There are numerous types of relationships to explore when considering compatibility between two signs. We grow up in a parent/child dynamic. Outside our family, we form friendships with other children and eventually other adults. We look for and find love. And, we go to work and have careers, interacting with employers and co-workers.
Each sign-to-sign interaction guides our behavior in every relationship. Read through this section to find out how each of the above dynamics works astrologically so you can experience the optimal way to communicate and get along with your sign and all the other signs.
The Aries-and-Capricorn interaction is very challenging. As the “I am” sign of the Zodiac, Aries is independent, face-paced, and likes to take risks. Capricorn is the “I produce” sign of the Zodiac and is responsible, goal-driven, and practical. A long-term relationship (outside parent/child) can only happen if other factors in the chart support staying together.
Aries Parent/Capricorn Child
The Aries parent and Capricorn child will be challenging, because of a battle of wills between these two cardinal signs. Capricorn, as a type, is serious and demanding, which will likely tax the Aries parent. Thus, the Capricorn child may find this parent “not up to snuff” in terms of the level of parenting responsibility that he or she should perform versus what they do perform. The Aries parent “feels the judgment” of their child if they are not on top of parenting responsibilities, leaving the child to be the adult in the relationship.
Capricorn Parent/Aries Child
The Capricorn parent and Aries child will be a challenging relationship. Capricorn holds itself and everyone else to a high standard of responsibility and expectations, which can certainly put it at odds with an Aries child, who likes to do things his or her own way. Unless they can find some mutual accord around an activity or goal, there is likely to be turmoil until the child is out on his or her own.
Aries Friend/Capricorn Friend
Aries and Capricorn friends probably need to spend limited time together; these signs challenge each other. They would probably do well engaging in athletic games either against each other or on the same team. If they go against each other, it will be the best out of 11! If they play on the same team, they will both want to crush the opponent. They should just never give or seek advice from each other.
Aries Lover/Capricorn Lover
This romance, love, sex combination can be one of the most intense and vigorous any of the sign combinations. Aries is a “let’s rip off our clothes and have sex here in the bathroom” and Capricorn is “let’s see if you can keep up”. There is a competitive approach that might work well for sex, but not necessarily for romance and love. Considering the Ram has horns, and the Goat has horns, head butting will be pretty common, leading to a lot of headaches.
Aries Employer/Capricorn Employee
The Aries employer and the Capricorn employee can work in the short term until the Capricorn moves on to something bigger and better or takes over the company. The Capricorn will always be looking to be in charge. This combination can work out longer if the Aries really is hands-off and lets the Capricorn run things in his or her area as he or she sees fit. But, if there is a clash, a firing scenario can arise and erupt rather quickly.
Capricorn Employer/Aries Employee
If the employer is a Capricorn and the employee is Aries, this combination is problematic. Capricorn likes to give orders and Aries does not like to obey orders. If the two of them can stay out of contact between work requested and work delivered, this combination can persist. It is in their nature to challenge one another, which is definitely a problem when the power dynamic favors one over the other.
Aries Co-worker/Capricorn Co-worker
This combination works much better than the employer/employee dynamic. An employer can get miles and miles of work out of these two, especially if some kind of competition takes place, or a reward is up for grabs based on performance. They can be unbeatable if paired together in the competition against others in the company or in the field of work.
