Sagittarius and Capricorn

In theory Sagittarius and Capricorn could be a good match. Your energy harnessed by your Capricorns planning and methodical approach to life can make for a great team. In practice though it can be a challenging relationship to make work on a day to day level, and the low scores represent the initial compatibility of this match.

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 then represent a high initial challenge, and not a long term pessimistic view.

These scores show the averages for data collected from our 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 statistically are likely to have low compatibility.

Sagittarius and Capricorn compatibility

This article is in two halves, the first is written from the viewpoint of the Sagittarius man or Sagittarius woman, and the second is written from the viewpoint of the Capricorn man or Capricorn woman.

From the Sagittarius viewpoint

This relationship illustrates the differences between stubborn and methodical determination (Capricorn) and unbridled enthusiasm (Sagittarius). While the two may sound similar, they're vastly different approaches to life.

You're carefree and impulsive, and enjoy taking the occasional risk to keep things exciting. Your Capricorn is the opposite, often rehearsing what they will say, analyzing performance and results and tweaking plans and timelines accordingly. In this respect you're sometimes going to annoy each other, a lot!

Potentially you could teach your partner how to live for the moment, while they could bring you down to earth, but in practice it will be very hard to do so.

At times you're likely to find this partner too practical or even boring, and they'll find you too irresponsible and reckless. You're an optimist while your partner is a pessimist. They'll call it practical, you'll call it dull.

With understanding and compromise this can make for a great match, where you each fill out the others strengths and weakness 2+2=5 etc. It's not a relationship that will mesh very well without some work and tolerance on both sides however.

You like to go out and socialize, while your partner generally is a lot more reclusive and unsociable, possibly only associating with necessary work contacts and family.

This may sound trivial, but it can be a major point of friction in a Sagittarius Capricorn relationship - neither of you will bend very far if you decide your partner is being unreasonable.

Your partner is conservative and reserved, nearly always diplomatic and aware of their public image. You prefer a much more direct approach to communication, and while in private you may share a similar sense of humor, your partners won't carry over into social gatherings whereas yours will, perhaps giving you a jackal and hyde impression of them.

Regardless of the above you'll probably admire your partners inner strength and sense of purpose, however without compromise at times it may feel smothering rather than inspirational.

Your Capricorn will appreciate how open you are sexually, they're often just as exciting and experimental with the right partner (contrary to how reserved they may first appear!)

As with other areas, understanding each other may be required to really bring out your sexual chemistry. Unlike some other sign matches this one is unlikely to have fireworks which "just happen" on their own.

Rifts in other areas of the relationship can also add to the work needed to perfect things sexually here.

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.

From the Capricorn viewpoint

Capricorn and Sagittarius Compatibility

Capricorn Sagittarius could be a good match. Your planning coupled with your Sagittarians energy could make a great team. In reality though this is a hard match to reconcile, which is often compounded by a lack of sexual chemistry until you understand each other better.

This relationship illustrates the differences between stubborn and methodical determination (you) and unbridled enthusiasm (your partner). While the two may sound similar and complimentary, they're vastly different approaches to life.

You're careful, cautious and methodical, while Sagittarius is often carefree and impulsive. They enjoy taking the occasional risk to keep things exciting. In this respect you're likely to confound and annoy each other a lot, each wondering how it's possible to live that way.

Potentially you could teach your partner how to be more responsible and practical, while they can teach you to live a little and let your hair down more often.

In practice this can be challenging, as you're just too different in your outlooks. You'll find them reckless and irresponsible, they'll find you stubborn or even boring. You can certainly meet in the middle, but it will require work on both sides.

You're a realist, whereas this partner is an optimist. Their blind faith in everything working out on it's own will offend your preference for planning and preparation. Sagittarius is notorious for jumping and then worrying about the landing on the way down (what may frustrate you even more in its own way is how they always land just fine!)

This is a partner who likes to go out and socialize, while you're generally happier at home, and likely to be seen as more reclusive and unsociable. There's likely to be arguments in a Capricorn Sagittarius relationship in this area, as neither of you will bend very far. It's likely you'll find your partner going out alone, and this together with their sometimes flirtatious nature will probably make you insecure in this relationship.

Your partner takes a very direct approach to communication, and while in private you may share a similar sense of humor, in public they may often make you cringe. This is the type of partner you might not be comfortable taking to work gatherings for fear of offending someone important, though in other situations it can be very entertaining and something you enjoy about them.

You'll probably admire your partners free spirit and enthusiasm for learning, however overall it will feel like a very inefficient and fruitless use of their endless enthusiasm. You value consistency, and eventually it might be tempting to give up trying to instill any in your wild-child partner.

As in other areas, the secret is to appreciate your partners strengths and quirks, and not expect to be able to change them. Would you really want them to be a mini-Capricorn?

You'll enjoy how open your Sagittarius is sexually, but beyond that it's unlikely there will be much chemistry in this match without an investment in understanding and compromise.
