The water-bearing sea goats have a unique set of personality traits that come from an unusual melange of the elements of earth and air. This AstrologyBay article discusses the relationship compatibility of Capricorn-Aquarius cusps with other signs in the zodiac chart.
The Power of Being a Capricorn-Aquarius
Both, the renowned poet of his time, Lord Byron, and the co-founder of Microsoft, Paul Allen, belong to the Capricorn-Aquarius cusp sign. One was a poet, popularly known as the leading figure of Romanticism, while the other is a philanthropist and a substantial name in the field of software entrepreneurship. We cite these examples to highlight the multitalented aspect of these cusps, who can excel in both scientific and creative endeavors.
That was about their career prospects, but what is the scenario when it comes to the potential relationship prospects? Irrespective of how good Capricorn-Aquarius cusps are in their jobs, they are not that great when it comes to managing their personal relationships. No, this does not imply that they are incompatible or inconsiderate. Ironically, they make great friends and love to socialize. They know how to be the life of a party and are born with the gift of entertainment. Then what exactly is the reason that they don’t score that well in love compatibility?
If you go through the traits of Capricorn-Aquarius cusps, you would know that they are highly determined and eccentrically creative individuals, who are born with the objective to make this world a better place. Their highly vivid imagination and vision becomes a source of their creativity, with which they wish to create marvels in this world. At times, they fail to sort of strike a balance between reality and dreams, and are put off by people who fail to share their degree of passion, determination, and discipline. This is what makes choosing the best partners for them a tricky task.
Best Love Matches for Capricorn-Aquarius Cusp
The characteristics that we need in the ideal suitors for the men and women belonging to this cusp, are understanding, supportiveness, creativeness, and a somewhat-disciplined sense of eccentricity. Also, intellectualism plays a crucial role in the failure/success of their relationships, so that is also a must. The following signs, according to us, fulfill these criteria perfectly … well, almost.
Libra (♎) the Air Sign
Libra is the peacemaker of the zodiac chart, and those belonging to this sign are very much capable of weighing the pros and cons of two extreme situations, and balancing two conflicting elements at the same level. Why we consider Librans to be a good prospect for our mysterious cusps is because they will somehow adapt to these cuspians and attain a balance, as they are very caring and careful lovers. Librans also master the art of diplomacy and are avid strategists, conveying some of the most problematic messages in a subtle manner. This trait of theirs will help handle the lack of ability in Capricorn-Aquarian cusps to not receive criticism and disapproval sportingly, or not to be able to see a reason behind criticism.
Librans are governed by the air element, which means that like our half-air Capriquarius, they too are driven by intellectual talks and undertakings. With certain aspects kept in check, like the tendency of Librans to get a bit manipulative and critical at times, we see a great relationship compatibility between these two signs. This is because when it comes to the ones they love, Librans will quickly change the composition to bring a harmonic balance in the union.

Pisces (♓) the Water Sign
Being the last sign of the zodiac chart, Pisces tends to absorb and understand all the traits of the signs that come before it. Aquarius and Capricorn precede Pisces immediately; therefore, those belonging to this sign will establish a sense of understanding with these cuspians, sooner or later.
Yes, there will be problems that will arise when our cuspians will be in their overcritical and harsh mode, mainly because Pisces is the most sensitive signs of all. However, it is also one of the most compassionate, understanding, and selfless signs. Therefore, if a Pisces considers the one belonging to this cusp sign as ‘the one’, this male or female will adapt itself perfectly to the needs of his/her love. With some adjustments, Pisceans can give Capricorn-Aquarius the support and inspiration that they need. They add to their creative instinct because they are quite creative and vivid themselves, and also love to be a part of a fantasy-oriented world. In other words, a Piscean can provide colors to the imagination of a Capricorn-Aquarius.

Cancer (♋) the Water Sign
This would be the best pick, especially when the seeker of a relationship is a Capricorn-Aquarius woman. Cancer men are perhaps the best men to handle women who are headstrong. Cancerians are quite peace-loving in nature. They are also very hardworking and determined to accumulate the best of luxuries and necessities to make a cozy shell for themselves and their loved ones. So, they will invariably understand the point of view of their cusp mate, especially when it comes to their orientation towards goals, hard work, and discipline.
Crabs are also very understanding and supportive. Therefore, whenever our water-bearing sea goats would dive completely into their vision and goals, their partner (although will feel a little avoided) will understand and wait for their love to come back into their arms and comfort them off their tiredness. Being a water sign and ruled by the Moon, Cancerians can become a little moody, but as long as their partner, which in this case is the Capriquarius, is loyal (which this cusp is) they will find a way to overcome whatever comes their way.

Gemini (♊) the Air Sign
A team of a Capricorn-Aquarian cusp and a Gemini has all the potential to be the best entertainers in a social gathering. Also, both are avid dreamers and have a peculiarly curious mind. They will not only connect because of their shared inclination to intellectualism, but also because they both are social animals. This combo is definitely up for a fab start.
Capriquarians are also inclined towards experimenting and finding out their own paths, just like the twins. Also, they both have the shared sense of eccentricity and rebelliousness in them. The only problem that we see arising in this pair is the tendency of the twins to shift from one thought to another, thereby losing focus and discipline. This may bother our disciplined and somewhat traditional cuspian to quite a great extent. This can be kept in check with the versatility and vividity that these cusps can offer the twins. With that aspect kept in check, they are truly made for each other.

Virgo (♍) the Earth Sign
What brings these two signs together is their need to serve mankind. Both are true humanitarians at heart and are born to help others get their due share of freedom and rights. Like our cuspians, even those belonging to the Virgo symbol are quite the disciplinarians. Both appreciate the need for goal achievement, following one’s passion, having a disciplined approach, valuing tradition and culture, and making this world a better place for themselves and others.
Another thing that works great for their compatibility is the fact that both these signs can be practical and emotional at the same time. Meaning, they can easily switch from being practical and stern for work, and emotional and caring when it comes to love. Not all have the capability to switch like that. Also, the Virgin shares the tendency of these cuspians to be critical at times, but this sign does it in a way that inspires the water-bearing sea goats to thrive furthermore in their endeavor. This is what makes Virgo a great match for Capricorn-Aquarius cusps. Yes, they will have their share of conflicts and creative differences, but Virgos can be a great inspiration for these cuspians in their path to making dreams come into reality.
Our rating: ★★★☆☆
All that Capricorn-Aquarius individuals need is appreciation for their eccentricity. While some signs may want all the applauds for themselves, those mentioned in this list are among those who wouldn’t mind being the man or woman behind the success of their love, as long as they get some appreciation in return.
