Neptune in Capricorn Personality

Neptune in Capricorn just wants to be successful. Visions of sports cars, executive offices, and a lavish lifestyle frequent their dreams. Only the best satisfies Capricorn Neptune. Unlike other Neptune placements, these individuals know these dreams can only be realized through hard work and tenacity and often aren't afraid to get their hands dirty—within reason, of course.

In this way, Capricorn corrals slippery Neptune and uses its imagination for more reasonable ends. In turn, Neptune softens Saturn's severe tone, allowing an otherwise stressed sign a well-deserved breath of fresh air. As they mix creativity and career, these individuals are likely to go far in life.

Positive Traits

Though Capricorn Neptune retains most of the practical nature of the Sea Goat's sober energy, they hold firmly onto their dreams, as is the typical Neptunian way. Compared to Neptune in other signs, these folks are unlikely to lose their heads in the clouds. In the same vein, they can be less stuck in their ways than the average Capricorn placement.

With the firm grasp of Saturn loosened, Capricorn Neptune is less perturbed by roadblocks in their path to success. When thwarted, these natives' exertions simply flow in another direction. Success is a given in the mind of a Neptune in Capricorn native. It's simply a question of "how."

Negative Traits

Neptune in Capricorn is dead set on their goals—whether or not they're presently within the realm of possibility. Such is their determination that these individuals believe they can bend the world to their will. Rarely is this so. This belief in their authority extends to other people. Therefore, Capricorn Neptune can be more than a little pushy.

Despite Neptune's dreamy influence, Neptune in Capricorn isn't the most imaginative placement. With the stifling presence of Saturn, Capricorn's ruling planet, escaping the specter of pessimism can be a challenge. Furthermore, their conservatism can sometimes smother their creativity.


With Neptune in a Saturn-ruled earth sign, Neptune in Capricorn makes for a less transcendental placement. They are realists. However, even the most pragmatic individuals still have dreams. Those with Neptune in this sign simply dream of worldly success and exceeding the benchmarks set by generations past. They see skyscrapers and wonder how they can build them higher. Overachiever is a word that effectively describes the Capricorn Neptune mentality.

However, not unlike other Capricorn placements, Neptune in Capricorn risk setting impossibly high expectations for themselves. These may even be compounded by Neptune's aspirational energy. As in all cases, moderation is necessary. As those with this placement reach for the stars, they must never lose sight of just how far up those twinkling lights can be.
