You know, the bumper sticker. The one with the two stick figures holding hands, their little family of straight-lined children trailing behind them. Personally, the only time I’d plant this little family on my car is if I could add the T-Rex stick figure eating them in half, but alas, not everyone is as cynical as me.
And in this case, with Taurus and Capricorn each representing the adults in this stick figure family, cynicism is the opposite of what you’re experiencing. Your mutual practicality means that you’ve both excelled at being alone, and you definitely questioned if you’d find that perfect match, as you know full well that perfection is a term created from unrealistic Hollywood rom-coms.
You both decided you’d be just fine being with a significant other who met your core needs. You don’t own rose-colored glasses after all. Love doesn’t work like the movies. And you both one hundred percent believed that until the day your paths crossed.
Taurus, you’re the type of person who becomes so rooted in your ways, change doesn’t even cross your mind. And this is also the case when it comes to relationships.
If you’ve been single for a long time, you’ve probably developed a routine that works for you, and the idea of bringing someone else into your life and weaving their patterns with yours is not just disconcerting but slightly terrifying.
All the changes that have happened in your life have been deliberate and gradual, and despite the pressure your mom puts on you at every Thanksgiving to make her a grandmother, you just can’t get on board with bringing someone into your life just to please someone else.
That’s not to say that you don’t want love. You’re human, after all, and a sensual being with needs. You’d just prefer to take your time with things and get to know someone at your own pace.
Capricorn, you’re ruled by the planet Saturn, which represents wisdom and discipline. As an earth sign, you’re grounded and stable.
You’re a realist, but that doesn’t mean you stop yourself from dreaming big. If anything, you know how to give yourself realistic goals and understand how to break down your desires into pieces you can easily accomplish.
Your symbol, the sea-goat, represents your persistence and unbreakable spirit. People often come to you for advice about pursuing their dreams, and when you tell them it’s just a matter of putting one foot in front of the other, you struggle to process why not everyone sees how easy of a process that can be.
Your practicality makes it so you have no problem playing it safe. Life isn’t about risks for you. It’s about creating a safe place where you can grow and be happy while pursuing the things you desire.
Family is important to you, but you’re fiercely independent and don’t want to burden anyone you love with your struggles. You’ll always figure it out.
Taurus and Capricorn in Friendship
As two determined earth signs, you two understand the power of moving toward your goals. Capricorn, you’re a cardinal sign, meaning you’re a natural leader, an ‘idea’ person people look up to. Although you’re grounded, you’re always looking toward the future.
Taurus, as a fixed sign, you’re the stabilizer of the Zodiac, bringing a focused energy to your friendships. These differences complement each other well, especially considering you both carry a realistic approach to life.
Friend Date: Mani/Pedi or Streaking on the Beach at Midnight?
You two have more in common than most pairs in the Zodiac, not just because of your values but also your shared interests.
You’re both much more interested in having a quiet night at home discussing your goals than you are in going out and spending time with strangers. You likely met through a common hobby or were introduced by mutual friends who knew, without a doubt, you two would get along.
Your friends perceive you both as the more serious in your group and when you two get together, you’ll find you don’t need to be doing anything active to enjoy each other’s company. You both cut to the chase in life and don’t have time for drama, and as a result, you find that you will develop respect quickly in your friendship.
Friend-Fection: Keep It on the Dl or Text ‘Love Ya Biatch?’
Taurus, you’ve always seen yourself as one of the less emotional friends in your group–until you met Capricorn. You’re grounded, Taurus, and skilled at processing your emotions before expressing your feelings about things, but Capricorn takes things to another level.
Capricorn, you’re so driven and focused that you don’t have time to deal with the nitty-gritty emotional level of things. If your friends get angry with you, or vice versa, you prefer to offer a quick apology and then move on with your life. You value your friendships, but you don’t have time for petty drama.
Taurus, meanwhile, your emotional intelligence is a bit more developed, and you understand that sometimes it’s necessary to have those conversations with friends, even if you don’t like it. This is something you will be able to help your Capricorn friend understand if given the right platform to express yourself.
