Virgo and Capricorn: Can It Work?


There are certain people who walk into your life and, like a puzzle piece clicking into place, things just click. You two, Virgo and Capricorn, are those lucky two.

For some signs, it can be detrimental for two people who are similar to spend too much time together but not with you guys. You’ll both have spent the majority of your life feeling a bit like you live on the outside of the rest of society.

There are certain aspects of your joint personalities that other people do not understand, and yet when you two cross paths, you’ll realize the time for explaining or justifying your thoughts and actions will be gone.

You’ll not just relate to each other, you’ll understand the other person’s motivations without having to pull back the curtain and ask why. But does this connection vibe as well romantically as it does platonically? Let’s find out.

Virgo Zodiac Symbol


The mind is an interesting thing. Speaking from experience as a Virgo, when I’m spiraling down that rabbit hole, my mind is a place I wouldn’t wish even my enemies to be. Sounds harsh, I know, but c’mon, Virgo, you know that rumination is your middle name.

Especially when something pans out in a way you didn’t like, and you feel like you’re at fault. It’s one of our flaws, Virgo.

It’s easier to blame ourselves when something goes wrong. My therapist says self-blame is a method of regaining control over an uncontrollable situation, and then add in us being perfectionists? Oh, we’re doomed.

That’s not to say everything is all hopeless, Virgo. We’re earth signs; after all, eventually, we come back to reality and realize that over-analyzing every aspect of our past, present, and future only creates anxiety.

Because we’re mutable signs, we are adaptable, meaning we know how to adjust to change pretty well. But don’t forget, we’re also ruled by Mercury, the planet of communication.

The key to finding happiness for us, Virgos, is not just learning to communicate our needs to other people but also to show up for yourself as well.

Capricorn Zodiac Symbol


Capricorn, like us Virgos, you’re also an earth sign, and like us, you’re grounded and hardworking, holding yourself to high standards.

However, unlike Virgos, you’re a cardinal sign, which means that you don’t wait for the situations to change before you react to them.

No, you create the situations that work for you. You’re a go-getter, always taking the initiative to get what you want out of life.

Success is important to you, and you possess a unique ability to separate your emotions from your logic, something other signs in the Zodiac are either envious of or confused by.

This can make you come off as cold and abrasive, but in reality, you’re just very skilled at controlling your own feelings and not letting them control you. You’re self-sufficient and practical and have no problem being alone.

In fact, you’ll only let people into your life if it enhances it in some way, and if you do eventually open that door, you’re as loyal as they come, and you’ll offer love freely, but only for those who deserve it.

You don’t have time for games or disrespect, and you’ll happily shut off those feelings so you can move forward in your life without someone dragging you down.

Virgo and Capricorn in Friendship

The two of you have big goals in life and believe you can achieve them if you work hard enough. You’re both grounded and practical, and you’ll be relieved to have a friend who knows they can accomplish their dreams if they just continue moving in the right direction.

You both have introverted aspects and enjoy the comfort of routines and will find that you share similar interests in how you prefer to spend your time.

Unlike a lot of your friends, you two will never get bored with repetition because, for you two, it’s less about what you’re doing and who you’re doing it with.

Friend Date - Calendar

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

This is where you two will click. You probably met through shared classes in school, mutual friends, or through a joint hobby.

You’re both interested in self-improvement and will lift each other up when you discover that the other person is attempting to learn something new.

You’ll be inclined to stay inside over going out, and while your other friends will find this boring, you two will find low-key nights relaxing.

It’s likely you two will fall into the same pattern and spend so much time together that before you know it, your friendship has become one of the best in your life.

Friend-Fection Icon

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

You two will have no problem communicating with one another, which is something you definitely need, Virgo.

As an external processor, you need to get your thoughts out of your head to process them, and Capricorn will have no problem listening to you.

You, Capricorn, understand how to shut off your emotions and are quite skilled at being there for a friend without absorbing all of their stressors, which has been an issue with friends in the past, Virgo.

Capricorn, while you don’t rely on communication as much as Virgo, you are loyal to the friends who you respect, and you will have no problem initiating conversation if things get difficult between you two, which is probably unlikely.

You’ll get along well enough that disagreements will be far and few in between, and it’s more likely that your conversations will deal with motivating each other to pursue your dreams.

Dating Advice Icon

Dating Advice: Send His Name or Send His Social?

Love is really not the first thing on either of your minds regarding what you want out of life. Especially you, Capricorn.

Success is imperative to motivating your day-to-day life, and you will only open yourself to others if they enhance your life.

Virgo, you tend to be a little more emotional in your relationships, and this is where you can over-analyze things a bit too much.

Your Capricorn friend will be a breath of fresh air to vent to about relationships because they will be so grounded; they will stop you, Virgo, from making mountains out of molehills.

Capricorn, it’s unlikely that you’ll vent to your friends about your relationships.

In fact, they probably won’t even know you’re dating someone until you bring them to game night.

If you’re inviting someone new into your personal life, it’s because there’s something special about them, and when that happens, your friends like Virgo will go out of their way to incorporate this new person into your lives.

Virgo and Capricorn in Love

You two likely started as friends, and if you did, it probably took a while to get to this point.

Virgos worried about losing you as a friend, and Capricorn, you needed to consider the pros and cons before going on your first date.

If there’s a physical attraction between you two, you probably tried to ignore it until you just couldn’t do it anymore.

If you’re strangers, you’ll discover an effortless connection and know that this is someone you could have a future with as lovers, but also someone who could be your friend.

Loyalty is something you both value and seek out in your relationships, and you’ll have no problem developing that connection.

First Date Icon

The First Date: Roses or KFC?

Your first date will definitely not be a spontaneous adventure.

It’s likely you chose a quiet brewery, a cafe down the street, somewhere where the music isn’t too loud so you both can hear each other talk.

And talk, you definitely will. Your shared interests will create an interesting spark, but you’ll both discover that you’re motivated in a way other people in your life are not.

You have big goals and plans on how to achieve them, and you’ll find that you will inspire and uplift each other to the point that being around one another will become not just enjoyable but productive.

Neither of you has to hide who you are, and because of that, trust will be effortless.

Love Language Icon

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

This is the only time issues may arise between you two.

Where your differing communication styles were less of a problem in your friendship, it can create roadblocks if you don’t learn to accept if you’re not careful.

Virgo, you need to express your feelings out loud to your partner, and while Capricorn will listen, they may not always give you the emotional feedback you desire.

Capricorn, this is where you will need to learn how to incorporate your emotional side into your discussions and not separate your head and your heart.

Virgo, you will need to understand how to listen to Capricorn’s needs and be patient that they depend more on acts of service than words of affirmation.

If you two can practice this, you’ll find that your relationship will only grow stronger.

Sexy Time Icon

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

When it comes to the first time, you’re both a little reserved, and it may take some time to get to the point where you’re fully comfortable in the bedroom.

It may be a little awkward at first. Virgo, you may have a guard up, and Capricorn, you know that you only trust people with time.

Because you both value loyalty, your connection will need to develop before you can truly enjoy learning about one another in an intimate way.

But that will happen, don’t worry. When you discover you trust one another, Virgo, you’ll drop your guard, and Capricorn, you’ll be walking on a steady foundation, a new place in your relationship, and sex will become something harmonious and effortless.

The Verdict?

If you can accept that your communication styles are different, this will be a loyal bond, a friendship, and a relationship that will prove beneficial and uplifting and one set to evolve, grow, and blossom for the rest of your life.
