His Capricorn Horoscope
Dashing yet reserved, you’ll know Capricorn by his dignified appearance and devil of a smile. There are two sides to each of these delightful, usually successful, and always interesting people, and with luck you’ll get the best of both. One side is the consummate business executive, always ready to do the deal and more than adept at doing it his way. The other side is more than just playful and fun; he’s downright decadent! Capricorn plays at least as hard as he works; he just often will conceal that fact from most of the people he knows.
There are some Capricorn people, by the way, who manifest only one or the other side of this duality. If you get the pure business executive, he might not be all that exciting, but he’ll take great care of you. If you get the complete class clown who just wants to dally in his dark side all the time, you might want to rethink your plan. Either way, the two extremes will probably never develop their respective complementary sides. For Capricorn to be at his best, he should embody a bit of both. This makes him powerful, successful, interesting, and irresistibly sexy. Ruled by the planet Saturn, Capricorn can sometimes be a bit too distant and calculating in his personal relationships, but in bed…you have a man who will go to great extremes and any level of sexual dalliance — really, any — to make both of you totally satisfied.
Capricorn is a take-charge kind of person. He walks into your life, decides what you’re going to do and when, and pretty much expects you to go along. This isn’t about him wanting to have power or control. He really can’t help it. He has a way of seeing the big picture and knowing how things will play out, so no matter how much you think you might know better, he really does know best! This is especially true when it comes to sex. If he’s even remotely interested in a long-term relationship, Capricorn will want to have the right amount of emotional intimacy between the two of you before getting into sex. You might think it’s because he’s so respectable, and that might play into it, but remember how pragmatic he can be! He realizes that if he builds up a certain level of trust from you, the rest, i.e., the rough and dirty sex he loves, will be easy to talk you into.
Aphrodisiac: Power and/or the Verboten
Capricorn feeds on power. He’s always after it in the workplace, and he’ll get very juiced up if he senses you have it too. He also likes it when you get to have sex in some strange and unusual location, such as in your cube farm after hours or in the backseat of the car parked in your parents’ driveway — even after you’re married! The old-fashioned way to get a Capricorn horny is to tease him. The "now you have it, now you don’t" game really gets him going.
Friendship: Capricorn Has the Practical
You often look for that fatherly advice a good friend will give you, and Capricorn is never afraid to provide it. And as soon as you ask him for it, you will have won him over. As long as you’re willing to hear real solutions to your problems, you’ll appreciate what he has to say. He’s also good about taking you to places you might never have thought of as fun, and introducing you to people whom you might have seen as being "out of your league." You can hobnob with the brass at work or get to see some local celebrities he considers to be part of his normal milieu.
Capricorn doesn’t much go for simply sitting around. Being so goal-oriented, he likes to go places and do interesting things. He’ll go to a museum just as happily as he would to a dance club or bar, if not more so. He’s not much for doing what everybody else does. He wants to be enriched by all his experiences and to let you show him some things he might not have learned about before, especially in the realm of music and movies. His dry sense of humor always makes him fun to be around, and even though he tends to shun large crowds, he’ll be happy to entertain your friends with some of his stories, at least until it’s time for the two of you to go home and get into something more comfortable.
Sensuality: Capricorn Is Down and Dirty
Earthy just starts to describe the way Capricorn is about stimulating his senses. Show him your collection of sex toys — he won’t blush…but he might pick one up and start to use it! You might even want to check his briefcase for a pair of handcuffs or some silk ties. Yes, that part about Capricorn the sea goat going from the highest to the lowest is usually pretty true. He enjoys everything about sex, but the more you can make it into a game, the better. Capricorn is into the concept of winning, so you can invent sex-play scenarios where you’re the prize and he’s the one who gets it. Just be prepared to leave all your inhibitions in the closet.
