Capricorn and Capricorn: Can This Relationship be Successful?


The mighty sea goat. Oh, how you storm forward, head locked, horns pointed, ready to conquer your goals, and–wait, what? Oh, that’s right. Sea goats don’t exist. Not in this Universe anyway. And we’re talking about the stars here, folks! Mythological creatures exist in the realm of space. after all, the Greeks–who originally created the word ‘zoidiakos’ (translated to Zodiac) believed the stars held the spirits of loved ones who had passed.

So stretch your imagination with me and let’s look up at the sky at Capricorn’s symbol, the sea goat, a creature with the body of a goal and the tail of a fish. This combination represents Capricorn’s abilities to dip their toes into two realms: both the materialistic and the emotional. While Capricorns are an earth sign, and have a general grounded nature, their symbol, a creature born of the earth but capable of diving into the sea, shows that you Capricorn may possess the emotional sensitivities of a water sign.

Except, Capricorn, because you’re so private, it’s very unlikely you’ll share this side of yourself to just anyone. There’s one person you’ll show yourself to. Let me give you a hint: it will be the reflection staring back at you in the sea. Fellow Capricorns, no one will understand you as much as the person who shares your sign.

Capricorn Zodiac Symbol


Your ruling planet is Saturn, the planet of rules and boundaries. Routines are important to you, Capricorn, but surprisingly, despite your static and sometimes stiff preferences in your day-to-day life, you’re not a fixed sign. You’re a cardinal sign, the initiator of the Zodiac, the person at the front of the line, ready for the race to start.

And boy do you go after what you want. You sit square in the tenth house of career, and professional success is incredibly important to you. For you, dreams are pointless until you have a plan to accomplish them, in which case they become achievable goals. Every step you take has purpose, and you’ll watch where you go to ensure you don’t trip.

You’re ambitious and grounded, and because you’re an earth sign, you have a calm demeanor, one that keeps you even-tempered as long as you’re headed toward your desires.

Friends are important to you, and you’re incredibly loyal to them, but you don’t just invite anyone into your inner circle. You don’t have time for large groups, plus you’ve found the more people you let in, the more drama that unfolds in your life. Anything that can knock you off your path is something you will avoid at all costs. As a result, you can appear guarded and cold, but you’re really just logical and upfront, and every other sign is too emotional to see that. Still, you have those water signs tendencies.

Although your heart takes a backseat to your head, you care deeply about the people you bring into your life, and you’ll never break a promise to someone you’re loyal to. You’re a natural leader who probably learned to run before you could crawl, and as an initiator, you won’t hesitate to take charge and set off after your goals.

Capricorn and Capricorn in Friendship

Capricorn, you’re the person in the corner at the party wondering what the hell you’re doing there. Not only are you wasting time when you could be working, you have closer friends you’d rather be spending your free time with. If you’re a Capricorn reading this–which is probably unlikely because you’re probably still working–you’re most likely rolling your eyes. Sea-goat? Please, I’m a GOAT–The Greatest of ALL Time.

That’s not to say you’re a full-fledged narcissist; you just know how to get things done. And that’s because you work for it, and you put in the time and effort to make it happen. You don’t like it when your unemployed friend complains about where their life is–and then sit on their couch and watch Netflix instead of going out to look for jobs. And you’re not afraid to relay those words directly to said friend. As a result, you can come off as condescending. Not all of your friends understand you, and you don’t particularly care; life is too short to waste it on people like them.

Still, it would be nice to have some people in your corner. And that’s why, when you meet your fellow Capricorn, suddenly everything changes. Your eyes open, your impatience settles, and you no longer have to justify and explain your opinions. For once in your life, your friendship is just easy. And knowing you, Cap, once you open your doors and invite someone in, you’ll go out of your way to show them your loyalty and not let them go.

Friend Date - Calendar

Friend Date: Mani/Pedi or Streaking on the Beach at Midnight?

When the time finally comes when you meet that person you want to let into your life, your guard drops and your personality shines. Behind that abrasive exterior is someone who is not just loyal but fun, friendly, and a great listener. There’s a light inside you that shines when you’re comfortable with people around you.

When two Capricorns come together and lower their guards, their matching energy will fire up the room. Still, that doesn’t mean you two are going out and about and hitting the town. Your idea of fun is a good conversation with the people you care about–and you probably lean toward conversations that allow you to analyze your mutual dreams and outline a plan for how you’re going to get there.

It’s exciting to think about where you’re going next, and not all of your friends understand that passion of yours. But the good ones, your Capricorn friend, will understand how your mind works and go out of their way to encourage you to follow your dreams. And you’ll find yourself doing the exact same thing for them.

