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 Sagittarius-and-Capricorn interaction can be challenging since both want to be in roles of authority. Sagittarius is the “I expand” sign of the Zodiac, and loves to explore, share, and adventure. Capricorn is the “I produce” sign of the Zodiac and is responsible, goal-driven, and practical. A long-term relationship (outside parent/child) is improbable unless other factors in the charts help. In essence, this match faces the problem of “too many chefs in the kitchen”.
Sagittarius Parent/Capricorn Child
The Sagittarius parent and Capricorn child can work somewhat better than the other way around. The Sagittarius parent is here to teach the Capricorn child how to explore the world and how a strong belief can guide you to success. This guidance is helpful to the Capricorn child, who has an intense desire to succeed and grow up fast. A Sagittarius parent can give a child the experiences to succeed and deal with the wider world, which is ideal for the Capricorn child, who wants every advantage possible to be the best among his or her peers.
Capricorn Parent/Sagittarius Child
The Capricorn parent and Sagittarius child can be very challenging because the wildfire energy that is present in the Sagittarius child is not that welcome in a controlling Capricorn household. The Capricorn parent will help the Sagittarius 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 Sagittarius child may or may not want to meet. The child will be comfortable exploring more risk than is acceptable to the Capricorn parent, which can put them at odds often.
Sagittarius Friend/Capricorn Friend
Sagittarius and Capricorn friendships are possible and more comfortable than any of the “required” relationships, like parent/child or employer/employee. Sagittarius likes to explore and learn through experience. Capricorn is all business and prefers to lead in ways that result in prosperity for all. In truth, they can both succeed at high levels individually, and their friendship could easily result from being at the pinnacle of their respective careers and having a reason to interact. It could also be a case of grand ideas (Sagittarius) combining with financial means (Capricorn) to make a friendship of “conquering the world”.
Sagittarius Lover/Capricorn Lover
This romance, love, sex combination can be very physical and most enjoyable. 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. Sagittarius loves a romantic adventure, which can prove to be too extravagant for Capricorn (unless that Capricorn is highly successful). Love, for a Capricorn, is a healthy bank account, savings, a nice home, good food, and plenty of sex. Love, for a Sagittarius, is shared beliefs, exploration of the world, and joyful indulgence in life. These signs tend to want supportive partners, which can lead to the challenge of who leads when dancing.
Sagittarius Employer/Capricorn Employee
The Sagittarius employer and the Capricorn employee can work well together so long as the Capricorn can be promoted and keep achieving new goals. Sagittarius wants to see all his or her employees work to grow and expand their skills, and Capricorn can be a team player if he or she 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 Sagittarius boss’s expectations for expansion and success; all is well.
Capricorn Employer/Sagittarius Employee
If the employer is a Capricorn and the employee is Sagittarius, this dynamic can work. Capricorn needs employees that can be productive and success-oriented, which Sagittarius, in business, can do. This setup is certainly one that leverages the leadership energy of the cardinal sign (Capricorn) and the adaptable energy of the mutable sign (Sagittarius). Still, of the mutable signs, Sagittarius is the most intent on leading or being revered as an expert, so they will want to work for a boss who helps them perform the outreach duties of the business, which Capricorn can promote.
Sagittarius Co-worker/Capricorn Co-worker
This combination is not an easy one because they often do not consider anyone else their equals, so putting them together can create a lot of stress for everyone around them while they compete with each other. Should they need to work together, they will likely excel past any other combination of co-workers if they are managed properly. However, letting them do their own work within the company, and interacting in limited ways, is probably for the best.
