Capricorn and Capricorn (two partners, each with a Capricorn sun sign) is a match which often gets bad press for being boring, but it can work very well in practice, often with soulmate potential.
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.
Capricorn is a sign often misunderstood by other signs, so this match works especially well if you've had partners who just didn't understand or accept you previously - this one will know where you're coming from, without any frustrating explanations.
You're both practical, ambitious and persevering. You both value and seek recognition for hard work, and both tend to be serious and practical, especially in public.
You both can be very reserved with strangers, and the hardest part of this relationship is often getting it off the ground initially.
After that it's typically very stable and long lasting, with both of you going to any length not to let the other down, and appreciating the same in return. Having a partner you can rely on is very important to both of you.
The main danger in this relationship is that you both tend to be 'work first' (or children, home, responsibilities first) and play second. You also tend to be pessimistic and stubborn, which can make for a tough situation.
This match is sensitive to moon signs, and works best when you each have non-earth moons which are compatible with each other (the good news is that statistically that's fairly likely). For example, two earth moons would be a Low-Low-Low score, one fire moon and one air moon would give a High-High-High. Please see below for more information on investigating this.
A surprisingly volatile and spicy match, with no shortage of chemistry. You're both very sensual, playful and adventurous in bed, and would make those who know you only by your reserved social side blush.
There is a risk of you both feeling a lack of emotional connection or intensity in the long term however, unless you consciously make room for regular romance within the relationship.
Overall this relationship has great potential, with relatively little effort!
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 astrology compatibility reports page.
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.
To get a complete picture we need to take all the other planets and their interactions into account for each of you. If you would like more information on this for your unique relationship please see the astrology compatibility reports page.
