A Capricorn love horoscope is decided by the romantic and general traits of Capricorns. This sign, which falls between December 22nd and January 20th, is considered one of the most stable in the zodiac. Those who call themselves Capricorns can be some of the best marriage material out there. These people are strong-willed without being obnoxious about it, self-assured, in possession of the knowledge of who they are without others influencing them, and because of this, they are comfortable in any social situation. They have a surprisingly sharp wit, that people are rarely prepared for because too many people see these folks as boring.
It’s important to remember that though externally the Capricorn seems to be steady and unaffected by emotional ups and downs, they experience emotional highs and lows that are very extreme. Most are excellent at hiding this, and only their closest friends and family are aware of the intense emotions a Capricorn can feel.
Dating Capricorn And Minding Their Feelings
They match best with Earth and Water. Capricorn is the Cardinal Earth sign and CEO of the Zodiac. Because of this, Capricorn gets along with like-minded Earth signs in love. They do not do well with flighty friends and that includes wishy washy Libra or Mutable Gemini. Capricorn is looking for a life partner, mutable Sagittarius may be too flexible in loyalty for Capricorn’s taste. Those are exactly the needs that Capricorn lives to meet, regardless of Zodiac.
This is a sign that loves to hide its feelings and that can make it hard to get a relationship off the ground. They tend to distrust emotion and emotionality, and so they’ll wait, often too long, to say ‘I like you’ and get the ball rolling. If saying how they feel means they may be rejected, they more often than not will say nothing at all. However, once in a relationship, this is a sign that will love deeply, work hard to keep romance alive in the relationship, and makes incredibly passionate lovers. They are willing and able to do whatever it takes to keep a relationship, and especially a marriage, working through the hard times.
Capricorn love compatibility also looks at how the sign handles things like finance, jealousy, and control. These people are skilled financially and know how to handle money well. They are often drawn to others who use their money wisely. Don’t expect this sign to frivolously throw money around. They protect what they hold close, whether that be finances or friends or lovers. Protecting a relationship is one of the things they do best and they will do whatever is necessary to keep it going even if it comes at great personal cost. Because of their emotional reticence, good relationships can be hard to come by for this sign so they hold onto them with all they have. However, this can become a negative and some signs may chaff under this protectiveness, feeling it turns more towards possessiveness. Air and fire signs may struggle with this the most and should work hard at understanding why Capricorn is holding on so tightly.
Great: Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn
Challenging: Aries, Leo, Sagittarius, Libra, Aquarius
Emotional Aspects of a Capricorn Love Horoscope
Emotion and expression of emotion is the greatest stumbling block for Capricorns and something that should be covered in a Capricorn love horoscope. Though Capricorns are incredibly passionate, this doesn’t mean that in a relationship they will suddenly open up and express their emotions and how they feel. Instead, they use their passion almost as a distraction to keep even their loved ones from prying too much into how they feel. Some signs will find this frustrating because it can be a challenge to get a Capricorn mate to open up and this may often feel as though they lack trust in their partner. It’s important to understand that this isn’t the case, Capricorns simply have trouble venting what they feel are dramatic and unnecessary emotions openly.
The best way to deal with a Capricorn mate is to show them that you understand who they are. They don’t have to step out of their comfort zone and they can relax around you. They need a drama free life and one in which they can achieve the balance necessary to help them look ahead. That being said, your Capricorn Love Horoscope may differ depending on what sign you will be pursuing!
Overall: This relationship is slower than most but once it is acknowledged then the parties are in it for long haul. Both sides of this match are Cardinal, which means both are leaders and decisions makers. Capricorn is Cardinal earth sign and so is more grounded than Aries who is always on to next big thing. This may cause a few wrinkles for match but if Aries learns to slow things down to Capricorn tempo, the match stands real chance. Capricorn also may need to learn that risk is a part of life and if they can accept that they will truly come to love and enjoy the Aries spontaneous fire and energy.
Positive: Both are Cardinal so both are very driven when it comes to personal successes. They just go about it in completely different ways. Aries has a fiery and flashy side, whereas Capricorn is more quiet, thinking carefully and strategically. Aries could be too fast for Capricorn and Capricorn too slow for Aries. These are qualities that come to be widely appreciated and respected by the other over time if the relationship is allowed to percolate. The plus with this pair is that they are both very stubborn, so they are committed to making it work. They are both born leaders but in own ways. Earth and Fire balance will create practical and responsible relationship. This can be an exciting and spontaneous relationship over long term if desired.
Challenges: Any conflict between these two born leaders is because they have little in common. Aries likes things exciting and fun, where Capricorn finds too much risk in that. Aries will find Capricorn slow on occasion and sometimes even boring. Capricorn has same problem with Aries, that they are a little too high on the energy meter and should probably settle down to one idea or thing. In a work environment, they are good. In love, this can lead to problems. Both Capricorn and Aries are completely different energy wavelengths, if they fight at all, this is what its about. Aries is always living in the moment, whereas Capricorn is thinking five years down the road. This pair will need to find a way to balance these differences if they want to stick it out for the long term.
Make it Work: The best way to compromise the obvious differences would be to come together and define a shared goal. Although both of these signs pursue their goals differently, when they share the same goal, success is inevitable. If Capricorn and Aries can do this from the beginning of their relationship then success is to be had. The easiest and most comfortable ways for both signs to accomplish this will be for Aries to let go of their need of instant gratification and slow down a bit. Capricorn as well needs to speed things up and should be open to living in a moment more than once in a while rather than always worrying about what is going on ten years down the road. There will need to be some flexing by both, but both are committed to success and sharing that vision will lead to many successful years together.
Overall: This is a great match because they have a lot in common. They want the same thing and it is at the top of their list. Their strong work ethic and real nature is difficult to find.

