Is My Womanizing Ex Really A Capricorn?

Arian Behzadi

Mystic answers a Cancer woman whose womanizing ex-partner displays none of the classic Capricorn characteristics. Did he even lie about his birthday?

Dear Mystic,

i am a Cancerian chick with Aquarius Rising and a womanizing Capricorn ex. By “womanizing,” I mean “town bike.” There are few people I know who have not slept with him. And no I can’t move as we share our child together.  My question is this – Womanizing Ex is a Capricorn. I thought they were meant to be staunch and ambitious?

He changes his whole job and identity every six months, usually to get laid but sometimes as it’s a new career. He has no core identity other getting sex and partying. During our marriage, he went from right wing rugby Protestant to mallrat surfer dude to arty-farty hipster to nature loving tree hugging man. And we only clocked up three years together. 

Possibility: The Leo Moon Has Overpowered His Capricorn Characteristics

Since our split, he has been a triathlete, sculptor, Zumba instructor and now he is rockabilly. His wardrobe morphs to match that of his latest conquest. He also takes on the personality of whoever he is pursuing, it’s all about getting a root basically. He is really good at that aspect of things but his resume is, as you can imagine, haphazard. Now he seems to be showing an interest in the music of The Cure and wearing more black so I am wondering if a morph into being Goth or Emo is not next.

My question is is any of this characteristic of a Capricorn? Nothing i have read features any such traits? He does have Moon in Leo, could that do anything? 

Love, the Confused Cancerian Chick.

Some Exes Simply Become The Children’s Father – Others Become Anecdotes

Dear Confused Cancerian Chick,

I share your bemusement!  I must say, this makes me think of the God Jupiter – who in mythology used to swoop down to earth and change himself into whatever it took to get the object of his lust. A myrtle tree. A swan. Another maiden. Your Ex is an archetype! Or stereotype. He is certainly an anecdote. Some exes simply become the children’s father – others become colorful anecdotes. Once the sting of his predilections and infidelity is passed (and it does pass, as you know) you will be able to regale your friends at lunch with hilarious tales of his pursuits.

It seems like his Capricorn Sun is oddly aligning with his Leo Moon. They’re talking but the signal is mixed. He needs to do some acting courses or direct musical theater.  The conquests are most likely not so much about sex per se as they are about his ego gratification. Or even the theatre of it.  It takes a village to satisfy this man and it’s a pity you have to live in this village for the time being.

Also, this actually is kind of Capricorn. If seducing as many women as possible is his m.o., he is competent at that. 

What does everyone else think?

This is so true for a lot of cap men the cap I was married to always kept his options open that’s why he was stil single on his fb til I pulled him up about it and made up a million excuse as to why he hadn’t changed it then I find out he was stil using dating sites but it made no sense to me, he never left the house and all he could do was have sex once a week and even then he would only do it once for how ever long he needed and that’s… Read more »

I have been reading an excellent book that categorizes personality into 9 major groups. It’s called “The Enneagram: Understanding Yourself and Others in Your Life” by Helen Palmer. People are a mixture of the groups but usually there is one that stands out more than the others. If you are a 2 you are a giver and your primal sin/passion is “pride”. They are sexually aggressive/suductive, socially ambitious, and have a self-preservation of “me-first”. They take on others feelings. They are vulnerable to flattery, can be repressed until they reach the breaking point and then they lose it,. The enneagram… Read more »

My best mate was a Capricorn cancer rising … It took me nearly four years to realise everything that came out of her mouth was a lie… ??? I had NO idea!!!!: ) honestly none … Yes mystic… I woke up in October… Capricorns appear sadly to need recognition and will do anything as in my case ( like a Leo)to seem cool.

Poor buggars. His rooting days are numbered…just like my ex mates ability to lie to everyone in a small community.

