Capricorn Love Match
Managed and defined by Saturn, the Capricorn in your life may be extremely prone to the view life the same way that Saturn orbits the sun, slowly with one foot in front of the next. They are planners and note takers, depending on the old-time adage, “hope for the best and plan for the worst!” Does this sound like the stuff of boring evening at home planning out the next twenty years? Maybe so, but as you maybe already know, or will hopefully find out, when push comes to shove and when the mud really starts to fly, those plodding flat-footed Capricorn will be right behind your supporting you and struggling to do whatever struggle you find yourself engaged in.
This also translates into a partner that will work tirelessly to makes sure that relationships are worked at. He/she will never just let things go, they will strive to make the partnership that you two are building mean as much to them as any of the other parts of their life that are important to them. They will make time to talk about feelings and will always own up to times when they have been inconsiderate. Note: in the same vein though, make sure that you apologize for any slights that you may have leveled on your Capricorn. These members of this zodiac sign are known for their tyrannical response to injustice or insults.
Your partner may be a bit of a self martyr, and since they value hard work and a “by the bootstraps’ work ethic, you may be in for a bit of finger wagging from time to time. This is a curse and a blessing, since it can become a strain on any relationship to have one partner telling the other where their faults are and how they can become a better person, but it is also a true and caring demonstration of their love. They do truly want for you to become better at what you do, and feel as if anything is possible, if you just work hard enough.
Now for the fun part. Both the terms bacchanalian a saturnalia are derived from aspects of the Capricorn mythological origins. Both of these terms are in reference to a wild abandon that can pervade your normally pragmatic way of life. These expressions of joy can be a double edge sword. Because of the restraint and discipline that you normally show on a day-to-day basis, this localized party time can result in overdoing it a bit! And though usually all that means is that you have a hangover and a few funny stories it can also lead to more sinister path. It can be hard on relationships and sometimes can lead to cheating or other types of infidelities with a partner.
Note: Partners of Capricorn are encouraged to see whether partying is a release from the pressure that their lovers put on themselves or a healthy channeling of stress. Makes sure they are not running from the cage that they have built themselves.
Capricorn can often be afraid of a lot of things. Among these objects of fear can be that of poverty. This can lead to over working and obsession with advancement. It can also mean that they never live in the moment and are always planning and planning and saving. This can be a desperate cycle. It is an important job of a Capricorn’s lover to make sure that they can see the trees and not just the forest. In compensation for some of the hard work of keeping the pessimism and cynicism at bay Capricorn are known to be great lovers. Their relationship to their earth sign means that they can be incredibly sensual and tactile. They enjoy being touch, so touch them and pleasure will ensue.
Best Match for Capricorn
As a star sign ruled by the element of Earth, your safest bet, Capricorn, is probably one of the other two Earth signs, i.e. TAURUS or VIRGO. The favorable 120° – or 4 signs – spacing between Zodiac signs in the same element makes for an especially harmonious relationship and a level of compatibility well above the norm.
Both Taurus and Virgo are good compatibility matches for Capricorn since they share Capricorn’s practical, responsible and materially-oriented approach to life. However, Virgo probably just beats Taurus as the better compatibility choice for Capricorn. Because Capricorn and Virgo are equally diligent and conscientious, they find it relatively easy to cope with each other’s workaholic tendencies.
Really excellent too, in terms of their ability to harmonize with earthy Capricorn, while at the same time helping it to develop more sensitivity, are the Water signs SCORPIO and PISCES, spaced by 60° – or next but one – from Capricorn. Many believe this kind of Earth-Water combination is actually the ideal – and surely it’s no coincidence that a high proportion of successful compatibility matches are between people with birthdays two Zodiac signs apart.
So what about another CAPRICORN as a good compatibility match? On the plus side, you’ll definitely know what makes them tick, since they embody so many aspects of yourself. Especially with a Capricorn of the opposite sex, the chances are you’ll be strongly attracted to their best Capricorn qualities – like their ambitiousness, diligence and great reliability. But because we don’t tend to like our bad points when we see them reflected in somebody else, there will also be things about Capricorn people that you’ll positively hate – most likely their parsimony and workaholism! If so, better take a long hard look at yourself in the mirror!
Worst Match for Capricorn
The truth is, Capricorn, your ideal compatibility match will rarely simply be a clone of yourself (how boring would that be!). But neither, for that matter, should their star sign be too astrologically antagonistic to your own.
For this reason, you should be cautious – in the absence of redeeming features – about folk born under the star signs of ARIES and LIBRA. Because both these signs are at a challenging 90° angle (or 3 sign spacing) from Capricorn, the differences between you may be so vast, the chances are they’ll be too incompatible – and just too much hard work!
Of these two star signs, Libra just qualifies as the worst possible compatibility match for Capricorn. Due to its laid-back outlook and need for constant companionship, Libra may find it harder than most other signs to cope with Capricorn’s unrelenting self-discipline and workaholic lifestyle.
Signs spaced at 150° (or 5 signs) from Capricorn, such as GEMINI, can also present more minor compatibility challenges. However, although traditionally considered to be ‘awkward’, and involving signs in conflicting elements, 150° relationships aren’t necessarily quite as bad as they might appear. Okay, these may not be your first choice, but neither should they be your last. So don’t make the mistake of writing them off as unsuitable – in many cases a love match could work out fine!
Why Opposites Attract
Rather than someone who conflicts with you, Capricorn, what you’re really looking for, from a star sign compatibility point of view, is the kind of person who is able to balance or complement you in some way. For this reason, the sign diametrically opposite your own, i.e. CANCER, can be a great compatibility match for you, Capricorn. Opposite star signs are often magnetically attracted to each other, their strong yin-yang polarity giving them the potential to complete each other like two halves of a perfect whole.
