Aries and Capricorn Compatibility:
Love, Sex, Trust and Life
Capricornians are by nature self-satisfied and quiet, not speaking much. This stems from not wanting to stop just to turn around and see who has fallen by the roadside. The members of this sign are neither jovial and nor are they innocent. Capricornians are self-governing and idealistic in their own way, with helpings of wisdom and patience. A Capricorn is more often than not of the opinion that rashly falling in love is an extremely irresponsible act. Rather than any act that is risky in any way, they will opt for what is sure each and every time. Family is very important to a Capricorn and he will make sure that they are protected at any cost. Patience is another virtue that they abound in. Though a Capricorn appears remote and unapproachable, people close to them are well aware that they too revel in admiration.
The planet Mars signifies Passion and is the ruler of Aries; Saturn rules Capricorn and signifies karma or work. They are signs that usually move in opposite direction. Similarly Aries and Capricorn have to work very hard to find something in common. However great help can be extended by both while working on any project. Saturn pushes the powers of perseverance but the drive of Mars ensures the energy and drive that will push matters through. Aries and Capricorn make better professional partners than bed partners. Both these signs are very stubborn; unless properly tethered and directed positively, this couple can turn cruel, violent and even inflict emotional wounds on each other. Another fallout could be that the emotions are suppressed.
Capricorn and Aries both fascinate and misunderstand each other. They are totally different in every respect. To the Aries a Capricorn is stodgy and dull; the Capricorn on the other hand thinks that Aries is too casual and not particularly intelligent. If an Aries and Capricorn fall in love, there has to be a lot of very hard work if the mutual energy is to be maintained. The focus of Aries is to act – not usually considering the direction or what will actually be achieved. On the other hand a Capricorn thinks hard about what the outcome will be before even taking one step forward. Capricorn feels that Aries moves at a pace that is unnecessarily risky. The Capricorn works hard and tirelessly towards prior set goals and which he is determined to reach. Aries and Capricorn both reach their goals – they just choose very different means to do so. Usually their goals too have hardly any similarity.
Secretly the Capricorn is a little jealous of the ease with which the Aries sails through life so carelessly and with so much freedom. So far as the people they acre about are concerned, they are rather susceptible to aloofness and being rebuffed. The ambition that a Capricorn nurtures makes them highly successful. As they grow a little older they become just a tad less careworn. This is the prime reason why Capricorn and Aries enjoy time with each other the older they get. A Capricorn who is yet to mature is normally scared by his counterpart, the young Aries’ supremely careless attitude. If the totally unintended carelessness by both can be overcome, they become inseparable. The strength of the love they feel for each other becomes unsurmountable. Emotions rule an Aries and he is whimsical but principled. Capricorns are far more practical and tackle facts emotionlessly, tackle their faults in such a manner that turn out to become their virtues in the long run.
Both – Aries as well as Capricorn are Cardinal signs. Both the signs are good at initiating; however their objectives and interests are at either end of the spectrum. Both give off their best when well defined goals are in front of them to act on. Apparently Aries is the leader – on a virtual stampede, they do what they have to by knocking down any blockades on the way. However, it is the Capricorn who indirectly takes the lead. They work slowly and surely towards their objectives. Both should grasp that compromise is the key to succeed for both of them.
The small wonders or attractions of life are not particularly appealing to the Aries – their carefree and dashing nature is very prominent. Life is a permanent challenge and they wait impatiently for the next day to begin! Soaring through life is what interests them the most. Their ego plays an important part in choosing any project to work on. Aries can be impetuous and run around in circles, trying to gain acceptance. It is their callous and juvenile manner of behavior that makes them appear self centred. Finances and banking matters are not their strong point and usually help is needed. Their body language is indicative of their latent abilities to be successful.
Capricorn is an earth, while Aries is a Fire sign. While Capricorn is more down to earth, Aries is a bundle of dynamo. Capricorn usually ask themselves if what they are doing will have any positive effect even as they keep moving towards their main goal. As a direct contrast, Aries simply see what he wants and moves in that direction.
It is frequently alleged that a prime way in which a Capricorn climbs up is by ascending the financial or social ladder. An Aries reacts to this with aa great deal of empathy. If a romantic relationship develops between an Aries and a Capricorn, marriage happens very fast. However, the Capricorn partner deliberates and thinks over the matter. If accused by Aries as being too ambitious, the Capricorn can be hurt. If an Aries is ambitious, there is no hiding it. As a contrast to pessimism, they are optimistic to the extent of being silly. An Aries has no respect at all for authority. But a Capricorn shows far more wisdom and practicality. It is exasperating, but they almost always turn out to be right! If the egocentricities remain in check any association between these two signs remains fresh and evergreen.
When Aries and Capricorns forge a relationship, it has a unique strength and contains a lot of love and empathy. Being polar opposites, once a relationship is forged, both remain staunchly attached. So far as family, acquaintances and professional colleagues are concerned, Capricorns are lime a well of love and closeness, while Aries is the source of warmth and security. Success and happiness is achieved through mutual effort.
In a Capricorn-Aries relationship – finance is the lookout of the Capricorn, while Aries sees to the external affairs. Romance though initially slow, can have a very positive effect on them. Capricorn is initially cautious, but after that is overcome the relationship is warm and loving. Family plays a very important role and children born of this union are looked after and taken care of with aplomb.
Since both these signs are so very different, conflicts abound, especially in the initial stages; they find it impossibly difficult to comprehend or accept. The unstructured Aries is difficult to accept by the pragmatic and alert Capricorn. This unfortunately makes the Aries find them dull. Therefore a working relationship between both of them needs a lot of work done. Finances can also cause friction as Aries like spending money and Capricorns don’t believe in unnecessary extravagance.Any relationship between the two is a learning experience. Capricorn learns to be a little freer and an Aries is taught to be less reckless and not so prone to judge others.
In the Aries-Capricorn relationship, certain unique features can be observed. Once each is allowed space to grow, they blend and make an awesome whole. Undoubtedly the relationship is challenging, but any effort is well worth it. When this bonding is based on love and respect, all obstacles can be overcome.
