How Capricorn Women May Appear to the Outside World
When a man asks me my sign and I tell him that I'm a Capricorn, I receive different reactions. Some say, "Oh, Capricorns are cool." Others will frown and start listing all the negative traits they believe are inherently Capricorn. Some have even confessed that they feel Capricorn women are difficult to get along with.
So, how can you love this complicated and complex woman? As a Capricorn woman myself, my advice is to be true, be loyal, and be yourself. A Capricorn woman will endure to the end if she feels what she has is worth keeping. Since I am a Capricorn woman who understands that some people struggle to understand this astrological sign, I decided it could be helpful to give some advice on how to love and understand the Capricorn woman.
Note of Caution
Although I am a Capricorn woman, I cannot speak for all women born under this sign. Every individual is unique, and therefore these recommendations may not always apply.
Traits of a Capricorn Woman
|Positive Characteristics||Negative Characteristics|
The Capricorn Personality
Capricorn women have been called one of the most difficult signs under the zodiac. Their reserved personality and serious demeanor can make them appear aloof, standoffish, and rigid to the point of not being fun.
Although Capricorns can be sharp with their tongues, they are extremely loyal to those they care about and enjoy having a good time. In fact, most Capricorns are very witty and have a good sense of humor.
What to Expect From a Capricorn Woman
What can you really expect from a Capricorn woman?
In Romantic Relationships
Capricorn women are reserved and suspicious, and one who has been burned by love will have deep trust issues. If you can gain her trust, then the "Ice Queen" will melt like snow on a hot summer day, for underneath her icy exterior, is a hot, passionate woman with a strong sex drive. Now, I must add that this is not true for all Capricorn women. For example, if I don't truly trust who I'm with, then I proceed with caution as far as issues with fidelity. So, if your Capricorn is a little too reserved in the bedroom for you, there may be issues with trust. If that's the case, you may have to wait for the lady of caution; if you choose to wait, however, she will be worth it.
Capricorns have many associates, but few friends, because they are so serious and analytical. Most would rather keep their circle small, their no-nonsense personality making it difficult for them to tolerate things they deem silly. This is especially true in many young Capricorn women. As her finances become in order, a Capricorn evolves and becomes more humorous and less skeptical. With age, Capricorn women usually lighten up.
As someone who only keeps a small group of close friends, a Capricorn woman will have your back through thick and thin, but will also cut you loose without a thought if you cross her. These women are easy to offend, known for holding grudges, and do not forgive easily. A Capricorn holds herself to high standards, and she expects loyalty from her inner circle of friends.
Capricorn women are more likely to be respected than liked. It's not that people don't like Capricorns, it's just that their tell-it-like-it-is personalities can sometimes come off as hurtful and arrogant. That said, the Capricorn's bark is bigger than her bite, and she usually means no harm.
Truthfulness is a strong trait in a Capricorn, and her advice can sometimes come across to her friends as cold and inconsiderate, but she's really just being true to her character. A wise Capricorn will understand that it's not the message, but the delivery of the message, that counts. When you understand the direct nature of the Capricorn personality, a Capricorn woman can be an excellent confidante—she will give you shrewd, honest advice, and she can be trusted with your secrets.
In Business and Financial Matters
Horoscopes can be helpful when dealing with people in business as well as in personal relationships. For example, most Capricorns are shrewd when it comes to business. They love the almighty dollar—maybe a little too much.
Capricorns are hardworking, determined, and ambitious. They are often considered overly ambitious because most Capricorns judge themselves based on how successful they are. A Capricorn whose finances are not in order is an insecure Capricorn. In fact, Capricorns are so career-minded that relationships can become secondary in their pursuit for stability.
Anyone dating a financially unstable Capricorn may feel neglected while the Capricorn chases their dreams. If you are patient, however, when things get in order, you will have yourself a strong and solid mate.
While women born under this sign are fiscally responsible, they still love the finer things in life. But because they are practical, they will more likely look for expensive things at bargain prices. A Capricorn woman is not above thumbing her nose at stores who sell inferior products, but will happily shop at garage sales and thrift stores for name-brand products and things of high quality.
Why Is It Hard for Capricorn Women to Find Love?
With all her attributes, the lady Capricorn can have a hard time maintaining love—her temper and sharp words can be difficult to deal with at times. Submissiveness is not a strong trait in a Capricorn woman. However, if she has a mate who is a solid provider with a strong personality, she is more likely to be passive in her demeanor within the relationship.

Capricorns do not like to play games. They hate mind games and avoid people who use such strategies to manipulate and control others. Capricorns also lose interest fast and won't waste time chasing someone who is always running. Capricorns like people who are confident in their own skin and have their own passions, dreams, and goals.
What Kind of Men Are Capricorn Women Attracted To?
Capricorn women crave security, and they tend to be drawn to men who are intellectual. This can sometimes be a pitfall for the lady who is known for being one of the most cautious and suspicious women of the zodiac. Under her, seemingly steely heart flows a well-spring of passion, and she can be fooled by sweet words and blinded by outer appearances.
Once the glow of love wears off, however, this shrewd woman looks to see if words align with action. If not, her beloved may find himself dealing with a mean spirit. A Capricorn woman needs to feel secure, and she is unable to have peace if her finances are not in order. And if she has no peace, neither will her partner. When it comes to love, some lady Capricorns do not set as high a standard for their partners as they do for themselves. In this case, love usually backfires for the person a Capricorn foolishly chose with her heart—she will inevitably discover how much they are lacking.
Does a Capricorn Woman Make a Good Wife or Mother?
Most Capricorn women make good wives and even better mothers. They are nurturers and love a beautiful home. Although most Capricorn women are very ambitious, they can apply that ambition to be the go-getter in the family, or they will be stellar teammates who support their partner from behind the scenes.
For the lady Capricorn, it doesn't matter who is driving, as long as the overall goal is accomplished. One of the positive traits of a Capricorn woman is that she is a team player. As long as she is part of the winning team, she is happy.

