Signs a Capricorn Likes You

I'm a Midwesterner with a background in writing and media. My articles are mainly about relationships, dating, and heartbreak.

Sign a Capricorn is interested in You

Capricorn might not be as initially forward about expressing their interest in you as say more of a fire and water sign would. Earth signs take their time to digest matters of the heart. Their main focus on what that they discern through are more grounded matters, things they can reach out and touch. So you can expect Capricorn to take her time expressing herself. Capricorns like to focus on one person at a time, and are a fairly monogamous type. Capricorns are people born from December 21 – January 19.

You may have to look more at their actions than their words to figure them out. Air signs rule communication; earth signs rule actions. If you want a flood of words, date an air sign. If you want someone who is constantly working on the house and doing acts of services -- date an earth sign.

  • They are natural planners. If they like you, they will try to spend time with you and consistently, frequently, and wonderfully. They see spending time with someone as emotionally comforting.
  • Capricorns are more practical minded. They like to solve problems or make things more efficient. This are traits you can see in a number of earth signs.
  • Both genders have a reserved and seriousness about them in order to discern what's around them. This sign does come from a place of hibernation right after the more festive, holiday like Sagittarius.
  • Sarcasm dwells in Capricorn and Aquarius. You can expect them to want to take charge, and if they like you, you can see that they want to help you in some kind of way.
  • Capricorns are straightforward, but they generally take their time. Once they figure out they like you, you will become a focus for them.
  • They will ask you out, they will do fairly traditional things in the dating realm.
  • They will want to give you advice.
  • Earth signs -- they tend to be sensual, physical affection -- if they're giving you a hug or breaking the touch barrier then they are showing they like you.
  • They are picky. If they have decided to reach out and touch you, they are interested in you.

The Nature of a Capricorn

A Capricorn is a cardinal sign for winter. They are the 10th sign of the zodiac, and I find people born in the latter half of the zodiac have a certain more aged or mature kind of vibe. They are not as fast paced about trying to move and shake the world and get things manifested -- like an Aries. They are here to be more introspective, consider the world, and how to improve upon what is there. Capricorn in particular is reserved for this reason, they are all about conserving what they have to survive the harsh parts of winter. They hold onto what they can, and get rid of that which has no purpose for them.

Capricorns are really good at managing their resources, and they are great at keeping to traditions, generally a loyal sign, and an honest and straightforward sign.

I find that Capricorns are often looked at as the family zodiac. This is someone who does well with a spouse and children because they have the right kind of focus to serve those around them and keep them on track for what is necessary. They are not afraid to discipline their children, but still can be fun -- goat like -- with the kiddos.

What are Earth Signs? How Does this Influence Capricorn?

Earth signs are practical, sensual, they want to deal with things that they can reach out and touch. They have the mindset to cut through all the density we have in the physical world. The opposite is the air sign who cuts through all the density of ideas and forms, but they don't always like dealing with the manifestations of those ideas. An Aquarius might pass out if you force them to put furniture together and for long stretches of time.

Capricorn does well with plans, the here and now, sees a vision through, and keeps things on a budget. Practicality can feel like colder-detached energy, that comes from being in winter and at the beginning of it.

Capricorns in a love relationship will really focus on building something to go forward. They want to make a partnership with someone they see as high standard. The 10th House is concerned with status, they may want nice clothing, doing serious work and making good money, or having a decent house. Be careful that you're not just a trophy wife or husband, but mean more to them than that. They should respect your opinions and really listen to you. You can expect them to be high-focused ambitious, and pickier about who they really let close to them.

Capricorns make sure that things are up to scale, they don't like wasting their time, and they want things that are efficient and practical. They do desire a lot of intimacy, and they do like someone who is grounded but also sweet. The sweetness helps compliment their more sarcastic ways. Capricorns are generally diplomatic, they have some amount of stubbornness to them, and this comes from being an earth sign.

Capricorn: Here to Succeed

Capricorn can be picky in a relationship. If things are not meeting their standards or visions, they might try to redirect or reroute things to where they things should be. They can be cold or a bit distant. They can focus too much on the mechanics of the relationship rather than the emotions. But they feel like if the mechanics and foundation are setup, you can then show up emotionally. Air signs can actually be this way too.

Earth signs can put restrictions on emotions and really restrain them. This is part of why they come off so serious. There is a little bit of fear in expressing themselves and breaking some kind of mold. They need someone to encourage them to be vulnerable and really show those more personal sides of themselves.

A Capricorn will really focus on making things work, this can be a bit grinding for someone who needs a bit more air to think and feel, especially if they are still trying to figure out their feelings. Capricorn needs to know that all the work they are doing is properly taking care of the people that are in its world. Capricorn who isn't in a relationship will probably push large portions of this energy they have to serve into work. They do like to have a home and a romantic safe space because it helps soften them when they can be very hard and rigid people. They like to know their conservative choices are helping another.

Capricorns are often drawn to be career driven or love driven. This is a sign that is full of affection and can be quite lusty. They will want to impress their partner and be the best lover you've ever had, so they feel a need to show that to you. They are afraid of failing, and they don't want to be seen as such. They're not here to be losers, they are here to be successful.

Big Takeaways

  • Someone who is Capricorn who like you wants to have an excellent relationship, not just something that's fluffy and cute and momentary.
  • If they don't feel like their relationship is meeting what they want, they'll feel a sense of failure, and this can be a really horrible place for them.
  • It is good to build them up, give them reassurance, let them know how you really feel.

      I'm a capricorn and yes it's always hard for me to express myself to others. I'm always cautious in everything. I'm always observing people through their actions. Great article. Thanks for sharing.

      Ooh Lala I’m currently dating a a Capricorn man & he’s French. Thus far (3 months) he’s doing everything right. Kinda scares me but I like it @ same time. He laughs at my jokes, we discuss politics, sports so it’s not all about sex. Is a gentleman & always making plans that include me in the future? I keep waiting for his skeletons to pop out of the closet. Just so cute to me. Am thinking I will have to keep this 1.
