If you want to Understand a male Capricorn's behavior, it means delving into the psyche of the Capricorn mind. Of course, understanding or attributing motives to an astrological sign can be a dicey prospect; few can claim being able to see into the heart of man. However, there are certain characteristics that are attributed to the male Capricorn, and that's what you'll find below.

Fully Understanding Male Capricorn Behavior

In order to understand a Capricorn man fully, you need to understand what shapes his view of the world.

His Family History and Ancestry Is Important

Understanding male Capricorn behavior begins with his family history and/or ancestry. This is because as Cancer's opposite sign, the family, has a strong pull on Capricorn. In fact, many Capricorns find researching their family tree an enjoyable pastime. Two characteristics strongly associated with Capricorn are ambition and drive, but these traits have their roots in the male's family.

  • This comes from Capricorn's ruling planet, Saturn. Saturn is seen as the father, and in personal astrological charts, Saturn actually rules the father or father-figure in one's life.
  • Because of this, Capricorn can sometimes have an austere personality that may come across as standoffish, but this is really just Capricorns upholding their family beliefs of strength and keeping a stiff upper lip.

The truth be told, this appearance couldn't be farther from the truth! The male Capricorn just looks this way. What he is really trying to do is uphold the tradition or values that have been handed down to him through his family lineage.

He Has Intense and a Strong Sexual Stamina

While not readily apparent to the casual observer, many who know a male Capricorn can attest to their strong intense sexual appetite and stamina. Do you know the expression, "randy as a goat?" Well, that accurately describes many Capricorns. While they appear distant, they are actually quite sexual and passionate. These traits help them quite a bit in their everyday lives as they channel that passion into their careers.

Capricorns Are Ambitious and Materialistic

Understanding male Capricorn behavior means understanding Cap's symbol. In nature, the goat takes acute pleasure in climbing over the roughest of terrains to reach the peak of many a mountainside. Capricorn behaves much in the same manner. Sure footed, steady, and dogged, Capricorns yearn to see the world from the top down, and they will work hard to ensure that this dream comes true.

  • Along the climb, they want to enjoy the "spoils" they've achieved during the journey.
  • In modern times, that can mean driving a swanky car or living in a posh neighborhood. There is nothing wrong with enjoying the fruits of one's labor.
  • One challenge Capricorn males experience is realizing they're defined by their possessions.

He Craves Security

Much like his opposite sign of Cancer, Capricorn craves security, but unlike Cancer who finds this security in people, Capricorn often finds it in things. He feels safe knowing that he has acquired a great number of things. As long as he realizes that they are just that; mindless objects, then there is no reason why he shouldn't enjoy himself.

Dealing With Capricorn Emotions

Something most people don't realize about Capricorn men is that they are often sad. This doesn't necessarily mean that they are depressed, but it does mean that from time to time, the responsibilities of their everyday lives can wear on them and feel "heavy," For Capricorn, this is perfectly normal, and should not pose any long-term problems kept in check.

They Express Love Clearly

Another surprising trait of Capricorn men is that they readily, especially in the beginning of a romance, express their love very clearly. In fact, when Capricorn men fall in love, they are usually astonished; they usually believe, perhaps because they tend to be so serious, that love will never happen for them.

Pluto and the New Cycle

A new fourteen year cycle is just beginning for Capricorn. Pluto, Scorpio's ruler, has now moved into Capricorn after a long 13 year stay in Sagittarius. This aspect will now radically transform the way Capricorn thinks and how they look at the world. Pluto's job is to unearth, but this is an excruciatingly long process. From now and into the next decade and beyond, Capricorn men will begin questioning the values they were raised with, and after a time, decide what elements to keep and what best to be rid of.

Capricorn Men Are Loyal and Committed

Understanding Capricorn men is no easy feat, but some things, like Capricorn's loyal and steadfast dedication to achieve their goals and meet their commitments are mainstays of their personality. Whether its work, family or romance-oriented, you can count on your Capricorn man, as sure-footed as always, to be there in the end.
