General Characteristic Of Capricorn
Capricorn is a Cardinal Sign
Capricorn season occurs when Fall ends, and Winter begins. Capricorn's placement as a Cardinal sign means taking the initiative and leading the other zodiacs through the harshest season of the year. This placement also gives Capricorns the toughest and strongest stamina to endure the season, making them stoic but strong.

You may have observed Capricorns never surrender despite the adversity because of their placement as a Cardinal sign. They may fall and stumble, but they always get back up to finish what they started. They like to take the lead, and when no one else will initiate, Capricorns will rise to the occasion.
Capricorn is an Earth Sign
Much like their fellow Earth signs (Virgo and Taurus), Capricorns have a strong sense of grounded reality. They see life in the most practical and pragmatic way, and they seldom, almost never, attach any emotional value to something. They focus on their goals, and they find comfort through material security.
As an Earth sign, Capricorns rule their lives through a series of strict protocols and guided procedures. They never do things on impulse. Instead, they rely on the rules and follow those with faithful devotion. Capricorns stick with what they know. They never deviate from the norm, and they will follow what’s proven and tested.
Capricorn as Ruled by Saturn
Capricorn falls under the governance of Saturn, the planet responsible for time restraint and restrictions. Their placement under Saturn makes Capricorns experience the most grueling pains and toughest experiences. Saturn makes Capricorns experience these difficulties, even at an early age.
That can be the reason why Capricorns rise despite any adversities. They're no strangers with pain and difficulties. They always persevere and thrive in the most challenging situations. You can always observe Capricorns age backward. The more they grow, the more youthful and beautiful they become.
Compatibility With Other Signs
1. Match Made in Heaven
Capricorn and Virgo
Of course, no one will understand Capricorn better than their fellow Earth signs, Virgo, and Taurus. The practicality and realism unique to the Earth signs will peak with Virgo and Capricorn in a relationship. Both signs value pragmatism and logical thinking in everything they do and that's what unites them despite any differences.
Capricorns and Virgos also share the same quality of valuing loyalty and trust in a relationship. With both of them focusing on achieving their goals, it'll be essential for them to have someone by their side after a long and hard day. Capricorns can be a little stricter with something, while Virgos can be a little more practical.
Virgos and Capricorns find pleasure through material security. This shared quality makes them stick together and creates peace and harmony between them. If they shift their focus to achieve something, they can be unstoppable.
Capricorn and Taurus
Taurus also makes a good match with Capricorns. Why? They share the same practicality in life, and they find comfort through material security. Both of them love to surround themselves with these things, such as expensive clothing, luxurious cars, jewelry, and high art.
They also don't like to risk, with Taurus in terms of love and Capricorn in money and career. However, also run the risk of having their relationship go stale and boring. Taurus may find that Capricorns tend to be restrictive and conservative, while Capricorns may see Taurus' indulgence as laziness and unreliability.
If Capricorn will only teach Taurus how to achieve their goals through their routines, and only if Taurus can show Capricorns how to relax a little bit, their relationship will run smoothly. Their relationship will enjoy achieving goals and ambitions in life while learning how to lay back and enjoy the little things.
2. Very Compatible
Capricorn and Capricorn
When two Capricorns join together in a relationship, they can reach greater heights than they can do alone. They can support one another in achieving their goals and ambitions in life; they both know how to do those.
As both Cardinal Earth signs, two Capricorns know how to lead and initiate things. They may be Cardinal signs, but they can follow through with what they started, and they won't be having any hard times completing those. As Earth signs, they find comfort in material security, which means that they love to surround themselves with the fruits of their labors.
They may lack indulgence and excitement in the relationship, but the very essence of Capricorns will push through. They can plan their times to spend together while not forgetting how to be reliable and hardworking at the same time.
Capricorn and Scorpio
The relationship between Capricorn and Scorpio will take time to develop. They'll be cautious at first not to reveal their true selves to each other, but when trust starts to develop, Capricorn and Scorpio will be in for a great relationship.
