This article will examine the compatibility of Aries and Capricorn relationships. We'll take an in-depth look at how these signs interact with each other, what challenges they can have, and how they can overcome those challenges. Remember that the astro-compatibility rating is based on my factors. The paragraphs below will explain the results in detail.

Aries and Capricorn Astro-Compatibility Rating

  • 85% Positive Long-Term Success Rate
  • 50% Short-Term Success Rate

Summary: The older the relationship gets, the better. Capricorn will be the reason it could last, but they're also the reason it might never mature. The older the Aries gets, the less destructive its boundless energy will be. The newer this relationship is, the higher the possibility that it might not work. Assuming that Aries sees Capricorn's virtues as being good in the long term and that Capricorn sees all of Aries' strengths, this could be a relationship with kids, money, and success.

How Do the Goat and the Ram Interact?

These signs are both "Cardinal", which means they share an action-oriented approach to what they do. Aries is fire and Capricorn is earth. Capricorns are typically action-oriented people and, being an earth sign, they always have "a plan." Capricorns feed Aries' energy and bursting ambitious ideation. Aries can make the best of Capricorn's "finished plan," since Aries are not the best at finishing their own plans.

A romance between these two would make quite an image. In a light-hearted way, you can see Aries talking up a storm about how dynamic they are, and Capricorn nodding as they check out Aries' resume. Romance is definitely not an afterthought, but it would only be a part of the package with these two. Aries would do their appealing thing, and Capricorn, knowing that even though they think sex is kind of a funny human thing, would see the absolute importance of it here.

There is a good potential for compatibility, but the compatibility would not be that important unless Capricorn saw a future in it. Let's not leave Aries' attraction out of it. Capricorn could have all of its lists and rules, but if Capricorn were not appealing and attractive to Aries, it would not matter. And that is why the Divine made Capricorn's mystical animal features.

The Capricorn is not an actual goat, and it is not the Devil. It is a creature that can handle and adapt to different settings. Even though they are tough on others, they are an exceedingly successful sign. Capricorn, if they fell for Aries, would manifest its romantic prowess, as best it could. As I said, this creates an image that is a story in itself.

These Two Signs Are a Positive Match

Since Aries and Capricorn share "cardinality", there is a basic match-up here. Fire and Earth work too, positively speaking, because these two could make a family and a corporation together. Earth turns into hard porcelain what Aries conceives and concocts from fired clay.

Regardless of how the genders work, if they were both serious, it could end up as an institution. Capricorn would take things cautiously in the beginning, and since Aries seems to be always game, it could proceed apace, in ever increasing heat, as Capricorn checked off the progress points. Aries' intelligence and brightness would be analyzed and assessed by Capricorn. All Capricorn would have to do is keep up its implicit part of the bargain—which would be to stay almost as dynamic and compelling as Aries.

Capricorn and Aries Have a High Romance Factor

The romance part would probably be the largest hurdle, but Aries and Capricorn could possibly have a high romance factor. If Capricorn could keep Aries' interest and they had a mutuality of passion, the way ahead could look very clear and unobstructed.

Capricorn would have to keep its sometimes negative sense of humor in check and not get into a critical or sardonic mode. Aries should promise not to lose its temper. Romance "dampening" is a strong possibility with these two personalities, who often have strong egos, which they advertise on their front porch, day and night. They should both think about not irritating each other as a point of reverence for the health of the relationship.

Potential Conflicts for These Signs

Aries and Capricorn might not come to blows, but they could get really snappy! Aries could try to head knock the Goat, and the Goat could jump up one rock and the Aries could bruise their face. Aries might retaliate too hard if Capricorn let slip one of its torpedoes. Then they could be "off to the races". Neither will be intimidated, and both are too well armed for anybody's health.

This match could be a notice from the heavens that both should check their quick mouth at the door. We are down here to get conflict in perspective. Often these two could learn to pull their punches, for the long term health of the relationship. Reconciliation and harmony should be pursued as strongly as their commercial and career interests.

How These Astrological Signs Can Make Peace

Life in the end is repetitive and mundane, and so is romance itself. This factor asks the question: "Can we be bored together over the long term?" Capricorn and Aries might take different points of view on the boredom question. Capricorn would enjoy basking in success and enjoying the nice things that it has purchased, to show off its success. Aries would spend less time eating from the fine china and sunning on the deck. Capricorn might build their savings, while Aries might want to spend the savings on another vacation or timeshare.

If both have moderated their tempers and kept up mutual respect, then they could work out the boredom issues; but both should realize that this part of the relationship could mean that "counterbalancing" was in order.

How This Couple Can Stay Interested in Each Other

Capricorn would always be aware, if they truly appreciated and loved Aries, that "keeping up the interest" would be a career goal. If it makes it onto that list, then Capricorn will be OK. If not, then Capricorn's tendency toward smugness and self-satisfaction could trip it up. Aries would be as good as any at "keeping up the interest," unless it was subconsciously angry or resentful, and was not really aware of it.

If Capricorn has truly lost its interest in Aries, it would probably express it in several ways. Aries's constant vitality and automatic rotating focus, could destabilize things, so it would want to remember how fortunate it is.

