Oh, Capricorn and Taurus, you’ve got so much going for you! You’re both earth signs that use horned animals as symbols (the ram and the goat), you both realize how necessary material goods are to being happy and comfortable (face it, even the basic roof, food, and bed are all material items — you can’t live totally on air, despite what breatharianism says), and you both are willing to work hard to realize your goals. You’ve got a few bumps to navigate, but get past those, and you’re golden.
The Capricorn Woman
Independent, forthright, stable, persistent, cautious — girl, you know how to get what you want through hard work and good management. You know how to handle money, and it wouldn’t be surprising if you had a couple of side hustles bringing in more money. You want a stable life, and even if you have to go through a lot of change, you’re going to do your best to make your new situation a good one.
The Taurus Man
Solid, stable, and stubborn — that’s you, Taurus. You are willing to work long hours to meet your goals, you want your rewards, and lordy do you want your creature comforts. You’re likely to be the one who glamps instead of camps, right? You’re straightforward and want people to tell it like it is, and Capricorn is one of the best signs for that.

Well, hello there, earth signs! Taurus and Capricorn are both earthy, focused on making the material side of life worth having. None of that fire-signs-extinguish-water-signs nonsense for you; earth and earth combine to produce fertile soil. True, things can get a bit muddy, and there will be more on that mud in a minute, but you could also look at your dual earth influences as the astrological equivalent of amended garden soil — the best potential combination to make your lives together highly productive. Taurus men and Capricorn women are, ultimately, quite compatible with each other.
You Old Sticks in the Mud, or Maybe Not
Look online and you’ll find a lot of advice telling Taurus and Capricorn to remember to live in the moment, that you two are at risk of completely forgetting to enjoy today because you’re so caught up in saving for the future, or that your daily lives can be boring and repetitive. And yes, there is a risk that one or both of these scenarios could happen, as it could with any partnership where both people involved are really working toward a goal. For Taurus and Capricorn, the abundance of earth can leady to muddy ruts if you let it.
But the advice is also wrong on a couple of counts. One is that the Taurus man really does like to live well. Not necessarily gluttonous-well, or luxurious-well, but definitely comfortable-well. And while Taurus certainly has the capability to make do with spartan surroundings, chances are Taurus is going to want his current home, office regular lunch spot, and more to be decently supplied.
The other is that you two get to choose the type of life you want. If you’re a married couple who look at your little house and your daily and weekly routines as comforting and a source of happiness, go for it! You don’t have to change what is making you happy.
There’s a trend in many circles to diss “being content” as giving up or being scared to change and grow. You know what? You don’t have to listen to those people. If you do not feel like you are dying inside, if you feel overall happy about your choices, that is what counts. There are people who dream about reaching a lofty personal goal or going off on an adventure — and then there are people who dream of having a life that is quiet and peaceful. You’re the ones who have to live your lives, not the people telling you that “contentment” is equal to fear.
Taurus and Capricorn’s clash factor really stems from how far the two of you can go on the minimalist-hedonist scale. Get a Taurus man who really wants that rich-and-famous lifestyle together with a Capricorn woman who is willing to sacrifice now for early retirement, and you could have some big money fights on your hands. But, get a Taurus who wants a good home and delicious meals together with a Capricorn who wants a stable life with a good savings rate and eventual retirement, and you could have a strong partnership.
You can also both be very stubborn. If you have similar goals, or if your goals are different but don’t affect the other person in the pairing, no problem. Get different, clashing goals into the mix, though (e.g. retiring to live on a cruise ship full-time versus retiring in your own home), and you could see some unwelcome fireworks. And Taurus, sorry, but you’re not always right even though you often think you are, so listen to what Capricorn has to say.
Business, Friends, and Long-Term Love
Ok, you want to talk about fantastic business partners? Take a look at you two. You’ve got two material minds who want stable lives and good pay. You’re going to work to make success happen. The only issues are that you need to change occasionally to keep the business fresh for customers, so pay attention to trends that seem to be sticking, and you have to both be on the same page about money. You can’t have Taurus overspending on business trips while Capricorn attempts to staunch the flow of money out of the budget. You also can’t have Capricorn penny-pinching to the point where no one can get things done.
Friends? You’re fine. Seriously, friendships are flexible. Chances are you’ll both know of really good places to eat and you may both want to catch movies at the state-of-the-art theaters that have reclining armchairs and in-movie meals. And if you two have a boring day once in a while, you’ll be just fine with it.
In love, this can be a nice, stable partnership or marriage. A cozy home, good food, long-term savings… hey, as long as both of you avoid the financial pitfalls that the business pair have to address, this could be a great pairing. Taurus men and Capricorn women are also both loyal and want the other partner to be happy.
It always helps to have full chart readings done so that the two of you can gauge what other influences might be lurking around your personalities – you can get your personal astrology reading on Keen. For example, if both of you have a lot of Cancer aspects in your chart, your home life could see a lot of focus.
Taurus men and Capricorn women work and play well together. Enjoy your time in each other’s company!
