Are Capricorn and Leo compatible?

Usually when two of these signs get together, it could be a toss-up which way things go compatibility wise. This is one of those relationships that has a chance of working out, or a chance of failing. The future of the relationship lies in the hands of both parties.

The truth of the matter is, is that this isn’t a relationship that is very easy to maintain.

This is a couple where they both want to take the lead in a relationship, and when you have two people that want to be the leader they might constantly butt heads. Add in the fact that both of them have very strong personalities, it’s easy to see that there will be some conflict ahead.

These two people are both proud and very confident in who they are. So the question will come down to will they let one of the other take the lead, or can they come to a compromise.

If both of them are able to smooth and polish any issues that arise between the two of them, then you’re looking at a couple that can not only achieve any goal that they set forth for them, but each of them will bring attributes and qualities to the relationship that the other one will appreciate.

Capricorn will bring more of a focused approach to the life of the Leo. At the same time offering more practical solutions to problems that they both might face.

The Leo will bring more of an emotional aspect to the relationship, at the same time bringing a lot of positivity to the both of them.

How are Capricorn and Leo in love?

This relationship has potential, but at the same time it could go the other way. If they’re able to work together they can have a healthy relationship that’s built on a mutual interest for each other, and suitability.

In some of the cases they won’t be able to form a bond between each other that will last a long time, but they’ll find that they’ll get on a lot better if they’re able to give each other a little bit of space in the relationship. If both feel like they’re not smothered, it will make the relationship a little easier for them both to handle.

This is a couple that truly is ambitious and this is where a problem can arise between the two of them because in some instances the bad personality trait of selfishness can rear its ugly head. Specifically for the Capricorn, as they prefer to achieve greatness on their own, and not share the glory with anyone else. This is definitely something that if they let get in between them could destroy the foundation of friendship that they built their relationship on, as well as all the love that they put into it.

If they want to make things work they both really need to be able to control their egos, and never let their pride get the best of them. They do have the tools to make things work, as they both have a lot of qualities that complement each other.

This in some ways is considered a karmic relationship.They will both go through a lot together, and because of their strong personalities, they will be able to form a pretty strong couple. It will be up to them afterwards to see whether or not things go the way they want them to.

Capricorn is the more reasonable of the two of them. They are also able to bring a lot of balance and wisdom to the relationship, which will help them be able to deal with the daily grind. Their lifestyle is more introverted.

The Leo on the other hand is an extrovert, and likes to sometimes show off a little bit.  However this will be the partner that brings the fire and the heat the relationship. They will help light the spark that will keep the relationship going for a long time.

So basically this couple does have a shot of making things work, as they have all the qualities in each other to do so. The question really comes down to whether or not they can keep their individual pride and egos in check enough to be able to work together to sustain the relationship.

Experts Discuss This Couple:

Melissa: The Lion is a little too flashy for conservative Cap, whose black-and-white world puts a damper on Leo.

Celia: You’ll love guiding the conservation Capricorn to more exciting horizons. The Goat understands your need for prestige and status.

Jenn: You may find the Capricorn to be a little too confined for your tastes and the Capricorn will not appreciate your ability and need to take over everything. The Capricorn is used to being the one in charge and not likely to give in very often which will make you a less likely candidate for a good mate. This relationship can work though with a lot of effort on both parts but it may end up being more effort than it is worth.

Lidia: There isn’t a real amount of scope for the two of you really, as what one of you wants out of the life, the other wants the opposite. There will be a lot of disagreements after the first few months of seeing each other and this may be where you decide to re-assess what you are doing. Capricorn is just too serious and restricted compared to the free spirit of a Leo, who doesn’t like to be controlled in any way. Having said that Leo is by no means the angel, carelessly spending savings and being a bit too slap dash with flitting away the pennies!

However, all of this doesn’t mean you cant survive if you feel you have found your true mate, it just means it will be a lot more hard work. Make sure you both compromise and keep an eye on your stubbornness and you will get somewhere a lot quicker. Leo needs to swallow some of their pride to lead and Capricorn needs to let go of the money issues to keep Leo happy.