It is not exciting but it is fulfilling. They can count on each other.
Challenges: They differ in qualities. The fixed Taurus will want all of Capricorn’s attention. Cardinal Earth Capricorn is a boss that works late nights that Taurus won’t like. Taurus finds Capricorn too conservative and rigid. Capricorn doesn’t like drama so they don’t like how Taurus won’t let things go. There is not a lot of sexual chemistry, but with their strong foundation of love and dedication they will surpass any areas of weakened chemistry.
Make it Work: Both share the traits of commitment and loyalty, so this relationship will not be hard to make it work. They love to enjoy material success and have common ground. Taurus will need to enjoy Capricorn ethic and their desire to provide. If Taurus finds Capricorn too conservative or stubborn, Taurus needs to take the lead on bringing the fun into the union.

Capricorn is ruled by Saturn, the planet of power, prestige, and success. These are all likely in their lifetime, which is something that will make Gemini very proud.
Challenges: These are two masculine energies at play and that’s why heads butt. Gemini starts with intellect, which Capricorn will appreciate until Gemini uses it to twist things in a disagreement. Gemini needs a fast paced environment to feel settled and Capricorn is the opposite. If Gemini wants to go out, Capricorn should let them without making it a big deal. Capricorn should go out sometimes too. Gemini doesn’t want to be forced into anything, and that’s something Capricorn needs to remember. Gemini must remember its not always about them and their way.
Make it Work: Combining Air and Earth will require they embrace their differences. Capricorn is good at starting things and Gemini is good at following along. This embracing will be useful for long term. Freedom must be granted to all partners in this love match as neither wants to be pressured or forced into everything. Capricorn is slow and steady, Gemini is the opposite. Both signs need to learn to adopt their partner’s traits once in awhile. This will make it a fun and exciting, as well as successful, time.

