A Taurus-Capricorn relationship is traditional and family-oriented, since you both understand each other’s need for stability.
Taurus and Capricorn: Your compatibility clicks and clashes
Where you click:
Solid as a rock! This relationship is built to last. Both Taurus and Capricorn are traditional, hardworking, and blessed with success. As a couple you quickly become the pillars of your community and may even play a parental role for various members of your extended families. You both love to plan for the future. During a hot and heavy romp, you’re likely to discuss subjects like where to send the kids for private school. Never mind that “the kids” haven’t been born yet! For the two of you, life is a giant goal sheet that’s waiting to be filled.
Where you clash:
The flaw in your whole operation? The two of you might forget to live in the moment…which is where true romance exists. Spontaneity can become scarce here, but if you allow for it (heck, PLAN for it), the eternal flame of your love will blaze on. Date nights…OUTSIDE OF THE HOUSE…are a passion-fueling must, especially if they provide a chance for you both to wear couture pieces from your elegant wardrobes.
Taurus and Capricorn are both earth signs
Home sweet home…or humdrum? As two grounded earth signs, you are both seeking security, consistency and a bond that’s built to last. Tradition and integrity are important—in each other, you find the stability you crave. Soon enough, you’ll ease into pleasant routines and rituals together. Structure and routine come naturally to earth signs. Whether you’re running a business or a family together, your ability to “keep it simple” is one of your shared earthy superpowers.
Too much of the tried-and-true can also prevent you from evolving with the times.
This rock-solid combo can create a lovely legacy that stands the test of time. The challenge? Getting stuck in a rut. Your life can become stagnant if you don’t refresh your worldview periodically by traveling, learning new philosophies or inviting fresh faces into your circle. Together, you may become too iron-fisted and conservative, which others will find intimidating. Because the earth element rules the physical world, you can also become overly materialistic and status-driven. Or you may indulge your senses by eating, drinking and accumulating possessions, forgetting to work on spiritual and emotional development. Too much of the tried-and-true can also prevent you from evolving with the times. Earth-sign pairings must view change and risk as an opportunity rather than a threat. Compromise is also a skill that needs extra work here. Earth signs stand their ground, but they can also stubbornly dig in their heels. If you turn that intractable nature on each other, it can be an endless war—with nobody willing to budge!
There are four elements in astrology: fire, earth, air and water. Each one plays an important role in the greater whole of humankind. A love match with someone from the same astrological element offers the comfort of familiarity. At last, you don’t have to explain yourself all the time! You both operate at similar speeds to a certain degree. As lovely as that is, it can also be “too much of a good thing,” causing your relationship to feel like a single track on continuous replay. After all, differences can be challenging in a good way because they push you both to grow.
As a same-element couple, you may need to make a conscious effort to not get stuck in a rut or even a competitive dynamic. Spending time with friends, coworkers or relatives of another element can introduce a more balancing energy. For example, an adventurous fire sign friend could get you to try physical challenges or take a risk at work. A thoughtful air sign might get you out of a stubborn rut, helping you view things from a different perspective.
Taurus is fixed and Capricorn is cardinal
In astrology, the “qualities” or “triplicities” reveal the role you play in a relationship or collaboration. Are you a starter, a doer or a finisher? Do you like to take charge and have a plan, or do you prefer to go with the flow? Cardinal and fixed signs are both “take charge” in their own right. Cardinal signs like to lead and initiate—which is fine as long as they don’t tread on the fixed sign’s turf. The nature of fixed energy is to stand firm and resist change unless it’s really necessary. Fixed signs are set in their ways, while cardinal signs are a touch more fluid, though stubborn in their own right! The cardinal sign may introduce too many new ideas into the mix, or worse, try to “improve” on the fixed sign’s ideas by giving unsolicited criticism. This feedback, no matter how well-intended, could threaten the fixed sign’s pride, leading to a major ego battle. The fixed sign could also seem “boring” to the cardinal sign if they want to do the same thing week in and week out. In this love match, the fixed sign will have to be more open to “trendy” over tried-and-true. When the cardinal sign scores reservations at a buzzy new restaurant, resort, club or event, the fixed sign had better clean up and GO. In return, the cardinal sign must patronize the mom-and-pop bistro, the favorite karaoke bar, or another dinner with the fixed sign’s family. The fixed sign’s more traditional approach to romance can seem clumsy or heavy-handed to the discerning cardinal sign. So, cardinal sign, you got a conventional Tiffany locket instead of an Alexander McQueen limited-edition ring? Suck it up and say thanks—or start dropping hints a lot sooner before your next birthday!
Taurus and Capricorn are both yin, or feminine signs
In astrology, every sign has a “polarity”: you’re either yin (feminine) or yang (masculine). You are both yin signs: receptive, sensitive and intuitive. When all is good, you are deeply simpatico, nurturing one another and sharing romantic, thoughtful gestures. The downside? Your fluctuating moods may collide, causing dramatic fights that can escalate into an unnecessary cold war. You can also get SO tuned into each other’s emotions that your bond turns codependent. While it’s lovely to build a cozy cocoon, make sure you don’t get stuck in that bubble and stunt each other’s personal growth.
Taurus and Capricorn are trine (four signs apart)
In astrology love matches, we also measure compatibility by the aspect, or distance, between the two signs. Your signs are trine, or four signs apart. In this love match, it can feel like “home sweet home” The trine sign mate has the same element as yours (fire, earth, air or water), creating an unspoken kinship and harmony. At last—you don’t have to constantly explain yourself. You’ve never felt so comfortable, so understood on a core level. This is the person you can burp and pass gas around, or use the bathroom with the door open when they’re home. But don’t invest in a wardrobe full of elastic waistbands just yet. In trine relationships, you’ll need to preserve some mystery to keep things exciting. Make sure you stay active and on the go, and don’t do everything together. A little autonomy goes a long way to keep the passion alive.
