When Sagittarius and Capricorn come together for love or any kind of relationship, it’s going to be a challenge—but at least you’re both up for it! These two entrepreneurs are also total opposites, which can create a push-pull dynamic when trying to get just about anything done. A Sagittarius-Capricorn relationship is worth exploring, since you both understand each others’ ambitious natures and lavish tastes.
Sagittarius and Capricorn: Your compatibility clicks and clashes
Where you click:
Reaching the honeymoon phase is going to be tricky here! This combination works best when both signs have amassed an individual fortune and can spend lavishly on travel, designer clothes, and a business venture that makes no sense on paper but has the power to revolutionize the world. While there’s plenty of sizzle and steam in the beginning, it’s hard for you to coexist in the same atmosphere. Both signs love a challenge and this relationship will certainly bring that. You share an entrepreneurial nature, but Sagittarius is a gambler while Capricorn only takes extremely calculated risks. “More, more, more” is the Sagittarius mantra, which scares cautious Cap to no end…especially when it comes to the Archer’s impulse spending. As a result, Capricorn may earn a country club membership, while Sagittarius remains locked outside of the elite golden gates.
Where you clash:
Proceed with caution. Your relationship is literally fire (Sagittarius) and ice (Capricorn). Aggressive, adventurous Sagittarius quickly hits a wall with cautious, rule-abiding Capricorn. As Cap lays down the laws (and refuses to bend them). Sagittarius charges forward, smashing your overzealous head against Capricorn’s stony barricade. As parents, you’re a slightly awkward couple since you can’t agree on anything beyond the merit of feeding the family organic food. Capricorn will want to spend holidays with a large group of relatives while Sagittarius would rather drop the kids off with grandparents and escape for a romantic trip to St. Thomas.
Sagittarius is fire and Capricorn is earth
Handle with care! This astrology love match of wildly different elements can thrive as long as you play to your strengths. Grounded earth signs seek stability and want to put down roots. By contrast, adventurous fire signs long to explore, grow and spread into new terrain. A battle can erupt as one of you strives for freedom while the other craves consistency. The fire sign will feel caged in by the white picket fence fantasy, while the earth sign can never relax with constant change and surprises. But if you learn to appreciate your differences, then you can offer what the other one is missing. The worldly fire sign will have a predictable home base to return to, lovingly tended to by the earth sign partner. In exchange, the earth sign will avoid getting stuck in a stagnant rut because the fire sign will encourage growth and adaptation.
This astrology love match of wildly different elements can thrive as long as you play to your strengths.
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 of a different astrological element can be challenging, but also a beautiful opportunity to evolve. After all, differences push you both to grow and step outside of your own experience. Earth signs are sensual and practical, and impulsive fire signs can benefit from their grounded approach. In this relationship, the fire sign can learn to slow down and savor the moment, rather than rushing off to the next big thing. And the fire sign can help the earth sign take more chances in life. Think in terms of nature: dirt can smother a fire, and fire can scorch the earth. But in order to build a fire and maximize its creative powers, there must be a steady ground beneath the flames.
Sagittarius is mutable 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 signs are initiators—they like to lead and direct and manage. Much of the time, this suits the flowy and flexible mutable sign, who may find it hard to make a decision and appreciates the extra help! But when the cardinal sign gets TOO rigid or elitist, that’s where the mutable sign will chafe. The mutable sign needs to flow freely, and won’t abide by the cardinal sign’s dress codes, critical comments or Miss Manners routine. Cardinal signs have discerning tastes and an air of entitlement, which helps them gravitate toward the finer things and first-class experiences. But they can seem a bit snobbish or status-seeking for the mutable sign, who befriends everyone from the postman to the president of the company. The cardinal sign will have to be more down-to-earth and less judgmental at times—and stop trying to make over the mutable mate! And the mutable sign should check with the cardinal sign before RSVPing to random events or inviting strangers over for dinner. Giving gifts can be tricky in this love match—cardinals know exactly what they like and can be very hard to please. The mutable mate should get a wish list long in advance of birthdays or holidays.
Sagittarius is yang and Capricorn is yin
In astrology, every sign has a “polarity”: you’re either yin (feminine) or yang (masculine). In your sign match, Capricorn is a receptive yin sign and Sagittarius is an assertive yang sign. When you play to your strengths, you balance each other out, each on contributing a different but complementary skill set. When things are off, you can become polarized. The yin sign can be too passive (or passive-aggressive) and sacrificing, while the yang sign may act domineering, aggressive and selfish. To re-balance, the yin sign needs to work on being more open, direct and confident, while the yang sign should cultivate more patience, tolerance and sensitivity.
Sagittarius and Capricorn are semisextile (one sign apart)
In astrology love matches, we also measure compatibility by the aspect, or distance, between the two signs. Your signs are semisextile, or one sign apart. Like next-door neighbors with a completely different style of decorating, gardening and living, the signs on either side of yours can stir up an instant love/hate vibe. Of course, all that friction can lead to explosive sexual chemistry, even an obsessive quest to figure each other out (you never will). Some astrologers believe that each sign is an evolved version of the one before it. The sign after yours is a teacher. However, like a rebellious teen seeking emancipation from a parent, you may never admit that this person has taught you anything. This cosmic combination can make for painful breakups, and a seething sexual tension that lingers for a lifetime.
