Capricorn + Pisces: Do They Make a Good Match?
Capricorn is realistic and down-to-earth, and Pisces is a dreamer living in an imaginary world. That's why this pair naturally attracts each other. Capricorn often wants to hide its real feelings out of fear of being vulnerable, while Pisces knows how to show its feelings gracefully.
Pisces is one of the most gentle souls, and this can help bring Capricorn's real self to the surface. I find Pisces to be one of the most charming signs of the zodiac. They are dedicated to unconditional love. Capricorn, on the other hand, does what it can to be a provider, to focus on what is real, and to save what it can.
Capricorn season is at the beginning of winter, so it has the same energy that makes us want to be reclusive and hibernate. Pisces season is at the end of winter, when we can hardly handle cold and snow anymore and are ready for a new season.
This may be why Pisces has so much emotion, and it also may be why Pisces is so sacrificial. Pisces is the last sign of the zodiac year, so many other signs considered it to be a mentor. They are ready to die for what they love so that new life can come into being. It is the most giving zodiac sign, and it is also the wisest because of its teacher-like soul.
Winter Signs Get Along
Winter signs are revolutionaries. They think and act a lot different than spring, summer, and fall signs. Winter signs want to challenge the status quo and find out what is real. They want to find out why people and the planet are the way that they are.
Capricorn is somewhat shocked by this and need help understanding why we approach death. This is because the sign falls at the beginning of winter, so they often ponder why the year's energy is fading. Pisces, on the other hand, has a more positive outlook. They see death as more of a door (or even simulation). They do not not to fear death, but rather embrace it, because life is more powerful than death. What's great about winter signs is that they are all looking for authenticity.
I think Capricorn, Aquarius, and Pisces scrutinize the relationship a lot before committing to it. They all want to make sure that the relationships they have are real.
Pisces, in particular, needs to do this because they are prone to getting themselves into a toxic relationship. Pisces wants to give and give and give, but sometimes this makes them vulnerable to abuse. That's why they need a partner that understands boundaries and can give them some protection. Without good judgement, Pisces can be a martyr for the devil—which is never a good idea.
What Pisces and Capricorn Want From a Relationship
Capricorn wants to create a successful world in this life. Capricorn respects life so it wants to make the best out of life as a gesture of love to it. This is why Capricorn scrutinizes its partners—they want to make sure it has the best available match for the long haul. They want someone who fits its vision for a family and for its career.
A Capricorn can be won over with time, so don't panic, Pisces. If you put too much pressure on a Capricorn you might scary them away it. Capricorn would be incredibly sad to breakup with someone it believes is a strong, wondrous match. So don't take your Capricorn for granted! And don't take your Pisces for granted. You are both wonderful people who show us the importance of coming together for a bigger picture. If you end up having children. . .they will be lucky.
How Capricorn Sees Love
Capricorn accepts love in all its expressions. It is practical about what life has to offer. It's connected to the earth—smelling its scents, hearing its sounds, and walking among its terrain. They are serious folks. They realize what life is, they accept it, and they live it. They don't just dream about it.
Pisces can encourage Capricorn to dream bigger. Capricorn helps Pisces to see reality as it is. Capricorn can be emotionally detached, while also being tender and loving.
Capricorn is the 10th and Pisces is the 12th. The signs get softer as you move closer to the 12th house. I find it helpful when two signs come together that are in the top half of the zodiac or the bottom. I think they relate to each other better and have similar temperaments.
Capricorn will take their relationship seriously. They will scrutinize the relationship before committing or even dating. Pisces will like Capricorn because it can cling to them, and Capricorn will take Pisces seriously. As an earth sign, they are loyal. They also help Pisces build boundaries. Water signs don't like to have boundaries; they like to go with the flow and try everything. . .and this can become a problem for them. Water signs sometimes play so much into their emotions and intuition that they do not consider the consequences. They don't focusing on what will happen after their actions.
They Are Both Old Souls in Their Own Ways
Capricorn can be an old soul. You know those hipsters who wear their grandparent's clothes? That's a Capricorn. A Pisces can be an old soul too, but they can also be incredibly childlike. They have an energy that's pure and refined.
Capricorn can prioritize practicality over feelings, so it is important to remind your Capricorn how you feel, ask them how they are feeling, and help them to relax regarding work and plans. They need to remember that having sparks and passion in their life supports their work life and makes it stronger.
Capricorn wants to control their emotions and keep it in check, whereas Pisces wants to open up and let their emotions flow freely. This exchange could be good or bad for the two depending on how they play their cards. Capricorn will need to be open to being vulnerable, and Pisces will need to slow down their emotions to see where they end up going.
Capricorn will give Pisces the foundation it needs to grow, and Pisces will give Capricorn the space to finally think and be open about their more weird, eclectic side. Capricorn will love Pisces because the latter has a quality that the former doesn't have naturally.
Capricorns can be workaholics, but they can also be very traditional family partners. They make for great moms and dads. They are caretakers and providers. They want to be appreciated for what they do. They want to know that they have prepared their children well for the world outside the home. Pisces wants to raise wise children who are capable of liberating the world. This couple likely will be great at raising children while also attending to their own needs, growing, and challenging each other as they age.
Pisces Needs to Live Up to Capricorn's High Standards
Capricorn has very high standards. Pisces will need to refine themselves in advance in order come off as a good catch. Capricorn will judge you by the same standards they judge themselves. They will expect you to be impressive, worthy of their time, and worthy of their interest.
Capricorn would hate to fail, even when it comes to relationships.They don't want to be seen as big losers or as incapable of holding down a foundation for others. They want to fulfill their own excellence while also giving others the chance to be excellent.
Pisces can just be themselves around Capricorn. By being sweet, gentle, and loving, you'll win over a Capricorn who values those nurturing qualities. I don't find Capricorns to be very confrontational, although they can get emotionally overwhelmed from time to time. Sometimes they sit on their emotions too long, which can cause a blowout.
