This article is for all the lonely Capricorns out there, that are looking for their perfect better half. If you wish to know the Capricorn love match with the other zodiac signs, this article is just for you. We will match Capricorn up with each individual sign in astrology and try to assess their compatibility.
To give you an overview of things, Capricorn is the most compatible with the other signs of the Earth trilogy, namely Taurus and Virgo. It can also work well with the fiery Leo and Sagittarius, the airy Aquarius and with two-thirds of the water trilogy, namely with Pisces and Scorpio. With Gemini, Leo, and other fellow Capricorns it is a case of this way or that, for it can alternate between bliss and hell. A Capricorn love match is extremely complicated and difficult (though definitely possible when true love and compromise enter the picture) with Aries, Cancer and Libra. Now let us move on to the individual matches.
Aries and Capricorn
One can easily see why this is not the best of matches, for one, both the rulers of both the star signs stand for completely different things. While Mars is active, volatile, violent energy, Saturn stands for restraint, discipline, and the ‘think before you leap’ philosophy of life. Both Aries and Capricorn are cardinal signs and both will inevitably make their home a battle ground for supremacy. Granted that while Aries is much more open and vocal about his leadership goals, Capricorn is much more devious and calculating. Aries will not know what hit him in the end and this will definitely, absolutely, positively not go down too well with him. While Aries is irrational and erratic, he will get on the sane, thoughtful, and rational nerves of a Capricorn. Aries will find Capricorn irritatingly slow, infuriatingly silent, and intolerably ‘contained within himself’. Yet, this is not an utter failure, for where there is genuine love and mutual respect, all big issues look really small and small issues always tend to work themselves out.
Taurus and Capricorn
Deep down inside, both know that they are connected with the solid elemental force of ‘earth’. Both invariably have long-term plans and both are disciplined enough to make them come true. While Capricorn is the more covertly proud of the two, both will have some pride related issues to resolve. Both of them only know two ways to solve a problem. Either they will lock their horns and ram into each other like violent beasts or they will throw temper tantrums that are slow to ignite but fast to burn out. However, as Taurus is ruled by Venus (and hence more gentle of the two), it tends to be a little more indulgently tolerant towards Capricorn’s Saturnine austerity and ambition. It also helps Capricorn to know that his fantastic Taurus mate is easy to get around when you can woo him with luxury, dine him out with caviar, and coax into giving in with vintage wine. Both will skimp and save for the bad times and live like kings in the good days, for their essential build ups are very similar.
Gemini and Capricorn
Once again, this Capricorn love match is something that needs detailed study, for how these two can tolerate each other beyond a couple of seconds leaves me completely baffled. Yet this bizarre Mercury Saturn partnership does have a good chance of making it through life and making it well, with lots of better times together than bad. Mercurial Gemini is fast, in words and thought, while Capricorn is touchy with exactly that. Capricorn is slow, steady, and cautious and Gemini invariably throws caution to the winds. Capricorn is the antithesis of easy-going, flirtatious, talkative, and wayward, all the things that make up a Gemini. Though the saying ‘opposites attract’ is the sole reason for them coming together in the first place, the initial glitter and glamor of meeting a new species wears off much sooner than it should. This relationship has a 50/50 chance though, if both really love each other, and are willing to take efforts at understanding their partner and compromising on little things for him.
Cancer and Capricorn
Cancer and Capricorn always remind me of things like ‘gloom and doom’, ‘watery depths’ and ‘end of the world’. I am sorry, but it is just the very first thing that pops up in my mind. Watery Cancer is naturally despondent, melancholy, and nostalgic. Capricorn is naturally pessimistic and sometimes even sadistic. When these two meet, everyday can be another calamity just waiting to befall on them. Yet, Capricorn is smart, sharp, and talented enough at euphemism to get the crab to lighten up a little (that’s fairly easy, it is getting the Cappy to lighten up that’s worse). The crab on the other hand is emotionally demanding (and sometimes clingy) and makes the Cappy feel like heaven. Why you ask, well Cappy always had this hidden insecurity that he is less of something than someone else and nobody wants him (though I can see all you Cappys giving be head shakes of negation, I urge you to own up to yourself if not to me) and his needy crab is suddenly making him feel like Tarzan, the lord of the jungle. Both can connect well if they give each other a fair try for both are essentially similar being, with similar views on money, success, ambition … so on and so forth.
Leo and Capricorn
A Capricorn and Leo love match is like a constant uphill battle of understanding, but as both are the relatively rational and logical signs of the zodiac, they do stand a fair chance together. When Leo is organized, planned, and economically restrained, he is everything a Cappy wants. When the Capricorn is a little sunny, humorous (other than satire and sarcasm) and a little loosened up, he is Leo’s perfect right hand man. The only problem is, both are rarely so and if they are, it really takes them years of practice with each other to be it. Yet, both are good for each other. Leo teaches Capricorn to live a little and helps him know the thought that you can live like a king without having blue blood, by simply living life-like one, by being generous, magnanimous, and kind. Capricorn teaches Leo how to make good plans and get them implemented well, with planning, dedication and effort.
Virgo and Capricorn
Both Virgo and Capricorn are well suited with each other, both in terms of their elemental thought processes and in terms of their capacity to adjust with each other. Both are equally practical, dedicated, and hardworking. Both are ambitious, though in varying degrees, and detailed. Both of them are their own worst critics and hence have a natural sympathy towards this like-mindedness. Both can boost each other’s confidence when the partner is wounded and lost. Both lean toward natural remedies, herbal cures, etc. and both love working out together. Both need each other much more than they let on and this is the most tragic part between them. If they could just voice out, even if in unspoken word, how much the other means to them, their life would be much more of a heaven than it is otherwise. Both complete each other and fill up each other’s secret insecurities.
