10 Things to Remember While Loving a Capricorn

Capricorn is one of the earth signs, known for their traits like being complete workaholics, loyal, passionate and somewhat reserved too. Loving them can be a bit tricky because they not only take their chances to open up to you, but also choose very specifically who gets to have their time and efforts. Being committed means a great deal to them, so they don’t just waste their time and feelings on just anyone.

When it comes to something as complex as love, everyone has their demands. Each one of us is equipped with different mentalities. That makes our preferences for the person we choose to share our life with very, immensely. If you get to know what these preferences are, it will make it all the easier and straightforward for you to approach the one you love and probably start a serious relationship with them.

Knowing the basic traits of each sign, astrology lays out a pretty clear map of these preferences in each of the signs, things they like to have in the one they choose to commit to.

Read below to find out some ways of how to love your Capricorn, what ticks them off, what sets their moods, how to win their hearts enough that they open it up to you and how to get the best out of a relationship with a Capricorn.

1. What Capricorns ask for from their partner

Capricorn is among one of the most responsible and mature signs of the zodiac. They often feel the whole weight of the world on their shoulders, knowing what needs to be done in just the right. They see what needs to be ordered when no one else does, and that makes them quite intense workaholics.

They really don’t waste those efforts if they don’t see you equally interested in the relationship. So what they ask from a partner is a sense of responsibility. Don’t play around with a Capricorn; it totally goes against all they stand for. Furthermore, even though they might not realize these themselves, but a Capricorn often looks for a fun side to the one they choose to be in a relationship with. 

That is to say, they will love it when you not only show how responsible you are but also make them laugh, experience the world with you and lift some of the weight of their shoulders. If you manage to provide them such a respite, you will most likely win their heart right away.

2. How they express their love

Where most people believe in wooing their partners with flowery words and a lot of pretences, Capricorns are among the rare kind of people who believe and truly live up to the maxim of actions speaking louder than words. They only say what they mean, emotions being paramount to their words rather than empty words and promises.

So they might not make grand declarations of their feelings of love and care for you. They will show you, by their actions. When you don’t hear them say loving things as much as you would like, don’t make the mistake of assuming they don’t love you. Give them the chance to show you instead, in their own time. Besides, just because someone doesn’t express their love for us with words and such, doesn’t imply they don’t love us with all they have.

3. Who are Capricorns most compatible with

Above all else, Capricorns find it very easy to commit to someone who appreciates and accepts their grave sense of duty, their love for their work and how sometimes they often put it before everything else but at the same encourages them to take a break without giving the wrong idea. Keeping this in mind, signs like the appreciate Cancer; the reliable Taurus, the loyal Virgo and the balance-loving Libra are most compatible with Capricorn.

On the other hand, signs like Gemini and Sagittarius will bring out the fun and excitement into a Capricorn’s life but their flightiness might tick them off.

4. How to make Capricorns open up

Being very practical and serious people, Capricorns take a lot of time to open up. They need to be completely sure if you are really dependable and responsible about the relationship as they are. Unlike other signs, they are not impulsive at all, nor do they just fall head over heels for someone and have very specific goals for their relationship.

Therefore, if you want them to open up, you need to assure them of your reliability, seriousness about the relationship and your true intentions about being committed to them.

5. What turns them on

Even though Capricorns come off as the serious, mature types that are not to say they have a dull personality altogether. Being an earth sign, after all, they are very physical creatures too. That means they like to be practical and not just that but skilful too in the physical side of their relationship. Doing things like reading the Kama Sutra, trying out new techniques in bed and so forth are some of the turns on for a Capricorn.

They like to know their partner’s physical needs are met, apart from the emotional and mental ones. Being practical as well as sensible about their actions, Capricorns know better than to remain stuck on the dividing line between sex and love. They place both the factors together to make their relationship a healthy one, instead of it being one or the other alone.

6. Their deepest secret

The mountain goat is used to represent Capricorns. As such, they are the kind of people who like to stay at the top of the pyramid; to be best and flawless at whatever it is they invest their time and efforts in. Therefore, failure is the greatest fear of a Capricorn.

They would much rather stay silent about their weaknesses and insecurities, lest they appear vulnerable and fail at the task at hand. They need a partner who curbs their doubts and fear, gives them hope and support to succeed and someone who is there for them when they appear at their weakness and instead of pointing out the cracks in their armour, pinpoints its brilliance and makes Capricorn stand up on their feet once again.

