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 Taurus-and-Capricorn interaction is very productive. As the “I establish” sign of the Zodiac, Taurus prefers well-worn paths, plodding along, and playing it safe. 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, positive, and very likely. Earth signs, among the elements, match best with each other.
Taurus Parent/Capricorn Child
The Taurus parent and Capricorn child will work well, but with a certain type of challenge, that makes this earth combination a little more stressful than Taurus/Virgo. Thus, the Capricorn child may want to get ahead while the Taurus parent sticks to traditions, which may inhibit some of the child’s ability to achieve at their own pace, which will be more aggressive than their peers. The Taurus parent will provide the foundation his or her children need to succeed, they just may have to realize that their Capricorn child is going to push to overachieve.
Capricorn Parent/Taurus Child
The Capricorn parent and Taurus child will work well, but with a certain type of challenge. Capricorn holds itself and everyone else to a high standard of responsibility and expectations, which can certainly be fine with the Taurus child, who likes to do things with consistent determination. However, the Capricorn parent might get impatient with the Taurus child, who prefers to take a conservative approach to all endeavors without the same kind of ambition the parent will naturally have.
Taurus Friend/Capricorn Friend
Taurus and Capricorn friends do well together because their energies can prove complimentary. The Capricorn is always striving and will benefit from having a grounded friend like the Taurus individual. The Taurus friend will always ask Capricorn why a change is needed or why he or she must push harder or further. The Taurus can easily become stuck in a rut and resist change that is good for them, which is where the Capricorn friend comes in. The Capricorn will help the Taurus “level up” when he or she needs to move from an old behavior into a new and better one.
Taurus Lover/Capricorn Lover
This romance, love, sex combination can be one of the most intense and vigorous any of the sign combinations. Taurus is a “let’s share our bodies together” and Capricorn is “let’s see if you can keep up”. There is a results-oriented approach that might work well for the sex, but not necessarily romance and love. Considering the Ram has horns, and the Goat has horns, head butting can be pretty common, leading to a lot of headaches.
Taurus Employer/Capricorn Employee
The Taurus employer and the Capricorn employee can work well together so long as the Capricorn can be promoted and keep achieving new goals. These energies are both practical about business and want to see long-term success. The main conflict will be the speed and needed change to advance the business, which the Capricorn employee will push, perhaps against the wishes of the Taurus employer. But overall, this combination should be a win-win for both signs.
Capricorn Employer/Taurus Employee
If the employer is a Capricorn and the employee is Taurus, this combination is quite good. Capricorn likes to give orders and Taurus likes to work in an environment where they know the rules and have clear measurements for accomplishment and success. This setup is certainly one where the Capricorn employer can set the Taurus employee on a task and “leave them to it”. If there is a problem, it will occur if the Taurus skillset becomes obsolete and they have not done the necessary development to stay current. Then again, a good Capricorn boss will keep their employee’s skills current.
Taurus Co-worker/Capricorn Co-worker
This combination works well. It is another example of push/resistance that can make progress slower, but certainly steady and reliable. The Capricorn will be looking to get ahead, and the Taurus will be looking to maintain the status quo. If they work side-by-side, but not necessarily on the same project, friction will not arise. If the company has an important project and they want to blend aggression and caution, then this pairing will deliver. And ultimately, their earthy pragmatism will keep them from entering into any serious conflict, as you might get with the Aries/Taurus or Taurus/Sagittarius match.