You can only wish them well. Yuk lessons coming their way

I am a Cappy and a Virgo moon tau rising. I find loyalty a must in a partner. Since you get what you give it requires a loyalty from me. That said I find the guy above fascinating getting away with the constant shift in style. A bit of envy on my part. Couldn’t allow that from myself either out of some ethical consideration or fear of looking the fool. yalll can choose. I believe in Karma so that’s prolly it. In an above post there was a mention of knives I have a collection of kitchen/butcher. Love em. I… Read more »

I am a goat but very much a solo gal, and when in a relationship a one-man-woman or I get out of the relationship….. Most other female Caps I know are similar that way. But, I’ve had two Cap boyfriends, very intense and ultimately hurtful relationships…I think all the above is true of those two guys at least… I guess any sign can be a womanizer, but the Cap guys I have been with are so shameless about it and expect total loyalty from you… With these Cap guys it’s all or nothing… All for them, and nothing for you…!!!… Read more »

Sag Cap moon guy was like that – serial cheater but insisted on having the cover of a “committed” relationship at all times. I even talked to him about being in an open relationship. He insisted that wasn’t what he wanted. So weird. Open relationships can work if people agree to them. I am a one-person type myself. But I don’t judge others. I do, however, judge a person for needing to lie and manipulate all the time. Its not healthy, no matter the sign.

I dunno, sounds like all the Capricorns I know. They seem to be quite selfish and do things purely for personal gain & deflect any kind of responsibility & get others to do their work for them so they can kick back and gloat of what they’ve accomplished.

No offence to any of the Caps out there reading this!! This is just regarding the 5-6 Caps that I know of. This seems to be a common link, unfortunately 🙁

You know…I’m not surprised, actually. While I get that Cappies have a rep for the elegance of the silver and the steel, high cheekbones, etc., I’ve known quite a few who do versions of this dude’s MO. In a way, I see this as him being politically savvy, the same way a parasite navigates its host..meaning that yes, morphing as required is necessary. Of course, not saying all Caps are like this by any measure..but the low ones really do take the sign’s motto of I USE and chisel it into their DNA. I have a Cap sister, and unfortunately,… Read more »

I should have read this before I posted below but yeah, this is basically how I see a lot of Caps. One (my housemate) owes me like $2,000 and now that I’m basically applying for unemployment benefits (as that $2,000 was actually meant to help see my through my studies), he’s basically living it up and not paying me back, not doing housework and living it up and buying expensive sneakers that he doesn’t need etc. It’s like they don’t care that other’s are suffering/going without so they can live a comfortable/lavish lifestyle.

She went so far as to a) collect each day’s takings from the pizza restaurant he owns, telling the managers that she was sent to do it as he’s house bound, b) however he is house bound because the money he lent her was borrowed from his own underworld connections who’re now looking for him, c) this ended up in a shouting match at the parking lot when he also… Read more »

The first thing that popped into my head when reading the post was – “Pisces” or a strong Neptune or 12th house. 12th house is very Tofu (as Aqualala put it 🙂 ) I find people with strong 12th house/Neptune have a very fluid identity and Pisceans are the hardest sign for me to pick. Virgos, Leos, Taureans and Scorps are so easy to identify from a mile off, but Pisces, impossible!! because they take on the flavour of all 12 signs. So Philandering Cap has Saturn in Pisces. Saturn is his ruler, so that expands the Piscean traits maybe?… Read more »

He was professing his undying love for me while sneaking off to the Blue Mountains to bonk his secret love. What shit me more about this than the actual betrayal was the lies. When I asked him to leave me and go to her he didn’t want to. So I left instead, stating that his love for her is clearly greater than the love for me, otherwise a betrayal would have been incomprehensible. He got quite… Read more »

How the hell did he turn this into a guilt trip on YOU?! Maybe it’s a Lo-Earth thing? They just want what they want..instant results/ physical gratification at any cost? I had a similar situation with a multiple personality (or as I like to see it, NO real personality) type Taurean/Cap moon. Interests, musical tastes, dress etc would morph -shamelessly- at lightning speed depending on whose good opinion mattered most at the time. During a messy lets-see-out-the-rental-lease-together break-up after 8 years he was truly in a desperate state of ‘rut’ and tried to hook up with various different exes and… Read more »

Yeah – the guilt thing was “How could I abandon us and all the great stuff we had together.” I was the one walking away and hurting the relationship, not him. Amazing how the blind eye and selective memory arises. There was a bit of the seeing-out-the-lease-agreement together, and I think (for some bizarre reason) he thought I wouldn’t really move. I guess when he came home to an empty house (all the crap was mine) and only a few bits of furniture in his study it all hit home very hard. He was quite upset that I didn’t leave… Read more »

Capricorn men are one of the most sexual signs i’ve noticed & read about.
The toured aphrodisiac called ‘horny goat’s weed’ ?
Goats fuq a lot like rabbits do. Taking a goat by it’s horn? A horn is slang for a hard-on, erection,if you don’t use jargon. Cap men are UP for it, always.

