Capricorn Friendship Compatibility: The Organizer
Learn how Capricorns can make the best of friends with each sign
By Tarot.com Staff
Capricorns make great friends! You are loyal, funny, and dependable, and while Goats may not be the best communicators, your actions speak louder than words. You're the best at planning fun nights for your small (but super close) group of friends thanks to how practical and organized you are. While you can be stubborn and pessimistic, you are always there for your besties.
JUMP TO A SIGN:
Capricorn and Aries
Having an Aries for a friend is challenging for you, but you’re always up for a challenge, Capricorn. The problem is that you’re complete opposites in many ways. You’re cool as a cucumber, while the Ram is a perpetual hothead. You like to savor life, while Aries prefers to zip through it. You’re skeptical of new ideas, whereas your friend is the consummate pioneer. Do you have anything at all in common? Well, yes. You’re both extremely ambitious, and you can form a lasting bond together by supporting each other’s lofty goals. As far as your differences are concerned, they can actually work to your mutual advantage. For instance, you can teach the Ram how to slow down and smell the flowers, while Aries can show you how to be more impulsive.
Capricorn and Taurus
Your friendship with Taurus is more precious than gold. Rarely will you find a friend as loyal, loving, and humorous as the Bull. Happily, your pal admires you in equal measure, praising your dependability, sophistication, and drive. It’s comforting to know that you’re not the only one who wants to build a fortune and retire early. In fact, one of your favorite pastimes with Taurus is talking about what each of you will do when you hit easy street. Of course, you think the Bull could get there a little quicker if they’d just apply themselves, while Taurus believes that you’d enjoy the road to wealth more if you’d only loosen up. Still, these minor irritations will rarely interfere with your otherwise fulfilling relationship.
Capricorn and Gemini
It’s hard to know where your Gemini pal is coming from, but that won’t stop you from trying. You love to learn what makes people tick. The thing about Gemini, however, is that the answer always changes. One minute this sign is passionately interested in modern art and the next they’re taking a class in ancient Greece. When you ask what happened to the Jackson Pollack painting that used to hang on their wall, Gemini will shrug and say, "I gave it to the garbage man last week. He said that he thought it was cool." Such rash behavior can make you seethe with rage. For what it’s worth, Gemini struggles with your reluctance to try anything new. If you can cope with the Twins’ unpredictability, they’ll put up with your routines.
Capricorn and Cancer
Cancer is your astrological opposite, but that doesn’t mean you can’t be friends. Actually, you may feel a close kinship with this sign as their care and consideration could warm your heart. Meanwhile, the Crab recognizes some of his or her own executive ability in you, hailing you as a kindred spirit. Sure, Cancer tends to burst into tears during the first few seconds of a Hallmark commercial, but who isn’t without their own shortcomings? For instance, your businesslike approach to parties is enough to provoke pinches from Cancer’s claws. For the most part, however, you balance each other nicely.
Capricorn and Leo
You’ll always turn heads with Leo by your side, and this can be a good thing or a bad thing, depending on the situation. It’s easier to meet people with the Lion, a gregarious friend who has no trouble breaking the ice. However, Leo’s sunny personality can often eclipse your quiet dignity. If you’re going to be friends with this sign, you’ve got to choose when to assert yourself. The fact is, you can be just as impressive as your friend, provided you don’t try to compete in the same contests. For instance, you’re more apt to make a hit with folks who appreciate a dry sense of humor, while Leo scores with folks who enjoy slapstick. You resonate with people who are drawn to the smooth sophistication of Cary Grant, while Leo wins favor with folks who prefer the animal magnetism of Robert De Niro.
