Capricorn man personality traits and characteristics

Outwardly reserved the Capricorn man is a complicated bundle of practicality, endearing modesty and self discipline, often reserving his fun and sexy wild side strictly for those who are very close to him. Capricorn men want to succeed. Goals and a practical viewpoint often characterize this man.

Down to earth, self motivated, patient and responsible. Capricorn men are generally among the harder signs to understand, with a number of personality traits which often confuse partners in the early stages of a relationship.

While the Capricorn man is as romantic and emotional as anyone else, he can be somewhat inhibited in expressing his emotions. One way this is apparent is that he often prefers to perform practical tasks to help loved ones in preference to making purely romantic gestures.

He is very cautious by nature, and not one to rush into anything, so don't be misled if his interest appears mainly platonic initially.

How do you eat an elephant? One spoonful at a time..

A Capricorns greatest strength is his ability to set goals and pursue them until attained. Nothing gets in the way of a Capricorn's plans and ambitions, and they don't like taking shortcuts or cheating as either devalues their later satisfaction.

They often have an intrinsic need to challenge themselves. Pessimistic by nature they sometimes have a slight inferiority complex or fear of failure, which drives them so hard to both succeed, and stand on their own two feet doing so. Respect, recognition and praise are important to them, as is their public image.

They value steady progress over short bursts of activity, and are exceedingly patient. Bad news affects them less than other signs, and rarely holds them back for long.

Never underestimate the patience or willpower of a Capricorn man who's on a mission! They can beat most other signs at almost anything in a battle of attrition.

Prior planning and preparation prevent poor performance

Capricorns like to plan their every move, weighing all the pros and cons of any issue in advance, and often rehearsing exactly what they want to say before they say it.

They are dependable, particularly in a crisis, though they dislike chaos and unpredictability. When asked, they give sound, practical advice. As a rule they're not aggressive people, and only express hostility as a defense.

Work is generally very important to Capricorn men and they don't take it lightly, holding fast to duty and responsibility, partly because they want to look good in front of the world, and partly for the security such behavior brings. Typically they prefer employment rather than the greater risk/reward of self employment.

They often place a very high value on material security, which can lead to efficiency, thrift or being somewhat of a pack-rat. (I say 'somewhat' to be polite. They're often fantastic pack-rats!) How many Capricorns does it take to change a lightbulb? I don't know, but i'm going to keep the old lightbulb just in case I need it later...

On the negative side Capricorns can be pessimistic, suspicious, stubborn and sometimes intolerant.

Capricorn man questions

Are Capricorn men afraid to express their feelings?

Afraid is the wrong word for it, though this is a valid question, as they often come across this way. Capricorn men typically enjoy people, though they are often thoughtful, self-contained and shy. Their quiet exterior can make them appear to be loners, often building a wall of reserve around themselves. They are very loyal to those they care for, but often cold to those outside of their circle of friends and family. They are often highly cautious and analytical when making new friends.

What are Capricorn men like in bed?

Your Capricorn man is likely to be a very adventurous lover, which may come as a surprise when compared to his otherwise restrained and stand-offish exterior. Contrary to his cool demeanor, he is remarkably playful in bed, and will prefer ‘fun' sex to the heavy or serious. He will also enjoy laughing in bed, and appreciate a sense of humor. Don't be surprised if he suggests making love at either your place of work or his, it seems to be a common fantasy with Capricorns!

Are Capricorn men kinky?

This is always a hard question to answer, as one person's idea of kinky can be very different to someone else's. Individuals also vary a lot, so this is a bad area to generalize in. All things being equal though, Capricorn men are amongst the more kinky, yes.

What's it like dating a Capricorn man?

For many people starting to date a Capricorn is the hardest part. Once you get them to open up, things are much easier. Capricorns are somewhat unique in being much more friendly with their loved ones than with strangers. Many partners find this 'self enforced' loyalty to be very endearing. The partner of a Capricorn woman usually feels secure in the relationship.

How loyal are Capricorn men?

