6 Signs Your Capricorn Ex Does Not Want You Back

by Anna Kovach, relationship astrologer

It really doesn’t take too many signs from your Capricorn man for you to know that he doesn’t want you back. He’s pretty blunt and obvious with his actions when it comes to expressing how he feels.

This is especially true if you’ve been with him a while, and you know exactly how he acts and why. You’ve gotten an understanding, but perhaps there are some things you haven’t noticed. Keep reading to learn 6 obvious signs that your Capricorn ex does not want you back.

6 Signs Your Capricorn Ex Does Not Want You Back

1. He Doesn’t Talk to You

This one is the big one, and it’s most noticeable if he’s completely disappeared from the phone, text, social media, etc. If he isn’t talking to you it’s because he’s done with you and wants nothing more to do with you.

When you’re texting him or trying to call him and he doesn’t respond anymore, he’s finished. He’s not going to reach out to you ever anymore. When he’s totally done, he’s done. It’s final.

You can pretty much bet that if he’s not talking to you then he doesn’t want you back and probably won’t ever want you back. It’s time to let go and move forward.

I hate to be that blunt, but unfortunately this is often the case and no matter how much you try to reason with his actions, you can’t justify this one. Though, I have seen some women still not “get it.”

This is why I have to add to the pot and give you more signs to look out for. If you still don’t accept his disappearance as being “the end,” then you definitely want to keep reading.

2. He Blocks You

Capricorn Ex Blocks You

The Capricorn guy may try to block you in every way possible. This is especially true if he is absolutely done with you. This may be due to infidelity or if the relationship ended badly.

You better believe that he’s going to go above and beyond to make sure you don’t get through to him at all. He will block you in every which way he can and that includes all social media.

If you met on a dating website, he may block you on there even. He no longer wants you to know anything about his life or what is going on with him at any point in time.

Truly he’s adamant about making you a figment of his imagination. He doesn’t want to think of you or have you entering his life through any crack you might find. He will see you as an invader.

If you still manage to get through somehow, maybe with a fake profile or something sneaky like that, and he finds out; he will definitely blow up. So, I wouldn’t suggest catfishing him if I were you.

Besides, why would you want to keep trying to infiltrate his life when you know he doesn’t want to talk to you or see you? It’s probably time to work on releasing your feelings for this guy for your own sanity.

3. He Returns Your Things

You had better hope you didn’t anger your Capricorn ex too much, because he might throw your stuff out. Most Capricorn men are a bit too good for that though, and it’s more likely that he will box up your stuff and return it to you that way.

In some extreme circumstances he may mail it to you or have a friend take it to you so that he doesn’t have to have any contact with you in the process. In fact, that’s typically the way he would handle it.

If your breakup wasn’t too terrible, he may still talk to you enough for you to get you your stuff back. But, as I said, if he’s ignoring you and treating you like you’re the plague, then he’s not going to personally deliver your things.

It’s often best to get things that are important to you right away after the breakup because he’s not going to want to deal with your things at his place.

If you’ve got anything of his, he’ll probably just write it off, unless it’s something really meaningful to him. At that point he may stay “friendly” with you just so he can get his stuff back.

4. He Tells You About His New Woman

In the event that he has stayed in touch and is still talking to you, but he starts talking about his new girlfriend, he’s letting you know he’s over you. He is rubbing it in so that you know there’s no chance trying to get him back.

He wants you to know he’s moved on, he’s happy, and to back off. The thing is, he may act really nice toward you like there are no hard feelings. This can be confusing and may be seen a “mixed signal.”

If he has a woman, then you need to accept it and let go if you have some sort of hope that he may dump her and return to you. Accept that he’s moved on so you can finally do the same.

You may end up needing to cut him out of your life so that you can move on without him throwing or flaunting his new found happiness in front of you. There is nothing more painful than when he wants you to know he’s happy without you.

Know that you did your best and that if he found someone supposedly better, you can find someone better too. Stand strong and do what you know is right for you!

5. He Cuts You Out

Capricorn Ex Cuts You Out

So, you know that if he’s begun to shut you out, he’s done. What’s even worse than not talking to you at all, is when he does talk to you but leaves you out of things.

