How to Love and Understand Capricorn Women

Updated on November 27, 2016

What Capricorn Women Seem Like

For as long as I can remember horoscopes have been a popular way to receive insight on ourselves and others. Some people even plan their day based on what their horoscope says. Although I don't use horoscopes as far as choosing or not choosing a mate, any guy I deal with personally, I always ask him his astrological sign. I believe knowing this will give me insight into his character.

When a guy asks me my sign and I tell him a Capricorn I receive different reactions. Some say, "Oh, Capricorn's are cool." Others will frown and start listing all the negative traits they feel belong to Capricorns. Some have confessed they felt Capricorn women were difficult to get along with. In some cases that is true, but not quite. So since I am a Capricorn woman, although I cannot speak for all Capricorn women, I decided to give men insight on how to love and understand the Capricorn woman.



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 the tongue, they are extremely loyal to those they care about and they enjoy having a good time in fact most Capricorns are very witty and have a sense of humor.

As a Friend

Capricorns are serious and analytical. They have many associates but few friends most would rather keep their circle small, their no-nonsense personality makes it difficult for them to tolerate things they deem as silly. This is especially true in many young Capricorn women. With age, Capricorn women usually lighten up.

As her finances become in order she usually evolves and becomes more humorous and less skeptical. A Capricorn will have your back through thick and thin but will cut you loose without a thought if you cross them. They are easy to offend, known for holding grudges and do not forgive easily. A Capricorn woman holds herself to high standards and she expects loyalty from her inner circle of friends.

In Business

Horoscopes can be helpful when you are dealing with people in business as well. For example, most Capricorns are shrewd when it comes to business, they love the almighty dollar, maybe a little too much.

They are hardworking, determined and ambitious. Overly ambitious, this is because most men and women Capricorns value themselves by success and a Capricorn whose finances are not in order is an insecure Capricorn. In-fact, Capricorns are so career-minded, relationships can become secondary in their pursuit for stability.

Anyone dating a Capricorn who is not financially stable, may feel neglected as the Capricorn chases his or her dreams. If you are patient with the Capricorn, however, when things get in order, you will have yourself a strong and solid mate.

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 make it hard for men to deal with her. Submissiveness is not a strong trait in a Capricorn woman, however, she can be very submissive if she has a mate who has a strong personality and is a good provider.

Capricorns do not like to play games. They hate mind games and people who use games to manipulate and control. Capricorns lose interest fast. They won't waste time chasing someone who's always running. Capricorns like people who are confident in their own skin and have their own passion and dreams.

What Kind of Men Are Capricorn Women Attracted to?

Capricorn women crave security, they tend to be drawn to men who are intellectual. This can sometimes be the downside 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 and if not, her beloved may find himself dealing with a mean spirit. Capricorn women need to feel secure and if her finances are not in order she has no peace, and neither will the person she is dealing with. When it comes to love, some lady Capricorn's do not set a high standard for her men, as she does for herself, and the people around her. So in this case, love usually backfires for the goat who foolishly chooses with her heart.

Positive Characteristics

  1. Loyal
  2. Hardworking
  3. Team player
  4. Ambitious
  5. Spiritual
  6. Classy

Negative Characteristics

  1. Too serious
  2. Analytical
  3. Melancholy
  4. Unforgiving
  5. Suspicious
  6. Arrogant

As Confidantes

Capricorn women are usually more respected than liked. It's not that people don't like Capricorns, it's her tell-it-like-it-is personality, that can come off as hurtful and arrogant. 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 come off as cold and in-compassionate, but she's really just being true to her character. A wiser Capricorn will understand it's not the message but the delivery of the message that counts. This does not take away from the fact that people love to confide in Capricorn women not only will she give you good advice but she can be trusted with your secrets.

As Wives and Mothers

Most Capricorn women make good wives and even better mothers. She is a nurturer and loves a beautiful home. Although, most Capricorn women are very ambitious, she can be the go-getter in the family or, the woman behind the scenes supporting her man.

For the lady Capricorn, it doesn't matter whose driving, as long as the overall goal is accomplished. One of the positive traits in a Capricorn woman is she is a team-player and if she is part of a winning team she is happy.


Capricorn women are reserved and suspicious. A Capricorn woman 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's not true for all Capricorn women so I must say that for me, if I don't truly trust who I'm with, as far as issues with fidelity, then I proceed with caution. 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.

What Do They Like?

Capricorn women love the finer things in life, however because she is practical she will more likely look for expensive things at bargain prices. She in 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.

So, how can you love this complicated and complex woman? 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 holding on to.

