These two bring out the best in each other and are good friends as well as lovers. They work hard to build solid foundations and a shiny future for themselves and family. Fiercely protective of the relationship they fight tooth and nail to patch up any cracks or divert undue influences.
These guys are swans – gracefully gliding down the river of happily ever after with half a dozen cygnets. They swim in the same direction and are soulmates for life.
Decoding Taurus and Capricorn friendships…
Close, close friends – Taurus/Capricorn are supportive and reliable. Both have carefully mapped out goals – Capricorn incentivizes Taurus to push forward and not give way to procrastination – Taurus convinces Capricorn that all work and no play makes the goat a dull sign. They are practical and realistic – excellent business partners who don’t engage in high risk ventures – team them up with a creative force such as Libra, Gemini or Aquarius and success is almost assured.
Good taste becomes them – discussions on music, movies and art are commonplace. The friendship does have a competitive edge – especially when it comes to owning latest releases and hottest brands but their practical natures usually prevent any rivalry getting out of hand. Sporting aficionados Taurus/Capricorn are excellent fishing, Golf and Gym buddies – all activities where talking is an optional extra.
First signs of attraction & compatibility…
A lot of nodding and expressions of “me too!” happen when Taurus and Capricorn click. They find each other extraordinarily interesting and Taurus instantly recognises an excellent motivator in Capricorn.
There’ll be some boasting – especially from Capricorn as they lay out career goals, education history and major achievements – the attraction generates a desire to impress. Friends pat themselves on the back for bringing Taurus and Capricorn but really, it’s about as hard as matching caviar with champagne.
The Taurus and Capricorn in relationships…
Professional and about building capital they are one of those couples who seem to have all boxes ticked. When two earth signs come together it’s like watching a magnificent skyscraper being built – floor by floor – steadily progressing upwards into the stratosphere. They carefully plan each relationship level from the foundations up – what may appear seamless in term of progress is actually micromanaged within an inch of its life.
Capricorn is about power and career progression – they network like crazy and steer Taurus towards the best connections for advancement. Taurus is obsessed with status – they select events with opportunities for social pages and educate Capricorn on name dropping with aplomb.
Taurus/Capricorn always appear poised in public and friends wonder if they ever fight – they do but just not in public – loyal and protective of each other these signs firmly believe in the phrase “United front”. They are likely to volunteer together – believing that social responsibility is part of a well-rounded person and good for the Curriculum Vitae.
Where they may encounter turbulence…
Both are hard taskmasters and not good at accepting failure – Taurus response is to blame someone else – Capricorn puts their head in the sand and opts for denial. This means that when things are going great – the sky’s the limit – but when one sign deviates from their career and lifestyle plan, harsh words and recriminations are unleashed. Failure must be an acceptable option in the 10 year plan or a relationship meltdown will occur.
Because Taurus/Capricorn are so ambitious there’s always a chance of crossing an ethical line in order to get ahead and shedding friends who are no longer socially useful. Selling one’s soul to the Devil creates distrust and a downward spiral in popularity – something which is bound to set the Bull against the Goat.
When Taurus and Capricorn fall in love…
When they fall in love the first surprise is Capricorn actually clears time in their diary for a relationship – that’s a red flag to signal something serious is going on. They may even delegate tasks or take time off to buy a new outfit whilst Taurus impresses with expensive gifts and swaps their steely reserve for a good chunk of day dreaming.
Taurus is stubbornness on a stick and Capricorns ego has a touch of narcissism so neither will want to appear too out of their depth or be the first to utter those three magic words. Expect something of a power struggle where they cancel dates or leave days between returning phone calls – just to prove each has the upper hand. This cat and mouse dance results in volcanic passion on the days when they are not playing control games.
Taurus and Capricorn sexual compatibility…
In the beginning its great – Taurus is a fixed sign meaning they prefer to initiate and play with in their comfort zone. Capricorn is cardinal – more willing to take risks in the bedroom but under their own direction and control. It’s this power struggle that can get in the way of just enjoying sex and injecting spontaneity.
Taurus/Capricorn need to cast their minds back to the relationships’ early days when passion often trumped planning and both could be bedroom leaders and followers. Sometimes Taurus and Capricorn end up in a sexless relationship because their careers and property port folios are simply far more exciting – and hey if it works, it works!
Taurus and Capricorn marriage compatibility…
Neither likes ambiguity – they require career and partnership titles for definition and clarity – in other words – my wife or husband is preferred to lover, partner or significant other. Both are family orientated – with a conservative, traditional twist. They’ll have a tasteful wedding – often in elegant gardens where guests circulate, network and swap the occasional business card. Family, friends and lots of VIPs are on the invite list.
Children are an excellent addition to the family dynamic keeping Taurus/Capricorn grounded and forcing them to push back on crazy workloads. These signs discover how to laugh and not sweat the small stuff when children are around. Sometimes they even do a complete 360 and undergo a tree or sea change – leaving the corporate life behind – and dedicating all their passion to family.
