When Aries and Capricorn come together in a love match, they must work hard to maintain their mutual energy. Their approaches can seem almost opposite to one another — Aries is all about acting without bothering to consider where the action is directed or what it will attain, while Capricorn is all about judging whether (or how much) it will benefit them before they take action. Aries moves fast and, to Capricorn, at least, seems to risk it all. Capricorn abhors unnecessary risk. They move at a slower pace, working inexhaustibly toward well-defined goals (usually related to career or other forms of public advancement). Both partners always get where they’re going, only in different ways — and usually where they’re going is totally different, too!
Aries is a Fire Sign and Capricorn is an Earth Sign. While Aries is dynamic, Capricorn is more grounded and practical. Capricorn’s approach is to ask themselves, ‘What good will this do as I work toward my main plan in life?’ while Aries simply sees what is desirable at the moment and goes after it with no set plan in mind.
Aries and Capricorns have a lot of common characteristics. Both of them are intelligent, motivated, and goal oriented. However, trouble brews due to them having different styles and ways of doing things. These differences can create tension in the otherwise smooth relationship.
What’s the best aspect of the Aries-Capricorn relationship? They each bring unique qualities to their union. Once they can learn to allow each other to be themselves they can blend well to make a whole. Theirs is a challenging relationship, but if they can learn from each other it’s worth it! As with any relationship based in mutual love and respect, most obstacles can be overcome with sound communication and goodwill.
ARIES & CAPRICORN TRUST
Since they are both in extremes and “all or nothing” 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 though, for when they are together, they seem to lose awareness of the things between them that should be treasured. One of them should have the sense to remind the other from time to time about the qualities that their bond includes.
ARIES & CAPRICORN EMOTIONS
In this special case it would be best not to call this paragraph “emotions”, but “understanding”. Their problem is in the way they understand each other to begin with. At the beginning of their relationship they will both probably have an image of the other person as someone they could become after some effort is put into their growth. The problem is that no one here wants to change. Their emotions could easily be connected to this first image they’ve had, however unrealistic it might be. So this is exactly what we would call the lack of understanding, because these two could be crazy in love with each other’s false image and crazy persistent to change one another.
ARIES & CAPRICORN VALUES
They both value independence, clarity and honesty, and in general their system of values is not what brings problems to their relationship. Mostly they are in sync when it comes to serious view of people they are surrounded with. The problem they have is in their unrealistic expectations founded on the fact that they share some values.
ARIES & CAPRICORN SHARED ACTIVITIES
Capricorn sometimes just doesn’t understand why Aries wants to run at 6 in the morning. Aries doesn’t understand why Capricorn would spend all night doing something extremely boring, just to be thorough when it has no value in this particular matter. What Aries doesn’t understand is that studiousness always has its value, as much as Capricorn doesn’t understand the physical need of their body to rest and act on impulse from time to time.
This is not an easy relationship. None of the partners has any 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 is hard to say who will get out of it a winner, for they will both feel lousy most of the time and be relieved that they finally separated. If they stubbornly decide they love each other too much to let each other go, both of them would probably bang their heads against a wall for years to come.
