From just someone’s sun sign however we can only predict some aspects of their personality and it’s too much of a leap to try and predict behavior from just those. Astrology has fairly precise limits. This is an example of an area where sun signs are just too broad and clumsy to give an answer. A real compatibility reading is required to answer the question.
Of course, should he become a father before he’s ready, this could be a different story. The unestablished Capricorn can be a total deadbeat dad. His sign can only focus on one thing at a time, and he doesn’t do well when life happens out of sequence. In his mind, the path goes: love, financial security, marriage, kids. When an unscheduled pregnancy messes with the master plan, he’s forced to juggle his duties, something he’s not very good at. To Capricorn, not being able to provide for his kids is the ultimate shame. This is the father who may be estranged from his children until much later in life, when he’s found the wisdom and direction to face them with dignity.
Invite him to a quiet evening in. The best way to get to know your Capricorn guy, and show him that you’re the real deal, is by taking the first leap. Invite him over for dinner, on a picnic, or to do something else just the two of you. Inviting him to a big party will generally make him uneasy, while inviting him for dinner will most likely make him open up. This is also your time to shine–bring up topics that you are passionate about and allow him to relaxing into a stimulating conversation.
A Capricorn is going to have money to take you out to dinner, and will absolutely have his own place (male Caps will typically try to purchase property early in life) – and not only that, these guys will already be in charge of their own empire.
A Capricorn man enjoys his solitude. So, don’t take it to heart if he seems to be avoiding you. Understand he will not dive heart first into a relationship. Just show him you’re interested, in it to win, and be willing to wait.
Take charge guy that he is, he’s also shy and reserved. Parties can make him uneasy and social settings often make him uncomfortable. So, it’s in such situations he’ll appreciate his partner taking the lead. You’ll be a great asset to a Capricorn man if you’re friendly, outgoing, and sociable. He’s a gentle man with a great sense of humor that tends to be a bit sardonic, so don’t be afraid to show off your witty humor. Just don’t flirt or do anything that will embarrass him.
Gain his trust. Capricorns have a hard time opening up to others. Before he lets you in, he will have to know that he can trust you. Be honest and open with him but expect that it will take him a bit longer to share his inner workings with you. Your Capricorn guy will take his time, but with help from you–showing you are supportive, displaying ways you are trustworthy–he will eventually let you into his heart.
Both the Cancer woman and Capricorn man love home and family, but they’re worlds apart when it comes to emotion. Cancer may see the Goat as cold and distant, and Capricorn may think that the Crab is impractical and overly dramatic. Each will need to understand what makes the other tick if they are to build a lasting romance.
These two opposites don’t bring out the best in each other. Sagittarius woman is all about having fun, while the Goat is focused on responsibilities. Her free-spirited independence can make him feel insecure, and she may feel smothered by his possessiveness. Needless to say, a relationship between these two will take some work.
This is a question which is very hard to give a general answer on, as no two Capricorn men are totally identical. The key is understanding him and what he finds most attractive in a partner. Astrology can provide a wealth of information to enable this, however natal charts need to be prepared and studied to do so. Please see the article on seduction and astrology for more information on this.
Goal-driven and eternally work-focused, Saturn-ruled Capricorn men keep their eye on the peak of the summit they’re climbing. Very little can distract them from achieving their career ambitions. Though they may seem overly serious and gloomy, once you get to know these guys, you’ll discover a raucous sense of humor and lust for life that may seem to come out of nowhere, surprising even those closest to them.
They are dependable, particularly in a crisis, though they dislike chaos and unpredictability. When asked, they give sound, practical advice. As a rule they’re not aggressive people, and only express hostility as a defense.
The Goats are conservative by nature and prefer to play by the rules. They are very protective of their emotional and financial security, and will not take anyone on face value. You will have to put in a lot of effort to prove your trustworthiness to get close to the Goat. If your sweetheart is a Capricorn, and you wish to get married, you would be better off first getting your Kundali Matching done. Some other characteristics of the Capricorn men are given here below.
