Earth sign; compatible with Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn.
Extremely practical, rational, analytical and concrete. Very good for business.
They are organised, like security and stability. They accumulate material goods during all their life, they like the security of what is seen and not of what is not seen.
They are compatible with the signs of the Water element: Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces.
Capricorn: Compatibility as a couple
Generally speaking, Capricorn wants a relationship to lead to something: the bigger the better. Family, home, a group of children: everything that can be described as success in life. If a partner has fewer ambitions and even opposes such plans, the relationship is doomed to fail.
Capricorn enters a relationship with a strong commitment and makes sure that whatever is desired is all that can be desired. Something like a project or a business venture. There is love, certainly, but it is expressed in a concrete way that may seem lacking in romance to some.
Still, Capricorn knows how to make the effort that makes their partner happy.
Capricorn: compatibility with other signs
Capricorn, the zodiac's achiever, belongs to the earth element, which is the element of material things and concrete action. So are Taurus and Virgo, but that doesn't necessarily mean that Capricorn is particularly compatible with them, they need to agree a lot with each other to get along.
Nor is Capricorn incompatible with, say, the air signs like Gemini, Libra and Aquarius, although they are quite different. Actually, differences are important in a relationship.
This is most evident when comparing astrological qualities: cardinal, fixed and mutable. Each sign of the Zodiac has one of these qualities.
Capricorn is cardinal, which means leading. That does not pair well with other cardinal signs in a relationship. They are Aries, Cancer and Libra. None of them are compatible with Capricorn, as there will be a leadership rivalry. Two strong wills often clash.
Capricorn is much more compatible with the mutable signs. They are Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces. Such a relationship, with a leader and a mutable, is fluid. But, of course, there may be other problems.
With the signs fixed or slow to change, things can get complicated with Capricorn if the two don't agree on most things from the start. Otherwise, the two will sooner or later find that they are incompatible. The fixed signs are Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius.
But nothing is set in stone. A relationship is complex. There is no guarantee of what will work and what will not.
All the personality traits of each zodiac sign must be taken into account when examining their compatibility in astrology.
