Complete guide to love, sex and relationships

Capricorn woman personality traits and characteristics

Capricorn women want to succeed. Whether it's in a career or as a homemaker they typically don't do things by halves. Goals and a practical viewpoint often characterize this lady. Outwardly reserved the Capricorn woman is a complex bundle of practicality, endearing modesty and self discipline in selected areas, often reserving her fun and sexy wild side exclusively for those who are very close to her.

Down to earth, self motivated, patient and responsible. Capricorn women are generally among the harder signs to understand, with a number of personality traits which often confuse partners in the early stages of a relationship.

While the Capricorn woman is as romantic and emotional as anyone else, she can be somewhat inhibited in expressing her emotions, often preferring to perform practical tasks to help loved ones in preference to making purely romantic gestures. She is very cautious by nature, and not one to rush into anything, so don't be misled if her interest appears mainly platonic initially.

A Capricorns greatest strength is the ability to set long term goals and pursue them until attained. Nothing gets in the way of a Capricorns plans and ambitions, and they don't like taking shortcuts or cheating as either devalues their later satisfaction. They value steady progress over short bursts of activity, and are exceedingly patient. Bad news affects them less than other signs, and rarely holds them back for long.

They often feel the need to challenge themselves. Pessimistic by nature they sometimes have a slight inferiority complex or fear of failure which drives them so hard to succeed and to stand on their own two feet while doing so. Respect, recognition and praise are important to them, as is their public image.

Never underestimate the patience or willpower of a Capricorn who's on a mission! They can beat most other signs in a battle of attrition.

Prior planning and preparation prevent poor performance

Capricorns like to plan their every move, weighing all the pros and cons of any issue in advance, and often rehearsing exactly what they want to say before they say it. Due to this they often don't like arguing or confrontation unless it can be rehearsed beforehand.

They are dependable particularly in a crisis though they dislike chaos and unpredictability. When asked, they give sound and practical advice. As a rule they're not aggressive people and only express hostility as a defense.

Work is generally very important to Capricorns and they do not take it lightly, holding fast to duty and responsibility. This is partly because they want to look good in front of the world and partly for the security such behavior brings. Typically they prefer employment rather than the greater risk/reward of self employment.

They often place a very high value on material security, which can lead to efficiency, thrift or being somewhat of a pack-rat. (I say 'somewhat' to be polite. They're often fantastic pack-rats!)

On the negative side Capricorns can be pessimistic, suspicious, stubborn and sometimes intolerant. The combination of these makes them the hardest sign to get close to for many people.

Capricorn woman questions

Are Capricorn women afraid to express their feelings?

Afraid is the wrong word for it though this is a valid question, as they often come across this way. Capricorn women typically enjoy people though they are often thoughtful, self-contained and shy. Their quiet exterior can make them appear to be loners, often building a wall of reserve around themselves. They are very loyal to those they care for, but often cold to those outside of their circle of friends and family. They are often highly cautious and analytical when making new friends.

What are Capricorn women like in bed?

Your Capricorn woman is likely to be a very adventurous lover, which may come as a surprise when compared to her otherwise restrained and stand-offish exterior. Contrary to her cool demeanor she is remarkably playful in bed, and will prefer 'fun' sex to the heavy or serious.

She will also enjoy laughing in bed, and appreciate a sense of humor. Don't be surprised if she mentions making love at either your place of work or hers, it seems to be a common fantasy with Capricorns!

Are Capricorn women kinky?

This is always a hard question to answer, as one person's idea of kinky can be very different to someone else's. Individuals also vary a lot, so this is a bad area to generalize in. All things being equal though, Capricorn women are amongst the more kinky, yes.

What's it like dating a Capricorn woman?

For many people starting to date a Capricorn is the hardest part. Once you get them to open up, things are much easier. Capricorns are somewhat unique in being much more friendly with their loved ones than with strangers. Many partners find this 'self enforced' loyalty to be very endearing. The partner of a Capricorn woman usually feels secure in the relationship.

How loyal are Capricorn women?

Once committed to a partner or married the Capricorn woman is exceptionally loyal and will seldom divorce, because she feels that any situation can be worked out, and will certainly be willing to put in the effort to do so if her partner is.

How to know if a Capricorn woman loves you?

The Capricorn woman is as romantic and emotional as anyone else, but can be somewhat inhibited in expressing her emotions, often preferring to perform practical tasks to help loved ones in preference to making purely romantic gestures. If she seems more interested in being your personal assistant than getting you into bed, this is often just her way of showing she cares!

She will be exceptionally cautious of making a commitment until she knows that your traits and lifestyle are compatible with hers. She is very cautious by nature, and not one to rush into anything, so again don't be misled if her interest appears mainly platonic initially. It's quite normal with Capricorns for a partner to initially assume "she doesn't really like me".

How to keep a Capricorn woman?

Security is very important to this woman, and for this reason she may prefer an older and more established lover, or at least a mentally mature one. She admires those who are hard-working or have ambition, and has very little tolerance for lazy people, and overall enjoys the company of optimists over pessimists.

Being stable and consistent will go a long way towards winning her heart. Capricorns also typically respect the past and tradition. While not as sentimental as some other signs she will appreciate you taking an interest in her past. For example, if she had a favorite candy as a kid.. she probably still likes it.

Capricorn woman long distance and online relationships

Online relationships and long distance relationships have unique challenges. One of these is that you get to see one side of someone very clearly: their personality. You don't however get to see anything about other factors such as sexual attraction. My compatibility reports address this by scoring all factors alongside each other so you can see the whole picture, with any strong or weak areas highlighted. To explore this further please see my article on online relationships.

Do Capricorn women cheat?

Generally they don't. But, this is the type of generic question that often gets asked or answered whenever astrology is discussed. Individual experiences are then quoted back and forth as proof that Capricorn women do or don't. Individuals get offended by general statements that don't apply to them, and everything goes downhill fast. The diagram below shows the problem here:


Capricorn woman personality

Astrology can predict someone's personality very accurately when the placement of all their planets is calculated. In that situation we can also predict their most likely behavior.

From just someone's sun sign however we can only predict some aspects of their personality and it's too much of a leap to try and predict behavior from just those. Astrology has fairly precise limits. This is an example of an area where sun signs are just too broad and clumsy to give an answer. A real compatibility reading is required to answer the question.

How to make a Capricorn woman fall in love with you?

This is a question which is very hard to give a general answer on, as no two Capricorn women are totally identical. The key is understanding her and what she finds most attractive in a partner. Astrology can provide a wealth of information to enable this, however natal charts need to be prepared and studied to do so. Please see the article on seduction and astrology for more information on this.

No! This article is based only on sun signs. In order to provide a lot of people with information those are a convenient and fast way to generalize, but far from conclusive at this broad level. There are many other planet placements which all affect someone's personality.
