A with-it Libra woman like you is likely to find the average Capricorn man a bit of a drag. The man born under the sign of the Goat is often a closed person and difficult to get to know. Even if you do get to know him, you may not find him very interesting. In romance, Capricorn men are a little on the rusty side. You’ll probably have to make all the passes.
You may find his plodding manner irritating and his conservative, traditional ways downright maddening. He’s not one to take chances on anything. If it was good enough for his father, it’s good enough for him. He follows a way that is tried and true.
The Capricorn man is habit-bound. Whenever adventure rears its tantalizing head, the Goat will turn the other way.
He may be just as ambitious as you are—perhaps even more so— but his ways of accomplishing his aims are more subterranean or, at least, seem so. He operates from the background a good deal of the time. At a gathering you may never even notice him, but he’s there, taking in everything, sizing everyone up—planning his next careful move.
Although Capricorns may be intellectual to a degree, it is not generally the kind of intelligence you appreciate. He may not be as quick or as bright as you; it may take him ages to understand a simple joke.
If you do decide to take up with a man born under this sign, you ought to be pretty good in the cheering up department. The Capricorn man often acts as though he’s constantly being followed by a cloud of gloom.
The Capricorn man is most himself when in the comfort and privacy of his own home. The security possible within four walls can make him a happy man. He’ll spend as much time as he can at home. If he is loaded down with extra work, he’ll bring it home instead of working overtime at the office.
You’ll most likely find yourself frequently confronted by his relatives. Family is very important to the Capricorn—his family, that is. They had better take a pretty important place in your life, too, if you want to keep your home a happy one.
Although his caution in most matters may all but drive the luxury-loving Libra woman up the wall, you’ll find that his concerned way with money is justified most of the time. He’ll plan everything right down to the last penny.
The Capricorn father is a dutiful parent and takes a lifelong interest in seeing that his children make something of themselves. He may not understand their hopes and dreams because he often tries to put his head on their shoulders. The Capricorn father believes that there are certain goals to be achieved, and there is a traditional path to achieving them. He can be quite a scold if the youngsters break the rules. You will have to balance his sometimes rigid approach and smooth things over for the kids.
