Upside: Dependability; sensuality; sense of service; patient with timing; value lifelong love; traditionalists; natural living enthusiasts; high standards; integrity and ethics are basis for a solid commitment. Downside: overbearing (Capricorn) vs. bending over backwards (Virgo); demanding; never satisfied; hard driving; work is priority; cold realists.
Virgo and Capricorn are a sweetly matched pair that can become wholly devoted to one another. Neither wants a fly-by-night affair, and will instantly pick up on the earthy depth as promising for a long term relationship. Both need reassurance of respect, and find loyalty and enduring love a big draw. They intuit what the other likes/dislikes, and try to provide tangible, but understated signs of affection.
As two of the life's work oriented Zodiac signs, Virgo and Capricorn might meet on the job or at a conference. Fulfilling work is a priority, and here's another area where there's mutual support.
The particulars of life make these two swoon, though they might not show it on the outside. Talk on dates revolves around strategies for actualizing goals, or in Virgo's case, self-improvement. Capricorn puts out stellar PR, and inspires Virgo to be bold -- not self-deprecating -- with the way they present their gifts to the world.
Virgo intuits the Goat's desire to achieve, and can be the number one fan. Capricorn feels supported by Virgo's desire to serve, and finds their practical advice very helpful. Capricorn's intense drive shows Virgo how to envision a master plan, encompassing all their interests. When both have meaty careers that make their days full, they can sink into a rhythm of productivity that works. Having that rhythm in place actually makes both of these signs more relaxed!
One difference here is that Virgo doesn't give a fig often about status, while Capricorn eyes the top of the social heap. Capricorn is willing to work hard, but is known as a sign of delegated power. The cardinality of Capricorn gives them a drive to wrangle people and resources, that's not present in the (typical) Virgo who is fine to have the work be its own reward. This can lead to off balance power dynamics or lack of respect that takes a toll.
Capricorn admires self-starters, and will appreciate the Virgo work ethic and resourcefulness. But the authoritative Cappy can find it hard to relate to a Virgo that's playing it small (modest). The confidence of Capricorn is a tonic for Virgo, as long as it doesn't come with heavy judgment. Virgo already has that area covered, in the demands they put on themselves! Both signs have high expectations for themselves in life, and want to see inner visions reflected around them in tangible forms. Much will depend on life direction, and whether they are a fit in the day to day business of living. A sense of shared purpose -- raising a family, as just one example -- is the superglue for Virgo and Capricorn!
A demanding, bossy Capricorn can be hard on the nerves of sensitive Virgo. Capricorn benefits from being with a flexible partner, one that instinctively knows how to 'process' stuff, and purify their system. Virgo can teach Capricorn the art of wringing themselves out through exercise and making time in the day to unwind. Both need solitude, though Capricorn is known to retreat into a cave of melancholy. Virgo has wisdom to share with the Goat about renewal, and going with the flow of life.
Virgo's appearance has an essence (and smell) of clean, and Capricorn also strives for a pulled-together look. They are sexually compatible, and Capricorn has no problem taking the lead. Doing things together physically, both in and out of the bedroom, keeps the tie strong. It's important to make having fun a priority, like getting out into nature, camping, walks in the park, bike rides, skiing, hiking, etc. The pull may be to rooting in, but it stays fresh when the circle of experience together is everwidening, too.
