Capricorns get things done.

Symbolized by the mountain goat, Capricorns always look ahead. They are resilient and determine to succeed, no matter the challenge facing them. Simply put: There ain’t no mountain high enough to keep them from meeting their goals.

Capricorns are ruled by the paternal planet of authority—Saturn. The influence of Saturn can be seen in a Capricorn’s desire to take charge of any situation they come across. They feel at home heading a conference table, delegating tasks to their peers and mapping out strategies for long-term projects.

Traditionalists to a fault, these earth signs are stubborn about sticking to a plan that’s been proven to yield results. In their mind, “the road less traveled” likely comes with its own complications—littered with potholes or rigid, worn pavement. Why would anyone want to drive on a road like that?

Antique armoires, monogrammed linens and tufted headboards—these are just a few of the traditional touches you can find in a Capricorn home.

Unsurprisingly, these traditionalists have an appreciation for the finer things in life. Craftsman details, luxurious leather and one-of-a-kind finds are enough to enthrall any Capricorn. (No matter how pricey the piece might be.)

Being the hard workers they are, a Capricorn should (and will) invest in outfitting their home office. A luxurious leather armchair paired with a cherry wood desk will deliver our Caps with a handsome space that fosters their productivity.

Pistachios. Like we’ve said, Capricorns don’t shy away from a challenge. We have a feeling they won’t mind prying the tasty pistachio out of its salty shell.

With December and January birthdays, Capricorns offer their loved ones yet another reason for celebration during the festive holiday season. Take note, though: A tacky Christmas-sweater party will miss the mark for our classic Caps. Instead, throw them a chic dinner party at a well-known, refined restaurant in the city.