Do you use horoscopes to check someone's sign in order to receive insight into their character?

      Interesting. This describes my wife very well. But she is not a Capricorn. Maybe they got her birthdate mixed up.

      Eric, thank you for being the first to read and leave a funny comment. I'm sure many husbands will feel the same way.

      Great insightful hub and this made me relate to a Capricorn woman relative. It is amazing that most of your observations seem to be correct with regard to Capricorn woman. I love to know more about different people through Zodiac sign study and observations.

      Interesting hub and thanks for sharing!

      This was very interesting Dana. Thank you for the insight into the Capricorn woman. My wife and I and two of our sons are Taurus. The other son and daughter are Sagittarius. May is a very expensive time for birthdays :) in our house.

      A very interesting hub! I don't have any Capricorn female friend, so can't really comment on how true the traits are. But I admire Capricorns for their sense of humor.

      ChitrangadaSharan, thank you for reading and commenting. I love to have fun with zodiacs comparing the characteristics of what is said about a person under that sign; and although you can never be quite on the money you will find similarities. Capricorns were easy because I know many Capricorns, including myself, and most have the characteristics I described, but of course, not all. Have a great weekend.

      Jodah I also have many Capricorns in my family, and it is very, very expensive that time of the month also. Not to mention, we also buy for others because it's before or after Christmas. My best friend happens to be a Taurus and I dated a Taurus guy. Our signs have many compatible traits, which, I'm sure you've noticed in the way we see things which have inspired many of our hubs. Thanks for commenting.

      Swalia, thank you for reminding me that "humor" is also a strong trait in a Capricorn. Many of my friends tell me if I don't make it in my other endeavors, being a comedian is something I should pursue. Although I love to make people laugh, I feel I'm too moody to ever be a serious comedian.

      Hey Dana, This is a very useful hub for sure if you are into reading your horoscope. I'm a Scorpio, yet I have to admit; I don't believe in what the stars predict for me, nor do I believe the personality traits associated with my sign. I think it's because I totally know myself so well, when I read the personality traits, they don't all sound like me. Besides the fact that my younger sister is also a Scorpio and if there were any two people as different as night and day, we are. In saying that though, it is an interesting topic. Especially if some do say they fall in the category of their sign's personality, and also if their horoscopes read true most days. If that happens to some, I could totally see their belief in the sign they fall under. :)

      Thank you for reading and commenting Missy. I know that I, and many others I know exhibit the signs I mentioned above, but not all. I do see enough characteristics in common signs to get insight into someone else, however, I cannot totally go by that alone because as you say, some of the traits do not always line up.

      A good description of traits of Capricorn women. I have found that in many instances the traits of preceding or succeeding Zodiac signs overlap or are present in addition to the traits of a particular Zodiac sign.

      Thanks Dana for sharing a nice hub.

    • Dana Tate profile image

      Dana Tate 15 months ago from LOS ANGELES

      Thank you for making that point Dr Pran Rangan. I have also seen that trait in myself. I carry some traits from both Sagittarius and Aquarius. I believe that's why even though some may be of a particular sign they may not exhibit all of the traits. Thank you for commenting.

      My sister is a Capricorn, so I know they can be challenging. Sometimes they can be sweet on top, but there is ice beneath the flowering tundra. Great hub!

      Thank you, Mel Carriere, as a Capricorn myself, you are spot on with those characteristics.

      Hi Dana, you actually described a "Libra" I once dealt with. This was very good to know.

      Dana Tate 9 months ago from LOS ANGELES

      Hi Word,

      Horoscopes are a fun way to try to figure out someone before becoming "too invested" in them. The traits I described about how Capricorn women deal with finances really applies to all women. Every woman I know, regardless of her sign, is a force to be reckoned with if her house is not in order. Thank's for reading and commenting.

      Spot ON!!!

      Loved reading the comments and had a good laugh at nailed most of the characteristics so accurately that it is downright scary!!

      Thank you Angela, for reading and leaving a comment. I am also a Capricorn, Dec,24th. And it is so true that there is a bit of ice that lies beneath. Mostly it comes from trust issues and once a person proves they are loyal, which is what a Capricorn desires, then Capricorn's can be a persons best friend.

      Sunitha, thank you for reading and commenting. Yes, it was funny for me also to list the traits of Capricorn women, and then seeing myself. There are positive and negative traits in all signs. Personally I don't think we are all that bad. As long as Capricorn's can trust you, and their friends and partners understand that Capricorns are ambitious, Capricorn's can be very good mates.
