This is usually a good combination, provided that other elements in their natal zodiacs are not unfavorable. Capricorn and Taurus share a number of traits that increase their compatibility. Both tend to be stable, sensible, and practical, and they seek financial security and value reliability in their partners, so these two are well-matched in terms of the traits they appreciate in others. They often share common goals and lifestyle preferences as well, though Taurus is typically more laid back and self-indulgent, while Capricorn has a tendency toward stoicism and self-denial.
Tauruses have a number of traits that increase their compatibility with Capricorns. The Taurean warmth and easy going nature can melt the cool Capricorn exterior. Capricorns are wary about making themselves vulnerable and Taurus is one of the few signs that can win a Capricorn’s trust. Peace-loving Taurus is unlikely to emotionally threaten or provoke Capricorn, and is therefore less likely to trigger defensive hostility or retreat. Taurus doesn’t like ugly emotional scenes any more than Capricorn does, so neither individual is likely to seek drama in a relationship.
Taurus and Capricorn can accomplish a lot working together, whether completing household improvement projects or establishing a new business. Their good sense and solid work ethics enable them to see things through and increase the likelihood of success for whatever they do.
In a romantic relationship, Capricorn and Taurus tend to be quite harmonious. Capricorn’s sense of humor and Taurus’s tolerant nature reduce the likelihood of conflicts. However, there is a risk that these two will fall into a routine and never do anything new together. Both are cautious by nature, so they don’t encourage each other to step out of their respective comfort zones. On the other hand, this can be viewed as a positive feature of this match because these two are unlikely to goad one another into self-destructive behavior.
Although this pairing may not be exceptionally romantic in a love relationship, these two individuals should have a healthy sex life and are also inclined to enjoy one another’s company day to day, becoming good friends as well as lovers. They have similar preferences in terms of lifestyle and socializing, and like to spend time at home together. Active Capricorn will encourage Taurus to stay fit and Taurus will help Capricorn relax more, so both individuals are likely to receive health benefits from this match.
Note: There is more to astrological compatibility than sun signs alone. Other elements in a person’s natal zodiac also play a role. Ascendants (rising signs), moon signs, and other planetary placements and aspects also shape personality and affect compatibility. For example, a Capricorn with Leo rising will be more extroverted than a typical Capricorn, and a Taurus with Aries rising or the moon in Sagittarius will be more compatible with Sagittarius than a typical Taurus.
