Capricorn and Sagittarius are different but not opposites and this makes a relationship very difficult. They have fundamental dissimilarities in values that are very difficult to reconcile and will cause a fair amount of friction. They may be able to bridge their differences intellectually, but this will never be an easy relationship.
Adventurous and Independent, Sagittarius is the sign most likely to be a world traveler. The Archer loves to discover new places and sample all the pleasures the novelty provides. This includes multiple lovers - a one-night stand is right up the Archer’s alley. Rather cold and philosophical, Sagittarius is unlikely to form deep emotional attachments. Despite this, the Archer is so much fun, in and out of bed, that it never seems to lack for partners.
Ever the optimist, Sagittarius is always sure that an amazing adventure awaits just around the corner. The daring Archer lives for the moment and doesn’t give the future much serious thought. This results in Sagittarius being erratic and unreliable as the Archer is swayed by whatever is taking place at the moment with little consideration to the consequences of its actions. Sagittarius can be quite naïve and, like a child, never believes tragedy can touch it.
Disciplined and ambitious, Capricorn climbs the ladder of success as nimbly as the Goat that symbolizes it. This practical workaholic can be relentless in the pursuit of its goals and will never give up until they are reached. Logic and intelligence rule the Goat and feelings are carefully controlled until Capricorn decides it is appropriate to release them.
The Goat has exacting expectations when it comes to the integrity of the people in its life. Very loyal and protective, Capricorn has no tolerance for disloyalty or dishonesty. This insistence on uprightness is a direct result of the total commitment Capricorn makes to anyone it allows into its very private world. The Goat will use its relentless logic and exquisite memory to uncover any prevarication if its suspicions are aroused.
While this is a dangerous attachment, Capricorn and Sagittarius can be attracted to one another’s strong personality and quick mind. The Goat and Archer may form a relationship over intellectual pursuits. They are both well read and enjoy long discussions on philosophical or theoretical subjects. Capricorn yearns for an intellect that can match its own and Sagittarius admires the Goat’s relentless logic.
The Archer is rather cold emotionally and believes that the Goat shares this trait since Capricorn’s emotional control is nearly absolute. Despite its love of adventure and rebellious nature, Sagittarius shies away from drama, preferring physical excitement to emotional. Both signs enjoy the lack of emotional excess that characterizes the relationship.
Capricorn is attracted to the Archer’s adventurous nature. Ever cautious, the Goat is always in danger of ending up in a rut. Spending time with Sagittarius can help Capricorn break out of its rigid routine and try new things. Capricorn’s practicality can help the Archer bring some order to its chaotic lifestyle.
The biggest obstacle in a Capricorn – Sagittarius match is the difference in their values. Capricorn is a stickler for truth and integrity. If the Goat says it will do something, that thing will get done and Capricorn expects the same reliability in others. Sagittarius considers this attitude stifling and uptight. The Archer’s greatest enjoyment is to be free to pursue whatever pleasure the day brings, regardless of what was said yesterday. Sagittarius is not especially loyal and enjoys the adventure of having many sexual partners. This simply doesn’t work for dedicated Capricorn who will not tolerate infidelity.
Capricorn could be called a pessimist in its realistic outlook on the world. This comes from the Goat’s habit of looking at every possibility, positive or negative, before it makes a decision. Once ascertained, Capricorn makes every effort to mitigate the potential negative and strengthen the positive. The optimistic Archer finds this process oppressive. Sagittarius is all about the journey and if one takes away the unexpected then the adventure fades away.
Even though Capricorn seems cold, the Goat’s emotions run deep. Sagittarius is often initially attracted to cool Capricorn since it doesn’t realize that the Goat isn’t cold but conceals its feelings. If the couple should get to the point that Capricorn begins to open up to the Archer, shallower Sagittarius will quickly discover a frightening depth of emotion it has no idea what to do with.
Sagittarius lives for the day and has no real long-term plans at all. The Archer has little interest in pursuing a career, instead of working to finance the next adventure. Capricorn’s focus on career success and material accomplishment seem shallow and materialistic to the Archer. Capricorn finds the unworldly Archer a poor partner in helping the Goat achieve its goals.
Because both Capricorn and Sagittarius have strong personalities, neither is likely to give way easily when there are disagreements. Since both the Goat and the Archer avoid drama, they probably won’t have knock-down drag-out fights, instead these two will spend a lot of time bickering. Even their fighting styles are different. Capricorn will want to discuss everything until it is logically resolved while Sagittarius will usually run away from the fight, leaving the Goat frustrated and brooding about the unresolved issues.
While they might possibly work as friends, Capricorn and Sagittarius are just too different to make a successful long-term couple. With their fundamental values at odds and their personalities clashing, this pairing is a recipe for heartache – at least on Capricorn’s side. The Archer just can’t provide the loyalty and deep connection the Goat needs, while Capricorn’s disciplined life and pessimistic outlook aggravate the adventurous Sagittarius. Neither of these independent signs Is capable of changing their basic traits, no matter how much they might wish to. Still, there is some common ground in intellectual pursuits, and each may provide the other with a needed contrast for growth.
