The combination of the character traits of the conventional Western astrology sign of Capricorn and the Chinese astrology's Sheep is an interesting blend. A Capricorn Sheep personality is believed to be a mixture of the down-to-earth Capricorn Goat and the slightly hesitant, careful Sheep. These combined characteristics make the Capricorn Sheep rather common-sensical, practical and cautious. They are thought to be bestowed with the pragmatic intelligence and practicality of both personality-influencing creatures. This makes Capricorn Sheep straightforward personalities who, while not overly sensitive or emotional, are for the most part respectful of the feelings of others.
A Capricorn Sheep is sensible with a matter-of-the-fact attitude to almost everything. They see things in a logical way and can detach themselves from attractive labels or fancy price tags. They have the same approach with people, and will not be attracted to anyone who is trying to be something that they are not. A Capricorn Sheep does not often fall in love easily, so it is sometimes a long process before they begin to appreciate and rely on another. These personalities can quite often be as guarded in personal relationships as they are in every other area of their life. They will often only enter into long-term commitments if they are completely convinced that it is the right person.
The Capricorn Sheep's realistic approach to everything makes them usually fascinating to talk to. They quite like expressing their views, but do not like to impose them on other people - they would rather just debate ideas. These are fairly good communicators for Capricorns, and the carefulness from the Sheep stops them from speaking before thinking. Capricorn Sheep are often goal-oriented and prefer work that allows them to progress. These individuals can make effective business people, with their pragmatic and cool, detached personalities. Many may explore and consider self-employment as an option. They are very assertive people, and so ideally suited to the fast decision-making and exciting pace of the world of business.
At home, the Capricorn Sheep keeps an even balance between his or her needs for company and privacy, quietness and noise. They single out stylish and luxurious furnishings for their living spaces, and love antique furniture or unusual things that have a history. These Capricorns can be a bit untidy and lazy at home, but this is because it is where they usually feel most at ease. In any spare time, the Capricorn Sheep likes to travel and experience the freedom of taking a complete break from the normal routine. They always tend to return refreshed and rejuvenated from their travels.
The efficiency and consistency of the Capricorn Sheep's usual balanced personality have a few tiny weaknesses. These personalities can sometimes be prone to shyness, self-doubt and anxiety, from the influence of the cautious Sheep. These negative traits are likely to appear if the Capricorn Sheep has taken on more than he or she can handle, business or relationship-wise. This will grind them down and a gradual lack of confidence will begin.
