Capricorn is Cardinal Earth
Capricorn is Cardinal Earth. As the active component of the Earth signs, Capricorn is ambitious, pragmatic, and organized. He doesn't take much on faith ... or go by "feelings." He wants solid proof that what he's doing is practical and what he's building is something of enduring worth. He aims for tangible results in return for his efforts.
He appreciates things he can touch ... and count. Like money, real estate, corporate empires, etc. He's methodical, grounded, sensible, disciplined. He is very much a creature of the physical world. He believes in being realistic, economical, acquisitive, and trading in commodities of discernible value.
