What Does Capricorn Look for in a Relationship?
Capricorns are driven. And, they’re drawn to partners who share similar characteristics. If you’re the ambitious type who also seeks success and status, you might be a good match for a Capricorn. “Capricorn rules the 10th house, the house of career and reputation so this is very important to them,” says astrologer Amanda Jay of Sacred Moon Space.
Capricorns are old souls. They need a partner who doesn’t shy away from commitment and the hard work a relationship entails. The good thing is they tend to be straightforward about how they feel, and what they need and want, so you won’t be left second guessing.
This sign doesn’t tend to wear their emotions on their sleeve like Pisces or Cancer. How much they open up to their partner will depend on the person.
Jay says, “They may often show a different side of themselves to their partners than is seen in their career life. Or, they may take themselves too seriously and not know how to allow themselves to open up to [a] partner and let go of their career-oriented self.”
And, it’s important you their career and personal goals will consume a lot of their attention. As Jay says, “Sometimes they work too hard and overextend themselves, not knowing when to stop working.”
They need someone who is aware that they may work long hours and struggle to maintain boundaries between their work and personal life. On the flip side, they’re likely to be excellent at supporting you when you need help reaching your goals.
How to Flirt With a Capricorn
When flirting with a Capricorn, you need to know they’re direct, so you don’t have to play coy. Like other Earth signs, they know what they want and aren’t afraid of saying so. When it comes to flirting, act natural and confident.
If you really want to impress a Capricorn, tell them your career plan and goals and watch the goat’s ears perk up. Make sure to be honest and don’t boast, because Capricorn is more likely to appreciate your honesty than your achievements.

Capricorn Compatibility With the 12 Zodiac Signs
Capricorn and Aries
These two zodiac signs aren’t very compatible as a love match. Where Capricorns are practical and methodical, Aries are impulsive. This can lead to Capricorn feeling like they’re parenting their partner, which is never fun.
Capricorn and Taurus
Capricorn and Taurus are a well-matched pair. Both are practical and down-to-earth and really understand one another. While Capricorn is ambitious and hard-working, Taurus has no trouble enjoying life’s pleasures. This can be especially good for the couple, and not just in the bedroom. Taurus can help Capricorn relax and Capricorn can motivate Taurus.
Capricorn and Gemini
Capricorns tend to be reserved at the beginning. Geminis are not. Both zodiac signs are intellectual, but they come at life completely differently. While they could make for a fun fling, Gemini is way too free a spirit for a long haul with Capricorn.
Capricorn and Cancer
Capricorns can come off as cold and unemotional. Cancers, on the other hand are all about the emotions. If the two can meet in the middle, Cancer can teach Cap how to open up and be vulnerable. And, the goat can teach the crab how to be more in balance. In the long run, Capricorn might not be romantic enough for Cancer.
Capricorn and Leo
Leos are not shy when it comes to showing their affection and love. But, Capricorns aren’t very demonstrative. If a Leo is the type to take this personally, it can take quite a bit of work and communication for this duo to make it past the fling stage.
Capricorn and Virgo
This pair of earth signs is very compatible. Both astrological signs are grounded, hard-working, and relationship-focused. As long as they don’t get bored with each other, this match can result in a long-lasting, happy relationship.
Capricorn and Libra
This pair is very different. Air sign Libras are creative, loving, and live for change. Capricorns like to see things through from start to finish instead of running off to start a new project. While this pairing isn’t impossible, it will definitely take more work.
Capricorn and Scorpio
Both Scorpio and Capricorn are intensely private zodiac signs. Scorpios tend to be a bit more sensitive and work through their feelings and thoughts privately. But, like the goat, they’re also intense and passionate. In this relationship, Scorpio can soften Capricorn, and Capricorn can provide stability to Scorpio.
Capricorn and Sagittarius
Sagittarius are enthusiastic and optimistic. They love adventure and can come off as pretty restless, which is likely to drive Capricorn mad. But, if they can find some shared ground, they may find they have a lot of similar goals.
Capricorn and Capricorn
It doesn’t get much better than two goats. You won’t have to worry about your partner thinking you’re controlling or unloving as they have the same traits as you. Worse case, you’ll be arguing over who is more organized or responsible.
Capricorn and Aquarius
Capricorns live for rules and Aquarius has a serious rebellious streak. This match is best as a casual fling, during which Aquarius can try and help the goat be less rigid.
Capricorn and Pisces
Pisces will take Capricorn’s hard edges and soften them with their sensitivity and compassion. Capricorn can help give the fish a bit of direction and stability. If these two can manage their differences, this could be a strong, life-long relationship.
