Capricorn in Love

Love is a serious business to Capricorn. You have learned from experience that nothing comes easily: you must earn your rewards, and, fortunately, you have tremendous patience and persistence. And relationships are no exception to this life rule: you know that marriage is a working partnership, and that you are building an edifice that must last years, therefore you are prepared to do without the sparks as long as you have stability and solidity.

With me so far? Or have I missed something?

You see, the celestial Goat has a fish's tail, which links her to the watery world of feelings. Thus, you are as capable as any woman of being downed by the thunderbolt of love, which is why your common sense and innate caution are no bulwark against lust and unsuitable men. You make your share of mistakes, although, happily, you do learn from them.

Another hallmark of Capricorn is the reliance on tried and trusted methods, and the tendency to put duties and responsibilities before self-fulfilment. You can put marriage on hold because of your career, a relative's needs or countless other factors that you consider to be more important, and you are terrified to take a risk, yet you yearn to love and be loved, and wonder why so many other women appear to be able to have it all.

What will help is placing a greater importance on your feelings. Your rational approach to life works well in your career and with the material world, but when it comes to relationships you have to go with your heart. Don't be afraid to reveal your sensitivity and express your needs: at the end of the day, what matters more - that you did the right thing or that you found joy, and in the process made someone else very happy too? Underneath that efficient, capable exterior is a woman of passion and abandon. Please let her out.


The Capricornian Man

If you want to reel in a Capricorn man, don't go wearing a nine-inch skirt, a bustier and your stilettos. You'll get his attention, all right, but he'll immediately pop you into the available and very temporary category, while continuing to keep his eye out for the future mother of his children. This man has taste: he is upwardly mobile, and needs a wife who will help him up the ladder of success. He is a truly horny old Goat too - he has a large sexual appetite, which invariably lasts well into old age but he won't be influenced by it when it comes to marriage. Mr Capricorn is often to be found keeping a low profile: he doesn't like drawing attention to himself. He has a dry humour and quiet way of maintaining absolute control. He's faithful and long-suffering too. However, if you're looking for fun, spontaneity, generosity and intimacy, stop right there: he's not for you.


Who's For You

You like what you know, what you are familiar with, and in this instance this means having a relationship with another Cardinal sign - Aries, Libra, and Cancer. Libra, Mr. Style and Sophistication, is your top dog: this man is so smooth you forget all your rules about maintaining control and looking for the really worthwhile qualities in the opposite sex - you just drool and come to heel. And even though you may end up wanting more substance in the relationship, you can sustain a long and happy union. Mr Aries is dream boat number two - daring, dashing, boyish and in need of your sense and sensibleness. However, this is one of the great love affairs, and does not translate well into marriage. With the Cancer man it's a case of opposites attracting - he brings out your soft and sentimental side, the sex is great, and you'll stay together through thick and thin, happy or miserable. Another Capricorn is also a good partner: this is a very safe relationship, although, if you do separate, neither of you takes prisoners. Scorpio and Pisces are two other signs with whom you can find happiness, stability - even passion.

Life Love Money The Year Ahead for Capricorn

The astrological plus for you this year is that Jupiter will be riding high - at the very top of your solar chart - helping you move onward and upward. You may be feeling less than optimistic as 2017 begins - you’ve had to cope with many upsets over the past few years - but you must not lose hope. Early March and late September are times of great opportunity. You may experience a release at these times or events will conspire to change your prospects - and in a good way. There is a strong focus on home, family and property in the first half of the year, which will work in different ways for different Capricorns - a wedding in the family or a new arrival for some, a house move for others. From July the accent is still on finding your place in the world, but with a greater emphasis on career.

Love, like most things in life, improves with age for Capricorn. So, if you are reading this and feeling bruised and broken remind yourself that the older you get the better your chances of finding happiness. Love will tend to be found close to home this year or family will have a part to play in the process. And despite your fears that unless you take a long time to establish that a partner is a keeper, you should trust your instincts and take a leap of faith - and under those exciting aspects in early March and late September. Venus will transit the relationship zone in August making this a premium month for meeting Mr or Ms Right and making or re-making your vows. It is also a month when relationships that were not built to stand the test of time will reveal their cracks.

Jupiter’s presence in the area of career and life-direction bodes well for growth and success in 2017. Capricorns tend to believe in tried and tested routes to their ends, but leaps of faith and new directions are the way forward now. You may be invited to join a company that is just starting up or a chance meeting with an old colleague could lead to new position. And it’s about time you blew your own whistle - squeaky doors get the attention! The eclipses of February and August highlight the financial axis portending an upturn for some Capricorns and a financial headache for others. Either way, keep spending in check so that you have the wherewithal to cover unexpected drains on finances in late December and early 2018.