Capricorn and Virgo
Here’s a friendship worth writing home about. Although you and Virgo are both cautious by nature, you may take an instant liking to one another. You love this sign’s snowy white shirt, while they admire your well-cut business suit. After you talk a bit, you realize you both have an affinity for gardening, although the Virgin prefers growing vegetables while you prefer cultivating prize-winning roses. Still, you like the modest way Virgo offers to make you a homegrown salad, and the Virgin appreciates how you savor every bite of this carefully concocted lunch. Will there be any moments of tension in this friendship? Yes, like when Virgo chews your ear off about their fears and phobias. Before you tell your friend to shut up, consider how they feel when you refuse to go to their favorite restaurant week after week. If you can overlook each other’s flaws, you’ll be pals for life.
Capricorn and Libra
This is one of those friendships that could work, provided you’re willing to look past each other’s differences. The fact is, you and Libra are very different people. You like to deal with facts, while Libra prefers playing with concepts. You’re as steady as a rock, while Libra is as changeable as a breeze. You’re realistic, whereas your pal is idealistic. Libra’s friend inability to make a decision could grind your gears, while Libra simply doesn’t understand why you’re so serious. Do you have anything in common? Yes, a talent for leadership. But while Libra’s gift is in executing ideas, yours is in managing materials. If you combine your talents, you can see impressive results. Another possibility is forming a food co-op or lending library of some kind. Your friendship works when you’re building something valuable together.
Capricorn and Scorpio
This friendship is as comfortable as an old shoe. That’s because Scorpio understands your cautious outlook on life. Similarly, you sympathize with this pal’s tendency to keep their cards close to their vest. And although you may not talk very much, you can share comfortable silences, which is tremendously rewarding. Sure, you’re a bit uncomfortable with this sign’s long-standing grudges, while your Scorpio bristles at your bossy behavior. Still, you’re very congenial for the most part. Both of you share a similar sense of humor and may enjoy watching dark comedies together.
Capricorn and Sagittarius
Sagittarius possesses many traits you admire: honesty, humor, and intelligence. And although you may not realize this, the Archer secretly respects your diligence, determination, and drive. That’s probably why you got drawn into each other’s orbit. If you’re looking for a frank assessment of a problem, call up the Archer. You’ll be happy to return the favor when Sagittarius asks for help with filing their taxes. Yes, it drives you crazy when Sagittarius yaks on their cell phone in the middle of a five-star restaurant. Consider how the Archer feels, though, when he or she does something like fall down the stairs and your first instinct is to ask about their health insurance coverage.
Capricorn and Capricorn
It’s so nice to have a fellow Capricorn in your corner. You know that this friend will never ditch you at a party or forget to water your plants while you’re away. Similarly, your pal appreciates having someone who laughs at their twisted jokes. If you ever need business advice, look no further than a fellow Goat, someone who will probably affirm your well-thought-out plans. Discussing your personal life may be another matter altogether, as neither one of you feels comfortable with revealing deep, dark secrets. However, if there does come a time when you need to talk about something painful, you can be sure that your Capricorn friend will not only listen attentively, but keep your secret safe.
Capricorn and Aquarius
Free-wheeling Aquarius isn’t the most obvious companion for you, but maybe that’s why you enjoy this friendship. The Water-bearer’s unpredictable behavior is something of a catharsis for you. It’s hard to follow the letter of the law all the time. Aquarius reminds you how important it is to toss out the rule book and follow the beat of your own drum, even if just for an hour or two. Conversely, you show your friend the value of time-honored traditions and why it’s so important to respect customs that have been handed down for generations. Yes, you’ll tire of the Aquarius’ rebel without a cause routine, while Aquarius will accuse you of being a fuddy-duddy.
Capricorn and Pisces
Pisces sees you as a shelter from the storm, and you’re happy to give them sanctuary. That’s because you know you can depend on the Fish to dry your tears when you need help. Although you don’t cry in front of very many people, you’re able to break down in front of this friend. This sign is famous for their kindness and compassion. Yes, Pisces’ inability to get anywhere on time drives you crazy. However, you have to admit that the Fish puts up with you being a tad bit pushy, especially when it comes to picking movies and restaurants. For the most part, however, you guys get along famously.
