Dating The Zodiac: Capricorn

capricorn and dating

Dating A Capricorn?

Once I dated a Capricorn who was – I swear – the stingiest person on Gaia. It was not chic, elegant frugality. It was low-level, verging on ripping people off all the time, always with a fancy justification.

For instance, all the lavatory paper in his loo had different packaging. It seemed off. I inquired and voila the long-winded explanation about how he “acquired” it unconventionally because the government should actually pay for it but they don’t and that he was also against pulp plantations.

He was stealing it where-ever he went but saw himself as the Robin Hood of bog paper. Furthermore, there would be hours spent on the phone to haggle with some bank or phone company over five cents.

He was, however, highly into sex as a performance sport, with competitive metrics and all. If orgasm delivery quotas were not met, there would be an existential crisis. I think it had to do with sex being free. It didn’t last long.

Read Dating A Capricorn stories in the comments below and perhaps share yours?

I’ve only dated one Capricorn. I’ve never been more physically attracted to anyone in my life. It wasn’t just her looks, it was her presence, her aura. Absolutely scintillating. But, she was dishonest, deeply hypocritical, and unreasonably stubborn. Also career-obsessed and quite boring.”

Not all Capricorns though…

‘I dated one. Oh so stable and dependable. Liked punk rock, but wouldn’t walk on the grass if there was a sign. Sure, could save $ if was for some boy toy. Lovely person. Used to look up “Hermit” on seek.com,’ Lux Interior is My Co-Pilot sets us straight.

And you? What’s your experience with Capricorn and dating?

NEVER AGAIN – married one, brother, sister and worked for one – Mad Caps – bullies, shallow, angry, status focused…breaking people’s spirits is their kind if fun I left my husband 3 years ago and am just now feeling stronger and nearly healed – working for the above mentioned Mad Cap made me realise how strong i had become – his attempts at breaking me shined a light on my growth Now all I want is to work on my business with my twin sis and keep away from power tripping types looking to put the boot in and hope… Read more »

“breaking people’s spirits is their kind of fun” Sounds like my Capricorn dad, who was also a bully. I can’t think of a more explosive combo than a Cap father and an Aries daughter. Me: “why” Him: “because I said so”- end of story. Aries will follow the leader when they feel confident in the leader’s decisions and leadership. Cap wants their authority unquestioned. Violent, bitter, xenophobic, misogynist, terrifying- that was my father. What parts of that were Capricorn, I don’t know. Except for the need for unquestioned authority in his domain. To be fair- he was also a good… Read more »

Hey DP I can imagine that was a tough upbringing – it is the dynamic of “Great Leader” v doormat that got up my goat – and weekly binge drinking (ex army Sargent) and violent mood swings until it got physical that made me pack up and leave while he was sleeping it off….always insisting I was to put him on a pedestal while he was wiping his feet on me. I still have a few emotional scars from the constant put downs and mockery but every year gets a bit easier….sure your Mum is a bloody legend!

Hi Anon,
That all sounds eerily familiar. He definitely treated my mother just that way. And yes, she is indeed a legend and considered by many of my friends to be a saint! (she also had twin boys to deal with)

So glad to hear you got out and that it is getting easier. x

Reading this made me think, my Dad must have a Cap AC. He is Pisces Sun, but he always ruled with this unquestionable authority, very tight lipped, etc. Horrible, oppressive childhood I am still – most likely my entire life – will be, recovering from.

I feel I can truly empathize with you.

I am rereading Anais Nin’s biography by Deirdre Bair and hello? Henry Miller being Capricorn as fuck all over it. Courting upscale Parisians (status) to rip them off of food and material goods in order to not have to work at menial jobs with a ceiling, highly promiscuous, knew every brothel in town even though he was constantly broke. I wonder what other aspects were involved because he really seemed to live off women during his formative years. What was going on there?

Veronica

Yep, he was a shit 🙂
there was that movie about he and Anais Nin a long time ago, and they both came off as deeply unpleasant.
But I adored her writing. Reading her short stories as a teen was the first time I actually became aware of a writing style as an art, each story was so transporting.

But, she was dishonest, deeply hypocritical, and unreasonably stubborn. Also career-obsessed and quite boring. Despite the negatives, there’s some incredible charismatic there, and she was quite good in the sack, though I may have high standards (Mars – Scorp/ Libra-Virgo Cusp).

