Which Star Signs Should Capricorn Date?



Which Star Signs does Capricorn get along with most easily? What are the best – the worst – and the most intriguing – compatibility matches for Capricorn? Which Star Signs should a Capricorn man or woman date?

Capricorn Compatibility

As the most responsible of all the Star Signs, but not necessarily the most exciting, Capricorn makes a great match for anyone who values loyalty and dependability in a partner. For optimum compatibility, Capricorn does best with someone who shares its own down-to-earth approach to life and is looking for long-term benefits from a relationship as opposed to short-term thrills.

Signs Most Compatible With Capricorn

As a Star Sign ruled by the Element of Earth, the safest bet for a Capricorn is probably one of the other two Earth Signs, i.e. TAURUS or VIRGO. The favorable 120° – or 4 Signs – spacing between Zodiac Signs in the same Element makes for an especially harmonious relationship and a level of compatibility well above the norm.

Both Taurus and Virgo are good compatibility matches for Capricorn since they share Capricorn’s practical, responsible and material approach to life. However, Virgo probably just beats Taurus as the better compatibility choice for Capricorn. Because Capricorn and Virgo are equally diligent and conscientious, they find it relatively easy to cope with each other’s workaholic tendencies.

Really excellent too, in terms of their ability to harmonize with earthy Capricorn, while at the same time helping it to develop more sensitivity, are the Water Signs SCORPIO and PISCES, spaced by 60° – or next but one – from Capricorn. Many believe this kind of Earth-Water combination is actually the ideal – and surely it’s no coincidence that a high proportion of successful compatibility matches are between people with birthdays two Zodiac Signs apart.

What About Another Capricorn?

So what about another CAPRICORN as a good compatibility match? On the plus side, you’ll definitely know what makes them tick, since they embody so many aspects of yourself. Especially with a Capricorn of the opposite sex, the chances are you’ll be strongly attracted to their best Capricorn qualities – like their ambitiousness, diligence and great reliability.

But because we don’t tend to like our bad points when we see them reflected in somebody else, there will also be things about Capricorn people that you’ll positively hate – most likely their parsimony and workaholism! If so, better take a long hard look at yourself in the mirror!

Signs Least Compatible With Capricorn

The truth is, Capricorn, your ideal compatibility match will rarely simply be a clone of yourself (how boring would that be!). But neither, for that matter, should their Star Sign be too astrologically antagonistic to your own.

For this reason, you should be cautious – in the absence of redeeming features – about folk born under the Star Signs of ARIES and LIBRA. Because both these Signs are at a challenging 90° angle (or 3 Sign spacing) from Capricorn, the differences between you may be so vast, the chances are they’ll be too incompatible – and just too much hard work!

Of these two Star Signs, Libra just qualifies as the worst possible compatibility match for Capricorn. Due to its laid-back outlook and need for constant companionship, Libra may find it harder than most other Signs to cope with Capricorn’s unrelenting self-discipline and workaholic lifestyle.

Signs spaced at 150° (or 5 Signs) from Capricorn, such as GEMINI, can also present more minor compatibility challenges. However, although traditionally considered to be ‘awkward’, and involving signs in conflicting elements, 150° relationships aren’t necessarily quite as bad as they might appear. Okay, these may not be your first choice, but neither should they be your last. So don’t make the mistake of writing them off as unsuitable – in many cases a love match could work out fine!

Why Opposites Attract

Rather than someone who conflicts with you, Capricorn, what you’re really looking for, from a Star Sign compatibility point of view, is the kind of person who is able to balance or complement you in some way. For this reason, the Sign diametrically opposite your own, i.e. CANCER, can be a great compatibility match for you, Capricorn.

Opposite Star Signs are often magnetically attracted to each other, their strong yin-yang polarity giving them the potential to complete each other like two halves of a perfect whole. When dating a Cancer, sensible, feet-on-the-ground Capricorn can benefit from its opposite Sign’s gentler and much more sensitive approach. Capricorn’s tendency towards emotional self-repression is helpfully offset by Cancer’s willingness to openly wear its heart on its sleeve.

Neighboring Star Signs

Although Capricorn is quite different from its immediate neighbors, SAGITTARIUS and AQUARIUS, in reality it can relate quite well to – and frequently enjoys quite a good level of compatibility with – these Star Signs. This is because people whose Sun Sign is Capricorn often have Mercury or Venus – which can never be far from the Sun – in the preceding or following signs of Sagittarius or Aquarius. Many Capricorn-Sagittarius or Capricorn-Aquarius couples will therefore embody a number of each other’s characteristics and have far more in common than you might initially expect.

Capricorn Compatibility ‘Wild Card’

Although not technically recognized as a good compatibility match for Leo because of the awkward 150° angle, LEO is a popular ‘wild card’ partnership choice for the Goat. Despite their very real Earth-Fire differences, Capricorn and Leo are closely linked by their burning sense of ambition and desire to get on in life. If these two can avoid bickering over their conflicting attitudes towards work and money, no Star Sign combination can climb the ladder together more quickly and more successfully!

How Can Capricorn Improve Their Compatibility?

To improve their chances of getting on better with every Star Sign, Capricorn should focus on showing others less of their most annoying traits, i.e. their pessimism and miserliness, and more of what's most endearing about them, i.e. their loyalty and dependability. If you're a Capricorn, in general everyone will find you easier to live with if you stop driving yourself, and others, quite so hard and are more willing to kick back and enjoy life. This will be particularly important in the case of Star Sign matches which present the biggest compatibility challenges for a Capricorn, as detailed above.
