Waiting for a Capricorn to come back after a breakup

Capricorn is ruled by Saturn, the planet of delay, as well as success earned after years of effort. After a breakup, you expect Cappy to run back into your arms? Think again.

It doesn’t matter who ended the relationship. If you broke the goat’s heart, Cap will be even more cautious than usual about asking for another chance. Rejection only makes Capricorn try harder, but would any sane person try to scale the same barbed-wire fence twice?

If Capricorn ditched you, the decision wasn’t made lightly. This sign thinks about long-term consequences to any action, as well as how it will affect Cap’s reputation and social standing. A decision was made, and it’s likely to be the final word.

In the unlikely case that Capricorn returns to you — well, it could take months or years! Cap may not be as slow as Taurus, but the goat is much more serious. A thorough analysis of benefits and liabilities will be done before Cap makes any moves.

You don’t impulsively propose a merger of two corporations. The board of directors has to be convinced that the risk is minimal and that the shareholders will be happy. The deal has to pass muster with the Securities and Exchange Commission. This process doesn’t happen overnight … so in the meantime, keep yourself busy.

  1. I’m an Aries woman as well and I need your advice. I really hurt my male Capricorn feelings by putting out business on social media because I was angry and he won’t talk to me. He told a friend of mind that he is done with me. I really love this man and I’m genuinely sorry about my actions . I want this man back in my life what should I do

  2. You may not even see this reply as it is now 2016. I just wanted to say you give me hope… I’m an Aries in love with a Capricorn guy. And oh, what a challenge!

  3. Hello FakeMagic, my Aries sister!
    Thanks for posting. Amazing the similarities expressed in sooo many of these posts. They run, act distant, won’t communicate even when asked direct questions, and lean towards selfishness. I had one month of Bliss with my Cap. Then he needed more space, then more space, can we just go back to beings friends?
    Now he and I have known each other 16 years and just recently admitted feelings we had way back when. We have both been in long term relationships where neither of us have felt were right for us and decided to give ‘us’ a chance. It’s been difficult living 1200 miles away and having to untangle ourselves from our current situations. I didn’t mind taking our relationship back to a more platonic level (which with the distance between us equates to not using terms of endearment or flirting with each other), but I have really deep feelings for this guy (I was in love with him way back when, too), and I can’t just shut off how I feel. And being Aries, I am very demonstrative of how I feel. Aries can be very forward and open. Lucky dude – he never has to guess where he stands with me or how I feel about him! But for me, I have no fucking clue what is on his mind. Since suggesting we just be friends until we are both free, we went from texting every day to I was lucky to get one a week, and now it’s been two weeks since I last heard from him. Because we had some misunderstandings with this transition, I’m not really sure how he feels now. I just don’t get how you can really feel something for someone and then just cut them out of your life almost completely! That just doesn’t make sense! At least not in my Aries book of open honesty. So yeah, have to agree with that they have a hard time with relationships and I have gotten lame excuses that I saw right through. And yet, I can’t walk away…

    So you really want your Capricorn back huh, I’m a capricorn too as far as i could think, that he might be looking for someone better than you but if you were a real deal then he might come back to you. The thing about capricorns, is that they will make you realize where you made mistakes and what are the consequences, so start remembering and writing all the mistakes you made and apologize him for the things you did, he will accept you, just don’t cheat on him and be sure to correct your mistakes if you want him back. He is just waiting for you to realize your mistakes. After that you’re in his playground so don’t do anything stupid. ?

  5. Hi Parmesh,
    I don’t know if your reply was to me or someone else’s comment here…
    The only ‘mistake’ I can think of that I could have possibly made was that I have been very demonstrative in my feelings and expressions of them. Not like I have had much opportunity to make many mistakes as our relating had been through texting since we live over 1200 miles apart, and were enduring the extreme complications of distance plus both of us in relationships we would have to terminate to be together. He wanted us to return to a more platonic way of relating because he started feeling guilty that he was having an emotional affair with me, even though he plans to leave his wife. But it is hard to even have a friendship with someone who shuts you out and won’t even respond to any texts. It’s now been over three weeks since I last heard from him. I love him, but I give up. I’m not into one-way relationships. So maybe he’ll come around someday, maybe he won’t. I would wait for him if I knew he still wanted me, but ignoring me does not indicate to me that he values our relationship, so c’est la vie.