What Happens to This Relationship After Years Together

There are some signs that, by their nature, are more stable in their love interests and family concerns as time goes on. Others are not. Both of these Cardinal signs are not going to be shy about taking action in love, if they have gone through 6 years of unhappiness. However, Capricorn is not going to mess up what they have invested in. Aries, however, might wander onto another hill just because, after 7 years, they are inquisitive.

Capricorn would let all kinds of possibilities into its head, but that's because they are always pondering "career options." But because their whole life is a career, they would not be impulsive. Aries could be tempted, but because they are constantly tempted, they might see it for what it is—a temptation to be resisted.

Questions & Answers

Question: Do Capricorn women and Aries men make a good couple?

Answer: Capricorn and Aries can be perfect together, but there is a big word "Depending". If you are together right now and have no BIG problems, you are well on your way to having good harmony and profitable experiences. Potential problems--Capricorn serious patterns vs. Aries strong demands and willfulness. Aries desire to direct fun and Joy vs. Capricorn scorn, deadpan analysis and "Superiority". Two together and happy, they could have a family, run a business takeover the world..

Question: Can a Aries man and a Capricorn woman have a a dating relationship and or a married relationship with kids?

Answer: These days you could have a "dating relationship" as an experience which could be broken up if there were a lack of fulfillment on the part of the Aries man or Capricorn woman. The second part of the question seems to be focusing not on "dating" or "marriage", but a more REAL LIFE situational question. since you have not disclosed the custodial angle, (i.e. male has kid or kids, female has kid or kids, or kids from previous relationships join in a "modern family"---and then a new kid is born from both you, I must conclude that you are asking for a basic astro opinion.

So, a straight astro opinion would be that an Aries Man could be highly attractive to a Capricorn woman if he has a stable career and a record of strong steady employment. Sure, he could be romantic, high energy and very interesting to listen to.

Cap Female should ask, after weather he's got a GOOD job; the next would be does he listen to you---does he respect you---and when you become quiet or give your serious Cap opinion on a marital or familial issue, does he listen or dismiss you because you don't have as big a personality as he does. Does he intimidate the Cap woman? Is the Cap woman smarter than the Aries male.

The Aries Male should ask if the Female Cap wants to control things financially. He should ask if she appreciates him on a broad basis, not just because of his muscle and youth. Since Cap humor can be a touch irritating, does he put up with that, or is he OK with Cap's slightly superior ways of communicating. NOW for a passing observation about .parenting--DISCUSS PARENTING PHILOSOPHY BIG TIME. Varying POINTS OF VIEW could be the MAKING or the RUINATION of the Aries/Capricorn union.

Question: I'm a female Capricorn, older than the Aries I'm interested in by 9 years. I have a disability and while there's interest, I'm afraid my disability will cause the interest to fail. He's very athletic and I struggle due to my handicap. We have a strong sex drive but how do I get more out of relationship?

Answer: If your Aries is younger and very "energetic", then that is good for you, but you want "more", then I would predict that a female Cap with a disability would be heartfelt, earnest, serious, with a good sense of humor and a wonderful long term companion. Your question is what is "more". I could propose that an Aries male is a younger Aries male, but how could I know? Start conversations. Talk about broad topics. Get to know him more. Offer serious sides of yourself. Aries are energetic fireballs. Caps are earnest, thoughtful, serious-minded people. Is he deep, complex, educated? Are you his fling? Test the waters of heart mind and soul. Is he worthy of you? Is he real?

Question: I'm a 29 year old male Capricorn. My girlfriend is a 29 year old Aries. We've both had some issues. We're both sober now and working towards our goals. We live apart but we talk every day through multiple formats. We both love each other and want a future together, but we both have reservations. We want to move in together soon, and begin our lives with both feet on the right path. Is it possible to get over the past and move forward? Or are we fighting against the tide?

Answer: You both sound like your past experiences and current ages would fit reconciliation and "starting over". There are two "Saturn Returns" that occur around 28 -29 and later around 56, The return of Saturn to its Birth Position means it is a TIME FOR GROWTH. This is an excellent time for growth and improvement. IF you have FORGIVEN each other AND yourselves, you probably have a shot. I would count on it.. Don't waste your Soul work. You have invested more than you even know in each other, Of course, you must try again.. Cap can be unforgiving and morose. That's because they really want life to work! Give your Aries woman a chance. She's strong and fiery. and she needs an UPBEAT Cap. Go to her with an uplifting plan, and "get on your knees" and give her your heart, even if its the 10th time.

Question: I’m an Aries sun, Pisces moon, Gemini rising. All these Capricorn boys are coming out of the woodwork when it comes to me, what exactly is it that has them lining up?

Answer: "All these Capricorn boys" (if what you say is true) are tuning into A. Your pure highly charged Aries energy. Capricorns love sparkling females who also look like they can balance finances. B. Your Gemini Rising adds luster, an easy smile, a quick wit and a lack of shyness. "My Gawd".. You have the Capricorn at hello. C. Then, your holiness of Pisces coats your subconscious with special subtle and neon cultures of DEEP UNDERSTANDING. Only advice for you is interview well! Capricorns are the best business guys in the Zodiac
