The ascendant/rising sign (Capricorn or otherwise) describes how we appear to be, whereas the sun sign describes who we really are in a wider sense than just appearance. The charactersitics of Capricorn will somewhat modify and shape the characteristics of your sun sign.
For example, if you are a Leo with Capricorn rising, then you will tend to be more dedicated and serious than the average Leo. Or if you are a Cancer with Capricorn rising, then your natural tendencies towards nurturing and humanitarianism will be tempered by Capricorn's achievement drives and you will also tend to have even more dedication when it comes to family matters. If you have an earth sun sign (Taurus, Virgo or Capricorn) with a rising Capricorn, then you will have a double earth emphasis that can be either grounding or fixating to the extreme.
With Capricorn rising/ascendant, the qualities of Capricorn that will flavor your sun sign include being: achievement-oriented, dedicated, sensible, practical, insensitive, restrictive and/or obstinate.
