Maybe what really turns you on is that he is willing to take the lead… Okay, not willing… It’s more like he insists on it a lot. Okay, he insists on being in the lead all the time… But who’s counting, right? After all, just a little idiosyncrasy is easy to adjust to, right? Well …
The Capricorn Man
His Traits In Love, Dating, & Life
Okay, let me ask you this …Have you read, “Fifty Shades of Grey,” yet? Now, even though the character Christian Gray is admittedly, by the narrator’s confession and character description, a Gemini Sun Sign, let’s just take his need to be in a position of authority and have his partner in the submissive (cough, cough, clearing throat here.) Now, put that need on hyperdrive. Now, what do you have? Ta-dah… Here’s your Capricorn Man! Still attracted? Of course, you are!
So, the question is, will you be able to be comfortable taking the back seat in this potentially steamy relationship while letting your Capricorn man take the lead?

Saturn, once associated with negativity, associates such energies with Capricorn, who is often said to hold a pessimistic attitude. Saturn’s influences of professionalism and dedication are at the heart of what drives your Capricorn man. It gives the Capricorn man the authoritarian edge and makes him best suited for work in authoritarian positions, government, business ownership, architectural development, education, administration, and even corporate management.
Saturn is the ruling planet influencing Capricorn men. It’s a planet aligned with career, motivation, ambition and the installation of discipline, responsibility, and duty in those influences. Though this is a planet formally associated with difficulties and strife, such troubles in life must be overcome. When this happens, one sees exceptionally rewarding gains in both luck and experience.
Capricorn Man In Love & In Bed
(Venus in Capricorn)
A bit shy and reserved, sometimes introverted even when being social, the male Capricorn is in no hurry to jump into the vulnerability arena. He likes to take his time when it comes time for intimacy. Sure, the Capricorn male likes to have fun. He loves to go out on dates, and engage in intriguing, philosophical conversations, but to get emotionally intimate he will feel that you’re very special indeed.
The innermost feelings and thoughts are like treasures, and he’s not at all willing to “cast his pearls in front of swine.” In other words, if your Capricorn man is not 100% sure that you will treasure innermost feelings and thoughts, he won’t be sharing a time soon. So, if you are falling for that Capricorn, you’ve had your eyes on for quite some time be ready to wait.
You’ll need to be patient as Mother Teresa before he decides to crack his own shell and reveal himself to you. As if he grew up with Emily Dickinson as his nanny, he will “tell the truth, but tell it slant,” revealing his deepest emotions. But, he’ll only reveal emotions in degrees while testing responsiveness and reception.
Things are likely to start out slow in the bedroom. But, once it becomes truly intimate with you on an emotional level, that’s when things will heat up, and fast! And he will expect only your best performance. Again, wants the lead, but it is here that you will most likely enjoy being submissive if the two of you agree on where to draw the line!
Capricorn Man Traits, Personality, Characteristics
Capricorn men are generous to a fault, broad-minded, wise, amiable, and highly intelligent. However, they like to take an authoritarian role in relationships. So, if you don’t mind being a bit passive …okay … sometimes even submissive, it’s likely you’ll get along just fine with a Capricorn Man. However, if you’re not the type who likes to take the back seat in the relationship, resentment and animosity might brew. But be forewarned, even if it does, the Capricorn doesn’t much care.
He’s quite comfortable taking the lead and indeed, insist on being the leader in all things. As a Capricorn has a highly organized mindset – cool and calculating you might say, and his organizational skills usually translate into the home environment very well, but not always.
Don’t make the mistake of assuming your Capricorn Man is a pessimist either. Although he considers the possible negative outcomes of all scenarios, that is merely his genius coming out to play. He thoroughly plans situations accordingly. This attention to detail and outcomes doesn’t make him a negative thinker, but a forward one.
If you get into an argument with your Capricorn male, don’t expect to win. He is skilled at debate and at the ready to point out where you’re incorrect. He feels he is steering you in the correct direction and showing you the mistakes you are making.
You, on the other hand, may take a lesson he is trying to teach you as being condescending, and quite frankly, sometimes it can be. It clearly takes patience to love and live with a Capricorn Man. Alas, if you can overcome his idiosyncrasies and flaws, you will find a genuine human being who loves and cares with a depth beyond all measure.
Hearth & Home
If you encounter him in his work environment and find him amazingly organized and efficient. He is so efficient that you can’t help but be impressed. Don’t be surprised if you visit his home to find it is also tidy. Bear in mind however that some Capricorn men are less than tidy during their free time. This will be particularly true if he’s been a bachelor for a long time and he hasn’t yet found the right balance between work and home life.
How will you know this? His place will scream out the more than obvious idea that this is a “bachelor pad, lived in look.” As such, you can rest assured in knowing you will probably find a few empty Chinese food cartons still lingering in the fridge, There might also be a couple of last week’s pizza boxes taking up space on the kitchen counter. Oh, and it’s likely he’ll have a few weeks’ worth of laundry all about the house.
Once he finds his balance between work and home, friends and family, hobbies, and goals, he’ll regain his sense of organization: This can happen a lot faster, however, if he gets a partner was more than willing to guide him in the right direction when it comes time for him to get socks in the hamper. Gentle reminders are all he’ll need… But don’t let it turn into nagging. An authoritarian Capricorn will take well to nagging at all.
Health & Well-Being
Capricorn rules the patella, bones, skeleton, stomach, and the peripheral nerves in the body. The sign rules the mucous membranes, skin, teeth, hair, joints, and particularly the knees. Capricorns are known to suffer from anxiety, especially when dealing with business-related details, duties, and concerns. The Capricorn males are also prone to accidents including dislocations, sprains, broken bones, and other injuries.