They differ in that Capricorns tend to get unattached with their emotions, while Scorpios can be very clingy. Also, the objectivity of Capricorns in seeing things contrasts the emotional and intuitive way of Scorpios.
Nevertheless, these Earth sign qualities balance the characteristics of the Water sign Scorpio. Capricorns can be the safe anchor for the Scorpios. On the other hand, Scorpios can show Capricorns how to be show compassion and sympathy. Their team will work based on the complementarity that each of them can offer.
Also, Scorpios and Capricorn's shared beliefs and ideas will unite them in this relationship. There may be some differences, but that cannot outweigh the positive qualities of this relationship.
Capricorn and Pisces
Capricorns and Pisces also have some significant differences that might contradict at surface level, but deep within, they share a special connection that makes them stick to each other. They admire each other, and they have qualities that can be attractive for both of them.
One of the main differences that Pisces and Capricorns have can be the practical and pragmatic point of view of Capricorns against the emotional and intuitive outlook of Pisces. Capricorns tend to be serious and focused on work, while Pisces tends to be receptive, submissive, and dreamy.
These differences will only work if both of them will use their differences towards achieving a common goal. Capricorn can be the team leader while Pisces works as the heart and soul of the initiative. Capricorns can show Pisces more practicality, while Pisces can guide Capricorns to be a little bit compassionate. Both of them also offer depth in the relationship and appreciation of the differences between them.
4. Neutral Relationship
Capricorn and Cancer
Cancer sits at an exact 180 degrees apart from Capricorn, which means they complement one another. One sign's weakness will be the strength of another, and they can help each other achieve their goals and ambitions in life.
Their qualities lie on the opposite ends of the spectrum that they need to meet halfway to make the relationship work. For instance, Cancer needs an emotional connection while Capricorns strive for material stability. Cancers can invest their whole body and soul into something, while Capricorns never attach any emotional value to anything. Capricorn may be too dry for Cancer, while Cancers may be too deep for Capricorns.
These differences complement each other if both Capricorn and Cancer make it work. They share the same commitment and loyalty, which will make the relationship keep going. Capricorn can be the solid anchor for Cancers' emotional turbulence, while Cancer can be Capricorn's guide on swimming through the depths of their emotions.

Capricorn and Sagittarius
Capricorns tend to have a bad footing with Sagittarius, the celestial Archer. In general, Capricorns do not make a good match with the Fire signs because of their polarities and disparities in life.
For instance, Sagittarius focuses more on “play” while Capricorns on “work.” Sagittarius often jumps right off the bat and thinks about the consequences later. Capricorns, in contrast, would calculate everything first and consider every possibility. Sagittarius does not have a definite plan on achieving something, while Capricorns have a manual.
Their differences may not be significant to be a source of significant conflict, but they still need to work those out. If there’s one thing that’ll make their relationship stronger, that’d be their capability to look towards a goal and achieve it. They also share the same quality of resolving any conflict that comes their way.
I actually wrote an article about Capricorn and Sagittarius compatibility, something you might be interested in.
Capricorn and Aquarius
Capricorns also seem to form a bad match with the Air signs. Aquarius, in particular, makes an interesting match with Capricorns. It's either a make or break and the decision will be based on the two of them.
Capricorns value practicality and pragmatism in solving real-life problems. On the other hand, Aquarius triumphs over their ingenuity and capability to think of revolutionary and progressive ideas. They may shift their focus on things outside the relationship, such as friends and career, but seldom on each other. They need to find common ground to make the relationship work.
Despite the problems they may encounter, Capricorn and Aquarius share the same passion for their work and careers. They have the promise of bringing out the best in each other while making an effective team capable of accomplishing anything.

6. Very Incompatible
Capricorn and Gemini
You can only describe the relationship between a Gemini and Capricorn as complicated and difficult. If Capricorns find it hard to follow Aquarius, they might surrender with Geminis.
