Capricorn, the zodiac’s ambitious sea goat, has a reputation for being a workaholic. They tend to put their career over everything else, including their partner. If they’re in the middle of a big project, there’s a chance you may not hear from them until it’s done. While making money and achieving their goals are important, they still want to have a relationship that lasts. Regardless, when two Capricorns are in a relationship together, there are going to be some challenges. But according to astrologers, this is a pair that can work, and Capricorn and Capricorn’s compatibility shows what they need to do to have a successful partnership.
A Capricorn and Capricorn relationship is one that’s trademarked by honesty and seriousness. “They prioritize their careers and they know how to be supportive of the other's goals,” astrologer Virginia Castiglione tells Bustle. “They form a solid partnership built on transparency and shared projects. They’re practical and would probably be impressed by each other's commitment to their professional lives.”
Two Capricorns may find each other through work or a hobby they both enjoy. If they’re in the same industry, there’s a good chance they may know of each other before they ever meet. “They would likely recognize each other by their work ethic, well-defined personality, and natural authority,” astrologer Jill Loftis of Nuit Astrology, tells Bustle. “As long as admiration — not envy — is the spark, this could be a true power couple.”
Since Capricorns tend to keep their schedules packed, they don’t have a ton of time to play games. If they’re interested in someone, they’ll let them know. As two earth signs, they’ll take their time to get to know each other before making a commitment. They’ll also hold off on making anything official until everything in their life is in a good place. Fortunately, these two understand that about each other and aren’t likely to push for a relationship before either partner is ready.
Capricorn & Capricorn’s Sexual Compatibility
Two Capricorns would feel very comfortable with each other in bed. They tend to view sex as a way to release tension, and not as a way to connect as a couple. So they can have their fun and then go about their usual business five minutes later without offending each other. After all, Capricorn isn’t exactly known for being romantic.
In bed, they’ll find things they both enjoy and will largely stick to that. As Stina Garbis, professional astrologer and psychic, tells Bustle, “Capricorn isn’t usually very kinky, so I don’t think they would embarrass or shock each other in bed with crazy stunts that would normally be a turn-off. [There is] a lot of energy, vigor, and passion with this couple.”
More adventurous Capricorns may be into power plays or BDSM. According to Castiglione, “Their sex lives can be a good way for them to explore their need for dominance and power.”
Capricorn & Capricorn’s Emotional Compatibility
Capricorn is ruled by Saturn, which is the planet of hard work, responsibility, limitations, and restrictions. Because of this, sea goats take relationships very seriously and they tend to be more reserved when it comes to sharing their feelings. You won’t get any big emotional outbursts here, and you won’t find any mushy, over-the-top confessions of love either. According to Garbis, Capricorns are very loving, but demonstrate it through acts of service and fulfilling each other’s needs.
In order for Capricorn to feel emotionally safe in a relationship, respect and healthy boundaries are essential. According to Loftis, Capricorns need the space to pursue their aspirations and ideals. “They might have concerns about the other being unable to slip into the role of supporter and cheerleader,” she says. “If they can walk this line for each other of being supportive but neither of them feeling subservient, they could spur each other to accomplish audacious aspirations with real-world results.”
Capricorn & Capricorn’s Communication
Capricorns are known for being very serious when it comes to communication. According to Garbis, they can be a bit stern and don’t tolerate lies and games. As a result, two Capricorns will be very straightforward in their communication. You can see that through the way they text since they tend to keep things short and to the point, but that’s not to say they don’t have fun conversations. They’ll enjoy chatting about their interests and the big projects they’re working on.
Like all couples, two Capricorns will get into their fair share of arguments. In their case, they may fight over who has control and who’s taking responsibility for what. As Garbis says, both like to “be on top.” Fortunately, Capricorns are known for being practical and would rather find solutions to problems than hold a grudge.
“Capricorns are very reasonable and also know how to forgive when they feel the other party is apologetic enough,” Garbis says. “Typically, they like to make you pay for your sins because responsibility is high on their list of morals and they think you should feel the same way. But two Capricorns together may be able to appreciate each other’s strong moral foundations and may be very accepting of each other’s limitations.”
Capricorn & Capricorn’s Dating Compatibility
During the dating phase, two Capricorns can take a while to decide to make things official, as earth signs tend to be on the slow and steady side. However, Capricorns are also very practical and decisive. If they find someone who checks of all the boxes, “a few snappy coffee dates” and a “three-day weekend adventure” are what it will take to seal the deal, says Garbis.
To outsiders looking in, two practical, work-oriented Capricorns in a relationship may not seem like the most exciting pair. However, stability and routine are things Capricorns value, and having someone they can have a deep philosophical conversation with or a simple chit-chat with can be very comforting to them.
“They are ruled by Saturn which is a planet all about restriction,” Gabis says. “If they are secure, Capricorns will be able to appreciate each other's boundaries. However, if either of them is a little on the wild side or has drama in their past, like past exes, there could be intense jealousy and animosity towards each other.”
Capricorn & Capricorn’s Friendship Compatibility
As far as friendship goes, Capricorn and Capricorn’s compatibility is high. According to Garbis, they’ll have a lot in common and will appreciate each other’s sense of loyalty. Capricorns tend to be the more mature ones in their friend group and will enjoy having someone to vent to or share a look with when some of their other friends do something questionable. “They’re two peas in a pod,” Garbis says.
Capricorns enjoy being physically active and like being out in nature, so they may go on hikes or runs together. Overall, these are two friends who will enjoy being in each other’s company even if no words are spoken between them.
Potential Problems In A Capricorn & Capricorn Relationship
Power and control can be issues this pairing may struggle with. According to Loftis, Capricorns are comfortable being in control and there’s a tendency to treat the relationship like a chess match which is something that can both intrigue and frustrate them. If they get too competitive, they may stop seeing each other as teammates which can be harmful to the relationship over time.
Fights between two Capricorns can also get pretty nasty since sea goats like to win. “If this couple has serious disputes it might be over who is right and who is wrong, and they may have to agree to disagree,” Garbis says. “Not many people would want to be in a room with a quarreling Capricorn couple because it could get emotionally and verbally brutal.” Both partners will need to learn how to put aside their egos for the sake of the relationship if they want it to work.
At the end of the day, it’s essential for Capricorns to make some time for their relationship. Capricorns are very ambitious and will do what they can to support their partner. Although it’s equally important for them to spend quality time with each other without thinking about work. “When they’re together privately, they need to put down the metaphorical ‘sword and shield’ that they use every day in the business world and have trust, honest conversation, and physical connection,” Loftis says.
Are Capricorn & Capricorn A Good Match?
Despite the challenges that come with being with someone of the same sign, two Capricorns in a relationship have what it takes to last a lifetime. They’re both ambitious and will support each other to achieve their dreams. They’re also very loyal and commitment-oriented so once they find each other and establish trust, there’s no going back.
