You both know what's going on and you're both thrilled. But being a Capricorn means that you're bound to feel guilty. This could lead you to stop cold, to confess all to your boyfriend, or to tell this guy whose name you still don't know that you're already spoken for. Give yourself a break. Exchanging naughty glances and double-entendres never hurt anyone.
