They know how to stick to their commitments, when to say yes, and when to say no. There is never a cheat day on her diet, her word is her word. She is always generous and tries to help others, but never promises to anything that she doesn’t think that she can follow through on.

Attracting a Capricorn Woman

Capricorn women tend to be compatible with Cancer and Virgo. Cancer looks for the same stability and consistency in life that Capricorn values, and so will find Capricorn’s strict schedule liberating rather than frustrating.

I am a female Capricorn married to a male Aquarius for 33 years. Best relationship that I have ever had and we are now separated. That has not affected our relationship or feelings we just grew apart and where aware of it while it was happening and I was ok with it going that direction. Would I do it again if I was to do it over again?? Yes !! We worked well together. Things were not perfect always as all things require work and adjustment at times but it was very good no matter what was going on as we maintained a common respect and I can say I regret none of it. We are still great friends.

Michel Loiret November 4 2020 4.50pm I've just met someone (I am an Aquarian male) who a Capricorn (female) and we have just instantly clicked. I am astonished that things have gone so fast. My main point is that she almost exactly 'mirrors' the Capricorn profile which has been of enormous benefit to me in understanding her, and her needs,wants, and motivation(s)

Honestly I would have liked to know more about children because I am very motherly but I don't want kids I have enough to deal with. My mother was a cancer and I don't know my father's zodiac sign. That's helpful when trying to understand why I am oblivious to sarcasm. (Which is something we are supposed to be queen like with?) When looking here I was also wishing for ideas for college because I don't know whether to dorm or get an apartment. I get a dorm I can get some of the cost knocked down for being from instate but if I go with an apartment I live there for a few years and after I graduate I can still have a place to live afterwards.
