It’s Capricorn season! The first and last days of every year are dedicated to this zodiac sign — December 22 to January 19. The GOAT of the twelve signs, Capricorns are known for their fearless ambition and resilience. It’s said that Capricorns have a bit of a wild side that we’d be lucky to see. Maybe they’d show it if they got to unwind more! So for our ambitious, hard-working, and disciplined Capricorns, here are seven Black-owned businesses aligned with their personality.
