Sagittarius and Capricorn Compatibility
Sagittarius and Capricorn are quite temperamentally opposed. Easygoing Sagittarius is light-hearted, loves adventure and will bounce boldly into anything new and exciting. Conservative Capricorn is more interested in the long-term outcome, being a strange mixture of ambition and insecurity, with a need to prove things to themselves (and to the world).
Since this is a relationship of opposites, the intense sexual attraction between you will wash over the differences, but when the intensity begins to fade, you may focus on what you each imagine to be the other’s flaws. You might perceive earth-bound Capricorn to be a bit of a stick-in-the-mud (except between the sheets), though your spendthrift soul will certainly appreciate the Goat’s grounded understanding of and access to wealth. Nevertheless, you can awaken in your Goaty lover the desire for some adventure and excitement, while Capricorn can encourage you to harness your energy, pay more attention to details and understand the social niceties that grease the wheels of human contact. Perhaps you, on the other hand, can teach this serious creature to lighten up a little.
However, Capricorn’s demands are not easily satisfied by your flighty, lighthearted approach to love. In the art of lovemaking, Capricorn is enthusiastic and adventurous when aroused, but can be possessive and jealous when threatened. A light-hearted, flirty Sag can sometimes be overwhelmed by the intensity of the Sea-Goat’s passion, coming as it does from beneath such an apparently cool exterior. Your approaches are totally different. Capricorn wants to climb to the top of the mountain, while Sagittarius wants to fly over the top.
Sagittarius, a Fire Sign, is ruled by expansive, outgoing Jupiter, while Capricorn, an Earth Sign, is governed by restrictive, structured Saturn. You’ll jump into a new project on the strength of a good feeling, a philosophical assessment, while Capricorn wants to know the practical ins and outs of everything. Capricorn always worries about the consequences, but you love to get into things for the sake of your own personal satisfaction.
Sagittarius, a Mutable Sign, is not much of a leader (though you’ll happily play your part). Capricorn, a Cardinal Sign, is quite creative and will originate good ideas and organise the best way to get the plan into action. This can help the relationship, so long as each other’s roles are well defined.
However, your frank outspoken nature is likely to upset Capricorn’s conservative sensibilities. Capricorn is restrictive; a loner, famous for a somewhat dour outlook, while Sagittarius is venturesome, sociable and expansive. Capricorn is cautious with money and concerned with appearances — and Sagittarius cares for neither of these. It’s a difficult match.← Sagittarius and Sagittarius Compatibility Sagittarius and Aquarius Compatibility →
