The Capricorn Man Explained
Capricorn men seem to hide in lacquered shells made of the hardest of metals, reinforced by his life experiences. He does this so as to prevent someone from breaking his heart. That, or he's so absorbed in his own goals that he forgets about things like love.
A Capricorn man will generally act cold and detached towards something he feels has potential of getting in the way of his ambitions. If it's just going to hinder him, then he doesn't need it.
Reasons Capricorns Hide Their Emotions
- The first reason is because they want to block out anything that'll bring them down, whether in accomplishing something or just in general.
- The second reason is they're afraid of being hurt, so they hide inside their 'shell' for protection.
- The third reason is that they're so absorbed in their jobs and in achieving their ambitions that they forget about other things in life, like love.
Usually, they hide in their "shell" for the first two reasons, but it's not uncommon for it to be the third reason.
Regardless of your sign, you're going to have to get him to come out of his shell some way, and it will not be an easy task.
Just going off their sun signs, these two may only be attracted to each others' looks because they have almost nothing in common.
- Aries just want to experience the thrill that is life. It isn't rare for them to decide to do something and then not complete it. This is because it is generally very difficult for Aries to stay interested in a single subject. While Aries do have a modicum of ambition, they don't have the drive to finish what they start, nor do they care for planning out how they're going to achieve what they set out to do.
- The Capricorn, however, is the complete opposite. The Capricorn, from a young age, craves success. They live for accomplishments and are wired to be able to finish what they set out to do. Capricorns will plan out, to the tiniest detail, how they'll achieve their goals. They are very ambitious and if they start a project, they will plan out, step by step, how they will succeed. They work toward their goal, and usually, succeed. Only then do they move on.
- Aries doesn't pay attention to detail, nor do they care for meticulously planning out their lives because 'ain't nobody got time for that.' However, a Capricorn does.
- An Aries goes with the flow. A Capricorn will plan out how they go through the flow and will take each step as cautiously as possible.
- In addition, Aries might be a little bit too much for Capricorns to handle. An Aries is always thinking about what's going to happen next, which is also a reason why they don't finish what they start. As a result, the Aries might be a little bit too outgoing and quick-minded for Capricorns to handle. An Aries woman will likely not be able to give the Capricorn man the emotional security he needs.
- Aries will likely feel bogged down by the Capricorns' undeterred need to finish whatever they set out to do, which is never okay with Aries because they don't let anyone hinder them!
How It Could Work Out
- Aries can give Capricorns some hope and liveliness, something that a lot of Caps really need, and this also substitutes as emotional security for them, in a way.
- A Capricorn can teach an Aries the importance of organization and taking one step at a time. Something that they also really need.
All in all, these two are just going to have to learn how to tolerate and be patient of each other. If it's true love, then it'll find a way. Also take into consideration your charts as well.
Capricorns and Tauruses will likely be one of the most stable relationships in the zodiac.
When a Taurus sees him, she'll know just from looking at him that he's the one whom she has been searching for. She'll know immediately that this is the man who can provide her with the security she has longed for forever (from financial security and material security to everything else).
When a Capricorn sees her, he'll likely see a soul mate in her, but he'll also likely be too embarrassed to admit it. He'll admire her slow and steady approach to life, and he'll be happy to provide her with the security that she desires. A Taurus doesn't need to do anything but look at him for that icy reserve of his to break.

- In a way, they can both do a lot for each other. A Taurus in love will give to her partner at an inexhaustible rate, but she needs a bit of fuel from her partner. A Capricorn needs to understand this as he is very closed up about his emotions, and the only way for this to keep going is for him to be more verbal about his feelings, even if it's just a modicum.
- Capricorn is perfect for Taurus since these signs want security in all walks of life, and a Capricorn can easily provide that.
- Even when they're just friends, eventually, they'll become something more. I've seen a lot of Capricorns and Tauruses who started out as acquaintances at first, but eventually one of them started to crush on the other. It doesn't matter whether it's the Taurus or Capricorn, or whether the Taurus is a girl or the Cap is a boy or vice versa. Even when they're just friends, either Taurus will start to feel more about Cap because of his cool and calm approach towards life (which she feels could provide her with the security she seeks) or Capricorn will feel drawn to Taurus because of how comfortable she makes him. I've also personally experienced this myself a plethora of times over. It's like they're destined to be together.
- When these two are together, they don't even need words to communicate with each other. Physical gestures and looks in the eyes will be more than enough for these two.
- Do you remember how I said Tauruses needs fuel from their partner, like verbal showings of their love? That may end up being this relationship's undoing. Capricorns are men of a few words. We do not have the time nor do we really see the point in flaunting our love using words. So, we instead show it through our actions. A Taurus is bound to get a little annoyed by this, but she'll just have to learn to use his actions, rather than his words, as the "fuel."
- Capricorn needs to figure out how to make time for her in addition to his career, hobby, etc., otherwise the Taurus may get fed up and break it off. I once was in a relationship with a Taurus, and this is exactly how we ended up breaking up. I was just way too absorbed in my own hobbies that I wasn't making enough time for her, and she just got fed up.
- There are some things that a Taurus cannot divulge to her Cap. Sometimes, she just doesn't feel comfortable verbalizing what she wants, and this can jeopardize the relationship. Tauruses are also naturally stubborn. For a lasting relationship, the Taurus will need to learn how to verbalize, otherwise she might bring the relationship down without even realizing what she did to make it crumble.
- Is she just shy? Although shy Tauruses do exist, most of them are rather outgoing, in my experience. It's just that there are some things that they don't feel comfortable talking about.There's a difference.
Once these issues are out of the picture, this relationship will become as stable and strong as the Great Wall of China.
