Sagittarius - Capricorn Love Compatibility




Although in many ways it may seem that couples with consecutive Star Signs, like Sagittarius and Capricorn, have little in common, because there’s a greater than average probability that they will share Mercury and/or Venus signs, they often have far more similarities, and thus a higher level of love compatibility, than one might expect.


Certainly, there are some big differences between Sagittarius and Capricorn due to the conflicting Fire-Earth combination – the former basically being quite free-spirited and adventurous while the latter is much more cautious and conservative.

Nevertheless – probably because they're next-door neighbors in the Zodiac – consecutive Star Signs like Sagittarius and Capricorn are traditionally considered to have quite a good level of love compatibility and a reasonable chance of understanding each other and getting on.

There’s a surprising ability to relate to one another’s weak points, which each can help the other to overcome. Capricorn, for example, can give practical support to the Archer's grand schemes – which it may secretly find quite exciting – while keeping a check on the Fire sign's over-optimism. In turn, Sagittarius can temper the Goat's overly developed sense of duty, encouraging it to be a little less conscientious and to have a bit more fun.

In a long-term relationship, however, a Sagittarius-Capricorn couple’s dramatically differing approaches to risk can sometimes cause a few problems. Sagittarius's gambling instincts and tendency to throw caution to the wind can be worrying to Capricorn who always likes to plan for tomorrow; in turn, the cavalier Archer may feel held back by the Goat’s wet-blanket pessimism at times.


Emotionally, Sagittarius and Capricorn respond in very different ways, each sign having its own virtues as well as its failings!

Sagittarius always looks on the sunny side of life, but can easily get badly caught out by storms it never saw coming. Capricorn can be a bit of a doom monger, but at least is always well prepared for the worst. Capricorn prefers to follow a safe, well-defined path, while Sagittarius likes to feel free and keep all of its options open. Sagittarius can be guilty of taking very foolish risks, but Capricorn is often so scared to take any kind of chances that it misses out on valuable opportunities.

Ideally, these two will meet somewhere in the middle and balance each others’ excesses quite nicely. But it’s just as likely that the level-headed Earth sign will become exasperated by what it sees as Sagittarius’s immaturity, while the playful Fire sign will find Capricorn’s sensible, ‘grown-up’ approach too dull and boring.


Sexually, Sagittarius and Capricorn may be somewhat mis-matched initially. The upfront and outrageously outspoken Archer is often too brash and too quick off the mark for dignified Capricorn who prefers to take its time over love – while to the passionate Fire sign, the Goat can seem too cold and inhibited and take too long to get going. For good sex, Sagittarius has to learn to refine its act, while Capricorn needs to switch on to the thrill of the chase.


It’s hard for these two Star Signs to relate to each other’s ways of thinking since they have such different outlooks on the world. It’s equally difficult for them to communicate freely and easily because their verbal styles have so little in common.

While Sagittarius views life as a giant adventure playground, for Capricorn it’s all about getting down to the serious business of building a career, making money and getting on in the world. Whereas Sagittarius loves to discuss exciting possibilities, the Goat prefers to talk about hard facts and realities. The Archer expresses itself with great ebullience and optimism which contrasts sharply with Capricorn’s matter-of-fact and sober style.

Conversation between these Star Signs is likely to be quite sparse and labored unless Sagittarius learns to present its grand visions as more practically feasible, and Capricorn succeeds in opening its mind to a more venturesome and upbeat take on life.


The degree of challenge in a Sagittarius-Capricorn relationship fundamentally depends on just how representative the two people are of their respective star signs. A stereotypical Sagittarian laughs their way through life, sees it as a thrilling adventure, and shies away from restrictive commitments. An all-Capricorn individual is a sombre realist who puts work before play and takes its responsibilities in life extremely seriously.

In the worst case scenario a Sagittarius-Capricorn couple would find it incredibly difficult to co-exist in a close relationship without driving each other to distraction. But because of how horoscopes work, neighboring star signs like Sagittarius and Capricorn often embody some of each other’s traits and have more in common than you would initially expect – and this is especially the case if they are romantically attracted to each other. For this reason, the odds of a Sagittarius-Capricorn love match turning out to be successful are estimated at 50/50.