Questions & Answers
Question: I am a Capricorn. I show love to my boyfriend and he cheats. Anytime I try to leave or forget him, the love grows more and I keep enduring. Why am I like that?
Answer: Many people point out the negative traits of Capricorn women; hardly anyone acknowledges their devotion and, ability to love hard. When a Cap, falls in love its deep. It's hard for a Capricorn woman to pull herself away from a man she has given her heart to, even if he's not good for her. Capricorns like to win. A lot of her enduring in bad relationships stems from her wanting to win eventually. Here's the problem with that, while you are giving your all, he's not. He has your whole heart while making sure you don't have his. This could be a survivor tactic by him to guard his heart. He's taking advantage of your love so test his love for you by leaving. If he cares and pursues you, make him work on gaining your trust and don't just take him back every time he says he's sorry. Most men aren't sorry, and this is why it's repeated over and over because he's only sorry you found out. Capricorn women are good, faithful women whatever you decide to do, just know you deserve so much better.
Question: Which sign is the most compatible for a Capricorn woman?
Answer: In my opinion there were four that I found were a good match for me as a Capricorn woman. Virgo, Scorpio and another Capricorn. However, my best match was a Taurus. A Taurus loves nice things but most are careful with money. They are hardworking, and loyal but where a Capricorn can be too serious and in some peoples opinion a bit on the boring side. Taurus's are outgoing and like to have fun. This is good for the Cap, who usually needs other people to help them lighten up.
Question: Will a Capricorn woman ever forgive me if I broke her heart?
Answer: Here's the funny truth about Capricorn women: They will forgive people they love even though they hold grudges. I will advise you not to play with the heart of a Capricorn woman or take her love for granted. She loves very hard, however, there is a thin line between love and hate.
Question: Are Capricorn women manipulative?
Answer: In all honesty yes. A Capricorn's usual way of getting the upper hand is to become angry every time things do not go their way. Anger, unless it is justifiable anger, is a tool used to manipulate people. This is a character trait used by lots of people not just Cap's. It is a learned behavior, usually learned in childhood where a person has become used to everyone catering to them every time they become mad. The best way to handle this is to not cater to it. If a mature adult doesn't have the maturity to calmly express what is bothering them let them stay angry.
Question: I'm 59, and for three months I have been having good conversations with a 66-year-old woman. When I told her I was going to Puerto Rico for two weeks, to see my grandkids and sons, all of sudden she tells me over the phone that I should find a younger woman when I get there, that she'll find someone else. I was surprised. I texted her asking where did that come from? I overreacted and was hurt, and I said "F--- you," then she blocked me. I understand why she blocked me, but why did she start buggin' in the first place?
Answer: Your friend may be feeling insecure and feels that you are not telling her the truth about going to see your family. Therefore, she's putting herself in a position to call it off before you do. Remember in my article where I said: "A Cap, who has been burned will have trust issues"? Well, obviously you have that type of Cap. Telling her "F--- you" was not very nice of you and, may have done more damage, but I understand you were hurt.
Caps sometimes need to cool off. Once you return, try calling her again and see if she's open to having a discussion with you about the issues you guys are having. If you left for Puerto Rico, and did not tell her you were going, she may have felt like you aren't serious and decided to move on.
Question: Do Capricorn women have the tendency to manipulate men as is the trend today among many women?
Answer: Manipulating people is a way of gaining control. It's a human character flaw used by anyone who has had this behavior work to their advantage.
Question: I love someone at my school that's in my science class. She is a Capricorn girl born on January 4th. I don't know anything about her, but I often see her during school hours. She also keeps staring at me but, I don't want to date anyone before I know their story. Is she a good romantic match?
Answer: As a Capricorn woman, I can almost assure you she is very romantic. Capricorn's as young women love the "white and shining armor" type of men. They fantasize about meeting their prince, who will come and sweep them off their feet. She is staring at you because she likes you and is giving you an invitation to approach her. If you are interested to approach her and talk to her. I understand you want to take it slow and get to know her to make sure she is what she seems. My advice is to approach her in friendship first. Then, if you two have chemistry, it will evolve from there.
Question: How compatible would a Capricorn woman and a Pisces man be in a longterm relationship?
Answer: Capricorn's and Pisces are both ambitious, hard working and love nice things. Pisces are artistic and a bit of a dreamer, whereas Capricorn's are more practical and more of a doer. They can balance each other out nicely if they don't allow their ambitious nature to make them competitors against each other but unite them in away where they understand it is them against the world, together.
Question: Why do Capricorns get their feelings hurt easily and, why is it hard for them to forget once they've been hurt?
Answer: Capricorn's are very sensitive and their feelings get hurt easily. It's hard for them to take criticism even if it's constructive. They see it as an attack. They love hard and expect loyalty because they're loyal, and any sign that you are not loyal is seen as disrespect and they are ready to dismiss you. Because they never forget its hard to forgive.
Question: I am an Aries man married to a Capricorn. I love her but she seems to reject me and does not value my effort. Will she ever change?
Answer: I don't know if your wife will ever change. I believe that her problems are not about you but her. She may be so engrossed in her pain she may not recognize your efforts. I can only give you my experience and hope this helps you in some way. When I had guys who tried hard to please me I was so caught up in my low self-esteem I didn't see it. I'm sure I appeared ungrateful. As I got older, I was able to explain myself. Capricorn women love nice things and appreciate men who provide them. However, their true self-worth comes from self-achievement. A Capricorn comes into the world feeling as if they are destined to achieve greatness, and if they fall short, they can fall into a depression. My advice is to see if there is anything she is interested in trying to do and encourage her, support her, build her up with words and actions. I'm sure she loves you, and her problem is with herself and not you.
Question: Sometimes I feel being a Capricorn woman, I give more importance to my self-respect and somewhere become deprived of the relations. I never received the warmth of any relation and now tired of this lifelong companion called loneliness. Is this a fact with most of the Capricorns?
Answer: This is a common trait in a Capricorn woman and one of the reasons why it can be hard for her to maintain love. It appears that Capricorns more than any other sign want to be self-made. Most do not look for handouts or the easy road but value hard work and self-achievement. This instills a lot of pride in the Capricorn and, they enjoy being recognized for it. The Capricorn woman especially, can come off as cold and, a bit arrogant when in reality these are assets in the Cap that others perceive negatively. Am I suggesting you hide these traits? No. I am suggesting you look for men who value these traits and wants a team-player for his mate. Some Capricorn women settle when it comes to men because they do not look for men to validate them but are forever validating their self-worth and this can make them vulnerable and easy prey. You will find the right man at the right time. Just remember to be careful with the tongue and, be less opinionated. It's important to allow a man to feel like a man, even if you are more financially successful then him.
Question: I'm a Cancer who is in love with a young Capricorn woman. She says she's in love with me, but it seems like she is rather cool and distant. She doesn't see it or think she is. Is there any way to bring out my Capricorn's emotional side? Warmth and sentiment are some things I consider important. Are warmth and sentiment possible from a Capricorn? Is it possible for my Capricorn to connect on a deep emotional level? If so, how do you bring that out in her?
Answer: Capricorns hide their sensitivity behind a cool demeanor. Many people love to chase the Cap, because they appear unapproachable, however, once they get them they change. Caps are always afraid that once they let their guard down the person will change. My advice is to keep being kind and true, eventually, you will win her over. If you want to test her feelings try pulling back a little and see if that will get her attention. Sometimes a Cap can be too stubborn but we are not fools. If someone we care about stops showing love, we turn around real quick.
Question: I’m a Capricorn woman, but according to astrology, I’m also on the cusp of being Sagittarius. When it comes to love, I find men with water signs overly dramatic, men with fire signs too impulsive, and men with air signs bring players. When it comes to men with earth signs, there is never enough spark. I feel in love with a few air signs, but they have all broken my trust. Do you have any advice for improving a Capricorn's love life?
Answer: I find water signs such as pieces and cancer too emotional. I love the fact that's most are very artistic and go-getters but I find them to be a bit wishy-washy which will not sit well the Cap, who craves independence and needs people who are dependable. Fire signs such as Leo's, Aries and Sag's, are signs that I have a lot of respect for. I love their confidence and their style. Unfortunately, they can be attention seekers which will eventually wear on a Cap whose mind is more on making money than catering to people. Earth signs can be boring but they are the most stable in love and finance. My advice is to find a stable earth sign and create your own spark.
Question: Do most Capricorn women feel that they have to be in charge or the head even when it comes to relationships?
Answer: Capricorn women are dominant. I don't believe they feel they need to be in charge, it just comes naturally to them.
Question: What annoys a Capricorn woman?
Answer: Almost everything. If I have to narrow it down, I would say, indecisiveness. Capricorn's have low tolerance for people who are unreliable.
Question: I am a Cancer guy. I have a crush on a Capricorn girl and really wanna ask her out, but I don't know where I gotta take her for a date. I just wanna keep her happy and comfortable. We want to have a romantic time, so, what would be ideal?
