Take them to a party where they will thrive meeting new people and own the room with their jokes and undeniably vivacious personality.

Let them unload and listen to them, it takes some time to strip away layers of secrecy from Capricorns.

A unique-looking pair of sunglasses would fit into their daily style to shade everyone around them while still looking boujee as hell.