Once you’re in love with a Capricorn man, you might feel that you only see him early in the morning before he heads off to work, or else late at night after he’s pulled a long shift at the office. As long as you have your own thing going on and are comfortable dating a workaholic, this should work out well. All the better if you are a generally optimistic sort of person who can stay happy and cheerful even when dealing with the grumpiest curmudgeon. Are you and your Cap a good match? Find out here.
A Capricorn man will do everything right. He will take you to the right places, respect you, take you home, pay for your cab and hold your door. The ruler of his sign is exalted in Libra, and he knows that his biggest asset is his ability to be tactful, well-behaved and gallant. He will seem like this strong, incredibly mature man who knows exactly what he wants and isn’t afraid to get it. He will love being on a date with someone who admires him, but also keeps a rational distance and remains secretive.
The Leo woman loves the center of attention, while the Goat is an introvert. With this pair, arguments about money could be numerous because she loves to spend extravagantly while he’s a penny-pincher. Embracing their differences will be key to beating the odds when it comes to love between these two.
We cape’s are pretty easy to please. We won’t be forced to do anything. We don’t like folks who brag, we are very business minded so everything needs to be fair for both people involved. We don’t trust easily, we have to warm up to you but we are loyal friends, we don’t show too much emotion but if we love you we love hard. Don’t ever snoop through our possessions. We love our privacy. We are uber reliable. When we are done we are done. Don’t ever try to embarrass us especially in public. if we get mad run for the hills. Show us the same love and appreciation we show you, basically mirror our behavior, its that simple.
It’s easy to get discouraged when you’ve fallen for a Capricorn man. He has a seemingly impenetrable exterior that might take months to chip away. But when it finally erodes, a warm, sensitive man is found beneath the surface. He will make an excellent life partner and a devoted father.
When you’re officially dating a Capricorn man, all the first date tips still apply. However, probably the most important thing to understand about a Capricorn man is he takes his career very seriously. He’s not a 9 to 5, weekends off sort of guy. So, dating may be catch as catch can. Just don’t take that as a lack of interest and don’t rush him or push him into anything. He’ll think more of you if have a life of your own and even more if you’re also a busy career oriented person. Still, the more available you are to him, the more available he’ll be to you.
The Capricorn man in your life may be a mysterious paradox. Due to hard his reticent nature, it may feel like he’s hard to get to truly know. These men tend to build high, icy walls around their true inner selves that only the most intrepid climbers can eventually scale.
Should you find yourself on such Freudian turf, be careful. The allure of this daddy-daughter dynamic can find you willingly handing over your power, making too many compromises to keep him. He can become a real tyrant if you open that door. Take care not to muffle your voice or strength with Capricorn. Pave the road for equality early with this guy unless you want to create your own personal Mussolini. Decide where you’re okay letting him rule the roost, and stand firm in your boundaries everywhere else. Guard your “sacred space.” Try this visualization: imagine drawing a line of demarcation, and planting your body firmly on that border like an impervious iron wall that nobody—not even your Cap—can penetrate. He may not like it, but you’ll win his respect, which is ultimately one of the most important cornerstones for long-term love with a Capricorn.
Once the Goat admits to finding the love of his life, he will never give up trying to woo her. This is, remember, the most determined sign. He prefers his woman to wear conservative clothing to leave more to the imagination. He is classy and sophisticated. He doesn’t appreciate a woman to be dressed sloppily, and great hygiene is a definite must.
The Pisces woman and Capricorn man are very different, but they often complement each other well. The Goat can help ground the Fish and bring order to her life, and Pisces will help Capricorn express his feelings.
My cappy guy epxressed to me yhat for 10 yrs he wanted me badly. At first I was very skeptical about giving in but after awhile I said why not. It wad like a match made in heaven and I was for certain he was my guy until I expressed more and more my undying love for him that he started acting differently towards me. Hr stopped answering my calls but when he became ready is when he would reach out which emotionally confused me. On top of me finding out that I wad carrying his baby he still was distant but would text. Im trying to figure him out but im am emotional virgo who wants love and affection not rejection. Most of the characteristics you described suits him well I love this man but i dont know if its emotionally healthy for me.
