Love and lust with a Capricorn

By Maya Khamala

Whether you look up at night to a view of the stars or not, those tiny jewels in the darkness are a source of essential information to anyone willing to tap in. It’s hardly news that in matters of lust and love, we could all use somewhat of a guiding light. Your lover's sun sign is a start. While much depends, of course, on earthly factors as well, willing students of the celestial sky are bound to learn a truth or four. 

Take Capricorns, born under the unique ’n earthy sign of the sea goat, between December 22 and January 19. Capa are ruled by serious Saturn, the planet in charge of hard work, maturity, and duty. If you’re in a sexual and/or romantic relationship with one, you might benefit from a chance to gain a deeper understanding of them. Y’know, find out what floats their goat.

Here, I offer you a few of the catchiest come-hither traits associated with your Capricorn love:

Sensitive…but can take themselves a tad seriously

Capricorns are sensitive and sensual in the sack, make no mistake. Easily embarrassed, many Caps tend to be a bit self-conscious when it comes to performing sexually. But if there’s anywhere a Capricorn feels comfortable letting down their armor, it's between the sheets—they love to laugh while bangin’, potentially as a way of easing any nervousness or shyness. As long as the laughing’s not at them, of course! Despite their conservative and sometimes uptight nature, Caps are surprisingly in touch with their physical sensuality.

Overall, if you’ve got a Cap lover keeping time in your bed, be sure to make your space a stress-free one, for both your sakes. This means cultivating the sense that free expression and mutual pleasure are king and queen. Sense of humor though your Cap may possess, try to be sensitive to their sensitivity, and avoid making them the butt of a joke, even if it’s meant kindheartedly. Otherwise they may lose interest in sex—or, over time, the relationship. If you find them sexy, attractive, or like how they're making you feel, be sure to tell them.

Horny & dominant…yet teeming with reservations

Capricorns are rather simple horny goats, even if their various reservations make them seem complex at times. Their sex is straightforward and ultra physical. They aren't usually that excited about adding toys or other accoutrements into the mix. That said, as a Capricorn gets to know you, they’ll be more willing to test boundaries. For instance, a sea goat’s take-charge personality makes them an excellent dominant partner for those so inclined to submit.  Caps are turned on by planning things out (yes, even sex), which, for some, may seem unromantic or lacking in sentimentality. They are tight-lipped, and prefer to show their affections (and their desires) rather than speak them. Still, sexual expression for them is a unique blend of organization and delicious chaos, which means you can usually expect a dash of creativity too.

Never hesitate to tell your Capricorn all about your own personal preferences and desires in bed. Be natural—if that’s in your arsenal—and give them a bit of time to open up more. Don’t expect the wild and crazy sex right away—that will cum in time. Keep in mind that Capricorns love to be nurtured, so if you can find a way to make that sexy, you're golden. Oh, and word has it they have a weakness for women in uniform!

Private…and at times opaque

Caps are surely the sign least likely to kiss and tell, so if you value your bedroom secrets, know that you can typically trust a Capricorn. Personal privacy is something Caps take uber seriously, especially in sexual matters (and financial ones too). This pronounced sense of privacy extends to life overall as well: Caps are natural loners, and can find it difficult to trust in others enough to breach privacy. As such, they sometimes miss out on sex (and love) due to a fear of rejection—or if they're unsure the connection will pay off in whatever way they happen to have in mind. A Cap’s heart is truly the toughest nut to crack of them all.

If your pace in love is equally unrushed, you may yet win your Capricorn’s heart. And you’ll get to know them really well along the way. Because Caps are so slow and steady and discreet in matters of love, they make wonderfully loyal and committed partners, but they don’t tend to tolerate wild displays of emotion, and they don’t tend to be impressed when someone is too quick to share their deepest feelings. If you’re loud, brash, or love attention, a Cap may not be for you. Capricorns care a lot about what others think, and they won’t get involved with someone who might compromise their reputation.  

Patient and determined…yet overly pragmatic

Capricorns are always willing to put in the time and effort to satisfy you. And what they do, they do very well. Capricorns prefer to take their time with sex just as they do in other matters. They often have impressive stamina and self-control both in and out of the boudoir. Unsurprisingly, when it comes to relationships, they’re ultra pragmatic and realistic to a fault, so will hesitate to invest time, effort, or money without knowing there’s something worthwhile in tow. The honest yet judgmental sea goat can be a bit cold and a lot calculating about their choice of partner. They’ve been known to drop sexual affairs once they’ve served their purpose, and will rarely commit to a real relationship unless it aligns with their long-term goals. Capricorn is driven by the material world and will seek out a partner with similar values (they want to be in a power couple). Once a Capricorn does knows they want you, they won’t give up until they’ve won you over. And guess what: whey have a very high success rate!

Nothing is more irritating to a Cap than someone who doesn’t operate at full capacity. If you needed an excuse to dress to impress, here it is. Also make sure that your home, car, bank account and appearance are well organized! If you’re getting into it deep with a Capricorn, avoid making empty promises. Your word is your bond, and an indicator of how reliable and trustworthy you are. Resist moving quickly, or being pushy. Stubborn Capricorns respond to pressure by disappearing. After all, sea goats are profoundly methodological and like to take the lead in setting a suitable pace. If their pace is far from yours, don't pretend; make a decision about whether or not you're compatible, and have an honest discussion.

Bottom line: it takes a lot to keep up with this vigorous earth sign, but if you’re up for the sweetest of challenges, sex and love with a Capricorn could be the manna you’ve been waiting for all your semi-charmed life. And where there’s an authentic connection, you’re sure to uncover deeper feelings that merit exploring—from the arms of your Cap partner.

As far as compatibility goes, no one does Capricorn better than Taurus and Virgo, with honorary mentions going to Scorpio and Pisces, but no matter what your sign, remember: if it’s worth it, lusty love conquers all. <3