This is another one of those matches that have absolutely nothing in common.
- A Capricorn likes to follow a systematic path in life that's already been thought over and planned out a thousand times over. It is unusual for a Gemini to plot out what they're going to do because most Geminis don't really have any major goals. The Gemini, much like their counterpart, the Sagittarius, goes wherever the wind takes her. As a result, she has a rather erratic approach to life.
- Capricorns are always thinking of something new to accomplish. Seldom do they sit on their laurels after completing a task. For example, while anyone else might be satisfied with just knowing the basics of chess in order to play it casually, Capricorns will aspire to test their skill against the greatest chess players. A Gemini,however, is satisfied with knowing how to play the game, and once she figures it out, she will move on to something else.
- Also, a Gemini's mind moves way too fast for a Capricorn. Even without trying, she'll have his head spinning. This means the Gemini might feel that the Capricorn tries too hard.
How It Could Work Out
Capricorns could give Geminis consistency and Geminis could teach Capricorns how to not be so much of a buzzkill and learn how to have fun for once.
This relationship could work out if both are willing to conform a bit to one another. But, it would not be surprising if they end up just being friends. This relationship could especially work out if their charts had aspects about them that supported their compatibility.
There are a lot of articles that say how bad Capricorn and Cancer are as a pair, but I'm here to say that they are all wrong. There's so much to say about why this couple is so perfect that I'm afraid I'll confuse you along the way, so let's just start with the basics.
Do you know why Capricorn and Cancer are opposites? Because one follows the path of the father figure and the other follows the path of the mother figure. It is these opposites that make them so compatible and the relationship so fruitful.
A Capricorn just wants to go out there and make his mark on the world. He wants to be admired by the world at large as a pinnacle figure in society. To that end, he will climb the most treacherous of mountains in order to get there.
Capricorn is the sign of success, prosperity, and ambition. There's nothing more thrilling to a Capricorn than working their way towards a goal, succeeding, and then enjoying the fruits of their labor. They will endure anything in order to get there. Capricorns are the breadwinners of the zodiac.
Then you have Cancer, who is the homemaker of the zodiac.
What better relationship to have than the homemaker and the breadwinner together? This is a relationship that's likely to live by very old fashioned morals (depending on your charts), and you two blend so well together that supporting each other wouldn't provide that much of a challenge.
Capricorn provides the perfect home that Cancer, before meeting Capricorn, thought only existed in fairy tails, as well as giving her all the security her heart's desires. While Cancer is everything Capricorn wants in a wife.
I've seen some Caps and Cancers married for 50 to 60 years at a time, so there's no doubting the compatibility here.
For Cancer, Capricorn is everything she wishes she could be, but is too sensitive and emotional to be that. While Cancer is everything he wishes he could be, but is too afraid of rejection and showing their emotions (keep in mind that Caps find that showing emotions is a weakness).
And that's exactly why I think all those articles that talk down how good this relationship could be are so hilariously wrong.
There's nothing wrong with being attracted to someone on the opposite side of the karmic wheel. It's when you're opposite to someone else on the karmic wheel that you come to appreciate what the other person has that you don't, granted you get along.
There are two types of Capricorns when it comes to love, sex and the like: the dominant ones and the submissive ones.
However, when it comes to making sure that the peace in a house is kept and providing for said house, no matter which type of Cap they are, you can always be certain that they'll pull through.
I don't know if I made it clear/obvious enough, but Cancers want a man that will consistently provide for them, their house and their family. And ain't no one better at breadwinning than Capricorns. These signs will work tirelessly to make sure that they, and their loved ones, have everything they need.
Which for Cancer is a dream come true. And as if that wasn't drool-worthy enough, Capricorns will always make sure you have a shoulder to cry on. Sure, you might annoy them along the road, but once a Capricorn decides that you're the one for them, then unless something else gets in the way, nothing will deter their loyalty.
So, no matter how overbearing your mood swings are, he'll always be there.
In marriage, Capricorn wants a wife who'll stay home and give their children the best upbringing possible. I'm not saying that they're sexist (I mean some are, but the Caps that are sexist are extremely few in number) , and I would like to make that crystal clear; as clear as humanely possible. We would just prefer to be the ones to deal with that instead of our spouses; let them live in luxury, and all. Mind you though, if our spouse wanted to work as well, then we wouldn't say no.
But anyway, back to what I was saying--in this case, Cancer is the perfect person to provide this. It isn't rare for Cancer to dream about their children while they're still children.
One of the biggest problems they may face in this relationship is change. A Cancer's mood (which is gone over in full detail in my Everything Cancer article on my profile) changes as quickly as a bipolar hurricane. And it's not just their mood; it's everything else in their life too. Every now and then Cancer will want to change certain things in their life.
It can be something as big as what color paint their bedroom is. It can be as small as what flavor lolipop they get from the store every now and then.
Capricorns, however, are the complete opposite. They don't loathe change. They just honestly don't see the point in fixing something that's not broken. This sign will usually stick with the tried and the true. It's only when it's broken do they fix it. And no matter how extroverted or loud a Capricorn you know is, there are some situations where the shyness and old soul side of them pull through to the surface.
Cancer will just simply have to coerce them into seeing things their way the same way she got him to open up when they first started dating: sweetly and gently.
Even though they both make a rather harmonious relationship, in every cloud, there is a silver lining. While I generally talk down on those sites on the interdweb that talk down the bad this relationship is, that's only because they completely ignore all the potential this relationship has (which, unfortunately, is quite a lot of sites out there).
Now, as you know, in this pairing's most basic, it is made up of two opposites signs.
