• Capricorns are known for being cautious and practical, which can make them hesitant to commit.
Capricorns are not the type of people who jump into anything headfirst without considering all possible outcomes. They like to take their time and weigh the pros and cons before making a decision. This is why they may seem commitment-phobic at first glance.
• This reluctance may stem from a fear of failure or disappointment in themselves or their partner.
Capricorns have high standards for themselves and others. They don’t want to disappoint anyone, especially someone they care about deeply. The thought of failing in a relationship can be daunting, so it’s easier for them to avoid committing altogether.
• Capricorns value stability and security, so they may take longer to fully trust someone before committing.
Trust is something that must be earned with Capricorns; it doesn’t come easily. Since they prioritize stability and security above all else, it takes time for them to build up enough trust in someone before taking the plunge into commitment.
• They also tend to prioritize their career goals over relationships, leading some to label them as workaholics rather than commitment-phobes.
It’s true that Capricorns place a lot of importance on their careers – after all, success is what drives us! But just because we’re focused on our professional lives doesn’t mean we’re afraid of commitment…we just need balance!
• However, once a Capricorn does commit, they are likely to be loyal and devoted partners.
When a Capricorn finally decides that someone is worth committing to (after much deliberation), you better believe that person has hit the jackpot! We take loyalty seriously – think Hufflepuff-levels here – and will do whatever it takes to keep our loved ones happy.
• Capricorns may struggle with expressing their emotions, which can make it difficult to fully connect with a partner.
Emotions can be hard, okay? We Capricorns tend to keep our feelings close to the vest, which can make it tough for us to open up and connect with others. But trust me – once we do let you in, you’re stuck with us forever!
• They may have high standards for themselves and others, leading them to be overly critical or perfectionistic in relationships.
We expect a lot from ourselves (and everyone else), so sometimes it’s easy for us to get caught up in nitpicking every little thing about our partners. It’s not that we don’t love you…we just want everything to be perfect! Can you blame us?
• Some astrologers believe that Capricorns’ ruling planet, Saturn, can contribute to their fear of commitment by emphasizing responsibility and duty over emotional connection.
In astrology-speak: Saturn is all about structure and discipline. While these are great qualities when it comes to getting stuff done at work or sticking to a workout routine…they can also lead us down the path of “duty first” instead of connecting emotionally.
• However, this does not mean that all Capricorns are commitment-phobic; each individual’s experiences and upbringing play a significant role in shaping their attitudes towards relationships.
Just like any other zodiac sign (or human being!), there is no one-size-fits-all approach when it comes to how Capricorns view commitment. Our past experiences shape who we are today – but they don’t define who we’ll become tomorrow!
