When A Capricorn Man Is Done With You (13 Important Signs)

by Sonya Schwartz

What can I say about a Capricorn man...

He’s dependable, loyal, responsible, and trustworthy. He also has a wicked sense of humor. In other words, this guy is a potential boyfriend/marriage material. But what happens when a Capricorn man is done with you? 

Let’s take a quick look at his star sign so that we can understand him a little better.

Capricorn

  • Earth sign
  • Ruling planet – Saturn
  • Symbol – Goat
  • Cardinal mode

Capricorns are said to be born old and grow younger with each passing year. These are hardworking ambitious types who understand that it takes time to reach their goals.

Earth sign

Of all the Zodiac signs this one is probably the most down-to-earth. Whether it is at work, with family, or relationships. Capricorn’s mantra is ‘I use’ and as such those born under this sign are pragmatic and practical. They will weigh up the pros and cons of a situation before making a decision.

Capricorn begins the winter solstice; a time of scarce resources, longer nights, and hibernation. Therefore, he has to be responsible and sensible to survive these harsh conditions.

Ruling planet – Saturn

Saturn is often depicted as the Father of all the Zodiac. Saturn is the planet of discipline, rules, maturity, and boundaries. It also governs a sense of duty and responsibility. Saturn is associated with status and power; of long-term goals and steady progress.

Saturn is traditional, wise, and abides by the rules. In fact, it probably made most of them. 

However, it is also linked to low mood and depression and a pessimistic outlook on life. Particularly when too much responsibility has been taken on.

Symbol – the Goat

You only have to picture the mountain goat, steadily climbing a rocky path to the highest peak to fully appreciate this sign. They know that they must make the effort in order to get where they want to be. And make no mistake, where they want to be is the best and at the top.

That doesn’t mean that this sign is boring and thinks only about ambitions and goals. Far from it. Again, look at the symbol – the sea-goat. Sea goats are mythological creatures that have the tail of a fish. So Capricorns are not quite what they may seem.

Cardinal mode

Cardinals begin each season of the Zodiac. They are Aries (spring), Cancer (summer), Libra (autumn), and finally Capricorn, which of course is winter. Coupled with earth, Cardinals are grounded, practical and they make natural leaders.

These are the authoritarians that speak from knowledge and experience. They are calm and solid and prefer to take the lead, rather than follow. Cardinals are proactive and use their initiative.

Now I want to look at the man Capricorn and how he behaves when he is done with you.

13 Signs A Capricorn Man Is Done With You

1. He goes cold

Capricorn guys are not all about hard work and duty. Capricorn man when in love is warm, responsive, and a loving partner. They don’t necessarily like PDAs or soppy sentimental outbursts, but they can be extremely tactile and affectionate. So it is a clear sign of trouble if your Capricorn man suddenly goes cold on you.

2. He is suddenly very busy

He is suddenly very busy

Of course, we already know that Capricorn males are ambitious and will do anything to reach their goals. But this doesn’t mean he has no time for his girlfriend.

Does he keep putting you off or staying late at work? It’s unlikely that he is cheating with someone, but perhaps he can’t face telling you that he is done with you.

3. He is critical of everything you do

No one is more critical than Capricorn, but when they love someone they tend to keep their opinions to themselves. Or, failing that, they will use logic and persuasion to address any issues with a partner.

However, when a Capricorn man is done with you he feels that he needn’t bother with the soft and warm approach. He will be blunt and brutally to the point.

4. He is unapproachable

Remember the times when you would sit down and chat about everything and anything with this person? Do you feel like there’s an invisible barrier between you now?

Capricorns may not be as sensitive as our Piscean friends but they know how to shut people out of their lives. If you feel as if you just can’t talk to your Capricorn man anymore then he might just be sending you a huge sign.

5. He starts putting you down

Capricorns have this innate feeling that they are ever so slightly better than everyone else. Of course, they would never admit this in public. But now things are going downhill he might start behaving as if you are not good enough for him.

Capricorns are haughty by nature and believe they are always in the right. As such, when a relationship is failing he may start acting superior towards you.

6. He has low mood swings

This sign is prone to low moods anyway thanks to Saturn. It’s hardly surprising that this winter sign struggles at times. He is born when the sun is low in the sky and the daylight and resources are restricted.

However, he will be able to keep his moods in check with a supportive partner. So if your Capricorn man is unhappy then perhaps he feels the relationship is over.

7. He is indifferent to what you do

Capricorns are interested in all aspects of their loved ones’ lives. This is because they like to have a certain amount of control. Not that they are controlling, but more in a parental kind of way. It’s that responsible side of them again.

So if they are relinquishing that control and losing interest then this is one of those done with your signs.

8. He starts to financially separate from you

Of all the men Capricorn are pragmatic and practical. They will already be looking at the future and planning their finances without you. This might seem cold and heartless but this sign knows that you can’t heal from a broken heart without a roof over your head.

So when a Capricorn man is done with you they might suggest things like separate accounts or closing a joint savings account.

9. He goes quiet

He goes quiet

Earth signs are grounded and sensible. They don’t do dramatic scenes or hysterical tantrums. This is no fiery Aries or vengeful Scorpio here. Capricorn man will have made a decision of whether to end the relationship or not.

He will have stopped arguing or trying to fix whatever is wrong. Now he is examining the relationship in a business-like fashion. 

10. He is telling his friends that it is over

Capricorns will stay in a relationship until the very bitter end. They will do anything and everything it takes to save it. However, once they have made a decision that it is over that decision is final.

But before they make a decision they will want to seek advice from as many people as possible, because they know they won’t go back on their decision. 

11. He gives you a list of grievances

To this sign, relationships are business deals. You are entering a contract with them, complete with a list of requirements. At the top of the list is an agreement to love one another. 

He may feel like you are not living up to your side of the contract so he will feel justified in ending it. 

12. You are not his top priority anymore

You may have formed an impression that Capricorns are these hard, analytical types that have checklists of dos and don’ts when it comes to the people they love. But the truth is they are intensely loyal, completely trustworthy, and love with a heartfelt passion.

Capricorns want to be in a relationship. They are in it for the long haul and you are their top priority. If you suddenly realize that you are not any more then it is a sign your Capricorn man is done.

13. He tells you

This is a sign that appreciates honesty and the truth. So if his feelings have changed he will tell you. The only reason he might not want to is if he thinks that person will have an extreme emotional reaction to the news.

Capricorn men don’t handle outbursts very well. But, if he thinks you are someone that can handle it then he will be brutally honest.

FAQs