If, and only if they get into an argument (mind you, it likely won't be that heated), both of them will retreat into their shells. The reason I mentioned that it probably wouldn't be that heated is because these two are likely to not argue over petty things. It will likely be over something like why her Capricorn seems so distant about how he's feeling and why he can't be there more and/or why Cancer is always so dramatic about their emotions.
If/When this happens, one of them's going to have to be the bigger person. One of them is going to have to walk up to the other, and try to smooth things over. If it's Capricorn, he'll need to apologize and maybe offer a box of tissue and chocolate for her. If it ends up being Cancer doing the honors, she'll have to coerce him out of his shell and speak up about how he's feeling. Though, if the relationship has gotten to a certain stage where you two are living under the same roof (and I say this because you will literally never catch a Capricorn making a public display of his emotions, and if he does, I don't think I could come up with words to describe the anger in his heart. Cancer maybe, but not in a relationship), then I doubt this could deliver a severe blow to the relationship.
Though, if this argument doesn't take place at home but instead through text or email, and you guys don't live together, then it can't be difficult.
You two will have to learn how to communicate with each other. Without communication, this relationship is destined to fail. It's not like Taurus and Cap where you two can speak without words. You guys need to have a mutual understanding of how you're both doing. And for that to work. communication is all but key.
Also, one of the pitfalls you may face is that one of you is too cold and distant for the other to handle. This can push the other away, so be cautious.
Despite their obvious differences, these two make a surprisingly successful pair.
Both of them think of themselves as a step ahead of everyone else, though Leo is tad more snobbish about it, mind you.
Depending on the Capricorn you're dealing with Leo, he will either be very snobbish or very humble about his goals.
The Leo's friends will be wondering, "How the hell could someone so vivacious and overly confident about themselves down to tiniest strand of hair on those long braids of hers be attracted to a man that's so studious to the point that he's not even aware of what's going on around him, prudish, old fashioned and stuck in his old ways?"
The Capricorn's friends will be wondering, "How could a penny pinching prude like him that only cares about his job, what it demands, and meeting those demands, be attracted to a girl that's so pomp and out there?"
Well, astrology has the answers, and I am here as the relayer of those answers, so let's get started.
Now, before we begin, I'm not saying that those obvious differences and loopholes that could threaten the relationship are wrong. I mean, they're not, to be honest.
It's true that Capricorn and Leo yearn for dominance in their life, but they both have very different approaches towards getting their. Capricorn thinks that, in order to get to the top of whatever mountain they climb, be it the CEO of a company they work at, the Senior Attorney of a Law Firm they work at, or the President of the United States, you have to work for it.
They are willing to work countless hours to get where they need/want to go, and their work ethic shouldn't be underestimated.
Their motto is: If you don't want to work for it, then you don't deserve it.
Leo, however, is the complete opposite. Leo thinks that they should just be given the Head B in Charge status on a silver platter. And while other's may overlook them due to their pompous, arrogant attitude, I'm sorry to say that the Leo truly does deserve the status that they desire.
Leo's are natural leaders, so wasting that just because you dislike their pomp is foolish.
Still, despite their differing approaches to social status and overall power in whatever they seek out, these two can definitely help each other to get to where they want/need to be. Capricorn can help the Leo plan out how she will make her way towards being the HBIC, instead of simply asking for the status. He can help keep her eyes on the prize, with his methodical back up.
Meanwhile, Leo can teach Capricorn how to have fun and what he's missing out on, being center stage and all. She can also give him a boost up the social ladder of success, since Leo has such an adamant circle of friends. Also, Leo has plenty of useful information, and know's stuff that Capricorn could only hope to find out about.
So these two can/will end up being very successful together.
If they do end up being just friends that help each other out or business partners, it wouldn't be surprising. It'd be pretty sad, for sure, but still shocking.
If these two manage to make it into a relationship, they may have a lot of problems.
Leo likes to be in the limelight. They live for it, they yearn for it, every move they make is to get into that spotlight. And it is this limelight, this desire to be the center of attention, that keeps their fire going. Without that thrill of being center stage that Leo craves so, the Lion will likely find itself in a cesspool of anguish, which might lead them to be very aggressive. And duck with the lion, and you just might get the claw.
They may go to extremes like robbing a bank or even committing adultery just to get that attention that they need.
It's not that Leos are attention whores. An attention whore is someone who wants attention for no practical reason at all other than for the sake of having it (see: Kim K and her Break the Internet stunt *rolls eyes*).
But Leos aren't like that. You know how people will gather around a bonfire to get warm? Well ,Leo is that bonfire that people gather around. What do you think would happen if that bonfire was left unchecked? Would it burn out? Or would it go out of control and destroy everything in its path?
In Leo's case, its almost certainly the latter.
Capricorn, however, is the complete opposite. Capricorns are extremely shy and reserved creatures that don't just openly share whatever's going on inside of them. In fact, attention scares them.
If anything, Capricorn just prefers to watch from the sidelines.
Now I know what you're thinking, "Why can't Cap just be there to support Leo?"
If it was that simple, I wouldn't even be saying that this would be a problem.
If a Capricorn had to choose between going out and staying in, they'd almost certainly choose the latter, like Cancer, their opposite sign.
I mean, it could work out if Leo could learn to be okay with her Cap not being there all the time, but such a feat is a little bit on the impossible side. If a Leo expects you to be at her play on Saturday eve at 6:00PM, then they will expect you to be there. If they want you to come with them to the club at an ungodly hour every Friday night so you can both get as drunk as inhumanely possible all night, then they'll want you to be there.
But it is not an easy task to force a Capricorn into doing something when they've settled in. At that point, they want nothing but to do nothing.
And Leo, don't even think about bringing a party into your home, at least an unsophisticated one. Their home is sacred, and anything that they deem an affront to the tranquility of their home is prohibited.
