Throughout history, there have been many interesting Capricorn men. The tenth sign of the zodiac, Capricorn is represented by the goat, a sign of ambition (climbing to the highest peaks of the mountainside) and power.
About The Capricorn Male
Men born under the sign of Capricorn often have a mixed temperament. Sometimes, the Capricorn man will be jolly and without negativity. However, he may seem sullen and down on himself at other times. In fact, the Capricorn male will sometimes act so pessimistic that you would imagine the world was coming to an end!
However, a Capricorn male will often look to the sky. Ambitious to a fault, Capricorn men strive for success and are often dedicated to succeeding. When a Capricorn man sets his mind on a goal, he may seem stubborn about completing it. Men under this sign desire stability and, as a result, enjoy having a goal to strive towards. Capricorn men seem to have the ability to move mountains. Beware though; Capricorn men can sometimes spend all of their time moving mountains and neglect other aspects of life such as love.
Capricorns also have numerous passions. They will spend a period of time dedicated to one activity, succeed, and then move on to another area. This split focus allows Capricorn men to accomplish many different goals in their life.
