The element of Earth and Fire
Fire can help Earth to learn to take risks and take life less seriously and Earth can restrain Fire’s more outrageous and unrealistic impulses. At best, this combination can be great for business as well as personal relationships, with Fire providing the vision and enthusiasm necessary for any project, and Earth attending to the details and getting things organized. No prizes for guessing who will wash the dishes or change the nappies, though.
Aries like to rush headlong into things while Capricorn likes to follow a more carefully planned out path. Aries soon forgives and forgets, whereas Capricorn can bear a grudge over a long period of time. On the plus side, both signs being Cardinal, they are not likely to be short on ambition or knowing exactly what they want out of life. There could be some degree of competitiveness, but if they agree on who handles what, this could be a highly rewarding and profitable partnership.
Cautious Capricorn is likely to disapprove of Leo’s extravagant ways and Leo may feel starved of demonstrations of affection, since Capricorn is reserved emotionally. Their choice in personal style is also vastly different: Capricorn going for a classical elegance, while Leo preferring something lavish, with warm, rich colours. However, despite these differences, there is likely to be an attraction and mutual respect between the two. They are likely to make great partners in business, with Leo’s enthusiastic flamboyance winning over prospective clients and Capricorn’s earthy practicality making sure that orders are carried out to the letter.
Sagittarius constantly likes to explore new horizons while Capricorn likes to follow a more well‐trodden path. Sagittarius soon forgets, whereas Capricorn can bear a grudge over a long period of time. Capricorn looks at life rather seriously while Sagittarius is forever taking an optimistic and jovial view on things. Capricorn could end up viewing Sagittarius as irresponsible and inconsiderate, while Sagittarius might regard Capricorn as gloomy and restrictive. On the plus side, they can be a winning team if they’re willing to learn from each other and appreciate the other sign’s positive qualities. Capricorn could learn about extending its horizons, while Sagittarians can get inspired to see projects to a successful completion.
Same element signs
Normally each sign gets along easily with the other signs in the same element. So Capricorn will find fellow Earth signs Virgo and Taurus congenial. However, ease is not necessarily a good thing. One of the secrets of a successful relationship is to have enough in common, but enough that is different.
The element of Earth with Earth: Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn
Responsible, realistic and totally practical, Earth types are often good with their hands. Money, material security and comfort are very important to them. They are realistic about relationships and know that they are never perfect, but can also appreciate the fact that being together has many practical and financial advantages. Their down‐to‐earth approach can keep their partner good‐humoured and sane, even during more stressful times. This is a great combination for making things work – in the home, garden or the world at large –since both partners want tangible results.
These two are ideal parent material in the conventional sense as they are equally concerned with security, stability and providing material comforts. By nature both are patient, ambitious and practical minded. Capricorn knows how to make money and Taurus likes to spend it on the finer things in life. Both signs benefit from association as Taurus supports Capricorn’s ambitions and Capricorn is the reliable partner that Taurus is looking for.
This could be a highly rewarding and profitable partnership as the two energies complement each other. Both signs are conscientious, meticulous and take responsibilities seriously. When it comes to practical matters neither one is likely to run away from taking charge and dealing with things efficiently. Capricorn is ambitious and Virgo is the perfect helpmate in aiding them to make their dreams come true. There may be a little too much emphasis on the mundane things in life and both signs need to occasionally let their hair down and just have fun!
This combination has the makings of a classic ‘power couple’, with both partners concerned with ambition and material success. When it comes to dedication, hard work and sheer will power there are few to match Capricorns. They prefer to earn their right to the good things in life and are willing to take one step at a time to reach the top of the ladder. This is a great partnership for setting up a stable home and providing for a family. The only downside is that with all the focus on responsibility, duty and achievement, there is little room for spontaneity, adventure and fun. These two need to take a break now and then, both physically on trips away and more importantly, on a mental level, by learning to switch off and letting go of mundane matters.
