Saturnian Love

Capricorn and Capricorn is a pairing of deep understanding or a constant locking of horns. Most likely, it'll be a satisfying mix of both. After all, Capricorn, an (impactful) cardinal sign, would get bored and lose respect for a timid lover.

Looking in the Cappy mirror, they avoid the courtship games of other signs. Making plans to meet could sound like they're business colleagues. They'll keep a formal facade, until they're sure it's a go. Neither is put off by a brusque demeanor. Both appreciate keeping things light, with short meetings, until there's a basis for more.

The Seagoat is sensual, and appreciative of a well-crafted meal. If there's physical chemistry, this alliance moves quickly into tactile pleasures of the sexual kind. As an earth sign, Cappy is a natural when it comes to physical intimacy. They appreciate the bonding of sex, as an a bonding agent in building their relationship. A Capricorn with one of its kind, finds a lusty lover with a bawdy humor. The Seagoat's subtle humor is often surprisingly X rated!

Controlling Agents

Capricorn likes to feel in control in love, so there could be some power struggles here. But an instinct for what's driving the need for domination leads to breakthroughs. A Seagoat won't shrink in a confrontation, upping the chances that the duel ends in a draw.

They're both looking for the same sure thing, and a return on their love investment. Each gives sound feedback, and these times of clashing help each refine their strategy. They're great partners, with supporting career, building up a home, raising a family and being part of a community. The best part is relaxing into the golden years, with a lifetime of accomplishments and memories to reflect on.

Each no longer feels like a loner, since the Seagoat knows that the hard melancholy comes in cycles, sometimes to morose, impenetrable extremes. They know when to leave the other alone, and when to provoke them out of their gloom.

When trust allows them to share their secrets, true love begins. A test will be the dark clouds that pass through these complex souls. They're vulnerable to creating patterns in relationship that draw them down into the muck. It's important to keep striving for self-awareness, so there can be renewal. And to be sure what they're creating is balanced with light times.

Austerity and Aspirations

Capricorn is a sign that strives for achievement, status and worldly wealth. It helps their chances if both bring a sense of having climbed mountains, to the relationship. This takes the pressure off, and enables them to tend to other areas. They'll thrive when there's mutual support for career goals. Hitting that balance, where both feel that their sphere is respected, is vital.

Once committed, they have a tendency to stick together. Two masters of the earthly realm make great partners in a family business. They plan the future with financial stability in mind, and fill their home with antiques and other timeless treasures. Neither likes to throw things out, and will support that resourceful hoarding of stuff.

The extended family becomes important, as they're happy when the roots of the tree are deep and wide. When other planets are in harmony, they're able to create a solid home base. The enjoyment of life, especially sensual pleasures, helps their bond to stay fresh.

Capricorn and Capricorn Love Story

Successful but unhappy...

I've married the cap man who I deep down knew I should not marry. I guess I thought that was my last chance and I wasn't even 30 - how stupid I was! A beautiful and a smart woman but it just felt like it was the right timing. A couple of years later, he pushes me to grow in my career before planning the family; financial stability is more important to him than a family and having children, like there will ever be a perfect moment! The longer I wait, more frustrated I become. He also doesn't show feelings. Being also a cap and opposing to him, I love being touched and love hugs and attention; he doesn't give it to me, he doesn't want it. The feeling of frustration burns inside me, a desire of a physical attention dies inside me with a hidden anger and a lost desire to be with him. I hate the situation. I want a way out of it. The longer I wait, the worse it becomes.
