    Capricorn and Work

    Capricorn ( Dec 22 - Jan19 ) and Work :

    Can you say workaholic? Capricorn is the most ambitious, industrious sign of the zodiac. You accept responsibility without complaint. You know how to operate within an organization, large or small, and when a structure is lacking, you know how to create one. You may not like bureaucracy, but you understand it, and you're at home in a corporation. Naturally you crave recognition. And let's face it: Although recognition comes in many guises, its primary form is money. You understand the stuff. Occasionally, you even become obsessed with it because money is a sign of accomplishment. Consider, for example, this remark from the eccentric, obsessive-compulsive tycoon Howard Hughes. "I'm not a paranoid deranged millionaire," he said. "Goddamit, I'm a billionaire."
    So, yes, some Capricorns are covetous and materialistic. Most are not. And many of you have a little-recognized ability to put the good of others ahead of your selfish desires. Not for nothing was Martin Luther King, Jr., a Capricorn. Those born under the sign of the Goat, despite a reputation for capitalist venality, often have a social conscience. They just don't think they should have to suffer for it.
    If you work for a Capricorn, everything you ever learned about how to behave at work applies: Be on time, dress for the next level up, anticipate your boss's needs, be organized, and so forth. Avoid office pranks: Naked pictures on the copier won't amuse your straight-arrow boss. And make sure that nothing suspect appears on your computer screen and that includes solitaire. Remember: Capricorns wrote the rules. You'd be a fool to break them.
