It's no secret that Capricorns are a special breed.
You either love them or pretend you don't know them. There's no middle ground when it comes to their direct nature which, to the naked eye, more often than not seems a little scary.
So, you can already guess what I'm about to tell you; Capricorns are freaking awesome. If you get to know them, that is.
And no, I'm not a Capricorn so I'm not praising myself (that's something I'll save for my next article).
Capricorns are formally known for their stubborn and no-nonsense attitude, but that's exactly what makes them the strongest sign of all.
I should know, I grew up with a Capricorn by my side. She was there at my worst, she was there at my best and she was there when no one else gave a f*ck.
See, that's the beauty of Capricorns; they won't ever give up on you. Not just because they are related to you or need something in return; it's because they actually give a damn.
Genuine, loving and loyal are just a few of their personality traits. Like the rest of us, they're far from perfect, but believe me when I tell you that there is no way you can ever replace a Capricorn.
Besides the fact that both Kate Moss and Martin Luther King, Jr. are Capricorns, here are five other reasons Capricorns are irreplaceable:
1. Capricorns are responsible
They always come to the rescue, are never late and are always paying their bills on time. Capricorns are the most responsible creatures you'll ever meet.
That's why having a Capricorn as your SO is so damn helpful when you're an unorganized mess (trust me, I should know).
2. Capricorns are genuine
This is from someone who spent the last two years in England – finding someone who is genuine is like finding a needle in a haystack. Or a unicorn, seriously.
With everyone high on social media, it's hard to see through a person's mask.
You always wonder if they mean what they say and say what the mean – OK, I think you get the point. Luckily, there ain't no guessing game when it comes to Capricorn.
They're real AF and have absolutely no patience for BS. You get what you see, and you never have to wonder what they're thinking.
3. They're the best listeners
I like to talk, and I like to talk A LOT.
So if you're like me and need someone to listen, that's where a Capricorn in your life will be beyond useful.
With the ability to stay neutral and somehow not judge you (at least not visibly..) they also have the superpower of giving great advice.
4. They're devoted
You'll rarely meet a Capricorn who will say "I love You" after just a few weeks of dating. Capricorns are logical creatures, but they are also classic over-thinkers.
They'll think everything through a dozen times before making a decision. So, when they say those three magic words;you know they mean it.
5. They have incredible instincts
Growing up, I always knew that if my sister didn't like someone, there's always a good reason and to listen to her instinct. Capricorns are known to have incredible instincts about people, as their ability to read people sometimes seems supernatural.
They are able to see a person's true motivations within moments of meeting them... and more often than not turn out to be right.
At the end of the day, all it takes with Capricorns is time and patience to get to know them. They may take a little time to warm up to you, but all good things are worth the wait.
If there's one thing I know, it's that Capricorns are simply irreplaceable.
