Love and Romance

Aquarius is full of surprises and innovations, things that don't necessarily fit into a relationship with a Capricorn Woman neatly, but can help free you up for more intuitional and innovative ways of thinking you may have not explored. It's not as "far out" as you might think; the Aquarian Man's Saturn prompts him to focus on material projects and human needs.

There are likely to be a wide variety of them, and they may come from varied backgrounds, but there's a good chance that he will need their conversation and ideas.

The Keys to Success

Don't expect reliability out of the gate.

Aquarian Men have a reputation for being less than reliable. They also object to ideas like keeping up appearances in order to impress others. They can be somewhat unpredictable, and probably like it. Although he may be self-confident, he may need to make several changes in his attitude so that he can gain the respect of more "sensible" people. You'll have to do a lot of work to bring the forces into balance in this relationship.

Try to help ground his ideas in practicality.

You may have as many odd and unusual ideas as him, but the difference is plain. He will display them openly for the world to see, while you keep the majority of yours to yourself. Because of his gregarious nature and his lack of practicality, you may not trust him enough to tell even him about them. At the same time, because of your knowledge and determination, you may be the one responsible for grounding his ideas into a practical and useful form.

Don't expect commitment or promises quickly.

Aquarian Men have a problem with commitment and promises, because they are never sure whether or not they'll be able to keep them. They wonder how anyone can commit to some action when they don't know what sort of unavoidable issues may come up to prevent them from following through, or keep them from fulfilling the promises that are made. This does not usually apply once they are in a solid relationship. Nevertheless, it's important that you be aware of this problem that causes so much unnecessary confusion.
