What we have here is the potential for a dream team – industrious, driven and twin perfectionists Virgo/Capricorn have never heard the word “can’t”. Together they’ll move mountains, raise high achieving families and carve out stellar careers. It’s an impressive body of work that at times requires reflection – something neither are particularly good at.
If they do manage to pace themselves and stop hurtling towards the next goal post, sweet moments of pride and enjoyment will soften the need to aim for a continually higher benchmark. Virgo/Capricorns must understand that perfection is not always sustainable to avoid burnout and disillusionment.
The Virgo and Capricorn Friendships
Their rivalry is legendary – whether it be sports, work or business related. Virgo/Capricorn have an intensely serious friendship that often lasts forever. Neither are time wasters so they’ll pack as much as possible into catch ups – think a half marathon followed by a cooking class followed by stock market analysis.
Often other people find these signs intimidating and avoid taking them to task but that’s one of the great things about this friendship combination – they are brutally honest and respect each other’s feedback. Virgo looks out for Capricorns metal health which deteriorates when overworked and Capricorn stops Virgo from overthinking the smallest details.
Being earth element signs Virgo/Capricorn are also naturally materialistic and here is when the competitiveness can become obsessive. They’ll compare children, houses, careers and partners and have been known to get into financial trouble just to “outdo” each other. Partners may have to step in and say, “enough is enough” – particularly when they start bidding for private jets and the crown jewels.
First signs of attraction & compatibility
This is the sort of couple who hook up through dating agencies and apps. To them, swipe and like or paying someone to vet the field is highly efficient and practical. Both are likely to be busy career people with Virgo often working long hours in health services and Capricorn chipping away at the corporate ladder – outsourcing compatibility match-ups just makes sense.
The initial attraction is evident by their close physical proximity – Capricorn has a wide personal space ruling and Virgo won’t tolerate smelly breath or poor hygiene. A second or third date is also a definitely sign of attraction – Virgo/Capricorn won’t start something that’s not going anywhere.
The Virgo and Capricorn in relationships
They are the kind of couple that give us mere mortals “couple envy”. Blessed with impeccable style and a sense of purpose they make decisions together and support each other’s goals and aspirations. You won’t know if there’s stormy weather because neither would be seen creating a public spectacle.
Co-habitation occurs after a lengthy dating period and a hard look at shared expenses. Holidays are taken at 5-star resorts with a plethora of outdoor sports and activities. Their home is modern and decked out with the latest appliances and furnishings. Virgo/Capricorn are not the sort of couple you check on Facebook for an ego boost.
Whilst they gain many friends Virgo/Capricorn also tend to shed people who are no longer useful or successful enough. Family members and acquaintances may feel used and at times over looked – it’s a habit that could bite Virgo/Capricorn in the bum during hard times or when they need a genuine friend. Sometimes a lesson in humility wouldn’t go astray with this couple.
Where they may encounter turbulence
Capricorn can be quite cold and becomes frustrated with Virgos neuroses. Withdrawal of compassion makes Virgo clingy and unable to shut up which causes Capricorn to retreat behind an invisible wall. Although they are similar creatures, differences must be respected – yes Virgo is anxious and yes Capricorn is overly disciplined – learn to live with it people!
The other potential minefield is becoming stuck in a rut. Sometimes one sign turns around after many years and realizes this isn’t the life they wanted and suddenly yearns for something more adventurous and daring. This can result in an affair or running away to join the circus. The best advice is to not take anything for granted and throw the odd spanner into the relationship works.
When Virgo and Capricorn fall in love
If each sign ticks all the relationship boxes, “falling in love” is a given. Virgo/Capricorn are rational, practical creatures who like to impress so expect a new wardrobe, makeover and social media updates. They have similar taste in the finer things – think French restaurants, opera and art galleries for date night venues. Capricorn may even cut back a little on work hours to spend more time with their new love and Virgo gets the odd tension headache and stomach – both signs of “falling in love”.
They’ll test each other out with introductions to family, employers and other important connections – it matters a lot how well partners conduct themselves in such social situations. Virgo/Capricorn also like to do things properly so the “in love” announcement will be beautifully planned and not some off the cuff remark during sexual activities – think a gondola in Venice or champagne breakfast whilst hot air ballooning.
Virgo and Capricorn Sexual Compatibility
Interestingly its Virgo who loosens up Capricorn in the bedroom – as a mutable sign they are more adaptable and like to freely express themselves – particularly between the sheets.
Capricorn finds it hard to achieve real intimacy at the best of times but has high level of sexual energy and this is where Virgo needs to add finesse and sensuality to that energy. Capricorn, as a cardinal sign normally likes to lead and direct but not in the bedroom – let Virgo give the orders or sex will just become an over-scheduled chore.
Virgo and Capricorn Marriage Compatibility
Yes, marriage will be penciled in – and children – and a property portfolio. As earth signs they plant from the ground up and always in sequential order. The wedding is likely to be a society event and may take Virgo/Capricorn several years to save for – before that there’ll be several years saving for the engagement ring.
There’ll definitely be a wishing well as neither trusts anyone elses’ taste when it comes to buying gifts. The honeymoon is bound to be exotic and harmonious – as long as Capricorn leaves work back at home – no emails, no texts, no social media!
Children are loved and adored but may rebel against their parent’s high expectations. It’s not unusual for Virgo/Capricorn to end up with a couple of hippy kids who live in Indian ashrams. In many cases children teach Virgo/Capricorn valuable lessons on tolerance and acceptance.
The family home, at times, is more like a family mansion – including swimming pool and tennis courts and Virgo does everything within their power to ensure that offspring get the very best education. When and if Virgo/Capricorn become Grandparents, they turn into the softest, most doting and indulgent creatures ever and their children nearly die of shock.