Answer: Cap's are easy to please. Ask her what's her favorite restaurant and take her there. Then out to a movie of her choice. Keep it simple and keep it real. The main thing is you guys are together.
Question: I’m a cancer man in love with a Capricorn woman, she is almost identical to what you mentioned above but I find it hard to trust her due to the inconsistent behaviour. Any advice?
Answer: You can trust your Capricorn. The problem is Capricorn guard their heart closely. They are quick to run at any sign of trouble. Capricorn women are confident, but when it comes to love, they are insecure. Their trust issues are deep if they have been burned. Unfortunately, Capricorn women can be very hard but if you take your time and take it slow, start off as friends and let your relationship develop slowly. If you can get her to let down her guard, you will have a faithful and solid relationship. Capricorn women are faithful and enduring, but sometimes they can be hard to get.
Question: Will a Capricorn woman and an Aries man make a good match?
Answer: Aries and Capricorns are better off as friends. In my opinion both signs are too dominant to make a good match.
Question: My best friend is a Capricorn and I am a cancer. I know my friend cares for me dearly. Sometimes she will communicate a lot with calls and texts while other times ignoring me for days even after I've contacted her multiple times . We've known each other for 15 yrs, and sometimes I don't understand her. We've had our share of fights over this but, it's her way or no way and it's very hurtful. Are Capricorns stubborn like this by nature?
Answer: Capricorns can be moody and stubborn but they don't mean to be insensitive. Cappies have a hard time expressing to people that sometimes they don't want to be bothered, especially, if they're going through something. Also, most Capricorns tend to withdraw from situations the perceive as negative. Do you seek her advice often when it comes to your problems? Do you show interests in things she's passionate about? Capricorn's are used to everyone coming to them with their problems and, because of their reputation for being sharp with their words they'd rather just avoid you than tell you they don't want to be bothered.
Question: Who will be the best partner for a Capricorn woman?
Answer: That's a hard question to answer because both signs appeal to the complexity that is the Capricorn woman. For example The Capricorn man is like-minded with the Capricorn woman. They both are social climbers and have a desire to do well. They can provide each other with the comfort of understanding what it's like to possess these traits and achieve a lot together. A Scorpio however, brings out the Capricorn woman in a way a Capricorn can't. They have a strong sexual connection where a Capricorn woman will otherwise be reserved. Scorpio's also love to have fun which will lighten up the serious Cap, that can be all work and very little play. Now the negative to the two is, a Scorpio can be possessive and unforgiving. They also play mind games which can eventually wear on the no-nonsense Capricorn. Likewise, The Capricorn tongue, which two Cap's have in common can be dangerous as they can and will use it to tear each other down. Maturity plays a big role in the attitudes of these two signs. However, you usually make a pick between stability with a cap, or, sexual chemistry with a Scorpio. It's all in what you want.
Question: If I am awkward, shy, adventurous and weird, am I really an introvert?
Answer: Most introverts are shy, but that doesn't make you weird. Just remember peoples opinion of you, are just that, their opinion. Be true to who you are and be yourself. There is someone who will love you just the way you are.
Question: Will a Capricorn woman be a good partner for a Libra man?
Answer: A Libra and Capricorn can be a good match. Not perfect but good if the two are committed to making it work. There are a lot of positive traits in a Libra that will soften the cold Capricorn. Libras are easy to get along with and good with people. Capricorns are more aloof and loners. They both love nice things and the finer things in life, however, a Capricorn is more practical when it comes to money and though they want nice things, do not want to pay a lot for them. Libras live for the moment understanding that tomorrow is not promised to you but a Cap is always thinking ahead and planning for the future. Can these two make it? I think so, especially if they are older when a Capricorn becomes more stable and lightens up with maturity.
Question: What is the personality of the male Leo?
Answer: Well, first let me remind you I am not a Leo. With that being said I have many Leo friends and, have dated Leos so, I will do my best to give you my opinion on their characteristics.
Leo men can be very dominant. They feel they are the boss and rule. There can be a feeling of self- entitlement there; remember the symbol of the Leo is a lion and lions are the kings of the jungle. Leos believe they are always right and if proven wrong will never apologize. Their opinion of themselves are very high, and they feel that others should regard them the same way.
Leos are very creative and love lots of vibrant colors. They have an outgoing personality and love to be the life of the party. Leos are fun to be with. They love nice things and the finer things in life, but most are similar to Capricorns, meaning, they don't like to spend a lot of money.
Personally I couldn't connect with a Leo on a longterm basis because of certain personality traits of ours that clashed. For example:
Stubbornness, also present in a Capricorn. A Leo man will never put anyone on a pedestal higher than themselves. To sum it up Leos and Caps will have a lot of fun together, but the similar traits that drew them together can eventually drive them apart.
Question: I am a Leo. I met a Capricorn woman that I'm attracted to. We talk and joke together, and I was sure she felt the same as I do. Now, she runs hot or cold with me. I asked her to dinner and she said, "we will talk." I gave her my number and asked her to call when she has time. Now, she is cold again and avoids me. Should I wait for her, or take it as a no and move on?
Answer: Move on. Capricorn women will run hot and cold. It doesn't mean she doesn't like you, she could be playing games. Tricks are for kids, and if she can't make up her mind, make up yours and find someone else.
Question: Can a Capricorn date Scorpio?
Answer: Absolutely! Capricorns and Scorpios are very compatible.
Question: Can a Capricorn woman and Sagittarius man get along in terms of love?
Answer: In my experience of dating a Sagittarius, we got along better as friends. Sagittarius's are smart and out going whereas most Capricorns are more serious and loners. What I noticed in myself as a Capricorn woman is when I date my complete opposite its exciting for awhile because a Capricorn needs to lighten up and are attracted to people who enjoy life and are not that serious- mostly because they wish they could be that way. However, the no-nonsense personality in a Cap eventually clashes with a Sagittarius and the things that were so endearing in the beginning starts to irritate them.
Now, this is just my opinion, but a Capricorn man and Sagittarius woman may have a better chance considering that Sagittarius women are nurturing, loves a beautiful home and a bit more submissive than Capricorn women.
Question: I am a painfully shy Taurus and I've had a crush on a Capricorn woman since school. Now I am fifty-six, and can't stop thinking of her but don't want to interfere with her life if she is happy alone. Also, having beginnings of ED trouble and read Capricorn woman have strong Libido. I don't want to be a disappointment. Should I tell her I have had a crush or just let her have maybe a better man?
Answer: Cappies do have a strong sex drive, however, there are other ways to be intimate without sex. If she's mature she will take a whole lot more into consideration than sex in her decision to date you. Such as if you are a decent guy that will treat her right. There is no such thing as "a better man" only the right man for her. So, give it a shot, tell her. What do you have to lose?
Question: How compatible is a Capricorn woman and a Virgo man?
Answer: Capricorns and Virgos can be compatible. Virgo's can be a bit controlling and this can sometimes clash with the personality of the independent Cap. The good part is a well established Virgo can be a good provider and this appeals to the Cap, who craves security.
Question: I am a Capricorn woman attracted to a Cancer man. Is it going to work?
Answer: It can work. However, as a Capricorn remember Cancer's tend to be emotional and moody these character traits can clash with the Cap. You both are family orientated, nurturing and care deeply for others. You can have a beautiful home and life together if you both care enough to make it work.
Question: Are Aquarius males compatible with a Capricorn females and vice versa?
Answer: As a Capricorn woman I wasn't compatible with Aquarius men. But if you are interested in a Cap, give it a try it might work for you.
Question: I am a Capricorn woman dating a Leo man. We're both in love but our signs are barely compatible, do you think that we will last?
Answer: Not unless you're willing to be pulled into a debate over every little thing and be willing to apologize after every argument whether you're right or wrong. Both the lion and the goat are too stubborn and prideful to make a good team they seem to work against each other and not together more concerned about their own selfish agendas. In the beginning, its hot and fiery but the hot temperament of both these signs could be their downfalls.
Question: Are Capricorn women a good match for Capricorn men?
Answer: Capricorns are predictable and serious and are usually attracted to people who are carefree and spontaneous, for this is a quality they usually lack. Also, the razor sharp tongue that Capricorns are famous for and add to the fact that they can be grudge holders can eventually turn that passionate love into hate. The positive thing about two Capricorns being together is, they can achieve a lot financially. More than likely the two share the same goals and desire to be successful and what they may lack in spontaneity they make up for in stability. Are two Capricorns a good match for each other? Yes. Are they the perfect match for each other? My opinion is no.
Question: I’ve been talking to a Capricorn and I really like her but I don't know if she likes me. We've been talking a lot and she replies back quickly. She 's also here for me when I need her. We talk almost every day and I was wondering why she hasn’t been trying to flirt or show that she likes me. She says she’s been hurt from her last relationships by getting attached too fast. What should I do?
