Capricorn people are nothing but practical. I am, of course, talking about the classic Capricorn.
The classic Capricorn, which is the earth aspect of the Capricorn, is a person born under the Capricorn sign that is mostly goat.
Do keep in mind, however, that the Capricorn sign is actually a mixture of two animals. The top part of a Capricorn is a goat while the lower part is a fish. This makes for a very interesting mix of practicality and emotionalism.
If you are a classic Capricorn, then you are mostly goat. You tend to be very practical and very reliable. You can be very trustworthy.
However, what makes the Capricorn quite unpredictable is that there might be certain stresses or certain special circumstances wherein the fish makes an appearance.
Once you throw emotions out, the Capricorn personality becomes unpredictable and volatile.
Given certain circumstances, it is not unusual for a person who you know, who is often solid and even tempered for most of his life, to completely lose it.
This is the secret of the Capricorn man. For the most part, he is the paragon of stability and reliability. A lot of employers would run after the Capricorn man because he is loyal and he puts in the work.
He keeps the big picture in mind. He is ambitious and driven.
However, there is quite a significant percentage of Capricorn men that simply fail to live up to their fullest potential. Why?
They let the fish side of their personality take over and they make decisions out of emotional impulse instead of logic and reason. They stop looking at the big picture.
Instead, they let the moment overcome them predictably and let their emotions get the best of them. They then end up making the wrong decisions.
Worst of all, they often justify their bad decisions by doing all sorts of blame finding and logic games. They are great at coming up with excuses, justifications and rationalizations.
At the end of the day, it is still the same thing, about covering up your failures and shortcomings by pointing the blame to somebody else and trying to “explain it” away.
Here is the definitive guide to the Capricorn male personality.
Capricorn men in love
Capricorn guys have a very interesting problem when it comes to romance.
They may feel that they are burning with desire inside but the outside world would not know. Why?
There is a big disconnect between what you see outside of a Capricorn and what the Capricorn feels inside.
This is one of the biggest challenges Capricorn men have. They may feel that they are very sensitive, compassionate and thoughtful. However, they have a tough time expressing this in a way that the world understands.
The feeling is intense inside but it really does not matter. You have to understand that the world revolves around its own rules.
The world is an objective world. This means that something is only real if it is based on what people outside perceive.
You may be feeling a certain emotion but people outside of you cannot feel, see or recognize it. With this, we have a problem.
This is the biggest challenge of Capricorn men. They have to master the art of communicating emotions in a clear way that can be understood and processed positively by the object of their affection.
Don’t get me wrong, Capricorn men can be very loving and romantic. Especially when it comes to Aries and Capricorn matches.
The issue is expressing it well and clearly enough to the right people.
Capricorn men in relationships
When it comes to getting into relationships, Capricorn guys can have a problem.
As I have mentioned above, there is a big disconnect between how they feel inside and how they express their emotions.
Moreover, there is a wide gap between how they are feeling and how the rest of the world is interpreting the emotional signals that they are sending out.
This can lead to a lot of difficulties attracting people and getting into relationships.
The good news is that Capricorn men are very loyal and faithful in love once they are in a relationship. You can expect them to stay in a relationship.
If left only to them, they would stay in the relationship forever. That is how solid Capricorn men can be.
This can be a problem because there are certain people you should not stay in a relationship with.
Let’s face it, we do not live in an ideal world. There are bad people out there who would use you up or abuse you. These are not people that you should stay in relationships with.
Unfortunately, Capricorn guys are so afraid of the hassle of trying to get into another relationship that they would put up with almost anything.
It is common that Capricorn men turn into emotional doormats. If you are a Capricorn guy reading this article, understand this part of your personality and learn to recognize it.
Never allow yourself to become somebody’s doormat.
Capricorn men and friendships
Capricorn guys make great friends. They may not be the most exciting and colorful friend in a group.
However, you can definitely rely on them to become the most faithful and loyal. As long as you prove your loyalty to them, Capricorn guys will stick with you through thick and thin.
This is why a lot of other horoscope signs seek out Capricorn men as friends.
The big issue with Capricorn men and friendships is reciprocity. Many Capricorn guys can be generous.
However, a large number of them can also be very stingy. This can be a problem when it comes to friendships because friendships are normally two way streets. Many friends expect something in return when they give to their friend.
Of course, I’m not talking about a purely commercial relationship. I’m not saying that you just become friends with a person for the things that they can do for you.
I’m not talking about that at all. What I am talking about is just some basic level of reciprocity.
When you help out a friend, you expect that friend to help you out in the same form later. This is the problem.
Capricorn men will help you out but it may not be in the form that you are looking for.
If you are the type of person who measures your friendships based on what you give and what you get in return, you might run into problems with Capricorn guy friends.