The Goat is often a loner who permits few people into his inner circle, as many Capricorns are shy. Because of Capricorn’s suspicious nature, you’ll have to prove your trustworthiness before he accepts you as a friend. Once you’ve accomplished this feat, a Capricorn man will be your loyal, dependable, supportive companion. But if you ever break the bond of trust don’t count on getting a second chance. The Goat will move on and never look back.
Show off your intellect. Capricorn guys are attracted to intellect above anything else. Regardless of the gorgeous outfit you’re wearing or your ridiculously gorgeous face, if you come across as ditzy or rather air-headed, your Capricorn may lose interest. Instead, show off your beautiful brain by engaging him in some stellar conversation. However, keep your cool and remain composed–don’t guffaw if he makes a joke.
If you are looking for a man at which you can point your finger and say: “He is difficult”, that would be a Capricorn man. He is not easy to be with, as an Earth sign, nor as someone who’s Sun is ruled by Saturn. He can be too strict and his expectations might be impossible to meet. If he doesn’t find the true magic of love, he will be possessive but stubborn, without any compromises made or any flexibility. This is exactly why it is so profound and inspiring to win his heart and see him melt, change and open up for things he would never consider before he met you. When he loves someone, there is rarely anything he wouldn’t do for his loved one, and it is safe to say that he is prepared to stay with the right partner forever, and never doubt his decision, or his emotions.
Most Capricorn men believe in quality and are not superficial. They prefer intelligence, integrity and character more than everything else. Besides, they are not the ones too fond of extravagance and materialism. They are self-dependent and sincere, and are happy to be in their worlds where they are surrounded by genuine well-wishers.
The Goats are generous and wise, and are admired for their logical thinking and simple outlook towards life. Their concepts are very simple and clear and these men will consciously try not to make matters complicated. They will utilise their energies in the proper direction and come up with practical, acceptable ideas. They take relationships very seriously. They will not commit to a relationship unless they feel they can do justice to it. You will never see them giving half-hearted attempts.
I like the pace you describe here – of getting to know someone before moving forward. For some reason, there are a lot of men who want to get married right away, but haven’t known you that long. I’m the opposite – I at least want to get to know someone before signing the dotted line!
Capricorn men are experts at managing and organizing, and as such, they’re often found at the head of a company or in some other leadership position. A typical Capricorn man may have a job as an administrator, a doctor, an engineer, a “headhunter,” a CEO or a politician. Quiet evenings at home are much more his speed than parties, clubs or crowded restaurants. It may be difficult to find a Capricorn at the usual singles haunts. Instead focus on career-oriented functions, professional organizations, charity events or anything that might help further his career.
These guys can be the Eeyores of the zodiac, difficult to cheer up once they’re in a solid funk. They can be hard to please, even when surprised with the most special of treats. Find out what puts a smile on his face, and take notes for next year!
The Spanish singer, who has also dabbled in writing and acting, but rode the crest of fame as a singer, particularly with his hit number Livin’ la Vida Loca, does not have too many stars in his favor in the forthcoming year, says Ganesha after analyzing his horoscope.
The Capricorn man is often seen as cold and emotionally aloof, but this is largely a protective mechanism. Once he’s convinced that your motives are sincere he’ll open up to you, although this could take some time. The quality of the relationship will usually improve with age, so hang in there! You’ll discover that the more secure he is in a relationship, the more willing he is to share his deepest feelings.
Outwardly reserved the Capricorn man is a complicated bundle of practicality, endearing modesty and self discipline, often reserving his fun and sexy wild side strictly for those who are very close to him. Capricorn men want to succeed. Goals and a practical viewpoint often characterize this man.
What’s the big deal, you may wonder. Don’t those vows include “for better and for worse”? Besides, you’re a modern woman who doesn’t care if she out-earns her man. It’s all about love. Superwoman doesn’t need Superman. It’s okay if he’s Clark Kent—or hey, how about Louis Lane?