Oh yes, this reminds me. Another problem these two may face is power struggles at home. It may be something as simple as what they'll watch on TV. Leo might want to watch Jersey Shore, but Capricorn wants to watch Kamen Rider.
It may be something big like Capricorn wanting fried turkey for Thanksgiving, but Leo advising against it.
These two will have to learn how to make nice and compromise, otherwise this relationship is destined to fade into evanescence.
I'm not even sure an article is necessary to go over how awesome this relationship, but why not?
There's no doubting the sparks that'll go off immeadiately once they meet each other. When they look at each other, they'll see everything they could ever dream of in a partner.
When Virgo looks at Capricorn, she'll see a practical man, with aspirations, goals, ambitions, a head on his shoulders, someone with a plan and not just frivolous fantasies with no legit certainty of it actually happening.
When Capricorn looks at Virgo, he'll see someone that can provide for him, his house, and the people in it, the perfect person to raise their children while he goes out in the world making his ambitions come true, a homemaker, a very supportive woman, someone who might actually possess the ability to untie the knots if they ever got close.
While these two signs are naturally very shy and reserved creatures, one of them may find themselves asking the other out.
Allow me to make a list of these similarities:
- Work Ethic: Both are very hardworking and will put tens of hours to achieve their goals.
- Intelligent: These two are both highly intelligent, and may even be so from a very young age, however, Virgo may be a tad more talkative in their intellect then Capricorn.
- Both are creatures of what lies inside and not out. These two, on the outside, might both seem very cool, clam, and collected, but inside, they might be thinking about a million things at once. Inside, they're completely different people
- Both of you aren't that needy emotionally
- Both of you would rather spend time at home than going out partying
- You both are very organized (but Virgo may be more so than Capricorn, and vice versa).
- You both hate public displays of affection, outside of holding hands, but that's it.
- You both will never give up on the other and will always be there for each other
There's a lot more, but yeah, it's clear you guys have a lot in common.
If you're a Virgo:
Now Virgo, I know he might seem really detached and somewhat cold on the outside, but if you look inside, you'll find that he has a heart as fiery as lava and as beautiful, bright, and pure as gold.
He may be a little slow to open up, but give him time. This man will sometimes need time and space to get away from it all and go into introspect, but once he opens up, you'll be glad that he did.
If a Capricorn tells you, "I love you," if he's even trying to open up to you, then it's not superficial. He genuinely means it with all his gushing red heart.
So please, don't fret over the little things. Don't overthink or overanalyze. Trust in him, and you won't regret it.
Also, don't be afraid to approach him. This man loves a woman who will go out of their way to do the honors. It shows tenacity.
Flirt with him in the most sensual way possible. That shouldn't be too hard for you, considering Virgos are surprisingly very flirtatious.
But for fuck's sake, if you're going to flirt with him, then actually mean it. Please don't lead him on. He doesn't deserve that at all, and plus you'll only be doing nothing but drive himself further into his shell. This man has likely been teased, flirted, and played like Prince (Rogers Nelson's) guitar only to be screwed over so many times in his life.
So please, for the love of God, if you're going to flirt with him, then PLEASE mean it.
Also, save the displays of affection for when you're alone, preferably at home. Unless you want him to run away and never see him again, then go ahead.
If this man starts "drifting". If he stops talking to you for some reason, then please, and I want you take this very, VERY seriously: don't worry about it at all. Like I said, he needs time to himself sometimes. This doesn't mean that he doesn't love you, not at all. And if you're really concerned, then I would suggest going up to him personally. Emails, texts, calls, etc. won't do a thing.
In fact, you might find he appreciates it. Like I said, they love a girl who's tenacious about getting to know them.
Don't fall for that cold and distant act. If you love him chase him.
And again, with this sign, you must be patient. If you're trying to win a Cap Man's heart but don't want to be patient, you might as well give up on him. Because with this man, you have GOT to be patient. But, take solace in the fact that they're worth it.
If you're a Capricorn:
This girl will often put up walls and play mind games on you to see if you're the one. It's her way of testing you, and Capricorns are pretty ducking awesome at tests.
If this girl has any sense at all, she'll realize that all her tests, analyzing, and mind games were all for nothing; a complete waste of time at that.
If not, you can keep playing along Cap. It ain't recommended, but do what you want.
One of the biggest pitfalls these two might face is getting those sparks in the bedroom started. These two are so shy, reserved, and inhibited that it may be hard for them to get going in between the sheets. But one side's gonna have to give at some point, and whichever one does will inevitably get those sparks going.
Like the Cap/Leo pairing, it can be hard to understand what would draw these two together.
Capricorn is so cold and distant to the point of prissy prudishness; never thinking about anything else than attaining his own goals.
Libra, however, is the opposite. Libra is a very vibrant and vivacious type of girl, with the airiness and elegance as the girl on the right.
Usually, Libra would just float away into the sky, like scattering flower petals in the wind, but instead, she decides to stick around. Libra's enjoy finding positives in the negatives of a person, almost like a hobby. It's only when the Libra is unable to find any positives in someone's negatives do they "float away."
Out of all the signs, as ironic as it might be, she'll probably have the least trouble figuring this man out.
She'll be able to see past his cold and distant exterior with an unbiased approach and discover a man with one helluva sense of humor, some awesome life goals, and a nice dream for a family. Something that would take signs that are compatible with them quite a long while.
It's this sign that can figure them out the easiest.
This is because Libra takes an unbiased approach towards anything and everything in her life, which enables her to see past whatever facades Capricorn might put up.
And if he strengthens his defenses, it still won't be enough.
