I agree with bluwatermumma, as a Cap women I am driven, focussed and enjoy creating my own security. I value education and tradition, enjoying evolving and being the best me I can be, money is a by-product of this type of behavior because I will get it done and dusted no matter what; and enjoy the satisfaction of doing so (the journey just results in money, it is not my driver, security is).
I was a lot more serious when I was younger and now am enjoying the fun parts of letting go of my control (37), I did not even drink alcohol until I was 30. I am well above average in all areas; and I work hard to make sure that is the case. A very A type personality and in mannerisms, I am the rock of my family; give unyielding love and support to friends (in very practical ways).
I am not the women you come to for a hug and three days of comfort eating, I am the women who will hug you, calm you and take your hand to walk on the beach, and start making a plan with you to action as soon as your tears are dry.
That is how I demonstrate love and affection, my friends call me the dream maker, because I inspire them to aim high, and work diligently to meet their goals. I consider this good love, as their success is my success, and remind them of their inner desires/dreams and the ability to have the life you want.
I adore my family and am rooted to their needs, and am fiercely loyal both in love and life. I am competitive with myself, and am now realizing that I can draw happiness and love from other sources, not just my lover, understanding that loving myself can also fill my quite lonely feeling. I enjoy being alone, and I am also a social connector, strategic, and practical. I find the best part of being a Cap is that we become more well rounded as we age.
I live well; have a penchant for quality, antiques, art and travel, I am extremely fit, healthy and work like a demon and enjoy being social just as much. I don't know the difference between my work and my happiness which tells me I am doing something right. I laugh a lot and have fun all the time, boundless energy and I believe we come into our most physically beautiful phase where is all comes together after age 30, (although I modeled, I was suspicious of men who thought of me as beautiful). We need to be admired for our minds, and character as well as our elegant beauty.
The best partner by far for me are Scorpio men (dated Virgo,and Aquarius all long term r/ships, which is our nature). Scorpio's are equally as driven and respond to my best qualities of loyalty and honestly. We get each other, see eachother, admire and respect eachother, and understand that creating our own dynasties individually and coming together is a powerful aphrodisiac.
The sex is incredible with Scorpio, understanding my conservative proper exterior and nature, and allowing me to flourish privately, he speaks to my inner desires perfectly (Caps have a very private side sexually).
The words I would use to describe me are: mentally tough, driven, intelligent, capable, joyful, confident, loyal, resilient and optimistic
The negative traits I need to remain conscious of and minimize in order to be a happier person are: I am sometimes judgmental, lack emotional reactions ( I feel it, I just control it), self reliant (to the point of making folks feel excluded), intimidating, aloof, intolerant to mistakes.
But Caps love to evolve and get better, so we will listen, make changes, observe and keep aiming to be perfect, which to us is 'perpetual evolving'.