Keep dramatics to a minimum. Capricorns seek stability–they want someone who is devoted and serious about the relationship. Hysterics or mind games will turn a Capricorn off a relationship. If he upsets you, tell him what he has done and why it upsets you. Your Capricorn wants to make you happy and when you tell him directly what you need or what you dislike, he will do everything in his power to make sure he does not upset you in that way again.
The Scorpio woman and the Capricorn man are both slow to trust and commit, so this relationship will take some time. Once it does, it will be beneficial to both parties. Scorpio’s intense passion will provide Capricorn with the emotional security he needs, and his undying devotion will make her feel truly loved.
Without a doubt, but only if he has made a decision to be faithful, honest and monogamous. In any other scenario, everything can be expected and he will act in the way he thinks appropriate. In general, he fears the feeling of guilt, and as far as his awareness goes, he will not hurt, lie or cheat on anyone intentionally. Still, it is a sign ruled by Saturn, the planet of our unconscious, and he sometimes loses control over his choices, not even aware of it. This is the reason why he likes to control every little thing, thinking he can avoid his own irresponsible actions.
It is not easy to understand a Capricorn man. He seems to be cold and distant, way too rational and critic, but we rarely stop to realize that he is actually afraid of failure, strict toward himself and always trying to remain in control. He doesn’t want to make a mistake, for he understands the consequences of any action better than anyone else. This makes him cautious, careful not to challenge karma and focused on himself and his practical goals that give him the idea he has life under control. He builds walls in order to stay protected, either sabotaged, scolded or even left by his father, or other influential role models. When you get to know him and see his soft side behind these walls, you will never want to be without him again.
Security is very important to this man, and he will prefer a stable and down to earth lover. He often admires those who are hard-working or have ambition over those who are more physically attractive but lacking in ambition. He has very little tolerance for lazy people, and often enjoys the company of optimists over pessimists
Capricorn men are very good looking men. That is fortunate for them since they are often too shy to approach women. They just stand there and look tall, strong and attractive, and the ladies come to them.
Okay, now for the warning label. This is sticky territory that we hate to cover, but feel we must. If you want a working relationship with Capricorn, ask yourself: How willing am I to be submissive? There will be compromises and power dynamics to navigate. If you’re a go-getter who accomplishes goals at the speed of sound, take extra care that he doesn’t feel left behind. Should you be more established than your Cap, you’ll need to bolster his ego (without being obvious) and let him build his own empire, at his own ambling pace. Excruciating patience is a must.
Thank you for your comment, Claudia. I took an interest in Astrology several years ago, exactly for the same reason; as an avenue to learn about and understand others. I have a series of hubs on the basics. Learning about the significance of the houses and planets is a good place to start. There are many good books you can buy, as well. I recommend you actually purchase books instead of getting them from the library so you have them to reference at will. Good luck!
No, this article is based only on sun signs. Those are a convenient and fast way to generalize, but far from conclusive at this broad level. There are many other planet placements which all affect someone’s personality.
I read this and felt a very strong YES!!! I WANT TO Do THAT TOO!! Can you give some advice on how to start my studies. I know a little bit but not much…I do not study Astrology to predict the future, but I do study it to learn about others. It is extremely fascinating to see a part of one’s behavior come to life once you understand the astrological reason for it. I believe studying astrology makes for a more tolerant attitude towards those that are different from you.
The Capricorn man prefers to live by the rules. Extremely determined and goal oriented, he believes in following well-laid plans to achieve success. He is very serious and practical about attaining what he wants most: respect, social status and financial security. He’ll often lose himself in achieving his goals, but he’ll do so with honesty and integrity.
With traits that are often perceived as cold, callous, and uncaring, the Capricornian male’s secret is his raw and sensitive heart, which he feels he must keep shielded from the world. It’s common for these men to take a cynical or nihilistic view of most people, and not many are ever really invited into his inner circle. On top of that, you may not meet too many of these elusive Sea-Goats (unless you work with them), because they don’t tend to be incredibly social personalities.
