Capricorn and Capricorn can be a pairing of deep understanding or a constant locking of horns.

Most likely, it will be a satisfying mix of both. After all, Capricorn, an impactful cardinal sign, would get bored and lose respect for a timid lover.​

Looking in the Cappy mirror, they avoid the courtship games of other signs. Capricorn is ruled by Saturn and has a traditional bent. They're thinking long-term. Often, this is a noble virtue that allows them to build up lasting structures and relationships.

They'll keep a formal facade until they're sure it's a go. Neither is put off by a brusque demeanor. Both appreciate keeping things light, with short meetings until there's a basis for more.

Naturals at Physical Intimacy

As an earth sign, Cappy is a natural when it comes to physical intimacy. They appreciate sex as a bonding agent in building their relationship.

They'll double down on earth element things, possibly to the point of overdoing it. A Capricorn (Sun) often finds a lusty lover with a bawdy sense of humor. The Capricorn's subtle humor is often surprisingly naughty.

Capricorn in love is traditional and sometimes family-minded. A secret about them is that their other spirit animal is the mythical Seagoat. Some are surprisingly profound. 

Controlling Agents

Quality and Element: Cardinal (activating) Earth (manifesting, realists)

Capricorns like to feel in control when they're in love, so there could be some power struggles here. A Seagoat won't shrink in a confrontation, increasing the chances that a duel ends in a draw.

Each no longer feels like a loner, since the Seagoat knows that the real melancholy comes in cycles, sometimes to morose, impenetrable extremes. They know when to leave the other alone and when to provoke the other out of the gloom.

When trust allows them to share their secrets, true love begins. A test will be the dark clouds that pass through these complex souls. They're vulnerable to creating patterns in relationships that draw them down into the muck. They'll want to be sure what they're creating is balanced with light times.

Are Capricorns Compatible With Each Other?

Capricorn is a sign that strives for achievement, status, and worldly wealth. It helps their chances if both bring a sense of having climbed mountains in the relationship. This takes the pressure off and enables them to tend to other areas.

Once committed, Capricorns have a tendency to stick together. Two masters of the earthly realm make great partners in a family business. They plan the future with financial stability in mind and fill their home with antiques and other timeless treasures. Neither likes to throw things out and will support a resourceful hoarding of stuff.

Upside: Similar values, practical mindset, ambitious, resourceful, sensuous, love quality over quantity, traditionalists, loyal.

Downside: Dark moods, too serious, trouble sharing power, controlling, all work with little play. Read as much as possible about the dark side of Capricorn to know what you're getting into.
