Characteristics of a Capricorn woman

You can’t help but warm to the Capricorn woman. She’s sharp, witty and sociable, and seems very content with her lot in life. She’s also prepared to weather any storm and will put up with temporary hardship if it means she’ll be rewarded with her ‘happy ever after’ in the end.

She’s also a great multi-tasker and can run a household with one hand behind her back. The Capricorn female thinks it’s easy - everything is simply kept in its proper place.

The Capricorn woman in love

Although the Capricorn woman is sensual and seductive, she gives herself a hard time. One day she’s head over heels in love and feels on top of the world, then the next she tumbles to the ground and can’t believe anyone would want to spend their life with her. She desires affection but often feels unworthy of it.

Despite this though, she’ll stand by her partner through thick and thin, inspiring them to achieve remarkable things. As they say, behind every great man there’s a great woman.

How to date a Capricorn woman

Give her time to make a decision, even if you’re only asking her whether she’d prefer an Italian or Indian restaurant. She won’t want to regret her choice later, so allow her to carefully consider all her options. Avoid putting her on the spot.

Always be a gentleman too. Being an Earth sign, the Capricorn woman is a natural nurturer and will slot easily into traditional gender roles. As a wife and mother, she’s one of the best, so let her rule the roost at home. Just never take her for granted.

How NOT to date a Capricorn woman

She may be all smiles at every party or gathering you attend together, but don’t forget she’s there with you. The Capricorn female is insecure and fears she could lose you at any moment, so if she sees you engrossed in conversation with another woman – even if it’s a waitress - she’ll be distraught. Perhaps she takes life, and herself, too seriously, but until you prove you’re not the unfaithful type, she’ll find a reason to worry. And if you’re laughing, share your amusement, otherwise she’ll think the joke’s on her.

The perfect date

Capricorns can be a bit conservative in their ways, and like to go on dates that have been tried and tested, so keep it traditional. A film followed by a glass of wine is just fine. Don’t turn up with two tickets to go skydiving, or propose something equally flamboyant – despite your good intentions to encourage her to let her hair down, your actions will only arouse suspicion that you’ve arranged similar dates many times before.

On a day date, play tennis, get on your bikes, go horse riding – but restrain your competitive side.

Compatibility

A sensible sensitive soul, the Capricorn female won’t put up with indulgent partners who spend money quicker than they earn it, so step aside Leo

As for you, Pisces, move one pace forward. There’s no shortage of chemistry between these two signs. And although different in their outlook in life, this love match can work as Capricorn relaxes with the emotional support offered by an empathetic Pisces. 

If you can put passion on the backburner, companionship with a Virgo also has long-term potential.
