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.

Know that he will spend some late nights at the office. Capricorn is known as the workaholic of the zodiac signs. He takes his job very seriously and will be working overtime on occasion. Be prepared for this and know that it is not a sign of him losing interest in your relationship. He really does just take his job seriously and wants to do the best work he can.
Keep the PDA to a minimum. PDA (public displays of affection) are not really the Capricorn’s cup of tea. While holding hands is probably fine (he might even prefer holding hands because of his protective nature) making out in the middle of a busy street will probably make him feel a bit uneasy. Capricorns don’t really like having their private lives become public knowledge, so you may want to think twice before grabbing him by the suit lapels and giving him a smooch in public.
We have a dedicated section for Capricorn man gifts with examples of the types of gifts which Capricorn men enjoy within various categories from naughty to practical, including reader submitted suggestions.
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.
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.
With his date, time and location of birth these other factors can be calculated for a complete picture of his personality. To explore this further please see my article on astrology compatibility readings.
I very much enjoyed reading your hub! I’m an astrological nut, so I read about it a lot. I think yours was practical and cute. I especially liked your statement: “I believe studying astrology makes for a more tolerant attitude towards those that are different from you.” I agree. Thanks again for the interesting read!
Not gonna happen. The Capricorn man’s worst nightmare goes something like this: You arrive at a party with your Capricorn hubby Rob, and the hostess steers you into the living room for introductions. “Everyone, this is Amy. She’s an amazing trial lawyer who’s just made partner at her firm, and she’s running for city council! Oh, and this is her husband Rob. He’s been working odd jobs for the last ten years, while dreaming up how to make his millions. Amy pays the mortgage in the meanwhile, but we know that’s just a short-term thing—right? Everyone, say hello to Amy and Rob!”
Buy him simplistic, practical gifts. Capricorn guys enjoy functional things that aren’t particularly flashy. Rather than getting him that $2,000 watch with all those rhinestones, think along the lines of a Swiss Army knife or a grill for those backyard barbecues he loves so much.
These Goats work with single-minded dedication, give all that they can to reach their goals and achieve their dreams. The Goats are ambitious, patient, often quite successful and will avoid self-praise.
Johnny g, It can be very difficult to open up when it comes to your feelings. That is completely understandable. It may have to do with trust issues. Stop and think about it for a moment. If you are with someone you love and trust, what do you have to lose? Sure you risk rejection. Rejection can be painful, but it is also a growing experience. If the one you love truly loves you, he/she will accept your feelings, and appreciate your honesty. If it doesn’t work out, you can live with yourself and knowing you were honest, and use the experience. Each relationship is a learning experience, helping you to learn what you truly want and don’t want in a partner. That being said, however, I truly believe that if you can muster the courage to open up and make yourself a bit vulnerable, you will be pleasantly surprised. Good Luck!!
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.
For many people starting to date a Capricorn is the hardest part. Once you get them to open up, things are much easier. Capricorns are somewhat unique in being much more friendly with their loved ones than with strangers. Many partners find this ‘self enforced’ loyalty to be very endearing. The partner of a Capricorn woman usually feels secure in the relationship.
You may feel that the Goats are slightly cold, detached and emotionally aloof. However, it is the Capricorn man’s way of protecting his emotions. They take a long time to open up, express their love and share their experiences. You have to give them enough reasons to trust your sincerity. Since they protect themselves so carefully, people find it very difficult to connect with them emotionally. This is why their desire for love, respect, and praise often goes unfulfilled. They are friendly and love to mix with people but you cannot expect them to be the partying types. Even at social gatherings they will behave conservatively. You will never find them behaving in a flashy way.
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.
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.
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.
No advice will ever apply to every Capricorn man as they are all unique in various ways. I specialize in offering tailored advice based on your unique personality and his together, as one without the other isn’t nearly as useful. My astrology readings solve real relationship problems for real people every day. For more information please see the article on relationship advice.
While the Capricorn man is reserved, he’s far from being an unenthusiastic lover. He’s not a playboy, but he’s a man who can give himself fully to a deep intimacy with the right person. He’s a patient man who has an innate understanding of ways to please his lover and always strives to be best. It may take a while to get him in bed, but a night with a Capricorn man is worth working and waiting for. As with everything in a Capricorn man’s life, success is the goal. So, if you want a Capricorn man to do something special, challenge him and he’ll be eager to please.
If you want to take these guys on a trip instead of giving them something material, make sure it’s not a total surprise, and give them plenty of notice to plan time off work and to thoroughly research your destination. These men can be a bit pedantic and overly detail-oriented in their approach to life, but if you keep an enthusiastic and positive attitude, you’ll find that it’s not so hard to please your favorite Sea-Goat.
