CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)
Natural rule-followers, Capricorns thrive on order and admire rules, hierarchies, and set ways to do things. They are smart, hardworking, and like to take matters into their own hands. Capricorn signs will always get what they set their mind to, as they have a strong will and a lot of persistence.
Capricorns may get a reputation as stubborn, but they simply know what they want, and they are after it. They can be very strict and set very high expectations of themselves and those in their environment. They might get stuck in one narrow way of doing something or hold a grudge for a moment too long.
1. Business analyst
Working as a business analyst will allow a Capricorn to evaluate and determine results based on logic and data. Their analytical skills are necessary for this role along with their drive to improve processes. Capricorns will use their conservative approach to collect and note information, create reports and work with management to report their observations.
There are various types of analyst positions out there, such as insurance actuary, business analyst for companies, cost estimator for products or projects, or investment companies to determine the best investment trends.
2. Supply chain manager
Capricorns are known for being good problem-solvers and they have great organisational skills. On top of that, they are hard-working, persistent and ambitious. These are all critical skills for a successful candidate in supply chain management.
Jobs that are also in line with this one are office manager, business professional or real estate investor.
Capricorns are after professions that have established steps for success, such as an in-demand trade career. In a career like that, there is usually some sort of security, like unions that will help support their upward track and help carry them to success. They will enjoy being practical, hands-on and being able to see the fruits of their labour come to fruition.
Other professions like electrician are plumber or trade professional.

4. Professional organiser
If you are a Capricorn and you haven't already seen "Get organised with The Home Edit" or "Tidying up with Marie Kondo" on Netflix, what are you waiting for? Capricorns are organised beings, there is no doubt about that, so they will be happy in a role that allows them to use their natural skills and abilities.
Their appreciation of routine and order means they will easily be able to identify better ways to store things, plan events or utilise space. They also have a good eye for detail and can easily diagnose shortcomings. Other similar professions would be housekeeper or event organiser.
5. Computer programmer
All the before-mentioned skills and characteristics of this sign will be valuable and useful in a role of a computer programmer. Capricorn likes to be in the driver's seat of their life and career, and this path will give them the chance to take full responsibility for their workload and development.
Coding and managing data will come easily to this sign as they are tenacious, dedicated and have a lot of patience to search for a missing tag in a bunch of code or discover why a script won’t run.
