The combined astrological influences of Western Astrology’s Capricorn and the Chinese symbol of the Monkey make a harmonized personality. Capricorn’s are traditionally associated with the sign of the Goat. The mixture of a Goat and Monkey influenced personality is an odd combination but it works. The Capricorn Monkey is believed to be granted with a highly competent, adaptable and emotionally balanced character. These people are typical cool and determined Capricorn’s but they have the Monkey’s ingenuity and his little touch of his mischievous humor. This makes them a little more lively and relaxed than most Capricorns and as a rule more willing to mix with others and socialize.
Capricorn Monkey Traits
A Capricorn Monkey usually likes to do and say things properly and in order of priority. They will always tend to plan actions and words before they carry out movement or speech. This is automatic and unnoticeable and they are often rather good at controlling this. Careful planning helps the Capricorn Monkey personality to be very skilled in most tasks and they are especially competent with their hands. Their dexterity from the Monkey’s presence enables them to be capable of the most fiddly and complicated of tasks. They are inclined to seek out jobs that will make use of this skill. These people become bored quickly and welcome work that has a purpose and lots of variety.
The Capricorn Monkey is hardworking and diligent but he or she will always find time for their close family and friends. These particular Capricorn’s are usually quite family oriented and tend to not live far away from their parents and any siblings. They will work hard to build comfortable bases around those they love. Although more sociable than most Capricorns these individual’s do like their privateness. A Capricorn Monkey considers their home to be their retreat from the fast pace of modern day life. So they generally enjoy making it as comfy as possible. They are quite modern in their tastes preferring bright cheerful decor and practical but comfortable furniture.
Capricorn Monkey’s display the same degree of competence in personal relationships as they do with everything else in life. They prioritize them highly and take them seriously and will be devoted and emotionally supportive to partners. Within long term relationships is where a Capricorn Monkey relaxes best and his or her sense of humor may emerge. They find that many of the simple things in a couple’s daily routines are humorous. These characters also love sharing and can be extremely close and intimately involved with their other halves. They expect the same devotion from partners as they give.
Very high a standard can be the weak spot in the Capricorn Monkey Personality. As they are so competent themselves they sometimes anticipate that others will have equal ability. They are usually greatly disappointed when their anticipations are not realized. The Capricorn Monkey finds it difficult to lower standards to accommodate different people’s capabilities. To overcome their weakness they must learn to be a little more understanding and patient in some circumstances.
Capricorn Monkey Compatibility (Love & Friendship)
Unlike most Capricorns, Capricorn Monkeys are naturally outgoing. While Capricorn tames the wild antics of the Monkey in career and goals, there is still a great amount of energy that needs to be taken out via social means. Socializing is a great way to balance out the needs of both the conscious and the subconscious. Capricorn Monkeys are usually cheerful, optimistic, and very charming. As long as they can let go of their troubles and have a good time with friends they are almost always a highlight amongst their peer groups. Everyone loves a Capricorn Monkey and knows that they are always there when needed.
Capricorn Monkeys tend to be a bit more hesitant than one might expect when it comes to romantic relationships. They are strongly independent individuals who don’t need the approval of others as much as most other signs born during the Year of the Monkey do. As with everything else in their lives, relationships may begin spontaneously but will have to fall into the greater plan at some point. Because of this, few self-aware Capricorn Monkeys will settle down and marry before their peers. When they find the relationship they are looking for they will go all-in, giving of themselves completely in order to integrate their partner into their life plans. Those who have yet to find their perfect mate may be considerably more picky and flighty in relationships.
Capricorn Monkey Business (Career & Goals)
Careers and other goals are of tremendous importance to Capricorn Monkeys. This area is where they have the opportunity to truly showcase their talents, and a great deal of their self-esteem comes through their accomplishments. Members of this sign are likely to play up to their natural talents and inner inclinations, but can be persuaded to take jobs that give them some sort of status or admiration. Whatever career they choose, it has to intrigue their curiosity as well as be something they can pour themselves into. Capricorn Monkeys will keep climbing as long as there is room to climb, so careers with limited ceilings need to have other desirable aspects to them, such as money, power, or rank.
Interestingly, the most fitting careers for this sign involve very little power or authority. Instead, they are roles in which the Capricorn Monkey can make a contribution to society through their intellect and creative thinking. Engineer, computer programmer, and city planner top the list of compatible careers for this sign, followed by careers such as geologist, physicist, and occupational therapist. Though this may seem to contradict the creative nature of the Capricorn Monkey, these are all careers in which ingenuity and unique approaches can lead to groundbreaking discoveries and the kind of cultural transformations that would satisfy the deepest desires of any member of this sign.