Capricorn men and lovemaking
Sadly, there is no such thing as a perfect horoscope sign. There is no such thing as a horoscope sign that has it all.
When it comes to lovemaking, Capricorn men are pretty much cold fish. They are not very imaginative. They often look at lovemaking the same way as a construction worker looks at a foundation.
In other words, it is just all business. It is very mechanical and routinized.
If you are looking for an intimacy that really engages your mental, emotional, and spiritual sides, you may run into a problem.
You may have to educate your Capricorn man into the way you want him to perform. You may want to clue him into the benefits that you are expecting from your physical intimacy with him.
The good news is that most Capricorn men are eager to please. You can rest assure that they would at least put in the effort.
This can take quite a bit of time and coaching from you but you can get there. You just have to be patient.
Capricorn men and career
Love lives are the weak spots of Capricorn men. However, a Capricorn’s career is their strongest points.
When it comes to reliability, ambition, and willingness to go all the way, Capricorn men can be relied on.
This is why they have an easy time getting promoted and are often noticed in work groups. They are able to get the job done.
The big challenge with Capricorn men is not their a career. Most Capricorn men can get that going. The big challenge is moving up in a particular career.
As I have mentioned earlier, they can be promoted. The problem is that they can be quite unimaginative. They can find themselves locked into a dead end spot in an organization.
This can be a problem because Capricorn men are very, very ambitious. They want to be at the top.
The problem is that they may choose the right road that leads them to the top but you have to understand that running an organization does not just mean that you are good at doing a certain job, and that you are good at telling people what to do.
First and foremost, running an organization means that you know how to inspire people. This is what it takes to be on the next level.
This is one key weakness most Capricorn men need to work on. It is okay to desire to be at the top but you just have to understand what it takes to get to the top.
It may not be what you expected it to be, it may not be what you think. Inspiration is a key part of this.
Capricorn men and money
When it comes to financial management, Capricorn guys can be hot or cold.
On the one hand, you can have Capricorn guys that are very miserly. They hang on to each dollar until that dollar screams. Seriously, they are very tight.
This can be a good thing because they can save quite a bit of capital and do quite a bit of research to grow that money. It is common to find Capricorn guys who are doing well because they know how to grow money.
You have to understand that real wealth is not about earning money. You can earn a million dollars a year but if you suck at growing that money, you are still going to be poor.
You will still feel that you are not earning enough. Capricorn guys easily get this. This is why many of them know how to grow whatever amount of money they earn.
The other extreme of the Capricorn guy is that they let the fish side of their personality take over. The moment they see a dollar enter their bank account, they rush to spend that dollar.
In fact, these types of Capricorn guys behave in such a way that you would not think that they are Capricorns at all. They have very little money to show for all their time and effort.
This again boils down to the fish side of their personality. They tend to be emotionally impulsive. They are impulsive buyers and spenders.
It does not take much for this type of Capricorn guy to wipe out his credit card to buy something.
If you are this type if Capricorn man, my advice to you is to look at why you spend so much money.
Mostly, you would realize that you spend so much because you look at money as a proxy for emotional fulfillment. If you divorce the emotional pay off from you spending money, you would live a much happier life.
Not only would you have a lot more money saved up for a rainy day or for retirement, but you would learn to get emotional fulfillment from other aspects of your life.
Capricorn men and family
Capricorn guys can be great fathers. However, keep in mind that they are often misunderstood.
Capricorn guys think that they are great family men because they really focus on their work, on being the bread winner and taking care of the family.
The sad reality is that being the father does not just mean being the bread winner, taking care of the physical needs of your family, but rather you also have to be there for them emotionally.
This can be quite a challenge for the typical Capricorn man because he tends to take a lot of time doing things. He tends to put in a lot of time at work.
It is common for Capricorn fathers to be absent fathers. In their minds, they think that they are being good fathers.
However, in the minds of their children, they are being lousy fathers.
If you are a Capricorn guy and you want to be a really good father, make it a point to budget at least 1 hour of your time every single day to spend with your family.
As long as you are there and as long as you are regular, you should be fine.
However, you need to stop believing the lie that just because you put food on the table automatically means that you are being a good father.
Fatherhood means so much more.
My final thoughts on the Capricorn man
Capricorn guys are very driven and are very ambitious. They can get the job done.
However, it all boils down to understanding and appreciating which kind of Capricorn man you are dealing with.
If you are dealing with a Capricorn guy that is mostly fish, then you have to understand that in many cases, he probably will not behave like a typical Capricorn.
On the other hand, if you are dealing with a Capricorn who is a classic goat, he can be very predictable.
Regardless, this guide should give you enough information to work with and to take your relationship with a Capricorn man to the next level.
Similarly, if you are a Capricorn man, this guide should give you enough of a framework to work through your issues and become the best person you could be.