Know that your Capricorn isn’t a fan of big parties. This means throwing him a surprise birthday party is probably not the best idea. As you learned when trying to capture his attention, Capricorns only up to a select group of close friends and family. They take their time before letting others into their circle of trust. Because of this, a night out at his favorite bar with a group of his close friends, or a night at home spent with you, is more his speed than dancing at a crowded club or going to a party where he doesn’t know many people.
One of my first hubs describes love languages. In the recommended book, the author also encourages couples to date for two years before they marry. This gives them enough time to get to know each other. It also allows time for the honeymoon phase to wear off, and the couple will know if they are experiencing true love or infatuation.
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 Capricorn woman and Capricorn man will have a deep understanding of each other. With their determination and work ethic, there’s nothing this pair can’t achieve. Their biggest problem is that they’ll become so wrapped up in their responsibilities that they never take time out for fun.
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.
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.
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.
Capricorn men are defined by their cool, calm and resolute nature. There are often the strong and silent types who driven to acquire power and control over others. With the wackiest sense of humor and incredible good looks they are impossible to resist. When you crack their sometimes chilly cold dry exterior, however, there is an intelligent, passionate, and loyal man waiting underneath. Scroll down to Step 1 to learn how you can best date a Capricorn man.
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.
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.
Remain patient. Capricorn men are known to become friends with a woman before actually considering dating her. Because of this, your patience will probably be tried. While courting the Capricorn, don’t rush him or push him into anything. He will come to his own conclusions as you spend more and more time with him. Keep his attention on you by showing him you support his endeavors. Attending a fundraiser he puts on, reading an article he has written, or giving him a sincere compliment will show him that you can be a supportive partner.
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.
Capricorn men love things that are well made: fine leather goods, tailored suits, jackets, antiques, or rare books. First editions with beautiful leather bindings from their favorite authors will score you points, as well as unusual treasures like a brass spyglass or a ship in a bottle. Ruled by Saturn, lord of time, Capricorns tend to collect antique watches and clocks, and some even repair these as a hobby on their days off.
Work is generally very important to Capricorn men and they don’t take it lightly, holding fast to duty and responsibility, partly because they want to look good in front of the world, and partly for the security such behavior brings. Typically they prefer employment rather than the greater risk/reward of self employment.
I’m an Aries woman my husband of 10 years is a capricorn at first it was a lil difficult to understand him because capricorns are not the types to open up to any they have to feel comfortable they always have their guard up when it comes to a relationship.once he started to notice that it’s okay between us he started opening up more tell me things about him self his secrets even smile because they are very serious ppl but when they smile you have to be special to them they look so cute I love seeing my cap smile.i came to a conclusion to deal with a cap its been working and I been a happy woman.
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.
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.
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.
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.
This man may act completely disinterested in gift-giving holidays, but believe that he’s hoping you’ve discovered his wish list and have gotten him something in secret. Better act quick and get it for him before he buys it for himself, though – because a practical and often morose Capricorn doesn’t always expect to be treated by anyone else.
Be supportive while also working on achieving your own goal. A Capricorn’s idea of a perfect relationship is one that empowers both individuals. Support him in his endeavors just as he will support you in yours. Because he is bound to be driven, you should have your own independent goals and ideas that you are working on. The best relationship with a Capricorn man comes out of being both supportive and independent.
Capricorn men can be somewhat craggy emotionally, but they are also sexy as hell – much like an embodiment of Pan, the goat-footed Grecian god. If you’re willing to put up with his sometimes cantankerous moods, your Capricorn man will reward you with steadfastness, loyalty, and regular, dedicated servicing in the bedroom. He will doggedly apply his famous work ethic toward your pleasure. A Cap man aims to please, and if you tell him what you like, he’ll do it until you can’t take any more!
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.
This also applies to gossiping about your Capricorns. These guys are really private. If word gets back to him that you have been exposing the secrets of your relationship to everyone who will listen, he might feel betrayed or lose trust in you. Only discuss your love life with the friends you know you can trust.
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.
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.
Don’t play mind games. One thing a Capricorn guy will not participate in is a relationship mind game. If you are into him, make it clear and then wait for him to meet you halfway. Do not try to make him jealous by parading another guy around in front of him, acting passive aggressively, or playing ‘hard to get’. With a Capricorn guy, this will have the opposite of the desired effect–he will move on speedily and without a glance back.
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.
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!
When you link up with a Capricorn man for the long haul, it’s not just to live happily ever after. It’s to raise a family, make his ancestors proud, create a legacy, and pass on wisdom to the next generation. No pressure or anything.
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.
The Gemini woman and Capricorn man are almost total opposites. Gemini is ever-changing, which Capricorn will never understand. On the flipside, she may not like his love of rules and traditions. If they do manage to make things work it could make for a delightfully quirky pairing!
