Both the Capricorn Goat from Western astrology and the Horse from Chinese astrology are considered steadfast and down-to-earth creatures. When a Capricorn is born in the Year of the Horse, the resulting personality of the Capricorn Horse is one of great consistency. These personalities are usually steady, determined, reliable, and emotionally and practically realistic. The Capricorn Horse is neither under or over-sensitive; they appear to have a fine balance between the two. They are mostly positive in their outlook and opinions, and will always try to help others if they can.
A Capricorn Horse personality acquires both the reliability of the Horse's character and the acute responsiveness from the traits of a typical Capricorn. This is a good mixture that creates people that are uncomplicated, consistent and considerate in all their actions, thoughts and words. Sometimes they are so unchanging in their mannerisms that others may find them boring. These individuals are not impulsive or irresponsible, yet they do know how to have fun. They may not be outwardly extroverted, but they can see the humorous side to life. A Capricorn Horse will endeavor to be inconsistent occasionally just to see people's reactions.
Being so predictable can have its advantages and disadvantages for the Capricorn Horse character. People rely on their expected dependability, and are sometimes disappointed if it does not live up to their expectations. This can make these Capricorns feel unduly pressured at times. On the plus side, the Capricorn Horse's stability and a good sense of direction help them plan well ahead. They are often able to anticipate future responsibilities that will probably be presented. These people are mature and responsive, and, being so solid in their responsible attitude, they make highly supportive partners and parents.
The Capricorn Horse's evenness of manner and mood is a good recipe for all kinds of relationships. In personal relationships with soulmates the Capricorn Horse does not have to try too hard to keep things harmonious. They are easy to get along with, and while not offering wild or spontaneous romance, they do offer lots of affection and much security to partners. Relationships with another will be loving, agreeable and equal, as these personalities are attentive and just right emotionally for caring and sharing situations. They will usually consider their personal relationship to be an immensely important part of their lives. When they make romantic commitments, they will be with the highest degree of sincerity.
The only major weakness in the Capricorn Horse's personality is their tendency to be a little too serious. They may find it difficult to be able to shake off the consistent fixed side of their personalities. Only when they manage to do this do they fully relax and allow a bit of excitement or humor into a sometimes uninteresting persona. They usually need encouragement from friends, family and partners to discourage this weakness from putting in an appearance. If these Capricorns manage to keep seriousness at a sensible level, they permit themselves to be able to enjoy life a bit more.