Never shagged a Cap but have been pursued by one ardently. He was a canny Scot with a profound interest in sex – so much so he pondered the business of whore houses as he was unimpressed with the management and security of his favourite brothel. He’s in Medellin now and no doubt enjoying all there is on offer there. He enjoyed breeding Rottweilers for a past time. He is a good person and was hard on himself and others which I saw as very Cappy. He treated the world like a chaotic garden he tended out of desperation, not… Read more »

So funny about the ‘free’ sex. When I was dating one he lavished ‘us’ with fine dining and hotels -all that he got discounts on, and that he shared as ‘status’ updates. Now we’re not together if we go out he makes me pay half or all of it! He works very hard but yeah anything spent has to be adding to the status. A total status whore was my initial impression. And he won’t leave me alone since breaking up. He can’t let chosen ones out of his harem. Enough is never enough. Narcissistic. There is a definite sensitive… Read more »

I am Capricorn Sun, Virgo Asc and Libra Moon. I tend to not feel like your usual Capricorn, sometimes the Sun sign horoscopes don’t seem to resonate with me. I have learned that Libra is very dominant in my chart: Mars, Moon, Pallas, Saturn and Pluto. I think I have more of a frugal/splurge complex. My friends are usually the people who ask me “but isn’t that expensive?” I don’t consider myself to be a spendthrift, though.

Those placements would suggest someone with a love of luxury or less stingy than the average Caps.

I am a Capricorn who just spent a fortune on her friends and family for Christmas . I dumped my lower Neptunian Pisces partner because he was frighteningly stingy , telling him ” you’ll have nothing because you cling to every cent ”
I appalled at the negative comments about frugal Capricorns. If anything , we are generally self sacraficing in our frugality and unfailingly generous to others with our time AND money . As Kris Kristofferson once said ,” Jesus was a Capricorn “

I don’t get it either. I was chatting on Facebook the other day with a Cappy ex work colleague and after a few messages he said “hey, let’s catch up for lunch – my shout” 🙂

That’s after he offered to fix my computer for free if I have any problems loading the new IOS system.

And another Cap friend randomly hands money to the homeless when he comes into some money.

I can’t stand stingy, tight-arse peeps. The worst is an Aqua with moon in Cancer.

I find stinginess and people’s attitudes towards money has more to do with the Moon. Not surprising that a Cancer Moon would be tight-fisted.

Well, I am a double Cappo with a Libra Asc, who was married for 10 YEARS to a Cap man-Aries moon, no less. Honestly, I don’t know how we survived. We fought a lot about who was going to decide. But my ex was never stingy. He was very generous with his moolah, and wanted to give me the world on a platter…we had a slightly mad relationship to spending money on anything that was pleasure-related (food, movies, restaurants, clothing…). That’s what happens when a Libra and Taurus Ascendents get together. And our Venus were conjunct. But the SEX described… Read more »

As much as I dislike Aries one thing I cannot fault the fire signs on is that they ARE generous. I come from a hospitable European background so I cannot stand stingy in any capacity. It’s all opulent giving and sharing in my Universe – but you can’t borrow nada ;P #SoTaurus

Haha…yes, my European friends are very particular. Yes, you may have or borrow, but it’s very clear what the parameters are.

Wow, so much hate for Capricorns. Good thing we are so cold and callous, otherwise we might get our feelings hurt….actually every Capricorn I’ve known has been overly sensitive and prone to depression as a result. But every single one of them would give a person the shirt off their back.

Both grandfather’s, my father, my Godmother and me are all Caps so needless to say I am a fan. My current boyfriend is Virgo Sun with Capricorn rising and he is the sweetest significant to date.

I’m a Capricorn. I’ve known several Caps. We are very diffierent but I can’t say I have met a cold Capricorn. Misunderstood at times maybe. I know some who are stingy but I have also known some who are the most generous. We do tend to have a “my way or the highway” approach… Still working on my relationships…

We are lovely when doing our better side! It’s just hard to ignore our baser instincts since we are so present in many peoples’ lives: managers, positions of power, etc.

Maxene Schreck

I completely agree. I was being sarcastic with my ‘cold and callous’ comment because I feel that is typically how many would describe us. But the Capricorns I know (myself included) tend to be very sensitive, often trying mask their vulnerability. I am willing to admit that sometimes I react with misplaced anger in an attempt to hide hurt feelings. But the point is that those feelings are definitely there. I have observed the frugality but I do not understand why that would be considered a bad thing. I think it shows self discipline. “My way or the highway” most… Read more »

Re: vulnerability. Cappies are so set on “appearing” proper and to do the right thing, that we get caught up appearing like rocks. “If I don’t react at all, then it means I won’t have the wrong reaction…” I think we can be scarier than Scorpies, since we can hide so much under that proper facade. But unfeeling is not what is going on…unsharing is more like it. No one likes Caps when we show others they have to take responsibility, but those same people LOVE us when we take responsibility for a difficult situation or go clean up some… Read more »

I’m a Capricorn, and I have to say, even I’m not that bad w being cheap. Yes, I make pennies scream in pain for the fun of it, but I don’t go full retard w it. Sex however is a favorite hobby, providing I am actually in a relationship w that person. I’m kind of stingy w that too otherwise.

I think it’s been stated before in a different thread, but we are aware of people not immediately taking a liking to us and we accept it. So what? I have plenty of special people in my life, I am hardly concerned about a stranger forming an uninformed opinion about me.

