Hi Libra! Ruled by Venus, the planet named for the deity of love and beauty, Libra seeks an attractive mate who can serve as their consort in building a life of grace and refinement. After all, the Scales are known for their balance, elegance, and charm. Perhaps the most poised sign in the zodiac, Libra is also socially minded. Although Libra and Capricorn horoscopes aren’t usually attracted to each other, the Scales might feel intrigued by a Goat.

“Enter Capricorn. The Goat is ruled by Saturn, the planet associated with discipline, maturity, conservatism, and ambition. Cap and Libra tend to have different beliefs and values.”

Libra feels deeply moved by beauty—Capricorn is more concerned with the bottom line than with appearances. Libra seeks justice and equality, while Capricorn wants to be in charge. Libra is more likely to pair up with fellow air signs or a fire sign rather than an earth sign like Cap. However, if circumstances throw them together, these two become curious enough about each other. Their relationship is likely to be driven by shared interests than passion. If they marry, they can have a successful union—both take their responsibilities to their partner seriously. The Goat and the Scales can learn from each other. Libra teaches Capricorn to relax and instills an appreciation for art and nature. Capricorn helps Libra become more decisive.

Are Libra and Capricorn a Good Match?

If these two team up as business partners, they can achieve great success. Capricorn possesses determination and stamina. Libra’s charm can disarm business rivals. These two signs also share a negative trait: at times they can persuade themselves that their ends justify their means.

“Cap admires Libra’s ability to charm others, however they can also feel suspicious of this skill. Meanwhile Libra often finds the Goat harsh and judgmental.”

To form a friendship, Libra and Capricorn need some common ground—mutual hobbies or beliefs that they can discuss. This foundation can help them overlook their differences. Capricorn tends to become pushy and overbearing to get what they want. They may seek to dominate Libra. However, the Goat may find this more difficult than they expected. Libra is known for their tact. Many Libras have mastered the dark side of diplomacy.

They can be highly adept at manipulating people. Libra may appear to acquiesce to Capricorn’s authoritarian behavior while finding some subtle way to thwart Cap’s goals. A Libra who has not developed this talent may feel controlled by their Capricorn mate. Sexually, Capricorns range from repressed to lustful. Either way, in the beginning, Libra may have to draw on all their relationship skills to encourage Capricorn to relax and to enjoy pleasing their partner. However, Capricorns tend to become more spontaneous and generous as they age, so a Libra matched with a mature Cap may find them to be a caring lover.

Libra and Capricorn Compatibility: The key to a successful relationship

Mistrust can create a Grand Canyon-sized gulf between Libra-Capricorn couples. Capricorn has learned to lie to climb the career ladder. Libra tells “white lies” to maintain peace. Both of them are prone to straying if unhappy in a relationship. If Capricorn fails to satisfy Libra’s craving for romance, Libra may look elsewhere. The more lusty type of Goat enjoys adding notches to their bedpost.

“For this relationship to work, they must communicate in an atmosphere of honesty and equality. Libra must let go of their need to avoid conflict by saying what their partner wants to hear.”

Capricorn must release their desire to dominate every discussion. They may find the pressure on their relationship decreases if they maintain separate residences. Conservative Capricorn might find it easier to accept an unusual arrangement if they think of it as custom-fit rather than untraditional. As a Libra, you have a strong need to experience a loving partnership. Fluctuations in your match or unreliability in your partner cause you deep emotional distress. Yet your match with Capricorn doesn’t have to remain a troubling mystery. You can gain insight and clarity by consulting an Everclear astrology advisor. A zodiac compatibility and birth chart reading can help you understand how to cope with your specific relationship challenges.
