Things to Look out for with Capricorn
As it is Capricorn's duty in life to prove their self-worth they can be very controlling with others.

Often their sense of self value iis based on their material success and financial security, and when this is at risk they can become emotionally insecure. While this is confusing for them – it is an opportunity to reassess their personal values and discern between the inauthentic and genuine, and what is transient and what is eternal. Once they reassess – they will ‘reawaken’ with a new set of rules and values, which will overcome their residual sadness and carry a new outlook on life, and ability for forward planning.