Libra and Capricorn
This is a doubtful Capricorn love match as they just do not understand each other. While Libra believes in enjoying life, Capricorn believes solely in ambition and work in order to fulfill it. The most common problem in this relationship is that Libra needs plenty of time and Capricorn is too much of a workaholic to provide it. On the other hand, Capricorn invariably finds the Libran pursuits to be too many and too frivolous for Libra to be dedicated and committed to just one of them. Both lose respect for each other quickly, especially when Capricorn cannot understand why Libra is so airy in his pursuits, so frivolous in his interests and so happy-go-lucky, ‘we will see what happens when it does’ about his decision-making. In the mind of the Libra partner, Capricorn will just take up the picture of a stuck-up, self-centered, and selfish individual who is too cold to notice his partner’s needs. It is a shame really, for if these two learn to love each other for who they are, they can teach each other things that were completely beyond them before.
Scorpio and Capricorn
When there is success in the bedroom, it usually tends to spill outside as well. With a Scorpio Capricorn match, life holds many good things. While Scorpio is shrewd, inventive, and passionate, Capricorn is patient, dedicated, and organized. When these two come together how can any project not be a success! Both can work on details and both are dedicated enough to stick it out till the end and this is hence a good partnership. Scorpio is a tad too possessive, but for Capricorn, this just means security and love. Capricorn is a little too aloof and closed, but for Scorpio this just means that he has time of his own to do his own Scorpio thing every once in a while. As both value their independence, this agreement works well for both of them. Both have this non-verbal kind of love that others cannot understand and only the two of them know what the other means to them, despite there being no words said.
Sagittarius and Capricorn
It can be good with Sagittarius only if he puts away all his poison tipped bows of honesty, for Capricorn is more fragile ego wise than he is. On the other hand, for this love match to be successful, Capricorn will have to keep up with Sagittarius’s million pets and even more humanitarian pursuits. Capricorn will have a hard time initially understanding Sagittarius’s gambles and his ‘no worries’ attitude, especially until he is sure that the Sagittarius luck never runs out. On the other hand, Sagittarius will be utterly perplexed with Capricorn’s ‘all work and no play’ attitude towards life and will do him a world of good by urging him to liven up and enjoy life’s party. Sagittarius’s luck and Capricorn’s hard work should take this partnership to successful heights.
Capricorn and Capricorn
Too much of anything is bad for you and too much of Capricorn is truly bad for everyone else in the family. Yet, these too can enjoy what is called a good (you notice I said good and not anything more comparative or superlative) solely because they are so freaking similar. As Capricorn approves of people who are exactly like him, in thought, deeds and words, he is certainly going to approve of his partner. Things are a whole lot simpler with a Capricorn if he empathizes with you, for there will be that many more open conversations, that many more compromises and that much more understanding, all of which are the essential ingredients for a happy love life. The downside of this relationship is that everything will be one notch higher, the silences may last too long, the arguments may be never-ending and the stubbornness can be too fixated. What this relationship culminates into is nothing but a predictive, boring, and routine life … kind of like a rut. So unless you like ruts, this is not the relationship you want. Go for up and down, upheaval and adventure instead, you’ll not regret it.
Aquarius and Capricorn
This union will require conscious efforts from both parties to sustain itself against the erosion of time. Being cardinal makes Capricorn want to rule and dominate things, people and circumstances. On the other hand, the eccentric Aquarius is a born rebel and will rebel against dominance, power, and all status quo. Capricorn is fairly orthodox and dogmatic and will find it hard to cope with Aquarius’s new age ideas. Aquarius will not understand Capricorn’s staunch fixation with ambition for he believes in conquering hurdles as they come rather than aiming to reach somewhere and eliminating all hurdles that land up in the path. Aquarius will do everything that horrifies Capricorn, like jump jobs, follow-up on whims, and take up unconnected projects simultaneously. As Capricorn craves financial security all these are sure to give him a heartburn. Yet, love conquers all and once love sets its roots in this relationship, nothing can really break it.
Pisces and Capricorn
Finally, thank god we’re down to Pisces, I was kind of running out of new vocabulary ideas and adjectives. Anyway, Pisces and Capricorn make a good love match. Pisces needs someone secure (macho) and steady (loyal) and this is all that Capricorn is. Capricorn needs someone affectionate (sensual) and flexible (who will not oppose him) and this is all Pisces is. Pisces will follow Capricorn just as long as he proves himself to be worthy of a fan following and not a minute more nor less. Pisces is relatively fickle that way. Capricorn always performs better when he has an adoring someone looking up to him and so Pisces works well for him. These two are compatible emotionally, physically, as well as spiritually and that is important. For with a Pisces, if you cannot be a part of her dream world, you cannot be a part of anything. They support each other in all their endeavors and each usually has what the other lacks in this partnership. Pisces and Capricorn are the perfect supportive pair for they really do tend to understand and accept each other as they are.
I hope my article has helped you delve deeper in your relationships. No two star signs are doomed from the start, for if there is effort put into any relationship, the relationship is sure to float. So if you happen to be in a relationship that does not rate as a good Capricorn love match, I urge you to laugh it all off, for nothing in astrology binds true love. There is not a single astrologer in the world who will tell you to end a relationship, because it is not your love match, he will just highlight the pitfalls and problems that you may face in the future. Be prepared to face them and take them on so that you can find the solutions. To all my Capricorn friends, I wish you a happy partner hunting phase. Hope you find that the mate you choose is your perfect match.