Answer: Be patient. She was honest about becoming involved too fast in her previous relationships and was hurt as a result. I believe she likes you and doesn't want to mess things up by rushing. This is a very good sign, if she wasn't interested, she wouldn't waste her time. My advice is to let her know you like her and, respect her enough to give her the time she needs to feel comfortable at the prospect of dating you. Trust me this will work in your favor. She needs reassurance that you are different from the rest.
Question: I am a Pisces Man and recently my Capricorn Woman broke up with me. There was no dishonesty or cheating in the relationship. She did mention that I was unreliable and have issues with stability. How can I get back with my Capricorn Woman?
Answer: Be more reliable and become more stable. If you read my article I made it very clear that a Cappie woman needs to feel secure in the relationship and finances are a big part of that. If you really want her back, make an effort to get your life in order.
Question: What is the best match for Capricorn women?
Answer: Follow your heart. If Cancer is what your attracted to then go for it. Capricorns change with age and growth. When I was young I enjoyed having a good time. So I was attracted to Scorpios, Virgos and Gemini's. As I became older I looked for men who were more stable and serious; and for me that was a Taurus, Capricorn, Scorpio.
Question: What kind of women are Capricorn women attracted to?
Answer: Capricorn women are attracted to women who are: attractive, confident and comfortable in their own skin. If she is considered more of the dominant in the relationship, she is attracted to women who are nurturing and organized. The important thing to remember is that a Capricorn needs peace and it doesn't matter what role she plays as long as you both have common goals.
Question: I am in love with a Capricon woman. I have given her all my support, treat her how she wants to be treated but she doen't show any interest in being in love with me or, even giving me any hope at all. She's asking me to give her more time and its been almost a year since I have known her. I'm wondering whether to hold on to her or to give up on her?
Answer: Dear reader:
I would give her the space she's asking for and move on this doesn't mean you should give up, just explore more options. It's possible she's having trust issues over a past relationship and decided to be cautious before taking a chance.
Capricorn women enjoy being pursued, understanding that some men enjoy the excitement of the chase but will change once she is caught. My advice is to explore other possibilities while keeping the door open if she decides she's ready. A year is a good amount of time for her to have studied you but if she still can't make a decision you may need to let her know her time is up.
Question: Is it easy to change a Capricorn woman's mind ?
Answer: Capricorn women are reasonable so it pretty much depends on the circumstances.
Question: I am a Capricorn, I fear abandonment but I always end up pushing people away. Why am I like this?
Answer: In my case I always felt the relationship wouldn't last anyway. So, at the first sign of trouble my instinct was to push them away before they left. This way I could fool myself into feeling like they didn't leave me I left them. The problem with that was I would be hurting and checking my phone every twenty minutes to see if they called. The fear from abandonment stems from someone who you loved and trusted and left. You have to heal that pain in order to learn to trust again, otherwise you will always push people away. My advice is to take your time with people who you let into your life. Always remember that words can be deceiving and a person actions speak louder than their words. If you see a character trait that is a deal breaker for you, don't make excuses for it and don't ever fool yourself into thinking you can change anyone, believe what you see. Once you see a pattern of good traits in a person, you will know they're authentic and you will slowly learn to trust them.
Question: I'm a Pisces, and I have a crush on a Capricorn. What should I do to attract her?
Answer: A Capricorn woman loves a man who can make her laugh. They are also drawn to guys who are intellectual. My advice would be to find out what her interests are, and strike up a conversation about it. Remember Capricorn women are intelligent and deep if you can hold her interest in a conversation then casually invite her to lunch or a movie. Capricorn women don't like men who are too pushy so be sincere when you approach her.
Question: Are Pisces compatible with Capricorn women?
Answer: Capricorns are earth signs and Pisces are water signs, getting these two signs to work will take work. The Cap, may find the Pisces too- wishy-washy while the Pisces may feel the Cap, is too uptight and boring. Both signs are ambitious and go-getters but their personalities are different. Pisces is more outgoing whereas a Cappies is subtle. They're better friends than lovers; however, if love is true and, each sign willing to appreciate and respect each other differences, it can work.
Question: I am in love with a Capricorn and I confessed my feelings to my Capricorn 3 times over the span of 1 year and 6 months. I love my Capricorn so much and I’ll never give up on her no matter what even though she won't tell me how she feels about me. We will talk to one another one day then the next she’ll be distant and ignore me. I won’t give up because I care. What should I do?
Answer: There's not much you can do other than what you've already done. You confessed your love so she's aware of how you feel. Capricorn women are cautious. Unfortunately, their cold exterior gives others the understanding that they're hard to get but that's not true she's guarding her heart. Capricorn women love hard and have been targets for men who love the chase but tire easily once they've caught you. For this reason, Capricorn's grow more cautious and more skeptical with each heartbreak. My advice is this: Your words won't hold as much weight as your actions. Spend your energy showing her you're the man for her and spend less time trying to convince her. When she becomes moody, give her space and remember to not take it personally it has nothing to do with you personally but her way of figuring things out. When she's ready to let you in she will.
Question: Do capricorn women like to keep many lovers at one time?
Answer: It depends on the person. Some Capricorn women do and some don't.
Question: I have been on four dates with a Capricorn woman, we have been intimate. It has been great so far but I want to talk to her about becoming my girlfriend. What is the best way to get that across to her without seeming to clingy. Or is it too soon to bring that topic up with her? I am a Libra by the way.
Answer: Since you guys have been on four dates and have been intimate I would say the time is right. I don't think she would have slept with you if she didn't have feelings, so go for it!
Question: I am a Capricorn woman. My boyfriend is expressive in feelings. However, I am not good at it. I am also not completely sure about my feelings for him. The relationship is recent, and I am also looking for a relationship that has a secure future. I am doubting whether my current relationship will work or not due to my family not being supportive in it. Should I continue?
Answer: I think you should continue. You will know when it is time to give up. Take into consideration of why your family is not supportive but do not let that sway your decision to follow your heart. You said you are not sure about your feelings? So I suggest you be honest and let him know you want to take things slow.
Question: As a Capricorn woman, I feel like my secrecy and emotional barrier requires too much efforts for anyone to try and go through them. My mother is the closest person to me, but even though I love her, I still feel like this feeling of loneliness in my mind is never going to go away, my question is: is it going to last forever?
Answer: That depends on you and if you are willing to allow people to cross that barrier. Its okay to trust people but you have to be cautious. Cap's have a problem of going in too deep or not deep enough and you need to find a middle ground you can be comfortable with. Your mother may be the closest person to you but she won't be here forever and you need a fulfilling life that's shared with someone you can be happy with. Just a note of caution. When you start to date look past a person's words and judge more by their actions. Cap's can be fooled by sweet words and by the time we find out they're not as reliable as they appeared, we're usually in too deep.
Question: She is out of town, but even when she’s home, if I’m too tired to drive she lets me sleep in her bed and she sleeps in the other bed no matter how I refuse, then she pulls backs and says it's too much interaction. What is this? We both have shared our most intimate secrets, and we have complete trust. She says I’m an amazing man. I’m recently divorced, so I'm taking my time, but she's always been the woman I envisioned waking up to, but I don’t know what to do?
Answer: Maybe she has been burned a few times. Capricorn women are skeptical; it takes time for them to let their guard down, unless their feelings are strong. She seems to value your friendship. Keep taking things slow, don't rush her or come on too strong, that will turn her off. Keep beings friends and let everything play out.
Question: Are Cancers and Capricorns compatible?
Answer: Cancers are loving and the women are more of a homemaker and nurturing which will make her great for the Capricorn man. Capricorn men are breadwinners and enjoy coming home to order which is where a Cancer woman excels. They can both be moody and unpredictable which is something that can break them if they are not careful.
Question: Are a Capricorn woman and a Gemini man a good love match?
Answer: I personally have not found myself compatible, as far as a long-term relationship. Although, I have had really good, short-term relationships. Keep in mind that someone's sign can give you insight into their character but never use horoscopes as your ultimate source. Get to know the person and take things slow.
Question: I'm a Gemini woman dating a Scorpio man for 4.5 years who I just discovered had been lying to and using a Capricorn woman for 2 of those years. She also found out he had been unfaithful to me after I confronted her. Oblivious and pissed she ruined his dj career then a few weeks later she finds out she's pregnant by him. With us trying to fix our relationship even after being betrayed, used, and knocked up by my bf, how will she handle this situation with me still in the picture?
Answer: I don't think your boyfriend is being honest. Two years is a long time to "use" someone and personally, I think he's playing you both. Are you sure she's pregnant? If so the question you need to ask yourself is how are you going to deal with her because she will be a problem and unfortunately, if she is pregnant he has to deal with her for at least eighteen years. If I were in your shoes and found out my boyfriend had a side chick and she was pregnant, I would cut my losses and move on. You deserve better than to be with someone who will cheat on you and risk your relationship by not practicing safe sex. Let her have him.

