Capricorn Libra Compatibility
Capricorn Libra is an unusual combination, in that its success is often highly dependant on each partners role in the relationship. This can range from being a perfect team to an almost unworkable one.
(All scores range from 1=low to 5=high)

Depending on your roles in the relationship this can be a solid combination, or, it can be fairly awkward one. Libra is often focused on making a marriage work, while Capricorn is often focused on career success. If you have traditional roles (breadwinner & homemaker) this can work well. In a 50/50 partnership however it can be a recipe for dissatisfaction on both sides.
By your standards this is a partner who may come across as disorganized and carefree, flaky, irresponsible or even lazy. This is a spontaneous and fun partner, who may feel more like a child than a lover sometimes. This is no bad thing overall, encouraging you to stop and enjoy life occasionally.
Your Libra likes a lot of attention and compliments. You aren't big on handing these out routinely, so your partner may turn elsewhere for that need. That's not to say they will cheat (they tend to be very loyal), but it's likely to make you insecure, especially if deep down you know you're neglecting them due to work obligations etc.
Your Libra is more outgoing and sociable than you are. If you're particularly reclusive by nature this may lead to arguments over whether to go out or stay in. On the other hand if socializing is required for your career then this partner can make an excellent ally - never tiring of making friends or charming people.
Along these lines you're both very concerned with appearances and public image/reputation. You both tend to be classy and sophisticated, and unlikely to embarrass each other.
Capricorn Libra sex
This will be good in the short term, though potentially lacking in the longer term. You're more focused on the physical component of sex, while your partner is likely to have a higher emphasis on the intellectual component - you may each find the other lacking in this respect unless you take time to understand and appreciate each other.
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. If you would like more information for your unique relationship please see the astrology compatibility reports page.
Other resourcesOften the best way to establish for yourself how compatible you are is to ask your partner questions. Sounds obvious and easy, but in practice it can be awkward.
Often the hardest questions to ask are the most important - for example, what are their views and expectations for raising children? sharing housework? saving money? career goals? etc.
One subtle and fun way to approach this is by working through a couples question book together - that way it's not really you asking, and delicate subjects can be covered easily. The best book for this I've found is Michael Webb's 1000 Questions For Couples
For reviews of this and other relationship ebooks on subjects ranging from improving your sex life to getting an ex back please see the relationship ebook reviews page.
A third method of further research is to share experiences with other couples of this same sign combination - you may be amazed how consistent they often are. Please see the links below for visitor experiences and questions.
In any relationship there are also very significant external factors. One of these is how well you understand yourself, your partner and your partnership - the more you do, the easier it is to make the relationship more exciting, fulfilling and satisfying for both of you, regardless of your starting position. The articles on how to Make him fall in love with you and Make her fall in love with you have information on how you can use astrology to revitalize a relationship.

The information on this page applies equally to gay or lesbian relationships. Overall, gender affects relationships far less than planet placement does, so it's currently ignored to avoid articles becoming overburdened with gender permutations.
