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