Taurus and Capricorn are two earth signs that are creatures of habit— they have their routines, and they appreciate stability in their lives. Particularly for the conservative Capricorn, discipline and order are above all else.

But sometimes, too much stability and monotony can cause problems in a relationship, and this is something these two need to watch out for. While it may never become a problem for Capricorn, Taurus may find themselves needing just a bit of excitement in their relationship and their daily lives.

If this pair can manage to reach a point in their relationship where they both feel emotionally attached and dedicated to each other, then it will take a lot to break them up. Capricorn will come out of their comfort zone to make Taurus happy, and Taurus will certainly be mindful of Capricorn’s boundaries and limits.

Communication & Intellect


Capricorn and Taurus have similar intellects but they’re derived from slightly different places. Capricorn is the embodiment of discipline. That means that whatever they know, they know very well because they dedicated the time and energy required to learn and master the skill.

In contrast with Capricorn, Taurus’ intellect comes less from having a disciplined nature, and more from having an analytical way of thinking. They will always approach things from as many different angles as they can, making it their priority to uncover the truth about something before making a judgment.

Capricorn and Taurus will almost always find common ground due to their intellect. Their relationship and conversations will be characterized by an intense respect for one another. Taurus will admire Capricorn’s discipline and determination to follow through with anything they start, and Capricorn will admire Taurus’ objectivity and level-headedness.

That being said, Capricorn can be even more stubborn than Taurus, and be unwilling to see things from multiple perspectives the way Taurus does. This can be a source of disagreement for them, as Taurus is more patient and understanding of the emotional side of things, while Capricorn is often entrenched in tradition and old-school ways of thinking. They also have a tendency to behave like know-it-alls, and Taurus isn’t likely to tolerate this.

Thankfully, Taurus is the most patient of partners. They won’t lose their cool with Capricorn’s stubbornness the way a fire sign would. They’re willing to invest the time in their partner and their relationship to find common ground and solutions to their disputes.

Emotions & Sex


Since both Capricorn and Taurus are earth signs, neither of them are the hot-headed, emotional type. This is not to say that they don’t feel things very intensely. However, they are guarded and not expressive about what they’re feeling like Cancer or Pisces.

Taurus is particularly guarded when it comes to getting into romantic relationships. The last thing they want is to waste their time investing in someone who isn’t interested in a long-term relationship. And because they love infrequently, and very intensely, they don’t want to open themselves up to heartbreak.

Capricorn is known for having walls up around their heart, and they do not open up or love easily. They must be really impressed with their partner before they decide to let them in. Again, Taurus’ patience is a big asset to their relationship here. As long as Taurus sees a lot of potential in the future of their relationship, they’re willing to invest the time it takes to get Capricorn to open their heart.

The truth is that physical intimacy between these two won’t be characterized by sparks and fiery passion. Capricorn is known for being conservative, and this extends into their sex lives. Meanwhile, Taurus can be a bit shy and reserved. They need an outgoing partner (like a fire sign) to spice up things in bed as they’re unlikely to take initiative to do so on their own.

In some ways, these two make a great pair on a physical level, because they’ll likely establish a strong foundation of trust. They’ll feel safe and comfortable in each other’s arms. For Capricorn, this may be enough. But it’s possible that for Taurus, it won’t be. If Taurus does reach this point, they’ll likely find themselves with two options: to either take it upon themselves to introduce a more adventurous style in bed, or to move on and find a partner that has that adventure they’re looking for.



Taurus’ number one value is trust and loyalty. Without these things, they can’t possibly move a relationship forward. This won’t be a point of conflict for these two though, because Capricorn simply doesn’t lie. They don’t see any reason to. Dishonesty is beneath them.

Because Capricorn values discipline and consistency, you can expect them to be very invested in their career. Capricorns like to be providers, but more importantly, they are achievers. Once they set their minds to something, failure is not an option. They’re willing to work long hours and make personal sacrifices to achieve success.

Taurus is no lazy sign. They too take pride in a job well done. But they also value their personal time and like to enjoy the finer things in life. The stubborn, old-fashioned Capricorn might see this as a turn-off. In their eyes, Taurus may seem lazy and unmotivated.

The best way for these two to approach this situation is for Capricorn to take a step back and try to enjoy some relaxation time with their partner. The ever-patient Taurus will try to reason with Capricorn, telling them that without a little time off to unwind and recharge, they won’t be able to perform at their best in their job. This is one of the only ways that Taurus will be able to convince Capricorn to take some time off and relax.



Because these two are very intelligent signs with great problem-solving skills, they’ll likely make a great team. From a professional perspective, they’d be great business partners or colleagues. In fact, many Taurus-Capricorn couples end up meeting at work.

Other activities that these two may enjoy together include chess and games that require thinking. They’d also enjoy playing sports together or learning new skills. Capricorn will enjoy having a new hobby to exercise their discipline in, and Taurus enjoys the process of learning new things.

One area where these two may not see eye to eye is when it comes to more adventurous activities. Because Taurus enjoys expensive and fancy experiences, they’re likely up for traveling to unique destinations and trying out-there kinds of activities. For the conservative, Capricorn, this might push them to their limits. Capricorn enjoys the things they already know, and aren’t always interested in stepping out of their comfort zones.

Again, the only way for these two to handle their differences is with patience and understanding. Thankfully, both of these signs don’t like to change relationships often. They like to find their person and stick with them. Once they’ve done that, they’re unlikely to let small squabbles break up their relationship.
