Making a Capricorn man feel guilty can be difficult if he genuinely doesn’t feel remorse for something he’s done to you.
If a Capricorn man cares about you and hurts you, he will feel guilty. It just might not always be obvious he does!
Usually, if a Capricorn man makes a mistake or does something to hurt a loved one, he’ll give them a quick apology. Don’t accept that apology immediately if you want him to feel guilty.
If your Capricorn man doesn’t think he’s done anything wrong, you might need to tell him he has. Rationally explain how he’s hurt you if you can.
If that doesn’t work, distance yourself. Be less affectionate, focus on others, and do things without him until he realizes how badly he messed up.

Explain to your Capricorn man what he did and why it was wrong. If you stick to just the facts, that will make him feel more guilty than if you let your emotions get in the way too much.

Tell Him He’s Hurt You
Will a Capricorn man apologize after upsetting you? He might, but he needs to know what he did to hurt you in the first place.
Sometimes, Capricorn men don’t feel guilty because they don’t know they’ve done anything wrong. If you tell your Capricorn man that he’s hurt you, he’ll feel bad about it.

Be Less Affectionate
Ignoring a Capricorn man isn’t always the best call if you want to make him feel guilty. However, being less affectionate in an obvious way might make him rethink his actions.
A Capricorn man might assume you’ve forgiven him if you act just as loving and affectionate as you usually do. He’ll have no reason to feel guilty because he may assume things are back to normal.
If you stop being affectionate, your Capricorn man will know something is wrong. He’ll feel guilty if he already knows you were upset about something he did. He’ll also miss the affection!
Again, be honest about why you don’t want to be affectionate. Tell your Capricorn man why you’re turning him away when he tries to hug or kiss you.
Focus On Others

Do Things Without Him
If a Capricorn man is ignoring you, don’t let it bother you. Do things without him instead. He might start to feel guilty for the way he’s treating you when he sees that you don’t want to do something with him.
You might not be able to go hang out with other people for one reason or another, so go hang out by yourself instead of with your Capricorn man. Show him that you’d rather be alone than with him.

This might seem drastic, but it will show your Capricorn man that he messed up. He’ll feel guilty that he’s the reason you want to take a break.
