Each Star Sign of the Zodiac can be divided into three subsections called Decans.
Each Decan roughly corresponds to 10 degrees or 10 days of the Star Signs time period. Decans can provide a more detailed account of an individual's personality traits and character and reveal how people born under the same Star sign can be very different.
The Capricorn personality can differ according to which one of the Capricorn Decans an individual is born under:
This is the first of the Capricorn Decans and is ruled by the planet Saturn.
The first Decan Capricorn personality is characterised by patience, determination and hard work.
Capricorns are always hard working but this applies even more so to the first of the Capricorn Decans. You also have the determination, strength and will to complete any worthwhile project.
You have tremendous patience but this is tested by 'airy fairy' people who have their head in the clouds and have fanciful ideas. This is because you cannot relate to them as you are well grounded with your feet firmly on the ground. You like to get the job done, rather than dreaming about it.
You are extremely loyal and devoted to those you love and will strive to provide material wealth and security for them. Material wealth is important to you as it firstly shows others how successful you are and thus commands their respect. You value the respect from others, rather than their affection or love. Material wealth also allows you to spoil those you hold dear.
You have the potential to be in careers that allow you to be very successful and powerful. You can be very competitive in the workplace and with your dogged determination will never lose sight of the prize.
The main flaw in this first Decan Capricorn personality are that you can be the victim of low moods, depression or mood swings.
This is the second of the Capricorn Decans and is ruled by the planet Venus.
The second Decan Capricorn personality is characterised by charm, creativity and adaptable.
Of all the Capricorn Decans you are by far the most charming and sociable. You collect a lot of good friends throughout your life, as they like your company.
Your creative skills are many and you can create great success for yourself by using them wisely. Your relentless ambition combined with your hard work will allow you to climb to very top of any profession you choose – so long as it uses your creativity.
You take the view that if a job is worth doing, it's worth doing well. This applies not just to your career path but also to your friendships and love relationships. You cultivate and maintain your relationships with 100% loyalty, attention and affection.
The main flaw in this second Decan Capricorn personality is pessimism. Your pessimistic streak can sometimes overtake you and can lead to low moods.
This is the third of the Capricorn Decans and is ruled by the planet Mercury.
The third Decan Capricorn personality is characterised by intelligence, loyalty and discipline.
You like your world to be ordered, structured and disciplined. You have little time for fanciful notions and abstract concepts. Although you do enjoy the finer things in life and admire beautiful things, you need them to have a practical and functional use as well.
Of all the Capricorn Decans you are the most intelligent and if you are able to override your innate shyness can become a gifted communicator.
Your intelligence coupled with your desire to accomplish makes you ideally suited to careers that demand shrewdness and attention to detail. The Legal profession, law enforcement and teaching are all areas that you can excel in.
You are tremendously loyal and faithful in all your relationships. Once you have placed your trust in someone and allowed them into your life you will fully commit to them.
The main flaw in this third Decan Capricorn personality is a tendency to dwell on the past and hold grudges.