Laura: Capricorn will tend to bring out a more serious, steady side of Leo. Leo can liven up Capricorn somewhat and show the goat how to enjoy the fruits of his labor more often. If Leo has had enough of the wild side of life and is looking for a more stable relationship, Capricorn can be the perfect tonic. Both signs love status symbols and can work well together achieving a good standing in life.

Tracy: Leo and Capricorn are also likely to fallout over finances. Overall Capricorn may be too sensible and introverted for the outgoing Leo resulting in an unsteady partnership.

Heidi: Capricorn tends to be more practical than Leo likes, and Leo has a tendency to be more rambunctious than Capricorn cares for. Leo enjoys affection and Capricorn can be a little reserved in that area. Each wants to dominate, and above all, they have a problem supplying the other with emotional security.

Keley: This relationship will have difficulties, as both can be very stubborn about getting what they want. If they are willing to work on this area however, there is a good chance for success in the long term.

Marcus: The Lion and the Goat shine together, often basking in each others dreams. There is a great mutual respect as the bossy Goat and the stubborn Lion realize that each has met it’s match. Peace often flourishes due to this stalemate. These two love stability, and therefore you will often find them living harmoniously in married bliss.

David:  Leo loves big gestures, big emotions, and plenty of drama. Capricorn , meanwhile, likes to play it considerably cooler. But they love the finer things in life. If the money is there to keep them up in style, Capricorn can be a very compatible sign for a Leo.

  1. I am a Capricorn male & I am married to a Leo. We have been together now for 4 years (anniversary on the 28th of Dec) and we have been married now for around 18 months. I think the compatibility description for Capricorns and Leos above is spot on, as I cannot honestly say what attracted us to each other either especially since we met on a dating site so I guess one answer may be that we had the same long term goals in life alhough that makes me sound like a cold Capricorn! The truth is, I fell madly in love with my beautiful leo the moment we met & I know that I never made any effort to hide this as I almost pushed my partner away I was so OTT! & I can still honestly & without hesitation say that I am still madly in love & make this known every day, we have had our rough spots lately but I know we are going to make it for the long haul & neither of us can ever imagine being apart.
    I agree with many characteristics that are placed on each star sign but I also very strongly believe that we are shaped from birth by our environment & the experiences we each have. I was brought up in a very loving & nurturing environment where I was free to express my emotions & I was taught to let love be known & to give affection to those you love every day of your life.
    Maybe I am the only Capricorn on this earth who showers his Leo with love and attention everyday!

  2. Genevieve says:

    The Capricorn is very unemotional, relatively unromantic as well. They tend to put their jobs and their hobbies above their romantic partners. They tend to become distant when under pressure which Hurts the Leo’s ego. They take a break up as just something else in their life they had to endure- as merely a stepping stone. Nothing can crack thee emotional barrier they put up around them. They rarely show affection or give the leo the attention it craves. this speaking of experience- i am a leo female and i dated a male capricorn for over a year. He was always Loyal and we never found out the reasons towards the inital attraction-it just occured. The capricorn isnt capable of supplying the leo with the love,adoration, attention that it constantly seeks

    1. Cynthia Marks says:

      I can understand your frustration with Capricorn’s lack of emotions, but, believe me, they do have them. It just takes patience. A lot of it (and this is coming from a Taurus). They have problems with showing affection, and it’s up to the other partner to give it. Over time, though, with good aging and a good career (yes, they’re workaholics) they become the romantic and affectionate, even playful people you’ve always wanted them to be. Starting a family with them helps, as they love children, but only if they’re theirs. It’s fascinating to see this transformation.

      But Leo needs this Prince Charming immediately and will wonder where he is when she wants her regular dose of love and attention.

  3. Meggan Lynn says:

    The Capricorn male I was with for 2 years did not work out. Unfortunately, love just wasn’t enough. Personalities were completely different and the way each of us handled our problems was nowhere near a compromise. He made it all about me, me, me.Literally. I should’ve known…

  4. All of the above is pretty much true, though you may want to add that Leo creates quite a problem with the Capricorn’s bank account. I never really liked this combination because I think Capricorn deserves someone more refined and well organized than a Leo. There are those cases where Capricorns can’t stand Leo’s flamboyance, but they don’t seem to mind it since they’re so busy with work, or whatever. Maybe it’s because Leo brings fun into Capricorn’s rather boring nature.