Type of Lover: Capricorn Demands a Lot
Capricorn is an almost insatiable lover, and the thrill he gets out of having his "secret side" can lead him to get more than a little kinky. He won’t push you beyond your limits, so don’t worry: Usually his courtesy will overshadow his lustfulness. He can find any number of ways to express his attraction to you, and make you feel very lucky to know him. He will want you to work very hard at pleasing him also. When someone experiences sexuality on such a deep level, it takes a lot to get him where he wants to be. He’ll stimulate you to a high degree too, though, so accommodating him by finding every which way to turn him on won’t be a problem. Here’s a hint: There’s a little switch behind each of his knees. Massage him there long enough, and you’ll turn it on.
In Bed: Capricorn Knows What He Wants and
How to Get It
Capricorn’s authoritarian approach definitely extends to the bedroom. Once he’s sure you’ve bought into the idea of doing it with him, he’ll let you know what to do next. In fact, he’ll tell you what he wants, how he wants it, where it feels the hottest, and how you can make him want to scream. Meanwhile, he’ll want you to divulge all of this, too. You might be too flabbergasted to talk, so it’s okay to just let him experiment. By the time he’s done kissing, licking, and probing your body, words won’t describe the way you feel anyway. He’ll try to hold on to his orgasm as long as possible, too, to make sure you have him identified as the Best Lover Ever, but shhhhhh! You mustn’t tell anyone what he’s really like. He has a reputation to protect, after all!
In Relationships: Capricorn Likes to Keep
Capricorn definitely likes the rest of the world to look at you, him, and your relationship with respect. He is a fantastic provider and a reliable partner, but often quite traditional about the male-female dynamic. It’s not "Me Tarzan, you Jane," exactly, but there’s definitely a part of him that believes you have certain things you do better than he does, and the same goes for him. You may have to work this one out with your Capricorn, especially if you’re the independent type. He’ll respect you for what you do on the job, but he’ll love you for providing him with a warm, safe, and comfortable place to call "home." Money usually isn’t a problem. Sometimes feeling his affection can be, though.
The Heart: Capricorn Is Distant at First
Capricorn is often mistaken for being uncaring because he has a way about him that is cool and distant. This is nothing more than a self-protective façade. Capricorn is not fond of showing affection openly. You must wait, and then he’ll show it to you in deeds rather than in words or gestures. Yes, he cringes when you hug or kiss him in public, and he’s not the kind to make a big deal out of birthdays and anniversaries. Still, his heart is true, and once he has made you his partner and you have agreed to the arrangement, you couldn’t ask for a more stable, reliable, and rewarding person at your side.
Breaking Up: Make It a Practical Matter
If there’s some reason why the liaison with Capricorn isn’t working out your way, he’s fully capable of discussing and negotiating the dissolution part. Just don’t make it personal. Point out the practical reasons why you and he would be better off if you were to say it’s over. He might be bewildered, because Capricorns do have a rather high opinion of themselves in most cases, but he’ll see the wisdom in letting you go. He really doesn’t want to be with someone who doesn’t want to be there with him, doing what he wants them to do.
After it’s over, you may or may not hear from him. He is fully capable of making those dreaded booty calls, though, and you might be tempted by that terrific sex. It’s best to leave well enough alone, though, because it would be far too easy to fall back into the comfort of this relationship, even if it doesn’t totally work for you. In this world, it’s not easy to find someone who really wants to take care of you the way Capricorn does, but if you don’t want to live on his terms, it isn’t going to be pretty. One day you could still be friends, as Capricorn can easily take that big-picture view and realize it was best for both of you to be set free. He’s not the type to hold hard feelings or seek revenge. He will almost always wish you well.
Staying Sexually Fit: He Needs to Remember
to Take Care of Himself
A Capricorn will normally seek to keep his body in great shape, but there are always some who don’t do such a great job at it. The sign’s natural discipline makes it easier, but Capricorn’s laser-like focus on work can counteract that. His knees are the weak spot in his body, so he has to be careful to avoid injury. He should always do something that helps to build his bones though, because those can be a problem for him as aging begins to set in. There’s a lot he can do as a younger person to prevent the challenges of aging. You can help by making sure he has this information and by encouraging him to get ample cardiovascular workouts too — both in and out of bed.