Another Capricorn Dating Tip:

If you and the Cappie been going out for awhile (few months) and you never seem to go public places or get introduced to his work buds or casual friends, you are prolly F-buddy and nothing more. This happened to several of my friends. It means he is probably embarrassed to be seen with you in public but the sex is good so he is sort of staying because of that…for now.

Dude. YOU might need to chill. Nobody is implying that your particular guy is a pefophile. It’s a common and socially accepted expression.

My first two lovers were Capricorn men with addictions: the first to sex/porn and the second, more classically, to riding the white horse. They were both great in bed, the first one in particular. Both ended acrimoniously, and sadly, both died too young. I have Venus in Cap and from the point of my saturn return switched from attracting men much older than me to men much younger than me (and no more Caps!). I am currently married to a younger non-Cap and the one thing we fight about with regularity is shared resources. It is driving us both crazy.… Read more »

One shared bank account equally contributed to by both for shared household stuff – bills/mortgage/rent/food/petrol/medical etc. Say each of you earn $10. Each person puts $5 into the household account, to make sure living costs are covered. Plus have another shared account for savings/investments. Say each person contributes $2 of their $10 to shared savings/investments. Then add two SEPARATE bank accounts for personal spending (or saving) on whatever you like. That $3 you have left? Buy yourself nice shoes, or whatever tickles your fancy – no questions asked (or tolerated). If there’s a huge discrepancy in earnings between you and… Read more »

We have very different ideas about money. I have savings, he has debt. Tried the joint account thing but we couldn’t make it work and it was stressing us both out. There are so many expectations around marriage and money. I think I’m going to try Virgo Rising’s suggestion. Just wish we could talk about money without it triggering some kind of argument.

Money is a BIG issue to discuss before getting married.

Not to brag (maybe just a little 🙂 but I am exceptional with money.

I could never date, let alone marry someone who doesn’t have their shit together re: money.

It’s not how much you earn, but how you MANAGE money, that counts.

Good luck Alouetta. Your man may need money therapy – for the sake of your marriage, solvency & sanity.

I back this up. If you plan on getting married, make sure that debt is resolved or there is paperwork delineating it. I have several friends who were in love with someone in debt, married them..then several yrs down the road, damaged the other one’s credit!

this is wierd. the capricorn men I know are borderline emo. they have a truckload of saggi in their charts and are more “rugged outdoorsmen” than loo paper stealing nancyboy.
a couple do have a poverty mentality though, which intrigues me, in a sad way. I think they have loss of father, symbolic or literal, in young adulthood to contend with.
cap men strike me as earthiness-meets intelligence. all of them are “handy” types.
I’m not sure if I have wanted to bed any of them but i consider them lovely all-purpose friends [maybe except for the most socially nuanced occasions]

Cap men are great as friends, but too politically correct for anything more. Their obsession with status leaves me cold. Can I read a book instead? They’re perfect little machines. Not a lot of emotional depth. Some of them do have a good, dry sense of humour, which I quite like. Very traditional in the way they approach gender roles, especially 40+ generation. I think they like the idea of the ‘good little wife’. Eeuw. Mystic, the ‘orgasm delivery’ tracking made me LOL. Everything is a ‘duty’ to Caps. Will they meet their KPIs?

Mystic, your loo paper anecdote made me laugh and brought back a distant memory.

This mystified me because he seemed very private and worried about what other people thought of him, yet he’d openly make such a terrible impression on house guests.

I usually find that Mars and Venus shows what qualities folks are ATTRACTED to. But Eros and Psyche actually shows someone’s TRUE love style when they’re in love with ‘the One’. But that’s just me.

That’s funny. I consider Saggos more know-it-all and pedantic vs. Caps. The Caps I know like to act like an expert in something and just assume you’ll just fall in line.

One more thing – they WANT the ‘good life’ but they don’t necessarily want to pay for it. I usually find Capricorn women to be the opposite – they love knowing they can afford the things they desire.

But if so, they will shut their mouths, rear up to the cash register and slap that wallet out for the woman they love and that useless shit she wants but it makes her happy so okay.

Yes, you can just tell which ones you are meant to mate with. They just smell so good. 🙁 However, just because you are physically compatible, it doesn’t guarantee a mental, emotional, or spiritual connection. That would be like winning the lottery to match all of those at once. The pill causes women’s sense of smell to change and crave the smell of kin versus that of genetic strangers. The pill mimics pregnancy and it is normal to crave the smell of kin because they are the ones who help you raise the baby. You are naturally programmed to mate… Read more »

I’m ok with money but not brilliant with it. I can be stingy but also very generous. It depends on the money flow at the time tbh. In relationships though I tend to put up with a lot and probably stay longer than I should, or stayed in the relationship when I wanted to break up.
