If he grew up pulling on his mother’s long locks, she may wear her hair long. If he feared the dark as a child, she will make sure to have extra lights and candles available.

The Capricorn Woman is usually excellent at working with her hands. Handmade gifts or the transformation of a bachelor’s digs into an instant love nest are among the signs of her affection.

She may react to every crisis in her or her mate’s life by throwing a big bash. Nothing is too fancy or costly for her, and the more frantic the party-giving becomes, the deeper the trouble may be.

- 3. Early marriage in the hopes of a total merger. If she takes this route, she is likely to do so with high hopes but somewhat blindly. If not, she may marry quite late or stay single.
- 4. Capricorn is very likely to choose a man who, in the long run, will not be right for her. It may work for awhile, until her needs change. When natural ambitions and restlessness come to the fore, the marriage too must bend and change, or it will falter.

The Capricorn Woman is both a pragmatist and a romantic. She wants to make a solid investment when she contracts for a romantic commitment, Therefore, she wants a man worthy of it.
She is usually attracted to older men, perhaps as a result of her bond with Daddy, perhaps because older men tend to be more powerful. She wants a man who is a solid citizen, mobile and ambitious in his Field. She wants to be proud and secure in the knowledge that she has chosen well, She also wants him to appreciate her efforts to prod and groom him for social and economic growth.
But money and social power are not likely to be enough for this secret passion flower. She usually also wants a man who is durable and passionate. She does not wish to be stranded on the shores of single-hood when she is blossoming in middle or late middle age, She wants a man with stamina who considers living – and living with her — a fascinating challenge.
Because she feels she lacks flair, she may wish for a mate who has it in abundance, Her ideal man combines pillar-of-the-community status with the irresistible dash of Robert Redford, the vulnerable, sexy charm of Johnny Depp, and the spotlight-grabbing power of Mel Gibson. He is also a sensitive man who is nevertheless tough enough to be a winner, He may be difficult to find, and she may have to do plenty of grooming and prodding. Nevertheless, nobody can accuse Capricorn of giving up easily.
She wants her mate to take care of her financially and to wrap her in silk and fur against her own fears, mostly of poverty and loneliness. She makes plenty of attempts to find such a man and may do so. Yet, when it comes to satisfying the romantic side of her nature, the Capricorn Woman has a harder time.
She frequently dreams of a business magnate or a famous poet with the money and prestige to make her feel protected and noticed, but she also is likely to want a man who will sit with her by the hearth and forgo extra work when she needs him. She desires a mate who knows how to let sex unfold in its own slow rhythms until her submerged passions rise to a crescendo. In brief, Lady Capricom is bound to be looking for the rare successful man who is also sensitive in the area of romance and sex.
The young Capricorn should be very clear on her priorities. Are you looking above all for security or romance? Be aware that your priorities, your needs, will change as you change and grow, You may want a “Daddy” to take care of you now, but if he proves to be too dull or stultifying in five years, what are the chances of the relationship surviving?
The young Capricorn Woman must also be aware of her latent quest for glamor. She normally considers herself sedate and on the conservative side, and she usually unconsciously seeks a man who has charm and a seductive, easy air of conviviality. He may be exciting and glamorous, but he may also turn out to be a cad. She may to have a fling with him, perhaps to glamorize herself, but, he will not fulfill her strong security needs and will probably be unable to keep her respect in the long run.
As a general guideline, using astrological types rather than sun signs, the Capricorn Woman can expect to make money with Aquarius, to be mentally attracted to Gemini and Leo (expect conflict), to have secret doubts and fears about Sagittarius, to be fascinated by and drawn to Cancer (expect lots of compromises), to be sexually magnetized by Virgo and Taurus. She may have to be careful with Aries and Libra, both of whom want to control as much territory as she does, and she may enjoy Pisces and dominate the relationship.
The Capricorn Woman is a born climber. She is bound to succeed in any area of life, but she must conquer her own black moods and their major source, her fear. She fears many things. She is frightened of being unloved, alone, ill, and poor. She may fear life itself, with its risks and emotional demands. At times she may be afraid to love, for she has trouble letting go in the face of uncontrollable feeling without the guarantee of just return.
Saturn, her ruling planet, universally ensures the Capricorn woman of early struggles in love but also just about guarantees rewards for loving acts. Love under the influence of Saturn may be difficult but will eventually turn out to be binding and true.
