Capricorns are ambitious, hard working and never lose sight of their goals. While the pragmatic Capricorn's "one step at a time" approach to getting things done may not be all that interesting, it usually delivers results.

It is not uncommon for Capricorns to be arrogant and overbearing while on their march to success. Of course they will rationalize their behavior by saying a domineering nature is a trait of a born leader. Capricorns are industrious and detail oriented. They are not ones to take risks, which means they often have to wait for success. Being patient and confident they will succeed, the wait for glory is no problem for them.

Capricorn Horoscope Capricorns are traditionalist to the point of often seeming a bit stiff and out of sync. They are not ones to wander far from home or chase wild dreams. They are rational and never have bursts of emotions. Sometimes they can be a bit greedy, but their devotion to work and family offsets this easily. Although their ambition may seem limitless, Capricorns never resort to cheating to succeed. When success does come to them, they find it very fulfilling, because they attained it their way.

The Capricorn In Love:

In a relationship, Capricorns are a slow starters, but prove to be explosive performers and long-lasting, loyal companions. They are quite skilled with people, once they overcome their initial reserve.

When aroused, Capricorns are enthusiastic and adventurous in the art of love, but can be possessive and jealous when threatened. Partners can sometimes be overwhelmed by the intensity of their passion, coming as it does from beneath such a cool exterior. In marriage they are loyal, good providers and strive to develop a strong home environment.

Capricorns strive to conceal their vulnerability beneath a confident veneer of ambition and material success, but passionate Mars is always bubbling just below the surface. When the curtain is lifted, the passion flows like lava from an erupting volcano. Indeed, when they are sure of their ground, they delight in living up to the randy reputation of the Goat.

The Capricorn Woman

Responsible to a fault and a true Earth sign, the Capricorn woman is the type to take her life very seriously. This does not mean the Capricorn woman is any less excited for love, just that she feels that there are things she should take care of as well. These characteristics make the Capricorn woman a careful lover.

The Single Capricorn Woman: Quiet and sometimes withdrawn, expressing her feelings in relation to love and sex can be difficult for the Capricorn woman. This can make it hard for a single Capricorn woman to connect with others when it comes to things like love and sex. The hesitant pragmatist of the signs of the zodiac, the Capricorn woman must always think things through.

The Capricorn in a Relationship: The Capricorn woman is prone to dating those who are just as mature as she is, because the Capricorn woman can sometimes feel old for her age. Sex can seem daunting to a Capricorn woman, because of the emotional connections that she forges. A sometimes shy date, the Capricorn woman can find it hard to put herself out there for fear of rejection. The Capricorn woman is still interested, but can sometimes have trouble showing it.

The Capricorn Man

The Capricorn man is always pragmatic, looking out for himself above all others. He has a fear of getting hurt by letting his emotions be known, and the Capricorn man will often keep perceived hurts to himself rather than rock the boat. Sensitive and loyal when it comes to love and sex, the Capricorn man will do whatever he can to make his partner happy once he feels secure.

The Single Capricorn Man: The Capricorn man's big heart and fear of being hurt can keep him from making the first move when it comes to dating.
