When she is in love, the Capricorn Woman seems to be an angel at large, a temptress in bed, a secure empress in company (she rules the turf); she may also for a time be a mirror image of her mate.
She is usually gifted with the powers of persuasion, anticipation, and old-fashioned courtesy toward her lover. She is prepared to smooth the way for gracious living and loving. She may make original, craftsy, funny items for her man's desk, to remind him of her. She may design their bedroom for comfort and passion. She will certainly learn to cook all his favorite dishes and serve them with elegance.
She will probably visit his mother to find out what pleased him as a baby, and she may try to recreate the past through stimuli associated with earlier pleasures. If her man loved breast-feeding, for example, she will probably dress to enhance her bosom. If he is a leg man, she may buy slit skirts. 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. As a lover, she combines the practical with the romantic.
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 is good at creating an ambience of safety and privacy to shelter her and her man. She is mindful of important details like having his favorite records and his preferred brand of liquor available and keeping a supply of logs for the fireplace. She may even buy a special cushion just for him. She may spend lots of time fantasizing about their dream house, and she may end up designing it herself. But don't look for her to clean the corners and crevices meticulously; she will not be interested.
She is a sensualist for whom being in love may provide the first opportunity to explore this tendency. Earlier she may have denied herself sensuous pleasures that may now sneak up on her and demand overtime. In love, she is glad to oblige.
She often becomes a gourmet cook and popular hostess. She basks in the attention of socially prominent people, and she wants to make her man proud of her. The shadow cast by her longing to be accepted, especially by men, is not likely to be totally erased.
There seem to be two main Capricorn reactions to partying and socializing. One type of Capricorn lady adores parties and can barely tolerate being alone. 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. The other type goes to the opposite extreme. She prefers to ignore invitations and would rather stay home reading quiedy by her husband's knee. She wants home to be an inviolable oasis from the cares of the world, and she may resent anything she construes as an interference. Parties she may rank as a major nuisance, second only to her husband's overnight travels away from home.
As long as the merger works, the Capricorn Woman is the most loyal, steadfast, devoted, reliable lover on earth. No man could hope for a woman more in love. She* has stars in her eyes and a rainbow painted on the bedroom ceiling in his favorite fluorescent colors. Musk and perfume fill the air, spring is always around the corner, the plants learn to sing back to her, the kitchen hums with secret self-indulgent delights, and the bed creaks with insistent regularity. She looks smashing, feels great, is bright-eyed with the promise of a never-ending, happily shared future.
If the merger fails, she withdraws her deposit and demands her investment back, with interest. This is a sad and bitter time indeed, as the cold winds of winter chill the affected hearts. But for Capricorn especially, there are many, many tomorrows!
