Capricorn relationships

Those with this sign take life seriously and a sense of duty and responsibility can mean that they will take their turn at the household chores and all else.  However, they might let their work play too large a role in their life and they can forget that life is supposed to be fun.  Capricorns can be wonderfully efficient and organized but they ought to try and leave their managing role at the office – at home they should allow themselves to relinquish control.  They also tend to play the role of a parent in relationships and need to remember that not everyone may appreciate being treated like a child.

Capricorn romance

Capricorn is a worldly, practical sign and not a particularly soft or romantic one.  People born under it can be careful with money, but they can come up with classy, upmarket surprises if they make the effort. In most things the typical goat is very traditional and so will often hold traditional and even conservative views about marriage; believing that it is a sacred institution that one should respect and uphold. Thus, goats take their marriage vows seriously and will hang on in there through life’s peaks and troughs.  However, some can be rather unbending and the men in particular, may be too shy and matter‐of‐fact to be good at making romantic gestures or at being able to say just the right thing that will make things better.  For this reason, they don’t always inspire loyalty from their partners.
