You probably did not intend on hurting a Capricorn’s feelings but now it's too late.

You have to deal with the aftermath, and it won't be an easy fix.

Yes, they are probably giving you a cold shoulder by ignoring you, and in their mind, you're out their life for good.

It can't hurt to try and change their mind, since you most likely have no idea what you did wrong in the first place.

Chances are you don’t know how to fix the relationship, but showing respect is a good place to start.

Luckily, we know just what to do when a Capricorn ignores you by looking at astrology:

1. Reestablish their trust

Capricorns are very guarded, and it takes a lot for them to trust someone.


When feeling hurt by a friend or significant other they might feel as though that trust has been betrayed, even if you didn’t lie to them.

They look at this scenario as a betrayal because they trusted you with their heart and now it’s hurting.

To fix this, passionately tell them why they can trust you and back it up with proof of good behavior.

2. Send a heartfelt text

Capricorns like to test people to see how much you actually value them.

They could be ignoring you to see if you’ll even care.

Show them that you pass the test by sending a heartfelt text.

Explain to them that you would never intentionally hurt them and have their best interest at heart.


If you did intentionally hurt them, apologize.

Tell them why you are sorry and walk them through how you intend on fixing it.

3. Have a calming conversation

Once they return your heartfelt text, keep your cool.

They might fire back aggressively or accuse you of being spiteful, calmly rationalize your side of things.

Maintaining maturity will add to your credibility and make the Capricorn reconsider their anger.

Staying calm will also help you avoid saying something you can’t take back

4. Be firm

If you apologize too much or seem super guilty, a Capricorn will take advantage of it.

They will use this to make you feel even worse and sometimes even use it as leverage to get something they want.


Instead, apologize for hurting their feelings and firmly state your intentions for the future.

If they keep pressing you, continue to stand your ground.

You might sound like a broken record but at least your point will get across.

5. Set boundaries

They could be ignoring you because they feel smothered.

If this is the case discuss healthy boundaries with them to ensure everyone is comfortable.


Get to the root of why they feel that way and then work on resolving from there.

Be clear with your boundaries as well, tell them to come to you if there is a problem rather than ignoring you.

Whatever it is that is upsetting them can likely be resolved with a conversation, remind them of that.

6. Be patient

As mentioned earlier, Capricorns are typically guarded and mistrusting.

Because of this, it may take some time for things to go back to normal between the two of you.

This doesn’t mean that they are holding a grudge, they are simply forgiving but not forgetting.

Show them continuous behavior that backs up your intentions and your relationship will eventually be even better than before.