He makes posts on social media that have nothing to do with you so that you can see how great he’s doing and how he’s not sitting around in distress at all that you broke up.

He’s out with his buddies, he’s hanging with co-workers, he’s traveling, or he is doing things that he wouldn’t do with you. These are salt in the wound types of tactics.

Being excluded is painful and he’ll make sure that you know he’s having fun without you. It’s a dirty trick and it’s mean but he stoop to this sort of thing, so don’t try to hit him up to patch it back together.

Capricorn man isn’t the nicest guy when it comes to break ups and especially when they have no desire to get back together. They are hard core, ruthless, and someone not to be messed with.

6. He Rebounds

Just to wrap it up, you’ve got to realize that if the Capricorn man is making it impossible to contact him or talk to him then he’s moved on and he really isn’t interested in reuniting.

If he’s ignoring you, cutting you out, sharing his new lady and happiness with you, or making it hard for you to reach out then he’s done. Accept this and find yourself someone better.

I know it hurts and I know it’s hard to let go of a Capricorn man but he’s not giving you a choice in the matter. He’s showing you and telling you that being together again is not an option in his world.

When he’s done, he is absolutely done. It’s kind of a rare thing to actually get back together with a Capricorn man. He’s a bit hard-assed about it. He doesn’t like going back to what has already failed.

He wants to try something new and fresh but he’s likely jaded, and so he’ll just go ahead to push to take things very slowly or he’ll rush in with attempting to date someone to get over you.

He would rather search for a rebound than to deal with the pain of trying to move forward from it. On many levels this doesn’t make sense for him but that’s the complicated Capricorn man for you.

Capricorn guys are very hard to forget because when they are in love, they are amazing partners with lots to offer. Once they end it though, they’re extremely hard to get past.

I completely understand and empathize with you. However, if he’s displaying any or all of these signs, it’s time to let go, as hard as it may be. And you can do it; you just have to work on yourself and focus on your own life again.

You’re going to need to take some time to grieve, and then you can start to rebuild your life and know that there is someone out there who will not let you down.

  1. That’s ridiculous it’s a kind of person totally without emotional inteligence, acting like was perfect or God. Nobody is perfect.
    Live is that, growing up, making mistakes, those are the things make people better and help evolute together by the time. Excepting betrayal, that I think is something Unforgiven, discarding someone is purely arrogance and insecurity. that’s why I don’t believe in Horoscopes/sig

    1. Hi Raquel!

      You’re right. No one is perfect. Even more ironic, Capricorn is actually in everyone’s birth chart somewhere. That means we all have a touch of Capricorn in us. This is why I say it’s important to learn everything you can about a person instead of just sign alone. Horoscopes are quite accurate if you are going directly through an astrologer who is looking at your actual birth chart, not looking at just the basics. There is more to each of us in our charts. I hope you give it another chance… let an astrologer read for you and give you a personalized scope based on your full birth information instead of just your sun.

  2. My ex did block me n ignore me even though I wasn’t reaching out to him didn’t talk to me for days on end over something as minor as me telling him he didn’t appreciate me at all he has done this countless times and the very last time I told him do not contact me if u do it again I’m done which I now am and he always comes back with a msg about something then he says sorry it was an accident I did catch him countless times on dating sites which he thought was fine for him not for me he could swear but I couldn’t he could call the shots but not me always wanted me changing something about myself he had ocd as well so If something happened to him it was my fault or I should have cleaned it better. He introduced me to his mum without asking me first randomly facetimes his family and tells them I’m his wife then while I’m on the phone he tells them how crazy and rude I was which was my que to leave. After asking him why he always looks to blame everything else but himself he got extremely rude n I got out of the car coz I didn’t want to hear how judgemental he was being about how bad I was n he just drove off like he had some sort of right to tell me what my past was like even though he knew nothing about it n never heard from him since but I’m not blocked and if he msgs again I’m going to give him a taste of his own medicine. As a Capricorn myself I’ve got a strong personality which they don’t like coz they don’t that control over me n I find the men in this sign extremely difficult to deal with and would never go for another one again. The ones I’ve met all have some emotional baggage or hate women n always want to put them down and never be there for them

