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 Libra-and-Capricorn interaction can be challenging because these two signs square one another. Libra is the “I relate” sign of the Zodiac, and is analytical, connecting, and fair. Capricorn is the “I produce” sign of the Zodiac and is responsible, goal-driven, and practical. A long-term relationship (outside parent/child) is possible, with regular bumpiness on the ride. Still, this square is not as dramatic or fraught with serious contention as you would find with Aries and Capricorn or Leo and Scorpio.
Libra Parent/Capricorn Child
The Libra parent and Capricorn child can be very good because Libra is one of the most capable signs for dealing with the unique qualities of all the other signs. The Libra parent is here to teach the Capricorn child how to relate and solve problems through negotiation. This guidance is very helpful to the Capricorn child, who has an intense desire to succeed and lead others through controlling behavior. A Libra parent can give a child the knowledge and skills to relate successfully, which is ideal for the Capricorn child, who can use greater awareness of others as a tool in his or her toolkit for achievement.
Capricorn Parent/Libra Child
The Capricorn parent and Libra child also has its benefits. The Capricorn parent will help the Libra child understand the importance of holding people accountable, setting goals, and being responsible. A Capricorn parent can be quite demanding, with high expectations, which a Libra child can meet if they want to win the favor of their parent, which they do. The child will enjoy trying to achieve what their Capricorn parent expects, which is for them to perform at a high level without fanfare or glory because achieving at a high level is what you are supposed to do.
Libra Friend/Capricorn Friend
Libra and Capricorn friendships are tolerable, but not necessarily enduring. They have very different styles when it comes to moving through the world. Libra likes to negotiate and include everyone with an eye towards fairness. Capricorn is all business and prefers to lead in ways that result in prosperity for all, capable of treating people as minions on their way to success. Throughout the friendship, Libra will feel Capricorn is too harsh and Capricorn will feel Libra is too forgiving. They can learn a lot from each other without trying to make things work in the long run. The way they frustrate each other will be more apparent in a romantic relationship where they choose to spend more time together than they probably should.
Libra Lover/Capricorn Lover
This romance, love, sex combination can be very physical and intellectual but also struggle constantly. All earth signs enjoy the pleasures of the body, taking care of their health, and long-term commitments that bring prosperity and safety through material success. Love is a healthy bank account, savings, a nice home, good food, and plenty of sex. Air signs consider communication, sharing, and equality to be important in their romances. As a result, they will regularly frustrate each other with their distinctly different approaches to life, but usually not to the degree that will end the relationship.
Libra Employer/Capricorn Employee
The Libra employer and the Capricorn employee can work well together so long as the Capricorn can be promoted and keep achieving new goals. Libra wants to see all his or her employees work in harmony and be productive, and Capricorn can be a team player if he can lead the team. The Capricorn, who is self-motivated, will find benefits from a boss who understands their need to keep achieving. So long as their pursuit of success meets the Libra boss expectations for good working relationships; all is well.
Capricorn Employer/Libra Employee
If the employer is a Capricorn and the employee is a Libra, this dynamic also works well. Capricorn needs employees that can be negotiators, relatable, and analytical, which Libra, in business, can do. This setup is certainly one that leverages the different types of leadership energy of the two cardinal signs (Capricorn and Libra). The first rules the area of the astrology chart that deals with career and the other rules the area of the chart that deals with partnerships, the 10th, and 7th houses respectively.
Libra Co-worker/Capricorn Co-worker
This combination requires almost no effort on the part of management; they will manage themselves just fine, either individually or as a team. If they do need to work together, they will make it work, learning to respect their different approaches to finding success. They can handle high-pressure situations or mundane, but necessary work. The Capricorn will focus on achievement by setting an example as the hardest worker, while the Libra will focus on working relationships and how they help everyone achieve success.
