Capricorn in Love
At times, Capricorn needs a partner who is serious, while at other times he needs a lighthearted mate who will simply make him laugh. The latter will have an almost innocent quality — a purity — that Capricorn is drawn to.
Which mate Capricorn ends up with, though, depends on where he is emotionally and mentally in life. This may be true for all of us to one extent or another, but it's especially true for Capricorn.
Ultimately, Capricorn's path is always serious business. No matter how hard you make him laugh about himself and the world, his path always leads back to the same riddle. Regardless of how hard he works, how far he climbs, or how emotionally or physically rich he becomes, it's never enough.
That said, Capricorns can be very independent. They don't like being told what to do or how to do it. They seem malleable enough, and can get along with anybody, though they don't necessarily enjoy the company of all. A mate must be stimulating, engaging, knowledgeable, and, most importantly, grounded, in order for Capricorn to truly respect him. If Capricorn senses that his partner is off kilter, he'll run for the hills. He won't try to change her or help her as, say, Cancer would.
Capricorns respect those who are well informed. If you talk a good game and don't know your stuff, for example, forget Capricorn. He'll smell you out! Make sure to admit it if you don't know what you're talking about. Don't fake it. Capricorn will know anyway.
Meanwhile, if you're getting words of passion, love, and forever-after, pay attention. Capricorn doesn't spew out or toss around romantic words just to woo you and then leave you cold. He's got to be somewhat convinced in order to do it. True, he's a little better at having meaningless adventures than Virgo is, but eventually he'll want something that means family and future to him. And he takes that very seriously, indeed.
