Breakups and Capricorn




Capricorn's loyalty is legendary, its patience seemingly unending, and it’s usually far too pragmatic about love to rock the boat when it knows it’s onto a good thing. This star sign is no quitter and if a Capricorn dumps you, it can only be for one reason: you’re getting in the way of their ambitions or holding them back somehow.


Because Capricorn’s main agenda is worldly advancement, it looks to its relationships to further – and certainly not hinder – its material and social aspirations. If you’re dragging a Capricorn down, trashing their good name or simply not showing them enough respect, you’ll soon be an unwanted liability. Avoid this happening by giving them the support and encouragement they so badly need.

Okay, so it’s not always that easy – Capricorn's relentless pursuit of success and status means their career often comes before love in their order of priorities. Although many Capricorns make great providers, they’re not necessarily into togetherness, and if you’re looking for a full-time companion, you might feel rather short-changed. Capricorn's workaholic nature is a major cause of breakups with this sign.

What you need to understand about Capricorns is that they find it painfully hard to express their feelings. They are also notoriously reluctant ever to spend more money than they absolutely have to spend. These people's frugality – both emotional and material – often spells death for their romantic relationships. But before you rush into dumping a Capricorn, don't judge a book by its cover. Capricorn's sterling qualities of patience and dependability only become apparent over the course of time.

The big problem for many people involved with a Capricorn is waiting around for the Goat finally to 'get there'. Capricorn's slow plodding approach, its cautiousness and its rigidity can be big issues of contention with faster-moving, more spontaneous types who eventually lose patience with this sign. Bear in mind though, if you're a bit rash by nature, that the hare and the tortoise often make a great team!


If you’ve broken up with a Capricorn, you can expect them to give you the cold shoulder and go into a major sulk that seems to go on forever before they'll consider getting back together again. When things go wrong, Capricorn has a tendency to be quite gloomy and pessimistic, and easily sinks into depression. Surprisingly, however, it responds very positively to subtle wit. 

A top tip for rebuilding a failing relationship with a Capricorn is to appeal to their famously dry sense of humor. Once they see the irony in a situation, they can get a quiet chuckle out of even the biggest disasters and immediately start to soften up. Nothing happens fast, however, with Capricorns, so you should be prepared for it to take some time to win back a Capricorn ex.


• Don't take their dark moods too seriously - they just need jollying along.
• Be grown-up and responsible - maturity and reliability are very important to them. 
• Show a bit of respect - ridicule is the biggest deal-breaker for this sign.
