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 s*x 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.
