Capricorn. Solid, ambitious, and accomplished. The investment bankers of the zodiac. Great managers, even better business partners, but romance? Really?
Hell yes! Look, it’s true that Capricorn can be serious, stoic, and even a little curmudgeonly. They can be rigid, reserved, and thrifty to a fault. They’re probably never going to be the person in a restaurant telling loud stories and throwing their money around like a Leo or suddenly spending all their savings on a trip to Morocco like a Sagittarius. But what Capricorn has to offer means so much more.
Capricorn love is deep, stable, and real. They support their partners in practical ways that truly make a difference in everyday life. They might not hire a skywriter to tell you you’re beautiful, but they will be outside in the dead of winter installing a new battery in your car. Capricorn exemplifies “acts of service” as a love language. If you have a Capricorn in your life, you’ll probably never know all the little things they do to make your life easier. And they’re far too humble to tell you themselves. But day after day, they’ll put in the effort to create a solid foundation and lift some of the weight from your shoulders.
One of my best friends has a Capricorn moon. A few years ago, her husband was in a work-related accident that has left him disabled. My friend has taken on all the administrative tasks, working with attorneys and navigating the treacherous legal maze they’ve been thrust into. She manages medical appointments and court dates and paperwork. To financially support the family, she’s taken on a more difficult job outside the home where she is a model employee and already being groomed for promotion. She manages childcare and schooling and insurance and bills, and she makes it look easy. Because the greatest gift she can give her husband is to not only shoulder the burden, but to make sure he never knows how hard it is. Instead, he can focus on healing and rebuilding his life. If that isn’t love, I don’t know what is. Is it wine and roses? No, but wouldn’t you want her in your corner?
And it’s not all mortgage payments and insurance deductibles! When a Capricorn feels truly safe and appreciated, a whole new side shines through. You get to see their dark, wry humor in action. They might even get a little – dare I say it? – silly. Their soft side begins to peek through the walls, and you realize what a big heart they truly have. I’ve seen many a cold, stern Capricorn fall to pieces watching Disney movies (how do you NOT cry during Bambi?). But if you see them tear up? Do them a favor and agree their eyes were just watering from pollen. It is allergy season, after all.
Capricorn love may not be the flashiest thing around. But you can count on them to support you when the chips are down and to build a life with real value. You can count on them, period. If you want a trustworthy lover with integrity and depth who will be there through thick and thin, look no further. Capricorn has your back.
