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

Everything improves with age in Capricorn land, and over the next two and a half years you will have opportunities to reveal your talents and abilities. Whether you take on the mantle of power career-wise or acquire greater personal, familial and financial responsibilities you can make your mark. You should think of this January as the beginning of a two-year programme in which you can plant seeds which will yield a rich harvest in 2020. While Pluto will continue to eliminate the dead wood from life, especially for the 9-13 January birthdays, Uranus will be in an harmonious position from mid-May, helping December Goats in particular to break new ground and change the pattern of the last seven years. The eclipse of 13 July is a signal for one of your ships to come in, although July-August could also bring a long-standing difficulty to a tipping point. Late March, late June, and late September are other periods that take you to a crossroads, and certainly set you on the right track.

Saturn in your sign brings with it responsibilities and the desire for stability, constancy and consistency. And to this end, many Capricorns will find a life partner in 2018 while others will put a long-term love affair on a legal footing. The problem is that if you make a decision with your head rather than your heart, the short-term gains you acquire from stability and security will soon fade. Without love and passion, by 2020 the relationship could be in trouble. May and June are the best months to find love and resolve romantic uncertainties, and the mid-July eclipse is another point at which relationships are made or broken. Always classy, this year you are more likely to attract a partner of high standing and in high places; and if you are planning a wedding, you’ll want to impress.

No one can say these past seven years have been easy, and some of you have been knocked off your perch, which is why Saturn’s passage through your sign is so important. This planet should give you a new resolve and a strong belief in your value. It is time to branch out, to diversify and accept fresh challenges. It may take two years to put a new business on firm tracks, but you will have moments of sheer good luck and at least one person will open doors for you. Other Capricorns will rise up the ranks, in some cases after an opportunity to take over an unexpectedly vacant position. From August, Venus will spend long periods in the career zone of your solar chart, shining a favourable light on your talents. The majority of 2018’s eclipses fall on the axis of finances so there will be unexpected gains – an inheritance or redundancy package, possibly a property sale – but if a job comes to an end it will be sudden and surprising. It’s time for a change…
