Lonely? Too bad, because under the permafrost, Capricorn is just waiting to turn up the heat. The right deep and patient soul can warm them up and, once committed, Capricorns are said to make especially cherishing and considerate mates… Read more about Capricorn in our “East Meets West” book series.
