The Capricorn Woman
Climbing every mountain, crossing every stream, the Capricorn woman is the powerhouse of the zodiac. She has a cool, standoffish charm. Her lofty ambitions and inner drive often leave everyone else behind in the dust. She will kick anything and everything out of the way to make her date with destiny. Incredibly tough, a Capricorn woman will weather any storm, disappointment or tragedy, calmly rising ever upwards. Not surprisingly, Saturn is Capricorn’s ruling planet. Saturn is the taskmaster that drives ambitions, accomplishments and achievements; this planet’s energy is focused on following the rules and taking responsibility, two of Capricorn’s finest qualities.
Elegant and glacial, they may seem unapproachable. Beneath her reserved exterior lurks a wonderful sense of humor. It’s the humor of a wise old soul with no illusions. Outwardly the Capricorn woman is a complex bundle of practicality, often reserving her fun and sexy wild side exclusively for those who are very close to her. She’s very grounded in reality, she’s the rock that everyone else loves to lean on. She delivers on her promises. Caps are highly dependable, yet they can still suffer inwardly from mood swings that carry them from the heights of euphoria to bouts of depression. In most cases, they are adept at concealing these conflicting moods. There is almost always something guarded about them. It is only their closest friends and family who are given a glimpse of this inner turmoil.
This woman is very savvy about how things work in life, and she knows how to climb mountains just like her sign’s icon, the goat. She is competitive, though she is usually more interested in besting her own efforts than those of rivals. 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 hard work brings. They often place a very high value on material security. Even as a child, Ms. Capricorn probably had a savings account, piggy bank or both. This sign can be very frugal as they are not only saving for a rainy day but also to enjoy their retirement years. Capricorns have a much stronger awareness of time than the other signs, and they do worry about their future. Money equals security to them.
In love she is slow and careful. Never one to wander from one flirtation to another, 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. She is as romantic and emotional as anyone else, but can be somewhat inhibited in expressing her emotions. Caps tend to be somewhat distrusting of love and the other person’s motives in general. People of this sign exercise extreme caution before revealing their true emotions, and this understandably gets in the way of starting romantic relationships. They would rather keep their feelings to themselves if it means risking rejection.
She’s a classy, upscale woman, woo her and court her like a lady. You’ll impress her with stories of times you’ve persevered, or what you’re building up in your life. But all talk and no action will raise suspicions. Shower her with nice gifts, she won’t need flash or fanciful fantasies, just a deep emotional connection with her lover. Only strong, thoughtful, and sexy partners need apply, as the Capricorn lover will take you through your paces and is likely to outlast you. She may seem cautious and reserved, but with the right partner, she can be downright naughty!
This is a woman who knows how to love and create a warm household and family life. If you’ve been able to win her trust and love, you will quickly realize the prize you’ve won. A Capricorn woman will stand by her partner through thick and thin, as long as she receives the attention and respect she deserves. Capricorns are interested in protecting what they hold dearest, whether it be their financial assets or their significant other. If you’re lucky enough to get into a relationship with one of these people, their attraction to stability means that they’ll protect and defend the relationship at any cost, even at great personal sacrifice. At times her instinct to protect may tend toward the possessive; this can cause conflict in relationships. More carefree individuals may find this protective nature stifling or restricting, but those who appreciate reliability won’t feel smothered and will recognize this trait as a definite advantage and sign of love and complete devotion.
The Capricorn Man
Practical and reserved, the Capricorn man is a hard-working, down-to-earth person. This is one man who goes after what he wants. His greatest strength is his ability to set goals and pursue them until attained. Nothing gets in the way of a Capricorn’s plans and ambitions. Somewhat misunderstood, Capricorn’s self-sufficiency is often mistook for coldness. Capricorns like to do everything themselves this way there is no worry about something unfinished or not done properly. It is all about control of their surroundings and their daily lives, and, sometimes this spills into other people’s lives too. In the extreme, Saturn’s influence can drive Caps to the point of ruthlessness, a less desirable component of the Capricorn personality and definitely one to keep in check.
Logic will rule this man’s day, but there is a fun side to the Capricorn man once he relaxes in the company of friends and family. He finds it difficult to lose that reserved outlook, so you’ll never find him making a fool of himself at any social event. Even the more outgoing Goats have a somewhat guarded manner, as they are usually exceptionally aware of how they are coming across. He just doesn’t know how to express his emotions without feeling self-conscious in the process. However, he is very humorous and often in a sarcastic way, and has an interesting take on the world.
While dating, he’s as unreadable as the Sphinx, and just as immovable. The courtship could take what seems like ages, with no signs that you’re making an impression. You’ve got to have patience to win the heart of this man, and that’s a built-in test of whether you’re right for him, and he for you. Capricorn seeks stability. Like most other things in his life, the Capricorn man treats love seriously. He is not a flirt, nor a player. He believes in true love and will wait patiently for it, and when finding it, will work hard to keep it. He has high standards and will admire from afar before making his move. The Capricorn man does not waste time with mind games. He is a closet romantic, deep, deep down underneath that thick hide. He may surprise you in the bedroom, turning from tame goat to wild satyr in the space of time it takes you to turn the lights down low. Your Capricorn man’s most enduring quality is his unexpected, silly sense of humor. This is such a different side of his ambitious and driven personality that it will catch you off guard. Don’t be afraid to laugh in bed, for you will endear yourself to Mr. Capricorn forever.
Once they fall in love and commit, the typical Capricorn is unlikely to jeopardize the union. They place great importance on personal happiness. Capricorns respond well to domestic life because it provides stability. He will be a source of support and strength to his partner, and the role of protector comes easily to him. The Capricorn man is a bit like a soldier: dutiful, hardworking and best when he has a country or family to serve. Becoming a father is like being elevated from private to four-star general. He now has troops to direct, missions to launch, and something bigger than himself to build. Family is the ultimate undertaking for him, and he’s a consummate project manager, and may even rule his with an iron fist if necessary. You may need to set boundaries as your Cap love may have a tendency to be dominant, or too controlling. More carefree individuals may find this protective nature stifling or restricting, but those who appreciate reliability won’t feel smothered and will recognize this trait as a definite advantage and sign of love and complete devotion.
Sometimes however, a Capricorn might carry his natural seriousness a bit too far, so as to appear emotionally distant. Draw him out of his melancholic moods, by making him feel deeply cherished with some ego-stroking. Although you do need a sense of timing, knowing when to leave him alone. The Goat is the ultimate Man in the Cave, and needs time to churn within, and tune in to his own soundings. Show your Capricorn love that you can respect his need for time and refection. His dream relationship is one that allows him to be in a balanced partnership with someone just as strong as he is. The rewards for hanging in there are exquisite for those that value loyalty and timeless love.
