They are two very different but at the same time complementary signs. It all lies in accepting this “complementarity”. On the professional and love level, compromise is necessary. Aries and Capricorn do not go at the same pace: the first is fast and nervous, the second is calm and relaxed.

Sexual compatibility and intimacy

This is a very difficult combination of signs when it comes to sexual compatibility. The rulers of Aries and Capricorn are Mars and Saturn. These planets are considered archetypal or karmic enemies. When it comes to sexuality, it is primarily indicated by Mars and its contact with Saturn can result in all sorts of physical and objective obstacles on the way to a healthy sex life. Saturn puts too much pressure on Mars and takes a lot of her energy. Their relationship will result in the lack of sexual desire, the mutual feeling of incompetence or even the helplessness of one or both parties included.


Since they are both extremes and all or no types of people, it will be easy for them to trust each other. Even if they have deep misunderstandings in other areas of their relationship, they will rarely betray each other’s trust. This is something they will easily take for granted, because when they are together, they seem to lose awareness of the things between them that should be appreciated. One of them should have the common sense to remind the other from time to time of the qualities their bond includes.

Communication and intellect

They should keep the conversation in touch with career goals, work accomplishments, and physical activity, as Capricorn exalts Mars, the ruler of Aries. Other than that, they don’t have much to talk about.

Rarely will a Capricorn partner allow their impulsive and even stupid Aries partner to have their own opinions and value them as useful or practical. While they will certainly respect their initiative and energy level, the rest of the Aries behavior is simply unacceptable in most matters. As a Capricorn, he is down to earth and is able to measure the situation rationally, they will keep their calm opinion on their partner’s tactlessness and resistance or even their idiocy. You can imagine how annoying this can be for an Aries, especially when you take into consideration their passionate need to set strong boundaries and be respected in every possible way.


In this particular case it would be better not to call this paragraph emotions, but understanding. Their problem is in how they understand each other to begin with. Early in their relationship, they will both likely have an image of the other person as someone they could become after making an effort for their growth. The problem is, no one here wants to change. Their emotions could easily be linked to this first image they had, however unrealistic it may be. So this is exactly what we would call a lack of understanding, because these two could be crazy in love with each other’s false image and crazy stubborn to change each other.


They both value independence, clarity and honesty, and in general their value system is not what creates problems for their relationship. Mostly they are in sync when it comes to seriously seeing the people they are surrounded with. The problem they have is in their unrealistic expectations based on the fact that they share some values.

Shared activities

Capricorn sometimes doesn’t understand why Aries wants to run at 6am. Aries doesn’t understand why Capricorn spends all night doing something extremely boring, only to be thorough when it has no value in this particular matter. What Aries doesn’t understand is that studiousness always has its value, just as Capricorn doesn’t understand their body’s physical need to rest and act on impulse from time to time.


This is not an easy relationship. None of the partners has a trace of lightness and blissful ignorance. This is why their relationship might seem like a competition to ruin the relationship in the best possible way. It’s hard to say who will come out on top, because both of them will feel gross most of the time and will be relieved that they eventually broke up. If they stubbornly decide that they love each other too much to let go, they would both likely bang their heads against a wall for years to come.
