Capricorn and Aries Compatibility

All the best myths have a hero, and all the best myths have a wise old sage, too. In this star sign compatibility match, hero and sage fall in love – and how does the story end? Often, surprisingly well. Capricorn and Aries compatibility can and does work, because these two signs have more in common than you might think at first glance.

We all know Aries as a born leader. Male or female, of any age, Aries has to be in charge, dominant (domineering, even) and quite clearly running the show. Enter, stage left, quiet, unassuming Capricorn. No question who’s going to rule the roost here, right? Wrong. Despite the noise and the show and the natural assertiveness of Aries, Capricorn compatibility is all about maturity. Capricorn is ruled by Saturn, the planet of wisdom, and Capricorns of both sexes and all ages tend to exude an air of quiet authority that most signs find hard to usurp. Even Aries. Think of Aries as the young upstart in business, full of passion, enthusiasm and ideas – but Capricorn is the seasoned CEO, been there, done that, seen it all. Capricorn and Aries compatibility works because, just for once, Aries doesn’t get it all Aries’ own way.

On a day to day basis, this partnership can achieve a great deal in terms of both partners’ life goals. Both signs are cardinal, fired up to achieve, ambitious and hard working. Both are determined and resourceful – essentially, they want very similar things from life. There is a shared passion here too, because despite Capricorn’s somewhat dour reputation, the old goat enjoys sex as much as the next person, and might even show over-excited Aries a new trick or too. Capricorn and Aries compatibility is born of mutual respect, when it works at its best. Capricorn is amused by Aries’ exuberance and fire, while Aries admires Capricorn’s calm demeanour and inner steel.

In return for dispensing wisdom to help give solid ground to Aries’ enthusiasm, Capricorn receives a welcome dose of Arian warmth and fire, warming up their hearts and sparking a new lease of life. It’s not always plain sailing for Capricorn and Aries compatibility, though, as it does depend on both partners making allowances for the other. The slightly risky, manic and excitable Aries energy can give stubborn Capricorns a nervous breakdown, while Capricorn’s insistence on careful, practical, prudent thought can bore Aries to tears. Astrology compatibility cannot tell from star signs alone which way the relationship will go, but there is definitely potential.

The Capricorn-Aries relationship is definitely a strong one in business, or as a friendship, where teamwork between these two can be absolutely unbeatable. As a love match, Capricorn and Aries compatibility works at its absolute best when there is quite an age gap between the partners. You might think that the Capricorn partner should be the eldest, but actually it works equally well with a younger Capricorn and older Aries, although the central roles of hero and sage will remain the same. In mythology, the hero cannot do without the sage, but the sage can manage pretty well without the hero. It’s this Capricorn attitude of slight coolness, aloofness even, which helps them to cope with the fiery outbursts of Aries – when necessary, Capricorn will just shut down, walk away and come back later when Aries has burnt themselves and their tantrum out.