My advice is to give her time. Capricorn women can be cold but she's probably hurt that you didn't trust her suggestions. She will forgive eventually.
Samson Kelly on September 17, 2020:
I'm a libra man deeply in love with an office colleague who's a Cap. Sometimes she gives in to my amorous/emotional moves but at other times laughs them off as if it were a joke. There has been a big office related problem and I didn't take her advice despite her insistence, we have differences of opinion which made her go cold & distant towards me. Now that I know she does have feelings for me but never expresses them, how do I make it upto her? I'm dying to bring her back to me bcz I can't live w/o her
Dana Tate (author) from LOS ANGELES on September 08, 2020:
It's in a Capricorn's nature to run hot and cold. It doesn't mean she doesn't like you but most, who have been burned, will have trust issues.
She could be testing you to see how long you will chase her or, maybe she does only want friendship with you. My advice is to be straight up with her and let her know how you feel.
Chris on September 02, 2020:
Also one more info is that we know each other for more than 2 years but have never been out together. i just happened to be in my homeland and brought her something as a gift she asked me to .before we go out we have been texting for about 6-8 months but nothing serious .
Chris on September 02, 2020:
Hello i am a Cancer man and i have been dating a capricorn woman . we have been out together 3 times already. first time was really fine i asked her with a sweet way at the end of the night if i could kiss her she rejected it but we then went out for 2nd time and it was also awesome.lots of laugh, some flirting was also on the way ,eyes locked up for more than 5 secs etc. By the time we went on first date she told a mutual friend of ours that she wanted just to keep things in a friendly manner .After we went on 2nd date she told the same friend that ok i am getting to know him right now thats why we went on 2nd date. The third and last one was a bit bad i got her a nice purple rose she liked it and i surprised her after her work since she started ghosting me a bit (there was also a time where i canceled our date and after that she started to pull away a bit...), i told her that i dont like it when people just dissappear and say that they will text but they wont and i find it incorrect .she got a bit mad but at the end of the night i apologised and said to her that i just wanted to let it out so u know what kind of person i am and she told me no worries i understand.she also told me i dont want to promise you when we gonna meet again then i told her i dont need you to promise me something you dont want or you cant do.She was for 2 secs silent and answered with ''its hasnt to do with if i want''.its been 6 days and i thought about giving her space and not texting her , if she never texts me again then i have an answer already i guess.Any advice would be helpful , i would love to hear your opinion and if she is interested or not.