The sun sign rules over mucous membranes, he may suffer from common colds and disorders of the lungs.
Career & Finance
You’ll be happy to find that your Capricorn man is probably quite comfortable in terms of wealth, and he’s earned every single penny of it. No one has handed the Capricorn male anything. The nice nest egg he has established is the direct result of his productivity at work. Capricorns are incredibly patient. So, they can forgo any kind of immediate gratification to focus on the potential long-term benefits of their work efforts, at least while they are in the work setting. While he may not be wealthy in his youth, he will make sure he’s going to be comfortable for when he is ready to establish a family.

How to Attract a Capricorn Man
If you’re looking for a romantic male, you found him in your Capricorn man’s soul. Bear in mind it could be a while before he starts his romantic demonstration. His initial presentation to you will be aloof and cool, but this will do nothing in the way of introducing his true feelings. Capricorn men are very careful when it comes to falling in love and romance. This is of course, due to his rough, tough guy exterior which is just a front for a sweet, compassionate guy who is easily hurt.
Capricorn males will naturally behave with haste when dealing with a relationship. They take their sweet time when it comes to deciding if they want to be really intimate with someone and this is an act of emotional self-preservation. When you are in a relationship with a Capricorn male, he will demand that the relationship is built upon a solid footing. Only then can he forge forward with you into the future with confidence. Be attentive to your Capricorn, and he’ll be equally attentive to you.
Dating a Capricorn Man
Many of Capricorns are foodies which is why many of them get along so wonderfully with those born under the sign of Taurus. Also, the Capricorn man really likes to see some results from everything he does so, gardening is a pastime in which you can later watch things bloom.
Capricorns don’t care for loud, ostentatious people and they find rudeness deplorable. When they encounter someone who behaves rudely, it’s like someone running their fingernails down a chalkboard or sticking shards of glass underneath the fingernail. Yes, graphic I know, but as true of an account as it can get.
Gossip, slander, lies, and disrespectful behaviors are a major turn off to the reserved Capricorn. He sees it as a sign of disrespect for authority and who loves a sense of authority … you guessed it! Being a major foodie Capricorns love everything that tastes delightful and abhors poorly cooked food.
Best Match for the Capricorn Man
The most compatible signs with Capricorn are Taurus and Scorpio. Taurus and Capricorn together are a comfortable pairing. Taurus, while stubborn, is also laid-back and can, therefore, handle Capricorn’s need for the lead without much of an issue. That’s if Taurus is made comfortable. They must continue to be surrounded by creature comforts. In the bedroom, both signs like the sensation of touch, and lusty encounters are certain!
When it comes to Scorpio and Capricorn is also ideal although it can take months for the relationship to develop before any real intimacy is achieved. Both partners need to know they can trust one another before they’re willing to become vulnerable. Once both partners are willing, the commitment runs deep.
Both partners agree on security, family, and home life. In the privacy of a bedroom, the heat is on! Both Virgo and Pisces also make nice matches with Capricorn; Virgo and Capricorn work hard, play hard, and can emotionally empathize with one another. With Pisces and Capricorn, both parties are dedicated, faithful, and each can contribute to improving the other’s self-esteem and confidence.
Friends and Family
Capricorns make for exceptional friends. They are amiable, sociable, and when socializing with others, they have a good sense of humor. In regard to the Capricorn father personality, fine once he becomes a parent, he will remain committed to taking care of the financial needs of the entire family.
As a father, he will serve as an excellent role model will demand exceptional behavior from his child. Since the Capricorn male is still concerned with financial comfort, it is likely that he’ll spend less time with the family at home and more time in the work environment. His work focus is not an effort to neglect family, but rather to ensure he can provide for the family’s needs accordingly.
The Capricorn dad is generous but frugal. He will gladly pay for his child’s needs and some of what the child wants, but he will not spoil the child because he much rather have the child learn the real value of a dollar. The Capricorn dad is more than happy to pass on his understanding of the world when he does get time to spend with the children.
The Capricorn son is one of the well-loved and protected. Irrespective of age, he will demonstrate ambition early on, especially if money is assigned as a reward for actions taken. If money is not used as an incentive for household chores, the Capricorn child may come across as less than enthusiastic to participate. He may seem lethargic. He is prone to severe procrastination. The young Capricorn boy will get along with siblings well, even when living in a blended family, but he will prefer his own space to partake of video games, read, or listen to his favorite music uninterrupted.
Capricorn and Aries tend to bang heads. Remember both icons of the zodiac have horns, and both are ambitious and ready for action, so there’s likely a clash of lies ahead. But, if these two signs align their ambitions accordingly, they can have an incredibly successful relationship, even if this is one of the least compatible signs with Capricorn. Capricorn must learn to deal with the impatience of action-demanding Aries. Then Aries must deal with Capricorn’s need to plan everything before it happens, but these obstacles can be overcome to help in the formation of what could be a worthy relationship.
When it comes to Libra and Capricorn., basically there seems to be no physical attraction most of the time. The chemistry just seems to be lacking, and the absence of sex can result in a relationship fail… An epic fail. Libra can be an indecisive personality while Capricorn is all about decisive-action and planning. Libra is constantly seeking balance, and the Capricorn male is constantly seeking the result of his ambition, sometimes regardless of any thought to retaining fairness, balance, or harmony–actions that Libra downright abhors! Ultimately the relationship between Libra and Capricorn tends to fizzle out fast if it ever gets ignited at all.
Astrology & Zodiac Gifts

This zodiac’s alias is the Time Manipulator! Capricorns love anything that will help them organize their belongings as well. Don’t forget how he struggles to keep his home neat and tidy with all those hard-worked hours each week on the job. Cash gifts are always practical, as are books, videos, and workplace accessories where he spends so much of his time.