Once committed to a partner or married the Capricorn man is exceptionally loyal and will seldom divorce, because he feels that any situation can be worked out, and will certainly be willing to put in the effort to do so if his partner is.

How to know if an Capricorn man loves you?

The Capricorn man is as romantic and emotional as anyone else, but can be somewhat inhibited in expressing his emotions, sometimes preferring to perform practical tasks to help loved ones in preference to making purely romantic gestures. If he seems more interested in being your personal handyman than getting you into bed, this is just his way of showing he cares!

He will be exceptionally cautious of making a commitment until he knows that your traits and lifestyle are compatible with his. He is very cautious by nature, and not one to rush into anything, so again don't be misled if his interest appears mainly platonic for a long time.

How to understand your Capricorn man

Your Capricorn will have his own unique personality traits. This article talks about sun signs, however there are many other factors. For example his moon sign determines his emotional personality which affects whether he is sensitive, romantic, loyal etc.

With his date, time and location of birth these other factors can be calculated for a complete picture of his personality. To explore this further please see our article on astrology compatibility readings.

How to keep a Capricorn man?

Security is very important to this man, and he will prefer a stable and down to earth lover. He often admires those who are hard-working or have ambition over those who are more physically attractive but lacking in ambition. He has very little tolerance for lazy people, and often enjoys the company of optimists over pessimists

How to know if your Capricorn man is your soulmate?

Relationships are complex things, comprising hundreds of individual elements. Sun signs are one of these, however a detailed analysis of everything is required to find all the strong and weak areas. Please see the article on astrology and soulmates for more information on how astrology can be used to determine if someone is your soulmate.

Capricorn man long distance and online relationships

Online relationships and long distance relationships have unique challenges. One of these is that you get to see one side of someone very clearly: their personality. You don't however get to see anything about other factors such as sexual attraction. My compatibility reports address this by scoring all factors alongside each other so you can see the whole picture, with any strong or weak areas highlighted. To explore this further please see my article on online relationships.

Do Capricorn men cheat?

Generally they don't. But, this is the type of question that often gets asked or answered whenever astrology is discussed. Individual experiences are then quoted back and forth as proof that Capricorn men do or don't. Individuals get offended by general statements that don't apply to them, and everything goes downhill fast. The diagram below shows the problem here:

Capricorn man personality

Astrology can predict someone's personality very accurately when the placement of all their planets is calculated. In that situation we can also predict their most likely behavior.

From just someone's sun sign however we can only predict some aspects of their personality and it's too much of a leap to try and predict behavior from just those. Astrology has fairly precise limits. This is an example of an area where sun signs are just too broad and clumsy to give an answer. A real compatibility reading is required to answer the question.

How to make a Capricorn man fall in love with you?

This is a question which is very hard to give a general answer on, as no two Capricorn men are totally identical. The key is understanding him and what he finds most attractive in a partner. Astrology can provide a wealth of information to enable this, however natal charts need to be prepared and studied to do so. Please see the article on seduction and astrology for more information on this.

I specialize in offering tailored advice based on your unique personality and his together, as one without the other isn't nearly as useful.

How compatible are you with your Capricorn man?

This depends on far more than just your sun signs. The complete picture of your personality and his is determined by numerous planet placements at the time of birth. To fully understand someone or how compatible you are with them we need to calculate those other planet placements from their date of birth, and compare them to your own, and then interpret the results. This unlocks the real power of astrology, and gives much more useful and specific information - everything from how they view you and how to turn them on to the best way to avoid arguments.

We specialize in providing accurate and affordable astrology compatibility readings delivered promptly via email. This reading explores everything about your relationship, including a detailed analysis of your personality and your partner's personality. We examine areas ranging from sexual attraction to problem solving. Each topic has clear explanations, scores and comparisons to averages.

Average size is 100 pages. The reading is $27 and includes an unconditional guarantee, free email questions and free revision if you later find a more accurate birth time for you or your partner.

All the analysis is based off of the date, time and location of birth for you and your partner. Ideally the times should be as accurate as possible, but we can work with the best information you have.
