Capricorn and Aquarius Compatibility – Earth + Air

aquarius + capricorn

Are Capricorn and Aquarius compatible?

When both of these people get into a relationship together the outcome can be a very good one for all involved. In a lot of relationships people look at opposites as being something that they can’t get over when it comes to personality traits.

That’s not the same issue that these two face. They do bring a lot of differences to the table in this relationship, but if they can work together and look at them as something that’s complementary and not something that separates them, then they can make this relationship work .

Capricorn can bring a seriousness and stability to the relationship that might be lacking in other partners that the Aquarius could have been with. The Aquarius who can at times be insecure, will feel very secure within the relationship .

How are Aquarius and Capricorn in love?

A lot of people could look at them as an Odd Couple, because even though they might have some differences, they’ll also learn that they have some things in common.

Capricorn can sometimes come off as harsh or selfish to others, and this is something that the Aquarius can help bring some softener to. On the other side of things the Aquarius will be attracted to the offbeat and sometimes unusual  ( not in a bad way) characteristics of the Aquarius.

There is no doubt that in this relationship both of these signs are not known to be very affectionate. If they are able to correct their ways and become more affectionate and loving to their partner, then this combination has a really good chance of working out.

Something that could possibly be a make-or-break situation between the two of these people has to do with the future and how they look towards it. Capricorn is the type of person that looks at life on a day-to-day basis, taking it as the time comes. They find it as a more practical way of living life.

On the other side of things, the Aquarius really likes to be able to plan things for the future. It gives them stability when it comes to their own life, and it makes them feel safer in a relationship .

If they can both find a middle ground, where they start to be able to live day to day, but plan for some things in the future that are of importance, then together they’ll be able to get past this possible problem.

Experts Discuss This Couple:

Melissa: Ultra conservative Caps will bore Aquarians to tears – and the extra flashy Aquarians can outright frighten some Caps. But, if they can get beyond that, they’ll find that Capricorn has the stick-to-it-iveness that Aquarians need to put bring their far-reaching ideas into reality.

Celia: Aquarius’ behaviour will have you cringing in embarssment at times. You’ll need to accept the Water Carrier’s friends, however wacky.

Jenn: Being with the Aquarius will prove to never be boring for you. You will enjoy the constant ideas and easy-going reasonable nature the Aquarius readily provides. Either the two of you will make each other happy right off the bat or you won’t. There is not much middle ground here but if the relationship starts off on a good note, it will be a smashing success!

Lidia: You too will find each other almost irresistible and there could be quite a chase until you are in a relationship. Situations will start off relatively slowly and Aquarius will love the warm, caring attitude Capricorn smothers them in, and while this is wonderfully reassuring, it will become too much for Aquarius in the end. Freedom of choice is important to everyone, but Capricorn does have a habit of taking this away from his or her partner. Both of you will have to give in and look for compromises for this to work, so you must both loosen up and see the funny side of things more.

Try to have days where you don’t follow routine and let your hair down, take each thing as it comes and be daring! Sexually, you both seem to come from the same mould, as your desires are quite similar. You must ensure you make time for sex, as this can be put on a back burner by both of you and it is such to shame to lose out on all that passion!

Laura: Capricorn may have a challenge on it’s hands with Aquarius, because the water bearer usually doesn’t fit into a neat little box. However, if Capricorn is in the frame of mind for something unusual, Aquarius is just the type that can shake things up. Not that Aquarius couldn’t learn a thing or two about structure from the goat, but Capricorn is often likely in need of a little bit of weird, in it’s orderly life; they need someone to show the goat, that there is a less serious side to the world.

Heidi: Aquarius probably won’t give Capricorn the security or dependability needed and when Capricorn begins to dominate Aquarius, it will only spell out trouble. Aquarius is expressive, and Capricorn reserved. Aquarius enjoys spending money, which most likely will annoy Capricorn. They will probably lack respect and understanding for each other.

Keley: This relationship can work well, provided that Aquarius is ready to settle down and offer a bit of stability to Capricorn. If Aquarius is not ready for a level of security within the relationship, many conflicts and problems may arise.

Marcus: These two astrological signs are an adventure, and the outcome is difficult to predict. The challenge lies here. An Aquarian will be very forgiving of Capricorn’s compulsions and rigid nature. It simply rolls off their idealistic shoulders. Capricorn on the other hand may not be as sympathetic to the Aquarians unconventional, gregarious nature. They instead see flaky. Aquarius after all is an Air sign and the Goat may exhaust himself trying to bring them back to planet Earth. These two will need some help in the order of compatible Moon Signs or Ascendents in order to bring them closer together.

David: The worried traditionalist vs. the optimistic maverick. Capricorn is likes systems and rules; Aquarius likes to break them, figuring everything will turn out alright in the end. Chances are you will get on each other’s nerves before long.

Capricorn Man and Aries Woman

The love relationship between Capricorn men and Aquarius women can be very difficult to maintain. In fact it is impossible to have both of them in a love relationship. The reason is the fact that Capricorn men are very simple and honest people. They just keep to themselves and follow what the crowd has set in front of them. The Aquarius women are the opposite of these men and they just cannot stand such shy and quiet people. They do not go along at hang outs and certainly cannot match up their ideas for living. An Aquarius woman having a relationship with Capricorn man, not a good idea!

