Hard as nails outside, soft as cotton inside — that's this Capricorn through and through. This creates some challenging situations for the Goat. The ever-confident, able-to-leap-tall-buildings demeanor can be off-putting. You can come across as perfectly content alone, yet you yearn for strong connections.
In work and life, you have a vision, but can't always communicate it effectively. Then in true Capricornish fashion, you simply decide to go it alone if need be. Any disappointment in others or personal insecurity subsequently gets tucked beneath your convincing façade until the vision has either succeeded or failed miserably.
It doesn't help that you have a Taurus decanate adding a relentless stubborn will, nor do the perfectionist energies of number 7 improve matters. You have a highly skeptical side, one that demands proof especially when your personal ideals or goals are challenged. In relationships this means you need detail-oriented global thinkers to be somewhat satisfied. Unusual for a Capricorn, you have an intense romantic side.

In the thirteenth century garnets were worn to repel insects. They were also thought to protect against lightning, ward off disease, change color when danger approaches, and ensure the bearer a cheerful personality.
