This is a good match in terms of compatibility. Two Capricorns will usually want similar things out of life and understand each other well. Unless their ascendants fall in less solid signs, these two can rely on each other and provide one another with stability and security. Two Capricorns appreciate each other’s more underrated traits such as pragmatism and a solid work ethic, and they respect one another’s boundaries. Together, they can build a successful, productive, and stable life. Great achievements are possible when two Capricorns get together.
Although this is a highly compatible match, it may be difficult for two Capricorns to get things going in a romantic relationship because both tend to be cautious and reserved, particularly with new people. Capricorns do have hidden passions, but neither may be forceful enough in the initial stages of a relationship to unlock them in the other.
Another problem with the Capricorn-Capricorn pairing is that it may actually be too compatible. These two are unlikely to challenge one another’s beliefs and attitudes or help each other break free from ruts. This pair will find activities and routines they like and stick with them, which may prevent them from experiencing anything new. They may also encourage one another’s tendency toward gloomy pessimism. To make matters worse, neither can help the other relax because both are inclined to stay busy at all times and to worry excessively.
Capricorns also tend to distance themselves from emotional unpleasantness, so if things sour between two Capricorns, they can grow emotionally detached from one another or even coldly sarcastic and contemptuous rather than attempting to bridge the gap that has opened between them.
Despite these problems, there are many positive aspects to the double Capricorn pairing. Two Capricorns often share the same lifestyle preferences, so they do not pressure each other to engage in activities that either of them strongly dislikes. They are also not inclined to interfere with each other’s ambitions or their pursuit of self-improvement through learning, exercise, and other activities, but instead encourage positive lifestyle choices. And because both individuals are inclined toward frugality and practicality, they are unlikely to end up destitute or endanger their lives and their health. They probably will not disagree about too much and even when they do have a difference of opinion, they will not subject one another to embarrassing public scenes because Capricorns tend to be dignified and classy, even in the midst of conflict. These two can maintain a nice home and lead a good life together without drama, chaos, and emotional upheaval.
Capricorns are not emotionally expressive, sentimental, or romantic, but they are very supportive of their partners when they have established positive relationships. They are more likely to show their love with practical actions and gifts than splashy romantic gestures and talk. Two Capricorns will understand and appreciate this quality in each other, seeing the value in useful things and considerate actions. The relationship may seem cool to outsiders who do not understand the Capricorn way of interacting, but these two are inclined to express their love in substantial ways rather than through empty gestures.
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.
