When Libra and Capricorn come together, the success of the relationship depends on both partners' ability to agree on similar interests. The similarities aren't always easy to spot, however. Libra is extroverted and derives satisfaction from public interaction. Capricorn is more calculated, steering clear of distractions while moving steadily toward a set goal. Both Signs will certainly reach their destination, following two very different paths which can still certainly merge.
Both partners are self starters, so when they're on the same team, they need to have different and well-defined roles to ensure that they don't cross each other's boundaries. Libra is pondering and intellectual, and Capricorn sees the value of doing things the hard way if it leads to certain success. Once the partners understand each other's style, their methods help them to achieve together what they could not achieve alone.
Libra is ruled by the Planet Venus and Capricorn is ruled by the Planet Saturn. These Planets don't have much in common, so it's important for Libra and Capricorn to work through their differences. Saturn perseveres and keeps moving ahead through all kinds of difficulties. Venus takes the time to stop and admire beauty and share romance, perhaps even revealing a lazy streak in the process. If their energies are not channeled in positive ways, together these Planets may indicate antagonism or come to a crashing halt, or they may signify repressed emotion. Capricorn must be careful not to dampen Libra's spirit, and Libra must strive to maintain the balance with Capricorn.
Libra is an Air Sign, and Capricorn is an Earth Sign. Libra initiates projects from pure feeling and action, while Capricorn, also an initiator, is more practical. Capricorn seeks a pragmatic side to everything, while Libra simply seeks knowledge and new ideas for diversion, without having a set plan in mind. Although these partners may find it challenging to accept each other's varied styles, when they work together, they make an excellent team because of their complementary approaches.
Libra and Capricorn are both Cardinal Signs. Both partners are initiators, but they have such widely varying work ethics that they work better when they each have a particular, well-defined role. On the surface, Libra may be the civic avenger, refuting injustice and evading barriers (always in a charming manner), but Capricorn will also be indirectly in charge because they are always working steadily toward their goals. Libra will be the first to back down to avoid a conflict. It's important for both partners to understand that compromise is they key to their success.
The best aspect of the Libra-Capricorn relationship is that they each bring their own qualities to the relationship. Once they allow each other to be themselves -- rather than getting in each other's way -- they can blend well to make a whole. Theirs is a challenging relationship, but they can learn from each other if they maintain the effort.
