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.
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.
They often have an intrinsic need to challenge themselves. Pessimistic by nature they sometimes have a slight inferiority complex or fear of failure, which drives them so hard to both succeed, and stand on their own two feet doing so. Respect, recognition and praise are important to them, as is their public image.
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.
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.
To get a complete picture of someone through astrology we need to take all those other planets and their interactions into account. To do this we need to create and interpret their unique natal chart. For information on what’s involved in this and the opportunity to obtain one for yourself and your partner please see the compatibility readings page.
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!!
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.
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.
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!
Play up the passion in the bedroom. While a Capricorn man might be reserved in his day to day life, he can be a surprisingly passionate lover in the bedroom. Capricorns have an excellent attention to detail that also makes them great lovers. Meet his passion with your own.
Your Capricorn man is likely to be a very adventurous lover, which may come as a surprise when compared to his otherwise restrained and stand-offish exterior. Contrary to his cool demeanor, he is remarkably playful in bed, and will prefer fun’ sex to the heavy or serious. He will also enjoy laughing in bed, and appreciate a sense of humor. Don’t be surprised if he suggests making love at either your place of work or his, it seems to be a common fantasy with Capricorns!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Ask anyone who knows a Capricorn man, and they’ll tell you he is ambitious, determined and down to earth. Success is his end-game, no matter what he sets his heart or mind to. Once committed, he can weather any storm to get what he wants and once achieved, he’ll work hard to keep it. If a Capricorn man has caught your eye, you’ll have to summon your courage and make the first move.
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:
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.
If you’ve decided that a Capricorn man is right for you, you’re probably in for a lengthy courtship before you finally win him over. The Goat builds and maintains a wall around himself, and you might find it almost impossible to breach. To learn how to get a Capricorn man to open up to you, get advice from a professional astrologer at Keen.com.
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.
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.
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 Aries woman and the Capricorn man will be successful in their careers and individual goals, but these two have few other traits in common. Aries may find Capricorn boring, and he’ll think she’s too erratic. They’ll both have to go against their nature a bit if their relationship can stand the test of time.
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.
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.
Dating a Capricorn man will be a long and difficult but incredibly rewarding process. They are dynamic and ambitious men who strive to be the best and are patiently determined to win. A Capricorn man doesn’t have time for anyone who’s needy or an obstacle to his success. So, a woman who’s her own person is perhaps the most attractive woman to a Capricorn man. It’s also important to note that possibly the best thing about a Capricorn man is they age in reverse. The older they get, the more fun they are. And since they’re in a relationship for the long-haul, this bodes well for their lucky partner.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
All Capricorns aren’t exactly alike. The major elements in their personalities are influenced by a number of astrological factors, including their rising sign. An individual’s rising sign changes every two hours and depends on the exact time of birth. An astrologer will take this into account when creating custom astrological charts for both you and your intended partner. This may help you discover amazing information about your compatibility. He or she may also turn to Tarot cards, numerology, and other tools and techniques.
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.
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).
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.
A Capricorns greatest strength is his ability to set goals and pursue them until attained. Nothing gets in the way of a Capricorn’s plans and ambitions, and they don’t like taking shortcuts or cheating as either devalues their later satisfaction.
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!
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.
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.
Hard as this is to swallow, you’ll need to carve out areas where he gets to be dominant. It may be the bedroom, or choosing where you live, or tolerating his boys’ nights out without interrogating him for details. Can you live with that? Our feminist principles recoil at the notion, but we also know that love comes with its own set of rules. Sometimes, a powerhouse diva just craves the arms of a big, strong man. Early childhood patterns figure in, too. As the zodiac’s father sign, the Capricorn man appeals to an only child, a daddy’s girl, or the daughter of an absentee/difficult father. You could either work out those issues with a therapist, or with him.
