David Bowie is a Capricorn and though I don't really believe in Astrology stuff, all the descriptions so far sound like a fit for his personality. Of course, I don't know him personally, I'm just a fan. But he's reportedly a tightwad/money obsessed, has been in a stable marriage for nearly 2 decades, dry sardonic sense of humor, and is definitely an old goat.
Elvis is another famous Capricorn and I don't think he exhibited any of those qualities at all.

I'm a Capricorn and wondering if any other Caps have a problem with holding grudges. I didn't talk to my father for years after I left home, because of his horrible parenting (if you've seen the movie "The Great Santini", imagine something like that with infidelity, a dash of domestic abuse and a lot of just being afraid of the next parental fight). In the last 5 years, our relationship has gotten a little better (I made the first move after my father had serious surgery).
Now I'm not speaking to my older sister because I hate the things she does. We had a disagreement and I've frozen her out since then. I don't understand how she can rationalize things she does are OK and I don't want to associate with people with that mindset. Some people are able to get past stuff like that, but I have a really hard time forgiving and forgetting.
Is that SOP for Capricorns?

R29 I used to be like that, but as I've gotten older, it's subsided. I'm sure it's part maturity and part trait.
In genearl, when a you brak a Capricorn's trust, they are done with you. End of story. They just leave. The don't want to know why, or how sorry you are, or whatever. They can also be as vindictive as they came. "Hell have no fury like a CAPRICORN scorned."
On the other hand, while it may take them a while to get over something, once they are... There is no reason to ever mention it again. It's like it never happened.

I can only speak to the female Caps, as I'm a woman, but I can confirm that the best lover I ever had was a Capricorn. I was surprised at first, because she seemed uptight when we first met, but as I got to know her, I found her to be intelligent, funny, and intense, yet really sweet and affectionate.
Once we took it to the bedroom, Holy God! That woman was insatiable and amazingly orally gifted.

Sex is still in our lives as well. He brings me down to earth and I get him to socialize and get out and party.

Here's another vote for the les Caps being crazy hot in bed. My Capricorn ex-gf was quiet and reserved to those who didn't know her well, but in bed was the most sensual woman I've ever met. I never thought of it as a birth sign trait until I compared notes with fellow lesbian friends and learned that the consensus was: "Capricorn Lesbians will put it on you like no other!"
Now if I could only find another one who strikes my fancy.

The most common pairings are of people who are one Sun-sign away from each other.
Generally it is the "incompatable" relationships that survive. You build a strong relationship by negotiating that incompatibility. The "compatable" relationships have less to work with and a lot less to build a long-term relationship on.
Most pop astrologers do not get this.

R54, no one runs absolutely true to a sun sign description. Some things will apply, some won't. There are planets, signs, houses, angles, aspects and other factors to consider in any chart.
Perhaps the easiest explanation for your brothers non-Cap behavior is that the law of duality applies in astrology just as it applies in everything else. Within every recognized Capricorn trait is its opposite and life can bring out one side or the other.

Question for all you Cappy lovers: How does one proceed in getting a Cap to open up?
I've been casually seeing this woman for a couple of months on a friendly basis, but would like to take things to another level. I think she's into me, but she has never made a move to make things physical. We talk daily, usually multiple times, and when we get together, she always seems pleased to see me and regularly compliments me.
Is this typical Cap behavior? I'm 99% sure she is not seeing anyone else.

Cappy here---Sag moon, Cancer rising.
Yes, we CAN be control freaks at times, but it's mostly about our money. I'm what my grandma would call "thrifty" or "frugal". I get kidded about my tightwad ways, but when friends / family need a loan, who do they turn to? I buy quality goods that last a long time. For example, I have a London Fog Trench coat I bought over twenty years ago and still wear. My vacuum cleaner is an old Rainbow--that I bought used at an estate sale-- that works better after 30+ years then most of the crappy ones made today.
Most Cappys--as well as Taurus and Virgo, the other earth signs--tend to have a very dry, sardonic sense of humor, often bordering on the morbid. Gallows humor is our forte.
We are extremely faithful and loyal. Cappys are your friends for life, unless you cross us. But, we WILL get revenge. It may take decades, but paybacks are a bitch.
If I love you, I will spoil you and you will be treated like a king. Yes, I work hard, but if you are my loved one, you will be reaping the benefits--nice vacations, fine food,etc. All I ask is that you be faithful to me and love me as I am.

R42, it's quite likely you and your partner have complementary personal planets. Mercury, Venus and Mars are all closer to the earth than say, Neptune so in the natal chart they are usually 1-2 signs removed from the sun sign. In other words, your partner may be a Cap but may have Mercury (communication) in Saggitarius or Venus (love, pleasure) in that too, or you may have some personal Capricorn planets.

Those planets sit in my eighth house and I feel exposed. I'm turned on but also self protective. I was aroused for three days straight after our first meeting.
I also avoid Scorpio and Pisces for similar reasons. My chart is mostly fire-air and anytime I get involved with heavy water types, things go haywire in my life. They make me too emotional. I share too much. I want to merge with them. It's hard to keep my cool.
I'm looking for a steady Taurus now because I've read they're supposed to be good for me. I'm in my 30s and have somehow managed to avoid ever dating one. I think I need a earthy-air type (responsible/intelligent). A guy with lots of Taurus/Libra/Aquarius sounds about right.