Q on June 23, 2020:
anonymous on June 14, 2020:
I don't feel poor communication is the problem with your guy when it comes to helping you financially. You're either not asking for his help, assuming as a man he would do it naturally; Or, he just doesn't want to for his own personal reasons.
At this point you need to let him know you need financial help and if he isn't willing, providing he is able to help you, then you may have to make some tough choices regarding your relationship.
Remember if your partner is struggling and you are connected emotionally, no words need to be spoken. Taurus's can be stubborn but so can Cap's so let him know you want to work on better communication between the two of you but also keep in mind that with some people the problem is never them but always you.

Thank you for reading and commenting.

Great job! The description of Capricorn women is on point!!!!!! Men can't take our strong confident personality We been winners!!!!!
Dana Tate (author) from LOS ANGELES on April 19, 2020:
There could be a number of factors why she isn't answering your email. For one she may not be checking them therefore not realizing you're trying to contact her.
Maybe her computer isn't working; Capricorn's can be moody and she maybe going through something.
I would give her a little time I'm sure she will contact you eventually with a good explanation.
Joseph on April 14, 2020:
I am a Scorpio, my girlfriend is a Cap though, but we can't see each other because of the hole school thing, I'm just worried because she hasn't answered my emails for almost two weeks, what do you think is going on? Another thing, her parents don't approve of us being a couple. I just need to know.
Dana Tate (author) from LOS ANGELES on February 22, 2020:
Capricorn's who have been burned in a relationship will have trust issues. You said she reaches for your hand, respond quickly when you text, and ask you about your day,this is a good sign she obviously cares about you.
Appearing cold and unbothered are all traits of the Cap who can be very vulnerable and guarded with their heart. She will come around after she can be sure she can trust you with her heart.
Alex on February 22, 2020:
I'm an Aries dating a Capricorn woman.
We have a good relationship but we have some arguments about something i find it very difficult to handle.
She seems very cold to me.
She sometimes takes my hand but she never came to take me in her arms, or rarely she is comming to kiss me.
She is telling me that she loves me and during our relantionship she shared things that i know only her and her maybe sister knows them.
Because is this coldness i feel like nothing i do is good, or nothing is ok for her because she rarely she shows the same.
The good things she is doing is that sometimes she is telling me that she misses me, or that she loves me, she reaches my hand when we walk, she reply fast to messages i give her, is asking me all the time how i'm feeling if i'm ok, she is asking me about my day and most of the time when she is not working we do things together, we spend dozens of seconds looking at eachother eyes. Although I CAN'T handle the fact i feel her very cold when we are together and i'm looking for sings of affection and this makes me very sad.
In the beginning of the relantionship i was very warm with her but after 3-4 months, i got tired and i became cold aswell, last week she FINALLY told me that she wants affection even if she seems cold.
Can you please tell me, if the traits i wrote her about the things she is doing are a proof of love (fast reply, asking me how i am etc). Do capricorn woman really need to feel affection from their man, constantly? Because when we fight i toled her "I can't be affective all the time" and she replyed "why not?" And this makes me think this is what she wants.
Dana Tate (author) from LOS ANGELES on November 26, 2019:
I think your Capricorn is aware of how much you care for her considering you two have history. You stated she looks for you when she's sad and, confides in you because she trusts you.
It appears as if you two have a strong bond even though you've broken up. If she's in a relationship at the moment, I would respect that. However, there's no harm in keeping the line of communication open while you continue to date and live your own life.
If it's meant to be things will work out. People who love each other can't stay away from each other long.
Sami on November 23, 2019:
Hello . I am Aries and I was in a relationship with Capricorn.
After we broke up I loved her more and started chasing her, when she entered into a new relationship she told me about her love,
I rejected it, I came back looking for sometimes we talk as friends, I know her past whenever she is sad looking for me, You tell me she trusts me, She cares more about her ambitions, 4 years have passed I . have multiple relationships, but I love her so much, I don't know if she loves me, What do you think? ...
I am Aries tell me what to do and how to make sure she loves her Or we are just friends
Dana Tate (author) from LOS ANGELES on October 22, 2019:
Capricorn women are cautious but if they're feeling someone they want to ensure that person knows. They're intuitive and have a feel for people who are genuine and not wasting their time.
Capricorn women like men who are intellectual so keep winning her over with your charm. Don't focus too much on what she's not revealing she will in her own time just continue to move forward and see where the road takes you.
midnightsunrise on October 22, 2019:
That's interesting you mention that 2 months is too long. I've read all over that a Capricorn woman likes to takes things slow. I know I didn't want to rush myself, because I still wanted to get to know her as she has been slow to reveal personal things about her.
Dana Tate (author) from LOS ANGELES on October 22, 2019:
If she's flirting back and, light touching was involved, I will say 2 months is too long. Obviously, she likes you so, go for it!
If a Capricorn woman is not interested in you, she will bluntly tell you and not encourage you.
midnightsunrise on October 22, 2019:
Pisces male here. Been flirting and chatting with a Capricorn woman for 2 months now. She has flirted back. Also some light touching was involved. Looking for advice on being direct with her and telling her I am interested in her. Would a Capricorn woman appreciate me telling her my interest just after 2 months of talking?
Dana Tate (author) from LOS ANGELES on September 01, 2019:
I wouldn't be surprised if dating a coworker makes her nervous. Cap's are private and don't like people in their business. She's probably worried about workplace gossip and, what will happen if things don't work out because if it doesn't, the situation can become uncomfortable.
Cappies run hot and cold that's part of their personality. For things to work you have to let her know that your personal business outside of the work place will be just that...your personal business. Remember, discretion is the key plus a little patience and things will fall into place.
Desmond Joseph on September 01, 2019:
This Cap colleague i'm in love with, workplace buddies, she knows i got a soft corner for her. Doesn't really give in, likes keepin it low key, plays hard to catch, can't get enough of her; at times inert as hell, at other times fairly responsive. Not much consistent though. what to do?
Dana Tate (author) from LOS ANGELES on August 05, 2019:
Benita-- I have been in the same boat. Capricorn's are very loyal and we give our all. We are also, one of the most misunderstood signs of the zodiac.
He will find you. Just keep living your life and being the best you, you can be. The right man will be watching you and when the time is right everything will fall into place.
Benita on August 04, 2019:
I'm a Capricorn, I've had countless heartbreaks because I love too much, can I ever find someone who won't take my love for granted?
Dana Tate (author) from LOS ANGELES on May 15, 2019:
A Capricorn is very independent and some are shy; as for your friends they may be jealous of you. Cappies give others the impression they are comfortable in their skin. They are ambitions and hard workers. They are usually admired by employers for their work ethics. People will say they don't like Cappies yet, when they need advice or help we are usually the ones they run to because we are loyal.
You may feel you don't understand and, don't have a lot of sympathy, but what's probably the truth is you don't have time for the bull-s**t. It's one thing to have a legitimate problem and another thing to being reduced to the pillow people cry on.
In my situation I have a lot of people who are "associates," I can't call them friends. They call or come to me when they need something or some advice of some kind and then they are gone.
Most Capricorns are respected but few are really liked. Their tell-it-like-it-is, mouth and their drive which makes them march to the beat of their own drum, just doesn't fit in with most.
My advice is to find a small circle of friends you have more in common with. Don't give advice or opinion unless asked and even then proceed with caution.
Julia on May 14, 2019:
Hi, I am a Capricorn born on January 14th and I was wondering I feel as if a lot of my friends just hate me. I am super independent and kinda shy. I feel like if I say something wrong, they will hate me forever so I don’t want to screw up. I also feel like I can’t understand how to be sympathetic, a lot of what your saying is true but some just doesn’t fit me. I do have a Cancer moon sign.
Dana Tate (author) from LOS ANGELES on April 18, 2019:
I'm the same way. I'm not chasing dreams like I did when I was younger. I don't like younger men because I need a man who can hold his weight with me intellectually. I also need a man who is not a push over otherwise I would run all over him because I'm strong. I love makeup sex but I can't have someone who's boring in bed. It took me years to become uninhibited and he needs to keep up.
KeriRae on April 18, 2019:
Maybe I'm different. I am 45 yrs old and still single. I dont mind it. I just wont marry a man that wants me to sit at home and be bored.
I am friends with all my exes -some for decades.
When it comes to sex, I'm probably more open minded than anyone I know.
I have let work get to me. Now that I'm older, I'd rather have fun and relax.
I just cannot date a younger man or a man without a stable job. Who wants to take care of a man?!
I've just recently found a stable man worth marrying but we fight a lot and I find myself saying mean things to him before I catch it. He gives it right back though. If he didn't, I wouldnt respect him and quickly lose interest. Months after meeting, we've met in the middle. We have fewer fights but sex is becoming boring. I think I'd prefer to fight, break up and have great make up sex.
I'm the capricorn spinster, I guess.
Dana Tate (author) from LOS ANGELES on December 08, 2018:
Because there cannot be two Queens in the castle. I have always been drawn to Leo's most are intellectual and great conversationalist. The animal symbol for the Leo is a lion and lions are kings and Queens (of the jungle that is) Leo's are prideful and arrogant (like some Cap's) Leo's according to them, are always right and never wrong. Even if they are proven to be wrong most will never apologize and would rather brush it under the rug. This can clash with the Cap, who can be grudge holders. Also, the Leo woman can be very flirtatious and craves a lot of attention, its all about them, and this also clashes with the personality of the reserved and serious Cap.
Kayla on December 04, 2018:
Why is it that i can not stand leo females...im a capricorn lady
Dana Tate (author) from LOS ANGELES on November 14, 2018:
Your ex is a Sagittarius I only dated one Sagittarius that I know of and I didn't find myself compatible with him. however I was much younger maybe the experience would be different if I tried again.
Dana Tate (author) from LOS ANGELES on October 30, 2018:
I am humbled by your words. I have heard so many negative things about Capricorn's that I was inspired to give them the truth. Capricorn's are the most misunderstood out of all the signs. Capricorn women are intellectual and ambitious. If we get with the wrong type of man he will try to keep us down. Capricorn women must be careful because they are too faithful and love too hard. Once burned we are forever cautious and people mistake this for coldness or meanness but that's far from the truth Capricorn's are intuitive and they certainly are not fools.
Tiffany thank you for your wonderful comment. I'm pleased I represented us Cap's in truth.
Tiffany from Illinois on October 29, 2018:
This has to be the truest thing I have ever read about my sign EVER. I grew up in a household where horoscopes were wrong/of the devil, and never really read into them until I got older. I read this out loud to my husband, who smirked the whole time... and chuckled through a few sections. We both laughed at the end, and I told him how I never felt that any article embodied my true nature until this one.
Dana Tate (author) from LOS ANGELES on October 29, 2018:
That comment was simply powerful and intuitive. I actually think it was something I needed to see at the time I saw it. Cap's do have a hard time resting and enjoying the moment. Some never stop to enjoy the fruits of their labor before they are off laboring for something else.
It breaks my heart to realize that by the time Cap's learn they need to love and respect themselves and not try so hard to get that from other's , they have burned many bridges. They can spend years chasing success sacrificing relationships with kids, family and friends and realize too late that what they sacrificed was more valuable than the material things they gained.
Thank you for leaving such a valuable comment on this page. You have a lot of wisdom which I'm sure helped people who wants to understand how to love and understand, Capricorn women.
Dana Tate (author) from LOS ANGELES on October 29, 2018:
Unfortunately, some men are intimidated by strong, ambitious women and this is why a Cap, must be mindful of choosing men who are accomplished in their own right and respect the hustle of an ambitious woman.
Also, word from the wise. Capricorn women must use their strength to be team-players and not compete with their man. Save the competition for the boardroom not the bedroom. Cap's are known to be social climbers but once you get there it can be lonely at the top if, you are there by yourself.
D on October 25, 2018:
As a Cancer stellium with Mars in Cap in the 12th.. it breaks my heart when Cap people refuse to give themselves comfort and rest. down to the fabrics they wear and the sheets they sleep in. It takes so long for some to earn their own respect..it may take years... and you see one in trouble and know they will have to fight to prove themselves.. and the fear can slow them down if they don't have a clear goal or ways to go above obstacles...but you know they have to torture themselves.. I think it's not just about finances but about success and reputation cause I know many people whose Uranus/Neptune in Capricorn hits their personal planets and they have artistic aspirations...
D on October 25, 2018:
Begin by having a job. Don't date a Cap woman if you don't have a job and are intimidated by ambitious women. Be financially solvent and accountable for yourself. Cap women deserve someone who can hold their own in a relationship. Srsly.
Dana Tate (author) from LOS ANGELES on October 17, 2018:
It's always a pleasure to be validated by a fellow Cap. It simply adds more credibility to anyone, trying to love and understand the Capricorn woman.

