Capricorn in love

By Lavinia Amoun on July 24, 2015, 18346 views

Forget everything you’ve heard about Capricorn before: like Scorpio, this sign gets a bad reputation because of their mixing, contradicting qualities. Capricorns are actually very sensitive and receptive, though introverted, and as a cardinal sign they can go to great lengths to help their loved ones, putting their own needs on the back burner and making great sacrifices.

Ruled by Saturn, the planet of slow and steady progress and conservatism, their relationships grow at about the same pace. But again, as a cardinal sign, Capricorns are extremely creative and innovative and are willing to make many changes at any time for their partner.

Their perfectionist nature

They have terribly high standards, just like Virgo, and will compare themselves and their relationships to others which you may find difficult, but don’t worry. The serious and perfectionist nature of Capricorns gives way over time to a fun and silly personality. Still, even once they’ve reached this point in their lives, they’ll never stop being serious about their love for their partner.

They will stay by their partner’s side no matter what, they are solid as an earth sign, and won’t play games: if you ask them to call at a certain time, they will do it; if they’ve set up a date, they’ll be there ten minutes early just to make sure nothing goes wrong; they say what they mean and mean what they say.

As part of their bad reputation, people believe that Capricorns are willing to do anything for success and fame, including marrying into money, but this is far from true: Capricorns are romantic, love inspires them, and they are arguably the most loyal of the signs. But they can be shy or awkward and come off as cold. They want that one true love to marry and settle down with; they can’t even stand the idea of divorce.

Capricorn expectations and compatibility

Their expectations: to be taken seriously, to make a long-term commitment, faithfulness, privacy

How to keep a Capricorn: always respect them, even if they are being playful and silly, this means they are comfortable enough with you to show that side of themselves; take the relationship seriously; don’t even let your eye wonder for a minute, it could break a Capricorn’s heart.

Compatibility: Cancer will help this sign to connect with their emotions and the emotions of others.
