“Only I can make myself happy.”
Capricorn is the most disciplined and punctual Sun Sign. They know the value of time and do not like to be kept waiting. They exercise great self-control, making them unlikely to be indulgent or spontaneous. They have a no-nonsense policy which often makes them appear unforgiving and condescending. If a Capricorn is not careful, they may be accused of being an arrogant know-it-all. Often pessimists, Capricorns struggle to find things that they like and enjoy. However, Capricorns are likely to find enjoyment in the finer things in life, like art and music. Capricorns make ideal managers due to their extraordinary self-discipline.
What to Know about Capricorn
Capricorn is an Earth Sign, along with Taurus and Virgo. Earth is a feminine element that combines the Zodiac qualities of cold and dry. The earthy nature of Capricorn keeps them practical and grounded in reality. Capricorns are often minimalists who cleanse their lives of anything deemed unnecessary. Given their grounded nature, Capricorns value their roots. They love their family and hold fast to tradition. The totem of Capricorn is the Sea-Goat, originating from the Greek God of the Wild, Pan. When Pan was running away from the giant Typhon, Pan jumped into the Nile River and sprouted a fishtail. The word "panic" is derived from the Greek God, Pan, who had a goat form. To this day, Capricorn is associated with fear, often being referred to as the "Goat of Fear".
Capricorn's ruling planet isaturn, emphasizing the value of time. Saturn encourages Capricorns to build up walls around themselves so that it's hard for others to get close to them. Saturn often highlights the negative emotions and obstacles in our lives, causing Capricorns to become pessimistic. Saturn encourages hard work and responsibility, which drives the daily life of a Capricorn.

She has pale green eyes and straight blonde hair that she tugs when she gets nervous. Stacy is aloof and prefers to keep her distance from her comrades.

Stacy is also the tarot expert among the Keepers, providing valuable readings that guide them.