I believe most of them are true. Cappies find it hard to stay in love. They're very driven but they don't pause that often. Well done.
Dana Tate (author) from LOS ANGELES on August 01, 2018:
Tracey, you went through a bad relationship and came out better and not bitter that in itself speaks a lot about your character. Leading with your heart instead of your head is something that happens whether we want it to or not. After all, the heart wants what it wants. I will suggest that if you find yourself in that situation, you do not ignore the warning signs and red flags. Intuition or discernment if you will is designed to help us walk safely.
Thank you for contributing and leavening such an insightful comment for my readers.
Tracey on August 01, 2018:
I'm a cappie and 3 years ago I was swept away by "sweet words and outer appearances" - a handsome Pisces! It felt rushed but I let my heart choose and I went "all in". Today, I am picking up the pieces - in cappie terms, it was acutely damaging financially as well as emotionally and I am starting over. I learned so much tho about myself - if it weren't for certain financial aspects, I'd say I don't regret a thing. I feel very strongly that what I didn't know before is that my heart knows exactly what makes me happy, and that my mind and my planning and my ideas about happiness are just theories in the end. I'm not waiting/wishing for a shining knight or winning the lotto because I feel certain that none of what I *thought* would make me happy can compare to my heart actually *feeling* happiness. Letting my heart love bravely was the only way I discovered what makes me happy. I know now that the right love partner will bring a deep happiness to my cappie life which I would not have *thought* to be true until I felt it. Thank you for a spot on assessment. I do encourage any cappie tho - anyone really - to let your heart make some choices over your head. My heart-felt experience was my best teacher and I found my heart to be the bravest thing about me.

