The caveat in this partnership is both aren’t as intense sexually. Virgo is on the shy side, while Capricorn is a bit stiff on the intimacy front.

Intimacy might be challenged, with the parties’ different approach when it comes to sex. Capricorn may seem disconnected, while Leo can be too primal. The lion can get depressed not experiencing as much adoration as it wants coming from the seagoat. Capricorn meanwhile will feel rushed and somewhat choked by Leo’s passion. Down-to-earth and practical Capricorn may think of Leo as a bit shallow and proud, and the lion finds the seagoat’s half-empty approach to life tasking. The challenge lies in finding the delicate balance to make an unshakeable team out of their relationship that can overcome these obstacles.
#9 Capricorn – Sagittarius
At first, Capricorn will appreciate the lightness that Sagittarius brings, and on the flipside, the archer finds comfort in the stability of the sea goat. Extroverted, happy-go-lucky and fun-centric archer meets the methodical homebody and ambitious goat. Earth signs tend to be grounded people and revel in the idea of having a home base and roots, too much traveling can exhaust Capricorn.
Sexually, it is not the best match, as Capricorn wants emotional bond and not just the physical satisfaction.The trust between these two signs will be low which makes then unlikely to learn from each other’s strengths and weaknesses. Capricorn finds a lack of authenticity coming from Sagittarius. Capricorn will also find the archer careless and impulsive, not benefiting his ambitions and drive. The trick to make this pair work is by not letting the honeymoon end and just appreciating each other’s strengths.
#10 Capricorn – Aries
An Aries-Capricorn relationship will feature a very high level of trust for each other, value independence and honesty, but plagued with other challenges throughout the relationship. They are both driven by success and achievement – good traits but can result in pressure and perfectionism.

The two will display somewhat of a parent-child dynamic with Capricorn calming down the hyperactive little boss in Aries, but at the same time generously spoiling the baby. This can develop into a pain point when it comes to finances, as Capricorn might not be able to give everything Aries demands. The same scenario is expected in their intimacy.

Capricorn likewise needs to yield to Aries’ impatience. There’s much to be learned between the two, and if they are able to see their differences as ways to learn more about the world, respect these, and at the same time support each other’s goals, the relationship can reach power couple status.
#11 Capricorn – Gemini
Both are ambitious signs that operate at different speeds – Gemini is air and fast, Capricorn as an earth sign is thorough and slow. They both want success in their life but the means aren’t the same – Capricorn believes in hard work and structure – traits seen as too conservative and uncreative by Gemini. Gemini yearns speed and fun, reaching goals through connections, and can be a bit reckless – which isn’t exactly by the (Capricorn’s) book. Capricorn will view the twin’s technique to be a bit half-baked.
Intimacy can be challenged with the twins finding the sea goat as a bit or a bore and stiff. Capricorn, on the other hand, can get anxious trying to keep up with Gemini who wants nothing conventional in the bed room. Capricorn will find Gemini to be uncommitted and disconnected emotionally too. Flirty Gemini will not be tolerated by traditionalist and monogamous Capricorn.
The good thing about this match is that both learn lots of skills from each other, what the other’s strength is the other’s weakness. Capricorn can teach patience and perseverance, Gemini can teach innovation and efficiency.
#12 Capricorn – Libra
A Libra-Capricorn relationship ought to be difficult. Capricorn is career-focused, hardworking and driven by ambition. Meanwhile, Libra can get lax, just wants balance and be in a relationship. From the get-go, the misaligned priorities will make these two signs crazy. One grounded in reality, and the other idealism and fantasy.
Capricorn as an earth sign is naturally utilitarian, and Libra’s expensive and fine taste a bit too frivolous for Capricorn’s. Despite being sexual signs, the match might experience lack of sexual activity further aggravating the shortage of shared values and interests. It will take lots of compromise, understanding, and adjustments to make this relationship work.
