Capricorns have a reputation for being cool customers–career-driven social climbers without a romantic bone in their bodies. Beneath the practical exterior, though, the right partner will find a heart that’s fiercely loyal and smoldering passions waiting to be ignited. Linda Goodman, whose 1994 book “Love Signs: A New Approach to the Human Heart” detailed the romantic possibilities of every conceivable astrological match, describes Capricorn’s vision of love as “a quiet and undemanding exchange of personal gratification.”
Capricorns crave stability, a trait that personifies those born under the sign of Taurus, writes Goodman, but a Capricorn-Taurus match offers more than a stable platform from which to launch a life. Both Capricorns and Taureans value loyalty and devotion, so jealousy will seldom be a problem for this match, writes Joanna Martine Woolfolk in “The Only Astrology Book You’ll Ever Need.”
Capricorns and Taureans both value security, status and hard work, so a Capricorn-Taurus match will likely be a successful one in the worlds of career and society. Both will work hard to establish a comfortable, stable home, and a family business will benefit from their partnership.
When it comes to parenting, the natural Taurus warmth offsets Capricorn’s authoritarian tendencies. Family is important to both signs, and their work ethic will ensure that they provide a comfortable nest and a strong framework for their children. Capricorn and Taurus also value family heritage, so that family business could well become a dynasty to hand on to their children.
The sensual Taurean nature has a way of reaching through the exterior to tap Capricorn’s inner romantic side, while Capricorn’s earthiness and strength can awaken deeper passions in Taurus. A Capricorn-Taurus match may not light the night sky with fireworks, but there’s plenty of spark to keep the hearth fires warm well into the twilight years.
Capricorn’s drive is a good match for Scorpio’s intensity, according to both Goodman and Woolfolk. When Capricorn and Scorpio get together, expect sparks of all kinds. The physical attraction between the two is unmistakable, but Scorpio’s temper and Capricorn’s stubbornness can cause epic battles. Their shared goals and that physical attraction will always bring them back together again, though.
Pisces and Capricorn are a surprisingly good match, especially when you consider Capricorn’s practicality and Pisces’ tendency toward dreaminess. Opposites attract, however, and Pisceans often find a tether in Capricorn’s level-minded stability while Capricorns can let their hair down a little and relax with a Pisces. The Pisces personality is generous with affection, which soothes Capricorn’s typical jealousy, and Capricorn’s loyalty and trust tend to bring out the best in the free-wheeling Pisces spirit.
