Aries - Capricorn
These signs are both "Cardinal", which means they share an Action-Oriented approach to what they do. And Aries is Fire and Capricorn is Earth. Capricorn's actions, and these people are not only action-based, but being an earth sign --- they also have A PLAN -- feed Aries' energy and bursting ambitious ideation, while Aries can make the best of a "finished plan", since they are not the best at finishing.
These two in romance would be make quite an image. In a light-hearted way, you can see Aries talking up a storm about how dynamic they are, and Capricorn nodding as they check out Aries' resume. Romance is definitely not an afterthought, but it would only be a part of the package with these two. Aries would do their appealing thing, and Capricorn, knowing that even though they think sex is kind of a funny human thing, would see the absolute importance of it here. This is a good potential for compatibility, but the compatibility would not be that important, unless Capricorn saw a future in it. Let's not leave Aries' attraction out of it. Capricorn could have all of its lists and rules, but if Capricorn were not appealing and attractive to Aries, it would not matter. And that is why the Divine made Capricorn with its mystical animal (not really an actual goat, and not the Devil. It is a creature that can handle and adapt to different settings. Even though they are tough on others, they are an exceedingly successful sign). Capricorn, if they fell for Aries, would manifest its romantic prowess, as best it could. As I said, this creates an image that makes a story in itself.
Since Aries and Capricorn share "cardinality", there is a basic match up here. Fire and Earth work too, positively speaking, because these two could make a family and a corporation together. Earth makes into hard porcelain, what Aries conceives and concocts from fired clay. Regardless of how the genders work, if they were both serious, it could end up an institution. Capricorn would take things cautiously in the beginning, and since Aries seems to be always game, it could proceed apace, in ever increasing heat, as Capricorn checked off the progress points. Aries' intelligence and brightness would be analyzed and assessed by Capricorn. All Capricorn would have to do is keep up its' implicit part of the bargain -- which would be to stay almost as dynamic and compelling as Aries.
Aries and Capricorn could possibly have a high romance factor. The romance part would probably be the largest hurdle. If Capricorn could keep Aries' interest and they had a mutuality of passion, the way ahead could look very clear and unobstructed. Capricorn would have to keep its sometimes negative sense of humor in check and not get into a critical or sardonic mode. Aries should promise not to lose its temper. Romance "dampening" is a strong possibility with these two personalities, who often have strong egos, which they advertise on their front porch, day and night. They should both think about not irritating each other as a point of reverence, for the health of the relationship.
Aries and Capricorn might not come to blows, but they could get really snappy! Aries could try to head knock the Goat, and the Goat could jump up one rock and the Aries could bruise their face. Aries might retaliate too hard, if Capricon let slip one of its torpedoes. Then they could be "off to the races". Neither will be intimidated and both are too well armed for anybody's health. This match could be a notice from the heavens that both should check their quick mouth at the door. We are down here to get conflict in perspective. Often these two could learn to pull their punches, for the long term health of the relationship. Reconciliation and harmony should be pursued as strongly as their commercial and career interests.
Life in the end is repetitive and mundane, and so is Romance itself. This factor asks the question: "Can we be bored together over the long term?" Capricorn and Aries might take different points of view on the boredom question. Capricorn would enjoy basking in success and enjoying the nice things that it has purchased, to show off its' success. Aries would spend less time eating from the fine china and sunning on the deck. Capricorn might build their savings, while Aries might want to spend the savings on another vacation or Time Share. If both have moderated their tempers and kept up mutual respect, then they could work out the boredom issues; but both should realize that this part of the relationship could mean that "counterbalancing" was in order.
Keep Up The Interest Graph:
Capricorn would always be aware, if they truly appreciated and loved Aries, that "keeping up the interest" would be a career goal. If it makes it onto that list, then Capricorn will be OK. If not, then Capricorn's tendency toward smugness and self-satisfaction could trip it up. Aries would be as good as any at "keeping up the interest", unless it was subconsciously angry or resentful, and was not really aware of it. If Capricorn has truly lost its interest in Aries, it would probably express it in several ways. Aries constant vitality and automatic rotating focus, could destabilize things, so it would want to remember how fortunate it is.
Seven Year Itchiness:
There are some signs that by their nature are more stable in their love interests and family concerns as time goes on. Others are not. Both of these Cardinal signs are not going to be shy about taking action in love, if they have gone through six years of unhappiness. However, Capricorn is not going to mess up what they have invested in. Aries, however, might wander onto another hill just because, after 7 years, they are inquisitive. Capricorn would let all kinds of possibilities into its head, but that's because they are always pondering "career options". But because their whole life is a career, they would not be impulsive. Aries could be tempted, but because they are constantly tempted, they might see it for what it is -- a temptation to be resisted.
RATING: ASTROCOMPATIBILITY POSSIBILITY RATING: 85% Positive Long Term - 50% Short Term. The older the relationship gets, the better. Capricorn will be the reason it could last, and also the reason it might never mature. The older the Aries gets, the less its boundless energy would be destructive. The newer this relationship is, the more possibility that it might not work. Assuming Capricorn's virtues were seen by Aries as good "long term", and Capricorn saw all of Aries strengths, this could be a relationship with kids, and money and success.
