Love Horoscopes: Zodiac Sign Compatibility For Capricorn And Aquarius

Capricorn and Aquarius are a pair of zodiac signs that are undeniably attracted to one another, but the odds are against them in terms of love compatibility.

He's ruled by Saturn, she's ruled by Saturn and Uranus.He's a Goat, dragging the weight of melancholy conferred by the planet of karma.She's a Waterbearer, endowed with knowingness and yet obeying the erratic laws ordained by the planet of rebellion.The common denominator of Saturn suggests that these two zodiac signs can instantly find unspoken understanding in one another, yet in the end, it seems that the odds are stacked against the pair as a long-term love match.

The basic attraction between Capricorn and Aquarius is based on a never ending game of tug-of-war between the conservative and the innovative.After all, Capricorn is the hardest worker of the entire zodiac, extraordinarily accepting of "the way things work." On the other hand, Aquarius is the revolutionary of the zodiac, unafraid to push for radical change at whatever the risk or outcome.However, like a real game of tug-of-war, it's only fun for a while, and it's certainly not the kind of game you'd like to play for months or years on end!However, there is a great deal of mutual respect between these two signs, as both are able to be honest with themselves as to their respective limitations.Because of this extreme opposition, each has an inherent sense of curiosity about the other that is fueled by a common characteristic: unpredictability.To the keenly observant, Capricorns aren't actually stiff and serious all the time: in fact, they are often beloved for their wry, sardonic sense of humor, which often emerges suddenly out of nowhere.In other words, this is one sign that knows how to crack a joke with a straight face.And it is this sometimes dark, ironic undercurrent that distinguishes Capricorn from other Earth signs and unconsciously attracts Aquarius.Less subtle is the flamboyant unpredictability of Aquarius, whose ability to carry out its wildest visions without the slightest regard for what other people think (very much unlike traditionally-minded Capricorn) likewise gives it an intriguing aura to its partner.In this sense, these two signs are great at keeping one another on their toes.

But is this charm enough to build a lasting love between these odd-couple zodiac neighbors?Unfortunately, more often than not, the answer is no.One major downfall of these signs is a tendency to have difficulty in forming close emotional relationships.Imagine the Goat, steadfast in its work ethic, plodding up the mountain alone as though it were a personal burden to bear.Imagine the Waterbearer with its humanitarian ideals and grand ideas, eager to make all of humanity into its friends, but a bit clueless as to how to deal with real, emotional human beings.What this might translate into, in practical terms, is Capricorn spending late nights or weekends at work, and Aquarius, in typical fashion, not taking it personally and instead habitually going off on its own.Although this mutual respect for independence can work well in friendships, it's more likely to lead to emotional distance, and general havoc, in romantic relationships.Moreover, dignified Capricorn, born to command social status and respect, might not lead the kind of lifestyle that can tolerate Aquarius' love of flagrant unconventionality, occasionally to the fault of being reactionary.

Capricorn and Aquarius are quite easily capable of a tight-knit closeness that borders on the very best of brother-sister relationships.In spite of undeniable attraction, shameless flirting or a brief fling is the most common result of auspicious meetings between these two zodiac signs.
