Taurus and Capricorn are a compatible love match. Both are earthy and sensual but cautious when it comes to love, so a romantic relationship will take time, but these two can bring out the best in each other and gradually, as caution gives way, love can enter the picture, and the heavenly aspects of their earthy relationship will shine through.

Taurus and Capricorn Love Compatibility

The Taurus and Capricorn are both Earth sign which means they have shared interests, values, and goals in life.

What Makes Taurus and Capricorn Compatible

Below are some things these two earthy individuals have in common:

  • Stable, loyal, and trustworthy natures
  • A sense of responsibility
  • Ambition
  • Solid work ethic
  • A need for financial security
  • An interest in what's real rather than imagined

Alike but Different

Taurus is the Fixed Earth sign. Capricorn is the Cardinal Earth sign. This means they act differently and have different motivations.

  • A Capricorn is a dynamic and proactive risk taker; they are future-oriented, initiate change, move forward, make things happen, and are driven to be successful in the physical world.
  • A Taurus takes no risks, stubbornly hangs on, and resists change. Their focus is on having the things that will give them pleasure and make them feel comfortable in the present.

Stated more simply, Capricorn is about earthly accomplishment, and Taurus is about earthly pleasures.

The Attraction

A Taurus and Capricorn have chemistry, a mutual understanding and are attracted to each other. However, their earthy nature also makes both cautious of moving too fast. It's likely they will first be friends, however, once they see how well they fit each other's needs, they're bound to take the friendship further.

Why They Fall in Love

Although Taurus and Capricorn are both Earth signs, each sign is ruled by very different planets. Taurus is governed by Venus, the planet of love, and the Moon, the planet of emotions. Taurus is the most affectionate and emotional of the three Earth Signs. Capricorn, ruled by the Saturn, the taskmaster, is the most stoic and reserved Earth sign.

  • Taurus falls in love with Capricorn's gravitas, maturity, strength, and protective nature.
  • Capricorn falls in love with Taurus' playful, youthful, affectionate and pampering nature.

Each falls in love with what they lack, and together they make a well-rounded couple.

Taurus and Capricorn Together

Taurus or Capricorn are marriage minded and in search of a lifetime partner, but not quick to give their heart away or to get involved in a risky love affair.

Romance

A Taurus and Capricorn are both shy and reserved especially in the initial phases of dating. So, a romance will be slow moving. However, they'll spend this time enjoying one another, being physically affectionate, and having casual conversations. No parties or clubbing for this couple, instead there will be intimate dinners at fine restaurants, strolls through parks, museums, or on mountain trails, just enjoying the sense of familiarity they feel when they're together.

As Lovers

The magic truly begins when they become lovers. As lovers, they'll have an active sex life that's exceptionally romantic and sensual. Capricorn is lusty, Taurus has a high libido, and both are into pleasuring the physical body. Their love bond thrives and grows due to their ability to be so joyfully and physically intimate with one another.

Marriage Potential

A Taurus and Capricorn relationship has marriage potential. Each wants a traditional, family-oriented life. As a married couple they are blessed with success, loyal to one another, and can quickly become the pillars of their community.

Money Smarts

Agreeing on money in a marriage is essential, especially so when there's a joint checking account, mutual bills, and shared responsibility. While Taurus enjoys luxury and material comforts slightly more than the more fiscally disciplined Capricorn, they both have money smarts, excellent earning potential, and are far from wasteful with their funds.

As Parents

Capricorns are known for being great parents and are drawn toward raising children. Taurus wants to have a strong, functioning family. Parenting together they are consistent, provide rules and boundaries, as well as affection. They provide their kids with a firm foundation and strive to make sure they get a good start in life.

Potential Problems

As a couple, they are conservative, traditional, somewhat staid and perhaps overly concerned with status. Spontaneity can become scarce and Capricorns enterprising nature may at times threaten Taurus' stability, but other than that the relatively calm relationship they have is perfect for each.

Astrology and Love

Who and why you fall in love with a specific person is a mystery that even a professional astrologer can't solve. What an astrologer can do is clue you in as to how compatible you might be with the person you love and where difficulties might be encountered. They do this by comparing not just the Sun signs, but also the rising signs, the Moon signs and the signs of rest of the planets. Astrological compatibility is just as complicated as love itself.
