Capricorn and Aries
Capricorn and Aries together make a very, very difficult relationship. Their personalities are too different to complement each other in a harmonic way. Aries acts on impulse without planning, while Capricorn plans endlessly before taking a step. Aries will not endure the constant criticism from Capricorn. Aries finds Capricorn’s tone too authoritative. Capricorn, on the other hand, will have great difficulty supporting the way in which Aries manages its life, which Capricorn finds foolish.
Capricorn and Taurus
Capricorn and Taurus are two earth signs that complement each other in an excellent way. They will enjoy this relationship greatly because they will do it the way they like it: taking it step by step, planning each movement, perfecting what works, rejoicing with a movie at home, and reaching the top triumphant. Everything is in their favor to build a stable relationship.
Capricorn and Gemini
Capricorn and Gemini are truly not made for each other. Capricorn will live criticizing Gemini for its lack of concentration and for constantly changing its opinions. Gemini, on the other hand, will quickly tire of Capricorn’s mental rigidity. Gemini will get tired of the fact that it sees no possibility of enjoying life to the fullest with such a partner. With work and a lot of love, it may work out.
Capricorn and Cancer

There are no real problems in this relationship.
Capricorn and Leo
The selfishness of each one will be revealed in a relationship between Capricorn and Leo. They each want to have total control of everything that surrounds them. They each want to be the first in the relationship. They each think they know the best ways to address various issues. In the end, Leo and Capricorn will just compete and argue over who has the upper hand in the relationship.
Capricorn and Virgo
Capricorn and Virgo will form an excellent relationship. Just be careful not to fall too deeply into a suffocating rut. Both Virgo and Capricorn find it difficult to actively enjoy life. They should help each other in this aspect. As for the rest, smooth sailing.
Capricorn and Libra
Capricorn and Libra understand each other wonderfully on an intellectual level. In that sense, they complement each other very well and they will be great companions. The problem is that Capricorn does not tolerate the ups and downs in Libra’s life, which are due to Libra constantly doubting about which action to take.
Capricorn and Scorpio
Capricorn and Scorpio can make an appropriate match. Scorpio’s intuition combines with the depth with which Capricorn analyzes situations, and they will have many great moments discovering things they never knew about themselves and the world around them. They should be careful not to isolate themselves from the world in an extreme way.
Capricorn and Sagittarius
In the beginning of the relationship, Capricorn will be fascinated with Sagittarius due to the free and cheerful way in which Sagittarius leads their life. Sagittarius will find in Capricorn help with daily planning and material support.

Capricorn and Aquarius
Capricorn and Aquarius will fascinate each other in the beginning, but they will hardly reach a safe haven in this relationship. Capricorn and Aquarius are too different in their natures. They will have confrontations every time that one expects the other to act in a way that is contrary to their nature. With a lot of love, maybe they will make it.
Capricorn and Pisces
Capricorn will offer Pisces an extraordinary world because, from the beginning, Capricorn will take care of solving all problems, of foreseeing possible conflicts, and of sustaining the home. Pisces will feel that it found the love of its life and will continuously shower Capricorn with lavish pampering and caresses. But Pisces must learn to tolerate Capricorn’s frequent moments of emotional coldness.
Capricorn in Love and Passion
Some Capricorns are very traditional regarding relationships. These types wish to be formally introduced before asking someone out. If they really like someone, they will invite them to dinner at a good restaurant to make the best impression.

Capricorn’s cycle of neverending work and its need to succeed is represented in its Tarot card, The Devil. This Tarot card often pictures Pan, the half-man/half-goat nature god, reigning over a dark and fiery hell. Capricorn’s constant need to get to the top -- no matter what -- can often make this sign feel like a victim of circumstances. Much like the Mountain Goat’s tireless and eternal work ethic, The Devil is about feeling trapped or stuck and creating our own personal hell.