    1. Hi Rori!

      It sounds like your Capricorn relationship is riddled with problems. I am sorry you’re having such a difficult time with him sweetheart. They can be rather difficult, that’s true. Not all Capricorn men are the same thank goodness. Even though you’ve met similar, there are going to be some differences. Even in a Capricorn/Capricorn relationship there are trials and tribulations because you’re both strong minded and can be stubborn. This sign is often best with a more softer sign that will help bring the tenderness. I would suggest to you to try a different sign sweetheart. Perhaps a water sign would be more easy to deal with or an air sign. I wish you all the best!

  3. Me and my Capricorn first had a fallout lastyear, he walked away ignored me for awhile but I was determined to get him back. I did but it took 4months. He did miss me too, then we had another fallout this year March, he disappeared ignored for awhile, but started to respond, I’ve seen him few times, he came to see me 4weeks ago to talk, was supposed to be seeing how it goes, but he’s different making No effort to communicate he’s changed, I Cut him off he hurt me alot, But they are hard to get back so stubborn, but it’s not impossible I got him back on 3times ? I’m a libra probably my charms and sexy ways.

    1. Hi Maria!

      Yes it does take time. I’m sorry to hear that you two had a fallout again though. That had to have been quite frustrating for you. Him making no effort isn’t nice either. You’re right it’s not impossible but it really has to do with how much he cared or not. You keep doing you and doing what is best in your life. Try putting your charms into someone worthwhile that will give you all you deserve. I wish you all the best!

  4. my Capricorn ex doesn’t contact me (he asked me to leave 5 days ago) but on his socials and to the outside world everyone thinks we are still together. he still has the same profile picture (picture of both of us) his relationship status is still in relationship with me, our google calendars are still linked with each other. he himself hasn’t told anyone that we’ve broken up yet. I know it’s best for him to contact first. but what if that doesn’t happen? I really want to restore our relationship. but don’t know where to start.

    1. Hi Tineke!

      He’s not over you otherwise he’d shut you out totally and definitely would not keep the photos of you two up. I think you need to somehow let him know you’d like another go at it if he’d be interested and then leave it at that. If he doesn’t come around then he’s no in the right headspace. You will then need to decide if you’re going to wait for him or if you will take care of yourself and move on. I wish you all the luck of the stars!

  5. Hi,
    After a complicated “relationship” with a Capricorn man (I am Pisces woman)….I decided to break up with him. I’ve sent him a message saying that it is better for him to pretend I am dead….and I blocked him. The next day I’ve sent him an email explaining the things I could not overcome and how much he hurted me. He was schocked and angry. Very angry that I deleted and blocked him and he told me that he doesn’t want to talk to me again since I have behaved this way. After 3 weeks I unblocked him because I thought since we were not anymore friends in social media there was no point of having him blocked…I unblocked him just to find out that he looked for me in the social media and he blocked me! We had a very passionate relationship…very special…But I suppose he doesn’t want to hear from me anymore!??‍♀️I miss him a lot…but I don’t dare to contact him…

    1. Hi Sophie!

      So instead of him looking at his own behavior, he’s looking at yours? That my dear, is a narcissitic response. Give it more time with no contact. He needs time to chill himself out though if he was treating you badly then he may not love you in the way you deserve either. Him pointing the finger at you is trying to make you feel bad instead of accepting what he did and apologizing for it. If he truly loved or cared for you, he would have tried to explain himself or at least say he’s sorry. Take care of yourself and do things you love to work o healing yourself. Not contacting him is definitely the right decision. I wish you all the best sweetheart!

  6. Hi,
    We were super happy couples never argued
    I had my 1st small argument with my ex then he didn’t reply to my messages and my calls. I went to his place he refuses to talk to me
    I kept trying to contact him he asked to have a break as he felt that he is depressed not only me but he had previous issues that were stressed by
    I gave him a month then I sent him a message saying that I really love him and asking him what he wants just to give an answer he said that I am a good person but we can’t work together
    It’s been 2 months I really miss him
    It is Christmas time and his birthday is coming soon
    I’m not able to move on I’m still in love with him
