But did you know that Astrology dictates that your zodiac sign has a bearing on your compatibility with other people in your interpersonal relationships? Today, we’re looking at one such pairing: specifically, what the zodiac says about Capricorn and Taurus compatibility.

Usually, when we think of the Horoscope, it’s just day-to-day tidbits of knowledge. Things we can expect to happen, things we want to happen, or just how we might feel that day based on the stars. But there’s a whole vast library of knowledge and a depth to your sign you may have never known. The zodiac tells us that our sign has a large impact on our personalities, on who we are.

Capricorn Compatibility with Taurus: an In-Depth Look

So, do Taurus and Capricorn get along or are the two signs at odds? Before we get into that let’s take a refresher course on who the two signs are as individuals, starting with Taurus. Taurus, the lovable bull of the zodiac, governs the period from April 20 to May 20. Inherent in their elemental nature as an earth sign and their symbol of the bull, Taurus individuals are stubborn, hardy and strong people. Because of having Venus as their planetary ruler, they are also surprisingly loving and tender individuals deep down.

Capricorn, with the symbol of a sea goat, governs the period between December 22 to January 19. They are complex individuals, their symbol reflecting the duality of their nature. Both stern, materialistic and focused, but also gentle, emotional and introspective. Just like Taurus, they are Earth signs, and, having Saturn as a planetary ruler, are obsessed with making an impact within their limited time. Capricorns are as a result, driven, passionate and focused people who learn to slow down and mellow out later in life.

Lastly, before we discuss their compatibility, what do other signs have to take from this article? Is there anything you can take from this article, dear reader, if you’re not a Cap or a Taurus? The answer is a hard yes, there’s definitely something to take away from this, no matter what your sign is. In this article, we’re looking at all the reasons a relationship between Cap and Taurus might work (or fail), and how you can learn from it! More on that below, but without further ado, a look at Capricorn and Taurus compatibility, below:

Capricorn and Taurus Compatibility in a Nutshell


Taurus and Capricorn form one of the strongest bonds between any two signs in the zodiac. This is because they possess many similarities, favoring the same things and holding the same values as like-minded Earth signs. There is a natural magnetism between the two that keeps them together, whether that’s as friends or something more. What are the key traits that make the relationship between the two work so well?

For starters, both place a lot of importance on the material, and good old-fashioned hard work. Capricorn admires Taurus’ stubbornness, relating it to their determination. Likewise, Taurus admires Capricorn’s ability to navigate both the material and spiritual with ease. Both prefer stable, slow-burn and solid relationships grounded in trust and effort. Taurus, especially towards younger Capricorns, is a bastion of calm and steadfast nature that will help calm down the ever-antsy Cap.

Easily, the two signs complement each other’s strengths and weaknesses. They’re equally strong individuals with passion and drive. More similar than different, it’s not hard for the signs to find common ground and understand each other. Both signs even have a hidden soft side that the other helps bring out. Truly, these two are a powerful pair, but are they more compatible as friends or lovers?

Taurus and Capricorn Friendship

A friendship between Taurus and Cap is basically a healthy rivalry. Both signs feel as though they have something to bring to the table. They fuel each other’s fires with their drive, motivation and passion. Additionally, their love for stability means it’s unlikely for either sign to change or drift apart from the other. It’s clear that these two make a great pair!

When they hang out, both Taurus and Capricorn are massive couch potatoes. Taurus works very hard and then collapses at the end of the day, and Capricorn is prone to burnout. So it’s easy to find these two sprawled out on a comfy bed or sofa when they get together. Additionally, due to the earthy nature of these signs, they prefer more lowkey, relaxed and longer hangouts. These two are real homebodies, and can lounge about in each other’s houses the whole day.

What You Can Learn

As promised, we’ll leave you with tips that Taurus and Capricorn’s successful relationships provide. A little bit of healthy competition is good for your friend group. As long as it doesn’t become insulting, mean-spirited or hits below the belt, go for it! Additionally, find people who match your energy and like to do the things you do. Friendships last longer when you can bond over shared activities that both sides enjoy and can continue doing long term.

