Capricorn - Aries Love Compatibility




Capricorn and Aries may well have very little in the way of personality similarities, but this doesn’t necessarily mean they can't experience a good level of love compatibility. In reality it’s often those couples who have the least in common who enjoy the most exciting and stimulating relationships!


Traditionally this combination is considered to be quite difficult! When two people are born under conflicting elements – here Earth and Fire – it can be hard for them to fully understand where one another are coming from, and their level of love compatibility is likely to be poor.

Tensions can arise due to their contrasting ways of going about things – normally quite boldly and spontaneously when someone has the Sun in Aries, but much more cautiously and deliberately with a Capricorn Sun. The fearless Ram may see Capricorn as far too slow and plodding; on the other hand, to the prudent Goat, Aries' steam-roller approach can seem rash and stupid.

There are some noticeable differences in what these star signs are looking to get out of life – in the case of Aries, quick results and immediate rewards – in the case of Capricorn, long-term achievement and status. In an ongoing relationship, this can often give the sense of being pulled in totally conflicting directions.

Because Fire and Earth have a natural tendency to extinguish each other, in order to be able to function harmoniously together, Capricorn and Aries have to be very careful not to cancel the other one out. For impatient Aries the challenge is to learn not to push Capricorn into doing things before it’s good and ready, while Capricorn mustn't allow its fears and insecurities to stifle Aries’ natural enthusiasm and drive.


The characteristic emotional responses of the signs Capricorn and Aries really couldn’t be much more different!

Aries shows its feelings very spontaneously, and often quite recklessly, regardless of the fall-out they are likely to create. In contrast, the wily Goat is much better at controlling the expression of emotions unlikely to help its cause. Capricorn is a sign that plans its tactics carefully, always with long-term goals and ambitions in mind. The headstrong Ram rushes in where angels fear to tread leaving a trail of havoc in its wake.

A strong love connection will be necessary between these two for Capricorn to be able to tolerate what it sees as Aries’s childishness. In turn, passionate Aries will have a hard time coping with the Goat’s tight-lipped emotional restraint.


Here we have one person who is a very quick-witted and progressive thinker, while the other’s mind operates much more slowly and along much more conservative lines. Conflicts consequently arise when Aries comes up with a new idea and wants to act on it immediately, but Capricorn dismisses it as too impractical and risky. Aries complains the Goat is a narrow-minded stick-in-the-mud, while Capricorn sees the Ram as a hot-headed fool.

On the one hand, Aries loves a good debate and thrives on a bit of vigorous mental sparring. Capricorn on the other hand, famous for its verbal continence and its personal dignity, resolutely refuses to be drawn into a loud-mouthed argument, much to the frustration of the Ram. Capricorn’s instinctive taciturnity means it often finds it hard to get a word in with Aries who tends to grab the lion’s share of the conversation. This imbalance in these two Star Sign’s communication styles will need to be addressed for their relationship to work.


Sexually, Capricorn and Aries may be somewhat ill-matched initially: the fast-moving Ram is often too sexually quick off the mark for careful Capricorn, while for Aries, the Goat can seem rather lacking in passion and take far too long to get going. For good sex, Aries has to be prepared to spend more time on foreplay, while Capricorn needs to speed up a bit and switch on to the thrill of the chase.


Given the above average level of compatibility challenges for a Capricorn-Aries couple, their best chance of success is to exploit their personality differences to their mutual advantage and try to work together as a team. Joint projects and campaigns of all kinds will do best if canny Capricorn is given enough time to carefully plan the appropriate strategy and practical details, before the fearless Ram goes forth and does battle.

The big question mark is whether Aries will sabotage the Goat’s shrewd planning by jumping the gun, interfering, and trying to run the whole show.
