Capricorn and Aries are a very difficult match. The ever cautious and down-to-earth Goat will dig in its heels when pressured to move quickly while the impulsive Ram feels fettered by Capricorn’s restraint. Still, both give everything they have to a relationship and if Aries takes the time to break through Capricorn’s protective shell, they can overcome their differences – at least for a while.
Ruled by Fire, Aries always seems to be in a hurry. Energetic to the point of being exhausting to others, the Ram inspires admiration with its courage and recklessness. Aries loves competition and often spends a lot of time both watching and participating in various sports, where the Ram excels. This recklessness and energy often give Aries the appearance of supreme confidence, but deep down the Ram is insecure. This can result in overcompensation and jealousy.
Honesty to the point of tactlessness is another Aries trait that some find hard to bear. If there is a truth that one doesn’t wish attention drawn to, the Ram is sure to notice and say something. The reckless Ram doesn’t do this to be hurtful, is simply unaware the comments are causing pain. Despite this, Aries is very generous and will cheerfully lend its plentiful energy to helping anywhere assistance is needed.
Careful Capricorn never does anything impulsively. Even when it appears the Goat is moving quickly you can rest assured that each move has been scrutinized from every angle. The root cause of this is practical Capricorn’s desire to control its surroundings and circumstances. Pushing a Goat to move faster will only trigger the inherent stubbornness every Capricorn holds. Anyone interested in attaching a Goat will have to bring persistence and patience.
The serious Goat often feels as though the weight of the world sits on its wide shoulders. This comes with Capricorn’s desire for order and determination to get it. The Goat tends to take everything upon itself, convinced that no one else can do it up to Capricorn’s finicky standards. If Capricorn cannot find relief from responsibility in some way, the Goat eventually becomes pessimistic and melancholy. Even when depressed, determined Capricorn will continue to work hard at getting things done.
How is it possible that two strong personalities with vastly different approaches in life can build a working relationship? The key here is a match in values. Both the Goat and the Ram are honest and generous. If the two can start there and build a relationship on their integrity, the connection can provide much needed passion for the Goat and propel the Ram into a more stable and successful future.
The thrill of the chase is what will initially attract Aries to Capricorn. The Ram loves a challenge and catching the guarded Goat definitely fits the bill. Aries admires Capricorn’s ambition, and the Goat appreciates the Ram’s energy and drive. As long as Aries feels as though it will win in the end, the Ram will take the effort to tame its reckless impetuosity and slow down the pace enough to satisfy the Goat’s need for time to assess the likelihood of success in the relationship.
As with other impulsive and emotional signs, pairing with Capricorn can provide the structure and persistence needed to help Aries reach the finish line in its goals. Aries can provide innovative ideas that Capricorn would never consider on its own. The Ram is great at starting and the Goat always finishes so the two provide an advantageous complement in this area.
Passion is far from lacking in this match. Both Aries and Capricorn revel in lovemaking and make a great pair in the bedroom. Once trust is established, Aries encourages the Goat to relax some of its legendary disciplines and may even be able to coax the Goat to be a little reckless as well. The Goat’s scrupulous honesty and dedication to the bond give insecure Aries the reassurance it needs.
While it is possible for opposites to complement one another perfectly, this is not necessarily the case with Capricorn and Aries. The Goat and the Ram are both leaders and, when paired, they will often lock horns on how things should be done. Capricorn will not be rushed, and Aries will not be held back. Aries’ disregard of the potential dangers of its rash actions terrifies the practical Goat, while Capricorn’s insistence on planning and careful consideration throws cold water on the Ram’s flame.
The Ram is driven toward its goals but finds it hard to stay the course to completion. Ambitious and disciplined, Capricorn can trigger the competitive nature of Aries. Since the Goat really only competes with itself, Capricorn is unlikely to notice this, which further irritates the Ram who feels that the Goat doesn’t consider Aries worthy of competing with. This leads to envy and will eventually lead to increasingly reckless behavior from the Ram which can result in an erosion of vital trust between the two.
While Capricorn is tireless in working toward its objectives, the Goat needs plenty of quiet time to decompress and rest. Home is Capricorn’s peaceful oasis and a place to recover from the stresses of the day. Aries is a fireball of energy and never seems to need any down time. To the Ram, home is just a place to shower and keep things between activities. This disparity can easily lead to much friction about the couple’s activates if the Ram isn’t willing to do things on its own.
The Goat and Ram seem designed to lock horns. Both strong personalities with very different preferences and energy levels, Capricorn and Aries have to work hard to fit into each other’s lives. Yet their honesty and drive act as a considerable attraction and the pairing is passionate if nothing else. They make better lovers than full domestic partners if the Goat will accept such a limited relationship. Still, this dance can bring out the best in both as long as the pair is careful not to step on one another’s toes.