All Libra has to do is go Lu Fengxian on his arse and those walls will start crumbling quicker than a sandcastle hit by a torrent of water.
1. Shower him with compliments.
Bam! There goes one brick.
2. Give him support and emotional security.
Bam! There goes several more.
3. Kiss him on the cheek with your hand propped on his knees behind closed doors.
Bam! And there goes one of the most formidable walls a zodiac sign could ever hope to put up to protect him/herself.
At that point, Capricorn won't be able to help himself anymore that he feels inclined to ask her out. Something not a lot of signs can do.
Now see, what I think people could learn a lot from us [Capricorns] is that if you look past the exterior, you'll find one hell of a person.
No one's better at exploiting who someone is beyond the exterior than the Libra.
One thing Libra will have to understand is that, like Scorpios, we, Capricorns, have a very strong sense of who we are, our place in the world, etc.
Just when you think you've figured him out, you may have only discovered a fraction of who he is. Yes, there are some men out there who not even your unbiased eyes can see into, Libra.
This aspect of him will either drive or push her further towards/away from him. But if it's true love, it will find a way, somehow.
Libra Women are perhaps some of the most beautiful women that have ever walked this Earth. But what's really beautiful? They're not arrogant about it.
To underestimate a Libra's ability to charm a man into doing what she wants would be a grave mistake.
She could coerce a man to jump into a pool of sharks, and make even the most rigid of men fall down on their knees.
But, there is one man who her charm could never work on: a Capricorn man.
If you two disagree on something, just remember, Libra, that with this man, you have to pick your battles with him. You'll just end up angering yourself trying to drag it on further. Sometimes, we [Capricorns] can be very opinionated that even someone who's a master of charming and seducing men like yourself, Libra, may just end up frustrating themselves.
I know, it sucks. But, if you love him, then don't you think it'd be worth it making the effort?
These two will only need to take one look at each other, and they both will have each other figured out already. Of course, they aren't going to make it obvious. These two keep their emotions under lock and key at all times. But believe me when I say, the attraction is definitely real here.
These two are sort of slow to commit, but once it starts clicking, it's a tall order to unclick them. A lot like a seatbelt that's been superglued into its buckler. Scorpio will probably start clicking an iota faster than Capricorn though, since he's more stubborn and cautious with his emotions (yes there is such a thing), so Scorpio will likely do the honors. Of course, luring such a man out of his shell won't really be that much of a challenge for Scorpio, mind you.
Scorpios live for seeking out the hidden truth in everything. Even when everyone around her seems utterly convinced, she's still debating in her mind whether that claim is actually solid or not.
And when discovering the truth seems like a challenge, to think Scorpio would just give up in the face of a challenge would not be the wisest thing to do. They like a challenge. It's the thrill of the challenge in discovering the truth that makes Scorpio such adamant truth seekers.
These guys practically bask in the truth, lol.
While Capricorn might seem cold, distant, detached and only concerned about his own goals, Scorpio knows that deep down, he wants/needs love just as much as anyone else. She knows that, deep down, he needs/wants someone to confide in, someone who he can divulge practically anything to. But she also knows that there is an innate fear within him that makes him unable to divulge anything about his emotions, and the emotional scars he's carried over so many a year.
Knowing this, Scorpio approaches him.
At first, Scorpio's (or any woman who approaches him, for that matter) gentle tenacity in getting to know him will simply make him retreat further into its shell, like a pond turtle who goes back into the safety of the water after being noticed basking by someone/something that isn't its brethren.
While to others, it might seem like nothing they do to make him open up will move him an inch, But Scorpio knows that her persuasions moved him more than the Nankaido earthquake. She isn't foolish enough to fall for such a ploy. She knows how happy that compliment made him she doesn't even need to think twice about it.
And so, Scorpio continues to coerce him out of his ivory tower even further. And eventually, the goat comes out of its lacquered titanium shell.
Now see, other than Scorpio's being the most driven truth seekers in the zodiac, there is something else about them that makes someone as prudish as Capricorn come out of his shell. And that is the fact that a Scorpio will never let you be shy around them. Ever. Especially when they're intrigued by someone and what lies behind their exterior. A Scorpio Woman in love will chase their crush to the ends of the Earth to get them to like her. She loves the thrill of the chase, and as if that wasn't convincing, her tenacity is probably the most peerless out of all the signs (there's a reason why her polarity lies with Taurus). So if a Scorpio has their sights on you Capricorn, you're already hers. You just don't know it yet.
However, Scorpio isn't that easy to get either, but for Capricorn, it'll be much a lot more simpler if it ends up being them doing the honors. Hell, he might attract her without even realizing what he did. Those sparkling eyes and that godly smile could melt anyone's heart. Though, again, he really doesn't know how much of a lady killer he can be sometimes.
But, when there's light, there is darkness.
Capricorns need their alone time sometimes, you see. It's absolutely sacred to them. Scorpio, however, is very possessive of their loved ones. She might think that he is cheating on her, and refuse to let him have his alone time.
But this would be a grave mistake, on Scorpio's part.
Capricorn would never cheat on their mate. I'm a Capricorn, and I had trouble typing that sentence: "She might think he's cheating on her." "Cheat" is such a ghastly word and an affront to our senses. Literally, it's like a century old flower that shriveled up and died.
But see, the problem itself is that Scorpio doesn't know this because he just up and disappeared for no apparent reason, without saying anything.
Capricorn, pro-tip, if you're going to disappear for no reason at all for some R&R, please fucking tell your Scorpio girl first. At least make it doubly clear that you love her, and that your heart lies with her, and only hers first. Because when/if a Scorpio feels crossed, she will leave you with a venom so potent that even after you start to get over it, you can still feel the after effects.
