Capricorn's Planet: ♄ Saturn.
It seems that the Capricorn Man, like Hercules, is capable of holding the world on his mighty shoulders. At least, it is those like him who lend the world stability and solidity. Tradition, family values, honor, duty, discipline - without all of this, the world would have devolved into chaos, and it is largely thanks to Capricorn that this has not come to pass.
Such is the nature of the Capricorn Man that from an early age, he starts aspiring for the highest peaks. However, because he's used to relying on his own strength, his character becomes more resilient with age, and his power keeps growing and growing. Ambition, acting as his primary engine, gradually transforms Capricorn into a remarkably integrated, determined, and hard-working individual; he is up to practically anything he sets his mind to.
How to Win Over a Capricorn Man
Despite appearing externally confident and unflappable, even a bit dry, the Capricorn Man will be truly grateful if you publicly (preferably in the presence of others) acknowledge his merits. Aside from the various major and minor achievements that comprise his life, he values ordinary human compassion and simple praise. But people around him don't indulge him in this! Some see him as an invincible bio-robot, devoid of human passions, others outright envy his ability to work towards his set goals. In other words, show the Capricorn Man that you appreciate what others do not see in him - and you will find the key to his stern but loyal heart.
However, even when in love, Capricorn is unlikely to rush to put an engagement ring on your finger. The thing is, for him, family is the foundation of foundations, and he wants to be absolutely sure that your marriage is for the long haul. Ideally, for a lifetime.
It's no wonder that Capricorn can take so long to find his other half, having a whole set of demands for her. Only if you are a domestic, loyal, loving woman who knows how to behave in society and dress well (this is very important for the ambitious Capricorn!), do you stand a chance of becoming his wife.
Don't forget that to a Capricorn man, the concept of "family" includes all of his numerous relatives. So if you want to make the best impression on a Capricorn – get his family’s approval and support, primarily, from his parents.
In addition, it would be absolutely wonderful if you can subtly demonstrate your talents as a future mother and homemaker to the Capricorn - for instance, cook a delicious meal or play with someone's child in his presence. Conversely, the best way to lose the calm, conservative Capricorn is to frighten him with excessive activity, pushiness, and a fervent display of your feelings.
Relationship with a Capricorn Man
If you're wise enough to understand that actions are more important than words, then Capricorn is your ideal man! Yes, he won’t send you syrupy text messages with emoticons, or coo and call you darling, but you can be certain that he doesn’t turn his head after every skirt, and the family budget doesn’t get spent on slot machines. The word "love" may only be spoken by Capricorn twice a year - on your birthday and on International Women’s Day - but his actions will tell you about it every moment.
A Capricorn man will do everything to ensure that you want for nothing, that your home is a place of plenty, and that you and your children never doubt his limitless devotion. With his broad shoulders, he will shield you from all the storms and problems of the outside world, insulate you from failures, and provide confidence in the future.
He possesses another amazing quality: as he ages, he grows younger at heart, and almost in body! In his youth, the Capricorn man, due to his seriousness and responsibility, usually looks older than his years, but as time passes, having reached certain heights, he makes up for lost time. Up until old age, he can maintain a youthful, strong appearance and a clear gaze - much to the envy of his peers. But his strong feelings for you will not change: even at seventy, his love will burn with the same clear, steady, confident light as it did on your wedding day.
Capricorn as a Father
Capricorn is a very responsible, caring, and strict father. For him, children are an integral part of family life. Perhaps, he might be overly oppressive to a child, sternly imposing his will, but no one can accuse the Capricorn man of giving too little attention and effort!
