Libra is very social and prefers a life style that involves lots of interaction with others. For example, a job that does not involve communication with others is very distasteful to Libra. Capricorn is more concerned with career, stature, and practical affairs than Libra, and many times Libra wishes that Capricorn would lighten up, take life less seriously, and simply be more fun to be with. Capricorn seems a little old-fashioned at times too, which is frequently not agreeable with Libra. You can help complement each other also, with Capricorn contributing more to establishing a secure, well-founded plan for your lives and the future of your children (if you are married and have children), while Libra takes the time to maintain social contacts and keep life in balance, making sure that pressures of work and other responsibilities do not become overwhelming. Pleasure and aesthetics are important to Libra, and less so to Capricorn. Also, Capricorn tends to be autocratic and Libra is more democratic or egalitarian.
Libra is a warm, affectionate person who needs people, especially a very close, loving partner to share life with. Conversation, companionship, togetherness, and being half of a tight couple are very important to Libra. Capricorn is often more self-sufficient emotionally, or is afraid of neediness, dependency and emotional vulnerability. Libra finds security in personal relationships, while Capricorn finds it in work, accomplishment, and material success. Capricorn in fact, takes life seriously and tends to work more than necessary, while Libra is more balanced and wants to spend time socialising or relaxing more than Capricorn does.
Capricorn must be very careful not to harshly criticise or judge Libra. There is a strong tendency for Libra to feel blocked, frustrated, and discouraged by Capricorn. Typically, Capricorn will feel surprised by Libra's feelings of frustration and anger, and feel that Libra is just being overly sensitive to criticism. There is an element of truth to both viewpoints: Capricorn tends to be too critical of Libra and Libra tends to be too sensitive to the criticism; the combination can be disastrous! Libra may try to ignore the problem, but ignoring the problem will not cause the problem to disappear. This is a relationship that can help both of you mature a great deal; you are able to build a secure, stable life together and face many challenges and responsibilities together that you have been trying to avoid. However, the tendency to become overly concerned with your responsibilities and to be too conservative, cautious, and restrictive towards each other must not get out of hand, or you will both feel severely confined and restricted by being together.
There is a poetic, fanciful quality to your conversations. Capricorn brings out the poet and dreamer in Libra. Communications on practical matters, however, may suffer and you both need to be wary of exaggerating or hiding, or deceiving each other. When with Capricorn, Libra is often confused, less clear and less precise than usual.
Irritations over relatively minor incidents and situations, combined with a tendency to have differing tastes, preferences, and interests may make an intimate, long-lasting relationship difficult. You do care a great deal for each other, though, and both of you feel exceedingly bad after a quarrel. If you can be tolerant of each other's differing attitudes, interests, and lifestyles, the negative tendencies of this astrological influence will be minimised.
Your relationship may or may not be long lasting, but it will always have a flavour of unpredictability, spontaneity, and surprise. Periodic unexpected events and changes create an unsettled feeling between you, as if you can never quite relax and settle down into a comfortable, established pattern. While you will never be bored with one another, neither will you ever feel quite certain or peacefully secure. However, if your temperaments enable you to be highly flexible and adventurous and willing to take risks, you may be able to ride through the ups and downs.
You are destined to act as "awakeners" for one another. One of you may open the other to something totally new and different, even shocking, which revolutionises the way you view the world and your place in it - something you may once have considered weird or too "far out". Always there will be the element of experimentation, of following the unexpected twist in the road. Being with one another encourages you both to be more free, unconventional, and impulsive than you might be otherwise.
You love each other very deeply and the attraction between you is very strong, but your relationship is also prone to emotional ups and downs. It is not unusual for the quality of feelings that you have for each other to be quite different and this can lead to misunderstandings. For example, Libra may be in a romantic mood at a given time while Capricorn is feeling friendly, but not romantic. The roles sometimes reverse, and you find that your feelings frequently just won't synchronise. You also easily hurt each other's feelings, not realising how much the other person loves and cherishes you. By being flexible and adaptable, and really trying to sympathise with each other, you can avoid these problems most of the time.
Sexual rhythm can be very much out of tune in this relationship. One partner may even find difficulty reaching a climax or having a hearty orgasm. Long hours of foreplay or masturbation may be necessary to assist the overall sexual expression.
Your intellectual rapport is very good. You share lots of ideas and interests in community affairs, political or social issues, and various clubs and organisations.