Another problem are those occasional fights because of how stubborn they are. Like literally, they're so alike in that aspect, it's mutual, though they both have different types of stubbornness, mind you, but it still feels mutual nonetheless.
But these fracases really aren't any cause for concern. They know the necessity of keeping their relationship strong as the positives are so beneficial for both of them that anything like this can easily be smoothed over by the both of them.
There are still a helluva lot of benefits though, despite those clouds here and there. These two can help each other so much in a lot of ways that other zodiac sign couplings could only dream of. You know how I spoke of them already knowing who they were just by looking at each other? It's because of this that, once they decide to commit, they will be able to help them out in ways unimaginable.
The Capricorn, as prudish, cold and distant as he is from the outside world, will find his sensitivity enhanced by the Scorpio. And that alone is pretty mother ducking impressive because to make this man, of all the signs, become more attuned with his own feelings--literally any other sign wouldn't even bother because it's too much of a drag.
Scorpio will find his godlike wisdom, foresight, planning, among other things a godsend. It's these qualities about Capricorn that will help ground and stabilize Scorpio a lot more
She will find his knowledge and devout interest about one particular thing very intriguing. You know that moment in Spider Man 3 where Peter was just going on and on and on and on and on and on and on about the science behind something that Mary Jane was concerned about and she just said, "You're such a nerd."
In that case, Mary Jane was the Scorpio, and Pete was the Capricorn. Of course, canon wise, they weren't Scorpio and Capricorn. but in that particular scene, her reaction towards Pete about that is very similar to how a Scorpio would respond to her Capricorn in that kind of a situation.
Scorpio and Capricorn is such an amazing relationship because these two support each other so much, in every way possible. Capricorn is the Earth that is always expanding for the water that it holds.
Sexually, Scorpio will get her Capricorn clicking a lot faster than the other signs could.
But again, when there's light, there is darkness.
You know how I was talking about the possessiveness the Scorpio may sometimes exhibit in her relationship with the Capricorn? Yeah, well, Capricorn isn't an exception.
Capricorn, in his free time, just wants to be at home, away from all the troubles of the real world.
Scorpio, however, is a very independent creature. Sometimes, the scorpion has to come out of its burrow for some stimulation.
Capricorn may not allow this, however, since, for all he knows, she could be going out for a one night stand with some other man under the pretense of going "shopping".
Capricorn will just need to trust in Scorpio that she isn't going to do anything to hurt him. Because she isn't, she really isn't. Like yourself, my fellow Capricorn, Scorpios loathe the thought of cheating on their loved one.
If she was that kind of girl, she wouldn't be so possessive over you disappearing without even saying anything.
Scorpio will have to put in a bit of effort to reassure their Cap that there is no other man in their life but them.
Also, this brings me to the next thing. Like with Cancer, the only way this relationship will stay successful is for consistent communication. Like with Cancer, communication is vital to keep the flames of love going between these two. Without it, this relationship is doomed to fail. But take solace in the fact that communication won't be as much as a chore if you were dating, say, a Cancer (and I say this because Cancers and Caps get into arguments quite a bit more than one would like).
Even the slightest inhibitions in one of them might cause their flames to get doused. So keep the communication going!
This relationship, just going off their sun signs, will likely crumble over time. Unlike Leo/Cap where the two could work around their differences, these two have so little in common that it would be extremely difficult to work around their differences.
Sagittarius is all about travel.
Capricorn is all about the home.
Sagittarius is all about freedom.
Capricorn is the same, but there are some things in life that they think should be controlled by rules or boundaries.
Sagittarius is all about meeting people.
Capricorn is not interested in having an enormous amount of friends, however. Rather, we would prefer just a couple of close friends as opposed to meeting several people different people. Not only does it stress us out, talking to every single ducking person we come across, but for a Cap to do that, would require quite a bit of persuasion as we're not open about who we are, our feelings, etc. as the extroverts of the zodiac, and Sagittarius is living proof of that.
Sagittarius is a "wing it" kind of person.
Capricorn, however, would prefer following a path that is assured success instead of just, "winging it."
Sagittarius is probably the most optimistic, most carefree out of all the signs (if it wasn't apparent enough already).
Capricorn, however, is very cool and calm and collected, with a detached exterior as cold as ice.
The latter will likely bore the former with him always doing the tried and the true and shite. The former will just make Capricorn feel insecure, since a Sagittarius will usually leave without a trace, and it can even make Capricorn feel neglected.
Sagittarius will likely not be all that interested in uncovering what truly lies beyond his exterior. She's too worried about her next adventure.
The Sagittarius loves to meet new people, go to parties, and have fun. You know that girl at the party who looks more wasted, wild, crazy, and out there than half the people there? Yep. That's a Sagittarius, alright. This sign is sort of hard not to notice.
The Capricorn might feel embarrassed to be in a relationship with them.
Of course, nothing is impossible. You guys should stop fighting over who's more despicable and actually learn from each other.
But the pitfalls these two face might be a little too much, unless their Sun, Moon, and Rising says otherwise.
Saw a lot of people wanting a sect of this, so here it is :)
Two signs with similar likes, dislikes and interests is bound to be a OTP. There are bound to be few quarrels between them because they're so similar that, in love, it can easily be smoothed over.
It'll take one of them a while to make the first move, but once one of them gets those fires going, it'll be hard to douse them.
Honestly there isn't a lot to say because you're both so similar that there'll hardly be any problems. But if anyone wants me to add something, hmu in the comments :)
This girl makes him nervous, and he NEVER gets nervous. Even the ones who are submissive in between the sheets hardly make this apparent when out and about. He never knows what she'll do next. It's like trying to predict which side a coin will land on if you flip it or playing one of those uber intense guessing games (see: Hunter x Hunter and that episode where Killua's butler has them play a game to see if they could figure out where the coin was).
