The Capricorn woman is formidable and has her own agenda. She respects confidence and those that go after what they want with no excuses. Cappy women have a public face that allows them to be successful on a large scale. They present themselves as strong leaders, often taking roles as the backbone of their communities or other spheres.

Capricorn is a cardinal sign, and thus, an initiator.  It takes a confident lover to win her respect and her heart. It takes time to enter her private life or win her discriminating heart.  Capricorn in love is tradition-minded, sensible with a surprisingly dirty mind.  

She's the least likely to fall into romantic delusions about who you are, or who she is. That kind of sober perspective makes her cautious in love. She takes her own sweet time and will resent being rushed into anything. She carefully considers what she'll invest in, before opening her heart. She wants to know you're worthy.

Qualities of a Capricorn Woman

Here are some more personality traits that are characteristic of a Capricorn woman.


The female SeaGoat admires those who achieve, especially against the odds. 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. She sees what is, and works with that, and is a bad match for a dreamer whose feet are not firmly on the ground.

Her nature puts her in charge, and the right lover will share the decision-making. She doesn't like to leave things to chance and is a one-woman planning committee. She plans ahead, so a date goes smoothly, with reservations in place, and tickets in hand.

She'll appreciate thoughtful ideas and punctuality. Her standards are high and lead toward high culture and sophisticated dining establishments. She likes gifts that have lasting value, or are useful to her. She'll recoil at cheap presents bought in the airport gift shop. She'll take note of gifts that show you understand where she's aimed, and support what she's building.

Wit and Wisdom

The Capricorn woman is intelligent and sensible. Her humor is legendary, but is often dry and delivered with a deadpan expression. It's the humor of a wise old soul with no illusions, perhaps an influence of her ruler Saturn.

Often, Cappy delivers zingers that go to the stark truth about the human conditions. If you can elevate her, or elicit a throaty laugh, with your own humor, you're on your way.

Aged to Perfection

It's a truism that Capricorn ages in reverse. The old soul young Capricorn girl matures into a classic handsome woman. The weight of her personality needs time to fully inhabit, and she seems to lighten up, as she goes. Just like a fine wine or cheese, she gets better with age.

She's attracted to those that take care of themselves, for good health to last a lifetime. She wants a partner who stays vitally active into the golden years.

Earthy Queen

The Capricorn woman is an earth sign -- sensual, lusty, and physically affectionate. She has a healthy appetite for sex. She requires a whole lotta man to satisfy her, in the bedroom and in life.

She has a worldly nature, perhaps more than any other sign. Her ​sun sign mission is to experiment with creating powerfully in the physical plane. And to fully inhabit the 5-sense reality.

For ideas to keep it earthy, look at Earth elements when there's too little in the birth chart if you're ungrounded yourself. You'll impress them more with substance than with flash.

Joining her at the ground level is a key to making it work. Look for ways to celebrate earth-plane mastery, and impress her with your own capabilities. And balance it out with sensual pleasure, from exquisitely prepared meals at home to total abandon to physical intimacy.
