When Capricorn and Taurus enter a love relationship, they share great romantic chemistry. The Taurus-Capricorn pairing has the potential to turn into a balanced, peaceful, and happy long-term relationship.

Capricorn and Taurus Relationships

Whether their relationship is friendship, romantic partners, or strictly business, Capricorn and Taurus work well and can go far together. A Capricorn works hard to attain worldly success, recognition, and status. A Taurus works hard so when the workday is done they can enjoy the fruits of their labor. They are both earthy people but they inherently see the world from different perspectives. Capricorn is about earthly duties and Taurus is about earthly pleasures.

Advantages of a Capricorn Taurus Romantic Pairing

Capricorn and Taurus both have strong, practical natures. So, when it comes to choosing a romantic partner they both have expectations of what the person they're attracted to will bring to the table. This may not seem very romantic to others, but it's of utmost importance to both Capricorn and Taurus.

Mutual Admiration

Capricorn and Taurus will find a lot to admire in one another. They both seek financial security, have a strong desire for an enduring relationship, and share a traditional approach to love. For these two romantic love is not only about emotions and passion; it's also about shared material values and goals.

Lifetime Commitment

When it comes to love and commitment both Capricorn and Taurus move cautiously and slowly, Each knows what they are looking for, doesn't want to make a mistake and is willing to wait until the right person comes along.

Both are seeking a partner who:

  • Wants a lifetime commitment
  • Is ambitious and financially secure
  • Is strong, quiet, reserved, dependable, and loyal
  • Value home and family
  • Is passionate, romantic, and sentimental

Physical Intimacy

Both Capricorn and Taurus have high libidos and incredible stamina. As lovers, they'll have an active sex life that's extremely romantic, sensual, and passionate. However, neither is particularly vocal in professing their love for the other, but both are into pleasuring the physical body, so their love bond is created, thrives, and grows due to their ability to be so physically intimate with one another.

Marriage Partners

Traditional marriage is on the agenda when Capricorn and Taurus fall in love. Both are into a home, family, and kids, are ambitious, need financial security, and when they share their material wealth, they have reasons to stay together. Their children and beautiful home, as well as their abundant lifestyle, are constant reminders of how much richer their lives are when they're together.

Reserved and Private

While Taurus and Capricorn are not particularly shy, they can be private and reserved. Neither is into the social scene and they share a love of quieter activities. As a couple, they like nothing better or want nothing more than to spend a quiet evening together sharing an epicurean meal and a bottle of fine wine.

Disadvantages of a Relationship Between Capricorn and Taurus

Capricorn and Taurus will both work hard to maintain their lifestyle. However, when lifestyle becomes more important than the relationship, it's bound to cause problems. Perhaps the greatest disadvantage there is in a Capricorn/Taurus relationship is they can become more like business associates than lovers or mates.


The constant quest for money, status, and material things can take all the romance out of a Capricorn and Taurus relationship, and it can also become a source of disagreement. A Capricorn is thrifty while a Taurus desires luxurious "things." A Taurus wants a great deal of leisure time while a Capricorn is a workaholic. Each can constantly be asking the other: "When is enough really enough?"


The stubbornness quotient for both Capricorn and Taurus is legendary! To get a good understanding of this, think about each sign's astrological symbols; Taurus is a Bull, Capricorn is a Goat. From this alone, you can imagine all the times these two strong-willed individuals will butt heads! To stave off these conflicts, both need to remember to give in occasionally to their partner's demands.


In all relationships, the ability to communicate with the one you love is key to overcoming problems. The problem with Capricorn and Taurus is that both are quiet, introspective, hold things back, and often speak only when necessary. Which means each will have to make an effort to communicate to the other what they're thinking and feeling before emotions get out of hand.

A Quiet and Introspective Match

It's not likely that a Capricorn/Taurus couple will set the world on fire, but the peaceful, serene and relatively calm relationship they can have is perfect for each. As a couple, they are conservative, traditional, somewhat staid and perhaps overly concerned with status, but they're also highly likely to enjoy one another's company and to grow old together with plenty of mutual admiration and affection

Astrology and Compatibility

Keep in mind that just because the astrological signs of Capricorn and Taurus are compatible doesn't necessarily mean that it will work out that way in real life. People are more than their Sun sign. A professional astrologer takes into account so many other factors besides the sun sign. They also consider the rising sign, the Moon, Venus, Mercury, Mars and the rest of the planets of each individual to get a full picture. Still, it's safe to say a Capricorn and Taurus couple is off to a good start!
