Capricorn Ascendant (Everything you need to know)

Saturn, ruler of your Capricorn ascendant, endows you with a particularly impressive skill: you can see the philosophical dimensions of things while you also desire to act alone.

Capricorn Rising Sign: The Ascendant in Capricorn and its meaning

Reality has many sides for you and you feel the need to try and experience it in its every aspect – and in the way that you wish not in the way others have told you to, so that the responsibility and consequences are all yours.
The influence of Saturn gives you a melancholy air, which often affects the way you think. You base your ideas for a better order of things on the respect that everyone should have for each other, so that mutual support can succeed. You are a sociable person but, deep down, want everyone to adopt your views and act in accordance with your ideas.
Your inherent cautiousness, in combination with your preference for being alone and to not say much, gives those around you the impression that they do not interest you at all or that you are a snob – and this is not true at all. You have a great aptitude to focusing on your goals and this is why, over the years, you will enjoy the fruit of your labours.
Your skill in putting your ideas to use and guiding people is remarkable. You are much more satisfied when you have the opportunity to lead a situation or a group of people, especially when you are fully responsible for carrying out and achieving difficult goals.
Strength for you means that you can reach your goals. You are not interested in how people judge your skills, since your biggest critic is yourself. There are two sides to every coin, however, and, deep down, you are a very sensitive person. You care about how other people judge your principles. You don’t like to break rules and so people think you are strict.
You are direct, condemn betrayal and deceit of every kind and are considered unbending and conservative. You distance yourself forever from those who undermine your trust. You have a sense of humour but don’t open up in strange environments and don’t express your feelings easily. Only in a familiar environment can you relax and show your true self.

Capricorn Ascendant personality traits

If your Rising sign is Capricorn, its ruling planet is Saturn. Your main aspiration in life is to explore all facets of reality, and to do so on your own terms. Your approach to the world combines the philosophical with the personal/individualistic.  You choose to experience reality your own way and not in the way other people feel you should. As a result, you tend to perceive the world around in a unique way, bearing all responsibility and consequence.

Capricorn Ascendant people tend to be somber both in appearance and in spirit. Their moral code is founded on the principle of respect. They are hard-working, highly motivated and persevering in the pursuit of their goals, so their efforts are often met with great success. The more challenging the task, the stronger their determination to accomplish it. They make very effective leaders, and are usually endowed with the ability to translate their ideas into action.

As a Capricorn Ascendant person, you often expect other people to embrace your own perspective on things and to adjust their actions accordingly. You are reserved, reticent and reluctant to express your emotions. You only let your guard down when in the company of people you feel close to and comfortable with. You also tend to be a loner, so you often come across as pretentious and arrogant, without really being so.
Your tendency to conform to the established order of things makes you come off as stern, rigid and inflexible. Underneath the surface, though, you are extremely sensitive. You are your own harshest critic, straightforward and intolerant of dishonesty in any form; when someone turns out to be unworthy of your trust, you sever all ties with them.

Capricorn Ascendant Man

Capricorn Ascendant men are intelligent, ambitious and determined to succeed. They are driven by the desire to acquire wealth, along with the power, privilege and independence this confers. They pursue their goals relentlessly and will go to great – even unsavory – lengths to accomplish them. At the same time, they are outgoing and highly reliable. When it comes to romance, they need a partner who is laid back enough to offset their own uptightness and capable of helping them unlock their feelings. When they get involved with a woman of a lesser social status, they expect her to try to become their equal. When they find a woman they want to spend the rest of their life with, they are loyal and devoted to her. They can be surprisingly adventurous in bed.

Capricorn Ascendant Woman

Like Capricorn Ascendant men, Capricorn Ascendant women are hard-working, determined to achieve their goals and primarily concerned with making money. They place a high value on financial security and expect their partners to be as self-reliant as they are. They need time before they can enter a committed relationship. They avoid men who are superficial, capricious or fickle in their emotions. They project an image of utter composure and often appear as emotionally detached, but seethe with insecurity underneath. Unless they have a strong Scorpio influence in their astrology chart, they are timid and reserved in bed.
