What to expect from a Capricorn baby

Born under an earth element, and with their feet firmly on the ground, young Capricorns are all about structure and stability. Set the rules early and your serious little goat will thrive and reward you with good behaviour.

Capricorn babies love a challenge and are great decision-makers. But they are purposeful, rather than impulsive, so give them the room and time to make up their minds. And while they love people, they do mostly enjoy playing on their own.

Ambitious young beings, Capricorn kids strive to succeed and are willing to put in the hard work to make sure they achieve their goals. They’re curious creatures who like to know how everything works, so playtime is all about discovery and they thrive in nature.
