If your little one is born between Dec. 22 and Jan. 19, then you’ve got yourself a Capricorn, and let us just say, a Capricorn is the legit GOAT of the zodiac. Yes, the sign is represented by the mystical sea-goat — part fish, part goat — but they’re also the ones who will roll up their sleeves to get sh*t done. Ambitious, practical, and methodical, Capricorns are in it to win it, and, like the mountain goat, they won’t hesitate to climb mountains to get what they want and become The Greatest of All Time. Many, many Capricorn quotes exist that attest to this fact.

Ruled by the planet Saturn, Capricorns actually enjoy discipline and organization. They thrive when life is completed in an orderly fashion; chaos is not an option in the Capricorn’s playbook. Not surprisingly, Capricorns lean towards being more Type A personalities and prefer to take the reins of any project. Stubborn and tunnel-visioned, they don’t do well with playing second fiddle or taking orders from anyone (especially Mom). They are the planners in their friend group, the student who organizes study sessions, the director of the school plays. But that’s not to say Capricorns are all work and no fun. Caps are known for their intelligence and clever wit, and like the fish side of their symbol, they feel tons of feelings underneath their reserved demeanor. Loyal and helpful to a fault, these pioneering sea goats are inspiring to watch. No wonder we love Capricorns like Michelle Obama, Mary J. Blige, Kate Moss, Jim Carrey, Tony Robbins, Martin Luther King Jr., and Deepak Chopra.
