Aries and Capricorn can be a challenging relationship to make work. The low scores represent the initial compatibility of this match. However, you are both strong willed enough to make this work, and if you succeed the scores would be much higher.
If you can both adapt to the others style this is a relationship which will improve steadily over time, and eventually rival any other match. The low scores represent a high initial challenge, and not a long term pessimistic view.
These scores show the averages for data collected from my clients over the past 20 years. It's important to note however that individual relationships vary enormously. This is a summarized picture, a real compatibility reading is needed to judge a real relationship. It's also worth noting that Soulmates can be found in any sun sign match, even those which are statistically likely to have low compatibility.
This article is in two halves, the first is written from the viewpoint of the Aries man or Aries woman, and the second is written from the viewpoint of the Capricorn man or Capricorn woman.
This wont be an initially easy relationship. Your goals and styles are likely to be very different.
If your Capricorn has their way then the relationship will seem stable and perhaps even slightly boring to you, while if you have your way then your partner will quite likely be terrified!
Either way both of you will be frustrated. If you can reach a middle ground then you can compliment each other well, but in practice this if often challenging.
Your Capricorn values structure, stability and security above all else, while you probably don't have much patience for any of those concepts - at least when it comes to making them a priority.
In all things you're highly impulsive and outgoing, while your Capricorn is highly cautious and reserved. While you each admire the others style, you'll need to compromise a lot to meet in the middle.
You both can become workaholics fairly easily, but with different styles. While you're passionate about work, and easily engrossed in an exciting project, you can walk away from it afterwards often without a backwards glance.
Your Capricorn on the other hand values the security which work brings, and often carry it with them 24/7. If this is the case with your Cappy you'll need to help your partner unwind before getting them to stray far from the topic of work.
As in other areas of the relationship, it's likely you're moving too fast for your Capricorn to really appreciate.
It often takes Capricorns a while to get into the mood (at least early in a relationship with a new partner), and they're often stubborn enough to resist any attempts at rushing. While some signs can be fun to rush, it will likely backfire with this one.
Capricorn is a very strong sign (you may not believe it initially), and that strength is built around patience. You're an equally strong sign, but built around action. Arguments here are likely to end in a stalemate, so compromise and tolerance are the keys to success.
It's important to note however that we're looking only at sun signs here. There are many other planets which can have an equal or greater effect on someone's personality. Makes sense, as ultimately everyone is of course unique. Generalizing too far based just on sun signs can therefore be misleading.
To fully understand someone or how compatible you are with them we need to calculate those other planet placements from their date of birth, and compare them to your own, and then interpret the results.
This unlocks the real power of astrology, and gives much more useful and specific information: everything from how they view you, how to turn them on, how to avoid arguments with them etc. If you would like to explore this further please see the compatibility readings page.
Capricorn Aries can work easily if either of you is particularly successful or wealthy, as that will take the sting out of the major points of friction.
In the absence of excessive wealth or success though this can often be a challenging relationship to make work.
Based on temperaments you have almost nothing in common with your Aries partner - you're very patient while your Aries definitely isn't.
You both can be vary ambitious, but with very different styles, and this can cause friction in many life areas. The most obvious one is careers, if they are important to both of you.
You like to plan and make steady progress, while your Aries prefers to have a great idea and act on it obsessively - and then often discard it later for an even better idea - an alien concept to many Capricorns!
It's very likely you prefer to be employed by someone else, while your Aries is very likely to either be self employed, or to wish they were.
Your Aries enjoys being impulsive, reckless and living for the moment, and also expects to be largely in control of a relationship. This match will probably make you fairly nervous or resistant. Aries is often anything but conservative.
Money is possibly going to be an issue, as your Aries often enjoys spending it as it arrives, with little thought for tomorrow, while you're almost guaranteed to want both some savings and a plan, in order to feel very secure about your financial future.
One area you are likely to agree on is the need for a reasonable level of independence in the relationship. Neither of you like to be controlled or told what to do.
By Aries standards you're a fairly slow and sensual lover, and by your standards Aries is rushed and impatient. As in other areas compromise is the key - enjoy your differences rather than letting them annoy you.
You both prefer playful over heavy or emotionally intense sex, so the potential is here for a fun and healthy balance - as long as you both compromise and don't dig in when it comes to not always getting your way.
So is this article conclusive? No! This article is based only on sun sign interaction. In order to provide a lot of people with information it's a convenient and fast way to generalize, but it's far from conclusive at this broad level.
