Virgo and Capricorn are both Earth signs, so the understanding of each other is fairly easy. Both Capricorns and Virgos strive very hard to be successful in their own ways and aren’t put off by each other’s tendency to bury themselves in a goal or project. They both also tend to lean towards dry/sarcastic senses of humor, and they prefer to communicate clearly about issues when they arise. Underneath both of their reserved, cool exteriors are people who are goofy, dedicated, and supportive of each other. Both signs are patient and unwilling to give up on each other when things are rough, which gives them both plenty of time to learn and understand each other on a deep level.
Another Earth sign match, which is truly no surprise. Similar to Virgo, Taurus has a grounded presence that Capricorn respects, as well as exhibits themselves. Taurus signs are a little more home-oriented than Capricorn signs, but this works well for them all the same. Taurus has a way of showing Capricorns how to take care of themselves, whereas Capricorns can help Taurus how to fully achieve their goals without letting their emotions get in the way. They speak each other’s language, and even if they don’t always see eye to eye, it’s much more likely than can work things out at the end of the day.
At first glance, this can seem like an odd match, but these two have what the other needs. Pisces does an exceptional job of accessing their vulnerable side and creating a safe space for others to do the same. They can sense when something is amiss and have the capability to point out when the relationship isn’t as healthy as it should be. Capricorns benefit from having a person they can confide their emotions in- because they do have feelings, they just often are unsure how to unpack them. On Capricorn’s end, they help scattered Pisces with their ideas and aspirations and provide a safe, secure place to rest.
Scorpio signs are intriguing to most of the zodiac realm, and Capricorns are no exception. Both signs don’t like to play games and prefer to cut straight to the heart of the matter- which they appreciate and admire about each other. Scorpio’s passion and emotional depth don’t deter Capricorns- in fact, they enjoy it. Scorpios aren’t intimidated by Capricorn’s need for personal space or determination- they prefer it. These two are also incredibly loyal, dedicated partners, so the match works exceptionally well.
Despite exhibiting some distinct differences, these two get along really well! Both are ruled by the planet Saturn, which causes them to share some traits, though how they manifest them are different. Aquarians are a little more free-form with their thoughts and actions, whereas Capricorns can be rooted pretty heavily into what they know- but this doesn’t phase them much. These two often find they communicate with ease, and are open to hearing each other’s points-of-view. They feel like they are talking with an equal and they balance each other out well. As a bonus, both signs aren’t afraid to cut loose and have a good time to get out of their own heads.
Another neighboring sign that couldn’t look more different from the outside yet shares quite a few admirable qualities! Both signs are blunt and don’t feel the need to step lightly around the other, which makes conversations easier to work through. Sagittarius signs are often always on the move, which can confuse Capricorns at times, whereas Sagittarius may give Capricorn a rough time about working too hard. However, neither really feels like they are nagging each other, and both are often surprised by each other. Sagittarius is usually shocked by how excited and animated Capricorn can get when they are invested in something, and Capricorn is shocked at how Sagittarius has pretty heavy thoughts and ideas they want to discuss with someone else.
Truthfully, no one knows you better than yourself, so dating someone with the same sun sign as you can feel very familiar. There is a sense of understanding that forms between the two which they admire. Neither person criticizes their driven work ethic or their reserved nature, and it makes perfect sense. However, there can be too much of a good thing. Two Capricorns may be so focused on their own endeavors that they don’t really check in on the relationship- without some kind of differing balance, they tend to get stuck in their own worlds. If they are committed to checking in then it can work, but it does take a conscious effort.
This sign can truly be a hit or miss. If we are talking business partners, these two are a match made in heaven. Leos and Capricorns both strive to be the best at what they do, and want to be acknowledged for their hard work. In this way, they understand each other well. Both share some interesting core values of working hard and refusing to give in. However, the differences can’t be ignored. Leos are more over-the-top and aren’t ashamed of who they are, which is admirable but can be a bit overwhelming for Capricorns. Capricorns can often hold a cool exterior, which can ruffle Leo’s feathers a bit depending on the situation. They might be afraid they can’t fully be themselves with the other. If they can overcome miscommunications and allow themselves space to be who they are, they honestly will be unstoppable in achieving success.
Cancer and Capricorn signs are exactly 180 degrees on the zodiac wheel- they certainly are an opposites attract combination. Cancer and Capricorn are often touted as the parents of the zodiac since both are grounded signs that crave stability. These two often want the same things, but go about them in very different ways which can cause serious tension. Cancers are exceptionally expressive with their love and emotions, which can feel suffocating to Capricorns at times. Capricorns can be more focused on providing means for stability rather than resting in it, which frustrates Cancers to no end. They often spend more time trying to change each other than fully accepting who they are. If they can communicate what they truly need and can give what is asked, there is a chance it can work- but it takes quite a bit of effort.
This pairing gets a bad rep- and it makes sense, given how different they seem to view the world. Gemini signs can be a bit flighty and always on the move, and constantly looking at the world in fresh new ways. Capricorns are reliable, determined, and like to remain rooted in what they know (because they’ve taken the careful time to determine it’s best). The reality is that these two do benefit from things the other has. Geminis have a million ideas but little follow-through, which Capricorn can help with. Capricorns can be stubborn and stuck in their own bubble, and Geminis can introduce them to so much more. However, on an emotional level things can be tricky. Both signs aren’t prone to being so open emotionally and usually depend on someone else to pull it out of them. There are plenty of differences, but these two do have the potential to make it work if they are all in- they just have to decide it’s worth it first.
These two can’t see eye-to-eye on much. Capricorns may appreciate Aries go-getter attitude, but that’s about it. Capricorns can often be put off by Aries’ impulsive, erratic behavior. Aries doesn’t get why Capricorn is such a stick in the mud. Both have their moments, but unless it’s about a shared goal or activity, they don’t have much to talk about. Both signs have a stubborn streak, and given how differently they approach life it’s obvious one would need to bend to the other, which doesn’t go over well with either sign. This match isn’t impossible but is far from easy.
Libra and Capricorns may want the best for each other, but this couple takes a lot of work to have a chance of success. While both have certain qualities the other can benefit from (Libras and their social connections, Capricorns and their desire to provide), it usually isn’t enough to hold them together. Emotionally, Libras aren’t prone to communicating when something is bothering them, which can be frustrating for Capricorns. Capricorns can have trouble understanding where Libras are coming from, which hurts Libra’s feelings and makes them feel unappreciated. Libra’s tend to be easily hurt by Capricorn’s blunt attitude, and Libra is too afraid to offend Capricorn by prying too deep into their emotions. They are both dedicated partners who have no trouble trusting each other, but that’s the only thing they have going for them.
