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 Capricorn-and-Capricorn interaction is one of the better same sign combinations. Capricorn is the “I produce” sign of the Zodiac and is responsible, goal-driven, and practical. A long-term relationship (outside parent/child) is very possible, so long as they can avoid getting into competition with each other. After all, this sign leads; so, the old adage “too many chefs in the kitchen” can describe the contentious aspect of this relationship.
Capricorn Parent/Capricorn Child
The Capricorn parent and Capricorn child can do very well together, especially if the child and parent share the same level of ambition. The Capricorn parent wants to help his or her child become successful and productive. And, the Capricorn child needs to be challenged, with clear and measurable goals at each stage of development. Ideally, the parent and child would work together in such a way that the parent pushes the child with enough expectation to keep the child striving, but not to break or dishearten them.
Capricorn Friend/Capricorn Friend
Capricorn to Capricorn friends can have lifelong friendships if they do not cross paths in business. These are friends who can try to “one-up” each other with their knowledge or accomplishments. If they can keep it in the “competitive but friendly” zone, all will be well. However, if they cross into territory where they both want the same thing, the friendship can easily get bulldozed. Their story might go, “we met in middle school on the debate team; she would win some and I would win some, but as a team, we never lost.”
Capricorn Lover/Capricorn Lover
This romance, love, sex combination is one of the most intense and physical. Like the other earth signs, romance and sex are physical, like sporting events where each person is striving for the gold medal. Saturn is the ruler of this sign, so they take every aspect of love seriously and want to outperform in all areas, be it gift-giving or sexual prowess. This sign prefers high status, so relationships are part of the larger strategy of winning at life. Together, they will both share this philosophy, which can make them a power couple if the rest of the charts line up nicely.
Capricorn Employer/Capricorn Employee
The Capricorn employer and the Capricorn employee is not as smooth as the parent/child dynamic, mainly because two adults are involved, and one of them is on the way up and the other one may just be in the way. In this dynamic, it can be a case of “training your successor to replace you”. With that in mind, the relationship should probably be one of training the employee to take over in another division or go elsewhere to meet his or her long-term goals.
Capricorn Co-worker/Capricorn Co-worker
Capricorn co-workers can get along just fine if they are working in different divisions of the company; otherwise, the competition can get fierce and ruthless. Only a truly strong and deft manager would put them on the same team or have them working collaboratively, unless, of course, it is an executive training program. These individuals work best with other signs when it comes to co-working because they will naturally strive to outdo the others and help their co-workers perform at higher levels.