Like Aquarius, Gemini loves to establish some intellectual connection and mental rapport. They often get lost with their thoughts that they seem to be distant and aloof. Geminis rely on their wits and intelligence to move through life. These qualities contrast the way Capricorns govern their lives. Capricorns like to stick to the rule and not deviate from the norm.
This relationship has a promise to work if Gemini and Capricorn will focus on their loyalty with each other. But if these differences rise to the surface, everything will go down in this relationship. Capricorns can be too dull and monotonous for Geminis, while Geminis can be aloof and distant for the Capricorn.
Capricorn and Leo
Capricorns will find it even harder to be with a Leo. Domineering, proud, egoistic, and extravagant, Leos may be too much for the workaholic Capricorn. The combination of Leo and Capricorn is one extreme match.. Leos will also find it challenging to keep in pace with the rigid structure governing the loves of Capricorns.
Devoid of any emotional attachments, Capricorns tend to focus more on their work and their careers. Too much focus on these goals and ambitions makes Capricorns workaholic, challenging for the extravagant Leo. Leos know how to indulge and give themselves pleasure, while Capricorns seldom do so. They also differ in their tastes in music, art, literature, science, and politics.
If there's one thing that'll make this relationship work, that'll be their shared quality of accomplishing anything that's in front of them. These signs also value loyalty in a relationship, so that's something they can start with.
7. Clash of Signs
Capricorn and Aries
If Capricorn and Sagittarius can be complicated, Capricorn and Aries will be disastrous. Their differences will be too much for each other to handle, and they’re better separated from each other.
For instance, Aries loves its independence and freedom so much. They also jump into a situation without considering the consequences of their actions. These qualities may sound chaotic and unorganized to the structured Capricorn. Capricorns will take all their time considering the possible scenarios that might happen after.
Also, Aries may get suffocated by the structure and norm of Capricorns. Aries hates it when someone tells them what to do. As much as possible, they will maintain their freedom to do the things they want to do. Capricorns, on the other hand, seems to undergo strict military training in their lives. They value hierarchy and organization, and they hate it when people act on impulse.
In this relationship, Aries and Capricorn can bring something unique to each other. For instance, Aries can show Capricorn a little enthusiasm and excitement while Capricorns can bring order and harmony to the relationship.
Capricorn and Libra
Another disaster waiting to happen would be the relationship between Capricorns and Libras. These zodiacs have so many differences that they must exert extreme effort to make the relationship work.
For instance, as the zodiac's social butterflies, Libras tend to socialize and interact with other people a lot. Capricorns only concern themselves with practical matters such as career and money. Libra would often wish that Capricorns will loosen up a bit and enjoy life. On the other hand, Capricorns would want Libras to settle for a little bit and focus more on practical matters.
Even their tastes differ a lot. Libras like to stay in touch with the newest trend such as indie music, pop culture, rock and metal bands, a new wave of art movements, and the like. On the other hand, Capricorns like the classics. They’ll stay with the traditional and classical style of literature, music, and art.
Overall, they can start the relationship slow and steady. That’s the only way that they can make this relationship work in the long run.
Overall, Capricorns pride themselves on their outstanding dedication and hard work. They know how to make ends meet, and they always stay on the path to achieve their goals. They like to follow a rigid structure of instructions, and they never deviate from the norm. As a zodiac ruled by the planet Saturn, Capricorns have a lot of experience and use them to succeed in life.
As such, the best partners for Capricorns will be their fellow Earth signs (Virgo, Taurus, and Capricorn). All of them know hard work, and they know how to use their practicality and intelligence to good use. They can work together to achieve their dreams and establish adequate material security. Capricorns also matches well with the Water signs (Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces) because they can provide emotional depth to the dull and stagnant Capricorn.
Working will never be a problem for Capricorns, so go forth and work on your relationship with your Capricorn man with the help of Capricorn Man Secrets in-depth guide.