The Goat is methodical and will become friends with a woman before he decides to move into a romantic relationship. Once the woman he is interested in makes her move and he is in an intimate relationship, he is quite the romantic. Chivalry is not dead! However, when he does fall in love, he won’t tell her. She will know the moment he does, probably by the way he looks at her and increases his acts of service. He can be a bit on the picky side, but if you can get the Goat he is worth keeping.
In the kitchen cupboard, there may be only one plate, one bowl, and one cup – because it seemed impractical to buy more “for no reason.” If you move in, you might want to bring your own. But beware: Trying to effect changes in the established ways of a Capricorn man might have you seeing his horns. He has things set up the way they are for a very good reason (in his own mind), and it will take a steady supply of rational arguments to convince him that shifting things around might actually be a good idea. This resistance to change and new ideas can also result in a traditionalism that might make his house look exactly like every other one on the block – with a white picket fence and beige paint. But inside, it is another story.
The Capricorn man wants a relationship that’s built to last. He’ll take pains to make sure you’re a solid bet, and the evaluation process could be lengthy. He prefers to meet people through trusted sources like family or friends, or at a comfortable hangout where he doesn’t feel awkward and out of place. To Capricorn, relationships are an obligation he takes very seriously. He doesn’t commit to anyone unless he knows he can give it his all. Sure, he may go through the boyfriend motions, but he’ll usually back out before it goes too far.
Capricorns love dark comedies and, if they can find a way to laugh and find humor in the even the bleakest situations, they’ll be able to manage their innate, melancholic bent for dwelling on the negative aspects of life. They might not display their oddness overtly, but remember that a traditional-looking or acting Capricorn man is actually an extremely peculiar and particular sort of fellow beneath that nondescript veneer.
The happy-go-lucky Libra woman may have a real problem with Capricorn’s somber outlook, while the Goat may consider her frivolous and capricious. It may take some work for these two to really understand one another.
There is a paradox in the sign of Capricorn. On one hand, it is a sign of Mars’ exaltation and this gives a Capricorn man enough sexuality and stamina to endure in incredibly satisfying sexual relations for a very long time. On the other, Capricorn and its ruler Saturn inhibit every action that has no depth, and he will not be much of a lover unless he builds a true emotional bond first. When he does, that’s a different story, but he needs time to understand that what is needed for a great sex life is – emotion.
With a down-to-earth personality, Capricorn men are the most hardworking of all the signs in the zodiac. This is thanks to their ability to focus intently on the work at hand, whatever it may be, and steadily make progress until they attain their goal. Slowly but surely, one cloven hoof in front of the other, the determined Goat man will climb his own personal mountain with a combination of extraordinary perseverance and dedication to duty.
When a Capricorn man falls in love, the first thing he will do is start acting strange. He is not familiar with emotion, in general, and he will look at the subject of his desire as an extraterrestrial that came down to Earth only to confuse him. This will pass with the first love, maybe with the second, but there is always that probability that he will look at his loving partner as someone from another world or time. He will have to learn slowly how to act in order to win someone’s heart. If he is lucky enough for his first stroke of love to be returned, there is a chance he will remain in the same relationship for a very long time, maybe even for as long as they both shall live. He is one of the most stable, stubborn, deeply emotional signs in the zodiac. He never takes anything lightly, and he refuses to be superficial, which makes his emotions profound and real when they finally surface
Relationships are complex things, comprising hundreds of individual elements. Sun signs are one of these, however a detailed analysis of everything is required to find all the strong and weak areas. Please see the article on astrology and soulmates for more information on how astrology can be used to determine if someone is your soulmate.
The home of a Capricorn man can often feel more like a wild animal’s den or a monk’s hermitage than a particularly comfortable living space. Don’t expect to find a lot of comfy cushions or throw pillows cast about – or even a couch. Capricorns are all about function, and sometimes they forget that form (and comfort) are equally as important.
