Determining the relationship compatibility between a Capricorn man and an Aquarius woman needs quite a bit of evaluation, as both these individuals are highly individualistic. If you share one of the two sides, perhaps AstrologyBay can help you get a clearer picture of where this union is heading.
The Compatibility Dilemma (?)
Is it possible for air to be glued to earth, or for earth to be able to hold air down to its level? Most definitely not! The Capricorn man (♑) belongs to the grounded earth sign with cardinal qualities, while the Aquarius woman (♒) belongs to a freedom-driven air sign with fixed traits. Their union is highly unusual, and may or may not work out, depending upon the level of sheer determination and acceptance for each other’s individuality.
You may call it dilemma, confusion, uncertainty, or something else, but this noun remains a prefix of your relationship inevitably, especially when the two of you are completely different people. You may say that differences are what keep you glued to each other, and that being with someone who is exactly like you may turn out to be a boring and unexciting relationship. We totally agree with you; we acknowledge the fact that opposites do attract, but seriously, is it always for the better?
When it comes to a relationship between a Capricorn man and an Aquarius woman, ascertaining whether their union will hit the altar or the rocks is quite hard. If you’re thinking of long-term companionship and a happily ever after, understand that things won’t be as easygoing as they are in the “honeymoon phase.” While you may avert your eyes saying that this is anyway the case with all relationships, the following section will give you a peek into what it is for these two signs to be with each other.
Overview of the Characteristics of a Capricorn Man and an Aquarius Woman
Beginning with the Capricorn man, he is the most ambitious among his other peers, constantly evaluating and tapping opportunities in his life that will eventually take him to the abundant green pastures. He is not someone who will take a shortcut to success, but will work hard for it, climbing up the mountain of success bit by bit, with patience, perseverance, and clarity in his head in terms of the glory that awaits for him post all this labor. When it comes to his family and love life, he is a completely conservative guy, whose life revolves around doing his best to provide in abundance for his family. Potentially, he is likely to be a completely mama’s boy who will give preference to his family’s approval and social image rather than be driven by emotions and love. Not that he’s not an emotional person, but all his sensitivity and feelings are buried deep within his cold and rigid outer mask.
The Aquarius woman, on the other hand, is quite an outgoing person, and if we may say, is somewhat allergic to the conventional way of living. She isn’t afraid to let the world know that she is eccentric and doesn’t give a fish about what people think of her. A true humanitarian at heart, she loves to make friends (a lot of them) coming from different walks of life. She is quite an independent female and highly focused when it comes to her work; only, it should be intriguing enough to catch her attention for a bloody good time! She is intelligent and somewhat intellectual, always traveling from one point to another to explore more around her space. She isn’t naive or gullible, but can make you run for your life if you mess with her! She can be quite blunt with her words. Her intuitive instincts help her greatly to set up a guard against those who are on the verge of harming or betraying her.
What Happens When They Date?
Why are you so reserved? I’ll help you explore the chilled side of life.
Great! And I can teach you to be a little more grounded.
The attraction is pretty instant, courtesy the totally different personalities that these two share, keeping each other intrigued because of being so alien to each other. While the Capricorn man will be intrigued by her independence, intelligence, clarity, and expressiveness, the Aqua female will admire him for his ambitiousness, clarity, and planning abilities, as she never plans much for herself. They help each other to see a different side of life, introducing one another to a new world altogether.
What’s in Him that Works for Her
His social skills are something that will attract her instantly towards him. After all, where else would you find a man who carries himself with such calmness and poise in a party where other men are totally busy getting sloshed and out of control! While others are checking girls out, he would be busy in the company of elites and building networks that will potentially help him climb the ladder. Or, on the other hand, he will be sitting in a corner with his drink, doing mental calculations about his moves-to-do that will take him ahead towards his goal. His ultimate goal is to become powerful and successful, and this focus and perseverance, that he has, makes the Aquarius woman feel drawn like a magnet towards him, as she too shares these business-oriented qualities.
Another thing that makes cupid strike the arrow is his intelligence and hardworking ability. She herself shares these traits with him. He is also a very caring and protective lover, even though not quite expressive in his feelings. Initially, his thoughtful and intelligent outlook of life, and this whole mixture of differences and similarities is what pokes her to fall in love with him. He helps her become a little grounded and patient, and teaches her to plan and evaluate things before taking or leaving them. He brings in a different dimension to her personality, which she likes initially.
What’s in Her that Works for Him
Her eccentricity can grab anybody’s attention on the planet, including our career-oriented goat! Most likely, it is she who walks up to him and starts a greeting that takes it all to the dating level. He likes her lively, inquisitive, and intelligent nature. She knows what she is talking about and does not beat around the bush. She also has this mysticism revolving around her, and a sense of seductiveness in the way she carries herself.
