These Signs Are the Most (and Least) Compatible With Capricorn

When you've got your eyes on someone special, your innate compatibility can play a huge role in whether things work out for you, or fizzle in an instant.

Of course, for a lot of people, actually determining that compatibility, isn't possible until you've actually gotten the chance to get to know each other. However, if you're a believer in astrology, you might find yourself with a big upper hand. If you know each party's zodiac sign, that's basically shorthand for knowing how things will work out in a potential relationship.

So, whether you're a Capricorn yourself, or simply interested in one, here are the signs most (and least) compatible with them.

Most Compatible

Taurus

When it comes to the zodiac, signs born under the same element tend to have high compatibility, and that's particularly true in this earth-earth pairing. Capricorn and Taurus share a lot of common ground with their particularly hardworking and ambitious natures. Both signs are known for being totally dependable, and while they can each have a hard time trusting others to get the job done quite like they do, in this match, they'll find they have nothing to worry about. They'll know that the other has their back. While in some situations it can be fully possible that these signs have too much in common, in most cases, Taurus and Capricorn will see that they have not just a strong romantic relationship, but a partnership that can be beneficial in other areas as well.

Leo

At first glance, it might seem like a partnership between Leo and Capricorn wouldn't work out at all, but that's not quite the case. Even though these two are often polar opposites, they can actually form a very strong relationship specifically because they have such different strings to bring to their romantic lives. While Leo's positivity and Cap's pessimism may cause conflict on occasion, there are other opportunities where it will help both parties find balance. While Capricorn is one to always plan ahead and create a course of action to achieve what they want, Leo has exactly what it takes to help them stick to that plan and make it a reality. Leo can bring Capricorn out of their shell, while Capricorn has strengths in helping Leo come back down to earth. If they can communicate effectively, these two can achieve spectacular things together.

 

Virgo

Virgo and Capricorn are another double-earth sign couple that can thrive based on the powerful similarities between the two signs. Both are intelligent, grounded and curious, with a love for learning. However, their approaches to accumulating new wisdom can be quite different. While Virgo is all about perfecting the details, Capricorn is a big-picture thinker with the ambition to get any project done. Each can be a bit specific about how they do things, and struggle to compromise, but when they see the other succeeding in their endeavors, they'll be more likely to open up to new ideas and learn a lot from each other.

Least Compatible

Aries

The relationships that will be more of a struggle include Aries and Capricorn. These two have such different approaches to life that it can sometimes seem nearly impossible to even get on the same page. That's because Aries is action-oriented and impulsive, which can make them see reserved Capricorn as a total bore, while Capricorn will struggle to understand why they do what they do, without any kind of plan to back them up. It's the classic case of chaos vs. structure, and extroversion vs. introversion. Of course, it's always possible to find a middle ground—but in this case, it may require so much compromise from both sides that neither will be happy.

 

Gemini

Partnerships between Geminis and Capricorns can be tough for a different reason entirely, and that's because they can start feeling more like a parent-child relationship than a coupling between peers. Gemini can sometimes be quite immature, which is a big turnoff for Capricorn, while Cap can sometimes be too stuffy for Gemini's fun-loving and sociable nature. Gemini can learn a lot from Capricorn if they're open to it, but their playful nature can sometimes be at odds with Capricorn's more serious approach. They can also have conflicting ideas about what their social lives will look like, with Gemini preferring to spend time out with friends over cozy, quiet nights in, so unless these two get very honest and are willing to make sacrifices, it can be tough.

Sagittarius

The main conflict in a relationship between Sagittarius and Capricorn often comes down to Sagittarius's love of freedom and feeling restrained by Capricorn's needs. Sagittarius just wants to go live their life, not being held back by anything, while Capricorn's sense of duty and responsibility is what gives them purpose. Again, boredom becomes an issue. Sagittarius doesn't live to work, while Capricorn knows the necessity of working to live. Capricorn's by-the-books thinking also doesn't often agree with Sagittarius's more philosophical and open-minded approach. Even coming to agreements on things can be difficult, simply because the two don't feel like they're even discussing the same issue.