The element of Earth with Air
While Earth may consider that Air is too heady and impractical and Air can view Earth as materialistic and unprincipled, this cool, dry combination does have its upside. Neither of you gets angry or ruffled without good reason and there is the potential for much humour and light‐hearted banter between you. If you put your heads together, you can come up with lots of practical ideas, both for having fun and for making the world a better place.
This is a match of contrasting personalities; Geminis love the thrill of variety and find it whard to focus on one thing for long, while Capricorn likes to follow a more carefully planned out path. Geminis are generally not too emotional, whereas Capricorns can have deep feelings and if they bear a grudge, it can carry over a long period of time. On the plus side, each sign supplies what the other lacks – Capricorn providing security and ambition, while Gemini being full of inventive ideas and adventure. The serious Capricorn can’t help being captivated by child‐like Gemini, while Gemini feels safe in the company of responsible Capricorn.
It is said that Capricorns knows how to make money and Librans shows them how to spend it! Libra loves the finer things in life and Capricorn, though serious minded, also likes things are of lasting beauty. Their styles will be complementary as Libra goes for elegance and Capricorn for timeless classics. Both are cardinal signs and therefore, ambitious and always on the look out to improve themselves. With Capricorn’s knack of finding the best deals and Libra’s tremendous charm, this couple is likely to be successful in business ventures. The only challenge that they’ll face is that Libra needs romance and demonstrations of love, which don’t come easily to Capricorn. If Capricorn can lighten up and learn to let go and have fun, this will be a strong and stable relationship.
Though both signs are ruled by Saturn, Aquarius has Uranus as its co‐ruler which is a different energy altogether. While Capricorn longs for stability and is willing to work hard to attain it, Aquarius’ prime motivation is a desire for independence and a fascination with all that is new or innovative. The two signs can work well together if both sides can appreciate the other’s unique qualities. Aquarius brings ingenuity, love of adventure and the ability to get along with larger groups while Capricorn contributes practicality, objectivity and reliability to the relationship. For this to work Capricorn needs to remember to inject some excitement to mundane routines and Aquarius needs to be sensitive to Capricorn’s yearning for stability.
The element of Water with Earth
The two of you may not conquer the world, but this combination is great for creating and maintaining a good, warm and comfortable home. You have both the emotional and practical resources required for family life as well as, if you are not careful, for taking on all the burdens of your friends and neighbours. Do try and remember that life can be fun and risk taking can be exciting. Also, talking through problems can, in effect halve them.
An archetypal combination traditionally associated with parenting. Cancer is the sign of the Mother: protective, responsive and nurturing. Devoted to family and loved ones, Cancerians thrive in relationships in which they feel they are needed. They love taking care of someone. Capricorn, on the other hand, is a paternal sign, representing discipline, duty and authority.
Therefore it is not surprising that family life and values are very important to both signs. These two opposing signs can work well in a relationship and especially with children. The typical Cancerian is an excellent homemaker, making sure that everyone is fed, warm and dry, while the Capricorn will induce a dose of realism and discipline so that neither his partner nor his children are too mollycoddled.
Neither gives up easily, so when these two determined signs get together, they can achieve almost anything! Both are cautious when it comes to revealing their feelings initially and are discriminating where personal relationships are concerned. However, of the two Capricorn is more able to have an objective and detached view on things than Scorpio, who has an emotional response. However, there is great durability in this combination, which is also likely to be successful in investments and financial matters.
|Planet||Saturn||Jupiter and Neptune|
Though these two signs have different energies, they are complementary to each other. Pisces the imaginative, mystical dreamer is the perfect foil to Capricorn’s hard, ambitious drive. The water element is to do with sensitivity and the emotional realm whereas the Capricorn’s earth element is to do with practicality and realism. Capricorn provides security and a stable home to Pisces, who brings in romance to the relationship. Pisces is too laid back to compete with Capricorn and is quite content to let them lead. This relationship works as both share a certain reserve and an introspective shyness that masks a deeper depth.