She is very easy to be friends with, but to go beyond the friendship is a challenging task. She is hard to get, a challenge that intrigues the Capricorn man all the more. She is also a true humanitarian, who would not hesitate to be involved in a cause that uplifts the oppressed and needy, something that he too would be quite interested in. Her independence and intuitiveness adds to her mystical aura. Her friendly and helpful nature, along with her wide range of contacts from all walks of life, drives him to give this relationship a shot. She also shows him a different way to approach the responsibilities of life, which initially, seems enthralling to him.
What Happens When They Date for Long?
Why can’t you be a little conservative?
Conservative? Excuse me, have you met me?
Turns out that of the things that seemed attractive initially, some of them took shape of huge issues that are almost impossible to resolve because both these people are stubborn and individualistic. Bottom line is that they are completely different individuals, and the outlook of one can hamper the other’s. The following points enumerate on this statement.
Her Issues With Him
He is controlling, a trait of his that smothers her in the long run, because to her, freedom and independence are a priority in life. She cannot be dominated, or asked to hold herself back when it is in her nature to be out there. Another thing that gets on her nerves is his tendency to get into this moody and depressive phase where he needs constant boosting and support. Not that she minds giving it to him, but it seems to be a recurring cycle where he becomes a completely different person, a person she fails to associate with.
He is also highly conscious of his social image, which means, no public display of affection, no excessive friendliness with new people, no going against the conventional norms, and in short, no being the Aquarius female that you are! Not that our Capri guy is a Hitler of some sort, but he functions and thinks quite conventionally than her. Another great obstacle is the intimacy quotient. He is not a charmer when it comes to romance, neither is he the experimenting sort in bed. Although he is great and well versed with the art of lovemaking, being the controller that he generally is, it’s not that he will do something unconventional or out-of-the-box to make things more interesting. He finds it hard to express his inner feelings, which can sort of disappoint her at times.
Every woman wishes for a family-oriented guy, but he is all about his family! Issues arise when she fails to impress his family, especially his mother. For him, it is a must that the girl he is with gets along with his family and social circle. Any sort of disapproval and lack of interest to change from his Aqua girl may take the relationship down the drain. He would always support his family over his love in such matters. To keep things under control, or to avoid the blunt words of the Aqua girl, he might also lie to her. But she being intuitive, easily catches him.
His Issues With Her
He must have smelled the coffee brewing, but thought that he would be able to control it in time; well, he was wrong! He knew she was independent, but he thought he could ground her to being a home and family-oriented partner, just like he is. She is not the type who could see herself being a homemaker. She needs to be involved in a bigger cause, meeting new and intellectual people, exploring her options around … basically, she is quirky and unpredictable, something he finds unacceptable in his partner. Although she encourages him to achieve his goals, her approach differs totally from his. She is a traveler and will not think twice before moving from one place to another to end the monotony of her life. On the other hand, he is highly resistant to changing his path of life, and will move only if it seems an indispensable thing to do.
Another area of conflict arises in his rate of moving things forward. While she is ready to move to the point of intimacy, he procrastinates the deed till she passes all his criteria. Her impulsiveness may be too much for him to handle. As mentioned earlier, she is also a non-conformist, and likely to oppose most of the suggestions he presents in front of her to make things better. Not that she doesn’t care for him, but being an air sign, you cannot pin her down.
Living together may arise minor conflicts that could accumulate and turn into major drifters. An example would be, he would expect a clean and well-arranged household, with things properly placed at the spot where they belong. She, on the other hand, will focus on enjoying the moment and planning outings, rather than worrying about these petty issues of the household. She is not a housekeeper in any way, period! Even when it comes to being a part of the social outings, her outgoing and eccentric demeanor in the public might annoy him, because he expects his woman to be a perfect example of poise, delicateness, and social manners.
The Final Compatibility Verdict!
Do we need to say anything more? After all being said, it finally comes down to whether the both of them are willing to let go a major part of their personalities to adjust with another, or just accept each other with what they are made of. The Capricorn man has a lot of intelligence and brains, but lacks the understanding to accept her need for diversity. The Aquarius woman, on the other hand, has the love and zest to make his life interesting, but lacks the docility that he seeks in his partner. Therefore, our final verdict is to proceed with great caution and not-so-great hopes.
Please Note: There is more to compatibility than your zodiac signs. There are a lot many additional factors that rule your birth chart, which is why, it is important to evaluate all the possible determining factors to take a stand on your relationship. The most crucial factor is your willingness to be with each other. If that is what you want, then that is what you’ll get. We strongly believe that love most definitely finds a way through the odds to make things even―always keep that in mind. Good luck!