Taurus and Capricorn Relationship

In a romantic relationship, these two are even more compatible! Capricorn and Taurus are both hard working, but Capricorn can give Taurus something they don’t usually have: ambition. Taurus works hard and is a dutiful lover, but doesn’t look beyond taking care of their family and loved ones. Capricorn allows Taurus to look towards the future and aim for greater heights. What about Taurus?


Taurus on the other hand, provides Capricorn with something they definitely need. While they are famous for their stubbornness, Taurus is also a gentle, dutiful and loyal lover. They allow Capricorn to get much needed relaxation and are a safe place for Cap to unwind on their many burnouts. Due to their similar values and goals in the future, they can really go long term together. These two signs are each other’s castles, each other’s strengths in a romantic relationship.

When it comes to physical intimacy, these two definitely have it beat! Capricorn is a mysterious, complex individual, who the stubborn Taurus infinitely desires to know more about. Taurus, on the other hand, has always had a natural, magnetic attractiveness to them. Maybe it’s having Venus as a planetary ruler, but many signs actually yearn for their touch. Whatever the case, Taurus and Capricorn will have an interesting and steamy romantic life in the bedroom.

Capricorn Man and Taurus Woman Compatibility

A Capricorn man sweeps Taurus women away with their drive and ambition. She is easily seduced by his passion and the depth of his personality that leaves other guys in the dust. On the other hand, he loves how gentle and tender his loyal lover is in a Taurus woman. He can easily relax with her, and open up about the soft side in himself that he’s probably never shown to anyone before. His mystery and her beauty are also a perfect pair in the bedroom.

Taurus Man and Capricorn Woman Compatibility

While not as electric as the prior match-up, this pair certainly has their strengths. A Taurus man strikes his Capricorn woman as the only man who won’t get in the way of her dreams. Won’t pin her down to become just another housewife or mother. Likewise, a Taurus man will love providing for his Capricorn woman when, in her lofty dreams and pursuits, she encounters a dead end or crashes entirely. He’s just what she needs.

What You Can Learn

You don’t need Taurus’ electric attraction or Capricorn’s utter mystery to build a successful relationship. Just look at what these two do best. They’re there for each other, and have a relationship built on respect, love and loyalty. In ups and downs, they provide for each other and make each other better. Like the Earth signs, become a romantic partner that your lover can depend on.

Pros and Cons of the Pair


We’ve gone over the pros plenty in this article, but let’s have a refresher course just to play it safe. They complement each other’s strengths and weaknesses. Taurus loves to provide for Cap, who likes to dream and act big. Capricorn gives Taurus ambition. Both signs are loyal and steadfast towards each other, thinking in the long term.

With so many pros, you might find it strange that we’ve left out the cons. That’s because they’re less likely to occur during the relationship, but before. Taurus and Capricorn, unfortunately, as Earth signs, are also not likely to trust each other for a while. They need to get to know each other better before reaching this stage… However, due to their stone-faced nature, and how they only show their hard sides to strangers they’re unlikely to become that close to begin with as a result.

What You Can Learn

The tragedy of these two signs is that they may never meet or get to know each other to the level where they’re comfortable. Sometimes, you’ve gotta take a lesson from Cap and take a risk. Sure, you’re likely to hurt yourself in the short term. But, on the other hand, if you keep looking, and have an open heart, you might just find the one around the corner. Don’t let fear of rejection control your life.

The TakeAway…

That’s everything there is to know about Capricorn and Taurus as a pair, whether that’s as friends or something more. These two signs make a great couple, with all the right pieces in place. No matter the nature of their relationship, these two can go long term. They do have a problem when it comes to first impressions, however. But, as long as they are willing to give each other a chance and open up to each other, they’re one of the strongest pairs in the zodiac.

Before we end, we’d like to remind everyone that you can emulate the best traits of Cap and Taurus, even if you’re not either of these signs, or even an earth sign! Astrology is not a precise and limiting science, plus human nature and potential tells us we are capable of growth. The zodiac teaches us that the stars were never meant to control us, but only guide us. You are still the captain of your own ship. The master of your fate.