7. What to avoid with a Capricorn

The fear of failing eats away a Capricorn’s heart and soul inside out. No one knows the burden of responsibility and duty like a Capricorn does. If they make some errors on the way, do not make the foolish mistake of hinting it out instantly.

Instead, give them all the support and positivity you can. Even the slightest bit of harsh criticism can lead Capricorn into the deep abyss and depress them right away. Being reserved, they will rarely show you what they are feeling. So instead of prying your way into their mind’s state forcefully, be patient with them.

Trust them to handle their mishaps but at the same time, do not stay too far away from offering them a helping hand. Such an overactive sense of duty and responsibility, along with forever looking for loopholes in their work lest they lead to their failure, Capricorns tend to burn themselves out, snuffing out whatever spark of love and liveliness they have left inside them. So, they need a constant high dose of unconditional support, enthusiasm and reassurance from their partner to keep them from fading and burning out completely.

8. How to communicate with a Capricorn

Capricorns are the serious types, as mentioned before. They always have a lot of work to do, so they do not bother in wasting their time in fulfilling formalities and making small talk. They are pretty honest about what they say and get to the point of discussion right away.

If you want to communicate with a Capricorn effectively, be straight to the point and clear about your intentions. Do not make small talk. A Capricorn would much rather open up to you quicker if you do not take their time with small talk and inconsequent details that you both know should be left unsaid.

9. The importance of spirituality for a Capricorn

Everyone prefers different methods to relax at the end of a long, working day. When it comes to a Capricorn, they prefer something much simpler. They use spirituality to relax and take the edge off of their body and soul. Without a partner who communicates to them on a spiritual level, a Capricorn often feels empty. Life becomes nothing but a wasteland to them.

Therefore, being with a Capricorn will become fairly easy when you listen to them as they talk about spiritual topics when you let them know clear-cut that you understand and even if you don’t, you still listen to them patiently. They will love you all the more when you indulge in the spiritual aspect of life with them, dig deeper in those aspects with them and try to understand it as a whole.

You showing your interest like that will only make them like you all the more. Once you connect with a Capricorn on that spiritual level, know that winning their heart over will not take long after that.

10. How to make it last forever with a Capricorn

Being the kind of people who take relationships and commitments very seriously, Capricorns look for the conventional marriage and having a family together deal. If you want to love a Capricorn and make your relationship last forever no matter how long that forever might be all you have to do is approach your Capricorn with pure respect, fidelity and understanding.

They do not waste their time and efforts for something they are not sure will last forever. Sticking around for trivial things is not in the cards for them. They only work towards a goal when they have total surety that it will actually go somewhere.

So do not approach a Capricorn for a serious commitment unless you are sure you both want the same things, and can respect their ideals just as much as they do. You might find a more exciting partner than a Capricorn, but never one who is more steadfast.

Keeping all these facts about a Capricorn in mind, you can really head towards developing a stable and healthy relationship that will last a long, long time. Giving you total respect, love and care as you deserve, a Capricorn committed to you will show you all the reasons it never worked out with anyone else before.

Their reliability and sense of purpose and duty will prove you wrong about choosing to remain single all your life. Not many relationships come out as pure, generous and stable as that with a Capricorn does.

  1. I’ve been seeing my Capricorn for nearly 2 yrs now, and I love everything about him, but key is patience and understanding what he is about, he’s vey sensible, serious about life and dependable but sometimes he has a hard shell and not very open, he always tells me he loves me but hasn’t got to that stage that he’s in love with me, I’m guessing that he’s making sure I fit all his requirements after all I’m a gemini. Not compatible but we work and I have issues with trust but the more I understand him the easier it is!!

  2. Everything you said is true. I had 2 capricorn boyfriends before marrying a Capricorn. I was married for 15 years and a year after my divorce met another Capricorn and he has been around for the last 13 years. It is true if you expect grand gestures of love, Rose’s, picnics and candlelight you have the wrong sign.

  3. Where it says, Giving you total respect, love and care as you deserve, a Capricorn committed to you will show you all the reasons it never worked out with anyone else before. Brought me to my knees in tears to my eyes thank you

  4. Hey ! I’m a gemini too and my boyfriend is a Capricorn. We get along very well and have mutual feelings for each other. But somehow I’m always scared he’s going to loose feelings for me the next day for no reason. It really tiggers my trust issues.

  5. I’m a gemini too and it’s so difficult and amazing to know that there is someone that really appreciate you. So used to others that made you doubt your own worth.