Aquarius Man and Capricorn Woman

Aquarius men and Capricorn women are different from each other, but their differences make their relationships healthier, as they both admire one another’s differences. Like Aquarius men have the ability to make things surprising and shocking, while Capricorn like to spend a simple stable life.

Aquarius men are eccentric by nature, and they have the ability to shock everyone. Aquarius men usually do things when it is least expected and they are also very flexible, and can change into various forms. Aquarius people can easily get detached from the world and seem to be emotionless and unreal. And can easily become depressed.

Capricorn and Aquarius Friendship

This friendship is like the old saying being at the right place at the right time. Both of these signs enjoy adventure and based on that alone you will never have boring friendship.

Aquarius and Capricorn  Relationship

As lovers:

Just like the adventurous side that was mentioned before when it comes to being lovers you have that going for you and a lot more. You together could very well be kindred spirits.

Long-term relationship:

The trick here is to not let life’s little things and every day daily routines get in the way of your relationship. When you take that into consideration as well as keep the joy and romantic flame going within your relationship you can possibly turn this into the forever kind of love.

Short-term relationship:

In the short-term sense you have to catch each other’s attention and be a little bit outside of the normal for each other. Over time you will either go your separate ways or if you succeed move on to more stable relationship.

Capricorn and Aquarius Sex

When you combine these two signs in the sexual way fireworks will surely fly. You both bring a lot of excitement to the bedroom and have a lot of energy to get the job done.

  1. I’m an Aquarian, partnered with a Capricorn, and I fully agree with this assessment.

    It’s been 3 years and my Capricorn partner still doesn’t know where I’m coming from. And yes, we used to spend a lot of time together in the beginning but now I’m so frustrated by the lack of social interaction that I just want to break free at times. From a personal experience, I find Capricorns a bit stifling.

  2. sheyl lynn says:

    I’m a Capricorn sun…and that’s where it seems to end. Everybody I know thinks I’m a little nuts, odd, eccentric. Not the usual description for a Capricorn. It’s probably because my moon and mars are in Aquarius and my ascendant and venus are in Sagittarius. I love to have fun! My coworker is an Aquarius. Though I don’t have an attraction to him at all, I do have to say he is not at all like the typical aquarius I’ve read about. I did his chart and lo and behold he has 4 planets in Capricorn. It seems I act more like the Aquarius and he like the Capricorn.

  3. I am a CAPRICORN married to an AQUARIAN male who is a genius, an artist, musician, builder and a modern-day Renaissance man. However, we are closer friends than sexmates. In fact, we have no sex really anymore. I’m SO JEALOUS of the one who was getting it on above! We love each other so deeply but have fought which may have deteriorated the sex part for NOW. We both want to fix it. I’m very grounded and not too serious (great sense of humor) but when we argue, he is totally NUTS and devoid of logic. I cannot get where he is coming from AT ALL. Still, I love him madly and vice versa. Hope we can get through our rough patch! I still think CAPS are the most logical sign and AQUARIANS the most illogical when arguing! PS: FOr really nuts – check out the GEMINI section : )

  4. I’m an aquarius who’s been paired with more than one Capricorn. My current Love is a Capricorn he has been my only love for the past 7 yrs. The passion is out of this world! The Love Making Is truly Passionate, Sensual, Sultry, Heated, Loving and very intense in a very good way of course! The love seems to grow more and more the fascination with each other is constant. We are never bored with each other that is certain.

    We share the best friendship and the compatibility is the best I’ve ever had with anyone ever! We even work together all day long. I think this is one match that on most every analysis I’ve ever read is totally untrue about it being a short termed relationship. I also know a few couples with the same signs who’ve been married for years and years and are still close! =) I love my Cappie he’s the best thing in my life!

  5. I’ve been involved with two Aquarius back to back. I’m a Capricorn with Scorpio rising.

    The sex is out of control! Both of them were very experimental and freaky. One was 7 years my junior, experienced but not confident, still very good. Will be GREAT when he’s older. The other 7 years older. Confident and unbelievable. Keeps getting better.

    We DO NOT get along, at all. With either of them. They are NUTS! It’s so worth it though. Fell in love with both of them. Can’t be in a relationship with them because they are bossy and dominant. I don’t take kind to orders, except when it’s beneficial to me.

    They don’t like to argue, just to be right, and they say the rudest things and expect you to not respond. Most of them study the Tao to their advantage. They’re hot but jerks sometimes. Sweet as pie but you can’t predict that. Don’t piss them off, they are very vindictive, but the best kissers and lovers in the world.

  6. I found this true to a degree although I feel long term between Capricorns and Aquarius to be a little more common than uncommon. I’m an Capricorn who was partnered to an Aquarius twelve years, we have remained close friends. I am currently involved with another. I enjoy their freedom loving side and find it goes well with my freedom loving side also.

    I think Capricorns are misclassified as well. Many people feel we are serious, and more preoccupied with status than we probably are – there is a reason we have that fishy tale *wink* we are mischievous and freedom loving as well, and the magicians of the zodiac — also mercurial.

    It’s not all about money and seriousness. 🙂

    Love your site too by the way, one of the best on here!

    (perhaps I’m a different cap with Sagittarius moon and Aries rising in my chart, it’s hard to say)
