Faithful, idealistic, and resourceful, those born under the Zodiac sign of Dog Capricorn are ambitious individuals who always want to do the right thing. A combination of the Western Zodiac sign of Capricorn and the Eastern Zodiac sign of Dog, members of this sign strive for personal success within the boundaries of their own moral and ethical codes.
Dog Capricorns are often traditional and avoid trying new things until they have done their own research. New ideas, techniques, and social roles have to be put to the test before they are accepted as valid. Some believe that Dog Capricorns are anxious, paranoid, and distrusting, and indeed they do take quite a bit of caution before partaking in any unusual affairs. It is this quality that often stands out to others, especially those who are more carefree.
To a Dog Capricorn, being right is more important than being adventurous. While they are willing to walk the longest journeys in order to achieve their goals, they also want to know that the long path is worth walking. To put it another way, Dog Capricorns always look before they leap. It’s not just for their own safety and well-being, but also for those who they care for. Members of this sign are often admired by their communities and worry that their actions could have a negative impact upon others. Dog Capricorns are also proud individuals who don’t want to be seen making a mistake. While this personality trait is often advantageous, it can also create a great deal of anxiety, making it difficult for Dog Capricorns to make decisions in a timely manner.
Members of this sign tend to be very black or white, right or wrong. The ever faithful Dog is likely to get lost in Capricorn’s ambition, thinking he or she is doing the right thing when in reality they are taking it too far. Unfortunately, neither Capricorn nor Dog are good at knowing when to stop. The more success they achieve the less likely they are to listen to others, especially if they truly believe that what they are doing is “good” or “right”. It will be the best intentions that can be the most dangerous in a Dog Capricorn’s hands.
Dog Capricorn Traits
You’re as severe toward yourself as toward others, for you’ve principles and intend to apply them strictly. But this sternness of character is more apparent than real. Indeed, your comportment is in actuality only a translation of your fears, anguishes, of your great difficulty to feel at peace with yourself, to love yourself.
Your natural severity can sometimes be intensified by the bereavements or ordeals undergone in your youth. Later on, you could be confronted with crushing loneliness, which might provoke health troubles or escapes toward artificial paradises such as alcohol, tobacco, or drugs. But you can also choose the path of wisdom and accept your condition in a detached and serene manner.
You only aspire to be at the summit and generally reach it, for you possess brilliant social and political qualities and unfailing perseverance. You know slow and constant material increase after difficult beginnings. Very cautious in your expenses, you can gather a good fortune; but you can hardly profit by your wealth for you will always remain severe and hardworking.
You’re very mistrustful in love. You intend to control your emotions and prefer imposing yourself and making yourself appreciated. When you attach yourself, you show unshakable faithfulness; but one should not deceive you, for you’ll not forgive and can accumulate resentments and rancors with gloomy satisfaction.