There's something about her unpredictability that really intrigues him.
This is one of those matches where opposites attract.
Capricorn usually isn't one to go for a girl as spontaneous as Aquarius. He would prefer a girl who's a little bit more traditional, or smthg along those lines. In any case, what they usually look for in a girl is never apparent in an Aquarius.
But Capricorn senses that inside, she has a hidden sagacious knowledge of sorts that she has under lock and key. And so, he secretly admires her for it. If/When they get into a literal relationship, Capricorn will likely find himself surprised at how much respect she has for his family and the elegance in which she runs their home.
However, the Aquarian's aloofness may humiliate him.
A Capricorn in a relationship will be concerned mainly with how they will run their home, who will raise the children, how will the children be raised, what neighborhood would be most beneficial for us to start a family in, etc. They're main concern is their home life, their future as a couple, the upbringing of their kids, etc.
They're concerned about the concrete things, you see. Aquarius may find herself controlled by this, however, and as a result will feel as though something is missing.And if an Aquarius feels like something is missing, then there probably is something missing.
But, in this pairing's defense, the Aquarian is very well aware of her Capricorn's moodiness and she knows exactly how to make him feel better as she was probably a Capricorn in a past life.
However, these two will have a shit-ton of differences as well.
He doesn't want to fix something that isn't broken.
She's always coming up with ways to improve certain things.
Aquarius is the wildcard.
Capricorn will want to play it safe, usually.
Aquarius's are creatures that live, breath, and literally exhume freedom.
Capricorns, however, will want to lead a secure lifestyle, at the risk of this "freedom"
This can make Capricorn come off as rather drab and boring to the Aquarian while she can come off as illogical. They're both going to step out of their comfort zones to make it work. I mean, it's possible for this relationship to work out exceedingly well.
But they're both going to need to give a little to get a little, if you feel my flow.
Aquarius's are so adept at making them seem like they're oh, so submissive, but really, it was their idea all along. They just tricked you into thinking it was your idea, ahahaha.
Sneaky? Hell yeah, but it don't mean a thang. I mean, obviously, otherwise you wouldn't be attracted to her.
Another problem is the Aquarian girl wanting to work. Capricorn Men wouldn't say no if their girl wanted to get a job, but there are some Caps that are so ducking stuck in the 1950s that they just can't. Hunny, Aquarian Girls are pioneers among women. They need to have a purpose. They weren't made to just sit around the house and follow EVERYTHING their husband tells them to do like some mangy ass cur.
If you have a Cap like this, tell him it's not the mother ducking 1800s anymore, and to grow up and get the fuck over it, in the most hilarious way possible. He'll be too busy laughing to make a counter.
Also, that's another thing. Aquarius's are so hilariously funny. Her mind is like a bunch of cogs, gears, and wires that aren't really oiled that much, so they're a little cray. Even in the worst situations like a nuclear bomb attack in your area, she'll be the only one able to make a joke out of it all.
The Aquarian's ability to make a joke in dire straits should never be underestimated.
The one major thing that they may want to blow each other's heads off over is the Aquarius's need for change.
It can be about anything and everything: changing the paint color in their room, buying a bigger TV after just getting one a week ago, getting a new couch, more pillows, more pets, getting rid of her mother's cherished galbanum perfume because it smells like a 1000 year old carcass, making up new ways to play the game chess, coming up with ways to change quantum physics, replacing their chandelier lined with topaz.
Lmfao, I could be here all day making a laundry list of shite. Aquarians are always, always, ALWAYS looking for a way to make something better. To that end, they'll change it.
This can annoy Capricorn, but Cap, my friend, don't waste your time. Aquariuses are fixed signs, after all. Fixed signs are the most stubborn signs in the zodiac. They don't want to follow, and they don't really need to lead either. They just do whatever they goddamn please, because they don't give a fuck.
Cardinal signs, however, not only WANT to lead, but they NEED to lead. They need to feel like they have at least a modicum of authority.
The good news is that Aquarius are the most changeable out of all the fixed signs in the zodiac (granted they don't have any Capricorn or Taurus in their rising or moon, otherwise they're just about screwed).
If you guy's want a good idea of how a Cap Man and Pisces Woman settle their differences and get along, watch Ressha Sentai Toqger's Episode 7, and you'll get a pretty good idea.
These two have a lot of differences that make a relationship between them to other people seem impossible.
Capricorn is a solid man with a plan, and a sound head on his shoulders to get him there.
Pisces however, is unconcerned with the affairs of the real world. She is more concerned about her own inner journey.
Capricorn Man is a realist.
Pisces Girl is an idealist.
But it is these differences that attract them toward each other.
Capricorn Man and Pisces Girl might be different in how they think, but that's where the differences stop tbh.
Pisces's innocent charm will immeadiately make the Capricorn come out of his shell. He might not even realize it himself.
Pisces, just give him as much emotional security and support and shower him with compliments, and he'll be your's. And don't forget that innocent smile of lore!
These two can help each other in many ways. Capricorn will give his life to defend his Pisces from the cruelty of the real world and ground her for once, while Pisces can give Capricorn plenty of emotional security and make him open up on a level he never thought possible.
Also, Capricorn, if you're worried about opening up to her, then watch Ressha Sentai ToQger's Episode 26. It's pretty obvious who's the Cap and who's the Pisces (Kagura = Pisces and Akira = Capricorn).
You see how happy Kaugra is when Akira puts his inhibitions and serious exterior to the side? And do you see how well they compliment each other? C'mon now.