It is a funny letter, hard to live with though that must be! I can only relate the story of an army brat ex who is saggi sun, Moon in Virgo with Mars in Cap. He had deconstructed his personality to fit in with other people’s needs. It was a bit scary. He told me after changing his school for the millionth time he also learned to change his accent, his clothes, his very self to fit in. He perceived that each group has a leader, a funny one, a loud one, a listener etc. so he would observe the… Read more »

I knew a Sag like that. Prided himself on being likable. Didn’t care who he liked. Vapid. Void inside. Suspect he lives in a state of permanent PTSD as he was abused as a child and never openly admitted or confronted the abuse or wounding. Still – an asshole is just an asshole in the end. I wore out my compassion on him. Void.

Yes has some sex issues from youth too. The charming thing was he also believed women TRULY were beautiful beings, even if they weren’t supermodels. He made girls love themselves until he disappointed them. The Jupiter myth/Sagg connection is interesting?

And so I don’t believe this is about ego gratification in the Cap’s case. His ego is probably fractured, I think he is self-medicating via qi vampire style.
This is Andro above btw.

Oddly, I see the Sag as doing it to hold himself in an abuse pattern – keeping it so his dirty sex life could always be something to uncover, reveal, shame him with. If he chose to have an open relationship – no shame right? But he craves the shame. Has no awareness of the craving. I call that karma.

A lot of Virgo, hmmm – that could …pendulum into Pisces territory. That might explain the chaemeleonic traits….Opposites are the same at some point of the continuum, non?? His ascendant is a mutable I’m guessing.

Men like him become sad caricatures of themselves circa 50 years of age, if not earlier, btw. And one reason for that is that they ALL either smoke, drink or do recreational drugs. And too much sex depletes their Qi.

Whatever pulls or laps his goat. I know cap women and men who create this drama — that they’re being pursued by their exes and others — with their current partner to get them riled up. Or even that they have a “stable” and if they’re not getting enough with whoever, they can just go to their stable. Power tripping. Cap is alot about power, with contributions from other planets in their chart. If they have a venus in aquarius (What fun!), or venus in capricorn (even moreso eeek) and venus in pisces (make sure he’s wearing condoms), venus in… Read more »

I reckon Mystic is onto it with overplaying the Leo Moon theory. I’ve known shitload of Cappy males in my life and the only one of them who could be described as a total manslut is my Cappy uncle, but he didn’t go around changing his persona in order to get laid (he’s a good looking, rich and successful self-made man so chicks just throw themselves at him) AND he put his playboy ways behind him when he met the true love of his life a few years back.

Yes, it’s like pan gone all wrong. The guy needs a stage less a village arena as he sounds like he’s on leo moon self gratification auto pilot. The character change and quest sounds deeply misplaced stage and character play ambitions

P.s I’ve dated people with multi virgo before and it can manifest as a strange kind of service, in that I can imagine if you couple that with the ego of cap and leo, the desire to be the ultimate desire above all and anyone else is tempting for the insecure xx

Sounds kind of hilarious.
Most Caps I know have all been rather conservative, practical and a bit shy.

But then, they did like their sex, so perhaps the multiple guises are a means to an end.

I know some awesome peeps with Leo moons…but I have a fair bit of Leo in my chart, and am a bit of a style changer too, so I can kind of relate. I do tend to absorb fashion influences from my love interests, but never change careers!

Great letter. Something about that Leo Moon, it always carries the low traits. Never met a man or woman with that placing who didn’t do lower. I’m Leo rising and have countless Leo sun friends, but the moon is another animal altogether. And yes, the Moon in Leo man is a shameless womanizer, unless he’s a completely aimless layabout. The only celeb I can think of who really works it well is David Lee Roth. I think the Capricorn sun is irrelevant here. Mystic is right, he’s overplaying the moon.

Re: Capricorn sliding into whatever they are looking for. If these women looked into him well enough they would realise there is no background long term of tree hugging, rugby loving, arty rockabilly. Does that mean there is no commitment or stability long term involvement and genuine background?

I’m doing a Liz Greene take on this- Saturn is in… Pisces, the sign of returning to the Source , which is ruled by the grandmaster of illusion..Neptune. Neptune adores new roles, attention, being what you want him to be. Capricorn has all that drive and focus until it’s done.

And there does seem to be that trendiness/New Agey/Holistic bent to his personae. All and nothing. How exhausting to keep creating a new shell every cycle! LOL!

I love the Zeus analogy that MM made!