  6. I am a cancer and have been dating my capricorn for about 3 months now but this article really explained alot! As a cancer we fall hard when we fall in love and ik now that if I’m patient and have complete understanding in my heart that’s all hell ever ask of me

  7. Ive been dating a Capricorn for 5 no and your article is spot on. I do have a question though. We have great connection in bed, my boyfriend and i, but I don get any kisses. He says he doesn like them. My best friend is also a capricorn and he says he’s not much for kissing either. Before we got together he initiated the kiss the first kiss. Told me he’s been waiting years to do it. Now it’s like pulling teeth. Is this just a Capricorn thing? what can I do?

    1. Hiii as a Capricorn, some of us if not most don’t really show there love in a physical way, we tend to show it by acts of kindness or gifts.🥰 but that doesn’t mean we don’t like it either lol like it depends

  8. The description fits my ex girlfriend completely. Unfortunately, I still have no idea what went wrong to make things change suddenly.

    1. They need a partner who curbs their doubts and fear, gives them hope and support and someone who is there for them when they appear at their weakness and instead of pointing out the cracks in their armour.

  9. Absolutely perfect sketch of Capricorn… My husband is Capricorn and we are living a wonderful life… We have been together since 12 years of marriage and 15 yrs of love… Its great spending life with him. He’s amazing in everything…. ❤❤❤

  10. I am a Virgo married to a Capricorn, we have been together for 57 years, ups and downs but would not change him for anyone. He is my soulmate we still kiss and cuddle like lovebirds.

    1. Your comment totally brought me to tears.. Simply because my parents were together for 60 yrs. Same signs as yours.. Me..I’m a Capricorn myself.. You’ve given me hope that love still prevails.. Tysm my dear.. 😊😊😉😉❤❤❤

  11. Your are right about us , I’m a capricorn too. Dec. 26 . My husband married me with 4 kids and he had none until we Adopted 2 . He was
    Aquarius 7th . We stayed together 35 yrs and married 32 yrs until he was called home. I have dated two
    Aquarius’s in my life time the other one Jan. 22 . There no signs alike . I dated him 4 yrs before I met the late one. different like night and day . But I’m attractive to
    Aquarius men . Everybody are different . I loved the Feb 7th we was soul mates.

  12. As a Capricorn ♑️ woman I must say this is a very accurate description. I do disagree with the part about someone getting close to us through spirituality. For me although I am a spiritual Capricorn but that isn’t the way to my heart. As a matter of fact I keep my spiritual mind and life private. The way to my heart is to just be honest and loyal.


  13. I’m married to a Capricorn and I’m a Gemini. This explains a lot about my man. There are some things that don’t fit his personality but then again it also explains why I can’t get him to open up and express his feelings. I thought it was something deeper from his upbringing which is my situation. Him not saying he loves me on a regular basis is troubling but after reading this it does help me understand him better. I also see that sex is how they communicate too. Well at 57, I’m not all in which is causing a problem too. I thought he was being selfish and it all being about him and probably is the case. Idk, but at least I’m getting the low down on how he thinks and acts towards me at times.

  14. I am a Capricorn to my whole life what I have spent I didn’t know all of these things about me as a Capricorn and I am gonna be married in the couples of day

  15. That article was touch, as myself I am a Capricorn and I have a boyfriend that is also a Capricorn. Sometimes he doesn’t say in words that he loves me, and neither do I but we love each other very much.💚💚

  16. Wow! Can I just take this and share it as my bio instead of spending unnecessary hours telling people who I am, because really, you covered me completely.

  17. I am a Capricorn. I feel your descriptions are extremely accurate. However, in my experience, other people don’t seem to care about loyalty and faithfulness – unfortunately!

  18. I’m an aquarius and i’m seeing someone for the past 14yrs..he’s a capricorn…i can feel that he loves me whenever i’m with him..but he seldoms tells me the words..but whenever he says it i’m over the moon…he’s not the talkative type..but when he does,he’ll talk and make jokes around…he tells me his plans for the future but as if i’m not included with his future.and i never asks…there was a time when i told him if i just wasted my 14yrs for him..he just brushed it off..didnt say anything…just smiled…any suggestions that you can give me?i’m really lost..but i really really love him…i don’t want to loose him…💔

  19. Am also a Capricorn and I was dating a Capricorn thar I just lost now because I wasn’t communicative enough and what she needed wasn’t met that’s why she left not that there isn’t love but she’s just up and leave am so heart broken cos she is the best woman I’ve ever dated or been with.