One of the pitfalls they might face, however, is Cap's inability to share his thoughts/feelings. Pisces's spaciness, oversensitiveness, among other things can/may drive them up a ducking wall. While Pisces will feel hurt because he's unwilling to tell her anything, and this can come off as blatant cruelty.
It's not that Capricorn is intentionally being mean, but when he responds to her pleas with calm indifference, like it didn't bother him at all that she felt genuinely hurt, this can come off as cruelty to Pisces, whether he meant to be or not.
But Pisces is too good for that, you see. Pisces has an innate ability to see through anyone like a clear sheet of glass, much more than she makes herself out to be. It is all but too easy for her to see through that lonely shell that he hides in. She knows that he wants love as much as anyone, but is too afraid to come out and say it. She knows how much he has been hurt in his life, which is why he's afraid to put his faith in someone again, especially in something as serious as a relationship.
And as Capricorn continues to be indifferent to her and wallow in depression and loneliness, all this is doing is making her love him more. Because, even if he doesn't know it, she feels that they are intertwined by fate. She feels needed by him, even if he doesn't know it, and this makes her feel confident.
Even when he's indifferent, as much as it hurts Pisces, she knows that she can't give up on him. I mean, he needs her. She needs him.
Capricorn is pretty much every Pisces's dream partner. He can provide her with the stability that she has yearned for so long. He can make her dreams become reality, and this makes her more confident in everything she does. And while Pisces appreciates that he is a man of action in expressing his feelings for her (or anyone else, for that matter), she can't help but want a little more. She can't help but want him to show it verbally. But this is a tall order, so tall that it may happen only every few years or so, unfortunately.
The biggest pitfall these two will face is both of their emotional problems.
Pisces is sensitive while Capricorn is generally insensitive.
Sometimes, Pisces's chaotic emotions, like with Cancer, may drive him up the fucking wall and cause even him to lose his patience.
Meanwhile, Capricorn's apathy to her and how she's feeling may make her feel unloved. And an unloved Pisces is NEVER a good thing.
Pisces needs to know how much he loves her every chance he can muster, but Capricorn is a man of a few words, you see. They think that, when it comes to love, actions deffo speak louder than words. And whether or not that person notices his hints is left to their imagination.
Capricorn may feel as though anything he says or does towards her will just end up hurting her, and cause him to retreat into his shell. This makes him unable to open up to her anymore, thus.
Pisces will still rage like the indecisive tornado that she is, and this will make Cap think that she's just avoiding the issues at hand.
He lacks romance in his life because while he was too busy in the 7th grade planning out how he would become the Governor of Washington State (not literally; it's just an example), he completely forgot about all the funner things about life. And love, was one of those things. But the good news is that you, Pisces, have the ability to provide what he lacks.
In order to keep the fires of this relationship going, you both need to learn how to deal with each others emotional problems. If you can manage that, then this relationship will last for years to come.
What Are Capricorn Men Like in Bed?
In bed, you might be surprised at how raunchy and lusty the goat is. Once they've let go all their inhibitions, there's no holding back.
Like I said earlier, there are two types of Capricorn men and how they are in bed: they are either very submissive or very dominant.
The Submissive One is the hardest nut to crack since they seem so shy that even pulling their pants off is a challenge.
But don't be deterred. If you need handcuffs or ropes or whatever, then don't hesitate in using them. The submissive ones want to be dominated. They want to feel like their body is being taken over. Just lay off on the violence and BDSM. If you're looking for that kind of thing, then maybe you should try an Aries or a Gemini.
Also, you may find the submissive one is more open about how he feels during sex, but not in an excessively dirty way. Much like a bleating goat, he will moan and groan a lot.
The dominant ones—well, there's not a lot to say about them since they're quite self explanatory.
But both the dominant and submissive ones moan and groan a lot. Unlike other signs, they aren't afraid of moaning at the cost of their manhood.
If it feels good, there's nothing wrong with being blatant about it.
And if you're really curious, look up Lee Stone (don't ask who he is; just do it if you want to know).
Why Does My Capricorn Man Keep Drifting Away?
When a Capricorn "drifts," it means he is withdrawing from the outside world temporarily to think and mull over his thoughts. It doesn't mean he doesn't love you. If he has opened up to you (even the in the tiniest bit) or said before that he loves you/finds you attractive, he genuinely meant it with everything he had.
True love will always find a way, so please be patient. I promise he will come back. You just have to believe in him. If you can't find it in yourself to believe and be patient with him, then you might as well give up on him and every other Capricorn man on the planet.
Is There Anything I Can Do to Make Him Open Up?
Give him as much emotional security as you can muster and it'll only be a matter of time before he's yours.
Even when he's drifting or acting aloof, detached, and/or cold, don't give up on him. In order for him to open up, you have to be patient, tenacious and give him as much emotional security as possible.
Shower him with compliments every day of the week. He not only needs to hear it, but he wants to hear it. This man secretly wants to be admired by everyone, so complimenting him will definitely go a long way. And if he acts like it didn't faze him, don't fall for it at all. Inside, he's as giddy as a schoolgirl.
You have to remember that the Capricorn would sacrifice the world if it meant protecting himself from getting screwed over.
Cao Cao, who was probably a Capricorn, once said, "I would rather betray the world, then let the world betray me."
And what he said, is literally every Capricorn down to the tiniest atom of their being.
It might seem cowardly, but if you knew how much shit Caps have been through, you'd probably do the same thing.
The Secret Desire of the Capricorn Man in Love
What every Capricorn Man wants as far as love is to be chased. They may act cold, aloof, distant, and stuffy, but they want/need love as much as anyone. Their behavior might mean they're too afraid to love again, too introverted, or both.
