If you are interested at all in learning about the different zodiac signs out there, then you probably already know that the Capricorn sign is the tenth astrological zodiac sign in the lineup of twelve. The Capricorn zodiac sign is most often known as the sign that has the most control with their inner-self. Thus, they have considerable potential to be a great helper for people.
A Capricorn is likely to aid people because they can feel a great deal of empathy within themselves. That fact also means that a Capricorn makes for a great friend as they will always seek to understand what their loved ones are going through. And, they’ll always be there for them.
Capricorns are also a very independent zodiac sign because they know their capabilities. Furthermore, they rarely trust other people to do work when they see what they can do. For example, once they start a task, they’ll do it on their own to guarantee that it gets done right.
Since a Capricorn zodiac sign is so independent and self-controlled, it is essential to know some things that you should never say or do around this zodiac sign to stay on their right side.
12 Things to Know Around Your Capricorn Friend
1.) Stay out of their way when they are in a bad mood
When a Capricorn is in a bad mood, it is best to get out of the way and leave them alone. When they are upset or angry, they will not care about what they say or do at the moment. In fact, they can very well end up hurting your feelings if you get in the way.
If you make Capricorns angry, be ready to hear them go off on you without much of a filter. Worse yet, they tend to cut you off and act like you do not exist without a second thought.
2.) Never lie to Capricorns
Capricorns are very intuitive people and can see people for who they are with tremendous ease. If you are not telling the truth to a Capricorn, they’ll know. They may not say anything to you about it or call you out on your lie, but their strong intuition alerts them that you are lying.
Capricorns do not do well when they are lied too and will not take a fib lightly. Therefore, it’s always best to be upfront and truthful with Capricorns. Telling the truth will help you to avoid the negative outcome that arises out of lying.
3.) Do not ask them to follow your rules
As stated above, Capricorns are very independent people. They are people who rely on themselves and typically only on themselves. It is true that they sympathize with people and want to help others as much as possible. However, this does not mean that they will bend easily to any rules made by someone else.
They want to help, but they will only do it their way. You will get ahead in a relationship with Capricorns if you request rather than rule. Or, set a general guideline to stay in and let them do the rest for themselves. Realize that they are self-made, and you will get a better outcome.
4.) Pushing Capricorns away is a hazardous game to play
Capricorns are very loyal people. Once you are friends with them or have any type of close bond, they will always have your back and be there for you. If you want a friend to support you and have your back, then this is the person that you want in your life. However, this is not a zodiac sign to take advantage of.
If you choose to tell a Capricorn that your relationship is over or push them away with your actions, do not expect them ever to come back or grovel to have you again. Though they are loyal to a fault, Capricorns are also not going to beg to remain in your life.
Once they are out of your life, they are not coming back. So take care to treat that relationship with respect.
5.) Do not expect them to give up on their career goals or ambitions
One of the worst things you can ask of this sign is for them to walk away from their beloved career. There’s an exception to this. That is unless you know that they feel stuck in a career-low, and you motivate them to push towards their next phase.
Capricorns live to crush goals and reach for the stars. Indeed, they work hard to get to their ambitions and do not stop working until they achieve what they are working towards. Then, they start all over again with a whole new set of goals.
Asking them to leave their careers can push them away from you or cause them to be resentful of you. If there is a significant life change coming up, it is best to figure out a way that allows them to keep their careers instead of asking them to give their careers up.
6.) Do not imply that they are boring
Capricorns pride themselves not only on being a person that can provide excellent entertainment and fun but also as a person that can give their friends stimulating intellectual conversation.
If you choose to cross a line and insinuate that your Capricorn is boring, then you should be prepared to lose a friend instantly. They will automatically pull away when you do that and find people find them interesting to hang out with.
7.) Capricorns do not have time for your boasting tendencies
It is not in your best interest to try to boast or show off your material things to this sign. In truth, they do not care about your material stuff. Nor do they care about how much you have or how shiny your stuff might be. In fact, Capricorns care about the hearts of the people they spend time with.
If you go boasting around Cappies, you can be sure that you will quickly lose a friend as they will soon cut you off without a second thought. Capricorns are in it for the heart of the person, not the things they have to offer.
Capricorns pride themselves on their intellect. They work hard to make sure that they are intelligent, well-read, and can have intellectual conversations with people of any circle. If you choose to say foolish things around Capricorns or act like a fool, be ready to be cut off from them. They do not have the time or the patience to sit around and listen to any foolish talk and will leave you in the dust without an ounce of guilty feelings about it.
9.) Call them slow and feel their anger towards you
Capricorns do not rush progress for the sake of progress. They choose to take their time on things to make sure the result is perfect, and just as they want it. To them, slow and steady wins the race. Calling them slow would be very unwise as they know that they are merely taking their time to make sure every detail is perfect down to the last detail.
10.) Do not ask Capricorns to rethink their thoughts or decisions
When you go to Capricorns and ask them to rethink something or reconsider some of their choices it can come across as very offensive to the Capricorns. This sign takes pride in thinking through every detail of their thoughts and considering the outcome of the decisions they make.
They take time to think through all of their thoughts before acting, so when someone asks them to reconsider their views it can seem very offensive and degrading, causing them to be taken aback and distance themselves from you.
Capricorns are very reserved and tend to keep their emotions and inner thoughts bottled up deep within. Asking them to open up and share what is close and personal to their hearts can cause them to clam up even more and feel less inclined to share anything personal with you in the future.
12.) Do not ask them to divulge secrets from other people
Along the same lines as above, Capricorns not only keep their matters close to the chest, but if their loved ones share something personal with them, it is not going anywhere. Asking them to divulge secrets fro other people will cause them to feel betrayed by you and will end up getting you cut off instead.
The Capricorns in your life are very loyal people and will be fierce friends to have in your corner. If you treat them with respect and honor, then they will be some of the most loyal people in your corner, and you will have won a fun, smart, loyal, exciting person in your corner for the rest of your life.