Cancer will admire Capricorn’s success or how successful they are working to be. This is a slow growing love compatibility as Earth Signs tend to work that way and then its all systems go.
Challenges: There area few differences in what they want for the long term. Short term, there will be stumbling blocks. Capricorn focuses on the material, spiritual, and intuitive which Cancer may find annoying. Cancer wants Capricorn home and in their arms, even if this means less luxuries. For Cancer, they just want worker Capricorn to get home every night. They are born Cardinal, so both want to be the boss and this will create some challenges.
Make it Work: They have to take turns being boss once in a while. Both are skilled negotiators, so no problem there. There is a long term dedication and shared vision for goals.
Overall: This will look like a case of opposites attracting. However, they do have some common interests and goals. The fixed fire Leo with the Cardinal Earth Capricorn can be a successful match.

Challenges: There are some fundamental differences in play. Leo is a quick thinker and mover, while Capricorn is not. Things won’t take off quickly enough for Leo. Capricorn wants to take their time in getting to know Leo before its serious. Leo may not like that because they love flirting, sex, and passion.

They are slow to start but rooted in a foundation of deep devotion to each other and relationship.
Challenges: They appreciate the differences that rest in their qualities. Mutable Virgo is flexible in almost any situation, but not always happy when Capricorn is always at the office.

Libra loves beautiful things in all corners and finds Capricorns work ethic and material success very satisfying. Both Libra and Capricorn lead in very different ways.

The individuals in this match have differences, but they actually complement each other well and this bodes well for successful long term love.
Challenges: One area of commonality that they share is a need to be the boss.

Challenges: Problems come when they become overwhelmed by differences. Capricorn is looking for something stable and secure and long term right off the bat. Those are the last things that Sagittarius wants to hear. Capricorn also has an eye for detail that borders on critical and that Sagittarius’ temper is not keen on. Sagittarius is good at accepting the truth, when it comes to someone else. Confronted with it on their own doing, they will run like the wind. Capricorn isn’t as forgiving as Sagittarius wants.

Make it Work: To see long term success, both have to learn the art of compromise. This is a slow starting match as well, so both are going to need to have patience and give chances without giving up too quickly. Sagittarius will need to be the one to make compromises in this area first.

Challenges: This is two Cardinal signs, which are two great leaders that join forces. This is what can cause problems. They are used to being the boss, and not everyone can be boss all the time in love. Capricorn is the goat, which means they will lock horns.

Aquarius likes the same thing in Capricorn and will inspire Capricorn to engage in the dreamer side of life on occasion.
Challenges: Where this match will run into trouble will be in their stubborn ways. Capricorn and Aquarius are strong willed in their own unique methods. They have opinions that neither one likes to stray from, so compromise will be a problem with this pair. Aquarius as a fixed sign is not one to budge from their opinion and so Capricorn will be doing a lot of bending of will, which will be uncomfy. Capricorn also finds Aquarius a little too out of the box sometimes. Capricorn likes things predictable and stable. Being ruled by Uranus, Aquarius is anything but and could get on Capricorn’s nerves more than once. Aquarius also does not like to be controlled or dominated, which only comes naturally to Capricorn.
Make it Work: There will be some problems in play with this battle of wills. Both have opinions and both are stuck in their ways. Compromise will be useful tool in this relationship.

Pisces has a kindness for humanity and instinctive knack for unconditional love which Capricorn can’t help but fall in love with. Capricorn and Pisces want a love that lasts, both have all the devotion for each other to ensure that it does.
Challenges: There are fundamental personality differences between Capricorn and Pisces that could pose some problems in love. Capricorn is slow and methodical and thinks everything through. It is a highly rational sign that doesn’t appreciate or even need overt displays of emotion. Pisces on other hand is one that wears their heart on sleeve and wants to talk about emotions all the time. Pisces may become frustrated with Capricorns rational approach. Capricorn may become tired or overwhelmed with Pisces emotional approach. Pisces is easily wounded emotionally. Capricorn has a critical side that can be taken the wrong way. A meeting of minds and compromise will be required on both parts for love to stand test of time.
Make it Work: For Capricorn and Pisces to make it work both have to be focused on just that. Differences between the two will need to be overcome and both committed to compromise. Pisces will need to exercise their mutable nature when Capricorn is too unyielding to new ideas.
