CAPRICORN IN RELATIONSHIPS
ROMANTIC: Capricorns can be shy of revealing themselves to others and it takes a while for them to let their guard down. When they relax with someone they like, they are able to express the warmer, more sensuous side of their nature.
FRIENDSHIP: You’ll need to earn the respect and admiration of a Capricorn before they’ll accept you as a friend.
FAMILY: The family represents tradition and status rather than warm nurturing. Capricorn will always carry out their familial duties, but close emotional ties are less common.
PROFESSIONAL: Capricorns are the ultimate professionals but their commitment to their own ambitions will come before everything else.
KEY RELATIONSHIP: could well be with whoever or whatever can help achieve the next step towards fulfilling Capricorn’s goals.
THE CARDINAL EARTH ELEMENT OF CAPRICORN
The 3 earth signs Taurus, Virgo & Capricorn are practical, sensible, methodical, steady and they prefer to do things in their own time. They can be stubborn and overly materialistic. Earth signs tend to prioritise stability, status and physical comfort. The 4 signs Aries, Cancer, Libra & Capricorn share a Cardinal quality which is aspirational and goal-oriented.
Go-getting Cardinal quality combined with constructive Earth energy makes the 10th zodiac sign ambitious, self-sufficient and mature. Capricorn often has to guard against their objectives being completely driven by material success and social status.
Capricorn with Fire Signs:
ARIES These two share an ambitious streak but disagreements arise when Capricorn insists on long-term planning and Aries demands spur of the moment decisions.
LEO This pair could go far. The combination of Capricorn ‘s ambition and Leo’s aspiration is bound to give them a head start.
SAGITTARIUS This partnership works well in the planning stages as Sagittarius is happy to set targets and Capricorn can’t go anywhere without goals.
Capricorn with fellow Earth Signs:
TAURUS This is a materialistic match but Taurus seeks the luxuries of life while Capricorn is aiming mainly for achievement.
VIRGO These two can achieve a great deal. Virgo makes sure everything goes according to plan and Capricorn sets down the objectives.
CAPRICORN it’s a world championship chess match! But these two will have to be careful not to rank strategy over sweet-talk.
Capricorn with Air Signs:
GEMINI This is a great business combo. Capricorn provides the planning and Gemini inputs the ideas.
LIBRA It’s an approach issue. Capricorn chooses to sue while Libra prefers to use diplomacy.
AQUARIUS Conventional Capricorn plays by the rules whereas avant-garde Aquarius dares to be different.
Capricorn with Water Signs:
CANCER There’s a natural attraction between these two but Capricorn requires a signature backed up by a legal document while Cancer just knows it.
SCORPIO These two just get each other. Capricorn’s ambitious nature appreciates Scorpio’s need for control.
PISCES There’s potential so long as organised Capricorn can cope with Pisces’ lack of focus and emotional Pisces can deal with Capricorn’s formal style.
Note: Your Zodiac Sign refers to which astrological constellation the Sun appeared to be in on the date of your birth. Each sign lasts for about 30 days, starting from around the 21st of each calendar month. If you were born close to the cusp of one sign and the next, you will need to check your year of birth for which date and at what time on that date, the Sun moved signs.