Dating Advice: Send His Name or Send His Social?
Capricorn, dating for you isn’t about finding love. It’s an opportunity to meet new people who might offer value to your life. Because if the people in your life aren’t adding anything, then what’s the point?
You have no problem expressing your thoughts and opinions about first dates to your friends, but you will do so in a very nonsensical, clear-cut, unemotional way that your friends may find static and stiff.
All your friends, that is, except Taurus. Taurus, you get it. You’re not just patient, you’re realistic. Love takes time. If anything, Taurus, you find Capricorn’s ability to talk about things without getting emotional admirable.
You understand their sensibility, but you struggle with the ease of their communication and can learn a thing or two from your Capricorn friend about expressing yourself to your friends.
Taurus and Capricorn in Love
No two signs share as many core values as you two do. You have your differences, but your similarities have the potential to shape your partnership into great friends and even better lovers.
You have the same approach to life: your mutual practicality allows you two to have the same approach to saving money, to pursuing dreams, and to understanding what’s important in a relationship. Neither of you are fans of change, so when you both arrive at a place of stability in your relationship, you’re more than happy to ride that wave for the rest of your life.
The First Date: Roses or KFC?
It wouldn’t be surprising if you two started as friends, and if you did, your friend group has probably predicted that you two would end up together before you did. You two understand each other more than anyone else, your shared patience and driven sensibility giving you endless things to discuss.
Capricorn, you’re constantly on the move, giving yourself one hundred and ten percent to everything you do, including your personal relationships. This can be tiring sometimes, but not when you’re with Taurus.
Taurus, even more grounded than you, has the ability to calm your anxieties and bring you back down to earth, and remind you to relax and appreciate the small joys in life, while you Capricorn will inspire Taurus to keep moving forward even if change seems frightening.
You probably won’t figure out all these things on the first date, but you’ll be fast to discover that you’re shared interests and calming vibes are a connection neither of you have experienced before.
Love Language Do’s and Don’ts: A Dealbreaker?
This is where you two thrive in a relationship. Neither of you are big talkers while analyzing the personal issues in your relationship. You both are internal processors, and if disagreements arise, you’re more likely to take some time to yourself to process your emotions before coming back together to discuss it.
Taurus, you’re accustomed to your partners needing verbal reassurance which can often push you to a breaking point when you can’t offer them the clarity they need, but with Capricorn, you often find yourself doing more of the talking.
Capricorn will express their feelings directly and then move on immediately, whereas you Taurus need a bit more time to move past things. This is because Capricorn is more focused on the future, and you, Taurus, are more accustomed to being in the present. Still, you can’t beat this balance, Taurus encouraging patience in Capricorn, and Capricorn encouraging Taurus to look forward to the future.
Either way, you both will express your love through action–whether it’s acts of service, physical touch, or quality time, and that works just great for the two of you. Because Taurus hates changes, you will stay when things get rough.
And Capricorn, a natural problem solver, won’t back away from issues. You’ll both work together to fix things and because you’re so similar and have so much respect for one another, it won’t feel like work.
Sexy Time: Slow and Steady or Chompin’ at the Bit?
Neither of you will be fast to hop into the bedroom. You both prefer communication and connection before you open the door to intimacy, mainly because you both are searching for something with a stable, loyal, long-term commitment.
Taurus, you’re not super aggressive in making the first move, and Capricorn, you prefer people to do that. But once you two arrive at this point, the comfort and connection will be instant.
Taurus, you’re incredibly sensual, and Capricorn, you enjoy showing off your moves in the bedroom. Your intimacy will allow both of you to relax and help root you in the present Capricorn, while encouraging you Taurus, to step outside of your comfort zone.
It doesn’t get much better than this in friendship or in love.
- 1- Get AWAY from me
- 2- Who are you again?
- 3- I tolerate you
- 4- You’re pretty cool
- 5- Let’s gooooo!
What if I Love This Person?
Then get those stick figure stickers ready because you two will be together for a very long time.
