Four Reasons Why You Would Fall Hard For a Capricorn

If you want a partner who is smart, disciplined and in control, Capricorn is the one you’re looking for. Mr. or Ms. Saturn knows exactly what they want, and if that includes a relationship with you, he or she will make it their mission to achieve that goal. If you fall for a Capricorn, you’ve fallen for someone who takes love very seriously. This relationship is for adults only. Are you in?

1. Let’s Get Serious

Capricorn is ruled by the planet of commitment, so it makes sense that she knows how to commit. She’s not interested in quasi-relationships. She only wants the real deal, preferably a life-long union. Not only do you have someone who is prepared to offer her carved-in-stone dedication, she’s selective. Only a few meet her high standards — it takes her a long, long time to open up and trust. If you’ve got your eye on her, know that her love and loyalty are rare commodities that may or may not be offered to you. If she’s expressed an interest in you, consider yourself lucky to be selected.

Along with her loyalty comes integrity. If she says she’s going to do something, she’ll do it. That means no empty promises. She may not be full of flowery declarations, but she is someone you can depend on. It’s also important to her to approach her relationship as a responsible adult. She’s fully aware that a partnership involves work, and she’s prepared to do that work.

2. The Steep Path

Speaking of work, Capricorn just assumes that life is a hard climb to the top. Nothing worthwhile comes easily, and he’ll apply this work ethic to his relationship. This doesn’t mean he’ll make things harder (he wants to succeed). It does mean that he’ll treat each partnership issue, and the partnership in general, as an achievement to aim for. This guy has serious ambition — he wants to build a lasting relationship of exceptional quality. You and he won’t just be scraping by; you’ll be doing the absolute best that your joint circumstances allow.

Despite his sometimes dour approach to life, Capricorn has zero interest in playing the victim. He wants to advance, which means he will be the one driving the relationship. If you partner with him, you can rest assured that he’ll take care of business. You won’t have to support him, prop him up or coddle him. Capricorn is one of the more independent signs. He may love you, but part of him doesn’t really need you. He doesn’t need anyone. This can make him a bit guarded, but it also means that he won’t suck the life out of you with his demands for emotional sustenance. He’s there to look after you (although he won’t be coddling you, either).

  1. I have Venus in Capricorn and my 6H Mars in opposition with Saturn.

    Boyfriend has moon in Capricorn, which dominates his character.

    We interact as described above.

  2. Ahem. I should have said, more accurately:

    I have Venus in Capricorn. My 6H Mars is in opposition with Saturn.

  3. It’s funny, but I’d never considered my natal Uranus (7H ruler in my 4H) square Saturn (conjunct ASC) to be indicative of seeking out a Saturnine type…

  4. I do love Caps a lot. Most of my friends are either Cap suns or Cap heavy. Although I am an Aquarius Sun, I have Mercury, Saturn and Mars in Capricorn. Many Caps come off as reserved at the beginning, but like a fruit they have layers. Underneath that reserve is a kind and helpful person with a kickass sense of humour.
    So when many of my fellow air signs complain how ”boring” they find Capricorns, I really can’t identify with them. They are kind of my fav sign from the zodiac (beside my own)

    P.S : Most of the Capricorn men are adorable to smoking hot to look at – Colin Morgan, Bradley Cooper etc.

  5. me: sun venus moon aquarius mars skorpio him: sun moon capricorn venus mars aquarius …that’s heaven
