It's often said that Capricorns are born old and grow younger as they age, and this holds true for the women of this sign. As a child, a Capricorn woman could already take care of herself and may have even assumed a parental role with a parent or her siblings. Perhaps she did it because she could or maybe because she had to. But in either case, she likely took on responsibilities that were beyond her years.

As a Teen

Even as a teenager a Capricorn woman was already ambitious and a sharp observer of life. She saw the big picture, knew the value of money, maintained control of herself, looked to the future, and was obsessed with making the most of her time. Her strong, reserved nature was a bit intimidating to the boys, but she wasn't overly concerned. She didn't want to waste her time dating; she wanted a job and her own money.

As a Woman

She's a natural born leader who has the confidence, entrepreneurial spirit and steely determination to go after and realize her dreams, goals, and aspirations.

As a Friend

A Capricorn woman usually has many acquaintances, but only has a small group of close friends. She has high standards for herself and expects the same from her friends. If you're her friend, she'll have your back through thick and thin, and will always be there for you to lean on. However, she can also quickly cut you lose if you disrespect her. Hurt a Capricorn woman, and she can be unforgiving, and no amount of apologizing or trying to right the wrong will restore her trust in you.

Love and the Capricorn Woman

Behind a Capricorn woman's tough, self-sufficient exterior is the soft, protected heart of a woman who needs to feel loved, cared for, and respected. Love is not a game for her, she knows what she wants and won't waste her time with or settle for anything less. Her goal is to build a lasting relationship, and when she finds someone who's strong and confident enough in themselves to let her be herself, she's all in, and entirely committed through good times and bad.

As a Lover

She's a physically sexual woman, who's very demanding of herself in the bedroom. In bed, as in everything else, a Capricorn woman is all about working hard and reaping the rewards. She may appear to be reserved in every other aspect of her life, but in bed, she's an earthy, sensual, and passionate woman, who's lusty and fearless.

Wife and Mother

Marriage and motherhood soften a Capricorn woman. She makes a good wife and an even better mother. She's maternal and knows how to love and create a warm household and family life. She efficient and organized, wants her family to be happy and will make every effort to give both emotional and financial support to her partner and children. Her very nature inspires those she loves to reach beyond their expectations

Family Manager and Team Player

She's a woman who can successfully juggle the roles of being a wife, mother, and a forceful professional. However, she's also a great team player and an unrivaled manager, which works great for her career, but is also beneficial to her family. She can be the major go-getter of the family, but can just as easily set her career on the back burner for her children and to support her partner's ambitions. She doesn't care who's in the driver's seat, as long as her overall goal of a happy family is accomplished.

Her Dark Side

A Capricorn woman can be the role model for the 21st Century woman, but anyone who knows a Capricorn woman well will tell you she can at times be moody, melancholiac, pessimistic, and cynical about life.

  • A few become cold and hard and deny themselves the joys and comforts of a warm and loving family life in the pursuit of their career and material success.
  • A few keep up appearances by putting smile their face and sounding happy even when they're battling demons, depressed, and finding little joy in their accomplishments or in their day-to-day life.

All Capricorn Women Are Different

Reading Sun sign traits can be fun, but keep in mind Capricorn is only the woman's Sun sign. While all Capricorn women will have these traits to a greater or lesser degree, the variables in an individual Capricorn woman's horoscope can and will modify how she expresses her Capricorn Sun. Think Michelle Obama and Janice Joplin, both have Capricorn Suns but they are very different people.
