The Capricorn man is as romantic and emotional as anyone else, but can be somewhat inhibited in expressing his emotions, sometimes preferring to perform practical tasks to help loved ones in preference to making purely romantic gestures. If he seems more interested in being your personal handyman than getting you into bed, this is just his way of showing he cares!
Afraid is the wrong word for it, though this is a valid question, as they often come across this way. Capricorn men typically enjoy people, though they are often thoughtful, self-contained and shy. Their quiet exterior can make them appear to be loners, often building a wall of reserve around themselves. They are very loyal to those they care for, but often cold to those outside of their circle of friends and family. They are often highly cautious and analytical when making new friends.
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 creative and adventurous Aquarius woman may find the Goat a little boring. And because of his possessive nature, the Water-bearer will often feel trapped. It may seem that she’s simply too free-spirited for the traditional Capricorn man. Both will need to step out of their comfort zones a bit to find common ground.
He will be exceptionally cautious of making a commitment until he knows that your traits and lifestyle are compatible with his. He is very cautious by nature, and not one to rush into anything, so again don’t be misled if his interest appears mainly platonic for a long time.
The Sun sign is only one dominant influence in someone’s astrological natal chart. There are 10 astrological planets, 12 houses, and the aspects between them. If you ever have your chart read by an Astrologer, other parts of your personality will be revealed through many other planetary influences.
Capricorns are often pegged as “bad boys” in the zodiac, with their air of nonchalant cruelty and penchant for doom and gloom – but even sexier than your run-of-the-mill renegade rebelling against whatever you’ve got is a grown man who’s got his act together. Having something to back up all that brooding is way hotter than the typical black-clad heartbreaker (who works at the local gas station and probably lives in his parents’ basement).
The Virgo woman may make a wonderful partner for the Capricorn man. Both signs are practical, goal-oriented and level-headed. They’ll understand each other and will work hard to make a good life together. Grand romantic gestures may not come easily to either of them, so they may need to work a bit to keep things spicy.
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.
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.
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.
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.
If you’re lucky enough to be invited in, you’ll see his library stuffed with rare books, or his collection of unusual objects and antiques related to a historical era that has captivated him. These men often own their homes and tend to stay put in them for years – unless they are forced to move by external reasons like rising property taxes or a career opportunity too good to pass up.
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.
Even if a Capricorn man is attracted to you, you might have to make the first move. A Goat guy will often become close friends with a woman before considering a romantic relationship with her. This gives him a chance to really get to know her before he commits. Keep him interested by complimenting him with sincere praise and never tossing a wrench in his plans. Let him see you as a supportive partner as well as a love interest.
Trust your man. Capricorn men are known to take their love lives–like their jobs–very seriously. As such, your Capricorn will probably not be the cheating type. Once he has fallen for you, he will work hard to keep your relationship going. Though it takes Capricorn guys a while to open up, once he has made his decision about you, know that you have a very devoted guy by your side.
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.
The Goat is stubborn. Many Capricorn men wait until well into their 40s to settle down. He won’t marry until he’s reached a few of his major milestones: traveling Latin America, becoming a board-certified surgeon, selling his first business. A firm footing on his chosen life path gives him the confidence to commit.
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.
Generally they don’t. But, this is the type of generic question that often gets asked or answered whenever astrology is discussed. Individual experiences are then quoted back and forth as proof that Capricorn men do or don’t. Individuals get offended by general statements that don’t apply to them, and everything goes downhill fast. The diagram below shows the problem here:
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.
When it comes to official dating, a Capricorn man expects commitment and exclusivity. Proving you’re worthy of his trust is paramount to having a successful, long-term relationship with a Capricorn man. He likes to think of his partner as his own prize, and he doesn’t want her to show interest in anyone else. He’s also a bit traditional in that he’s not into public displays of affection. Plus, he doesn’t like his private life to become public knowledge. So, avoid gossiping or telling your friends all the private details of your relationship.
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.
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!
We’ve all heard the legendary tales of the guy who took a lowly position in a company sweeping floors as a teenager, and after many years of diligence, business savvy, and pure grit ended up owning the business. That’s Cap! These ingenious Goats love to fly beneath the radar or be a fly on the wall – quietly picking up bits of information as they push their brooms around, appearing to be nothing more than a mere grunt to higher-ups who don’t always watch what they say around the underlings. The long game takes immense patience, a deep and persistent faith, and a belief in their own ability to eventually get exactly where they want to go.
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.
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.
Attend some career-oriented functions. The first thing you should know about a Capricorn guy is that he is bound to be very driven. The best places to meet your perfect Capricorn guy include work functions, charity events, or career-boosting functions. Capricorn guys are dedicated to getting to the top of their industries, so putting on your game face and excelling at a career function is sure to help you capture your Capricorn’s eye.
If you are dating a Capricorn man, you probably had to ask him out. This man usually keeps to himself for the most part. He harbors deep, deep feelings, and is extremely selective when it comes to choosing those he opens up to. Don’t be too fooled by the cold, sober personality of the Capricorn man. Although introverted, he is strong emotionally and physically. He is one of the most determined Sun signs in the Zodiac. He is generally quiet in nature, but will have no problem holding a lengthy intelligent conversation if he feels like it. He is organized and pays attention to detail.
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.
Always respect special occasions and be as practical as you can. He can surprise by his openness for all sorts of weird things, but before you get to know him, it is best to stick to the traditional, historical, educational, useful gifts that can last for a very long time. He has an understanding for art with a lot of detail, small but expensive signs of affection, and likes things neat and to the point. Choose a present that makes sense, that’s probably the best way to put it.
Once he’s transcended his lowly station, a Capricorn man has to work hard to remember where he came from and stay somewhat humble – as it’s easy for the deadly combination of ego, power, and money to turn Mr. Goat into a bit of a tyrant. These men often end up in positions of power, moving from their rags-to-riches origins into positions where they have control and responsibility over many people. Government roles and work in finance often appeal to these lovers of stability, law, and order.
