Love Horoscopes: Zodiac Sign Compatibility For Aries And Capricorn

When Aries and Capricorn find romance, things will never be boring. Find out how love between these signs can work.

While there are many other determining factors for a love relationship and its success or failure, it's always fun to check out that special someone's zodiac sign.

In the case of an Aries attracted to a Capricorn, this is a very difficult match. A traditional astrologer would tell the couple involved that their suns are square - which means the major stumbling block for this relationship is deciding who's going to be boss! An in-depth chart analysis might reveal mitigating aspects, such as a Sun-Moon interchange, but let's look at just the sun sign interactions.

For an Aries male attracted to a Capricorn female:

An Aries male is bossy, demanding, hasty and usually quick-tempered. He has a short fuse: but after he lets off steam, he's also prompt to forgive and forget. He can't understand why other people aren't as eager to kiss and make up after the dust settles as he is - but the Capricorn woman can hold resentments for a long time. She's slow to anger, but cool and deadly when she finally loses her temper. If she's his superior at work - well, both of them should likely make a career change anyway.

These signs have a hard time getting together in the first place. Aries and Capricorn are Cardinal signs, which means making important decisions and judgments are what their brain cells do 24 hours a day. Being an entrepreneur or having one's own business is certainly a goal for each of them from an early age.

She can be attracted to his dashing, "˜knights of old' mentality. After all, how many men do you meet nowadays who blithely assume they can slay a dragon, lead the charge into battle and successfully find a new trade route - all before lunch? His high energy level is attractive too, and he can be very sexy: an Aries male thoroughly enjoys showing off.

He probably is drawn to her quiet manner and classic beauty - think of Marlene Dietrich's glamour. The Capricorn lady may have a seat on the stock exchange, but she speaks enough French to order her favorite perfume while on a business trip overseas. That beautiful ring on her finger is either an heirloom or she bought it for herself. She's not the type to brag or gossip.

He enjoys the chit-chat around the water cooler at the office - and can contribute some pretty ribald stories, too. He may give the impression that he wants an entire harem all to himself. But this is part of his façade, because an Aries male still believes in that fairy-tale "˜one true love' forever and ever - and he gets really upset when he can't seem to find that single perfect woman. He's also loud, electrically charged and impossible to ignore.

She's aloof, well-groomed, well-exercised and well-cared-for - even if she has to do it herself. She doesn't tolerate goofiness or bad manners, or being interrupted while she's working by the Aries male telling her the latest Hollywood headline. She wants a man in her life as dessert - not the centerpiece. The major partner in any Capricorn woman's life is her career. Think of a queen. Her main duty is ruling her country, and then paying attention to her royal consort. An Aries male doesn't take kindly to being just a consort. He wants to be the king.

This fictional couple might date for a while, but the chances of a lasting relationship are really around zero.

Now let's look at the flip side: Capricorn male and Aries female.

A Capricorn male could be drawn to an Aries female because of her flamboyance and total enjoyment of life. She doesn't just get in a blue mood - she's totally, terribly devastated by whatever disaster happened in her life - and then she recovers in two or three days. However, if it's a love affair gone wrong, she really is inconsolable.

She's blunt, honest and likes to beat him at whatever game or sport they indulge in, which secretly amuses the Capricorn man. She might be interested in him because he represents a safe harbor - even though when Ms. Aries gets mad at him, she'll rudely tell him what a backwater, ho-hum lover he is - and then expect him to forget the insult when she calls him next. And she may indeed do most of the pursuing. She enjoys the chase as much as any male Aries does, figuring that anyone she's interested in has to be special and unusual.

That quiet, staid man dining at an elegant restaurant, nicely dressed and wearing his old school tie is likely a Capricorn. He travels only with reluctance, on business. He doesn't enjoy going to see what's around the corner simply for the sake of something new. He has a few old friends and visits his family regularly. Loud colors and music give him headaches. He needs a partner who's willing to be the perfect "˜corporate wife.' He likes his life orderly and well-regulated, with a work schedule, an errands list, and probably even love-making listed in his day timer.

An Aries woman is attracted to men of power with nerves of steel. She's more apt to try driving a race car or sky diving, instead of going to the theatre or opera. If she's bored, she's going to tell the Capricorn so, and he'd better listen to her, or she'll call her own cab to go home. She's passionate about many things, whether it's abandoned kids or cats, the latest fad, her career or her love life. She wants to have a man in her life that is as strong-willed as her.

This couple should just enjoy each other's unique qualities, and not try to make it last. There's no sense struggling to overcome the odds.
