At first glance matching Capricorn with Pisces seems like a disaster waiting to happen. After all, what could a cool, ambitious climber want with an emotional dreamer? Upon deeper scrutiny, however; their differences can complement each other and make the sum of the relationship greater than its parts.
Like the Goat that symbolizes it, no climb is too high or steep for determined Capricorn. This sign seeks success in some form or another above all things and has the energy and drive to make it happen. While determination gets Capricorn where it wants to be, it also results in a very stubborn personality who can simply run over a weaker partner.
An Earth sign, Capricorn is solid and methodical. Capricorn’s love of logic often makes the Goat seem cold and emotionless. Cool and aloof, it can be hard to get to know a Capricorn. The Goat is very cautious in forming any relationship and for good reason – once careful Capricorn’s heart has been won there is an endless supply of love and loyalty to be had.
Of all the water signs, Pisces’ character most closely matches the qualities of its element. Creative and mutable, Pisces is a dreamer who goes with the flow, letting life carry it along wherever the currents may go. A Pisces spends a lot of time in its own head, and while it has no trouble coming up with amazing and creative ideas, the Fish often lacks the will to bring them to fruition in the real world.
Pisces lives in a world of pure emotion and falls in love easily. Very loyal to its partner once committed, Pisces makes a sensual lover and gentle companion. The Fish loves romance and is generally the one to keep that element alive in a relationship. Because Pisces allows heart to rule head, the Fish is often unlucky in love. This can make for a “once bitten, twice shy” philosophy when it comes to relationships and Pisces often has a hard time truly trusting its partner.
How can cold, ambitious Capricorn possibly get along with a romantic dreamer like Pisces? The real secret lies under the calm cool exterior of Capricorn which hides an emotional and spiritual streak a mile wide. Pisces, an expert on emotion, can crack through Capricorn’s shell and bring out the Goat’s softer side. When Capricorn finally opens up to Pisces, both will revel in the flood of emotion and sensuality that is revealed.
Pisces lives for the moment, going wherever the world leads. This can result in a chaotic life and the Fish often struggles with the day-to-day tasks that keep one’s life orderly and comfortable. One of the Pisces’s greatest weaknesses is that it often lacks the drive and discipline required to bring dreams and ideas to life. Capricorn’s practical mindset can help provide much-needed structure to the Fish’s world and the Goat can lend drive and determination to projects that need to be realized.
Stubborn and determined, Capricorn can be difficult to live with when it comes to planning and direction. The Goat seldom allows anything, even love, to distract from personal goals and direction. Easy-going Pisces avoids making decisions and is generally happy to go with the flow. In fact, the Fish looks upon Capricorn’s goal seeking as an adventure, thus taking the edge off what could potentially be an area for conflict.
Capricorn and Pisces both require a fair amount of space in a romantic relationship. Pisces tends to disappear into a personal dreamworld quite often. Capricorn, always working on some project or other, is able to give Pisces the necessary space to dream and create rather than resenting the Fish’s need to escape. Both the Goat and Fish are extremely loyal, so jealousy isn’t usually a problem in their relationship, but trust can be an issue with emotional Pisces.
While a Capricorn and Pisces pairing can be paradise on Earth, there are certainly hazards to be avoided. The combination of determined Capricorn and easygoing Pisces can result in an unequal relationship. Pisces can be very lackadaisical about any repetitive task such as daily chores and paying bills, while Capricorn is very rigid about how and when these things must be done. This often results in the Goat gradually taking control of all the details of the relationship allowing Pisces to become lazy and dependent.
A born leader, Capricorn always has a preference, and it can be very frustrating for the Goat to find that Pisces seldom makes a decision unless forced to, but rather allows life to take whatever course is easiest. Even if Pisces does express a preference or opinion, Capricorn may not listen as the Goat gets very focused on what it wants. If Pisces becomes too complacent, Capricorn can lose respect for its partner, a vital element for the Goat to maintain a relationship with anyone.
Because both Pisces and Capricorn are happy in their own company, there is a real possibility that they will grow apart. Capricorn can see the Fish’s dream world as ineffectual and a waste of time that could be put to constructive use. If Pisces spends too much time away, the practical Goat will find productive uses for that time and will retreat back into its emotional shell.
As unlikely as it seems, a successful relationship between Capricorn and Pisces gives credence to the old adage that opposites attract. With their opposing strengths and weaknesses, this particular Earth and Water combination results in a near-perfect combination.
Capricorn can provide the relationship with structure and energy Pisces needs to keep from aimless drifting. Pisces brings a wealth of emotion and romance so necessary to the Goat. If Capricorn can refrain from taking over and Pisces uses the structure provided by the relationship to foster dreams, this can definitely be a match made in heaven!