Mike Saying Capricorn women can be selfish and shows no humility seems to be your personal bad experience and not a true trait of the Capricorn woman. I'm sure some are selfish as with any sign but that could add up to many factors. I for one am not selfish. Thanks for commenting.
Mike jasi on July 23, 2018:
The noted traits are very subjective as they are not inline with reality showing traits of selfishness with no humility
And a character based on material things vis v the female side

Dave, Capricorn women who have been hurt in previous relationships can come off as "cold" More than likely shes guarding her heart until she can figure you out. If you are sincere in your interest to get to know her, the Ice Queen will melt like ice cream on a hot summer day.

Thank you Ashley. Its great to receive confirmation from a fellow Cap!

You were 100% on point im a capricorn abd you nailed it....
Dave on June 12, 2018:
Hi, I've read all the above and I'm in the same boat. I've talked to this girl alot before meeting on phone calls and text and I feel shes opened up quite abit. We have had a few dates and on the dates they have been kisses, holding hands in the cinema/ alot of hand moments and touching, she constantly is touching her hair. We also laugh alot.
I really really like this girl even though its early days, but she seems cold and has agree to over dates but it's more in a
"Amazing? aww hardly.....

Interesting take on Capricorns Dana. Interesting indeed!
So much of complexity in life! Good you write about this sign and its intricacies. Good to know! Have a great day.

Rosanna Dana, I agree with you one hundred percent. Cap's are very practical. Most are not led away by foolish desires but are realistic in understanding you have to work hard for what you want, and unless you come from wealth, depend on yourself. Cap's are cautious with money because it gives them the peace of mind that they need. I also have that little girl in me that wishes her prince charming will come and make all her dreams come true. Am I counting on it? No. Still I dream.
Rosanna Dana, thank you for contributing to this article. Your insight is more than appreciated.
Rosanna Dana on June 03, 2018:
Enjoyed overall. Am cap female, but I'd like to maybe offer possible insight into why a cap might seem overly concerned with finance due to greed. From my experience, it's more due to the feeling and understanding in most realistic way that we may not win the lottery or be swept away by someone that wants to make our dreams come true. We try to find a practical way to have security and build resources to enjoy life. Also, though, a little part of me still wishes and keeps the magical hope that maybe a little of the unreal could happen just for the little kid in us. (giggles) Annd, Dana Tate, I agree! Nothing takes the place of true, genuine love. :)

Winter, thank you for reading and leaving that comment. It helps to know I was right on track. Or, as close as I could get.

Mikki. A Capricorn is always concerned about finances. However, nothing can take the place of true, genuine love. you are spot on about being attracted to men of intellect. Capricorn love men with ambition and drive. Thank you for reading and commenting.

Dana Tate (author) from LOS ANGELES on April 19, 2018:
Tessy, my family also finds it hard to understand me thanks for reading and commenting. Susie, sometimes arrogant is a strong word. However "confident" seems to be the best description of a Capricorn woman. Priya, everything you said about women needing to have their own is true. You will find that right mate who Respect's that. Ladies, thank you for commenting.
Lillie on April 18, 2018:
You nailed it. This is me to the core.
J on April 17, 2018:
Love it, these are absolute facts! Especially the temper and sharp tongue one, I can hella relate. I also just want me a capricorn guy as well.
Priya on April 11, 2018:
True...about romantic part...because I prefer my financial stability over all love and cupid hitting me. Which is why I lose out on guys a lot, and it frustrates my mom that I haven't yet got married. She is like marry someone who is educated and good salary, and back in my head I am always thinking about what about my financial security and professional security. I need to have some sought of back up, what if something happens in future and my husbands doesn't keeps anything in my name, then what? will I be begging on the street for money. So yes my romantic life, isn't so fun, as I always keep procrastinating about future, and I don't like running after any guy, if there is games involved in it, I find it very tiring task, emotionally, mentally, and physically. I love to respect myself, and protect myself from any such heartbreak, because I am prone to depression, and quick depression, because I know I am extremely sensitive and emotional person. So it hurts me deeply, when I have to chase some guy, and show him love, and if I don't find him to financially responsible, yes it is a big red flag to me, because relationship and finance intertwine together, and there is no peace or fun when there is financial instability in any relationship. This is one of the main reasons of break ups and divorce rates going up. Hence, I rather stay single and earn my own money than to be married to someone who fails to manage financial responsibility and ending up in break up or divorce.

Mathmatics God Allah, thank you for leaving this beautiful tribute to your wife. I'm sure it will help any man, who is considering taking a Capricorn woman for his wife." The bible says; " He, who finds a wife finds a good thing. I am pleased that you found your "good thing" in a strong, dependable, Capricorn

Thank you Michelle. As a fellow Capricorn, I'm sure you can understand why it's important for others to understand Capricorn Women. Sometimes we get a bad rap but I always say to know us is to love us. If any man wants to come correct, a Capricorn woman can be his best bet. Thank you for commenting.

It comes from also going on a search of self-discovery. As a Capricorn, I compared not only my own traits, but that of other Capricorn's as well. Many people feel Capricorn's are difficult. I say, we are not difficult, you just need to understand us. Cheyl W. Poe. Thank you for reading and commenting.
