What you’ve got here is one sign with a forensic eye for detail and another who paints with an incredibly broad brushstroke. The possibility of driving each other crazy is real.
Leo makes grand announcements – they’re going to build a palace, run for President, win gold at the Olympics – without actual doing the ground work – that comes later. Capricorn draws detailed blueprints, timelines and risk assessments before taking a trip to the library and is practical to the back teeth.
To avoid the urge to strangle each other they must agree to disagree and be prepared for epic battles when trying to make a decision that suits both. It’s a shaky relationship which requires a lot of hard work.
Decoding Leo and Capricorn friendships…
Leo/Capricorn friendships often evolve at work. They have totally different approaches but both are attracted to prestige and are willing to work hard to get to the top of their field. Imagine them working in the same organization – Leo puts their hand up for high risk projects and razzle dazzles when delivering a pitch – Capricorn researches every aspect of a proposal before taking it on and delivers a comprehensive power point in the board room.
If they are up for the same promotions they end up as frenemies – undermining each other to colleagues and bosses – but if they have vastly different roles and are not in competition, respect and admiration can blossom. It’s the sort of friendship where they go for drink on a Friday night to debrief and play squash during the week – it’s bound to be a titanic battle to the last point. Leo/Capricorn aren’t fuzzy and warm as friends it’s more like a comfortable, casual mate-ship – 20 years can go by without either inviting the other into their homes.
First signs of attraction & compatibility…
Capricorn is more likely to be attracted to Leo than the other way around – they’ll watch the Lion prance, preform and captivate with their personality and either instantly dislike or feel uncomfortably drawn to them. If it’s the latter, Capricorn goes into super sleuth mode, scouring social media and interrogating mutual acquaintances to build a Leo profile.
Next comes strategy and execution and somewhere down the track Leo realizes they are attracted to this strange person who keeps running into them and seems to know their entire back story. Capricorn throws in much stroking of the royal ego for good measure and before you know it there’s flirting and sexy body language happening. One things for sure – Capricorn always does their homework!
The Leo and Capricorn in relationships…
Leo is fire – they burn brightly and like the sun are the center of their own solar system. It’s easy for them to warm most people up within seconds – however this won’t be the case with hard-to-impress Capricorn. Once in a relationship Leo realizes that praise from the Mountain Goat is rare and there’s an expectation of following through on promises. Capricorn is earth – steady, solid and grounded – once they’ve bagged a Leo the notion of providing endless praise wears off and they only give credit where credit is really due. This can result in a very sulky Leo and a disgruntled Capricorn.
If a happy medium is reached it might be through their hard-working natures and love of “stuff”. Both have expensive tastes and are slaves to fashion. Collecting beautiful things and being stylishly seen in all the right places puts them on a natural high. They also enjoy luxury holidays and are spotted in places like Paris and the Bahamas. The desire to form a power couple and be lauded in their respective fields is also a unifying force with both going all out to facilitate each other success. You never know – hard work might just keep them together.
Where they may encounter turbulence…
Fixed sign Leo wants passion – they thrive on excitement and optimism – on the other hand cardinal sign Capricorn seeks calm, surety and predictability. The Lion is reactive – the Mountain goat proactive and these differences result in clashes and criticism. Sometimes it’s seems they are shutting down each other’s very essence.
The lion becomes despondent and even depressed when not receiving enough attention and affection and Capricorn gets anxious when things are too random or haphazard. Capricorn needs to be more emotionally open and Leo less manic for this relationship to work.
When Leo and Capricorn fall in love…
Sometimes Leo just wants to keep it light but Capricorn needs – not so much a commitment – but to know they are moving forward. This usually results in several break ups with Leo running from the intensity and Capricorn throwing their hands up in frustration.
When things are clicking Capricorn exhibits first time ever behaviors like PDAS and saying yes to last minute dates without the required research and preparation time. Leo by contrast is in awe of Capricorn – so much self-control is attractive and intriguing to a sign that goes from 0 to 100 in a nanosecond.
Dates are lush affairs – neither does things by half – although Capricorn meticulously keeps within the budget. They’ll do high end dinners, Broadway musicals, sporting events in the corporate box and wine and cheese trails. It might be hard for Capricorn to get a word in edgewise with effusive Leo but in the beginning, they are happy to just look adoring and enthralled.
Leo and Capricorn sexual compatibility…
It’s not going to be easy to find a happy medium here. Leo is loud and showy and wildly uninhibited whereas Capricorn is intensely private and takes time to feel sexually comfortable. The Lion mustn’t rush Capricorn or make them feel prudish – that just results in complete emotion and physical shutdown.
Alternatively, it’s not advisable for Capricorn to keep Leo in a permanent state of sexual frustration or they’ll just look elsewhere. Couples sex therapy wouldn’t go astray, with the focus on achieving intimacy – alternatively strip tease classes for Capricorn and a book on tantric sex for Leo might teach them sensuality and patience.
Leo and Capricorn marriage compatibility…
There’s one good thing about this couple getting married – If Leo/Capricorn do make it to the alter you can be sure they realize the challenges ahead and are willing to work hard at pushing through barriers. Expect a beautiful wedding – Capricorn is a traditionalist and Leo loves the theater that comes with religion so it will probably be high mass in a cathedral or the cultural equivalent. Their home is designed by the hottest new architect in town and neighbors catch them walking an exotic pair of pedigree dogs every weekend.
Children make a nice addition and excellent fashion statement with Capricorn providing the discipline and Leo the rough and tumble. Head butting occurs over differing parenting styles but children are loved and provided with the best of everything. A village really does raise these offspring – nannies and grandparents are utilized frequently to allow the steady progression of Leo/Capricorns careers. These signs never quite understand each other but continuous compromise builds a stronger foundation for longevity.
