Capricorn is the goat of the zodiac and they are born December 21st to January 19th. This is an approximation because of the irregular rotation of the earth and therefore not every year will Capricorn begin exactly on the 21st or even end on the 19th.
When I think of Capricorn what comes to mind is one of the most stable and (mostly) serious signs of the zodiac. You are normally self-confident, strong willed and calm. You are often hardworking, unemotional, practical, responsible, persevering, and cautious and capable of persisting for as long as is necessary to accomplish a goal they have set for yourselves. You are reliable workers in almost any profession you undertake. You are the major finishers of most projects started by the others and you quickly become the backbone of any company that you work for rising to the top.
The key phrase for you is “I use” and many people misconstrue this to mean that of a user and the social climber. But, in defense of the Capricorn, I use means you are the experts at using whatever available resources are at hand and making use of them. In other words, like Martha Stewart, they can see that a discarded egg carton, large tin can, excess carpet pieces, whatever, that can be utilized towards more efficient, and useful productivity. And so, this “I use” talent works incredibly well from running a business to figuring out how to feed and clothe 5 kids on a very limited budget.
