the world, they are, in fact, very emotional.
Last but not least, they are devoted. This cannot be overstated. They will fight on your side against the whole world if necessary. They will savagely attack the status quo if it goes against you, and nothing can stop them from having your back.
They know everything about you and they never forget. How can you call this anything other than genuine interest and affection? Moreover, they are the ones who notice your pros and cons, who praise you and make you feel better when everything seems hopeless.
Capricorns also act as a form of inspiration, a drive to reach new heights of success. Stay close to them and benefit from the inexhaustible energy that covers you.