Friend-Fection Icon

Friend-Fection: Keep It on the Dl or Text ‘Love Ya Biatch?’

You’re not always a straightforward person, Capricorn. Talking about your fondness for your friends is a difficult feat for you, especially with your more emotionally sensitive friends who like to get sappy and cry to you about their problems–or worse, problems they may have with you.

You’d much prefer to show your affection to your friends in actions. You’re the kind of friend who will bake them food when they’re sick or offer to pet sit when they go out of town. It’s the way you express yourself, and those who know you best accept that about you. But when you meet your fellow Capricorn, things will flow differently.

You won’t feel the need to limit the way you communicate; in fact, you’ll find yourself stepping outside of your comfort zone to open up with your Capricorn friend about everything you’re feeling–and it won’t feel odd but easy.

Dating Advice Icon

Dating Advice: Send His Name or Send His Social?

Neither of you really see the point in dating. You’re probably a workaholic for one, but relationships don’t strike you as something you’re always searching for. Sure, if it happens, it happens, but you’re not going to sacrifice your well-being just to bring someone into your life if they’re going to drag you down.

And because you’re a private person, you’re not going to openly brag to your friend about your dating experiences. If you grow feelings for someone, that’s one thing, but even then, you’ll more likely be the person who will bring a new friend to a gathering rather than talk about them in advance.

The only person in your life who you may tell about your new partner or your vulnerable feelings for them will be Capricorn, the exception to the norm in your life.

Capricorn and Capricorn in Love

Your similarities are what made your friendship so solid, but it’s those same commonalities that could create issues in a romantic relationship if you two don’t handle them when they arise. Your core values are so in line that it’s likely you’ll smooth out any disagreements, it may just take a bit of work to open up about the way you’re feeling.

You’re both stubborn in that sense, and expressing your emotions can be difficult, especially when you’re in love. Sometimes, it may be easier to keep to yourself about how you’re feeling, but because you’re ultimately loyal to your partner. If pressed, you will open up, even if it’s a little comfortable.

As cardinal signs, you both will come up with ideas on how to spend your time, how to improve yourself, and what direction you can take to manifest your goals. You truly will be her partners who will value each other’s success. Just remember that even the most stable relationships, especially one as routine as yours, can benefit from a little spontaneity now and again.

First Date Icon

The First Date: Roses or KFC?

Your first date will be effortless, your connection easy, like two puzzle pieces clicking into place. It’s likely you’ll finish each other’s sentences. Because you’re both hardworking and logical, you’ll respect one another’s drive and will offer direct advice that this other Capricorn will embrace.

This has been an issue for dates in the past where your thoughts came off as too blunt. But not with Capricorn. You two will not only enjoy each other’s company but will recognize a calmness in each other’s demeanor that will let that light shine through your guard before you’ve even fully let it down.

That’s how you will know that you’ve found someone special. Just make sure that you two continue to surprise each other with date nights; otherwise, you can get too comfortable in your routine.

Love Language Icon

Love Language Do’s and Don’ts: A Dealbreaker?

It’s much easier for you two to show your affection than express it in words. You’re the kind of partner who will go out of your way to buy your lover gifts, make them dinner, or clean the house.

Talking about the vulnerable aspects of your feelings is difficult, and because you both suffer from this problem, there’s a chance that things could become stale and stiff in your communication if you don’t learn how to speak up.

One of you will have to take the leap eventually, and when you do, you’ll find you’ll be pleasantly surprised how well it will go.

Sexy Time Icon

Sexy Time: Slow and Steady or Chompin’ at the Bit?

You two may be Cardinal signs, the initiators of the Zodiac, but usually only when it comes to getting things done and pursuing your goals. Love always makes things a little more different.

In the same way that you both were waiting for the other to open up and talk about your concerns or fears, you two Capricorns will sit around expecting the other to make the first move sexually.

It’s a conundrum you’ll find yourself in, and it might create some initial frustration or confusion. You’ll either have to talk about it or just make the move, and knowing you two, it will be the latter.

Once that happens, you’ll find your intimacy falls into a nice, comfortable groove. But beware, in the same way you need to add some spontaneity to your dates, don’t shy away from experimenting and trying new things in the bedroom. You might just find you’ll enjoy them.

The Verdict?

This is the one for you, Capricorn. As friends, this person will be your biggest cheerleader and the one who fully understands you. If you continue to work on your communication and add some unexpected fun into your love life, then as partners, this is a relationship bound to last.
