If you were born between Dec 22 and Jan 20 your star sign is Capricorn, represented by the Sea Goat. Along with Taurus and Virgo, Capricorn is an Earth sign, meaning that they tend to be practical, direct, and well-grounded.
Capricorns are reliable and steadfast. They are the hardest workers of the zodiac and are usually driven, ambitious, tenacious and persistent. They are loyal and supportive of their loved ones, friends and family and tend to keep only small circles socially. Living well is important to Capricorns and they will work hard until they create the luxurious, comfortable lifestyle they want.
Capricorns can sometimes be relentless in their pursuit of what they feel they deserve, to the detriment of others. They can also be stubborn and inflexible if they feel that other people do not behave in ways of which they can approve. Capricorns often measure their success, and that of others, by the amount of money they make. This can sometimes lead Capricorns into becoming censorious and overly critical of co-workers or family members.
The dominant chakra for Capricorn is the Base or Root chakra, which governs our sense of stability, safety, and security in the material world. When this chakra is out of balance this can lead to feelings of restriction, or being “uptight,” and taking things far too seriously for your own well-being. On the other hand, when the energy is flowing freely and the Base chakra is clear, this leads to feeling well-balanced, grounded and content with all aspects of life.
The plants to which Capricorns may be drawn include the slow growing Jade plant. Capricorns are known for their practical, patient nature, making them ideal candidates for caring for a Jade plant.
Capricorns are also well suited to the discipline of maintaining a Bonsai tree. Caring for Bonsai is now seen as an art form in its own right, requiring self-discipline and an ability to follow strict rules and guidelines, all of which Capricorns have in spades!
Capricorns are naturally drawn to the rich colour and fire of Ruby. It is a valuable gem, which suits Capricorn’s materialistic side, but there is a lot more to the partnership of Ruby and Capricorn than that. Ruby improves motivation and the setting of realistic goals, which Capricorns are always happy to do. Ruby stimulates physical vigor and imparts an energetic zest for life, but never is a self-destructive way. Ruby is also a balancing stone that can help Capricorns to get in touch with their feelings and to be aware of their own needs.

Health and Self-Care
Capricorns need to take care of the Base chakra in particular. Although many Capricorns are naturally grounded and practical, there will be times when they are knocked off course, just like the rest of us. To a Capricorn, their material lives are of the utmost importance, and a blocked Base chakra can lead to feelings of fear and security about your place in the world and your financial security.
The physical area around the Base chakra can also be problematic for Capricorns and they need to take care of their lower back and hips. Problems with the large intestine and colon are also common in this sign so make sure that you take advantage of any testing offered.
