Aries' compatibility with Capricorn: Love and relationships

These natives will need to overcome their differences in order to have a successful relationship

Both the Aries and the Capricorn have a determination to succeed. However, they have different ways of achieving this. The Aries is impulsive and will not plan things out beforehand, whereas the Capricorn must have everything mapped out before starting work.

There may also be emotional differences between this pair, as the Capricorn does tend to bottle things up. This will not sit comfortably with the more impetuous Aries, and a few harsh words might be required.

Even more, they will be issues over who takes the dominant role, as both tend to bring leadership qualities to the table. There could be financial problems as well because Aries can be more of a spender whilst Capricorn will have an eye on the future.

If they can possibly overcome their differences, it will most likely be the Capricorn that takes the upper hand and this would certainly help in controlling the financial aspects. Furthermore, Aries likes to take risks, whereas Capricorn will often prefer to play it safe.

If there is an initial spark between the pair, they could well enjoy some exciting love making, as is often the case where there are clear personality differences. The Capricorn may be attracted by the bold and confident Aries, but will need to relax and let down their guard if this pairing is to get off the ground. The Aries has to be able to appreciate the more calculating and meticulous ways of the Capricorn without trying to overrun them.

Equally, the Capricorn must tread a fine line between offering guidance to the Aries without trying to control them. The Aries must be allowed to retain that inner freedom if they are to express themselves fully. As soon as they start to feel that their natural instincts are being curbed, this relationship will be going nowhere.

Can Aries and Capricorn form a good team?

Both the Aries and the Capricorn are highly motivated individuals who can be very resourceful in pursuing their goals. Unfortunately, they may go about it in a completely different way. Aries is focused on a more impulsive and individual approach, whilst the Capricorn looks for structure and stability. If the Capricorn is able to guide the Aries towards a more organized path without significantly detracting from their sense of fun, then they may be able to form a respectable team.

By the same token, the Aries can provide the Capricorn with a more dynamism and spontaneity in their lives rather than breaking everything down into a step-by-step plan. Indeed, the way the Capricorn approaches life is likely to prove far too methodical for the Aries. The problem is that they are starting from opposite ends of the spectrum and will need to adapt quite markedly to make this relationship work.
